Review

Fernando Romero's brilliant new book -- Metropolitan News-Enterprise, June 6, 2008

Romero's work transcends the usual debate on immigration issues...augmented by some of the most impressive charts and photographs this reviewer has ever seen in a text. The book is well written and fully footnoted. It should appeal to a wide variety of academics interested in the US-Mexico border area and the issues confronting this area. Summing up: Recommended. -- Choice, February 2008

Format: Paperback
There is no other book that explains better what the US/Mexico Border is. It should be read by all of those that want to understand issues about the border including policy makers at all levels.

It is important that we understand the integrartion between Mexico and the United States that exist and that can have a very possitive impact to the economy of both countries.

This is a must for all Universities.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Lots of graphics and photos, but the whole book was written basically by surfing the internet. There are several conflicting statstical citations. Flashy, but there are a lot of better books on the subject.
