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
