Presents an outstanding survey of the historical forces, processes, and events that have produced the transnational economy and society for which the region is so well known. Because of its clarity, conciseness, coverage of salient themes, and wonderful photographs, this book will prove extremely useful in the classroom. At the same time its contents will appeal to specialists and general readers. -Oscar J.

To date, the very best single synthesis of the salient themes and issues of the twentieth-century border. -David Maciel, California State University, Dominguez Hills A well-organized and highly readable study of the border as a frontier, an international boundary, and a region [that] takes a complex subject and makes it understandable, even for those with little or no familiarity with the theme. The range of topics and the breadth of the time period covered are well conceived. [The book] clearly demonstrates the accuracy of [the] observation that the reality of the border is far more interesting than popular myths and stereotypes suggest. -Don M. Coerver, Texas Christian University An excellent, comprehensive treatment of the recent history of the U.S.-Mexican border area, [this book] explains the important social, political, and economic developments in the region in a clear and accessible manner. -Linda Hall, University of New Mexico

I read this book for a course over the study of the US/Mexico border history. The text is accurate and realistic, just dry. If you have to read this, it's not extremely terrible, but it definitely was not that interesting.
