Rezensionen
"Well researched and documented. Very readable narrative. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All academic levels/libraries." (Choice, 1 December 2011)"Given all the ranting over Mexican immigration - on bothsides of the issue - it's like a breath of farm-freshair in fall to have a book that quietly and concisely explains howwe got here."
Sam Quinones, author of Antonio's Gun and Delfino's Dream:True Tales of Mexican Migration

"Beyond Borders delivers on its title by synthesizing acomplex binational history. Highly readable, it is an excellentresource for students, policymakers, and anyone interested inbetter understanding a process that is profoundly important forboth the United States and Mexico."
David FitzGerald, Gildred Chair in U.S.-Mexican Relations,University of California, San Diego, author of A Nation ofEmigrants: How Mexico Manages its Migration
