Summary
"Exploring the construction of spatial lines and zones in physical, social, and academic terms, this volume presents the U.S.-Mexico border as a site from which to survey both the social and economic networks and the issues of identity and symbolism that surround borders." "The editors provide a theoretical introduction to the intrinsic nature of borders, as well as an overview of current trends in borderlands studies, to serve as a framework for the contributors' case studies. A concluding section examines the implications of transcending traditional borders."--BOOK JACKET
