Summary: 'The most fascinating parts of this well-presented book are the interviews with all types of border people (one man estimates being caught by immigration officials five times in one day) and many women who've had to endure harsh treatment while living in Mexico and legally working in the U.S. In all, Martinez has extensively covered one of America's most historically pressing concerns and has done it with dignity and humanity for those both north and south of the border.'--Booklist

Edition/Copyright:94 Cover: Paperback Publisher:University of Arizona Press Published: 05/01/1994 International: No
"The book is enjoyable to read and it certainly makes a powerful point about the peculiar nature of border areas. . . . The use of both case studies and life histories is well mastered by the author. The contrast of the use of both in the same book shows its versatillity."
--The Latin American Anthropology Review
"Martinez's book is a succinct, clear, engrossing and well-written analysis within a historical and international perspective. . . . An important contribution to our understanding of the area."
--International Migration Review
"An important, insightful, and thought-provoking work by a first rate scholar who is not afraid to try creative approaches in order to shed new light on a complex and fascinating subject."
--Journal of Geography
