What is included with this book?


With their unique blending of culture, language, and economics, the U.S. and Mexican border regions have experienced rapid demographic and economic growth over the last fifty years. Economically, the border divides countries with one of the world's largest cross-border income gaps. In as symmetrical a manner as possible, this book studies the nature and dynamics of this growth and what it has meant to the lives of dwellers on both sides of the border.
