The U.S.-Mexican Border in the Twentieth Century is the first comprehensive treatment of the unique evolution of the border region from the beginning of the twentieth century to the present.

This book draws on the findings of the classic literature, new research, and the most recent data to explore the different roles that external influences and internal developments have played in shaping the region.
