Overview

The 2,000-mile-long international boundary between the United States and Mexico gives shape to a unique social, economic, and cultural entity. The U.S.-Mexican Border in the Twentieth Century is the first comprehensive treatment of the fascinating evolution of the region since the beginning of the twentieth century. Drawing on the findings of the classic literature, new research, and current data, David E. Lorey considers the different roles that external influences and internal developments have played in shaping the border. Exploring the evolution of a distinct border society, Lorey traces broad themes in the region's history, including geographical constraints, boom-and-bust cycles, and outside influences. He also examines the seminal twentieth-century events that have shaped life in the area, such as Prohibition, World War II, and economic globalization. Bringing the analysis up to the present, the book assesses such divisive issues as the distinction between legal and illegal migration, trends in transboundary migrant flows, and North American free trade. Informative and accessible, this valuable study is ideal for courses on the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, Chicano studies, Mexican history, and Mexican-American history.

Editorial Reviews

Multicultural Review
An excellent synthesis. This book fulfills its purpose well.
CHOICE
[This] brief but comprehensive survey emphasizes economic, social, and demographic changes along the U.S.-Mexican border.
Linda B. Hall
An excellent, comprehensive treatment of the recent history of the U.S.-Mexican border area, The U.S.-Mexican Border in the Twentieth Century explains the important social, political, and economic developments in the region in a clear and accessible manner.
David R. Maciel
A major interpretation of one of the world's most intriguing areas—the U.S.-Mexico Border, la frontera. To date, the very best single synthesis of the salient themes and issues of the twentieth-century border.
Don M. Coerver
A well-organized and highly readable study of the border as a frontier, an international boundary, and a region. David Lorey takes a complex subject and makes it understandable, even for those with little or no familiarity with the theme. The range of topics and the breadth of the time period covered are well conceived. The author clearly demonstrates the accuracy of his observation that the reality of the border is far more interesting than popular myths and stereotypes suggest.
'scar J. Martinez
A most welcome addition to the literature on the U.S.-Mexico borderlands. Lorey presents an outstanding survey of the historical forces, processes, and events that have produced the transnational economy and society for which the region is so well known. Because of its clarity, conciseness, coverage of salient themes, and wonderful photographs, this book will prove extremely useful in the classroom. At the same time, its contents will appeal to specialists and general readers.
Paul Ganster
A superb analytical overview of the border region in the twentieth century. Perfect for use in undergraduate and graduate courses.
