This is the best book I've ever read on the U.S.-Mexico border, and U.S. immigration in general. It does a great job of putting what takes place along the border in a global context, while grounding it in the real-life story of one migrant and his family and the specifics of the histories of particular places. I cannot recommend this book enough.
