Using a variety of English- and Spanish-language primary sources from both sides of the border, Lim reveals how a borderlands region that has traditionally been defined by Mexican-Anglo relations was in fact shaped by a diverse population that came together dynamically through work and play, in the streets and in homes, through war and marriage, and in the very act of crossing the border.

What People are Saying About This
What makes this study original is its substantive inclusion of Chinese, Black, and Mexicano histories within a single frame. Lim's innovative treatment of this material will push immigration and race historians to consider longer chronologies and dynamics at play in the borderlands.Kelly Lytle Hernandez, author of City of Inmates
