Summary
  • "An anthology of writing by Mexican journalists, historians, novelists, and artists on the immigration crisis in the United States"--
  • Despite the extensive coverage in the U.S. media of the southern border and Donald Trump's proposed wall, most English speakers have had little access to the multitude of perspectives from Mexico on the ongoing crisis. Boullosa and Quintero redress this imbalance with this collection of essays, translated into English for the first time, drawing on writing by journalists, novelists, and documentary-makers who are Mexican or based in Mexico. They discuss important questions, including the history of U.S.-Mexican relations, and questions of sovereignty, citizenship, and borders. -- adapted from jacket
