The Limits Of Liberty
Mobility And The Making Of The Eastern U.S.-Mexico Border
de James David Nichols
Sobre o livro
Chronicles the formation of the US-Mexico border from the perspective of the ""mobile peoples"" who assisted in determining the international boundary from both sides in the mid-nineteenth century. In this historic and timely study, James David Nichols argues against the many top-down connotations that borders carry, noting that the state cannot entirely dominate the process of boundary marking.
