Mexico is becoming increasingly important as a focus of U.S. immigration policy, and the movement of people across the U.S.-Mexico border is a subject of intense interest and controversy. The U.S. approach to cross-border flows is in flux, the economic climate in Mexico is uncertain, and relations between the two neighbors have entered a new stage with the launching of NAFTA. This volume draws together original essays by distinguished scholars from a variety of disciplines and both sides of the border to examine current impetuses to migration and policy options for Mexico and the U.S.

Industry Reviews

The volumes detects not only social phenomena but also different platforms from which investigations are launched on both sides of the border. One of this work's virtues is precisely that of making evident the necessity and urgency of defining problems and articulating solutions that involve both countries at different levels, taht is, conceiving and integrating, in an efficient bilateral dynamic, issues so dissimilar yet so related as foreign policy, migration, trade and economic development, social services, and border relations, without forgetting the needs that arise from an unavoidable agenda of bilateral research.--Jorge Durand, University of Guadalajara "American Journal of Sociology, July 1998, Vol.104:1 "
