Reviews

With essays by leading border scholars and practitioners, this book provides superb analysis of how evolving globalization and the security imperative have redefined the shared borders and border regions of the USA, Canada, and Mexico. North American Borders in Comparative Perspective is a key resource for students, scholars, the policy community, and community activists who want to understand these critical border regions of North America." - Paul Ganster, co-author of The U.S.-Mexico Border into the Twenty-First Century
