Part history, part political analysis, and part memoir, this is an intensely personal work by one of our most important writers. Hanson is perhaps known best for his military histories and especially his social commentary about America and its response to terror after September 11. But he is also a fifth-generation Californian who runs a family farm in the Central Valley and has written eloquent elegies for the decline of the small farm such as 'Fields Without Dreams' and 'The Land Was Everything'. Like these books, 'Mexifornia' is an intensely personal look at what has changed in California over the last quarter century. In this case, however, Hanson's focus is on how not only California, the Southwest, and indeed the entire nation has been affected by America's haemorrhaging borders and how those hurt worst are the Mexican immigrants themselves. Hanson writes wistfully about his own growing up in the Central Valley when he was one of a handful of non-Hispanics in his elementary school and when his teachers saw it as their mission to give all students, Hispanic and 'white' alike, a passport to the American Dream. He follows the fortunes of Hispanic friends he has known all his life -- how they have succeeded in America and how they regard the immigration crisis.

Victor Davis Hanson is the military historian who is a professor of classics at California State University, Fresno. He has written several popular books on classic warfare, including "The Other Greeks", "Who Killed Homer?", & "The Western Way of War". He lives in Selma, California.
