The U.S.-Mexico borderlands have long supported a web of relationships that transcend the U.S. and Mexican nations. While national histories have tended to overlook these complex connections, Continental Crossroads rewrites borderlands history by focusing on them. The contributors to this collection chronicle the transnational processes that bound Mexico and the United States together during the borderlands' formative era-from the early nineteenth century into the 1940s.
