Edited by Justin Ackers Chacón and Enrique Davalos

168 Pages, 5 ½" x 8 ½" ISBN 9780983783701 Retail $13.95 Wounded Border/Frontera Herida contains cuttingedge research and analysis of the important issues emerging from the U.S.-Mexico Border region today. Taking a bi-national and bilingual approach, the book captures the multiple voices and experiences of scholars, researchers, and community-based activists residing on both sides of the international boundary. It offers a unique and essential narrative from a region that both intertwines and divides nations and peoples.
“[Astute scholars] have not only studied, but given voice to those subjected to the inhumane conditions created by an imaginary boundary…. Each contributor combines historical context and analysis with fascinating narratives that deepen our understanding…” —Virginia Escalante, Pulitzer Prize recipient, Los Angeles Times
