The U.S.-Mexico Transborder Region
- Cultural Dynamics and Historical Interactions
The U.S.-Mexico Transborder Region presents advanced anthropological theorizing of culture in an important regional setting. Not a static entity, the transborder region is peopled by ever-changing groups who face the challenges of social inequality: political enforcement of privilege, economic subordination of indigenous communities, and organized resistance to domination. Editors Carlos V?lez-Ib??ez and Josiah Heyman envision this region as involving diverse and unequal social groups in dynamic motion over thousands of years. Thus the historical interaction of the U.S.-Mexico border, however massively unequal and powerful, is only the most recent manifestation of this longer history and common ecology. Contributors emphasize the dynamic ?transborder? quality?conflicts, resistance, slanting, displacements, and persistence?in order to combine a critical perspective on unequal power relations with a questioning perspective on claims to bounded simplicity and perfection.
