Especially relevant in today's America, Andrew Selee’s Vanishing Frontiers: The Forces Driving Mexico and the United States Together illustrates how the U.S.-Mexico border is more like a seam than a barrier. With or without a wall, deeply intertwined social, economic, business, cultural, and personal relationships weave together the two economies. Through portraits of business leaders, migrants, chefs, movie directors, police officers, and media and sports executives, this book looks at this emerging Mexico, showing how it increasingly influences our daily lives in the United States in surprising ways--the jobs we do, the goods we consume, and even the new technology and entertainment we enjoy. Andrew Selee, President of the Migration Policy Institute and past Director of the Wilson Center's Mexico Institute, will be in conversation with George Mason University Professor Guadalupe Correa-Cabrera, author of Los Zetas Inc. Together they will paint a realistic portrait of the border region that few Americans see. Sponsored by the Institute for Immigration Research and the Schar School of Policy and Government.
