Acerca de


"In this insightful and concisely written book, George Diaz shows for how much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries illicit smuggling played a central role in the daily lives of border people." * Pacific Historical Review * "If one is to understand our current situation with Mexico, one only has to look to Diaz's Border Contraband. . . . a great addition to the history of the US-Mexican borderlands, giving both countries insight into the making of the border. Diaz has set the international research bar high, and as a result scholars and students will greatly benefit from such research." * Hispanic American Historical Review * "A solidly researched volume that gives historical background to a contemporary hot topic, Border Contraband also demonstrates how smuggling has been a central part of borderlands Mexican American culture and lore." * Journal of American Studies * "Diaz's Border Contraband is a gem. His clear and concise writing that brings in theory without all the theoretical jargon will make this an excellent option for upper-division undergraduate courses and graduate courses in both world history and borderlands studies. . . . Unlike many treatments of the U.S.-Mexico border, Diaz's is truly transnational." * World History Connected * "A well-researched historical study of smuggling along the Texas-Mexican border. Thorough and innovative . . . It is a work well done and worthwhile." * Southwestern Historical Quarterly * "Historian Diaz provides a lively narrative of the smuggling and trafficking across the Rio Grande River from 1848 to 1945." * Choice * ""What governments define as illegal and what people consider wrong can differ widely," observes George T. Diaz in this engaging history of smuggling along the Texas-Mexico border. . . . The flesh and blood he gives this history makes it a strong book for classroom adoption. . . . It offers a productive point of departure-a way of conceptualizing the social worlds of smuggling-that will shape scholarly conversations about this region for years to come. " * Journal of American History *
