Focuses on the response of one particular area - San Diego's North County, a region comprising relatively wealthier communities like Cardiff-by-the Sea, Del Mar, Rancho Santa Fe,- to the presence of large numbers of Mexican immigrants. It explores the tensions generated and the innovative approaches adopted--what worked, and what did not. Contents: 1. Uneasy juxtaposition : the changing landscape of Mexican immigration in San Diego's North County; 2. Housing: Living off the land, but not in it; 3. Employment : a tale of two cities' hiring centers; 4. Education : back to a holistic schoolhouse; 5. Human rights and criminal justice: between rhetoric and reality; 6. Accessing health services : from the canyons to the clinics; 7. Bureaucratic politics and turf battles: whose problem is immigration, anyway?; 8. Sharing the costs, sharing the benefits.
