About this title

Synopsis:

This is the first book-length study of Tijuana in English in over a decade. It is an in-depth history which theorizes a symbiotic frontierķa frontier of mutually advantageous interdependence between two different socioeconomic and cultural urban centers: San Diego and Tijuana. It surveys Tijuana's history from prehistoric times to the present as a series of sequential and interrelated frontiers. The author offers a sociocultural history, not just a political survey, studying Tijuana not in isolation but within its geographic, social, and cultural contexts. Individual chapters cover the geographic and historical backgrounds, Indians, missions, religions, ranching, filibustering, migration, tourism, industry, smuggling, and interdependency between San Diego and Tijuana. It includes an appendix detailing sources for studying Tijuana and an extensive bibliography, plus photographs, maps, and charts.
