Synopsis: "La región fronteriza del norte del país es el hogar del antropólogo Carlos Veléz-Ibáñez quien en estas páginas vierte casi medio siglo de investigación sobre la experiencia de los mexicanos en el suroeste del vecino país. Describe y analiza el proceso mediante el cual, una tras otra, las generaciones de mexicanos han emigrado hacia el norte en un intento por arraigar una identidad y un 'sentido de espacio y de lugar cultural' propios. En las almbradas que hoy demarcan la frontera, el autor también ve las barreras al entendimiento de los mexicanos, de si mismos y por parte de los demás. Desde la prehistoria haste el presente Vélez-Ibáñez rastrea el intenso ir y venir a lo largo de la región de los nativos americanos, los españoles y los mexicanos, de las poblaciones mesoamericanas y de las ideas. Analiza la 'distribucion de la tristeza', o la sobrerrepresentación de los mexicanos en la pobreza, el crimen, la enfermedad y la guerra, y como esa tristeza encuentra su equilibrio en las expresiones creativas de la literatura y el arte, particularmente en el muralismo y en la permanente búsqueda de un lugar y un espacio. 'Visiones de frontera: Las culturas mexicanas del suroeste de los Estados Unidos', es un libro que aborda temas como el TCL, las complejas interrogantes del fenómeno de migración, y la expansiva población de mexicanos, tanto en la región fronteriza como en otras partes del país." [Excerpt taken from back cover's book review.]

Book Description Miguel Angel Porrua, Mexico City, 1999. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 374 pages with charts, tables, plates, maps and bibliography. Octavo (9" x6 3/4") bound in original publisher's pictorial wrappers. Prolog by Carlos Monsivais. Translated by Katia Rheault. First Spanish edition limited to 1000 copies, published in English by the University of Arizona same year. The U.S.-Mexico border region is home to anthropologist Carlos Velez-Ibanez. Into these pages he pours nearly half a century of searching and finding answers to the Mexican experience in the southwestern United States. He describes and analyzes the process, as generation upon generation of Mexicans moved north and attempted to create an identity or "sense of cultural space and place". In today's border fences he also sees barriers to how Mexicans understand themselves and how they are fundamentally understood. From prehistory to the present, Velez-Ibanez traces the intense "bumping" among Native Americans, Spaniards, and Mexicans, as Mesoamerican population and ideas moved northward. He demonstrates how "cultural glue" is constantly replenished through strong family ties that reach across both sides of the border. The author describes ways in which Mexicans have resisted and accommodated the dominant culture by creating communities and by forming labor unions, voluntary associations, and cultural movements. He analyzes "the distribution of sadness", or over represenation of Mexicans in poverty, crime, illness, and war, and shows how that sadness is balanced by creative expressions of literature and art, especially mural art, in the ongoing search for space and place. Here is a book for the nineties and beyond, a book the relates to NAFTA, to complex questions of immigration, and to the expanding population of Mexicans in the U.S.-Mexico border region and other parts of the country. An important new volume for social science, humanities, and Latin American scholars, Border Visions will also attract general readers for its robust narrative and autobiographical edge. For all readers, the book points to new ways of seeing borders, whether they are visible walls of brick and stone or less visible, infinitely more powerful barriers of the mind.
