The U.S.-Mexico Border Region is among the poorest geographical areas in the United States. The region has been long characterized by dual development, poor infrastructure, weak schools, health disparities and low-wage employment. More recently, the region has been affected by the violence associated with a drug and crime war in Mexico. The premise of this book is that the U.S.-Mexico Border Region is subject to systematic oppression and that the so-called social pathologies that we see in the region are by-products of social and economic injustice in the form of labor exploitation, environmental racism, immigration militarism, institutional sexism and discrimination, health inequities, a political economy based on low-wage labor, and the globalization of labor and capital. The chapters address a variety of examples of injustice in the areas of environment, health disparity, migration unemployment, citizenship, women and gender violence, mental health, and drug violence. The book proposes a pathway to development.

Leserkritik

''Social Justice on the US Mexico Border is the most comprehensive interdisciplinary book I have encountered dealing with justice and human rights issues on the US Mexico border region. The wealth of its contents stems from its interdisciplinary analysis. This book must be read by all responsible policy makers who have the capacity to influence the living conditions of millions of people living between two cultures, two worlds and two ways of life."

Hector Luis Diaz, Ph.D., Professor and Chair, Department of Social Work, The Univrsity of Texas - Pan American

 

"Social Justice in the the U.S.-Mexico Border Region frames the broad issues of how to value human rights and bring dignity to the lives marginalized border residents. The conceptual framework allows the reader to gain insights about how gender and violence are often linked, health disparities are magnified, and services like mental health care are so challenging to navigate in the borderlands. I strongly recommend this book for those seeking to better understand the human dimension of the inequalities which exist along the U.S.-Mexico border."

Christine Thurlow Brenner, Ph.D. President, Association of Borderlands Studies, Associate Professor of Public Policy and Public Affairs University of Massachusetts
