This update of a beautifully written ethnography on Yucatecan migrants in Dallas, TX, is a “best-of” in Allyn & Bacon's New Immigrants Series.

Through fascinating vignettes and case studies, this unique text illustrates how these migrants actively maintain social ties across borders and paints a vivid picture of the people and their lives, it also places them in the context of current U.S. immigration policy. This is a must-read book that will mesmerize students and bring them up to speed on one of the most crucial issues facing the U.S. today.
