Border Wars

by: Tom Barry

Publisher: MIT Press (2011)

$9.75

Staff Pick by comrade: sea coats

This book provides a well researched and wide ranging portrait of the borderlands. It focuses heavily on private prisons and other corporate interests in the region. While the author is lacking in his proposed solutions, I don't think that detracts from his documentation of what is happening in the region.
