  • I've actually only read one chapter of this book but when I have some time on my hands I plan to read more. Excellent. Clear. Relevant.


  • Praise for Dying To Live:"Nevins’s book, thanks to excellent research and a nuanced application of theory, demonstrates not only professional excellence but also an ongoing commitment to justice and human rights. By calling the entire notion of a 'right to be here' into question, Dying to Live serves as a powerful antidote to nationalistic amnesia on the part of the U.S. public, which has been too willing to embrace a shortsighted version of U.S.-Mexican history. By analyzing enforcement in th [...]


  • In today’s society, issues of immigration are at the forefront politically, culturally, and socially. A number of political leaders have raised the idea of a tougher border patrol between the United States and Mexico and deportation of illegal immigrants, creating an “us” and “them” dynamic that contributes to dissension and unrest.Dying to Live examines the history of immigration as it affects both the United States and Mexico. The story stems from the deaths of Julio César Gallegos [...]


  • This book is incredibly thought-provoking, it provides a compelling case for people to challenge the accepted (and enforced) idea that the border between the U.S. and Mexico is a valid one. It examines in depth the racial and socioeconomic power differences between those living on each side, and how racism has played a huge part in the creation of the idea of the border, and how life is ordered on each side of it. This book presents an exhaustive history of relations between the two nations, not [...]


  • I was quite impressed by the thorough piece of work that is Joe Nevins's "Operation Gatekeeper." This book, however, also provides a more concrete human connection by complementing the meticulously documented history of Mexican immigration to the U.S. and racist legal and extra-legal harassment of same with the tragic story of one hard-working family man who died in the California desert trying to reach his loved ones. I kept thinking of the the Latino power slogan "I didn't cross the border, th [...]


  • This is an excellent treatment of immigration that looks at both the "big picture" as well as distinct personal stories and on-the-ground examples. Nevins, a geography professor, examines the history of U.S. expansion and the changing U.S.-Mexico boundary along with the changing social dynamic around migration and how how it has related to ideas of race, nationalism, security, sovereignty, and economics. While filled with supporting footnotes and citations, the book is a surprisingly easy read. [...]


  • One quote: "In a world of profound inequality, there are few if any nations that share a land boundary with the level of disparity as wide as that between Mexico and the United States. Which side of a boundary one is born on--something that is permanent and that one cannot change--profoundly shapes the resources to which one has access, the amount of political power one has, where one can go, and thus how one lives and dies. This is the essence of racism as it allows for double standards based o [...]


  • I had to read it for my Minorities class at school. Makes you rethink what the media feeds you about "Illegal" Immigrants and this helps explain their struggles and everything the White man put them through.


  • excellent! perhaps because it's written by a geographer, this book provides a thoughtful critique of the nation-state and, as a result, questions the very legitimacy of laws policing national boundaries.
