    1. Wonderful book about the Arizona-Sonora copper borderlands, narrating the story of US capitalists' focus on first expanding mining markets in Sonora, then the capitalist consolidation and industrial transformation of that area. Complex and interesting read.


    2. Reminder excerpt from analysis for HIST 400 Fugitive Landscapes, by Samuel Truett, is a historical examination of the US-Mexico borderlands through a lens of the appropriation of space and landscapes. The book is structured in chapter-stories that follow the story of one town through its history, then shift to another landscape in the next chapter. The US-Mexico borderlands were constantly shifting in the American perception as well as in reality. Truett calls attention to the idea that borders [...]


    3. The author does a good job of conveying his argument about how the US-Arizona border had its own rules during the formation of the borderlands that separated the United States and Mexico. His version of how labor was manipulated by the Copper Mining companies in the area on both sides of the border is detailed and to the point.


    4. I read this book to prepare for an NEH Summer Seminar on the history and ecology of the US/Mexico border. I was intrigued by the thesis--that the borderlands have escaped our varied attempts to subdue/tame them.


    5. Must reading for all those interested in new ways of thinking about environmental history or the U.S.-Mexico borderlands.
