Culture Across Borders is the first book-length study to analyze a wide range of cultural manifestations of the Mexican immigration experience, including art, literature, cinema, corridos (folk songs), and humor. It shows how Mexican immigrants have been depicted in popular culture–both in Mexico and the United States–and how Mexican and Chicano/Chicana artists, writers, intellectuals, and others have used artistic means to protest the unjust treatment of immigrants by U.S. authorities.
