North American Borderland Narratives - French, Spanish and Native Identities
2011 0-7734-1295-8
This work focuses on the ways in which border zones modify individual and national identity, by stressing changes resulting from the meeting of cultures.

From the Foreword:
“. . . the essays highlight various aspects of the paradoxical development of a stronger North American integration combined with a stronger militarization.”
