With Border Culture, Ilan Stavans has collected essays representative of the tangled experiences and issues central to life between cultures. Divided into two sections, Border Culture covers topics essential to better understanding this often misunderstood region and state-of-mind.

The first section, Considerations, culls essays covering socio-economic and political topics illustrating the hyper reality of life and living on La Frontera. Section two, Testimonios, takes careful consideration of lives affected by the border, either as a finite place, alternate universe, or the framework of the border as a state-of-mind, through various historic and literary accounts of La Frontera.

This enlightening and comprehensive collection will no doubt help readers better understand border culture.
