Border Games and Border Thinking: A Review of Border Games: Policing the U.S.-Mexico Divide

The Border Patrol’s longstanding strategy has sought to force unauthorized crossings from urbanized areas into more remote areas. In Border Games: Policing the U.S.-Mexico Divide, the culmination of many years of research, Peter Andreas marshals a mountain of evidence and meticulous, authoritative analysis to argue that the border enforcement narrative obscures how border policy has fundamentally structured, conditioned, and, at times, unintentionally enabled unauthorized crossings.
