Publisher Comments:

Published in Cooperation with the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies
In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Mexicans and Americans joined together to transform the U.S.and#150;Mexico borderlands into a crossroads of modern economic development. This book reveals the forgotten story of their ambitious dreams and their ultimate failure to control this fugitive terrain.

Focusing on a mining region that spilled across the Arizonaand#150;Sonora border, this book shows how entrepreneurs, corporations, and statesmen tried to domesticate nature and society within a transnational context. Efforts to tame a and#147;wildand#8221; frontier were stymied by labor struggles, social conflict, and revolution. Fugitive Landscapes explores the making and unmaking of the U.S.and#150;Mexico border, telling how ordinary people resisted the domination of empires, nations, and corporations to shape transnational history on their own terms.and#160; By moving beyond traditional national narratives, it offers new lessons for our own border-crossing age.
