Illusions of Empire: The Civil War and Reconstruction in the U.S.-Mexico Borderlands
Download Full Text
Illusions of Empire adopts a multinational view of North American borderlands and border lines, examining the ways in which Mexico's north overlapped with America's Southwest in the contexts of diplomacy, politics, economics, and military operations. Beyond these direct historical arguments, the U.S.-Mexico borderlands provide a case study for the overt and covert nature of diplomacy in regions of contested sovereignty.
