THE CENTER FOR INTERNATIONAL POLICY IS PROUD TO PRESENT...
Tom Barry's Newest Book Now Available From MIT Press
The Center for International Policy is pleased to announce the publication of Tom Barry's Border Wars, a Boston Review book published by MIT Press. Tom Barry is director of CIP's TransBorder Project, based in Silver City, New Mexico.
Border Wars stands alone. By weaving together the inside stories of the rising border hawks, the border immigrant gulag, Rick Perry's border security campaign in Texas, and the new drug wars in the borderlands, Barry offers readers the complex tapestry of the politics of homeland security ten years after 9/11.
What makes Border Wars so distinctive and compelling is its unusual blend of investigative reporting and policy analysis from someone who lives and works in our conflicted borderlands. Buy it here.
Barry has also been busy writing and publishing articles on the various subjects - from Rick Perry to a retrospective on border security 10 years after 9/11. Read his most recent articles below.
