MIT Press, August 2011

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.
