Open Borders to a Revolution: Culture, Politics, and Migration

Edited by Jaime Marroquín Arredondo, Adela Pineda Franco, and Magdalena Mieri

This book studies the effects of the Mexican Revolution in the United States in such spheres as diplomacy, politics, and intellectual thought. To mark the bicentennial of Latin America’s independence from Spain and the centennial of the Mexican Revolution, the Smithsonian partnered with several institutions and organized a series of cultural events, among them an academic symposium. This volume consolidates the results of that symposium, adding new voices, and providing a wide-ranging exploration of the Mexican Revolution.
