New Books of interest

María de los Ángeles Picone's picture

Dear H-Borderlands Subscribers,

We have resumed our work in curating the latest titles from the Book Channel that might be of interest to you. Do you want to read about gold rushes at a global scale? What about the work of first responders in the U.S.-Mexico border? Or the design of the legendary Orient Express? Maybe a new perspective on the incorporation of Hawai'i as a state? Or, maybe, about the neoliberal making of a Patagonian enclave?

Scroll down to see all titles! 

As always, if you are interested in becoming a reviewer for our network, e-mail me to the address below.

 

Best,

Ángeles Picone
