Comparative U.S.-Mexico Border Studies.
Stoddard, Ellwyn R., Ed.
Four United States universities, one from each American state having a common boundary with Mexico, organized the Border-State University Consortium for Latin America. The organization emerged as an attempt to focus collectively on problems and situations immediately accessible for study in a series of publications entitled "Occasional Papers." This document contains 2 contributions to literature. The first contribution, as indicated by the title "Comparative Structures and Attitudes Along the U.S.-Mexico Border," is a comparison of social structures and attitudes from 2 distinct nationality groups. The second contribution, "Trends and Problems of Urbanization in the United States-Mexico Border Area," is the study of the patterns of internal migration and economic development in Latin American countries as related to the United States-Mexico border area. Included are bibliographies related to each paper. (EJ)
