About this book

Through an analysis of Cold War Era films including Border Incident , Where Danger Lives , and Touch of Evil , Stephanie Fuller illustrates how cinema across genres developed an understanding of what the U.S.-Mexico border meant within the American cultural imaginary and the ways in which it worked to produce the border.

Reviews

"We have before us a book of sustained promise. In looking south instead of east (and north rather than west) Fuller studies a variety of situations and stereotypes whose force of expression is found not in genre or storyline but in spatial displacement and movement, interconnection, interrelation, intercession, and the like. She takes up films that perhaps only human and historical geographies would consider in the same breath: Border Incident, Borderline, Where Danger Lives, Border River, Wetbacks, The Tijuana Story, and, last but never least, Touch of Evil." - Tom Conley, Departments of Visual Studies and Romance Languages, Harvard University, USA
