Ex Mex:
Migrants to Immigrants
Jorge G. Castañeda
(The New Press, 2007)

Well-known scholar and former Mexican foreign minister Castañeda weighs in on the nation’s most politicized domestic debate. He unravels some of the most widely held myths about Mexicans in the United States: He tells us who they are, why they’re here, where they work, and what they want. His book also offers a behind-thescenes look at secret negotiations between Mexico and the United States during Castañeda’s time in office.
