On the Rim of Mexico: Encounters of the Rich and Poor

By Ramón Eduardo Ruiz | Go to book overview

Sources

For the Mexican side of the border, studies by the Colegio de la Frontera Norte are unsurpassed. The Colegio, a Mexican-government think tank with headquarters a few miles south of Tijuana, has offices in every major border city. Dedicated to the study of border issues, scholars at the Colegio publish articles and books on subjects ranging from immigrants to assembly plants. Virtually nothing of prime importance escapes their attention, although cultural questions, in the mold of contemporary social science research, are hardly a top priority. Together, these articles, books, and unpublished manuscripts are the single most valuable collection of materials on the life of border Mexicans, and equally important, they include sundry statistics on topics such as social conditions, immigrants' moving back and forth across international boundaries, wages and hours of maquiladora workers, and so forth. Every two years, moreover, scholars from every branch of the Colegio come together in Tijuana for two days of intellectual discussion, during which they present their latest findings to each other and to invited scholars from both Mexico and the United States. So far, there have been four "COLEFS," as the meetings are called. Some of the manuscripts are eventually published; but whether in print or not, they are splendid tools for students of Mexican border affairs. Following is a list of the unpublished manuscripts I have used from three meetings of Colegio scholars.
