"In his scathing and deeply reported examination of the U.S. Border Patrol, Todd Miller argues that the agency has gone rogue since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, trampling on the dignity and rights of the undocumented with military-style tactics. . . . Miller's book arrives at a moment when it appears that part of the Homeland Security apparatus is backpedaling by promising to tone down its tactics, maybe prodded by investigative journalism, maybe by the revelations of NSA leaker Edward Snowden. . . . Border Patrol is quite possibly the right book at the right time . . . "--Tony Perry, Los Angeles Times “At the start of his unsettling and important new book, Border Patrol Nation, Miller observes that these days 'it is common to see the Border Patrol in places--such as Erie, Pennsylvania; Rochester, New York; or Forks, Washington--where only fifteen years ago it would have seemed far-fetched, if not unfathomable.'”--Barbara Spindel, Christian Science Monitor "Miller’s approach in Border Patrol Nation is to offer a glimpse into the secretive operations of the Border Patrol, reporting with a journalist’s objectivity and nose for a good story. Miller’s book is full of facts, and it’s clear he’s outraged, but he gives voices to people on every side of the issue. . . . Miller’s book is a fascinating read.. . . and bring the work of Susan Orlean to mind."--Amanda Eyre Ward Kirkus Reviews "Todd Miller's invaluable and gripping book, Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security is the story of how this country’s borders are being transformed into up-armored, heavily militarized zones run by a border-industrial complex. It's an achievement and an eye opener."--Tom Engelhardt, TomDispatch "What Jeremy Scahill was to Blackwater, Todd Miller is to the U.S. Border Patrol!"--Tom Miller, author, On the Border: Portraits of America's Southwestern Frontier "Todd Miller has entered a secret world, and he has gone deep. . . . Powerful."--Luis Alberto Urrea, author of The Devil's Highway: A True Story "Journalist Miller tells an alarming story of U.S. Border Patrol and Homeland Security's ever-widening reach into the lives of American citizens and legal immigrants as well as the undocumented. In addition to readers interested in immigration issues, those concerned about the NSA’s privacy violations will likely be even more shocked by the actions of Homeland Security."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review Armed authorities watch from a military-grade surveillance tower as lines of people stream toward the security checkpoint, tickets in hand, anxious and excited to get through the gate. Few seem to notice or care that the US Border Patrol is monitoring the Super Bowl, as they have for years, one of the many ways that forces created to police the borders are now being used, in an increasingly militarized fashion, to survey and monitor the whole of American society. In fast-paced prose, Todd Miller sounds an alarm as he chronicles the changing landscape. Traveling the country—and beyond—to speak with the people most involved with and impacted by the Border Patrol, he combines these first-hand encounters with careful research to expose a vast and booming industry for high-end technology, weapons, surveillance, and prisons. While politicians and corporations reap substantial profits, the experiences of millions of men, women, and children point to staggering humanitarian consequences. Border Patrol Nation shows us in stark relief how the entire country has become a militarized border zone, with consequences that affect us all. Todd Miller has worked on and written about US border issues for over fifteen years.

These pages in your hands thus afford you an introduction; a familiarisation to your Army. The narratives are primarily aimed at making you smile and are an attempt to dilute the adverse impact of contemporary interminable assault of tension on our collective life style.

This study is an effort to survey the situation of Central American refugees in the United States in the late 1980s. It is based primarily on interviews conducted in nine states with American Friends Service Committee (AFSC) staff and others doing refugee work, as well as with refugees themselves. The report also draws on numerous reports, articles and newsletters. The aim of the paper, according to the authors, is to provide a current overview of the situation of refugees and refugee-related work that may help local groups relate their own concerns and work to what is happening elsewhere. The authors state that underlying the report are two broad convictions: first, that the presence of Central Americans in the United States raises fundamental questions of human rights; and second, that although the Central American crisis arose from processes internal to the region, United States policy has aggravated the conflicts that have generated the flow of refugees. The first section of the survey focuses on the changing nature of the wars in Central America and their impact on refugee flows. The second section focuses not only on the situation along the US Mexico border, but also on the obstacles the refugees face and the various struggles they have to defend their rights in dealing with the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS). In the third section, the authors point to some of the characteristics of Central American refugee communities in the United States, concentrating especially on the major problems faced by the refugees and those trying to help them, such as physical and mental health. Activities of several organizations under the umbrella of the Central America Refugee Network (CARNET) are described. The last section considers the United States government policies on immigration and organized efforts to change them. The authors look at international law and United States law on refugees, INS practice and legal challenges to it, the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, and temporary asylum.

PORTRAITS OF MAGNOLIAS In the Shadow of Elvis tells the story of a small Southern town in the 1950s as told through the lives of its teenagers. Among them was a group of girls known as The Twelve (the Magolias), one of whom, Margie King, looks back on this innocent time when most of the entertainment was self generated, and neighbors were friends who relied on each other and knew everyone else's business--although not everyone knew the mystery of the ruins of an antebellum mansion or what happened after a local lawyer became governor of the state. Offstage is Elvis Presley, who before he was famous was influencing the lives of the town's youth as his voice reached down into the Delta over the airwaves from Memphis and the teenagers sped up to Graceland to see what they could find out about the daily life of The King.

Race in the United States has long been associated with heredity and inequality while ethnicity has been linked to language and culture. In the Shadow of Race recovers the history of this entrenched distinction and the divisive politics it engenders. Victoria Hattam locates the origins of ethnicity in the New York Zionist movement of the early 1900s. In a major revision of widely held assumptions, she argues that Jewish activists identified as ethnics not as a means of assimilating and becoming white, but rather as a way of defending immigrant difference as distinct from race—rooted in culture rather than body and blood. Eventually, Hattam shows, the Immigration and Naturalization Service and the Census Bureau institutionalized this distinction by classifying Latinos as an ethnic group and not a race. But immigration and the resulting population shifts of the last half century have created a political opening for reimagining the relationship between immigration and race. How to do so is the question at hand. In the Shadow of Race concludes by examining the recent New York and Los Angeles elections and the 2006 immigrant rallies across the country to assess the possibilities of forging a more robust alliance between immigrants and African Americans. Such an alliance is needed, Hattam argues, to more effectively redress the persistent inequalities in American life.

The Shadow and Its Shadow is a classic collection of writings by the Surrealists on their mad love of moviegoing. The forty-odd theoretical, polemical, and poetical re-visions of the seventh art in this anthology document Surrealism's scandalous and nonreductive take on film. Writing between 1918 and 1977, the essayists include such names as André Breton, Louis Aragon, Robert Desnos, Salvador Dalí, Luis Buñuel, and man Ray, as well as many of the less famous though equally fascinating figures of the movement. Paul Hammond's introduction limns the history of Surrealist cinemania, highlighting how these revolutionary poets, artists, and philosophers sifted the silt of commercial-often Hollywood-cinema for the odd fleck of gold, the windfall movie that, somehow slipping past the censor, questioned the dominant order. Such prospecting pivoted around the notion of lyrical behavior-as depicted on the screen and as lived in the movie house. The representation of such behavior led the Surrealists to valorize the manifest content of such denigrated genres as silent and sound comedy, romantic melodrama, film noir, horror movies. As to lived experience, moviegoing Surrealists looked to the spectacle's latent meaning, reading films as the unwitting providers of redemptive sequences that could be mentally clipped out of their narrative context and inserted into daily life-there, to provoke new adventures. "Hammond's book is a reminder of the wealth and range of surrealist writings on the cinema. . . . [T]he work represented here is still challenging and genuinely eccentric, locating itself in an 'ethic' of love, reverie and revolt." --Sight & Sound "Hammond, who is the author of the invaluable anthology The Shadow and its Shadow: Surrealist Writing on the Cinema (1978), writes about cinema independently of the changing academic and cultural fashions of film theory and abhors the dogmas of contemporary border-patrol thought. His magnetically appealing free-wheeling form of erudite film-critical writing is recognisable for its iconoclastic humour, non-authoritarian verve and playful witty discursivity." --John Conomos,Senses of Cinema Paul Hammond is a writer, editor, and translator living in Barcelona. He is the author ofConstellations of Miró, Breton which was published by City Lights.

Eugene has had a lifelong love of philosophy, which has guided his life since early childhood. He grew up in the desert southwest of Arizona and can remember as a boy when the state had less than a million people in it. The vast, empty deserts, the mountains, and the indigenous people were always easily accessible, often within or just beyond the city limits. As a youth, he spent long hours alone in the desert and mountains learning and appreciating the solitude of sparsely populated places. After graduating from the University of Arizona in 1964 with a BS in zoology, he was called to active duty with the United States Navy and served until his retirement in 1986. During that service, he qualified as a surface officer and a naval flight officer assigned to various fighter squadrons and embarked on several different aircraft carriers. He had two combat tours in Southeast Asia in the Tonkin Gulf off the coast of North Vietnam. He retired from the navy in 1986. After retirement from the navy, he completed a second career with the Arizona Department of Public Safety where he served as a police dispatcher and licensing agent for private investigators and agencies and security guards and agencies. He worked with uniformed highway patrol officers and with criminal investigators. He currently lives in Tucson, Arizona, with his wife, a granddaughter, and great-grandson.
