Where it divides Arizona and Sonora, the international boundary
between Mexico and the United States is both a political reality,
literally expressed by a fence, and, to a considerable degree, a
cultural illusion. Mexican, Anglo, and Native American cultures
straddle the fence; people of various ethnic backgrounds move back
and forth across the artificial divide, despite increasing
obstacles to free movement. On either side is found a complex
cultural mix of ethnic, religious, and occupational groups. In A
Shared Space James Griffith examines many of the distinctive folk
expressions of this varied cultural region.
