His narrative, buttressed throughout by tables and statistics, paints a vivid mural of both the abstract forces and the farsighted and ambitious individuals that combined to bring prosperity to this unique city of the border. Readers will find a wealth of insights into regional economics, history, and borderlands themes."--Jacket."@en ;
