    University of Minnesota Press 2002; US$ 60.00

    Since the late nineteenth century, immigrant women?s sexuality has been viewed as a threat to national security, to be contained through strict border-monitoring practices. By scrutinizing this policy, its origins, and its application, Eithne Luibhéid shows how the U.S. border became a site not just for controlling female sexuality but also for contesting,... more...
