A Border of Life and Death follows 62-year-old Annie Mulholland's campaign for fairer cancer care in Wales during the last months of her life. Annie has terminal ovarian cancer and left her home in Cardiff to cross the border to England to get the drug she needed. She received treatment at the Royal Marsden in London which has prolonged her life. It's where she also befriended former CEO of Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board, Mary Burrows, who had also moved to England to access cancer treatment. Although Annie is living longer than anyone expected, she doesn't have long left and wants equal access to drugs and clinical trials for all cancer patients in Wales.

From poets to sociologists, many people who write about life on the U.S.-Mexico border use terms such as 'border crossing' and 'hybridity' which suggest that a unified culture - neither Mexican nor American, but an amalgamation of both - has arisen in the borderlands.

Fifteen years on from a debut that earned Brit and Mercury nominations, Tom McRae is an enduring outsider. The son of Christian missionaries, this songwriter from Essex decamped to the US a decade ago and is now based in France (he enjoys a loyal European following). McRae’s seventh album has a fire and brimstone flavour, and in his mid-forties he’s acquired the malevolent eloquence of Tom Waits and Nick Cave. On The High Life, he sings in a conspiratorial whisper over a rackety rhythm, while the majestic Americana of Christmas Eve, 1943 has him hoping for “one last shot of whisky, one last shot of lead” before descending to hell.

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life

Fifty Years of Change on the U.S.-Mexico Border: Growth, Development, and Quality of Life by Joan B. Anderson, James Gerber
Publisher: University of Texas Press | Number Of Pages: 304 | Publication Date: 2007-12-15 | ISBN-10: 0292717199 | PDF | 5 Mb

The U.S. and Mexican border regions have experienced rapid demographic and economic growth over the last fifty years. In this analysis, Joan Anderson and James Gerber offer a new perspective on the changes and tensions pulling at the border from both sides through a discussion of cross-border economic issues and thorough analytical research that examines not only the dramatic demographic and economic growth of the region, but also shifts in living standards, the changing political climate, and environmental pressures, as well as how these affect the lives of people in the border region.
Creating what they term a Border Human Development Index, the authors rank the quality of life for every U.S. county and Mexican municipio that touches the 2,000-mile border. Using data from six U.S. and Mexican censuses, the book adeptly illustrates disparities in various aspects of economic development between the two countries over the last six decades.
