Borders of Violence & Justice: Mexicans, Mexican Americans, and Law Enforcement in the Southwest, 1835-1935 by Brian D. Behnken

Borders of Violence and Justice is a consequential contribution to the scholarship on racist violence, police brutality, and Mexican American history.”—Brent M. S. Campney, University of Texas Rio Grande Valley
