A timely and data-driven monograph enriched by the authentic voice of its Mexican American subjects, Violence and Hope reveals sociopolitical strife and power between the borders of two nations. It is a potent story of inequality of opportunity, immigration, drug and human trafficking, gangs, prostitution, poverty, crime, and family violence in Esperanza, a U.S. town 45 miles from Mexico. Glittenberg tells how members of a community in need of transformation, riddled with drive-by shootings and competing gangs, become enraged by a violent event and mobilize to confront the wide-reaching issues they face. Esperanzans, in their growing awareness that violence comes not only from the outside but also the inside, seek financial resources and courage to escape from their cultural pattern of silence, complicity, and complacency.

The contributors argue that the Westphalian influence on international relations has blinded the analysis that would awaken our awareness of the increasing erosion of state boundaries. It has in effect retarded our recognition of the common condition we share.

What happens to migrants after they are deported from the United States and dropped off at the Mexican border, often hundreds if not thousands of miles from their hometowns? In this eye-opening work, Jeremy Slack foregrounds the voices and experiences of Mexican deportees, who frequently become targets of extreme forms of violence, including migrant massacres, upon their return to Mexico. Navigating the complex world of the border, Slack investigates how the high-profile drug war has led to more than two hundred thousand deaths in Mexico, and how many deportees, stranded and vulnerable in unfamiliar cities, have become fodder for drug cartel struggles. Like no other book before it, Deported to Death reshapes debates on the long-term impact of border enforcement and illustrates the complex decisions migrants must make about whether to attempt the return to an often dangerous life in Mexico or face increasingly harsh punishment in the United States.

This year's report focuses on the lives of migrant women, who constitute almost half of all international migrants worldwide, some 95 million. Every year these women working overseas send hundreds of millions of dollars in remittances back to their homes and communities. These funds go to feed and educate children, provide health care, build homes, foster small businesses and generally improve living standards for loved ones left behind. For host countries, the labour of migrant women is so embedded in the fabric of society that it goes virtually unnoticed. But migration, whilst offering opportunities for economic advancement and relief from oppression and discrimination, has its darker side: enslavement of trafficking victims and the exploitation of domestic workers.
