Moving beyond the tequila-soaked cliches of Mexican tourism, this multifaceted book explores the influence and experiences of Americans in Mexico since World War II. The authors trace Mexico's growing role as an important refuge for Americans seeking not only sun and fun but an alternative cultural and social model. Delving into the rich and varied worlds of political exiles, students, art dealers, retiree/artist colonies, and tourist zones, this work illustrates why large numbers of Americans have been irresistibly drawn to Mexico. Specialists in literature, anthropology, history, and geography bring their unique perspectives to the stories of these migrants, offering a fascinating interpretation to all those interested in modern Mexican history, border studies, tourism, and retirement in Mexico.
