Challenging many common perceptions, this is the first book fully dedicated to understanding a major new phenomenon - the large numbers of skilled urban workers who are now coming across the border from Mexico's cities. Based on a ten-year, on-the-ground study of one working-class neighbourhood in Monterrey, Mexico's industrial powerhouse and third-largest city, "Metropolitan Migrants" explores the ways in which Mexico's economic restructuring and the industrial modernization of the past three decades have pushed a new flow of migrants toward cities such as Houston, Texas, the global capital of the oil industry. Weaving together rich details of everyday life with a lucid analysis of Mexico's political economy, Ruben Hernandez-Leon deftly traces the effects of restructuring on the lives of the working class, from the national level to the kitchen table.
