    Culture across borders : Mexican immigration & popular culture

    Culture Across Borders is the first book-length study to analyze a wide range of cultural manifestations of the Mexican immigration experience, including art literature, cinema, corridos (folk songs), and humor. It shows how Mexican immigrants have been depicted in popular culture - both in Mexico and the United States - and how Mexican and Chicano/Chicana artists, writers, intellectuals, and others have used artistic means to protest the unjust treatment of immigrants by U.S. authorities.

    Thirteen-year-old Ben Ripley has been caught in the snares of SPYDER more than once and knows well enough to be suspicious of anything that seems too good to be true--despite needing special tutoring in advanced survival techniques. So when Murray Hill finally breaks his silence with an offer to hand over the SPYDER elite, Ben knows that there must be something going on. But his hesitation doesn't stop the assignment. The Mission: Follow Murray Hill to an undisclosed location with no one else but Erica Hale to identify SPYDER leadership. Once found, contact the CIA to sweep in and finish the job. DO NOT CONTACT SPYDER DIRECTLY. However, as Ben suspected, nothing goes as planned, and what should be an easy mission quickly turns deadly. Now, Ben and Erica will have to face rogue agents, trained killers, and even very hungry crocodiles in a race against the clock to find out what SPYDER is up to this time--and thwart their evil plans.
