This fourth edition, completely updated in 2014, is brimming with sound and thoughtful advice on retirement in Mexico. Everything from how to pick your location to the new residency procedure that became effective in November, 2013, is covered. If you've ever considered retirement in Mexico, please read this book first. It has the most up-to-date information that would otherwise take you months of frustration to acquire. But why Mexico? The reasons are many. Often, Americans and Canadians choose Mexico because of its proximity. Unlike most other exotic retirement locations that require lengthy plane trips, it's easy to drive back and forth to Mexico. A more important reason is that Mexico is a bargain compared to the rest of North America and Europe. Expatriates live very well, often more luxuriously than they did “back home,” on very little money. Housing is half what it costs in the States; excellent medical and dental care is startlingly inexpensive; and the government will even provide health insurance for less than $500 a year! Then, too, Mexico is rich in archaeological sites, steeped in history, and has a more exciting “foreign” culture than any place in Western Europe. There is also no denying that its delicious cuisine, stunning architecture, colonial cities, and temperate climate also play a part in people's decision. Dru isn't implying that Mexico is Shangri-La, but she thinks it is closer to paradise than any place you can find in the United States, Canada or Europe. Here in this land of majestic mountains and rolling countryside, a gentle people are willing to welcome retirees into their hearts. Expats have more time to explore other interests and develop talents because they have more freedom, better health, less stress, and fewer mundane chores. The low cost of living allows them to splurge on luxuries that would be prohibitive anywhere else and to take advantage of world-class resorts that are only a few hours´ drive away. No, the country isn't perfect, but you cannot get any closer to paradise than Mexico.

I must get several emails per month from young women asking me how they can teach English as a second language (ESL) in M xico. They usually want to know about teaching in Guanajuato specifically. What seems most alarming to me is that there is such an urban myth that you can breeze into M xico, any part of M xico, waltz into a local language school, and grab yourself a teaching job making a fortune. There are websites after website, usually trying to sell you an ESL workbook, an ESL recruitment service, or a school that will teach you how to be an ESL instructor, which all tell what amounts to lies. They will all but come out and say that you will live a life of unparalleled luxury in a romantic and exotic location and get rich teaching English to Mexicans. These websites are very easy to find and will lead you on a "wild goose chase."

Wherever in the world the soul of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. may be, whether in the grave, in the skies, or in the region of the celestial sphere with his maker, it must be rejoicing together with the angels, archangels, principalities and powers that Black America is rising with the assistance of White America. Blacks are moving in the right direction but at a snails pace. The race has a long way to go before it can be on parity with its white counterparts. However, it seems that some aspects are improving. White Americans are now reaching out to assist their fellow black Americans. And with the recent inauguration of a biracial president, there is hope that our nation is coming of age in terms of racial and social perspective. There are persistent issues such as lack of training, high unemployment and non-acceptance of black immigrants by some elements in Black America that must be addressed.

In the spring of 2006, millions of immigrants and supporters organized in cities and small towns across the United States to defend their rights following the passage of HR4437, a bill designed to punish unauthorized immigrants. In an unprecedented show of force, tens of thousands of workers marched out of meatpacking plants, factories, restaurants, landscape businesses and stores, while students—many of them the US-born children of immigrants—staged school walkouts. Thousands also observed a one-day national consumer boycott to demonstrate the economic power of immigrant communities. The spring 2006 mobilizations—and the ensuing backlash from anti-immigrant sectors—pushed the topic of immigration to the front and center of U.S. politics. Polls show the public increasingly divided, with the debate framed as a choice between “deport them all” and “give everyone amnesty.” But dialogue is possible when we dig deeper. Why are people leaving their homes? Why are they coming here? What is the impact of our current enforcement policies? What kinds of alternatives exist? Backed with a wide range of cited sources, The Politics of Immigration tackles questions and concerns about immigration with compelling arguments and hard facts, laid out in straightforward language and an accessible question-and-answer format. For immigrants and supporters, the book is an effective tool to confront common myths and misinformation. For teachers, it provides a useful framework on the current debate, and ample opportunities for students to reach out and explore the intersecting issues. Those who believe immigrants steal jobs from citizens, drive down wages, strain public services, and threaten our culture will find such assumptions challenged here, while people who are undecided about immigration will find the solid data and clear reasoning they need to develop an informed opinion.

Mexico In World History

Drawing on materials ranging from archaeological findings to recent studies of migration issues and drug violence, William H. Beezley provides a dramatic narrative of human events as he recounts the story of Mexico in the context of world history. Beginning with the Mayan and Aztec civilizations and their brutal defeat at the hands of the Conquistadors, Beezley highlights the penetrating effect of Spain's three-hundred-year colonial rule, during which Mexico became a multicultural society marked by Roman Catholicism and the Spanish language. Independence, he shows, was likewise marked by foreign invasions and huge territorial losses, this time at the hands of the United States, who annexed a vast land mass--including the states of Texas, New Mexico, and California--and remained a powerful presence along the border. The 1910 revolution propelled land, educational, and public health reforms, but later governments turned to authoritarian rule, personal profits, and marginalization of rural, indigenous, and poor Mexicans. Throughout this eventful chronicle, Beezley highlights the people and international forces that shaped Mexico's rich and tumultuous history.

In Growing up in Mexico, Peggy Brown Balderrama tells the story of her family's life in Mexico. She describes trips through various cities and towns in the country with interesting details, and as a bonus, she gives humorous descriptions of several trips through Europe and South America that she took with her family. The author arrived in Mexico with her parents from England when she was seven years old, and relates, with wit, the impressions she formed of Mexico and its people when she was that age. Growing up in a very peaceful Mexico City in the forties, contrasts with the Mexico City of today. Her life in the American High School, her various boyfriends, and her eventual marriage to a Mexican physician, tell a different tale from a girl who might have grown up in England or the United States or even in the Mexico City of today.

All historians would agree that America is a nation of nations. But what does that mean in terms of the issues that have moved and shaped us as a people? Contemporary concerns such as bilingualism, incorporation/assimilation, dual identity, ethnic politics, quotas and affirmative action, residential segregation, and the volume of immigration resonate with a past that has confronted variations of these modern issues. The Columbia Documentary History of Race and Ethnicity in America, written and compiled by a highly respected team of American historians under the editorship of Ronald Bayor, illuminates the myriad ways in which immigration, racial, and ethnic histories have shaped the contours of contemporary American society. This invaluable resource documents all eras of the American past, including black–white interactions and the broad spectrum of American attitudes and reactions concerning Native Americans, Irish Catholics, Mexican Americans, Jewish Americans, and other groups. Each of the eight chronological chapters contains a survey essay, an annotated bibliography, and 20 to 30 related public and private primary source documents, including manifestos, speeches, court cases, letters, memoirs, and much more. From the 1655 petition of Jewish merchants regarding the admission of Jews to the New Netherlands colony to an interview with a Chinese American worker regarding a 1938 strike in San Francisco, documents are drawn from a variety of sources and allow students and others direct access to our past. Selections include Powhatan to John Smith, 1609 Thomas Jefferson—"Notes on the State of Virginia" Petition of the Trustees of Congregation Shearith Israel, 1811 Bessie Conway or, The Irish Girl in America German Society in Chicago, Annual Report, 1857–1858.

Death and Life in Colonial Nahua Mexico presents seven dramas from the first truly American theater. Composed in Nahuatl during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, most of these plays survive only in later copies. Five are morality plays. Presenting Christian views of moral reform, death, judgment, and punishment for sin, they reveal how these themes were adapted into Nahua culture. The other two plays dramatize biblical narratives: the stories of Abraham and Isaac and of the three wise men. In this volume, Barry D. Sell and Louise M. Burkhart offer faithful transcriptions of the Nahuatl as well as new English translations of these remarkable dramas. Accompanying the plays are four interpretive essays and a foreword that broaden our understanding of these rare works. This volume is the first in a four-volume set entitled Nahuatl Theater, edited by Barry D. Sell and Louise M. Burkhart

Border Town Blood

Border Town Blood is a contemporary horror novel in three acts. "But I'm not really into horror," you may say. Well, Border Town Blood is like an excellent submarine sandwich (or a po' boy for my friends in the Deep South); there is something in it for everyone: horror, fantasy, romance, inspiration and even a little comic relief tossed in for good measure. Border Town Blood is set in a geographically accurate Fort Smith. I have always believed that fear thrives on the familiar. Television programs like The Twilight Zone were much more frightening and disturbing for their real world setting. Sure having a homicidal alien chasing someone around a spaceship is scary; but having a horde of zombies rise from the cemetery you drive past every day at dusk is terrifying! In Border Town Blood, I have taken great pains to describe local geography and local businesses exactly where they are. To paraphrase the great American storyteller Louis L'Amour, if I tell you there's a water hole somewhere, if you follow my directions, you will end up with a cool drink. Of course, it has been necessary to fictionalize most of the names of the businesses and people, but there is still a barbecue place where Nealson's stands, a record storage business where Centralized Record Storage stands and, as of January 2009, the Mallalieu Church still stands right where Ellis left it. I am confident that Mayor Ray Baker would love to have the fans of Border Town Blood visit Fort Smith and spend a day or two driving around on a Border Town Blood tour. Border Town Blood is based on actual historic events and authentic Native American mythology. Many of today's most successful television programs brag that their stories are "ripped from the headlines." Border Town Blood takes that premise and stands it on its head. The stories in Border Town Blood are ripped from the history books. The Trail of Tears is one of the most shameful events in our country's history. The carnival atmosphere of the public hangings in 19th Century Fort Smith were probably more raucous than I portray them. The multiple waves of refugees and displaced persons referenced by Alice Harvey were actual events. In the forties, Camp Chaffee was a German prisoner of war camp. Fort Chaffee was the Middle American staging ground for fifty-one thousand Hmong, Indochinese, and Vietnamese men, women and children in the seventies; and in the eighties over twenty-five thousand Cuban refugees passed through Fort Smith. Over ten thousand refugees from Hurricane Katrina were housed in Fort Chaffee in 2005. What is so special about Fort Smith that, time and again, the disenfranchised and the footloose end up here? Border Town Blood poses an answer to that and many other questions. Native American mythology is a rich and largely untapped seedbed of tales and legends. Border Town Blood borrows a few of these myths and weaves them into a tapestry that is rooted in history and flies high in the firmament of modern imagination. Tsul Kalu and Jumlin are genuine figures in Native American pantheons. Shapeshifters, dreamwalkers and warriors mighty enough to slay gods are part and parcel of Native American oral tradition. Border Town Blood tells its story through the eyes of those experiencing the action. Unlike the bird's eye view of many third-person novels or the solo inside-out view of a first-person narrative, Border Town Blood puts you the reader inside the heads and hearts of the stories' characters. You get to know the characters, their feelings and their motivations through their own eyes: unvarn
