Co-editor Dr. Maria Gonzalez notes in her introduction that Borderlines: Volume Two, renders, vividly and from a range of positions, the experiecnes of stateless workers and communities upon whose labor virtually every country depends, but who are without official status or civil protections in the countries where they live and work. These pieces are explosive in nature, emotional by definition, and powerful in their words and images as they explore the conditions that relegate many boundary crossers to perpetual vulnerability and exploitation in nations unwilling to acknowledge those who work, live and die within their borders.
