Summary Fires on the Border takes up questions of labor and community organizing-its "affect-culture"--Mexico's northern border from the early 1970s to the present day. Through these campaigns, Rosemary Hennessy illuminates the attachments and identifications that motivate people to act on behalf of one another and that bind them to a common cause
