Item description for Aqui Es Tijuana! by Fiamma Montezemolo...

Synopsis "Here is Tijuana!" is a compendium to Tijuana, on the border of Mexico and the USA, and site of fluctuating population, mixed identities, interests, and negotiations. A city with a reputation for intoxication, gambling and prostitution, there are also more benign forms of recreation available, and increasing opportunities for economic development. This book looks to the history of the city, and to its future; to its dark side, and to the possibilities it offers, through a range of texts and a fascinating photographic records. As the work of three editors, an anthropologist, a writer and an architect, the book is a combination of three distinct research projects. It is divided into three sections: "Avatars", addressing the socio-cultural issues surrounding the city; "Desires", which explores questions of morality, cultural practices, and entertainments; and "Permutations", which looks at the built environment. The material presented here is taken from a diverse range of sources, including Mexican and United States government reports; newspaper editorials; travel guides; architectural criticism; market research statistics; homeland security bulletins; tourism and convention literature; the Rotary Club of Tijuana; Yahoo News; and contemporary literature. Contributions include text by Jesse Lerner, Michael Sorkin, Neil Denari, Mike Davis, Jorge Bustamante, Lewis Baltz, Kathy Acker, and Raymond Chandler, amongst others.

Reviews - What do customers think about Aqui Es Tijuana!?

Yesterday, today and tommorrow  Aug 20, 2007
This is an outstanding book that contributes to a cultural understanding of Tijuana. Many issues are explored with many facts presented to illustrate points regarding the diversity and cultural hub that is Tijuana. The book is full of black and white photographs and many beautiful color photographs. These photographs are usually highlighted by corresponding facts about the particular issue being examined. This was a project undertaken by three individuals from different backgrounds to create a synthesis of diverse views to a common phenomena; the vast and richly emergent artistic and cultural city that is Tijuana. Living close to this border city and visiting it often I found the book to be completely engrossing in both it's narrative and visual style. If you want to know more about Tijuana than pick up this book. This is not a tourist guide but rather a cultural reflection on one of the busiest and most fascinating cities in the world. Recommended for a better understanding of Tijuana, Mexico.
