Through contextual historical analysis that relies on sources written in Spanish as well as English, the author identifies the changing meaning of water as a central variable. The chapter recounts the dispersion and marginalization of indigenous peoples; the uneven agricultural development of valleys on either side of the national dividing line between Mexico and the United States that otherwise appear potentially equally productive; and the lopsided pattern of industrialization that currently undergirds the population explosion in this arid area.
