Compa, Lance A.
[Excerpt] Morristown brings to life the human element missing from the political and legal analysis of the issues presented in this symposium issue. The hour-long documentary takes us back and forth from an Eastern Tennessee region that has seen a rapid influx of Mexican immigrants to the villages and factory zones in Mexico where these immigrants started their journeys. The alternation has a powerful, accelerating effect for the contrasts it portrays but also for the similarities of globalization's effects on working people in both countries.
