From Library Journal:

Awarded a prestigious MacArthur Foundation Fellowship in 1991, G"mez-Pe$a is known for shocking audiences with such performances as "Couple in a Cage" (1994), a critique of the historical practice of displaying and exoticising indigenous peoples. His newest book is a collection of performance texts, radio scripts, poetry, critical writing, interviews, and photographs that chronicles his performance and activist escapades since 1994, when his books, The New World Border and Warrior for Gringostroika, left off. Filled with biting humor and political satire, the text again weaves between such diverse topics as border culture, technology, racism, language, and globalization. Dangerous Border Crossers complements a second title from Routledge, Corpus Delecti (1999), an anthology of Latino performance art from the Caribbean and the Americas, edited by Coco Fusco. Both books add to the much-needed recent surge of publications on performance art. Recommended for academic and other libraries with specialized collections in contemporary art, theater, or Latin culture.DKrista Ivy, Bryn Mawr Coll. Lib., PA (c) Copyright 2010.
