Lynching of Mexicans in the Texas Borderlands, a book by Nicholas Villanueva, Hist’06, earned the National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies 2018 Non-Fiction Prize. It also earned a 2017 Southwestern Studies Book Prize from the University of Texas and the Border Regional Library Association. Villanueva is an assistant professor of ethnic studies at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

The book examines the increase in Mexican lynchings during the first 10 years of the Mexican Revolution, 1910–20, in the Texas borderlands and differentiates between the lynching of African Americans and the borderland lynching of ethnic Mexicans.
