Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Connecting critical issues of state sovereignty with empirical concerns, Borderscapes interrogates the limits of political space. The essays in this volume analyze everyday procedures, such as the classifying of migrants and refugees, security in European and American detention centers, and the DNA sampling of migrants in Thailand, showing the border as a moral construct rich with panic, danger, and patriotism.

 

Conceptualizing such places as immigration detention camps and refugee camps as areas of political contestation, this work forcefully argues that borders and migration are, ultimately, inextricable from questions of justice and its limits.

Book News Annotation:

These 12 papers, inspired by a December 2004 conference on security and migration in Thailand, address how borders figure in knowledge and power, surveillance, the representation of migrants and the resulting panic, mapping hidden geographies in borders, and rethinking borders. Topics include the relation between detention of foreigners and social practices of control, Malaysia's asylum practices for refugees and stateless persons, judicial security response in the UK to foreigners, hill tribes and illegal migrants in Thailand, violence (and the resulting subversion and creativity) in the Thai-Malaysian borderland, the danger and poetry of boundaries, conceptual and life worlds, insecurity in the Pacific borderlands, temporary shelter areas, asylum and exclusion in Australia, and border-crossing humans as insurrectionist politicians.
