Editorial Reviews

Review

'Contrary to what we have been told by the globalization theorists that the world has become deterritorialised and borderless, the past decade has seen an upsurge in the construction of new fences and walls as part of the inter-state borders within the international system. This is largely due to the sense of fear of the "outsider" in a post 9/11 world. Part of this is real, much of it is a social construction which enables governments to justify the establishment of new border fences as a means of keeping out the "alien" and controlling their own territory. The collection of essays in this book highlights diverse aspects of the ways in which walls and fences function in a globalized world, covering regions as far apart as America and Spain, and from the West Bank to Africa. The book is to be recommended for all students of the renaissant discipline of border studies.'David Newman, Ben Gurion University, Israel, and Editor, Geopolitics
