Présentation de l'éditeur
Two decades after the fall of the Berlin Wall, why are leading democracies like the United States, India and Israel building massive walls and fences on their borders? Despite predictions of a borderless world through globalization, these three countries alone have built an astonishing combined total of 5,700 kilometers of security barriers. In this groundbreaking work, Reece Jones analyzes how these controversial border security projects were justified in their respective countries, what consequences these physical barriers have on the lives of those living in these newly securitized spaces, and what long-term effects the hardening of political borders will have in these societies and globally.Border Walls is a bold, important intervention that demonstrates that the exclusion and violence necessary to secure the borders of the modern state often undermine the very ideals of freedom and democracy they are meant to protect.

This is a very important book. A single insightful nugget on page 154 that clearly and unequivocally explains the Israeli position on West Bank occupation policy makes the entire book worth the purchase price. In one short paragraph the author has recognized and enunciated the circular reasoning that the Israel government uses to justify its never-ending oppression of the Palestinian people. Just as quickly it also implies, and correctly so, why it will not have a good ending for the Palestinians.

This book provides an insightful and lively discussion of how our professed ideals often collide with the reality of our deeds. If more politicians and voters would read books like this, our world would indeed be a more safe and humane place. My congratulations to Prof. Jones for writing a book that truly makes one think and reflect.

If one is interested in a factual, authoritative study into behind the walls, behind the scenes of countries and governments currently using walls to achieve their aims, politically, socially/ethnically, economically ... basically in every conceivable/inconceivable way and tactic, then Reece Jones has provided this valuable source/resource for the reader.
A Good Book, Heavy on Theory

This book was far more theoretical than I'd hoped. If you're looking for a fact-full account of the proliferation of border barriers around the world in recent years, as I was, this is not it. On the other hand, if you're looking for a critical account of this phenomenon's causes, justifications and implications in the US, India, and Israel, then this is just the right book for you. Definitely interesting.

An insightful, important book on globalization and newly militarized borders.
le 12 août 2012 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Celebrants of globalization have claimed that integrated commerce will lead to a more peaceful world, in which the power of states wanes while innovation, competition, and cultural exchange flourish. Reece Jones's trenchant and sobering new book demonstrates, to the contrary, that globalization can proceed hand-in-hand with state fortification of the most brutal sort. By examining the recent construction of colossal border fences in the United States, Israel, and India, Jones shows how the rhetoric of anti-terrorism has been used not just to fortify previously porous frontiers but to exacerbate economic inequality, partition communities, and securitize democratic governments. For anyone interested in globalization, state formation, political geography, and human rights, this is a vital book: clearly and concisely written, vigorously argued, powerful and important.
