In the current historical moment borders have taken on heightened material and symbolic significance, shaping identities and the social and political landscape. &quote;Borders&quote;-defined broadly to include territorial dividing lines as well as sociocultural boundaries-have become increasingly salient sites of struggle over social belonging and cultural and material resources. How do contemporary activists navigate and challenge these borders? What meanings do they ascribe to different social, cultural and political boundaries, and how do these meanings shape the strategies in which they engage? Moreover, how do these social movements confront internal borders based on the differences that emerge within social change initiatives? Border Politics, edited by Nancy A. Naples and Jennifer Bickham Mendez, explores these important questions through eleven carefully selected case studies situated in geographic contexts around the globe. By conceptualizing struggles over identity, social belonging and exclusion as extensions of border politics, the authors capture the complex ways in which geographic, cultural, and symbolic dividing lines are blurred and transcended, but also fortified and redrawn. This volume notably places right-wing and social justice initiatives in the same analytical frame to identify patterns that span the political spectrum. Border Politics offers a lens through which to understand borders as sites of diverse struggles, as well as the strategies and practices used by diverse social movements in today's globally interconnected world.

"These chapters explore the multiple ways in which borderings are made, experienced, demolished, invented. From sacred spaces inside a country to the formal borders of the inter-state system, the authors track and theorize the constellations of meanings that arise at diverse types of borders. This is a groundbreaking collection."-Saskia Sassen,author of Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy "The collection certainly confirmed one in the belief that looking into inscriptions on boundaries is a fruitful way to find insight into the ever-shifting identities that poststructuralism has encouraged us to spot."- "This volume will be welcomed by experts committed to the study of borders-geographical or figurative-and political contestations."-Mobilization "The edited collection offers an important contribution to the sociology of bordering. Rather than focusing on struggles over the militarization of geographical borderlands as outlined by scholars like Reece Jones, the contribution of the book lies in its original approach to the analysis of social movements for which borders and boundaries are sites of struggle. More precisely, the chapters depict how these social movements maintain, contest, produce, and dissolve borders and boundaries."-Border Criminologies "Border Politics isa groundbreaking book on how borders and boundaries-both territorial andsymbolic-shape the mobilization of social movements at the same time that theyare instrumental in the very often conflicting identity construction processesof social movements' participants. Nancy A. Naples and Jennifer Bickham Mendezhave arranged a significant, comprehensive, and timely collection of essays."-Pablo Vila,author of Border Identifications and Ethnography at the Border "This edited volume highlights many contemporary geopolitical issues in the social sciences. The contributors take a global perspective, examining problems from Asia, North America, Australia, Europe, and Africa."-Choice

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
