Summary

In an updated and expanded edition of his essential 2000 book about shifts in how borders are perceived and patrolled, Peter Andreas brings the story into the present day. The second edition of Border Games places the continued sharp escalation of border policing in the context of a transformed post-September 11 security environment. As Andreas demonstrates, in some ways it is still the same old border game-but more difficult to manage, with more players, played out on a bigger stage, and with higher stakes and collateral damage. Andreas continues to help readers understand the changing practice and politics of policing national boundaries in the twenty-first century. Book jacket.
