The Border

Policy and Politics in Europe and the United States

Martin A. Schain

  • Provides the only comparative analysis of the emergence and development of the border as a political issue in both America and Europe
  • Presents a comprehensive study of where the border is and how it is used
  • Addresses the major issues associated with the border: asylum, immigration, detention and the construction of walls
  • Poses the counterintuitive argument that, in a more globalized world, borders have actually become stronger
