Border Bandits is an account of the many, many stories of back-and-forth skirmishes between the Mexicans and Texans during the late 1800s and early 1900s. There practically wasn´t a border, which caused a lot of problems and thievery between the two countries. These 17 tales in this book re-create border raids that originated from both sides of the fluid and much contested line and tells the stories of colorful characters - Mexican and American - that have since secured their place in history. 1.

Amanda Scott concludes her thrilling Border trilogy with the incandescent story of a woman and a man who are mortal foes…until they´re undone by love. The rebellious daughter of a Scottish march warden, Lady Laurie Halliot is as fearless as she is beautiful.

She prays that her sister will return before the next wardens´ meeting, or Laurie herself will have to bear the punishment. Born into a clan that spans both sides of the bitter border strife, Sir Hugh Graham has pledged his allegiance to the English queen Elizabeth.

Ich will Ihnen nichts vormachen. Ich habe bereits gegen viele Wesen der Finsternis gekämpft. Ich habe Geister vertrieben und gebannt. Einmal habe ich gar einen Ghoul getötet.

Despite - and perhaps because of - increasing global mobility, there are more types of borders today than ever before in history. Borders of all kinds define every aspect of social life in the 21st century. From the biometric data that divides the smallest aspects of our bodies to the aerial drones that patrol the immense expanse of our domestic and international airspace, we are defined by borders. They can no longer simply be understood as the geographical divisions between nation-states. Today, their form and function has become too complex, too hybrid. What we need now is a theory of the border that can make sense of this hybridity across multiple domains of social life. Rather than viewing borders as the result or outcome of pre-established social entities like states, Thomas Nail reinterprets social history from the perspective of the continual and constitutive movement of the borders that organize and divide society in the first place. Societies and states are the products of bordering, Nail argues, not the other way around. Applying his original movement-oriented theoretical framework ´´kinopolitics´´ to several major historical border regimes (fences, walls, cells, and checkpoints), Theory of the Border pioneers a new methodology of ´´critical limology´´, that provides fresh tools for the analysis of contemporary border politics.The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.´´An ambitious, rich and suggestive work that has much to offer political theories of migration.´´ (LSE Review of Books)´´This book is genuinely new and profound...a model of the best that philosophy can do.´´ (Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews) 1.
