'Reece Jones's Border Walls links the paranoid narratives of terror and security emanating from the great democracies: the United States, India, and Israel. Rather than see the border walls that strangle these countries into delusions of security, these walls are frameworks to thwart the widest aspirations for human freedom. Like graffiti on the border walls, Jones's book tries to bring sunlight into the darkness of these states.' Vijay Prashad, author of The Darker Nations: A People's History of the Third World 'At a time when many commentators are preoccupied by forces undermining the power and authority of the territorial state, Border Walls serves as an important reminder that the modernist political-territorial order still matters. Reece Jones convincingly shows that the border security arrangements of the past decade are likely to be among the most enduring consequences of the global "war on terror" - not just for how people move around and use space, but for how they think about the political geographic organization of the planet.' Alexander B. Murphy, Department of Geography, University of Oregon
