The United States is outsourcing its border patrol abroad - and essentially expanding its borders in the process.The 21st century has been an era of hardening borders-increased borderland patrols, surveillance, and militarization are widening the chasm between those who can vacation (or do business) where they please, and others whose movements are restricted by armed guards. But as journalist Todd Miller finds in Empire of Borders, the US border is also becoming increasingly fluid, expanding thousands of miles outside of US territory often to protect Washington´s interests.In places like Argentina, Kosovo, Honduras, Jordan, and Afghanistan, US border patrol works alongside local agents to block migrants, terrorists, drug runners, and smugglers from ever approaching the US. Empire of Borders traces the rise of this border regime, along with practices of ´´extreme vetting´´ and the vast global industry for border and homeland security. But in visiting the Jordan/Syria border, as well as Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Kenya, Palestine, Mexico, and the Philippines, Miller finds instead a global war against the poor. 1. Language: English.

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.
