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.

A hundred years ago, it was the trial of the century. A young woman stood accused of brutally murdering her father and stepmother in a crime so heinous that it became a benchmark in human tragedy. A hundred years later, the Lizzie Borden case still resounds in the imagination. There are those who staunchly defend Lizzie´s innocence while others vehemently declare that she did it and that the murder was justified. In Elizabeth Engstrom´s brilliant novel, the dark psychology of the Borden household is laid bare. Lizzie; her sister, Emma, and their parents, Andrew and Abby Borden, are sharply illuminated - as are the paranoia and concealed hatred that secretly ruled the family. Domestic violence and dysfunctional families are not inventions of modern times. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rozanne Devine.

An EMP is a high-tech means of killing people the old fashioned way - through starvation, disease, and societal collapse. (Dr. Peter Vincent Pry) They never saw it coming. The most technologically advanced missile defense system in the world...Thousands of eyes, both human and artificial intelligence trained on the Axis of Evil - North Korea and Iran. The one direction they didn´t look was up. Nuclear Armageddon hangs over America like a mighty sword as the Lone Star Series continues with book two, Beyond Borders. American political leaders failed to heed the warnings as two bullies of the world unite. North Korea and Iran - the Axis of Evil - bring the battle to American soil. Most of the country is without power, and the new president must decide whether to retaliate and risk escalation of hostilities or focus on recovery to minimize loss of life. Through careful, prudent planning and protection of their power grid, the state of Texas emerged relatively unscathed from the EMP attack. But what now? New borders are defined.
