Product description

Review

"Their sights set on global movements of labor - skilled or unskilled, legal or illegal - Mezzadra and Neilson mount the most ambitious attempt yet to leverage the idea of the border into a major theoretical tool for the study of global capital. They add a rich and powerful voice to contemporary debates on globalization."--Dipesh Chakrabarty, author of "Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference"

"Their sights set on global movements of labor skilled or unskilled, legal or illegal Sandro Mezzadra and Brett Neilson mount the most ambitious attempt yet to leverage the idea of the border into a major theoretical tool for the study of global capital. They add a rich and powerful voice to contemporary debates on globalization." Dipesh Chakrabarty, author of Provincializing Europe: Postcolonial Thought and Historical Difference"

Against liberalism s duplicitous dream of a universal political language, Border as Method explodes on the scene voraciously combining, re-inventing, pulling apart, putting together, layering, sifting and dissecting contemporary theories and knowledge of what our capitalist world is becoming and how we might change it. --Rogier van Reekum "Krisis ""

This is a rich, conceptually rewarding work. It will be required reading for those making sense of the modern redefinition of borders, the forms of subjectivity that they create, and the diverse, innovative ways in which that subjectivity is resisted and redefined. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections. --R. W. Glover "Choice ""

"An ambitious work of politically engaged social theory that attempts to reconceptualize issues of labor, migration, sovereignty, and governmentality."--Jeffrey Kahn "PoLAR "

For scholars and activists alike, this is a great book that offers a social theory of the border drawing from rich empirical, historical and theoretical work. --Henrik Lebuhn"International Journal of Urban and Regional Research" (06/01/2015)"

"Sandro Mezzadra and Brett Neilson illustrate the fecundity of the unity of opposites. Arriving from two extremities of the global world, using the border as a 'method, ' they analyze how the antithetical patterns of 'border crossing' and 'border reinforcement' generate 'border struggles, ' hence subjectivities, intelligibilities, commonalities. The threshold to justice is shifted, as are the articulations of violence and language that build a new humankind. The book asks not who we are, but who we become."--Etienne Balibar, author of Equaliberty: Political Essays

"This is an agenda-setting book that brings together issues of migration, labor, sovereignty, and the common into a coherent and powerful theoretical and political vision. By treating the border not as a site but as a method, Sandro Mezzadra and Brett Neilson demonstrate both that borders are not isolated at the margins of social space but instead run through it, and that borders have become the privileged lens through which to view contemporary politics."--Michael Hardt, coauthor of the books Declaration, Commonwealth, Multitude, and Empire
