''This must-read exploration of `intimate state encounters' exposes the complex relation between protection and exclusion, offering important insights into daily practices of care and the crafting of border regimes.'' Bridget Anderson, Bristol University ''Powerfully written with care and insight, this sensitive ethnography reminds us that even at `home', in shared domestic spaces, Roma families are subjected to Kafkaesque methods of state monitoring and surveillance. This is a wonderful account of life on the margins, placed on the outside but very much looking in.'' Colin Clark, University of the West of Scotland ''Home-Land is an important and incisive ethnography of the state that reveals just how deeply the border has invaded the ostensibly ''private'' lives and ''domestic'' space of the poorest and most racially subjugated of migrants.'' Nicholas De Genova, University of Houston
