Product Description


Harsha Walia has played a central role in building some of North America's most innovative, diverse, and effective new move­ments. That this brilliant organizer and theorist has found time to share her wisdom in this book is a tremendous gift to us all. --Naomi Klein

Harsha Walia's 'Undoing Border Imperialism' demonstrates that geography has certainly not ended, nor has the urge for people to stretch out our arms across borders to create our communities. One of the most rewarding things about this book is its capaciousness - astute insights that emerge out of careful organizing linked to the voices of a generation of strugglers, trying to find their own analysis to build their own movements to make this world our own. This is both a manual and a memoir, a guide to the world and a guide to the organizer's heart. --Vijay Prashad, author of The Darker Nations: A People s History of the Third World

Border imperialism is an apt conceptualization for capturing the politics of massive displacement due to capitalist neoglobalization. Within the wealthy countries, Canada's No One Is Illegal is one of the most effective organizations of migrants and allies. Walia is an outstanding organizer who has done a lot of thinking and can write - not a common combination. Besides being brilliantly conceived and presented, this book is the first extended work on immigration that refuses to make First Nations sovereignty invisible. --Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, author of Indians of the Americas and Blood on the Border

5.0 out of 5 stars For A World Without Borders! 25 Nov. 2013
By wildflowerboy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In "Undoing Border Imperialism", South Asian activist Harsha Walia and over twenty other migrant justice activists explore the complicated intersections between decolonization, anti-capitalism, gender liberation, First Nations sovereignty, anti-imperialism, disability justice, and ecological sustainability. Focusing on the issues of working-class racialized immigrants in North America, particularly Canada, this exciting new book importantly interconnects the struggles for indigenous self-determination with the struggles of undocumented immigrants against the military-surveillance-prison-industrial-complex. Infusing Third Wave feminism with radical queer theory, this anthology furthermore tackles the problems of homonationalism and Western feminisms that essentialize communities of color as inherently heterosexist, transphobic, and patriarchal, thus deconstructing the pervasive neoliberal Western narratives which right-wing politicians and the capitalist media use to justify military interventions and corporate globalization. Given the current context of heightened Islamophobia, rampant militarism, white supremacy, climate chaos, economic inequality, settler colonialism, and heteropatriarchy, immigrants of color and indigenous peoples are more vulnerable than ever. As such, this book is a wake up call for the radical left to unite in solidarity with oppressed people around the world to tear down the borders that keep us divided and defeated. With beautiful illustrations by Melanie Cervantes of the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative, "Undoing Border Imperialism" is another excellent contribution to the Anarchist Intervention Series co-published by AK Press and the Institute For Anarchist Studies. I strongly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love her passion 7 Jan. 2014
By Glenn Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Harsha Walia is a no holds barred (im)migrant rights activist. I love her eloquence in calling out the double standards and hypocrisy of xenophobic immigration laws.
