Holding the line : borders in a global world by Heather N Nicol( )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2010 in English and held by 1,333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beyond walls : re-inventing the Canada-United States borderlands by Victor A Konrad( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2016 in English and held by 288 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a comprehensive examination of the Canada-USA border in its 21st century form, placing it within the context of border and borderlands theory, globalization and the changing geopolitical dialogue. It argues that this border has been reinvented as a 'state of the art', technology-steeped crossing system, while the image of the border has been engineered to appear consistent with the 'friendly' border of the past. It shows how a border can evolve to a heightened level of security and yet continue to function well, sustaining the massive flow of trade. It argues whether, in doing so, the US-Canada border offers a model for future borderlands. Although this model is still evolving and still aspires toward better management practices, the template may prove useful, not only for North America, but also in conflict border zones as well as the meshed border regions of the EU, Africa's artificial line boundaries and other global situations."--Jacket
Foreign policy toward Cuba : isolation or engagement?( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The fence and the bridge : geopolitics and identity along the Canada-US border by Heather N Nicol( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 208 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Fence and the Bridge is about the development of the Canada-US border-security relationship as an outgrowth of the much lengthier Canada-US relationship. It suggests that this relationship has been both highly reflexive and hegemonic over time, and that such realities are embodied in the metaphorical images and texts that describe the Canada-US border over its history. Nicol argues that prominent security motifs, such as themes of free trade, illegal immigration, cross-border crime, terrorism, and territorial sovereignty are not new, nor are they limited to the post-9/11 era. They have developed and evolved at different times and become part of a larger quilt, whose patches are stitched together to create a new fabric and design. Each of the security motifs that now characterize Canada-US border perceptions and relations has a precedent in border-management strategies and border relations in earlier periods. In some cases, these have deep historical roots that date back not just years or decades but centuries. They are part of an evolving North American geopolitical logic that inscribes how borders are perceived, how they function, and what they mean."--Publisher
