Review quote

"Maps excellently portray different types of boundaries and transgressions ... Anderson has excellently illustrated the cartographic realities which add so much meaning to simple demarcating lines." Political Studies "Lucid survey ... Anderson has surveyed the major issues to do with state frontiers in the modern world. The book provides an excellent introduction to various special interests in frontiers." Democratization
