About This Book

This is a substantial detailed study of border controls and Asian migration patterns and how since the mid-19th century, they have increasingly shaped and altered political and national policies. Ways in which border control policies have accentuated social exclusions, awareness of individual and ethnic identities and national tensions are highlighted. Some long-term effects of the tensions of border controls and categorisation of populations are projected in this stimulating, if depressing volume. With source notes, bibliography and index.
