Excellent comparative volume that looks at the mechanics of deportation across the world. Some chapters are more critical than others but generally very informative and the editors make a point of showing how deportation is constitutive of modern citizenship and state sovereignty.

From the double-barrelled introduction and onward into the volume's depths, this book is a vociferous attempt to carve out concepts from the as-yet nascent deportation studies --- and it greatly succeeds. A couple of reprinted essays rounds out a collection of new work, and methodologies range from full theoretical assemblages to qualitative ethnography, but not much statistics or quantitative work (reflecting the authors' shared suspicion of the nation-state container). Great stuff here!

“Pointing to a trend in Western democracies, Agamben posits that the declaration of an emergency state of exception itself has gradually been replaced by a “generalization of the paradigm of security as the normal technique of government” (2003/2005, 14), that is, the state of exception or emergency has become integrated in the normal functioning of the state.” 0 likes
