In Empire of Borders, journalist Todd Miller takes the reader with him on a journey. In Syria, Guatemala, Kenya, Palestine, Mexico, the Philippines, and elsewhere, Miller reveals how the United States is outsourcing its border patrol. Through training and aid programs and infiltration of its agents, the U.S. is effectively expanding its borders: to enforce U.S. imperial economic and strategic interests. Miller finds that borders aren't making the world safe but are the front-line in a global war against the poor.
Todd Miller has researched and written about border issues for more than 15 years. He resides in Tucson, Arizona and has spent many years living and working in Oaxaca, Mexico. His work has appeared in the New York Times, The Nation, San Francisco Chronicle, Guernica, and Al Jazeera English. He has written two other books: Storming the Wall: Climate Change, Migration, and Homeland Security (City Lights, 2017), and Border Patrol Nation: Dispatches from the Front Lines of Homeland Security (City Lights, 2014).
“Joining meticulous documentation and vivid on-the-ground research in multiple border hot spots around the planet, Todd Miller pulls the veil off the layers of borders and their policing that shape our world, revealing a stunning and terrifying reality. The artificiality of borders, and the commitment of the world’s wealthy and powerful to preserve their wealth and power through them, have never been so clearly laid out.” Aviva Chomsky, author of Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal
