'Bordering intimacy is an exceptional and timely analysis that does not just intervene in debates regarding immigration and citizenship, but sets an agenda for centring the family within these and much broader sociopolitical discussions of race, Britishness and liberal humanism.'
James Trafford, Sociology
'Joe Turner's fascinating book provides a compelling and timely analysis of the relationship between familial intimacy and the historical evolution of borders in Britain.'
Sara Marino, Border Criminologies
'Turner's book is both extraordinary scholarship and an unparalleled contribution at this critical juncture. All of our lives are profoundly affected by 'family', racial logics and the conceptual, juridical and territorial "bordering" power of states. Yet understanding these in relation is a prohibitive task given the complexities of each and their dispersion in knowledge silos. Skilfully and accessibly, Turner merges disparate areas of inquiry - imperial/colonial histories, intimate "family" relations, racial states, biosecurity regimes, migration/border politics - into an unprecedented but urgently needed "conversation" that illuminates crises of personal/national/global significance.'
V. Spike Peterson, Professor of International Relations, University of Arizona
