This survey of various African and Asian conflicts examines people's experiences on territorial borders and the ways they affect political configurations. By focusing on individuals' routines and daily life, these contributions treat borderland dynamics as actual political units with their own actions and outcomes.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Violence on the Margins represents, collectively, real progress in conceptualizing the idea of border violence both in its essence and in its great variety in diverse settings. Its comparative sweep marks an admirable advance in clarity and nuance when read in the light of the field's pioneers: Kopytoff, Barth, Leach, and Peter Sahlins.' - James C. Scott, Sterling Professor of Political Science and Anthropology, Yale University, USA

'This book is a delight. It vividly brings to life the complex politics of frontiers and borderlands in contested zones of Africa and Asia, and gives us fresh insights into processes of state-making, state-breaking, and renegotiation across critical fault-lines in the modern international system.' - Christopher Clapham, Centre of African Studies, Cambridge University, UK

'Benedikt Korf and Timothy Raeymaekers have given us with this book a highly valuable addition to the literature, one that gives momentum to the body of work pushing the study of borders and borderlands, and indeed frontiers, nearer the center of work on political spaces, institutional evolution, state formation, 'development,' and violent conflict. The comparative interest of the book - with Asian and African case studies - fizzes with inter-disciplinary creative tensions, enriches the reading of each case, and points to further useful work to come.' - Christopher Cramer, Head of Department, School of Oriental and African Studies, UK
