Caught in the Middle

Deborah Waller Meyers Demetrios G. Papademetriou
Price: $ 24.95

In a world with tremendous growth of goods and people flowing across borders, little attention has been paid to the communities through which these goods and people pass and in which people live. Caught in the Middle provides a fascinating look into the inner workings and realities of border communities along five international borders¿United States-Canada, United States-Mexico, Germany-Poland, Russia-China, and Russia-Kazakhstan. The volume focuses on innovative cross-border initiatives that contribute unique insights into the daily lives and local perspectives of border communities. Also, it presents a better understanding of the border management issues faced by countries worldwide, as well as of the nature of relationships between federal and local governments, community leaders, government officials, and local communities.

By shedding light on existing "best practices" and providing comparative analyses of the challenges and opportunities faced by communities, Caught in the Middle provides valuable lessons for policy makers, governments, and researchers alike.Contributors include Gustavo del Castillo (El Colegio de la Frontera Norte, Mexico), Jacqueline Hagan (University of Houston), Malgorzata Irek (Europa-Universität Viadrina, Germany), Grigory Kosach (Moscow State University), Alexsei Kuzmin (Russian State University for Humanities), Viktor Larin (Russian Academy of Sciences), Vladimir Mukomel (Center for Ethnopolitical and Regional Studies, Russia), Nestor Rodriguez (University of Houston), Anna Rubtsova (Carnegie Moscow Center), John Salt (University College London), Sandra Schmidt (European University Institute, Italy), and Andrea Witt (Humboldt University, Germany).
