State borders are somewhere the state is keen to stress its
presence and yet are simultaneously places where that
presence is challenged. They are sites of resistance to the
state, and at the same time places where the national
interest is vigorously maintained. This constant ambiguity
generates questions about the dynamics of borderland-state
relations, and about how what happens along the border can
undermine state policies. Using case studies of nation and
state relations in borderlands in Europe this book seeks to
understand how structures of power are created, experienced,
changed and reproduced.
