The twenty-first century has been an era of hardening borders-increased borderland patrols, surveillance, and militarization are widening the chasm between those who can vacation (or do business) where they please, and others whose movements are restricted by armed guards. But as journalist Todd Miller finds in Empire of Borders, the U.S. border is also becoming increasingly fluid, expanding thousands of miles outside of U.S. territory often to protect Washington's interests.
