Nelson []. A major new account of the Eurasian borderlands as 'shatter zones' where the Habsburg, Russian, Ottoman, Iranian and Qing Empires competed for hegemony.

Alfred Rieber charts the rise and expansion of these multicultural, conquest empires from the late medieval period through to their collapse in the early twentieth century. About the by:   Focusing on ‘established’ Western European borderlands – with the exception of three contrasting cases – the book attempts a turn from conflict to harmony in the study of borderlands and thus examines the more mundane manifestations of border life and the complex, often unconscious motives of everyday cross-border : Elisabeth Boesen, Gregor Schnuer.

In Borderlands, the author examines these developments and ponders how the state and society will come to terms with the new reality. With the UK now leaving the EU, how will travel to Europe become affected and will the old 'hard' borders of the past be re-imposed or have we passed this by: 7.

'Borderland: A Journey Through the History of Ukraine' is a very readable and informative book on a country which I have visited briefly, but knew relatively little about.

First written in the late 's, it now includes a final section summarising the events of the last few years, including Russia's annexation of Crimea and the unrest in the east of the by:   Once I knew that I was going to Ukraine, I started looking for books about Europe's largest country but much to my chagrin, there is not much to choose from and definitely not very many books that aren't sort of more academic books.

Borderland is Europe and its borderlands. book wonderful book 4/5. But maps exist for states as well as individuals, and they need to be interpreted as expressions of power and knowledge, as Steven Seegel makes clear in his impressive and important new book.

Mapping Europe’s Borderlands takes the familiar problems of state and nation building in eastern Europe and presents them through an entirely new prism. The state has to submit its request to withdraw to the European Council and the two parties take it from there and negotiate a withdrawal agreement, which involves the country’s further relationship with the union.

If no agreement can be reached, the treaties of the EU would cease to apply to the withdrawing state after 2 years after its. John Shirley is the author of many novels, including Borderlands: The Fallen, Borderlands: Unconquered, Bioshock: Rapture, Demons, Crawlers, In Darkness Waiting, City Come A-Walk in', and Eclipse, as well as the Bram-Stoker-award winning collection Black Butterflies and Living Shadows.

His newest novels are the urban fantasy Bleak History and the cyberpunk thriller Black Glass/5(40). Examining contemporary cultural and political changes in Europe as they are reflected in the region's borderlands, this in-depth analysis combines the classical heritage of boundary studies with a profound understanding of the social construction of borders.

The book employs a rich variety of perspectives on globalization, the rise of national and ethnic identities, contemporary European.

The book’s contributors come from different backgrounds and from different parts of Ukraine, a country that stretches for over 1, km between its eastern and western borders.

They are mostly thirty-something-year-old poets who are prone to experiment with the language and the available poetics; they often cross the linguistic boundaries.

Borderlands/La Frontera: The New Mestiza [] is a semi-autobiographical work by Gloria E. Anzaldúa that examines the Chicano and Latino experience through the lens of issues such as gender, identity, race, and colonialism.

Borderlands is considered to be Anzaldúa’s most well-known work and a pioneering piece of Chicana literature. In an interview, Anzaldúa claims to have drawn Author: Gloria Anzaldúa. Borderlands is set in Southern Ireland, and Inspector Ben Devlin of the Garda investigates the death of a teenage girl whose body is found on the Tyrone-Donegal border between the Republic and Northern Ireland - the Borderlands of the title.

I first read this book about four years ago and have just re-read it/5. The European Union has been a success although there are certain members and countries that exist in Europe that do not want to be a part of it. Obviously, such a diverse collection of nations is bound to throw up differences, and one of the EU’s biggest problems is the smooth integration between member states of its policies.

The book traces the turbulent history of the borderlands that before World War constituted the frontier‐zones between the Austro‐Hungarian, German, and Russian empires and in the course of the twentieth‐century changed hands several times.

It subscribes to the notion that internal socio‐economic cleavages and ethnic rivalries — the most common patterns to the East European landscape. In Russia's cultural memory, the Caucasus is a potent point of reference, to which many emotions, images, and stereotypes are attached.

The book gives a new reading of the development of Russia's perception of its borderlands and presents a complex picture of the encounter between the Russians and the indigenous population of the Caucasus. The complex intertwining of history, memory, space, place and identity in borderlands is the topic of this edited collection.

Using a transnational analysis of multi-layered cases from the northern Adriatic and Central Europe, the essays address fundamental questions in the history of the twentieth century.

Borderlands: The Fallen is an extremely disappointing look into the Borderlands universe. From the cover and the description one can be led to assume, as I was, that the book has the potential to perhaps be the first of four going into the I am a pretty huge Borderlands fan/5.
