The era of globalization has produced significant changes in the borderland issues of trade, security, economics, health, and even the environment. While borders may seem more permeable than they once were, can it really be said that we live in a "borderless world"? Holding the Line considers the changing roles of modern borders, contending that they not only remain relevant but also have become increasingly important as a site for negotiating the competing demands of globalization and national sovereignty.
