Summary This innovative book examines the complexities of de-bordering and re-bordering through a systematic comparison of seven transborder subregions along the western Pacific Rim and an extended analysis of the U.S.-Mexico border and several European border regions. Xiangming Chen offers a synthetic explanation for the complex and diverse processes and outcomes of economic growth, social transformation, and urban landscapes in the new transnational spaces around the porous and mutated borders of the Pacific Rim and beyond.
