Dr. Joshua Hagen, professor of geography, is the co-author of Borders: A Very Short Introduction which was published earlier this year by Oxford University Press. His co-author is Alexander C. Diener, an assistant professor of geography at the University of Kansas.
“From private gated communities to fenced national borders, and from gerrymandered electoral districts to bounded fiscal spaces we all live with (and against) barriers.” said Dr. Harm de Blij, professor of geography at Michigan State University in reviewing the book. “This lively, brief, current, impressively comprehensive and theoretically as well as philosophically inclusive ‘introduction’ is much more than that—it’s terrific coverage.”
Hagen is also the author of Preservation, Tourism and Nationalism: The Jewel of the German Past.
