Images and narratives on the border
Jopi Nyman and Johan Schimanski

conventional border zones and their territoriality, spectacularisation and agency in Mediterranean borderscapes, border trauma in narratives of the Finnish–Russian border, and discursive and lived representations of and responses to China's borderlands policy with its South-East Asian neighbours, the part opens up new ways of addressing borders and borderscapes in different social, historical and cultural contexts. In Chapter 3 , Holger Pötzsch examines the problem of territoriality and borders in the digital age through an investigation of the

The spa in Celtic Tiger Ireland
Ronan Foley

identities forms the foundations for the modern spa. Though the use of hot springs is embedded in many global cultures, especially in East Asia, the focus of this work will be on the commercially developed western spa model. Originating on the west coast of the USA in the 1940s, the popularity of the modern spa drew from a range of cultural shifts (Erfurt-Cooper and Cooper, 2009). Firstly, while European spa medicine had been practiced for centuries, the counter-cultural revolution of the 1960s brought with it a more critical take on conventional medicine and an increased

Seen and unseen migrants
Stephen F. Wolfe

guiding principle of European integration – improved competitiveness in the global market of goods and services – was grounded in a mistrust of the relatively poor East Europeans, not to mention the mistrust of those living in Africa and South-East Asia. In one of the largest acts of reterritorialisation of modern times, the EU refashioned its eastern edge from just an ideological border into what it considered a ‘civilizational fault line, adding cultural and ethnic criteria to political definitions’ of the threat to a New Europe in populations of people rather than

The restructuring of work and production in the international political economy
Louise Amoore

of restructuring. The costs and risks of restructuring are passed like a hot potato between different agencies, and risk-sharing, whether between firms for technological development, or between banks and firms for investment, or between groups of employees in consultation practices, is inhibited. Indeed, even in the context of a single management team, the process of individualisation results in a number of competing interpretations of global competition. During the East Asian crisis, for example, purchasing managers reported a competitive advantage in the low cost

Urban transformation and public health in future cities
Michael Keith and Andreza Aruska de Souza Santos

economic systems of the last fifty or so years; regimes of economic governance commonly characterised as neoliberal in the global north and its spheres of global influence, the dramatic rise of some middle-income countries in the late twentieth century, particularly in south-east Asia, and the distinctive China model of economic growth and social governance in the twenty-first century. All create contested urban development landscapes in which the logics of public health initiatives must intervene. In an urbanised and connected world, how to design spaces conducive to
