Why do empires build walls and fences? Are they for defensive
purposes only, to keep the 'barbarians' at the gate; or do they
also function as complex offensive military structures to subjugate
and control the colonized? Are the colonized subjects also capable
of erecting barriers to shield themselves from colonial onslaughts?
In Empires and Walls Mohammad A. Chaichian meticulously examines
the rise and fall of the walls that are no longer around; as well
as impending fate of 'neo-liberal' barriers that imperial and
colonial powers have erected in the new Millennium. Based on four
years of extensive historical and field-based research Chaichian
provides compelling evidence that regardless of their rationale and
functions, walls always signal the fading power of an empire.
