Border Criminologies blog seeks reviewers for new books that examine border control globally. In 2018 so far, the blog has been visited more than 95,000 times. Our contributors come from across the globe, including the US, Mexico, Congo, and various countries in Europe, and we reach readers in more than 100 countries, including the UK, the US, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Canada, France, Greece, Australia and India. Book reviews have become a regular part of the blog and are cited on publishers’ websites. This year we are pleased to welcome two new members to the Book Reviews team, Peter Mancina and Sanja Milivojevic, who will work together with Gabriella Sanchez.
Reviewers must demonstrate expertise in a border control-related area of study and an active research and publication profile. Reviewers should be advanced graduate students (including advanced MSc students), have a Ph.D., or work as professionals in a field, industry, agency, or organization with critical proximity to the implementation or contestation of border control apparatuses.
Reviewers must be able to write clearly and concisely in English for scholarly and public audiences in accordance with our guidelines for writing good book reviews. This includes composing 800-1000 word reviews that provide an exposition of a book, context for a book, and critical analysis. Reviewers are expected to not have close personal or professional relations to the authors whose books they propose to review.
