This  book critically challenges the usual territorial understanding of  borders by examining the often messy internal, transborder, ambiguous,  and in-between spaces that co-exist with traditional borders. By  considering those less visible aspects of borders, the book develops an  inclusive understanding of how contemporary borders are structured and  how they influence human identity, mobility, and belonging. 

The  introduction and conclusion provide theoretical and contextual framing,  while chapters explore topics of global labor and refugees,  unrecognized states, ethnic networks, cyberspace, transboundary resource  conflicts, and indigenous and religious spaces that rarely register on  conventional maps or commonplace understandings of territory. In the  end, the volume demonstrates that, despite being "invisible" on most  maps, these borders have a very real, material, and tangible presence  and consequences for those people who live within, alongside, and across  them.
