A Short Border Handbook

A Short Border Handbook

by Gazmend Kapllani (Author), Anne-Marie Stanton-Ife (Translator)

  • A unique perspective on being an immigrant - Kapllani, who left Albania in 1991 to make his home in Greece, diagnoses the malaise of "border syndrome" by relating key episodes in his own experience and that of those migrants who accompanied him.
  • A wonderful, memorable cast of characters: the hapless villager trying unsuccessfully to get through an automatic door for the first time, two truck drivers expecting the American ambassador to greet them in a detention centre. Now an academic and a journalist for a Greek newspaper, Kapllani is a noted commentator on migration, identity, and nationalism.
