Summary
"With the end of apartheid rule and the on-going economic crisis in Zimbabwe, Francis Musoni observes that border crossing has become a way of life for many of those who live on both sides of the Limpopo River. This border has become one of the busiest inland ports in entry in the world and as border crossers wait for clearance, crime, violence, and illegal entries have become rampant. Musoni explores the many reasons for crossing a border, including searches for better paying jobs in South Africa and access to food and clothing at affordable prices, and sets these actions into a framework of illegality. He considers how countries have failed to secure their borders, why passports are denied to travelers, and how migration has become a phenomenon with a long history, especially in Africa. Musoni emphasizes cross-border travelers' active participation in the making of this history and how clandestine mobility has presented opportunity and creative possibilities for those who are willing to take the risk."--Provided by publisher
