Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Empires and Walls: Globalization, Migration, and Colonial Domination contains the table of contents, a list of illustrations, foreword and the preface. The book examines the defunct and dismantled ancient and modern walls, which include Hadrian's Wall in northern England and the Red Snake (Great Wall of Gorgan) in northeastern Iran, and Berlin Wall. It brings an example of an ideological wall that is erected by the colonized as a defensive protective shield using the case of Islamic hijab (veil) worn by Muslim immigrant women from northern Africa residing in France. The book presents two contemporary and still evolving border walls/fences erected by the United States (U.S.) and Israel on the U.S.-Mexican border and between Israel proper and the occupied Palestine, respectively.

Keywords: Berlin Wall; France; Hadrian's Wall; hijab; Israel; Palestine; United States (U.S.)-Mexican border
