Island Enclaves: Offshoring Strategies, Creative Governance, and Subnational Island Jurisdictions
By: Godfrey Baldacchino (author)Hardback
1 - 2 weeks availability
Examining subnational island jurisdictions such as Guantanamo Bay, Macau, Aruba, the Isle of Man, and Prince Edward Island, Godfrey Baldacchino shows how these distinct locales arrange special relationships with larger metropolitan powers. He also deals with the politics, economics, and diplomacy of islands that have been engineered as detention camps, offshore finance centres, military bases, heritage parks, or otherwise autonomous regions. More than a study of how detached regions are governed, Island Enclaves displays the ways in which these jurisdictions are pioneering some of the modern world's most creative - and shadowy - forms of sovereignty and government.
Godfrey Baldacchino is a professor of sociology and Canada Research Chair in Island Studies at the University of Prince Edward Island.
