Texas Blood


Roger Hodge

The Intercept

The clamor for secure borders is a recurrent motif in American politics. Today, however, technological assets exist, or will soon exist, that are capable of transforming that nebulous objective into a regime of passive control and active surveillance that is historically unprecedented. In his book “Texas Blood,” Roger Hodge follows the signs of the new borderland economies of place and power, sovereignty and subordination, surveillance and resistance.
