Contents Introduction : globalisation, mobility, citizenship and xenophobia in Southern Africa -- 1. Mobility, citizenship and xenophobia in South Africa -- 2. Citizenship, mobility and xenophobia in Botswana -- 3. Gender, domesticity, mobility and citizenship -- 4. Maids, mobility and citizenship in Botswana -- 5. Madams and maids : coping with domination and dehumanisation -- 6. Conclusion : requiem for bounded citizenship.
Summary Nyamnjoh?s book about the heightened xenophobia that both exploits and excludes is an incisive commentary on a globalizing world that reaches down into the grassroots of so many societies with consequences for ordinary people?s lives that have received all too little attention. He meticulously documents the fate of immigrants and the new politics of insiders and outsiders in these Southern African societies, at the same time delivering a telling commentary on the global rhetoric of open societies in an era of increasing closures and exclusions.
