State sponsored abductions of criminals in Canada and the United States
What is it about?
During the 19th century, state sponsored kidnappings in Canada and the United States contained significant racial dimensions, did not disappear after each goverment's practical power along the border increased, and helped to make the border meaningful to everyday life.
Why is it important?
These findings emphasize that state-sponsored abductions, which began as a practical workaround to limited federal power in the borderlands, became ingrained in the legal systems of Canada in the United States and continued to be used well after the initial circumstances that led to their creation had disappeared.
