Leti Volpp (Berkeley Law) has written a beautiful, thoughtful, and generous review of Islands of Sovereignty for Lawfareblog (link here). The review stands on its own as an illuminating account of some of the Trump administration's efforts to remake asylum processing on the southern border. Worth a read!
