Sabina Perrino of Binghamton University reviews Crimes of Peace: Mediterranean Migrations at the World’s Deadliest Border by Maurizio Albahari. In Crimes of Peace, Albahari investigates why the Mediterranean Sea is the world’s deadliest border, and what alternatives could improve this state of affairs. He also examines the dismal conditions of migrants in transit and the institutional framework in which they move or are physically confined. His book illuminates crucial questions of sovereignty and rights: for migrants trying to enter Europe along the Mediterranean shore, the answers are a matter of life or death.
