summary
The first English-language book to focus on northeast Sino-Russian border economies, Trust and Mistrust in the Economies of theChina-Russia Borderlands examines how trans-border economies function in practice. The authors offer an anthropological understanding of trust in juxtaposition to the economy and the state. They argue that the history of suspicion and the securitisedcharacter of the Sino-Russian border mean that trust is at a premium. The chapters show how diverse kinds of cross-border businessmanage to operate, often across great distances, despite widespread mistrust.
