It might help you to understand before you read the article.

How does the discussion of security function today? How do security regulations (like those by ports in the U.S. and Canada) allow discrimination to take place within the law? What are the connections between a new logistical rationality with a colonial and military past? how does the current model of a global supply chain shape how we think about and discuss countless aspects of modern society? please read the grading guidelines file that I've posted. Since it is 500-600 words essay, you try to not look at other sources, besides my source that I've attached (If you want, no more than 2 other sources) in-text Citation should be (Cowen 2010: pg#).
