Politics at the Airport brings together leading scholars to examine how airports both shape and are shaped by current political, social, and economic conditions. Focusing on the ways that airports have become securitized, the essays address a wide range of practices and technologies--from architecture, biometric identification, and CCTV systems to "no-fly lists" and the privatization of border control--now being deployed to frame the social sorting of safe and potentially dangerous travelers.

This study is a chronological and thematic examination of the architecture and design of the American airport over a seventy-year period, from their invention in the 1920s to the latest design developments of the 1990s. The airport is a new and quintessentially twentieth-century building type. Composed principally of airfield, control tower, hangars, terminal(s), administration and service buildings, as well as runways and access roads, it is a totally designed and extraordinarily complex architectural space. It is also a special social environment, and the airport functions as a modern heterotopia of both freedom and control. Flight and its land-based expression of the airport, particularly the passenger terminal, are integral to modern life, and, as this dissertation discusses, played an important role in the constitution of modernity.

In the summer of 2009, Alain de Botton will be invited by the owners of Heathrow airport to become their first ever Writer in Residence. He will be installed in the middle of Terminal 5 on a raised platform with a laptop connected to screens, enabling passengers to see what he is writing and to come and share their stories. He will meet travellers from around the world, and will be given unprecedented access to wander the airport and speak with everyone from window cleaners and baggage handlers to air traffic controllers and cabin crew. Working with the renowned documentary photographer Richard Baker, de Botton will produce an extraordinary meditation upon the nature of place, time, and our daily lives. He will explore the magical and the mundane, personal and collective experiences and the interactions of travellers and workers all over this familiar but mysterious site. Like all airports, Heathrow (the 15th century village of Heath Row lies beneath the short stay car park) is a 'non-place' that we by definition want to leave, but it also provides a window into many worlds - through the thousands of people it dispatches every day. A Week at the Airport is sure to delight de Botton's large following, and anyone interested in the stories behind the way we live.
