The critical biographies of borderlands—the conditions created by borders, boundaries and abandoned terrains—are evocative biographies of ‘no places’ and the people who no longer live there. Yet, these biographies are seldom recorded even though the passage of history through these so-called spatial ‘edges’ frequently leaves behind a rich palimpsest of cultural process.

The snacks (xiao chi 小吃) that are sold from the small shops and mobile stands of the city’s streets and alleyways - dumplings steamed in wooden baskets, nighttime barbeques, carts selling stir-fried noodles - are all disappearing.
