Easterling presents case studies of three different sites characterized as “Believers” and “Cheaters.” The first is El Ejido in southern Spain, a high-tech agricultural site. Next she focuses on global trade hubs like Hong Kong and Rotterdam, which are positioned within a global network of similar enclaves, and existing in special economic zones. Finally, she addresses North Korea and its attempt to promote tourism.
