This essay uses China Miéville’s crime/speculative fiction novel to reflect on the social construction of place and law, and the role of transnationality in contemporary international law. In particular, it considers the role of international law in a world of interpenetrating jurisdictional orders not closely tied to exclusive territorial control.
