520    In the electronic age, documents appear to have escaped 
       their paper confinement. But we are still surrounded by 
       flows of paper with enormous consequences. In the planned 
       city of Islamabad, order and disorder are produced through
       the ceaseless inscription and circulation of millions of 
       paper artifacts among bureaucrats, politicians, property 
       owners, villagers, imams (prayer leaders), businessmen, 
       and builders. What are the implications of such a thorough
       paper mediation of relationships among people, things, 
       places, and purposes? Government of Paper explores this 
       question in the routine yet.
