Abstract

We are in the age of globalization, mass migration, and trans-nationalism, making it mandatory that scholars (as well as more casual observers) include borderlands in their national studies. Furthermore, these borderlands have a vibrant (if largely ignored or isolated) and telling history which form the foundation (and provide an explanation) for today's realities. So argue the editors of this fine book in their long, carefully researched, cogently analyzed, and clearly written introduction. The essays (termed "stories") which follow prove the point. Scholars examining countries, regions, even international relations have pushed borders, well, to the borders of their work.
