Toward a Comparative History of Borderlands.
Baud, Michiel; Van Schendel, Willem
Journal of World History, v8 n2 p211-42 Fall 1997
Outlines a comparative approach to the social dynamics (struggles, adaptations, and cross-border alliances) in regions' bisected borders. Argues that borderland studies provide an indispensable corrective to historical narratives that accept the territoriality to which all modern states lay claim. Discusses borderland culture in relation to space, time, and overlapping networks. (MJP)
