Overview
The Borderlands Project is meant to promote greater recognition and understanding of the status of the United States and Canada as border neighbours. It is a comprehensive study of transborder attributes undertaken by a multidisciplinary team of social science and humanities scholars from both sides of the border. The fourteen essays in this volume examine history, economics, the environment, literature, politics, and trade, with reference to specific regions and the border at large. They provide a new set of lenses for policymakers, educators, and librarians, and sharpen the images of reality formed by competition and cooperation between two industrial democracies in North America.
