A wide-reaching, interdisciplinary examination of the links between New England and the Maritimes.
New England and Canada's Maritime provinces share centuries-old connections. In New England and the Maritime Provinces leading scholars examine this important relationship through analysis of themes common to both regions and show the effects of the evolution of the region from a borderland with ill-defined boundaries to a bordered land with defined political borders. They demonstrate that such boundaries are never absolute and that in some ways the region remains a social, cultural, and environmental borderland.
A significant addition to the growing field of transnational studies, New England and the Maritime Provinces reveals a relationship that, although sometimes troubled, retains its importance in the current era of globalization.
