Boundaries represent limits that confine, constrain, or exclude; yet they also provide identity, protection, and safety. Some boundaries are solidly grounded in geographical or ecological fact, others are superimposed by political action, and still others are conveyed by culture and tradition. In this volume of Whole Terrain, contributors explore the boundaries between states, nations, cultures, species, and ecosystems, as well as those dividing the safe from the toxic, and reality from belief. They look at what happens when traditional boundaries break down, but also at what occurs when political and geographic boundaries turn into barriers of steel, asphalt, and concrete.
