Amajor argument of this book is that borderlands are social processes, products of their contexts and producers of future contexts. In the following chapter I argue that the boundaries that regulate behavior within these borderlands are just as context dependent. These boundaries are not the neat, linear divisions that appear on a map and that we might imagine separating political entities. Instead, they are fluid, porous, and are continually being negotiated and renegotiated between the various communities living in the borderland. They include both zones of mixing and zones of separation on either side (Muldoon 2003, 4).
