(p.1) Introduction
Borderland Narratives
Andrew K. Frank, A. Glenn Crothers
University Press of Florida

This introductory chapter lays out the major historiographic trends that have culminated in the current literature on American borderlands. It explores how Herbert Bolton used the term as a euphemism for the Southern frontier and how a series of scholars have overturned and challenged his presumptions. These include scholars of the West, Native America, Chicano/a studies, and they have pushed borderlands scholarship in new geographic and chronological directions. The introductory chapter further explores the collective and individual intellectual contributions of the volume’s essays.
