New England and the Maritime Provinces: Connections and Comparisons

This one is on my list of new books to read. Here's a excerpt from the publisher:

New England and Canada's Maritime provinces share centuries-old connections. In an important new contribution to the growing field of transnational studies, the authors in New England and the Maritime Provinces take a critical and analytical approach to comparisons between these two regions.

Leading scholars examine the relationship through analysis of historic, economic, political, social, cultural, and environmental themes common to both regions. They show what the effects have been, on both sides of the border, of the evolution of the region from a borderland with ill-defined boundaries to a bordered land with defined political borders. They further demonstrate that such boundaries are never absolute and that in some ways the region remains a social, cultural, and environmental borderland.


The list of contributors is impressive.
