Overview

For the past half-century, area studies scholarship has been the principal filter through which scholars, policy makers, journalists, and the general public have organized knowledge about the larger world. The essays presented here reflect widespread recent interest in reconsidering the political, geographical, and cultural boundary lines conventionally observed by area specialists and others. They do not focus on any single region or specific theme such as industrialization in Japan or diplomacy during the Cold War. Rather they intentionally range widely through time and space, dealing with a broad array of issues and experiences to highlight the very general theme of cross-cultural interactions in numerous and diverse contexts.
