David J. Weber Series in the New Borderlands History

Series Editors: Andrew R. Graybill, Southern Methodist University, and Benjamin H. Johnson, Loyola University Chicago

Editorial Advisory Board: Juliana Barr, Duke University; Sarah Carter, University of Alberta; Kelly Lytle Hernandez, University of California, Los Angeles; Cynthia Radding, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill; and Samuel Truett, University of New Mexico.

The study of borderlands--places where different peoples meet, and no one polity reigns supreme--is undergoing a renaissance. The David J. Weber Series in the New Borderlands History intends to publish works from both established and emerging scholars that examine borderlands from the pre-contact era to the present.

This series will explore contested boundaries and the intercultural dynamics surrounding them and will include projects in a wide range of time and space within North America and beyond, including Atlantic and Pacific worlds. Series editors welcome outstanding works that "speak back" to the rich literature that has developed over the last few decades, using the concept of borderlands to examine, analyze, and interpret both the North American borderlands and other areas connected to continental processes of making and crossing borders.

The books in this series are published with support provided by the William P. Clements Center for Southwest Studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas.

Please send proposals or ideas to Andrew R. Graybill (agraybill@smu.edu) or Benjamin Johnson (bjohnson25@luc.edu). Proposals may also be sent to Chuck Grench, assistant director and senior editor at the University of North Carolina Press, at charles_grench@unc.edu.
