London: From the Walled City to New Towns


Arbitrary Borders Series

While borders may reflect and affirm the cultural, ethnic, or linguistic perimeters that define a people or a country, this series explores how the migration of goods, resources, and people works to undermine the separation imposed by such borders.

The book explores the role of arbitrary boundaries in shaping the history of the city of London.

Borders always have separated people. Indeed, that is their purpose. This series of books examines the important and timely issue of the significance of arbitrary borders in history. It describes arbitrary borders as places where people interact differently from the way they would if the boundary did not exist.

This series will show how the migration of people and exchange of goods almost always work to undermine the separation that borders seek to maintain. The continuing evolution of a European community provides a contemporary example illustrating this point.
