Frontiers used to be thought of as a readily defined concept, a 'contact zone' between territories, peoples, cultures. Frontiers can be both tangible and imaginary, at once apparently definable and utterly nebulous. But their existence has ever been a source of fascination, stimulation and inspiration. This chapter focuses on the relationship between this reflection on frontiers and the Studies in Imperialism series. General editors may have some influence in commissioning books that help to guide the directions in which a series travels. The Series has always proceeded on the basis that it is open to all, that it has no hard ideological position. There have been considerations of the events and travails of migration through diaries and letters, of the experiences of different forms of identity. During the almost thirty years of the Studies in Imperialism series, terminologies have moved forward. The chapter explains how influential has the Series been.
