Against this historical background, the articles address questions of economic history, cultural interchange, and political legitimation and contestation at critical historical junctures. They show in particular how historical developments in trade and commerce are interlaced with notions of wealth and value, and linked to political control and authority. Together they bring new, ethnographically oriented historical studies into the arena of theoretical approaches to borderlands and corridors of contact...

All articles of this special issue are available for free on the journal’s web site, and can also be acessed on Project Muse. The print issue of the journal is published by University of Hawai’i Press.
