Crossing the boundaries in our mind, or 'border crossings' is a common occurence in our everyday lives. Crossings take place frequently not just across cultures, but also across social groups, social class, generations and discourses. In a fast-paced, globalized world, these crossings have become even more prevalent. We are more "connected" than before and encounter borders which are not just geographical but political, social and cultural, and which increasingly challenge us to make more crossovers. This book is a collection of eight articles which document different types of border crossings. Seven are research-based papers of crossings in various contexts in Southeast Asia, Japan and the UK, while one is a Malaysian author's self-reflective personal narrative.
