       : Frontiers -- Theory and History 
520    This book deals with the economics of establishing a 
       frontier by conquest or by peaceful settlement, the costs 
       involved, and the optimum extension of the territory. The 
       opening chapters discuss the most relevant literature 
       about frontiers - conceptual, theoretical and empirical - 
       and introduce the fundamental theoretical model for 
       extending frontiers which is drawn on throughout the book.
       The authors use this theoretical apparatus by applying it 
       to a number of historical cases. These include the 
       division of the European territory between the Byzantine 
       Empire, Islam and Western Europe, the creation and 
       expansion of the Mongol Empire, the impact of the Black 
       Death, the European discovery of the New World, the 
       staples trade from 1870–1914, and the rise and fall
       of banditry in Brazil.
