Abstract:

"'Western-boundary-making' is a study of the ideas behind the boundaries drawn for Texas and the Mexican Cession in the 1840s. It includes as background an examination of the colonial precedents in American boundary-making and of the ideas of Thomas Jefferson. It also traces the development of boundaries in the Spanish-Mexican provinces of Texas, New Mexico, and the Californias as a prelude to the negotiations leading to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. This study focuses on the period from 1844 to 1850, the years of expansion under 'Manifest Destiny' and of boundary-making in the Compromise of 1850"--Page xiii.
