In the world that we are living in today, people should be mindful of the ways their analyses confirm the common presumption that human history has been characterized by bounded geographical and cultural areas. As the author started writing this book, the thought that came into his mind was to challenge notions of discrete socio-cultural spaces and limited interactions which shape people's understanding of the past and give rise to a person's wonder at a “globalized” present. The author hopes that through his writing in this book that he can offer a reflection on the seemingly sense of out of placeness, on the social lives of people and objects well beyond the boundaries of nation, continent, or sea which people regularly imagine to have been historically restrictive.
