The concluding chapter returns to the four methodological points concerning regional history which were discussed in the introduction and now considers four further points which build on these: firstly, how to define a region; secondly, how to talk about the space in a region; thirdly, the idea that difference might be a more productive leitmotif than similarity for writing regional history; and finally the relationship between regionalism and imperialism. In each case relevant case studies from the preceding studies are adduced to illustrate the methodological points under discussion and to bring out connections between the individual chapters.
