The American West: A Twentieth-Century History (Twentieth-Century American West)

By Malone, Michael P.; Etulain, Richard W

University of Nebraska Press, 1989-10-01. Paperback. Very Good. 0803281676 Remainder. Clean, tight and unmarked. Price sticker inside. Product DescriptionThe mystique of the Wild West perpetuated by Buffalo Bill, Zane Grey and Louis L'Amour, John Wayne, and the Marlboro Man has hindered the serious study of the real region west of the ninety-eighth meridian. Michael P. Malone and Richard W. Etulain move beyond myth and beyond the influential frontier thesis advanced by Frederick Jackson Turner to write about the American West as it has actually developed in the twentieth century. In vivid detail they describe a region too richly varied and dynamic to be contained by the imagination. Extending into the 1980s, The American West: A Twentieth-Century History is the first comprehensive survey of the modern West to appear in many years.Malone and Etulain discuss economic, political, social, and cultural developments in the West from the turn of the century to the onset of the Great Depression, when the region was still in a colonial relationship to the urban, industrial Northeast and upper Midwest; from 1930 to the end of World War II, when the West was transformed by New Deal programs and by even greater federal spending in military installations; and from 1945 to the present, when the West experienced rapid changes in demographics and a series of trendsetting lifestyles. Unique to this history are chapters about the rich cultural heritage of the modern West and about the lives of men, women, and children of various ethnic groups. Detailed bibliographical essays are included.About the AuthorMichael P. Malone, a professor of history at Montana State University, is the author of many books and the editor of Historians and the American West, published by the University of Nebraska Press in 1983. Richard W. Etulain, a professor of history at the University of New Mexico, is the editor of A Bibliographical Guide to the Study of Western American Literature (University of Nebraska Press, 1982) and other publications.

Under an Open Sky: Rethinking America's Western Past

By Cronon, William; Miles, George

W W Norton & Co Inc, 1992-03-01. Hardcover. Like New. 039302993X From Kirkus ReviewsThirteen wide-ranging essays form an introduction to the cutting edge of western scholarship in this Festschrift to Yale historian Howard Roberts Lamar, who also contributes a chapter. The editors, themselves Yale-affiliated, attempt in their introductory remarks to provide a road map to the concerns and orientation of a new generation of historians by describing the settlement of the West in terms of its transition from frontier to region. Defining the parameters of the transition as ``species shifting'' (when ecological changes occur as Old World organisms- -e.g., rats, bluegrass--are introduced), ``market making,'' ``land taking,'' ``boundary setting,'' ``state forming,'' and ``self shaping,'' the writers view the transformation as far more complex and dynamic than allowed in older interpretations of ``westering,'' such as that of 19th-century historian Frederick Jackson Turner. Each editor offers an essay demonstrating the new formulation: Cronon analyzes the Kennecott Copper Company's 30-year presence in Alaska, which ended in 1938; Miles details the significance of the Cherokee Advocate, a Cherokee-language newspaper published intermittently over more than 60 years until 1906; Gitlin tackles the Mississippi Valley ``frontier'' as the site of several competing European traditions, including Spanish, French, and Anglo-American. Other essays cover equally diverse subjects, from Patricia Nelson Limerick's (Univ. of Colorado/Boulder) assessment of western myth and symbol in Turner, Henry Nash Smith, and others to Martha A. Sandweiss's (Mead Art Museum/Amherst) study of western art and visual images captured by 19th-century photographer Timothy O'Sullivan and his peers. An articulate and provocative collection--with something for lovers of western facts and figures, as well as for the more theoretically inclined. (Photographs--not seen.) --
