A New Significance: Re-Envisioning the History of the American West

by

A New Significance: Re-Envisioning the History of the American West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1893, Frederick Jackson Turner published his revolutionary essay, "The Significance of the Frontier in American History." A century later, many of the country's most innovative scholars of Western history assembled at a conference at Utah State University under the direction of historian Clyde A. Milner II. Here they delivered papers meant to map the exciting new territory opened in recent years in the history of the West. Gathering the best of these essays, this collection aims to produce a compelling assessment of the newest Western historiography. The timely, vigorous entries go beyond conventional narratives of westward expansion, and make clear the stimulating uses of scholarship informed by recent critical and multicultural theory. Contributors include William Deverell on the significance of the West in American history; David Gutiérrez on Mexican Americans and cultural identity; Susan Rhoades Neel on nature and the environment; Gail M. Nomura on Asia and Asian Americans; Anne F. Hyde on cultural perceptions; David Rich Lewis on twentieth-century Native Americans; Susan Lee Johnson on men, women and gender; and Quintard Taylor on the history of African Americans in the West. Each essay is accompanied by commentaries written by other top scholars in the field, and the eminent historian Allan G. Bogue supplies a lucid introduction.

Synopsis:

These essays represent a reinterpretation of the American West in terms of the issues and subjects of late 20th century America. The emphasis is on younger scholars. The result is a basic book on the state and direction of Western history.
