Editorial Reviews

?Thoughtfully conceived, intelligently edited, well (sometimes elegantly) written, this collection of 14 essays in the recent historiography of the frontier and the West attests to the vitality of American frontier history. Widely respected scholars contributed the essays. The subjects, which encompass the familiar definitions of the frontier fall into three general categories. These are: government and political matters; social questions; and aspects of economic development. ... Excellent chapter end-notes, index, sketches about contributors, in a well designed and handsomely printed collection. ... The volume as a whole makes an important contribution. For professionals in the field, major research libraries, and strong undergraduate collections.?-Choice
