Overview


History of Nebraska was originally created to mark the territorial centennial of Nebraska, and revised to coincide with the statehood centennial. This one-volume history quickly became the standard text for the college student and reference for the general reader, unmatched for three generations. This third edition, which has been thoroughly revised and rewritten while preserving the spirit and intelligence of the original, affirms and extends that record. Incorporating the results of thirty years of scholarship and research, the third edition of History of Nebraska gives fuller attention to such topics as the Native American experience in Nebraska and the accomplishments and circumstances of the state’s women and minorities. It also provides a historical analysis of the state’s dramatic changes in the past thirty years.

This book is somewhat timeless but since it has not been updated since 1997 it does need to be supplemented for students of history who need recent information on Nebraska. It is refreshing, however, to find an author and publisher that doesn't see the need to churn out a 'new' edition every two or three years. History does change in interpretation and new discoveries that add to prior knowledge, but since this book is used as a text for history classrooms I found it nice to be able to find a quality used edition that didn't cost me a fortune.
