Overview

"Perhaps most importantly, the New Western History offers a more balanced view of the American past. It includes failure as well as success; defeat as well as victory; sympathy, grace, villainy, and despair, as well as danger courage, and heroism; women as well as men; varied ethnic groups and their differing perspectives as well as white Anglo-Saxon Protestants; an environment that is limiting, interactive, and sometimes ruined as well as mastered and made to bloom; a parochial economy alternately fueled and abandoned by an interlocking national and world order; and finally, a regional identity as well as a frontier ethic. . . . If the New Western History does nothing else, it helps us consider the old and familiar in new ways. And, if we are fortunate, these new perspectives will be relevant to our times."—from the Introduction

Author Biography: Patricia Nelson Limerick is associate professor of history at the University of Colorado at Boulder and author of The Legacy of Conquest: The Unbroken Past of the American West.

Clyde A. Milner II is professor of history at Utah State University and editor of the Western Historical Quarterly.

Charles E. Rankin is editor of Montana The Magazine of Western History.

Editorial Reviews

Western Historical Quarterly
Among the most stimulating, thought provoking, and, at the same time, most controversial publications dealing with western American history.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This volume showcases some of the best of the new Western history, a school that seeks to correct omissions and inadequacies in traditional historical treatment of the American West. These revisionists view the West as a region that had its own cultures before the arrival of Anglo-Americans rather than as virgin territory to be conquered; the roles of women, Native Americans and Mexicans fill out the picture. The deans of traditional Western history, Frederick Jackson Turner and Walter Prescott Webb, come in for a fair amount of criticism. While several of the articles are historiographic, defining this new mode of analysis, others--such as Walter Nugent's ``Frontiers and Empires in the Late Nineteenth Century,'' which draws parallels between 19th-century colonialism and America's westward expansion--are both accessible and informative. In all, the 12 essays provide a worthy introduction to an ongoing reappraisal of our frontier past. Limerick is the author of The Legacy of Conquest ; Milner wrote Major Problems in the History of the American West ; and Rankin is editor of Montana: The Magazine of Western History . (Nov.)
Booknews
