Summary

The World of the American West is an innovative collection of original essays that brings the world of the American West to life, and conveys the distinctiveness of this diverse, constantly changing region. Twenty scholars incorporate the freshest research in the field to take the history of the American West out of its timeworn "Cowboys and Indians" stereotype right up to the present discussions of water rights and the presence of the defense industry. Other topics covered include the effects of leisure and tourism, western women, politics and politicians, Native Americans in the twentieth century, and of course, oil.The World of the American West will be the standard work of reference on the modern American West for all those in the field, and will go on to have a self-evident place as an undergraduate course book.
