Summary
This book brings together the work of twenty-eight leading western historians who explore this area from a dazzling number of perspectives. They provide insightful portraits of the West as a distinctive place of many peoples and of many terrains. The authors provide important insights about many long-standing controversies, and they offer not only the fruits of the latest thinking about the West, but also a vivid sense of how people actually lived.--[book jacket]
