Over the past twenty-five years historians have created a 'New Western History', which has aimed to rewrite the 'Old Western History' created around the famous Turner thesis on the significance of the American Frontier. Focusing on five main themes, this study examines the dynamics and progress of recent scholarship in the issues of land use, the environment, race, ethnicity, gender, business and the development of communities. Synthesizing prolific research, it offers a clear and up-to-date review of American history and includes a complete bibliography.


1. The Frontier and the West: realities, myths and the historians; 2. Lands and landscapes: occupation and ownership; 3. Peoples and migrations; 4. Making a living: early settlements and farming; 5. Making a living: non farming occupations; 6. Western communities; 7. Epilogue.


Margaret Walsh is a Professor of American Economic and Social History in the School of American and Canadian Studies of the University of Nottingham.
