Requirements: .PDF reader, 4.9MB
Overview: The American West and the World supplies a man-made advent to the transnational historical past of the American West. Drawing from the insights of new scholarship, Janne Lahti recenters the historical past of the U.S. West within the international contexts of empires and settler colonialism, discussing exploration, enlargement, migration, violence, intimacies, and concepts. Lahti examines established subfields of Western scholarship, comparable to borderlands research and transnational histories of empire, in addition to quite unexplored connections between the West and geographically nonadjacent areas. Lucid and incisive, The American West and the World firmly situates the historic West in its right kind international context.
