Reviews

"Brimming with fresh insights on the modern West from an all-star roster of contributions, this stellar collection is an indispensable resource for understanding America's westward tilt and its broader significance to national and global history."--Margaret O'Mara "author of The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America "
"This book by distinguished scholars at the top of their game speaks to topics not usually taken up by historians of the post-war West. I am not likely to teach mid-twentieth-century Western history quite the same."--William F. Deverell "co-author of Shaped by the West "
"Exploring how mobilization for World War II and the early Cold War turned one region into a bellwether for the nation, World War II and the West It Wrought brings fresh insight and lucid prose to the task of explaining the profound changes to the mid-twentieth-century American West."--John M. Findlay "co-author of Atomic Frontier Days: Hanford and the American West "
