reviewed The American West: A Twentieth-Century History (Twentieth-Century American West) on
Malone and Etulain discuss economic, poltical, social and cultural developments in the West from the turn of the century to the onset of the Great Depression, when the region was still in a colonial relationship to the urban, industrial Northeast and upper Midwest; from 1930 to the end of WWII, when the West was transformed by New Deal programs and by even greater federal spending in military installations, and from 1945 to the present, when the West experienced rapid changes in demographics and a series of trendsetting lifestyles. Unique to this history are chapters about the rich cultural heritage of the modern West and about the lives of men, women, and children of various ethnic groups. Detail bibliographical essays are included.
