Founded in 1907, the Organization of American Historians (OAH) is the largest professional society dedicated to the teaching and study of American history.
On Saturday from 1:00-2:30 p.m. the Many Wests series editors will host the session, “State of the Field: Western History.” One of our newest series, Many Wests will be a destination series for distinguished scholarship in the history of the American West, broadly construed.
Stop by the booth to check out some the latest books in the field!
“An essential part of the library of anyone interested in the American West or Utah and the Mormons.”—Richard H. Jackson, Western Historical Quarterly
Phillip B. Gonzales
“With the knowledge that this book focuses on the first thirty years of the American period of New Mexico history, historians will find Política a detailed and valuable contribution to our understanding of Nuevomexicanos that expands our horizons beyond the previous political histories of Americano leaders in this same era.”—Cameron L. Saffell, Southwestern Historical Quarterly
Michael D. Wise
“Producing Predators should be on the short list for scholars interested in further exploring the tensions embedded in Western history, particularly the convoluted intersections between labor, race, and ecology that Wise so deftly uncovers in his first book.”—Frank Van Nuys, Annals of Wyoming
