Review

"Provides a provocative description of how Westerners perceived their region as a 'racial frontier,' an image that shaped their responses to immigrants in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.... Sheds much new light on their attitudes and actions, particularly in the two decades between 1910 and 1930." ELLIOTT ROBERT BARKAN, AUTHOR OF AND STILL THEY COME: IMMIGRANTS AND AMERICAN SOCIETY, 1920 TO THE 1990S "A valuable contribution to the literature of Western history and the history of immigration and ethnicity in the United States." JON GJERDE, AUTHOR OF THE MINDS OF THE WEST: ETHNOCULTURAL EVOLUTION IN THE RURAL MIDDLE WEST, 1830-1917 "A must-read for anyone interested in immigration history, and immigration policy, especially concerning the American West." WALTER NUGENT, AUTHOR OF CROSSINGS: THE GREAT TRANSATLANTIC MIGRATIONS, 1870-1914
