Editorial Reviews


“This wonderfully engaging book offers penetrating intellectual biographies of a memorable group of historians whose outlook reflected their Midwestern roots and perspectives. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources and writing with a storyteller’s eye for the telling detail, David S. Brown entices the reader to share his own delight in the play of ideas and the unpredictable quirkiness of human experience. Critically acute yet generous in spirit, Beyond the Frontier illuminates some of the twentieth century’s central ideological cross-currents as they played themselves out in his protagonists’ lives and work.”

(Paul Boyer, University of Wisconsin–Madison)

“David Brown here sketches out, with a deft but sure hand, a distinctly Midwestern persuasion in American historical writing. Although firmly grounded in regional consciousness—or perhaps because of that fact—the body of work generated by this outlook has greatly enriched the general fund of American self-knowledge and self-criticism, and remains a source of fresh illumination today. Yet until now this persuasion has gone largely unnoticed in most accounts of American thought and American historiography. Thanks to David Brown, that should soon cease to be the case.”

(Wilfred M. McClay, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga)
