About the Author:

James Spiller is Professor of History and Dean of the Graduate School at The College at Brockport, State University of New York, USA.

Review:

“Frontiers for the American Century is a sophisticated, nuanced, and welcome study of the cultural politics of the U.S. space and Antarctic programs. ... the book is a fascinating study of the complex and changing motif of the American frontier in the context of outer space and Antarctic exploration. ... Spiller thus gives welcome fine structure to one of the overarching frameworks of the Space Age ... .” (Steven J. Dick, Isis, Vol. 108 (1), March, 2017)
