From Library Journal:

Lowitt (history, Univ, of Oklahoma; The New Deal and the West, LJ 5/1/94) has edited a thorough collection of essays on post-World War II political history in the West. Each writer discusses what he or she considers the most important topic in each state's history. Coverage includes everything from the oil pipeline in Alaska to personal politics in Wyoming. Some writers concentrate on one topic through 50 years, while others provide a historical overview. Lowitt insures that each writer's style is even, so the reader hardly notices that each chapter was written by a different author. Appropriate for both public and academic libraries, this book will find its best audiences in libraries west of the Mississippi.?Grant A. Fredericksen, Illinois Prairie Dist. P.L., Metamora
