Politics in the Postwar American West, edited by Richard Lowitt, examines a variety of recent political issues in the nineteen states that constitute the American West. In the last fifty years the West has been at the leading edge of American political activity. Politics in the region is largely linked to the land. Water controversies have been common-place; accommodation between Indian and non-Indian residents is another significant issue; charismatic, provocative leaders have further enlivened the political arena. This thought-provoking book will interest readers from a wide range of disciplines, including history, political science, environmentalism and land use, economics, and American Indian studies.
