The Annals of Iowa The book does not resolve what constitutes the West, nor does it present even the . Jacobs explains Turner's early life in his nafive Wiscorsin, his edu-cafion, teaching career, publications, and the development of his view-points. The book does not resolve what constitutes the West, nor does it present even the outline of a complete picture of the West. Perhaps these will always remain elusive ends. Never-theless, it is a magnificent volume. It effectively and compellingly presents the newly dominant historical perspectives on the American West. In addition, it provides a potentially stimulating context for understanding Iowa's history afresh.

Jacobs (history, UC Santa Barbara) chronicles the debate between traditionalist and revisionist views of Frederick Jackson Turner, "the father of Western history," and provides a new interpretation of Turner's life, work, and legacy, based in part on Turner's proposals involving the creation of international political parties, a world government, and his suggestions to cope with the threats of overpopulation and scarcity of resources.
