|A working bibliography of studies in comparatiave and transnational history. You have reached one of the history sites created and maintained by Richard W. Slatta, Professor of History, North Carolina State University.
- Why this bibliography? Walter Nugent, president of the Western History Association, offers one good reason. "This significance of the frontier in American history may well be that it instilled in us the bad habit of building empires. It would be worthwhile if we historians would explore why other frontier-settler societies behaved differently--why, for example, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, or Australian have not been as aggressive, verbally and militarily, as we have. Is it simply that they lacked our great size and economic clout, our demographic fecundity, or our imperial ideology? Were those the crucial differences? Let us compare." [Nugent, 2006 WWA presidential address, expanded as "The American Habit of Empire, or the Cases of Polk and Bush," Western Historical Quarterly, 38:1 (Spring 2007): 24.
bibliography began with my book, Comparing Cowboys and Frontiers: New Perspectives on the History of the Americas, published in 1997 (paperback 2001) by the University of Oklahoma Press. I have added more than 100 entries since then.
This is not an exhaustive bibliography on frontier studies. I have
included only references to publications that are explicitly comparative
or that treat frontiers beyond a single national perspective. I have
arranged the entries into topical categories for easier access.
The list at present concentrates on cowboys and ranch life in the
Western Hemisphere, but I welcome citations to other themes and to
frontiers elsewhere in the world. Please email additions, corrections,
etc. with full citations in the format used below. Thanks to Tom Barrett, William Reger IV, and Andrea Campetella for suggesting citations.
