Encyclopedia of Politics of the American West
Steven L. Danver, Walden University

The Encyclopedia of Politics in the American West is an A to Z reference work on the political development of one of America’s most politically distinct, not to mention its fastest growing, region. This work will cover not only the significant events and actors of Western politics, but also deal with key institutional, historical, environmental, and sociopolitical themes and concepts that are important to more fully understanding the politics of the West over the last century.

"...In this cogently written, logically organized encyclopedia, editor Danver has produced a worthy reference title that tackles what he considers to be America's "most politically distinct and fastest-growing" region....Overall coverage is wide-ranging and backed by seamlessly integrated scholarly information. The book is politically balanced and judicious in scope, and Danver and his team of scholarly contributors have accomplished a unique, easily searchable work that will surely find many imitators and is deserving of a home in most academic libraries." - Brian Odom

"While this set is specialized in terms of coverage and subject matter, it transcends those academic limitations because of its interdisciplinary nature....VERDICT: This set, which appears unique in its examination of the intersection of geography and politics, sets a high bar for subsequent forays into this field. Highly recommended for purchase by larger public libraries, especially those that support political science or social studies curricula." - Michael Bemis, St. Paul
