Building on a tradition of excellence in the publication of western American history, including field-defining books like Colin Calloway’s One Vast Winter Count, Margaret Jacobs’s White Mother to a Dark Race, and Anne Hyde’s Empires, Nations, and Families, the University of Nebraska Press announces a new series in the history of the West and its borderlands. Many Wests will be a destination series for distinguished scholarship in the history of the American West, broadly construed. Edited by renowned and award-winning scholars, this highly selective series will recruit manuscripts that are expected to make a major impact in the field of western history. The scope of the series will be broad, including environmental, indigenous, borderlands, gender, social, public, and legal history. To build a scholarly and intellectual community around the series, authors accepted for inclusion in the series will be given the opportunity to participate in a manuscript workshop with series editors and an invited outsider reader.
