“If the hypothesis advanced by Frederick Jackson Turner in his famous 1893 essay on ‘The Significance of the Frontier in American History’ is valid, its importance today is greater than at any time in the past...This book attempts to...reappraise the entire hypothesis in the light of modern research in both history and the social sciences.” -from the Preface.
