Sorry—this item is Out of Print

A provocative exploration of the intersections between postmodernism, postcolonialism, and the conceptual boundary known as the western frontier.

Exploring the cultural and literary borderlands between Native American, postcolonial, and postmodern theories of cultural representation, Carlton Smith explicates Frederick Jackson Turner's famous frontier thesis in terms of the repressed Other. Through readings of six important contemporary works by innovative writers, Smith provides rich insight into "minority" versions of the frontier.

CARLTON SMITH, Assistant Professor of Literature at Palomar College in California, also teaches at the Pauma Reservation Educational Center.
