In 1990 the Coalition for Western Women's History inaugurated the Joan Jensen-Darlis Miller Prize to recognize outstanding scholarship on gender and the experiences of women in the North American West. Since then, the Jensen-Miller Prize committees have considered nearly two hundred submissions, and chosen thirteen for the skill and imagination with which the authors conducted research in original materials or reinterpreted a major problem in the field. Each piece was done with grace and style, and shaped the field for future historians. Women and Gender in the American Westcollects these essays for the first time on topics that range from Mormon plural marriages to women's experiences in Spanish Borderland slavery, from interracial marriage to the sexual exploitation of Indian women in British Columbia, from Navajo women weavers in the market economy to women's reform work in gold rush era San Francisco, from settler women in western Canada to Chicana activists in Texas. Beyond their topical interest, the essays also present the evolving analytical force of a field that has deepened and matured over time. Professors Jensen's and Miller's classic 1980 essay "The Gentle Tamers Revisited" is reprinted here along with a new Preface in which Jensen and Miller reflect on the course of scholarship as reflected in these essays.Women and Gender in the American Westis a rare compilation of cutting-edge history.

Gender Remade explores a little-known experiment in gender equality in Washington Territory in the 1870s and 1880s. Building on path-breaking innovations in marital and civil equality, lawmakers extended a long list of political rights and obligations to both men and women, including the right to serve on juries and hold public office. As the territory moved toward statehood, however, jury duty and constitutional co-sovereignty proved to be particularly controversial; in the end, 'modernization' and national integration brought disastrous losses for women until 1910, when political rights were partially restored. Losses to women's sovereignty were profound and enduring - a finding that points, not to rights and powers, but to constitutionalism and the power of social practice as Americans struggled to establish gender equality. Gender Remade is a significant contribution to the understudied legal history of the American West, especially the role that legal culture played in transitioning from territory to statehood.

The American West in history and for historians is a contested place. At one time, Frederick Jackson Turner's frontier thesis was the center of historical explanation of all of American history. For the present generation of American historians, the American West is a contested place where arguments about place, process, multi-culturalism, gender, environment, urbanization, and law focus popular and professional attention. This collection of published articles provides readers with both the traditional interpretations of the West and the "New West" view of the significance of place for people and events. The editors heavily emphasize gender and law in the analysis of each of the volumes. The volumes in this set are also available individually. Volume 1. Where is the West? (0-813-3456-7) Volume 2. Racial Encounters in the Multi-cultured West (0-8153-3457-5) Volume 3. The Gendered West (0-8153-3458-3) Volume 4. Environmental Problems in America's Garden of Eden (0-8153-3458-3) Volume 5. The Urban West (0-8153-3460-5) Volume 6. Law in the West (0-8153-3461-3)
