Reviews

"Bold, dangerous, troubling, speculative, and playful, spinning stories from the vortex provided by the CSI episode outward and back-away from the West . . . and then back to the widening sense of what the `postregional' might mean."-Neil Campbell, professor emeritus of American studies at the University of Derby and author of The Rhizomatic West: Representing the West in the Transnational, Global, Media Age -- Neil Campbell "Morta Las Vegas stands as a vital contribution to the evolving conversation between poststructuralist thought and Western American history in the "post-truth" era."-Alex Trimble Young, Western Historical Quarterly -- Alex Trimble Young * Western Historical Quarterly *
