Text/BRAND NEW & Bright. Orange linen boards/NF w/trace discoloration DJ/VG; light edge wear & loss to upper back spine corner; under mylar. A historical hypothesis. Socio-economic treatise on the role of frontier regions on social institutions by American historian Walter Prescott Webb (1888-1963). Webb considers the new found territories of the 16th century as a determining factor in modern Western civilization. The volume argues that new lands discovered by Columbus and others precipitated the rise of great wealth and new institutions such as democracy and capitalism, thus, making the case that lands disappeared in the 1900s and so closed the frontier. Then, established social institutions fell under stress, resulting in the ecological and economic problems salient in the 20th century. His ideas were examined at the Second International Congress of Historians (1958), and again at an international symposium in 1972. Webb himself declared The Great Frontiers to be his most intellectual and thought-provoking work. Fine copy. N° de ref. de la librería 012038
