KIRKUS REVIEW

An informed, critical analysis of the economics and politics of the Mountain West, -- Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Utah and Nevada -- both present and future. It is with this future that Prof. Garnsey of the University of Colorado is concerned, seeing a sharply defined alternative of a decline into a subsidiary dependency or development through national aid into a resources base and newly productive economic frontier with a stabilizing effect upon the nation as a whole. No tears of self pity in Mr. Garnsey's beer, for he is a firm believer in the American tradition of independence and self help, blaming the present slack in development, group interests, enfeeblement of liberal movement on the lack of foresight and constructive cooperation of the region itself. An unusual essay into national domestic economy through regional approach to analysis and problems.
