Description
This first substantive encyclopedia of the American Midwest as a distinct region embraces a large and diverse area, describing its rich history and defining many aspects of its character. The 22 sections each cover broad themes in longer introductory essays, filling in the details in the shorter entries that follow. It includes portraits of the region's 12 states, followed by entries on society and culture, community and social life, and economy and technology. Here too is a wealth of information about the region's ethnic diversity, describing a vast array of foods, languages, styles, religions, and customs.

"Unlike some state and regional encyclopedias, which seem to inundate the reader with facts and figures but never really relay a feel for their subject, this one was clearly created with the aim of endowing the reader with a sense of the American Midwest and its people.... This encyclopedia also gets kudos for one of the most comprehensive sections on labor- and class-related issues that it has been my pleasure to read."Western Folklore
