CHOICE Review

Hall (Oklahoma), erstwhile professor at Navajo Community College, Arizona, has made a significant contribution to historical sociology. Scholars in the social sciences can learn from his synthesis of history, geography, anthropology, sociology, and world-systems theory. The work is a sweeping survey of social change in the American Southwest. Hall stresses that social change is complex; it must be understood that global, regional, and local changes all shape and influence one another. Accordingly, the work proceeds from local to regional to global sources of change. The chapters are organized topically rather than chronologically, though the topics progress from the late 14th century to the close of the 19th century. Hall emphasizes the dynamism of the Southwest and thereby avoids tradition as an explanation of events, all too prevalent in the histories of the Spanish Borderlands. The people of the Southwest are placed in a larger and more vivid context. Extensive notes are carried as parenthetical statements within the text. The book deserves a wide audience, though scholars will find it most useful as both a narrative and a model for further research. College, university, and public libraries. -L. G.
