Nevada has changed dramatically over the past quarter century, and in this third edition of The Silver State, renowned historian James W. Hulse recounts the major events - historical, political, and social - that have shaped our state. Hulse's cohesive and readable approach offers students and general readers an accessible account of Nevada's colorful history. The new edition highlights the social and political changes that have occurred since the original publication of The Silver State in 1991. Hulse discusses the impact of a growing population; changes in the economy and educational system; expanding roles of women; recent developments in state politics, including the 2003 legislative session; the influence of Nevada's growing ethnic population and increasingly divergent demographic groups; and the impact of federal policies, including President George W. Bush's 2002 decision to authorize the opening of a nuclear-waste repository at Yucca Mountain. In addition, all the recommended-reading lists have been updated. The Silver State explores many dimensions of the Nevada experience and its peoples - from the prehistoric Anasazi Indians to the creators of extravagant casinos on the Las Vegas Strip; from duststained Comstock miners to the state's contemporary and very cosmopolitan Sunbelt population. This book will inspire readers to take another look at the rich cultural heritage and eventful history of Nevada, the Silver State.
