The comparative approach to the understanding of history is increasingly popular today. This study details the evolution of comparative history by examining the career of a pioneer in this area, Herbert E. Bolton, who popularized the notion that hemispheric history should be considered from pole to pole. Bolton traced the study of the history of the Americas back to 16th century European accounts of efforts to bring civilization to the New World, and he argued that only within this larger context could the histories of individual nations be understood. After American entry into the Spanish-American War in 1898, historians such as Bolton promoted the idea of comparative history, and it remains to this day a significant historiographical approach. Consideration of the history of the Americas as a whole dates back to 16th century European treatises on the New World. Chapter one of this study provides an overview of pre-Bolton formulations of such history. In chapter two one sees the forces that shaped Bolton's thinking and brought about the development of the concept. Chapters three and four focus upon the evolution of the approach through Bolton's history course at the University of California at Berkeley and the reception of the concept among Bolton's contemporaries. Unfortunately, Bolton never fully developed the theoretical side of his arguement; thus, chapter five chronicles the decline of his ideas after his death. The final chapter reveals the survival of the concept, which is now embraced by a new generation of historians who are largely unfamiliar with Bolton's instrumental role in the promotion of comparative history.

This definitive biography offers a new critical assessment of the life, works, and ideas of Herbert E. Bolton (1870–1953), a leading historian of the American West, Mexico, and Latin America. Bolton, a famous pupil of Frederick Jackson Turner, formulated a concept—the borderlands—that is a foundation of historical studies today. His research took him not only to the archives and libraries of Mexico but out on the trails blazed by Spanish soldiers and missionaries during the colonial era. Bolton helped establish the reputation of the University of California and the Bancroft Library in the eyes of the world and was influential among historians during his lifetime, but interest in his ideas waned after his death. Now, more than a century after Bolton began to investigate the Mexican archives, Albert L. Hurtado explores his life against the backdrop of the cultural and political controversies of his day.

As a group, American frontier historians have been uniquely influential within and beyond their profession. Frederick Jackson Turner in particular stands out, but many others in the field contributed theories, hypotheses, and pivotal works that have permanently altered American conceptions of history. This new reference is the first volume to provide comprehensive information on the most prominent historians of the frontier. Fully annotated, it presents individual analyses of more than 50 historical scholars who helped to shape research, writing, and critical thought on the American frontier and American history in general. Each chapter is prepared by a different specialist and includes a brief biography, a complete summary of articles and books, and a detailed analysis of the historian's work. Historians of the colonial, trans-Appalachian, and trans-Mississippi frontiers are represented together with scholars who were primarily concerned with agricultural history, the Spanish Borderlands, land policy, railroad history, Native American studies, or other specialized subject areas. A valuable resource for students and scholars working in American frontier history and related fields, this book is an appropriate selection for historical societies and academic and public libraries.
