In The Fiscal Case against Statehood, Stephanie D. Moussalli investigates the territorial residents' fears that statehood will be expensive and examines the frontier development of government accounting practices. Moussalli analyzes financial reports from New Mexico and Arizona from the 1880s to the 1920s and finds a significant increase in the cost of government as well as an improvement in the governments' accountability for their use of the public purse.

An American Language is a tour de force that revolutionizes our understanding of U.S. history. It reveals the origins of Spanish as a language binding residents of the Southwest to the politics and culture of an expanding nation in the 1840s. As the West increasingly integrated into the United States over the following century, struggles over power, identity, and citizenship transformed the place of the Spanish language in the nation. An American Language is a history that reimagines what it means to be an American—with profound implications for our own time.

This study uses the financial statements of New Mexico, Arizona, and Nevada to examine the fiscal and accounting effects of statehood. Brennan and Buchanan's 1980 public choice Leviathan hypothesis of government argued that in the making of fiscal policy, government behaves as a self-interested actor whose goal is to increase its share of the economy. The Leviathan hypothesis implies that a government whose level of sovereignty increases, as when a territory becomes a state, will use its new power to increase the fiscal "bite" it takes from the economy for its own use. Territorial residents often oppose statehood on those grounds, though statehood proponents and historians generally see such fears as exaggerated. The quality and style of financial reporting by territories and early states varies widely by time and place, but no prior literature has systematically compared fiscal reports across the period of statehood. The reports of the two subject states, New Mexico and Arizona, were examined before and after statehood in 1912, and compared to the reports of the control, Nevada, which was a state throughout the period. Annual receipts, expenditures, and estimated true property values were calculated from the numbers found in the reports. "F" ratios of receipts and expenditures to property values and U.S. GNP were computed. For each report, observations were made of its treatment of a list of items including assets, liabilities, expenditures by type, receipts by source, tax rates, funds, interfund transfers, and so forth. Both graphical and regression analyses of the "F" ratio time series show that statehood had a large, statistically significant, positive effect on the relative fiscal price of government. The passage of time and regional economic variables had little or no effect on the subject governments' fiscal behavior. Qualitative content analysis of the financial statements indicates that while their quality improved gradually with time and Progressive-era accounting reforms, statehood also noticeably improved the reporting. These results support the conclusion that there is a Leviathan dynamic of statehood that increases the "price" a government charges the economy and that simultaneously improves the accuracy and clarity of its fiscal reporting.

Of all the sciences and social sciences, management is the one that most deliberately turns its back on the past. Yet management as we know it today did not spring into life fully formed. Management has more than just a present; it also has a past, and a future, and all three are inextricably linked. This book charts the evolution of management as an intellectual discipline, from ancient times to the present day. Contemporary management challenges, including sustainability, technology and data, and legitimacy are analysed through an historical lens and with the benefit of new case studies. The author helps readers understand how the evolution of management ideas has interacted with changes in society. By framing management's history as one of challenge and response, this new edition is the perfect accompaniment for students and scholars seeking meaningful study in the business school and beyond. Essential reading as a core textbook in management history, the book is also valuable supplementary reading across the humanities and social sciences.

New Mexico was ceded to the United States in 1848, at the end of the war with Mexico, but not until 1912 did President William Howard Taft sign the proclamation that promoted New Mexico from territory to state. Why did New Mexico’s push for statehood last sixty-four years? Conventional wisdom has it that racism was solely to blame. But this fresh look at the history finds a more complex set of obstacles, tied primarily to self-serving politicians. Forty-Seventh Star, published in New Mexico’s centennial year, is the first book on its quest for statehood in more than forty years. David V. Holtby closely examines the final stretch of New Mexico’s tortuous road to statehood, beginning in the 1890s. His deeply researched narrative juxtaposes events in Washington, D.C., and in the territory to present the repeated collisions between New Mexicans seeking to control their destiny and politicians opposing them, including Republican U.S. senators Albert J. Beveridge of Indiana and Nelson W. Aldrich of Rhode Island. Holtby places the quest for statehood in national perspective while examining the territory’s political, economic, and social development. He shows how a few powerful men brewed a concoction of racism, cronyism, corruption, and partisan politics that poisoned New Mexicans’ efforts to join the Union. Drawing on extensive Spanish-language and archival sources, the author also explores the consequences that the drive to become a state had for New Mexico’s Euro-American, Nuevomexicano, American Indian, African American, and Asian communities. Holtby offers a compelling story that shows why and how home rule mattered—then and now—for New Mexicans and for all Americans.
