"[The contributors] demonstrate exceptional skill in interrogating the overlapping discourses of Whiteness and gender at the fairs. . . . Taken all together, perhaps this volume's greatest strength is the consistent excellence of each scholar's granular attention to detail aligned with tightly organized analysis such that each object in the metaphorical department store window feels necessary to the overall picture, never overfurnished."-Madison L. Heslop, Western Historical Quarterly
-- Madison L. Heslop * Western Historical Quarterly *
"[The Trans-Mississippi and International Expositions of 1898-1899] provides a significant addition of high-quality scholarly work to a fascinating topic, and does what good scholarship should do. It opens multiple conversations and lines of inquiry that will surely lead in any number of new directions."-Rachel McLean Sailor, Great Plains Quarterly -- Rachel McLean Sailor * Great Plains Quarterly *
"This edited collection deserves a serious look among scholars seeking to explore a host of themes in the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, from Native American history and Victorian femininity to imperialism and consumerism. Hopefully, Katz's commendable collection will inspire future work on other fairs that have too long been in the shadow of Chicago."-Michael S. Powers, H-SHGAPE -- Michael S. Powers * H-SHGAPE *
"[The Trans-Mississippi and International Expositions of 1898-1899] contains a number of interesting, readable, and important essays."-James Gilbert, Journal of American History -- James Gilbert * Journal of American History *
"This is a strong edited collection that will interest art historians, world's fairs scholars, indigenous studies researchers, and cultural and social historians of empire."-Nathan Cardon, Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era -- Nathan Cardon * Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era *
"[The Trans-Mississippi and International Expositions of 1898-1899] contributes fruitfully to the growing body of scholarship on popular culture that informs and enriches our understanding of the "fine arts" of the period."-Kimberly Orcutt, Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art -- Kimberly Orcutt * Panorama: Journal of the Association of Historians of American Art *
"This is an excellent collection that offers insight into the social and cultural history of these Omaha fairs and into the way that popular culture offered a venue for the construction of both U.S. imperial aims and regional identity during the Progressive Era."-Abigail Markwyn, associate professor of history at Carroll University and author of Empress San Francisco: The Pacific Rim, the Great West, and California at the Panama-Pacific International Exposition
