Alaska, an American Colony by Haycox

Alaska has not evolved in a vacuum. It has been part of larger stories: the movement of Native peoples and their contact with and accommodation to Western culture, the spread of European political economy to the New World, and the expansion of American capitalism and culture.Alaska, an American Colony traces Alaskas development from the early postcontact period through Russian America and U.S. territorial status and statehood, including an overview of the regions geography and emphasis on Alaskas Native peoples, whose involvement in the states economic, political, and social life and development continues to this day. In contrast to the stereotype of Alaska as a place where rugged individualists triumph over a harsh environment, distinguished historian Stephen Haycox offers a less romantic, more complex history of Alaskas past and the similarities between Alaska and the American West.
