Traditional accounts of Colorados history often reflect an Anglocentric perspective that begins with the 1859 Pikes Peak Gold Rush and Colorados establishment as a state in 1876. Enduring Legacies expands the study of Colorados past and present byMoreTraditional accounts of Colorados history often reflect an Anglocentric perspective that begins with the 1859 Pikes Peak Gold Rush and Colorados establishment as a state in 1876.

Enduring Legacies expands the study of Colorados past and present by adopting a borderlands perspective that emphasizes the multiplicity of peoples who have inhabited this region. Addressing the dearth of scholarship on the varied communities within Colorado-a zone in which collisions structured by forces of race, nation, class, gender, and sexuality inevitably lead to the transformation of cultures and the emergence of new identities-this volume is the first to bring together comparative scholarship on historical and contemporary issues that span groups from Chicanas and Chicanos to African Americans to Asian Americans.

This book will be relevant to students, academics, and general readers interested in Colorado history and ethnic studies.
