Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Richard Slotkin (1942-) is a cultural critic and historian. He is the Olin Professor of English and American Studies at Wesleyan University in Middletown, CT. His award-winning trilogy on the myth of the frontier in America, which comprises Regeneration Through Violence, The Fatal Environment, and Gunfighter Nation offers an original and highly provocative interpretation of the United States' national experience. " Lost Battalions," published in 2005, is a study of Black and immigrant soldiers in World War I, and the conflicts over their status as Americans. He has also published three historical novels: The Crater: A Novel of the Civil War, The Return of Henry Starr, and Abe: A Novel of the Young Lincoln. In his more than 25 years at Wesleyan, he has helped to establish both the American Studies and the Film Studies programs. He offers interdisciplinary courses in American literature, history and film. In 1995 he received the Mary C. Turpie Award of the American Studies Association for his contributions to teaching and program-building.
