The Heartland Download ì 7 Kristin L. Hoganson ç 7 Download review The Heartland In The Heartland Kristin L Hoganson drills deep into the center of the country only to find a global story in the resulting core sample Deftly navigating the disconnect between history and myth she tracks both the backstory of this region and the evolution of the idea of an unalloyed heart at the center of the land A provocative and highly original work of historical scholarship The Heartland speaks volumes about pressing preoccupations among them identity and community immigration and trade and security and global power And food To read it is to be inoculated against using the word heartland unironically ever again. This book oozed with the passion of her research And being from Michigan I really enjoyed reading it But her focus on using modern day PC presumptions distracted from her conclusions in many parts Focusing on the specific area of Champaign IL with it s excellent University surrounding areas and the peoples that made the human history of the place gave it a great focus and I did a lot of compare contrast with where I grew up in East Lansing MI with it s excellent Michigan State University and there are a plethora of both similarities and differences Her deconstruction of the myth of the Heartland was very similar to my own experience after being overseas for than a decade and coming back to the Midwest in 1990 I d heard the myth and always wondered Where did this BS come from She did a particularly good job of tracking the origin of the myth On the other hand she focuses on the Kickapoo Tribe and their relations with the US Military and I think she was off base in her description of both groups how they think and why they did what they did It irked me a bit that she overlooked the French influence in Illinois but they didn t establish any forts or trading posts in Champaign County so other than the name she judged them insignificant Pity that All in all a worthy read and I hope she sells many copies and people actually read it

The Heartland Download ì 7 Kristin L. Hoganson ç 7 Download review The Heartland Yth The deeper she dug into the making of the modern heartland the wider her story became as she realized that she'd uncovered an unheralded crossroads of people commerce and ideas But the really interesting thing Hoganson found was that over the course of American history even as the region's connections with the rest of the planet became increasingly dense and intricate the idea of the rural Midwest as a steadfast heartland became a stronger and stubbornly immovable myth In enshrining a symbolic heart the American people have repressed the kinds of stories that Hoganson tells of sweeping breadth and depth and soul. The Heartland is a brief snapshot of middle America focusing primarily on Illinois and the community of Champaign since the author works at the local university She begins by addressing all the nicknames for the Midwest including the flyover states a label I personally detest because it s denigrating The Midwest has much to offer and its citizens values are often scoffed at but midwesterners are hardy stable reliable and loyal Hoganson explores the Kickapoo history and the rich agrarian history of the region Overall it s a good overview to promote the value of the region I m not uite sure why the author felt the need to write it unless she believed it was necessary to substantiate that the Midwest Is valuable I am a proud native Midwestern who lives not too far from the primary region focused on in the book and I encourage all readers to explore the vast history and richness of the middle westThanks to NetGalley for the advance read

The Heartland Download ì 7 Kristin L. Hoganson ç 7 Download review The Heartland A history of a uintessentially American place the rural and small town heartland that uncovers deep yet hidden currents of connection with the worldWhen Kristin L Hoganson arrived in Champaign Illinois after teaching at Harvard studying at Yale and living in the DC metro area with various stints overseas she expected to find her new home well isolated Even provincial After all she had landed in the American heartland a place where the nation's identity exists in its pristine form Or so we have been taught to believe Struck by the gap between reputation and reality she determined to get to the bottom of history and m. I found this intriguing thought provoking and wide ranging exploration of what is actually meant by the term The American Heartland most interesting It seems to have divided reviewers between those who love it and those who hate it and many criticisms have been made about some of the author s contentions However whatever the rights and wrongs of her interpretations of history it s a great read Her main thesis is that contrary to popular opinion the heartland has never been insular and isolationist but has always looked outward and has always been eager to make global connections In fact the very existence of the heartland depended right from the start on international trade and commerce The book focuses on Champaign County Illinois which for the author is emblematic of the heartland and where she is a Professor of History at the University of Illinois I can t comment on the accuracy or otherwise of her claims but I found the book enlightening and it gave me a whole new perspective on the meaning of that perhaps overused term heartland
