Andrew Offenburger, assistant professor of history at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, discusses his book Frontiers in the Gilded Age: Adventure, Capitalism, and Dispossession from Southern Africa to the U.S.-Mexican Borderlands, 1880-1917. His book examines how the 19th-century U.S.-Mexican borderlands glittered with grandiose visions, exposed the flawed and immoral strategies of profiteers, and yet revealed the capacity for resistance and resilience that indigenous people summoned when threatened. The program is presented by the Huntington–USC Institute on California and the West. A book signing follows the program.
