Ohio and Its PeopleeBook - 2003
A finely crafted comprehensive history of the Buckeye State, whose dominant theme is the representative character of the Ohio story to the national experience. Knepper captures the panorama of the Ohio experience from its prehistoric and historic Indian populations to the present, explaining not only Ohio's political history, but also its cultural, social, intellectual, and economic life A work that readers not only from Ohio but from all regions on the country will find informative and useful.--Choice. When this book was first published, our reviewer, Steven Conkle, wrote, Knepper's book should be considered a necessary addition to the bookshelves of any writer, historian or lay reader who has even the most transient interest in Ohio history. His statement still stands.--Ohioana Quarterly. The Bicentennial Edition of Ohio and Its People is a revised and updated volume of this bestselling work and includes a new final chapter examining Ohio through the end of the twentieth century. Author George W. Knepper presents contemporary information on the national and state political arenas, the economy as it affects Ohio, the economic and environmental revival of Cleveland, and an updated bibliography. Ohio and Its People remains a wonderful classroom text and history of Ohio.
