The Nevada Review is a journal dedicated to Nevada: it aims to enhance understanding of the state as a geographical, social and political unit and a microcosm of the West in the broader historical and political development of the United States. Recognizing the distinctive geological, environmental, social and ethnographic characteristics of Nevada, the Review seeks contributions that examine these features and investigate how they have contributed to the shape of its political institutions, demographic profile and cultural mores. To this end, the Review encompasses studies from a broad range of disciplines and perspectives, including, but not limited to, history, political science, economics and literary criticism and also accepts literary contributions of short fiction that concern Nevada, its people and their way of life.
