The article is a review of Rob Harper's the West: Violence and State Building in the Ohio Valley. I point out that Harper's basic thesis, that Ohio Valley violence was directly related to the extent of state support rather than placing the blame on frontier Indian hating. Harper presents a well-researched narrative in defense of his thesis, especially as it concerns the Upper Ohio Valley, but he is less reliable on events during the Washington administration.
