Excerpt from Wisconsin Witness to Frederick Jackson Turner: A Collection of Essays on the Historian and the Thesis One of the earliest reviews of the global application of the Turner thesis was that of Carl Russell Fish, published in 1917 in the first volume of the Magazine of History. The Frontier, A World Problem still states the case effectively, and has piqued the imagination of scholars from the frontiers of Western Canada to Eastern Siberia. A systematic analysis of the frontier thesis and an apology for its utility was contributed by Schafer in 1933, shortly after Turner's death. Turner's Frontier Philosophy is perceptive and well written, stressing the role of the frontier in holding the diverging sections together as long as it did. A later contri burion by Schafer, Some Facts Bearing on the safety-valve Theory, will be remembered as the fuse which ignited a sharp exchange of opinion, which Turner himself would probably have tremendously enjoyed.
