Although the Interior Department is known today for managing natural resources and indigenous peoples in a domestic context, it has long facilitated US expansion. Founded in the mid-nineteenth century to oversee settler colonialism, the Interior Department faced obsolescence with the close of the frontier in the 1890s. As consequence, Interior leaders redirected a skillset of expansion toward natural resource management, increasingly targeting minerals indispensable to industrial society. Facing limits to domestic reserves, Interior sought mineral frontiers across the world--in overseas territories, Third World nations, the continental shelf, and even outer space. The environment became, for Interior and the nation, a means and logic of US intervention. Bridging the fields of US foreign relations history, environmental history, and political economy, The Global Interior ultimately argues that the Interior Department was a key mechanism for ensuring and obscuring an ongoing American project of global extraction.--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:description<\/a> \"The closing of the interior -- New jewels in the crown of American empire -- The treasure of the Western hemisphere -- Unearthing development -- The bounty of the seas -- Prospecting the final frontier -- The wealth of the wastelands.<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/5406217949<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Electronic books<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1020313451<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The global interior : mineral frontiers and American power<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1050321380<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com.catalogue.libraries.london.ac.uk\/lib\/ulondon\/detail.action?p=5502936<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/doi.org\/10.4159\/9780674989580<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/search.ebscohost.com\/login.aspx?direct=true&scope=site&db=nlebk&db=nlabk&AN=1880498<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/www.jstor.org\/stable\/10.2307\/j.ctvckq57s<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <http:\/\/www.vlebooks.com\/vleweb\/product\/openreader?id=none&isbn=9780674989603<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:url<\/a> <https:\/\/public.ebookcentral.proquest.com\/choice\/publicfullrecord.aspx?p=5502936<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780674989580<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1050321380<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
