History

49 at Last! (350 pages) reads like a plot-line for a political thriller; author Dr. Claus-M. Naske reveals how the Alaska statehood movement struggled through most of the 20th Century, decade after decade, always blocked by powerful special interests. Finally, the unrelenting pro-statehood forces won support from President Dwight D. Eisenhower–a breakthrough for their cause–and forged a coalition in Congress that approved the Alaska Statehood Act in 1958.

Claus-M. Naske (1935–2014) was Professor of History at the University of Alaska. Long a resident of the state, he is the author of many works on Alaska history.
