Utah residents lead lives rich with family, industry, politics, and community. The 2002 Olympic Winter Games in Salt Lake City focused the eyes of the world on this unique place, highlighting our strong contributions to the fine arts, professional sports, literature, and music, along with our unparalled access to recreation and more. Thomas G. Alexander tells the whole story of the Beehive State in Utah, The Right Place, a Utah Statehood Centennial Project of the Utah State Historical Society. Originally published in 1995, this newly updated and revised edition is the comprehensive historical Utah experience. With current information on recent political and economic changes, including the changes brought on by the 2002 Olympic games, Dr. Alexander teaches and entertains through his historical writings.

Thomas G. Alexander holds the Lemuel Hardison Redd Jr. Chair as Professor of Western American History at Brigham Young University. Born and raised in Utah, this award-winning author has written articles for many journals and has published a number of books, including Grace and Grandeur: A History of Salt Lake City (2002).
