Abstract: Since the mid-nineteenth century cycles of boom and bust have characterized Oklahoma history. Howard Stein proposes that after a century or more of both the causes and the results of "boom and bust" have become ingrained in Oklahoman's attitudes and beliefs about themselves and about life. His research adds an anthropological layer of "metadata" to the now-standard story of the Sooner State.
