Religion in American History

Series Editors: Chris Beneke, Bentley University, and Christopher S. Grenda, Bronx Community College, CUNY

No mere artifact of the past, religion remains a defining feature of U.S. culture, inspiring both reform and reaction, unwavering devotion and righteous indignation. Its distinctive American contours have evolved over centuries of interaction between an expanding multitude of faiths. This series will publish rigorous and engaging work on U.S. religious experience with particular emphasis on its historical roots. It will consider episodes of conflict, patterns of cooperation, and the evolving relationship between religion, politics, and other social institutions. The ebb and flow of tolerance and intolerance, the twentieth-century surge in religiosity, the more recent rise of the “nones” (the religiously unaffiliated), and the intersections of secular and sacred will be important themes. Monographs and edited volumes will be welcome and tailored for appeal to a broad scholarly audience.

Sport, Identity, and Culture Series editor: Gerald R. Gems, North Central College

The Sport, Identity, and Culture series addresses the important role sport plays in social, cultural, and political contexts throughout history. While the series is primarily historical in its focus, it welcomes interdisciplinary projects. It is intentionally broad in its conceptualization, as sport—its organization, practice, and meanings—exists both within and beyond the territorial, cultural, social, ethnic, racial, gender, psychological, and chronological borders that construct and define individual and group identity. The series seeks monographs and edited volumes directed at scholars and students, though some appeal to the general public is also welcome.

Byzantium: A European Empire and Its Legacy Series Editor: Vlada Stanković, University of Belgrade

The series explores the rich and complex history, culture, and legacy of the longest lasting European state, its place in the Middle Ages, and in European civilization. Through positioning Byzantine history in a wider medieval context, the series will include new perspectives on the place of the eastern Mediterranean; Central, Eastern, and South Europe; and the Near East in the medieval period. The intention is not simply to place the Byzantine Empire in the Western sphere, but rather to call for a reorientation away from the traditional East-West divide and to bring Byzantium out of its isolation from the rest of the medieval world. Byzantium: A European Empire and Its Legacy seeks both monographs and edited collections that bring Byzantine studies into conversation with scholarship on the Western medieval world, as well as other works on the place of the Byzantine Empire in the global Middle Ages.

Empires and Entanglements in the Early Modern World Series Editors: Charles Parker, Saint Louis University, and Ulrike Strasser, University of California, San Diego

An extraordinary pattern of state and empire building across Eurasia and the Atlantic basin in the early modern period inaugurated a new era in world history characterized by ongoing cross-cultural engagement among peoples from around the globe. The monographs and edited collections published in the Empires and Entanglements in the Early Modern World series will pursue particular historical themes that illuminate these interactive dimensions in the early modern world. These studies either take a comparative approach to commensurate historical developments in various parts of the world or examine trans-regional patterns and forces that brought together different societies and communities. This series seeks to go beyond essentialist approaches that treat regions and oceans as self-contained, insular cultural spaces to stress interconnectedness in a paramount age of imperial expansion. We therefore welcome proposals and manuscripts on cultural, religious, intellectual, and environmental themes that show connections and conjunctures across territories and oceans or undertake comparisons within particular regions and maritime basins.

AMERICAN HISTORY | Colonial and Nineteenth-Century History John Eliot and the Praying Indians of Massachusetts Bay

New

By Kathryn N. Gray, Plymouth University

Charleston, South Carolina, 1787–1797

Communities and Connections in Puritan New England

“Gray offers a fresh look at the cultural significance of John Eliot’s mission. Arguing that he was the hub of a transatlantic discourse melding millennial politics and shrewd promotion, Gray traces the many ‘reception communities’ in which Eliot was involved. Her use of private correspondence, missionary tracts, and Algonquian Bible readers’ marginalia provides a complex portrait of Eliot’s influence.” —Joseph Fichtelberg, Hofstra University

Fugitive Slave Advertisements in The City Gazette By Thomas Brown, Virginia Wesleyan College, and Leah Sims, independent scholar

“These advertisements from the Charleston Gazette tell rich stories about the humanity and inhumanity of human bondage in one of the most important cities in American during the 1790s, providing unmatched information about the lives of slaves and the economic, social, cultural, and political institutions which they resisted. It is a great addition to the documentary history on the South’s ‘peculiar institution’.” —Loren Schweninger, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

The First Great Awakening

Redefining Religion in British America, 1725–1775

New in Paperback

Escaping Servitude

By John Howard Smith, Texas A&M University, Commerce

“Smith rejects the argument that this important event in US intellectual and religious history was nothing more than the invention of the preachers of the Second Great Awakening. The genesis of the Awakening, he argues, flows from German Pietism, Scots-Irish Presbyterianism, and Puritanism. Smith provides ample coverage of the major figures of the First Great Awakening, as well as the anti-revivalist opposition…. Recommended” —CHOICE

A Documentary History of Runaway Servants in Eighteenth-Century Virginia By Antonio T. Bly and Tamia Haygood, both Appalachian State University

“This study provides a rich source of primary documents in the form of chronologically arranged transcriptions of all notices of runaway servants appearing in the Virginia Gazette and other newspapers over more than six decades. The work presents a unique perspective on an era of American history when men and women who were either indentured, apprentices in servitude, or convicts managed to escape their plight….

James Madison, the South, and the Trans-Appalachian West, 1783–1803

New

Legal Science in the Early Republic

By Jeffrey Allen Zemler, independent scholar

“Zemler makes an interesting and important argument. From 1780 to 1800, ‘far-sighted’ southern leaders–of whom the Virginian James Madison was a leading example–worked to create political and cultural bonds between the established southern states of the Atlantic seaboard and the emergent states of the transAppalachian West…. This well-researched, closely argued book will be read with profit by students of the early Republic and Old South. Recommended.” —CHOICE

The American Revolution, State Sovereignty, and the American Constitutional Settlement, 1765–1800

The First U.S. History Textbooks

Constructing and Disseminating the American Tale in the Nineteenth Century By Barry Joyce, University of Delaware

By Aaron N. Coleman, University of the Cumberlands

“Joyce traces the construction of the creation myth that celebrates US exceptionalism in the textbooks in the 19th century. Textbooks tried to unite the citizenry with consistent stories of providential events and near-divine heroes. A remarkable consensus—even plagiarism—marked these popular works until the overt sectional divisiveness of the 1850s…. In the 21st century, the story has fragmented, but even teachers who delight in exposing myths will recognize the ways they keep alive the characters of those first textbooks. Recommended.” —CHOICE

“Properly understanding the American constitutional founding is both vital and difficult. Professor Coleman has mastered the large and complex literature of the subject and given us a refreshing new perspective. It turns out that, after all, the role of the States was more important than we have been led to believe.” —Clyde N.

Pennsylvania Histories

Cities upon the Hills

Two Hundred Years of Personalities and Events, 1750–1950

By Chaim M. Rosenberg, independent scholar

By Sheldon Spear, independent scholar

This book offers a eclectic approach to Pennsylvania’s rich history. Combining original research with syntheses of work by other historians, Spear presents a range of significant individuals, groups, and events likely less familiar to audiences interested in the history of Pennsylvania. Although the book concentrates on Pennsylvania, the subject matter is also germane to wider issues in the areas of economics, race and ethnicity, religion, and gender studies.

New England Society Book Award (History & Biography Category) “Americans have been on the move throughout their history. In this book we learn how the people of New England moved into the far reaches of the North American continent, shaping its politics and institutions. Full of colorful characters, this book is a fascinating perspective on three hundred years of history.” —Sven Beckert, Harvard University 2016 • 346 pages 978-1-4985-1983-0 • $100.00 / £70.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1984-7 • $99.99 / £70.00 • eBook

The Representation of the Struggling Artist in America, 1800–1865 By Erika Schneider, Framingham State University

“Schneider’s important study fills a gap in American art history scholarship by focusing on a period, the early to mid-nineteenth century, and works of art under addressed in published literature on images of artists. Its greatest strength is the balance of visual and literary perceptions of artists, which enables a richer assessment of artist imagery of this time than has been attempted before.” —Elisabeth L. Roark, Chatham University

“Piott provides short essays about 19thcentury reformers that focus on their careers as social critics.… Piott selected them because they have become underappreciated as reformers or mostly forgotten as such… Piott explains that ‘romantic’ reformers were the norm during the early 19th century, but by mid-century, reformers emerged who were ‘realists.’ What is revealing is that there was a lack of sustained cooperation between likeminded reformers.… Recommended.” —CHOICE 2016 • 254 pages 978-1-4985-0570-3 • $44.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-9248-1 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7391-9249-8 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

Union and Confederate Propaganda in Britain, 1860–65

From Thug to Grant’s Inner Circle

Persuading John Bull

John McDonald and the Whiskey Ring

By Thomas E. Sebrell II, University of Westminster

By Edward S. Cooper, independent scholar

“His research is sound and the conclusions he draws…are persuasive.” —America’s Civil War “Persuading John Bull offers a detailed, clear, and thoughtful examination of an intriguing episode in northern and southern propaganda efforts in Britain. Particularly in its coverage of The London American and The Index, it enriches our understanding of Anglo-American relations, broadly construed, during the Civil War.” —David Prior, Indiana University

Supervisor of Internal Revenue John McDonald defrauded the federal government of millions of dollars. McDonald organized and ran the Whiskey Ring but he always credited Grant with the initiation of the Ring declaring that the president “actually stood god-father at its christening.” The demise of the Ring rivals anything that the real or fictional Elliot Ness and his “Untouchables” ever accomplished during the prohibition era in America.

Samuel F. B. Morse and the Dawn of the Age of Electricity

This Will Make a Man of Me

The Life and Letters of a Teenage Officer in the Civil War

By George F. Botjer, emeritus, University of Tampa

By James M. Scythes, West Chester University

“Botjer has written a compact, accessible work that makes the strong argument that the humble telegraph had great social, political, and economic impact and parented a wide range of telecommunication and military innovations up to the 21st century. It is also the first book to delve into previously unpublished, primary archival sources to uncover Morse the man, why he was the one to invent the telegraph, and how his invention impacted him as a human being…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

Featuring sixty-five letters that Thomas Howell wrote home, this book describes soldier life in the Army of the Potomac during the spring and summer of 1862. While his life was cut short in his very first combat experience, Scythes traces Howell’s perception of the Civil War as a vehicle to transition into manhood and to prove his masculinity.

Reed examines the 1865 military commission trial of eight alleged accomplices of John Wilkes Booth. He analyzes the trial transcript and other evidence relating to their guilt, as well as a careful application of basic constitutional law principles to the jurisdiction of the military commission and the fundamental fairness of the trial. “Exhaustively researched, and enhanced with a bibliography and an index, a studious and welcome contribution to judicial studies shelves.”—Midwest Book Review Fairleigh Dickinson University Press 2016 • 246 pages 978-1-61147-827-3 • $75.00 / £49.95 • Hardback 978-1-61147-828-0 • $74.99 / £49.95 • eBook

The Woman War Correspondent, the U.S. Military, and the Press

Singing, Soldiering, and Sheet Music in America during the First World War

By Carolyn M. Edy, Appalachian State University

“This is a richly nuanced study of music in the First World War. The book examines the role and function of sheet music during wartime and the social and cultural impacts the consumption, performance and politics of these songs had on those that wrote, performed and distributed them. An absorbing read.” —Paul Watt, Monash University

“Edy has broadened and deepened our understanding of women war correspondents. In so doing, she has expanded our appreciation of the scope and quality of their work and has corrected the many incomplete or incorrect conclusions of those who wrote the first drafts of history. These women served, and served well, their country and their profession, and it is good to have them restored to their proper place in history.” —Michael S. Sweeney, Ohio University

Sport and the American Occupation of the Philippines Bats, Balls, and Bayonets

The Ku Klux Klan in Western Pennsylvania, 1921–1928 By John Craig, Slippery Rock University

By Gerald R. Gems, North Central College

“Craig provides an in-depth analysis of the rise and fall of the 1920s Ku Klux Klan in western Pennsylvania. Supported by an exhaustive list of sources, the author persuasively shows that the Klan was extremely active in the area. Relying heavily on newspaper accounts and trial records, he explains that the Klan’s early emphasis on almost theatrical gestures… allowed it to rapidly attract members, especially a surprisingly high percentage of young men…. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“Gerald R. Gems is one of the most ardent researchers and productive scholars in sport history. In this study he examines the negative impact of the half century of American control of the Philippines. Gems focuses on how sport—a presumably uplifting institution— negatively influenced local life, promoting racism and sexism in such areas as politics, education, economics, and gender relations.” —Steven A.

Theodore Roosevelt and China, 1901–1909

The Willows Airmen

“Moore unravels the complicated legacy of the history and evolution of the US Open Door Policy in China, 1901-9. Making extensive use of archival sources and noting how broader global events and challenges at home helped influence and shape US foreign policy objectives in Asia, Moore argues that Theodore Roosevelt’s administration pursued reactive rather than proactive foreign policy objectives in Asia.… Moore concludes that the Roosevelt administration, though pragmatic, dealt with China from a limited, stereotyped point of view that failed to perceive the revolutionary forces and sentiments that were surfacing there.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Experiences of Japanese American Women during and after World War II

The Brave Men of Company A The Forty-First Ohio Volunteer Infantry By Edward S. Cooper, independent scholar

Living in Internment Camps and Rebuilding Life Afterwards

In August 1861, one hundred volunteers met at Camp Wood and formed Company A. These men left us a series of letters to families and friends, diaries, official reports, and talks. Their correspondence does not simply record the temperature and what they had to eat. The story the correspondence tells allows the reader to know what it was really like to be a volunteer soldier.

By Precious Yamaguchi, Southern Oregon University

Yamaguchi examines the experiences of Japanese American women who were in internment camps, and follows these women after they were released, showing how they tried to rebuild their lives. Using evidence from primary sources and seven years of interviews with sixteen women, Yamaguchi provides a feminist, intergenerational, and historical study of how unequal the justice system has been. 2016 • 116 pages 978-1-4985-0863-6 • $39.99 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-9242-9 • $79.00 / £52.95 • Hardback (2015) 978-0-7391-9243-6 • $39.99 / £24.95 • eBook

As images of the Nazis’ atrocities became part of American cultural awareness, the evil of their old enemy became increasingly important. As America tried to describe the danger represented by the spread of Communism, it fell back on descriptions of Nazism to make the threat plain through comparison. This book addresses this tension in regards to McCarthyism, campaigns to educate the public about Communism, attempts to raise support for wars in Asia, and the rhetoric of civil rights. 2016 • 244 pages 978-1-4985-3290-7 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3291-4 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

“In a short but poignant exposé of US Christian support for the Israeli state, Crouse adds to the literature of the nexus of religion and politics, especially US foreign policy. Beginning with an excellent explication of the variant perspectives, he collapses the scholarship focusing on conservative Christians’ ‘individualistic approach to... social involvement.’ In so doing, he adds to the argument of interest group engagement in the foreign policy process.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“This is by far one of the best revisionist works on the Eisenhower presidency published in recent years. Shanahan’s thoroughly researched book not only offers a new lens on Ike’s understudied and often underplayed space policy, but also makes a significant contribution towards our understanding of the executive office in the 1950s, its powers, and its relations with Congress. A must read for all historians and students of the modern presidency.” —Mara Oliva, University of Reading

American Women on the Move

The Inside Story of the National Women’s Conference, 1977

By Cadra Peterson McDaniel, Henderson State University

By Shelah Gilbert Leader and Patricia Rusch Hyatt, independent scholars

“This book is well worth the attention of anyone interested in the Cold War or in the value of cultural exchanges, then, now, and in the future.... McDaniel’s work will awaken those scholars who concentrate on military and political confrontations, such as those concerning Russian activity in Ukraine, to the importance of the calming and rewarding aspects of cultural interactions.” —The Russian Review

“It’s impossible to ignore the most democratically-elected, representative by race and class national body this country has ever seen—unless it was composed of women. Then, unlike a meeting of our allwhite Founding Fathers, it can be ignored. That’s why I’m so grateful to Shelah Leader and Patricia Hyatt for American Women on the Move. From now on, no understanding of this country or the global women’s movement can be complete without it.” —Gloria Steinem

“A series of political and cultural changes reshaped U.S. policies toward post-World War II immigrants from formerly Eastern European countries who had collaborated in Nazi war crimes. Christoph Schiessl’s well-researched and penetrating work illuminates the influences leading to these changes and their consequences, both for individual perpetrators of mass atrocities and for the efforts of human rights advocates to eradicate long-standing expectations of impunity.” —Brad R.

Redding addresses the ways in which modern American thinkers have intervened in the public sphere and attempted to mediate relations between social and political institutions and cultural and intellectual production. Chapters consider how these figures have addressed a range of problems, including the dangers and difficulty of critical dissent during wartime, the crisis of the humanities under neoliberalism, the legacy of American antiintellectualism, academic professionalism, and the perils of consumer culture and popular tastes. 2016 • 170 pages 978-1-4985-1266-4 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1267-1 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

Black Agency and People of Good Will

Toward Victory at Home and Abroad

The American Civil Rights Movement 1865–1950 By Russell Brooker, Alverno College

The African American Press in World War II By Paul Alkebulan, emeritus, Virginia State University

“A solid synthesis. Brooker has produced a clearly written and useful narrative about racial politics in the under-appreciated years before the ‘modern’ civil rights movement. The book raises important questions about when and by whom changes were made in the American projects of white supremacy and racial equality.” —Eric S. Yellin, University of Richmond

CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title “Alkebulan traces the history of the black press and its role in both world wars. He also offers a superb synopsis of the contributions of blacks in WWII, from Dorie Miller, to the Tuskegee Airmen, to Ernest Wilkins, to black nurses. African Americans sought a double victory against fascism overseas and racism at home, even while fighting in a segregated military.… Outstanding. Essential.” —CHOICE

Black Muslims and the Law

Civil Liberties from Elijah Muhammad to Muhammad Ali By Malachi D. Crawford, University of Houston

“Crawford carefully traces the legal stratagem of the Lost-Found Nation of Islam (NOI) regarding civil liberties and religious freedom to the early 1970s. Founded in 1930, NOI initially little emphasized civil rights or civil liberties. That changed following purported persecution at its Detroit temples, government raids, and arrests for draft evasion during WW II.... This is a concise, intelligent exploration of too-little-known facets of US cultural and legal history.… Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

This is the third that has been regarded as disposable along with the ground where it is buried and in the newspapers printed to be discarded.” —Mark P. Leone, University of Maryland, College Park

“One institution hardly ever comes to mind when talk turns to institutional racism: our tax system. Most of us simply do not think about racism when we think about taxes. Andre Smith does.” —Too Much

By Alan H. Levy, Slippery Rock University

“Well researched and carefully written, this is a perfect text for students in history, political science, women’s studies, gender studies, and American studies, with rich sources to mine and ideas to confirm and challenge. The lively readability makes it a book to enjoy, particularly in the current contentious political climate. Politicians in the 1970s and 1980s also played hardball, and as Levy’s work confirms, Abzug played that way too.” —Journal of American History

Saros, Valparaiso University

“This richly detailed account enhances our understandings of early twentieth-century Americans’ beliefs about prostitution and moral reform.” —David Ruth, Penn State, Abington “Adams casts a much-needed critical light on urban reformers in early twentieth-century Philadelphia. He demonstrates that reformers actually did very little to reform one of the most recognizable figures of urban vice—the prostitute. Instead, they used sensational cultural discourses on prostitution to serve other agendas.” —Jill Suzanne Smith, Bowdoin College 2015 • 212 pages 978-1-4985-0868-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0869-8 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

“Moke argues that Earl Warren was one of the central political figures of his time…. Moke makes a contribution, showing how the attorney general who supported the Japanese exclusion of 1942 developed into the author of Brown v. Board of Education in 1954 and how the prosecutor who carelessly disregarded the rights of accused persons in the 1930s grew into the defender of the Miranda warning. But in 1964, Moke notes, Warren failed to ‘speak truth to power’ as the chairman of the Warren Commission…. Recommended.”—CHOICE

Defender of Rights in Criminal Justice

“One of our foremost scholars has produced an important, path-breaking work on one of the least studied of recent Supreme Court justices. During his more than thirty years on the Supreme Court, Justice Stevens wrote important opinions dealing with virtually every aspect of the criminal justice system, including the death penalty, prisoners’ rights, search and seizure, and the right to counsel. This book provides a comprehensive, yet clear and well-documented analysis of Justice Stevens’ approach to constitutional rights in criminal justice.” —Craig Hemmens, Washington State University

A Legislative History of the Taiwan Relations Act Bridging the Strait

Gold traces President Carter’s extended diplomatic recognition to the People’s Republic of China, upending longstanding U.S. foreign policy in Asia. He presented Congress with legislation to allow other ties with Taiwan to continue unofficially. Many in Congress took issue with the President, and they held extensive hearings and lengthy debates, substantially strengthening the bill. Passage of the Taiwan Relations Act stabilized America’s position in Asia and its situation with Taipei, while allowing the new China to be properly launched.

“Taylor makes good use of the many autobiographical materials Pearson produced during his long life…. Taylor’s biography effectively captures details of rural life and places Pearson and his work into the trajectory of one hundred years of history. The book is a valuable historical account of a ‘printer and poet’ during a century of change.”—North Carolina Historical Review

By Adam J. Powell, Lenoir-Rhyne University

“At first glance, second-century bishop Irenaeus of Lyon and Joseph Smith...don’t seem to have much in common.... However, as Dr. Powell shows in his fascinating study, they and their communities shared a great deal.”—New Books Network “Powell does an admirable job of articulating many striking similarities surrounding the formation of early Christianity, as represented by Irenaeus, and the formation of early Mormonism. Those similarities are compelling, and well-worth examining.” —AML’s Dawning of a Brighter Day

“Cox brings together the literary and visual cultures of nineteenth-century travel beautifully in this study of John L. Stoddard. Her examination of power and photography in relation to Stoddard’s travels makes an important contribution to such diverse fields as visual culture, American studies, transnational studies, and cultural and political history. The emphasis on self-portraiture in Stoddard’s work is especially timely and topical.” —Brian Yothers, University of Texas, El Paso

American Unitarianism and the Protestant Dilemma The Conundrum of Biblical Authority

New in Paperback

By Lydia Willsky-Ciollo, Fairfield University

“American Unitarianism and the Protestant Dilemma is a well detailed and deftly argued work. Willsky-Ciollo is convincing in her declaration that Unitarians were equally consumed by some of the same developments as other Protestant faiths, and in her explanation as to how the final break with the issue was made in the post-Civil War era, despite lasting internal divisions and persistent deviation from the mainstream…. This is a significant work that adds much to the growing body of work on Unitarianism.” —New England Quarterly

Herbert Hoover and the Commodification of Middle-Class America An American Promise

“The American college and university have never been more essential to the health of the nation and at the same time, more under threat. In a series of interlocking essays exploiting the insights of wise elders, Nelson depicts a varied, ever-evolving academic ‘marketplace’ serving disparate needs and interests. His defense of the university’s fundamental imperatives—open inquiry and service—is more pertinent today than ever.” —Michael Birkner, Gettysburg College

By Edward Gale Agran, Wilmington College

“Edward Agran has imaginatively and intriguingly rethought a figure that still remains easier to condemn than to understand. In this fluidly written work, Herbert Hoover both comes alive and fits into a larger cultural and political context. In the process, readers also get a wonderful opportunity to rethink the meaning of that most peculiar creature, the American Middle Class.” —Robert D. Johnston, University of Illinois, Chicago

By exploring the ongoing interplay between White’s relentless agency and the ever-present strictures on gender throughout her long life, Morice offers a portrait as much about this uniquely powerful woman as about the social and cultural complexities of her time.” —Jackie M.

“One might ask why we need yet another book on street gangs….. What makes Howell’s book decidedly different is that he does not offer mere lip service to history, but devotes the whole of his book to following the course of gangs and gang formation in the US and beyond…. Howell is one of the leading specialists on gangs in the US today, and keeps an eye on transnational trends…. Essential” —CHOICE

Discourses of Race, Nation, and Child Welfare in America

The War on Poverty

“Bullard’s most interesting contribution is her linkage of race, children, and social welfare… with compelling sources and a clearer narrative. Bullard brings together the threads of race, nation, and childhood to demonstrate that the Children’s Bureau helped to ‘establish a nominal social citizenship’ for white American children. Here Bullard clearly shows the role of social science in building racial distinctions into the mechanisms of the modern state…. Bullard’s evenhanded insights enrich our understanding of social reform, particularly reformers’ motivations.” — Journal Of The History Of Childhood And Youth

Impassioned Jurisprudence Law, Literature, and Emotion, 1760–1848 Edited by Nancy E. Johnson, SUNY, New Paltz

A Microhistory of Nailsworth and Hinterland, 1695–1837

In this volume of essays, scholars of the interdisciplinary field of law and literature write about the role of emotion in English law and legal theory in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. Examining both legal and literary texts, the contributors consider the emotion that infuses the law and find that feeling, sentiment and passion are integral to juridical thought as well as to specific legislation.

“Griffin offers a fresh look at the career of Oliver Goldsmith. Departing from the view that Goldsmith’s dabbling in varied themes and genres renders his canon a ‘sentimental foil to Swift,’ Griffin presents Goldsmith as representing complex political strands rooted in his Irish sympathies. This critical stance allows readers to appreciate the tensions between Enlightenment contexts and Jacobite politics…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

The Man and His Prescriptions for the Moral Life

Part biography and part philosophical inquiry, this book is a fresh, original interpretation of the intellectual world of the largely forgotten, eighteenth-century professor, Adam Ferguson. Although less well-known today than his famous Scottish contemporaries, Adam Smith and David Hume, Ferguson was considered their equal in the 18th century. The book shows how Ferguson developed a distinctive, cross-cultural approach to moral philosophy that is relevant for doing comparative ethics in today’s global village.

Shapely Bodies

Provincial Patriot of the French Revolution

By Christine A. Jones, University of Utah

By Bette W. Oliver, independent scholar

François Buzot, 1760–1794

The Image of Porcelain in Eighteenth-Century France

“Oliver chronicles the major events of the French Revolution, into which she inserts the life and political career of Normand lawyer Buzot. As her narrative progresses, the emphasis is placed increasingly on Buzot himself. She provides an excellent perspective to show that what occurred in France between 1789 and 1794 took many unexpected and dramatic turns and that the lives of ‘ordinary’ people like Buzot were violently impacted in unforeseeable ways.” —French Review

Jones constructs a cultural history of porcelain-making in France. Her title arises from two types of “bodies” treated in this study: the craft of porcelain, making shaped clods of earth into a clay body for high-end commodities, and the French elite shaping human bodies into social subjects with the help of makeup and accessories.

In Search of Better Worlds

The Enlightened and Depraved

Jacques Pierre Brissot in America and France, 1788–1793 By Bette W. Oliver, independent scholar

The image of the debauched French aristocrat of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries is one that still has power over the international public imagination, from the unending fascination with the Marquis de Sade to the successes of the film Ridicule. Drawing on memoirs, letters, popular songs and pamphlets, and political treatises, Denton traces the origins of this powerful stereotype from between the reign of Louis XIV and the Terror of the French Revolution.

“This lively narrative not only provides a political biography of an important French revolutionary leader, but also explores the intellectual, political, and personal links between the French and American Revolutions. Bette W. Oliver argues that Jacques Pierre Brissot associated key democratic ideals with the United States and that these ideals shaped his career as a revolutionary journalist and politician.” —William S.

“Shall the Papists Prevail?”

“Provocative and fresh, this wide-ranging study offers a unique perspective on the anxieties and pressures of an increasingly commercial 19th-century French culture. Juxtaposing memoirs, moral codes, specialized dictionaries, and a children’s novel with more conventional newspapers, literary texts, and theories, Peters explores a weary and suspicious century caught up in the throes of exchange and reinvention.… Highly recommended.”—CHOICE

“There is, as yet, little scholarly work on Spain’s small protestant minority, and this first full-length study of British missionaries is therefore to be welcomed.... The book provides many insights.... One of the most attractive, if unconventional, features of the book is a sense of dialogue between the author and his sources, which reflects his insider position.

“Charles E. McClelland has, for the first time, exhaustively analyzed the heyday of Berlin’s Friedrich Wilhelm University (1860 ­– 1914) and made the causes of its rise to world leadership both comprehensible to an English-speaking audience and relevant to its emulators abroad, especially in America. This book not only sheds new light on the history of science and social history, but embeds both in the political context in which professors and students acted.” —Elmar Tenorth, Humboldt University of Berlin

By Carsten Schapkow, University of Oklahoma Translated by Corey Twitchell

“Carsten Schapkow’s Role Model and Countermodel is the first encompassing monograph on the Ashkenazi reception of Sephardic History in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Germany. The book is not only an important contribution to a better understanding of German Jewry, but also a vivid example of the much-too-oftenneglected study of entanglements between Sephardic and Ashkenazi histories.” —Sina Rauschenbach, University of Potsdam

Artistic Response in the Context of War, 1914-1918

Filippo Tommaso Marinetti

Great War Modernism

By Ernest Ialongo, Hostos Community College, CUNY

Edited by Nanette Norris, Royal Military College Saint-Jean

“Ernest Ialongo addresses a fundamental question: how did the creator of a transformative art movement in the early twentieth-century become a leading figure in the Italian Fascist Regime? In a carefully orchestrated argument, Ialongo masterfully addresses this question by considering the full complexity of Marinetti’s ideological formation.” —Mark Antliff, Duke University

This volume explores the position of the so-called ‘core’ of literary modernism in its seminal engagement with the Great War. The essays offer new insight into canonical British/American/European modernism of the period using the critical tools of contemporary studies. By focusing on war, and on the experience of the soldier, and of those dealing with issues of war and survival, the studies link the unique forms of expression found in modernism with the traumatic experience of the time.

Italian Women at War

New in Paperback

Sisters in Arms from the Unification to the Twentieth Century Edited by Susan Amatangelo, College of the Holy Cross

Amatangelo offers diverse perspectives on Italian women’s participation in war and conflict throughout Italy’s modern history. She focuses on heroines who fought for Italy’s Unification and on the anti-heroines, or brigantesse, who opposed such a momentous change. She also considers exceptional individuals, such as Eva Kühn Amendola, who combatted both with her body and her pen, as well as collective female efforts during the world wars, whether military or civilian.

Antisemitism in the German Military Community and the Jewish Response, 1914–1938 By Brian E. Crim, Lynchburg College

“Belying anti-Semitic stereotypes of Jews shirking military service, German Jewish soldiers died on the battlefields of WWI alongside their gentile comrades, and almost half of the German Jewish soldiers were decorated for bravery.… Crim unfolds a rather nuanced picture. He examines antiSemitic attitudes and politics in the German Army before, during, and after WW I…. Recommended.” —CHOICE

A Philosophical Analysis of Serotherapy in France 1894-1900

A Comnaz Analysis

Diphtheria Serum as a Technological Object By Jonathan Simon, Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1

“The essays explore the thorny issues arising in comparative studies of Soviet Communism and German National Socialism. They steer a refreshingly independent course that deftly avoids the usual pitfalls, where in the West scholars tend to privilege Hitler and the Holocaust, while most accounts from Eastern Europe highlight the evils of Stalinism. The book’s micro-studies are uniformly excellent, up-to-date, and highly stimulating.” —Robert Gellately, Florida State University

Simon considers the production and use of the diptheria serum in France, analyzing it as a technological object. He draws on the philosophy of technology, exploring its application to medical drugs and suggesting how such an analysis can contribute to this domain of philosophy. Starting with the manufacture of the serum from horses’ blood, Simon then considers the processes involved in transforming the blood serum into a legal medical drug.

Sexual Myths of Modernity Sadism, Masochism, and Historical Teleology

New in Paperback

By Alison M. Moore, Western Sydney University

Hitler and Abductive Logic

“Moore traces the origins of sadism and masochism back to a rich cultural discourse about sexuality that Krafft-Ebing condensed and transformed. She demonstrates with lucidity and depth that so-called perversion has and continues to stand in for the perceived decadence of modern culture in a variety of Left- and Right-wing responses to sadomasochism, manifested most often in discussions about the Marquis de Sade. Her work addresses Freud, Horkheimer and Adorno, Gilles Deleuze and others with great agility.” —Carolyn J. Dean, Yale University

The Strategy of a Tyrant

By Ben Novak, independent scholar

“Hitler and Abductive Logic is thoughtprovoking and extremely creative, exploring aspects and influences of Hitler’s formative years that other biographers and historians have not examined to the same degree of detail. The application of the logic of abduction to Hitler’s mental development is fascinating, and clearly no other author has tried to apply Peirce’s description to Hitler in such a way.” —Beth A.

Staging France between the World Wars

Performance, Politics, and the Transformation of the Theatrical Canon By Susan McCready, University of South Alabama

“This is first-rate scholarship on the history of theater and performance that brings us to a new understanding of the French stage— and its radical transformation—during the interwar years (1918-1940). McCready argues convincingly that the period’s modernist directors revolutionized theatrical production, transformed the metteur-en-scène into an artiste in his own right, and re-envisioned the French dramatic canon.” —Michael Garval, North Carolina State University

The Vichy Past in France Today

Memory in Memoir and Fiction

By Richard J. Golsan, Texas A&M University

Third-Generation Holocaust Narratives

Corruptions of Memory

Edited by Victoria Aarons, Trinity University

“Americans, still haunted by their Civil War of a century and a half ago, should not be surprised that the French bear an even fresher wound from the defeat of 1940 and their conflicting responses to German occupation. Golsan’s books have been wise guides to the unending replay of these pains in French politics and culture, and this carries his work forward into the twenty-first century with his customary thoughtful care.” —Robert O. Paxton, Columbia University

“In this important, visionary new book on third-generation Holocaust narratives, Victoria Aarons assembles a sturdy architectonic of memory’s afterimage. Through a ‘visible bridge’—the continued outpouring of exceptionally well-written and international memoirs and fiction on the Holocaust—the essays affirm that memory is a structure that leaves third-generation survivors, and those coming later, with no alibi against witnessing. Aarons reminds us that while some of us witness, all of us are companions on a (still) unfinished search.” —Holli Levitsky, Loyola Marymount University 2016 • 234 pages 978-1-4985-1716-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1717-1 • $89.99 / £60.00 • eBook

Improvising the Nation

“A timely rethinking of gender and ritual in relation to recent approaches to memory, cognition, and ‘the past in the present.’ Linstroth delves beneath the calm surface of everyday life to reveal some of the key tensions expressed in competing views of gender and historical memory. This study will resonate well beyond its ethnographic context.” —David E. Sutton, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale

“Jazz and Postwar French Identity underscores the remarkable historical interconnections that exist between the United States and France, the multiple ways in which cross-cultural pollination occurred, how transnational relationships were formed, and ultimately how the complex process of disentangling these networks stands to have lasting implications for contemporary conversations on culture, identity, globalization, and of course racialization.” —Dominic Thomas, UCLA

The Contours of Eurocentrism Race, History, and Political Texts

By Marta Araújo and Silvia Rodríguez Maeso, both University of Coimbra

“Araújo and Maeso offer a unique critical lens on Eurocentrism. Analyzing Portuguese school history books as ‘racial texts,’ they dissect the paradigmatic discursive assumptions of race and power in prevailing knowledge formation regarding Europe and is others, embedded ideas of European racial ascendancy and inferiorization, racially ascribed power, and dehumanization. Araújo and Maeso thus offer a timely and significant analysis of Eurocentrism in the spirit of race critical theory.” —David Theo Goldberg, University of California, Irvine

This work offers a new approach to the cultural history of contemporary Spain, examining the ways in which Spain’s own self-conceptions are changing and multiplying in response to migrants from Latin America and Africa. This book examines the origins of media discourses on immigration and takes the analysis of contemporary Spanish culture as its primary framework, while also drawing insights from sociology and history.

As Ulf Brunnbauer explores the transatlantic vectors of immigration and return, he reveals a South Slavic encounter between tradition and modernity that occurred on two continents and transformed communities at both ends of the odyssey. Brunnbauer challenges our understanding of the modern history of Yugoslavia and richly complicates our appreciation of the history of American immigration.” —Larry Wolff, New York University

Dynamic Détente

The United States and Europe, 1964–1975 By Stephan Kieninger, Federal German Archives

Edited by Mark Kramer, Harvard University, and Vit Smetana, Charles University, Prague

“Dynamic Détente offers a nuanced and original analysis of the origins, contradictions, and effects of superpower détente.” —Mario Del Pero, Sciences Po

“Provides impressive coverage of a wide variety of topics. The reader will find studies of great-power relations, accounts of machinations within the Soviet Bloc, old-fashioned foreign policy reviews, and big-picture essays, from many of the leading scholars in the field.”—The Russian Review

“This book is a tremendous achievement. On the basis of a multi-archival approach, Kieninger shows the importance of continuity in U.S. foreign policy from the 1960s to the 1970s. The East-West ‘bridge-builders’ in Washington, DC, skillfully managed to survive the change of administration from Johnson to Nixon. Kieninger also demonstrates persuasively that détente was in fact a progressive and dynamic policy that decisively contributed to bringing about the end of the Cold War. The book is well-written and full of insights, and convincingly reinterprets the prevalent narrative of the Cold War in the 1970s and 1980s.” —Klaus Larres, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill

“Contains excellent contributions by Laszlo Borhi on Hungary and Smetana on Czechoslovakia, both of which show that Sovietization was a top-down process, undertaken locally but with the pace and timing determined by Moscow’s wider strategic interests....

Based largely on documents from Belgrade archives, this is the first comprehensive English-language study analyzing Yugoslavia’s careful rapprochement with the West in the years following the Tito– Stalin break. The authors provide deep insight into the strategic thinking of Yugoslav leaders and the difficult choices faced in light of a potential Soviet military invasion, and they explain how Belgrade managed a successful policy of balancing between the blocs after Stalin’s death and the easing of tensions in East–West relations.” —Jeronim Perović, University of Zurich

“The authors effectively combine their vast knowledge of Sino-Soviet and Sino-American relations, and remind readers of the significant role played by China in the most important strategic realignments of the past sixty-five years.” —Austin Jersild, Old Dominion University “Nobody knows more about the SinoSoviet alliance than Shen and Xia. While their conclusions are controversial and will be much discussed, the book takes our knowledge of this crucial period in international affairs to a whole new level.” —Odd Arne Westad, Harvard University

The Vienna Summit and Its Importance in International History CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

“Yordanov’s book is undoubtedly the most significant piece of scholarly research produced on this subject in the last two decades. Drawing on formerly secret documents from the countries of the former Warsaw Pact and Africa, this meticulously researched book sheds a great deal of new light on the rise and decline of Soviet involvement in the Horn of Africa, a key Cold War battleground for the superpowers and their proxies. It is a groundbreaking study.” —Robert G. Patman, University of Otago 2016 • 328 pages 978-1-4985-2909-9 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-2910-5 • $94.99 / £65.00 • eBook

“This book represents a definitive study of the bilateral Vienna Summit meeting of Nikita Khrushchev and John F. Kennedy. The authors of the various articles are top scholars and, in the case of Ted Sorensen and Viktor Sukhodrev, participants in the summit. This valuable contribution to the Vienna Summit’s place in international history offers fresh assessments of Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Kremlin’s decision-making process. It shows, too, that the US had accepted the Soviet sphere of influence in Eastern Europe. The book is rich in documents and should be in every research library.

“Gimpel fills a significant gap in the study of modern Chinese cultural and intellectual history. Despite her status as China’s first female university professor and China’s first modern short story writer, Chen Hengzhe has never been the subject of sustained scholarly inquiry. This exhaustively researched monograph, which analyses in depth both Chen’s literary writings and her scholarly writings, has rectified this situation in a most convincing manner.” —Michel Hockx, SOAS, University of London

The Body and Military Masculinity in Late Qing and Early Republican China The Art of Governing Soldiers

By Nicolas Schillinger, Free University of Berlin

New

The Great Chinese Art Transfer How So Much of China’s Art Came to America By Michael St. Clair, emeritus, Emmanuel College

This book tells the story of how and why millions of Chinese works of art got exported to collectors and institutions in the West, in particular to the US. From 1860 into the early twentieth century, China’s internal chaos allowed imperial and private Chinese collections to be scattered, looted and sold.

“In this remarkable book, Schillinger expertly recounts how reformist political leaders at the late Qing and early Republic transition advocated the incorporation of Western methods to cultivate a new ideal of the ‘citizen-soldier.’ Schillinger’s impressive and meticulous scholarship about the formation of modern ideas of the Chinese soldier is compelling reading. The book sheds much light on military topics, and issues of masculinity, cultural contact and nation building.” —Kam Louie, University of Hong Kong

Crossing the Divide

Pal’s Dissenting Judgment at the Tokyo War Crimes Tribunal

Memory, Reconciliation, and Reunions in South Korea

Neonationalist Mythology in Postwar Japan By Nariaki Nakazato, emeritus, University of Tokyo

By Nan Kim, University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee

“Nakazato offers a much-awaited critical biography of Radhabinod Pal, a Bengali jurist who produced a controversial dissenting opinion at the International Military Tribunal for the Far East. Based on meticulous archival research and interviews involving Bengali, English, and Japanese languages, Nakazato sheds new light on Pal’s life and the troubling legacy of his dissentient judgment in the making of the rightist nationalist discourse in postwar Japan.” —Yuma Totani, University of Hawaii

“Nan Kim interrogates the political whys and hows involved in these heavily publicized moments with deep sensitivity to the painfully lived and physically embodied reality of division for these families. She raises the disturbing truth that many of these reunions have ‘unsettled’ the meaning of war death on both sides of the 38 parallel with family members long mourned as dead suddenly alive on the other side. Her message is profoundly disquieting; her prose is elegant and clear.” —Alexis Dudden, University of Connecticut

Creating Japan’s Ground Self-Defense Force, 1945–2015

By Stella Xu, Roanoke College

“This book provides a fascinating illustration of how history has been used and abused in attempts to frame national consciousness. Through the nuanced study of a wide spectrum of primary sources and secondary scholarship in many languages, Professor Xu reveals ubiquitous slippages from scholarly inquiry to political ideology. Although she trains her focus on the Korean case, her findings are paradigmatic. The importance of this book therefore goes far beyond the field of Northeast Asian historiography.” —Lothar Von Falkenhausen, UCLA

The Asian Initiative in Central Nyanza

“Godriver Wanga-Odhiambo traces the role of Asians in the establishment of the sugar industry in Kenya and effectively evaluates the dynamics of sugarcane farming and sugar production in colonial Kenya. The book is rich in historical detail, extensive in statistical data, and rigorous in critical analysis. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in issues of agrarian development in a colonial setting.” —Wanjala S. Nasong’o, Rhodes College

“The role of chiefs in colonial Kenya is a contested terrain. Dr. Wamagatta contributes to this debate by examining the career of Chief Waruhiu Kung’u of Kiambu. He traces his rise from a humble background to a wealthy, loyal, and distinguished pillar of Kenya’s colonial administration. He points out that to his subjects, he was a sellout due to his overzealousness in executing unpopular government policies. Nevertheless, Wamagatta refutes the ‘stooge’ tag by marshalling substantial evidence to show Waruhiu’s diverse efforts in championing his people’s welfare.” —Godfrey Muriuki, University of Nairobi

Kenya at a Crossroads

Administration and Economy Under Sir Percy Girouard, 1909–1912 By Abdullahi Sara, West Virginia University

“This thoroughly researched book provides a detailed and provocative analysis of the administration of Governor Sir Percy Girouard, whose administration marked one of several turning points in the history of colonial Kenya. This study of a failed governorship will be of interest to specialists and others interested in Kenyan history and British rule in twentieth century Africa.” —Robert Maxon, West Virginia University

“Based on an impressive set of data from Ibadan, the largest Yoruba city next to Lagos, the book traces the intersectionality between women and politics in the longue durée. It reveals how politics interacts with women’s business; how trade is shaped by non-market forces; and how daily activities cumulate into the architecture of national politics itself.

Mau Mau Crucible of War

Statehood, National Identity, and Politics of Postcolonial Kenya By Nicholas K. Githuku, York College, CUNY

This is a memoir of an extraordinary woman who, as a newlywed, travelled to German South West Africa. She chronicles colonial life, the natives of the colony, how the Spanish Influenza pandemic raged in Namibia, the South African occupation of German South West Africa, and the eventual ceding of the colony to South Africa.

“Nicholas Githuku’s history confronts Kenya’s violence and its political effects head on. He asks new questions about Kenya’s history, quotes previously unexamined evidence, and offers his readers important new insights. In all this he challenges his fellow Kenyans to join him in resurrecting their local historiography.” —John Lonsdale, Trinity College, Cambridge 2016 • 574 pages 978-1-4985-0698-4 • $140.00 / £95.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0699-1 • $139.99 / £95.00 • eBook

By Randall Fegley, Pennsylvania State University’s Berks College

Edited by Persephone Braham, University of Delaware

Bringing together essays on fashion, the visual arts, film, literature, and history, this volume shows how our understanding of the African diaspora in the Americas can be enriched by crossing disciplinary boundaries to recontextualize images, words, and thoughts as part of a much greater whole.

“Randall Fegley has produced a significant contribution to the literature on the Rwandan genocide. Through focusing on mythologies of violence, Fegley shows that Rwanda’s future may indeed depend partly on demystifying narratives about the past. Fegley’s treatment of the dilemmas involved in teaching history in Rwanda is particularly thoughtful.” —Kjell Anderson, Netherlands Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies 2016 • 194 pages 978-1-4985-1943-4 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1944-1 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

Proclivity to Genocide

The Algerian War in French-Language Comics

Northern Nigeria Ethno-Religious Conflict, 1966 to Present By Grace O. Okoye, independent scholar

Postcolonial Memory, History, and Subjectivity

“This is a poignant book that meticulously outlines the historical precedence for the ongoing conflicts in Northern Nigeria, leading to current ethno-religious violence. It offers an extensive treatise on the nature of genocide and the theoretical framework for its examination. Thus, it sets the stage for an exploration of what constitutes genocidal intent with an eye towards providing viable conflict management strategies.” —Claire Michèle Rice, Nova Southeastern University

By Jennifer Howell, Illinois State University

Howell argues that comics provide an alternative to textbook representations of the Algerian War in France because they draw from similar source materials yet produce narratives significantly different. She demonstrates that while comics rely on conventional vectors of memory like education, the family, and mainstream media, they can also create new dialogues using these vectors in ways unavailable to traditional textbooks.

The Biafran Humanitarian Crisis, 1967–1970 International Human Rights and Joint Church Aid

By Rico Devara Chapman, Jackson State University

By Arua Oko Omaka, Federal University, Nigeria

“Focusing on Fort Hare University in the eastern Cape, Rico Chapman provides an insightful analysis not only of student protests during the 1970s and 1980s against the apartheid system and Bantu Education but also against university policies in postapartheid South Africa. For understanding the historical backdrop of recent protests at South African universities, this volume is a must read.” —Robert Edgar, Howard University

Omaka focuses on the Biafran humanitarian crisis which generated a surge of human rights anxieties and attracted the attention of world humanitarian organizations. The study underlines that the international humanitarian aid largely contributed to the internationalization of the war. The efforts of the churches from thirty-three countries was not just the first of its kind in the developing world but also the largest civilian airlift in history.

Encounters between Palestinian Women and American Missionaries, 1880s–1940s

Facing the Temple Mount

Negotiating Palestinian Womanhood By Enaya Hammad Othman, Marquette University

The Planning and Building of the Hebrew University, 1919–1948 By Diana Dolev, Holon Institute of Technology

This is the first analytical study to examine the American Quaker educational enterprise in Palestine since its establishment in the late nineteenth century during the Ottoman rule and into the British Mandate period. Othman uses the Friends Girls School as a site of interaction between Arab and American cultures to uncover how Quaker education was received, translated, internalized, and responded to by Palestinian students in order to change their position within their society’s structural power relations.

“The story of the university and its buildings, from its first glimmerings in Zionist ideology through its manifold contradictions and paradoxes over the next three decades, is finely told in Diana Dolev’s book. This fascinating account is scrupulously researched and well-detailed. It offers a curious parallel history—of mythological forms and new visions—to that of Palestine in the first half of the twentieth century.” —Mark Crinson, University of Manchester 2016 • 186 pages 978-0-7391-9161-3 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9162-0 • $79.99 / £52.95 • eBook

“Sowell provides an excellent, engaging study of the history of medicine and healing in Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. He emphasizes the considerable accomplishments of the region’s medical elite, their connections to other communities within and beyond Mexico, and the tangled process by which the public health programs they created were subordinated to those of Mexico’s federal government. Overall, a valuable contribution to the growing scholarship on the history of medicine and public health in Latin America.” —Adam Warren, University of Washington

“This is by far the most conceptually sophisticated and detailed treatment to date of the martyrological meanings and political legacies of Mexico’s best-known beato, Father Miguel Pro. Combining elements of history, critical theory, and religious studies, and blending conventional archival sources with deft analysis of theatrical plays, political reportage, and telenovelas, this is a fresh and insightful study that brings the study of Mexico’s cristero martyrs up to date.” —Matthew J.

“Swanger’s Rebel Lands of Cuba is a groundbreaking work on the history of the Cuban revolution. It is a truly original analysis grounded in regional archives, and revealing the distinct political economy and social fabric in Oriente and in the Escambray. Swanger’s book demonstrates the contingency and competing definitions of ‘revolution,’ social reform, and counter-revolution. It makes a tremendous contribution to the historiography of the Cuban revolution and regional Cuban history.” —Jana Lipman, Tulane University

“The collected essays help us to recover the historical memory of Romero’s martyrdom and the martyrdom of thousands of other Latin Americans who in recent years provide us with a new lens into an understanding of the meaning and consequences of a ‘martyrdom of solidarity’ with the poor. Each of the selections document the synthesis that Romero achieved between orthopraxis and orthodoxy in his words and actions.” —Stephen P.

Remembering the Rescuers of Victims of Human Rights Crimes in Latin America

The Militant Song Movement in Latin America Edited by Pablo Vila, Temple University

“Latin America was rife with revolutions from the 1950s through the 1970s, and readers are unlikely to know the songs they spawned, since many of them were ephemeral and topical.... The writers discuss militant songs in relation to complex political movements. This volume is mainly about songs and their meanings. The approach is factual and ethnographic, not obscured by postmodern theory, but also extremely detailed and thus challenging for nonspecialists. Recommended.” —CHOICE

“The least noticed aspect of genocide is the courageous resistance often put up to save the victims. This collection shows how victims were helped during Cold War violence in Latin American countries. The rich exploration of historical cases enhances our general understanding of ‘rescue’, showing that it is not just a matter of bystander intervention but of solidarity among victims.” — Martin Shaw, emeritus, University of Sussex 2016 • 284 pages 978-1-4985-3326-3 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3327-0 • $84.99 / £54.95 • eBook

“By embedding credit and finance in their political, social, and cultural contexts, this book allows us to make our understanding of the economy much more complex. Together, the diversity of case studies—ranging from nineteenth-century reactions to bankruptcy in Switzerland to the financial crisis in twentieth-century colonial Zimbabwe—offer ways to understand better the making of economic decisions which, finally, is what truly matters.” —Laurence Fontaine, Centre Maurice Halbwachs, CNRS-ENS-EHESS Paris

Hegemonic War and Grand Strategy

New

By Aaron M. Zack, Baruch College

War, Conflict, and Politics

Ludwig Dehio, World History, and the American Future

“Zack’s impressive study takes us through a very long historical journey of international politics via the lens of an underappreciated yet provocative German thinker, Ludwig Dehio. Through Dehio’s fascinating theories of balance of power and hegemonic conflict, Zack brings to light important patterns in the evolution of state systems. From his historical laboratory, he moves on to tracing insights from these lessons of the past to glean important insights into present day American foreign policy.” —Giulio Gallarotti, Wesleyan University

Acceleration of History Edited by Alexios Alecou, Open University of Cyprus

“Alexios Alecou has brought together a notable set of scholars to look into the issue of the acceleration of history through a multitude of important historical themes. One essay creates a framework on how to interpret historical narratives in the theme of acceleration, while another examines how war can create the conditions for historical acceleration. The framework and concepts presented in this collection provide powerful tools for reinterpreting some of the events discussed.” —Alexandros Apostolides, European University Cyprus

History of Infectious Disease Pandemics in Urban Societies

New

By Mark D. Hardt, Montana State University, Billings

“This text is a dense, but erudite, narrative on pandemics and their disproportionate effects on human demographics. Hardt analyzes significant infectious events prior to the explosive concentration and connectivity of urban populations to the global community that began in the late 20th century. Using theoretical frameworks, he builds the argument that pandemics are a result of human crowding, which presents ideal conditions—namely, an unlimited food supply and protective shelter—for deadly microbial life cycles....

“Custred provides a remarkably deep history of anthropology. In response to those who call for a split between the traditional four-fields of anthropology, Custred demonstrates that, from its very beginnings, the most important anthropology has been done by scholars who practiced in a four-field framework. Custred shows that even some of the more humanistically-oriented anthropologists have made the argument that anthropology must be a holistic discipline. It is a strong work, and deserves a prominent place in the history of anthropology.” —Peter Peregrine, Lawrence University 2016 • 268 pages 978-1-4985-0763-9 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-0764-6 • $89.99 / £60.00 • eBook

Institutionalizing Gender Equality

By Jennifer M. Morris, Mount St. Joseph University

Historical and Global Perspectives

“Morris chronicles the establishment and early years of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the influence of the ideas and practices about aid to children and mothers inherited from its predecessor charities…. The leadership of the first executive director, Maurice Pate; the roles of Dr. Martha Eliot and other personnel; interactions with related agencies, such as the Food and Agriculture Organization and the World Health Organization; and efforts to support US foreign policy in Europe to secure crucial funding are explored…. Recommended.”—CHOICE

Edited by Yulia Gradskova, Södertörn University, and Sara Sanders, Grinnell College

“This is a timely and fascinating book. The thirteen chapters, generally very well written and documented, critically examine historical and contemporary dimensions of ‘gender equality’ and its institutionalization from the 1960s through the 2010s. Institutionalizing Gender Equality enhances our understanding of global gender equality politics in the contexts of the Cold War, neoliberalism, nationalism, and religious fundamentalism.

Is the West in Decline?

Historical, Military, and Economic Perspectives

Edited by Benjamin M. Rowland, independent scholar

“The consistently interesting contributions to this volume were written mainly by friends and former students of Professor David Calleo of the Paul H. Nitze School of Advanced International Studies in Washington DC. Yet its chapters are notably diverse both in their approach and in their level of analysis…. A brilliant collection.” —Survival: Global Politics and Strategy

“Given the tremendous cultural, economic, and political impact of sports, it is surprising how little sport is analyzed and taught.... Employing a historical framework, Anderson begins with the origins of modern European sport and its eventual transmission to former colonies, including the US…. This wellresearched book is a useful first resource for scholars and students of sports and politics.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

Cities Called Athens

Ambiguous Legacies of Leadership

Edited by Kevin F. Daly, Bucknell University, and Lee Ann Riccardi, College of New Jersey

Fourteen essays share new and evolving knowledge, theories, and observations about the city of Athens or the region of Attica. They cover topography, architecture, religion and cult, sculpture, ceramic studies, iconography, epigraphy, trade, and drama. This volume is dedicated to John McK. Camp II, acknowledging the extraordinary impact he had on the field of Greek archaeology.

“Like a self-proclaimed latter day Plutarch, Justin Lyons boldly goes where Alexander the Great of Macedon and Hernán Cortés of Castile blazed their respective trails, comparing and contrasting the motives, methods and achievements of the two conquering empirebuilders who changed the political map of the world, and doing so within an illuminating overall moral-philosophical frame of reference and evaluation.” —Paul Cartledge, University of Cambridge

Ecocriticism, Ecology, and the Cultures of Antiquity Edited by Christopher Schliephake, University of Augsburg

“Too many writers assume that ecocriticism and environmental engagement began with the poems of Wordsworth or the writings of Thoreau. This collection of essays well demonstrates that for as long as humans have been creating texts they have been meditating critically upon their place within a natural world that far exceeds them in scale and duration…. This work demonstrates that the Greek and Latin texts of antiquity have much of importance to say to a critical conversation today.” —Jeffrey J. Cohen, George Washington University

Polis Expansion and Elite Power in Hellenistic Karia

Particularly important are his efforts to tease out the multiplicity of interests at work and his insistence on the crucial role of local conditions.” —Gary Reger, Trinity College

Sacred Scents in Early Christianity and Islam

Jan Hus between Time and Eternity Reconsidering a Medieval Heretic

By Thomas A. Fudge, University of New England, Australia

By Mary Thurlkill, University of Mississippi

“The historical reputation of Jan Hus, the reforming Czech preacher executed for heresy by the Council of Constance in 1415, has been too long the captive of religious and nationalist agendas. In this challenging book, Thomas Fudge undertakes a revision of the simplistic hagiography of Hus the martyr. His book gives us material on under explored topics like Hus’ attitude toward women and sex, as well as his views on heresy. Fudge also gives overdue attention to Hus’ foes and their opinion that he was stiff-necked and arrogant.” —Thomas Izbicki, Rutgers University

“By focusing her breadth of historical acumen and depth of aesthetic sensibility on the significance of scent in the late antique Roman and Arabian worlds, Thurkill invites us to consider the fascinating ways in which the religious experience was informed and mediated by their sense of smell. Like musk emanating from the hair of the beloved, or cumin from the hearth, this book beckons the reader to enter a world of intellectual delight.” —Scott C.

Aquinas on Beauty By Christopher Scott Sevier

Choice Outstanding Academic Title “This study offers an account of Thomas Aquinas’s conception of beauty…. Sevier begins with an examination of the psychological factors involved in aesthetic experience, which entails an appreciation of the complex interplay between desire and pleasure within the human subject. The author analyzes the objective features in the beautiful object—those essential ‘constituents’ (proportion, integrity, and clarity) that make particular beings so appealing to perceivers…. Sevier addresses the issue of whether Thomas considered beauty a separate transcendental property in relation to being, truth, and goodness.… Highly recommended.” —CHOICE 2015 • 240 pages 978-1-4985-1254-1 • $44.99 / £29.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-8424-0 • $85.00 / £54.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-8425-7 • $44.99 / £29.95 • eBook

For those unfamiliar with the life of María de Molina, this work provides an excellent introduction.

ABOUT LEXINGTON BOOKS’ HISTORY PROGRAMME Founded in 1970, Lexington Books serves as Rowman & Littlefield’s imprint for publishing specialized new works by established and emerging scholars, with a critically acclaimed list of high-quality academic works that make a significant contribution to today’s scholarship. At a time when many publishers are cutting back on publishing monographs and edited collections, Lexington Books is dramatically expanding its programme, including its list in History.

EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS Lexington Books is currently reviewing new manuscript proposals in History. To submit a proposal for consideration, please send a prospectus, a detailed table of contents, one or two sample chapters, and your curriculum vitae. If you are proposing a contributed volume, please include titles/affiliations for each of the contributors, and we would accept chapter abstracts in lieu of sample chapters. Please do not send your entire manuscript. An acquisitions editor will contact you to request additional materials. The prospectus should include the following: 1. A description of the book, what makes it unique, and why you are qualified to write it. 2. A description of your target audience (undergraduate or graduate students? scholars? professionals?). 3. An analysis of competing or similar books (including publishers and dates). 4. A list of courses in which your book might be used as a text or supplementary text. 5. An indication of whether any part of your manuscript has been published previously, and if it is a doctoral dissertation, what changes you are proposing to prepare it for publication. 6. The length of the manuscript in 12-point type on double-spaced A4 pages. 7. If the manuscript is not complete, an estimation of when it will be finished. 8. An indication of whether the manuscript is under consideration by other publishers.
