World History

How Women Have Transformed the World since 1900 By Maria Bucur

“Maria Bucur’s brilliant book not only challenges the masculine bias in popular history, it provides an essential international perspective on one of the most significant of social revolutions of our time: the global women’s movement.” —Kristen R. Ghodsee, University of Pennsylvania This innovative text explores the unprecedented changes in the realms of politics, demography, economics, culture, knowledge, and kinship that women have brought about in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Global in reach, the book provides a comparative analysis of developments worldwide to show both progress as well as new tensions and forms of inequality that have emerged out of women’s entry into politics, wage employment, education, and the production of culture. Beginning with suffrage and moving to participation in international movements—such as anti-war, labor, and environmental rights activism—Maria Bucur explores how women have transformed the operation of states and international institutions. She focuses on the radical demographic shifts since 1900 through the prism of changing practices in women’s sexuality, from birth control practices to education. Maria Bucur is John V. Hill Professor of History at Indiana University Bloomington.

By Amos Tubb

“Tubb’s masterful account of Violet’s life draws from primary sources as well as current scholarship, giving readers an absorbing view into the life, politics, and history of seventeenthcentury England.” —Warren Johnston, Algoma University This book chronicles the life and adventures of Thomas Violet, an Englishman who lived from 1609 to 1662. During the course of his tumultuous life Violet was a goldsmith, a spy, a prisoner of war during the English Civil War, a traitor to both sides, a major economic theorist, an anti-Semite who nearly drove the Jews of England out of the country, and a suicide. Violet’s life consisted of one unbelievable escapade after another. He was a scoundrel who used his knowledge of the financial markets of his day to legally extort money out of people in scheme after scheme for nearly thirty years. Along the way, he was caught up in the English Civil War and interacted with many of the major players—he knew and worked for King Charles I, Oliver Cromwell, and King Charles II.

Debussy’s Paris

Piano Portraits of the Belle Époque By Catherine Kautsky

“A treat for music lovers, Francophiles, and anyone who appreciates the arts.”—Booklist Claude Debussy’s exquisite piano works have captivated generations with their dreamlike atmosphere and mysterious soundscapes. Written in Paris at the height of the Belle Époque, the music creates a soundtrack for Parisians’ enjoyment of such delights as clowns, mermaids, eccentric dances, and the dark tales of Edgar Allan Poe. Debussy’s Paris: Piano Portraits of the Belle Époque explores how key works reflect not only the most appealing and innocent aspects of Paris but also more disquieting attitudes of the time such as racism, colonial domination, and nationalistic hostility. Debussy left no avenue unexplored, and his piano works present a sweeping overview of the passions, vices, and obsessions of the era. Catherine Kautsky is chair of keyboard at Lawrence University.

Napoleon’s Paper Kingdom

Interrogation Nation

By Sam A. Mustafa

By Keith R. Allen

The Life and Death of Westphalia, 1807–1813 “[A]n excellent contribution to our understanding of Napoleonic state-building and warfare and the diverse fate of Germans living under French rule.” —Katherine Aaslestad, West Virginia University Placing the creation of Westphalia within the context of the larger German story of the Napoleonic Wars, this groundbreaking book offers the only complete history of Napoleon’s grand experiment to construct a model state in Germany. Sam A. Mustafa shows how Westphalia became a proving ground for the allegedly liberating and modern concepts of the French Revolution, brought by foreign conquest and enforced by a powerful new centralized state. Over the next six years, the inhabitants of this region experienced fundamental and often jarring changes in almost every aspect of their lives. They witnessed a profound clash of French and German culture, as well as new ideas about law, nationality, and politics. And yet, for all of its promise on paper, Westphalia ended up despised by most of its people, who cheered at its collapse and in many cases helped to bring it down. What went wrong with this early example of what we would today call “nation building” and how did Germans react to the changes? Napoleon’s Paper Kingdom is the first book in the English language to provide a comprehensive investigation of this fascinating chapter of the Napoleonic Wars. Sam A. Mustafa is professor of history at Ramapo College of New Jersey.

Refugees and Spies in Cold War Germany “Keith Allen opens a vital window to the history of interrogations and intelligence through his careful, nuanced, and fascinating exploration of refugee screening in western Germany.” —Michael Gordin, Princeton University “[A] research masterpiece on the topic of post–World War II interrogation procedures.” —Rebecca Lemov, Harvard University This groundbreaking book explores the treatment of the millions of refugees and tens of thousands of spies that flooded Germany after World War II. Drawing on newly declassified espionage files, Keith R. Allen uncovers long-hidden interrogation systems that were developed by Germany’s western occupiers to protect internal security and gather intelligence about the Soviet Union. He shows how vetting in the name of public order brought foreign intelligence officials into practically every venue, from train stations to corporate boardrooms to private dwellings, in postwar West Germany. At the heart of efforts to extract insights were extensive, personalized efforts by law enforcement and security officials to manipulate desires and emotions involving dearest family members, closest friends, and trusted colleagues. Linking personal narratives of those interrogated to the international context of postwar politics, Allen reveals a compelling world inhabited by spies and refugees. Keith R. Allen is a research scholar at the Institut für Zeitgeschichte, Munich-Berlin.

Silent Conflict

A Hidden History of Early Soviet-Western Relations By Michael Jabara Carley

CHOICE Outstanding Academic Title

“This superb book offers a compelling reinterpretation of the first decade of Soviet foreign policy, up to the late 1920s.” —CHOICE “Every historian dealing with the Soviet Union of the 1920s––or with France, Britain, Germany, or the United States for that matter––should read and absorb the lessons of this work.”—Russian Review This deeply informed book traces the dramatic history of early Soviet-western relations after World War I. Michael Jabara Carley provides a lively exploration of the formative years of Soviet foreign policy making after the Bolshevik Revolution, especially focusing on Soviet relations with the West during the 1920s. Carley demonstrates beyond doubt that this seminal period—termed the “silent conflict” by one Soviet diplomat—launched the Cold War. He shows that Soviet-western relations, at best grudging and mistrustful, were almost always hostile. Concentrating on the major western powers—Germany, France, Great Britain, and the United States—the author also examines the ongoing political upheaval in China that began with the May Fourth Movement in 1919 as a critical influence on western-Soviet relations. Michael Jabara Carley is professor and head of history at the University of Montreal.

The Pity of War

England and Germany, Bitter Friends, Beloved Foes By Miranda Seymour

“Biographer Seymour, granddaughter of diplomat Richard Seymour who served in Berlin under Queen Victoria, captures the tumultuous relationship between England and Germany in this ambitious exploration of the period from 1613–1945.” —Publishers Weekly “A well-researched collection of stories that emphasizes the connection rather than the divide among nations, this book should appeal to students of international relations and peace studies as well as Anglophiles and Germanophiles.” —Library Journal Miranda Seymour tells the forgotten story of England’s centuries of profound connection and increasingly rivalrous friendship with Germany, linked by a shared faith, a shared hunger for power, a shared culture (Germany never doubted that Shakespeare belonged to them, as much as to England), and a shared leadership. German monarchs ruled over England for three hundred years—and only ceased to do so through a change of name.

The World of James Bond

Stevereads Best Books of 2014: History & Biography Honor Roll

12

In this remarkable memoir, Milan Panic tells the formerly unknown story of his attempts to oust Slobodan Milosevic and his battles with the US State Department in an effort to bring peace to the Balkans during the Yugoslav Wars. A young cycling champion who fought the Nazi occupation in Yugoslavia with Tito’s partisans, Panic defected after World War II from his now-communist country to start a new life in the US. But his greatest challenge still lay ahead when he was invited to serve as prime minister of Yugoslavia. But in Belgrade, ancient enmities and suspicions festered, and the threat of tragedy and bloodshed loomed large as ethnic conflict raged. And even as Panic implored the West for support, he would have to outwit the machinations of a wily Serbian dictator, Slobodan Milosevic.

The Lives and Times of 007 By Jeremy Black

“[A] worthy addition to the ever-growing literature about the world’s most famous superspy.”—Booklist This book presents an insightful and thoroughly entertaining exploration of the political context of the Bond books and films. Jeremy Black offers a historian’s interpretation from the perspective of the late 2010s, assessing James Bond in terms of the greatly changing world order of the Bond years—a lifetime that stretches from 1953, when the first novel appeared, to the present. Black argues that the Bond novels—the Fleming books as well as the often-neglected novels authored by others after Fleming died in 1964—and films drew on current fears in order to reduce the implausibility of the villains and their villainy. Jeremy Black is professor of history at University of Exeter and author of multiple books, including Naval Warfare, Insurgency and Counterinsurgency, Combined Operations, and the forthcoming Fortifications and Siegecraft.

“[A]n excellent and honest portrayal of an exciting and vital era in European history.” —Booklist

By 1900, the Belle Epoque was in full flower— thanks to an extraordinary blossoming in art, literature, poetry, and music that dramatically upended the Parisian cultural scene. Through the eyes of these pioneers and others, including Sarah Bernhardt, Georges Clemenceau, Marie Curie, and César Ritz, we witness their struggles with the forces of tradition during the final years of a century hurtling towards its close. Through rich illustrations and vivid narrative, McAuliffe brings this vibrant and seminal era to life.

The Paris of Picasso, Stravinsky, Proust, Renault, Marie Curie, Gertrude Stein, and Their Friends through the Great War By Mary McAuliffe

McAuliffe portrays Paris in full flower at the turn of the 20th century, where creative dynamos set their respective circles on fire with their revolutionary visions and discoveries. But all was not well in this world, underscored by ominous drumbeat of the approaching Great War—a cataclysm that would brutally bring the Belle Epoque to its close.

Marie Antoinette’s Darkest Days Prisoner No. 280 in the Conciergerie By Will Bashor

“A brilliant and ambitious tour de force.” —Yolande Aline Helm, Ohio University Will Bashor traces the final days of the prisoner registered only as Widow Capet, No. 280, a time that was a cruel mixture of grandeur, humiliation, and terror. Marie Antoinette’s reign amidst the splendors of the court of Versailles is a familiar story, but her final imprisonment in a fetid, dank dungeon is a little-known coda to a oncecharmed life. Her seventy-six days in this terrifying prison can only be described as the darkest and most horrific of the fallen queen’s life, vividly recaptured in this richly researched history. Will Bashor is professor of global issues at Franklin University and author of Marie Antoinette’s Head.

The Phony Reformer

Greed, Status, and Patronage in Late Qing China Edited and translated by Luke S. K. Kwong

Translated with commentary by Arshia Sattar

This engaging translation presents an authentic period document that reflects aspects of Chinese life and society as seen through contemporary eyes. Portraying a “phony” reformer who rode the tide of the Qing court’s post-Boxer reform initiatives to career success and personal wealth, this satire conveys the author’s hope for a new, improved China, one that could stand proudly alongside Western nations and Meiji Japan in the modern world. His vivid descriptions of various situations shed light on late Qing elite behavior and Chinese foreign relations capture the clash between tradition and modernity, the old and new, as educated Chinese stood at a cultural and political crossroads.

A Century of Change in a Chinese Village

Resistant Islands

Edited and translated by Linda Grove. By Lin Juren

By Gavan McCormack and Satoko Oka Norimatsu

The Crisis of the Countryside

The transformation of China from a poor rural country to an economic and geopolitical powerhouse is one of the great stories of our contemporary world. As migrant laborers have flooded out of rural villages, what has happened to the rural communities that were once the center of Chinese economic, social and cultural life? That is the question a group of Chinese researchers set out to answer in their study of the classic issues of social analysis: family and lineage, social stratification, personal networks and patterns of interaction, annual and life style rituals, village politics and elite formation, and social and market relations between countryside and cities.

This comprehensive assessment of historical and contemporary determinants of SinoAmerican relations has been brought up to date with full treatment of rising tensions over salient differences since the ascendance of China’s dynamic leader Xi Jinping (2012– ). Incoming President Barack Obama (2009– 2017) was pressured by China; he responded with his signature rebalance policy of greater US engagement throughout China’s periphery. Reacting negatively, Xi Jinping used coercive means and other initiatives to advance at the expense of the United States. Widespread American disappointment prompted calls for tougher actions, and now President Donald Trump’s absence of a coherent strategy has added to uncertainty looking forward. Robert G.

Followers have not only built and sustained the world’s largest democracy but have also sustained one of the greatest philosophical streams in the world for more than three thousand years. Being Hindu is a practitioner’s guide that takes the reader on a journey to very simply understand what the Hindu message is, where it stands in the clash of civilizations between Islam and Christianity, and why the Hindu way could yet be the path for plurality and progress in the twenty-first century.

This pathbreaking study provides the first comprehensive examination of India-China interactions in the broader contexts of Asian and world history. By focusing on material exchanges, transmissions of knowledge and technologies, networks of exchange during the colonial period, and little-known facets of interactions between the Republic of India and the People’s Republic of China, Tansen Sen argues convincingly that the analysis of India-China connections must extend beyond the traditional frameworks of nation-states or bilateralism. Instead, he demonstrates that a wide canvas of space, people, objects, and timeframe is needed to fully comprehend the interactions between India and China in the past and during the contemporary period.

Betrayal and Forgiveness in a Chinese Christian Family By Jennifer Lin

China’s Political System Edited by Sebastian Heilmann

“The book’s clear and accessible style and extensive use of charts and tables promises a receptive readership and wide adoption for classroom use. I strongly recommend this book as a textbook..” —Elizabeth Perry, Harvard University

“Scholars and lay readers interested in China will enjoy this vital work.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Lin’s story is altogether a compelling and inspiring one that is sure to interest a wide range of readers.” —Booklist, Starred Review

The Chinese government is one of the most important actors in international affairs today. To thoroughly understand how the People’s Republic of China has grown in power requires a careful analysis of its political system.

“An useful, interesting book for students of modern Chinese history and of missionary Christianity.” —Kirkus Veteran journalist Jennifer Lin takes readers from remote nineteenth-century mission outposts to the thriving house churches and cathedrals of today’s China. The Lin family—and the book’s central figure, the Reverend Lin Pu-chi—offer witness to China’s tumultuous past, up to and beyond the betrayals and madness of the Cultural Revolution, when the family’s resolute faith led to years of suffering. With its sweep of history and the intimacy of long-hidden family stories, Shanghai Faithful offers a fresh look at Christianity in China—past, present, and future. Jennifer Lin is an award-wining journalist and former reporter for the Philadelphia Inquirer.

To what extent can China’s economic achievements be attributed to the country’s political system and its policies? Is the Chinese political system capable of adapting to changing economic, technological, social, and international conditions? Exploring these questions, this book provides readers with a comprehensive assessment of the preconditions, prospects, and risks associated with China’s political development. Sebastian Heilmann is president of the Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS) in Berlin and professor for the political economy of China at the University of Trier.

Asian & Pacific History Women in Imperial China

By Bret Hinsch

“This book is an informative survey of Chinese women’s history from ancient beginnings to the end of the Qing Dynasty…. Highly recommended.” —CHOICE This accessible text provides a comprehensive survey of women’s history in China from the Neolithic period through the end of the Qing dynasty in the early twentieth century. Rather than providing an exhaustive chronicle of this vast subject, Bret Hinsch pinpoints the themes that characterized distinct periods in Chinese women’s history and delves into the perception of female identity in each era. Moving beyond the traditional focus on the late imperial era, Hinsch explores how gender relations have developed and changed since ancient times.

Peasants, Rebels, Women, and Outcastes The Underside of Modern Japan

Updated Second Edition By Mikiso Hane with introduction by Samuel H. Yamashita

“Highly recommended.” —CHOICE This compelling social history uses diaries, memoirs, fiction, trial testimony, personal recollections, and eyewitness accounts to weave a fascinating tale of what ordinary Japanese endured throughout their country’s era of economic growth. Through vivid, often wrenching accounts of peasants, miners, textile workers, rebels, and prostitutes, Mikiso Hane forces us to see Japan’s “modern century” (from the beginnings of contact with the West to World War II) through fresh eyes. In doing so, he mounts a formidable challenge to the success story of Japan’s “economic miracle.”

By Tatsuichi Horikiri and translated by Rieko Wagoner

“Comfort Woman will be a welcome addition to courses in Asian studies as well as women’s history courses.” —Journal of In April 1943, fifteen-year-old Maria Rosa Henson was taken by Japanese soldiers occupying the Philippines and forced into prostitution as a “comfort woman.” In this simply told yet powerfully moving autobiography, Rosa recalls her childhood as the illegitimate daughter of a wealthy landowner, her work for Huk guerrillas, her wartime ordeal, and her marriage to a rebel leader who left her to raise their children alone.

“Heath’s enthusiasm and brevity make this a solid introduction, and his epilogue provides plenty of resources for further study.” —Publishers Weekly

The Jews of Khazaria explores the history and culture of Khazaria—a large empire in eastern Europe (located in present-day Ukraine and Russia) in the early Middle Ages noted for its adoption of the Jewish religion.

“With an impressive command of his terrain and in lucid prose devoid of academic jargon, Colin Shindler guides the reader along the road from early Zionist idealism to contemporary Machiavellian politics.” —Alice Shalvi, emerita, Hebrew University of Jerusalem

The third edition of this modern classic features new and updated material throughout, including new archaeological findings, new genetic (DNA) evidence, and new information about the migration of the Khazars. Though little-known today, Khazaria was one of the largest-sized political formations of its time— an economic and cultural power connected to several important trade routes and known for its religious tolerance. After the royal family converted to Judaism in the 9th century, many nobles and common people did likewise. The Khazars were ruled by a succession of Jewish kings and adopted many hallmarks of Jewish civilization, including the Torah and Talmud, Hebrew script, and the observance of Jewish holidays. Kevin Alan Brook is an American historian and genetic genealogy consultant who has researched the Khazars since 1993.

The saga of Israel is fascinating, unique, and controversial. Yet the whole is constructed from individual episodes. This book concentrates on relating such episodes rather than narrating a formal, conventional history up until the present day. Each section deals with a different aspect of this journey through the decades. The chapters are based on the author’s own articles, published over the last fifty years in many outlets, from the New York Times and the Jerusalem Post to The Guardian. Each section and essay is linked to the next by an explanatory introduction. Most subjects are often unconventional and unusual. They do not cover old ground and are often intentionally revelatory as they relate the history of Israel in a vivid, engaging way. Colin Shindler was the first professor of Israel Studies in the UK and is professor emeritus at the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London.

The Archaeology Hotspots series offers readerfriendly and engaging narratives of the archaeology in particular countries. Written by archaeological experts with a general reader in mind, each book in the series focuses on what has been found and by whom, what the controversies and scandals have been, ongoing projects, and how it all fits into a broader view of the history of the country. In Archaeology Hotspot Egypt, scholar Julian Heath provides a chronological overview beginning with handaxes left by Homo erectus during the Lower Paleolithic and moving onwards through pharaonic Egypt to finish in the Greco-Roman period. He covers the most interesting finds— including Tutankhamen’s tomb and the Rosetta Stone—and profiles major personalities, past and present. Current digs and recent insights on the past are also covered, such as the massive tomb of KV5 and how contemporary scientific techniques are unearthing new information about ancient Egyptian people and animals. The result is an illuminating look at the history, culture, national heritage, and current archaeological news of Egypt—a hotspot of archaeology.

Herod the Great

Statesman, Visionary, Tyrant By Norman Gelb

“This book accurately portrays the turbulent life and times of King Herod the Great in a highly readable and engaging manner. Fastpaced and clearly written, it will appeal to a broad audience.” —Jodi Magness, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Herod the Great, king of ancient Judea, was a brutal, ruthless, vindictive, and dangerously high-strung tyrant. But in this book, Norman Gelb explores how Herod transformed his formerly strive-ridden kingdom into a modernizing, economically thriving, orderly state of international significance and repute within the sprawling Roman Empire. This reassessment of Herod as ruler of Judaea introduces a striking contrast between a ruler’s infamy and his extraordinary laudable achievements.

The Cuban Missile Crisis as History, Warning, and Catalyst By James G. Blight and janet M. Lang

“This book builds in intensity, from the first shocking page to the last sober reflection. The sensory material about the impact of the U.S. low-level flights over Cuba is perfect, brilliant. These are true war sounds.” —Edward T. Linenthal, Indiana University; former editor-inchief, Journal of American History In Dark Beyond Darkness, James Blight and janet Lang, among the world’s foremost authorities on the Cuban missile crisis, synthesize the findings from their thirty-year project on the most dangerous moment in recorded history. Authoritative, accessible, and written with their usual flair and wit, DBD is the first book to take readers deeply inside the experience and calculations of Fidel Castro, who was willing to martyr Cuba if his new Russian ally would nuke the U.S. and destroy it. Blight and Lang have established that in October 1962, the world was on the brink of Armageddon, and that we escaped by luck. Their history is scary but unimpeachably accurate: we just barely escaped the cold and the dark in October 1962.

Colombia

A Concise Contemporary History

Second Edition By Michael J. LaRosa and Germán R. Mejía, with foreword by Pamela S. Murray

“This book offers a refreshing perspective on Colombian history.” —Lina Del Castillo, University of Texas at Austin

TEXTBOOK

As new social actors have emerged in Latin America, the process of dealing with the legacy of still-unresolved human rights abuses has been significantly reinvigorated. This powerful text provides the first systematic analysis of the second wave of memory and justice mobilization throughout INSPECTION the region. A multidisciplinary group of COPY authors consider the changed political, economic, and social conditions that have led to new forms of social action. They trace the growth of human rights groups as fundamental political organizations in the post-dictatorship era, the participation of public authorities in the investigation and persecution of human rights abusers, and the implementation of national and international human rights legislation.

Latino Stars in Major League Baseball: From Bobby Abreu to Carlos Zambrano celebrates the ever-increasing diversity of baseball in America. It includes more than 140 in-depth profiles of retired and active ballplayers representing countries across Latin America and the Caribbean. For many of these players, the road to “The Show” wasn’t easy—discrimination, poverty, language barriers, and government restrictions are major obstacles that Latino players have faced in the past and continue to face today. Author Jonathan Weeks covers these struggles and more in the profiles, showing the players’ strength, resiliency, and ultimately, their rise to the top of professional baseball.

This deeply informed and accessible book traces the history of Colombia thematically over the past two centuries. In twelve interlinked chapters, Michael J. LaRosa and Germán R. Mejía depart from more standard approaches by presenting a history of political, social, and cultural accomplishments within the context of Colombia’s specific geographic and economic realities.

INSPECTION COPY

Their emphasis on cultural development, international relations, and everyday life contrasts sharply with works that brand Colombia as a failed state, focusing on its violent past or on an economy deeply dependent on narcotics. Instead, the authors emphasize Colombia’s remarkable national cohesion and endurance since the early nineteenth century wars for independence. Michael J.

“A valuable Cuban overview of the continuities and ruptures in the relationship between the United States and Cuba.” —Barry Carr, La Trobe University This timely book takes the historic restoration of diplomatic ties between Cuba and the United States in 2015 as the point of departure for a Cuban perspective on future relations. Tracing the history of the long and contentious relationship, Francisco López Segrera analyzes the prerevolutionary and Cold War periods as well as more recent changes within each nation and in the international environment that led to the diplomatic opening and the abandonment of regime change as the goal of US policy.

Problems in Modern Mexican History Sources and Interpretations

Edited by William H. Beezley and Monica A. Rankin

Mexicans, since national independence, have defined their challenges as problems or dimensions in their lives. They have faced these issues alone or with others through politics, security (the military, police, or even public health squads), religion, family, and popular groups. This compelling reader collects documents—texts, visuals, videos, and sounds—from organizational reports, popular expressions, and ephemeral creations to express these concerns, reveal responses, and measure successes.

The Oligarchy and the Old Regime in Latin America, 1880–1970

In the last decades of the nineteenth century and early years of the twentieth, a new class—the oligarchy—consolidated its wealth and political power in Latin America. Its members were the sugar planters, coffee growers, cattle barons, and bankers who were growing rich in a rapidly expanding global economy.

Examining these immensely powerful groups, Dennis Gilbert provides a systematic comparative history of the rise INSPECTION and ultimate demise of the oligarchies COPY that dominated Latin America for nearly a century. He then sketches a fine-grained portrait of three prominent Peruvian families, providing a vivid window into the everyday exercise of power.

This innovative text offers a clear and concise introduction to Latin America since independence. Thomas C. Wright traces continuity and change in five central colonial legacies: authoritarian governance; a rigid social hierarchy based on race, color, and gender; the powerful Roman Catholic Church; economic dependency; and the large landed estate. He shows that the outcomes of debate and contestation over these colonial legacies have been crucial in shaping contemporary political systems, economies, societies, and religious institutions in a richly diverse region.

“A worthy successor to the first edition…. Highly recommended.”

This text focuses on US relations with Latin America from the advent of the New Diplomacy late in the nineteenth century to the present. Providing a balanced perspective, it presents both the United States’ view that the Western Hemisphere needed to unite under a common democratic, capitalistic society and the Latin American countries’ response to U.S. attempts to impose these goals on its southern neighbors. The authors examine the reciprocal interactions between the two regions, each with distinctive purposes, outlooks, interests, and cultures.

TEXTBOOK

Spanish Dollars and Sister Republics traces the linked history of the new nations of Mexico and the United States from the 1770s to the 1860s. Tatiana Seijas and Jake Frederick highlight the common challenges facing both countries in their early decades of independence by exploring the creation of coin money.

The remarkable story begins when both countries chose the Spanish piece of eight (silver coin) as their monetary standard. The authors examine how each nation instituted its own currency, designed coins to represent its national ideals, and then spent decades trying to establish the legitimacy of its money.

FORTHCOMING

Fortifications and Siegecraft Defense and Attack through the Ages By Jeremy Black

“I know of no one else who has the knowledge and analytical skills to carry out this ambitious project, nothing less than a global history of fortifications.” —John H. Maurer, US Naval War College Centers for defense and bases for attack since ancient times, fortifications are a crucial aspect of military history. Indeed, as Jeremy Black shows, the history of fortifications is a global history of humanity itself. Moreover, their remains offer a still potent, often dramatic, testimony to the past, notably through the strength of the sites, the power of the works, and the vast resources they requuired. This compelling book explores not only the history of fortifications themselves, but also the real and potential threat to them posed by siegecraft. Tracing the interaction of attack and defense over time, Black situates the evolution of fortifications within the wider development of governments, societies, and cultures. Moreover, his examination of the future of these installations, as well as of potential methods of destroying them, only reaffirms their omnipresence in human history— and their continued importance. Jeremy Black is professor of history at the University of Exeter and author of Naval Warfare, Insurgency and Counterinsurgency, Combined Operations, and The World of James Bond.

Combined Operations

By Lawrence Sondhaus

By Jeremy Black

“[Sondhaus] persuasively demonstrates how Germany’s submarine policy cost them the war.” —Publishers Weekly

“As with his previous books on world military, strategic, and operational history, this work is a tour de force addressing the fundamental dynamics inherent in combined military operations.” —Stanley D. M. Carpenter, US Naval War College

The Onset of Total War at Sea

This compelling book explores Germany’s campaign of unrestricted submarine warfare in World War I, which marked the onset of total war at sea. Lawrence Sondhaus shows how the undersea campaign, intended as an antidote to Britain’s more conventional blockade of German ports, ultimately brought the United States into the war. Although the German people readily embraced the argument that an “undersea blockade” of Britain enforced by their navy’s Unterseeboote (U-boats) was the moral equivalent of the British navy’s blockade of German ports, international opinion never accepted its legitimacy. Sondhaus explains that in their initial, somewhat confused rollout of unrestricted submarine warfare in 1915, German leaders underestimated the extent to which the policy would alienate the United States. In rationalizing the risk of resuming the unrestricted campaign in 1917, they took for granted that, should the United States join the Allies, German U-boats would be able to stop the transport of an American army to France. But by bringing the United States into the war, while also failing to stop the deployment of its troops to Europe, unrestricted submarine warfare ultimately led to Germany’s defeat. Lawrence Sondhaus is professor of history at the University of Indianapolis.

TEXTBOOK

—Library Journal

“This is the rare book that will appeal to a wide audience.” —Lawrence Sondhaus, University of Indianapolis

This fascinating history explores one of America’s earliest counterinsurgency campaigns outside the Western Hemisphere. Few remember that shortly before the end of World War I, the United States sent thousands of troops to Siberia, who remained there for a year and a half to suppress the Bolshevik Revolution. Carl J. Richard convincingly shows that the intervention ironically enabled the survival of the emerging Soviet regime and influenced subsequent Soviet-American relations.

The modern age of naval warfare began with the combination of steam power, iron warships, and modern artillery, which launched an intense period of international competition. INSPECTION COPY

Tracing naval warfare from the 1860s into the future, noted historian Jeremy Black provides a dynamic account of strategy and warfare worldwide. He focuses on the interplay of technological development, geopolitics, and resource issues to assess not only the role of leading powers but all those involved in naval conflict.

Unlike other studies that begin with the American and French revolutions, this book reaches back to antiquity to trace the pre-modern origins of war within states.

Christ through Middle Eastern Eyes By Andrew Thompson

“Jesus of Arabia is one of those rare books that has both a theological depth and an inviting accessibility. Thompson has written a gem about the Jesus most of us in the West never meet—the real one…. I highly recommend both this book and its author.” —Carl Medearis, author, Muslims, Christians, and Jesus: Gaining Understanding and Building Relationships In Jesus of Arabia, the Reverend Canon Andrew Thompson introduces an unfamiliar Jesus— Jesus in the context of his home in the Middle East. Whether readers believe Jesus to be a prophet or the messiah, Thompson enhances our understanding of his work and character by looking at his social context as a man and Middle Easterner. Jesus’s teachings take on new meaning as Thompson explores themes including family in Arabia, gender roles in the region, food culture, and more. Jesus of Arabia looks at the bridges between Islam and Christianity through the figure of Jesus and how the two communities may reflect each other despite their differences. Thompson draws on his experience as a priest in the Anglican Church and his many years living in the Middle East to analyze the often conflicting roles and loyalties concerning family, culture, and God.

Americans and the Birth of Israel

In Search of a Prophet

By Lawrence J. Epstein

By Paul-Gordon Chandler

“At a moment when many young American Jews are questioning their connection to the state of Israel, Lawrence Epstein has given us a compelling reminder of the depths of that relationship for both Israel and American Jewry. A fascinating story about courage, commitment, and above all love.” —Yossi Klein Halevi, Shalom Hartman Institute, Jerusalem; author, Like Dreamers

“[A] solid introduction to Gibran and his complex work.”—Publishers Weekly

Americans and the Birth of Israel tells the dramatic story of how a ragtag group of Americans of all religions worked, often in secret and facing the possibility of arrest and imprisonment, to make sure that after the Holocaust a refuge for Jews would be born. It is a story that is not well-known but deserves to be.

A History of the Food of Paris

Madrid

By Jim Chevallier

By Maria Paz Moreno

From Roast Mammoth to Steak Frites

A Culinary History

Paris has played a unique role in world gastronomy, influencing cooks and gourmets across the world. It has served as a focal point not only for its own cuisine, but for regional specialties from across France. For tourists, its food remains one of the great attractions of the city itself. Yet the history of this food remains largely unknown, and those who know it at all often know a piece of it—medieval food, royal food, the food of the great restaurants, and more.

“Moreno’s informative guide is an excellent preview for those visiting the city.”

A History of the Food of Paris brings together archaeology, historical records, memoirs, statutes, literature, guidebooks, news items, and other sources to paint a sweeping portrait of the city’s food from the Neanderthals to today’s bistros and food trucks.

She discusses the diverse influences that have shaped Madrid’s cuisine over the centuries, including the introduction of foods from the New World since the 16th century, the transition from famines to abundance during the second part of the 20th century, the revolution of the Michelin-starred young chefs at the beginning of the 21st century, and how madrileños’ sense of identity is built through their food.

Around the World in Eighty Wines Exploring Wine One Country at a Time

“[A] welcome salute to Australia’s largest, hungriest, thirstiest and most cosmopolitan city.” —Warren Fahey, cultural historian Sydney, famed for its setting and natural beauty, has fascinated from the day it was conceived as an end-of-the-world repository for British felons, to its current status as one of the world’s most appealing cities. This book recounts, and celebrates, the central role food has played in shaping the city’s development from the time of first human settlement to the sophisticated, open, and cosmopolitan metropolis it is today. The reader will learn of the Sydney region’s unique natural resources and come to appreciate how these shaped food habits through its pre-history and early European settlement; how its subsequent waves of immigrants enriched its food scene; its love-hate relationship with alcohol; and its markets, restaurants, and other eateries.
