Dispossession Discrimination against African American Farmers in the Age of Civil Rights pete daniel

A masterful indictment of a powerful government agency Between 1940 and 1974, the number of African American farmers fell from 681,790 to just 45,594—a drop of 93 percent. In his hard-hitting book, historian Pete Daniel analyzes this decline and chronicles black farmers’ fierce struggles to remain on the land in the face of discrimination by bureaucrats in the U.S. Department of Agriculture. He exposes the shameful fact that at the very moment civil rights laws promised to end discrimination, hundreds of thousands of black farmers lost their hold on the land as they were denied loans, information, and access to the programs essential to survival in a capital-intensive farm structure. More than a matter of neglect of these farmers and their rights, this “passive nullification” consisted of a blizzard of bureaucratic obfuscation, blatant acts of discrimination and cronyism, violence, and intimidation. Dispossession recovers a lost chapter of the black experience in the American South, presenting a counternarrative to the conventional story of the progress achieved by the civil rights movement. pete daniel has been both a professor of history and a public historian. He has served as president of the Southern Historical Association and the Organization of American Historians, and he currently lives in Washington, D.C. This is his seventh book.

The Secret World of Red Wolves The Fight to Save North America’s Other Wolf t. delene beeland

An intimate portrait of an endangered species Red wolves are shy, elusive, and misunderstood predators. Until the 1800s, they were common in the longleaf pine savannas and deciduous forests of the southeastern United States. However, habitat degradation, persecution, and interbreeding with the coyote nearly annihilated them. Today, reintroduced red wolves are found only in peninsular northeastern North Carolina within less than 1 percent of their former range. In The Secret World of Red Wolves, nature writer T. DeLene Beeland shadows the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s pioneering recovery program over the course of a year to craft an intimate portrait of the red wolf, its history, and its restoration. Her engaging exploration of this top-level predator traces the intense effort of conservation personnel to save a species that has slipped to the verge of extinction. Beeland weaves together the voices of scientists, conservationists, and local landowners while posing larger questions about human coexistence with red wolves, our understanding of what defines this animal as a distinct species, and how climate change may swamp its current habitat.

Crossroads of the Natural World Exploring North Carolina with Tom Earnhardt tom earnhardt Foreword by William G. Ross Jr.

The wild beauty of—and the challenges to—the state’s natural environment In this richly illustrated love letter to the wild places and natural wonders of North Carolina, Tom Earnhardt, writer and host of UNC-TV’s Exploring North Carolina and lifelong conservationist, seamlessly ties deep geological time and forgotten species from our distant past to the unparalleled biodiversity of today. Earnhardt shows that, with varied topography and a climate that is simultaneously subtropical, temperate, and subarctic, North Carolina is a meeting place for living things more commonly found far to the north and south. Highlighting the ways in which the state is a unique ecological crossroads, Earnhardt’s research, insightful writing, and stunning photography will both teach and inspire. Crossroads of the Natural World invites readers to engage a variety of topics, including the impacts of invasive species, the importance of forested buffers along our rivers, the role of naturalists, and the challenges facing the state in a time of climate change and sea-level rise. By sharing his own journey of more than sixty years, Earnhardt entices North Carolinians of every age to explore the breathtaking natural diversity of our state. tom earnhardt is coproducer, writer, and host of the popular UNC-TV program Exploring North Carolina. A lawyer by profession, he is a committed conservationist and environmentalist.

The Citizen Patient Reforming Health Care for the Sake of the Patient, Not the System nortin m. hadler, m.d.

Medicine in the ruins

April 2013 978-1-4696-0704-7, $28.00t Cloth 978-1-4696-0705-4, $28.00 BOOK Approx. 272 pp., 61⁄8 x 91⁄4, 7 figs., 7 tables, index

Marketing Campaign

Conflicts of interest, misrepresentation of clinical trials, hospital price fixing, and massive expenditures for procedures of dubious efficacy—these and other critical flaws leave little doubt that the current U.S. health-care system is in need of an overhaul. In this essential guide, preeminent physician Nortin Hadler urges American health-care consumers to take time to understand the existing system and to visualize what the outcome of successful reform might look like. Central to this vision is a shared understanding of the primacy of the relationship between doctor and patient. Hadler shows us that a new approach is necessary if we hope to improve the health of the populace. Rational health care, he argues, is far less expensive than the irrationality of the status quo. Taking a critical view of how medical treatment, health-care finance, and attitudes about health, medicine, and disease play out in broad social and political settings, Hadler applies his wealth of experience and insight to these pressing issues, answering important questions for citizen patients and policy makers alike. nortin m. hadler, M.D., M.A.C.P., M.A.C.R., F.A.C.O.E.M., is professor of medicine and microbiology/immunology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and attending rheumatologist at UNC Hospitals. His most recent book is Rethinking Aging: Growing Old and Living Well in an Overtreated Society.

One Place Paul Kwilecki and Four Decades of Photographs from Decatur County, Georgia paul kwilecki Edited by Tom Rankin, with Iris Tillman Hill

Photographing and writing close to home —what changes, what lasts, what matters Though artistic and ambitious, Paul Kwilecki (1928–2009) chose to remain in Bainbridge, Georgia, the small Decatur County town where he was born, raised, and ran the family’s hardware store. He had always been interested in photography and taught himself how to use a camera. Over four decades, he documented life in his community, making hundreds of masterful and intimate black-and-white prints. Kwilecki developed his visual ideas in series of photographs of high school proms, prison hog killings, shade-tree tobacco farming, factory work, church life, and the courthouse. He also wrote eloquently about the people and places he so poignantly depicted, and in this book his unique knowledge is powerfully articulated in more than 200 photographs and selected prose. Paul Kwilecki worked alone, his correspondence with important photographers his only link to the larger art world. Despite this isolation, Kwilecki’s work became widely known. “Decatur County is home,” he said, “and I know it from my special warp, having been both nourished and wounded by it.” paul kwilecki is author of Understandings: Photographs of Decatur County, Georgia. tom rankin is director of the Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University. iris tillman hill is coeditor, with Tom Rankin, of the Documentary Arts and Culture series.

Kennesaw Mountain Sherman, Johnston, and the Atlanta Campaign earl j. hess

Sherman’s march almost grinds to a stop While fighting his way toward Atlanta, William T. Sherman encountered his biggest roadblock at Kennesaw Mountain, where Joseph E. Johnston’s Army of Tennessee held a heavily fortified position. The opposing armies confronted each other from June 19 to July 3, 1864, and Sherman initially tried to outflank the Confederates. His men endured heavy rains, artillery duels, sniping, and a fierce battle at Kolb’s Farm before Sherman decided to directly attack Johnston’s position on June 27. Kennesaw Mountain tells the story of an important phase of the Atlanta campaign. Historian Earl J. Hess explains how this battle, with its combination of maneuver and combat, severely tried the patience and endurance of the common soldier and why Johnston’s strategy might have been the Confederates’ best chance to halt the Federal drive toward Atlanta. He gives special attention to the engagement at Kolb’s Farm on June 22 and Sherman’s assault on June 27. A final section explores the Confederate earthworks preserved within the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.

Remembering the Civil War Reunion and the Limits of Reconciliation caroline e. janney

From the battlefield to Gone with the Wind As early as 1865, survivors of the Civil War were acutely aware that people were purposefully shaping what would be remembered about the war and what would be omitted from the historical record. In Remembering the Civil War, Caroline E. Janney examines how the war generation—men and women, black and white, Unionists and Confederates—crafted and protected their memories of the nation’s greatest conflict. Janney maintains that the participants never fully embraced the reconciliation so famously represented in handshakes across stone walls. Instead, both Union and Confederate veterans, and most especially their respective women’s organizations, clung tenaciously to their own causes well into the twentieth century. Janney explores the subtle yet important differences between reunion and reconciliation and argues that the Unionist and Emancipationist memories of the war never completely gave way to the story Confederates told. She challenges the idea that white northerners and southerners salved their war wounds through shared ideas about race and shows that debates about slavery often proved to be among the most powerful obstacles to reconciliation. caroline e. janney is associate professor of history at Purdue University and author of Burying the Dead but Not the Past: Ladies’ Memorial Associations and the Lost Cause.

The history of a pivotal campaign

Versions of history we learn at the movies

One of the most intriguing and storied episodes of the Civil War, the 1862 Shenandoah Valley Campaign has heretofore been related only from the Confederate point of view. Moving seamlessly between tactical details and analysis of strategic significance, Peter Cozzens presents a balanced, comprehensive account of a campaign that has long been romanticized but little understood. He offers new interpretations of the campaign and the reasons for Stonewall Jackson’s success, demonstrates instances in which the mythology that has come to shroud the campaign has masked errors on Jackson’s part, and provides the first detailed appraisal of Union leadership in the Valley Campaign, with some surprising conclusions.

More than 60,000 books have been published on the Civil War. Most Americans, though, get their ideas about the war—why it was fought, what was won, what was lost—not from books but from movies, television, and other popular media. In an engaging and accessible survey, Gary W. Gallagher guides readers through the stories told in recent film and art, showing how these stories have both reflected and influenced the political, social, and racial currents of their times.

peter cozzens is an independent scholar and Foreign Service officer with the U.S. Department of State. He is author or editor of nine highly acclaimed Civil War books, including The Darkest Days of the War: The Battles of Iuka and Corinth.

Adventures on North Carolina’s most important river system

North Carolina, through the eyes of its writers

In Down the Wild Cape Fear, novelist and nonfiction writer Philip Gerard invites readers onto the fabled waters of the Cape Fear River and guides them on the 200-mile voyage from the confluence of the Deep and Haw Rivers at Mermaid Point all the way to the Cape of Fear on Bald Head Island. Accompanying the author by canoe and powerboat are a cadre of people passionate about the river, among them a river guide, a photographer, a biologist, a river keeper, and a boat captain. Historical voices also lend their wisdom to our understanding of this river, which has been a main artery of commerce, culture, settlement, and war for the entire region since it was first discovered by Verrazzano in 1524. Gerard explores the myriad environmental and political issues being played out along the waters of the Cape Fear. These include commerce and environmental stewardship, wilderness and development, suburban sprawl and the decline and renaissance of inner cities, and private rights versus the public good. philip gerard is author of three novels and five books of nonfiction including The Patron Saint of Dreams and is professor of Creative Writing at the University of North Carolina Wilmington. He lives on Whiskey Creek near the Intracoastal Waterway and sails his sloop Suspense on the Atlantic Ocean.

Volume 23: Folk Art

Volume 24: Race

edited by carol crown and cheryl rivers

edited by thomas c. holt and laurie b. green

Five centuries of southern folk art Folk art is one of the American South’s most significant areas of creative achievement, and this comprehensive yet accessible reference details that achievement from the sixteenth century through the present. This volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture explores the many forms of aesthetic expression that have characterized southern folk art, including the work of self-taught artists, as well as the South’s complex relationship to national patterns of folk art collecting. Fifty-two thematic essays examine subjects ranging from colonial portraiture, Moravian material culture, and southern folk pottery to the South’s rich quilt-making traditions, memory painting, and African American vernacular art, and 211 topical essays include profiles of major folk and self-taught artists. carol crown is First Tennessee Professor of Art History at the University of Memphis and editor of Coming Home!

Shifting dynamics of race in the South There is no denying that race is a critical issue in understanding the South. This concluding volume of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture challenges previous understandings, revealing the region’s rich, ever-expanding diversity and providing new explorations of race relations. In 36 thematic and 29 topical essays, contributors examine such subjects as the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, Japanese American incarceration, relations between African Americans and Native Americans, Chinese men adopting Mexican identities, Latino religious practices, and Vietnamese life. The essays paint a nuanced portrait of how concepts of race in the South have influenced its history, art, politics, and culture beyond the familiar binary of black and white. thomas c. holt is James Westfall Thompson Distinguished Service Professor of American and African American History at the University of Chicago and author of Children of Fire: A History of African Americans. laurie b. green is associate professor of history, women’s and gender studies, and African American studies at the University of Texas at Austin and author of Battling the Plantation Mentality: Memphis and the Black Freedom Struggle.

The Strange History of the American Quadroon Free Women of Color in the Revolutionary Atlantic World emily clark

Exploding the myth Exotic, seductive, and doomed: the antebellum mixed-race free woman of color has long operated as a metaphor for New Orleans. Commonly known as a “quadroon,” she and the city she represents rest irretrievably condemned in the popular historical imagination by the linked sins of slavery and interracial sex. However, as Emily Clark shows, the rich archives of New Orleans tell a different story. Free women of color with ancestral roots in New Orleans were as likely to marry in the 1820s as white women. And marriage, not concubinage, was the basis of their family structure. In The Strange History of the American Quadroon, Clark investigates how the narrative of the erotic colored mistress became an elaborate literary and commercial trope, persisting as a symbol that long outlived the political and cultural purposes for which it had been created. Untangling myth and memory, she presents a dramatically new and nuanced understanding of the myths and realities of New Orleans’s free women of color.

Atlanta, Cradle of the New South Race and Remembering in the Civil War’s Aftermath william a. link

Rebuilding the iconic southern city After conquering Atlanta in the summer of 1864 and occupying it for two months, Union forces laid waste to the city in November. William T. Sherman’s invasion was a pivotal moment in the history of the South and Atlanta’s rebuilding over the following fifty years came to represent the contested meaning of the Civil War itself. The war’s aftermath brought contentious transition from Old South to New for whites and African Americans alike. Historian William Link argues that this struggle defined the broader meaning of the Civil War in the modern South, with no place embodying the region’s past and future more clearly than Atlanta. Link frames the city as both exceptional—because of the incredible impact of the war there and the city’s phoenix-like postwar rise—and as a model for other southern cities. He shows how, in spite of the violent reimposition of white supremacy, freedpeople in Atlanta built a cultural, economic, and political center that helped to define black America. william a. link is Richard J. Milbauer Professor of History at the University of Florida. He is author or editor of thirteen books, including Righteous Warrior: Jesse Helms and the Rise of Modern Conservatism.

Power to the Poor Black-Brown Coalition and the Fight for Economic Justice, 1960–1974 gordon k. mantler

Anti-poverty activism and black-brown coalition

February 2013 978-0-8078-3851-8, $34.95s Cloth 978-1-4696-0806-8, $34.95 BOOK Approx. 376 pp., 61⁄8 x 91⁄4, 20 illus., notes, bibl., index

The Poor People’s Campaign of 1968 has long been overshadowed by the assassination of its architect, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the political turmoil of that year. In a major reinterpretation of civil rights and Chicano movement history, Gordon K. Mantler demonstrates how King’s unfinished crusade became the era’s most high-profile attempt at multiracial collaboration and sheds light on the interdependent relationship between racial identity and political coalition among African Americans and Mexican Americans. Mantler argues that while the fight against poverty held great potential for black-brown cooperation, such efforts also exposed the complex dynamics between the nation’s two largest minority groups. Drawing on oral histories, archives, periodicals, and FBI surveillance files, Mantler paints a rich portrait of the campaign and the larger antipoverty work from which it emerged, including the labor activism of Cesar Chavez, opposition of Black and Chicano Power to state violence in Chicago and Denver, and advocacy for Mexican American land-grant rights in New Mexico. Ultimately, Mantler challenges readers to rethink the multiracial history of the long civil rights movement and the difficulty of sustaining political coalitions. gordon k. mantler is a lecturing fellow and associate director in the Thompson Writing Program at Duke University.

From the Bullet to the Ballot The Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party and Racial Coalition Politics in Chicago jakobi williams

Civil Rights, Black Power, the Black Panthers, and the Rainbow Coalition In this comprehensive history of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party (ILBPP), Chicago native Jakobi Williams demonstrates that the city’s Black Power movement was both a response to and an extension of the city’s civil rights movement. Williams focuses on the life and violent death of Fred Hampton, a charismatic leader who served as president of the NAACP Youth Council and continued to pursue a civil rights agenda when he became chairman of the revolutionary Chicago-based Black Panther Party. Framing the story of Hampton and the ILBPP as a social and political history and using, for the first time, sealed secret police files in Chicago and interviews conducted with often reticent former members of the ILBPP, Williams explores how Hampton helped develop racial coalitions between the ILBPP and other local activists and organizations. Williams also recounts the history of the original Rainbow Coalition, created in response to Richard J. Daley’s Democratic machine, to show how the Panthers worked to create an antiracist, anticlass coalition to fight urban renewal, political corruption, and police brutality. jakobi williams is assistant professor of history at the University of Kentucky.

Radical Relations Lesbian Mothers, Gay Fathers, and Their Children in the United States since World War II daniel winunwe rivers

Changing the way we think about the American family

May 2013 978-1-4696-0718-4, $32.50s Cloth 978-1-4696-0719-1, $32.50 BOOK Approx. 304 pp., 61⁄8 x 91⁄4, 20 illus., notes, bibl., index

In Radical Relations, Daniel Winunwe Rivers offers a previously untold story of the American family: the first history of lesbian and gay parents and their children in the United States. Beginning in the postwar era, a period marked by both intense repression and dynamic change for lesbians and gay men, Rivers argues that by forging new kinds of family and childrearing relations, gay and lesbian parents have successfully challenged legal and cultural definitions of family as heterosexual. These efforts have paved the way for the contemporary focus on family and domestic rights in lesbian and gay political movements. Based on extensive archival research and 130 interviews conducted nationwide, Radical Relations includes the stories of lesbian mothers and gay fathers in the 1950s, lesbian and gay parental activist networks and custody battles, families struggling with the AIDS epidemic, and children growing up in lesbian feminist communities. Rivers also addresses changes in gay and lesbian parenthood in the 1980s and 1990s brought about by increased awareness of insemination technologies and changes in custody and adoption law. daniel winunwe rivers is associate research scholar at the Council of the Humanities at Princeton University.

Love in the Time of Revolution Transatlantic Literary Radicalism and Historical Change, 1793–1818 andrew cayton

Love as a force in society and culture In 1798, English essayist and novelist William Godwin ignited a transatlantic scandal with Memoirs of the Author of “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman.” Most controversial were the details of the romantic liaisons of Godwin’s wife, Mary Wollstonecraft, with both American Gilbert Imlay and Godwin himself. Wollstonecraft’s life and writings became central to a continuing discussion about love’s place in human society. Literary radicals argued that the cultivation of intense friendship could lead to the renovation of social and political institutions, whereas others maintained that these freethinkers were indulging their own desires with a disregard for stability and higher authority. Through correspondence and novels, Andrew Cayton finds an ideal lens to view authors, characters, and readers all debating love’s power to alter men and women in the world around them. Cayton argues for Wollstonecraft’s and Godwin’s enduring influence on fiction published in Great Britain and the United States and explores Mary Godwin Shelley’s endeavors to sustain her mother’s faith in romantic love as an engine of social change. andrew cayton, University Distinguished Professor of History at Miami University, is co-author, with Fred Anderson, of The Dominion of War: Empire and Liberty in North America, 1500–2000.

The History and Present State of Virginia

The Dividing Line Histories of William Byrd II of Westover

A New Edition with an Introduction by Susan Scott Parrish

edited by kevin joel berland

robert beverley

A fresh presentation of the foundational text While in London in 1705, Robert Beverley wrote and published The History and Present State of Virginia, one of the earliest printed histories about North America by an author born there. Like his brother-in-law William Byrd II, Beverley was a scion of Virginia’s planter elite, personally ambitious and at odds with royal governors in the colony. As a native-born American—most famously claiming “I am an Indian”—he provided English readers with the first thoroughgoing account of the province’s past, natural history, Indians, and current politics and society. In this new edition, Susan Scott Parrish situates Beverley and his History in the context of the metropolitan–provincial political and cultural issues of his day and explores the many contradictions embedded in his narrative. Parrish’s introduction and the accompanying annotation, along with a fresh transcription of the 1705 publication and a more comprehensive comparison of emendations in the 1722 edition, will open Beverley’s History to new, twenty-first-century readings by students of transatlantic history, colonialism, natural science, literature, and ethnohistory. susan scott parrish is associate professor of English at the University of Michigan and author of American Curiosity: Cultures of Natural History in the Colonial British Atlantic World.

The definitive edition of Byrd’s classic narratives After his 1728 Virginia– North Carolina boundary expedition, Virginia planter and politician William Byrd II composed two very different accounts of his adventures. The Secret History of the Line was written for private circulation, offering tales of scandalous behavior and peppered with rakish humor and satire. The History of the Dividing Line, continually revised by Byrd for decades after the expedition, was intended for the London literary market, though not published in his lifetime. Collating all extant manuscripts, Kevin Joel Berland’s landmark scholarly edition of these two histories provides wide-ranging historical and cultural contexts for both, helping to recreate the social and intellectual ethos of Byrd and his time. Byrd enriched his narratives with material appropriated from earlier authors, many of whose works were in his library—the most extensive in the American colonies. Berland identifies for the first time many of Byrd’s sources and raises the question: how reliable are histories that build silently upon antecedent texts and present borrowed material as firsthand testimony? In his analysis, Berland demonstrates the need for a new category to assess early modern history writing: the hybrid, accretional narrative. kevin joel berland is associate professor of English and comparative literature at The Pennsylvania State University.

Prospero’s America

paul w. mapp

Pacific history and the Seven Years’ War A truly continental history in both its geographic and political scope, The Elusive West and the Contest for Empire investigates eighteenth-century diplomacy involving North America and links geographic ignorance about the American West to Europeans’ grand geopolitical designs. Breaking from scholars’ traditional focus on the Atlantic world, Paul W. Mapp demonstrates the centrality of hitherto understudied western regions to early American history and shows that a Pacific focus is crucial to understanding the causes, course, and consequences of the Seven Years’ War. paul w. mapp is associate professor of history at the College of William and Mary.

“[This] book stands out for its historical intelligence and its ability to throw new light on old questions.” —London Review of Books “Deeply researched and carefully argued, this book succeeds in overcoming one of the major challenges of recent historiography: integrating multiple perspectives into a compelling narrative that favors no one viewpoint over the others.” —American Historical Review Published for the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture, Williamsburg, Virginia

Winthrop participated in a pan-European network of natural philosophers who believed alchemy could improve the human condition and hasten Christ’s Second Coming. Woodward demonstrates the influence of Winthrop and his philosophy on New England’s cultural formation: its settlement, economy, religious toleration, Indian relations, medical practice, witchcraft prosecution, and imperial diplomacy. Prospero’s America reconceptualizes the significance of early modern science in shaping New England hand-in-hand with Puritanism and politics. walter w. woodward is Connecticut state historian and associate professor of history at the University of Connecticut.

Josephus Daniels His Life and Times lee a. craig

From North Carolina power broker to Woodrow Wilson’s right-hand man

May 2013 978-1-4696-0695-8, $35.00t Cloth 978-1-4696-0696-5, $35.00 BOOK Approx. 592 pp., 61⁄8 x 91⁄4, 26 illus., notes, bibl., index

As a longtime leader of the Democratic Party and key member of Woodrow Wilson’s cabinet, Josephus Daniels was one of the most influential progressive politicians in the country, and as secretary of the navy during the First World War, he became one of the most important men in the world. Before that, Daniels revolutionized the newspaper industry in the South, forever changing the relationship between politics and the news media. Lee A. Craig, an expert on economic history, delves into Daniels’s extensive archive to inform this nuanced and eminently readable biography, following Daniels’s rise to power in North Carolina and chronicling his influence on twentiethcentury politics. A man of great contradictions, Daniels—an ardent prohibitionist, free trader, and Free Silverite—made a fortune in private industry yet served as a persistent critic of unregulated capitalism. He championed progressive causes like the graded public school movement and antitrust laws even as he led North Carolina’s white supremacy movement. Craig pulls no punches in his definitive biography of this political powerhouse. lee a. craig is Alumni Distinguished Professor of Economics at North Carolina State University. He is author of six books and numerous scholarly articles, essays, and reviews on U.S. and European economic history.

James J. Kilpatrick

Racism in the Nation’s Service

Salesman for Segregation

Government Workers and the Color Line in Woodrow Wilson’s America

william p. hustwit

A leading conservative voice of the twentieth century James J. Kilpatrick was a nationally known television personality, journalist, and columnist whose conservative voice rang out loudly and widely through the twentieth century. As editor of the Richmond News Leader, writer for the National Review, debater in the “Point/Counterpoint” portion of CBS’s 60 Minutes, and supporter of conservative political candidates like Barry Goldwater, Kilpatrick had many platforms for his race-based brand of southern conservatism. In James J. Kilpatrick: Salesman for Segregation, William Hustwit delivers a comprehensive study of Kilpatrick’s importance to the civil rights era and explores how his protracted resistance to both desegregation and egalitarianism culminated in an enduring form of conservatism that revealed a nation’s unease with racial change. Relying on archival sources, including Kilpatrick’s personal papers, Hustwit provides an invaluable look at what Gunnar Myrdal called the race problem in the “white mind” at the intersection of the postwar conservative and civil rights movements. Growing out of a painful family history and strongly conservative political cultures, Kilpatrick’s personal values and self-interested opportunism contributed to America’s ongoing struggles with race and reform. william p. hustwit is visiting assistant professor of history at the University of Mississippi.

eric s. yellin

Jim Crow comes to Washington Between the 1880s and 1910s, thousands of African Americans passed civil service exams and became employed in the executive offices of the federal government. However, by 1920, promotions to well-paying federal jobs had nearly vanished for black workers. Eric S. Yellin argues that the Wilson administration’s successful 1913 drive to segregate the federal government was a pivotal episode in the age of progressive politics. Yellin investigates how the enactment of this policy, based on progressives’ demands for whiteness in government, imposed a color line on American opportunity and implicated Washington in the economic limitation of African Americans for decades to come. Using vivid accounts of the struggles and protests of African American government employees, Yellin reveals the racism at the heart of the era’s reform politics. He illuminates the nineteenth-century world of black professional labor and social mobility in Washington, D.C., and uncovers the Wilson administration’s progressive justifications for unraveling that world. From the hopeful days following emancipation to the white-supremacist “normalcy” of the 1920s, Yellin traces the competing political ideas, politicians, and ordinary government workers who created “federal segregation.” eric s. yellin is assistant professor of history and American studies at the University of Richmond.

The Cursillo Movement in America Catholics, Protestants, and Fourth-Day Spirituality kristy nabhan-warren

The spirit of De Colores The internationally growing Cursillo movement, or “short course in Christianity,” founded in 1944 by Spanish Catholic lay practitioners, has become popular among American Catholics and Protestants alike. This lay-led weekend experience helps participants recommit to and live their faith. Emphasizing how American Christians have privileged the individual religious experience and downplayed denominational and theological differences in favor of a common identity as renewed people of faith, Kristy Nabhan-Warren focuses on cursillistas—those who have completed a Cursillo weekend—to show how their experiences are a touchstone for understanding these trends in post-1960s American Christianity. Drawing on extensive ethnographic fieldwork as well as historical research, Nabhan-Warren shows the importance of Latino Catholics in the spread of the Cursillo movement. Cursillistas’ stories, she argues, guide us toward a new understanding of contemporary Christian identities, inside and outside U.S. borders, and of the importance of globalizing American religious boundaries.

From Coveralls to Zoot Suits The Lives of Mexican American Women on the World War II Home Front

Cooking in Other Women’s Kitchens Domestic Workers in the South, 1865–1960

elizabeth r. escobedo

rebecca sharpless

“Rosita the Riveter” and her legacy

2012 Bennett H. Wall Award, Southern Historical Association

During World War II, unprecedented employment avenues opened up for women and minorities in U.S. defense industries at the same time that massive population shifts and the war challenged Americans to rethink notions of race. At this extraordinary historical moment, Mexican American women found new means to exercise control over their lives in the home, workplace, and nation. In From Coveralls to Zoot Suits, Elizabeth R. Escobedo explores how, as war workers and volunteers, dance hostesses and zoot suiters, respectable young ladies and rebellious daughters, these young women used wartime conditions to serve the United States in its time of need and to pursue their own desires. But even after the war, as Escobedo shows, Mexican American women had to continue challenging workplace inequities and confronting family and communal resistance to their broadening public presence. Highlighting seldom heard voices of the “Greatest Generation,” Escobedo examines these contradictions within Mexican families and their communities, exploring the impact of youth culture, outside employment, and family relations on the lives of women whose home-front experiences and everyday life choices would fundamentally alter the history of a generation. elizabeth r. escobedo is assistant professor of history

A 2011 Choice Outstanding Academic Title

A new view of African American women’s work lives As African American women left the plantation economy behind, many entered domestic service in southern cities and towns. Cooking was one of the primary jobs they performed, feeding generations of white families and, in the process, profoundly shaping southern foodways and culture. Rebecca Sharpless argues that, in the face of discrimination, long workdays, and low wages, African American cooks worked to assert measures of control over their own lives. As employment opportunities expanded in the twentieth century, most African American women chose to leave cooking for more lucrative and less oppressive manufacturing, clerical, or professional positions. Through letters, autobiography, and oral history, Sharpless evokes women’s voices from slavery to the open economy, examining their lives at work and at home. rebecca sharpless is associate professor of history at Texas Christian University. She is author of Fertile Ground, Narrow Choices: Women on Texas Cotton Farms.

Creating a Common Table in TwentiethCentury Argentina Doña Petrona, Women, and Food rebekah e. pite

Argentina’s culinary superstar

Doña Petrona C. de Gandulfo (c. 1896–1992) reigned as Argentina’s preeminent domestic and culinary expert from the 1930s through the 1980s. An enduring culinary icon thanks to her magazine columns, radio programs, and television shows, she was likely second only to Eva Perón in terms of the fame she enjoyed the and adulation she received. Her cookbook garnered tremendous popularity and became one of the three best-selling books in Argentina. Doña Petrona capitalized on and contributed to the growing appreciation for women’s domestic roles as the Argentine economy expanded and fell into periodic crises. Drawing on a wide range of materials, including her own interviews with Doña Petrona’s inner circle and with everyday women and men, Rebekah E. Pite provides a lively social history of twentieth-century Argentina, as exemplified through the fascinating story of Doña Petrona and the homemakers to whom she dedicated her career. Pite’s narrative illuminates the important role of food­—its consumption, preparation, and production—in daily life, class formation, and national identity. By connecting issues of gender, domestic work, and economic development, Pite brings into focus the critical importance of women’s roles as consumers, cooks, and community builders. rebekah e. pite is assistant professor of history at Lafayette College.

Native and National in Brazil

From Chicaza to Chickasaw

Indigeneity after Independence

The European Invasion and the Transformation of the Mississippian World, 1540–1715

tracy devine guzmán

Native peoples and national belonging How do the lives of indigenous peoples relate to the romanticized role of “Indians” in Brazilian history, politics, and cultural production? Native and National in Brazil charts this enigmatic relationship from the sixteenth century to the present, focusing on the dominant national imaginary in the postindependence period and Native peoples’ ongoing work to decolonize it. Engaging issues ranging from sovereignty, citizenship, and national security to the revolutionary potential of art, sustainable development, and the gendering of ethnic differences, Tracy Devine Guzmán argues that the tensions between popular renderings of “Indianness” and lived indigenous experience are critical to the unfolding of Brazilian nationalism, on the one hand, and the growth of the Brazilian indigenous movement, on the other. Devine Guzmán suggests that the “indigenous question” now posed by Brazilian indigenous peoples themselves—how to be Native and national at the same time—can help us to rethink national belonging in accordance with the protection of human rights, the promotion of social justice, and the consolidation of democratic governance for indigenous and nonindigenous citizens alike. tracy devine guzmán is associate professor of Latin American studies, Portuguese, and Spanish at the University of Miami.

robbie ethridge 2011 James Mooney Award, Southern Anthropological Society

The collapse of an indigenous world heralds the beginning of a new historical era In this sweeping regional history, anthropologist Robbie Ethridge traces the metamorphosis of the Native South from first contact in 1540 to the dawn of the eighteenth century, when indigenous people no longer lived in a purely Indian world but rather on the edge of an expanding European empire. Using a framework that Ethridge calls the “Mississippian shatter zone” to explicate these tumultuous times, From Chicaza to Chickasaw examines the European invasion, the collapse of the precontact Mississippian world, and the restructuring of discrete chiefdoms into coalescent Native societies in a colonial world. The story of one group—the Chickasaws—is closely followed through this period. robbie ethridge is professor of anthropology at the University of Mississippi.

Black Slaves, Indian Masters Slavery, Emancipation, and Citizenship in the Native American South

Recognition, Sovereignty Struggles, and Indigenous Rights in the United States

barbara krauthamer

A Sourcebook

Slavery in the Choctaw and Chickasaw nations

edited by amy e. den ouden and jean m. o’brien

From the late eighteenth century through the end of the Civil War, Choctaw and Chickasaw Indians bought, sold, and owned Africans and African Americans as slaves, a fact that persisted after the tribes’ removal from the Deep South to Indian Territory. The tribes formulated racial and gender ideologies that justified this practice and marginalized free black people in the Indian nations well after the Civil War and slavery had ended. Through the end of the nineteenth century, ongoing conflicts among Choctaw, Chickasaw, and U.S. lawmakers left untold numbers of former slaves and their descendants in the two Indian nations without citizenship in either the Indian nations or the United States. In this groundbreaking study, Barbara Krauthamer rewrites the history of southern slavery, emancipation, race, and citizenship to reveal the centrality of Native American slaveholders and the black people they enslaved. Krauthamer’s examination of slavery and emancipation highlights the ways Indian women’s gender roles changed with the arrival of slavery and changed again after emancipation and reveals complex dynamics of race that shaped the lives of black people and Indians both before and after removal. barbara krauthamer is assistant professor of history at the University of Massachusetts–Amherst.

Myths of Demilitarization in Postrevolutionary Mexico, 1920–1960

From “coolies” to citizens

thomas rath

In the mid-nineteenth century, Cuba’s infamous “coolie” trade brought well over 100,000 Chinese indentured laborers to its shores. Though subjected to abominable conditions, they were followed during subsequent decades by smaller numbers of merchants, craftsmen, and free migrants searching for better lives far from home. In a comprehensive, vibrant history that draws deeply on Chinese- and Spanish-language sources in both China and Cuba, Kathleen López explores the transition of the Chinese from indentured to free migrants, the formation of transnational communities, and the eventual incorporation of the Chinese into the Cuban citizenry during the first half of the twentieth century. Chinese Cubans shows how Chinese migration, intermarriage, and assimilation are central to Cuban history and national identity during a key period of transition from slave to wage labor and from colony to nation. On a broader level, López draws out implications for issues of race, national identity, and transnational migration, especially along the Pacific Rim.

At the end of the Mexican Revolution in 1920, Mexico’s large, rebellious army dominated national politics. By the 1940s, Mexico’s Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) was led by a civilian president and claimed to have depoliticized the army and achieved the bloodless pacification of the Mexican countryside through land reform, schooling, and indigenismo. However, historian Thomas Rath argues, Mexico’s celebrated demilitarization was more protracted, conflict-ridden, and incomplete than most accounts assume. Civilian governments deployed troops as a police force, often aimed at political suppression, while officers meddled in provincial politics, engaged in corruption, and crafted official history, all against a backdrop of sustained popular protest and debate. Using newly available materials from military, intelligence, and diplomatic archives, Rath weaves together an analysis of national and regional politics, military education, conscription, veteran policy, and popular protest. In doing so, he challenges dominant interpretations of successful, top-down demilitarization and questions the image of the post-1940 PRI regime as strong, stable, and legitimate. Rath also shows how the army’s suppression of students and guerrillas in the 1960s and 1970s, and the more recent militarization of policing, have long roots in Mexican history. thomas rath is lecturer in the history of Latin America, University College London.

One of the finest golf courses in America in the early 1900s was the revered Pinehurst No. 2, designed by the legendary Donald Ross and first opened in 1907. Physically and mentally demanding, the course gave players options on every hole and required them to envision and execute recovery shots from the sandy perimeters and the pine forests as well as think creatively around the intricate greens. As a result, No. 2 became a favorite of the nation’s top amateurs and professionals. Unfortunately, a modernization of the course over the last four decades stripped it of much of its character. In The Golden Age of Pinehurst, Lee Pace chronicles the breathtaking restoration of No. 2 from its recent slick and monochromatic presentation back to a natural potpourri of hardpan sand, wire grass, and Sandhills pine needles. The restoration job was entrusted to the design team of Bill Coore and Ben Crenshaw, whose courses have been heralded for their sympathetic use of the ground and the mental and physical challenges they present to golfers. Their understanding of golf history and the work of Donald Ross, as well as their personal experiences in Pinehurst dating to the 1960s, gave them an ideal perspective for such a challenging task. The restored No. 2—accessible for amateur play, yet challenging enough for the professional—once again stands apart for its beauty, strategic appeal, and Old World flavor. lee pace has written about golf and Pinehurst for over twenty-five years and is author of The Spirit of Pinehurst.

A Theory of Craft

The Dynamic Decade

Function and Aesthetic Expression

Creating the Sustainable Campus for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, 2001–2011

howard risatti Foreword by Kenneth R. Trapp

david r. godschalk and jonathan b. howes

How to define craft, and why it matters What is craft? How is it different from fine art or design? In A Theory of Craft, Howard Risatti examines these issues by comparing handmade ceramics, glass, metalwork, weaving, and furniture to painting, sculpture, photography, and machinemade design from Bauhaus to the Memphis Group. He describes craft as uniquely blending function with a deeper expression of human values that transcend culture, time, and space. Craft must articulate a role for itself in contemporary society, says Risatti; otherwise it will be absorbed by fine art or design, and its singular approach to understanding the world will be lost. howard risatti is professor emeritus of art history at Virginia Commonwealth University. His four previous books include Skilled Work: American Craft in the Renwick Gallery and Postmodern Perspectives: Issues in Contemporary Art. “Destined to become required reading for undergraduate and graduate courses in art and craft history. . . .

A plan for the university of tomorrow The Dynamic Decade tells the story of the sweeping makeover of the 200-yearold campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Six million square feet of buildings were constructed and a million square feet of historic buildings were renovated during one vibrant ten-year period. This massive growth required bold thinking and a vision for combining historic preservation, green building, and long-range development. A statewide bond issue, award-winning designs, and unprecedented coordination with the town made the vision a reality. Written by authors who held major planning roles, supplemented by interviews of key players, and lavishly illustrated with color photographs and maps, this comprehensive account offers valuable lessons to all concerned with sustainable university growth. david r. godschalk is Stephen Baxter Professor Emeritus in the Department of City and Regional Planning at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Henry Wallace’s 1948 Presidential Campaign and the Future of Postwar Liberalism thomas w. devine

The complex history of the Progressive Party In the presidential campaign of 1948, Henry Wallace set out to challenge the conventional wisdom of his time, blaming the United States, instead of the Soviet Union, for the Cold War, denouncing the popular Marshall Plan, and calling for an end to segregation. In addition, he argued that domestic fascism—rather than international communism—posed the primary threat to the nation. He even welcomed Communists into his campaign, admiring their commitment to peace. Focusing on what Wallace himself later considered his campaign’s most important aspect, the troubled relationship between non-Communist progressives like himself and members of the American Communist Party, Thomas W. Devine demonstrates that such an alliance was not only untenable but, from the perspective of the American Communists, undesirable. Rather than romanticizing the political culture of the Popular Front, Devine provides a detailed account of the Communists’ self-destructive behavior throughout the campaign and chronicles the frustrating challenges that non-Communist progressives faced in trying to sustain a movement that critiqued American Cold War policies and championed civil rights for African Americans without becoming a sounding board for pro-Soviet propaganda. thomas w. devine is professor of history at California State University, Northridge.

For the Freedom of Her Race Black Women and Electoral Politics in Illinois, 1877–1932 lisa g. materson 2009 Illinois State Historical Society Book Award

Migrating women become active in midwestern and national party politics Grounded in the rich history of Chicago politics, For the Freedom of Her Race tells a wide-ranging story about black women’s involvement in southern, midwestern, and national politics. Examining the oppressive decades between the end of Reconstruction in 1877 and the election of Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1932—a period that is often described as the nadir of black life in America—Lisa Materson shows that as African American women migrated beyond the reach of southern white supremacists, they became active voters, canvassers, suffragists, campaigners, and lobbyists, mobilizing to gain a voice in national party politics and elect representatives who would push for the enforcement of the Reconstruction Amendments in the South. lisa g. materson is associate professor of history at the University of California at Davis.

Sexual Injustice

No Sympathy for the Devil

Supreme Court Decisions from Griswold to Roe

Christian Pop Music and the Transformation of American Evangelicalism

marc stein

david w. stowe

2011 Choice Outstanding Academic Title

Rock and religion in America

A transformative era of the Supreme Court

In this cultural history of evangelical Christianity and popular music, David Stowe demonstrates how mainstream rock of the 1960s and 1970s has influenced conservative evangelical Christianity through the development of Christian pop music. The chart-topping, spiritually inflected music created a space in popular culture for talk of Jesus, God, and Christianity, thus lessening for baby boomers and their children the stigma associated with religion while helping to fill churches and create new modes of worship. Stowe shows how evangelicals’ increasing acceptance of Christian pop music ultimately has reinforced a variety of conservative cultural, economic, theological, and political messages.

Focusing on six major Supreme Court cases during the 1960s and 1970s, Marc Stein examines the generally liberal rulings on birth control, abortion, interracial marriage, and obscenity in Griswold, Eisenstadt, Roe, Loving, and Fanny Hill alongside a profoundly conservative ruling on homosexuality in Boutilier. In the same era in which the Court recognized special marital, reproductive, and heterosexual rights and privileges, it also upheld an immigration statute that classified homosexuals as “psychopathic personalities.” Stein shows how a diverse set of influential journalists, judges, and scholars translated the Court’s language about marital and reproductive rights into bold statements about sexual freedom and equality. marc stein is professor of history and of gender, sexuality, and women’s studies at York University in Toronto. He is author of Rethinking the Gay and Lesbian Movement and City of Sisterly and Brotherly Loves: Lesbian and Gay Philadelphia. He is editorin-chief of the award-winning Encyclopedia of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender History in America.

The search for vindication One of the South’s most illustrious military leaders, Wade Hampton III was for a time the commander of all Lee’s cavalry and at the end of the war was the highestranking Confederate cavalry officer. He also suffered devastating losses in his family and personal life. Rod Andrew’s critical biography sheds light on his central role during Reconstruction as a conservative white leader, governor, U.S. senator, and Redeemer; his heroic image in the minds of white southerners; and his positions and apparent contradictions on race and the role of African Americans in the New South. Andrew also shows that Hampton’s tragic past explains how he emerged in his own day as a largerthan-life symbol—of national reconciliation as well as southern defiance. rod andrew jr. is professor of history at Clemson University and a colonel in the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. He is author of Long Gray Lines: The Southern Military School Tradition, 1839–1915. “Both sensitive and, when it is called for, unsparing.” —Journal of American History Civil War America

The border clashes preceding the war During the 1840s and 1850s, a dangerous ferment afflicted the North-South border region, pitting the slave states of Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, and Missouri against the free states of New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois. Aspects of this struggle—the underground railroad, enforcement of the fugitive slave laws, mob actions, and sectional politics—are well known as parts of other stories. Here, Stanley Harrold explores the border struggle itself, the dramatic incidents that comprised it, and its role in the complex dynamics leading to the Civil War. stanley harrold is professor of history at South Carolina State University and author of numerous books on the antislavery movement and the Civil War era. “Should immediately be standard reading for all historians of antebellum America—North, South, or in between.” —Journal of Southern History Civil War America

The boon and bane of irregular warfare While the Civil War is famous for epic battles involving massive armies engaged in conventional warfare, A Savage Conflict is the first work to treat guerrilla warfare as critical to understanding the course and outcome of the Civil War. Daniel Sutherland argues that irregular warfare took a large toll on the Confederate war effort by weakening support for state and national governments and diminishing the trust citizens had in their officials to protect them. daniel e. sutherland is Distinguished Professor of History at the University of Arkansas. He is author or editor of thirteen books, including Guerrillas, Unionists, and Violence on the Confederate Home Front.

During the Civil War, some Confederates sought to prove the distinctiveness of the southern people and to legitimate their desire for a separate national existence through the creation of a uniquely southern literature and culture. Michael Bernath follows the activities of a group of southern writers, thinkers, editors, publishers, educators, and ministers— whom he labels Confederate cultural nationalists—in order to trace the rise and fall of a cultural movement dedicated to liberating the South from its longtime dependence on Northern books, periodicals, and teachers. By analyzing the motives driving the struggle for Confederate intellectual independence, by charting its wartime accomplishments, and by assessing its failures, Bernath makes provocative arguments about the nature of Confederate nationalism, life within the Confederacy, and the perception of southern cultural distinctiveness.

Almighty God Created the Races

Schooling the Freed People

Christianity, Interracial Marriage, and American Law

Teaching, Learning, and the Struggle for Black Freedom, 1861–1876

fay botham

ronald e. butchart

How religion shaped legal limits on love and marriage

2011 Outstanding Book Award, History of Education Society

In this fascinating cultural history of interracial marriage and its legal regulation in the United States, Fay Botham argues that religion—specifically, Protestant and Catholic beliefs about marriage and race—had a significant effect on legal decisions concerning miscegenation and marriage in the century following the Civil War. She contends that the white southern Protestant notion that God “dispersed” the races and the American Catholic emphasis on human unity and common origins point to ways that religion influenced the course of litigation and illuminate the religious bases for Christian racist and antiracist movements.

Honorable Mention, 2011 Avery O. Craven Award, Organization of American Historians

fay botham is visiting assistant professor of religious studies and American studies at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. She is coeditor of Race, Religion, Region: Landscapes of Encounter in the American West. “Breaks new ground and broadens our understanding of the legal prohibition of interracial marriage. . . . A fresh and welcome approach.” —Journal of American History “An important contribution to the scholarship on race and religion in America.” —Journal of Religion

2012 William A. Owens Award, University of Georgia Research Foundation

The rich, complex history of freedmen’s teachers Conventional wisdom holds that freedmen’s education was largely the work of privileged, single white northern women motivated by evangelical beliefs and abolitionism. Backed by pathbreaking research, Ronald E. Butchart’s Schooling the Freed People shatters this notion. The most comprehensive quantitative study of the origins of black education in freedom ever undertaken, this definitive book on freedmen’s teachers in the South is an outstanding contribution to social history and our understanding of African American education. ronald e. butchart is professor of history and education and affiliate faculty in the Institute for African American Studies at the University of Georgia. He is a leading authority on the history of African American education.

Native People and the Problem of Wealth in American History

A Social History of the United States Indian Service, 1869–1933

alexandra harmon

cathleen d. cahill

Controversy over the moral implications of American Indian wealth

2011 Labriola Center American Indian National Book Award

Long before lucrative tribal casinos sparked controversy, Native Americans amassed other wealth that provoked intense debate about the desirability, morality, and compatibility of Indian and non-Indian economic practices. Alexandra Harmon examines seven such instances of Indian affluence and the dilemmas they presented both for Native Americans and for Euro-Americans—dilemmas rooted in the colonial origins of the modern American economy. Harmon’s study not only compels us to look beyond stereotypes of greedy whites and poor Indians, but also convincingly demonstrates that Indians deserve a prominent place in American economic history and in the history of American ideas.

The agency and its Indigenous employees

alexandra harmon is professor of American Indian studies at the University of Washington. She is editor of The Power of Promises: Perspectives on Northwest Indian Treaties and author of Indians in the Making: Ethnic Relations and Indian Identities around Puget Sound. “A radically new way to understand twentieth-century Indian history.” —Journal of American History “[A] landmark in Native American history.” —Western Historical Quarterly

Established in 1824, the United States Indian Service (USIS), now known as the Bureau of Indian Affairs, was the agency responsible for carrying out U.S. treaty and trust obligations to American Indians, but it also sought to “civilize” and assimilate them. In Federal Fathers and Mothers, Cathleen Cahill offers the first in-depth social history of the agency during the height of its assimilation efforts. Cahill shows how the USIS pursued a strategy of intimate colonialism, using employees as surrogate parents and model families in order to shift Native Americans’ allegiances from tribal kinship networks to Euro-American familial structures and, ultimately, the U.S. government. cathleen d. cahill is associate professor of history at the University of New Mexico.

In The Language of the Heart, Trysh Travis explores the rich cultural history of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and its offshoots and the larger “recovery movement” that has grown out of them. Moving from AA’s beginnings in the mid-1930s as a men’s fellowship that met in church basements to the thoroughly commercialized addiction treatment centers of today, Travis chronicles the development of recovery and examines its relationship to the broad American tradition of self-help, highlighting the roles that gender, mysticism, and bibliotherapy have played in that development. trysh travis is associate professor of women’s studies at the University of Florida. She helped to found and now edits Points: The Blog of the Alcohol and Drugs History Society.
