FLORIDA QUINCENTENNIAL BOOKS In April 1513, Juan Ponce de León arrived on Florida’s east coast. He led the first European exploration of southern North America and is responsible for naming the peninsula La Florida. While our state’s geologic history is approximately 700 million years old and its material history dates back more than 12,000 years to the American Indians who first lived here, the Spanish arrival in La Florida marked a new era. The peoples and cultures that came together under Florida’s first flag laid the groundwork for what would eventually become the United States. Under the French, British, Confederate, and American flags that followed, Florida became home to many: Protestant Huguenots and Jewish Americans, Black Seminoles and WWII veterans, mermaids and martyrs of the Civil Rights movement.

Beginning in 2013, celebrations like Viva Florida 500 have been commemorating the arrival of Ponce de León in La Florida and recognizing the many diverse cultures that comprise our state and impact its rich history. These ceremonies have continued into 2015, the 450th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied Europeanestablished city in the continental United States. Joining in the celebration of these significant milestones and honoring the people, places, and unique history of our state, the University Press of Florida is pleased to designate the Florida history and culture titles published in 2013–2015 as Florida Quincentennial Books. Look for these books in the following pages and celebrate with us. 1920s

Embracing Cuba Byron Motley
Stunning photographs from the once-forbidden island "Words alone do not do Cuba justice. They depict only fragments of her mystery and beauty, her strength and fragility, her spirit and song. And so I turn to my camera . . .” —from the introduction, Embracing Cuba
“Motley’s images of Cuba’s people, arts, design, and public life are remarkable.”—Ellen M. Harrington, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences “One can immediately look at Motley’s photographs and feel the spirit of the Cuban people.” —Gil Garcetti, UNESCO-IHE cultural ambassador
Intrigued by tales of his parents’ long-ago journey to the pre-revolutionary “Pearl of the Antilles,” award-winning photographer Byron Motley traveled to Cuba more than a decade ago and instantly fell in love. Year after year he has returned with his camera to explore its vistas, its people, and its spirit. Forgoing the political imagery that has dominated American media, Motley highlights the many ways in which Cubans retain and nourish their zest for life despite the scarcity of every day. Through his vivid photographs, readers discover the real Cuba: its heart-stopping architecture and infectious energy, its cars seemingly teleported from the past, its love of baseball so fierce as to be nearly religious, the joy of community, and the unexpected juxtapositions of life in the last bastion of communism in the Western world. Even before the easing of travel restrictions, Motley’s personal relationships with key dignitaries provided him with unprecedented access in Havana, allowing him to capture the allure, the mystique, and the vibrant essence of Cuba.
“These beautiful photographs bring back many memories of Cuba—my people, my childhood, and so many beautiful moments that passed growing up in my beloved land.”—Yasiel Puig, Los Angeles Dodgers all-star outfielder “A work of heart and soul.”—Richard Schweid, author of Che’s Chevrolet, Fidel’s Oldsmobile Photography September 224 pp. | 10 x 8 180 color photos ISBN 978-0-8130-6115-3 Cloth $34.95
BYRON MOTLEY is coauthor of Ruling Over Monarchs, Giants, and Stars: True Tales of Breaking Barriers, Umpiring Baseball Legends, and Wild Adventures in the Negro Leagues. His photographs have been published in the Los Angeles Times, New York Daily News, Vanity Fair, and the Advocate.

Havana Hardball Spring Training, Jackie Robinson, and the Cuban League César Brioso
Relive the tumultuous preseason before Robinson broke the color barrier “An in-depth look at a pivotal time in baseball history.”—Lou Hernández, author of Baseball’s Great Hispanic Pitchers “Set against the backdrop of Old Havana, Brioso has given us an ode to a memorable season when baseball’s past and future came together.”—Tim Wendel, author of Summer of ’68: The Season That Changed Baseball, and America, Forever “Brioso brings back to life the era of pre-revolutionary professional winter league action.”—Peter C. Bjarkman, author of A History of Cuban Baseball, 1864–2006 In February 1947, the most memorable season in the history of the Cuban League finished with a dramatic series win by underdog Almendares against their rival, Habana. As the celebration spread through the streets of Havana and across Cuba, the Brooklyn Dodgers arrived on the island to begin spring training. One of the minor league players who made the trip was Jackie Robinson. Sports & Recreation/Baseball/History September 312 pp. | 6 x 9 | 25 b/w photos ISBN 978-0-8130-6116-0 | Cloth $24.95
He was on the verge of making his major-league debut in the United States, an event that would fundamentally change sports—and America—forever. To avoid harassment from the white crowds during this critical preseason, the Dodgers relocated their spring training to Cuba, where black and white teammates had played side by side since 1900. It was also during this time that Major League Baseball was trying its hardest to bring the “outlaw” Cuban League under the control of organized baseball. As the Cubans fought to stay independent, Robinson worked to earn a roster spot on the Dodgers in the face of discrimination from his own teammates. Havana Hardball captures the excitement of the Cuban League’s greatest pennant race and the anticipation of the looming challenge to MLB’s color barrier. Illuminating one of the sport’s most pivotal seasons, veteran journalist César Brioso brings together a rich mix of worlds as the heyday of Latino baseball converged with one of the most socially meaningful events in U.S. history. CÉSAR BRIOSO is a digital producer and former baseball editor for USA TODAY Sports. In his 25 years as a sports journalist, he has written for the Miami Herald and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

Pickled, Fried, and Fresh Bert Gill’s Southern Flavors Bert Gill with Erika Nelson
A pioneer in the local food movement shares his southern kitchen and bold recipes “Genuine and generous, Gill brings a big city perspective with passion and understanding of the importance of North Florida foodways.”—Matt Jamie, founder, Bourbon Barrel Foods “Gill’s commitment to local food and culture is shown in his book’s superior knowledge of locally available ingredients and the role food plays in our lives beyond sustenance.”—Jack Payne, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida “Gill’s creations are a study in contrasts—they have rural southern roots and yet are urbane. These easy to follow and delicious recipes bring Bert Gill’s fresh Florida epicurean delights home.”—Pegeen Hanrahan, former mayor, Gainesville, Florida “Fresh and engaging. Whether you’re a culinary novice or a seasoned cook, you’ll find something here that strikes your fancy.”—Nancy White, food writer, Florida Times-Union
Pickled, Fried, and Fresh offers a view of the local food movement from the kitchen of a working Florida chef. Bert Gill’s influence extends far beyond his inventive menus. He is a role model for chefs and home cooks who want to connect deeply with their region and communities by relying on seasonal food from local farmers.
A Florida Quincentennial Book 176 pp. | 7 1/4 x 9 1/4 | 60 color illus. ISBN 978-0-8130-6148-1 | Printed Case $26.95

His cookbook represents how Florida chefs are using local ingredients to create their own exciting niche in southern cuisine. Best of all, Gill’s recipes include notes and tips to help readers master fundamental cooking techniques and bring his place-centered vision to their own communities.

The Life and Crimes of Railroad Bill Legendary African American Desperado Larry L. Massey
Ride, ride, ride—The true story of America’s most infamous black outlaw “Fascinating. Massey brings to life the stories and mysteries surrounding this legendary figure of the nineteenth-century Southeast and shows how the outlaw has influenced our cultural heritage.”—Susan Reynolds, associate editor, Alabama Heritage “A compelling and highly readable account of the life of a notorious figure in Florida and Alabama history and how he became the subject of legends and a folk ballad that is still sung today.”—John Burrison, editor of Storytellers: Folktales and Legends from the South “Gives us a glimpse of how the early railroads—the heart of everyday life at the turn of twentieth century—set the stage for the dramatic exploits of desperate criminals such as Railroad Bill.”—Thomas E. McMillan Jr., Escambia County Historical Society History/Biography September 192 pp. | 5 ½ x 8 ½ | 13 b/w photos, 3 maps ISBN 978-0-8130-6120-7 | Cloth $21.95
For more than two years, Railroad Bill eluded sheriffs, private detectives hired by the L&N line, and bounty hunters who traveled across the country to match guns with the legendary desperado. The African American outlaw was wanted on multiple charges of robbery and murder, and rumor had it that he stole from the rich to give to the poor. He terrorized busy train lines from east of Mobile to the Florida Panhandle, but as soon as the lawmen got close, he disappeared into the bayous and pine forests—until one day his luck ran out, and he was gunned down inside a general store in Atmore, Alabama. Today, Railroad Bill is the subject of many folk songs popularized by singers such as Paul McCartney, Taj Mahal, Gillian Welch, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliot. But who was he? Where did he come from? What events led to his murderous spree? And why did some view him as a hero? In Railroad Bill, Larry Massey separates fact from myth and teases out elusive truths from tall tales to ultimately reveal the man behind the bandit’s mask. LARRY L. MASSEY is an independent writer and researcher living in Mobile, Alabama, and DeLand, Florida. His great-great-grandfather once worked at Bluff Springs turpentine mill with Railroad Bill.

The Allure of Immortality An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet Lyn Millner
Visionary or villain, savior or two-bit charlatan? “A fascinating look at the American search for meaning and ultimate answers. Millner writes with grace and makes history an adventure.”—Dan Wakefield, author of New York in the Fifties “Teed may have wanted a shiny new world, but what Millner provides is a guide to an old lost one, a picture of a vanished century when science, religion, journalism, and social movements collided in an unending, and totally fascinating, brawl.”—Madeleine Blais, author of In These Girls, Hope is a Muscle “Those seeking an understanding of what makes otherwise sensible individuals willing to give up everything in service of the apparently outlandish notions of a charismatic true believer like Teed will find this carefully researched volume satisfying and memorable.”—Les Standiford, author of Last Train to Paradise For five days in December 1908 the body of Cyrus Teed lay in a bathtub at a beach house just south of Fort Myers, Florida. His followers, the Koreshans, waited for signs that he was coming back to life. They watched hieroglyphics emerge on his skin and observed what looked like the formation of a third arm. They saw his belly fall and rise with breath, even though his swollen tongue sealed his mouth. As his corpse turned black, they declared that their leader was transforming into the Egyptian god Horus.

Teed was “illuminated,” a charismatic and controversial guru. At the turn of the twentieth century, surrounded by the marvels of the Second Industrial Revolution, he proclaimed himself a prophet and led 200 people out of Chicago and into a new age. Or so he promised. The Koreshans settled in a mosquito-infested scrubland and set to building a communal utopia inside what they believed was a hollow earth—with humans living on the inside crust and the entire universe contained within. According to Teed’s socialist and millennialist teachings, if his people practiced celibacy and focused their love on him, he would return and they would all become immortal. In The Allure of Immortality, Lyn Millner weaves the many bizarre strands of Teed’s life and those of his followers into a riveting story of angels, conmen, angry husbands, yellow journalism, and ultimately, hope. LYN MILLNER is associate professor of journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University. She has written and produced stories for NPR’s Morning Edition, USA Today, the Miami Herald, Oxford American, and others.

George Merrick, Son of the South Wind Visionary Creator of Coral Gables Arva Moore Parks
Building America’s “master suburb” “At once an epic and sweeping story of the making of a place and a profoundly intimate story of a man and his dreams.”—Beth Dunlop, editor of Modern Magazine “Parks brings George Merrick to life—his resources and passions, his colleagues and his adversaries. She guides us through the earliest guava groves to the City of Coral Gables we see today, providing insight into its creation and provoking reflection on our responsibility for stewardship.”—Joanna Lombard, coauthor of Historic Landscapes of Florida The story of developers selling off the Sunshine State is as old as the first railroad tracks laid across the peninsula. But seldom do we hear about the men who actually built a better Florida. In George Merrick, Son of the South Wind, South Florida historian Arva Moore Parks recounts George Merrick’s quest to distinguish himself from the legions of developers who sought only profit.
Helping to create the land boom of the 1920s, Merrick transformed his family’s citrus grove just outside of Miami into one of the finest planned communities: the “master suburb” of Coral Gables. With a team of architects and city planners, he built homes for the growing middle class in the Mediterranean Style using local stone, and he invested in public infrastructure by designing and building parks and pools, trolley lines and waterways. He pledged land for a library and the university that would become the University of Miami. Hailed in national publications as a visionary, Merrick was green before green, a New Urbanist before the movement even had a name.
November A Florida Quincentennial Book 384 pp. | 6 1/8 x 9 1/4 | 70 b/w photos ISBN 978-0-8130-6151-1 | Cloth $31.95
As Coral Gables and Merrick prospered, he reinvested in education, affordable housing, and other progressive causes. But the Great Depression ravaged Miami, and Merrick’s idealism cost him his fortune. He died with an estate worth less than $400. With unprecedented access to the Merrick family and mining a treasure trove of Merrick’s personal letters, documents, speeches, and manuscripts, Parks presents the remarkable story of George Merrick and the development of one of the nation’s most iconic planned cities. ARVA MOORE PARKS is the former chief curator, interim director, and chair of the Coral Gables Museum. She is the author of numerous books on Florida history, including The Forgotten Frontier: Florida through the Lens of Ralph Middleton Munroe and Miami, the Magic City.

Remembering Paradise Park Tourism and Segregation at Silver Springs Lu Vickers and Cynthia Wilson-Graham
Tracing the color line through Florida’s most famous spring “A strange and unsettling glimpse of the land of sun and surf in the waning moments of segregation in the South.”—Gilbert King, author of Devil in the Grove: Thurgood Marshall, the Groveland Boys, and the Dawn of a New America “A testament to the efforts of a black community determined to provide wholesome recreation for their families in a segregated society. This masterpiece of local history changes the way we think about the history of tourism and civil rights.”—Susan Sessions Rugh, author of Are We There Yet?: The Golden Age of American Family Vacations “The story of Florida tourism has been told in many ways, but this book gives a perspective that has been missing from most of them.”—Tim Hollis, author of Selling the Sunshine State Paradise Park was the “colored only” counterpart to Silver Springs, a central Florida tourist attraction famous for its crystal-clear water and glass bottom boats. From 1949 to 1969, boats passed each other on the Silver River—blacks on one side, whites on the other. Though the patrons of both parks shared the same river, they never crossed the invisible line in the water. Full of vivid photographs, vintage advertisements, and interviews with employees and patrons, Remembering Paradise Park portrays a place of delight and leisure during the painful era of Jim Crow. Racial violence was at its height in Florida—the famous Groveland rape case happened right as Paradise Park opened—and many African Americans saw the park as a safe place for families. It was a popular vacation spot for the area’s strong black community, which outnumbered the white community as early as the Civil War and had become one of the most cohesive and prosperous black populations in the South.

This book compares the park to other tourist destinations set aside for African Americans in the state and across the country. Though Silver Springs was Florida’s only attraction to operate a parallel facility for African Americans, Paradise Park has been just a whisper in the story of Florida tourism until now.

The Art of Maintaining a Florida Native Landscape Ginny Stibolt with illustrations by Marjorie Shropshire
Turn off the sprinklers because gardening is about to get easier! “Follow this professional gardening advice to end up with a balanced, attractive, easy-to-maintain Florida native garden. It is a gardening book to cherish.”—Roger L. Hammer, author of Attracting Hummingbirds and Butterflies in Tropical Florida “Everything you need to know from just getting started to long-term development and maintenance of the native garden of your dreams.”—Troy Springer, owner of Springer Environmental Services, Inc. “A great resource for learning some of the best approaches to gardening with natives.”—Steven W. Woodmansee, CEO and biologist for Pro Native Consulting The typical dream home landscape—the kind splashed across magazine covers— features emerald lawns and manicured flowerbeds. But the truth, as most gardeners soon discover, is that those picture-perfect lawns and flower beds require hard work, persistent watering and fertilizing, and plenty of pesticides. As more homeowners release themselves from the shackles of lawn maintenance, they turn to native plants, which eventually start to look scruffy and scraggly. While there are plenty of guides for establishing a native landscape, there are few comprehensive resources for their maintenance. In this easy-to-read, practical, and honest approach to native plant landscaping, experienced gardener Ginny Stibolt shares techniques for living with a native landscape and personal lessons learned over the years. Dispelling the myth that native plants require no maintenance, she encourages readers with a simple upkeep schedule that is much more flexible than traditional suburban landscaping. She enumerates the many ecological rewards and covers the basics of gardening before delving into the removal of invasives and other unwanted plants, plant selection, planting methods, propagation, as well as the creation of manageable edges, meadows, groves, and wet sites.

Mission Control Inventing the Groundwork of Spaceflight Michael Peter Johnson
The crucial link in the age of space exploration “We have all seen NASA’s mission control centers at moments of both triumph and tragedy. Johnson makes a significant contribution to spaceflight history by analyzing their pivotal role.”—Roger Launius, associate director for collections and curatorial affairs, National Air and Space Museum “Addresses a critical yet neglected topic in the history of space exploration, namely the role of mission controllers on the ground, without whom little could have ever been accomplished in space.”—Paul E. Ceruzzi, author of Computing: A Concise History “Mission control centers are where the action happens in spaceflight.

Technology/Aeronautics & Astronautics October 216 pp. | 6 x 9 | 14 b/w illus. ISBN 978-0-8130-6150-4 | Cloth $24.95
Brave astronauts, flaring rockets, and majestic launches are only one side of the story of spaceflight. Any mission to space depends on years—if not decades—of work by thousands of dedicated individuals on the ground. These are the people whose voices offer a friendly link to Earth in the void of space, whose hands maneuver rovers across the face of planets, and whose skills guide astronauts home. This book is a long-overdue history of three major centers that have managed important missions since the dawn of the space age. In Mission Control, Michael Johnson explores the famous Johnson Space Center in Houston, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, and the European Space Operations Centre in Darmstadt, Germany—each a strategically designed micro-environment responsible for the operation of spacecraft and the safety of passengers. Johnson explains the motivations behind the location of each center and their intricate design. He shows how the robotic spaceflight missions overseen in Pasadena and Darmstadt set these centers apart from Houston. He argues that the type of spacecraft and the missions they controlled—not the nations they represented— defined how the centers developed, yet they played vital national roles as space technology became a battleground for international power struggles in the Cold War years and even after. MICHAEL PETER JOHNSON is former director of the Skylab Oral History Project.

Alligators in B-Flat Improbable Tales from the Files of Real Florida
Madame Lalaurie, Mistress of the Haunted House
Carolyn Morrow Long
“Floridians are a charming, talented breed, and this humorous, honest, and often touching collection of tales exhibits the melting pot of traditions and lifestyles from a journalist’s eye.” —Publishers Weekly
“Shed[s] light on what is fact and what is purely fiction in a tale that’s still told nightly on the streets of New Orleans.”—Deep South Magazine
“Klinkenberg’s deep love for Florida—natural Florida and everyone who knew it before there were so many people—is obvious.” —Miami Herald “The living legend and awardwinning journalist has become synonymous with Florida storytelling, and here’s an evocative collection that shows you why.” —Creating Loafing Tampa “You’ll want to read this entertaining and ever-so-idiosyncratic guide to the out of the way that lies just beyond our gaze, out in the swamp, out on the dirt road.”—Tampa Bay Times “Introduce[s] the reader to some of the most interesting and offkilter people and places between the Panhandle and Key West.” —Apalachicola Times “Klinkenberg writes of a culture that like some of his animals is endangered.”—Florida Times-Union “A virtuoso performance, and proves, once again, that Klinkenberg is among our finest writers.”—Randy Wayne White “If Jeff Klinkenberg isn’t careful, he might give journalism a good name.”—Carl Hiaasen “I could read him all day.”—Rick Bragg JEFF KLINKENBERG wrote for the Tampa Bay Times from 1977 to 2014. He is a two-time winner of the Paul Hansell Distinguished Journalism Award, the highest honor given by the Florida Society of Newspaper Editors.

“Required reading for visitors to New Orleans, especially those planning to take one of the ubiquitous ghost tours. . . . Demonstrate[s] that New Orleans history can haunt us without exaggerations or embellishments.”—Louisiana History “Explores a pivotal event in a city that drips legends from every pore.”—Elizabeth Shown Mills, author of Isle of Canes “A page-turner. History, folklore, myth—this book has it all, like almost everything in New Orleans.”—Nathalie Dessens, author of Creole City Nearly two hundred years have passed since the French Quarter mansion of New Orleans society matron Madame Delphine Lalaurie caught fire, exposing acts of unthinkable cruelty. The public was outraged to find seven of her slaves starved, chained, and mutilated. Madame Lalaurie was forced to flee the city as tales of her actions grew increasingly fanciful and grotesque. Carolyn Long, a meticulous researcher of New Orleans history, disentangles the threads of fact and legend that have intertwined over the decades. Was Madame Lalaurie a sadistic abuser? Mentally ill? Or merely the victim of an unfair and sensationalist press? Using carefully documented eyewitness testimony, archival documents, and family letters, Long opens wide the door on the legend of Madame Lalaurie’s haunted house. CAROLYN MORROW LONG is retired from the National Museum of American History. She is the author of Spiritual Merchants: Religion, Magic, and Commerce and A New Orleans Voudou Priestess: The Legend and Reality of Marie Laveau.

The Odyssey of an African Slave
Alice Micco Snow and Susan Enns Stans
Edited by Patricia C. Griffin
“Not only is this the first book on Seminole native herbal medicine, but it is written in conjunction with Native American herbalist Snow, who combines her vast personal experience with generations of herbal knowledge passed down orally from her ancestors.”—American Herb Association
“This is the only known slave memoir from Florida. . . . A fine addition to slave narrative reading lists.”—Library Journal “Griffin intersperses Sitiki’s account with commentary that places this extraordinary narrative into historical context, noting the scarcity of slave narratives—particularly slaves born in Africa.”—Booklist “A poignant story.” —St. Augustine Record “A choice slice of Florida history.”—Winter Haven News-Chief “Gives voice to an individual who entered the world as a free man named Sitiki in coastal West Africa during the 1790s and departed it more than eighty years later in St. Augustine as a Methodist minister and community leader.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Sitiki experienced five slave systems: African, British, Old South, New English, and Spanish. Editor Griffin has expertly woven the heavily scribbled . . . manuscript pages.”—Choice “Griffin has managed to patch together unwieldy and difficult pieces of a singular story.”—Afro-Americans in New York Life and History “The publication of a heretofore unknown slave narrative is significant, even more so when the subject was also a victim of the transatlantic slave trade. . . . [Sitiki] should become another well-known name on our list of enslaved voices from the Americas.”—Journal of Southern History
Medicine of the Florida Seminole Indians
“For the first time, open[s] a window into the rich knowledge of Florida’s indigenous people.” —HerbalGram “A fascinating insight into the rapidly disappearing practice of Seminole traditional medicine.” —Natural Awakenings “It is a knowledge almost forgotten. How many today know about the curative powers of button snakeroot, prickly pear or lantana?” —Florida Wildlife “Will interest anyone concerned with the history and traditions of the Florida Seminole Indians.”—Choice “An illustrated compendium of knowledge and practice.”—Sarasota Herald-Tribune “Describes how the plants are used and includes a plant identification chart with Mikasuki . . . and Creek names as well as the common and botanical names.”—Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel “Snow represents a generation we are rapidly losing—elders who retain traditional knowledge of their native culture—and this is her gift to the future.”—Florida Historical Quarterly
SITIKI, also known as Jack Smith, was born in Africa and died, a free man, in St. Augustine, Florida. He wrote his memoir between 1869 and 1871 with the assistance of historian Buckingham Smith, his former master. PATRICIA C. GRIFFIN, an independent historical anthropologist, is the author of Mullet on the Beach and the editor of Fifty Years of Southeastern Archaeology.
ALICE MICCO SNOW (1922–2008) was a respected elder of the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Speaking English, Creek, and Mikasuki, she worked all her life as a translator and herbalist for the Seminole Tribe of Florida and as a liaison between Seminole traditional doctors and the Seminole people. SUSAN ENNS STANS was assistant professor of anthropology at Florida Gulf Coast University and worked actively with the Seminole staff on education issues and college classes.

Henry Flagler’s opulent Hotel Ponce de Leon drew worldwide praise from the day its elaborately carved doors opened in 1888. Built in the Spanish Renaissance Revival style, the architectural and engineering marvel featured the talents of a team of renowned artisans, including the designs of architects John Carrère, Thomas Hastings, and Bernard Maybeck, electricity by Thomas Edison, and interior decoration and stained glass windows by Louis Tiffany. The rich and famous strolling its halls were the most successful people of the Gilded Age, including John D. Rockefeller, Mark Twain, Alexander Graham Bell, and President Teddy Roosevelt. But with the Great Depression, the gem of Flagler’s empire began a slow decline until Flagler College acquired it in 1968 as the centerpiece of its campus. Hotel Ponce de Leon is the first work to present the building’s complete history and detail its transformation into the heart of Flagler College. Leslee Keys, who played a major role in the restoration, recounts the complicated construction of the hotel— the first major structure to be built entirely of poured concrete—and the efforts to preserve it and restore it to its former glory. The methods used at Flagler College have been recognized as best practices in historic preservation and decorative arts conservation, and today the campus is one of Florida’s most visited heritage tourism destinations. LESLEE F. KEYS is director of historic preservation and assistant professor of history at Flagler College.

Florida Historical Society Rembert Patrick Book Award Gulf South Historical Association Michael V.R. Thomason Book Award “Highly recommended.”—Choice “Touches every era and most great figures of Florida politics.” —Daytona Beach News-Journal “Reads like an epic, a tale spanning centuries and filled with avarice, courage, determination, hubris, and a heroine out of central casting.

Florida Book Awards, Gold Medal for Florida Nonfiction British Association for American Studies Arthur Miller Centre First Book Prize “Conclusively demonstrates that writers based as far apart as Los Angeles and Miami deployed many of the same tropical tropes to peddle orange groves, bungalows, beach vacations, and overpriced hotel rooms to customers in colder climes.”—Journal of American History “Represents almost a decade of extensive inquiry into the Anglodominated promotional machine that reimagined California from a desert wasteland to a coastal paradise, and Florida from a backwater swamp to a lush homeland.”—Choice “A rare comparative history of tourism development. . . . Through his careful reading of promotional pamphlets, travel narratives, popular magazines, and advertisements, Knight does more than recount rhetoric; he exposes the hypocrisy that underlay it.”—Reviews in American History “Takes seriously the fantasies that developers and boosters have sold to tourists and analyzes what those fantasies tell us about changes in the modern economy and society. . . . Comparing California and Florida allows [Knight] not only to examine changing conceptions of ‘the tropics,’ but also to look at these warm states’ rivalry with one another.”—Business History Review “By the 1920s, southern California and south Florida were drawing many thousands of visitors each year and were experiencing real estate booms. This book explains how the selling of California and Florida as semitropical lands fostered these transformations as national tropes about imperiled notions of American society, identity, and republicanism were projected onto the two states.”—Forum HENRY KNIGHT is lecturer in American studies at Northumbria University.

Extremism in America Edited by George Michael “Those looking to confirm their biases may be surprised and enlightened by what they find.” —Choice “A first-rate survey of the various strands of domestic extremism, from far left to far right, that are increasingly convulsing our country. A must-read for students, scholars, officials, and others entering this important field.”—Mark Potok, Southern Poverty Law Center “With contributions on areas ranging from anti-abortion extremism to modern anarchism and black nationalism, this is a fascinating study of an often neglected and vital area of American politics.”—Martin Durham, author of White Rage: The Extreme Right and American Politics This volume provides a sweeping overview and assessment of the various brands of bigotry, prejudice, zealotry, dogmatism, and partisanship found in the United States, including the extreme right, the antiglobalization movement, Chicano separatism, militant Islam, Jewish extremism, eco-extremism, and extremist terrorism. Many of these forms of single-minded intolerance are repressed by both the state and society at large, but others receive significant support from their constituencies and enjoy a level of respectability in some quarters of the mainstream. The essays in this volume examine the relationship between these movements and the larger society, dissect the arguments of contemporary American anarchist activists, look at recent trends in political extremism, and suggest how and why such arguments resonate with a considerable number of people. GEORGE MICHAEL, associate professor of criminal justice at Westfield State University in Massachusetts, is the author of five books, including Lone Wolf Terror and the Rise of Leaderless Resistance, Theology of Hate, and Willis Carto and the American Far Right.
Water and African American Memory An Ecocritical Perspective Anissa Janine Wardi “Shows that in addition to the Atlantic Ocean of the Middle Passage, sites of African American memory include all forms of water—rivers, swamps, lakes, fog, and hurricanes. . . .

Ahead of the curve. . . . Helps us see clearly and deeply the infinite interconnections and parallels that make this relationship such a complex planetary, human, and cultural concern.”—Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature “Ambitious and well-researched. . . . Wardi undertakes this investigation through an examination of several twentieth-century cultural texts by writers Ntozake Shange, Toni Morrison, Henry Dumas, and Richard Wright; filmmakers Julie Dash and Kasi Lemmons; and blues singers Muddy Waters and Bessie Smith.”—Callaloo “This cutting-edge text not only increases our understanding of African American literature and film, it also enlarges the accessibility and the possibilities of the field of ecocriticism.”—Yvonne Atkinson, Mt. San Jacinto College and president of the Toni Morrison Society ANISSA JANINE WARDI, author of Death and the Arc of Mourning in African American Literature, is professor of English and African American literature at Chatham University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Axtmann “Examines powwow history, details specific dances and their use of time and space, and attempts to highlight the issues of race, belonging, and the problematics of those who wish to ‘play Indian.’ The book is an excellent primer for those interested in the differences in styles and regalia, as well as the nuances of individual powwows.”—Native American and Indigenous Studies “An excellent introduction to the many complexities and facets of powwows. It entices the reader to recognize the importance of bodies in motion—in particular, dance—in forging social worlds and mediating power relations.” —Zoila Mendoza, author of Creating Our Own: Folklore, Performance, and Identity in Cuzco, Peru “As dancer and dance scholar, Axtmann brings a keen eye and her own kinesthetic knowledge of dance to ground her interpretation of the movement styles of powwow dances. Her fieldwork over many years at a number of powwows in both the United States and Canada gives the work depth and authority. This groundbreaking and lively book makes a real contribution to understanding the style and significance of powwow dancing.”—Elizabeth Fine, author of Soulstepping: African American Step Shows “A rich ethnographic and cultural analysis, grounded in postcolonial and transcultural contexts.

Padre David Rodriguez, the Catholic Church, and El Salvador's Revolutionary Movement
More Archaeology of Piracy
Peter M. Sánchez “Documents Rodriguez’s life—an important contribution in and of itself—and shows how religiously grounded leaders like Rodriguez were crucial to the success of revolutionary movements.”—Anna Peterson, coeditor of Christianity, Social Change, and Globalization in the Americas “Sánchez challenges fellow specialists by introducing new evidence and placing Father David in the context of socialmovement scholarship.”—Erik Ching, author of Authoritarian El Salvador David Rodriguez, or Padre David as he is known throughout El Salvador, is a diocesan priest who followed the Second Vatican Council’s doctrinal mandate to advocate for the poor and oppressed. Along with other progressive clergy committed to liberation theology, Padre David helped drive forward the country’s popular movement. In the 1970s, Padre David joined the largest guerilla organization in El Salvador, the FPL (Popular Liberation Forces). At first, he supported the FPL clandestinely, helping to organize Christian Base Communities, autonomous religious groups dedicated to spreading liberationist ideas and to giving the Salvadoran poor a clear understanding of why their lives were so difficult. By the end of the twelve-year civil war, he was head of the FPL’s finance committee. He traveled to the United States, Europe, and across Latin America raising funds for the movement and its resulting political party, the FMLN (Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front). In Priest Under Fire, Peter Sánchez tells the story of how one priest joined a movement to help his people and his country. He provides much-needed insight into both the Salvadoran civil war and the Catholic Church–influenced grassroots political movements, showing that they continue to inform Latin America today. PETER M. SÁNCHEZ, professor of political science at Loyola University Chicago, is the author of Panama Lost?: U.S. Hegemony, Democracy, and the Canal.

Edited by Charles R. Ewen and Russell K. Skowronek “Anyone interested in historical archaeology, seafaring, and of course, piracy on the high seas as well as on land will enjoy this book.”—Donny L. Hamilton, director, Conservation Research Laboratory, Texas A&M University “Shows that the piracy of yesteryear had the same economic impact and reasons for being as piracy does today. Pirates, along with their dreams and the dreams of those affected by pirate actions, are brought to light through a series of marvelously written, impeccably researched chapters.”—Steve J. Dasovich, Lindenwood University There is little to distinguish the pirate from the average sailor in the archaeological record. Virtually every pirate-related site yet excavated would not be identified as such without the accompanying historical record. The contributors to this volume combine both material culture and archival research to confirm the exploits of pirates and the ships they sailed. Expanding on the widely successful X Marks the Spot, Pieces of Eight explores the newest findings in the maritime archaeology of piracy. The contributors examine the latest discoveries at Captain Henry Morgan’s encampments and recount William Kidd’s epic capture of the Quedagh Merchant in the Indian Ocean. Other chapters include explorations of Blackbeard’s Queen Anne’s Revenge, Bartholomew “Black Bart” Robert’s Ranger, and even Hollywood’s portrayal of pirates. Pieces of Eight is a thrilling and eye-opening view of pirate life—as well as the final underwater resting places of their ships. CHARLES R.

African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil
The Mulatto Republic
Black Power in the Caribbean
Class, Race, and Dominican National Identity
Edited by Kate Quinn
April J. Mayes
“A provocative tour de force.”—Choice
“Explains Dominican anti-Haitianism as the relatively recent discursive practice in a political tradition that was conditioned by the rise of industrialized sugar processing and the U.S. occupation of the country during the early twentieth century. . . . A carefully orchestrated and thoroughly sound refutation of longstanding prejudices that is bound to create controversy.”—American Historical Review
“With rich documentary material from press reports, letters, internal memos, and popular songs, Ickes’s book fills a major gap in the historiography of regional identity in Bahia and has much to offer to historians, anthropologists, literary critics, musicologists, and scholars of other disciplines.”—Hispanic American Historical Review “A sophisticated and thoughtful analysis of mid-twentieth-century cultural politics.”—Hendrik Kraay, editor of Negotiating Identities in Modern Latin America Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, is often referred to as “Brazil’s Black Rome.” Culturally complex, vibrant, and rich with history, its African-descended population is one of the largest in Latin America yet remains a marginalized racial group within the state as a whole.
“Provides an alternative argument on how the Dominican Republic has come to embrace an anti-black identity. . . . other than as having emanated from the Trujillo dictatorship.”—Caribbean Quarterly “Seamlessly combines intellectual and social history approaches, which is not an easy task. . . . One of the best and most thoroughly researched contributions to Dominican history in several years.”—H-Net “Mayes proves that there was a multitude of factors that sharpen our knowledge of the development of race and nation in the Dominican Republic.”—Millery Polyné, author of From Douglass to Duvalier
This book examines how in the middle of the twentieth century African-Bahian cultural practices such as capoeira, samba, and Candomblé during carnival and other popular religious festivals came to be accepted as essential components of Bahian regional identity. Scott Ickes argues that cultural-political alliances between African-Bahian cultural practitioners and their dominant-class allies helped to create a framework through which African-Bahian inclusion could be negotiated.
“A fascinating book. Mayes discusses the roots of anti-Haitianism, the Dominican elite, and the ways in which race and nation have been intertwined in the history of the Dominican Republic.”—Kimberly Eison Simmons, author of Reconstructing Racial Identity and the African Past in the Dominican Republic
SCOTT ICKES teaches in the History Department at Gustavus Adolphus College.

Hillforts of the Ancient Andes Colla Warfare, Society, and Landscape Elizabeth N. Arkush Society for American Archaeology Book Award “Offers a detailed history of the Colla, an important indigenous group conquered by the Inca in the 15th century.”—Choice “Meticulously researched, analytically incisive, and so clearly written that it is a pleasure to read. Its particular worth, though, lies in the two issues it targets, warfare and political evolution. Each is of considerable interest to contemporary archaeology and of self-evident importance to our understanding of the human predicament, but it is their unusual conjunction at this point and period that makes this work especially significant.”—H-Net “Using a bold combination of surface survey, excavation, and cutting-edge GIS modeling, Arkush examines the social conditions that existed in the Andes during this period of unprecedented regional conflict and provides critical insights into the culture of war which existed at this time.”—Brian S. Bauer, author of The Sacred Landscape of the Inca “Arkush’s architectural analysis and study of artifacts is accompanied by a new body of radiocarbon dates that turn traditional documentary interpretations of Colla social organization on their heads. This is an important advance in our understanding of late prehispanic societies in the Andean highlands.” —R. Alan Covey, editor of Regional Archaeology in the Inca Heartland ELIZABETH N.

Late Prehistoric Florida Archaeology at the Edge of the Mississippian World Edited by Keith Ashley and Nancy Marie White “An extremely important contribution to the literature of an area that is diverse, exciting, and little understood.”—American Archaeology “[Late Prehistoric Florida] is not only the first state-wide synthesis of Mississippi period archaeology for Florida, but it also brings into sharper focus the complexity of numerous maritime fishing-gathering-hunting cultures.”—Antiquity “Focuses on the scale of interaction between Florida’s Native societies ca. 1000–1600 and the Mississippian maize-dependent societies to the north.”—Choice “Uses Florida’s ‘appendicular’ geographic position as a means to explore how the histories of local Native American groups diverged from those of late prehistoric societies— those of the Mississippian tradition—in the greater southeastern United States.”—H-Net “All treatments in the volume are couched comfortably within satisfying descriptions of material culture, chronological developments, and regional adaptations.” —Midcontinental Journal of Archaeology KEITH ASHLEY is coordinator of archaeological research and instructor of anthropology at the University of North Florida. NANCY MARIE WHITE, professor of anthropology at the University of South Florida, is author of Archaeology for Dummies and editor of Gulf Coast Archaeology.
An Introduction to the Chansons de Geste Catherine M.

Jones has succeeded especially well in presenting so many texts and recounting their stories with clarity, brevity, and a light hand.”—William Calin, author of The French Tradition and the Literature of Medieval England “An indispensable research tool for students and scholars of Old French literature.” —Elizabeth W. Poe, author of Compilatio Loosely based on French history but often embellished in fantastical ways and written to be performed by minstrels, chansons de geste are one of the most important traditions of the French Middle Ages.

Dirty Harry’s America
A Critical Edition
Clint Eastwood, Harry Callahan, and the Conservative Backlash
Edited by A. Nicholas Fargnoli and Michael Patrick Gillespie “Joyce’s one play finally gets the critical attention it deserves.”—Sam Slote, coeditor of Renascent Joyce “Carefully selected discussions illuminate both Joyce’s Exiles and Joyce’s exile—and, as well, the sense of exile throughout Joyce’s work.”—Morris Beja, coeditor of Bloomsday 100: Essays on Ulysses This is the first critical edition of Exiles, Joyce’s only extant play and his least appreciated work. A. Nicholas Fargnoli and Michael Patrick Gillespie contend that the play deserves the same serious study as Joyce’s fiction and stands on the cutting edge of modern drama. Their introduction situates Exiles in the context of Irish history and Joyce’s other works, highlighting its often-overlooked complexity. The text of the play is newly annotated and unregularized, appearing as Joyce originally intended. Containing a variety of critical responses to the text, including an interview with a recent director of the play, this edition establishes Exiles as an important component of Joyce’s canon. A. NICHOLAS FARGNOLI is dean of the Division of Humanities at Molloy College. He is author and editor of several books and coeditor of Ulysses in Critical Perspective. MICHAEL PATRICK GILLESPIE is director of the Center for the Humanities in an Urban Environment at Florida International University. He is the author and editor of numerous books, including James Joyce and the Exilic Imagination. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles
“Street provides a crucial critical and cultural service by not only studying Eastwood’s individual films in sharp detail but also by providing a close and serious analysis of the cultural and historic times of the films.”—Sam B. Girgus, author of Clint Eastwood’s America Clint Eastwood’s Dirty Harry became the prototype for a new kind of movie cop—an antihero in pursuit of his own vision of justice. The Dirty Harry series helped cement Eastwood and his character, Harry Callahan, as central figures in 1970s and 1980s Hollywood cinema. In Dirty Harry’s America, Joe Street argues that the series sheds critical light on the culture and politics of the post-1960s era and locates San Francisco as the symbolic cultural battleground of the time. Street maintains that through referencing real events and political struggles, the films themselves became active participants in the culture wars, paying particular attention to the films’ representation of crime, family and community, sexuality, and race. Unapologetic carrier of right and might, Harry Callahan becomes America’s Ur-conservative: “unbending, moral, incorruptible, and most important, always right.” Long after the series, Callahan’s legacy remains strong in American political discourse, cinema, and pop culture, and he continues to shape Eastwood’s later political and cinematic career. JOE STREET is senior lecturer in American history at Northumbria University. He is the author of The Culture War in the Civil Rights Movement.

Behind the Masks of Modernism
Joyce’s Allmaziful Plurabilities
Victims of Ireland’s Great Famine
Global and Transnational Perspectives
Polyvocal Explorations of Finnegans Wake
The Bioarchaeology of Mass Burials at Kilkenny Union Workhouse
Edited by Kimberly J. Devlin and Christine Smedley
Edited by Andrew Reynolds and Bonnie Roos “Allows the mask—as artifact, metaphor, theatrical costume, fetish, strategy for selfconcealment, and treasured cultural object—to clarify modernity’s relationship to history.”—Carrie J. Preston, author of Modernism’s Mythic Pose “Explores the fascinating role of masks and masking in mediating the relationship between tradition and modernity.”—Paul Jay, author of The Humanities “Crisis” and the Future of Literary Studies Stretching beyond the Western canon and the literary scope of the field, this volume reconsiders what “modernism” means by exploring numerous local expressions of modernity around the globe. Masks—both literal and metaphorical—play a role in each of these artistic ventures, from Brazilian music to Chinese film to Nigerian masquerade performance. These case studies show how masks enable diverse artists and communities to grapple with deep societal transformations caused by modern transnational forces. The contributors challenge popular assumptions about what modernism looks like and what modernity is.

“Sets Irish archaeology on an exciting new course by tangibly proving the harshness of the famine and the workhouse system.” —Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America
“Celebrates the multiplicity and sheer rampant excess of Joyce’s prodigally polysemous text with seventeen different scholars employing a likewise prodigal range of critical methodologies.”—Patrick O’Neill, author of Impossible Joyce: Finnegans Wakes
“Sheds critical new light on the actualities of daily life in Famine-era Ireland, challenges some of the myths about the horrors of the workhouse experience, and restores humanity to the nameless dead.”—Audrey Horning, author of Ireland in the Virginian Sea
This guide to Finnegans Wake is the first to focus exclusively on the multiple meanings and voices in Joyce’s notoriously intricate diction—the Wake’s central experimental technique. Renowned Joyce scholars explore the polyvocality of individual chapters using game theory, ecocriticism, psychoanalysis, historicism, myth, philosophy, genetic studies, feminism, and other critical frameworks. They set in motion cross-currents and radiating structures of meaning that permeate the entire text and open up satisfying readings of the Wake for novices and seasoned readers alike. KIMBERLY J.

With one million dead, and just as many forced to emigrate, the Irish Famine (1845–52) is among the worst health calamities in history. In 2006, archaeologists discovered a mass burial containing the remains of nearly 1,000 Kilkenny Union workhouse inmates. In the first bioarchaeological study of Great Famine victims, Jonny Geber uses skeletal analysis to tell the story of how and why the Irish Famine decimated the lowest levels of nineteenth century society. By examining the physical conditions of the inmates that might have contributed to their institutionalization, as well as to the resulting health consequences, Geber sheds new and unprecedented light on Ireland’s Great Hunger.

Beyond the Walls
Sites of Remembering and Forgetting
New Perspectives on the Archaeology of Historical Households
Edited by Maria Theresia Starzmann and John R. Roby “A rounded overview of historical and sociocultural approaches to memory that offers a series of interesting and compelling case studies with good global coverage.”—Andrew Jones, author of Prehistoric Materialities In this groundbreaking study, Maria Theresia Starzmann and John Roby bring together an international cast of experts who move beyond the traditional framework of the “constructed past” to look at not only how the past is remembered but also who remembers it. They convincingly argue that memory is a complex process, shaped by remembering and forgetting, inscription and erasure, presence and absence. Collective memory influences which stories are told over others, ultimately shaping narratives about identity, family, and culture. This interdisciplinary volume—melding anthropology, archaeology, sociology, history, philosophy, literature, and archival studies— explores such diverse arenas as archaeological objects, human remains, colonial landscapes, public protests, national memorials, art installations, testimonies, and even digital space as places of memory. Examining important sites of memory, including the Victory Memorial to Soviet Army, Blair Mountain, Spanish penitentiaries, African shrines, and the U.S.-Mexico borderlands, the contributors highlight the myriad ways communities reinforce or reinterpret their pasts.

The Archaeology of the North American Fur Trade Michael S. Nassaney
Edited by Kevin R. Fogle, James A. Nyman, and Mary C. Beaudry “Thought-provoking and engaging. Essential for both students and professionals.”—Mark D. Groover, author of The Archaeology of North American Farmsteads “A great addition to the available written media on the household and historical archaeology.”—Kerri S. Barile, coeditor of Household Chores and Household Choices: Theorizing the Domestic Sphere in Historical Archaeology While household archaeologists view the home as a social unit, few move their investigations “beyond the walls” when contextualizing a household in its community. Even exterior aspects of a dwelling—its plant life, yard spaces, and trash heaps—uncover issues of domination and resistance, gender relations, and the effects of colonialism. This innovative volume examines historical homes and their wider landscapes to more fully address social issues of the past. The contributors, leading archaeologists using various interpretive frameworks, analyze households across time periods and diverse cultures in North America. Including case studies of James Madison’s Montpelier, George Washington’s Ferry Farm, Chinese immigrants in a Nevada mining town, Hawaiian ranching communities, and Southern plantations, Beyond the Walls offers a new avenue for archaeological study of domestic sites. KEVIN R. FOGLE is an instructor in the department of anthropology at the University of South Carolina. JAMES A. NYMAN is an instructor in the department of anthropology at the University of North Carolina. MARY C. BEAUDRY, professor of archaeology, anthropology, and gastronomy at Boston University, is the author of Findings: The Material Culture of Needlework and Sewing.
“Draws together an amazing amount of information about the fur trades that once existed in North America and includes illuminating and imaginative interpretations of archaeological data by researchers from across the continent.”—Gregory A. Waselkov, author of A Conquering Spirit: Fort Mims and the Redstick War of 1813–1814 “Provides new means to interpret and enhance existing fur trade sites and parks and to discover and evaluate sites that should be preserved.”—Douglas C. Wilson, historical archaeologist for the National Park Service The North American fur trade left an enduring material legacy of the complex interactions between natives and Europeans. From the sixteenth through nineteenth centuries, the demand for pelts and skins transformed America, helping to fuel the Age of Discovery and, later, Manifest Destiny. By synthesizing its social, economic, and ideological effects, Nassaney reveals how this extractive economy contributed to the American experience. Including research from historical archaeologists and a case study of the Fort St. Joseph trading post in Michigan, this innovative work highlights the fur trade’s role in the settlement of the continent and its impact, persisting even today, on social relations.

Rethinking Moundville and Its Hinterland Edited by Vincas P. Steponaitis and C. Margaret Scarry “A substantive addition to our knowledge about one of the premier archaeological sites in eastern North America.”—George Milner, author of The Cahokia Chiefdom Moundville, near Tuscaloosa, Alabama, is one of the largest pre-Columbian mound sites in North America. Comprising twenty-nine earthen mounds that were once platforms for chiefly residences and temples, Moundville was a major political and religious center for the people living in its region and for the wider Mississippian world. A much-needed synthesis of the rapidly expanding archaeological work that has taken place in the region over the past two decades, this volume presents the results of multifaceted research and new excavations. Using models deeply rooted in local ethnohistory, it ties Moundville and its people more closely than before to the ethnography of native southerners and emphasizes the role of social memory and ritual practices both at the mound center and in the hinterland, providing an up-to-date and refreshingly nuanced interpretation of Mississippian culture. VINCAS P. STEPONAITIS, professor of anthropology and director of the Research Laboratories of Archaeology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, is coauthor of Archaeology of the Moundville Chiefdom.

Oliver, author of Caciques and Cemí Idols During Spanish colonization of the Greater Antilles, the islands’ natives were forced into labor under the encomienda system. The indigenous people became “Indios,” their language, appearance, and identity transformed by the domination imposed by a foreign model that Christianized and “civilized” them. Yet El Chorro de Maíta retained many of its indigenous characteristics. In this volume—one of the first in English to examine and document an archaeological site in Cuba—Roberto Valcárcel Rojas analyzes the construction of colonial authority and the various attitudes and responses of natives and other ethnic groups. His pioneering study reveals the process of transculturation in which new individuals emerged—Indians, mestizos, criollos—and helps construct the vital link between the pre-Columbian world and the development of an integrated and new history. ROBERTO VALCÁRCEL ROJAS is a researcher for the Cuban Ministry of Science’s Department of Central-Eastern Archaeology and a postdoctoral researcher at Leiden University.

Fort San Juan and the Limits of Empire Colonialism and Household Practice at the Berry Site Edited by Robin A. Beck, Christopher B. Rodning, and David G. Moore “An insightful analysis of the excavations of the most exciting Spanish colonial site to be found in recent years.” —Marvin T. Smith, author of Coosa Built in 1566 by Spanish conquistador Juan Pardo, Fort San Juan is the earliest known European settlement in the interior United States. Located at the Berry site in western North Carolina, the fort and its associated domestic compound stood near the Native American town of Joara, whose residents sacked the fort and burned the compound after only eighteen months. Drawing on archaeological evidence from architectural, floral, and faunal remains, as well as newly discovered accounts of Pardo’s expeditions, this volume explores the deterioration in Native American–Spanish relations that sparked Joara’s revolt and offers critical insight into the nature of early colonial interactions.

The Bioarchaeology of Classical Kamarina
Archaeology of East Asian Shipbuilding
Site Formation Processes of Submerged Shipwrecks
Life and Death in Greek Sicily
Edited by Matthew E. Keith
“The most comprehensive technical inventory of East Asian shipbuilding and shipwrecks available to date, this detailed analysis refines our understanding of East Asia ship construction.”—Hans Konrad Van Tilburg, author of Chinese Junks on the Pacific: Views from a Different Deck
“A major step forward in the effort to create and synthesize a body of formation theory for shipwreck sites by cataloguing the myriad factors affecting such sites across a number of academic fields, ranging from geology and oceanography to history and sociology.”—John M. O’Shea, author of Ships and Shipwrecks of the Au Sable Shores Region of Western Lake Huron
Carrie L. Sulosky Weaver Foreword by Giovanni Di Stefano “A true, balanced bioarchaeological work of scholarship elucidating the way of life and death for the people of Passo Marinaro.”—Sherry C. Fox, coeditor of New Directions in the Skeletal Biology of Greece Human remains and burial customs are often considered separately in studies of ancient Greek populations. In this seminal work, Carrie Sulosky Weaver synthesizes skeletal, material, and ritual data to reconstruct the cultural practices of Kamarina, a city-state in Sicily. Using evidence from 258 recovered graves from the Passo Marinaro necropolis (circa the fifth to the third century BCE), Sulosky Weaver suggests that Kamarineans were closely linked to their counterparts in neighboring Greek cities. Evidence of violence, like head trauma and a high young adult mortality rate, indicate exposure to a series of catastrophic events. Other evidence at burial sites allude to Kamarina’s mixed ancestry, ethnicity, and social hierarchy. Despite the tumultuous nature of the times, the resulting portrait reveals that Kamarina was a place where individuals of diverse ethnicities and ancestries were united in life and death by shared culture and funerary practices. CARRIE L. SULOSKY WEAVER is a Kenneth P. Dietrich School of Arts and Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Pittsburgh in the Department of History of Art and Architecture.
“Based on original language sources and the remains of numerous wrecked Asian ships from sites dating back hundreds of years, this definitive volume substantially revises our understanding and appreciation of Asian seafaring.”—James P. Delgado, author of Khubilai Khan’s Lost Fleet: In Search of a Legendary Armada
Many factors influence the formation of shipwreck sites: the materials from which the ship was built, the underwater environment, and subsequent events such as human activity, storms, and chemical reactions.
In this innovative study, Jun Kimura integrates historical data with archaeological findings to examine a wide array of eleventh- through nineteenth-century ships from China, Korea, and Japan. Chinese junks and Japanese sailing ships were known throughout the world, and this work illustrates why their innovative designs have survived the centuries. Kimura presents an extensive dataset of excavated coastal and oceangoing ships that traveled the Yellow Sea, the East China Sea, and the South China Sea. Three detailed case studies include the Shinan and Quanzhou wrecks and the Takashima underwater site. Using travel documents, cargo manifests, iconographic paintings, and other descriptive resources, as well as the archaeological evidence of hull components, wooden timbers, and iron remains, Kimura sheds new light on East Asian shipbuilding traditions. JUN KIMURA is junior associate professor at Tokai University.
In this first volume to comprehensively catalogue the physical and cultural processes affecting submerged ships, Matthew Keith brings together experts in diverse fields such as geology, soil and wood chemistry, microand marine biology, and sediment dynamics. The case studies identify and examine the natural and anthropogenic processes—corrosion and degradation on one hand, fishing and trawling on the other—that contribute to the present condition of shipwreck sites. The contributors also discuss how these varied and often overlapping events influence the archaeological record. Offering an in-depth analysis of emerging technologies and methods—acoustic positioning, computer modeling, and site reconstruction—this is an essential study for the research and preservation of submerged heritage sites.

Eating in the Side Room Food, Archaeology, and African American Identity Mark S. Warner “Warner powerfully demonstrates the role of food in shaping and defining social identity as it pertains to African American life in the racialized United States. His careful analysis of archaeological materials supplemented with other sources such as quilts and blues lyrics—sources seldom used in historical archaeology—is instructive and inspiring.”—Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America In Eating in the Side Room, Mark Warner uses the archaeological data of food remains recovered from excavations in Annapolis, Maryland, and the Chesapeake as a point of departure to examine how material culture shaped African American identity in one of the country’s oldest cities. Warner skillfully demonstrates how African Americans employed food as a tool for expressing and defending their cultural heritage while living in a society that attempted to ignore and marginalize them. The “side rooms” where the families ate their meals not only satisfied their hunger but also their need to belong. As a result, Warner claims, the independence that African Americans practiced during this time helped prepare their children and grandchildren to overcome greater challenges of white oppression. MARK S. WARNER is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Idaho and coeditor of Annapolis Pasts: Historical Archaeology in Annapolis, Maryland.

Thatched Roofs and Open Sides
The Architecture of Chickees and Their Changing Role in Seminole Society
Pentecostalism, Masculinity, and the Politics of Spiritual Authority in the Dominican Republic
Brendan Jamal Thornton
“Navigates archaeology, architecture, and oral history to tell the story of the Seminole house from its origins through its persistence in the face of modernization.”—Ryan Wheeler, director, Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology
“Provides important insights about why men convert to Pentecostalism, how they derive authority and status in Pentecostal churches, and how at the same time they reaffirm their claims to local ideals of masculinity.” —Elizabeth Brusco, author of The Reformation of Machismo: Evangelical Conversion and Gender in Colombia
One of the most prevalent misconceptions about the architecture of Native Americans is that they all lived in teepees or wigwams. In Thatched Roofs and Open Sides, Carrie Dilley reveals the design, construction, history, and cultural significance of the chickee, the unique Seminole structure made of palmetto and cypress. The naturalist-explorer William Bartram first sighted chickees when he penetrated Florida’s dense tropical forests. During the Seminole Wars, the thatched roof platforms served as hideouts and shelters. In the twentieth century, the government and charitable organizations deemed the abodes “primitive” and “unfit,” and, rather than move into non-chickee housing, the Seminoles began to modernize them. Today, chickees can still be found throughout tribal land, but they are no longer primary residences. Instead, they are built to teach people about Seminole life and history and to encourage tribal youth to reflect on that aspect of their culture. Dilley interviews builders and surveys over five hundred chickees on the Big Cypress Indian Reservation, illustrating how the multipurpose structure has evolved over time to meet the changing needs of the Seminole Tribe. CARRIE ANN DILLEY is visitor services and development manager at the Ah-Tah-Thi-Ki Seminole Indian Museum in Clewiston, Florida. She is the former architectural historian of the Seminole Tribe of Florida Tribal Historic Preservation Office.

“An ethnographically vivid depiction of an unlikely partnership—of Evangelical churches and Dominican gangs which not only coexist but create a religious ecology where gangs celebrate evangelical holiness and Evangelicals vicariously celebrate the machismo violence of gangs.”—Jon Bialecki, University of Edinburgh Negotiating Respect is an ethnographically rich investigation of Pentecostal Christianity—the Caribbean’s fastest growing religious movement—in the contemporary Dominican Republic. Within the context of urban poverty in a barrio of Villa Altagracia, Brendan Jamal Thornton considers the role of religious identity in the lives of young male churchgoers who navigate conversion as a transformative means of status acquisition, authority, and transition out of gang life. Thornton shows that conversion offers both spiritual and practical social value because it provides a strategic avenue for prestige and an acceptable way to transcend personal history.

Gateways to the New World
In Defiance of Boundaries
Bermuda, the Bahamas, and the Shaping of the Americas
Building a Nation
Anarchism in Latin American History
Caribbean Federation in the Black Diaspora
Edited by Geoffroy de Laforcade and Kirwin Shaffer
Keith L. Tinker “An important addition to not only Atlantic historiography but to the history writing of the Bahamas and Bermuda. A tremendous achievement.”—Clarence Maxwell, editor of Bermuda Journal of Archaeology and Maritime History Though often marginalized in histories of the Atlantic World, Bermuda and the Bahamas have been key in shaping the Americas. Their strategic location at the crossroad of New World commerce created opportunity for colonization and trade that few other colonies enjoyed. In this ambitious volume, Keith Tinker weaves a chronology that begins with the Age of Exploration and the arrival of Europeans in the Bahamas in 1492. He examines the role of these two archipelagos from the Revolutionary War and the Civil War through Prohibition, the Cold War, and the Space Age. Tinker concludes with a look at how these former havens for Atlantic pirates have transformed into financial and tourist meccas. Full of intrigue and development, economic boom and bust, piracy and philanthropy, and cultural and social warfare, Gateways to the New World is unique in its representation of the active, rather than just reactionary, roles that these island nations have played in the emergence of the Atlantic World. KEITH L. TINKER, executive director of the National Museum of the Bahamas, is the author of several books, including The Migration of Peoples from the Caribbean to the Bahamas.

“Furthers our understanding not just of anarchism in Latin America but of anarchism more generally.”—Mark Leier, author of Rebel Life
The initial push for a federation among British Caribbean colonies might have originated among the white elites, but the banner for federation was quickly picked up by AfroCaribbean activists who saw in the possibility of a united West Indian nation a means of securing political power and more. In Building a Nation, Eric Duke moves beyond the narrow view of federation as only relevant to Caribbean and British imperial histories. Exploring the relationships between the pursuit of Caribbean federation and Black Diaspora politics, Duke convincingly posits that federation was more than a regional endeavor; it was a diasporic, black nation building undertaking deeply immersed in ideas of racial unity, racial uplift, and black self-determination.

“An important contribution to a recent trend that sees anarchism not as derived from a European center but as a genuine Latin American phenomenon.” —Bert Altena, coeditor of Reassessing the Transnational Turn
Most studies on Latin America tend to dismiss anarchism as a prelude to populist and socialist movements. This collection illustrates a much more vast, differentiated, and active anarchist presence in the region that evolved on simultaneous—transnational, national, regional, and local—fronts. Representing a new wave of transnational scholarship, these essays examine urban and rural movements, indigenous resistance, race, gender, sexuality, and social and educational experimentation. The contributors offer a variety of perspectives on anarchism’s role in shaping ideas about nationalism, identity, organized labor, and counterculture across a wide swath of Latin America.

He is coauthor of The How and Why of World History and coeditor of Transculturality and Perceptions of the Immigrant Other. KIRWIN SHAFFER is associate professor of Latin American studies at Penn State University–Berks College.

“Sheds new light on one of the nineteenthcentury South’s most accomplished yet understudied writers.”—James M. Denham, coeditor of Echoes from a Distant Frontier “A lost writer returns to the page with vigor.”—Tracy J. Revels, author of Sunshine Paradise Mary Edwards Bryan became one of America’s best-known writers of popular fiction in the nineteenth century. She reached literary success despite a tough frontier life, the upheavals of secession and war, disruptive affairs with authors and politicians, the tensions of emancipation, and pervading post-war economic disorder. Pairing historical insights with selections of Bryan’s best writing, this book illustrates how the obstacles she overcame shaped what she wrote. Bryan’s life in Florida, Georgia, and Louisiana shows how men often oppressed women—in her case, as fathers and husbands— but also sometimes allowed aspiring women writers key opportunities as publishers and editors of literary journals. This book reintroduces to the world a courageous and creative talent who yearned to express herself while navigating the restrictive morals and conventions of Victorian society. CANTER BROWN JR., retired professor of history and political science at Fort Valley State University, is the author of Florida’s Peace River Frontier.

“The first study to consider, on a circumAtlantic scale, how conversion to Afro-Protestant Christianity encouraged a ‘middle path’ between exclusionist ethnic African identities and deracinated Atlantic creole identities.”—Douglas B. Chambers, author of The Igbo Diaspora in the Era of the Slave Trade In Embracing Protestantism, John Catron argues that people of African descent in America who adopted Protestant Christianity during the eighteenth century did not become African Americans but instead assumed more fluid Atlantic-African identities. America was then the land of slavery and white supremacy, where citizenship and economic mobility were off-limits to most people of color. In contrast, the Atlantic World offered access to the growing abolitionist movement in Europe. Catron examines how the wider Atlantic World allowed membership in transatlantic evangelical churches that gave people of color unprecedented power in their local congregations and contact with black Christians in West and Central Africa. It also channeled inspiration from the large black churches then developing in the Caribbean and from black missionaries. Unlike deracinated creoles who attempted to merge with white culture, people of color who became Protestants were “Atlantic Africans,” who used multiple religious traditions to restore cultural and ethnic connections. And this religious heterogeneity was a critically important way black Anglophone Christians resisted slavery. JOHN W. CATRON is an independent scholar living in Gainesville, Florida.
“A sweeping study of the distaff side of anti-communism/ anti-government conspiracy politics.”—Eileen Boris, coeditor of The Practice of U.S. Women’s History “Benowitz shows how the conservative women of the 1950s helped to lay the foundation for the ‘New Right.’”—Mary C. Brennan, author of Pat Nixon: Embattled First Lady In the mid-twentieth century, a grassroots movement of women—mostly white, middleclass, and conservative—sought to shape the political, cultural, and social ideologies of the baby boomers in what they perceived was a quickly changing world poisoned by communism. In Challenge and Change, June Melby Benowitz draws on a wide variety of primary sources to highlight the connections between the women of the Old Right, the New Right, and today’s Tea Party. Through interviews, as well as through their letters to presidents, editors, and one another, Benowitz allows these women to speak for themselves. She examines the issues that stirred them to action—education, health, desegregation, moral corruption, war, patriotism, and the Equal Rights Amendment—and explores the development of the right-wing women’s movement and its growth from the midtwentieth into the twenty-first century.

Wunderlin's guide brings together his years of work with the flora of Florida.”—Choice “An extremely valuable reference for professional biologists, naturalists, natural resource managers, and plant lovers.” —Economic Botany
Pedro Menéndez de Avilés (1519–1574) founded St. Augustine in 1565. His expedition was documented by his brother-in-law, Gonzalo Solís de Merás, who left a detailed and passionate account of the events leading to the establishment of America’s oldest city.
Praise for Flora of Florida, Volumes II and III
Until recently, the only extant version of Solís de Merás’s record was one single manuscript which Eugenio Ruidíaz y Caravia transcribed in 1893, and subsequent editions and translations have always followed Ruidíaz’s text. In 2012 David Arbesú discovered a more complete record: a manuscript including folios lost for centuries and, more important, excluding portions of the 1893 publication based on retellings rather than the original document.
With more than 4,000 kinds of native and non-native ferns and fern allies, nonflowering seed plants, and flowering seed plants, Florida has the third largest plant diversity of any state in the nation. Due to Florida’s mild climate, many non-native species—including major pest species—readily become naturalized, contributing nearly one-third of the species of known flora. Some of the plant species found in Florida, many of which are endangered, exist nowhere else in the world.
In the resulting volume, Pedro Menéndez de Avilés and the Conquest of Florida, Arbesú sheds light on principal events missing from the story of St. Augustine’s founding. By consulting the original chronicle, Arbesú provides readers with the definitive bilingual edition of this seminal text.
“A monumental undertaking and a definitive and up-to-date treatise on Florida’s dicotyledons. There is a fantastic wealth of information for every family and every species.”—Walter Kingsley Taylor, author of Florida Wildflowers: A Comprehensive Guide
Richard Wunderlin and Bruce Hansen provide a means to identify this vast array of plants with the only comprehensive identification manual and definitive guide to Florida’s flora. These second and third volumes include taxonomic keys to family, genus, and species, with families arranged alphabetically for easy reference. Entries include the current accepted scientific name of each species, the major nomenclatural synonyms, many common names, general habitat preferences, and, for plants not native to Florida, the place of origin. The complete Flora of Florida volumes will be the standard reference for years to come. RICHARD P. WUNDERLIN is professor emeritus of biology at the University of South Florida. BRUCE F. HANSEN is curator of biology at the University of South Florida Herbarium. Together, Wunderlin and Hansen have coauthored Flora of Florida, Volume I and Guide to the Vascular Plants of Florida, 3rd edition.
