Did Richard the Lionheart really die from just a crossbow wound, or was there foul play? Who are the two infant children buried in Tutankhamen’s tomb? Could a skull found in a tax collector’s attic be the long-lost head of Henri IV? In When Science Sheds Light on History, Philippe Charlier, the “Indiana Jones of the graveyards,” travels the globe with his forensics team to unravel these and other historic mysteries. To get answers, Charlier looks for clues in medical records, death masks, fingerprints, and bloodstains. He even enlists the help of perfume experts to smell and identify embalming materials. He reconstructs the face of Robespierre and analyzes charred bones attributed to Joan of Arc. He identifies toxic levels of gold in the hair of Diane de Poitiers, mistress of Henri II, and mercury poisoning in the body of Agnès Sorel, the “most beautiful woman” in fifteenth-century France. Charlier also pieces together the stories of people whose names and lives have long been forgotten. He investigates Stone Age graves, medieval necropolises, and museum collections. Playing the role of both crime scene investigator and forensic anthropologist, Charlier diagnoses a mummy with malaria, an ancient Greek child with Down syndrome, and a stately Roman with encephalitis. He studies accounts of divine cures from antiquity. He determines the origins of preserved heads of the Jivaro and Maori people to help museums return them to their clans. Exploring how our ancestors lived and how they died, the forty cases in this book tackle some of history’s most enduring questions and illustrate the power of science to reveal the secrets of the past.

Zombies An Anthropological Investigation of the Living Dead
PHILIPPE CHARLIER Translated by RICHARD J. GRAY II An up-close look at a secret world of the reanimated dead “A compelling account of the zombi as an anthropological reality and evocative symbol of a state of dispossession, desperation, and death.”—Roger Luckhurst, author of Zombies: A Cultural History “An adventurer’s anthropological quest offering a novel description of the contemporary zombie.”—Sarah Juliet Lauro, author of The Transatlantic Zombie “Displays an empathy for the cultural reality of the zombie in Haiti that delivers important insight into the island nation’s people and their lived realities.” —Christopher M. Moreman, coeditor of Race, Oppression and the Zombie As the popularity of TV series like The Walking Dead and Z Nation reveals, audiences don’t just welcome zombie lore—they crave it. But what most fans don’t know is that these creatures they believe to be fiction have ties to the very real phenomenon of the zombi in Haitian Vodou. In this book, forensic pathologist Philippe Charlier—the “Indiana Jones of the graveyards”—travels to the historic land of zombies to investigate the stories. He finds that in Haiti, the dead are a big part of daily life. Radio and TV shows often report of deceased and buried residents roaming the streets. Families fear that their loved ones may return from the grave, so much so that pallbearers will drive the departed to the cemetery on winding routes to prevent them from finding their way home. Some people spend their lives preparing their funerals and graves to ensure that they will not join the ranks of wandering souls after death. But are the stories true? Charlier’s investigations lead him to Vodou leader Max Beauvoir and other priests, who reveal how bodies can become reanimated. In some cases, sorcerers lure the dead from their graves and give them a potion concocted from the plant Devil’s Snare. Or sometimes secret societies use poudre zombi— “zombie powder” spiked with the tetrodotoxin found in blowfish—to punish wrongdoers. Charlier eagerly collects evidence, attending rituals and visiting cemeteries under the cloak of night. He makes atoning sacrifices. He visits the high security areas of psychiatric hospitals. He examines Vodou dolls by X-ray. Zombies follows Charlier’s journey to understand the fascinating and frightening world of Haiti’s living dead, inviting readers to believe the unbelievable.

THOMAS GRAHAM is professor emeritus of history at Flagler College. He is the author of several books including Mr. Flagler’s St. Augustine.
Before Hollywood, when America’s rising motion picture industry was based on the East Coast, early film stars like Rudolph Valentino, Ethel Barrymore, and Oliver Hardy made movies in St. Augustine, Florida. Silent Films in St. Augustine tells stories of the leading film producers and actors who escaped New York winters—and kept the studio doors open—in St. Augustine’s sunshine and warm weather. More than 120 films were made in St. Augustine from 1906 to 1926 by film companies such as Thanhouser, Lubin, Éclair, Pathé, Edison, and Vitagraph. The first full-length Frankenstein movie, Life Without Soul, was shot in St. Augustine. Theda Bara became a “vamp” sensation for her role in A Fool There Was. Sidney Drew acted in the gender-bending A Florida Enchantment. Noted directors Edwin S. Porter, Maurice Tourneur, Sidney Olcott, and George Fitzmaurice also set up shop in the beach town. Filmmakers used St. Augustine’s striking architecture to create backdrops for movies set in exotic foreign locales. The famous Castillo de San Marcos fort, the stone houses on the narrow streets, and Henry Flagler’s Spanish Renaissance palace hotels were reimagined as Spain, Italy, France, Egypt, Arabia, South Africa, Brazil, and Hawaii. Residents of St. Augustine loved seeing film teams in action on their streets and would gather around the camera to watch the actors and marvel at the outlandish costumes. Describing the lavish sets, theatrical action, and New York movie personalities that filled St. Augustine, this book evokes an intensely creative time and place in the history of American moviemaking.

Florida Soul From Ray Charles to KC and the Sunshine Band
JOHN CAPOUYA A second-to-none soul music heritage “Engaging and comprehensive. Spotlighting the rich and underappreciated histories of R&B, soul, funk, and disco in Florida, Capouya contributes greatly to our understanding of the music and its contexts.”—Charles L. Hughes, author of Country Soul: Making Music and Making Race in the American South “Capouya reaches back over eighty years to tell the often overlooked history of Florida’s vibrant soul music scene, painting the music and its makers with sympathetic insight and an eye for detail.”—Michael Lydon, author of Ray Charles: Man and Music “Capouya smoothly weaves together the diverse sounds of one of the key regions in American music history. He discusses Florida history, soul knowledge, and the arc of uneven racial progress and does it as gracefully as a Timmy Thomas wail.” —RJ Smith, author of The One: The Life and Music of James Brown

Alongside Memphis, Detroit, New Orleans, Macon, and Muscle Shoals, Florida has a rich soul music history—an important cultural legacy that has often gone unrecognized. Florida Soul celebrates great artists of the Sunshine State who have produced some of the most electric, emotive soul music America has ever heard. This book tells the story of Ray Charles’s musical upbringing in Florida, where he wrote his first songs and made his first recordings. It highlights the careers of Pensacola singers James and Bobby Purify and their producer, Papa Don Schroeder. It profiles Hank Ballard, who wrote the international hit song “The Twist” after seeing the dance in Tampa, and Gainesville singer Linda Lyndell. It describes the soul scene of Miami’s Overtown and Liberty City neighborhoods, home to Sam Moore of the legendary duo Sam and Dave, Willie Clarke and Johnny Pearsall of Deep City Records, and singer Helene Smith. Miami was also the longtime headquarters of Henry Stone, whose influential company T.K. Productions put out hits by Timmy Thomas, Latimore, Betty Wright, and KC and the Sunshine Band. Stone’s distribution deals influenced charts and radio airplay across the world. Born in the era of segregation with origins in gospel, rhythm and blues, and jazz, and reaching maturity during the civil rights movement, soul was one of the first music styles rooted in African American culture to cross over and gain a significant white audience. John Capouya draws on extensive interviews with surviving musicians to re-create the exciting atmosphere of the golden age of soul, establishing Florida as one of the great soul music capitals of the United States.
JOHN CAPOUYA is associate professor of journalism and writing at the University of Tampa. He is the author of Gorgeous George: The Outrageous Bad-Boy Wrestler Who Created American Pop Culture.

ANDREW K. FRANK is the Allen Morris Associate Professor of History at Florida State University. He is the author or editor of several books, including Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier.
Formed seemingly out of steel, glass, and concrete, with millions of residents from around the globe, Miami has ancient roots that can be hard to imagine today. Before the Pioneers takes readers back through forgotten eras to the stories of the people who shaped the land along the Miami River long before most modern histories of the city begin. Andrew Frank begins the chronicle of the Magic City’s long history 4,000 years ago when Tequesta Indians settled at the mouth of the river, erecting burial mounds, ceremonial centers, and villages. They created a network of constructed and natural waterways through the Everglades and trade routes to the distant Calusa on the west coast. Centuries later, the area became a stopover for Spanish colonists on their way to Havana, a haven where they could shelter from storms and obtain freshwater, lumber, and other supplies. Frank brings to life the vibrant colonies of fugitives and seafarers that formed on the shores of Biscayne Bay in the eighteenth century. He tells of the emergence of the tropical fruit plantations and the accompanying enslaved communities, as well as the military occupation during the Seminole Wars. Eventually, the small seaport town flourished with the coming of “pioneers” like Julia Tuttle and Henry Flagler who promoted the city as a place of luxury and brought new waves of residents from the North. Frank pieces together the material culture and the historical record of the Miami River to re-create the fascinating past of one of the world’s most influential cities.

ARCHITECTURE September 208 pp. | 10 x 7 | 137 color illus.
River and Road is a visual and narrative history of the architectural evolution and urban development of Southwest Florida as shown in Fort Myers, Florida. A top tourist destination to this day, the Gulf Coast city has been home to the winter estates of the rich and famous, including Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, and oil tycoon Ambrose McGregor. The city’s famed McGregor Boulevard continues to draw visitors with its eclectic blend of houses and unique histories dating back to the nineteenth century. As the twentieth century dawned, the reputation of Fort Myers as a haven for health cures, business opportunities, and tarpon fishing lured adventurers and opportunists. Hundreds of attractive homes of varied styles were designed for millionaires and magnates during the boom of the Roaring Twenties and beyond, and today houses representing every significant architectural period—including the Spanish, Mediterranean, Italian Renaissance, Greek, and Colonial Revivals—line the roadway along the Caloosahatchee River. Jared Beck and Pamela Miner share stories about the creators and owners of these one-of-a-kind properties, accompanied by striking photographs. Historic places have been carefully preserved and creatively renovated according to the visions of their owners, and modern designers have been drawn to the neighborhood to build masterpieces of their own. These dream homes showcase the work of nationally renowned and local architects including Henry Van Ryn, Gerrit de Gelleke, Nat Gaillard Walker, William Frizzell, Robert Matts, Bruce Gora, Kathryn Kelly, and Jeff Mudgett. With privileged access into many of the private residences, Beck and Miner unveil the historically and culturally vibrant neighborhoods at the heart of Fort Myers’s past and present.

Enjoy a taste of Florida’s history with this collection of hearty recipes inspired by Seminole cooking.
Florida Book Awards, Silver Medal for Florida Nonfiction Florida Historical Society Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Award “Compelling stories of people whose ideas about themselves changed as they struggled to understand new people and circumstances. . . . A rich tale of cross-cultural divisions and mutual disappointments.”—Journal of Southern History “Through an examination of Spanish, French, and English written accounts, Murphree contends that despite their differences, Florida’s European colonists all developed common attitudes towards the region’s native populations.” —Florida Historical Quarterly “Race and racism simply did not arrive to the shores of Florida. Instead, this volume demonstrates how racism emerged out of the frustrations and failures of the Spaniards, Frenchmen, and Britons to control the land and people of Florida.”—Andrew K. Frank, author of Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier Constructing Floridians explores the ways racial identities developed in peninsular Florida and beyond during the 300 years before the founding of the United States. Daniel Murphree shows how the peoples of Spain, France, and Great Britain and half a dozen Florida tribes—the Guale, Calusa, Timucuans, Apalachees, Creeks, and Seminoles—created understandings of one another and themselves. Murphree argues that the Europeans, frustrated by their inability to “tame” the peninsula, blamed the natives for their problems and that barriers between the Europeans and the Indians hardened over time. His focus on race and identity opens up a rare perspective on the story of Florida’s past. DANIEL S. MURPHREE, associate professor of history at the University of Central Florida, is the editor of Native America: A Stateby-State Historical Encyclopedia.

The Politics of Disaster
A Florida Paleoindian Site
Tracking the Impact of Hurricane Andrew
I. RANDOLPH DANIEL JR. and MICHAEL WISENBAKER “Represents another stepping stone toward our understanding of life in the Southeast 10,000– 11,000 years ago.”—Southeastern Archaeology “The Paleoindian component at Harney Flats is a benchmark in early [human] studies in Florida and the Southeast.”—North American Archaeologist “A definitive study of Paleoindians in Florida.”—Florida Anthropologist Discovered during construction of the I-75 corridor northeast of Tampa, the site of Harney Flats was a turning point in the archaeology of the southeastern United States. Beneath evidence of human settlement from the Middle Archaic period, researchers unearthed Paleoindian stone tools—representing a rare example of a stratified site in the Southeast with a Paleoindian occupation. The expansive excavations at Harney Flats demonstrated that significant land-based sites of early human settlement exist in Florida and are worth exploring. Harney Flats describes the excavation, which was praised for its state-of-the-art strategy and interpretive methods despite its sandy environment, and details the objects uncovered—projectile points, scrapers, adzes—and what they reveal about the lives of the people who used them. Including an update on relevant research since its first publication, this volume is the definitive account of a critical finding in the study of early human history. I. RANDOLPH DANIEL JR., professor of anthropology at East Carolina University, is the author of Hardaway Revisited: Early Archaic Settlement in the Southeast.

DAVID K. TWIGG “Examine[s] the political implications of one of the worst hurricanes to strike Florida, Andrew in 1992. . . . Twigg has assembled an impressive array of facts.” —Florida Historical Quarterly “[A] careful, nuanced approach in examining the effects of a hurricane on a region’s electoral politics at all levels of government, including localities sometimes neglected by American political science but central to disaster politics.” —Political Science Quarterly “A rigorous study of disaster’s impact on elected local and state political officials, on their electoral fortunes or misfortunes, and on the local political fabric of impacted jurisdictions.”—Richard T. Sylves, author of Disaster Policy and Politics: Emergency Management and Homeland Security “A significant contribution to the field of disaster studies.”—Naim Kapucu, coauthor of Disaster Vulnerability, Hazards and Resilience: Perspectives from Florida The way elected officials respond to natural disasters can leave a permanent mark on their political careers. In August 1992, as challengers and incumbents fought for an advantage in the upcoming elections, Hurricane Andrew overwhelmed South Florida, requiring local, state, and federal emergency responses. David Twigg uses newspaper stories, scholarly articles, and first-person interviews to explore the impact of this Category 5 hurricane—just the third to make landfall in the continental United States—on local and state political incumbents. This fascinating book reveals how elected officials adjusted their strategies and activities in the wake of the storm and points out the possible effects of other disaster events on political campaigns. DAVID K. TWIGG is former director of the Jack D. Gordon Institute of Public Policy and Citizenship Studies at Florida International University.

Geology of the Florida Keys
Florida Weather and Climate
EUGENE A. SHINN and BARBARA H. LIDZ
More Than Just Sunshine
“A joy to read from two of the most prominent geologists who have worked for the better part of their careers in the Florida Keys. Places important environmental focus on modern-day issues facing the island ecosystems, the health of Florida Bay, the nearshore areas, and ultimately the reef tract.”—Donald F. McNeill, University of Miami “A compelling narrative that weaves fascinating historical personalities and periods with the geological characteristics of the Florida Keys into a colorful tapestry. A fun, interesting, and informative read!” —Eugene C. Rankey, University of Kansas Two world-class geologists draw on their prolific fifty-year careers in this comprehensive guide to the geology and biology of the Florida Keys and Florida Bay. Eugene Shinn and Barbara Lidz dive into the past, present, and future of an area that has long been a natural laboratory for learning about coral reef formation and the origins of limestone. They explain how underlying Pleistocene topography controls the shapes of today’s coral reefs, how sea level rise created Florida Bay, and how hurricanes mold lime-mud banks and strip vegetation from the Florida Keys. They discuss the recent decline of coral reefs due to overpopulation, pollution, climate change, and other factors. The book even includes an itinerary for a hands-on three-day field trip, guiding visitors to the best places to see the famous reef formations and geologic processes of the Keys. EUGENE A. SHINN, courtesy professor of geological oceanography at the University of South Florida, is the author of Bootstrap Geologist: My Life in Science. He is the recipient of the Twenhofel Medal, the highest award given by the International Society of Sedimentary Geology. BARBARA H. LIDZ is scientist emerita with the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and sedimentologist with the USGS Center for Coastal and Watershed Studies in St. Petersburg, Florida.
JENNIFER M. COLLINS, ROBERT V. ROHLI, and CHARLES H. PAXTON “An outstanding explanation of Florida weather and climate processes and phenomena. A valuable read for all residents of the Sunshine State who spend time outdoors or on the water.” —Jason C. Senkbeil, University of Alabama “A unique and detailed overview of Florida weather as it relates to both small and large scale atmospheric circulations.” —Steven Lazarus, Florida Institute of Technology This book explores the conditions, forces, and processes behind Florida’s surprisingly varied and dynamic weather. Florida is home to two of the world’s major types of climate—tropical wet-dry and humid subtropical. It experiences more tornadoes per square mile and is more frequently affected by lightning and thunderstorms than any other state. Florida is vulnerable to fog, drought, and wildfires. And it is notorious for its most prominent natural event—the hurricane. Discussing Florida’s latitude, longitude, area, landscape, and population, as well as the position of the sun and the importance of evaporation and condensation, the authors break down the features that shape Florida’s remarkable weather. They explain the influence of atmospheric circulation patterns such as the Hadley cell, the Coriolis force, and the Bermuda-Azores high. They describe the impacts of cold, warm, stationary, and occluded fronts. The book also covers major weather incidents from Florida’s history and looks ahead to what climate change will mean for the state’s future. With many maps, helpful diagrams, and clear explanations, this book is an illuminating and accessible guide to Florida’s dramatic weather and climate. JENNIFER M. COLLINS is associate professor in the School of Geosciences at the University of South Florida. ROBERT V. ROHLI, professor of geography at Louisiana State University, is coauthor of Louisiana Weather and Climate. CHARLES H. PAXTON is an American Meteorological Society certified consulting meteorologist.

The Revolution That Failed Reconstruction in Natchitoches
ADAM FAIRCLOUGH “A masterful and revelatory examination of Reconstruction populated by a cast of compelling characters who leap to life in all their glory, gore, and pathos.” —Lawrence N. Powell, author of The Accidental City “Illuminates a complex period, city, and state and advances a reinterpretation of Reconstruction politics that is both welcome and overdue.”—Paul D. Escott, author of Uncommonly Savage The chaotic years after the Civil War are often seen as a time of uniquely American idealism—a revolutionary attempt to rebuild the nation that paved the way for the civil rights movement of the twentieth century. But Adam Fairclough rejects this prevailing view, challenging prominent historians such as Eric Foner and James McPherson. He argues that Reconstruction was, quite simply, a disaster, and that the civil rights movement triumphed despite it, not because of it. Fairclough takes readers to Natchitoches, Louisiana, a majorityblack parish deep in the cotton South. Home to a vibrant Republican Party led by former slaves, ex-Confederates, and free people of color, the parish was a bastion of Republican power and the ideal place for Reconstruction to have worked. Yet although it didn’t experience the extremes of violence that afflicted the surrounding region, Natchitoches fell prey to Democratic intimidation. Its Republican leaders were eventually driven out of the parish. Reconstruction failed, Fairclough argues, because the federal government failed to enforce the rights it had created. Congress had given the Republicans of the South and the Freedmen’s Bureau an impossible task—to create a new democratic order based on racial equality in an area tortured by deep-rooted racial conflict. Moving expertly between a profound local study and wider developments in Washington, The Revolution That Failed offers a sobering perspective on how Reconstruction affected African American citizens and what its long-term repercussions were for the nation. ADAM FAIRCLOUGH is professor emeritus of American history at Leiden University. He is the author of several books, including A Class of Their Own: Black Teachers in the Segregated South.
The Shadow of Selma Edited by JOE STREET and HENRY KNIGHT LOZANO “Deftly interrogates the past, present, and future of race and justice in the United States through the lens of the Selma campaign’s various meanings and legacies.”—John A. Kirk, author of Redefining the Color Line: Black Activism in Little Rock, Arkansas, 1940–1970 The Shadow of Selma provides a comprehensive assessment of the 1965 civil rights campaign, the historical memory of the marches, and the continuing relevance of and challenges to the Voting Rights Act. The essays consider Selma not just as a keystone event but, much like Ferguson today, as a transformative place: a supposedly unimportant location that became the focal point of epochal historical events. Contributors to this innovative volume examine the relationship between the memorable figures of the campaign—Martin Luther King Jr. and John Lewis, among others—and the thousands of other unheralded people who also crossed the Edmund Pettus Bridge on their way from Selma to Montgomery. They analyze networks that undergirded as well as opposed the movement, placing it in broader historical, political, and international contexts. Addressing the influential role of media representations from contemporary newspaper and television coverage to the 2014 Hollywood film by Ava DuVernay, several of the essays challenge the redemptive narrative that has shaped popular memory, one that glosses over ongoing racial problems. Finally, the volume explores the fifty-year legacy of the Voting Rights Act, with particular focus on Shelby County vs. Holder, which in 2013 seemed to suggest that the act had solved the disfranchisement problems of the civil rights era and was outdated. Taken together, the essays argue that while today the obstacles to racial equality may look different than a literacy test or a grim-faced Alabama state trooper, they are no less real. JOE STREET, senior lecturer in history at Northumbria University, is the author of Dirty Harry’s America: Clint Eastwood, Harry Callahan, and the Conservative Backlash and The Culture War in the Civil Rights Movement. HENRY KNIGHT LOZANO, senior lecturer in history and American studies at Northumbria University, is the author of Tropic of Hopes: California, Florida, and the Selling of American Paradise, 1869–1929.

The Seedtime, the Work, and the Harvest New Perspectives on the Black Freedom Struggle in America
Edited by JEFFREY L. LITTLEJOHN, REGINALD K. ELLIS, and PETER B. LEVY “A vital work: one that links and contextualizes activism in the present with over one hundred years of organizing, resisting, and rebelling against racial injustice.”—Sara Rzeszutek Haviland, author of James and Esther Cooper Jackson: Love and Courage in the Black Freedom Movement This volume expands the chronology and geography of the black freedom struggle beyond the traditional emphasis on the old South and the years between 1954 and 1968. Beginning as far back as the nineteenth century, and analyzing case studies from southern, northern, and border states, these essays incorporate communities and topics not usually linked to the African American civil rights movement. Contributors highlight little-known race riots in northern cities, the work of black women who defied local governments to provide medical care to their communities, and the national Food for Freedom campaign of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee. Moving to recent issues such as Ferguson, Sandra Bland, and Black Lives Matter, these chapters connect the activism of today to a deeply historical, wide-ranging fight for equality. JEFFREY L. LITTLEJOHN, associate professor of history at Sam Houston State University, is coauthor of Elusive Equality: Desegregation and Resegregation in Norfolk’s Public Schools. REGINALD K.

Between Washington Everybody’s and Du Bois Problem The Racial Politics of James Edward Shepard
The War on Poverty in Eastern North Carolina
REGINALD K. ELLIS
KAREN M. HAWKINS
“Resurrects from the annals of history one of the most understudied yet important black college administrators and race leaders of the twentieth century.”—Crystal R. Sanders, author of A Chance for Change: Head Start and Mississippi's Black Freedom Struggle “Provides a deep exploration of black higher education and its uneasy relationship with white politicians in the Jim Crow South. Always the pragmatist, Shepard, sometimes wisely and at other times unwisely, implemented strategies to establish and sustain important educational institutions in a major southern state.”—Dennis C. Dickerson, author of African American Preachers and Politics Between Washington and Du Bois describes the life and work of James Edward Shepard, the founder and president of the first statesupported black liberal arts college in the South—what is today known as North Carolina Central University. Arguing that black college presidents of the early twentieth century were not only academic pioneers but also race leaders, Reginald Ellis shows how Shepard played a vital role in the creation of a black professional class during the Jim Crow era. Rather than focusing on vocational skills, as did Booker T. Washington, or emphasizing the liberal arts exclusively, as did W. E. B. Du Bois, Shepard steered a course between these two perspectives by considering the most practical ways to make higher education available to African Americans. At times, he accommodated his state’s segregationist regime in order to keep his school open and funded. Yet he never lost sight of his goal of radical racial uplift. Shepard’s story illustrates the gradualist strategy used by many of his peers in academic leadership who successfully navigated the currents of southern white supremacy and northern black radicalism. REGINALD K. ELLIS is assistant professor of history at Florida A&M University.
“Offers a new interpretation of the war on poverty by demonstrating the centrality of moderate local leadership (both white and black) in launching and operating antipoverty programs.”—Marisa Chappell, author of The War on Welfare While many scholars have argued that confrontation and protest were the most effective ways for the poor to empower themselves during the social change of the 1960s, Karen Hawkins demonstrates that moderate, local leadership and biracial cooperation were sometimes just as forceful. Everybody’s Problem shows these values at play in the nation’s first rural Community Action Agency to receive federal funding as a part of Lyndon B. Johnson’s War on Poverty. Karen Hawkins describes the founding of Craven Operation Progress in North Carolina, discusses the philosophies and tactics of its directors, and outlines the tensions that arose between local leadership and federal control. Using previously untapped primary sources including oral interviews with antipoverty workers and local citizens, records from the U.S. Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, and documents from the North Carolina Fund, Hawkins adds to the story of the factors that helped lower poverty rates and advance economic development during the 1960s and beyond. KAREN M. HAWKINS is a social studies teacher at Voyager Academy High School in North Carolina. A volume in the series Southern Dissent, edited by Stanley Harrold and Randall M. Miller

“A compelling case for the prominent role of presidents in the social and economic fabric of American life.” —Vicki Howard, author of From Main Street to Mall: The Rise and Fall of the American Department Store Tracing the development of the U.S. presidency since Harry S. Truman took office in 1945, this volume describes the many ways the president’s actions have affected the development of capitalism in the post–World War II era. Contributors show how the American “Consumer-in-Chief” has exerted a decisive hand as well as behind-the-scenes influence on the national economy and everyday American life. The essays in this volume highlight the president’s impact on various areas including work, gender discrimination and affirmative action, student loans, retirement planning, the credit card economy, the federal budget, cities, poverty, energy, computers, and genetic engineering. They argue that by supporting policies that helped American businesses grow in all sectors, the president has helped domestic companies expand internationally and has added to a global image of the United States that is deeply intertwined with its leading corporations.

“Addresses fascinating aspects of obtaining justice in Florida: both historical court systems before Florida became a state and alternative courts operating within Florida now. Anyone with an interest in the diversity of Florida’s legal past and present will find this book invaluable.”—Mary E. Adkins, author of Making Modern Florida: How the Spirit of Reform Shaped a New State Constitution Pushing past the standard federal-state narrative, the essays in Florida’s Other Courts examine eight little-known Florida courts. In doing so, they fill a longstanding gap in the state’s legal literature. In part one, the contributors profile Florida’s courts under the Spanish and British empires and during its existence as a U.S. territory and a member of the Confederate States of America. In part two, they describe four modern-era courts: those governing military personnel stationed in Florida; adherents of specific religious faiths in Florida; residents of Miami’s black neighborhoods during the waning days of Jim Crow segregation; and members of the Miccosukee and Seminole Indian tribes. Including extensive notes, a detailed index, and a complete table of cases, this volume offers a new and compelling look at the development of justice in Florida. ROBERT M.

“Breathes new life into the borderlands debate by reinforcing that ‘borderlands’ are more than mere locations—they are also imagined spaces and metaphorical tools with which scholars can explore the commonalities of human experiences across time and place.”—Kristofer Ray, author of Middle Tennessee, 1775–1825: Progress and Popular Democracy on the Southwestern Frontier “Offers a wide-ranging tour of some of North America’s most intriguing borderlands contexts. A smart and timely collection.”—Brian DeLay, editor of North American Borderlands Broadening the idea of “borderlands” beyond its traditional geographic meaning, this volume features new ways of characterizing the political, cultural, religious, and racial fluidity of early America. Borderland Narratives extends the concept to the Ohio Valley and other North American regions not typically seen as borderlands, far from the northern Spanish colonial frontier. It also shows how the term has been used in recent years to describe unstable spaces where people, cultures, and viewpoints collide. A timely assessment of the dynamic field of borderland studies, this volume argues that the interpretive model of borders is essential to understanding the history of the colonial United States.

Key to the New World Creole Clay A History of Early Colonial Cuba
Heritage Ceramics in the Contemporary Caribbean
PATRICIA J. FAY
“A splendid work of historical craftsmanship. In tone and content it offers a generally balanced survey of Cuban history through the end of the seventeenth century and in this regard it promises to offer a very usable introductory text. The writing is accessible and thoughtful, organized around an informative and engaging narrative.”—Louis A. Pérez Jr., author of On Becoming Cuban
“Brings quotidian Caribbean ceramic wares to life as material expressions of cultural adaptation and markers of the region’s socioeconomic history.” —Michael R. McDonald, author of Food Culture in Central America
Scholarly and popular attention tends to focus heavily on Cuba’s recent history: its notoriety as the world’s largest exporter of sugar and the Western hemisphere’s first socialist nation. Key to the New World fills the gap in our knowledge of the island before 1700, examining Cuba’s formative centuries in depth. Luis Martínez-Fernández presents a holistic portrait of the island nation, interrelating its geography, economy, society, politics, and culture. He weaves these threads into a narrative that begins with the first arrival of indigenous people 10,000 years ago. He explores the conquest and establishment of colonial rule and how the island’s geographic uniqueness made it an ideal launching pad for Spanish conquests into Central America, Mexico, and Florida. While considering the role of Cuba and the Caribbean as a theater for European power struggles, Martínez-Fernández also focuses intimately on the people who both influenced and were influenced by these larger, impersonal forces. In these often-overlooked centuries, Martínez-Fernández finds the roots of many of Cuba’s enduring economic, political, social, and cultural complexities. The result is a sweeping history, a seminal text that makes clear that to fully grasp revolutionary or contemporary Cuba we must first understand what came before. LUIS MARTÍNEZ-FERNÁNDEZ, professor of history at the University of Central Florida, is the author of Revolutionary Cuba: A History.
“Weaves a complex history that links the Caribbean with Africa, Europe, the Americas, and India and draws together threads from indigenous cultures to the impact of the slave trade, indentured workers, colonial rulers, postcolonial politics, and global tourism.” —Moira Vincentelli, author of Women Potters: Transforming Traditions Beautifully illustrated with colorful photographs, this volume traces the living heritage of locally made pottery in the English-speaking Caribbean. Patricia Fay combines her own expertise in making ceramics with two decades of interviews, visits, and participant-observation in the region, providing a perspective that is technically informed and anthropologically rigorous. Describing the pottery created in Saint Lucia, Nevis, Antigua, Jamaica, Barbados, Trinidad, and Guyana, Fay reveals that the traditional skills of local potters are inherited from diverse points of origin in Africa, Europe, India, and the Americas. She explores the challenges that lie ahead for this utilitarian art form as the tourist industry expands, showing how heritage ceramics exemplify the continuing Caribbean encounter between old and new, local and global, and traditional and contemporary.
American Interventions and Modern Art in South America OLGA U. HERRERA “An important work that offers a compelling narrative charting the deployment of art within the framework of U.S. and South American relations during an intense historical moment whose aftereffects reverberate to this day.” —Alejandro Anreus, author of Luis Cruz Azaceta “A comprehensive study about how and why U.S. agencies and institutions launched programs involving Latin American visual art, cinema, design, graphic art, and crafts during the World War II era.”—Claire F. Fox, author of Making Art Panamerican: Cultural Policy and the Cold War This book tells the little-known story of how the United States used modern art as a cultural defense strategy in South America during World War II. Organized by Nelson A. Rockefeller, the Office of the Coordinator of Inter-American Affairs supported traveling exhibitions of American paintings, furniture and poster design competitions for artists across both hemispheres, widespread distribution of films with South American themes, and circulation of Latin American art within the United States. These exchanges of art and ideas were meant to counter negative views of U.S. culture spread by Nazi and totalitarian sympathizers. Olga Herrera shows how the program was an unprecedented public-private model of support for the arts, a driving force in the emergence of a Latin American art market in the United States, and a foundation for global art networks still in place today.

RAMOS “Situates key films, poetry, popular songs, and fiction at the crossroad of Latin America’s decolonial theory and Ranciere’s ‘aisthesis.’ Incisively delving into the conditions of production corresponding to the multimedia texts analyzed, this book produces a compelling discussion of ‘decolonial aesthetics.’” —Sara Castro-Klarén, author of The Narrow Pass of Our Nerves: Writing, Coloniality and Post-Colonial Theory Bringing Latin American popular art out of the margins and into the center of serious scholarship, this book rethinks the cultural canon and recovers previously undervalued cultural forms as art. Juan Ramos uses “decolonial aesthetics,” a theory that frees the idea of art from Eurocentric forms of expression and philosophies of the beautiful, to examine the long decade of the 1960s in Latin America— a time of cultural production that has not been studied extensively from a decolonial perspective. Ramos looks at examples of “antipoetry,” unconventional verse that challenges canonical poets and often addresses urgent social concerns. He analyzes the militant popular songs of nueva canción by musicians such as Mercedes Sosa and Violeta Parra. He discusses films that use visually shocking images and melodramatic effects to tell the stories of Latin American nations. These art forms, he argues, appeal to an aesthetic that involves all the senses. Instead of being outdated byproducts of their historical moments, they continue to influence Latin American cultural production today. JUAN G. RAMOS, associate professor of Spanish at College of the Holy Cross, is coeditor of Decolonial Approaches to Latin American Literatures and Cultures.
Postnational Perspectives on Contemporary Hispanic Literature
Telling Migrant Stories
Edited by HEIKE SCHARM and NATALIA MATTA JARA
Edited by ESTEBAN E. LOUSTAUNAU and LAUREN E. SHAW
“Offers an array of disciplinary views on how theories of globalization and an emerging postnational critical imagination have impacted traditional ways of thinking about literature.”—Samuel Amago, author of Spanish Cinema in the Global Context: Film on Film Moving beyond the traditional study of Hispanic literature on a nation-by-nation basis, this volume explores how globalization is currently affecting Spanish and Latin American fiction, poetry, and literary theory. Taking a postnational approach, contributors examine works by José Martí, Carlos Ruiz Zafón, Junot Díaz, Mario Vargas Llosa, Cecilia Vicuña, Jorge Luis Borges, and other writers. They discuss how expanding worldviews have impacted the way these authors write and how they are read today. Whether analyzing the increasingly popular character of the voluntary exile, the theme of masculinity in This Is How You Lose Her, or the multilingual nature of the Spanish language itself, they show how contemporary Hispanic writers and critics are engaging in cross-cultural literary conversations. Drawing from a range of fields including postcolonial, Latino, gender, exile, and transatlantic studies, these essays help characterize a new “world” literature that reflects changing understandings of memory, belonging, and identity. HEIKE SCHARM, associate professor of Spanish at the University of South Florida, is the author of El Tiempo y el Ser en Javier Marías. NATALIA MATTA JARA is a Spanish teacher at Sidwell Friends School in Washington, D.C.
Latin American Diaspora in Documentary Film
“Excellent and comprehensive.”—David William Foster, author of São Paulo This volume explores how contemporary documentary film gives voice to Latin American immigrants whose stories would not otherwise be heard. Contributors analyze films including Harvest of Empire, Sin País, The Vigil, De Nadie, Operation Peter Pan: Flying Back to Cuba, Abuelos, La Churona, and Which Way Home as well as internet documentaries distributed via platforms like YouTube. They examine the ways these films highlight the individual agency of immigrants as well as the global systemic conditions that lead to mass migrations from Latin American countries to the United States and Europe. The collection also features interviews with filmmakers Luis Argueta, Jenny Alexander, Tin Dirdamal, Heidi Hassan, and María Cristina Carrillo Espinosa. Their discussions emphasize that because the genre is grounded in fact rather than fiction, it has the ability to profoundly impact audiences. Documentaries prompt viewers to recognize the many worlds migrants depart from, to become immersed in the struggles portrayed, and to consider the stories of immigrants with compassion and solidarity. ESTEBAN E. LOUSTAUNAU is associate professor of Spanish at Assumption College. LAUREN E. SHAW, associate professor of Spanish at Elmira College, is the editor of Song and Social Change in Latin America.

Resistance Reimagined Black Women’s Critical Thought as Survival
REGIS M. FOX “Offers fresh insights into nineteenth-century black women’s cultural production. Compelling and elegantly crafted.”—Kathy L. Glass, author of Courting Communities: Black Female Nationalism and “Syncre-Nationalism” in the Nineteenth-Century North “Outstanding in explaining why these figures were important leaders in their own time and are important models today. A truly engaging and significant study.”—John Ernest, editor of Douglass in His Own Time Looking closely at nineteenth-century texts and twentieth-century novels written by African American women about antebellum America, Resistance Reimagined highlights examples of black women’s activism within a society that spoke so much of freedom but granted it so selectively. This book introduces readers to types of resistance that differ from the militancy and violence often associated with activism, and it confronts expectations about what African American literature can and should be. Regis Fox analyzes the work of authors including Anna Julia Cooper, Elizabeth Keckly, Harriet Wilson, and Sherley Anne Williams. Connected by their intellectualism, these thinkers are astutely attuned to the areas of American society that notions of liberalism and progress do not reach. The world they portray in their work is built on philosophical contradictions, legal paradoxes, and incoherent social practices that support white supremacy. Fox shows how these women use their writing to protest antiblack violence, reject superficial reform, call for major sociopolitical change, and challenge the false promises of American democracy. REGIS M. FOX is assistant professor of English at Grand Valley State University.
Joyce and the Law
Edited by JONATHAN GOLDMAN
The Judgment Poetry Tradition in the Later Middle Ages and Beyond
“A capacious, generative, and important collection with far-ranging implications for Joyce studies and for our understanding of literature’s relationship to law.”—Ravit Reichman, author of The Affective Life of Law “Gives us a new map of the busy intersection of Joyce and law. This volume’s contributors rise to the challenge, taking on everything from laws of marriage, immigration, and finance to regimes of intellectual property, libel, and obscenity.”—Paul K. Saint-Amour, author of Tense Future “Draws together an international cohort of Joyce scholars with specialist knowledge in legal considerations shaping events and characters’ motivations in Joyce’s writing.” —Margot Gayle Backus, author of Scandal Work Making the case that legal issues are central to James Joyce’s life and work, international experts in law and literature offer new insights into Joyce’s most important texts. They analyze Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Giacomo Joyce, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake in light of the legal contexts of Joyce’s day. Topics include marriage laws, the Aliens Act of 1905, laws governing display and use of language, minority rights debates, municipal self-government, and regulations on alcohol consumption and licensing. This volume also highlights Joyce’s own fascination with law and legal inquiry, his use of a “trademark” visual and linguistic style, the obscenity cases brought against Ulysses, and how copyright has affected publication of Joyce’s work. These discussions show how reading Joyce alongside the law enriches both legal studies and literary scholarship. JONATHAN GOLDMAN, assistant professor of English at New York Institute of Technology, is the author of Modernism Is the Literature of Celebrity and coeditor of Modernist Star Maps: Celebrity, Modernity, Culture. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles
Edited by R. BARTON PALMER and BURT KIMMELMAN “Deepens our appreciation of the poet’s wide-ranging accomplishments and influences, which span from the Middle Ages to the postmodern era. It stakes out exciting new territories and provocative theses, all of which enhance our understanding of this genius of world literature.”—Tison Pugh, author of Chaucer’s (Anti-)Eroticisms and the Queer Middle Ages “This richly erudite volume contextualizes Machaut as a seminal medieval poet whose work extends its reach well into the modern era.”—Lynn T. Ramey, author of Black Legacies In a daring rewrite of literary history, this volume argues that the medieval poet and musician Guillaume de Machaut was the major influence in narrative craft during the late Middle Ages and long after. Examining Machaut’s series of debate poems, part of the French tradition of the “dit amoureux” (love tales), contributors highlight the genre’s authorial self-consciousness, polyvocality, and ambiguity of judgment. They contend that Machaut led the way in developing and spreading these radical techniques and that his innovations in form and content were forerunners of the modern novel. R. BARTON PALMER, Calhoun Lemon Professor of Literature and director of film studies at Clemson University, is coeditor of An Anthology of Medieval Love Debate Poetry.

Perspectives on American Dance The Twentieth Century
Perspectives on American Dance The New Millennium
Edited by JENNIFER ATKINS, SALLY R. SOMMER, and TRICIA HENRY YOUNG “This is a picture of American dance—and a picture of America through dance—as we have not conceived of it before, advancing the bold and capacious idea that movement can illuminate who Americans are and who they want to be. A startlingly original compilation that includes stops in the unlikeliest places, it makes the case that following the moving body into every byway of life reveals an America that has been hiding in plain sight. It will be impossible to think of this subject in the same way again.”—Suzanne Carbonneau, George Mason University and scholar in residence, Jacob’s Pillow “Unpredictable. Counterintuitive. Stunningly conceived. So you think you know dance history? These anthologies are full of revelations.”—Mindy Aloff, editor of Leaps in the Dark The two volumes of Perspectives on American Dance are the first anthologies in over twentyfive years to focus exclusively on American dance practices across a wide span of American culture. They show how social experience, courtship, sexualities, and other aspects of life in America are translated through dancing into spatial patterns, gestures, and partner relationships. Essays in these collections address rarely studied topics in American dance and offer unexpected perspectives on commonly studied dance forms. The first volume, The Twentieth Century, explores a variety of subjects: white businessmen in Prescott, Arizona, who created a “Smoki tribe” that performed “authentic” Hopi dances for over seventy years; swing dancing by Japanese-American teens in World War II internment camps; African American jazz dancing in the work of ballet choreographer Ruth Page; dancing in early Hollywood movie musicals; how critics identified “American” qualities in the dancing of ballerina Nana Gollner; the politics of dancing with the American flag; English Country Dance as translated into American communities; Bob Fosse’s sociopolitical choreography; and early break dancing as Latino political protest. The second volume, The New Millennium, features essays by a young generation of writers who look at the kinds of social dancing that speak to new audiences through new media. Topics include “dorky dancing” on YouTube; same-sex competitors on the TV show So You Think You Can Dance; the racial politics of NFL touchdown dances; the commercialization of flash mobs; the connections between striptease and corporate branding; how 9/11 affected dance; the criminalization of New York City club dancing; and the joyous ironies of hipster dance. This volume emphasizes how dancing is becoming more social and interactive as technology opens up new ways to create and distribute dance. These two volumes show how dancing functions as a template for American identity. The accessible essays in these anthologies use a combination of movement analysis, thematic interpretation, and historical context to convey the vitality and variety of American dance.

Life and Death on the Nile A Bioethnography of Three Ancient Nubian Communities
GEORGE J. ARMELAGOS and DENNIS P. VAN GERVEN “A gem. Armelagos and Van Gerven’s research on the skeletal biology of one region of the Nile Valley offers an engaging history of science as told through physical anthropology.”—Alan C. Swedlund, coeditor of Plagues and Epidemics: Infected Spaces Past and Present A monumental synthesis of a half century of research, this book investigates three communities from the ancient Nubian civilization of the Nile River Valley. Excavations in this region first inspired the “biocultural approach” to human biology now used by anthropologists worldwide, and Life and Death on the Nile exemplifies the very best of this perspective. It is the life’s work of two highly accomplished anthropologists. George Armelagos and Dennis Van Gerven present studies of cranial morphology and evolution in Nubian populations. They look at patterns of physiological stress and disease, as well as growth and development, in infants and children. They study bone fractures and age-related bone loss in adults, and they discuss case studies of diseases such as cancers and congenital defects. Focusing on the link between human biology and the cultural and natural environment, they provide a holistic view of the lives of ancient Nubian peoples. GEORGE J. ARMELAGOS (1936–2014) was the Goodrich C. White Professor of Anthropology at Emory University. One of the founders of the field of bioarchaeology, he was coeditor of Paleopathology at the Origins of Agriculture. DENNIS P. VAN GERVEN is professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Colorado Boulder.
A World View of Bioculturally Modified Teeth Edited by SCOTT E. BURNETT and JOEL D. IRISH “Brings together studies from diverse time periods and geographic regions to deliver a comprehensive biocultural treatment of dental modification. The volume amply documents the diversity of ways humans modify their teeth and the variety of reasons they may do so.”—Debbie Guatelli-Steinberg, author of What Teeth Reveal about Human Evolution Tooth modification has been practiced throughout many time periods and places to convey information about individual people, their societies, and their relationships to others. This volume represents the wide spectrum of intentional dental modification in humans across the globe over the past 16,000 years. These essays draw on research from the Americas, Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Europe. Through archaeological studies, historical and ethnographic sources, and observations of contemporary people, they examine instances of tooth filing, inlays, dyeing, and removal. Contributors discuss how to distinguish between purposeful modifications of teeth and normal wear and tear or disease. This collection demonstrates what patterns of tooth modification can reveal about people and their cultures in the past and present. SCOTT E. BURNETT is professor of anthropology at Eckerd College. JOEL D. IRISH, professor of bioarchaeology at Liverpool John Moores University and professor emeritus of anthropology at the University of Alaska Fairbanks, is coauthor or coeditor of several books, including A Companion to Dental Anthropology.

Reading the Bones Activity, Biology, and Culture
ELIZABETH WEISS “This is the first volume to take such a comprehensive approach to this timely subject. It will make a wonderful reference book for those working on reconstructing past lifeways.” —Marie E. Danforth, University of Southern Mississippi “Provides key information on the underlying biology of activity patterns and abundant perspectives on the relevant literature. Reading the Bones will pave the way to new, thoughtful research.”—Douglas H. Ubelaker, editor of Forensic Science: Current Issues, Future Directions What can bones tell us about past lives? Do different bone shapes, sizes, and injuries reveal more about people’s genes or about their environments? Reading the Bones tackles this question, guiding readers through one of the most hotly debated topics in bioarchaeology. Elizabeth Weiss assembles evidence from anthropological work, medical and sports studies, occupational studies, genetic twin studies, and animal research. She focuses on skeletal features such as measurements from cross-sectional geometries; entheseal changes, or locations of muscle attachments; osteoarthritis, which has often been thought to result from wear and tear on joints; stress fractures and hernias; and bone facets, which have been thought to come from frequent kneeling, squatting, or weight-bearing. This thorough survey of activity indicators in bones helps us understand which markers are mainly due to human biology and which are truly useful in reconstructing lifestyle patterns of the past. ELIZABETH WEISS, professor of anthropology at San Jose State University, is the author of Paleopathology in Perspective: Bone Health and Disease through Time.

Ancient Psychoactive Substances Edited by SCOTT M. FITZPATRICK “This fascinating volume not only demonstrates the important cultural role of psychoactive substances in ancient societies but also points the way to an emerging research field. The unveiling of the past history of drug use becomes a lesson for present-day society.” —Jan G. Bruhn, founding editor, Journal of Ethnopharmacology “Presents a broad overview of drug plants and fermented beverages by using anthropological, ethnological, archaeological, iconographic, chemical, and botanical approaches. Essential reading.”—Elisa Guerra Doce, author of Drugs in Prehistory: Archaeological Evidence of the Use of Psychoactive Substances in Europe Tracing evidence of mind-altering substances across a diverse range of ancient cultures, this collection explores how and why past civilizations harvested, manufactured, and consumed drugs. Case studies examine the use of stimulants, narcotics, and depressants by hunter-gatherers who roamed Africa and Eurasia, prehistoric communities in North and South America, and Maya kings and queens. Offering perspectives from many different fields of study, contributors illustrate the wide variety of sources and techniques that can provide information about materials that are often invisible to archaeologists. They use advanced biomolecular procedures to identity alkaloids and resins on cups, pipes, and other artifacts. They interpret paintings on vases and discuss excavations of breweries and similar sites. Uncovering signs of drugs including ayahuasca, peyote, ephedra, cannabis, tobacco, yaupon, vilca, and maize and molle beer, they explain how psychoactive substances were integral to interpersonal relationships, religious practices, and social cohesion in antiquity.

FITZPATRICK, professor of archaeology at the University of Oregon, is coeditor of Island Shores, Distant Pasts: Archaeological and Biological Approaches to the Pre-Columbian Settlement of the Caribbean.
Landscapes of the Itza
War Owl Falling Innovation, Creativity, and Culture Change in Ancient Maya Society
Archaeology and Art History at Chichen Itza and Neighboring Sites
Edited by LINNEA WREN, CYNTHIA KRISTAN-GRAHAM, TRAVIS NYGARD, and KAYLEE SPENCER “An insightful collection, rich in new data and insights; at once the harvest of a generation of fieldwork and the foundation for work to come.”—Mary E. Miller, coauthor of The Spectacle of the Late Maya Court “Reminds us that there are always new things to learn about iconic places like Chichen Itza and that we can fall in love with them all over again.”—Jennifer P. Mathews, coeditor of Lifeways in the Northern Maya Lowlands Chichen Itza, the legendary capital and trading hub of the late Maya civilization, continues to fascinate visitors and researchers with unanswered questions about its people, rulers, rituals, and politics. Addressing many of these current debates, Landscapes of the Itza asks when the city’s construction was completed, what the purposes of its famous pyramid and other buildings were, how the city’s influence was felt in smaller neighboring settlements, and whether the city maintained strict territorial borders. Special attention is given to the site’s visual culture, including its architecture, ceramics, sculptures, and murals. This volume is a much-needed update on recent archaeological and art historical work being done at Chichen Itza, offering new ways of understanding the site and its role in the Yucatan landscape. LINNEA WREN, professor emerita of art history at Gustavus Adolphus College, is the editor of the two-volume Perspectives on Western Art.

“Offers a unique and important perspective on Classic Maya society through the lens of innovation. Eberl’s work is richly grounded in a multidisciplinary approach that weaves archaeological data with epigraphy, iconography, and comparative social theory.”—Andrew K. Scherer, author of Mortuary Landscapes of the Classic Maya Drawing on archaeological findings from the Maya lowlands, War Owl Falling shows how innovation and creativity led to social change in ancient societies. Markus Eberl discusses the ways eighth-century Maya (and Maya commoners in particular) reinvented objects and signs that were associated with nobility, including scepters, ceramic vessels, ballgame equipment, and the symbol of the owl. These inventions, he argues, reflect assertions of independence and a redistribution of power that contributed to the Maya collapse in the Late Classic period. Eberl emphasizes that individual decisionmaking—the ability to imagine alternate worlds and to act on that vision—plays a large role in changing social structure over time. Pinpointing where and when these Maya inventions emerged, how individuals adopted them and why, War Owl Falling connects technological and social change in a novel way. MARKUS EBERL, associate professor of anthropology at Vanderbilt University, is the author of Community and Difference: Change in Late Classic Maya Villages of the Petexbatun Region and coauthor of Muerte, entierro y ascención: Ritos funerarios entre los antiguos mayas.

Cuban Cultural Heritage
The Rosewood Massacre
A Rebel Past for a Revolutionary Nation
An Archaeology and History of Intersectional Violence
PABLO ALONSO GONZÁLEZ
“Aptly shows how cultural and historical heritage have played a key role during a century of deep social and political change in Cuba.”—Carmen Ortiz García, Spanish National Research Council Cuban Cultural Heritage explores the role that cultural heritage and museums played in the construction of a national identity in postcolonial Cuba. Starting with independence from Spain in 1898 and moving through CubanAmerican rapprochement in 2014, Pablo Alonso González illustrates how political and ideological shifts have influenced ideas about heritage and how, in turn, heritage has been used by different social actors to reiterate their status, spread new ideologies, and consolidate political regimes. Unveiling the connections between heritage, power, and ideology, Alonso González delves into the intricacies of Cuban history, covering key issues such as Cuba’s cultural and political relationships with Spain, the United States, the Soviet Union, and so-called Third World countries; the complexities of Cuba’s status as a postcolonial state; and the potential future paths of the Revolution in the years to come. This volume offers a detailed look at the function and place of cultural heritage under socialist states. PABLO ALONSO GONZÁLEZ is postdoctoral researcher at the Institute of Social Sciences, University of Lisbon. He is the author of several books, including Cultural Parks and National Heritage Areas: Assembling Cultural Heritage, Development and Spatial Planning.

“An innovative, forward-thinking, and sensitive account. The use of multiple lines of evidence, combined with a strong GIS component, significantly advances knowledge about racially motivated violence and speaks directly to cultural resilience in the face of power and domination.”—Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America “González-Tennant’s original archaeological analyses reveal new information about the Rosewood pogrom and provide us with significant insights into the nature of racial violence (past and present) in the United States.” —Randall H. McGuire, author of Archaeology as Political Action The Rosewood Massacre investigates the 1923 massacre that devastated the predominantly African American community of Rosewood, Florida. The town was burned to the ground by neighboring whites, and its citizens fled for their lives. None of the perpetrators were convicted. Very little documentation of the event and the ensuing court hearings survives today. Edward González-Tennant uses archaeology to uncover important elements of the forgotten history of Rosewood. He draws on cuttingedge GIS mapping, geospatial technology, census data, artifacts from excavations at the site, and archaeological theory to explore the local circumstances and broader sociopolitical power structures that led to the massacre. He shows how the event was a microcosm of the oppression and terror suffered by people of African heritage in the United States, and he connects these historic forms of racial violence to present-day social and racial inequality. EDWARD GONZÁLEZ-TENNANT is visiting lecturer of anthropology at the University of Central Florida. A volume in the series Cultural Heritage Studies, edited by Paul A. Shackel
Critical Theory and the Anthropology of Heritage Landscapes MELISSA F. BAIRD “Cutting-edge. Builds on innovative fieldwork across three continents to offer a sophisticated take on the political and cultural complexities of landscapes exploited by resource-extraction industries.”—Laurajane Smith, author of Uses of Heritage “An engaging overview of how large multinational companies use the concept of heritage to reposition their work within discourses about environmental sustainability and resilience.”—Paul Lane, Uppsala University This book explores the sociopolitical contexts of heritage landscapes, paying special attention to sites with deep indigenous histories— Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park and the Burrup Peninsula along the Pilbara Coast in Australia, the Altai Mountains of northwestern Mongolia, and Prince William Sound in Alaska. For many communities, landscapes such as these have long been associated with cultural identity and memories of important and difficult events, as well as political struggles related to nation-state boundaries, sovereignty, and knowledge claims. Drawing on the emerging field of critical heritage theory and the concept of “resource frontiers,” Melissa Baird shows how these landscapes are sites of power and control and are increasingly used in development and extractive projects. As a result, heritage landscapes face social and ecological crises such as environmental degradation, ecological disasters, and structural violence. She describes how heritage experts, industries, government representatives, and descendant groups negotiate the contours and boundaries of these contested sites, and recommends ways such conversations can better incorporate a critical engagement with indigenous knowledge and agency.

Mobilizing Heritage Anthropological Practice and Transnational Prospects
KATHRYN LAFRENZ SAMUELS “Compelling, energizing, and foundational. Opens up an anthropological orientation, one which is welcome and exhilarating. Lafrenz Samuels’s equally significant introduction of the transnational as a new orientation in heritage studies offers an escape route from the conception of heritage as monopolized by the nation-state.”—Denis Byrne, author of Counterheritage: Critical Perspectives on Heritage Conservation in Asia Mapping out emerging areas for global cultural heritage, this book provides an anthropological perspective on the growing field of heritage studies. Kathryn Lafrenz Samuels adopts a dual focus—looking back on the anthropological foundations for cultural heritage research while looking forward to areas of practice that reach beyond national borders: economic development, climate action, democratic practice, heritage rights, and global justice. Working around the traditional authority of the nation-state and intergovernmental treaty–based organizations such as UNESCO, these issues characterize heritage activity in transnational networks. Lafrenz Samuels argues that transnational heritage involves an important shift from a paradigm of preservation to a paradigm of development. Responding to this expanding developmental sensibility, she positions cultural heritage as a persuasive tool for transformative action, capable of mobilizing and shaping social change. She shows how anthropological approaches help support the persuasive power of heritage in the transnational sphere.

Heritage at the Interface
Race, Place, and Memory
Interpretation and Identity
Deep Currents in Wilmington, North Carolina
Edited by GLENN HOOPER
MARGARET M. MULROONEY
“Provides innovative and exciting insights into heritage identity, meaning, and belonging from a global perspective. A welcome addition to the growing heritage literature.” —Dallen J. Timothy, author of Cultural Heritage and Tourism
“A tour de force.”—John David Smith, editor of Interpreting American History: Reconstruction “With clear and compelling prose, Mulrooney dives beneath the seemingly calm waters of a ‘progressive city’ to find evidence that racialized violence and memory-making were foundational to southern settlement and development rather than a mere aberration.”—Derek H. Alderman, coauthor of Civil Rights Memorials and the Geography of Memory
“An impressive group of international authors and cases.”—A. V. Seaton, coeditor of Slavery, Contested Heritage, and Thanatourism Bringing together high-profile cultural heritage sites from around the world, this volume shows how the term heritage has been used or understood by different groups of people over time. For some, the term has meant a celebration of a particular culture and history or the promotion of accessibility, tolerance, and inclusivity. But for others it has been connected with cultural privilege, social exclusion, or exploitation via the tourism industry. These case studies are taken from America, Britain, Ireland, France, Germany, Austria, India, China, and the Caribbean. The varied approaches to heritage seen here range from the Nazi regime’s vision of German national history to the present-day push to recover Native American culture from outdated Hollywood portrayals. Featuring a tribute to Sir Gregory Ashworth, whose influential work drew attention to the contested meanings of heritage, this volume illuminates a fascinating international debate.

A revealing work of public history that shows how communities remember their pasts in different ways to fit specific narratives, Race, Place, and Memory charts the ebb and flow of racial tension in Wilmington, North Carolina, from the 1730s to the present day. Margaret Mulrooney argues that while the port city has long celebrated its white colonial revolutionary origins, it has ignored the revolutionary acts of its African American citizens who also demanded freedom—first from slavery and later from Jim Crow discrimination. Lingering beneath the surface of daily life, she shows, are collective memories of violence and alienation that were exacerbated by the Wilmington Race Riot of 1898 and racial conflicts that occurred in the city throughout the twentieth century. Critically evaluating the riot’s centennial commemoration, which she helped organize, Mulrooney makes a case for public history projects that recognize the history-making authority of all community members and prompt us to reconsider the memories we inherit. MARGARET M. MULROONEY, professor of history and associate vice provost of university programs at James Madison University, is the author of Black Powder, White Lace: The du Pont Irish and Cultural Identity in Nineteenth-Century America.

Historical Archaeology of Early Modern Colonialism in Asia-Pacific The Southwest Pacific and Oceanian Regions
Historical Archaeology of Early Modern Colonialism in Asia-Pacific The Asia-Pacific Region
Edited by MARÍA CRUZ BERROCAL and CHENG-HWA TSANG “The essential source for scholarly reassessment of the Asia-Pacific region’s diverse and significant archaeology and history.”—James P. Delgado, coauthor of The Maritime Landscape of the Isthmus of Panamá “Underpins a nuanced picture of Asia-Pacific that shows how the activities of the Chinese and Japanese in East Asia, the spread of Islam from South Asia, and the efforts of the Iberians and especially the Spanish from southern Europe ushered in a world of complex interaction and rapid and often profound change in local, regional, and wider cultural patterns.”—Ian Lilley, editor of Archaeology of Oceania: Australia and the Pacific Islands The history of Asia-Pacific since 1500 has traditionally been told with Europe as the main player ushering in a globalized, capitalist world. But these volumes help decentralize that global history, revealing that preexisting trade networks and local authorities influenced the region before and long after Europeans arrived. In the volume The Southwest Pacific and Oceanian Regions, case studies from Alofi, Vanuatu, the Marianas, Hawai‘i, Guam, and Taiwan compare the development of colonialism across different islands. Contributors discuss human settlement before the arrival of Dutch, French, British, and Spanish explorers, tracing major exchange routes that were active as early as the tenth century. They highlight rarely examined sixteenth- and seventeenthcentury encounters between indigenous populations and Europeans and draw attention to how cross-cultural interaction impacted the local peoples of Oceania. The volume The Asia-Pacific Region looks at colonialism in the Philippines, China, Japan, and Vietnam, emphasizing the robust trans-regional networks that existed before European contact. Southeast Asia had long been influenced by Buddhist, Hindu, and Muslim traders in ways that helped build the region’s ethnic and political divisions. Essays show the complexity and significance of maritime trade during European colonization by investigating galleon wrecks in Manila, Japan’s porcelain exports, and Spanish coins discovered off China’s coast. Packed with archaeological and historical evidence from both land and underwater sites, impressive in geographical scope, and featuring perspectives of scholars from many different countries and traditions, these volumes illuminate the often misunderstood nature of early colonialism in Asia-Pacific.

The Archaeology of Utopian and Intentional Communities STACY C. KOZAKAVICH “Engaging. Kozakavich offers a compelling argument about the significant place of intentional communities in the American experience and beyond.”—Lu Ann De Cunzo, coeditor of Unlocking the Past: Celebrating Historical Archaeology in North America Utopian and intentional communities have dotted the American landscape since the colonial era, yet only in recent decades have archaeologists begun analyzing the material culture left behind by these groups. The case studies in this volume use archaeological evidence to reveal how these communities upheld their societal ideals—and how some diverged from them in everyday life. Surveying settlement patterns, the built environment, and even the smallest artifacts such as tobacco pipes and buttons, Stacy Kozakavich explores groups including the Shakers, the Harmony Society, the Moravians, the Ephrata Cloister, the Oneida community, Brook Farm, Mormon towns, the Llano del Rio colony, and the Kaweah colony. She urges researchers not to dismiss these communal experiments as quaint failures but to question how the lifestyles of the people in these groups are interpreted for visitors today. She reminds us that there is inspiration to be found in the unique ways these intentional communities pursued radical social goals. STACY C.

Honoring Ancestors in Sacred Space
Investigating the Ordinary
The Archaeology of an Eighteenth-Century AfricanBahamian Cemetery
Everyday Matters in Southeast Archaeology
Edited by SARAH E. PRICE and PHILIP J. CARR
“Makes the case that the everyday should and does matter in archaeology. The content is fresh, the approaches are varied, and the case is convincing.”—Adam King, editor of Archaeology in South Carolina: Exploring the Hidden Heritage of the Palmetto State
“Turner’s unique hybrid approach makes this book a valuable resource in the study of the African diaspora.” —Rosalyn Howard, author of Black Seminoles in the Bahamas Established by a black community in the eighteenth century during British colonization of the Bahamas, the Northern Burial Ground of St. Matthew’s Parish was an important expression of the group’s African cultural identity. Analyzing the landscape and artifacts found at the site, Grace Turner shows how the community used this separate space to maintain a sense of social belonging despite the power of white planters and the colonial government. Turner points to the cemetery’s location near water, trees planted at the heads of graves, personal items left with the dead, and evidence of food offerings as African cultural features. According to Turner, these Africaninfluenced ways of memorializing the dead illustrate W. E. B. Du Bois’s idea of “double consciousness”—the experience of existing in two irreconcilable cultures at the same time. Comparing the burial ground with others in Great Britain and the American colonies, Turner demonstrates how Africans in the Atlantic diaspora did not always adopt European customs but often created a separate, parallel world for themselves. GRACE TURNER is research consultant for the Antiquities, Monuments, and Museums Corporation in Nassau, Bahamas.
Focusing on the daily concerns and routine events of people in the past, Investigating the Ordinary argues for a paradigm shift in the way southeastern archaeologists operate. Instead of dividing archaeological work by time periods or artifact types, the essays in this volume unite separate areas of research through the theme of the everyday. Ordinary activities studied here range from flint-knapping to ceremonial crafting, from subsistence to social gatherings, and from the Paleoindian period to the nineteenth century. Contributors demonstrate that attention to everyday life can help researchers avoid overemphasizing data and jargon and instead discover connections between the people of different eras. This approach will also inspire archaeologists with ways to engage the public with their work and with the deep history of the southeastern United States. SARAH E. PRICE, senior archaeologist with Wiregrass Archaeological Consulting, is coeditor of Contemporary Lithic Analysis in the Southeast: Problems, Solutions, and Interpretations. PHILIP J.

“Adds to . . . our knowledge of the peninsula warfare and gives probably the best extant account of operations in the north central region of Florida and in southern Georgia.” —Journal of Southern History
South Carolina Historical Society George C. Rogers Jr. Book Award
“The reader gets a good feeling of what campaigning in Florida meant to one used to the comforts of Charleston and Cambridge. . . . Lively, humorous, and very easy to read. In style the book is far above most descriptions of the Seminole Wars written by participants.” —Florida Historical Quarterly In 1836, 24-year-old Jacob Rhett Motte, a Harvard-educated southern gentleman with a literary flair, departed his hometown of Charleston to serve as an Army surgeon in wars against the Creek and Seminole Indians. He found himself transported from aristocratic social circles into a wild frontier. Motte recorded his experiences in a lively journal, presented in full in Journey into Wilderness. In his journal, Motte relates observations of Indian warfare from southern Georgia and eastern Alabama to Key Largo in Florida. He reports his impressions of pioneer settlements, military fortifications, towns, roads, frontier life and society, and geography. His journal also offers glimpses of the economic, political, and religious trends of the time. A fascinating story and travelogue, it is a rare firsthand account of life on the GeorgiaAlabama-Florida frontier. JACOB RHETT MOTTE (1811–1868) was a U.S. Army surgeon during the Seminole Wars of the early nineteenth century. He later worked in private practice in Charleston, South Carolina.

Race and Class in the Colonial Bahamas, 1880–1960 GAIL SAUNDERS “Saunders resoundingly affirms the relevance of island history. Scholars will appreciate the detail and insights.”—Choice “Deftly unravels the complex historical interrelationships of race, color, class, economics, and environment in the Colonial Bahamas. An invaluable study for scholars who conduct comparative research on the British Caribbean.”—Rosalyn Howard, author of Black Seminoles in the Bahamas “Saunders is to be commended for a scholarly study that prominently features the non-white majority in the Bahamas—a group which usually has been overlooked.”—Whittington B. Johnson, author of Post-Emancipation Race Relations in The Bahamas In this one-of-a-kind study of race and class in the Bahamas, Gail Saunders shows how racial tensions were not necessarily parallel to those across other British West Indian colonies but instead mirrored the inflexible color line of the United States. Focusing on the post-emancipation period from the 1880s to the 1960s, Saunders tells the story of how discrimination persisted until at last squarely challenged by the majority of Bahamians. GAIL SAUNDERS is scholar-in-residence at The College of The Bahamas and former director of the National Archives of The Bahamas. She has also served as director-general of heritage for the Bahamas Archives. She is author of several books, including Bahamian Society after Emancipation.
Who Owns Haiti? People, Power, and Sovereignty
Edited by ROBERT MAGUIRE and SCOTT FREEMAN “A timely collection of articles by some of the leading and emerging scholars and specialists on Haiti offering a wide range of critical perspectives on the question and meaning of sovereignty in Haiti.”—Alex Dupuy, author of The Prophet and Power: Jean-Bertrand Aristide, the International Community, and Haiti “Directly asks the provocative question of ownership and Haitian sovereignty within the post-earthquake moment—an unstable period in which ideas on (re)development, humanitarianism, globalization, militarism, self-determination, and security converge.” —Millery Polyné, author of From Douglass to Duvalier: U.S. African Americans, Haiti, and Pan Americanism, 1870–1964 Although Haiti established its independence in 1804, external actors such as the United States, the United Nations, and non-profits have wielded considerable influence throughout its history. Who Owns Haiti? explores the role of international actors in the country’s sovereign affairs while highlighting the ways in which Haitians continually enact their own independence on economic, political, and cultural levels. This volume argues that varying discussions of ownership are central to Haiti’s future as a sovereign state. ROBERT MAGUIRE is professor of international development studies at the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs. SCOTT FREEMAN is professorial lecturer at the School of International Service at American University.

N OW I N PA P E R BA C K Simón Bolívar Travels and Transformations of a Cultural Icon
Edited by MAUREEN G. SHANAHAN and ANA MARÍA REYES “Shows us how and why Simón Bolívar is still a major icon in Latin American culture. Cinema, politics, painting, literature, religion, and opera are all touched and marked by ‘El Libertador’ who is still very much an active force in Latin America.”—Efraín Barradas, author of Mente, Mirada, Mano “An indispensable resource for anyone interested in the myth and memory of Simón Bolívar.”—Sibylle Fischer, author of Modernity Disavowed One of Latin America’s most famous historical figures, Simón Bolívar has become a mythic symbol for many nations, empires, and revolutions and used to support wildly diverse ideas. From colonial Cuba to Nazi-occupied France to Cold War–era Slovenia, the image of “El Libertador” has variously signified loyalty, national unity, liberation, freedom, and revolt. In this volume, an array of international and interdisciplinary scholars shows the ways Bolívar has appeared over the last two centuries in painting, fiction, poetry, music, film, festival, dance, city planning, and even reliquary adoration. They illustrate how Bolívar’s body has been exalted, reimagined, or fragmented in different contexts, taking on a range of meanings to represent the politics and poetics of today’s national bodies. MAUREEN G. SHANAHAN is professor of art history at James Madison University. ANA MARÍA REYES is assistant professor of Latin American art history at Boston University.

MARTA CAMINEROSANTANGELO “This unique study is vital for its analysis of contemporary fiction on immigration and its inclusion of testimonios by those who have experienced the difficulties of living undocumented in the U.S.”—Choice “While the U.S. immigration ‘debate’ turns strident in media circles, Caminero-Santangelo intervenes with a call to read carefully the more complex stories that define us as human and humane.”—Debra A. Castillo, coeditor of Mexican Public Intellectuals Looking at the work of Junot Díaz, Cristina García, Julia Alvarez, and other Latino/a authors who are U.S. citizens, Marta CamineroSantangelo examines how writers are increasingly expressing their solidarity with undocumented immigrants. This volume also foregrounds the narratives of unauthorized immigrants themselves, showing how their stories are emerging into the public sphere. Caminero-Santangelo argues that this growing body of literature is critical to understanding not only the Latino/a immigrant experience but also alternative visions of nation and belonging. MARTA CAMINERO-SANTANGELO, professor of English at the University of Kansas, is the author of On Latinidad: U.S. Latino Literature and the Construction of Ethnicity and The Madwoman Can’t Speak: Or Why Insanity Is Not Subversive.
“This lively book has no peers. . . . Readers seeking a one-stop shop for tools with which to engage with all things Piers could hardly do better than Calabrese’s Introduction. . . . [A] magnificent book.” —Medieval Review “Provides a running summary of the poem through its three widely accepted ‘versions,’ adding observations, lightly interpretive appreciations, and speculation about the author’s reasons for various revisions. The readings are clarifying and astute, bringing out moments rarely mentioned and offering fresh treatments of famous passages; the critic’s warm voice fosters enthusiasm.”—Choice “A comprehensive and witty guide to understanding Piers Plowman in all its versions, and a manifesto for the pure intellectual pleasure to be had from reading the text as it dynamically unfolds in each of the poet’s reworkings.” —Sarah Wood, author of Conscience and the Composition of Piers Plowman “Calabrese makes Piers Plowman accessible without sacrificing complexity, guiding readers expertly through the poem’s much-debated development.”—Nicole R. Rice, author of Lay Piety and Religious Discipline in Middle English Literature MICHAEL CALABRESE, professor of English at California State University, Los Angeles, is the author of Chaucer’s Ovidian Arts of Love.

CELEBRATING THE LIFE of MICHAEL GANNON
Johnston Photography, Inc.

We are proud to be one of his publishers and to have counted him as one of our friends. Buen viaje, amigo mio.” We are honored to have published the following books by Michael Gannon.
