Safely to Earth The Men and Women Who Brought the Astronauts Home

JACK CLEMONS An Apollo and Space Shuttle diary “History well remembers the excitement of what was happening ‘up there’ during the spaceflight golden years of the Apollo moon landing and the early Space Shuttle program. In a lively, rollicking, and intimately personal memoir, Jack Clemons pulls back the curtain on what was happening ‘down here,’ with an insider’s look at what it took to bring the astronauts safely home.”—David Hitt, coauthor of Bold They Rise: The Space Shuttle Early Years, 1972–1986 “A fascinating read. Part memoir, part behind-the-scenes history, Clemons’s perspective on the development of the U.S. space program is one which has always deserved far more attention than it has traditionally received.”—W. D. Kay, author of Defining NASA: The Historical Debate over the Agency’s Mission In this one-of-a-kind memoir, Jack Clemons—a former lead engineer in support of NASA—takes readers behind the scenes and into the inner workings of the Apollo and Space Shuttle programs during their most exciting years. Discover the people, the events, and the risks involved in one of the most important parts of space missions: bringing the astronauts back home to Earth. Clemons joined Project Apollo in 1968, a young engineer inspired by science fiction and electrified by John F. Kennedy’s challenge to the nation to put a man on the moon. He describes his experiences supporting the NASA engineering team at what is now the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where he played a pivotal role in designing the reentry and landing procedures for Apollo astronauts. He went on to work on Skylab and the Space Shuttle program, eventually assuming leadership for the entire integrated software system on board the Space Shuttle. Through personal stories, Clemons introduces readers to many of the unsung heroes of the Apollo and Space Shuttle missions. Clemons worked closely with astronauts who relied on him and his fellow engineers for directions to their destination, guidance on how to get there, control of their fate during their journeys, and a safe return. He reveals problems, challenges, and near-disasters previously unknown to the public and offers candid opinions on the failures that led to the loss of 14 astronauts in the Challenger and Columbia tragedies. Highlighting the staggering responsibility and the incredible technological challenges that Clemons and his colleagues took on in the race to reach the moon and explore the mysteries of space, this book is a fascinating insider’s view of some of the greatest adventures of the twentieth century.

Gamble Rogers A Troubadour’s Life

BRUCE HOROVITZ A revered champion of Americana “It was lovely to be in a radio control room watching Gamble Rogers record music and talk segments. He always sent a smile right through the glass.”—Noah Adams, former cohost, NPR’s All Things Considered “A work of profound insight, hypnotic storytelling, and poetic style. It is the story of one artist’s commitment to his craft and passion but also a glimpse into a creative, alternative America. It offers indispensable clues into the mysteries of Rogers’s life, his art and all art, and the indefinable spirit of his country.”—David Masciotra, author of Mellencamp: American Troubadour

BRUCE HOROVITZ is an award-winning journalist and entrepreneur with extensive experience in the nonprofit and business communities of Jacksonville, Florida.

Beloved raconteur, environmentalist, and down-home philosopher, Gamble Rogers (1937–1991) ushered in a renaissance of folk music to a place and time that desperately needed it. In this book, Bruce Horovitz tells the story of how Rogers infused Florida’s rapidly commercializing landscape with a refreshing dose of homegrown authenticity and how his distinctive music and personality touched the nation. As a college student, motivated by personal advice from William Faulkner to stay true to himself, Rogers broke away from his family’s prestigious architecture business. Rogers was a skilled guitar player and storyteller who soon began performing extensively on the national folk music circuit alongside Pete Seeger, Doc Watson, and Jimmy Buffett. He discovered a special knack for public radio, appearing frequently as a guest commentator on NPR’s All Things Considered. Rogers was known across the country for his intricate fingerpicking guitar style and rapid-fire stage act. Audiences welcomed his humorous homespun tales set in the fictitious Oklawaha County, which was based on places from his own upbringing and populated by a cast of unforgettable characters. His stories evoked rural life in Florida, celebrated the state’s natural resources, and called attention to life’s many small ironies. As Florida was experiencing colossal growth embodied by the new Kennedy Space Center and Disney World, Rogers’s folksy style cheered and reassured listeners in the state who worried that their traditional livelihoods and locales were disappearing. Horovitz shows that even beyond his genius as a performing artist, Rogers was loved for his compassion, integrity, connection with people, and courage. The life of Gamble Rogers is a window into an important creative subculture that continues to flourish today as contemporary folk artists take on roles similar to the one Rogers established for himself. A modern-day troubadour, Rogers delighted in entertaining audiences with what was familiar and real—by championing the ordinary people of his home community who were closest to his heart.

Drawn to the Deep The Remarkable Underwater Explorations of Wes Skiles

JULIE HAUSERMAN A deep dive into the life of an extreme photographer “It’s easy to believe that humans evolved from the sea when you meet Wes Skiles. He was more at home underwater than above. Hold your breath as you read Julie Hauserman’s wonderful tale of a most unusual man. And remember, this tale is true.” —Bill Kurtis, announcer, Wait Wait . . . Don’t Tell Me! “In this beautifully written, funny, moving biography, Hauserman takes readers on Wes Skiles’s extraordinary adventures under the water and on terra firma as he fought to document and save the wild places he loved. This is a magical book about a man who lived every day loving his art, his family, and the blue ball of planet Earth.”—Diane Roberts, author of Dream State

Dan’s Cave looks like the entrance to the underworld. Two divers swim along a luminous blue-green passage, flashlights cutting through the water, a dark mass of stalactites suspended overhead. This is the breathtaking National Geographic cover photo taken by Wes Skiles (1958–2010), a top nature photographer who died in a diving accident before the issue was published. Drawn to the Deep celebrates the life of an extraordinary adventurer who braved extreme danger to share the hidden beauty and environmental truths of the planet with others. Skiles felt a pull to the water as a child, captivated by the cobalt springs of Florida. His passion for diving and his innovative camera techniques earned him assignments with National Geographic and Outside. He also took part in creating over a hundred films, many of which won international awards and acclaim. Skiles was a self-taught expert on Florida’s freshwater springs and an outspoken advocate for their conservation. He went head to head with scientists and government officials who dismissed his firsthand observations of water movement through the “Swiss-cheese” karst rock of the underground aquifer. But he never gave up on his quest to disprove the prevailing scientific models or to protest what they allowed— the unchecked pumping and depletion of Florida’s groundwater. Through interviews with Skiles’s friends and family, along with insights from his own journals, Julie Hauserman describes the escapades and achievements that characterized his life’s work. This book is the inspiring story of an explorer and activist who uncovered environmental abuses, advanced the field of underwater photography, and astonished the world with unprecedented views of the secret depths of the planet.

JULIE HAUSERMAN is an award-winning journalist. She is a former national commentator for NPR’s Weekend Edition and a former capital bureau reporter for the St. Petersburg Times.

ne w f rom s e a s ide p ub l is hing St. Augustine’s Ghosts The History behind the Hauntings

KAREN HARVEY Prepare for a scare in America’s oldest city

“ “ FICTION/GHOST October 104 pp. | 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 | 10 b/w photos ISBN 978-0-942084-43-6 | Original Paper $12.95

KAREN HARVEY, former arts and entertainment editor for the St. Augustine Record, is a historical interpreter and tour guide specializing in the history of St. Augustine. She is the author of several books on the area, including St. Augustine and St. Johns County: A Pictorial History and St. Augustine Enters the Twenty-First Century.

As she walked to the end of the hall where the grandmother’s bedroom was, she was startled to see the image of a religious figure wearing the habit of the Sisters of St. Joseph. The nun was fingering rosary beads as she knelt by the elderly lady. As suddenly as the image appeared, it vanished from sight. It wasn’t the mysterious smells that put Minorcan Kenny Beeson over the edge. Nor was it the sounds of booted feet stamping across the floor or the ship’s bell that rang when no one entered the shop door. No, it was when his friend died in the 1960s, and he couldn’t banish the spirits from his shop.

From doomed pirates to mischievous soldiers to spectral nuns, this collection of 38 spine-chilling tales features famous spirits from St. Augustine’s legendary paranormal past. These stories are set in the city’s iconic cemeteries, courtyards, and houses, including many sites along St. George Street, one of the oldest streets in the United States. Here you will find the exorcism of evil spirits from a man who became the city’s mayor; the head of a Seminole warrior rising like the moon above the Castillo de San Marcos; restless ghosts lurking in hallways; eerie lights inside a mausoleum; a bishop’s exploding casket; and a lighthouse keeper whose voice can still be heard in the wind. Today, visitors flock to the beachside city to enjoy spooky ghost tours and stay in haunted bed-and-breakfast inns. The stories they hear capture the rich history of the city and those who have inhabited it. St. Augustine’s ghosts have deep roots in Spanish lore dating back to the founding of the city in 1565 and in the culture of immigrants from the Mediterranean island of Minorca who were brought to Florida as indentured servants in 1768. Retelling the most mysterious encounters and sightings that have been passed down for generations among residents of St. Augustine, Karen Harvey invites you to explore the quaint brick streets of the nation’s oldest city for yourself. Who knows what you might discover?

William Morgan Evolution of an Architect

RICHARD SHIELDHOUSE The life and work of a visionary modernist “Elegantly written and based upon Shieldhouse’s extensive interviews with the architect, William Morgan is indispensable, opening new avenues of understanding why and how Morgan’s research about earth and pre-Columbian architecture enabled an extraordinary oeuvre of humanist architecture in the globalizing world, achieving the embodiment of his democratic and pioneering multicultural, environmental, and ethical agenda.”—Jean-François Lejeune, coeditor of Modern Architecture and the Mediterranean “The first book to thoroughly explore the personal story of William Morgan’s life journey and his development as an architect, offering a better understanding of the meaning and basis behind his significant and beautiful architecture.” —Guy W. Peterson, FAIA, founder and principal, Guy Peterson Office for Architecture William Morgan (1930–2016) was a bold, innovative, and highly imaginative architect known internationally for fusing ancient and modern styles and for his early championing of green design principles. This extensively illustrated book traces Morgan’s life story and the development of his singular design vision. Exploring Morgan’s early influences, Richard Shieldhouse reveals the architect’s childhood familiarity with pre-Columbian village sites and introduces college mentors who encouraged his interest in both architecture and archaeology. Later, Morgan’s drive and discipline brought him into contact with leading architects at Harvard’s Graduate School of Design, a hotbed of modernism at the time. From there, Morgan struck out on his own in Jacksonville, Florida, to shape the course of architectural history. This book tracks the evolution of Morgan’s guiding ideas—economy, efficiency, visual delight, imaginative use of everyday materials, and environmental sensitivity. His most famous designs are featured with photographs, drawings, and the architect’s own commentary. Structures such as the Dunehouses, a duplex built into the side of an oceanfront dune, represent Morgan’s commitment to earth architecture. His plans for police headquarters and other public buildings incorporate green roofs, stepped terraces, pyramid forms, and other elements inspired by aspects of prehistoric design. Morgan was unique among architects for his interest in ancient North America and for blending a modern style characterized by its rejection of history with the design language of prehistory. Highlighting how his work has impacted many areas of architecture such as urban design, this book celebrates Morgan’s continuing legacy.

BOCA RATON MUSEUM OF ART Contributions by Jennifer Hardin and Gary Monroe

The story of Florida through the eyes of artists “Shows the variety of visual experience that Florida has offered artists, both famous and unknown, since its first years of habitation but also the different media that these artists have resorted to in order to reflect their vision. This is a unique salute to Florida’s exotic, mundane, tragic, hilarious, and romantic history.”—Caroline Seebohm, author of Monumental Dreams: The Life and Sculpture of Ann Norton

ART/AMERICAN November 208 pp. | 8 x 10 | 194 color photos ISBN 978-0-936859-91-0 | Paper $34.95 Distributed on behalf of the Boca Raton Museum of Art

now in paperback The History of Florida Edited by MICHAEL GANNON Praise for the previous edition:

“A major new history.”—Miami Herald “A jewel.”—Tallahassee Democrat “The standard reference.”—Orlando Sentinel “Florida is as much a state of mind as it is a slice of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. . . . Florida could become a place of civic texture if we understand its past. Professor Gannon’s book is a good place to begin.” —St. Petersburg Times “Incorporates much of the new scholarship that has appeared over the last twenty or so years, much of the best of it exploring the lives of African-Americans, Indians, and Florida’s common white folk. . . . For those interested in seeking out the multifaceted aspects of their native or adopted state, this is the place to start.” —Tampa Tribune This is the heralded “definitive history” of Florida. No other book so fully or accurately captures the highs and lows, the grandeur and the craziness, the horrors and the glories of the past 500 years in the Land of Sunshine. Twenty-three leading historians, assembled by renowned scholar Michael Gannon, offer a wealth of perspectives and expertise to create a comprehensive, balanced view of Florida’s sweeping story. The chapters cover such diverse topics as the maritime heritage of Florida, the exploits of the state’s first developers, the astounding population boom of the twentieth century, and the environmental changes that threaten the future of Florida’s beautiful wetlands. Celebrating Florida’s role at the center of important historical movements, from the earliest colonial interactions in North America to the nation’s social and political climate today, The History of Florida is an invaluable resource on the complex past of this dynamic state.

Harold Newton


The Original Highwayman

“In his 30 years patrolling the Everglades, former wildlife officer Tom Shirley saw his share of panthers and poachers. But it’s his tales of tangling with alligators that really gets your skin crawling. . . . When it comes to the Everglades, few people share Shirley’s knowledge and perspective.”—Tampa Bay Times

GARY MONROE “An excellent, beautifully illustrated introduction to a dynamic painter that sparks the viewer’s interest in Newton and his fellow highwaymen, all of whom created against the backdrop of Jim Crow.” —Publishers Weekly

“Very well written and supremely engaging, yet informative at the same time. . . . If you are looking for a truly outstanding game warden memoir . . . you will not be disappointed in this one.”—International Game Warden Magazine “Shirley describes the wetlands and the residents’ activities with a crystal-clear memory, gently inviting his readers to enter that forgotten and mysterious world.”—Florida Book Review “Packed with memories of armed confrontations, long stakeouts, tough-talking characters and frantic pursuits.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Offers some wonderful descriptions that I’ve never before read of the richness of the wildlife before the 1950s. It’s a page turner.”—Jack E. Davis, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea “This excellent book consists of two tales: one, the firsthand action adventure story of Florida game wardens airboating across the vast Everglades in pursuit of poachers; the other, observations on the political and flood-control engineering decisions and actions that resulted, sadly, in water quality and wildlife degradation. I highly recommend Everglades Patrol on both counts.”—Patricia Caulfield, author and photographer of Everglades TOM SHIRLEY (1930–2014) served in law enforcement for the Everglades Division of the Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission for 30 years. He was an award-winning advocate for the restoration of the Everglades’ original ecosystem.

“Heralded as the finest artist of the group, Newton was admired by peers, customers, and mentors alike. His story is pieced together . . . by Newton’s loved ones and friends, then woven together by Monroe within the larger tale of the emergent outsider art collective.” —Austin Chronicle “Harold Newton’s paintings reflect a compelling, romantic, and idealized sense of place where many Americans at the time wished they could be—and still do today. Gary Monroe’s portrayal of this original Highwayman is an important study about a Florida artist who brilliantly understood his subject: the unrushed and carefree beauty of the Sunshine State.”—Irvin M. Lippman, president and executive director, The Museum of Art, Ft. Lauderdale GARY MONROE, professor of fine arts and photography at Daytona State College, is the author of numerous books, including The Highwaymen: Florida’s African-American Landscape Painters; The Highwaymen Murals: Al Black's Concrete Dreams; and Mary Ann Carroll: First Lady of the Highwaymen.

“Keys . . . has written the complete history of the hotel: its social history, its architecture and its historic preservation, often with beautiful archive photos.” —St. Augustine Record “Keys’s monumental work documenting the creation and evolution of ‘The Ponce’ and its role in the Florida tourist industry and as the home of Flagler College is impressive. This is an important addition to those interested in heritage tourism and historic preservation and their impact on this nation.”—Ted Ligibel, coauthor of Historic Preservation: An Introduction to Its History, Principles, and Practice “In this richly detailed account, Keys deftly traces the metamorphosis of Hotel Ponce de Leon from exclusive hostelry to community icon to symbol of the grandest designs of a gilded age. Here is the last word on the first resort.”—Les Standiford, author of Center of Dreams: Building a World-Class Performing Arts Complex in Miami Henry Flagler’s opulent Hotel Ponce de Leon drew worldwide praise from the day its elaborately carved doors opened in 1888. 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 assisted in the restoration, recounts the complicated construction of the hotel and the efforts to preserve it and restore it to its former glory. The restoration 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.

Grasses of Florida

Flora of Florida, Volume VI


Dicotyledons, Convolvulaceae through Paulowniaceae

“A lasting, monumental, and invaluable work. Any attempt to understand the grasses of the southeastern U.S. should start here.”—Alan R. Franck, director and curator, University of South Florida Herbarium


“Extremely valuable. Provides an updated key to Florida grasses that will better enable biologists to identify grasses in the field and the laboratory.” —Quinton Guy Anglin, wetlands specialist, Florida Department of Environmental Protection Grasses are the fourth largest family of flowering plants worldwide. In Florida, grasses occur in every habitat and are the dominant ground cover across many regions. Grasses of Florida is the first complete systematic account of the grasses that occur in the wild throughout the state. David Hall presents taxonomic descriptions of 113 genera and 460 species of the grass family, classified scientifically as Poaceae. Supplemented by over 500 illustrations, these accounts feature details on grass habitats, distribution both in-state and worldwide, frequencies of occurrence, and months of flowering. Descriptions of subfamilies and a key to the tribes of Florida grasses are also provided. Additionally, Hall explains the geographic variations within Florida and the ways the state’s soil and topography foster its great diversity of vegetation. He lists the major habitats referenced throughout the book, from pine flatwoods to coastal marshes to prairies, and the types of plants associated with each. A helpful section on morphology breaks down the structure of grass plants, highlighting their complexity and variety. The up-to-date information in this book is necessary knowledge for anyone involved in agricultural and livestock production, weed control, erosion management, aesthetic landscaping, and conservation of Florida’s native plant communities. Due to the extensive uses and tremendous diversity of grasses, this book is an essential identification guide. DAVID W. HALL is the owner and operator of an environmental consulting firm in Gainesville, Florida, and is the former director of plant identification and information services at the University of Florida. He is coauthor of Forensic Botany: A Practical Guide.

Praise for earlier volumes: “An invaluable source. . . . 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 “This series will surely be the standard reference for the unique and threatened flora of the Sunshine State.”—Plant Science Bulletin “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 This sixth volume of the Flora of Florida collection continues the definitive and comprehensive identification manual to the Sunshine State’s 4,000 kinds of native and non-native ferns and fern allies, nonflowering seed plants, and flowering seed plants. Volume VI contains the taxonomic treatments of 19 families of Florida’s dicotyledons. Florida has the third most diverse vascular plant flora of any state in the United States, and the Flora of Florida volumes include all indigenous and naturalized taxa currently known to occur within its borders. With keys to family, genus, and species, and with genera and species within each family arranged alphabetically for easy reference, these volumes are the standard reference for botanists, researchers, consultants, and students alike. RICHARD P. WUNDERLIN is professor emeritus of biology at the University of South Florida. BRUCE F. HANSEN is curator emeritus of biology at the University of South Florida Herbarium. Together, Wunderlin and Hansen have coauthored Flora of Florida, Volumes I–V, and Guide to the Vascular Plants of Florida, third edition. ALAN R.

Amphibians and Reptiles of Florida KENNETH L. KRYSKO, KEVIN M. ENGE, and PAUL E. MOLER “This authoritative treatise on the amphibians and reptiles of Florida will become the go-to volume for every professional herpetologist.”—Robert Powell, coauthor of Peterson Field Guide to Reptiles and Amphibians of Eastern and Central North America, Fourth Edition “An exceptional work—easily one of the best treatments of a state herpetofauna ever prepared. All of the species accounts are thorough and comprehensive. This will be a gold standard for others preparing regional treatments.” —Dirk Stevenson, director, Longleaf Savannas Initiative Florida is home to a more diverse variety of amphibians and reptiles than any other state due to its wide array of ecosystems—from pine forests to the subtropical Everglades to the tropical Keys—and its large number of established nonnative species. This volume is a comprehensive account of the 219 species known to exist in the state. Chapters are organized into families and species of salamanders, frogs, turtles, crocodilians, lizards, and snakes, including both native and nonindigenous species. A final chapter addresses nonnative species not proven to be established in the state. Each species is presented with one or more color photographs, an up-to-date distribution map, and detailed information about its appearance, current taxonomy, geographic distribution and habitat, reproduction and development, diet, behavior, and conservation status. Many of the photographs highlight the differences between sexes, between juveniles and adults, and between larval stages. This volume also includes a thorough discussion of the environmental impacts that are threatening the herpetofauna of the state. As parts of Florida are experiencing degradation of natural habitats at record rates, particularly large urban areas such as the southeastern Atlantic Coast, species that cannot adapt will disappear. This volume will be a touchstone for future efforts to study and protect the extraordinary biodiversity of Florida’s native amphibians and reptiles.

Edited by KENT SPRIGGS Choice Outstanding Academic Title “Fascinating. . . . The kind of book you can open anywhere, maybe thumb back or forth a few pages, and settle into a good story.” —USA Today “Equal parts stunning, eyeopening, overwhelming, and, ultimately, very necessary to read and comprehend. Essential.”—Choice “An important reminder of the critical role attorneys played in the civil rights movement.”—Post and Courier “We owe much to the pioneering work of this generation of civil rights lawyers who translated their moral and political beliefs into representation of those most in need of legal services. . . . Spriggs has given voice to those who helped secure some semblance of equal justice in that critical historical period.”—Civil Rights Litigation Handbook “One of the great, largely unknown stories of American history. This volume is a wonderfully evocative demonstration of something often discounted—how important law and lawyers were, and remain, in realizing the promise of full equality for all citizens.”—Kenneth W. Mack, author of Representing the Race While bus boycotts, sit-ins, and other acts of civil disobedience were the engine of the civil rights movement, the law was a primary context. Here, in their own voices, twenty-six lawyers reveal the abuses they endured and the barriers they broke as they fought for civil rights. These eyewitness accounts provide unique windows into some of the most dramatic moments in civil rights history. KENT SPRIGGS, author of the two-volume Representing Plaintiffs in Title VII Actions, has been a civil rights lawyer for fifty-two years. He practices in Tallahassee, Florida, where he was a city commissioner and mayor.

Adventures in Archaeology The Wreck of the Orca II and Other Explorations

P.J. CAPELOTTI Discover a little-known world of archaeology “Transcendent. A brilliant, thought-provoking exploration of the role of archaeology in understanding the recent past, this book takes the reader on a journey from the frozen north, the depths of the sea, and the vastness of the Pacific to the ends of space.”—James P. Delgado, coauthor of The Maritime Landscape of the Isthmus of Panamá “Capelotti does for archaeology what Neil deGrasse Tyson has done for astrophysics. His clear, articulate narrative engages the reader and will inspire both current and future archaeologists. A deeply moving, personal, and professional collection.” —Beth Laura O’Leary, coauthor of The Final Mission: Preserving NASA’s Apollo Sites Wrecked aircraft and abandoned airfields, old highway billboards and derelict boats, movie props, deserted mining operations. In this book, archaeologist P.J. Capelotti explores places and things that people don’t typically think of as archaeological sites and artifacts, introducing readers to the most extreme fieldwork taking place today. Capelotti shows that even seemingly ordinary objects from the recent past hold secrets about the cultural history of humans. He investigates the site where a stunt copy of the Orca, the fishing boat used in the movie Jaws, was stripped to pieces by fans—a revelation of the ways humans relate to popular culture. He takes readers to abandoned base camps near the North Pole that are now used as destinations for Arctic tourism. Retelling the story of Thor Heyerdahl’s research expedition across the Pacific Ocean on a balsa log raft, Capelotti shows how this episode of experimental archaeology revealed cultural connections between continents. And he doesn’t stop at the limits of the planet. He discusses debris floating through outer space and equipment left behind on the surface of the moon, highlighting current efforts to preserve artifacts that exist beyond the Earth’s atmosphere. These discarded materials, says Capelotti, help archaeologists piece together the sweeping story of human cultural expansion and exploitation. He explains how the unusual sites of shorelines, sea, air, and space represent the farthest reaches of human civilization. His enthusiasm will inspire readers to set out on their own to investigate the secret meanings of treasures hiding in plain sight.

An Archaeology of Structural Violence Life in a Twentieth-Century Coal Town

Colonialism, Community, and Heritage in Native New England



“Brilliantly underscores how the manifestations of modern alienation and social inequality must be at the center of any truly anthropological analysis in the twenty-first century. This fantastic volume makes us comprehend the immense complexities of violent modernity and will compel us to critically interrogate our past, our present, and our future.” —Daniel O. Sayers, author of A Desolate Place for a Defiant People

“A compelling and timely challenge to archaeologists and all heritage professionals whose work articulates with Native community partners. Analyzing the narratives of four contemporary heritage sites in New England, Hart critically identifies deeply entrenched structures of whiteness, state power, and racism that continue to hinder Native sovereignty.”—Katherine Howlett Hayes, coeditor of Rethinking Colonialism: Comparative Archaeological Approaches

Drawing on material evidence from daily life in a coal-mining town, this book offers an up-close view of the political economy of the United States over the course of the twentieth century. This community’s story illustrates the great ironies of this era, showing how modernist progress and plenty were inseparable from the destructive cycles of capitalism. At the heart of this book is one of the bloodiest yet least-known acts of labor violence in American history, the 1897 Lattimer Massacre, in which 19 striking immigrant mineworkers were killed and 40 more were injured. Michael Roller looks beneath this moment of outright violence at the everyday material and spatial conditions that supported it, pointing to the growth of shanty enclaves on the periphery of the town that reveal the reliance of coal companies on immigrant surplus labor. Roller then documents the changing landscape of the region after the event as the anthracite coal industry declined, as well as community redevelopment efforts in the late twentieth century. This rare sustained geographical focus and long historical view illuminates the rise of soft forms of power and violence over workers, citizens, and consumers between the late 1800s and the present day. Roller expertly blends archaeology, labor history, ethnography, and critical social theory to demonstrate how the archaeology of the recent past can uncover the deep foundations of today’s social troubles. MICHAEL P. ROLLER is a research affiliate of the Anthropology Department of the University of Maryland. Currently, he is employed as an archaeologist for the National Park Service.

“An innovative analysis. Hart’s masterful consideration of Aquinnah, Pocumtuck, Mashantucket, and Plimoth heritage landscapes reveals the extent to which collaborative approaches can challenge public perceptions of Native American persistence in New England today.” —Mary Ann Levine, coeditor of Archaeology and Community Service Learning Exploring museums and cultural centers in New England that hold important meanings for Native American communities today, this illuminating book offers a much-needed critique of the collaborative work being done to preserve and promote the cultural heritage of the region. Siobhan Hart examines the narratives told by and about Native American communities at heritage sites of the Aquinnah Wampanoag tribe on Martha’s Vineyard, the Pocumtuck in Deerfield, Massachusetts, the Mashantucket Pequot reservation in Connecticut, and Plimoth Plantation in Massachusetts. She looks at interpretive signage, exhibits, events, and visitor engagement strategies that try to reverse the common idea that Native peoples no longer exist in these landscapes and asks whether the messages of these sites really do help break apart the power structures of colonialism. She finds that in many cases whiteness is still presented to visitors as the cultural norm and that the burden of decolonizing often falls on indigenous curators, interpreters, and collaborators. Hart’s analysis spotlights the persistence of racialization and structural inequalities in these landscapes, as well as the negative effects of these problems on current Native American sovereignty. The broader goal of decolonization, she argues, remains unrealized. This book presents startling evidence of the ways even well-intentioned multiperspective approaches to heritage presentations can undermine the social justice they seek. SIOBHAN M. HART is associate professor of anthropology at Skidmore College. A volume in the series Cultural Heritage Studies, edited by Paul A. Shackel

History and Approaches to Heritage Studies Edited by PHYLLIS MAUCH MESSENGER and SUSAN J. BENDER “An important collection at the intersection of theory, practice, and teaching. The authors are deeply reflective on how archaeologists can employ critical pedagogies to promote civic engagement and justice through heritage work.”—Siobhan M. Hart, coeditor of Decolonizing Indigenous Histories: Exploring Prehistoric/Colonial Transitions in Archaeology

Pedagogy and Practice in Heritage Studies Edited by SUSAN J. BENDER and PHYLLIS MAUCH MESSENGER “A valuable resource for those looking to make their teaching of the archaeological past more relevant to the present. The case studies demonstrate the work of people who are very invested in the practice of teaching—who strive to provide effective pedagogies, who wish to make archaeology applicable to the lives of their students, and who are very frank about the challenges and pitfalls of their approaches.”—Jon D. Daehnke, author of Chinook Resilience: Heritage and Cultural Revitalization on the Lower Columbia River As more and more people are recognizing the need for accurately representing the story of the United States in public narratives, especially those told at museums and historic landmarks, heritage studies is emerging as an important program of study in universities across the country. These two collections are timely and valuable resources on the theory and practice of heritage education and its relationship to the discipline of archaeology. History and Approaches to Heritage Studies explores the historical development of cultural heritage theory and practice, as well as current issues in the field. This volume brings together archaeologists who are deeply engaged with a range of stakeholders in heritage management and training. Chapters contain useful reflections on working with descendant communities, local residents, community partners, and students in a variety of settings. With a focus on pedagogy throughout, topics include the importance of critical thinking skills, how technology has transformed education, gender issues in archaeology, minorities in heritage careers, NAGPRA and ethics education, archaeology field schools, and e-learning. Pedagogy and Practice in Heritage Studies presents teaching strategies for helping students think critically about the meanings of the past today. In these case studies, experienced teachers discuss ways to integrate heritage studies values into archaeology curricula, illustrating how the fields enrich each other. They argue that encouraging empathy can lead to awareness of the continuity between past and present, reflection on contemporary cultural norms, and engagement with issues of social and climate justice. These practical examples model ways to introduce diverse perspectives on history in pre-college, undergraduate, and graduate contexts. Emphasizing the importance of heritage studies principles and active learning in archaeological education, these handbooks provide tools to equip archaeologists and heritage professionals with collaborative, community-based, and activist approaches to the past.

The Archaeology of Villages in Eastern North America

The Cumberland River Archaic of Middle Tennessee



“A remarkable and coordinated array of case studies that documents the variable pathways leading to the appearance of village life in eastern North America. Rather than stepping stones in an evolutionary course inexorably leading to bigger and more complex settlements, villages are shown to be precarious experiments, a tension-filled stage for improvising new forms of social life.”—Warren R. DeBoer, author of Traces Behind the Esmeraldas Shore: Prehistory of the SantiagoCayapas Region, Ecuador

“The Middle Cumberland River Valley has a rich archaeological record that has gone largely unnoticed by the archaeological community. This volume corrects that by presenting information, new and old, on the Archaic shellbearing sites of the region.” —Jason O’Donoughue, author of Water from Stone

“Will inspire deeper consideration of the processes that bring about the formation of villages.”—Phillip J. Carr, coeditor of Investigating the Ordinary: Everyday Matters in Southeast Archaeology The emergence of village societies out of hunter-gatherer groups profoundly transformed social relations in every part of the world where such communities formed. Drawing on the latest archaeological and historical evidence, this volume explores the development of villages in eastern North America from the Late Archaic period to the eighteenth century. Sites analyzed here include the Kolomoki village in Georgia, Mississippian communities in Tennessee, palisaded villages in the Appalachian Highlands of Virginia, and Iroquoian settlements in New York and Ontario. Contributors use rich data sets and contemporary social theory to describe what these villages looked like, what their rules and cultural norms were, what it meant to be a villager, what cosmological beliefs and ritual systems were held at these sites, and how villages connected with each other in regional networks. They focus on how power dynamics played out at the local level and among interacting communities. Highlighting the similarities and differences in the histories of village formation in the region, these essays trace the processes of negotiation, cooperation, and competition that arose as part of village life and changed societies. This volume shows how studying these village communities helps archaeologists better understand the forces behind human cultural change.

For thousands of years, the inhabitants of the Middle Cumberland River Valley harvested shellfish for food and raw materials then deposited the remains in dense concentrations along the river. Very little research has been published on the Archaic period shell mounds in this region. This volume presents the results of recent surveys, excavations, and laboratory work as well as fresh examinations of past investigations that have been difficult for scholars to access. In these essays, contributors describe an emergency riverbank survey of shell-bearing sites that were discovered, reopened, or damaged in the aftermath of recent flooding. Their studies of these sites feature stratigraphic analysis, radiocarbon dating, zooarchaeological data, and other interpretive methods. Other essays in the volume provide the first widely accessible summary of previous work on sites that have long been known. Contributors also address larger topics such as GIS analysis of settlement patterns, research biases, and current debates about the purpose of shell mounds. This volume provides an enormous amount of valuable data from the abundant material record of a fascinating people, place, and time. It is a landmark synthesis that will improve our understanding of the individual communities and broader cultures that created shell mounds across the southeastern United States. TANYA M.

Bioarchaeology of Massacres Pre-Columbian Mesoamerica Bioarchaeology and Forensic An Interdisciplinary Approach

Anthropology Approaches



“This exciting volume brings together new bioanthropological research from the Maya area and the Valley of Mexico concerning ancient migration, mortuary practices, and identity. A critical and innovative resource for all students of the ancient Americas.” —Geoffrey E. Braswell, editor of The Maya and Their Central American Neighbors This volume offers a novel interdisciplinary view of the migration, mobility, ethnicity, and social identities of pre-Columbian Mesoamerican peoples. In studies that combine bioarchaeology, ethnohistory, isotope data, and dental morphology, contributors demonstrate the challenges and rewards of such integrative work when applied to large regional questions of population history. The essays in this volume are the results of fieldwork in Honduras, Belize, and a variety of sites in Mexico. One chapter uses dental health data and burial rituals to investigate the social status of sacrificial victims during the Late Classic period. Another analyzes skeletal remains from multiple research perspectives to explore the immigrant makeup of the multiethnic city of Copan. Contributors also use strontium and oxygen isotope data from tooth enamel and dental morphological traits to test hypotheses about migration, and they incorporate ethnohistorical sources in an examination of ancient Maya understandings of belonging and otherness. Revealing how complementary fields of study can together create a better understanding of the complex forces that impact population movements, this volume is an inspiring picture of the exciting collaborative work currently under way among researchers in the region.

“A book of great scope that constitutes a new foundation for the study of massacres.”—R. Brian Ferguson, editor of The State, Identity and Violence This volume integrates data from researchers in bioarchaeology and forensic anthropology to explain when and why group-targeted violence occurs. Massacres have plagued both ancient and modern societies, and by analyzing skeletal remains from these events within their broader cultural and historical contexts this volume opens up important new understandings of the underlying social processes that continue to lead to these tragedies. In case studies that include Crow Creek in South Dakota, Khmer Rouge–era Cambodia, the Peruvian Andes, and northern Uganda, contributors demonstrate that massacres are a process—a nonrandom pattern of events that precede the acts of violence and continue long afterward. They also show how massacres have varying aims and are driven by culture-specific forces and logic, ranging from small events to cases of genocide. Notably, the volume expands widely held definitions of massacres to include structural violence, featuring the radical argument that the large-scale death of undocumented migrants in Arizona’s Sonoran Desert should be viewed as an extended massacre. This volume is the first to focus exclusively on massacres as a unique form of violence. Its interdisciplinary approach illuminates similarities in human behavior across time and space, provides methods for identifying killings as massacres, and helps today’s societies learn from patterns of the past.

The Archaeology of American Childhood and Adolescence

Archaeology of Identity and Dissonance



“An elegantly written and comprehensive discussion of children in the United States from the first settlers through the present. Baxter effectively makes the case that historical analyses need to include discussions of childhood and that archaeological evidence makes distinct, important contributions to the narrative.”—Kathryn A. Kamp, editor of Children in the Prehistoric Puebloan Southwest “Shows how the study of childhood, when refracted through the lens of material culture studies, can not only shed light on cultural constructions of it in the past but also give context to how childhood is perceived in the present.”—Stacey Lynn Camp, author of The Archaeology of Citizenship This is the first book to focus on archaeological evidence from the recent past related to children, childhood, and adolescence. Jane Baxter, a foremost authority on the archaeology of historic American childhood, synthesizes the growing variety of ways researchers have been approaching the topic, guiding readers through an abundance of current data on the experiences of children in American history. Baxter begins with a historical overview of the changing views on childrearing and definitions of childhood from colonial times to the present. Next, she examines archaeological studies of children from household environments, including farms, plantations, urban settings, industrial communities, and military sites. She looks at studies from institutions where children have resided, such as orphanages, poor houses, asylums, Japanese internment camps, and Indian boarding schools. Additionally, Baxter includes research on children buried in cemeteries, showing what their skeletal remains and gravemarkers can reveal about the importance of children in past communities. Baxter concludes by featuring studies of present-day childhood, pointing out how today’s physical environments and material objects reflect ideas about children that come from a long historical legacy. She argues that the history of America can be understood through the stories of the nation’s children—and that with the unique insights provided by archaeological evidence, these stories can be more fully told.

Contexts for a Brave New World

“An excellent collection of case studies exploring the complex links between the material world and various aspects of individual and collective identity, with research emphases ranging from small household objects to entire landscapes and from Roman Britain to contemporary Puerto Rico.”—Douglas E. Ross, author of An Archaeology of Asian Transnationalism Gathering a diverse set of case studies that draw on popular themes in contemporary historical archaeology and current trends in archaeological method and theory, this volume demonstrates how humans adapt to new and challenging environments by building and adjusting their identities. It shows the many ways identity formation can be seen in the material world that humans create. The essays in this volume focus on situations across the globe where humans have experienced dissonance in the form of colonization, migration, conflict, marginalization, and other cultural encounters. Featuring a wide time span that reaches to the ancient past, examples include Roman soldiers in Britain, Vikings in Iceland and the Orkney Islands, sex workers in French colonial Algeria, Irish immigrants to the United States, an African American community in nineteenth-century New York City, and the Taíno people of contemporary Puerto Rico. These studies draw on a variety of data, from excavated artifacts to landscape and architecture to archival materials. In their analyses, contributors explore multiple aspects of identity such as class, gender, race, and ethnicity, showing how these factors intersect for many of the individuals and groups studied. The questions of identity formation explored in this volume are critical to understanding the world today as humans continue to grapple with the legacies of colonialism and the realities of globalized and divided societies.

An Archaeology of Abundance

Ceramics of Ancient America

Reevaluating the Marginality of California’s Islands


Edited by KRISTINA M. GILL, MIKAEL FAUVELLE, and JON M. ERLANDSON “Overturns old assumptions about the ‘marginality’ of islands, forcing a reassessment of the significance of islands in global human history. A tour de force.”—Patrick Vinton Kirch, author of Unearthing the Polynesian Past

Multidisciplinary Approaches

“In its broad topical and geographical scope, this volume demonstrates the many ways scholars can productively study ancient ceramics and the diversity of questions their studies can address.” —Christopher A. Pool, coeditor of The Oxford Handbook of Mesoamerican Archaeology “Expansive in scope, including cases spanning millennia and traversing North, Central, and South America, this interdisciplinary collection of essays demonstrates that ceramic objects, all too often marginalized as minor arts or the fodder of stratigraphic seriation, reward close and deep study.”—Bryan R. Just, author of Dancing into Dreams: Maya Vase Painting of the Ik’ Kingdom

The Alta and Baja California islands changed dramatically after Spanish colonists arrived. Native populations were decimated, and their lives were altered. Overgrazing, overfishing, and the introduction of nonnative species depleted natural resources severely. Modern scientists have assumed the islands were similarly sparse before European contact, but this volume reassesses this longheld belief, analyzing new lines of evidence showing that the California Islands were rich in resources important to human populations. Contributors examine data from Paleocoastal to historic times that suggest the islands were optimal habitats that provided food, fresh water, minerals, and fuel for the people living there. Botanical remains from these sites, together with the modern resurgence of plant communities after the removal of livestock, challenge theories formed during the historical ranching era. Geoarchaeological surveys, trade exchange routes, underwater forests of edible seaweeds, and reconstructions of population densities also support the case for abundance on the islands. Reinforcing the idea that these islands were not marginal environments in the early human history of the region, these discoveries hold major implications for reassessing the ancient history of islands around the world that have undergone similar ecological transformations.

This is the first volume to bring together archaeology, anthropology, and art history in the analysis of pre-Columbian pottery. While previous research on ceramic artifacts has been divided by these three disciplines, this volume shows how integrating these approaches provides new understandings of many different aspects of Ancient American societies. Contributors from a variety of backgrounds in these fields explore what ceramics can reveal about ancient social dynamics, trade, ritual, politics, innovation, iconography, and regional styles. Essays identify supernatural and humanistic beliefs through formal analysis of Lower Mississippi Valley “Great Serpent” effigy vessels and Ecuadorian depictions of the human figure. They discuss the cultural identity conveyed by imagery such as Andean head motifs, and they analyze symmetry in designs from locations including the American Southwest. Chapters also take diachronic approaches—methods that track change over time—to ceramics from Mexico’s Tarascan State and the Valley of Oaxaca, as well as from Maya and Toltec societies. This volume provides a much-needed multidisciplinary synthesis of current scholarship on Ancient American ceramics. It is a model of how different research perspectives can together illuminate the relationship between these material artifacts and their broader human culture.

El Techo de la Ballena

Labor Politics in Latin America

Retro-Modernity in Venezuela

Democracy and Worker Organization in the Neoliberal Era

MARÍA C. GAZTAMBIDE “A sensitive, highly informed study of an immensely important but little understood artistic group in mid-twentieth-century Venezuela.”—Edward J. Sullivan, author of Making the Americas Modern: Hemispheric Art, 1910–1960 The work of the 1960s Caracasbased art collective El Techo de la Ballena (The Roof of the Whale) was called “subversive” and “art terrorism” and seen as a threat to Venezuela’s national image as an emerging industrial power. This volume details the historical and social contexts that shaped the collective, exploring how its anti-art aesthetic highlighted the shortcomings of the country’s newfound oil wealth and transition to democracy. Every element used by these radicalized artists in their avant-garde exhibitions—from Informalist canvases to torn book pages and kitsch objects to cattle carcasses and scatological content—issued a critique of Venezuela’s petroleum-driven capitalism and the profound inequality left in its wake. Embracing chaos, the artists contradicted the country’s politically sanctioned view of modernity, which championed constant progress in the visual arts and favored geometric abstraction and kinetic art. El Techo’s was a backward—a retrograde— modernity, argues María Gaztambide, discussing how its artists turned against the norm by incorporating anachronistic postures, primeval symbols, colonial Latin American print culture, and “guerilla” art tactics. Artists in this group tested limits to provoke what they saw as a numbed local public through shocking displays of criticism and frustration. Today, as Venezuela undergoes another dramatic series of sociopolitical changes, El Techo de la Ballena serves as a reminder of the power of art in resisting the status quo and effecting change in society. MARÍA C. GAZTAMBIDE is associate director of the International Center for the Arts of the Americas at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

PAUL W. POSNER, VIVIANA PATRONI, and JEAN FRANÇOIS MAYER “Deals in a systematic way with a very important topic, the world of work in Latin America and prospects for reform there. Scholars, citizens, and activists should pay heed.”—José A. Alemán, author of Labor Relations in New Democracies: East Asia, Latin America, and Europe In recent decades, Latin American countries have sought to modernize their labor market institutions to comply with the demands of globalization. This book evaluates the impact of such neoliberal reforms on labor movements and workers’ rights in the region through comparative analyses of labor politics in Chile, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, and Venezuela. Using these five key cases, the authors assess the capacity of workers and working-class organizations to advance their demands and bring about a more just distribution of economic gains in an era in which capital has reasserted its power on a global scale. In particular, their findings challenge the purported benefits of labor market flexibility—the freedom of employers to adjust their workforces as needed—which has been touted as a way to reduce income inequality and unemployment. Showing how flexibilization and other processes have undermined organized labor in all of these countries, these in-depth case studies reveal the current internal fragmentation of unions and their inability to promote counterreforms or to increase collective bargaining. This assessment concludes that even with substantial variation among countries in how reforms have been implemented, most workers in the region have experienced increasing precarity, informal employment, and weaker labor movements. This book provides vital insights into whether these movements have the potential to regain influence and represent working people’s interests effectively in the future. PAUL W.

Fugitive Slaves and Spaces James Monroe of Freedom in North America A Republican Champion Edited by DAMIAN ALAN PARGAS


“This superb collection of essays highlights the continent-wide diversity of ‘spaces of freedom’ sought out by fugitive slaves in North America. It brilliantly evokes the motives and strategies, risks and experiences of thousands who ventured routes of refuge beyond the ‘drinking gourd’ that led to the North.” —Sydney Nathans, author of A Mind to Stay: White Plantation, Black Homeland

“A well-crafted exposition of James Monroe’s perception of the new United States and his ideas on its place in the family of nations. A valuable contribution to our understanding of the hopes and aspirations of the founding generation for their newly created country.”—Daniel Preston, editor of The Papers of James Monroe

This volume introduces a new way to study the experiences of runaway slaves by defining different “spaces of freedom” that fugitive slaves inhabited. It also provides a groundbreaking continental view of fugitive slave migration, moving beyond the usual regional or national approaches to explore locations in Canada, the U.S. South, Mexico, and the Caribbean. Contributors use three main categories of freedom to compare and contrast various aspects of slave escape in the period between the revolutionary era and the U.S. Civil War. They investigate sites of formal freedom, regions in which slavery was abolished and refugees were legally free; sites of semiformal freedom, areas in which abolition laws conflicted with federal fugitive slave laws; and sites of informal freedom, places within the slaveholding South where runaways formed maroon communities or attempted to blend in with free black populations. The essays discuss slaves’ motivations for choosing these destinations, the social networks that supported their plans, what it was like to settle in their new societies, and how slave flight impacted broader debates about slavery. This volume redraws the map of escape and emancipation during this period, emphasizing the importance of place in defining the meaning and extent of freedom.

“A welcome addition to the literature on the foreign policy of the early republic.”—Robert W. Smith, author of Amid a Warring World: American Foreign Relations, 1775–1815 Despite serving his country for 50 years and being among the most qualified men to hold the office of president, James Monroe is an oft-forgotten Founding Father. In this book, Brook Poston reveals how Monroe attempted to craft a legacy for himself as a champion of American republicanism. Monroe’s dedication to the vision of a modern republic built on liberty began when he joined the American Revolution. His devotion to the cause further developed under his apprenticeship to Thomas Jefferson. These experiences spurred him to support the virtues of republicanism during the French Revolution, where he tried to create an alliance between the United States and the French republic despite ire from the U.S. Federalist party. As he climbed the political ranks, Monroe’s achievements began to add up: he played a significant role in the Louisiana Purchase, helped lead the fight against Great Britain in the War of 1812, oversaw the acquisition of Florida from Spain, and created the Monroe Doctrine to protect the Americas from the influence of European monarchies. Focusing exclusively on America’s fifth president and his complete commitment to republicanism, this book offers new interpretations of James Monroe as a patriot who dedicated his life to what he believed was perhaps the most important cause in human history.

American Literary History and the Turn toward Modernity

Modernist Communities across Cultures and Media



“A game-changer in American literary studies. Challenges time-worn literary periodization, especially narrow definitions of modernism.”—Susan Tomlinson, coeditor of Legacy: A Journal of American Women Writers The years between 1880 and 1930 are usually seen as a time in which American writers replaced values and traditions of the Victorian era with wholly new works of modernist literature, and the turn of the century is typically used as a dividing line between the old and the new. Challenging this periodization, this volume argues that this entire time span should instead be studied as a coherent and complex literary field. The essays in this volume show that these were years of experimentation, negotiation of boundaries, and hybridity—resulting in a true literature of transition. Contributors offer new readings of authors including Jack London, Edith Wharton, and Theodore Dreiser in light of their ties to both the nineteenth-century past and the emerging modernity of the twentieth century. Emphasizing the diversity of the literature of this time, contributors also examine poetry written by and for Native American students in a Westernized boarding school, the changing attitudes of authors toward marriage, turn-of-the-century feminism, dime novels, anthologies edited by late-nineteenth-century female literary historians, and fiction of the Harlem Renaissance. Calling for readers to look both forward and backward at the cultural contexts of these works and to be mindful of the elastic categories of this era, this volume demonstrates the plurality and the tensions characteristic of American literature during the century’s long turn. MELANIE V. DAWSON, associate professor of English at the College of William and Mary, is the author of several books, including Emotional Reinventions: Realist-Era Representations Beyond Sympathy. MEREDITH L. GOLDSMITH, professor of English and associate dean at Ursinus College, is coeditor of Edith Wharton and Cosmopolitanism and Middlebrow Moderns: Popular American Women Writers of the 1920s.

“Insightful perspectives on a diverse selection of modernist-era writers, thinkers, and artists, providing scholars and teachers of literary modernism with a fresh, vital contribution to the evolving field of modernist studies.”—Emily M. Hinnov, coeditor of Communal Modernisms: Teaching Twentieth-Century Literature and Culture in the Twenty-First-Century Classroom “Engaging. The editors have assembled a fine international roster of scholars, and the essays are well researched and well argued. The topic of modernist community is timely and of wide interest to the field of modernist studies.”—Janet Lyon, author of Manifestoes: Provocations of the Modern Marked by a rejection of traditional affiliations such as nation, family, and religion, modernism is often thought to to privilege the individual over the community. The contributors to this volume question this assumption, uncovering the communal impulses of the modernist period across genres, cultures, and media. Contributors show how modernist artists and intellectuals reconfigured relations between the individual and the collective. They examine Dada art practices that involve games and play; shared reactions to the post–World War I rhetoric of Woodrow Wilson; the reception of James Joyce’s Ulysses in Harlem Renaissance circles; the publishing platform of the Bengali literary review Parichay; popular radio shows and news broadcasts; and the universal aspects of film viewing. They also explore radical reimaginings of community as seen in the collective cohabiting envisioned by Virginia Woolf, the utopian experiment of Black Mountain College, and the communal autobiographies of Gertrude Stein. The essays demonstrate that these pluralist ecosystems based on participation were open to paradox, dissent, and multiple perspectives. Through a transnational and transmedial lens, this volume argues that the modernist period was a breakthrough in a rethinking of community that continues in the postmodern era.

Modernist Soundscapes

Modernism and Food Studies

Auditory Technology and the Novel

Politics, Aesthetics, and the Avant-Garde



“Deftly unites insights from sound studies with in-depth literary analysis to examine the ways in which emerging auditory technologies influenced the narrative strategies of modernist novelists.”—Julia C. Obert, author of Postcolonial Overtures: The Politics of Sound in Contemporary Northern Irish Poetry “A trenchant study of the diversity of sonic experience both discussed within and provoked by modernist literature.”—Sam Halliday, author of Sonic Modernity: Representing Sound in Literature, Culture and the Arts At the turn of the twentieth century, new technologies such as the phonograph, telephone, and radio changed how sound was transmitted and perceived. In Modernist Soundscapes, Angela Frattarola analyzes the influence of “the age of noise” on writers of the time, showing how modernist novelists use sound to bridge the distance between characters and to connect with the reader on a more intimate level than before. Frattarola tunes into representations of voices, noise, and music in works by Dorothy Richardson, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, Jean Rhys, and Samuel Beckett. She argues that the common use of headphones, which piped sounds from afar into a listener’s headspace, inspired modernists to record the interior monologues of their characters in a stream-of-consciousness style. Woolf’s onomatopoeia stems from a desire to render the sounds of the world without mediation, similar to how some contemporaries hoped that recording technology would eliminate the need for musicians. Frattarola also explains how Beckett’s linguistic repetition mirrors the mechanical reproduction of the tape recorder. These writers challenge the traditional emphasis on vision in art and philosophy, characterizing the eye as distancing and analytical and the act of listening as immediate and unifying. Contending that the experimentation typically associated with modernist writing is partly due to this new attentiveness to sound, this book introduces a fresh perspective on texts that set the course of contemporary literature.

“This delicious collection traverses the globe—potatoes in Ireland, eggs in New Zealand, mangoes in Bengal—and explores the sensuous qualities of artistic modernism in its many forms. This collection makes a bold and clear case for the theoretical and historical importance of food studies to modernism.”—Catherine Keyser, author of Playing Smart: New York Women Writers and Modern Magazine Culture “A strong addition to the practice of cultural materialism within modernist studies.”—Bonnie Roos, coeditor of Behind the Masks of Modernism: Global and Transnational Perspectives Transnational in scope, this much-needed volume explores how modernist writers and artists address and critique dramatic changes to food systems that took place in the early twentieth century. In this period, small farms were being replaced with industrial agriculture, political upheavals exacerbated food scarcity in many countries, and globalization opened up new modes of distributing culinary commodities. Looking at a unique variety of texts by authors from Ireland, Italy, France, the United States, India, the former Soviet Union, and New Zealand, contributors draw attention to modernist representations of food. Among other topics, they consider Oscar Wilde’s aestheticization of food, Katherine Mansfield’s use of eggs as a feminist symbol, Langston Hughes’s frequent use of chocolate as a metaphor for blackness, Futurist cuisine and avant-garde cookbooks, and the effects of national famines in the work of James Joyce, Viktor Shklovsky, and Tarashankar Bandyopadhyay. The diverse topics and methodologies assembled here illustrate how food studies can enrich research in the literary and visual arts. A milestone volume, this collection introduces possibilities for understanding the connection between modernist aesthetics and the emerging food cultures of a globalizing world.

“Informative. . . . Southerners generally supported the war effort, bought war bonds, and gathered scrap metal. They experienced some hints of the social changes to come. Pleasants . . . skillfully explains how these experiences and others made North Carolina in 1945 different from the state it was in 1941.”—Choice “A powerful book; a tale of heroism, volunteerism, and sacrifice.”—Gary R.

REGINALD K. ELLIS Southern Conference on African American Studies Inc. C. Calvin Smith Book Award

“Resurrects from the annals of history James Edward Shepard, one of the most understudied yet important black college administrators and race leaders of the twentieth century. Ellis recounts how Shepard successfully navigated the halls of power within both black and white circles to fund his institution and in doing so, Ellis challenges the notion that strategies of racial uplift can be neatly delineated as accommodationist or radical.”—Crystal R. Sanders, author of A Chance for Change “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. 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.

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 “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 Resistance Reimagined highlights unconventional modes of black women’s activism within a society that has spoken so much of freedom but has granted it so selectively. Looking closely at nineteenth- and twentieth-century writings by African American women that reimagine antebellum America, Regis Fox introduces types of black activism that differ from common associations with militancy and maleness. In doing so, she confronts expectations about what African American literature can and should be. Fox analyzes Harriet Wilson’s Our Nig, Elizabeth Keckly’s Behind the Scenes, Anna Julia Cooper’s A Voice From the South, and Sherley Anne Williams’s Dessa Rose. The thinkers highlighted by Fox have been dismissed as elitist, accommodationist, or complicit—yet Fox reveals that in reality, 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.

This collection reveals Sexton as a unique artist and human being.”—Choice “Readers of Sexton’s poetry have been waiting more than twenty years for a collection of essays like this.”—Dawn M. Skorczewski, author of An Accident of Hope: The Therapy Tapes of Anne Sexton “An important collection of new critical views. Draws from a range of critics, as well as poets, to assess why Sexton’s work remains viable, forceful, and beloved.”—Linda Wagner-Martin, author of A History of American Literature: 1950 to the Present One of America’s most influential women writers, Anne Sexton has long been overshadowed by fellow confessional poets Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell and is seldom featured in literary criticism. This volume reassesses Sexton and her poetry for the first time in two decades and offers directions for future Sexton scholarship. Mapping Sexton’s influence on twenty-first-century cultural contexts, these essays emphasize her continuing vitality.

now in paperback Gender and the Rhetoric of Modernity in Spanish America, 1850–1910

Convent Life in Colonial Mexico

The Politics of Language in Puerto Rico

A Tale of Two Communities




“Looks at how men and women writers in late-nineteenth and early-twentiethcentury Latin America understood the role of women in the advancement of their countries as they entered modernity. . . . Reveals how gender became the eye of a longstanding social storm.”—Choice

“A valuable and logical step in the progression of critical studies on convent writing. . . . We have moved from seeing women writers as working at the margins to seeing them as writing subjects.” —Latin American Research Review

“Whether considering public or private spaces, domesticity, work, or education, this book provides sophisticated readings of a broad range of narratives that illustrate the tensions brought about in discussions of gender and its relation to modernity in Spanish America.”—Fernando Unzueta, author of La imaginación histórica y el romance nacional en Hispanoamérica “A key resource for the study of modernity in Latin American literature and its related fields: women and gender studies, sexuality studies, postcolonial studies, and beyond.”—Nancy LaGreca, author of Rewriting Womanhood This ambitious volume shows how nineteenthcentury Spanish American writers used the discourses of modernity to envision the place of women in the modern, utopian nation. Looking at texts ranging from novels and essays to newspaper articles and advertisements, and with special attention to public and private space, domesticity, education, technology, and work, Skinner identifies gender as a central concern at every level of society. LEE SKINNER is professor of Spanish at Claremont McKenna College. She is the author of History Lessons: Refiguring the NineteenthCentury Historical Novel in Spanish America.

“Consider[s] nuns not as merely secular or religious writers, but through the lens of interdisciplinary study, as multifaceted historical agents. . . . The importance of the kind of innovative theoretical work undertaken by this text . . . cannot be over-emphasized, and will offer a both provocative and illuminating read to scholars in a broad range of disciplines.” —Journal of International Women’s Studies “Kirk reconstructs aspects of the lives of colonial nuns through close-up readings of select manuscripts and, additionally, of published primary sources. . . . A lively and provocative addition to the literature on colonial Mexico that offers new insights into the dynamics of religious community.”—Bulletin of Latin American Research “A thought-provoking contribution to our understanding of community-building among colonial Latin American women.”—A Contracorriente

“A welcome addition to the literature on American politics . . . because it broadens the debate concerning what Puerto Rico is actually all about.”—American Political Science Review “A systematic analysis of the factors that explain the Partido Popular Democrático (PPD) government’s decision of making Spanish the only official language of the island in 1991. . . . Shows how the autonomist governor Rafael Hernández Colón wanted to send a political message to Congress and to federal policymakers about the cultural and linguistic unfeasibility of statehood for Puerto Rico.” —Centro Journal “A [book] rich in detail and analysis, which anyone wanting to understand the language debate in Puerto Rico will find essential.” —Arlene Davila, Syracuse University AMÍLCAR ANTONIO BARRETO is associate professor of cultures, societies, and global studies at Northeastern University. He is the author of several books, including Nationalism and Its Logical Foundations, and is coeditor of American Identity in the Age of Obama.

The Evolving Science of Fritz Müller

A Social History of Black Loyalists in the Bahamas

Caribbean Federation in the Black Diaspora




“This fine biography of Fritz Müller (1821–97) explains how he helped Darwin shape his ideas on mimicry. . . . Ideal for students of natural history, historians of science, and other scholars.”—Choice “A treasure trove of information for anyone interested in the development of the theory of natural selection.”—Isis “Situates Müller’s research at the cutting edge of nineteenth-century natural science. Müller emerges here . . . as an essential figure in an active and collaborative scientific network.” —Quarterly Review of Biology “The depth and scope of research on this singular figure is impressive.”—H-Net “Offers an unfiltered view into science of the mid-nineteenth century, when evolutionary theory had its origins. West makes this world tangible, with all of its pleasures and challenges. . . . This book is a wonderful addition to the library of any evolutionary biologist or natural historian and is a pleasant foray into the lives of nineteenth-century naturalists.” —American Entomologist “The thoroughly researched, well-illustrated, and definitive account of an important period, place, and scientist in the history of evolutionary biology.”—Edward O. Wilson, author of The Meaning of Human Existence DAVID A. WEST (1933–2015) was associate professor emeritus of biological sciences at Virginia Tech and the author of Fritz Müller: A Naturalist in Brazil.

“Sheds new light on the black loyalist experience in a region of the Atlantic where plantation slavery was not the dominant labor system. . . . Curry shows how black loyalists in the Bahamas built on revolutionary traditions and fundamentally transformed Bahamian society in the early nineteenth century.”—Choice “Curry has broadened our understanding of black loyalist history, both by accenting the specificities of the Bahamian experience and by confirming their similarities with other locations in this fascinating diaspora.”—William and Mary Quarterly “Brilliant. Puts the Bahamas on the map with Jamaica, Antigua, Nova Scotia, and Sierra Leone as sites where black refugees who fled the American victory in the War of Independence added mightily to the economy and religious life in their new homes.”—John Saillant, author of Black Puritan, Black Republican: The Life and Thought of Lemuel Haynes, 1753–1833 “A rich social history that recognizes both the unique nature of Bahamian society and the ways in which it fit into an Atlantic context.” —Carla Gardina Pestana, author of Protestant Empire: Religion and the Making of the British Atlantic World

“Opens new perspectives on the building of a Caribbean federation in the twentieth century. . . . Connects the struggles for self-determination and self-government in the West Indies with black diaspora politics from the late nineteenth century to the onset of the independences of the Anglophone Caribbean in the 1960s.”—American Historical Review “Duke articulates the perspectives manifested in popular culture and provides an in-depth analysis of diasporan roles and reactions . . . in this profound, well-researched, and lucid scholarly work.”—Choice “An original, insightful, and well-researched book.”—Journal of Caribbean History “Complicat[es] our understanding of the relationships between West Indian nation building and the black diaspora’s broader global context, particularly regarding various nationalisms, regionalism, and race. . . . An important contribution to black diaspora studies as well as histories of the British Empire, Caribbean, and the black freedom struggle in the United States.”—Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology

A must read.”—American Anthropologist “A tour de force of social history, narrative ethnography and ritual analysis.”—Anthropological Quarterly “A very close look into diverging expectations and needs separating the Haitian transnational community and the ethos of extended families who compete for resources, power and moral integrity.”—Ethnos “A work of great scholarship, compassion, and insight. . . . [T]he skill with which the author incorporates multi-sited ethnography, issues of transnational community, the development of a specific form of Vodou, political economy, and history in a single, rich narrative should serve as an example to other ethnographers.” —Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Anthropology “Sets a new standard for Haitian ethnography.” —Journal of Latin American Geography KAREN E.

Thatched Roofs and Open Sides The Architecture of Chickees and Their Changing Role in Seminole Society

CARRIE DILLEY Southeast Chapter of the Society of Architectural Historians Award of Excellence for a Book

“Adds an important chapter to a rather sparse, albeit growing, literature on Indigenous design and architecture. . . . Rebukes the view that tribes in the Americas only had teepees and igloos.”—Journal of Native American and Indigenous Studies “Presents a compelling examination of the chickee that is as much ethnohistory as architectural history.”—H-Net “Never before has there been a systematic study of chickees. . . . An informative and detailed exploration of chickees at the intersection of architectural history and cultural analysis.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Takes us on a journey to the heart and soul of Seminole life—the chickee. Dilley ably 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, and ending with a glimpse into the future.”—Ryan Wheeler, director, Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology

Informative interviews reflect the editors’ aim to include a diversity of Seminole perspectives and add immeasurably to this case study of a tribal nation that continues to balance persistence and change.”—Choice “Offers a unique perspective on tribal approaches to managing historic preservation and addresses the multiplicity of issues common to all tribal historic preservation groups.”—Joe Watkins, director, Tribal Relations and American Cultures Program, National Park Service “A concise, detailed account regarding the enormity of the task THPOs face in successfully navigating the two worlds of federal historic preservation laws and statutes and tribal cultural beliefs, knowledge, and traditions.” —James Quinn, Tribal Historic Preservation Officer, Mohegan Tribe of Connecticut

An Archaeological History of the Algonquian Chesapeake

“An important addition to the growing field of landscape archaeology, providing new perspectives on a people who have been previously understood only through the eyes of colonial interlopers.” —American Archaeology “Gallivan’s approach is multidisciplinary and he is careful to integrate Native perspectives and participation with present-day issues of site preservation, loss, and protection. . . . A valuable contribution.”—American Antiquity “An archaeologically grounded, yet highly accessible, analysis of the deep history of the Chesapeake region. . . . Ties the precolonial past to the colonial past, the Native world to the Euro-American world, and by so doing . . . moves us well beyond the metanarrative of John Smith, Pocahontas, and the Jamestown settlers.”—William and Mary Quarterly “[Gallivan] supplements archaeological work with a skillful analysis of diverse documentary, visual, and material sources.”—Journal of Southern History “A must read.”—Stephen Potter, author of Commoners, Tribute, and Chiefs MARTIN D. GALLIVAN, professor of anthropology at William and Mary, is the author of James River Chiefdoms: The Rise of Social Inequality in the Chesapeake. A volume in the series Society and Ecology in Island and Coastal Archaeology, edited by Victor D. Thompson

“Highlights sites, themes, and time periods that have often been overlooked by historical archaeologists, and looks particularly at how people maintained space within the oppressive structures of slavery and the relative freedom of post-slavery life in the Caribbean.”—American Antiquity “This book marks an important move towards a better understanding of the complexities of Caribbean historical archaeology.”—Cambridge Archaeological Journal “Expose[s] the existence of a parallel local economy alongside the plantation export economy . . . [and] shows how historical archaeologists must deal with incomplete records and inadequate documentation.” —Choice “Encapsulates the lived experiences of enslaved Africans through a postcolonial and landscape perspective.”—Anthropology Book Forum LYNSEY A.

“Much has been written about the successes of ancient Maya kings. . . . Much less studied have been their failures. . . . This volume focuses on the losses of kings’ legitimacy to rule in the southern Maya lowlands. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice “Us[es] solid empirical data to address meaning, motivation and political action in the past.” —Antiquity “A comprehensive look at kingship from a variety of site specific, ninth-century case examples. It is a worthy addition to the literature and will doubtless influence our thinking on the politics of the Terminal Classic.” —Anthropos “A valuable contribution to our knowledge of the events surrounding the collapse of the ancient Maya in the Late and Terminal Classic periods, particularly the death of kings and the failure of the institution of divine kingship.” —Lisa LeCount, coeditor of Classic Maya Provincial Politics: Xunantunich and Its Hinterlands GYLES IANNONE, professor of anthropology at Trent University, is the editor of The Great Maya Droughts in Cultural Context.
