a director’s farewell
Dear Reader, This marks my last catalog as the director of the exceptional University Press of Florida (UPF). I have had the honor and privilege of working with some of the finest professionals in our industry. I am particularly grateful for the unwavering support of the peerless professors who have served on our editorial boards during the 23 years I have been at UPF, and especially for the support of the University of Florida provost and senior vice president for academic affairs, Dr. Joseph Glover. Their confidence in my abilities as a director to see the press through some very troubled waters is one the most rewarding experiences of this journey. And, oh, what a long strange trip it’s been . . . In 2009 UPF, along with the rest of the world, stood at the edge of an abyss, the game changer for everybody and every company. What made the recession/depression of 2009 so different from all the previous ones was that this one was coupled with the lightspeed manipulation of our culture and environment made possible by the Internet. Everyone turned the corner in 2009 but the “Age of Information” kept right on truckin’, getting bigger and bolder. The year 2009 marked the beginning of our transmutation as our environment had fundamentally changed. Higher education budgets, as well as changes in the buying habits of scholars and students, forced us into a new “private/public” model. UPF faced a rapid decline of sales, as the erosion of funding to libraries coupled with rapidly changing delivery methods forced us to move beyond the usual to the unusual, from single-tasking to multitasking, from selling to a few outlets to selling to multiple outlets in an ever-increasing variety of formats. This past decade has been our own transmutation, for no longer does our worth depend entirely on sales nor does our value diminish if our sales do. Our value is much more than that bottom line—it is our unique skill set, our outreach, and our commitment to excellence that keeps us aligned with our institution’s missions. Collaborating is what university presses do; adaptation is our strength and resilience. Our marketing manager has allowed me one final Star Trek quote: “Change is the essential process of all existence.” Live long and prosper, UPF. Sincerely,
Meredith Morris-Babb Director, University Press of Florida
Sallie Ann Robinson’s Kitchen Food and Family Lore from the Lowcountry
SALLIE ANN ROBINSON Down-home cooking for the hungry soul “This authentic collection of recipes is a hymn of praise not only to Gullah food but also to the ancient traditions of the West African culture still lingering in the Lowcountry of the American South.”—Cassandra King Conroy, author of The Same Sweet Girls “Deliciously filled with mouthwatering recipes and heartfelt stories, this book is a cultural testament to genuine home-style Lowcountry cooking.”—Virginia Willis, James Beard Award–winning cookbook author and chef “Chock-full of old-fashioned wisdom and peppered with the unique and beautiful Gullah dialect, Sallie Ann Robinson’s Kitchen will feed your hungry soul with authentic Gullah cuisine.”—Katie Moseman, author of Fixin’ to Eat: Southern Cooking for the Southern at Heart “Robinson shines new light on ancestral wisdom from her elders and introduces the kind of imaginative cooking that Gullah families have cherished for generations.”—Toni Tipton-Martin, author of The Jemima Code: Two Centuries of African American Cookbooks “Robinson talks lovingly of growing up in a place where people didn’t have much but shared what they had. She describes meals made from what her family could raise, kill, grow, or catch on land and sea. Life was hard, but life was rich and beautiful on Daufuskie Island.”—Martha Nesbit, author of Savannah Celebrations: Simple Southern Party Menus In her third cookbook, Sallie Ann Robinson brings readers to the dinner table in South Carolina’s Lowcountry. Born and raised on the small, remote island of Daufuskie, Robinson shares the food and foodways from her Gullah upbringing. The Gullah of Daufuskie and the surrounding Sea Islands—descendants of enslaved West Africans and mostly isolated from the mainland—depended on hunting, fishing, and gardening. Robinson’s recipes are passed down through generations of living off the land, and her lively stories capture “the island ways of doin.” She enriches regional staples with her own flair in recipes like Belly-Fillin Carolina Country Boil, Island Pineapple and Coconut Chicken, Gullah Chicken Gumbo, ’Fuskie Shrimp and Blue Crab Burger, and Sautéed Cabbage with Sweet Onion. As memories of this traditional way of life fade, Sallie Ann Robinson’s Kitchen helps preserve the food, culture, and community of Daufuskie and the Sea Islands.

The Insistence of Harm FERNANDO VALVERDE Translated by ALLEN JOSEPHS and LAURA JULIET WOOD An award-winning collection from an acclaimed contemporary poet “Valverde, one of the most accomplished young poets writing in Spanish today, grapples with the sorrow of aging, death, and lost love in language that both makes us feel the immediacy of pain and its transcendence through poetry.” —Anthony Geist, translator of Luis Hernández’s The School of Solitude: Collected Poems “The translations are faithful but also artful, attending to both literal meaning and the multilayered figurative language that gives Valverde’s work its rich texture and depth. His landscapes correspond to inner states of mind, his earthly journeys to inward ones.”—Carolyn Forché, coeditor of Poetry of Witness: The Tradition in English, 1500–2001

FERNANDO VALVERDE is visiting distinguished professor in the Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese at the University of Virginia. He is the author of several books of poetry, including Eyes of the Pelican.
Born in Granada, Spain, in 1980, Fernando Valverde is widely considered one of the top young poets writing in Spanish today. Valverde is a leading figure in a movement of contemporary poets known as the Poetry of Uncertainty, and he has received some of the most significant awards for poetry in Spanish. This bilingual edition of his book The Insistence of Harm introduces English-language readers to some of his latest, most exciting work. The Insistence of Harm is a series of poignant lyric poems that takes readers from India to the Balkans to Spain and to Latin America, exploring the nature of “harm” in its various guises—war, disease, heartbreak, suicide. The poems grapple with both the reality of loss and the distance that language imposes on it. The English translations by Allen Josephs and Laura Juliet Wood effectively capture both tone and content while attending to subtle nuances of the original Spanish, bringing a new and important voice to students of Spanish and poetry readers alike. ALLEN JOSEPHS, University Research Professor in the Department of English at the University of West Florida, is cotranslator of Fernando Valverde’s Selected Poems. LAURA JULIET WOOD, poet and translator based in Pensacola, Florida, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, is the author of All Hands Lost. A volume in the series Contemporary Spanish-Language Poetry in Translation, edited by Allen Josephs, funded by the University of West Florida

The Mariel Boatlift A Cuban-American Journey
VICTOR ANDRES TRIAY Stories from one of history’s most dramatic immigration crises “With the rigor of an accomplished historian and the grace of a superb storyteller, Victor Andres Triay uses his voice and the voices of a score of protagonists to brilliantly capture the facts and the emotions of the 1980 Mariel Boatlift and its impact. A must-read for those interested in the past and future of U.S.-Cuba relations.”—José Azel, author of Mañana in Cuba “A timely reminder of the human costs associated with states using migrations to advance political aims.”—Gaston A. Fernandez, coauthor of Democracy as a Way of Life in America: A History Set against the sweeping backdrop of one of the most dramatic refugee crises of the twentieth century, The Mariel Boatlift presents the stories of Cuban immigrants to the United States who overcame frightening circumstances to build new lives for themselves and flourish in their adopted country. Award-winning historian Victor Triay portrays the repressive climate in Cuba as the democratic promises of Fidel Castro’s 1959 revolution gave way to a communist dictatorship under which the people of the island became virtually cut off from the outside world. He illustrates how escalating internal tensions during the regime’s second decade in power culminated in an exodus of over 125,000 Cuban refugees across the Straits of Florida during the spring and summer of 1980. Alongside a fast-paced narrative offering a brief history of the Mariel Boatlift, Triay presents testimonies from former Mariel refugees who recall their lives in Cuba before the boatlift and how they longed to reunite with family members who lived in exile in the United States. Their captivating stories detail the physical and psychological abuse they endured in Cuba at the hands of pro-government mobs and the mistreatment they experienced at processing centers there before reaching the port of Mariel. They recall treacherous journeys to Key West aboard vessels that were overcrowded to life-threatening levels, as well as their experiences settling in Miami and beyond. Called the scum—escoria—of society by the Cuban government, a false portrayal accepted and spread by some in the American media, Mariel refugees faced extraordinary challenges upon entering U.S. society. Yet, despite the obstacles placed before them, the overwhelming majority of these immigrants successfully transitioned to their new lives as Americans and many have emerged as leading professionals, scholars, writers, artists, and businesspeople. This book shares their hardships and successes while profoundly illustrating the human impact of international power struggles.

The Modern Republican Party in Florida PETER DUNBAR and MIKE HARIDOPOLOS The history of the Republican Party’s rise to power “I couldn’t put this book down. It describes the ascension of the Republican Party from the minority to the majority, allowing individuals to evaluate how that occurred on the Florida landscape. Anyone who loves politics, history, or Florida should read this book.”—Sandra B. Mortham, former Florida secretary of state “An indispensable guide to the modern political history of Florida. Informative, insightful, and incisive. Richly sourced by authors who were on the scene.” —Lester Abberger, chairman, LeRoy Collins Institute, Florida State University Despite Florida’s current reputation as a swing state, there was a time when its Republicans were the underdogs against a Democratic powerhouse. This book tells the story of how the Republican Party of Florida became the influential force it is today. Republicans briefly came to power in Florida after the Civil War but were called “carpetbaggers” and “scalawags” by residents who resented pro-Union leadership. They were so unpopular that they didn’t earn official party status in the state until 1928. Peter Dunbar and Mike Haridopolos show how, due largely to a population boom in the state and a schism in the Democratic Party, Republicans slowly started to see their ranks swell. This book chronicles the paths that led to a Republican majority in both the state Senate and House in the second half of the twentieth century and highlights successful campaigns of Florida Republicans for national positions. It explores the platforms and impact of Republican governors from Claude Kirk to Ron DeSantis. It also looks at how a robust two-party system opened up political opportunities for women and minorities and how Republicans affected pressing issues such as public education, environmental preservation, and criminal justice. As the Sunshine State enters its third decade under GOP control and partisan tensions continue to mount across the country, this book provides a timely history of the modern political era in Florida and a careful analysis of challenges the Republican Party faces in a state situated at the epicenter of the nation’s politics.

Roaring Reptiles, Bountiful Citrus, and Neon Pies An Unofficial Guide to Florida’s Official Symbols
MARK LANE The wild and wacky stories behind the symbols that define us “This old Florida boy has been waiting for such a book for a coon’s age. I learned a lot about the origins of our state’s symbols and laughed a lot while reading. It’s a great combination, like butter and grits.”—Jeff Klinkenberg, author of Son of Real Florida: Stories from My Life “An iconoclast, Lane enjoys slaying sacred cows and bloviating politicians who take seriously the mission of designating official state pies, birds, and flowers. Bravo! Floridians need to read the clear and intelligent prose of Mark Lane.” —Gary R. Mormino, author of Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams: A Social History of Modern Florida With an eye for the illogical and a flair for the irreverent, journalist Mark Lane aims his sharp wit at one of the most intriguing duties of the Florida legislature—signing state symbols into law. In Roaring Reptiles, Bountiful Citrus, and Neon Pies, he spotlights nineteen things that have been proposed and/or appointed to officially define Florida. Lane guides readers through the often-comic historical events that led to the selection of Florida’s official fruit, tree, gem, bird, song, and other items ranging from the well known to the obscure, packing in personal stories and laugh-out-loud moments along the way. Did you know the state slogan was almost “the alligator state”? Or that a mailbox in the shape of the state marine mammal can tell you a lot about a person? Readers will also discover that the bill proposing the state soil caused a crisis in the Senate and that the state play—written in the peculiar genre of symphonic outdoor drama—puts a heroic spin on the grisly European conquest of St. Augustine. “Full of the kind of unnecessary commentary that might cause trouble,” as Lane describes it, this book is also written with affection toward the wide diversity of lives and experiences that make up the state he calls home. He shows that deciding the things that represent us at any given moment is far trickier than it appears. Especially in Florida, a state aptly symbolized by “a lot of contradictions baked into a Key lime pie.”

The Allure of Immortality
The Consolidation Story, from Civil Rights to the Jaguars
An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet
JAMES B. CROOKS
“A well-crafted case study of urban rebirth in the South. . . . Balanced and thoughtful.” —Choice
“Relates the headshaking tale of how [Cyrus] Teed converted two hundred seekers into celibate Koreshans and led them from Chicago to a Southwest Florida promised land, based on a religionscience . . . and the irresistible idea that the entire universe was contained in a hollow earth.” —Foreword Reviews
“A brilliant narrative that explains how the city has grown from a small cow town on the narrowest portion of the St. Johns River to a major metropolis in the sun belt.” —H-Net “Crooks, the historian-in-residence during the administration of Jacksonville mayor Tommy Hazouri (1987–1991), was in an excellent position to observe community development at close range. His experiences and insights are quite evident in this solidly researched study.”—Journal of American History “A reminder of just how backward a city Jacksonville was in many ways in the 1950s and 1960s.”—Florida Times-Union “Particularly useful for its examination of how blacks viewed their prospects in this ‘Bold New City’ and how civil rights activists pressed their claims within the new consolidated government. . . . A primer for those concerned about southern growth in the twenty-first century.” —Journal of Southern History “In 1967, voters in Jacksonville and the suburban areas of Duval County supported a successful city-county consolidation that transformed Jacksonville into Florida’s largest city. James Crooks’s detailed study of Jacksonville before and after the consolidation provides a wealth of information and insight about the community.”—Florida Historical Quarterly JAMES B. CROOKS, emeritus professor of history at the University of North Florida, is the author of Jacksonville After the Fire, 1901–1919: A New South City and Politics and Progress: The Rise of Urban Progressivism in Baltimore. A volume in the Florida History and Culture Series, edited by Raymond Arsenault and Gary R. Mormino
“What Lyn Millner does in her outstanding new book . . . is meticulously winnow truth from myth as she fleshes out the characters who were the Koreshans. . . . The result is an account that’s as exhaustive as it is interesting. Millner approaches her subject with an appealingly contemporary voice and sensibilities.” —Fort Myers News-Press “Millner’s writing is historical journalism at its finest. . . . The Allure of Immortality interweaves the stories of Teed, his followers, the press, turn of the century society, and the harsh and beautiful landscape of Southwest Florida.”—Florida Book Review “The story is fantastic enough to captivate anyone.”—Gulfshore Life “Brilliantly written and strangely moving. Millner has resurrected the lost history of a cult devoted to a utopian vision as pure as it was outlandish.”—Steve Almond, author of God Bless America: Stories At the turn of the twentieth century, the charismatic and controversial Cyrus Teed proclaimed himself a prophet and led his people into a mosquito-infested scrubland, where they set to building a communal utopia inside what they believed was a hollow earth—with humans living on the inside crust and the entire universe contained within. In The Allure of Immortality, Lyn Millner weaves the many bizarre strands of Teed’s life and those of his followers into a riveting story of angels, conmen, angry husbands, yellow journalism, and ultimately, hope. LYN MILLNER is professor of journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University. She has written and produced stories for NPR’s Morning Edition, the New York Times, USA Today, the Miami Herald, Oxford American, and others.

By approaching Walt Disney World as a multilayered text with many meanings, Knight appreciates its complexity as a popular culture artifact worthy of admiration and scrutiny.”—Journal of American Culture “[An] accessible overview of how Disney imagines its ‘magic’ to work.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “A roller coaster of a book that will leave you marveling. With intelligence and a sense of fun, Knight reframes Disney World as a pilgrimage center, a Garden of Eden, and a World’s Fair. A great read and a real contribution to Disney literature and the Disney World experience.”—Harriet F. Senie, author of The “Tilted Arc” Controversy: Dangerous Precedent? “Approaching Disney and his ‘magic lands’ from the vantage point of scholar and enthusiast, Knight interweaves astute observations about globalized cultural production and the built environment while her crisp writing makes for a lively and engaging read.” —Sarah Schrank, author of Art and the City “Knight’s insights on Disney as an intrepid planner, inventor, innovator, and iconoclast—and his fascination and deployment of technology that bridges private desire with the public realm—has pressing relevance for contemporary culture.”—Patricia Phillips, Moore College of Art & Design
Bravura! Lucia Chase and the American Ballet Theatre
ALEX C. EWING “Bravura addresses a dearth of knowledgeable tomes about the ABT, and is filled with the kind of tidbits fanatics will revel in. Ewing writes with both the studiousness of a scholar and the emotional attachment of a son, which, when you think about it, are also components that go into making good ballet.”—The New Yorker “This compelling book, part dance history, part family chronicle, fills an aching gap on the dance bookshelf.”—Dance Magazine “An enjoyable book about ABT’s founding patron and artistic director. An undeniably good yarn. With ideal fluidity, Ewing weaves his mother’s personal and professional stories into a thoughtful narrative devoid of any sense of compromised perspective. He has a real talent for personality description and portrays all the famous people in the book—even the less admirable ones—as multidimensional, sympathetic figures.”—Backstage “ABT’s robust and rambunctious ups and downs are chronicled in rich detail, but the complicated details of wheeling and dealing never overwhelm the human stories in what Ewing calls ‘possibly the most complex and adventurous start-up ever to be attempted in the annals of dance.’”—Winston-Salem Journal
In this fascinating analysis, Cher Krause Knight explores Walt Disney’s inspiration and vision for Disney World in central Florida, exploring the reasons why the resort has emerged as such a prominent sociocultural force. Expertly weaving themes of pilgrimage, paradise, fantasy, and urbanism, she delves into the unexpected nuances and contradictions of this elaborately conceived playland of the imagination.
The accomplishments of Lucia Chase (1897–1986) have had a huge influence on American ballet and dance culture. The founding patron of the American Ballet Theatre, Chase began as a principal dancer and soon became director of the company (along with Oliver Smith), a position she held for an unprecedented thirty-five years. Written by her son Alex Ewing, Bravura! celebrates the fascinating life of one of the brightest jewels in American ballet history.
CHER KRAUSE KNIGHT, professor of art history at Emerson College, is the author of Public Art: Theory, Practice and Populism. She is also coeditor of A Companion to Public Art and Museums and Public Art?
ALEX C. EWING (1931–2017), Lucia Chase’s son, was chancellor of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts and former general director of the Joffrey Ballet.

La Meri and Her Life in Dance Performing the World
NANCY LEE CHALFA RUYTER An early innovator of world dance “As a revolutionary performing artist whose interests and achievements were truly groundbreaking, La Meri built a life and career deeply deserving of our attention. Ruyter brings a specialist’s knowledge and sensitivity to a subject that demands closer study.”—Norton Owen, director of preservation, Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival “A detailed chronicle of the touring, performing, choreographing, teaching, writing, and day-to-day living of a singularly influential twentieth-century dance artist. Ruyter’s careful attention to the available archival and published sources on and of La Meri makes this biography an invaluable resource.”—Sally Ann Ness, author of Choreographies of Landscape: Signs of Performance in Yosemite National Park

NANCY LEE CHALFA RUYTER, former professor of dance at the University of California, Irvine, studied with La Meri in the 1950s. She is the author of Reformers and Visionaries: The Americanization of the Art of Dance and The Cultivation of Body and Mind in Nineteenth-Century American Delsartism.
“This full-scale, highly detailed study of the dancer La Meri fills an important gap in the study of ethnic dance. Ruyter demonstrates that La Meri was an important figure in the development of serious dance performance and scholarship.” —Anthony Shay, author of Ethno Identity Dance for Sex, Fun and Profit: Staging Popular Dances Around the World This intriguing biography details the life and work of world dance pioneer La Meri (1899–1988). An American dancer, choreographer, teacher, and writer, La Meri was ahead of her time in championing cross-cultural dance performances and education, yet she is almost totally forgotten today. In La Meri and Her Life in Dance, Nancy Ruyter introduces readers to a visionary artist who played a pivotal role in dance history. Born in Texas as Russell Meriwether Hughes, La Meri toured throughout Latin America, Europe, Asia, the Pacific, and the United States in the 1920s and ’30s, immersing herself in different dance traditions at a time when few American dancers explored styles outside their own. She learned about Indian dance culture from the celebrated Uday Shankar, studied belly dancing with the Moroccan sultan’s top dancer, and took flamenco lessons in Spain. La Meri spread awareness and enjoyment of the world’s myriad forms of expression before it was common for performing artists from these countries to tour internationally. Ruyter describes how La Meri founded the Ethnologic Dance Center in New York City, choreographed innovative works based on various dance cultures for Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival and other venues, and wrote widely on the styles and techniques of international dance genres. This long-overdue book illustrates that the popularity of world dance today owes much to the trailblazing efforts of La Meri.

Wild Capital Nature’s Economic and Ecological Wealth
BARBARA K. JONES “In Wild Capital, Jones offers us a compelling and easily understood way to change how we value wildlife and wild lands. I encourage hunters, developers, and conservationists to study this book and learn how to make decisions that can lead to a much-needed world full of wild nature.” —Rick Lamplugh, author of Deep into Yellowstone: A Year’s Immersion in Grandeur and Controversy In Wild Capital, Barbara Jones demonstrates that looking at nature through the lens of the marketplace is a surprisingly effective approach to protecting the environment. Showing that policymakers and developers rarely associate wild places with monetary values, Jones argues that nature can and should be viewed as a capital asset like any other in order for environmental preservation to be a competitive alternative to development. Jones describes how the ecosystem services model, a tool that connects human well-being with the services nature provides, can play a critical role in assigning species and their habitats measurable values. She uses five highly recognizable animal species—moose, manatees, sharks, wolves, and bald eagles—as examples to show how highly valued charismatic fauna can serve as symbolic representations of entire ecosystems at risk. Through an emphasis on branding and ecotourism, Jones advocates for channeling the social and economic power of these and other faces of nature to inspire greater environmental awareness and stewardship. Contending that many people don’t realize how fiscally pragmatic environmental initiatives can be, Jones is optimistic that by recognizing the opportunity costs of habitat destruction and diminished biodiversity, we will make better choices regarding conservation and development. In doing so, we can more readily move toward coexistence with nature and a sustainable future. BARBARA K. JONES is professor of anthropology at Brookdale Community College.
new edition The Politics of Language in Puerto Rico Revisited
AMÍLCAR ANTONIO BARRETO “A significant contribution to the continuing contentious debate on the status of Puerto Rico. . . . In addition to archival resources, the author includes interviews with prominent Puerto Rican political leaders in and out of government to provide a historical and contemporary basis for understanding the language issue on the island.”—Choice “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.”—Centro Journal In 1991, the Puerto Rican government abolished bilingualism, claiming that “Spanish only” was necessary to protect the culture from North American influences. A few years later bilingualism was restored and English was promoted in public schools. This revised edition of The Politics of Language in Puerto Rico is updated with an emphasis on the dual arenas where the language controversy played out—Puerto Rico and the United States Congress— and includes new data on the connections between language and conflicting notions of American identity. This book shows that officials in both San Juan and Washington, along with English-first groups, used these language laws as weapons in the battle over U.S.-Puerto Rican relations and the volatile debate over statehood. AMÍLCAR ANTONIO BARRETO is 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.

NASA and the Long Civil Rights Movement
The Public Health Nurses of Jim Crow Florida
Edited by BRIAN C. ODOM and STEPHEN P. WARING
“Shines new light on a variety of civil rights topics within aerospace history.”—Steven Moss, coauthor of We Could Not Fail: The First African Americans in the Space Program
“This book is seminal not only for scholars and public policy makers seeking to understand the complicated clinical, political, and social role of public health nursing but also, as importantly, for those seeking to understand the racial and economic structures affecting health care in the American South.”—Patricia D’Antonio, author of Nursing with a Message: Public Health Demonstration Projects in New York City
“The essays in this useful volume present a nice blend of social, cultural, and political history that provides new and exciting insights into the intersection of race and space.”—Kari Frederickson, author of Cold War Dixie: Militarization and Modernization in the American South
“Ardalan has provided an invaluable service by showing the ways in which nurses were on the front lines of bringing medical care and health resources to Floridians in the early twentieth century.” —Richard M. Mizelle Jr., author of Backwater Blues: The Mississippi Flood of 1927 in the African American Imagination
As NASA prepared for the launch of Apollo 11 in July 1969, many African American leaders protested the billions of dollars used to fund “space joyrides” rather than help tackle poverty, inequality, and discrimination at home. This volume examines such tensions as well as the ways in which NASA’s goal of space exploration aligned with the cause of racial equality. It provides new insights into the complex relationship between the space program and the civil rights movement in the Jim Crow South and abroad. Essays explore how thousands of jobs created during the space race offered new opportunities for minorities in places like Huntsville, Alabama, while at the same time segregation at NASA’s satellite tracking station in South Africa led to that facility’s closure. Other topics include black skepticism toward NASA’s framing of space exploration as “for the benefit of all mankind,” NASA’s track record in hiring women and minorities, and the efforts of black activists to increase minority access to education that would lead to greater participation in the space program. The volume also addresses how to best find and preserve archival evidence of African American contributions that are missing from narratives of space exploration. NASA and the Long Civil Rights Movement offers important lessons from history as today’s activists grapple with the distance between social movements like Black Lives Matter and scientific ambitions such as NASA’s mission to Mars.
Highlighting the long-unacknowledged role of a group of pioneering professional women, The Public Health Nurses of Jim Crow Florida tells the story of health-care workers who battled racism in a state where white supremacy formed the bedrock of society. They aimed to serve those people out of reach of modern medical care. In the era of Jim Crow discrimination, fear of mistreatment in medical facilities—along with the inability to miss work for medical reasons—meant that many African Americans in rural communities rarely saw doctors. Christine Ardalan shows how Florida’s public health nurses took up the charge, traveling into the Florida scrub to deliver health improvement information to the homes of black and white residents, many of whom were illiterate. Drawing on a rich body of public health and nursing records, Ardalan draws attention to the innovative ways nurses bridged the gap between these communities and government policies that addressed threats of infection and high rates of infant and maternal mortality. From the progressive era to the civil rights movement, Florida’s public health nurses worked to overcome the constraints of segregation. Their story is echoed by the experiences of today’s community health nurses, who are keenly aware that maintaining healthy lives for all Americans requires tackling the nation’s deep-rooted cultural challenges.

Deadly Virtue Fort Caroline and the Early Protestant Roots of American Whiteness
HEATHER MARTEL “Fresh and innovative. Using a comparative and Atlantic World perspective, Martel suggests alternate ways of looking at colonial Florida and provides new answers to old questions regarding settler-native interactions during the sixteenth century.” —Daniel S. Murphree, author of Constructing Floridians: Natives and Europeans in the Colonial Floridas, 1513–1783 In Deadly Virtue, Heather Martel argues that the French Protestant attempt to colonize Florida in the 1560s significantly shaped the developing concept of race in sixteenth-century America. Telling the story of the short-lived French settlement of Fort Caroline in what is now Jacksonville, Florida, Martel reveals how race, gender, sexuality, and Christian morality intersected to form the foundations of modern understandings of whiteness. Equipped with Calvinist theology and humoral science, an ancient theory that the human body is subject to physical change based on one’s emotions and environment, French settlers believed their Christian love could transform the cultural, spiritual, and political allegiances of Native Americans. But their conversion efforts failed when the colony was wiped out by the Spanish. Martel explains that the French took this misfortune as a sign of God’s displeasure with their collaborative ideals, and from this historical moment she traces the growth of separatist colonial strategies. Through the logic of Calvinist predestination, Martel argues, colonists came to believe that white, Christian bodies were beautiful, virtuous, entitled to wealth, and chosen by God. The history of Fort Caroline offers a key to understanding the resonances between religious morality and white supremacy in America today.
The Emergence of Capitalism in Early America CHRISTOPHER W. CALVO “An excellent and wide-ranging discussion of early nineteenthcentury political economy in America, showing it to have been the by-product of dialogue with European luminaries and particular American material and intellectual needs.”—Brian Schoen, coeditor of Between Sovereignty and Anarchy: The Politics of Violence in the American Revolutionary Era Due to the enormous influence of Adam Smith’s The Wealth of Nations on Western liberal economics, a tradition closely linked to the United States, many scholars assume that early American economists were committed to Smith’s ideas of free trade and small government. Debunking this belief, Christopher W. Calvo provides a comprehensive history of the nation’s economic thought from 1790 to 1860, tracing the development of a uniquely American understanding of capitalism. The Emergence of Capitalism in Early America shows how American economists challenged, adjusted, and adopted the ideas of European thinkers such as Adam Smith, David Ricardo, and Thomas Malthus to suit their particular interests. Calvo not only explains the divisions between American free trade and the version put forward by Smith, but he also discusses the sharp differences between northern and southern liberal economists. Emergent capitalism fostered a dynamic discourse in early America, including a homegrown version of socialism burgeoning in antebellum industrial quarters, as well as a reactionary brand of conservative economic thought circulating on slave plantations across the Old South. This volume also traces the origins and rise of nineteenth-century protectionism, a system that Calvo views as the most authentic expression of American political economy. Finally, Calvo examines early Americans’ awkward relationship with capitalism’s most complex institution—finance. Grounded in the economic debates, Atlantic conversations, political milieu, and material realities of the antebellum era, this book demonstrates that American thinkers fused different economic models, assumptions, and interests into a unique hybrid-capitalist system that shaped the trajectory of the nation’s economy. CHRISTOPHER W. CALVO teaches American history at Florida International University and Gulliver Preparatory in Miami, Florida.

Suburban Transformation and Racial Conflict
Art, Culture, and Identity on the Island and in the Diaspora
Edited by JORGE DUANY
“Delerme has conducted extensive ethnographic fieldwork with Puerto Ricans and other Latinos in Orlando to provide a full-fledged picture of a complex and heterogenous community that has become central to the economic, cultural, and political life of the ‘New South.’” —Jorge Duany, editor of Picturing Cuba: Art, Culture, and Identity on the Island and in the Diaspora
“Compelling and relevant. Takes readers on a journey through the history of Cuban art’s significance, demonstrating how art has mirrored the cultural life of the country as well as how politics affect the production of art itself.”—Isabel Alvarez Borland, coeditor of CubanAmerican Literature and Art
“A compelling ethnographic history of the rise and fall of Florida suburbs, places of great linguistic, cultural, and ethnic diversity. Delerme chronicles the stories of residents who have built communities in the face of growing national inequalities and poverty, anti-migrant sentiment, and class divides.”—Hannah Gill, author of The Latino Migration Experience in North Carolina: New Roots in the Old North State Latino Orlando portrays the experiences of first- and second-generation immigrants who have come to the Orlando metropolitan area from Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia, and other Latin American countries. While much research on immigration focuses on urban destinations, Simone Delerme delves into a middle- and upper-class suburban context, highlighting the profound demographic and cultural transformation of an overlooked immigrant hub. Drawing on interviews, observations, fieldwork, census data, and traditional and new media, Delerme reveals the important role of real estate developers in attracting Puerto Ricans—some of the first Spanish-speaking immigrants in the region—to Central Florida in the 1970s. She traces how language became a way of racializing and segregating Latino communities, leading to the growth of suburban ethnic enclaves. She documents not only the tensions between Latinos and non-Latinos but also the class-based distinctions that cause dissent within the Latino population. Arguing that Latino migrants are complicating racial categorizations and challenging the deep-rooted black-white binary that has long prevailed in the American South, Latino Orlando breaks down stereotypes of neighborhood decline and urban poverty and illustrates the diversity of Latinos in the region. SIMONE DELERME is the McMullan Associate Professor of Southern Studies and associate professor of anthropology at the University of Mississippi.

Picturing Cuba explores the evolution of Cuban visual art and its links to cubanía, or Cuban cultural identity. Featuring artwork from the Spanish colonial, republican, and postrevolutionary periods of Cuban history, as well as the contemporary diaspora, these richly illustrated essays trace the creation of Cuban art through shifting political, social, and cultural circumstances. Contributors examine colonial-era lithographs of Cuba’s landscape, architecture, people, and customs that portrayed the island as an exotic, tropical location. They show how the avant-garde painters of the vanguardia, or Havana School, wrestled with the significance of the island’s African and indigenous roots, and they also highlight subversive photography that depicts the harsh realities of life after the Cuban Revolution. They explore art created by the first generation of postrevolutionary exiles, which reflects a new identity— lo cubanoamericano, Cuban-Americanness—and expresses the sense of displacement experienced by Cubans who resettled in another country. A concluding chapter evaluates contemporary attitudes toward collecting and exhibiting postrevolutionary Cuban art in the United States. Encompassing works by Cubans on the island, in exile, and born in America, this volume delves into defining moments in Cuban art across three centuries, offering a kaleidoscopic view of the island’s people, culture, and history. JORGE DUANY is director of the Cuban Research Institute and professor of anthropology at Florida International University. He is the author of several books, including Un pueblo disperso: Dimensiones sociales y culturales de la diáspora cubana and Blurred Borders: Transnational Migration between the Hispanic Caribbean and the United States.

The Insubordination of Photography
La Joven Moderna in Interwar Argentina
Documentary Practices under Chile’s Dictatorship
Gender, Nation, and Popular Culture
ÁNGELES DONOSO MACAYA “The first book to focus fully on the complex and creative uses of photography to resist state violence, atrocity, censorship, and widespread authoritarianism in Chile between 1973 and 1990.” —Antonio J. Traverso, editor of Southern Screens: Cinema, Culture and the Global South After Augusto Pinochet rose to power in Chile in 1973, his government abducted, abused, and executed thousands of his political opponents. The Insubordination of Photography is the first book to analyze how various collectives, organizations, and independent media used photography to expose and protest the crimes of Pinochet’s authoritarian regime. Ángeles Donoso Macaya discusses the ways human rights groups such as the Vicariate of Solidarity used portraits of missing persons in order to make forced disappearances visible. She also calls attention to forensic photographs that served as incriminating evidence of government killings in the landmark Lonquén case. Donoso Macaya argues that the field of documentary photography in Chile was challenged and shaped by the precariousness of the nation’s politics and economics and shows how photojournalists found creative ways to challenge limitations imposed on the freedom of the press. In a culture saturated by disinformation and cover-ups and restricted by repression and censorship, photography became an essential tool to bring the truth to light. Featuring never-before-seen photographs and other archival material, this book reflects on the integral role of images in public memory and issues of reparation and justice. ÁNGELES DONOSO MACAYA, associate professor of Spanish at Borough of Manhattan Community College/CUNY, is coeditor of Latinas/os on the East Coast: A Critical Reader.

CECILIA TOSSOUNIAN “In this dynamic cultural history, Tossounian turns our attention to how ‘non-official gendered figures’ have played a large but underappreciated role in constructing and engendering Argentine national identity. Turning our attention away from the extremely well-studied gaucho, she reveals just how much of modernity and national identity was pinned on la joven moderna (the modern girl) in 1920s and 1930s Argentina.”—Rebekah E. Pite, author of Creating a Common Table in Twentieth-Century Argentina: Doña Petrona, Women, and Food “La Joven Moderna makes an important contribution to the historiography of modern Argentina and to the global history of women.” —Matthew B. Karush, author of Musicians in Transit: Argentina and the Globalization of Popular Music In this book, Cecilia Tossounian reconstructs different representations of modern femininity from 1920s and 1930s Argentina, a complex period in which the country saw prosperity and economic crisis, a growing cosmopolitan population, the emergence of consumer culture, and the development of nationalism. Tossounian analyzes how these popular images of la joven moderna—the modern girl—helped shape Argentina’s emerging national identity. Tossounian looks at visual and written portrayals of young womanhood in magazines, newspapers, pulp fiction, advertisements, music, films, and other media. She identifies and discusses four new types of young urban women: the flapper, the worker, the sportswoman, and the beauty contestant. She shows that these diverse figures, defined by social class, highlight the tensions between gender, nation, and modernity in interwar Argentina. Arguing that images of modern young women symbolized fears of the country’s moral decadence as well as hopes of national progress and civilization, La Joven Moderna in Interwar Argentina reveals that women were at the center of a public debate about modernity and its consequences. This book highlights the important but underappreciated role of gendered figures and popular culture in the ways Argentine citizens imagined themselves and their country during a formative period of cultural and social renewal. CECILIA TOSSOUNIAN is a researcher at Argentina’s National Scientific and Technical Research Council and at Universidad de San Andrés in Buenos Aires. She is coeditor of América Latina entre espacios: Redes, flujos e imaginarios globales.

An Archaeology and History of a Caribbean Sugar Plantation on Antigua
Archaeology of Domestic Landscapes of the Enslaved in the Caribbean
Edited by GEORGIA L. FOX
Edited by JAMES A. DELLE and ELIZABETH C. CLAY
“Presents fresh archaeological and historical information about an important Caribbean plantation. A tour de force in historical archaeology that will set the standard for future research.”—Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America “A detailed archaeological, historical, and landscape study of a significant plantation and heritage site. The chapters provide coverage of an array of topics ranging from provisioning among the enslaved to conditions of post-emancipation life.”—Douglas V. Armstrong, author of Creole Transformation from Slavery to Freedom: Historical Archaeology of the East End Community, St. John, Virgin Islands This volume uses archaeological and historical evidence to reconstruct daily life at Betty’s Hope plantation on the island of Antigua, one of the largest sugar plantations in the Caribbean. It demonstrates the rich information that multidisciplinary studies can provide about the effects of sugarcane agriculture on the region and its people. Drawing on ten years of research at the 300-year-old site, these essays uncover the plantation’s inner workings as well as its connections to broader historical developments in the Atlantic World. Excavations at the Great House reveal similarities to other British colonial sites, and the detailed records of the plantation owners describe their involvement in the slave trade. Artifacts uncovered from slave quarters—ceramic game tokens, repurposed bottle glass, and musket balls converted to fishing weights—speak to the agency of slaves in the face of difficult living conditions. Contributors also use documentary records and soil analysis to demonstrate how three centuries of sugarcane monocropping caused soil degradation that still affects the island. Today tourism has long surpassed sugar as Antigua’s primary economic driver. Looking at visitor exhibits and new technologies for exploring and interpreting the site, the volume discusses best practices in cultural heritage management at Betty’s Hope and other locations that are home to contested historical narratives of a colonial past.
“An important resource for understanding enslavement and colonialism in the Caribbean, containing a wide array of archaeological contexts. Contributors recognize ways that the built environment may have been a site of selfdetermination for the enslaved occupants and repeatedly show that slavery was in no way uniform.” —John M. Chenoweth, author of Simplicity, Equality, and Slavery While previous research on household archaeology in the colonial Caribbean has drawn heavily on artifact analysis, this volume provides the first in-depth examination of the architecture of slave housing during this period. It examines the considerations that went into constructing and inhabiting living spaces for the enslaved and reveals the diversity of people and practices in these settings. Contributors present case studies using written descriptions, period illustrations, architectural features, and other evidence to illustrate the wide variety of built environments for enslaved populations in places including Jamaica, the Bahamas, and the islands of the Lesser Antilles. They investigate how slaves defined their social positions and identities through house, yard, and garden space; they explore what daily life was like for slaves on military compounds; they compare the spatial arrangements of slave villages on plantations based on type of labor; and they show how the style of traditional labor houses became a form of vernacular architecture still in use today. This volume expands our understanding of the wide range of slave experiences across British, French, Dutch, and Danish colonies.

Authority, Autonomy, and the Archaeology of a Mississippian Community
Contact, Colonialism, and Native Communities in the Southeastern United States
ERIN S. NELSON
Edited by EDMOND A. BOUDREAUX III, MAUREEN MEYERS, and JAY K. JOHNSON
“This excellent book is an imaginative and innovative consideration of the history and materiality of monumental architecture and community at Parchman Place. Essential reading for scholars and students of the archaeology of the Mississippian Southeast.” —Christopher B. Rodning, coeditor of Fort San Juan and the Limits of Empire: Colonialism and Household Practice at the Berry Site “This detailed archaeological study of the Parchman Place site shows the important role of community negotiation within chiefdom power, providing a more comprehensive view of life in Mississippian communities.”—Maureen S. Meyers, coeditor of Archaeological Perspectives on the Southern Appalachians: A Multiscalar Approach This book is the first detailed investigation of the important archaeological site of Parchman Place in the Yazoo Basin, a defining area for understanding the Mississippian culture that spanned much of what is now the United States Southeast and Midwest before the midsixteenth century. Refining the widely accepted theory that this society was strongly hierarchical, Erin Nelson provides data that suggest communities navigated tensions between authority and autonomy in their placemaking and in their daily lives. Drawing on archaeological evidence from foodways, monumental and domestic architecture, and the organization of communal space at the site, Nelson argues that Mississippian people negotiated contradictory ideas about what it meant to belong to a community. For example, although they clearly had powerful leaders, communities built mounds and other structures in ways that re-created their views of the cosmos, expressing values of wholeness and balance. Nelson’s findings shed light on the inner workings of Mississippian communities and other hierarchical societies of the period.
“An important volume that will become an indispensable resource, providing a much-needed update on early contact in the North American Southeast with a rich emphasis on the agency and social lives of past indigenous communities.”—David H. Dye, editor of New Deal Archaeology in Tennessee: Intellectual, Methodological, and Theoretical Contributions The years AD 1500–1700 were a time of dramatic change for the indigenous inhabitants of southeastern North America, yet Native histories during this era have been difficult to reconstruct due to a scarcity of written records before the eighteenth century. Using archaeology to enhance our knowledge of the period, Contact, Colonialism, and Native Communities in the Southeastern United States presents new research on the ways Native societies responded to early contact with Europeans. Featuring sites from Kentucky to Mississippi to Florida, these case studies investigate how indigenous groups were affected by the expeditions of explorers such as Hernando de Soto, Pánfilo de Narváez, and Juan Pardo. Contributors re-create the social geography of the Southeast during this time, trace the ways Native institutions changed as a result of colonial encounters, and emphasize the agency of indigenous populations in situations of contact. They demonstrate the importance of understanding the economic, political, and social variability that existed between Native and European groups. Bridging the gap between historical records and material artifacts, this volume answers many questions and opens up further avenues for exploring these transformative centuries, pushing the field of early contact studies in new theoretical and methodological directions.

Bears Archaeological and Ethnohistorical Perspectives in Native Eastern North America
Edited by HEATHER A. LAPHAM and GREGORY A. WASELKOV “A critical work that explores the human-animal dynamic via the most iconic of other-than-human creatures, the bear.”—Matthew Betts, author of Place-Making in the Pretty Harbour Although scholars have long recognized the mythic status of bears in indigenous North American societies of the past, this is the first volume to synthesize the vast amount of archaeological and historical research on the topic. Bears charts the special relationship between the American black bear and humans in eastern Native American cultures across thousands of years. These essays draw on zooarchaeological, ethnohistorical, and ethnographic evidence from nearly 300 archaeological sites from Quebec to the Gulf of Mexico. Case studies focus on bear imagery in Native art and artifacts; the religious and economic significance of bears and bear products such as meat, fat, oil, and pelts; bears in Native worldviews, kinship systems, and cosmologies; and the use of bears as commodities in transatlantic trade. The case studies in Bears demonstrate that bears were not only a source of food but were also religious, economic, and political icons within indigenous cultures. This volume convincingly portrays the black bear as one of the most socially significant species in Native eastern North America. HEATHER A.

The Archaeology of Southeastern Native American Landscapes of the Colonial Era CHARLES R. COBB “This wide-ranging volume provides a fresh, innovative contribution to precontact and contact-era studies in the southeastern United States.”—Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America “Provides a thought-provoking synthesis of changes in native landscapes of the Southeast in the colonial era, from selective microhistories to large-scale regional and even global processes.”—Thomas J. Pluckhahn, coauthor of New Histories of Village Life at Crystal River Native American populations both accommodated and resisted the encroachment of European powers in southeastern North America from the arrival of Spaniards in the sixteenth century to the first decades of the American republic. Tracing changes to the region’s natural, cultural, social, and political environments, Charles Cobb provides an unprecedented survey of the landscape histories of Indigenous groups across this critically important area and time period. Cobb explores how Native Americans responded to the hardships of epidemic diseases, chronic warfare, and enslavement. Some groups developed new modes of migration and travel to escape conflict while others built new alliances to create safety in numbers. Cultural maps were redrawn as Native communities evolved into the groups known today as the Cherokee, Choctaw, Creek, Chickasaw, Catawba, and Seminole peoples. Cobb connects the formation of these coalitions to events in the wider Atlantic World, including the rise of plantation slavery, the growth of the deerskin trade, the birth of the consumer revolution, and the emergence of capitalism. Using archaeological data, historical documents, and ethnohistorical accounts, Cobb argues that Native inhabitants of the Southeast successfully navigated the challenges of this era, reevaluating longstanding assumptions that their cultures collapsed under the impact of colonialism.

Bioarchaeology of Frontiers and Borderlands
The Odd, the Unusual, and the Strange
Edited by CRISTINA I. TICA and DEBRA L. MARTIN
Bioarchaeological Explorations of Atypical Burials
“Richly theorized and methodologically rigorous, this volume delivers a timely and nuanced discussion of frontiers and borderlands not merely as the peripheries of complex societies but as their own complex and dynamic spaces of interaction and lived experience.” —Bethany L. Turner, Georgia State University
Edited by TRACY K. BETSINGER, AMY B. SCOTT, and ANASTASIA TSALIKI
“The subject of boundaries and frontiers has not been explored in bioarchaeological studies to its full potential. In this volume, contributors discuss boundaries from multiple perspectives that crosscut political, social, and economic domains.”—Dale L. Hutchinson, author of Disease and Discrimination: Poverty and Pestilence in Colonial Atlantic America
“Impressive in its geographical and temporal scope, this fascinating compendium of case studies sheds new light on atypical, or ‘deviant,’ burial.”—Carrie L. Sulosky Weaver, author of The Bioarchaeology of Classical Kamarina
Frontiers and territorial borders are places of contested power where societies collide, interact, and interconnect. Using bioanthropological case studies from around the world, this volume explores how people in the past created, maintained, or changed their identities while living on the edge between two or more different spheres of influence. Essays in this volume examine borderland settings in cultural contexts that include Roman Egypt, Iron Age Italy, eleventh-century Iceland, and the precontact American Great Basin and Southwest. Contributors look at isotope data, skeletal stress markers, craniometric and dental metric information, mortuary arrangements, and other evidence to examine how frontier life can affect health and socioeconomic status. Illustrating the many meanings and definitions of frontiers and borderlands, they question assumptions about the relationships between people, place, and identity. As national borders continue to ignite controversy in today’s society and politics, the research presented here is more important than ever. The long history of people who have lived in borderland areas helps us understand the challenges of adapting to these dynamic and often violent places. CRISTINA I.

Abnormal burial practices have long been a source of fascination and debate within the fields of mortuary archaeology and bioarchaeology. The Odd, the Unusual, and the Strange investigates an unparalleled geographic and temporal range of burials that differ from the usual customs of their broader societies, emphasizing the importance of a holistic, context-driven approach to these intriguing cases. From an Andean burial dating to 3500 BC to “vampire” burials in medieval Poland to mummified bodies interred in the Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, Sicily, during the twentieth century, the studies in this volume cross the globe and span millennia. Moving away from the simplistic assumption that these burials represent people who were considered deviant in society, contributors demonstrate the importance of an integrated biocultural approach in determining why an individual was buried in an unusual way. Drawing on historical, sociocultural, archaeological, and biological data, this volume critically evaluates the binary of “typical” versus “atypical” burials. It expands our understanding of the continuum of variation within mortuary practices, helping researchers better interpret burial evidence to learn about the people and cultures of the past. TRACY K.

Migrations in Late Mesoamerica Edited by CHRISTOPHER S. BEEKMAN “Sensible, refreshing, and very much needed. This book updates the state of studies of migrations in Late Mesoamerica, embedded within historical backgrounds and researched through various disciplines.”—Eugenia Ibarra Rojas, Universidad de Costa Rica “Compelling. Ancient populations faced many of the same challenges our society grapples with today, and ancient migrations forever altered the linguistic, cultural, and biological mix of the landscape of Mesoamerica, just as modern migrations are changing our world.” —Brett A. Houk, author of Ancient Maya Cities of the Eastern Lowlands Bringing the often-neglected topic of migration to the forefront of ancient Mesoamerican studies, this volume uses an illuminating multidisciplinary approach to address the role of population movements in Mexico and Central America from AD 500 to 1500, the tumultuous centuries before European contact. Clarifying what has to date been chiefly speculation, researchers from the fields of archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistics, ethnohistory, and art history delve deeply into the causes and impacts of prehistoric migration in the region. They draw on evidence including records of the Nahuatl language, murals painted at the Cacaxtla polity, ceramics in the style known as Coyotlatelco, skeletal samples from multiple sites, and conquest-era accounts of the origins of the Chichén Itzá Maya from both Native and Spanish scribes. The diverse datasets in this volume help reveal the choices and priorities of migrants during times of political, economic, and social changes that unmoored populations from ancestral lands. Migrations in Late Mesoamerica shows how migration patterns are vitally important to study due to their connection to environmental and political disruption in both ancient societies and today’s world.

Approaches to Monumental Landscapes of the Ancient Maya Edited by BRETT A. HOUK, BARBARA ARROYO, and TERRY G. POWIS “Containing cutting-edge research by leading scholars in Maya archaeology, this volume provides readers with a greater appreciation and richer understanding of the diverse ways in which the Maya interacted with and transformed the world around them.”—Jeffrey Glover, Georgia State University This volume brings together a wide spectrum of new approaches to ancient Maya studies in an innovative exploration of how the Preclassic and Classic Maya shaped their world. Moving beyond the towering temples and palaces typically associated with the Maya civilization, contributors present unconventional examples of monumental Maya landscapes. Featuring studies from across the central Maya lowlands, Belize, and the northern and central Maya highlands and spanning over 10,000 years of human occupation in the region, these chapters show how the word “monumental” can be used to describe natural and constructed landscapes, political and economic landscapes, and ritual and sacred landscapes. Examples include a massive system of aqueducts and canals at the Kaminaljuyu site, a vast arena designed for public spectacle at Chan Chich, and even the complex realms of Maya cosmology as represented by the ritual cave at Las Cuevas. By including physical, conceptual, and symbolic ways monumentality pervaded ancient Maya culture, this volume broadens traditional understandings of how the Maya interacted with their environment and provides exciting analytical perspectives to guide future study.

The Archaeology of HumanEnvironmental Dynamics on the North American Atlantic Coast
Historical Archaeology and Indigenous Collaboration
Edited by LESLIE REEDERMYERS, JOHN A. TURCK, and TORBEN C. RICK
D. RAE GOULD, HOLLY HERBSTER, HEATHER LAW PEZZAROSSI, and STEPHEN A. MROZOWSKI
“This is an outstanding volume, an impressive integrated understanding of the human presence along the Eastern Seaboard of North America.”—P. J. Capelotti, author of Adventures in Archaeology Using archaeology as a tool for understanding long-term ecological and climatic change, this volume synthesizes current knowledge about the ways Native Americans interacted with their environments along the Atlantic coast of North America over the past 10,000 years. Leading scholars discuss how the region’s indigenous peoples grappled with significant changes to shorelines and estuaries, from sea level rise to shifting plant and animal distributions to European settlement and urbanization. Together, they provide a valuable perspective spanning millennia on the diverse marine and nearshore ecosystems of the entire Eastern Seaboard—the icy waters of Newfoundland and the Gulf of Maine, the Middle Atlantic regions of the New York Bight and the Chesapeake Bay, and the warm shallows of the St. Johns River and the Florida Keys. This broad comparative outlook brings together populations and areas previously studied in isolation. Today, the Atlantic coast is home to tens of millions of people who inhabit ecosystems that are in dramatic decline. The research in this volume not only illuminates the past but also provides important tools for managing coastal environments into an uncertain future.

Discovering Histories That Have Futures
“Deftly weaves historic records and archaeological research through an Indigenous lens to create a well-crafted story of the Nipmuc of New England.”—Joe Watkins, coeditor of Challenging the Dichotomy “Demonstrates how genuinely inclusive archaeology can and should be. The complicated and long underappreciated histories of New England’s Native Nipmuc people are brought to life through the wholly compelling narratives of Nipmuc individuals from the seventeenth century to the present carefully pieced together from traditional knowledge, fragments of pottery and stone, snippets of documents, and the physical traces of meaningful spaces and places.”—Audrey Horning, coeditor of Becoming and Belonging in Ireland AD c. 1200–1600 Highlighting the strong relationship between New England’s Nipmuc people and their land from the precontact period to the present day, this book helps demonstrate that the history of Native Americans did not end with the arrival of Europeans. This is the rich result of a twenty-year collaboration between indigenous and nonindigenous authors, who use their own example to argue that Native peoples need to be integral to any research project focused on indigenous history and culture. The stories traced in this book center around three Nipmuc archaeological sites in Massachusetts—the seventeenth-century town of Magunkaquog, the Sarah Boston Farmstead in Hassanamesit Woods, and the Cisco Homestead on the Hassanamisco Reservation. The authors bring together indigenous oral histories, historical documents, and archaeological evidence to show how the Nipmuc people outlasted armed conflict and Christianization efforts instigated by European colonists. Exploring key issues of continuity, authenticity, and identity, Historical Archaeology and Indigenous Collaboration provides a model for research projects that seek to incorporate indigenous knowledge and scholarship.

Historical Ecology and Archaeology in the Galápagos Islands
Maritime Communities of the Ancient Andes Edited by GABRIEL PRIETO and DANIEL H. SANDWEISS
A Legacy of Human Occupation
PETER W. STAHL, FERNANDO ASTUDILLO, ROSS W. JAMIESON, DIEGO QUIROGA, and FLORENCIO DELGADO “Highly original. A major contribution to the human history and cultural ecology of the Galápagos Islands. The authors have woven together topics as diverse as global economics, historical archaeology, and biodiversity in their study of one of the world’s most intellectually stimulating archipelagos.”—David Steadman, Florida Museum of Natural History The Galápagos Islands are one of the world’s premiere nature attractions, home to unique ecosystems widely thought to be untouched and pristine. This book reveals that the archipelago is not as isolated as many imagine, examining how centuries of human occupation have transformed its landscape. The authors show that the island chain has been a part of global networks since its discovery in 1535 and trace the changes caused by human colonization. Central to this history is the sugar plantation Hacienda El Progreso on San Cristóbal Island. Here, zooarchaeological and archaeobotanical evidence documents the introduction of exotic species and landscape transformations, and material evidence attests that inhabitants maintained connections to the outside world for consumer goods. Beyond illuminating the human history of the islands, the authors also look at the impact of visitors to Galápagos National Park today, raising questions about tourism’s role in biological conservation, preservation, and restoration.

“A landmark volume for the study of Andean maritime communities and an essential addition to the bookshelves of all archaeologists, historians, and anthropologists interested in fishing societies.” —Yuichi Matsumoto, Yamagata University “Long overdue. A valuable resource.” —Mary Glowacki, bureau chief and state archaeologist, Florida Division of Historical Resources Maritime Communities of the Ancient Andes examines how settlements along South America’s Pacific coastline played a role in the emergence, consolidation, and collapse of Andean civilizations from the Late Pleistocene era through Spanish colonization. Providing the first synthesis of data from Chile, Peru, and Ecuador, this wide-ranging volume evaluates and revises long-standing research on ancient maritime sites across the region. These essays look beyond the subsistence strategies of maritime communities and their surroundings to discuss broader anthropological issues related to social adaptation, monumentality, urbanism, and political and religious change. Among many other topics, the evidence in this volume shows that the maritime industry enabled some urban communities to draw on marine resources in addition to agriculture, ensuring their success. During the Colonial period, many fishermen were exempt from paying tributes to the Spanish, and their specialization helped them survive as the Andean population dwindled. Contributors also consider the relationship between fishing and climate change—including weather patterns like El Niño. The research in this volume demonstrates that communities situated close to the sea and its resources should be seen as critical components of broader social, economic, and ideological dynamics in the complex history of Andean cultures.

Joyce and Geometry
James Joyce’s Epiphanies
“A fascinating revelation of the importance of geometry and topography in Joyce’s work. Basing his study on rich close readings and a complex conceptual construction, McMorran connects Joyce’s linguistic experiments with nonlinearity to non-Euclidean conceptions of space.”—Valérie Bénéjam, coeditor of Cognitive Joyce “In writing Ulysses and Finnegans Wake, Joyce admitted to being preoccupied with ‘squaring the circle.’ McMorran sees more than a passing metaphor here and discerns in these ‘polyhedrons of scripture’ a genuine and informed interest in post-Euclidean geometry.”—Tim Conley, author of Useless Joyce: Textual Functions, Cultural Appropriations In a paradigm shift away from classical understandings of geometry, nineteenth-century mathematicians developed new systems that featured surprising concepts such as the idea that parallel lines can curve and intersect. Providing evidence to confirm much that has largely been speculation, Joyce and Geometry reveals the full extent to which the modernist writer James Joyce was influenced by the radical theories of non-Euclidean geometry. Through close readings of Ulysses, Finnegans Wake, and Joyce’s notebooks, Ciaran McMorran demonstrates that Joyce’s experiments with nonlinearity stem from a fascination with these new mathematical concepts. He highlights the maze-like patterns traced by Joyce’s characters as they wander Dublin’s streets; he explores recurring motifs such as the topography of the Earth’s curved surface and time as the fourth dimension of space; and he investigates in detail the enormous influence of Giordano Bruno, Henri Poincaré, and other writers who were critical of the Euclidean tradition. Arguing that Joyce’s obsession with measuring and mapping space throughout his works encapsulates a modern crisis between geometric and linguistic modes of representation, McMorran delves into a major theme in Joyce’s work that has not been fully explored until now.
SANGAM MACDUFF “This highly readable and well-written book covers Joyce’s main texts in order to analyze the Irish writer’s art of the epiphany with great acumen and gusto. Panepiphanal World is bound to become a classic of Joycean criticism given the widespread interest in a specific genre that has been neglected for more than forty years.”—Jean-Michel Rabaté, fellow, American Academy of Arts and Sciences “Panepiphanal World is the most substantial and detailed study of epiphany concentrating solely on Joyce himself.”—Morris Beja, author of Epiphany in the Modern Novel Panepiphanal World is the first in-depth study of the forty short texts James Joyce called “epiphanies.” Composed between 1901 and 1904, at the beginning of Joyce’s writing career, these texts are often dismissed as juvenilia. Sangam MacDuff argues that the epiphanies are an important point of origin for Joyce’s entire body of work, showing how they shaped the structure, style, and language of his later writings. Tracing the ways Joyce incorporates the epiphanies into Dubliners, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, Ulysses, and Finnegans Wake, MacDuff describes the defining characteristics of the epiphanies— silence and repetition, materiality and reflexivity—as a set of recurrent and interrelated tensions in the development of Joyce’s oeuvre. MacDuff uses fresh archival evidence, including a new typescript of the epiphanies that he discovered, to show the importance of the epiphanies throughout Joyce’s career. MacDuff compares Joyce’s concept of epiphany to Classical, Biblical, and Romantic revelations, showing that instead of pointing to divine transcendence or the awakening of the sublime, Joyce’s epiphanies are rooted in and focused on language. MacDuff argues that the Joycean epiphany is an apt characterization of modernist literature, and that the linguistic forces at play in these early texts are also central to the work of Joyce’s contemporaries including Woolf, Beckett, and Eliot.

Gertrude Stein and the Making of Jewish Modernism
Edith Wharton and the Modern Privileges of Age
MELANIE V. DAWSON
“Will become the defining analysis of the question of Jewishness in Stein’s writing—a question absolutely crucial to understanding this great modernist writer. An important and long-awaited contribution to Stein studies.”—Barbara Will, author of Unlikely Collaboration: Gertrude Stein, Bernard Faÿ, and the Vichy Dilemma
“A comprehensive and sophisticated study that draws attention to the various manifestations and implications of age and aging in modern literature. This volume goes well beyond Wharton’s body of work to offer important analyses of her contemporaries on their own terms, as well as thought-provoking comparisons of Wharton and her fellow writers.” —Gary Totten, editor of Memorial Boxes and Guarded Interiors: Edith Wharton and Material Culture
“The first full-length study of Gertrude Stein’s Jewishness and how it is central rather than ancillary to her foundational contributions to modernist literature, this book is convincing, lucidly written, and a joy to read.”—Maria Damon, author of Postliterary America: From Bagel Shop Jazz to Micropoetries “A thorough and wide-ranging account of Jewishness in Stein’s oeuvre, making a convincing case that for Stein, modernism and the modern were both in important senses metaphorically Jewish.” —Maren Tova Linett, author of Modernism, Feminism, and Jewishness Challenging the assumption that modernist writer Gertrude Stein seldom integrated her Jewish identity and heritage into her work, this book uncovers Stein’s constant and varied writing about Jewish topics throughout her career. Amy Feinstein argues that Judaism was central to Stein’s ideas about modernity, showing how Stein connects the modernist era to the Jewish experience. Combing through Stein’s scholastic writings, drafting notebooks, and literary works, Feinstein analyzes references to Judaism that have puzzled scholars. She reveals the never-before-discussed influence of Matthew Arnold as well as a hidden Jewish framework in Stein’s epic novel The Making of Americans. In Stein’s experimental “voices” poems, Feinstein identifies an explicitly Jewish vocabulary that expresses themes of marriage, nationalism, and Zionism. She also shows how Wars I Have Seen, written in Vichy France during World War II, compares the experience of wartime occupation with the historic persecution of Jews. Affirming the importance of Jewish identity and modernist style to Gertrude Stein’s legacy as a writer, this book radically changes the way we read and appreciate Stein’s work. AMY FEINSTEIN teaches English in the New York City public schools.
Providing a counterpoint to readings of modern American culture that focus on the cult of youth, this book focuses on representations of modern American identities past early youth in twentieth-century literature. Looking at the works of Edith Wharton and her contemporaries, Melanie Dawson argues that obsessions with age and the narrative conflicts they generated act as central narratives characterizing a popular United States modernity. Dawson examines how representations of aging connect the work of Edith Wharton to writings by a number of modern authors, including Willa Cather, Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings, Zora Neale Hurston, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Floyd Dell, Eugene O’Neill, and Gertrude Atherton. For these writers, age-based ideologies filter through narratives of mourning for youth lost in the Great War, the trauma connected to personal change, the contested self-determination of the aged, the perceived problem of middle-aged sexuality, fantasies of rejuvenation, and persistent patterns of patriarchal authority. The work of these writers shows how the charged dynamics of age gave rise to contests about property and authority. Constructions of age-based values also reinforced gender norms, producing questions about personal value that were directed toward women of all ages. By interpreting Edith Wharton’s and her contemporaries’ works in relation to age-based anxieties, Dawson sets Wharton’s work at the center of a vital debate about the contested privileges associated with age in contemporary culture. MELANIE V. DAWSON is professor of English at the College of William and Mary. She is the author of Emotional Reinventions: Realist-Era Representations Beyond Sympathy and coeditor of American Literary History and the Turn toward Modernity.

Women Making Modernism
Flora of Florida, Volume VII
Edited by ERICA GENE DELSANDRO
Dicotyledons, Orobanchaceae through Asteraceae
“A fascinating case for the ‘making’ of modernism by women writers through their networking, contestation, and affiliation with each other. This volume’s widely admired contributors more than live up to their reputations with their thought-provoking analyses.” —Holly A. Laird, author of Women Coauthors
RICHARD P. WUNDERLIN, BRUCE F. HANSEN, and ALAN R. FRANCK
Challenging the tendency of scholars to view women writers of the modernist era as isolated artists who competed with one another for critical and cultural acceptance, Women Making Modernism reveals the robust networks women created and maintained that served as platforms and support for women’s literary careers. The essays in this volume highlight both familiar and lesser-known writers including Virginia Woolf, Mina Loy, Dorothy Richardson, Emma Goldman, May Sinclair, and Mary Hutchinson. For these writers, relationships and correspondences with other women were key to navigating a literary culture that not only privileged male voices but also reserved most financial and educational opportunities for men. Their examples show how women’s writing communities interconnected to generate a current of energy, innovation, and ambition that was central to the modernist movement. Contributors to this volume argue that the movement’s prominent intellectual networks were dependent on the invisible work of women artists, a fact that the field of modernist studies has too long overlooked. Amplifying the reality of women’s contributions to modernism, this volume advocates for an “orientation of openness” in reading and teaching literature from the period, helping to ease the tensions between feminist and modernist studies.

“Provides a broad, multi-scalar view of Adena/Hopewell and human interaction over a variety of landscapes in the Southeast. . . . [A] much-needed new perspective.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “[The essays] use both U.S. and British views of landscape: the former focuses on rigorously empirical investigations of human-environment interaction, while the latter asks what are the myriad ways past people shaped, cognized, and dwelled in their worlds. . . . Recommended.” —Choice “Illustrate[s] how landscape perspectives are leading to new insights into the past lifeways that created newly discovered and several quite well-known archaeological sites across the southeastern United States.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “This volume fills an important gap in Southeast archaeology, the Early and Middle Woodland periods.

PAUL J. WHITE
TODD A. HANSON
“A very good introduction to the archaeology of U.S. mining. . . . Highly recommended.” —Choice
“A welcome, and very readable, addition to the small number of national surveys of the physical legacy of the Cold War. . . . Challenges us to use archaeology to humanize the conflict and to dig deeper into the material aspects of nationalism, violence, secrecy, mendacity, imperialism, exclusion, racism, sexism, and xenophobia.”—European Journal of Archaeology
“Finally there is a volume dedicated to the archaeological investigation of historical miningrelated sites in the United States. . . . Deserves to be on the shelves of all levels of students and professionals who deal with this vast resource base.”—Historical Archaeology “Provides a rich account of historical archaeology as it has focused on American mining. . . .

now in paperback The Rosewood Massacre An Archaeology and History of Intersectional Violence
EDWARD GONZÁLEZTENNANT “An ambitious project with few precedents. . . . González-Tennant argues that the underlying causes of the Rosewood Massacre can be traced to historical antagonisms of a national scale, and reflects the underlying patterns of many such events throughout American history.” —Historical Archaeology “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 Drawing on new archaeological methods and theories, The Rosewood Massacre investigates the 1923 race riot that, in a weeklong series of events, devastated the predominantly African American community of Rosewood, Florida.

There are wonderful photographs and illustrations, and Smith is a fine writer. Maritime historians, archaeologists, and scholars of the Caribbean will find much of interest here.”—International Journal of Maritime History “Fascinating information.”—Choice “Smith’s pursuit of the island’s history is impressive; he supplements two decades of fieldwork identifying and investigating more than seventy shipwrecks and terrestrial sites with extensive documentary material drawn from British, French, Dutch, and Spanish archives and oral histories.”—New West Indian Guide “Neatly summarizes the history and archaeology of these small islands located at the crossroads of the Caribbean, covering an array of topics as diverse as crocodiles and pirates, the simultaneous wrecking of 10 ships on a treacherous reef, the building of sloops and schooners, and the importance of sea turtles as a food source for colonists and mariners.” —Kevin Crisman, Texas A&M University ROGER C. SMITH served as state underwater archaeologist for the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research for three decades.

Edited by JEFFREY L. LITTLEJOHN, REGINALD K. ELLIS, and PETER B. LEVY “The essays in this volume offer important insights.”—Journal of American History “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 Jim Crow 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 chapters connect the activism of today to a deeply historical, wide-ranging fight for equality.

Nation within a Nation The American South and the Federal Government
Edited by GLENN FELDMAN “The chapters—individually and collectively—make a powerful case for southern distinctiveness and illustrate the southernization of the relationship between non-southern states and the federal government.”—Journal of American Studies “The book is an interesting read for those concerned with the history of the South, but also for those interested in how newer issues such as the U.S.-Mexican border and criminal justice policies fit within the region’s history.” —New Books in Political Science “Genuinely transnational in scope. . . . Make[s] significant contributions to our understanding of the relationship between the South and the federal government.”—Register of the Kentucky Historical Society “Original, illuminating, and provocative, Nation within a Nation is certain to challenge those who deny southern exceptionalism. These essays show the complexity, hypocrisy, and, yes, perversion in this tortured relationship.” —Orville Vernon Burton, author of The Age of Lincoln GLENN FELDMAN (1962–2015) was professor of history at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. He is the author or editor of numerous books, including Painting Dixie Red: When, Where, Why, and How the South Became Republican and Before Brown: Civil Rights and White Backlash in the Modern South.

Essential.”—Choice “An excellent series of essays on the concept of the ‘liberal consensus.’ . . . Provocative, thoughtful, and persuasive.”—Journal of American History “An exceptionally fine collection that distills the very latest writing on mid-twentieth-century U.S. politics and society.”—Gareth Davies, author of From Opportunity to Entitlement: The Transformation and Decline of Great Society Liberalism When first published in 1976, Godfrey Hodgson’s America in Our Time won immediate recognition as a major interpretive study of the postwar era. In The Liberal Consensus Reconsidered, leading scholars—including Hodgson himself—confront his long-standing theory that a “liberal consensus” shaped the United States after World War II.

Peacock, author of Grounded Globalism: How the U.S. South Embraces the World “This wide-ranging volume reminds us consistently that the U.S. South has always been an invention but one that exerts uncanny mobility across multiple borders and histories.” —Melanie Benson Taylor, author of Reconstructing the Native South: American Indian Literature and the Lost Cause MARTYN BONE is associate professor of American literature at the University of Copenhagen.

“Refreshing and illustrative. . . . Curious travelers as well as scholars from historical geography and allied disciplines interested in slavery, empire, and the Europeanization of the world will find much to savor in this new recipe about historical Cuba.”—AAG Review of Books “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: Identity, Nationality, and Culture “This comprehensive synthesis fills an important gap in the literature on early colonial Cuba.”—Jane Landers, editor of Colonial Plantations and Economy in Florida “A commendable and important achievement.” —Jason M. Yaremko, author of Indigenous Passages to Cuba, 1515–1900 Scholarly and popular attention tends to focus heavily on Cuba’s recent history. Key to the New World is the first comprehensive history of early colonial Cuba written in English and fills the gap in our knowledge of the island before 1700. LUIS MARTÍNEZ-FERNÁNDEZ, professor of history at the University of Central Florida, is the author of Revolutionary Cuba: A History.
“Provides a valuable road map of the tangled law and politics of U.S. immigration policies.”—Foreign Affairs “Forcefully demonstrates how the case of Haitian refugee detention became the basis for America’s inhumane response to refugees arriving directly on its shores.”—Alex Stepick, author of Pride against Prejudice: Haitians in the United States “Of urgent topical and contemporary significance, providing a salutary context to today’s political debates. Shows how systems, policies, and even detention centers that were designed for Haitian refugees grew insidiously over the decades into a more and more encompassing immigrant detention system. An original and fascinating contribution.”—Aviva Chomsky, author of Undocumented: How Immigration Became Illegal Investigating when detention became a centerpiece of U.S. immigration policy, Carl Lindskoog reveals that systems designed for Haitian refugees laid the groundwork for the way immigrants to America are treated today. When an influx of Haitian migrants and asylum seekers came to the U.S. in the 1970s, the government responded with exclusionary policies and detention, setting a precedent for future waves of immigrants. Detain and Punish provides essential historical context for the challenges faced by today’s immigrant groups, which are some of the most critical issues of our time. CARL LINDSKOOG is assistant professor of history at Raritan Valley Community College.

Essential.”—Choice “Offers a fascinating and thorough analysis of the chosen texts, grounding them not only in the context of H.D.’s own experiences and recognizing the trauma of two World Wars but also in the context of post-war Europe.” —Forum for Modern Language Studies “Thoroughly accounts for the modernist’s overlooked late-career prose.”—Tulsa Studies in Women’s Literature “Vetter’s book reroutes standard narratives about women’s war writing, late modernism, and H.D. by focusing on her historically expansive prose writings of the 1940s.”—Marsha Bryant, author of Women’s Poetry and Popular Culture “Demonstrating how literary aspects of H.D.’s late prose contribute to politically attuned cultural work, Vetter astutely counters longstanding claims about H.D.’s ‘escapism.’” —Miranda Hickman, author of The Geometry of Modernism “An important, meticulously researched treatment of H.D.’s post–WWII writing.”—Madelyn Detloff, author of The Value of Virginia Woolf LARA VETTER, professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, is the editor of H.D.’s By Avon River and the author of Modernist Writings and Religio-scientific Discourse: H.D., Loy, and Toomer.
“Lounsberry has done for Woolf’s diaries what the diaries once did for Woolf’s novels, and what all great literary criticism seeks to do: It takes a canonical work of literature and offers an entirely new way of seeing it.”—New Republic “Lounsberry uses these [diaries] to demonstrate that as fascism flourished and dear friends died, diaries—as a lifeline and a path forward—became integral to both Woolf’s doing and her undoing. . . . Essential.”—Choice “In her comprehensive, close readings of Woolf’s entire diary, Lounsberry significantly advances scholarship on Woolf’s most sustained literary endeavor. . . . Lounsberry enhances our understanding of the diary as a genre informed by its own traditions, aesthetics, and intertextual networks throughout history. She also showcases how Woolf’s diary is itself a work of art.”—Review of English Studies “Lounsberry establishes how central to Woolf’s personal and creative being was diary-writing.” —Panthea Reid, author of Art and Affection In her third and final volume on Virginia Woolf’s diaries, Barbara Lounsberry reveals new insights about the courageous last years of the modernist writer’s life, from 1929 until Woolf’s suicide in 1941. BARBARA LOUNSBERRY is professor emerita of English at the University of Northern Iowa. She is the author of Becoming Virginia Woolf: Her Early Diaries and the Diaries She Read and Virginia Woolf’s Modernist Path: Her Middle Diaries and the Diaries She Read.
