Shrimp Country Recipes and Tales from the Southern Coasts

ANNA MARLIS BURGARD A bounty of flavors from the Gulf to the Atlantic “Shrimp lovers, both cooks and eaters, absolutely need this book, but so does any traveler or armchair epicure who values the culinary traditions of coastal America.”—Michael Stern, coauthor of Roadfood “Not only is Shrimp Country a complete compendium of southern shrimp; it is a tasty treat for both reading and cooking.”—Elizabeth Williams, author of New Orleans: A Food Biography “Takes us on a journey through the creeks, bogs, sounds, and seas that yield one of America’s most precious resources—sweet, tender shrimp.” —Nancy White, author of Jacksonville Food Trucks “A wonderful culinary journey. From the recipes peppered with chefs’ anecdotes and information for home cooks and travelers, Burgard has compiled a mouthwatering celebration of the sweet crustacean.” —Heather McPherson, coauthor of Good Catch


Embark on a fresh and delicious culinary tour of coastal America! Shrimp Country invites readers to discover the southern shoreline from Texas to the Carolinas, savoring the region’s sea air, saltwater, and shrimp. Shrimp is a perfect ingredient. Mild enough to be a part of delicately flavored dishes and succulent enough to be eaten on its own, it pairs well with both spicy and sweet ingredients and can be fried, sautéed, steamed, broiled, or grilled. In this savory homage to the crustacean, Anna Marlis Burgard gathers more than 100 tempting recipes, from regional classics like perloo, wiggle, and bog to global fare such as shrimp empanadas, shrimp saganaki, and tom kha gai. Coastal families share their favorite recipes, and seaside restaurants reveal the tasty secrets that lure in customers. Brimming with the larger-than-life personalities of trawler captains, food truck masters, diner cooks, and award-winning chefs, Shrimp Country is a love letter to coastal communities and their joy-filled, soul-fueling kitchens. Kick off your shoes, roll up your sleeves, and dig in!

Waiting for Contact The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence

LAWRENCE SQUERI Why do we pursue the quest for alien life? “A cogent, engaging history of humanity’s most ambitious quest—seeking outward for other minds.”—David Brin, author of Existence “A fascinating perspective on humankind’s obsession for knowing if there is anyone else out there.”—Gerrit L. Verschuur, author of The Invisible Universe: The Story of Radio Astronomy “Squeri has written what will likely be the definitive history of the early days of SETI that includes profiles of some of its leading characters.”—Ben Zuckerman, coeditor of Extraterrestrials: Where Are They?

HISTORY/TECHNOLOGY/AERONAUTICS & ASTRONAUTICS September 208 pp. | 6 x 9 ISBN 978-0-8130-6214-3 | Cloth $26.95

Imagine a network of extraterrestrials in radio contact with each other across the universe, superior beings who hail from advanced civilizations quadrillions of miles away, just waiting for Earth to tune in. Some people believe it’s only a matter of time before we discover the right “station.” Waiting for Contact tells the story of the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) movement, which emerged in 1959 as new technological developments turned what once was speculation into science: astronomers began using radio telescopes to listen for messages from space. Boosted by support from Frank Drake, Philip Morrison, and Carl Sagan, the SETI movement gained followers and continues to capture imaginations today. In this one-of-a-kind history, Lawrence Squeri looks at the people, the reasons, the goals, and the mindsets behind SETI. He shows how it started as an expression of the times, a way out of Cold War angst with hope for a better world. SETI’s early advocates thought that with guidance from technically and ethically advanced outsiders, humanity might learn how to avoid horrors like global warfare and economic crisis and the threat of nuclear annihilation. Squeri also describes the challenges SETI has faced over the years: the struggle to be taken seriously by the scientific community and by NASA, competition for access to radio telescopes, perpetual lack of funding, and opposition by the government. Yet—lest readers be tempted into similar skepticism—he points out that if, against all expectations, the embattled SETI movement finally succeeds, the long-awaited first signal picked up by its radio antennas will usher the greatest shift in human history. LAWRENCE SQUERI is professor emeritus of history at East Stroudsburg University.

Experiencing the Art of Pas de Deux JENNIFER CARLYNN KRONENBERG and CARLOS MIGUEL GUERRA An intimate look at the artistic complexities of partnering “An insightful read from one of the ballet world’s most beloved married couples!” —Melinda Roy, former principal dancer, New York City Ballet “Wonderfully complete and instructive, written by two artists who have lived what they write about and are sharing their life experience from a deep and very human viewpoint. Bravo!”—Donald Mahler, former director, Metropolitan Opera Ballet “Perfect for inspiring dancers who want to learn more about the art of partnering.” —Lauren Jonas, cofounder and artistic director, Diablo Ballet Mastering the pas de deux—or “step of two”—requires more than just physical proficiency; it demands genuine commitment between dancers. Respect, patience, and etiquette matter just as much as technique. The best partners communicate effectively through breath, eye contact, and musical cues. In Experiencing the Art of Pas de Deux, professional dance couple Jennifer Kronenberg and Carlos Miguel Guerra demystify the physical, emotional, and artistic intricacies behind the art of two dancing as one. Experienced principal dancers and ballet instructors, Kronenberg and Guerra disclose key components of partnering work often overlooked in classes, such as how to build and maintain the connections necessary for a trusting relationship and thus a successful team. Their combined explanations illuminate choreographic work from both male and female perspectives and detail the responsibilities of each partner. With step-bystep instructions for proper posture, lifts, jumps, turns, and even dance conditioning, each chapter’s lesson includes personal anecdotes, offering an unusually intimate look at how partners can support one another during practices and performances. Additionally, QR code–accessible videos provide brief demonstrations that illustrate new and complex movements. Offering expert technical pointers and honing in on the secrets to forming successful interpersonal bonds, Kronenberg and Guerra’s firsthand look at this “art form within an art form” will allow dancers in every genre to discover the inner workings of the finest and most memorable partnerships. JENNIFER CARLYNN KRONENBERG is former principal dancer with the Miami City Ballet. She has conducted master classes for Ballet Chicago and Ballet de Monterrey, among other companies. She has written several books on dance, including So, You Want to Be a Ballet Dancer? CARLOS MIGUEL GUERRA is former principal dancer for the Miami City Ballet and studied with Fernando Alonso in Cuba, Ivan Nagy in Chile, and Edward Villella in Miami.

Backroads of Paradise A Journey to Rediscover Old Florida

CATHY SALUSTRI 5,000 miles of past, present, and future in a road trip to explore it all “A handy road companion for any tourist, newcomer, or longtime Floridian who wants to get off the beaten path and travel back in time.”—Bobby Braddock, Country Music Hall of Fame songwriter “In staccato bursts of frenzy and passion, Salustri has written a modern love story affirming her tangled relationship with the Sunshine State.

In the 1930s, the Federal Writers’ Project paid Stetson Kennedy and Zora Neale Hurston, along with other lesser-known writers, to create driving tours of Florida. The FWP and the State of Florida jointly published the results as Florida: A Guide to the Southernmost State. In Backroads of Paradise, Cathy Salustri retraces the routes these writers traveled, bringing a modern eye to the historic tours. She guides readers through forgotten and unknown corners of the state as well as some more familiar haunts. These journeys are interlaced with nuggets of history, environmental debates about Florida’s future, and a narrative that combines humor with a strong affection for an oft-maligned state. Today, Salustri urges, tourists need a new nudge—to get off the interstates or away from Disney in order to discover the real Florida. Her travel narrative, following what are now backroads and scenic routes, guides armchair travelers and road warriors alike to historic sites, natural wonders, and notable man-made attractions—comparing the past views with the present landscape and commenting on greater or lesser changes along the way. CATHY SALUSTRI is the arts and entertainment editor at Creative Loafing Tampa.

“A wonderful zinger of a book. Never before have the literary traditions of the Conch Republic been mined for such gold nugget anecdotes.” —Douglas Brinkley Mile Marker Zero tells the story of how a league of great American writers and artists found their identities in Key West and maintained their friendships over the decades, despite oceans of booze and boatloads of pot, through serial marriages and sexual escapades, in that dangerous paradise. Here are true tales of a generation that invented, reinvented, and found itself at the unending cocktail party at the end—and the beginning—of America’s highway. WILLIAM MCKEEN is the author or editor of many books, including Homegrown in Florida, Outlaw Journalist: The Life and Times of Hunter S.

The Seminole Wars

Saving Florida

America’s Longest Indian Conflict

Women’s Fight for the Environment in the Twentieth Century

JOHN MISSALL and MARY LOU MISSALL “Covers the events, issues and costs of all three Indian wars fought during the country’s first aggressive territorial expansion.” —Publishers Weekly “The Missalls . . . describe what it was like to live and fight in pioneer Florida.” —Tampa Tribune

“The best introduction to its topic in print.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Fascinating and informative.”—Journal of Southern History The Seminole Wars were the longest, bloodiest, and most costly of all the Indian wars fought by this nation. Although fought in Florida, the wars were a major concern to the nation as a whole. Providing a comprehensive overview of all three wars, Seminole War authorities John and Mary Lou Missall examine not only the wars that were fought between 1817 and 1858 but also the events leading up to them and their place in American history. Employing extensive research that makes use of diaries, military reports, and archival newspapers, they shed new light on the relationship among the wars, the issue of slavery, prevalent attitudes toward Native Americans, and the quest for national security.

“[A] valuable book.” —American Historical Review “Poole’s chapters open with arresting stories that evoke Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. . . . Highlights how numerous women contributed significantly to improving, conserving, and protecting Florida’s abundant natural resources.” —Environmental History “Poole also shines the spotlight on less familiar figures, women who fought tirelessly for clean air and clean water, who led efforts to beautify the cities and conserve the native forests, and who pushed for and were instrumental in establishing the first state park and the first national wildlife refuge.”—Choice


“A valuable and interesting book on a major period in the development of the Sunshine State. In a saga filled with double-dealings and atrocities, neither the Americans nor the Seminoles come through these pages as villains but rather human beings caught in conflicts with no happy endings.”—Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel


“Gives long-overdue recognition to the women who shaped the state’s environmental movement and saved Florida’s water, land, and quality of life from worse destruction.” —Cynthia Barnett, author of Blue Revolution: Unmaking America’s Water Crisis “Highlights the overlooked role of women in Florida’s environmental leadership. This is an exciting, important book.” —Buddy MacKay, former governor of Florida “A brilliant exposition of the varied types of talent it takes to fight the battles, wars and votes which must be undertaken if even a fraction of Florida’s heritage is to be saved.” —Victoria Tschinkel, vice chairperson, 1000 Friends of Florida “Shows how passionate, strong minded, independent women did what was necessary to change the hearts and minds of policy makers to keep our air and water healthy.” —Clay Henderson, former president, Florida Audubon Society

Florida’s Minority Trailblazers

Travels on the St. Johns River

The Men and Women Who Changed the Face of Florida Government


SUSAN A. MACMANUS with TYLER MYERS and LAUREN KAY “Saves a piece of Florida political history by narrating the personal stories of the state’s ‘minority trailblazers’ from the civil rights movement to the present day.” —Richard E. Foglesong, author of Immigrant Prince: Mel Martinez and the American Dream “Captures Florida’s ongoing political transition from a ‘yellow dog,’ lily-white state to one where diversity is beginning to make an impact on Florida politics.”—Doug Lyons, former senior editorial writer, South Florida Sun-Sentinel Once one of the South’s poorest and least populated states, Florida experienced a population surge during the 1960s that diversified the state and transformed it into a microcosm of the nation, but discrimination remained pervasive. With the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965, the opportunity to participate in government was finally open to previously silenced voices. Drawing primarily from personal interviews, Susan MacManus recounts the stories of fifty-one trailblazers—the first minority men and women, both Democrat and Republican—who were elected or appointed to state legislative, executive, and judicial offices and to Congress since the 1960s. She reveals what drove these leaders to enter office, how they ran their campaigns, what rewards each found during their terms, and what advice they would share with aspiring politicians. What emerges is an in-depth rendering of personal struggles—guided by opportunity, ambition, and idealism—that have made Florida the vibrant, diverse state it is today. SUSAN A. MACMANUS is Distinguished University Professor in the Department of Government and International Affairs at the University of South Florida and the coauthor of Politics in Florida and Politics in States and Communities.

Edited by THOMAS HALLOCK and RICHARD FRANZ “Bringing together descriptions and illustrations of the St. Johns River and its characteristic flora and fauna from the golden age of natural history exploration, this book will be useful to both Bartram scholars and amateur naturalists.”—Timothy Sweet, author of American Georgics: Economy and Environment in American Literature, 1580–1864 In 1765 the father and son naturalists John and William Bartram first explored the natural wonders of the St. Johns River Valley in Florida. Traversing a landscape virtually unknown at the time, one that was subtropical in many ways and then a British territory, they collected plants and made extensive observations of local animal life, geography, ecology, and native cultures of this essentially uncharted region. The Bartrams chronicled their adventures and, in doing so, helped provide the world with an intimate look at La Florida. Travels on the St. Johns River presents writings by these pioneering naturalists, including selections from John Bartram’s Diary, family correspondence, and William’s description of the St. Johns River Valley from his celebrated Travels. It also provides valuable editorial notes and a modern record of the flora and fauna they once encountered, allowing readers to see the land through the explorers’ eyes. This volume helps us rediscover the Bartrams’ history, their findings, and their Florida—as well as the Florida of today.

Sea Level Rise in Florida The Final Mission Science, Impacts, and Options

Preserving NASA’s Apollo Sites



“A scientifically credible and highly readable account of what is likely the greatest threat to Florida’s environment, economy, and culture over the coming decades.”—Reed F. Noss, author of Forgotten Grasslands of the South

“An excellent overview of artifacts and sites in both terrestrial and extra-terrestrial environments.”—P. J. Capelotti, author of The Human Archaeology of Space

“Every Floridian should read this book.”—Orrin H. Pilkey, coauthor of Global Climate Change: A Primer Sea levels are rising—globally and in Florida. Climatologists, geologists, oceanographers, and the overwhelming majority of the scientific community expect a continuation of this trend for centuries to come. While Florida’s natural history indicates that there is nothing new about the changing elevation of the sea, what is new—and alarming—is the combination of the rising seas and the ever-growing, immobile human infrastructure near the coasts: high-rise condos, suburban developments, tourist meccas, and international metropolises. The stakes are particularly high in Florida, where much of the landscape is already topographically low and underlain by permeable limestone. Modern-day sea level rise poses unprecedented challenges for sustainability, urban planning, and political action. Sea Level Rise in Florida offers an in-depth examination of the rise and fall of sea levels in the past and the science behind the current data. The authors also discuss ongoing and potential consequences for natural marine and coastal systems and how we can begin to plan strategically for the inevitable changes. ALBERT C.

“Artfully blends archaeology and historic preservation into a history of the Cold War space race. A compelling argument for preserving America’s twentiethcentury space heritage.”—Todd A. Hanson, author of The Archaeology of the Cold War Deep within the rugged mountains of Southern California and rising above the desert landscape of Southern New Mexico are the oncemajestic historic rocket test stands and facilities that helped send humans to the moon for the first time in 1969. Many of these are abandoned. Countless others across the American landscape and on the lunar surface have become ruins, silent and largely forgotten. The Final Mission explores the critical sites linked to space exploration and calls for their urgent preservation. The authors provide fascinating background information on significant sites and discuss ways to preserve and protect the buildings and artifacts that remain for future generations. These facilities helped refine the Saturn V rocket engines that carried the Apollo 11 astronauts to the moon and developed the critical equipment that made it possible for humans to survive and return safely to Earth. This book gives these sites the recognition they have long been due for their roles in the landmark Apollo missions that blazed at the height of the twentieth-century space race.

Cuban Art in the Twentieth Century



Cultural Identity and the International Avant Garde

Identification and Geographical Distribution of the Mosquitoes of North America, North of Mexico

Modern Cuban art emerged in Havana in 1927 and matured during the next two decades. Its inception is mainly defined by a rupture with academic art, the appropriation of European avant-garde formal inventions, and the subjective symbolization of national ethos. In the 1940s a new generation of artists expanded their artistic sources to include popular art and explored new symbols of collective identity. By the 1950s a third generation of modernist artists abandoned figuration, the representation of Cuban themes, and turned to abstraction and introspection. Cuban Art in the Twentieth Century is an historical progression of works by important artists from a complex modern movement described by several discrete periods: Colonial, Early Republic, First Generation, Second Generation, Third Generation, Late Modern, and Contemporary Periods. The Cuban modern art movement consists of a loose group of artists, divided into generations, who counted on the moral support of an intellectual elite and who had minimal economic help from the private and public sectors. In spite of a fragile infrastructure, this art movement, along with similar movements in literature and music, played a major role in defining Cuban culture in the twentieth century. SEGUNDO J. FERNANDEZ is an art collector and guest curator. JUAN A. MARTÍNEZ is professor emeritus of art and art history at Florida International University and the author of several books, including Cuban Art and National Identity: The Vanguardia Painters, 1927–1950. PAUL NIELL is assistant professor in art history at Florida State University.

RICHARD F. DARSIE JR. and RONALD A. WARD “This is the identification manual for North American mosquitoes.”—Choice “The essential resource for anyone concerned with mosquito control or biology.”—American Reference Books Annual “A valuable resource. . . . This book is the collective product of two very competent scientists.” —Journal of Medical Entomology “For the dedicated mosquito worshipper! This book is undoubtedly a must and with its beautifully illustrated keys sets a high standard to follow.”—Parasitology Because of the occurrence of mosquito-borne diseases and the widespread distribution of mosquitoes as pests to humans, professionals must know how to identify them. With its wealth of information, this book is the only one of its kind available for specialists working on mosquito-borne diseases and in mosquito control units, and for introductory and advanced students who study entomology. This book updates the successful guide to North American mosquitoes published by the American Mosquito Control Association in 1981. It includes 12 new species that have since been added to the North American mosquito fauna, revised distribution maps of all species, and revised and completely illustrated identification keys for the adult females and fourth instar larvae of all 174 species and subspecies known to occur in North America, north of Mexico. Including 9 exotic species that have been introduced and today successfully thrive in North America, this book’s usefulness to mosquito control programs cannot be overestimated. RICHARD F. DARSIE JR. (1915–2014) was a research entomologist at the Florida Medical Entomology Laboratory, University of Florida. RONALD A. WARD was a medical entomologist at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research in Washington, D.C., before his retirement.

The Silencing of Ruby McCollum

Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home

Racial Violence in Florida


“Highly recommended.”—Choice “Evans uses the trial, which was covered by novelist Zora Neale Nurston, to examine the institutionalized silence that surrounded black women in the 1950s South.”—Ms. Magazine “Bigger-than-life (and long-dead) characters . . . inhabit this fascinating story like haunted-house ghosts.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel “An intriguing and compelling study of the race, gender, and class dynamics of segregated small-town Florida at midcentury.”—Tampa Bay History “Listening to the silences and looking for the ellipses, Evans reveals the powerful memory work accomplished by southerners’ reticence or refusal to speak—by their reluctance to broach those volatile, off-limits subjects understood to be simply not discussed.”—H-Net “Effectively shows how patriarchy and white supremacy . . . constructed a story and silenced McCollum and others to protect their community and its history.”—The Historian “A tour de force.”—Florida Historical Quarterly

Florida Book Awards, Bronze Medal for Florida Nonfiction Florida Historical Society Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Award “Characterizes the level of terror in Florida as among the worst in the South. . . . An important insight of Democracy Abroad, Lynching at Home is the longterm psychological damage suffered by blacks who frequently experienced white violence during the Jim Crow era.”—Florida Times-Union


“An account of how the murder in Live Oak, Florida, of a powerful white man, physician, and politician, C. LeRoy Adams, by an African American housewife, Ruby McCollum, and the subsequent trial threatened to reveal the underbelly of southern society, all the dirty little and big secrets of the community and the region. . . . A superb study.”—Journal of Southern History


“Hobbs stresses that lynchings continued in Florida much longer than almost anywhere else in the country. . . . A welcome and valuable contribution to the growing field of lynching and mob violence studies.”—H-Net “Hobbs unearths four lynchings that are critical to the understanding of the origins of civil rights in Florida. The oral histories from the victims’ families and those in the communities make this a valuable contribution to African American, Florida, and civil rights history.”—Derrick E. White, author of The Challenge of Blacknesss Investigating a dark period of Florida history and focusing on a rash of anti-black violence that took place during the 1940s, Tameka Hobbs explores the reasons why lynchings continued in Florida when they were starting to wane elsewhere. She contextualizes the murders within the era of World War II, contrasting the desire of the United States to broadcast the benefits of its democracy abroad while at home it struggled to provide legal protection to its African American citizens.

Conservative Bias How Jesse Helms Pioneered the Rise of Right-Wing Media and Realigned the Republican Party

BRYAN HARDIN THRIFT “An engrossing book. Highly recommended.”—Choice


“Goes beyond the typical stereotypes of southern bigots to make Helm’s footprint on the conservative movement large.”—Journal of American History “Thrift has examined the nearly 3,000 Helms editorials broadcast between 1960 and 1972, showing just how prescient Helms was in combining traditional right-wing economics with racism and a defensive social conservatism that would underlie much of the new conservatism in southern and American politics.”—American Historical Review “Readers . . . will enjoy Thrift’s compelling description of how Jesse Helms refined aspects of right-wing media so familiar today. . . . A concise, clear, and clever narrative.”—Journal of American Studies “An important book.”—Southern Historian “A vital addition to the literature on mid-twentieth-century conservatism, southern political change, and the growth of conservative media.”—Journal of Southern History “Thrift shows that Helms was not merely a right-wing demagogue but rather a brilliant media mastermind who built a national movement from a little television soundstage in Raleigh.”—Neil J. Young, Princeton University “The first comprehensive study of Jesse Helms’s long career as a conservative journalist and television ideologue prior to his long tenure as a U.S. senator from North Carolina.” —William A.

The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer JAMES DEMPSEY “Makes a persuasive case for placing Thayer at the centre of modernism.”—London Review of Books “[A] sympathetic and pleasing study of this often overlooked patron and critic. . . . Provides the first detailed account of Thayer’s life and of his important but conflicted support of modern writers and artists at the Dial. . . . Enthralling and convincing.” —Wall Street Journal “For nearly a century, Scofield Thayer has remained a somewhat shadowy figure in the history of modernism. But James Dempsey has at last illuminated Thayer’s passionate, intense, and agonizing story.”—Barry Ahearn, editor of The Correspondence of William Carlos Williams and Louis Zukofsky “As no other book has done before, The Tortured Life of Scofield Thayer places Thayer’s contribution to modernism as editor of The Dial in the context of his personal struggles to forge a new aesthetic and to understand his own psychology and the life of his times.”—Michael Webster, author of Reading Visual Poetry after Futurism This book looks beyond the public figure best known for publishing the work of William Butler Yeats, T. S. Eliot, William Carlos Williams, E. E. Cummings, and Marianne Moore to reveal a paradoxical man fraught with indecisions and insatiable appetites, and deeply conflicted about the artistic movement to which he was benefactor and patron. The story of Scofield Thayer’s unmoored and peripatetic life, which in many ways mirrored the cosmopolitan rootlessness of modernism, has never been fully told until now. JAMES DEMPSEY, instructor at the Worcester Polytechnic Institute, is the author of The Court Poetry of Chaucer, Zakary’s Zombies, and Murphy’s American Dream.

Key West Hemingway

By Avon River

A Reassessment


Edited by KIRK CURNUTT and GAIL D. SINCLAIR “A colorful book. . . . Impresses instantly.”—Hemingway Review “Provide[s] an examination of Hemingway’s life and writings during his time in Key West in order to show that his work there has been undervalued and may, in fact, be some of his most interesting.”—Choice

“No other work has focused so sharply and revealed so clearly the vitality of Hemingway’s time in Key West. With keen scrutiny and brilliance, these fresh and readable essays rediscover and give us Hemingway’s multifaceted American literary voices.” —Linda Patterson Miller, editor of Letters from the Lost Generation “This impressive and cohesive collection of essays on Hemingway’s Key West works and days puts into proper critical and biographical perspective one of the least understood yet most productive periods in his life. Husband, lover, father, son, fisherman, political activist, defender of the vets, essayist, and crafter of fiction—it’s all here, close-up and wide-angle, the American Hemingway of 1928–1940, in all his facets, the rough diamond in the Florida sun.”—Allen Josephs, author of Ritual and Sacrifice in the Corrida

KIRK CURNUTT, professor and chair of English at Troy University, is the author of A Historical Guide to F. Scott Fitzgerald and The Critical Response to Gertrude Stein. GAIL D. SINCLAIR is scholar-in-residence and executive director of the Winter Park Institute at Rollins College.

“Highly recommended.” —Choice “Vetter’s new introduction, notes and glossary provide an invaluable guide to the writer’s historical and literary references without miring the text in the kind of pedantry and dry intellectualism its author so disliked.”—Times Literary Supplement “Superb. Vetter’s incisive introduction offers one of the first approaches to theorizing women’s late modernist literary production as advancing specifically hybrid works located at the juncture of personal, national, and nationalist concerns.”—Cynthia Hogue, coeditor of The Sword Went Out to Sea


“Reassess[es] the literary value of Hemingway’s neglected essays and short fiction within the writer’s legacy.”—Florida Historical Quarterly


“This edition opens up new understandings of H.D. as she meditates, postwar, on the inner life of Shakespeare and on the women missing from his plays. A beautiful and thoughtful book.”—Jane Augustine, editor of The Gift and The Mystery By Avon River is a hybrid volume of poetry about The Tempest and prose about Shakespeare and his contemporaries, written by H.D. after she made a pilgrimage to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace. In this annotated edition, Lara Vetter argues that the volume represented a turning point in H.D.’s career, a major shift from lyric poetry to the experimental forms of writing that would dominate her later works. Featuring a tour-de-force introduction and extensive explanatory notes, this is the first edition of the work to appear since its original publication in 1949. H.D. (born Hilda Doolittle, 1886–1961) was an American expatriate writer whose work exerted enormous influence on modernist poetry and prose. LARA VETTER is associate professor of English at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and author of Modernist Writings and Religio-scientific Discourse: H.D., Loy, and Toomer.

Setting the Table Ceramics, Dining, and Cultural Exchange in Andalucía and La Florida

KATHRYN L. NESS “A long-needed comparison between Spanish and Spanish colonial sites, showing how both inform us about Spanish identity at home and abroad.”—Charles R. Ewen, coauthor of Hernando de Soto among the Apalachee “The first systematic attempt to consider the eighteenth-century archaeological record in Spain and measure it against the decadeslong research in St. Augustine. It is long overdue and valuable.” —Russell K. Skowronek, coauthor of Ceramic Production in Early Hispanic California: Craft, Economy, and Trade on the Frontier of New Spain Examining ceramics from eighteenth-century household sites in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, and St. Augustine, Florida, Setting the Table opens up new interpretations of cultural exchange and identity in the early modern Spanish empire. To analyze and compare tableware from these far-removed locations, Kathryn Ness proposes and employs a new vessel-based classification system to bridge the differences between existing systems. Her findings show that on both sides of the Atlantic, similar major changes to dining practices and foodways developed at almost the same time. Ness argues that early modern people were creating and expressing a distinct Spanish-American identity that retained some traditions from the home country while welcoming new ideas from an increasingly global network.

Archaeologies of Slavery and Freedom in the Caribbean Exploring the Spaces in Between

Edited by LYNSEY A. BATES, JOHN M. CHENOWETH, and JAMES A. DELLE “We are reminded that the Caribbean was a more complicated place than we usually imagine.” —Kenneth G. Kelly, coeditor of French Colonial Archaeology in the Southeast and Caribbean Caribbean plantations and the forces that shaped them—slavery, sugar, capitalism, and the tropical, sometimes deadly environment— have been studied extensively. This volume turns the focus to the places and times where the rules of the plantation system did not always apply, including the interstitial spaces that linked enslaved Africans with their neighbors at other plantations. The essays also explore the lives of “poor whites,” Afro-descendant members of military garrisons, and free people of color, demonstrating that binary models of black slaves and white planters do not fully encompass the diversity of identities before and after emancipation. Employing innovative research tools and integrating data from Dominica, St. Lucia, the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Barbados, Nevis, Montserrat, and the British Virgin Islands, these essays offer a deeper understanding of the complex world within and beyond the sprawling sugar estates. LYNSEY A. BATES is an archaeological analyst for the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS). JOHN M.

UF PRESS | FLORIDA MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY RIPLEY P. BULLEN SERIES Cuban Archaeology in the Caribbean Edited by IVAN ROKSANDIC “Changes the conversation about Cuban archaeology as a whole, presenting groundbreaking data and interpretations that will be useful for prehistoric and historical archaeologists working the region.”—Samuel M. Wilson, author of The Archaeology of the Caribbean In this volume, Ivan Roksandic and an international team of researchers trace population movement throughout the Caribbean, specifically to Cuba. Through analysis of early agriculture, burial customs, dental modification, pottery production, dietary patterns, and more, they present a new theory of mainland migration to Cuba and the Greater Antilles. The researchers tackle the complex early history of the region, deciphering patterns of migration, the interactions between island inhabitants, and the fate of indigenous groups after European contact. The multidisciplinary approach includes contributions from archaeology, physical anthropology, environmental archaeology, paleobotany, linguistics, and ethnohistory. Adding to ongoing debates concerning migration and colonization, this volume examines the importance of landscape and seascape in shaping human experience; the role that contact and interaction between different groups play in building identity; and the contribution of native groups to the biological and cultural identity of post contact and modern societies.

Handbook of Ceramic Animal Symbols in the Ancient Lesser Antilles LAWRENCE WALDRON “A true Amerindian bestiary. Illustrates the profound relationship between the Antillean zoomorphic iconology and the ideas, mythic traditions, and ideology behind them.”—Arie Boomert, coauthor of The 1946 and 1953 Yale University Excavations in Trinidad: Vol. #92 The importance of animals as surrogates and signifiers in preColumbian art places them at the foundation of symbolic language and visual culture throughout much of the ancient Americas. However, with no comprehensive iconographic study of the ceramics of the Lesser Antilles, it has fallen to archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, linguists, and art historians to independently decipher the many species and symbols. In this volume, Lawrence Waldron focuses on the cultural significance of nearly two dozen animal and bird representations found in Saladoid-era ceramics, surveying zoomorphic iconography in over twenty major collections. He integrates ethnozoology and ethology with traditional narratives and demonstrates that different animal representations dominated on particular islands. Waldron shows how regional disparities may have been politically savvy expressions of cultural distinctions among emergent Caribbean subgroups. The result is a multidisciplinary reference text that will be invaluable to scholars and students seeking an interpretation of visual culture in the archaeological record.

Colonized Bodies, Perspectives on Worlds Transformed the Ancient Maya Toward A Global of Chetumal Bay Bioarchaeology of Contact and Colonialism

Edited by MELISSA S. MURPHY and HAAGEN D. KLAUS “Breaks new ground regarding how to think about colonial encounters in innovative ways that pay attention to a wide range of issues from health and demography to identity formations and adaptation.”—Debra L. Martin, coeditor of The Bioarchaeology of Violence Colonized Bodies, Worlds Transformed represents a new generation of contact and colonialism studies, expanding upon a traditional focus on the health of conquered peoples toward how extraordinary biological and political transformations are incorporated into the human body, reflecting behavior, identity, and adaptation. These globally diverse case studies demonstrate that the effects of conquest reach farther than was ever thought before—to both the colonized and the colonizers. Cultural exchange occurred between both groups, transforming social identities, foodways, and social structures at points of contact and beyond. Contributors to this volume analyze skeletal remains and burial patterns from never-before-studied regions in the Americas to the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, resulting in a new synthesis of historical archaeology and bioarchaeology. MELISSA S. MURPHY, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Wyoming, is coeditor of Enduring Conquests: Rethinking the Archaeology of Resistance to Spanish Colonialism in the Americas. HAAGEN D.

Edited by DEBRA S. WALKER “Brings novel, synthetic insight to understanding a region that was a hub of waterborne trade and an important locus of production for some of the Maya’s most valued crops.” —Cynthia Robin, author of Everyday Life Matters: Maya Farmers at Chan The ancient Maya invested prodigious amounts of labor in the construction of road systems for communication and trade, yet recent discoveries surrounding Chetumal Bay reveal an alternative and extensive network of riverine and maritime waterways. Focusing on sites ringing the bay such as Cerro Maya, Oxtankah, and Santa Rita Corozal, the contributors to this volume explore how the bay and its feeder rivers affected all aspects of Maya culture from settlement, food production, and the production and use of special goods to political relationships and social organization. Besides being a nexus for long distance exchange in valuable materials such as jade and obsidian, the region was recognized for its high quality agricultural produce, including chocolate, achiote, vanilla, local fruits, honey, and salt, and for its rich marine environment. The Maya living on the fringes of the bay perceived the entire region as a single resource procurement zone. Waterborne trade brought the world to them, providing a wider horizon than would have been available to inland cities dependent only on Maya roads for news of the world. DEBRA S. WALKER is a research curator at the Florida Museum of Natural History. A volume in the series Maya Studies, edited by Diane Z. Chase and Arlen F. Chase

The Casma City of El Purgatorio Ancient Urbanism in the Andes

MELISSA VOGEL “Defines the Casma culture and demonstrates its importance in late Andean prehistory for the north coast of Peru. Vogel’s pioneering work at El Purgatorio sets the stage for anticipated future studies.”—Thomas Pozorski, University of Texas-Pan American The Casma state, which flourished on the north coast of Peru in the centuries before European contact, is an important and vastly understudied ancient culture. Its capital city, El Purgatorio, was inhabited from ca. 700–1400 AD. The rise and fall of El Purgatorio spans a period of dynamic transition in Andean history but has rarely been mentioned in previous research. Melissa Vogel investigates this extensive, monumental urban site in The Casma City of El Purgatorio. Using the city’s architecture and spatial organization, its rituals, religion, and mortuary practices, its political economy, and other material evidence, she describes the people who lived there. A culmination of Vogel’s sixteen-year study of the Casma culture, this book demonstrates how ancient cities help us understand the development and collapse of complex societies.

Dressing the Part

Dance and Gender An Evidence-Based Approach

Ethnicity, Race, and Commodities

Power, Dress, Gender, and Representation in the Pre-Columbian Americas



“Creatively drawing on archaeological, architectural, and documentary evidence, this book explores the dynamic strategies employed by German Americans and African Americans in the nineteenthcentury American frontier to navigate the exclusionary, exploitative, and insidious forces of the emerging world capitalist system.” —Frederick H. Smith, author of The Archaeology of Alcohol and Drinking Using two case studies from different frontier regions in nineteenth-century America, this book reveals how marginalized ethnic and racial communities resisted the attempts of governing officials and investors to control them through capitalist economic and government frameworks. In backcountry Virginia, immigrants from Germany opted to purchase ceramic wares produced by their own local communities instead of buying manufactured goods supplied by urban centers like Washington, D.C. In Illinois, free African Americans in the town of New Philadelphia worked to obtain land and produce agricultural commodities, defying structural racism that was meant to channel resources and economic value away from them. These small choices and actions had large ripple effects. Looking at the economic systems of these regions in relation to transatlantic and global factors, Christopher Fennell offers rare insight into the development of America’s consumer economy.

Edited by WENDY OLIVER and DOUG RISNER “Few volumes tackle the issue of gender and dance with such currency. A work of high quality, thorough in its composition, impeccable in its rigor, and far-reaching in its approach.”—Julie Kerr-Berry, Minnesota State University, Mankato

“From Olmec costume switching to Peruvian bundle burials we see which types of power were gendered, which symbols or motifs were power filled, and how these symbols were borne by the living and the dead. This collection showcases a mature gendered archaeology.”—Cheryl Claassen, author of Beliefs and Rituals in Archaic Eastern North America: An Interpretive Guide Costume can reveal a wealth of information about an individual’s identity within society. Dressing the Part looks at the ways individuals in the ancient Americas used clothing, hairstyle, and personal ornaments to express status and power, gender identity, and group affiliations, even from the grave. While most gender studies of Pre-Columbian societies focus on women, these essays also foreground men and persons of multiple or ambiguous gender. Dressing the Part examines how individual identity played a role in larger schemes of social relationship in the ancient Americas. Employing a variety of theories and methodologies from art history, anthropology, ethnography, semiotics, and material science, contributors to this volume explore not only how power is gendered or related to gender but also how the dynamics between power and gender are negotiated through costume. SARAHH E. M. SCHER is a visiting lecturer in art history at Salem State University. BILLIE J. A. FOLLENSBEE is professor of art history and museum studies program coordinator at Missouri State University.

“Generous with data, this collection of accessible research will inspire a variety of emotions from anger to fascination, prompting us to question our own actions and the shape of the future of dance.”—Barbara Bashaw, Rutgers University Driven by facts and hard data, this volume reveals how gender dynamics affect the lives of dancers, choreographers, directors, students, educators, and others who are involved in the world of dance. It unpacks real issues that matter—not just to dance communities but also to broader societal trends in the West. In these studies, dancers and dance scholars take readers into classrooms, rehearsals, performances, festivals, competitions, college dance departments, and company administrations. They ask incisive questions and analyze data to learn about the role of gender in attitudes, stereotypes, pedagogy, funding inequities, representation, casting, and body image. Dance is an important part of our larger cultural fabric, and this volume adds powerful findings to today’s discussions about living in a gendered society.

Painting in a State of Exception

Who Owns Haiti?

New Figuration in Argentina, 1960–1965


PATRICK FRANK “Chronicles an important and littleknown episode in the history of Argentine art and thoughtfully locates the movement within the complex cultural and political landscape of its time.” —Abigail McEwen, University of Maryland, College Park Although one of Latin America’s most significant postwar art movements, Nueva Figueración has long been overlooked in studies of modern art. In this first comprehensive examination of the movement, Patrick Frank explores the work of four artists at its heart—Ernesto Deira, Rómulo Macció, Luis Felipe Noé, and Jorge de la Vega—to demonstrate the importance of their work in the transnational development of modern art. These Argentinian painters built on postwar expressionism by working with unprecedented urgency and abandon, combining spontaneous techniques of abstraction with figural subjects. Their works exercised a creative freedom that broke taboos about the role of the artist in society. To show how their works reflect the environment in which they were created, Frank combines analyses of each artist’s paintings with discussions of their social, political, and artistic contexts while revealing their connections to literature, popular culture, and film. PATRICK FRANK is the author of various books, including Los Artistas del Pueblo: Prints and Workers’ Culture in Buenos Aires, 1917–1935 and Posada’s Broadsheets: Mexican Popular Imagery, 1890–1910.

People, Power, and Sovereignty

“Directly asks the provocative question of ownership and Haitian sovereignty within the post-earthquake moment—an unstable period in which ideas on (re)development, humanitarianism, globalization, militarism, self-determination, and security converge.”—Millery Polyné, author of From Douglass to Duvalier: U.S. African Americans, Haiti, and Pan Americanism, 1870–1964 Although Haiti established its independence in 1804, external actors such as the United States, the United Nations, and non-profits have wielded considerable influence for the past decade. Who Owns Haiti? explores the role of international actors in the country’s sovereign affairs while highlighting the ways in which Haitians continually enact their own independence on economic, political, and cultural levels. Contributing authors contemplate Haiti’s sovereign roots from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, including political science, anthropology, history, economics, and development studies. Ultimately, they examine how foreign actors encroach on Haitian autonomy and shape—or fail to shape—Haiti’s fortunes, and how Haitian institutions, grassroots organizations, and individuals respond to and resist this influence.

SCOTT FREEMAN is professorial lecturer at the School of International Service at American University.

Anthology of Spanish American Thought and Culture Edited by JORGE AGUILAR MORA, JOSEFA SALMÓN, and BARBARA C. EWELL “The texts stitch past and present in a tapestry that in its warp and weft maps out the vastness of continental cultures.”—Ileana Rodríguez, author of Liberalism at Its Limits: Crime and Terror in the Latin American Cultural Text This anthology brings together more than sixty primary texts to offer an ambitious introduction to Spanish American thought and culture. Myths, poetry, memoirs, manifestos, and fiction are translated from Spanish to English, some for the first time. From disciplines including history, politics, anthropology, religion, literature, art, and architecture and written by famous historical figures such as Simón Bolívar, José Martí, and Che Guevara alongside lesser-known individuals, the texts are united by a shared quest for cultural identity. Representing many different moments in the complex history of an extraordinary region, the key question the texts confront is “Who are we?” The answers are often surprising. JORGE AGUILAR MORA is professor emeritus of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Maryland. His many books include Sueños de la razón: 1799 y 1800 Umbrales del siglo XIX. JOSEFA SALMÓN, Rev. Guy Lemieux Distinguished Professor of Spanish and Latin American Studies at Loyola University, is the author or editor of several books, including El espejo indígena: El discurso indigenista en Bolivia 1900–1956. BARBARA C. EWELL, the Dorothy Harrell Brown Professor of English at Loyola University, is the author of Kate Chopin and coeditor of Southern Local Color: Stories of Region, Race, and Gender and other works.

Edith Wharton and Cosmopolitanism

Virginia Woolf’s Modernist Path

This Business of Words


Her Middle Diaries and the Diaries She Read

Reassessing Anne Sexton

“These energizing, excellent essays address the international scope of Wharton’s writing and contribute to the growing fields of transatlantic, hemispheric, and global studies.” —Carol J. Singley, author of A Historical Guide to Edith Wharton

“Lounsberry is the only scholar to treat Woolf’s diaries for themselves—as works of art, as expressions of her private self, and as testing grounds for her experiments in novelwriting.”—Panthea Reid, author of Tillie Olsen: One Woman, Many Riddles

“Readers will emerge with a new respect for Wharton’s engagement with the world around her and for her ability to convey her particular vision in her literary works.” —Julie Olin-Ammentorp, author of Edith Wharton’s Writings from the Great War Hailed for her remarkable social and psychological insights into the Gilded Age lives of privileged Americans, Edith Wharton, the first woman to win the Pulitzer Prize, was also a transnational author who cultivated contradictory approaches to identity, difference, and belonging. As literary studies continue to expand beyond nation-based topics, readers are becoming more interested in the international scope of her life and writing. Edith Wharton and Cosmopolitanism shows that Wharton was highly engaged with global issues of her time, due in part to her extensive travel abroad. Examining both her canonical and lesser-known works and including her art historical discoveries, her political writings, and her travel writing, the essays in this volume explore Wharton’s diverse, complex, and sometimes problematic relationship to a cosmopolitan vision. MEREDITH L. GOLDSMITH, professor of English at Ursinus College, is coeditor of Middlebrow Moderns: Popular American Women Writers of the 1920s. EMILY J. ORLANDO, associate professor of English at Fairfield University, is the author of Edith Wharton and the Visual Arts.



“Offers a fascinating alternative form of biography. Lounsberry is particularly skillful in combining close attention to and interpretation of the details of Woolf’s diary with a fluent sense of her life being lived across the years.”—Mark Hussey, author of Virginia Woolf A to Z: A Comprehensive Reference for Students, Teachers, and Common Readers to Her Life, Work, and Critical Reception Praise for Lounsberry's Becoming Virginia Woolf: “Foundational.”—Woolf Studies Annual “[A] vital study.”—Choice In this second volume of her acclaimed study of Virginia Woolf’s diaries, Barbara Lounsberry traces the English writer’s life through the thirteen diaries she kept from 1918 to 1929. During these interwar years, Woolf began penning many of her most famous works, including Mrs. Dalloway, To the Lighthouse, Orlando, and A Room of One’s Own. Lounsberry shows how Woolf’s writing at this time was influenced by other diarists—Anton Chekhov, Katherine Mansfield, Jonathan Swift, and Stendhal among them—and how she continued to use her diaries as a way to experiment with form and her evolving modernist style. 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 The Art of Fact: Contemporary Artists of Nonfiction, and is coeditor of Writing Creative Nonfiction: The Literature of Reality.

“Readers of Sexton’s poetry have been waiting more than twenty years for a collection of essays like this.”—Dawn M. Skorczewski, author of An Accident of Hope: The Therapy Tapes of Anne Sexton “An important collection of new critical views. Draws from a range of critics, as well as poets, to assess why Sexton’s work remains viable, forceful, and beloved.”—Linda Wagner-Martin, author of A History of American Literature: 1950 to the Present Long overshadowed by fellow confessional poets Sylvia Plath and Robert Lowell, Anne Sexton seldom features in literary criticism, despite being one of America’s most influential women writers. Now in this much-needed volume Sexton and her poetry are reassessed for the first time in two decades. With new access to her archives, the scholars and poets featured here consider Sexton’s wide range of literary production: how it shaped her creative process, informs readings of her work, and reveals her efforts to build a successful career without a university education. Notable in presenting Sexton the educator and public figure, This Business of Words also considers her relationships with peers and various media and interprets her strategies for teaching, critiquing poems, and delivering readings. As they revisit their initial encounters with Sexton as readers, writers, and teachers, the contributors to this volume map the influence of her craft on twenty-first-century culture. AMANDA GOLDEN is assistant professor of English at New York Institute of Technology.

Up to Maughty London

The Evolution of the Victorian Illustrated Book

Joyce’s Cultural Capital in the Imperial Metropolis



“Marvelous. Golden documents a remarkable continuity from early nineteenth-century caricatures to realistic portrait-based illustrations to current graphic rewritings of familiar classics.” —Martha Vicinus, author of Intimate Friends

“Fundamentally alters the received wisdom which tends to award Paris a far more central place in the making of Joyce the modernist.” —John McCourt, author of The Years of Bloom: James Joyce in Trieste 1904–1920

“A capacious and synthetic work.” —Peter Betjemann, author of Talking Shop The Victorian illustrated book came into being, flourished, and evolved during the nineteenth century. Catherine Golden offers a new framework for viewing the arc of this vibrant form and surveys the fluidity in styles of illustration in serial instalments, British and American periodicals, adult and children’s literature, and—more recently—graphic novels. Golden examines widely recognized illustrated texts, such as The Pickwick Papers, Oliver Twist, Alice in Wonderland, and Peter Rabbit, and finds new expressions of this traditional genre in present-day graphic novel adaptations of the works of Austen, Dickens, and Trollope, as well as Neo-Victorian graphic novels like The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. She explores the various factors that contributed to the early popularity of the illustrated book—the growth of commodity culture, a rise in literacy, new printing technologies—and how these ultimately created a mass market for new fiction. While existing scholarship on Victorian illustrators largely centers on the Household Edition of Dickens or the realist artists of the “Sixties,” notably Fred Barnard and John Tenniel, this volume examines the lifetime of the Victorian illustrated book. It also discusses how a particular canon has been refashioned and repurposed for new generations of readers.

While there has been extensive research on the effect of Dublin and other European urban centers such as Trieste and Paris on James Joyce and his works, few Joyceans have explored the impact of London on the trajectory of his literary career. In Up to Maughty London, Eleni Loukopoulou offers the first sustained account of Joyce’s engagement with the imperial metropolis. She considers both London’s status as a matrix for political and cultural formations and how the city is imaginatively represented in Joyce’s work. Examining newly discovered or largely neglected material—newspaper and magazine articles, anthology contributions, radio broadcasts, and sound recordings—Loukopoulou also assesses the promotion of Joyce’s work in London’s literary marketplace. London emerges not just as a setting for his writings but as a key cultural and publishing vector for the composition and dissemination of his work. ELENI LOUKOPOULOU is an independent scholar living in London. A volume in the Florida James Joyce series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

CATHERINE J. GOLDEN, professor of English at Skidmore College, is author of several books, including Posting It: The Victorian Revolution in Letter Writing.

The German Joyce

Shaw and Feminisms


On Stage and Off

“A very clear and accessible account of the reception of Joyce’s writings in the German-speaking world. . . . Weninger is to be congratulated on the richness of what he has to show us here about the importance of Joyce as a reference-point for the understanding of modern German literary culture.” —Modern Language Review “The single best source for understanding Joyce’s very special role in German literary culture.”—James Joyce Literary Supplement

“Succeeds admirably . . . in demonstrating the widespread, intricate, and abiding influence of Joyce on German writers.” —English Literature in Transition “Powerfully argues the case for viewing Shakespeare as the most significant English-language author for the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in Germanspeaking lands, and Joyce as filling that role in the twentieth century and down to the present.”—Literary Research ROBERT K. WENINGER, emeritus professor of German and comparative literature at King’s College London, is author or editor of over ten books, including Arno Schmidts Joyce-Rezeption 1957–1970: Ein Beitrag zur Poetik Arno Schmidts, and is a past editor of the Journal of Comparative Critical Studies.

The Politics of Gender in Dominican Literature

“A timely and valuable book.” —Upstage

“A novel and thoughtful analysis of the sexual gender relations and the construction of masculinity in contemporary Dominican culture.”—The Americas

“Focus[es] on the ways in which Shaw’s dramaturgy, real-life involvement with female contemporaries, and enduring legacy for feminist studies anticipate, challenge, and revise our own vexed notions of gender, writing, and power.” —Women’s Studies “A much-welcomed volume.”—SHAW “Endeavours to negotiate the tension between current feminist perspectives and history. . . . Provides nuanced readings of dramatic, biographical, and historical topics to confirm that Shaw studies has yet to exhaust this rich area of research.” —Modern Drama “Will spark lively debate regarding two aspects of Shaw’s life and work which will always remain topical: the sterling complexity of his female characters and his struggle to be a feminist both on stage and off.”—Irish University Review D. A. HADFIELD is lecturer in English at the University of Waterloo. She is the author of Re: Producing Women’s Dramatic History: The Politics of Playing in Toronto.

The Politics of Race in Panama Afro-Hispanic and West Indian Literary Discourses of Contention



“A welcome contribution to studies of literature and race formation in Panama and the greater Caribbean and Latin American region.” —Hispanic American Historical Review “A much-needed intervention. . . . It unsettles the simplistic fallacies that black Panamanian communities are divided by language, assimilation, and religion.” —Small Axe “Synthesizes the work of nine Afro-Hispanic and West Indian authors. . . . A good introduction to the literature of race and integration in Panama.”—Bulletin of Latin American Research By examining the writing of black Panamanian authors, Sonja Watson discusses the cultural, racial, and national tensions that prevent two different cultural groups from forging a shared Afro-Panamanian identity, ultimately revealing why ethnically diverse Afro-descendant populations continue to struggle to create racial unity in nations across Latin America and the Caribbean. SONJA STEPHENSON WATSON is director of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program and associate professor of Spanish at the University of Texas at Arlington.

Maya and Catholic Cultures in Crisis

Islam and the Americas


Edited by AISHA KHAN

“Wide ranging, well informed, and even-handed.” —American Anthropologist

“Early, a former Catholic priest himself, brings to his long account an insider’s eye for the Catholic side of the story and for the personalities and careers of priests who struggled for decades to both reform Catholicism and find ways to empower Mayan Christians.”—Choice “While this book explains what brought about the Maya uprisings in Chiapas and Guatemala and answers questions about the role of the Catholic Church in the development of the uprisings, the heart of the book is about the Mayan quest to live with dignity as Maya in the modern world.”—Christine Gudorf, author of Catholic Social Teaching on Liberation Themes JOHN D. EARLY, professor emeritus of anthropology at Florida Atlantic University, is the author of The Maya and Catholicism and coauthor of several books, including The Xilixana Yanomami of the Amazon.

“A tour de force that underwrites and shifts the petrified image of Islam disseminated by mainstream media.”—Walter D. Mignolo, author of The Darker Side of Western Modernity “Gives us an entirely different picture of Muslims in the Americas than can be found in the established literature. A complex glimpse of the rich diversity and historical depth of Muslim presence in the Caribbean and Latin America.”—Katherine Pratt Ewing, editor of Being and Belonging: Muslim Communities in the United States since 9/11 “Finally a broad-ranging comparative work exploring the roots of Islam in the Americas! Drawing upon fresh historical and ethnographic research, this book asks important questions about the politics of culture and globalization of religion in the modern world.”—Keith E. McNeal, author of Trance and Modernity in the Southern Caribbean AISHA KHAN is associate professor of anthropology at New York University. She is the author of Callaloo Nation: Metaphors of Race and Religious Identity among South Asians in Trinidad.

DEBRA MAJEED “Honest, realistic, practical, and most importantly, non-judgmental.” —AlJumuah Magazine “Embarks on a controversial and nuanced topic. . . . An interesting exploration of African American Muslims living polygyny.”—Journal of International Women’s Studies “Captivating, provocative, and groundbreaking. Taking up the mandate that women’s realities matter, Majeed writes with depth and analytical rigor about a topic we have scarcely begun to understand.”—Amina Wadud, author of Inside the Gender Jihad “Tackles the contours and intimacies of a much practiced but seldom spoken about quasi-marriage that leaves women without legal support. A much-needed text on an extremely sensitive topic. Majeed excavates this terrain with finesse and a deft scholarly hand.”—Aminah Beverly McCloud, coeditor of An Introduction to Islam in the 21st Century “Majeed’s womanist approach is critical, yet balanced enough to include the concerns of women, men, and children, affording readers a broad and vital gaze into the lives of these unconventional households.” —Zain Abdullah, author of Black Mecca “A powerful and long overdue study.” —Shabana Mir, author of Muslim American Women on Campus DEBRA MAJEED is professor of religious studies at Beloit College.

No Jim Crow Church The Origins of South Carolina's Bahá’í Community

LOUIS VENTERS “South Carolina is home to the second largest Bahá’í population in the United States. The community’s fascinating history is told in No Jim Crow Church.” —Huffington Post


“A richly detailed study of the rise of the Bahá’í Faith in South Carolina.”—Paul Harvey, coauthor of The Color of Christ: The Son of God and the Saga of Race in America “A pioneering study of how and why the Bahá’í Faith became the second largest religious community in South Carolina. Carefully researched, the story told here fills a significant gap in our knowledge of South Carolina’s rich and diverse religious history.”—Charles H. Lippy, coauthor of Religion in Contemporary America Members of the Bahá’í Faith in Jim Crow– era South Carolina rejected segregation, broke away from religious orthodoxy, and defied the odds, eventually becoming the state’s largest religious minority. Louis Venters argues that the Bahá’ís in the Palmetto State represented a significant, sustained, spiritually based challenge to the ideology and structures of white male Protestant supremacy, while exploring how the emergence of the Bahá’í Faith in the Deep South played a role in the cultural and structural evolution of the religion. LOUIS VENTERS is associate professor of history at Francis Marion University.

Souvenirs of the Old South Northern Tourism and Southern Mythology

REBECCA CAWOOD MCINTYRE “A richly detailed and finely written book that provides another window onto that everenticing question of southern identity.” —Journal of American History “Provides much insight into the history of American tourism, southern identity, and white northern bourgeois culture. The broad selection of visual resources, alongside McIntyre’s insightful analysis, will prove invaluable for those with a particular interest in African American history and the history of the South.”—Journal of Social History “Succinctly and fluidly makes thematic claims for the development of southern identities. . . . Expertly illustrates black culture’s stereotyping and selling mainly for white benefit and amusement.”—Southern Historian “Challenges scholars to reevaluate the conventional wisdom about the making of an imagined South.”—Journal of Southern History “This study of southern images offers readers a glimpse of how history, culture, race, and class came together in the tourist imagination. If the South emerged from the Civil War a distinctive place, Rebecca McIntyre would remind us that’s because distinctiveness sells.”—Richard Starnes, author of Creating the Land of the Sky REBECCA CAWOOD MCINTYRE is assistant professor of history at Middle Tennessee State University.

Confronting Decline The Political Economy of Deindustrialization in TwentiethCentury New England

DAVID KOISTINEN “[A] finely researched book.”—American Historical Review “Will grow increasingly relevant as globalization and deindustrialization continue to reshape the American economy in the twenty-first century.”—Journal of American History “Challenges commonly held ideas about when and where deindustrialization began, and argues that contemporary responses to industrial decline have a much longer history than scholars have recognized.”—EH-Net “Koistinen traces the post–World War I decline of cotton textiles, triggered largely by low-cost southern competition. . . . He incorporates the voices of business leaders, policymakers, and workers themselves.” —Business History Review “Superbly demonstrates that efforts by public and private groups to counter deindustrialization had little, if any, impact.” —Economic History Review “Reminds us, first, that history continues far beyond the drama of plant closings, and . . . that looking through a longer lens allows us to view important connections that had remained hidden. Second, . . . demonstrates the power of a political economic analysis.”—Journal of American Studies DAVID KOISTINEN is associate professor of history at William Paterson University.

An Incurable Past

Fertile Bonds

Nasser’s Egypt Then and Now

Bedouin Class, Kinship, and Gender in the Bekaa Valley

MÉRIAM N. BELLI “Belli offers something new to the scholarship on modern Egypt. Along with several others who have, against all odds, tried to make sense of the Nasser era, she pushes at the edges of what it is possible for us to know by emphasizing the instability of historical knowledge itself.” —American Historical Review “Demonstrates how Egyptians experience, remember, and revive their past.”—Choice

“A truly extraordinary accomplishment that is thought-provoking, creative, and inspiring. Belli is the first in Middle Eastern studies to examine the cultural history of twentieth-century Egypt through the interactions between education and remembrance.”—Israel Gershoni, author of Confronting Fascism in Egypt “Makes an outstanding contribution to our understandings of Egyptian national identity and memory.”—Nancy L. Stockdale, author of Colonial Encounters among English and Palestinian Women, 1800–1948 MÉRIAM N. BELLI is associate professor of history at the University of Iowa.

“Challenges Western feminist views on gender and reproduction in the Third World, critiques ideas of Marx and Malthus on population and poverty, and argues for a nuanced understanding of fertility and bonding among people everywhere, but especially among the Arab agro-pastoralists at the core of this research.”—Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute “Approaches Bedouin society in Lebanon from a novel angle. Emerging largely from participant observation and semi-structured interviews . . . , it tells a story from an underresearched perspective: women’s views on life, social reproduction, and social relations.” —Anthropos With an average of over nine children per family, older cohorts of Bedouin in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon have one of the highest fertility rates in the world. Many married couples in this pastoral community are close relatives—a socially advantageous practice that reflects the deep value Bedouins place on kinship. To outsiders, such family norms can seem disturbing, even premodern. But Fertile Bonds flips these stereotypes, expanding our understanding of peoples far removed from consolidated government control and providing a broad analytical lens through which to examine demographic divides across the globe. SUZANNE E. JOSEPH is associate professor of anthropology at the American University of Sharjah.

BRETT A. HOUK “The standardized comparative approach used in this work is unique in Maya studies and will be a useful starting point for site-planning studies outside Belize as well. . . . Highly recommended.” —Choice “A solid, workmanlike and badly needed account of Belize’s under-valued sites.” —Antiquity “A useful synthesis and analysis of Maya architecture in Belize. . . . Constantly returns to the builders of these cities and details how their social world is reflected in their permanent structures. . . . Houk writes clearly, with an approachable style.” —Journal of Anthropological Research “Brings together for the first time all the major sites of this part of the Maya world and helps us understand how the ancient Maya planned and built their beautiful cities. It will become both a handbook and a source of ideas for other archaeologists for years to come.”—George J. Bey III, coauthor of Twin Tollans “Any scholar interested in urban planning and the built environment will find this book engaging and useful.”—Lisa J. Lucero, author of Water and Ritual BRETT A.

“Spanning virtually the entire twentieth century and as timely as the outbreak of the 2011 ‘January Revolution,’ this work has much to say about where Egypt has been, who Egyptians are and, ultimately, where they may take their country.” —Joel Gordon, author of Nasser: Hero of the Arab Nation


Ancient Maya Cities of the Eastern Lowlands

Slavery behind the Wall An Archaeology of a Cuban Coffee Plantation



“A significant contribution in Caribbean archaeology. Singleton weaves archaeological and documentary evidence into a compelling narrative of the lives of the enslaved at Santa Ana de Biajacas.”—Patricia Samford, author of Subfloor Pits and the Archaeology of Slavery in Colonial Virginia “Presents results of the first historical archaeology in Cuba by an American archaeologist since the 1950s revolution.” —Leland Ferguson, author of God’s Fields Cuba had the largest slave society of the Spanish colonial empire. At Santa Ana de Biajacas the plantation owner sequestered slaves behind a massive masonry wall. Exploring the unique slave culture that emerged there, Theresa Singleton provides insight into the larger historical context of the African diaspora, global patterns of enslavement, and the development of Cuba as an integral member of the larger Atlantic World. THERESA A. SINGLETON is associate professor of anthropology at Syracuse University and has served as curator for historical archaeology at the Smithsonian Institution. She is the editor of “I, Too, Am America”: Archaeological Studies of AfricanAmerican Life and Archaeology of Slavery and Plantation Life. A volume in the series Cultural Heritage Studies, edited by Paul Shackel

The Archaeology of Smoking and Tobacco GEORGIA L. FOX “Paint[s] an expansive picture of tobacco use in North America. . . . Tells us that tobacco played an important role in every major shift in American life, such as the change from rural farming communities to raw industrial cities.”—American Archaeology “Well-written and accessible. . . . An engaging and lucid book that will be of interest to a broad readership who will be no doubt fascinated by the amazing history of tobacco as well as by how historical archaeologists interpret the past.”—American Anthropologist “Provides important insights that will help historical archaeologists interpret tobaccorelated finds and understand the multiple meanings of a commodity that has burned through the social, political, and economic fabric of the modern world.”—Frederick H. Smith, author of The Archaeology of Alcohol and Drinking “Few artifacts illustrate the American experience as clearly as tobacco. Fox examines how tobacco and smoking reveal broader social life across the face of the planet over a half-millennium.”—Paul Mullins, author of The Archaeology of Consumer Culture GEORGIA L. FOX is professor of anthropology at California State University, Chico. A volume in the series the American Experience in Archaeological Perspective, edited by Michael S. Nassaney

Bioarchaeology and Climate Change A View from South Asian Prehistory

GWEN ROBBINS SCHUG “A conceptually novel bioarchaeological study that dovetails the regional archaeological record and the results of skeletal analysis to explore a topic of global significance.”—American Anthropologist “[An] innovative synthesis of the bioarchaeology of the northern Deccan region and Chalcolithic era skeletons, including a number of new approaches to analysis that are suited to the Indian situation in which few adult burial grounds are known.”—American Journal of Physical Anthropology During the late Holocene (1400–700 B.C.), agricultural communities flourished in a semi-arid region of the Indian subcontinent, until they precipitously collapsed. Gwen Robbins Schug integrates the most recent paleoclimate reconstructions with an innovative analysis of skeletal remains from one of the last abandoned villages to provide a new interpretation of the archaeological record of this period, enriching our understanding of both global climate change and South Asian prehistory. GWEN ROBBINS SCHUG, associate professor of anthropology at Appalachian State University, is coeditor of A Companion to South Asia in the Past. A volume in the series Bioarchaeological Interpretations of the Human Past: Local, Regional, and Global Perspectives, edited by Clark Spencer Larsen
