Music Everywhere The Rock and Roll Roots of a Southern Town Marty Jourard

One small Florida town, many international rock legends “Jourard tells the story so that you feel you are there in the humid clubs, watching history unfold in a time when regional music scenes truly were unique.” —Charles R. Cross, author of Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain “Jourard clearly demonstrates that Gainesville’s contributions are no less vital than those of New York City, Chicago, Memphis, Los Angeles, Seattle, and so many more.”—Marc Eliot, author of To the Limit: The Untold Story of the Eagles When the Beatles launched into fame in 1963, they inspired a generation to pick up an instrument and start a band. Rock and roll took the world by storm, but one small town in particular seemed to pump out prominent musicians and popular bands at factory pace. Many American college towns have their own story to tell when it comes to their rock and roll roots, but Gainesville’s story is unique: dozens of resident musicians launched into national prominence, eight inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and a steady stream of major acts rolling through on a regular basis. Marty Jourard—himself a member of the chart-topping Motels—looks at Gainesville through the mid-1960s and 1970s, delving into individual stories of the musicians, businesses, and promoters that helped foster innovative, professional music in a small north Florida town. From Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to Stephen Stills and the Eagles’ Don Felder and Bernie Leadon, Gainesville cultivated some of the most celebrated musicians and songwriters of the time. Music Everywhere brings to light a key chapter in the history of American rock and roll—a time when music was a way of life and bands popped up by the dozen, some falling by the wayside but others indelibly changing the face of rock and roll. Here is the story of the people, the town, and a culture that nurtured a wellspring of talent.

Color + B&W formats ANNOUNCING

A NEW JOURNAL Bioarchaeology International Edited by Sabrina C. Agarwal and Brenda J. Baker Bioarchaeology International will provide a new outlet for rigorous peer-reviewed publication of substantive articles in the growing field of bioarchaeology, augmenting the book series already published by UPF. The quarterly journal will publish original research articles, brief reports, and invited review essays that are related to the study of archaeological human remains and mortuary sites.

Building on the success of recent collaborations with the University of Florida, the University Press of Florida is pleased to announce the creation of a University of Florida Press imprint. In addition to a new journals program and GATORBYTES, the University of Florida Press imprint will publish books in the RIPLEY P. BULLEN SERIES, edited by Kathleen Deagan, William Keegan, William Marquardt, Elizabeth Benchley, and Vernon “Jim� Knight. Sponsored by the Florida Museum of Natural History, this series is devoted to archaeological and historical study of the southeastern United States and the Caribbean. The University of Florida Press imprint will also publish books in the DAVID A. COFRIN ASIAN ART MANUSCRIPT SERIES, edited by Jason Steuber and Allysa B. Peyton. Funded by the Samuel P. Harn Museum of Art, this series features scholarship on Asian art.

The overarching goal is to publish studies that are contextually and theoretically informed, and explore the human condition and ways in which human remains and their funerary contexts can provide unique insight on variation, behavior, and lifestyle of past people and communities. Submissions from varying scales of analysis (e.g., regional, community, site/sample, individual, structural, cellular or molecular) that focus on theoretical and methodological issues in the field are encouraged.

A Pioneer Son at Sea Fishing Tales of Old Florida Gilbert L. Voss Edited by Robert S. Voss

Tight lines, full nets, and a bygone era “A perfect blend of history, science, and adventure. Allowing his natural storytelling talent to shine through, Voss tells of the waters, inlets, coves, and colorful characters that comprised South Florida in the early twentieth century.” —Janet DeVries, author of Pioneering Palm Beach: The Deweys and the South Florida Frontier “An outstanding piece of Florida fishing history by one of the most famous marine biologists in Florida.”—Gene Shinn, author of Bootstrap Geologist: My Life in Science “A vivid picture of Voss’s early years as a fisherman and outdoorsman prior to his illustrious career as a marine scientist and educator, who passed along volumes of knowledge about the marine environment and its inhabitants to the scientific community.”—Tommy Thompson, author of The Saltwater Angler’s Guide to Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida History/Biography & Autobiography March 176 pp. | 5 x 8 | 23 b/w illus., 2 maps ISBN 978-0-8130-6252-5 | Cloth $19.95

Long before tourism dominated Florida’s coastline, the state was home to dozens of commercial fisheries and ethnically diverse communities of rugged individuals who made their living from the sea. In A Pioneer Son at Sea, a celebrated marine biologist vividly recounts his early experiences fishing both coasts of the peninsula during the Great Depression and World War II. Here are vanished scenes from old Florida: gill-netting for mackerel off Jupiter, the early days of charterboat fishing for sailfish out of Stuart and Boynton, the snapper fleet at Carrabelle, sponge-diving at Tarpon Springs, the oyster fishery at Crystal River, and mullet fishing from airboats at Flamingo. Outsized personalities inhabit these pages—crackers, conchs, now-legendary charterboatmen, Greek spongers, and Cuban vivero captains. These portraits of a bygone era are also remarkable tales of formative chapters in the life of a scientist who later worked tirelessly to preserve our dwindling marine resources.

GILBERT L. VOSS (1918–1989) was professor of biological oceanography at the University of Miami. He is the author of several books, including Seashore Life of Florida and the Caribbean. ROBERT S. VOSS, the author’s son, is a curator at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City.

Returning North with the Spring John R. Harris

From the Everglades to Maine in the footsteps of Edwin Way Teale

Have you ever dreamed . . . of leaving winter behind, of meeting spring under far-southern skies, of following its triumphal pilgrimage up the map with flowers all the way, with singing birds and soft air, green grass and trees new-clothed, of coming north with the spring? —Edwin Way Teale

“Harris’s thrilling revisit is a powerful addition to nature-writing in its own right.” —Janisse Ray, author of Drifting into Darien: A Personal and Natural History of the Altamaha River

“A highly engaging narrative of adventure amid wild beauty. Harris describes not only what has been lost but also what remains, and merits our protection, today.”—John Elder, author of Pilgrimage to Vallombrosa: From Vermont to Italy in the Footsteps of George Perkins Marsh “Captures the connection between humans and the landscape in order to ask essential questions: How do we cope with loss? How do we hope for recovery in the face of such devastation as species extinction and climate change?” —A. James Wohlpart, author of Walking in the Land of Many Gods: Remembering Sacred Reason in Contemporary Environmental Literature

At winter’s end in 1947, driven by the devastating loss of a son killed in World War II, naturalist Edwin Way Teale followed the dawning spring season northward in an amazing 17,000-mile odyssey from the Everglades to Maine. He wrote about the adventure in North with the Spring. Its sequel Wandering Through Winter won the Pulitzer Prize.

Nature/Essays March 192 pp. | 5 ½ x 8 ½ | 22 b/w photos, 4 maps ISBN 978-0-8130-6274-7 | Cloth $24.95

Retracing Teale’s route, writer John Harris reveals a vastly changed natural world. In Returning North with the Spring, he stops at the very places where Teale once stood, trekking through the Okefenokee wetland, the Great Smoky Mountains, the Great Dismal Swamp, the New Jersey Pine Barrens, and Cape Cod. He is stunned to see how climate change, invasive species, and other factors have affected the landscapes and wildlife. Yet he also discovers that many of the sites Teale described have been newly “rewilded” or permanently protected by the government. Homage to the past, report on the present, glimpse into the future—this book honors what has been lost in the years since Teale’s famous journey and finds hope in the small tenacities of nature. JOHN R. HARRIS is executive director of the Monadnock Institute of Nature, Place, and Culture at Franklin Pierce University. He is the coeditor of Beyond the Notches: Stories of Place in New Hampshire’s North Country. OF RELATED INTE RE ST The Peace of Blue Water Journeys Bill Belleville 240 pp. | 6 x 9 | Illus.

E. G. Barnhill Florida Photographer, Adventurer, Entrepreneur Gary Monroe

Old Florida in daring color “Provides a wonderful insight into the world of Florida’s tourism industry through the eyes of E. G. Barnhill as an unsung character of hand-colored photography.” —R. Lynn Whitelaw, founding director and curator, Leepa-Rattner Museum of Art “A visual feast. Like the Highwaymen, Barnhill created his own version of the landscape, based on the real environment yet in a fantastic otherworldly palette.” —Rick Kilby, author of Finding the Fountain of Youth: Ponce de León and Florida's Magical Waters “These dramatic hand-painted photographs capture old Florida with color and light.”—Lu Vickers, coauthor of Remembering Paradise Park: Tourism and Segregation at Silver Springs “Takes us on a historical voyage while we visit Florida landscapes as seen through Barnhill’s lens.”—Larry Roberts, author of Florida’s Golden Age of Souvenirs, 1890–1930 Art/Photography March 136 pp. | 8 x 10 | 83 color photos ISBN 978-0-8130-6277-8 | Cloth $34.95

In the age of railroads and steamships, of frontier Florida and the tourism boom of the early 1900s, photographer E. G. Barnhill set up shop in the young city of St. Petersburg. He pioneered a popular new type of tourist art, colorizing black-and-white snapshots taken by himself and his customers. He sold many of his hand-colored photographs as postcards or home décor. Barnhill applied watercolors to black-and-white prints according to his own sense of light and palette and his interpretation of consumer demand. Visitors wanted one-of-a-kind works of art to help them remember the experience of Florida. Unlike other colorists of the time whose landscapes were airbrushed to appear dreamy and ethereal, Barnhill captured the state’s clear, brisk colors with richness and intensity. He pushed aside conventions by using matte instead of glossy print paper to better soak up colors, and with radical experiments in gold toning and uranium dyes, which created unearthly hues. Filled with vibrant images of Barnhill’s unique creations, precursors to the popular landscape art of the Highwaymen and others, this book showcases a little-known artist whose inventive techniques—particularly his uranium-dye coloring—merit a place in the story of American photography. A fascinating mix of photographic realism and individual artistic vision, Barnhill’s work reveals both the Florida that was and the Florida that tourists wanted to believe in. GARY MONROE, professor of fine arts and photography at Daytona State College, is the author of numerous books, including Mary Ann Carroll: First Lady of the Highwaymen, Silver Springs: The Underwater Photography of Bruce Mozert, and The Highwaymen: Florida’s African-American Landscape Painters.

An Ecotourist’s Guide to the Everglades and the Florida Keys Robert Silk

Grab your camera and leave only your footprints! “Shows readers how to experience natural beauty in places they would never find on their own—and makes the workings of this complicated ecosystem easy to understand.”—Dan Burkhardt, editor of Florida Bay Forever: A Story of Water from the Everglades to the Keys “An alluring snapshot of the Florida Keys and the Everglades, capturing the regions’ fun side with fishing, fantasy, food, and an overall funky feel.”—Mary Barley, Everglades Trust President Packed with adventure and a local’s expert advice, this guide is essential reading for a fun-filled trip through the world’s most famous wetland, the Everglades, and the spectacular marine environment of the 130-mile island chain formed by the Florida Keys. These two connected ecosystems, linked by the Florida Bay, offer outdoors enthusiasts and nature lovers hundreds of outings, activities, and experiences for enjoying the natural wonders of the Sunshine State. The itinerary begins just outside Naples, where Robert Silk takes the reader to some of the area’s top eco-destinations, including the Fakahatchee Strand Preserve and the Ten Thousand Islands region. Moving eastward, he explores Big Cypress, Shark Valley, and the Miccosukee Indian Village. Although he avoids the urban areas of the Miami metroplex, Silk stops through alluring locales nearby, such as a bonsai garden and the unique Coral Castle in the Redland and Homestead areas, as well as the exceptional waterside campgrounds of Biscayne National Park. Silk’s tour of the region even features an eerie Cold War–era missile base deep in Everglades National Park, not far from an awe-inspiring mahogany hammock boardwalk. After that, he sets off for a paddle and a dive near imperiled reefs and the famous African Queen boat from the eponymous Bogart and Hepburn movie. The journey ends at Dry Tortugas National Park, but not before Silk highlights a selection of bicycling, paddling, and diving excursions in Key West.

Florida’s Paved Bike Trails


Jeff Kunerth and Gretchen Kunerth

The True Story of Tampa Bay’s Signature Bridge and the Man Who Brought It Down


Bill DeYoung Praise for previous editions “Whether on bike, foot, in-line skate, or even horse, this trail book can help you find the paths and know what to expect when you get there, and what you might find along the way.” —Tallahassee Democrat “Jammed with the info cyclists venturing into the unknown crave. There are simple maps that point out where to park, restrooms, water, crossroads, and ‘watch out’ places where extra caution is required along the routes.” —Gainesville Sun “Good for those who are far from home and appreciate having few surprises on a grueling bike ride into the backcountry, even on a paved pathway.”—Outdoor Adventure Magazine “Kunerth took about a year to ride the trails in the book. Sometimes, it was a matter of day trips from Orlando. Other times, he and his wife took long weekends to the Panhandle or South Florida to ride four or five trails.”—Jacksonville Times-Union “Readers are advised where to find trendy shopping on Miami's M-Path; where to find a bike rack at the Flagler mansion in Palm Beach (just outside the front gate), and which trail goes by the second largest nudist colony in Florida.”—Florida Bicycle Messenger This updated edition of the best-selling guide to bicycling in Florida adds twenty-three new trails to an already impressive roster, offering cyclists—as well as rollerbladers, joggers, and walkers—vital details on over sixty trails across Florida. JEFF KUNERTH retired from the Orlando Sentinel after forty-one years. He is the coauthor of Georgia Adventures: One-Day and Weekend Getaways. He and his wife, GRETCHEN KUNERTH, have together bicycled thousands of miles in Florida and Georgia since the early 1980s.

“An intimately detailed account of this disaster, its victims and the survivors, the legal aftermath, as well as a complete history of the bridge, old and new. . . . Reads like a novel.”—Florida TimesUnion “Takes us . . . into the thoughts and emotions of the principal players as the unfolding calamity is perceived too late in the fury of a sudden, blinding rainstorm.” —Florida Weekly “DeYoung’s account of the accident from the perspective of the victims traveling on the bridge is riveting. . . . A fresh and vivid retelling of the disaster.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Weaves together personal interviews and extensive research to reconstruct how Florida’s mightiest bridge was built then destroyed, and how the horrendous accident effectively cast a pall over the life of harbor pilot John Lerro.”—Ocala Star Banner “A well-paced narrative that parses history from tragedy.” —Connect Savannah On the morning of May 9, 1980, during sudden violent weather, a 600-foot freighter struck a support pier of the fifteen-mile Sunshine Skyway Bridge. The main span splintered and collapsed 150 feet into Tampa Bay. Seven cars and a Greyhound bus fell over the broken edge and into the churning water below. Thirty-five people died. Skyway tells the entire story of this horrific event. Through personal interviews and extensive research, Bill DeYoung pieces together the harrowing moments of the collision, including the first-person accounts of witnesses and survivors. The result is a gripping retelling of the worst ship-bridge collision in U.S. history. BILL DEYOUNG is a native of St. Petersburg, Florida. Nationally recognized for his music journalism, he was a writer and editor at various Florida newspapers for three decades.

Jefferson’s Poplar Forest

Black Miami in the Twentieth Century

Unearthing a Virginia Plantation Edited by Barbara J. Heath and Jack Gary

Marvin Dunn

“Tell[s] how multiple archaeological digs have unearthed details about the lives of Jefferson, subsequent owners and their families—and the slaves who worked on the plantation and their descendants.” —Richmond Times-Dispatch

Florida Historical Society Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Award

“Cutting edge. . . . Produce[s] a much clearer picture of what life at an important Virginia plantation was like in the early years of the republic.”—American Archaeology “Although Poplar Forest is best known for its association with Jefferson, this volume provides new insights into the daily lives of the slaves who labored on his behalf.”—Southeastern Archaeology “Adds to our understanding of the complex and often-fluid relationships between master and slave, as well as master and landscape.” —Virginia Magazine of History and Biography “The everyday, seemingly unremarkable artifacts of life as it was lived at Poplar Forest provide perhaps some of the most powerful evidence for a new kind of understanding of the third president and, to some extent, late 18th and early 19th century plantation life. . . . A book that truly does discover ‘something new’ about Jefferson by placing him in the kind of context his writings do not always do.” —Northeast Historical Archaeology “[The] reader is left eager to embark on his or her own journey to inquire more about the rich topics surrounding Thomas Jefferson’s post-presidency life, American formal gardens, plantation archaeology, historical ecology, and slave life in the Middle Atlantic region.” —Historical Archaeology

Florida Trust for Historic Preservation Award “Brings to life the heritage of Miami’s black community.” —Publishers Weekly “From the black pirates of Biscayne Bay to the election of U.S. Rep. Carrie Meek, the history of African Americans in South Florida—like that of blacks everywhere—has been punctuated by triumph, horror, drudgery, and courage. . . . Marvin Dunn gives us the first comprehensive look at what the path has been like for the individuals, businesses, churches, civic groups and fraternal societies that cast their lot with this young community and how, even in the worst of times, they have held on.” —Miami Herald “Makes it clear that the future of blacks in Miami will in large part determine the future of the city itself.”—Miami Today “As the story enters the contemporary era, the author devotes separate chapters to the civil rights movement, school desegregation, racial riots and disturbances, the criminal justice system, and immigration.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “An informative profile of the black experience in twentieth-century Miami.”—Journal of Southern History “A lucid, balanced history of Miami’s diverse, black population.” —American Studies MARVIN DUNN, professor emeritus of psychology at Florida International University, is coauthor of The Miami Riot of 1980: Crossing the Bounds.

BARBARA J. HEATH is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Tennessee and author of Hidden Lives: The Archaeology of Slave Life at Thomas Jefferson’s Poplar Forest. JACK GARY is director of archaeology and landscapes at Poplar Forest.

Revolutionary Cuba

Origins of the Dream

A History

Hughes’s Poetry and King’s Rhetoric

Luis Martínez-Fernández

W. Jason Miller

“One of the first books in nearly three decades that dares to explore the Cuban Revolution from its origins through Raul Castro’s government.”—NBC Miami

“Majestic. Grounded in astute interpretations of how speech acts function in history, this book is an exemplary model for future inquiries about the confluence of thought, poetry, and social action.”—Jerry Ward Jr., coeditor of The Cambridge History of African American Literature

“Helpful to anyone trying to understand present-day Cuba.” —CubaNews “Provides a strong narrative and, as the reconciliation and economic integration of Cuba and the Cuban diaspora accelerates following the post-December 2014 normalization of US–Cuban relations, an increasingly significant perspective.”—Social History “A remarkable achievement. The most comprehensive, synthetic, and systematic appraisal of the Cuban Revolution to date.”—Jorge Duany, author of Blurred Borders “Passionate and balanced, Luis Martínez-Fernández guides the reader expertly through the seemingly endless twists, turns, and detours of the Cuban Revolution.”—Gustavo Pérez Firmat, author of Life on the Hyphen Beginning with Batista’s coup in 1952, which catalyzed the rebels, and concluding with present-day transformations initiated under Raúl Castro, Revolutionary Cuba provides a balanced analytical synthesis of all the major topics of contemporary Cuban history. Luis Martínez-Fernández examines the circumstances that allowed the revolution to consolidate in the early 1960s, the Soviet influence throughout the latter part of the Cold War, and the struggle to survive the catastrophic Special Period of the 1990s after the collapse of the U.S.S.R. This book offers a comprehensive survey of the socialist movement that forever changed Cuba and the world. LUIS MARTÍNEZ-FERNÁNDEZ, professor of history at the University of Central Florida, served as senior editor of the two-volume Encyclopedia of Cuba: People, History, Culture and is the author of numerous books including Frontiers, Plantations, and Walled Cities: Essays on Society, Culture and Politics in the Hispanic Caribbean.

“A vade mecum for those interested in the cultural ingredients, the political values, and the artistic sensibilities that united Langston Hughes and Martin Luther King Jr. in spirit, thought, and outlook. Masterfully conceived, meticulously researched, and gracefully written, this book breaks new ground.”—Lewis V. Baldwin, author of There Is a Balm in Gilead: The Cultural Roots of Martin Luther King, Jr. “Archival material is spotlighted in Miller’s exploration of the ways Martin Luther King Jr. enlarged the appeal of his rhetoric by using poetry in his speeches. Readers will emerge with a greater appreciation of both King and Langston Hughes.”—Donna Akiba Sullivan Harper, editor of The Later Simple Stories (The Collected Works of Langston Hughes, Volume 8) “Miller’s study provides an original, engaging and provocative thesis that explores the hitherto unexplored links between two twentieth century African American icons.”—John A. Kirk, editor of Martin Luther King Jr. and the Civil Rights Movement: Controversies and Debates Origins of the Dream reveals the connection between Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and Langston Hughes’s poetry. During his research for this book, W. Jason Miller discovered a longforgotten reel-to-reel tape of King’s first “I Have a Dream” speech, which was delivered in a high school gymnasium in Rocky Mount, North Carolina. W.

We Will Always Be Here

An Archaeology of Life in a Coastal Community

Native Peoples on Living and Thriving in the South

Martha A. Zierden and Elizabeth J. Reitz

Edited by Denise E. Bates

“An amazing book, representing years of work, dozens of excavations, and presenting a continuous chronology of a colonial city from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century. No other city in America has this kind of archaeological record.”—Nan A. Rothschild, coauthor of The Archaeology of American Cities

“The Southeastern Indian people found their voices in this work. They are alive and well— still on their land!”—Hiram F. Gregory, coauthor of The Historic Indian Tribes of Louisiana: From 1542 to the Present

Charleston, South Carolina, is one of the most storied cities of the American South. Well known for its historic buildings and landscape, its thriving maritime culture, and its role in the beginning of the American Civil War, many consider it the birthplace of historic preservation. In Charleston, Martha Zierden and Elizabeth Reitz—whose archaeological fieldwork in the city spans more than three decades—reveal a vibrant, densely packed city, where people, animals, and colonial activity carried on in close proximity. Examining animal bones and the ruins of taverns, markets, townhouses, and smaller homes, the authors consider the residential, commercial, and public life of the city and the dynamics of production, distribution, and consumption of goods and services that linked it with rural neighbors and global markets. From early attempts at settlement and cattle ranching to the Denmark Vesey insurrection and efforts to improve the city’s drinking water, Zierden and Reitz explore the evolution of the urban environment, the intricacies of provisioning such a unique city, and the urban foodways and cuisine that continue to inspire Charleston’s culinary scene even today. MARTHA A. ZIERDEN is curator of historical archaeology at The Charleston Museum and has been involved in every major excavation in Charleston since 1980. ELIZABETH J. REITZ, professor of anthropology at the University of Georgia, is coauthor of Zooarchaeology, second edition.

“This collection fills a major void in our understanding of recent southern history by offering a wide-ranging selection of southern Indians a chance to speak for themselves, unfiltered, as they strike at the heart of identity: Indian identity, southern identity, and, ultimately, American identity.”—Greg O’Brien, editor of Pre-removal Choctaw History: Exploring New Paths The history of Native Americans in the U.S. South is a turbulent one, rife with conflict and inequality. Since the arrival of Spanish conquistadors in the fifteenth century, Native peoples have struggled to maintain their land, cultures, and ways of life. In We Will Always Be Here, contemporary tribal leaders, educators, and activists share their struggles for Indian identity, self-determination, and community development. Reflecting on such issues as poverty, education, racism, cultural preservation, and tribal sovereignty, the contributors to this volume offer a glimpse into the historical struggles of southern Native peoples, examine their present-day efforts, and share their hopes for the future. They also share examples of cultural practices that have either endured or been revitalized. In a country that still faces challenges to civil rights and misconceptions about Indian identity and tribal sovereignty, this timely book builds a deeper understanding of modern Native peoples within a region where they are often overlooked.

Indian River Lagoon

Making Modern Florida

An Environmental History

How the Spirit of Reform Shaped a New State Constitution

Nathaniel Osborn

The most biologically diverse coastline in the United States “Lively and nuanced.”—David McCally, author of The Everglades: An Environmental History “As we work to repair the damage we have done to fragile ecosystems, this book tells us how much we have lost and how little time we have left before it is completely destroyed. Important reading for all interested in saving what is left of vanishing natural Florida.”—Steven Noll, coauthor of Ditch of Dreams: The Cross Florida Barge Canal and the Struggle for Florida’s Future “Osborn has finally gifted the long misunderstood Indian River Lagoon with the discerning scientific insights and cultural perspective it deserves.”—Bill Belleville, author of The Peace of Blue: Water Journeys “Unwinds the natural and human histories that have made the region both popular and fragile.”—Evan P. Bennett, author of When Tobacco Was King: Families, Farm Labor, and Federal Policy in the Piedmont Stretching along 156 miles of Florida’s East Coast, the Indian River Lagoon contains the St. Lucie estuary, the Mosquito Lagoon, the Banana River Lagoon, and the Indian River. Nineteen canals and five man-made inlets have dramatically reshaped the region in the past two centuries, challenging the most biologically diverse estuarine system in the United States. Indian River Lagoon traces the winding story of the waterway, showing how humans have altered the area to fit their needs and also how the lagoon has influenced the cultures along its shores. Now stuck in transition between a place of labor and a place of recreation, the lagoon has become a chief focus of public concern. This book provides a much-needed bigger picture as debates continue over how best to restore this natural resource.

Mary E. Adkins “Adkins portrays a major turning point in the development of modern Florida and has done a great job of bringing to life so many of the people who achieved this massive rewrite of our constitution.”—Talbot D’Alemberte, former president of the American Bar Association and author of The Florida State Constitution “Deftly captures the story of the politics and powerful personalities who created a more modern government structure for Florida.”—Neil Skene, former editor and president of Congressional Quarterly, Inc. Mid-twentieth-century Florida was a state in flux. Changes exemplified by rapidly burgeoning cities and suburbs, the growth of the Kennedy Space Center during the space race, and the impending construction of Walt Disney World overwhelmed the outdated 1885 constitution. A small group of rural legislators known as the “Pork Chop Gang” controlled the state and thwarted several attempts to modernize the constitution. Through court-imposed redistribution of legislators and the hard work of state leaders, however, the executive branch was reorganized and the constitution was modernized. In Making Modern Florida, Mary Adkins goes behind the scenes to examine the history and impact of the 1966–68 revision of the Florida state constitution. With storytelling flair, Adkins uses interviews and detailed analysis of speeches and transcripts to vividly capture the moves, gambits, and backroom moments necessary to create and introduce a new state constitution. This carefully researched account brings to light the constitutional debates and political processes in the growth to maturity of what is now the nation’s third largest state. MARY E. ADKINS is director of legal writing and appellate advocacy and master legal skills professor at the University of Florida’s Fredric G. Levin College of Law.

White Sand Black Beach


Civil Rights, Public Space, and Miami’s Virginia Key

La Florida

Gregory W. Bush

Five Hundred Years of Hispanic Presence

“With ample measures of passion and research, Bush has written a remarkable book about a special place: Virginia Key, a reminder of the possibilities of protest and change.”—Gary R. Mormino, author of Land of Sunshine, State of Dreams: A Social History of Modern Florida In May 1945, a small group of activists staged a “wade-in” at a whites-only beach in Miami, protesting the Jim Crow–era laws that denied blacks access to recreational areas. Pressured by the demonstrators and the media, the Dade County Commission ultimately designated the difficult-to-access Virginia Key as a beach for African Americans. The first legally recognized beach for African Americans in South Florida, Virginia Key Beach became vitally important to the community, offering a place to congregate with family and friends and to enjoy the natural wonders of the area. It would also help to foster further civil rights activism. By providing an important and tangible victory in the struggle for equal access to the coast, it became central to the struggle for civil rights in public space. Later, as Florida beaches were desegregated, many viewed Virginia Key as symbolic of an oppressive past and ceased to patronize it. At the same time, white leaders responded to desegregation by decreasing attention to and funding for public spaces in general. The beach was largely ignored and eventually shut down. However, in recent decades environmentalists, community leaders, and civil rights activists have come together to revitalize this historic landmark. In White Sand Black Beach, historian and longtime Miami activist Gregory Bush recounts this unique story and the current state of public space in South Florida, which are intimately interwoven with the history of segregation. With special emphasis on oral history, he uses Historic Virginia Key Beach Park and waterfront development as a lens for examining the intersection of public space, race, public involvement, and capitalism. GREGORY W. BUSH is associate professor of history at the University of Miami. He is the author of Lord of Attention: Gerald Stanley Lee and the Crowd Metaphor in Industrializing America.

Within the Walls and What Do I Love?

African Diasporic Women’s Narratives


Politics of Resistance, Survival, and Citizenship

Edited by Annette Debo

Simone A. James Alexander

“A superb edition of H.D.’s littleknown collection of 14 short stories, Within the Walls, and set of three long poems, What Do I Love? . . . Debo provides cultural, political, and historical context that gives insights into H.D.’s personal life, the difficulties and anxieties of a city at war and under attack, and the broader international stage that informed both the times and H.D.’s cultural and literary production. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice

“Refusing to fixate on suffering, Alexander celebrates African Diasporic women’s transgressions of Western femininity, medicine, and citizenship.”—Contemporary Women’s Writing

“These two hard-to-come-by texts reveal that the H.D. we know— the poet of exquisite, erudite, allusive imagist or modernist poems—chose to live through the experience of WWII London and to share with her fellow Londoners the hardships and anxieties of a city under attack.”— Demetres Tryphonopoulos, editor of Majic Ring “Fascinating reading. Debo’s introduction and precise scholarly edition are not simply useful but will also change our minds about some of the other post-war works now available.”—Cynthia Hogue, coeditor of The Sword Went Out to Sea Written during World War II in London, where H.D. chose to stay despite offers of refuge in the United States, these stories and poems capture the essence of war-torn London from the perspective of a woman with her boots on the ground. Annette Debo’s nuanced introduction helps us comprehend a time and place that transformed “H.D. Imagiste” into the bold war writer evinced in this volume and opens our eyes to the impact of these war experiences on H.D.’s better-known works.

“Through the works of four migrant women writers—Audre Lorde, Edwidge Danticat, Maryse Conde, and Grace Nichols— [Alexander] evaluates the sexual deviance embodied in diseased, disabled, and hypersexualized female bodies, as well as women’s resistance against normative classifications. . . . An insightful (re)interpretation of black women’s experiences both in the United States and beyond.”—Women’s Studies “Brilliant. Alexander helps us to understand the complexities of race, gender, sexuality, migration, and identity as they intersect with creativity. A must-read for those interested in women’s writing today.” —Renée Larrier, author of Autofiction and Advocacy in the Francophone Caribbean “Critically engages current topical issues with sophisticated scholarly readings. There is a tone of the transgressive that gives this work the kind of edge that always provides transcendence.”—Carole Boyce Davies, author of Caribbean Spaces “An authoritative and original study, characterized by meticulously researched scholarship, which focuses on the female body across a fascinating corpus of literary production in the Caribbean and elsewhere. This refreshing and effective interdisciplinary approach extends the boundaries of traditional literary analysis.”—E. Anthony Hurley, author of Through a Black Veil

H.D. (born Hilda Doolittle, 1886–1961) was an American writer who exerted enormous influence on modernist poetry and prose. ANNETTE DEBO is professor of English at Western Carolina University.

Black Well-Being Health and Selfhood in Antebellum Black Literature Andrea Stone “An innovative interpretation of antebellum black literature as well as a timely contribution to the growing body of scholarship on health and the black body in slavery and freedom.”—Erica L. Ball, author of To Live an Antislavery Life: Personal Politics and the Antebellum Black Middle Class “Engages productively with discourses of identity and subjectivity, the human and post-human, nationalism and citizenship, and law and medicine in a ‘transcolonial’ framework that includes the United States, the Caribbean, and Canada.”—Gwen Bergner, author of Taboo Subjects: Race, Sex, and Psychoanalysis Analyzing slave narratives, emigration polemics, a murder trial, and black-authored fiction, Andrea Stone highlights the central role physical and mental health and well-being played in antebellum black literary constructions of selfhood. At a time when political and medical theorists emphasized black well-being in their arguments for or against slavery, African American men and women developed their own theories about what it means to be healthy and well in contexts of injury, illness, sexual abuse, disease, and disability. Such portrayals of the healthy black self in early black print culture created a nineteenthcentury politics of well-being that spanned continents. Even in conditions of painful labor, severely limited resources, and physical and mental brutality, these writers counter stereotypes and circumstances by representing and claiming the totality of bodily existence. ANDREA STONE is assistant professor of English at Smith College.

Documenting the Undocumented

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

Latino/a Narratives and Social Justice in the Era of Operation Gatekeeper

Lee Skinner

Marta CamineroSantangelo

“Whether considering public or private spaces, domesticity, work, or education, this book provides sophisticated readings of a broad range of narratives that illustrate the tensions brought about in discussions of gender and its relation to modernity in Spanish America.”—Fernando Unzueta, author of La imaginación histórica y el romance nacional en Hispanoamérica

“While the U.S. immigration ‘debate’ turns strident in media circles, CamineroSantangelo intervenes with a call to read carefully the more complex stories that define us as human and humane.”—Debra A. Castillo, coeditor of Mexican Public Intellectuals “This insightful study considers how undocumented people are portrayed in the wake of restrictive immigration policies.”—Rodrigo Lazo, author of Writing to Cuba: Filibustering and Cuban Exiles in the United States Looking at the work of Latino/a authors who are U.S. citizens, including Junot Diaz, Cristina Garcia, and Julia Alvarez, Marta CamineroSantangelo examines how writers are increasingly expressing their solidarity with undocumented immigrants. She similarly foregrounds the narratives of the undocumented themselves to show how they are emerging in the public sphere. In this multifaceted issue, the voices are myriad: they challenge common interpretations of “illegal” immigration, explore the inevitable traumas and ethical dilemmas, protest their own silencing in immigration debates, and even capitalize on the topic for the commercial market. This growing body of literature is critical to understanding not only the Latino/a immigrant experience, but also alternative visions of nation and belonging. MARTA CAMINERO-SANTANGELO, professor of English at the University of Kansas, is the author of On Latinidad: U.S. Latino Literature and the Construction of Ethnicity and The Madwoman Can’t Speak: Or Why Insanity Is Not Subversive.

This ambitious volume surveys an expansive and diverse range of countries across the nineteenth-century Spanish-colonized Americas, showing how both men and women used the discourses of modernity to envision the place of women in the modern, utopian nation. Lee Skinner argues that the rhetorical nature of modernity made it possible for readers and writers to project and respond to multiple contradictory perspectives on gender roles. With special attention to public and private space, domesticity, education, technology, and work, Skinner identifies gender as a central concern at every level of society. She looks at texts by Clorinda Matto de Turner, Jorge Isaacs, Soledad Acosta de Samper, Ignacio Altamirano, Juana Manuela Gorriti, and many others, ranging from novels and essays to newspaper articles and advertisements. This book offers a complete picture of how writers thought about gender roles, modernization, and national identity during Spanish America’s uneven transition toward modernity.

An Introduction to Piers Plowman

The Archaeology of the Cold War

Michael Calabrese

Todd A. Hanson

“A comprehensive and witty guide to understanding Piers Plowman in all its versions, and a manifesto for the pure intellectual pleasure to be had from reading the text as it dynamically unfolds in each of the poet’s reworkings.”—Sarah Wood, author of Conscience and the Composition of Piers Plowman

“A long overdue book that highlights issues of memory, scholarship, and the role of the archaeologist as part of a larger move to address the Cold War as a defining and significant period in human history.”—James P. Delgado, author of Silent Killers: Submarines and Underwater Warfare

William Langland’s allegorical poem Piers Plowman is becoming ever more popular in medieval English literature courses. But most current introductions focus primarily on the B text, leaving a gap in available resources for the poem’s study. As Piers Plowman continues to gain academic attention in all its three versions (the A, B, and C texts), teachers and students need a new perspective and new approach to the poem as an evolving whole. This first comprehensive introduction to Langland’s masterful work covers all three iterations and outlines the various changes that occurred between each. Useful for individuals reading any version of Piers Plowman, this engaging guide offers a much-needed navigational summary, a chronology of historic events relevant to the poem, biographical notes about Langland, and keys to characters and proper pronunciation. Calabrese’s definitive and refreshingly lively volume allows readers to navigate this daunting poem and to contextualize it within the literary history of Western culture. MICHAEL CALABRESE, professor of English at California State University, is author of Chaucer's Ovidian Arts of Love.

“An important contribution to the growing number of archaeological studies of the Cold War, for the first time synthesizing research undertaken in the United States.”—Wayne Cocroft, coeditor of The Home Front in Britain 1914–1918: An Archaeological Handbook The Cold War remains one of the twentieth century’s defining events, possessing broad political, social, and material implications that continue to have impact. In this book, Todd Hanson presents nine case studies of archaeological investigations conducted at famous—and some not so famous—historic American Cold War sites, including Bikini Atoll, the Nevada Test Site, and the Cuban sites of the Soviet Missile Crisis. By examining nuclear weapons test sites, missile silos, submarine bases, fallout shelters, and more, Hanson illustrates how archaeology can help strip away myths, secrets, and political rhetoric to better inform our understanding of the conflict’s formative role in the making of the contemporary American landscape. Addressing modern ramifications of the Cold War, Hanson also looks at the preservation of atomic heritage sites, the atomic tourism phenomenon, and the struggles of atomic veterans. TODD A.

Mythic Frontiers Remembering, Forgetting, and Profiting with Cultural Heritage Tourism Daniel R. Maher “Maher explores the development of the Frontier Complex as he deconstructs the frontier myth in the context of manifest destiny, American exceptionalism, and white male privilege. A very significant contribution to our understanding of how and why heritage sites reinforce privilege.”— Frederick H. Smith, author of The Archaeology of Alcohol and Drinking “Peels back the layer of dime westerns and True Grit films to show how their mythologies are made material. You’ll never experience a ‘heritage site’ the same way again.” —Christine Bold, author of The Frontier Club: Popular Westerns and Cultural Power, 1880–1924 The history of the Wild West has long been fictionalized in novels, films, and television shows. Catering to these popular representations, towns across America have created tourist sites connecting such tales with historical monuments. Yet these attractions stray from known histories in favor of the embellished past visitors expect to see. In Mythic Frontiers, Daniel Maher illustrates how aggrandized versions of the past have been used to turn a profit. Examining the imagined frontier town of Fort Smith, Arkansas, Maher warns that disconnecting cultural heritage tourism from history minimizes the devastating consequences of imperialism, racism, and sexism and relegitimizes the privilege bestowed upon white men.

The Powhatan Landscape

Gathering at Silver Glen

An Archaeological History of the Algonquian Chesapeake

Community and History in Late Archaic Florida

Martin D. Gallivan

Zackary I. Gilmore

“A well-written, fresh, and engaging interpretation of two millennia of Virginia Algonquian landscape history.” —Stephen Potter, author of Commoners, Tribute, and Chiefs: The Development of Algonquian Culture in the Potomac Valley

“A theoretically robust and engaging work.” —Donald H. Holly Jr., author of History in the Making: The Archaeology of the Eastern Subarctic

Native American history is primarily studied through the lens of European contact, and the story of Virginia’s Powhatans traditionally focuses on the English arrival in the Chesapeake. Meanwhile, a deeper indigenous history remains largely unexplored. The Powhatan Landscape breaks new ground by tracing Native placemaking in the Chesapeake from the Algonquian arrival to the Powhatan’s clashes with the English. Martin Gallivan details how Virginia Algonquians constructed riverine communities alongside fishing grounds and collective burials and later within horticultural towns. Even after the violent ruptures of the colonial era, Native people returned to riverine towns for pilgrimages commemorating the enduring power of place. For today’s American Indian communities in the Chesapeake, this reexamination of landscape and history represents a powerful basis from which to contest narratives and policies that have denied their existence. MARTIN D. GALLIVAN, associate professor of anthropology at William and Mary, is the author of James River Chiefdoms: The Rise of Social Inequality in the Chesapeake.

Paleoindian Societies of the Coastal Southeast James S. Dunbar

“An intellectual tour de force that provides a significant contribution to the literature on hunter-gatherer archaeology.”—David G. Anderson, coeditor of Archaeology of the MidHolocene Southeast Broadening our understanding of southeastern hunter-gatherers who lived between 4600 and 3500 BP, Zackary Gilmore presents evidence that the Late Archaic community of Silver Glen—one of Florida’s most elaborate shell mound complexes—integrated people and places from throughout Florida by staging large-scale feasts and other public events. Gilmore analyzes the composition and style of pottery at the site, revealing that many of the large, elaborately decorated vessels from the shell mounds were imports with nonlocal origins. His findings indicate that the people of Silver Glen frequently hosted large-scale gatherings that helped to create a sense of community among culturally diverse groups with homelands separated by hundreds of kilometers. The history of Florida’s Late Archaic hunter-gatherers is shown here to be much more dynamic than traditionally thought. ZACKARY I. GILMORE is a postdoctoral associate in the Department of Anthropology at the University of Florida.

“Presents new information, perspectives, and interpretations that will have a significant impact on the way archaeologists think about the initial settlement of the lower Southeast and how the dynamic late Pleistocene–early Holocene landscape influenced the lives of Paleoindian people.”—Richard W. Jefferies, author of The Archaeology of Carrier Mills “Dunbar takes the reader on an extensive, multidisciplinary journey and presents a composite picture of an environment and a way of life at the Pleistocene-Holocene boundary.” —Barbara Purdy, coauthor of How to Do Archaeology the Right Way, second edition For more than 130 years, research aimed at understanding Paleoindian occupation of the coastal Southeast has progressed at a glacial pace. In this volume, James Dunbar suggests that the most important archaeological and paleontological resources in the Americas still remain undiscovered in Florida’s karst river basins. The late Pleistocene–early Holocene landscape hosted more species and greater numbers of them in the Southeast compared to any other region in North America at that time. Through extensive research, Dunbar demonstrates a masterful understanding of the lifeways of the region’s people and the animals they hunted, showing that the geography and diversity of food sources was unique to that period. Building a case for the wealth of information yet to be unearthed, he provides a fresh perspective on the distant past and an original way of thinking about early life on the land mass we call Florida. JAMES S. DUNBAR retired after more than 35 years of service with the Florida Bureau of Archaeological Research. He currently serves as an archaeological consultant and is a founding member and the board chairman of the Aucilla Research Institute, Inc.

Southeast Inka Frontiers

Beyond the Nasca Lines

Boundaries and Interactions

Ancient Life at La Tiza in the Peruvian Desert

Sonia Alconini

Christina A. Conlee “An important contribution to the study of ancient empires and processes of imperial expansion through an in-depth study of the southeastern Inka frontier in current-day Bolivia.”—Elizabeth N. Arkush, author of Hillforts of the Ancient Andes: Colla Warfare, Society, and Landscape Imperial frontiers are a fascinating stage for studying the interactions of people, institutions, and their environments. In one of the first books to explore the Inka frontier through archaeology, Sonia Alconini examines part of present-day Bolivia that was once a territory at the edge of the Inka empire. Along this frontier, one of the New World’s most powerful polities came into repeated conflict with tropical lowland groups that it could never subject to its rule. Using extensive field research, Alconini explores the multifaceted socioeconomic processes that transpired in the frontier region. Her unprecedented study shows how the Inka empire exercised control over vast expanses of land and peoples in a territory located hundreds of miles away from the capital city of Cusco, and how people on the frontier navigated the cultural and environmental divide that separated the Andes and the Amazon. SONIA ALCONINI is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Texas, San Antonio.

“Excellent. This is the first comprehensive cultural history for the Nasca Drainage from the first settlers to the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors.”—Donald A. Proulx, author of A Sourcebook of Nasca Ceramic Iconography: Reading a Culture through Its Art Inhabited for over 5,000 years before European colonization, the site of La Tiza in Peru’s Nasca Desert provides an unprecedented opportunity to examine the dynamics of ancient complex societies. This volume takes a long temporal perspective on La Tiza from the Preceramic through the Inca era, studying the site within the context of broader developments such as the rise of Nasca culture, subsequent conquest by the Wari Empire, collapse, abandonment, and the reformation of a new society. Christina Conlee synthesizes data she obtained while directing a multi-year excavation at the site with data from other investigations to reconstruct the development of social complexity over time. She includes detailed descriptions of the stratigraphy and artifacts, carefully separating materials from each period. Exploring how political integration, religious practices, economics, and the environment shaped societal transformations at La Tiza, Conlee offers patterns that can be found in other areas and can be used to understand the development of other longlasting civilizations. CHRISTINA A. CONLEE is associate professor of anthropology at Texas State University.

Ritual, Violence, and the Fall of the Classic Maya Kings Edited by Gyles Iannone, Brett A. Houk, and Sonja A. Schwake “A valuable contribution to our knowledge of the events surrounding the collapse of the ancient Maya in the Late and Terminal Classic periods, particularly the death of kings and the failure of the institution of divine kingship.”—Lisa LeCount, coeditor of Classic Maya Provincial Politics “A comprehensive look at the concept of Maya kingship as well as new insights into the Maya collapse—a must read for all Mayanists.” —James Garber, editor of The Ancient Maya of the Belize Valley Maya kings who failed to ensure the prosperity of their kingdoms were subject to various forms of termination, including the ritual defacing and destruction of monuments and even violent death. This is the first comprehensive volume to focus on the varied responses to the failure of Classic period dynasties in the southern lowlands. The contributors offer new insights into the Maya “collapse,” evaluating the trope of the scapegoat king and the demise of the traditional institution of kingship in the early ninth century AD—a time of intense environmental, economic, social, political, and even ideological change.

The Ancient Urban Maya Neighborhoods, Inequality, and Built Form

The Archaeology of Ancestors

Ritual and Archaic States Edited by Joanne M. A. Murphy

Death, Memory, and Veneration

Scott R. Hutson

Edited by Erica Hill and Jon B. Hageman

“Important and timely, Hutson’s analysis of Maya cities in their constituent neighborhoods marks a new milestone in the study of Maya urbanism.” —Cynthia Robin, author of Everyday Life Matters: Maya Farmers at Chan

“A must-have for anyone interested in the role of ancestors in past and present societies.” —Mercourios Georgiadis, author of Kos in the Neolithic and Early Bronze Age: The Halasarna Finds and the Aegean Settlement Pattern

“Working through a myriad of definitions for urbanization and defining aspects of those often missing from archaeological discussions, Hutson provides the best perspective to date on the complexities of ancient ‘urban’ life and life decisions by the prehistoric Maya.” —Fred Valdez Jr., coeditor of Ancient Maya Commoners Ancient cities were complex social, political, and economic entities, but they also suffered from inequality, poor sanitation, and disease—often more than rural areas. In The Ancient Urban Maya, Scott Hutson examines ancient Maya cities and argues that, despite the hazards of urban life, these places continued to lure people for many centuries. With built forms that welcomed crowds, neighborhoods that offered domestic comforts, marketplaces that facilitated the exchange of goods and ideas, and the opportunities to expand social networks and capital, the Maya used their cities in familiar ways. SCOTT R. HUTSON, associate professor of anthropology at the University of Kentucky, is the author of Dwelling, Identity, and the Maya: Relational Archaeology at Chunchucmil.

“Ancestor veneration and manipulation are of great importance to our understanding of societies past and present. This volume will become a standard reference work for academics and students alike.”—Nicola Harrington, author of Living with the Dead: Ancestor Worship and Mortuary Ritual in Ancient Egypt Contributors to this landmark volume demonstrate that ancestor veneration was about much more than claiming property rights: the spirits of the dead were central to domestic disputes, displays of wealth, and power and status relationships. Case studies from China, Africa, Europe, and Mesoamerica use the evidence of art, architecture, ritual, and burial practices to explore the complex roles of ancestors in the past. Including a comprehensive overview of nearly two hundred years of anthropological research, The Archaeology of Ancestors reveals how and why societies remember and revere the dead. Through analyses of human remains, ritual deposits, and historical documents, contributors explain how ancestors were woven into the social fabric of the living.

“An important addition to our understanding of early states. The contributors amply demonstrate through their fresh insights how crucial ritual is to statecraft in the Old and New Worlds.”—Peter N. Peregrine, coeditor of Ancient Human Migrations While ritual and archaic states have both been prominent topics in recent archaeological studies, this is the first volume to combine both subjects by exploring the varying nature, expression, and significance of ritual in archaic states. It compares archaic rituals across many different cultures—Vijayanagara, Swahili Lamu, Venice, Asante, Aztec, Ming China, Oaxaca, Greece, Inca, Wari, and Chaco. The contributors posit that the nature of rituals, the level of investment in rituals, and their sociopolitical significance can vary greatly from state to state, even among societies with similar levels of social complexity, population, and spatial distribution. Highlighting the importance of ritual as an inherent part of a cultural narrative, and demonstrating how the study of ritual enables a better understanding of diverse social groups, this volume shows how the location, frequency, and role of ritual differed significantly across archaic states. JOANNE M. A. MURPHY, assistant professor of classical studies at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, is the editor of Prehistoric Crete: Regional and Diachronic Studies on Mortuary Systems.

The Maritime Landscape of the Isthmus of Panamá James P. Delgado, Tomás Mendizábal, Frederick H. Hanselmann, and Dominique Rissolo “Presents for the first time a chronological description of the geography, history, and archaeology of Panamá from a maritime perspective.” —Roger C. Smith, author of The Maritime Heritage of the Cayman Islands “Seamlessly combines history and archaeology to discuss the global importance of the Isthmus of Panamá.”—Ben Ford, editor of The Archaeology of Maritime Landscapes For over 500 years, the Isthmus of Panamá has been dominated by its relationship to the sea and the rivers that feed it. In this seminal work, the authors explore the maritime history of the isthmus through its many stages: from its prehistoric period through Spanish colonialism to the building of the canal and its function as a route for modernday maritime traffic. Combining archaeology, history, geography, and economic history, this volume situates Panamá’s canal and isthmus in the global economy and world maritime culture. JAMES P.

Disease and Discrimination

Known for My Work

Poverty and Pestilence in Colonial Atlantic America

African American Ethics from Slavery to Freedom

Dale L. Hutchinson

Lynda J. Morgan

“Fascinating yet sobering, this volume highlights the important role that social and political causes of poverty and poor living conditions, beyond the presence of infectious pathogens themselves, play in disease epidemics and high mortality.”—Megan A. Perry, editor of Bioarchaeology and Behavior: The People of the Ancient Near East

“Demonstrates that the ‘emancipation generation’ bequeathed values, ethical frameworks, and identities to multiple ensuing generations, shaping religious, educational, and cultural institutions as well as labor and political organizations.”—Peter Rachleff, editor of Starving Amidst Too Much and Other IWW Writings on the Food Industry

“Hutchinson effectively argues that disease is not an event but a process and then wonderfully illustrates how the interaction of culture and illness shaped the history of the eastern seaboard from the sixteenth through the nineteenth centuries.”—Marie Danforth, University of Southern Mississippi

“Shows how far off the mark arguments are that claim that black Americans generally have internalized inferiority and engage in self-defeating behaviors.”—William A. Darity Jr., coeditor of Boundaries of Clan and Color: Transnational Comparisons of Inter-Group Disparity

Disease and discrimination are processes linked to class in the early American colonies. Many early colonists fell victim to mass sickness as Old and New World systems collided and new social, political, economic, and ecological dynamics allowed disease to spread.

Countering the idea that slaves were unprepared for freedom, this groundbreaking study argues that slaves built an ethos of “honest labor” and collective humanism in the face of oppression—an ethos that has been taken up by generations of African Americans as a foundation for citizenship and participation in democracy.

Dale Hutchinson argues that most colonists, slaves, servants, and nearby Native Americans suffered significant health risks due to their lower economic and social status. With examples ranging from indentured servitude in the Chesapeake to the housing and sewage systems of New York to the effects of conflict between European powers, Hutchinson posits that poverty and living conditions, more so than microbes, were often at the root of epidemics. DALE L. HUTCHINSON is professor of anthropology at the University of North Carolina. He is the author of Foraging, Farming, and Coastal Biocultural Adaptation in Late Prehistoric North Carolina and Bioarchaeology of the Florida Gulf Coast: Adaptation, Conflict, and Change.

Known for My Work presents an intellectual and social history of slave thought from the late antebellum era through Reconstruction, labor organizing in the 1930s and 1940s, the civil rights movement of the 1960s and 1970s, and the reparations movement of the twentyfirst century. Arguing that enslaved laborers thought for themselves, imagined themselves, and made themselves, and that their descendants have shared this moral legacy, Lynda Morgan offers an unprecedented view of African America.

“A truly excellent contribution that unearths new and largely unknown evidence about relationships between Puerto Ricans and AfricanAmericans and white Americans in the continental United States and Puerto Rico. Alamo-Pastrana revises how race is to be studied and understood across national, cultural, colonial, and hierarchical cultural relations.”—Zaire Zenit Dinzey-Flores, author of Locked In, Locked Out: Gated Communities in a Puerto Rican City

“Deftly unravels the complex historical interrelationships of race, color, class, economics, and environment in the Colonial Bahamas. An invaluable study for scholars who conduct comparative research on the British Caribbean.”—Rosalyn Howard, author of Black Seminoles in the Bahamas

Gregory Mixon “Mixon’s examination of black militias in post-emancipation Georgia and their fight for citizenship and equality provides a powerful and compelling portrait of the social revolution process at the grassroots level.”—Jeffrey R. Kerr-Ritchie, author of Freedom’s Seekers: Essays on Comparative Emancipation “Tells the story of the rise and fall of black militia units in Georgia during the post–Civil War era and highlights how black militia service symbolized citizenship, political activism, social standing, and the hope for a bright future for African Americans throughout the United States.”—Marcus S. Cox, author of Segregated Soldiers: Military Training at Historically Black Colleges in the Jim Crow South In Show Thyself a Man, Gregory Mixon explores the ways African Americans in postbellum Georgia used the militia as a vehicle to secure full citizenship, respect, and a more stable place in society. As citizen-soldiers, black men were empowered to get involved in politics, secure their own financial independence, and publicly commemorate black freedom with celebrations such as Emancipation Day. White Georgians, however, used the militia as a different symbol of freedom—to ensure the postwar white right to rule. This book is a forty-year history of black militia service in Georgia and the determined disbandment process that whites undertook to destroy it, connecting this chapter of the post-emancipation South to the larger history of militia participation by African-descendant people through the Western hemisphere and Latin America. GREGORY MIXON, associate professor of history at the University of North Carolina Charlotte, is the author of The Atlanta Riot: Race, Class, and Violence in a New South City.

Puerto Rico’s colonial relationship with the United States and its history of intermixture of native, African, and Spanish inhabitants has prompted inconsistent narratives about race and power in the colonial territory. Departing from these accounts, early twentieth-century writers, journalists, and activists scrutinized both Puerto Rico’s and the United States’s institutionalized racism and colonialism in an attempt to spur reform, leaving an archive of oft-overlooked political writings. In Seams of Empire, Carlos Alamo-Pastrana uses racial imbrication as a framework for reading this archive of little-known Puerto Rican, African American, and white American radicals and progressives, both on the island and the continental United States. By addressing the concealed power relations responsible for national, gendered, and class differences, this method of textual analysis reveals key symbolic and material connections between marginalized groups in both national spaces and traces the complexity of race, racism, and conflict on the edges of empire.

“Saunders is to be commended for a scholarly study that prominently features the nonwhite majority in the Bahamas—a group which usually has been overlooked.” —Whittington B. Johnson, author of PostEmancipation Race Relations in The Bahamas One of the British Empire’s most isolated and poorest colonies, the Bahamas has never quite seen itself as part of the British West Indies nor vice versa. Although the Bahamas had class tensions similar to those found in other British colonial lands, Gail Saunders shows that racial tensions did not necessarily parallel those across the West Indies so much as they mirrored those occurring in the United States—with political power and money consolidated in the hands of the white minority. Saunders argues that proximity to the United States and geographic isolation from the rest of the British colonies created a uniquely Bahamian interaction among racial groups. Focusing on the period from the 1880s to the 1960s, Saunders trains her lens on the nature of relations among groups including whites, people who identified as creole or mixed race, and liberated Africans. GAIL SAUNDERS is scholar-in-residence at The College of The Bahamas and former director of the National Archives of The Bahamas. She has also served as directorgeneral of heritage for the Bahamas Archives. She is author of several books, including Bahamian Society after Emancipation.

Indigenous Passages to Cuba, 1515–1900 Jason M. Yaremko

Afro-Politics and Civil Society in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil Kwame Dixon

“Portrays the vitality and dynamism of indigenous actors in what is arguably one of the most foundational and central zones in the making of modern world history: the Caribbean.”—Maximilian C. Forte, author of Ruins of Absence, Presence of Caribs “Brings together historical analysis and the compelling stories of individuals and families that labored in the island economies of the Caribbean.”—Cynthia Radding, coeditor of Borderlands in World History, 1700–1914 During the colonial period, thousands of North American Native peoples traveled to Cuba independently as traders, diplomats, missionary candidates, immigrants, or refugees; others were forcibly transported as captives, slaves, indentured laborers, or prisoners of war. Over the half millennium after Spanish contact, Cuba served as the principal destination and residence of peoples as diverse as the Yucatec Mayas of Mexico; the Calusa, Timucua, Creek, and Seminole peoples of Florida; and the Apache and Puebloan cultures of the northern provinces of New Spain. In this first history of the significant and diverse Amerindian presence in Cuba during and well beyond the early colonial period, Yaremko demonstrates the diverse, multifaceted, and dynamic nature of the indigenous diaspora in colonial Cuba. Acknowledging these groups’ role in geopolitical, diplomatic, economic, and diasporic processes, Yaremko argues that these migrants played an essential role in the historical development of Cuba. With case studies and documentation from various sites, Yaremko’s narrative presents a fuller history of Amerindian migration and diaspora in Cuba and the rest of Latin America. JASON M. YAREMKO, associate professor of history at the University of Winnipeg, is the author of U.S. Protestant Missions in Cuba.

“Powerfully illustrates that Bahia has a vibrant black political history worthy of documentation, re-centering the scholarship on race and politics to the northeast where the black population is the majority.”—Keisha-Khan Y. Perry, author of Black Women against the Land Grab “English-language work has rarely paid such attention to discourses in Afro-Brazilian communities on civil society inclusion and the process of democratization.”—Clarence Lusane, author of The Black History of the White House Brazil’s black population, one of the oldest and largest in the Americas, mobilized a vibrant antiracism movement from grassroots origins when the country transitioned from dictatorship to democracy in the 1980s. Campaigning for political equality after centuries of deeply engrained racial hierarchies, African-descended groups have been working to unlock democratic spaces that were previously closed to them. Using the city of Salvador as a case study, Kwame Dixon tracks the emergence of black civil society groups and their political projects: claiming new citizenship rights, testing new anti-discrimination and affirmative action measures, reclaiming rural and urban land, and increasing political representation. This book is one of the first to explore how Afro-Brazilians have influenced politics and democratic institutions in the contemporary period.

Darwin’s Man in Brazil The Evolving Science of Fritz Müller David A. West “A valuable introduction to Fritz Müller, a colorful and important figure in the story of natural history, but someone who has been seriously neglected by historians of science.”—Vassiliki Betty Smocovitis, author of Unifying Biology Fritz Müller (1821–1897), though not as well known as his colleague Charles Darwin, belongs in the cohort of great nineteenthcentury naturalists. In Darwin’s Man in Brazil, David A. West recovers Müller’s legacy. He describes the close intellectual kinship between Müller and Darwin, detailing a lively correspondence spanning seventeen years, in which the two men often discussed new research topics and exchanged ideas. Darwin frequently praised Müller’s powers of observation and interpretation, counting him among those scientists whose opinions he valued most. A free thinker who refused to sign the Christian oaths required of teachers in Prussia, Müller emigrated to Brazil in 1852 to become a pioneer farmer researching tropical biology. In the 1860s he reorganized his biological research in order to test Darwin’s theory of evolution. Conducting field studies to answer questions generated from a Darwinian perspective, Müller was unique among naturalists testing Darwin’s theory of natural selection because he investigated an enormous diversity of plants and animals rather than a relatively narrow range of taxa. Despite the importance and scope of his work, however, Müller is known for relatively few of his discoveries. West remedies this oversight, chronicling the life and work of this remarkable and overlooked man of science. DAVID A. WEST (1933–2015) was associate professor emeritus of biological sciences at Virginia Tech and the author of Fritz Müller: A Naturalist in Brazil.

The Invention of the Beautiful Game Football and the Making of Modern Brazil

Shaping Terrain

Simón Bolívar

City Building in Latin America

Travels and Transformations of a Cultural Icon

Edited by René C. Davids

Gregg Bocketti “Beautifully researched and engagingly told, this book captures the bitter conflicts and surprising continuities that marked the emergence of a national style in Brazil as it tells the story of the men and women who, despite their many differences, together created ‘the beautiful game.’”—Roger Kittleson, author of The Country of Football: Soccer and the Making of Modern Brazil In this cross-cutting cultural history, Gregg Bocketti traces the origins of soccer in Brazil from its elitist, Eurocentric identity as “football” at the end of the nineteenth century to its subsequent mythologization as the specifically Brazilian “futebol,” o jogo bonito (the beautiful game). Bocketti examines the sport and its narratives, which usually depict soccer as having evolved from a white elite pastime to an integral part of Brazil’s national identity known for its passion and creativity, and explains the ways that the popular history of the game has obscured many of the complexities and the continuities of the history of soccer and of Brazil. Mining a rich trove of sources, including contemporary sports journalism, archives of Brazilian soccer clubs, and British ministry records, and looking in detail at soccer’s effect on all parts of Brazilian society, Bocketti shows how important the sport is to an understanding of Brazilian nationalism and nation building in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

“Provides unique insights that are fundamental for anyone interested in the history and the architecture of Latin America.”—Fernando Luiz Lara, author of The Rise of Popular Modernist Architecture in Brazil Shaping Terrain shows how the physical landscape and local ecology have influenced human settlement and built form in Latin America since pre-Columbian times. Most urban centers and capitals of Latin American countries are situated on or near dramatically varied terrain, and this book explores the interplay between built works and their geographies in various cities including Bogotá, Caracas, Mendoza, Mexico D. F., Rio de Janeiro, Santiago de Chile, and Valparaíso. The multi-national contributors to Shaping Terrain have a broad range of professional experience as urbanists, historians, and architects, and many are globally renowned for their design work. They examine how humans negotiate with the existing environment and how the built form expresses that relationship. The result is a wide-ranging representation of the unique legacy of Latin America’s urban heritage, which is a repository of possibilities for future cities. RENÉ C. DAVIDS, professor of architecture and urban design at the University of California, Berkeley, and a principal of Davids Killory Architecture, is the coauthor of the AsBuilt series: Details, Technology, and Form; Detail in Process; and Details in Contemporary Architecture.

Edited by Maureen G. Shanahan and Ana María Reyes “Shows us how and why Simón Bolívar is still a major icon in Latin American culture. Cinema, politics, painting, literature, religion, and opera are all touched and marked by ‘El Libertador’ who is still very much an active force in Latin America.”—Efraín Barradas, author of Mente, Mirada, Mano: Visiones y Revisiones de La Obra de Lorenzo Homar “An indispensable resource for anyone interested in the myth and memory of Simón Bolívar.”—Sibylle Fischer, author of Modernity Disavowed: Haiti and the Cultures of Slavery in the Age of Revolution One of Latin America’s most famous historical figures, Simón Bolívar has become a mythic symbol for many nations, empires, and revolutions, used to support wildly diverse— sometimes opposite—ideas. From colonial Cuba to Nazi-occupied France to Soviet Slovenia, the image of “El Libertador” has served a range of political and cultural purposes. Here, an array of international and interdisciplinary scholars shows how Bolívar has appeared over the last two centuries in paintings, fiction, poetry, music, film, festivals, dance traditions, city planning, and even reliquary adoration. Whether exalted, reimagined, or fragmented, Bolívar’s body has taken on a range of different meanings to represent the politics and poetics of today’s national bodies. MAUREEN G.

“Impressive. It at once summarizes the state of medieval race studies and examines the field’s indebtedness to its nineteenth-century roots. Perhaps its most exciting contribution is that it posits the Middle Ages as a canvas upon which twentieth- and twenty-first century media paints in order to explore, in something like a safe space, our era’s concerns with phenotypic, religious, and cultural racialization.”—College Literature

“Focuses a sensitive eye on nine of Shaw’s dramas . . . to show how the dramatist strategically deployed gardens and libraries to convey meaning in a visual and compelling manner.” —Choice

Rosamond S. King Caribbean Studies Association Gordon K. and Sybil Lewis Prize “An ambitious project. . . . One of the first books to develop a framework that does not just acknowledge but actively thinks through the diverse desires, lives, and experiences of Caribglobal communities.”—H-Net “Whereas earlier works on Caribbean sexuality tend to be gender-specific, Rosamond King . . . explore[s] a range of identities and transgressive sexualities. . . . Gives us a new and richly nuanced reading of contemporary Caribbean culture.” —e-misférica “Interrogates years of oppression and shackling decorum in Caribbean sexual space with relentless acuity.”—Caribbean Beat “Outstanding. One of the best examinations of the dissonance between official sexual ideologies and actual social and cultural practices I have had the pleasure of reading.” —David William Foster, author of São Paulo: Perspectives on the City and Cultural Production “A thoughtful exploration of how Caribbean women and sexual minorities are at the center of a sexual revolution that refuses containment within Euro-American concepts of identity and sexuality.

“A provocative study of western racial attitudes. Ramey adds an important, likely controversial, and well-written scholarly challenge to the argument that racism in the West was the product of nineteenth-century science.”—Hamilton Cravens, coeditor of Race and Science “The significance of this book extends beyond the medieval past. Black Legacies shows that behind myths of knights in shining armor and fair maidens lies a contested literary and cultural history of medievalism that troubles understandings of race from the nineteenth century to today.”—Russ Castronovo, author of Beautiful Democracy Bringing far-removed time periods into startling conversation, this book argues that certain attitudes and practices present in Europe’s Middle Ages were foundational in the development of the western concept of race. LYNN T. RAMEY is associate professor of French at Vanderbilt University.

“Traces the playwright’s adept and varied deployment of two recurrent settings, the garden and the library, through nine major plays that span three decades, to demonstrate how meaningfully Shaw intertwines stage environment with the verbal pyrotechnics and discussion-based dramatic style for which he is so well known.”—Comparative Drama “Stafford’s approach is to provide close readings of Shaw’s stage directions as essential components of the plays as a whole, and he argues that the directions reveal that Shaw was a visual as well as a verbal artist. . . . Provide[s] valuable illumination.”—English Literature in Transition, 1880–1920 “Stafford’s analysis of the library-garden motif provides insight not only into individual plays but also into Shaw’s development as a playwright. . . . Makes a valuable contribution to Shaw studies and to the scholarship of modern drama through its thoughtful exploration of the convergences, divergences, and resonances of a well-chosen pair of settings.” —Text & Presentation TONY JASON STAFFORD, professor of English at the University of Texas at El Paso, is the editor of Shakespeare in the Southwest: Some New Directions.

Beneath the Ivory Tower The Archaeology of Academia Edited by Russell K. Skowronek and Kenneth E. Lewis “Thoughtfully demonstrates how campus-based archaeology projects can improve higher educational institutions’ preservation planning, encourage reflective discussions of institutional heritage, and provide engaging teaching opportunities that produce rigorous scholarship.”—Journal of Higher Education “Describes how archaeologists have used on-campus excavations to gain a better knowledge of academic life in previous centuries, to train students in archaeological techniques, and to foster a sense of a shared past among the numerous stakeholders on college campuses.”—Winterthur Portfolio “Illustrate[s] that many college and university campuses contain significant archaeological deposits relating not only to the institutions’ histories, but to the histories of the broader campus and local communities in the past and to the creation of history, meaning, and identity in the present.”—Southeastern Archaeology “An inspirational volume.”—Northeast Historical Archaeology RUSSELL K. SKOWRONEK, professor of anthropology and history at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, is coauthor or coeditor of several books including Pieces of Eight: More Archaeology of Piracy. KENNETH E. LEWIS, professor of anthropology at Michigan State University, is author of West to Far Michigan: Settling the Lower Peninsula, 1815– 1860 and Camden: Historical Archaeology in the South Carolina Backcountry.

New Histories of Pre-Columbian Florida

Everyday Life Matters Maya Farmers at Chan

Edited by Neill J. Wallis and Asa R. Randall

Cynthia Robin

“Provides an impressive array of the latest information and fresh perspectives on precolumbian Florida. . . . Its contributors innovatively engage new information in explaining how Native Americans fashioned their own histories.”—American Antiquity

“Cynthia Robin has brought together diverse theory, methods, and empirical data into a strong case for reconsidering how we view ancient commoners and their role in shaping their societies. . . . Robin’s central argument, that social reconstruction is flawed and incomplete without a thorough study of everyday life, is well-stated and timely.”—Journal of Anthropological Research

“Clearly evidence[s] the gains in understanding that recent research has won. . . . An exceptional resource.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “Situates the extremely rich archaeological materials of the Pre-Columbian Floridian peninsula into broader global discussions of monumentality, memory, seascapes, and maritime ritual processes.” —Journal of Island and Coastal Archaeology “Theoretically sophisticated and empirically well-grounded. Sets a course for exciting new directions in archaeology at the edge of the American South and the broader Caribbean world.”—Christopher B. Rodning, coeditor of Archaeological Studies of Gender in the Southeastern United States NEILL J. WALLIS is assistant curator in archaeology at the Florida Museum of Natural History and author of The Swift Creek Gift. ASA R. RANDALL is assistant professor of anthropology at the University of Oklahoma and author of Constructing Histories: Archaic Freshwater Shell Mounds and Social Landscapes of the St. Johns River, Florida. A volume in the Florida Museum of Natural History: Ripley P. Bullen Series

“A manifesto for the study of everyday life underpinned by an interpretive synthesis of the results of an eight-year project focused on a small farming community occupied c. 800 BC–AD 1200.”—Antiquity “Interesting perspectives and concrete examples from her fieldwork are woven loosely to her theoretical discussions with select comparative examples.”—Anthropos “An important contribution to the archaeological study of daily life. . . . Highly recommended.”—Choice “Clearly and sharply written, and by targeting the archaeology of everyday life as an emerging field explicitly, it identifies and fills a real void in the field.”—John Robb, author of The Early Mediterranean Village “An absolute must-read. Robin’s thorough understanding of commoners and how they occasionally interacted with elites provides a solid foundation for social reconstruction.” —Payson Sheets, coeditor of Surviving Sudden Environmental Change CYNTHIA ROBIN, associate professor of anthropology at Northwestern University, is the editor of Chan: An Ancient Maya Farming Community.

Kosher Feijoada and Other Paradoxes of Jewish Life in São Paulo

The Migration of Peoples from the Caribbean to the Bahamas

Creole City

Misha Klein

Keith L. Tinker

Nathalie Dessens

“Shines a light on one of São Paulo’s large and important minority communities, and it does so with grace and respect. Klein treats her human subjects with sensitivity.” —Ethnohistory

“Spotlights the islands’ aboriginal inhabitants, their destruction at the hands of Spanish explorers, how loyalist Americans helped shape the Bahamian nationstate, and the even more consequential implications of British rule. . . . Argues for an evolving Bahamian identity that is shifting from notions of superiority to an embrace of its West Indian immigrant roots. . . . Highly recommended.” —Choice

“Provides fresh insights into the ways that New Orleans was tied to the larger Atlantic world.” —Ashli White, author of Encountering Revolution

“Treat[s] the themes here included with anthropological rigor and balanced humor . . . a stimulating study.”—Shofar “Klein’s personal accounts are very entertaining and informative, as she has a sharp and ethnographic eye and writes with an easy sense of humor about all of the difficulties and concessions of being Jewish in São Paulo. . . . Klein underscores quite rightly that one of the most outstanding characteristics of Brazilian Jews is their Brazilianness.”—Chasqui “Kosher Feijoada—which touches, among very many other topics, on the ways Jewish Brazilians have incorporated and adapted elements of Brazilian food—is a welcome addition to the historiography.”—Latin American Research Review “A universal proof of how ethnic and national identities may be intrinsically linked.”—Ethnic and Racial Studies “An important starting point for a new sensitivity to identities that may reorganize the field of Jewish studies in Brazil with new questions, new themes, new sources, and new problems.”—H-Net MISHA KLEIN is associate professor of anthropology at the University of Oklahoma. A volume in the series New World Diasporas, edited by Kevin A. Yelvington

Anthropology/Ethnography May 270 pp. | 6 x 9

“A remarkably insightful exploration of a history of colonially encouraged distrust and politically motivated uneven development.” —Caribbean Quarterly “Makes a significant contribution to Bahamian historiography on migration by extending the discussion on patterns of West Indian migration to the Bahamas.”—Florida Historical Quarterly “Shows the historical depth of these connections as well as the circumstances and implications of migration into the later 20th century, thereby setting the stage for contemporary understandings of regional and national identities.”—African Diaspora Archaeology Newsletter “Creatively drawing on documentary sources and oral histories, Tinker offers invaluable insights into the social, political, and economic forces that have helped shape the history of West Indian migrations to the Bahamas.” —Frederick H. Smith, author of Caribbean Rum KEITH L. TINKER, a native Bahamian, is director of the National Museum of the Bahamas and adjunct professor of Caribbean history at the College of the Bahamas.

A Chronicle of Early American New Orleans

“Reveals a vanished world of transatlantic circuits, interracial families, politics and property, even ethnic rivalries—but most of all, the resilience, adaptability, and hard times of SaintDomingue exiles whom revolution and war on two continents had cast ashore in New Orleans.”—Lawrence N. Powell, author of The Accidental City In Creole City, Nathalie Dessens opens a window onto antebellum New Orleans during a period of rapid expansion and dizzying change, examining how the cosmopolitan city came to symbolize progress, adventure, and culture to so many. Rooting her exploration in the Sainte-Gême Family Papers harbored at The Historic New Orleans Collection, Dessens follows the twenty-year correspondence of Jean Boze to Henri de Ste-Gême, both refugees from Saint-Domingue. The letters chronicle the convergence and merging of cultural attitudes as new arrivals and old colonial populations collide, sparking transformations in the economic, social, and political structures of the city. NATHALIE DESSENS, professor of American history at the University of Toulouse-Jean Jaurès, is the author of Myths of the Plantation Society: Slavery in the American South and the West Indies and From Saint-Domingue to New Orleans: Migration and Influences.

Black Power in Dixie

To Render Invisible

Cuba in a Global Context

A Political History of African Americans in Atlanta

Jim Crow and Public Life in New South Jacksonville

International Relations, Internationalism, and Transnationalism

Alton Hornsby Jr.

Robert Cassanello

Edited by Catherine Krull

“Succeeds masterfully in synthesizing a vast array of secondary and primary sources into a highly readable account of black politics in Atlanta.”—American Historical Review

Florida Historical Society Harry T. and Harriette V. Moore Award

“This deeply researched work makes a crucial contribution to southern and African American history.”—Journal of American History “[A] richly detailed account of the problems and successes of Atlanta’s African American leaders.”—Choice “Offers a revealing genealogy of a politically active black community and the complex political machinery of one of the South’s most important cities.”—Journal of African American History “Examines the rise of black political power in Atlanta, Georgia, from 1867 to 1900. . . . Makes an important contribution to the vital field of postwar black freedom struggles.”—Journal of Southern History “Relates how Atlanta’s African Americans insisted on determined betterment for themselves in city services, voting rights and education—despite the overarching power wielded by whites in the southern caste system. . . . Hornsby . . . has distilled a lifetime of distinguished work and his own experience into this study of dissent politics from the black side of Atlanta.”—Georgia Historical Quarterly ALTON HORNSBY JR. is the Fuller E.

“An eclectic collection. . . . Offers refreshing new perspectives on Cuba’s global impact since 1959.” —International Affairs

“A valuable, competently researched study of an important and oft-neglected southern community at a key time in its development.” —Journal of American History “Throws into bold relief the history of Jacksonville between the end of the Civil War and World War I, when former slaves and masters struggled to create a new equilibrium in politics and society.”—Florida Times-Union “An important contribution to our understanding of the development of legal segregation and the black public sphere.”—Journal of African American History “Creatively combines an analysis of the public sphere with an exploration of the Jim Crow South.”—Journal of Southern History “Interestingly applies theories of urban public space from scholars like Jürgen Habermas to Jacksonville and offers a new interpretation of its New South racial experience.”—Historian “Offers a valuable look at the shift from postwar access to Jim Crow exclusion in public life in a fairly typical southern city. It reveals how segregation was not the immediate result of slavery, nor an inevitable outcome.”—H-Net “A timely reminder that blacks in the South were by no means passive bystanders during Reconstruction.”—Florida Courier ROBERT CASSANELLO is associate professor of history at the University of Central Florida. He is coeditor of Florida’s Working-Class Past: Current Perspectives on Labor, Race, and Gender from Spanish Florida to the New Immigration.

History/African American May 192 pp. | 6 x 9 | 14 b/w photos

“Provides a range of international and interdisciplinary perspectives on the position of Cuba economically, politically and culturally in the globalising world of the early twentieth century. The list of contributors reads like a roll call of the giants of Cuba scholarship over the past 30 years. . . . A fine collection.” —International Journal of Cuban Studies “It is useful to have so many thoughts under one cover on such a variety of Cuba-related topics.”—Journal of Latin American Studies “Krull has assembled an impressive array of international scholars to examine Cuba’s impact on international relations.”—Mervyn Bain, author of Russian-Cuban Relations since 1992 “An anthology of insightful essays that outruns the information blockade on Cuba.” —Ricardo A. Dello Buono, coeditor of Cuba in the Twenty-First Century Contributors to this volume from both inside and outside the island explore the myriad ways in which it has assumed a geopolitical role of unlikely prominence in Latin America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. The role of Cubans working to assert their sovereignty has undoubtedly, as this volume demonstrates, impacted every corner of the globe.

Tom Petty was only one of many Gainesville teens that watched the Beatles on television that February night in 1964, but the difference was Petty acted almost immediately. ‘Within twenty-four hours, everything changed. I wanted a group. I set about scouring the neighborhoods for anybody that owned instruments, that could play instruments.’ He located a few neighborhood kids with similar interests who gathered at his house, plugged into the one guitar amplifier, chose a song they all knew, and began to play. This sound, he recalled, was the biggest rush of his life. They were making the music. FROM MUSIC EVERYWHERE, P. 1 Photo by William “Red” Slater
