FLORIDA QUINCENTENNIAL BOOKS In April 1513, Juan Ponce de León arrived on Florida’s east coast. He led the first European exploration of southern North America and is responsible for naming the peninsula La Florida. While our state’s geologic history is approximately 700 million years old and its material history dates back more than 12,000 years to the American Indians who first lived here, the Spanish arrival in La Florida marked a new era. The peoples and cultures that came together under Florida’s first flag laid the groundwork for what would eventually become the United States. Under the French, British, Confederate, and American flags that followed, Florida became home to many: Protestant Huguenots and Jewish Americans, Black Seminoles and WWII veterans, mermaids and martyrs of the Civil Rights movement.



Beginning in 2013, celebrations like Viva Florida 500 have been commemorating the arrival of Ponce de León in La Florida and recognizing the many diverse cultures that comprise our state and impact its rich history. These ceremonies will continue into 2015, the 450th anniversary of the founding of St. Augustine, the oldest continuously occupied European-established city in the continental United States. Joining in the celebration of these significant milestones and honoring the people, places, and unique history of our state, the University Press of Florida is pleased to designate the Florida history and culture titles published in 2013–2015 as Florida Quincentennial Books. Look for these books in the following pages and celebrate with us. 1971–Today



Everglades America's Wetland Mac Stone Foreword by Michael Grunwald

Stunning images of an American treasure “Fervent and stirring.”—David Yarnold, president and CEO, National Audubon Society “Everglades takes us into the lives of elusive species living far from the boardwalks and tourist trails. With the mind of a scientist, eyes of an artist, and the heart of an adventurer, Stone bears witness to the unrivaled beauty of America’s wetland.”—Carlton Ward Jr., author of Florida Cowboys “What Mac Stone has done in pictures is akin to what Marjory Stoneman Douglas did with words, and our understanding and appreciation of the Everglades has once again been transformed.”—John Moran, author of Journal of Light

Photography/Nature/Conservation September

Aerial photographs capture the vast expanse of the River of Grass, and underwater images reveal the unseen wonders of the Everglades, such as juvenile sharks hunting through mangrove roots. Intimate close-ups highlight awe-inspiring flora and fauna, including the ghost orchid, the Florida panther, the endangered Everglades snail kite, roseate spoonbills, and the enigmatic American alligator. As a biologist for the National Audubon Society, Stone traveled to the most remote areas of the Everglades to collect these images. With his camera, he explored Everglades National Park, Corkscrew Swamp, Fisheating Creek, and dozens of sites that few are permitted to visit. His stunning photographs celebrate the innumerable facets of this ecological marvel while speaking to the importance of wilderness conservation and the need to protect this irreplaceable wetland. With exclusive essays from the top minds in Everglades conservation opening an even wider perspective on Stone’s powerful photographs, Everglades provides a rare glimpse at the world’s most famous wetland.

Surrounded by water on three sides with an inland maze of lakes, rivers, streams, and springs, Florida has a fishing culture unlike any other state and with it comes an abundance of delectable recipes. Following their awardwinning Field to Feast, Pam Brandon, Katie Farmand, and Heather McPherson traversed the state to savor the largess of the state’s countless waterways and bring these distinctly Floridian recipes from the sea to your table.

The Versailles Restaurant Cookbook Ana Quincoces and Nicole Valls Foreword by Andy García

The heart of Cuban food and culture “One sip of their Cuban coffee will keep you up for a week, which is perfect—that way you can have their delicioso desayuno every day.”—Sunny Anderson, Food Network “Now—finally—this wonderful collection of insightful stories and priceless recipes . . . Qué maravilla!”—John Quiñones, ABC News “If you haven’t tasted Versailles, you don’t know Miami.”—Pamela Silva Conde, Univision “How brilliant to be able to take Versailles home!”—Daisy Olivera, former Miami Herald columnist “What is a trip to Miami without a Cuban sandwich from this Little Havana landmark?”—Chef Art Smith For over four decades, Versailles Restaurant has been the heart of the CubanAmerican community in Miami. Presidents, politicians, and pop stars routinely stop in for a meal and a photo op. When rumors surfaced that Fidel Castro was ill, the streets around the restaurant became impassable with revelers and news trucks jockeying for position. Versailles has been featured on the Food Network, the Travel Channel, and CNN, and it was named by TIME as one of the top ten places to visit in Miami. Ask the die-hard patrons of Versailles why it is their favorite restaurant for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a post-party snack at 2 a.m., and they’ll tell you they keep coming back for the tortilla (potato omelet), the plantain chips with mojo, the croquettes, the moros (mixed black beans and rice), and the rabo encendido (oxtail stew). These flavorful recipes have been passed down through the Valls family for generations; they are the traditional dishes abuela used to make.

Conservative Hurricane How Jeb Bush Remade Florida Matthew T. Corrigan

A force to be reckoned with “A timely reminder that Jeb Bush was and remains a deep-dyed conservative who was not reluctant to magnify and use all the powers of his office.”—Martin A. Dyckman, author of Reubin O’D. Askew and the Golden Age of Florida Politics “A detailed look at how Jeb Bush used enhanced constitutional executive powers, the first unified Republican state government elected to Tallahassee, and the force of his own personality and intellect to enact significant conservative political and policy changes in Florida.”—Aubrey Jewett, coauthor of Politics in Florida, Third Edition Against the backdrop of the Tea Party–dominated GOP, former Florida governor Jeb Bush may appear comparatively moderate, but his record tells a different story. In Conservative Hurricane, Matthew Corrigan probes beyond the mild veneer, the sound bites, and the photo ops to examine the real evidence of Bush’s political leanings—his policies, politics, and legacy as the state’s most powerful governor. Biography/Political November A Florida Quincentennial Book 256 pp. | 6 x 9 ISBN 978-0-8130-6045-3 | Cloth $26.95

After remaking himself from a strident ideologue into a restrained conservative policy wonk, Bush became Florida’s first two-term Republican governor. The smallgovernment conservative—who in his second inaugural address dreamed of an idyllic Tallahassee free of government employees—was unstoppable. He presided over the largest accumulation of executive branch authority in the state’s history and advanced a multitude of social and economic reforms, the effects of which are still felt in the Sunshine State today. It was the beginning of a new kind of conservative activism, one that has only gained strength in the years since Bush left office. From the culture wars to the management of state government, Corrigan examines the governor’s indelible mark on Florida. He demonstrates how the issues most closely associated with Bush’s leadership, including education reform, end-of-life decisions, and gun rights, would guide Republican governors in other states as they rode the rising tide of conservative populism.

Matthew T. Corrigan is chair and professor of political science at the University of North Florida. He is the author of several books, including Race, Religion, and Economic Change in the Republican South and American Royalty: The Bush and Clinton Families and the Danger to the American Presidency.

For anyone curious about a potential Jeb Bush presidency, this book is required reading. A volume in the Florida Government and Politics series, edited by David R. Colburn and Susan A. MacManus

Making Sense of Marshall Ledbetter The Dark Side of Political Protest Daniel M. Harrison

Prankster turned mental patient, student turned capitol invader “A compelling look at a significant but little-known incident in Florida history, one that turned out to be a precursor to the Occupy movement.”—Craig Pittman, author of The Scent of Scandal “I could not put down this book. It’s a must-read for anyone interested in psychology, drug and alcohol addiction, the complicated chemistry of the human body, and—oddly—local politics.”—George Singleton, author of Between Wrecks “Was this a courageous act of protest or a sad act of madness? This fascinating book explores the line between inspiration and insanity. The case of Marshall Ledbetter is humorous, chilling, and an important story to tell.”—Gary Alan Fine, coauthor of Whispers on the Color Line “Going beyond the pat answers of mental illness, drug abuse, or youthful pranksterism, Harrison shows that these elements were far from the whole story.” —Chad Alan Goldberg, author of Citizens and Paupers

After an eight-hour standoff, Ledbetter was betrayed by the very media he had counted on to tell his story; his demands were not broadcast on CNN as he had been promised but streamed into the office on closed-circuit TV. Although he left the building peacefully, the ensuing trial, his trips in and out of the state’s mental health institutions over the following decade, and his eventual suicide in 2003 speak to how difficult it is to untangle addiction, isolation, brilliance, and deviance.

Armed with an empty whiskey bottle and wearing a tie-dyed Jimi Hendrix T-shirt, Florida State University dropout Marshall Ledbetter broke into the Florida State Capitol early one morning in June 1991. He occupied the Sergeant at Arms suite, demanding an extra-large Gumby’s pizza and 666 donuts for the cops waiting outside. He hoped to garner media attention for his protest of poverty, homelessness, and cuts to higher education.

Ledbetter’s invasion of the capitol remains the biggest security breach of the building’s history, but Daniel Harrison’s telling of the Ledbetter saga is about more than one misguided young man’s breaking and entering into the state’s most secure building. Making Sense of Marshall Ledbetter thoughtfully and honestly explores the ways society manages deviant people in real world situations and whether or not our law enforcement and justice systems are adequately equipped to handle mental illness. Daniel Harrison is associate professor of sociology at Lander University.

Rebel on Pointe A Memoir of Ballet and Broadway Lee Wilson

Defying the '50s in pink satin pointe shoes “The culture of the ballet world is divulged in all its glorious detail. Wilson’s compelling account of her training and career shows the true courage and persistence this profession requires.”—Ali Duffy, founder and choreographer, Flatlands Dance Theatre “Lee brings to her writing the same keen intelligence she brought to her dancing. It is a joy to relive some of the important moments of ballet history with her, and to empathize with her as she uses her dance career to gain the independence and freedom she perceived as lacking for women like her mother, only one generation earlier.”—Maina Gielgud, former director, The Australian Ballet “Touching and beautiful; Lee Wilson is an inspiration to us all for finding a passion in life and moving beyond familial pressures and societal norms.”—Zippora Karz, former soloist, New York City Ballet

Lee Wilson danced for Prince Rainier and Princess Grace in Monte Carlo, guntoting revolutionaries in Algeria, American aristocrats at the Metropolitan Opera, and a galaxy of stars on Broadway. She is an award-winning writer, producer, and actor living in Los Angeles.

Short, plump, pigeon-toed, and never good enough for mom, Lee Wilson dared to dream she could grow up to be a star. In this uplifting memoir, Wilson describes how she grand jetéd from the stifling suburbia of the 1950s, a world of rigid gender roles, to the only domain where women and men were equally paid and equally respected—in grand, historic dance theaters and under the bright lights of the Broadway stage. At the age of sixteen, Wilson made her classical ballet debut in Monte Carlo. Eight months later, she thrilled to the sound of her first bravos—and she never looked back. After touring Europe and dancing with the Metropolitan Opera Ballet in New York, she set her sights on Broadway, where she danced in many Broadway shows, including Hello Dolly! and the record-breaking performance of A Chorus Line. Rebel on Pointe immerses the reader in a remarkable and visionary world. It lifts the veil of myth surrounding legendary dance icons like George Balanchine to reveal the real men and women who have made American dance and dancers an international phenomenon. Wilson expertly depicts how her profession—at times considered so rigid and exacting—was a leading force in the liberation of women from the prison of post-war society. The hard-won gains and the maddening setbacks of the gender revolution are seen here through the eyes of a young dancer searching for freedom one “pas” at a time.

Mary Ann Carroll First Lady of the Highwaymen Gary Monroe

Beach scenes on hotel walls, Poinciana trees in the White House “Here, Monroe tells perhaps his most compelling tale of all—about the only Highwaywoman, Mary Ann Carroll.” —Jeff Klinkenberg, author of Alligators in B-Flat “A tale of triumph, personal survival, discipline, and, finally, of faith.”—Linda Hudson, mayor, Fort Pierce, Florida “Monroe captures the essence of the Highwaymen’s art, Mary Ann Carroll’s life, and the entrepreneurial spirit that helped her succeed in a racially-charged environment.” —Tom Wagor, president, Marco Island Historical Society In the years since the art world discovered them, much has been made of the Highwaymen—the loosely knit band of African American painters whose edenic Florida landscapes, created with inexpensive materials and sold out of their cars, “shaped the state’s popular image as much as oranges and alligators” (New York Times). But lost in the legends surrounding the group is the intriguing story of Mary Ann Carroll, the only female “Highwayman.”

In 1957, sixteen-year-old Carroll met Harold Newton, later dubbed the original Highwayman. He had red flames on his car and was painting a landscape along the side of the road. The young African American girl was shocked: here was a black man who didn’t work in the orange groves and who made a living off his paintings. It wasn’t long before she was creating and selling her own landscapes, and the other Highwaymen, taking note of her startling use of color, welcomed her into the fold. Carroll sold her first painting at eighteen—remarkable for any young artist, unheard of for a black woman artist in the South. Like her Highwaymen brethren, she travelled across the state, selling her art at hotels, offices, and restaurants where she was not allowed to drink, eat, or even sit. If the Highwaymen faced discrimination at every door they knocked on, then the challenges were magnified for Carroll. She took pride in always having her pristine Buick gassed and ready to go and her small handgun cleaned and ready to use. After years of virtual obscurity, Carroll was invited to the First Lady’s Luncheon in 2011, where she presented a painting of her iconic poinciana to Michelle Obama. Mary Ann Carroll is the never-before-told story of the artist’s hard-fought journey to provide for her family and make a name for herself in a man’s world.

Gary Monroe, professor of fine arts and photography at Daytona State College, is the author of numerous books, including The Highwaymen: Florida’s African-American Landscape Painters, The Highwaymen Murals: Al Black’s Concrete Dreams, and Harold Newton: The Original Highwayman.

The theme is football, but the threads Dorsey pursues demand a larger stage.”—Randy Wayne White, author of the Doc Ford novels

For the young men of Dunbar—the low-income, historically segregated neighborhoods of Fort Myers, Florida—avoiding the path that leads to easy money as a drug dealer often means choosing complete devotion to football and dreams of NFL stardom. While such dreams remain out of reach for most, an astonishing number of Dunbar athletes, including NFL idols Deion Sanders, Jevon Kearse, and Earnest Graham, have achieved massive success. Fourth Down in Dunbar is the story of how one community, plagued by drugs and violence, where many children are fatherless, gave rise to so many stellar youth athletes. Using Sanders as the centerpiece of the story, David Dorsey explores Dunbar’s history to show how the same drug culture that ruined so many promising futures also served as motivation for football success. As a reporter for the Fort Myers News-Press, Dorsey had exclusive access to the players and their relatives. He shows the success of the wildly talented as well as the regrets of those who took the wrong path, while highlighting hope for the future of Dunbar. In this poignant tale of heartbreak and triumph, Dorsey reveals the true nature of these men who overcame the obstacles in their lives and made their families and their hometown proud.

The Scent of Scandal Greed, Betrayal, and the World’s Most Beautiful Orchid Craig Pittman

Some people will do anything for beauty or fame 2012 Florida Book Awards, Silver Medal for Florida Nonfiction

“Reading this book is like watching a car wreck in slow-motion: you know what’s going to happen but you can’t look away . . . the book focuses on what happens when greed, betrayal and obsession collide with national and international laws designed to protect natural resources from over-exploitation.”—The Guardian “A story with as many twists and turns as Hammett’s ‘Maltese Falcon,’ and just about the same amount of greed, jealousy, backstabbing and subterfuge.” —Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Fascinating . . . one of the most entertaining orchid books to come along in years.”—Richmond Times-Dispatch “Takes readers on a wild globetrotting trek . . . Pittman introduces a large cast of eccentric, flower-crazed characters who have seemingly stepped out of an ‘Indiana Jones’ flick, hunting the Holy Grail of orchids.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel

This book is a must for anyone who cares about the animals whose environment we share.”—Bob Mudge, Venice Gondolier Sun “An informative and entertaining introduction to Florida’s unique and varied wildlife, with a focus on the conservation issues facing the animals and birds of Florida.”—Jeff Miller, Conservation Advocate, Center for Biological Diversity “These delightful stories of personal encounters with Florida wildlife allow readers to imagine or reminisce about their own wildlife adventures. They encourage exploration. Both new-to-Florida and long-time residents will enjoy this book.” —Cris Costello, Regional Organizer for the Sierra Club

Larry Allan, a writer and photographer specializing in the wildlife of North America, is the recipient of the Sierra Club’s Ansel Adams Award. His photographs have appeared in Audubon, American Photo, Defenders, and many other magazines. He has also illustrated both the Wildcats and Wild Canines of North America book series.

Did you know fawns have no scent, an evolutionary defense against predators? And that the eastern grey squirrel is a formidable swimmer, which makes them quite suited for the Sunshine State? And that, unlike other avians, Florida scrub jay families stay together for years, with older siblings helping to feed younger siblings? Florida Animals for Everyday Naturalists contains everything you want to know about Florida’s furry, feathered, scaled, and shelled friends. With lively personal essays and stunning photographs, Larry Allan introduces you to the array of wildlife you might encounter in your backyard, at the park, or on a jaunt at one of the state’s many wildlife refuges. Each chapter is dedicated to a specific animal, like the bobcat, the river otter, and the caracara, and paired with vivid photos to help you identify these creatures in the wild. Allan’s fascination with Florida fauna is contagious, and his reverence of nature is unmistakable. While sharing his whimsical, enlightening, and instructive anecdotes, he gently argues for wildlife preservation in Florida and for responsible humananimal interactions. Perfect for young naturalists, inquisitive trekkers through the Sunshine State, or armchair adventurers, this book will help you appreciate the abundance of life right outside your door.

Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens James A. Kushlan and Kirsten Hines

A comprehensive guide for gardeners and birders “South Florida is a unique and spectacular environment for both birding and gardening and this is a thorough and enjoyable guide.”—Carl Lewis, director, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden “No space is too small for helping birds, and this book tells you how to do it.” —Stephen D. Pearson, director, University of Miami’s John C. Gifford Arboretum “For all South Floridians concerned about vanishing stopover habitat and hoping to contribute to the re-greening of Florida in their own backyards, this book is essential reading.”—Brian Rapoza, author of Birding Florida Lush and warm, South Florida is a gardener’s dream and a birder’s delight. Yet despite the region’s hospitable climate and verdancy, specific plants and special care are required to attract the birds that breed, winter, or migrate through the region. Drawing on their many years of creating bird habitats in South Florida, James Kushlan and Kirsten Hines offer practical, ecologically sound advice for creating gardens that will provide fruit, flowers, insects, and shelter for birds throughout the year. Their invaluable tips on selecting bird-friendly plants and on identifying which birds to attract are suitable for small balcony gardens, suburban yards, or rural acreage. They also suggest ways to incorporate charming water features and other bird-attracting elements into the landscape, as well as how to simplify garden maintenance.

Because references that cover the United States or Florida as a whole do not adequately address the needs of this distinctive region, Attracting Birds to South Florida Gardens fills a conspicuous void in the literature on the two most popular hobbies in America, gardening and birding. With brilliant photographs of plants and birds, this volume is essential for first-time or expert gardeners, homeowners or commercial landscapers, and novice or experienced birders seeking to create bird-friendly landscapes and restore ecological health to the area.

Fishing for Spotted Seatrout From the Carolinas to Texas Jan S. Maizler

Throw this book in your tackle box and catch a spotted warrior “Despite having fished seatrout for years, I hadn’t any idea how much I didn’t know until I read Maizler’s definitive new work on the species.”—Doug Olander, editor in chief, Sport Fishing Magazine “Maizler’s name has been inexorably linked to seatrout for decades. This book is an overdue, welcome, and essential addition to our angling literature. Kudos to the master!”—Glenn Law, executive editor, Salt Water Sportsman Magazine “From seatrout habits to state-by-state seatrout fishing techniques, Maizler covers everything one needs to know with regard to becoming a successful angler for this popular species.”—Tommy L. Thompson, author of The Saltwater Angler’s Guide to Tampa Bay and Southwest Florida Known as “everyman’s fish,” the spotted seatrout is one of the top ten species for recreational fishing in the United States.

In Fishing for Spotted Seatrout, Jan Maizler, a world-renowned light tackle expert, shares more than 30 years’ experience and innovative tactics for catching this popular fish in its range from the Carolinas to Texas. For beginners, he offers an overview of the unique characteristics and habits of the spotted seatrout. For veteran fishermen, he presents an in-depth analysis of the different tackle, baits, techniques, and tidal conditions for achieving the best catches. A chapter on weather and season will help ensure angling success, regardless of conditions the calendar brings. Maizler discusses chumming—a technique widely applied in other fisheries but mostly unknown for seatrout—and recommends the paddleboard, the newest vessel for hunting the spotted king. He also explores region-specific practices like wading, prevalent in Texas, and trolling live shrimp, common in Biloxi Marsh, and argues that their use can and should extend beyond these regions. Moreover, he demonstrates how to apply these new techniques on your next fishing expedition. Covering every aspect of angling for this magnificent gamefish, Maizler’s comprehensive guide belongs on your bookshelf and in your tackle bag.

The Peace of Blue Water Journeys Bill Belleville

Explore the waters, reflect on the poetry of nature, discover yourself “Away from the strip malls and the sprawl, the theme parks and the resorts, the waters of Florida are a secret blue world of wonders. Belleville’s beautiful new book takes you with him on (and sometimes under) the rivers and springs, lakes and marshes and seas of this most liquid of states.”—Diane Roberts, author of Dream State: Eight Generations of Swamp Lawyers, Conquistadors, Confederate Daughters, Banana Republicans, and Other Florida Wildlife “Eloquent. Belleville’s passion and curiosity invigorate us and challenge us to rediscover the world as if for the first time.”—Ann Fisher-Wirth, coeditor of The Ecopoetry Anthology “Belleville reminds us of the fragile nature of our springs, rivers, lakes, beaches, and shorelines while always celebrating their beauty. This book, combining the best of Henry David Thoreau and Rachel Carson, is a necessary addition to every bookshelf.”—Steve Noll, coauthor of Ditch of Dreams The Earth’s surface is mostly oceans, the human body is approximately 60% water, and the human imagination has been captivated by this life-giving, life-sustaining liquid from time immemorial.


According to Carl Hiaasen, Bill Belleville “writes gorgeously and straight from the heart.” In The Peace of Blue, the documentarian and nature writer guides you on a lyrical journey to the natural places in Florida and the Caribbean that have been forged and shaped by water. He poetically affirms the vitality of this most essential substance in our lives by showing the many ways in which water-driven landscapes nurture plants, wildlife—and the human spirit.

William B. Lees and Frederick P. Gaske “A comprehensive examination of the ways in which the wartime service and sacrifice of Floridians has been memorialized from the Reconstruction Era through the present. A valuable contribution to the subject of Civil War Memory.”—David J. Coles, coeditor of A Yankee Horseman in the Shenandoah Valley “A complete guide. The authors locate every Civil War monument in Florida and explain their symbolism.”—Daniel Schafer, author of Thunder on the River: The Civil War in Northeast Florida One hundred and fifty years ago, Florida was shaken by battle, blockade, economic deprivation, and the death of native sons both within and far outside its borders. Today, tributes to the valor and sacrifice of Florida’s soldiers, sailors, and civilians can be found from the Panhandle to the Keys. Authors William B. Lees and Frederick P. Gaske look at the diversity of Civil War monuments built in Florida between Reconstruction and the present day, elucidating their emblematic and social dimensions. Most monuments built in Florida honor the Confederacy, praising the valor of Southern soldiers and often extolling the righteousness of their “Lost Cause.” At the same time, a fascinating minority of Union monuments also exists in the state—and these bear notably muted messages. Recalling Deeds Immortal shows how the creation of these bronze and stone monuments created new social battlegrounds as, over the years, groups such as the Ladies’ Memorial Associations, United Daughters of the Confederacy, and the Grand Army of the Republic competed to control the messages behind the memorialization of fallen soldiers and veterans. Examining the evolution of Civil War monuments, the authors demonstrate that the construction of these memorials is itself an important part of Civil War and post–Civil War history. William B. Lees is director of the Florida Public Archaeology Network at the University of West Florida. Frederick P. Gaske is coauthor of the Florida Civil War Heritage Trail.

Origins of the Dream

Spies and Shuttles

Hughes’s Poetry and King’s Rhetoric

NASA’s Secret Relationships with the DoD and CIA

W. Jason Miller

James E. David

“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 in the scholarship on both Hughes and King.”—Lewis V. Baldwin, author of There Is a Balm in Gilead: The Cultural Roots of Martin Luther King, Jr.

“David reveals the long, complicated, and fascinating relationship between NASA, the Department of Defense, and the intelligence community.”—Jeffrey T. Richelson, author of Defusing Armageddon

“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

“A pioneering work. David has performed a herculean task by pulling together for the first time hundreds of formerly classified documents to tell the fascinating story of NASA’s intimate and extremely sensitive relations with the CIA and other branches of the intelligence community over the past fifty-plus years.” —Matthew M. Aid, author of Intel Wars: The Secret History of the Fight Against Terror

“Archival material is spotlighted in Miller’s exporation 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) Since Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech, some scholars have privately suspected that King’s “dream” was connected to Langston Hughes’s poetry. Drawing on archival materials, including notes, correspondence, and marginalia, W. Jason Miller provides a completely original and compelling argument that Hughes’s influence on King’s rhetoric was, in fact, evident in more than just the one famous speech. King’s staff had been wiretapped by J. Edgar Hoover and suffered accusations of communist influence, so quoting or naming the leader of the Harlem Renaissance—who had his own reputation as a communist—would only have intensified the threats against the civil rights activist. Thus, the link was purposefully veiled through careful allusions in King’s orations. In Origins of the Dream, Miller lifts that veil and shows how Hughes’s revolutionary poetry became a measurable inflection in King’s voice. He contends that by employing Hughes’s metaphors in his speeches, King negotiated a political climate that sought to silence the poet’s subversive voice. By separating Hughes’s identity from his poems, King helped the nation unconsciously embrace the incendiary ideas behind his poetry. W. Jason Miller is associate professor of English at North Carolina State University. He is the author of Langston Hughes and American Lynching Culture.

“Casts light on a hitherto deeply shadowed portion of America’s spaceflight history.”—Rick W. Sturdevant, deputy director of history, USAF Space Command at Peterson AFB In this real life spy saga, James E. David reveals the extensive and largely hidden interactions between NASA and U.S. defense and intelligence departments. The story begins with the establishment of NASA in 1958 and follows the agency through its growth, not only in scope but also in complexity. In Spies and Shuttles, David digs through newly declassified documents to ultimately reveal how NASA became a strange bedfellow to the Department of Defense (DoD) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). He tracks NASA’s early cooperation—supplying cover stories for covert missions, analyzing the Soviet space program, providing weather and other scientific data from its satellites, and monitoring missile tests—that eventually devolved into NASA’s reliance on DoD for political and financial support for the Shuttle. David also examines the restrictions imposed on such activities as photographing Earth from space and the intrusive review mechanisms created to ensure compliance. The ties between NASA and the intelligence community have historically remained unexplored, and David’s riveting book is the first to investigate the twists and turns of this labyrinthine relationship. James E. David is curator in the Division of Space History at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.

Revolutionary Cuba

Now in Paper

A History

Africa in Florida

Luis Martínez-Fernández “Remarkable. 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 This is the first book in more than three decades to offer a complete and chronological history of revolutionary Cuba, including the years of rebellion that led to the revolution. Beginning with Batista’s coup in 1952, which catalyzed the rebels, and bringing the reader to the present-day transformations initiated by Raúl Castro, Luis MartínezFernández provides a balanced interpretive synthesis of the major topics of contemporary Cuban history. Expertly weaving the myriad historic, social, and political forces that shaped the island nation during this period, MartínezFernández 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. He tackles the island’s chronic dependence on sugar production that, starting with the plantations centuries ago, continues to shape Cuba’s culture and society today. He analyzes the revolutionary pendulum that continues to swing between idealism and pragmatism, focusing on its effects on the everyday lives of the Cuban people, and—bucking established trends in Cuban scholarship—MartínezFernández systematically integrates the Cuban diaspora into the larger discourse of the revolution. Concise, well written, and accessible, this book is an indispensable survey of the history and themes of the socialist revolution that forever changed Cuba and the world.

Five Hundred Years of African Presence in the Sunshine State Edited by Amanda B. Carlson and Robin Poynor “An inspiring, original, and significant work that takes our notions of  ‘diaspora’ to exciting places and offers new and thoughtful data on the presence and impact of  ‘Africa’ in Florida history, lives, and objects.”—Henry John Drewal, editor of Sacred Waters “Fascinating. Indispensable. With contributions by excellent scholars in the field of African and African diaspora studies and cultural studies, the volume provides diverse meanings and interpretations of contacts among Africans from the continent, Europeans, and indigenous people of Florida that resulted in works of creative arts, language, music, and food.”—Jacob K. Olupona, author of City of 201 Gods Over the course of centuries, immigrants from numerous countries in contemporary Africa have influenced the Sunshine State’s history and culture. Through a critical evaluation of the influences and effects of the numerous African and African-influenced cultures that have been a part of the state’s history, this collection of essays and art explores how Florida both shapes and is shaped by the multiple African diasporas that move through it. Africa in Florida challenges the way American history and southern studies have characterized African contributions to the development of the United States by showing how Africans, both free and enslaved, asserted themselves as explorers, farmers, slave owners, artists, and more.

La Florida

Discovering Florida

Five Hundred Years of Hispanic Presence

First-Contact Narratives from Spanish Expeditions along the Lower Gulf Coast

Edited by Viviana Díaz Balsera and Rachel A. May “A splendid, highly readable collection that reflects substantial new research and findings on Hispanic influence in Florida.”—Ralph Lee Woodward, author of Central America: A Nation Divided “Deeply researched and sweeping across five centuries, La Florida is admirably multi- and interdisciplinary in approach and features a truly distinguished lineup of authors. Topics range from flora and fauna to archaeology and early chronicles, to politics high and low, to literature, art, architecture, music, food and foodways, and of course to the diverse and often fascinating people who made them.”—Richmond F. Brown, editor of Coastal Encounters Commemorating Juan Ponce de León’s landfall on the Atlantic coast of Florida, this ambitious volume explores five centuries of Hispanic presence in the New World peninsula, reflecting on the breadth and depth of encounters between the different lands and cultures. The contributors, leading experts in a range of fields, begin with an examination of the first and second Spanish periods. This was a time when La Florida was an elusive possession that the Spaniards were never able to completely secure; but Spanish influence would nonetheless leave an indelible mark on the land. In the second half of this volume, the essays highlight the Hispanic cultural legacy, politics, and history of modern Florida and expand on Florida’s role as a modern transatlantic crossroads. Melding history, literature, anthropology, music, culture, and sociology, La Florida is a unique presentation of the Hispanic roots that run deep in Florida’s past and present and will assuredly shape its future. Viviana Díaz Balsera, professor of Spanish at the University of Miami, is the author of The Pyramid under the Cross and Calderón y las quimeras de la culpa. Rachel A.

Edited and translated by John E. Worth “Gives voice to a period in U.S. history that remains virtually unknown, even to specialists in the field.”—J. Michael Francis, coauthor of Murder and Martyrdom in Spanish Florida “With these transcriptions and translations, Worth provides an important service to ethnohistorians, archaeologists, and others who share an interest in the Spanish colonial explorations of the greater Southeast.”—Mariah F. Wade, author of Missions, Missionaries, and Native Americans "A model for how to handle important primary sources. The historical introduction is a treasure in its own right."—Amy Turner Bushnell, author of Situado and Sabana: Spain's Support System for the Presidio and Mission Provinces of Florida Florida’s lower Gulf coast was a key region in the early European exploration of North America, with an extraordinary number of first-time interactions between Spaniards and Florida’s indigenous cultures. Discovering Florida compiles all the major writings of Spanish explorers in the area between 1513 and 1566. Including transcriptions of the original Spanish documents as well as English translations, this volume presents—in their own words— the experiences and reactions of Spaniards who came to Florida with Juan Ponce de León, Pánfilo de Narváez, Hernando de Soto, and Pedro Menéndez de Avilés. These accounts, which have never before appeared together in print, provide an astonishing glimpse into a world of indigenous cultures that did not survive colonization. With introductions to the primary sources, extensive notes, and a historical overview of Spanish exploration in the region, this book offers an unprecedented firsthand view of La Florida in the earliest stages of European conquest.

When Tobacco Was King Families, Farm Labor, and Federal Policy in the Piedmont Evan P. Bennett “Bennett makes a provocative argument about the importance of family labor on the tobacco farm, the empowerment of women and children, and the development of a community culture.”—Jeannie Whayne, author of Delta Empire: Lee Wilson and the Transformation of Agriculture in the New South “When Tobacco Was King reconstructs the lives of farm families in the Tobacco South, as well as their work and their political struggles, in vivid, nuanced detail. This brilliant account joins a short list of indispensable histories dealing with bright leaf tobacco.”—Adrienne Monteith Petty, author of Standing Their Ground: Small Farmers in North Carolina Since the Civil War Tobacco has left an indelible mark on the American South, shaping the land and culture throughout the twentieth century. In the last few decades, advances in technology and shifts in labor and farming policy have altered the way of life for tobacco farmers: family farms have largely been replaced by large-scale operations dependent on hired labor, much of it from other shores. However, the mechanical harvester and the H-2A guestworker did not put an end to tobacco culture but rather sent it in new directions and accelerated the change that has always been part of the farmer’s life. In When Tobacco Was King, Evan Bennett examines the agriculture of the South’s original staple crop in the Old Bright Belt—a diverse region named after the unique bright, or flue-cured, tobacco variety it spawned. He traces the region’s history from Emancipation to the abandonment of federal crop controls in 2004 and highlights the transformations endured by blacks and whites, landowners and tenants, to show how tobacco farmers continued to find meaning and community in their work despite these drastic changes.

The Archaeology of Smoking and Tobacco Georgia L. Fox “Fox provides important insights that will help historical archaeologists interpret tobacco-related finds and understand the multiple meanings of a commodity that has burned through the social, political, and economic fabric of the modern world.”—Frederick H. Smith, author of Caribbean Rum: A Social and Economic History “Few artifacts illustrate the American experience as clearly as tobacco. Fox examines how tobacco and smoking reveal broader social life across the face of the planet over a half-millennium.”—Paul Mullins, author of The Archaeology of Consumer Culture Smoking pipes are among the most commonly found artifacts at archaeological sites, affirming the prevalence and longevity of smoking as a cultural practice. Yet there is currently no other study in historical archaeology that interprets tobacco and smoking-related activities in such a wide spectrum and what clues they give about past societies. In The Archaeology of Smoking and Tobacco, Georgia Fox analyzes the archaeological record to survey the discovery, production, consumption, and trade of this once staple crop. She also examines how tobacco use has influenced the evolution of an American cultural identity, including perceptions of glamour, individuality, patriotism, class, gender, ethnicity, and worldliness, as well as notions of poor health, inadequate sanitation, and high-risk activities. Employing material culture found throughout North America and the Caribbean, Fox considers the ways in which Native Americans, enslaved Africans, the working class, the Irish, and women used tobacco. Her own research in Port Royal, Jamaica—an important New World hub in the British-colonial tobacco network—provides a fascinating case study to investigate the consumption of luxury goods in the pre-industrial era and the role tobacco played in an emerging capitalist world system and global economy.

Ancestors of Worthy Life Plantation Slavery and Black Heritage at Mount Clare Teresa S. Moyer “Moyer successfully uses the Mount Clare example to illuminate broader issues of racist bias in historical interpretation and preservation and what can be done to remedy this bias to effect a more inclusive history.” —David T. Palmer, University of Louisiana at Lafayette “An accessible guidebook for historical institutions who wish to examine their practices and discover ways to offer fuller, more inclusive, and fair interpretations of the sites for which they are responsible.”—Kirsti Uunila, historic preservation planner, Calvert County, Maryland Despite the contributions of enslaved African Americans to our country’s economy, culture, and history, records of their existence are all but expunged from plantation sites, which are reluctant to show and interpret the homes and lives of the enslaved. One such site is Mount Clare near Baltimore, Maryland, where Teresa Moyer’s work examines the lives of the plantation’s enslaved and investigates the issues keeping these findings from being publicly presented. In this balanced discussion of racialized practice at historic site museums, Moyer presents a rich and contextualized study of the inextricably entangled lives of the enslaved, free blacks, and white landowners. She demonstrates that inclusive interpretation of plantation and other historic house museum sites can be done. Moyer argues that the inclusion of enslaved persons in the history of these sites would honor those “ancestors of worthy note,” make the social good of public history available to African Americans, and address systemic racism in America. Teresa Moyer is an archaeologist with the National Park Service and coauthor of The Making of Harpers Ferry National Historical Park: A Devil, Two Rivers, and a Dream.

A Desolate Place for a Defiant People The Archaeology of Maroons, Indigenous Americans, and Enslaved Laborers in the Great Dismal Swamp Daniel Sayers “Addresses key historical and theoretical debates of the archaeology of the African diaspora. Theoretically complex and methodologically rigorous, it is the first serious study to locate maroon groups in the Chesapeake.”—Frederick H. Smith, author of The Archaeology of Alcohol and Drinking “The communities of the Great Dismal Swamp represent a largely unrecognized, alternative declaration of independence. Sayers is able to tell us what the impacts of that alternative declaration of independence were for those who lived their lives by it. The Dismal Swamp, its communities, and its people are a part of American and world history that was truly revolutionary.”—Mark P. Leone, author of The Archaeology of Liberty in an American Capital “Sayers helps us to better understand the history of defiance in the Antebellum South and raises important theoretical issues for all archaeologists studying diasporic communities.”—Randall H. McGuire, author of Archaeology as Political Action In the 250 years before the Civil War, the Great Dismal Swamp of Virginia and North Carolina was a brutal landscape—2,000 square miles of undeveloped and unforgiving wetlands, peat bogs, impenetrable foliage, and dangerous creatures. It was also a protective refuge for marginalized communities, including Native Americans, African-American maroons, free African Americans, and outcast Europeans. Here they created their own way of life, free of the exploitation and alienation they had escaped. In the first thorough examination of this vital site, Daniel Sayers examines the area’s archaeological record, exposing and unraveling the complex social and economic systems developed by these defiant communities that thrived on the periphery. He develops an analytical framework based on the complex interplay between alienation, diasporic exile, uneven geographical development, and modes of production to argue that colonialism and slavery inevitably created sustained critiques of American capitalism. Daniel Sayers is assistant professor of anthropology at American University. Published in cooperation with the Society for Historical Archaeology

Sherds of History Domestic Life in Colonial Guadeloupe

Slave Families and the Hato Economy in Puerto Rico

Myriam Arcangeli

David M. Stark

“A fresh look at the French Caribbean through the many forms of pottery used by colonists, Creoles, and slaves. Arcangeli offers a trove of original and often surprising insights on foodways, gender, ethnicity, health, and even attitudes about water, cleanliness, and poisoning at this crossroads of the Atlantic world.”—Gregory Waselkov, author of A Conquering Spirit: Fort Mims and the Redstick War of 1813–1814

“Stark deftly uses the available parish registers to document the stages of the coming of African men and women to Puerto Rico in the eighteenth century and reveals patterns of family formation and bonds of solidarity among the African slaves and with the rest of society.”—Fernando Pico, author of Puerto Rico Remembered

“A unique and focused analysis of the ways in which clay-bodied materials infused everyday colonial life with meaning and distinction.”—Mark W. Hauser, author of An Archaeology of Black Markets Ceramics serve as one of the best-known artifacts excavated by archaeologists. They are carefully described, classified, and dated, but rarely do scholars consider their many and varied uses. Breaking from this convention, Myriam Arcangeli examines potsherds from four colonial sites in the Antillean island of Guadeloupe to discover what these everyday items tell us about the people who used them. In the process, she reveals a wealth of information about the lives of the elite planters, the middle and lower classes, and enslaved Africans. By analyzing how the people of Guadeloupe used ceramics— whether jugs for transporting and purifying water, pots for cooking, or pearlware for eating—Arcangeli spotlights the larger social history of Creole life. What emerges is a detail rich picture of water consumption habits, changing foodways, and concepts of health. Sherds of History offers a compelling and novel study of the material record and the “ceramic culture” it represents to broaden our understanding of race, class, and gender in French-colonial societies in the Caribbean and the United States.

“An exceptionally well researched, highly original, cogently argued and engagingly written work.”—Franklin W. Knight, coeditor of Contemporary Caribbean Cultures and Societies in a Global Context “An important model for anyone using sacramental records to study slave life in colonial Latin America.”—David Wheat, Michigan State University Scholarship on slavery in the Caribbean frequently emphasizes sugar and tobacco production, but this unique work illustrates the importance of the hato economy—a combination of livestock ranching, foodstuff cultivation, and timber harvesting—to the region. David Stark makes use of extensive Catholic parish records to provide a comprehensive examination of slavery in Puerto Rico and across the Spanish Caribbean. He reconstructs enslaved families to examine incidences of marriage, as well as birth and death rates. These records provide never-before-analyzed details about how many enslaved Africans came to Puerto Rico, where they came from, and how their populations grew through natural increase. Stark convincingly argues that when animal husbandry drove much of the island’s economy, slavery was less harsh than in betterknown plantation regimes geared toward crop cultivation. Enslaved Africans in the hato economy experienced more favorable conditions for family formation, relatively relaxed work regimes, higher fertility rates, and lower mortality rates. Slave Families and the Hato Economy in Puerto Rico offers a fresh counterpoint to the focus on sugar and tobacco cultivation that has dominated the historiography of the Spanish Caribbean. David M. Stark is associate professor of history at Grand Valley State University.

Arcangeli’s innovative interpretation of the material record will challenge the ways archaeologists analyze ceramics. Myriam Arcangeli is a professional archaeologist.

Building a Nation Caribbean Federation in the Black Diaspora

Immigration and National Identities in Latin America

Eric D. Duke

Edited by Nicola Foote and Michael Goebel

“Remarkable, impressive. Duke makes a double contribution to historical scholarship: to the historiography of federalism in the Caribbean and to the historiography of political dissent, activism, and solidarity within the Caribbean diaspora.”—Winston James, author of Holding Aloft the Banner of Ethiopia: Caribbean Radicalism in Early Twentieth-Century America

“This groundbreaking study examines the connection between what are arguably the two most distinguishing phenomena of the modern world: the unprecedented surges in global mobility and in the creation of politically bounded spaces and identities.”—Jose C. Moya, author of Cousins and Strangers

“This well-researched and accessible book deepens our understanding of early twentieth-century West Indian political culture and transnational mobilization.”—April J. Mayes, author of The Mulatto Republic The initial push for a federation among British Caribbean colonies might have originated among the white elites, but the banner for federation was quickly picked up by Afro-Caribbean activists who saw in the possibility of a united West Indian nation a means of securing political power and more. In Building a Nation, Eric Duke moves beyond the narrow view of federation as only relevant to Caribbean and British imperial histories. By examining support for federation among many AfroCaribbean and other black activists in and out of the West Indies, Duke convincingly expands and connects the movement’s history squarely into the wider history of political and social activism in the early to mid-twentieth century black diaspora. Exploring the relationships between the pursuit of Caribbean federation and black diaspora politics, Duke posits that federation was more than a regional endeavor; it was a diasporic, black–nation building undertaking—with broad support in diaspora centers such as Harlem and London—deeply immersed in ideas of racial unity, racial uplift, and black self-determination. Eric D. Duke is assistant professor of Africana Studies at the University of South Florida and the coeditor of Extending the Diaspora: New Histories of Black People. A volume in the series New World Diasporas, edited by Kevin A. Yelvington

“The importance of this collection goes beyond the confines of one geographic region as it offers new insight into the role of migration in the definition and redefinition of nation states everywhere.”—Fraser Ottanelli, coeditor of Letters from the Spanish Civil War “An excellent collection of studies connecting transnational migration to the construction of national identities.”—Luis Roniger, author of Transnational Politics in Central America Between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, an influx of Europeans, Asians, and Arabic speakers indelibly changed the face of Latin America. While many studies of this period focus on why the immigrants came to the region, this volume addresses how the newcomers helped construct national identities in the Caribbean, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil. The essays, from some of the most respected scholars of migration history, examine the responses—some welcoming, some xenophobic—to the newcomers. The contributors also look at the lasting effects that Jewish, German, Chinese, Italian, and Syrian immigrants had on the economic, sociocultural, and political institutions. They explore themes of assimilation, race formation, and transnationalism to enrich our understanding not only of migration to Latin America but also of the impact of immigration on the construction of national identity. Nicola Foote, associate professor of history at Florida Gulf Coast University, is coeditor of Military Struggle and Identity Formation in Latin America. Michael Goebel, assistant professor of history at Freie Universität Berlin, is the author of Argentina’s Partisan Past.

We Are Imazighen

Creole City

The Development of Algerian Berber Identity in Twentieth-Century Literature and Culture

A Chronicle of Early American New Orleans

Fazia Aïtel “A unique account of the rise of the Berber cultural identity, in particular of the Kabyles of Algeria, in modern times. Luminaries such as Amrouche, Feraoun, Matoub, and Fares are impressively brought back to life.”—Abdourahman A. Waberi, author of Passage of Tears “A sensitive account of the paradoxical effects of colonialism and its aftermath on the formerly colonized. It is a must-read for anthropologists, literary scholars, and historians of the period.”—Vincent Crapanzano, author of The Harkis: The Wound That Never Heals “An intimate and forceful inquiry into the Berber cultural movement and the condition of post-coloniality more generally. Incorporating literature and music, history and politics, We Are Imazighen brings the cultural life of the Kabyle people to an English audience with grace and passion.”—David Crawford, author of Moroccan Households in the World Economy To the world they are known as Berbers, but they prefer to call themselves Imazighen, or “free people.” The claim to this unique cultural identity has been felt most acutely in Algeria in the Kabylia region, where an Amazigh consciousness gradually emerged after WWII. This is a valuable model for other Amazigh movements in North Africa, where the existence of Amazigh language and culture is denied or dismissed in countries such as Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, and Libya. By tracing the cultural production of the Kabyle people—their songs, oral traditions, and literature—from the early 1930s to the end of the twentieth century, Fazia Aïtel shows how they have defined their own culture over time, both within Algeria and in its diaspora. She analyzes the role of Amazigh identity in the works of novelists such as Mouloud Feraoun, Tahar Djaout, and Assia Djebar, and she investigates the intersection of Amazigh consciousness and the Beur movement in France. She also addresses the political and social role of the Kabyles in Algeria and in France, where after independence it was easier for the Berber community to express and organize itself. Ultimately, Aïtel argues that the Amazigh literary tradition is founded on dual priorities: the desire to foster a genuine dialogue while retaining a unique culture. Fazia Aïtel, associate professor of modern languages at Claremont McKenna College, is a coeditor of The Veil in All Its States.

Nathalie Dessens “Provides fresh insights into the ways that New Orleans was tied to the larger Atlantic world and how the city and its inhabitants weathered their incorporation into the United States.”—Ashli White, author of Encountering Revolution “Dessens 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 Saint-Domingue 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 time of rapid expansion and dizzying change. The story—rooted in the Sainte-Gême Family Papers harbored at The Historic New Orleans Collection—follows the twenty-year correspondence of Jean Boze to Henri de Ste-Gême, both refugees from Saint-Domingue. Exploring parts of the city’s history that have previously been neglected, Dessens examines how New Orleans came to symbolize progress, adventure, and culture to so many. Through Boze’s letters, written to de Ste-Gême between 1818 and 1839, readers witness the convergence of new Americans and old colonial populations that sparked transformations in the economic, social, and political structures, as well as the Creolization of the city. The letters depict transatlantic experiences at a time when New Orleans was a hub of the Atlantic trade and so very distinct from other early nineteenthcentury American metropolises, such as New York and Philadelphia. Dessens’s portrayal of this seminal period is crucial to understanding the city’s rich record and its larger role in American history. 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.

The Geopoetics of Modernism

The American Lawrence

Rebecca Walsh

“A critically sharp and well-informed argument for a radical and American Lawrence.”—Neil Roberts, author of D. H. Lawrence, Travel and Cultural Difference

“Takes an exciting new approach by reading modernism alongside geographical theorists as well as periodicals such as National Geographic. A provocative and revealing account of American modernist poetry in light of the recent ‘spatial’ turn in literary studies.” —Andrew Thacker, coeditor of Geographies of Modernism “An original book that contributes to major critical conversations in ecocriticism, space and spatiality, geopolitics, and poetry studies. Walsh tells a clear, compelling, and convincing story about geography’s role in shaping experimental poetry.”—Marsha Bryant, author of Women’s Poetry and Popular Culture The Geopoetics of Modernism is the first book to illuminate the links between American modernism and the geographic discourse of the time. Rebecca Walsh explores Walt Whitman’s, Gertrude Stein’s, Langston Hughes’s, and H.D.’s engagements with contemporary geographic theories and sources—including the cosmological geography of Alexander von Humboldt and Mary Somerville, the environmental determinism of Ellen Churchill Semple, and mainstream textbooks and periodicals—which informed the formal and political dimensions of their work. Walsh argues that the dominant geographic paradigms of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries gave authority to experimental writers who were breaking with other forms of authority, enabling them to create transnational forms of belonging on the exhilarating landscape of nations, continents, and the globe. By examining modernism alongside environmental determinist geography, she maps a poetic terrain where binaries such as west versus non-west or imperial center versus colonial periphery are destabilized. The Geopoetics of Modernism reveals the geographic terms through which American modernist poetry interrogated prevailing ideas of orientalism, primitivism, and American exceptionalism. Rebecca Walsh is assistant professor of English at North Carolina State University.

Lee M. Jenkins

“Beautifully written. Jenkins has a detailed and sure grasp of the numerous back-stories crisscrossing Lawrence’s engagement with the United States. An entertaining literary history and thought-provoking introduction to some very important concerns in Lawrence (and American) studies.”—Thomas Strychacz, author of Dangerous Masculinities: Conrad, Hemingway, and Lawrence Although he is frequently perceived as a distinctly English author, in this study D. H. Lawrence is reevaluated as a creator and critic of American literature as well. From 1922 to 1925, during his “savage pilgrimage” in Mexico and New Mexico, he completed the core of what this book terms his “American oeuvre”—including his major volume of criticism, Studies in Classic American Literature. Lee Jenkins portrays Lawrence as a transatlantic writer whose significant body of work embraces and adapts both English and American traditions and innovations. The American Lawrence looks at the modernist writer’s experiences in the Americas and his fascination with indigenous culture. It illustrates how Lawrence played an important role in the formation of American literary criticism and the American literary canon. It also shows how Lawrence creatively employs the generic conventions of classic American fiction in his own work. Reassessing Lawrence’s relationship to American modernism and his American literary contemporaries, Jenkins offers new insights into the literary exchange between America and Europe. Lee M. Jenkins is senior lecturer in English at University College Cork. She is the author of The Language of Caribbean Poetry: Boundaries of Expression and Wallace Stevens: Rage for Order.

Irish Cosmopolitanism

Modernists at Odds

Location and Dislocation in James Joyce, Elizabeth Bowen, and Samuel Beckett

Reconsidering Joyce and Lawrence

Nels Pearson “Clearly written, convincingly argued, and transformative.” —Nicholas Allen, author of Modernism, Ireland and Civil War “Goes beyond ‘statism’ and postnationalism toward a cosmopolitics of Irish transnationalism in which national belonging and national identity are permanently in transition.”—Gregory Castle, author of The Literary Theory Handbook “Shows how three important Irish writers crafted forms of cosmopolitan thinking that spring from, and illuminate, the painful realities of colonialism and anti-colonial struggle.”—Marjorie Howes, author of Colonial Crossings: Figures in Irish Literary History Looking at the writing of three Irish expatriates who lived in Trieste, London, and Paris, Nels Pearson challenges conventional critical trends that view their work as either affirming Irish anti-colonial sentiment or embracing international identity. In reality, he argues, these writers work constantly back and forth between a sense of national belonging that remains incomplete and ideas of human universality tied to their new global environments. For these and many other Irish writers, national and international concerns do not conflict, but overlap—and the interplay between them motivates Irish modernism. Joyce’s Ulysses strives to articulate the interdependence of an Irish identity and a universal perspective. Bowen’s exiled, unrooted characters are never firmly rooted in the first place. And in Beckett, the unsettled origin is felt most keenly when it is abandoned for exile. These writers demonstrate the displacement felt by many Irish citizens in an ever-changing Ireland unsteadied by long and turbulent decolonization. Ultimately, their work displays a twofold struggle to pinpoint national identity while adapting to a fluid cosmopolitan world.

Edited by Matthew J. Kochis and Heather L. Lusty “Challenges the unhelpful polarization of Lawrence and Joyce in much twentieth-century literary criticism and offers intriguing alternatives to what is surely a reductive approach to the achievements of both writers.”—Fiona Becket, author of The Complete Critical Guide to D. H. Lawrence “A groundbreaking collection. Sexuality, censorship, publishing, and rivalry are all treated with a fresh eye; cutting-edge archival research is brought to the fore; and new perspectives such as ecocriticism are among the many highlights.”—Susan Mooney, author of The Artistic Censoring of Sexuality Modernism’s most contentious rivals, James Joyce and D. H. Lawrence, are traditionally seen as opposites. This is the first book to explore the resonances between the two writers, revealing that their lives, works, and careers have striking similarities. For starters, they shared the same literary agent, published in the same literary magazines, fought similar legal battles against censorship, and were both pirated by Samuel Roth. The parallels run deeper. This volume revels in two writers who share classic modernist paradoxes: both are at once syncretists and shatterers, bourgeois cosmopolitans, prudish libertines, displaced nostalgists, and rebels against their native lands. These essays consider mutual themes such as gender, class, nature, and religion, highlighting the many intersections among the issues that concerned both Joyce and Lawrence. Modernists at Odds is a long overdue extended comparison of two of the most compelling writers of the twentieth century. Matthew J.

“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 “Beautifully rendered vignettes of witness that contextualize and converse with the greater works. They make for fascinating reading. Debo’s introduction and precise scholarly annotations 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 This volume presents two rare works by the American modernist H.D.: Within the Walls, a collection of fourteen short stories, and What Do I Love?, a set of three long poems. Written in World War II London, where H.D. chose to stay despite offers of refuge in the United States, these texts recount her experiences during the Blitz with a taut simplicity and authority that capture the essence of the war-torn city. Annette Debo’s nuanced introduction sets the cultural scene for these works. Using extensive archival research, she positions the literature in three contexts: H.D.’s personal life, the story of women civilians at war, and the international history of World War II. Debo helps us comprehend a time and place that transformed “H.D. Imagiste” into the bold war writer evidenced in this volume and opens our eyes to the impact of these war experiences on H.D.’s more wellknown works. 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. She is the author of The American H.D. and the coeditor of Approaches to Teaching H.D.’s Poetry and Prose.

“An extraordinary achievement and a fitting final volume in the Medieval Mythography series. It contains stunning, original treatments of the three enormous figures of the later Middle Ages: Dante, Boccaccio, and Christine de Pizan.”—J. Stephen Russell, author of Chaucer and the Trivium: The Mindsong of the Canterbury Tales “There is nothing comparable available in any language. Chance’s first-rate knowledge of the texts in a variety of languages is equaled by her knowledge of the secondary literature as well as contemporary literature.”—Jon Solomon, editor and translator of Giovanni Boccaccio’s Genealogy of the Pagan Gods, Volume 1: Books I–V With this volume, Jane Chance concludes her monumental study of the history of mythography in medieval literature. Her focus here is the advent of hybrid mythography, the transformation of mythological commentary by blending the scholarly with the courtly and the personal. Chance’s in-depth examination of works by the major writers of the period—including Dante, Boccaccio, and Christine de Pizan—demonstrates how they essentially co-opted a thousand-year tradition. Their intricate narratives of identity mixed commentary with poetry; reinterpreted classical gods and heroes to suit personal agendas; and gave rise to innovative techniques such as “inglossation,” the use of a mythological figure to comment on the protagonist within an autobiographical allegory. In this manner, through allegorical authorial projection of the self, the poets explored a subjective world and manifested a burgeoning humanism that would eventually come to full fruition in the Renaissance. No other work examines the mythographic interrelationships between these poets and their unique and personal approaches to mythological commentary. Jane Chance, Andrew W. Mellon Distinguished Professor Emerita of English at Rice University and Honorary Doctor of Letters, has published twenty-two books, including Lord of the Rings: The Mythology of Power and The Mythographic Chaucer: The Fabulation of Sexual Politics.

Black Legacies Race and the European Middle Ages

The Failure of Term Limits in Florida

Lynn T. Ramey

Kathryn A. DePalo

“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 definitive account of how term limits have reshaped contemporary Florida politics.”—Seth C. McKee, author of Republican Ascendancy in Southern U.S. House Elections

“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 Black Legacies looks at color-based prejudice in medieval and modern texts in order to reveal key similarities. 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. Using historical, literary, and artistic sources, Lynn Ramey shows that twelfth- and thirteenth-century discourse was preoccupied with skin color and the coding of black as “evil” and white as “good.” Ramey demonstrates that fears of miscegenation show up in all medieval European societies. She pinpoints these same ideas in the rhetoric of later centuries. Mapmakers and travel writers of the colonial era used medieval lore of “monstrous peoples” to question the humanity of indigenous New World populations, and medieval arguments about humanness were employed to justify the slave trade. Ramey even analyzes how race is explored in films set in medieval Europe, revealing an enduring fascination with the Middle Ages as a touchstone for processing and coping with racial conflict in the West today.

“If you want to know why term limits were adopted in Florida and how they have changed the legislature and lawmaking process and the balance of power between institutional actors you absolutely have to read this book.”—Aubrey Jewett, coauthor of Politics in Florida, Third Edition In 1992, Florida voters approved an amendment to the state’s Constitution creating eight-year term limits for legislators—making Florida the second-largest state to implement such a law. Eight years later, sixty-eight term-limited senators and representatives were forced to retire, and the state saw the highest number of freshman legislators since the first legislative session in 1845. Proponents view term limits as part of a battle against the rising political class and argue that limits will foster a more honest and creative body with ideal “citizen” legislators. However, in this comprehensive twenty-year study, the first of its kind to examine the effects of term limits in Florida, Kathryn DePalo shows nothing could be further from the truth. Instead, these limits created a more powerful governor, legislative staffers, and lobbyists. Because incumbency is now certain, leadership races—especially for Speaker—are sometimes completed before members have even cast a single vote. Furthermore, legislators rarely leave public office; they simply return to local offices where they continue to exert influence. The Failure of Term Limits in Florida is a tour de force examination of the unintended and surprising consequences of the new incumbency advantage in the Sunshine State. Kathryn DePalo is senior instructor at Florida International University. A volume in the Florida Government and Politics series, edited by David R. Colburn and Susan A. MacManus

James Buchanan and the Coming of the Civil War Edited by John W. Quist and Michael J. Birkner “It’s not an attempt to contradict the standard portrayal of Buchanan as one of the least effective presidents. . . . But it does try to get people to argue about him a bit more, and reassess what he did well and did badly.”—BBC News “A much needed, and satisfyingly comprehensive, reassessment of the Buchanan Presidency. . . . [A] must-read.”—Civil War Books and Authors “Buchanan’s management of the secession crisis is at the heart of the book, and its bounty of informed views on his role during this seminal moment in American history is refreshingly diverse. The collection might very well come to be regarded as the most comprehensive and useful reconsideration of the Buchanan presidency.”—Civil War Monitor “A portrait of the fifteenth president that acknowledges his weaknesses and shortcomings, yet also recognizes that his failures were not universal.”—Civil War Book Review The essays in James Buchanan and the Coming of the Civil War provide a deep, nuanced understanding of a flawed president during his turbulent and consequential term in the White House.

Frank, author of Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier Nathaniel Millett examines how the Prospect Bluff maroons constructed their freedom, revealing the extent and limits of their physical and intellectual fight to claim their rights. He compares their settlement with maroon communities across the Americas, emphasizing the rare opportunity offered by Prospect Bluff to examine black consciousness during the era of slavery.

After Slavery

Renascent Joyce

Before Daybreak

Race, Labor, and Citizenship in the Reconstruction South

Edited by Daniel Ferrer, Sam Slote, and André Topia

“After the Race” and the Origins of Joyce’s Art

Edited by Bruce E. Baker and Brian Kelly “Highly recommended.”—Choice “Collectively these essays allow us to rethink the meanings of state and citizenship in the Reconstruction South, a deeply necessary task and a laudable advance on the existing historiography.”—Alex Lichtenstein, Indiana University After Slavery moves beyond broad generalizations concerning black life during Reconstruction in order to address the varied experiences of freed slaves across the South. Urban unrest in New Orleans and Wilmington, North Carolina, loyalty among former slave owners and slaves in Mississippi, armed insurrection along the Georgia coast, and racial violence throughout the region are just some of the topics examined. The essays included here are selected from the best work created for the After Slavery Project, a transatlantic research collaboration. They offer diverse viewpoints on the key issues in Reconstruction historiography and a well-rounded portrait of the era. Bruce E. Baker, lecturer on American history, Newcastle University, is the author of numerous books, including What Reconstruction Meant. Brian Kelly, director of the After Slavery Project and reader in the School of History and Anthropology at Queen’s University Belfast, is the author of Race, Class, and Power in the Alabama Coalfields, 1908–21.

“A salient, formidable study.”—Choice

“A volume of contributions that are consistently, unfailingly illuminating examples of extensive scholarship and fine criticism.” —Morris Beja, Ohio State University Revival, reinvention, and regeneration: the concept of renascence pervades Joyce’s work through the inescapable presence of his literary forebears. Renascent Joyce examines Joyce’s connection to the Renaissance in such figures as Shakespeare, Rabelais, and Bruno. Attentive to the current state of Joyce studies, the writers of these extensively researched essays investigate the Renaissance spirit in Joyce to offer a volume about aspects of Joyce’s work that have previously been given little attention. Topics include literary historiography, Joyce’s early twentieth-century French cultural contexts, and the French translation of Ulysses. Daniel Ferrer is director of research at the Institut des Textes et Manuscrits Modernes in Paris. Sam Slote is associate professor in the School of English at Trinity College Dublin. He is the author of Joyce’s Nietzschean Ethics. André Topia was professor emeritus of English literature at the Sorbonne Nouvelle. His coedited books include "Scribble" 2, Joyce et Flaubert, and "Dubliners": rituels d’écriture. A volume in the Florida James Joyce series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

“Owens has written a Rolls Royce of a book here, laden with sparkling new insights into Joyce’s mind and methods, yet written with a lightness, lucidity, and joy that will please even a novice reader. . . . By the end of his book one feels punch drunk, breathless on the Joycean ropes after a pummeling of scholarly jabs and upper cuts.”—Irish University Review “Reveals an astonishing number and variety of influence, pre-cursors, progeny, allusions, symbols, puns, narrative strategies, and rhetorical devices brought to bear by Joyce on this deceptively simple tale. . . . Superlative. . . . Will delight the devoted Joyce scholar.” —English Literature in Transition, 1880–1920 “Demonstrates the richness and resonance (and importance to Joyce’s emerging artistic sensibility) of even the least rich, most marginal of Joyce’s early fictions. In particular, Owens’s painstaking and illuminating investigation does rare justice to the technical complexities of Joyce’s literary method.”—Brian W. Shaffer, Rhodes College Dig into Joyce’s “After the Race” with lifelong Irish literary scholar Cóilín Owens and watch this one small story explode into a staggering Joycean universe.

Ancient Maya Pottery Classification, Analysis, and Interpretation Edited by James John Aimers “Does a nice job of covering the Maya world, showcasing some of the most important ceramicists and their efforts. . . . Another worthy addition to the Maya Studies series.”—Latin American Antiquity “A substantive compendium of analyses of Maya ceramics from different parts of the Maya area. . . . Other areas of the world can benefit from the kind of reflexivity and thoughtfulness about ceramic analysis found in this volume.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “Brings together leading Maya ceramicists. This volume is of particular theoretical strength for the discussion on terminology in classification, both for critically evaluating the type-variety system and for general classification of pottery.”—Heather McKillop, author of Salt This impressive volume brings together many of the archaeologists signally involved in the analysis and interpretation of ancient Maya ceramics and represents new findings and state-of-the-art thinking. This book serves both as a valuable resource for archaeologists involved in pottery classification, analysis, and interpretation and as an illuminating exploration of ancient Mayan culture. James Aimers, associate professor of anthropology at the State University of New York, Geneseo, is the author of Cultural Change on a Temporal and Spatial Frontier.

Ancient Maya Political Dynamics Antonia E. Foias “Important . . . will interest archaeologists working in Mesoamerica and beyond. Highly recommended.” —Choice “Essential reading for Mayanists but its emphasis on methodology should make it valuable reading for anyone interested in early states.”—Antiquity “Foias provides a refreshing take on questions long fascinating to Maya and other scholars.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “Impressive. It contributes significantly to the anthropological literature on politics and power.”—Daniela Triadan, coeditor of Burned Palaces and Elite Residences of Aguateca “Ancient Maya Political Dynamics synthesizes, digests, and makes available the results of the tremendous boom in political studies in the Maya area that has occurred in the last twenty years as a consequence of rapid glyph decipherment, increased archaeological data, and more sophisticated theoretical modeling.”—Eleanor M. King, Howard University Antonia Foias explores the ways in which the dynamics of political power shaped the lives and landscape of the Maya and how this information can be used to look at other complex societies. Antonia E. Foias is professor of anthropology at Williams College and the coeditor of Motul de San José: Politics, History, and Economy in a Classic Maya Polity.

A compelling narrative about local adaptation to colonialism.”—American Anthropologist “Groundbreaking . . . set[s] the bar high for further prehistoric and colonial archaeologists working in the Andes and elsewhere. . . . Excels at smashing traditional disciplinary boundaries and methodologies and underscores the need for late prehistoric and colonial period archaeologists to develop larger and more sophisticated toolkits in the study of cultural landscapes.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “Impressive . . . The combination of methods employed in this book and the nuanced perspectives they provide draw attention to the contrasting visions of colonization produced by textual records and material evidence.” —Hispanic American Historical Review This multidisciplinary—indeed transdisciplinary—research reveals how the Andean people of southern Peru’s Colca Valley experienced and responded to successive waves of colonial rule by the Inka and Spanish empires from the fifteenth through seventeenth centuries. Steven A. Wernke is associate professor of anthropology at Vanderbilt University.
