Field to Feast Recipes Celebrating Florida Farmers, Chefs, and Artisans Pam Brandon, Katie Farmand, and Heather McPherson A mouthwatering feast of the best Florida has to offer “We’re putting Field to Feast on our shelf alongside Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings Cross Creek Cookery and Jeanne Voltz’s The Florida Cookbook because it’s destined to become a classic. Moreover, it’s exactly the book we’ve been looking for: a thorough, up-to-the-minute work that tells the diverse, wide-ranging story of food in Florida (a state without equal for its sheer number of distinct culinary regions) from the perspective of the people who know it best: the small farmers and chefs who’ve made it such an exciting place to cook and dine today.”— Matt Lee and Ted Lee, authors of The Lee Bros. Simple Fresh Southern

Florida offers more to savor than merely seafood and citrus. Name an ingredient and you’re likely to find it here. To research Field to Feast, authors Pam Brandon, Katie Farmand, and Heather McPherson travelled thousands of miles, tasting the freshest ingredients they could find. They found world-famous chefs who eagerly shared their best recipes to highlight those flavors. The result is a cookbook like no other; a delicious celebration of Florida food and cooking that’ll lead you from the kitchen to the farmers’ market and home again. Pam Brandon is a food and travel writer and managing editor of Edible Orlando magazine. She is the author of numerous books, including Culinary Confessions of the PTA Divas. Katie Farmand is a food stylist and Orlando-based recipe developer. She is editor of Edible Orlando magazine, has served as the food editor for Victoria and Teatime magazines, and is the author of the blog The Thin Chef. Heather McPherson, past president of the Association of Food Journalists, is a food editor and restaurant critic for the Orlando Sentinel, where she writes four weekly columns on food and dining trends.

“Go roaming the back roads, as these three writers did, and you’ll be astonished by how much there is to discover. Brandon, Farmand, and McPherson have written a wonderful guide to the farmers, artisans, and kitchen magicians whose collective wares will broaden and elevate your vision of what grows in the Sunshine State—and how accessible it is to us all.”—John Egerton, author of Southern Food: At Home, On the Road, In History “These three authors have shown the world a Florida that boasts a rich tapestry of local foods and traditions and respect for place and land. This is a gorgeous book, and a good one to cook from, too.”—Deborah Madison, author of Seasonal Fruit Desserts: From Orchard, Farm, and Market

Redheads Die Quickly and Other Stories Gil Brewer Edited by David Rachels Pulp fiction from a master of 1950s noir Gil Brewer (1922–1983), a second-generation noir writer, followed in the footsteps of Raymond Chandler, Dashiell Hammett, and James M. Cain. He spent most of his life in the Tampa Bay area, where he also set most of his fiction. Like his characters, he was a victim of his own weaknesses, dying as a result of the alcoholism that plagued his whole adult life.

Brewer published prolifically under various pseudonyms and in a variety of niche genres

including mystery, romance, and pornography. Over the course of his career, he published more than 100 short stories and 50 novels, including A Taste for Sin, Satan Is a Woman, and The Girl from Hateville. He is known for his everyday characters—often underdogs, frequently “Gil Brewer marinated crime and lust together in the humid Florida heat to produce stories of sexual hunger, obsession, and predation. David Rachels has done us a service by collecting Brewer’s neglected short fiction. His introduction traces Brewer’s life and art with style and insight, and the stories continue to delight.” —Leonard Cassuto, author of HardBoiled Sentimentality: The Secret History of American Crime Stories

downtrodden, and desperate to get ahead in life—who ultimately succumb to their own weaknesses and desires.

Brewer revolutionized the availability of reading-as-entertainment for the American peo-

ple by helping to exploit a new market: the paperback original. Many of his novels, including the bestselling 13 French Street, have recently been reissued for a new audience. However, Redheads Die Quickly and Other Stories is the first collection of his short fiction.

Because his work was published in a large number of pulp magazines, and because he

regularly didn’t publish stories under his own name, Brewer’s fans—and fans of hard-boiled noir fiction in general—have often been frustrated in their efforts to find the work of this mid-century American crime writer. David Rachels has sifted through the Brewer papers at the University of Wyoming, thumbed through thousands of publications, and tracked down

Homegrown in Florida Edited by William McKeen Growing up in the Sunshine State “Brings back a world in which kids played outside unsupervised, when grandmothers wore pearls and smelled of talcum powder and cooked hot breakfasts, and when a mother might spend Sunday morning immersed in the Miami Herald but felt it her duty to have grace said at the dinner table.” —Joy Wallace Dickinson, author of Remembering Orlando

Florida can seem like a child’s dream of paradise: endless sunny days, trips to the beach to swim and build sandcastles, bike riding without a jacket in the middle of January, and magical theme parks only a short drive away. But what was life really like for those who grew up here?

During a recent reunion, writers Bill McKeen, Tim Dorsey, and Jeff Klinkenberg found them-

selves lamenting that so many of their childhood memories were fading away. For them, and for many, Florida is not just a place people go to, it’s where they come from.

That can mean many things to many people, as the stellar cast of writers, journalists, and

musicians eloquently reveal in Homegrown in Florida. This utterly satisfying and powerful anthology aims at the heart of the glories of childhood and the pain of growing up. Both a celebration of the exotic, untamed wilderness of a youth filled with moss-draped oaks and citrus fields, evergreen winters and palmetto fronds, and a reminder that innocence often gave way to experience as bike paths became private developments and swimming holes were paved over by interstates, Homegrown in Florida is filled with tears and laughter alike.

Featuring contributions from Carl Hiaasen, Tom Petty, Zora Neale Hurston, Michael Con-

nelly, and many more, this is a book for every child of old Florida, and every child at heart.

“Sparkles with all the colors of our childhood, like the Florida sun setting over the Gulf. A surprising cross-section of thirty-four talented writers, poets, and entertainers transport us to a state where anything was possible, where memories take on a life of their own and have lasting consequences.” —Victor DiGenti, author of the Windrusher series

William McKeen is the author of nine books, including Mile Marker Zero, Outlaw Journalist, Highway 61, and Rock and Roll Is Here to Stay. He teaches at Boston University, where he chairs the Department of Journalism.

Calling Me Home Gram Parsons and the Roots of Country Rock Bob Kealing The musically formative years of an American genius On September 19, 1973, Gram Parsons became yet another rock-and-roll casualty in an era of excess, a time when young men wore their dangerous habits like badges of honor. Unfortunately, his many musical accomplishments have been overshadowed by a morbid fascination with his drug overdose in the Joshua Tree desert at the age of twenty-six.

Known as the father of country rock, Parsons played with the International Submarine

Band, The Byrds, and the Flying Burrito Brothers. In the late 1960s and early ’70s, he was a key confidante of Keith Richards. In 1972, he gave Emmylou Harris her first big break. When Tom Petty re-formed his Florida garage band Mudcrutch, he invoked the name of Gram Parsons as “Has a great narrative velocity. Even though we know how this story is going to end—tragically, of course —Kealing keeps us turning the page as we follow Gram Parsons through his short, rich life.”—William McKeen, author of Outlaw Journalist: The Life and Times of Hunter S. Thompson

“I could almost hear the music coming from those now-dilapidated buildings where Gram Parsons received his musical education. Bob Kealing makes them come alive as he explores the faces and places that turned Parsons from a southern-bred trust fund child into a self-destructive yet visionary musical pioneer.”—Jeffrey M. Lemlich, author of Savage Lost: Florida Garage Bands: The ’60s and Beyond

Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee, Kealing celebrates Parsons’s timeless and transfor-

fin, and Steve Earle have also paid homage to alt-country’s patron saint.

In Calling Me Home, Bob Kealing traces the entire arc of Parsons’s career, emphasizing his

southern roots. Drawing on dozens of new interviews as well as rare letters and photographs provided by Parsons’s family and legendary photojournalist Ted Polumbaum, Kealing has uncovered facts that even the most stalwart Parsons fans will find revealing.

Travelling from Parsons’s boyhood home in Waycross, Georgia, to the southern folk mecca

of Coconut Grove, Florida, and from the birthplace of outlaw country in Austin, Texas, to the mative musical legacy. Bob Kealing, an Edward R. Murrow and three-time Emmy award–winning reporter for NBC’s WESH-TV in Orlando, is the author of Kerouac in Florida and Tupperware Unsealed.

Forever Young A Life of Adventure in Air and Space John W. Young with James R. Hansen The much-anticipated autobiography of a veteran astronaut He walked on the Moon. He flew six space missions in three different programs—more than anyone else. He served with NASA for more than four decades. His peers called him the “astronaut’s astronaut.”

Enthusiasts of space exploration have long waited for John Young to tell the story of his

two Gemini flights, his two Apollo missions, the first-ever Space Shuttle flight, and the first Spacelab mission. Forever Young delivers all that and more: Young’s personal journey from engineering graduate to fighter pilot, to test pilot, to astronaut, to high-ranking NASA official, to clear-headed predictor of the fate of Planet Earth.

Young, with the assistance of internationally distinguished aerospace historian James

Hansen, recounts the great episodes of his amazing flying career in fascinating detail and with wry humor. He reveals astronauts as ordinary human beings and NASA as an institution with the same ups and downs as other major bureaucracies. He frankly discusses the risks of space travel, including what went wrong with the Challenger and Columbia shuttles.

Forever Young is one of the last memoirs produced by an early American astronaut. It is the

first memoir written by a chief of the NASA astronaut corps. Young’s experiences and candor make this book indispensable to everyone interested in the U.S. space program. John W. Young, retired astronaut and former NASA executive, has received more than eighty major awards for his career in aerospace, including six honorary doctorates. James R. Hansen is professor of history and former director of the Honors College at Auburn University. He has been associated with the NASA History Program for the past thirty-one years and is the author of First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong and coauthor of Truth, Lies, and O-Rings: Inside the Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster.


“John Young has been at the center of human spaceflight since the mid1960s, and his revealing autobiography speaks to internal issues, external possibilities, and the commitment of this individual to the movement of humanity beyond earth.”—Roger D. Launius, senior curator, space history, Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum “Young covers over forty years of NASA history in this breakthrough memoir, one that will inspire admiration for his achievements but also raise questions about the overall American space-faring enterprise.”—Michael H.

Everglades Patrol Tom Shirley Experience the rough-and-tumble Glades as they once were “Offers some wonderful descriptions that I’ve never before read of the richness of the wildlife before the 1950s. It’s a page turner.”—Jack E. Davis, author of An Everglades Providence “This excellent book consists of two tales: one, the first-hand action/adventure story of Florida game wardens airboating across the vast Everglades in pursuit of poachers; the other, observations on the political and flood-control engineering decisions and actions that resulted, sadly, in water quality and wildlife degradation. I highly recommend Everglades Patrol on both counts.” —Patricia Caulfield, author and photographer of Everglades

Florida Everglades.

In Everglades Patrol, Shirley shares the stories from his beat—an ecosystem larger than the

state of Rhode Island. His vivid narrative includes dangerous tales of rogue gladesmen and gators and airboat chases through the wetlands in search of illegal hunters and moonshiners.

During his thirty-year career (1955–85), Shirley saw the Glades go from frontier wilderness

to “ruination” at the hands of the Army Corps of Engineers. He watched as dikes cut off the water flow and as controlled floods submerged islands that had supported man and animal for 3,000 years, killing much of the wildlife he was sworn to protect.

The Man Who Saved the Whooping Crane The Robert Porter Allen Story Kathleen Kaska One man’s odyssey to find the last of a dying breed Millions of people know a little bit about efforts to save the whooping crane, thanks to the movie Fly Away Home and annual news stories about ultralight planes leading migratory flocks. But few realize that in the spring of 1941 the population of these magnificent birds— pure white with black wingtips, standing five feet tall with a seven-foot wingspan—had reached an all-time low of fifteen. Written off as a species destined for extinction, the whooping crane has made a slow but unbelievable comeback over the last seven decades.

This recovery would have been impossible if not for the efforts of Robert Porter Allen, an

ornithologist with the National Audubon Society, whose courageous eight-year crusade to find the only remaining whooping crane nesting site in North America garnered nationwide media coverage. His search and his impassioned lectures about overdevelopment, habitat loss, and unregulated hunting triggered a media blitz that had thousands of citizens on the lookout for the birds during their migratory trips.

Allen’s tireless efforts changed the course of U.S. environmental history and helped lead to

the passage of the Endangered Species Act in 1973. Though few people remember him today, his life reads like an Indiana Jones story, full of danger and adventure, failure and success. His amazing story deserves to be told. Kathleen Kaska is a professional writer and the author of several books including the novel Murder at the Arlington.

“Finally, Robert Porter Allen gets the credit he deserves for his tireless work on behalf of the whooping crane. Kathleen Kaska movingly recounts an adventurous life dedicated to the preservation of endangered birds when the odds were overwhelmingly against success—a hurricane in the Caribbean, armed unrest in Cuba, an unwelcoming Canadian wilderness. Kaska’s narrative reads like an adventure novel!”—Elizabeth J.

Weeki Wachee Mermaids Thirty Years of Underwater Photography Lu Vickers and Bonnie Georgiadis Return to the most famous theme park of mid-century Florida By the late 1940s, long before Disney dreamed of building a magic kingdom in central Florida, the state had more botanical gardens, jungles, monkeys, parrots, and glass-bottomed boats than a tourist could shake a camera at. But only one place had banana-eating mermaids, and that was Weeki Wachee.

Located about forty-five miles north of Tampa and still in existence today, Weeki Wachee

has been featured in major motion pictures and visited by astronauts, movie stars, and Elvis Presley. Like everyone else, they came to see the famous mermaids—in actuality, highly trained swimmers and divers.

Weeki Wachee Mermaids features rare, never-before-published vintage photographs, post-

cards, and publicity shots taken over a thirty-year period, starting with the first performance in 1947 and ending with the extravagant “underwater Broadway” shows created by the corporate owners of ABC-TV. The water was so clear and the scenarios so cleverly straightforward that audiences initially doubted that the show was really underwater, and newspaper editors across the country suspected the photographs might be fake.

Lu Vickers’s accompanying text retraces the origins of the attraction, particularly the ways

that entrepreneur and underwater photography pioneer Newt Perry set Weeki Wachee apart from all the other springs in Florida. Coauthor Bonnie Georgiadis, who was in junior high when the park opened, eventually worked thirty-seven years at the park, first as a mermaid, later as a choreographer, and eventually as a falconer. Lu Vickers is the author of Breathing Underwater; Weeki Wachee, City of Mermaids; and Cypress Gardens, America’s Tropical Wonderland. Bonnie Georgiadis is a former Weeki Wachee mermaid who lives in Tarpon Springs, Florida.

“The Weeki Wachee mermaids have been entertaining Florida tourists for more than six decades, and this book takes us into their underwater world to learn how they managed to perform such amazing feats—with very little opportunity to breathe!” —Tim Hollis, author of Selling the Sunshine State “Just as deeply as the mermaids dove into the depths of the springs itself, Lu Vickers has delved into the history of Weeki Wachee. She leads us to an understanding of how and why the mermaid shows mesmerized people.”—Gary Monroe, author of Silver Springs: The Underwater Photography of Bruce Mozert

Joie Wilson and Penny Taylor

“From the late 1950s into the early ’80s these colorful landscapes were ubiquitous decorations in Florida homes, offices, restaurants, and motel rooms. They shaped the state’s popular image as much as oranges and alligators.”—New York Times “A valuable document of Florida’s rich cultural past, showing how black artists contributed to the dreamy visions of Florida that were being aggressively marketed at a time when air conditioning and mosquito repellent in the 1950s made the state a desirable destination.”—Miami Herald

The days are long past when tourists could buy an original landscape painting on the side of the road for as little as fifty dollars—sometimes before the paint dried. This new book of postcards allows you to experience the thrill of owning (miniature) versions of these exquisite paintings. Gary Monroe is professor of fine arts and photography at Daytona State College and author of numerous books, including Harold Newton: The Original Highwayman and The Highwaymen Murals: Al Black’s Concrete Dreams.

Picturing Black New Orleans A Creole Photographer’s View of the Early Twentieth Century Arthé A. Anthony Fascinating insights into a world almost forgotten Florestine Perrault Collins (1895–1988) lived a fascinating and singular life. She came from a Creole family that had known privileges before the Civil War, privileges that largely disappeared in the Jim Crow South. She learned photographic techniques while passing for white. She opened her first studio in her home then moved it to New Orleans’s black business district. Fiercely independent, she ignored convention by moving out of her parents’ house before marriage and, later, by divorcing her first husband.

Between 1920 and 1949, Collins documented African American life, capturing images of

graduations, communions, and recitals and allowing her subjects to help craft their images.

“A welcome addition to the study of vernacular photography. Anthony reveals how this remarkable woman marked her place in a ‘man’s world.’ Picturing Black New Orleans will have an impact on the history of photography and the city of New Orleans, particularly the Tremé neighborhood. This book is a revelation.”—Deborah Willis

She supported herself and her family throughout the Great Depression and in the process created an enduring pictorial record of her particular time and place. Collins left behind a visual legacy that taps into the social and cultural history of New Orleans and the South.

It is this legacy that Arthé Anthony, Collins’s great-niece, explores in Picturing Black New

Orleans. Anthony blends Collins’s story with those of the individuals she photographed, documenting the profound changes in the lives of Louisiana Creoles and African Americans. photographs rescued from New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, Anthony gives us a rich look at the cultural landscape of New Orleans nearly a century ago. Arthé A. Anthony is professor of American studies at Occidental College.

The Beast in Florida A History of Anti-Black Violence Marvin Dunn A haunting look at the former lynching capital of America A symbolic embodiment of racial violence and hatred, “The Beast” openly prowled the nation between the Civil War and the civil rights movement. The reasons it appeared varied, with psychological, political, and economic dynamics all playing a part, but the outcome was always brutal—if not deadly.

From the bombing of Harriette and Harry T. Moore’s home on Christmas Day to Willie

James Howard’s murder, from the Rosewood massacre to the Newberry Six lynchings, Marvin Dunn offers an encyclopedic catalogue of The Beast’s rampages in Florida. Instead of simply taking snapshots of incidents, Dunn provides context for a century’s worth of racial violence by examining communities over time. Crucial insights from interviews with descendants of both perpetrators and victims shape this study of Florida’s grim racial history. Rather than pointing fingers and placing blame, The Beast in Florida allows voices and facts to speak for themselves, facilitating a conversation on the ways in which racial violence changed both black and white lives forever.

“The Beast in Florida is the most original and courageous book of Florida history since Stetson Kennedy’s Palmetto Country was published in 1942.”—Paul Ortiz, author of Emancipation Betrayed

With this comprehensive and balanced look at racially motivated events, Dunn reveals the

Sunshine State’s too-often forgotten—or intentionally hidden—past. The result is a panorama of compelling human stories: its emergent dialogue challenges conceptions of what created and maintained The Beast. Marvin Dunn, retired chairman of the Department of Psychology at Florida International University, is the author of Black Miami in the Twentieth Century.

The Life and Times of Mary Musgrove Steven C. Hahn One of the most recognizable names of the colonial Deep South The story of Mary Musgrove (1700–1764), a Creek Indian–English woman struggling for success in colonial society, is an improbable one.

As a literate Christian, entrepreneur, and wife of an Anglican clergyman, Mary was one of

a small number of “mixed blood” Indians to achieve a position of prominence among English colonists. Born to a Creek mother and an English father, Mary’s bicultural heritage prepared her for an eventful adulthood spent in the rough-and-tumble world of Colonial Georgia Indian affairs. “Every historian of the early South should recognize the name Mary Musgrove. She is highly visible in the documentary record, and many scholars have included her in their narratives of early Georgia. But something is still missing—Mary has never received an academically rigorous account of her life and times. Steven Hahn does just that in this smoothly written, exhaustively researched, and well-organized book.”—Tyler Boulware, author of Deconstructing the Cherokee Nation “A tour-de-force. Restores Musgrove to her original complexity, revealing a woman who both lived by and defied many colonial norms and continues to resist basic categorization in the present. A must-read for anyone interested in the colonial frontier.” —Andrew K. Frank, author of Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier

Active in diplomacy, trade, and politics—affairs typically dominated by men—Mary

worked as an interpreter between the Creek Indians and the colonists—although some argue that she did so for her own gains, altering translations to sway transactions in her favor. Widowed twice in the prime of her life, Mary and her successive husbands claimed vast tracts of land in Georgia (illegally, as British officials would have it) by virtue of her Indian heritage, thereby souring her relationship with the colony’s governing officials and severely straining the colony’s relationship with the Creek Indians.

Using Mary’s life as a narrative thread, Steven Hahn explores the connected histories of

the Creek Indians and the colonies of South Carolina and Georgia. He demonstrates how the fluidity of race and gender relations on the southern frontier eventually succumbed to more rigid hierarchies that supported the region’s emerging plantation system.

Steven C. Hahn, associate professor of history at St. Olaf College, is the author of The Invention of the Creek Nation, 1670–1763.

Digging Miami Robert S. Carr Unearth Miami’s hidden treasures—literally! The pace of change of Miami since its incorporation in 1896 is staggering. The seaside land that once was home to several thousand Tequesta is now congested with roads and millions of people while skyscrapers and artificial lights dominate the landscape.

Ironically, Miami’s development continually erases monuments and traces of indigenous

people and historic pioneers yet also leads to the discovery of archaeological treasures that have lain buried for centuries. In Digging Miami, Robert Carr traces the rich 11,000-year human heritage of the Miami area from the time of its first inhabitants through the arrival of European settlers and up to the early twentieth century.

Carr was Miami-Dade County’s first archaeologist, later historic preservation director, and

held the position at a time when redevelopment efforts unearthed dozens of impressive archaeological sites, including the Cutler Site, discovered in 1985, and the controversial Miami Circle, found in 1998. Digging Miami presents a unique anatomy of this fascinating city, dispelling the myth that its history is merely a century old.

This comprehensive synthesis of South Florida’s archaeological record will astonish readers

with the depth of information available throughout an area barely above sea level. Likewise, many will be surprised to learn that modern builders, before beginning construction, must first look for signs of ancient peoples’ lives, and this search has led to the discovery of over one hundred sites within the county in recent years. In the end, we are left with the realization that Miami is more than the dream of entrepreneurs to build a tourist mecca atop dredged rock and sand; it is a fascinating, vibrant spot that has drawn people to its shores for thousands of years. Robert S. Carr is executive director of the Archaeological and Historical Conservancy, a nonprofit dedicated to the investigation and preservation of archaeological and historical sites across Florida and the Bahamas.

In spite of the intense urban development of Southeast Florida, valuable archaeological contexts are still present and continually being discovered.”—Randolph Widmer, University of Houston "Carr has exposed, documented and described in a thoroughly readable manner a unique place and 10,000 years of human habitation. Digging Miami is filled with new material that will be carefully studied by both professional archaeologists and the layman who is eager to learn about the past—a past that up to now has been mostly hidden."—Arva Moore Parks, author of Miami Then and Now

Zora Neale Hurston’s Final Decade

I Fear I Shall Never Leave This Island

Virginia Lynn Moylan

Life in a Civil War Prison David R. Bush

“A heartbreaking story.” —Tampa Bay Times “Moylan interviewed Hurston’s friends and neighbors and drew on archival material, including never-before-published letters, to offer this look at the final decade in the life of a woman who was a writer, an anthropologist, and a folklorist unafraid to challenge conventions.”—Booklist “For Zora Neale Hurston the 1950s were years in which she struggled to survive. The story of her last ten years might sound like a gloomy tale, but in Virginia Lynn Moylan’s Zora Neale Hurston’s Final Decade this is not at all the case.”—In These Times

“An intimate view of both a Confederate prisoner and his wife.”—Lawrence E. Babits, coauthor of Long, Obstinate, and Bloody: The Battle of Guilford Courthouse “A fascinating study that will appeal to a variety of audiences.” —Michael P. Gray, author of The Business of Captivity: Elmira and Its Civil War Prison

Johnson’s Island, in Sandusky, Ohio, was built in 1862 specifically to house captured Confederate officers. In part because of the educational background and access to money enjoyed by those individuals, a distinctive prison culture developed.

“Sets the record straight about Hurston’s last years—her illness and death and the presence and support of her friends, family, and community—and reveals the writer to be in those last years, as in her whole life, someone who ‘lived life on her own terms.’ A rewarding read.”—Deborah G. Plant, author of Zora Neale Hurston: A Biography of the Spirit

“Hats off to Virginia Lynn Moylan for filling in missing pieces of Hurston’s life story.”—Carla Kaplan, author of Zora Neale Hurston: A Life in Letters

Virginia Lynn Moylan, educator and independent scholar, is a founding member of the Fort Pierce, Florida, Annual Zora Festival and a contributing author to “The Inside Light”: New Critical Essays on Zora Neale Hurston.

David Bush has spent more than two decades leading

archaeological investigations at the site and has uncovered a wealth of material culture that demonstrates the magnitude of POW craft jewelry manufacture, especially rings created by officer-prisoners for loved ones back home.

In I Fear I Shall Never Leave This Island Bush pairs these dis-

trove of correspondence between Captain Wesley Makely, captured shortly after the Battle of Gettysburg, and his wife, Kate, at home in Alexandria, Virginia. Bush captures in compelling detail the physical challenges

and emotional toll of prison life and offers fascinating insights into the daily lives of prisoners, guards, and the homefront. No other collection of Civil War letters offers such a rich context; no other archaeological investigation of Civil War prisons provides such a human story. David R. Bush is professor of anthropology at Heidelberg University in Ohio and chairman of the Friends and Descendants of Johnson’s Island Civil War Prison.

The New History of Florida

Civil War Letters of the Bryant-Stephens Families of North Florida

Edited by Michael Gannon

Edited by Arch Fredric Blakey, Ann Smith Lainhart, and Winston Bryant Stephens Jr. “This is a rare volume indeed.” —Southern Living “A must read for anyone with a penchant for the Civil War in particular, but more so for its people—those who loved, laughed and cried, who married, fought and died. A family’s intimate thoughts have become a record of the era—the diction, the lifestyles, the morality and even the prejudice of the times.” —Florida Living “Rich with information about courtship, marriage, white attitudes toward slavery, extended kin ties, gender relations, family economics, and child rearing. . . . The strength of this correspondence is its invaluable contribution to nineteenth-century American social history.”—North Carolina Historical Review “A solid, well edited and fascinating group of letters from two families intertwined by marriage in which they capture the essence of the procession to and through civil war as they experienced that epic in north Florida.”—Civil War Courier “A true gem. . . . The writers are thoughtful and erudite, and what emerges is an engrossing portrait of antebellum north Florida.” —Florida Historical Quarterly

Arch Fredric Blakey, retired military historian, has written several books and numerous articles on the Civil War and Florida history, including General John H. Winder, C.S.A., a History Book Club selection. He lives near Bell, Florida. Ann Smith Lainhart, a descendant of the Bryant-Stephens families, is a professional genealogist. She lives in Peabody, Massachusetts. Winston Bryant Stephens Jr., also a descendant of the BryantStephens families, is a retired businessman in Jupiter, Florida. History

“A major new history of Florida.” —Miami Herald “A jewel, a readable narrative of Florida’s history.” —Tallahassee Democrat “Undoubtedly will become the standard reference on Florida.” —Orlando Sentinel “The reading is as interesting as it is informative.” —Naples Daily News “A welcome addition to the understanding of the Land of Flowers, from Spain to Spaceport and beyond.”—Pensacola News Journal “Florida is as much a state of mind as it is a slice of land between the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico. . . . Florida could become a place of civic texture if we understand its past. Professor Gannon’s book is a good place to begin.”—St. Petersburg Times “Incorporates much of the new scholarship that has appeared over the last twenty or so years, much of the best of it exploring the lives of African-Americans, Indians, and Florida’s common white folk. . . . For those interested in seeking out the multifaceted aspects of their native or adopted state, this is the place to start.”—Tampa Tribune

Michael Gannon is a renowned scholar and writer known as the “dean of Florida historians.” A versatile intellectual and a towering figure in his long career at the University of Florida, he has authored and edited numerous acclaimed histories. In 2010 he was honored as the winner of the inaugural Florida Lifetime Literary Achievement Award.

Though tango is much admired and discussed, very little has been written on its ongoing evolution. In this innovative work, Carolyn Merritt surveys tango history while focusing on the most recent iteration of the dance, tango nuevo, and the práctica scene that has exploded in Buenos Aires since the early 2000s.

After starting with an overview of tango, Merritt leads readers on a great adventure

through the traditional dance halls and the less formal prácticas of Buenos Aires to tango communities on both coasts of the United States. Along the way, Merritt’s personal observations show the dance’s emotional depth and the challenges dancers face in tango venues “Required reading for anyone who understands the electrifying power that dance has to transform a life. Exceptionally well written . . . her lively, engaging writing style is unique—it can go from side-splittingly funny to poignant in the time it takes to execute a boleo.” —Melissa A. Fitch, author of Side Dishes: Latina American Women, Sex, and Cultural Production

old and new. Her investigation also demonstrates how innovation, globalization, and fusion, which many associate with nuevo, have always been at work in tango.

Combining sensuous prose, provocative images, and often heartbreaking stories, this

book takes an unflinching look at the complex motivations driving the pursuit to master this intricate dance. Throughout, Merritt questions the “newness” of nuevo through portraits of machismo, violence, and elitism in contemporary tango. The result is a volume that highlights the tensions between preservation and evolution of this—or any—cultural art form.

Members of the global tango community as well as students of dance, folklore, anthropol-

ogy, and the social sciences will embrace this book. For those who are devoted to Argentine tango as dance, this book will be indispensable for understanding its most recent transformations.

The Legacy of a Red Hills Hunting Plantation Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy Robert L. Crawford and William R. Brueckheimer One man’s evolution from hunter to conservationist The Red Hills region is an idyllic setting filled with longleaf pines that stretches from Tallahassee, Florida, to Thomasville, Georgia. At its heart lies Tall Timbers, a former hunting plantation.

In 1919, sportsman Henry L. Beadel purchased the Red Hills plantation to be used for quail

hunting. As was the tradition, he conducted prescribed burnings after every hunting season in order to clear out the thick brush to make it more appealing to the nesting birds. After the U.S. Forest Service outlawed the practice in the 1920s, condemning it as harmful for the forest and its wildlife, the quail population diminished dramatically.

Astonished by this loss and encouraged by his naturalist friend Herbert L. Stoddard, Beadel

set his sights on conserving the land in order to study the effects of prescribed burnings on wildlife. Upon his death in 1958, Beadel donated the entire Tall Timbers estate to be used as an ecological research station.

The Legacy of a Red Hills Hunting Plantation traces Beadel’s evolution from sportsman and

naturalist to conservationist. Complemented by a wealth of previously unpublished, rare vintage photographs, it follows the transformation of the plantation into what its founders envisioned—a long-term plot study station, independent of government or academic funding and control.

“A fascinating history of the ecological consciousness and developing science of Florida’s Red Hills region.”—Sara Warner, author of Down to the Waterline “No other work captures the range of scientific studies so vigorously pursued over the past century from quail biology to fire ecology to ecosystem management.”—Frederick R. Davis, author of The Man Who Saved Sea Turtles

Robert L. Crawford was formerly a biologist on the Tall Timbers staff and has contributed many articles to The Auk, The Wilson Bulletin, The Oriole, and other ornithological journals. William R. Brueckheimer was the Tall Timbers Beadel Fellow from 1973 to 1984.

Before Daybreak “After the Race” and the Origins of Joyce’s Art Cóilín Owens “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. A fitting companion volume to his insightful James Joyce’s Painful Case.”—Brian W. Shaffer, Rhodes College

Joyce’s “After the Race” is a seemingly simple tale, historically unloved by critics. Yet when magnified and dismantled, the story yields astounding political, philosophic, and moral intricacy. In Before Daybreak, Cóilín Owens shows that “After the Race”

is much more than a story about Dublin at the time of the 1903 Gordon Bennett Cup Race: in reality, it is a microcosm of some of the issues most central to Joycean scholarship.

These issues include large-scale historical concerns—in this

case, radical nationalism and the centennial of Robert Emmet’s rebellion. Owens also explains the temporary and local issues reflected in Joyce’s language, organization, and silences. He traces Joyce’s narrative technique to classical, French, and Irish traditions. Additionally, “After the Race” reflects Joyce’s internal conflict between emotional allegiance to Christian orthodoxy and contemporary intellectual skepticism.

If the dawning of Joyce’s singular power, range, subtlety,

and learning can be identified in a seemingly elementary text like “After the Race,” this study implicitly contends that any Dubliners story can be mined to reveal the intertextual richness, linguistic subtlety, parodic brilliance, and cultural poignancy of Joyce’s art. Owens’s meticulous work will stimulate readers to explore Joyce’s stories with the same scrutiny in order to comprehend and relish how Joyce writes. Cóilín Owens is professor emeritus of English at George Mason University and author of James Joyce’s Painful Case. A volume in the Florida James Joyce Series, edited by Sebastian D. G. Knowles

Joyce and Militarism Greg Winston “Greg Winston has produced a marvelous, deeply researched, and lucid story of Joyce’s exploration of the personal and social effects of the European cult of militarism. This is a significant contribution to interpretations of Joyce, capitalizing on both cultural studies and political approaches. It is loaded with scholarly discoveries that will illuminate readings and delight readers.” —R. Brandon Kershner, editor of Joyce and Popular Culture “The military and their domestic counterparts, the police, were omnipresent in the world of James Joyce, as was militarism in the literature and society that formed him. Winston ably traces the impact of these realities on the literature Joyce created, works that, as acts of resistance, ultimately move toward imaginative demilitarization.”—Thomas Jackson Rice, author of Cannibal Joyce

Each of James Joyce’s major works appeared in a year defined by armed conflict in Ireland or continental Europe: Dubliners in 1914 at the outbreak of the First World War; A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man in the same year as the 1916 Easter Rising; Ulysses in February 1922, two months after the Anglo-Irish Treaty and a few months before the outbreak of the Irish Civil War; and Finnegans Wake in 1939, as Joyce complained that the German army’s westward advances upstaged the novel’s release.

In Joyce and Militarism, Greg Winston considers these mas-

terworks in light of the longstanding shadows that military culture and ideology cast over the society in which the writer lived and wrote. The first book-length study of its kind, this articulate volume offers original and interesting insights into Joyce’s response to the military presence in everything from education and athletics to prostitution and public space.

Renascent Joyce

Shaw and Feminisms

Edited by Daniel Ferrer, Sam Slote, and André Topia

On Stage and Off

“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. By persistently reexamining tradition, reinterpreting his literary heritage in light of the present, and translating and re-translating from one system of signs to another, Joyce exhibits the spirit of the greatest of Renaissance writers and artists.

Slave Breeding

Ain’t Scared of Your Jail

Sex, Violence, and Memory in African American History

Arrest, Imprisonment, and the Civil Rights Movement

Gregory D. Smithers

Zoe A. Colley

“A thought-provoking piece of scholarship that sheds light on the complex history of slave breeding in America. Smithers’s book will be hotly debated in the profession.” —Michael L. Ondaatje, University of Newcastle, Australia “As engaging as it is compelling, bold, and captivating, Smithers’s Slave Breeding pulls the reader through its pages with heartwrenching exposition of the dark and ugly chapter of what could rightly be characterized as the sexual zeitgeist of American national history.”—Tunde Adeleka, Iowa State University

From nineteenth-century abolitionists to twentieth-century filmmakers and artists, Americans have debated whether slave owners deliberately and coercively manipulated the sexual practices and marital statuses of enslaved African Americans. In this bold and provocative book, historian Gregory Smithers investigates how African Americans have narrated, remembered, and represented slave-breeding practices. He argues that while social and economic historians have downplayed the significance of slave breeding, African Americans have never been able to forget the trauma of violence and sexual coercion associated with the plantation South. By placing African American histories and memories of slave breeding within the larger context of America’s history of racial and gender discrimination, Smithers reveals how sexual exploitation was experienced and remembered by African Americans to inform how black Americans understand the political, social, and cultural nature of life in the United States. This fascinating, provocative work sheds much-needed light on African American cultural memories, the perceptions of fragile black families, and the long history of racially motivated violence against men, women, and children of color. Gregory D. Smithers teaches American history at the Virginia Commonwealth University. He is the author of Science, Sexuality, and Race in the United States and Australia, 1780s–1890s and coauthor of The Preacher and the Politician.

History/African American Studies

“Examines the history of the civil rights movement and the criminal justice system beyond the court rooms and into the arrests, jail cells, and prisons that were the locus of grassroots protests and organizing.”—Robert Cassanello, coeditor of Migration and the Transformation of the Southern Workplace since 1945

Imprisonment became a badge of honor for many protesters during the civil rights movement. With the popularization of expressions such as “jail-no-bail” and “jail-in,” civil rights activists sought to transform arrest and imprisonment from something to be feared to a platform for the cause.

Beyond Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “Letter from Birming-

ham Jail,” there has been little discussion on the incarceration experiences of civil rights activists. In her debut book, Zoe Colley does what no historian has done before by following civil rights activists inside the southern jails and prisons to explore their treatment and the different responses that civil rights organizations had to mass arrest and imprisonment.

Colley focuses on the shift in philosophical and strategic re-

sponses of civil rights protestors from seeing jail as something to be avoided to seeing it as a way to further the cause. Imprisonment became a way to expose the evils of segregation and highlighted to the rest of American society the injustice of southern racism.

By drawing together the narratives of many individuals

and organizations, Colley paints a clearer picture of how the incarceration of civil rights activists helped shape the course of the movement. She places imprisonment at the forefront of civil rights history and shows how these new attitudes toward arrest continue to impact contemporary society and shape strategies for civil disobedience.

Destination Dixie Tourism and Southern History Edited by Karen L. Cox “Leads us to the important conclusion that heritage tourism is about how people put their selves and their histories into the public eye and the conflicts of representation that arise.” —Erve Chambers, author of Native Tours “Tells numerous stories of tourism in the South—who visited, what they wanted to witness and did witness, who controlled the process, and whose stories were left out.” —Ted Ownby, director, Center for the Study of Southern Culture

Once upon a time, it was impossible to drive through the South without coming across signs to “See Rock City” or similar tourist attractions. From battlegrounds to birthplaces, heritage tourism has always been part of how the South attracts visitors—and defines itself. Yet such sites are often understudied in the scholarly literature.

As the contributors to this volume make clear, the narrative

of southern history told at these sites is often complicated by race, influenced by local politics, and shaped by competing memories. Included are essays on the meanings of New Orleans cemeteries; Stone Mountain, Georgia; historic Charleston, South Carolina; Yorktown National Battlefield; Selma, Alabama, as locus of the civil rights movement; and the homes of Mark Twain, Margaret Mitchell, and other notables.

Destination Dixie reveals that heritage tourism in the South

is about more than just marketing destinations and filling hotel rooms; it cuts to the heart of how southerners seek to shape their identity and image for a broader touring public—now often made up of northerners and southerners alike. Karen L. Cox is professor of history at the University of North Carolina–Charlotte and the author of Dixie’s Daughters: The

James Buchanan and the Coming of the Civil War Edited by John W. Quist and Michael J. Birkner “Provides scholars with a fresh and thoughtful examination of the first administration that had to deal with Southern secession.” —Jonathan M. Atkins, author of Parties, Politics, and the Sectional Conflict in Tennessee, 1832–1861

As James Buchanan took office in 1857, the United States found itself at a crossroads. Dissolution of the Union had been averted and the Democratic Party maintained control of the federal government, but the nation watched to see if Pennsylvania’s first president could make good on his promise to calm sectional tensions.

Despite Buchanan’s central role in a crucial hour in U.S. his-

tory, few presidents have been more ignored by historians. In assembling the essays for this volume, John Quist and Michael Birkner have asked leading scholars to reconsider whether Buchanan’s failures stemmed from his own mistakes or from circumstances that no president could have overcome.

Buchanan’s dealings with Utah shed light on his handling of

the secession crisis. His approach to Dred Scott reinforces the image of a president whose doughface views were less a matter of hypocrisy than a thorough identification with Southern interests. Essays on the secession crisis provide fodder for debate about the strengths and limitations of presidential authority in an existential moment for the young nation.

Although the essays in this collection offer widely differing

interpretations of Buchanan’s presidency, they all grapple honestly with the complexities of the issues faced by the man who sat in the White House prior to the towering figure of Lincoln and contribute to a deeper understanding of a turbulent and formative era.

Birkner is Franklin Professor of Liberal Arts and professor of history at Gettysburg College and editor of James Buchanan and the Political Crisis of the 1850s.

Consent of the Damned Ordinary Argentinians in the Dirty War David M. K. Sheinin “Provides an incredibly provocative and comprehensive analysis. Wonderfully readable and fast paced.”—Kristin Ruggiero, University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee “Focuses on historical reality versus historical memory in an innovative way that poses some vital questions concerning the Argentine people’s relationship with the dictatorship that involved a larger measure of consent or acquiescence than previous scholars, analyses, and political groups have been willing either to admit or to explore. Sheinin does a fine job in conveying this ambiguity of the majority population toward dictatorial rule. An excellent and original piece of work.”—Michael E. Donoghue, Marquette University

Under violent military dictatorship, Operation Condor and the Dirty War scarred Argentina from the mid-1970s to the early 1980s, leaving behind a legacy of repression, state terror, and political murder. Even today, the now-democratic Argentine government attempts to repair the damage of these atrocities by making human rights a policy priority. But what about the other Dirty War, during which Argentine civilians—including indigenous populations—and foreign powers ignored and even abetted the state’s vicious crimes against humanity? In this groundbreaking new work, David Sheinin draws on previously classified Argentine government documents, human rights lawsuits, and archived propaganda to illustrate the military-constructed fantasy of bloodshed as a public defense of human rights. Exploring the reactions of civilians and the international community to the daily carnage, Sheinin unearths how compliance with the dictatorship perpetuated the violence that defined a nation. This new approach to the history of human rights in Argentina will change how we understand dictatorship, democracy, and state terror. David M. K. Sheinin, professor of history at Trent University, is the author of five books, including Argentina and the United States: An Alliance Contained.

Distilling the Influence of Alcohol Aguardiente in Guatemalan History Edited by David Carey Jr. “This important collection of essays creatively uses the prism of alcohol to increase our understanding of Guatemala’s role in the broader Atlantic world and to unravel the complex negotiations that shaped the construction of this diverse regional context.”—Frederick H. Smith, author of Caribbean Rum: A Social and Economic History “With case studies from Mam, Q’anjob’al, Kaqchikel, and African American communities, this volume provides fine-grained historical accounts that enrich our understanding of everyday life in Guatemala while providing provocative interpretive takes on their implications.”—Todd Little-Siebold, College of the Atlantic

Sugar, coffee, corn, and chocolate have long dominated the study of Central American commerce, and researchers tend to overlook one other equally significant commodity: alcohol. Often illicitly produced and consumed, aguardiente (distilled sugar cane spirits or rum) was central to Guatemalan daily life, though scholars have often neglected its fundamental role in the country’s development. Throughout world history, alcohol has helped build family livelihoods, boost local economies, and forge nations. The alcohol economy also helped shape Guatemala’s turbulent categories of ethnicity, race, class, and gender, as these essays demonstrate. Established and emerging Guatemalan historians investigate aguardiente’s role from the colonial era to the twentieth century, drawing from archival documents, oral histories, and ethnographic sources. Topics include women in the alcohol trade, taverns as places of social unrest, and tension between Maya and State authority. David Carey Jr. is professor of history and women and gender studies at the University of Southern Maine and author of Engendering Mayan History: Kaqchikel Women as Agents and Conduits of the Past, 1874–1970, and Our Elders Teach Us: MayaKaqchikel Historical Perspectives.

Negotiated Settlements

Capital of the Aztec Empire

Andean Communities and Landscapes under Inka and Spanish Colonialism

José Luis de Rojas

Steven A. Wernke “An up-to-date and especially thoughtful study of the Aztec capital city of Tenochtitlan, delving into the many and varied issues and problems faced by any city.”—Frances F. Berdan, author of The Aztecs of Central Mexico “Provides a comprehensive view of life in the Aztec capital city, bringing together a wide variety of archaeological and documentary information to examine all aspects of the city’s history, organization, and daily life.” —Janine Gasco, coeditor of The Legacy of Mesoamerica

“A refreshing and long overdue perspective in historical archaeology that has the potential to provide new insights into the ways in which colonial relations were played out not just in the Colca Valley but elsewhere as well. This is a groundbreaking book that will inspire historical archaeologists to systematically examine the broader social and natural landscapes in which individual sites are located.” —Mary L. Van Buren, Colorado State University

This multidisciplinary—indeed, transdisciplinary—combination of archaeological, historical, and ethnographic 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.

Ancient Maya Pottery

Motul de San José

Classification, Analysis, and Interpretation

Politics, History, and Economy in a Classic Maya Polity

Edited by James John Aimers “Aimers has brought together leading Maya ceramicists who provide their candid views on how they classify pottery. 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: White Gold of the Ancient Maya “At last, we have the opportunity to learn the potential strengths as well as the pitfalls of a single method for the study of the prehistoric Maya.”—Fred Valdez Jr., coeditor of Ancient Maya Commoners “An intriguing journey through an analytical technique that is foundational to building deep and complex histories yet is deployed with a flexibility that some accept and others question.”—Patricia A. McAnany, University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill “Aimers has pulled together a series of theoretical, methodological, and substantive papers by prominent Maya ceramicists that evaluate the development, current utility, and limitations of the typevariety method.”—E. Wyllys Andrews, Tulane University

The ancient Maya produced a broad range of ceramics that has attracted concerted scholarly attention for over a century. Pottery sherds—the most abundant artifacts recovered from sites—reveal much about artistic expression, religious ritual, economic systems, cooking traditions, and cultural exchange in Maya society.

Today, nearly every Maya archaeologist uses the type-

variety classificatory framework for studying sherd collections. 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 stateof-the-art thinking. The result is a book that serves both as a valuable resource for archaeologists involved in pottery classification, analysis, and interpretation and as an illuminating exploration of ancient Maya culture.

Edited by Antonia E. Foias and Kitty F. Emery “This volume is the first of its kind. A complex mosaic of how a relatively small Late Classic Maya polity was economically, socially, and politically organized. A must-read for all Maya scholars.”—James F. Garber, editor of The Ancient Maya of the Belize Valley “The editors have assembled a remarkable array of evidence, including several innovative analytical methods. The product is a synthetic model that will shape how we understand and study Classic Maya political economy for the next several decades.”—Jason Yaeger, coeditor of Classic Maya Provincial Politics

Scholars have long debated the nature of Maya political organization during the Classic period (AD 250–950). Complex questions regarding political centralization, economic change, and their role in the rise and collapse of the civilization have been examined and re-examined. Antonia Foias and Kitty Emery have assembled a broad collection of essays all focused on a single polity, that of Motul de San José. By presenting a coherent interdisciplinary body of archaeological and environmental data, the volume offers an intensely deep, focused investigation of the various models of the ancient Maya political and economic systems. Research conducted over six seasons of fieldwork reveals a more centralized political system than expected and uncovers the workings of the ancient economic structure. The contributors offer new details concerning how involved royals and nonroyal elites were in the politics of nearby states, as well as an extensive tribute system.

Change on a Temporal and Spatial Frontier.

The Archaeology and Historical Ecology of Small Scale Economies Edited by Victor D. Thompson and James C. Waggoner Jr. “An important book that brings together a global set of in-depth studies of small scale hunter-gatherer and horticultural societies and explores the myriad of ways people shape and manage their landscapes. Perhaps most important, this volume shows how archaeological data are relevant to our understanding of modern human-environment relationships.”—Matthew Hill Jr., University of Iowa “Demonstrates what should have been intuitively understood long ago, that groups of humans did not just interact with their environment but shaped it.”—Brad Logan, Kansas State University

Most research into humans’ impact on the environment has focused on large-scale societies; a corollary assumption has been that small scale economies are sustainable and in harmony with nature. The contributors to this volume challenge this notion, revealing how such communities shaped their environment—and not always in a positive way.

Offering case studies from around the world—from Brazil

to Japan, Denmark to the Rocky Mountains—the chapters empirically demonstrate the substantial transformations of the surrounding landscape made by hunter-gatherer and limited horticultural societies. Summarizing previous research as well as presenting new data, this book shows that the environmental impact and legacy of societies are not always proportional to their size.

Understanding that our species leaves a footprint wherever

it has been leads to both a better understanding of our prehistoric past and to deeper implications for our future relationship to the world around us. Victor D. Thompson is assistant professor of anthropology at Ohio State University. James C. Waggoner Jr. (1971–2009) conducted archaeological research in the southeastern United States.

Bioarchaeology and Behavior The People of the Ancient Near East Edited by Megan A. Perry “A well-edited and organized book that will provide anyone interested in the ancient Middle East the opportunity to encounter the quality and diversity of skeletal research being conducted in the region.” —Jerome C. Rose, University of Arkansas “A welcome contribution to the literature on burial practices and human skeletal remains.” —Michelle Bonogofsky, editor of The Bioarchaeology of the Human Head

While mortuary ruins have long fascinated archaeologists and art historians interested in the cultures of the Near East and eastern Mediterranean, the human skeletal remains contained in the tombs of this region have garnered less attention. In Bioarchaeology and Behavior, Megan Perry presents a collection of essays that aims a spotlight on the investigation of the ancient inhabitants of the circum-Mediterranean area. Composed of eight diverse papers, this volume synthesizes recent research on human skeletal remains and their archaeological and historical contexts in this region. Utilizing an environmental, social, and political framework, the contributors present scholarly case studies on such topics as the region’s mortuary archaeology, genetic investigations of migration patterns, and the ancient populations’ health, disease, and diet. Other key anthropological issues addressed in this volume include the effects of the domestication of plants and animals, the rise of state-level formations, and the role of religion in society. Ultimately, this collection will provide anthropologists, archaeologists, and bioarchaeologists with an important foundation for future research in the Near East and eastern Mediterranean. Megan A. Perry is associate professor of anthropology at East Carolina University. She is a contributor to History of Paleopathology.

The Archaeology of Forts and Battlefields

The Archaeology of Consumer Culture

The Archaeology of American Capitalism

David R. Starbuck

Paul R. Mullins

Christopher N. Matthews

“A highly readable archaeological survey of American war sites, describing ways archaeologists use scientific techniques to understand the lives that were lived and lost during war.” —Plymouth Magazine “This handbook is for people interested in locating, documenting, and scientifically excavating forts and battlefields, including underwater sites. Case studies illustrate how archaeologists use the latest technology to locate and study the military history of the site, including the lives, with all their hardships, of the men and women involved.”—American Archaeology Surveying a broad range of both terrestrial and underwater sites, Starbuck uses the lens of military conflict to explain how forensic anthropology has helped greatly in assigning “identity” to forgotten soldiers, and how archaeology has helped us to protect sites, accurately reconstruct forts and battlefields, and better understand the lives lived and lost in those locations. David R. Starbuck, associate professor of anthropology and sociology at Plymouth State University, is the author of eight books including Massacre at Fort William Henry and Rangers and Redcoats on the Hudson. A volume in the series The American Experience in Archaeological Perspective, edited by Michael S. Nassaney

“Offers a survey of all the work that is being done to try to better understand how Americans have shopped.” —Boston Globe “A much-needed overview of the many ways that historical archaeologists in America have engaged the subject of consumption. [Mullins] engages in a thoughtful conversation with a wide range of scholars—at once demonstrating historical archaeology’s value to those outside of historical archaeology while also making connections, raising questions, and offering caveats for historical archaeologists to consider in future studies of the subject.”—Hadley Kruczek-Aaron, coauthor of Archaeological Investigations of the Shaker Farm, Ashburnham, Massachusetts Paul Mullins sifts through this continent’s historical archaeological record to trace the evolution of North American consumer culture. He explores the social and economic dynamics that have shaped American capitalism from the rise of mass production techniques of the eighteenth century to the unparalleled dominance of twentieth-century mass consumer culture. Paul R. Mullins, professor of anthropology at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis, is the author of Race and Affluence: An Archaeology of African America and Consumer Culture and Glazed America: A History of the Doughnut. A volume in the series The American Experience in Archaeological Perspective, edited by Michael S. Nassaney

“Explores such topics as EuropeanIndian relations, early colonial culture change, urbanization, and mass consumption.” —Chronicle Review “Examines the material culture of capitalism in America and illustrates its development from the colonial to the modern eras. It is the first comparative treatment in archaeology to do so.” —American Archaeology “A scholarly and fascinating study, enhanced with useful indexes, bibliography, and much more, making a core addition to any historical or economic history collections in community and college libraries.” —Midwest Book Review “Matthews has offered a bold new interpretation of the archaeology of capitalism. This book will take historical archaeology in exciting new directions of inquiry.” —Charles E. Orser Jr., author of The Archaeology of Race and Racialization in Historic America “Does a very good job making sense of an exceptionally complex scholarship on capitalism that is routinely invoked in historical archaeology. . . . This book is a sound primer for undergraduate and graduate students alike.”—Paul R. Mullins, author of Race and Affluence Christopher N.

The Tertiary Grip of Violence in the Sudan

Edited by Mark Nathan Cohen and Gillian M. M. Crane-Kramer

Edited by Kevin Winker

Abdullahi A. Gallab

“Intended as a supplement and update for Cohen and Armelagos’s classic Paleopathology at the Origins of Agriculture, Cohen and Crane-Kramer’s volume succeeds on both counts and stands as a valuable contribution to ongoing research of the effects of the momentous changes in subsistence and population size and density on human health throughout the past 10,000 years. . . . The final chapter, the editors’ summation, is a concise gem. . . . Without question, this is a volume that every professional bioarchaeologist should purchase.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “While Cohen emphasizes a challenge to a paradigm that health improves through time, this collection of papers allows us to see that health in the past did not necessarily decline through time. As Larsen says in his foreword, the papers demonstrate that the trends in the ‘quality of life and well-being . . . are more complex than was previously imagined.’”—Cambridge Archaeological Journal Mark Nathan Cohen is University Distinguished Teaching Professor of Anthropology at the State University of New York, Plattsburgh. Gillian M. M. Crane-Kramer teaches anthropology at the State University of New York, Plattsburgh.

“The binding forces that can be felt in each story are the intense interest that each researcher has for his field of study and the love they all share for the natural world that they have devoted their lives to studying.”—Choice “A significant contribution to the history of biological exploration, this book is a mustread for anyone considering biological field work in the region—or the amateur, armchair fieldworker who wonders what those trips were really like.”—Ornithological Newsletter “Like all good anthologies this one leaves an overall impression. Reading these recollections, many of them experienced when the authors were graduate students, makes one wonder if previous biologists might not have possessed more savvy and stamina than today’s.”—Ecology “Looks beyond the reports and scientific papers of work from Miguel Alvarez del Toro, Charles Sibley and John T. Emlen Jr. to the adventure, sense of discovery, and unexpected humor of their time in the field.”—Outdoors Unlimited Online Kevin Winker is curator of birds and professor of biology and wildlife at the University of Alaska Museum and the Institute of Arctic Biology at the University of Alaska– Fairbanks.

“Provides a wealth of detail for the scholar of Sudan’s colonial era.” —International Affairs “This original and revealing book is a significant contribution to the understanding of the conflicts that have gripped the Sudan for decades and may well end only in the division of the country.”—Peter Woodward, author of Sudan 1898–1989 and U.S. Foreign Policy and the Horn of Africa A Civil Society Deferred chronicles the socio­political history and development of violence in the Sudan and explores how it has crippled the state, retarded the development of a national identity, and ravaged the social and material lives of its citizens. In explaining the impact of violence on modern Sudanese national identity, stability, and people, A Civil Society Deferred draws upon academic, archival, and a variety of oral and written material, as well as the author’s personal experiences. This provocative volume illuminates the factors that continue to hamper the Sudan’s ability to develop into a civil society and create a unified and accepted national identity. Abdullahi A. Gallab, assistant professor of African and African American religious studies at Arizona State University, is the author of The First Islamist Republic: Development and Disintegration of Islamism in the Sudan.

Nelson O`Ceallaigh Ritschel

Laura Barbas-Rhoden

M. Laetitia Cairoli “Good reading material for people interested in the impact of industrialization on women in the developing regions of the world.”—Journal of International Women’s Studies “Based on a year of intensive research among Fes factory girls in 1995. . . . It is written in the style of a memoir and is very accessible.”—Friends of Morocco “A very realistic and readable ethnography.”—Susan Schaefer Davis, author of Adolescence in a Moroccan Town “Offers a portrait of the lives of Moroccan women working in factories. With sensitivity and great honesty, Cairoli evokes the struggles women face as they enter an exploitative labor force and challenge cultural norms. A poignant and devastating portrayal of the underside of globalization.”—Rachel Newcomb, author of Women of Fes: Ambiguities of Urban Life in Morocco Laetitia Cairoli conveys a general sense of the working life of women in Morocco by describing daily life inside a Moroccan sewing factory. She also reveals the additional work they face inside their homes. More than an ethnography, this volume is also for those who want to better understand what life is like for a new generation of young women just entering the workforce. M. Laetitia Cairoli is adjunct professor of anthropology at Montclair State University.

“The upshot of Ritschel’s nuanced argument is that Shaw, both directly and indirectly, helped shape the development of belligerent socialism in Ireland through his provocations with Synge and Connolly.” —Choice

“Reveals a solid understanding of ecocriticism, various points of view (postcolonial, Marxist, ecofeminist), and ecological imagination in modern Latin American fiction. Good notes and bibliography.” —Choice

“With great skill, Ritschel has constructed a gripping intellectual narrative out of the Irish national debate over socialism that led to the Easter Uprising of 1916.”—John A. Bertolini, author of The Playwriting Self of Bernard Shaw

“Analyzes works depicting Argentina at the turn of the nineteenth century, the Amazon in the mid-twentieth century, Costa Rica in the late twentieth century, and Mesoamerica in the future.”—Chronicle Review

“Ritschel’s reputation as one of the most insightful writers on the interplay of early Irish theater and the broader culture within which it operated is confirmed again.” —Gary A. Richardson, coauthor of American Drama George Bernard Shaw has always been regarded as a political provocateur and socialist with ideas that reflected a complicated public philosophy. Scholarship abounds on Shaw’s politics, but Nelson Ritschel’s compelling study is the first to explore how Shaw’s presence in Irish radical debate manifested itself not only through his direct contributions but also through the way he and his efforts were engaged by others. Nelson O`Ceallaigh Ritschel, professor of humanities at Massachusetts Maritime Academy, is the author of Synge and Irish Nationalism. A volume in the Florida Bernard Shaw Series, edited by R. F. Dietrich

“A welcome and needed contribution to the global dialogues dedicated to the environment. It also highlights the importance authors of fiction play in denouncing abuses and practices within countries in which critiques of government policies can lead to persecution and ostracism.”—Mary Ann Gosser Esquilín, Florida Atlantic University From the rainforests of the Amazon to the windswept lands of Tierra del Fuego, and encompassing the era of nineteenthcentury imperialism through the present age of transnational commerce and communication, Laura Barbas-Rhoden pushes the ecocriticism discussion beyond the realm of “nature writing” and demonstrates that ecocritical readings of Latin American topics must take into account social, racial, and gender injustices. She addresses postapocalyptic fiction that speaks to a fear of environmental collapse and reminds North American readers that the environments of Latin America are rich and diverse, encompassing both rural and urban extremes. Laura Barbas-Rhoden is associate professor of foreign languages at Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Carolina.

“This multilayered analysis . . . leads the author to explore fundamental Latin American dilemmas of citizenship and nationality at the levels of both the elite and the common person. Although Golash-Boza is flexible about how consideration of African ancestry can be accomplished (notably in Peru), she makes a case for full participation in Peruvian life at all levels for those of African descent.” —Choice “Shows that the Afro-Peruvian experience must be part of any serious discussion of race, ethnicity, or contemporary society in Peru. This book will spark scholarly debate and inspire student discussion.”—Leo J. Garofalo, coeditor of Afro-Latino Voices “A much-needed addition to the literature on racial dynamics in Latin America. Through the words of her research subjects, Golash-Boza masterfully cautions the field against the facile equalization of color and race in Latin America. And, in a bold twist, she also warns against the reification of black culture and state officialization of race.”—Stanley R. Bailey, author of Legacies of Race Tanya Maria Golash-Boza, assistant professor of sociology and American studies at the University of Kansas, is the author of Immigration Nation?. A volume in the series New World Diasporas, edited by Kevin A. Yelvington

“Constructs a useful transnational framework to analyze the fragmentation of a once united territory into separate sociopolitical entities in the Central American region, and to show how this region has yet retained significant interconnectivity across those national boundaries. A valuable addition to the collections of most academic libraries.”—Choice “Finally, a study that moves beyond abstract assertions of the importance of a transnational perspective to demonstrate compellingly why transnationalism matters in the specific context of Central America. This is a rich, interdisciplinary look at regional history, politics, and society—of immense value.”—Thomas Legler, coeditor of Promoting Democracy in the Americas Luis Roniger argues for the importance of examining the connected history, close relationships, and mutual impact of the societies of Central America upon one another. Eschewing well-trod theoretical approaches that do not account for the existence of transnational dynamics before the current stage of globalization, he identifies recurring trends of state fragmentation and attempts at reunification or social and political association in the region over the past two centuries. Luis Roniger, Reynolds Professor of Latin American Studies at Wake Forest University, is the author of fourteen books, including The Legacy of Human Rights Violations in the Southern Cone.

“A welcome contribution both because Caribbean coast laborers have received relatively little attention and because Opie does such an excellent job of placing black migrants at the center of Guatemalan and Caribbean history.”—Labor “This book makes a valuable contribution to the study of the black immigrant workers of Guatemala.”—Mesoamérica “A significant contribution that enriches historical narratives. This is a wonderful case study that complicates Latin American history, and particularly labor history in that region, by emphasizing the positive role played by black migrants in labor mobilization in Guatemala.”—Jean Muteba Rahier, Florida International University In the late nineteenth century, many Central American governments and countries sought to fill low-paying jobs and develop their economies by recruiting black American and West Indian laborers. Frederick Opie offers a revisionist interpretation of these workers, who were often depicted as simple victims with little, if any, enduring legacy. Frederick Douglass Opie, professor of history and foodways at Babson College, is the author of Hog and Hominy: Soul Food from Africa to America. A volume in the series Working in the Americas, edited by Richard Greenwald and Timothy J. Minchin.

The Challenge of Blackness The Institute of the Black World and Political Activism in the 1970s Derrick E. White “Presents a perceptive analysis and (inter) disciplinary discourse grounded in impeccable scholarship. Clearly, this will be among the most significant new books to be published in Africana Studies this year.”—James Turner, Cornell University “Poignantly chronicles the rise and fall of the IBW and assesses its role as progenitor of radical scholarship, Black Studies, and the African Diaspora. Written in provocative yet accessible prose, this book is sure to spark debate on the intense relationship between Black Power, Marxism, and anticolonial politics during the long seventies.”—Paul Ortiz, University of Florida “Discusses the challenges faced by a visionary organization as it struggled with the turbulent 1970s. An excellent contribution to Black Power Studies and social movement research.”—Fabio Rojas, University of Indiana A think tank based in Atlanta, the Institute of the Black World sought to answer Martin Luther King Jr.’s question “Where do we go from here?” Its pragmatic solution was to organize a broad array of leading Black activists, scholars, and intellectuals to develop academic, political, and cultural strategies designed to expand the Black Freedom Struggle into a new decade.

From Sun Cities to The Villages A History of Active Adult, AgeRestricted Communities Judith Ann Trolander “In a carefully researched text, Trolander lays out the historical development from Youngstown, Arizona, in 1954 to The Villages at present. . . . An important contribution to studies in housing, aging, and social trends.”—Choice “A highly significant work that deserves the attention of urbanists, planners, sociologists of aging, and historians of post-1945 America.”—Jon C. Teaford, author of The American Suburb “A clear, concise historical perspective on the development of age-restricted, active adult communities and the developers who led the way. It provides the missing piece to the puzzle in housing studies for older adults.”—Helen C. Dillon, University of Indianapolis Judith Ann Trolander has written the first book-length history of the “active adult” lifestyle. Examining the origins, development, failures, and challenges of these communities as the baby boomer population continues to age, she offers a truly original defense of a sometimes controversial aspect of American life.

The Door of Hope Republican Presidents and the First Southern Strategy, 1877–1933 Edward O.

A significant contribution.”—Choice “This is new political history of the very best kind and history that helps explain today’s politics of white resentment as well as Republican disdain for the public sector and government itself.”—David W. Blight, author of American Oracle “A fascinating, heartbreaking story with much resonance to twenty-first-century American politics and race relations.” —John Milton Cooper Jr., E.
