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. ~700 Ma

1500 AD

In the coming months, celebrations like Viva Florida 500 will commemorate the arrival of Ponce de León in La Florida and recognize 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.

Finding the Fountain of Youth Ponce de León and Florida’s Magical Waters Rick Kilby The myth that defines the state Juan Ponce de León reached the shores of Florida on April 2, 1513. Although the myth of the conquistador’s quest for the fountain of youth was debunked long ago, his fabled search remains inextricably tied to the image of the Sunshine State.

Featuring reproductions of hundreds of eye-catching postcards, vintage advertise-

postcards, and photos is enough

Kilby’s delightful collection of images demonstrates how “magical” waters and their

restorative powers have been used to promote the state to tourists and new residents alike. Moving beyond advertising and kitsch, Kilby carries the story into the present day, addressing the very real problem of protecting Florida’s fragile springs and aquifers. Once revered by the Timucua and Calusa, then celebrated by writers such as William Bartram and Harriet Beecher Stowe, these pristine waters were rechristened Panacea Springs or Espiritu Santo Springs, new names meant to extol their sacred nature to visitors in polka-dotted bathing suits and Panama hats.

Snorkeling the Florida Keys Brad Bertelli Exploring the Florida Reef, from shipwrecks to ecological marvels The Florida Reef is known for its brilliant corals as much as it is for sunken pirate treasure. From Carysfort Reef to Indian Key to Dry Tortugas National Park, the Florida Keys provide many excellent and diverse snorkeling opportunities. Snorkeling the Florida Keys dives into more than forty sites, including reefs, wrecks, and beaches.

The third largest barrier reef system in the world runs along the east side of the Florida

Keys and is fed by the nutrient-rich waters of the Gulf Stream, which support the abundant growth of bright-hued corals. These warm waters are also home to spectacular animal life. From seahorses to manatees, nature’s most intriguing wonders can be found right around an outcropping of coral or grazing in algae. “A thinking person’s guide to

provides practical travel advice and GPS coordinates to easily access each site, as well as useful information such as water depth, key features, notable shipwrecks, and other engrossing historical facts. Snorkeling the Florida Keys is a great read and a useful guide for divers seeking adventure. It is also suited for armchair travelers, who, without setting a fin in the water, can enjoy the conquests and mishaps of the larger-than-life historical figures who sailed the great Florida Reef.

The Reluctant Republican My Fight for the Moderate Majority Barbara F. Olschner An astute analysis of what is wrong with the Grand Old Party The 2012 presidential election demonstrated once again that Florida may be the most purple state in the Union. Northwest Florida, however, remains staunchly Republican.

Barbara Olschner believes in her party’s founding principles: lower taxes, less regulation,

limited government, and individual accountability. But she also believes in governing through compromise, in respectfully listening to opponents’ viewpoints, and in the possibility that a Republican can be fiscally but not socially conservative. In hindsight, it isn’t surprising that when she ran for Congress at the height of the Tea Party’s influence she was branded an elitist and a RINO (Republican in Name Only)—and finished dead last.

The Reluctant Republican traces her campaign and her realization that the current leader-

ship of her party demands strict adherence to its ideology. Not only are different viewpoints not tolerated, but those who espouse them are vilified for their disloyalty.

Olschner is reluctant to remain in the party but more reluctant to leave. She refuses to

accept the current dogma but also refuses to abandon her conservatism. Her fight for civility and her refusal to kowtow to the lowest common denominator reveal much about what passes for politics in the Sunshine State—and in America.

“This is the memoir of a private citizen who runs for Congress as an idealistic conservative. She confronts an overwhelming tide of indifference to the Constitution and disrespect for compromise as an essential and honorable element of democracy. It’s a cry

Selling Guantánamo Exploding the Propaganda Surrounding America’s Most Notorious Military Prison John Hickman Reassessing the Bush and Obama administrations’ justifications In the aftermath of 9/11, few questioned the political narrative provided by the White House about Guantánamo and the steady stream of prisoners delivered there from half a world away. The Bush administration gave various rationales for the detention of the prisoners captured in the War on Terror: they represented extraordinary threats to the American people, possessed valuable enemy intelligence, and were awaiting prosecution for terrorism or war crimes. Both explicitly and implicitly, journalists, pundits, lawyers, academics, and even released prisoners who authored books about the island prison endorsed elements of the official narrative. “Challenges nearly all of our

of the available record, backed by a deep understanding of the political reality.”—Joseph Margulies, author of Guantánamo and the Abuse of Presidential Power

By looking at historical examples of prisoners held in continued custody during asymmetric

conflicts and national security crises—including different tribes of Native Americans held at Fort Pickens and in St. Augustine, British Fascists imprisoned on the Isle of Man, and Haitian “boat people” detained at Guantánamo—Hickman unravels the putative from the proven and reveals exactly why the current internment of prisoners at the infamous naval base is so unprecedented and unique. Constructing his argument from the existing domestic and international record, he offers an alternate theory that completely contradicts the narrative spun by the Bush administration: the prisoners were put on display as symbols of military victory, punished as substitutes for the architects of 9/11 who remained at large, and used as pawns in a neoconservative move to signal a new U.S. foreign policy that ignored the United Nations, disregarded the Geneva Conventions, and scoffed at the International Criminal Court.

Flowers in the Desert The Search for Chile’s Disappeared Second edition Paula Allen Foreword by Isabel Allende

A heartrending quest for truth and justice “A poignant and poetic take on human rights.”—Bernardita Llanos, author of Passionate Subjects/Split Subjects in Twentieth-Century Literature in Chile On September 11, 1973, with the backing of the U.S. government, General Augusto Pinochet overthrew the socialist government of Chilean president Salvador Allende. In the weeks that followed, thousands of ordinary citizens began to vanish from the cities and villages of Chile, taken from their homes, workplaces, and universities. The “disappeared” included twenty-six men from the northern town of Calama. For seventeen years their wives, mothers, daughters, and sisters searched the Atacama desert, the driest place on each, digging with shovels under a scorching sun, until they finally found the mass grave containing the crushed remains of their loved ones. Paula Allen documented their quest, and her mesmerizing black and white photographs, along with bilingual text, capture the courageous story of the women of Calama. Flowers in the Desert puts a human face on this dark period of history that affected not only Chile but much of Latin America and the world. Paula Allen is a documentary photographer whose work spans more than three decades. Her photographs have appeared in numerous publications, including the New York Times Magazine, Newsweek, U.S. News and World Report, Paris Match, the London Independent Magazine, Art in America, Mother Jones, Oprah, People, Marie Claire, Glamour, and others. Her work on behalf of human rights organizations has taken her to Kosovo, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Haiti, and post-Katrina New Orleans.

“A valuable work that revolves around a painful period of our history. I congratulate Paula Allen on her effort and endeavor to highlight the role of Chilean women and her contribution to peace, truth, and justice which are values cherished by all of us. The book is also an eloquent testimony of the courage of the Chilean women that was so important for the recovery of our democracy.” —Ricardo Lagos, former president of Chile “Teaches us about the determination of a group of women searching for their relatives in the most arid and inhospitable place on earth, as well as the brutality of the Pinochet regime.”—Silvia Borzutzky, coeditor of The Bachelet Government

Heart and Soul of Florida Sacred Sites and Historic Architecture Elsbeth Gordon Landmarks of the human spirit

“Emphasizes the importance of many Spanish Colonial sites and puts them in context with American history.” —Donald A. Crichlow, architect

Red-ochre burial mounds, mysterious artifacts in ponds, giant circles carved in limestone, Spanish mission chapels, frontier houses of worship, gothic cathedrals, courthouses, post offices: eight thousand years of Floridians’ lives can be experienced through the state’s human-made environment. A sweeping saga of Florida’s built landscape from 6000 BC to the present, Heart and Soul of Florida begins with pre-Columbian archaeological sites. Architectural historian Elsbeth Gordon re-creates the original atmosphere of many such ancient places. These burial and worship arrangements serve as printed watermarks of Native American traditions, grounding Florida’s identity as time passes. Spanish Colonial architecture provides Florida with a second important layer of cultural history. This book is filled with accounts of remarkable architectural activity from this period: it tells the story of the Spanish mission of Nombre de Dios (1580–1793) and compares the Spanish Royal Ordinances of 1573 with the town plan of St. Augustine today. Photographs, drawings, and maps make these tales even more absorbing and tangible. Ending with Florida’s bold pioneering and dynamic entrepreneurial era, Gordon provides a much-needed broad synthesis of the state’s rich architectural heritage. She expands the definition of “sacred space” by including preserved historic civic buildings, like the State Capitol, to fully examine the multitude of places that nurture the spirits of Florida’s people. Gordon inspires the general and professional public to see the built environment as a rich continuum of history and identity that shaped and continues to impact Florida’s culture—from the mundane to the transcendent. These humanizing places, many of which endure permanently in the landscape, represent an “architecture of the soul.” Elsbeth “Buff” Gordon is research associate at the Historic St. Augustine Research Institute and currently serves on the board of directors for the St. Augustine Archaeological Association. She is the author of Florida’s Colonial Architectural Heritage.

He also told women to go easy on cheating husbands, explaining “they are simply trying to hold on to their youth”— a statement made the same year as the birth of a boy who was likely his illegitimate son.

Most people have never imagined the often dicey, comical, and sometimes bizarre job of a

Florida game warden. Backcountry Lawman tells what it’s like to catch an armed poacher in the act—alone, at night, without backup or a decent radio to call for help. These stories describe the cat-and-mouse games often played between game wardens and poachers of ducks, tur-

Landscaping with Conifers and Ginkgo for the Southeast Tom Cox and John M. Ruter The first reference of its kind for southern gardens Conifers are among the most beautiful and versatile of all landscape plants, offering yearround variety of color, form, and texture. They remain underutilized in the South, in part because of the common misconception that they are not adaptable to the climate. Laying such claims to rest, this book introduces readers to conifers that grow successfully in southern landscapes.

Gardeners in the South traditionally have relied on the mass of spectacular spring blooms

as the mainstay of their landscapes. However, with the addition of conifers or cultivars of the genus ginkgo, homeowners can enjoy twelve months of low-maintenance color. Tom Cox and John Ruter present a variety of conifers that grow from Virginia to Florida to Texas. They provide tips on growing, pruning, preventing disease and pest problems, and proper selection and cultivation requirements—all unique to the Southeast.

In short, this guide includes essential information about what to buy, where to plant it, and

how to maintain it. It also offers advice on what to expect from mature conifers and ginkgo while suggesting genera and species that have proved adaptable and cultivars that have performed well in the southeastern United States. Landscaping with Conifers and Ginkgo for the Southeast is a compilation of years of research and horticulture experience that will aid anyone, whether novice or professional, in creating beautiful year-round landscapes. Tom Cox, past president of the American Conifer Society, is the founder and owner of Cox Arboretum and Gardens in Canton, Georgia. John M. Ruter, Allan M. Armitage Endowed Professor of Horticulture at the University of Georgia, is a teacher, ornamental plant breeder, and author or coauthor of over 400 publications and two books.

Florida Wildflowers A Comprehensive Guide Walter Kingsley Taylor A major overhaul of a botanical classic with valuable new information! “Taylor’s guide will help readers recognize and identify wildflowers in a different way, not principally by their color or family group, but by where they’re most likely to be found growing—their natural habitat.”—Gainesville Sun “This new field guide is the best yet for Florida wildflowers. . . . Each entry includes a description, time of flowering, habitat, Florida distribution, and often a comment field that discusses related species, etymology, and even culinary and landscape uses.”— “Taylor’s unorthodox approach has garnered positive comments from casual, weekend hikers as well as those with a professional interest in wildflowers. . . . It has remarkably broad appeal, “Identifying wildflowers is a popular pastime for many gardeners and lovers of wildlife. But many botanical identification books just aren’t user-friendly. Pick up

The Windward Road Adventures of a Naturalist on Remote Caribbean Shores Revised edition Archie Carr Foreword by David Godfrey

Winner of the John Burroughs Medal, American Museum of Natural History “A naturalist with a taste for adventure as a state of mind proves an absorbing storyteller as he wanders the Caribbean coasts.” —Kirkus Reviews “The most compelling account of sea turtle ecology the world has ever seen.”—Research in Review “Writing in the best tradition of the great naturalist explorers.” —Rachel Carson, author of Silent Spring “This is a classic and it remains as fresh and vibrant as ever.” —Marine Turtle Newsletter “Written with verve and drive and clarity and joyousness.” —Chicago Tribune “A delightful and absorbing adventure story, which acquires those characteristics through the author’s love of nature and its creatures, both human and otherwise.”—San Francisco Examiner Originally published in 1956, The Windward Road helped set in motion a movement to protect sea turtles that spread throughout the world and remains strong today. Archie Carr’s unmatched nature writing, accessible to experienced naturalists and laypersons alike, explores some of nature’s darkest mysteries with humor and delight. His entertaining stories of exploring the Caribbean while researching green turtles bring to life his deep passion for the people and biological diversity of the tropics. Archie Carr was professor of zoology at the University of Florida, a research associate of the American Museum of Natural History, and founder of the Caribbean Conservation Corporation.

Fernando Alonso The Father of Cuban Ballet Toba Singer Profile of the 97-year-old ballet master “A greatly informative—and unusually structured—account of one of ballet’s most influential and impressive teachers from the past hundred years. The English-speaking dance world has lost track of him owing to two cold wars—that between the United States and Cuba and that between Alonso and his former wife and inspiration, Alicia. The interviews Singer conducts here unflinchingly take stock of both.”—Mindy Aloff, author of Dance Anecdotes “An illuminating biography of one of the most important pedagogues in twentieth-century ballet. Fernando Alonso not only codified the formidable Cuban ballet technique, but he “One of the most fascinating books I have ever read. Cuba is a mystery to so many of us, and this book gives an insight into the making of a great ballet style and company.

Written records of Alonso’s work are scarce, yet Toba Singer’s quest to spotlight his seminal

role in the development of the modern ballet canon yields key material: pre-blockade tapes from Lincoln Center, Spanish-language sources from the Museum of Dance in Havana, and

Geologic History of Florida Major Events That Formed the Sunshine State Albert C. Hine Geologically speaking, half of Florida is underwater Geologic History of Florida covers the complete geologic history of the Sunshine State—a saga approximately 700 million years long. Albert Hine takes the reader on a journey that begins at the Earth’s South Pole during a time when Florida’s basement rocks were part of a supercontinent and ends with the emergence of south Florida and the Keys. Along the way, we witness those first rocks migrating nearly 8,000 miles to their present position north of the Equator as they participated in the assembly and disassembly of one of Earth’s great supercontinents.

Hine leads readers from the Pangean break-up and the creation of the Gulf of Mexico, the

Michael Francis “As virtually the first scholar to penetrate the history of Florida, Patrick’s works will remain for many years the foundation for all further efforts.” —Florida Historical Quarterly “Undertakes something new in presenting in one volume four hundred years of the history of this state.”—Journal of Negro History “Hard to beat. . . . A lot of history [in] a very tidy and readable package.” —Saturday Review First published in 1945, this concise history of Florida commemorated the state’s centennial anniversary and was the very first book issued by what was then called the University of Florida Press. Reissued numerous times, its status as a seminal text in our state’s history has never been questioned. Even today, copies are difficult to find. As part of the state-wide celebration of the five hundredth anniversary of the discovery of “La Florida,” we are pleased to reissue this facsimile edition of one of the most cherished books ever published by the University Press of Florida. In this highly readable account, Rembert Patrick, the first of many giants among Florida historians, summarizes Florida’s history under the flags of Spain, France, Great Britain, the Confederacy, and the United States. Distilling five centuries of history, Patrick chronicles Florida’s evolving identity: from discovery and settlement to its role under the changing fortunes of European powers, from establishment as a territory to an antebellum state, from the Civil War and Reconstruction to an urban, post-World War II economic juggernaut. Rembert W. Patrick (1909–1967) was professor of history at the University of Florida and a prolific contributor to southern historiography. The Florida Historical Society has recognized his distinguished career by naming an annual award in his honor. History April A Florida Quincentennial Book 160 pp. | 6 x 9 | Illus.

With a new foreword by Rosalyn Howard “A powerful and stirring story.” —San Antonio Express-News “This fascinating story chronicles the lives of fugitive slaves who aligned themselves with Seminole Indians in Florida beginning in the early 1800s, fought with them in the Second Seminole War, and were removed, along with them to Indian Territory, where they struggled to remain free. To prevent reenslavement, their remarkable leader, John Horse, led much of the group to Mexico. . . . Recommended.”—Library Journal “Many returned to Texas in the 1870s, where the men scouted for the US Army and earned four Medals of Honor in action against the Kiowa, Comanche, Kickapoo, and Apache. . . . Recommended for all readership levels.”—Choice “Porter spoke directly with Chief Horse’s descendants and with older black Seminoles who either knew him or had heard firsthand stories about him. . . . A gripping account of a people’s struggle both for identity and freedom.”—Naples Daily News “This book’s sweep is broad, its story is provocative, and the human saga it evokes is compelling.”—Tampa Tribune “An epic tale of desperate, unwitting fugitives who would—without exaggeration—defeat armed forces both white and Indian, make possible settlement of the West, earn the country’s highest military honors, and have nothing to show for it.”—Miami Herald Kenneth W. Porter, former professor of history at the University of Oregon, began researching Black Seminole history in the 1930s. When he died in 1981, he was still editing the 700 pages of his life’s work.

To Render Invisible Jim Crow and Public Life in New South Jacksonville Robert Cassanello “Covering a compelling local history, deeply imbricated with state and national events, To Render Invisible brings together dramatic stories of continuity and change, of gender and race, and of respectability and resistance in a brisk narrative lucidly informed by social theory.”—David Roediger, author of The Wages of Whiteness “Well written, clearly and logically organized, and built upon a foundation of deep research in primary sources, including newspapers, Freemen’s bureau records, official documents, and personal papers.” —Louis Kyriakoudes, author of The Social Origins of the Urban South What defines a city’s public space? Who designates such areas, who determines their uses, and who gets to use them? Today’s “Occupy” movement has brought widespread attention to these issues, but Robert Cassanello demonstrates that such questions have been part of urban life for more than a century. Rough-and-tumble nineteenth-century Jacksonville serves as a springboard to his exploration of social transformation in Florida and the South. When free black men in the city first began to vote, conservative lawmakers pushed them from public spaces in order to make blacks voiceless—invisible—in the public square and thus making the public sphere a white domain. The response was a black counterpublic that at times flourished clandestinely and at other times challenged racism in the public sphere. Fortified by the theories of Henri Lefebvre, David Harvey, and Jürgen Habermas, this is the first book to focus on the tumultuous emergence of the African American working class in Jacksonville between Reconstruction and the 1920s. Cassanello brings to light many of the reasons Jacksonville, like Birmingham, Alabama, and other cities throughout the South, continues to struggle with its contentious racial past. Robert Cassanello is assistant professor of history at the University of Central Florida. He is coeditor of Florida’s Working-Class Past: Current Perspectives on Labor, Race, and Gender from Spanish Florida to the New Immigration.

The Maroons of Prospect Bluff and Their Quest for Freedom in the Atlantic World Nathaniel Millett “A lively story that not only details the fort’s rise and fall but also carefully fits its fate into the larger picture of Anglo-American imperial rivalry and the meaning of freedom in an age of revolution.”—Robert Paquette, coauthor of The Oxford Handbook of Slavery in the Americas “Millett reveals how anti-slavery radicalism threatened to rewrite the history of race in the Early Republic.”—Andrew K. Frank, author of Creeks and Southerners: Biculturalism on the Early American Frontier This is the story of the so-called “Negro Fort,” the largest maroon community ever to emerge in North America. During the War of 1812, Edward Nicolls of the Royal Marines erected a fort at Prospect Bluff in the Florida panhandle, arming ex-slaves, Red Sticks, and Seminoles to fight alongside the British. Fervently opposed to slavery, Nicolls galvanized these allies with his radical anti-slavery ideology and the promise of freedom, asserting their rights and privileges as equal to those of any British subject. At war’s end, Nicolls remained at Prospect Bluff, petitioning American officials to respect the territorial sovereignty of his Indian allies. When diplomacy failed, Nicolls left the fort to his black army of radicalized British subjects and encouraged them to defend the enclave against all threats. What developed was a well-organized community that regarded itself as an independent British polity. Nathaniel Millett examines how the Prospect Bluff maroons constructed their freedom, shedding light on the extent to which they could fight physically and intellectually to claim their rights. Millett considers the legacy of the Haitian Revolution, the growing influence of abolitionism, and the period’s changing interpretations of race, freedom, and citizenship among whites, blacks, and Native Americans.

The American South and the Atlantic World

Creating Citizenship in the Nineteenth-Century South

Edited by Brian Ward, Martyn Bone, and William A. Link

Edited by William A. Link, David Brown, Brian Ward, and Martyn Bone

“A refreshing and intriguing interdisciplinary examination of the ways in which the history and cultures of the American South have been largely shaped by forces beyond the geographical boundaries of the United States.”—Allison Graham, coeditor of volume 18 of The New Encyclopedia of Southern Culture “This is an impressive collection of essays, reflective of the latest theoretical interpretations that illuminate how scholars are looking anew at local stories within a global context.”—Glenn T. Eskew, coeditor of Paternalism in a Southern City Most of the research on the South ties the region to the North, emphasizing racial binaries and outdated geographical boundaries, but The American South and the Atlantic World seeks a larger context. Helping to define “New” Southern Studies, this book—the first of its kind—explores how the cultures, contacts, and economies of the Atlantic World shaped the South. Ranging chronologically from colonial times to the modern era, the essays challenge current narratives about the South through an interdisciplinary spectrum of topics, including migration, religion, slavery, gender, literature, and ethnography. This book features some of the best work available on the topic, designed to explore not just southern themes but the historiographical and methodological issues that are now known as New Southern Studies. Brian Ward, professor of American studies at Northumbria University, is the author of Radio and the Struggle for Civil Rights in the South. Martyn Bone, associate professor of English at the University of Copenhagen, is the author of The Postsouthern Sense of Place in Contemporary Fiction. William A. Link, Richard J. Milbauer Professor of History at the University of Florida, is the author of Links: My Family in American History.

“President Obama’s citizenship continues to be questioned by the ‘birthers,’ the Cherokee Nation has revoked tribal rights from descendants of Cherokee slaves, and Parliament in the United Kingdom is debating ‘citizenship education.’ It is in both this broader context and in the narrower academic one that Creating Citizenship in the Nineteenth-Century South stands as a smart, exciting, and most welcome contribution to southern history and southern studies.”—Michele K. Gillespie, author of Free Labor in an Unfree World “Engages the economic, political, and cultural dynamics of race and belonging from the era of enslavement through emancipation, reconstruction, and the New South.”—Nancy A. Hewitt, author of Southern Discomfort The pioneering essays in this volume are the first to address the evolution and significance of citizenship in the South from the antebellum era, through the Civil War, and into the late nineteenth century. They explore the politics and meanings of citizenry and citizens’ rights in the nineteenth-century American South: from the full citizenship of some white males to the partial citizenship of women with no voting rights, from the precarious position of free blacks and enslaved African American “anti-citizens” to postwar Confederate rebels who were not “loyal citizens” according to the federal government but forcibly asserted their citizenship as white supremacy was restored in the Jim Crow South.

After Slavery Race, Labor, and Citizenship in the Reconstruction South Edited by Bruce E. Baker and Brian Kelly “Is there really anything new to say about Reconstruction? The excellent contributions to this volume make it clear that the answer is a resounding yes. 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 In the popular imagination, freedom for African Americans is often assumed to have been granted and fully realized when Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation or, at the very least, at the conclusion of the Civil War. In reality, the anxiety felt by newly freed slaves and their allies in the wake of the conflict illustrates a more complicated dynamic: the meaning of freedom was vigorously, often lethally, contested in the aftermath of the war. After Slavery moves beyond broad generalizations concerning black life during Reconstruction in order to address the varied experiences of freed slaves across the South. This collection examines urban unrest in New Orleans and Wilmington, North Carolina, loyalty among former slave owners and slaves in Mississippi, armed insurrection along the Georgia coast, racial violence throughout the region, and much more in order to provide a well-rounded portrait of the era. Selected for inclusion as some of the best work created for the After Slavery Project, a transatlantic research collaboration, these essays offer a diversity of viewpoints on the key issues in Reconstruction historiography. Bruce E. Baker, senior lecturer in U.S. history, Royal Holloway, University of London, 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.

The Abolition of Slavery in Ottoman Tunisia Ismael M. Montana “Montana’s book will be crucial to all who wish to understand the decision to ban slavery in Tunisia in 1846. Its broad scope ranges from the machinations of France, Britain, and the Ottomans in North Africa, to the trans-Saharan and Mediterranean trades and the internal struggles over slavery in Tunisia, citing travelers’ accounts, statistics, consular records, Muslim court decisions, and the situations of individual slaves to provide a nuanced account of a key step in the global abolition process.”—George Michael La Rue, Clarion University “A fascinating topic that has the potential for drawing readers interested not only in Tunisia, but in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and international law.”—Allan Christelow, author of Algerians without Borders: The Making of a Global Frontier Society Tunisia is known for being the first Muslim country to abolish slavery during the modern period. Although Ahmed Bey, the country’s ruler in the mid-nineteenth century, was morally opposed to slavery, he did not have the broad support of the citizenry to enact reforms. Even religious leaders were against change, pointing to the Islamic Law precedent for slave ownership. Yet Bey realized that increased European intervention throughout North Africa threatened Tunisian independence and thus embraced abolition as a progressive reform measure to safeguard the country's integrity and sovereignty. In this groundbreaking work, Ismael Montana fully explicates the complexity of Tunisian society and culture and reveals how abolition was able to occur in an environment hostile to such change. He moves beyond typical slave trade studies and departs from the traditional regional paradigms that isolate slavery in North Africa from its global dynamics to examine the transSaharan slave trade in a broader historical context. The result is a study that reveals how European capitalism, political pressure, and evolving social dynamics throughout the western Mediterranean region helped shape this seismic cultural event. Ismael M. Montana, assistant professor of history at Northern Illinois University, is the coeditor of Slavery, Islam and Diaspora.

An Incurable Past

Fertile Bonds

Nasser’s Egypt Then and Now

Bedouin Class, Kinship, and Gender in the Bekaa Valley

Mériam N. Belli

Suzanne E. Joseph “Spanning virtually the entire twentieth century and as timely as the outbreak of the 2011 ‘January Revolution,’ this work has much to say about where Egypt has been, who Egyptians are, and ultimately, where they may take their country.”—Joel Gordon, author of Nasser: Hero of the Arab Nation “Extraordinary…thoughtprovoking, creative, and inspiring. Belli is the first in Middle Eastern studies to examine the cultural history of twentieth-century Egypt through the interactions between education and remembrance.”—Israel Gershoni, Tel Aviv University “An outstanding contribution to our understandings of Egyptian national identity and memory.”—Nancy L. Stockdale, University of North Texas Mid-century Egypt seems to shift its shape in ordinary peoples’ memories. In An Incurable Past, Mériam Belli examines collective memory, oral histories, and everyday communications to reveal not just the history of mid-twentieth-century Egypt but also the ways in which ordinary people experience and remember the past. Using official archives, government publications, press reportage, textbooks, cinema, art, and public rituals, Belli constructs a ground-breaking theoretical framework of “historical utterances” which provokes questions about the relationship between remembrance and reality. Belli argues that such personal testimonies and public representations allow us a deeper understanding of Egypt’s many sociocultural layers in the 1950s and 1960s. She spotlights three topics of vernacular expression in modern Egypt: education, the anti-colonial Limby Festival, and the 1968 apparition of the Virgin Mary at a Coptic Orthodox Church in Cairo. Linked by the mid-century shift from communal life to an industrial and individuated society, these expressions also disclose the contradictory influence of ideologically homogenizing state policies. Examining history not as it was but as it is remembered, this book contextualizes the classist and disappointing post-Nasserist period that has inspired today’s Egyptian revolutionaries.

“Provides rich new ethnographic material on a little-known population, the Bedouin of the Bekaa valley in Lebanon. It positions such marginal populations in the broader theoretical context of modernization and health and demographic transitions.”—Allan G. Hill, Harvard University With an average of over nine children per family, older cohorts of Bedouin in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon have one of the highest fertility rates in the world. Many married couples in this pastoral community are close relatives—a socially advantageous practice that reflects the deep value Bedouins place on kinship. To outsiders, such family norms can seem disturbing, even premodern. They attract assumptions of Arab “backwardness,” poverty, and sexism. Astoundingly, however, Fertile Bonds flips these stereotypes. Anthropological demographer Suzanne Joseph shows that in this particular group, prolific birth rates coincide with moderate death rates and high levels of nutrition. Despite differences in gender, class, and occupation, members of Bekaa Bedouin society rely heavily on kinship ties, sharing, and reciprocity and experience a high degree of social and demographic equality. This story, unfamiliar to many, is one that is fading as traditional nomadic livelihoods give way to encapsulation within the state. With the help of this surprising, nuanced study—one of the first of its kind in the Middle East—knowledge of such marginalized pastoral groups will not vanish with the disappearance of their way of life. Joseph’s book expands our understanding of peoples far removed from consolidated government control and provides a broad analytical lens through which to examine demographic divides across the globe. Suzanne E. Joseph is associate professor of anthropology at Zayed University, Abu Dhabi.

Cusco Urbanism and Archaeology in the Inka World Ian Farrington “An outstanding study of the Incaic Cusco urban system that nicely integrates ethnohistorical and archaeological information using analytical concepts derived from urban planning.” —Jeff Parsons, University of Michigan One person’s lifelong research pursuit is brought to fruition in the first major publication on the planning and archaeology of the Inka capital of Cusco. No other book to date has focused so extensively on the oldest existing city in the Americas, the “navel of the world” according to the Inka Empire, a fascinating and complex urban landscape that grew and evolved over 3,000 years of continuous human habitation. Ian Farrington has spent decades investigating the city and its surroundings, gathering an impressive mass of ethnohistorical and archaeological data. In Cusco, he evaluates his own detailed field observations and measurements. Farrington also unearths and synthesizes much unpublished and ”grey” data, including archaeological reports and personal communications from fifty independent excavations performed over more than a century. Approaching this data with an urban planning methodology highly suited to this particular study, Farrington explores how the building plans of Cusco, the architectural forms employed, and the urban planning techniques impacted the development of various sectors of the ancient city. He also shows how the Inka organized urban space within the contexts of their cultural norms and practices, analyzing major ceremonies and their association with urban architecture. This valuable study conceptualizes urban Cusco as a system that includes the urban core, the heartland, and the imperial provinces from northwest Argentina to southern Colombia. Its unique approach and expansive findings reveal the sophisticated nature of Inka planning. Ian Farrington, senior lecturer in archaeology at the Australian National University in Canberra, is the editor of Prehistoric Intensive Agriculture in the Tropics and coauthor of The Ancient Americas.

Ancient Maya Political Dynamics Antonia E. Foias “An impressive overview of recent scholarship coupled with the results of a long-term research project at the site and region of Motul de San José. It contributes significantly to the anthropological literature on politics and power.”—Daniela Triadan, coeditor of Burned Palaces and Elite Residences of Aguateca “A long overdue and particularly welcome piece of scholarly work. It 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 Politics dominates the public arena and always has, which is one reason it can provide great insight into the lives of ancient people. Because of the richness and complexity of Maya society, archaeologists and anthropologists have spent decades attempting to reconstruct its political systems. In Ancient Maya Political Dynamics, Antonia Foias begins by reexamining recent scholarship, placing it within a larger anthropological framework. By taking a cross-cultural approach and bringing in relevant material from other archaeological areas around the world, she breaks new ground and demonstrates how anthropologists worldwide understand and reconstruct ancient political systems. Foias argues that there is no single Maya political history but multiple histories, no single Maya state but multiple polities that need to be understood at the level of the lived experience of individuals. She 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 coeditor of Motul de San José: Politics, History, and Economy in a Classic Maya Polity.

Paleopathology at the Origins of Agriculture Edited by Mark Nathan Cohen and George J. Armelagos “Makes an important contribution to our understanding of the challenges our ancestors faced during the transition from hunting and gathering to agriculture. . . . A well-organized and highly readable volume that synthesizes an enormous amount of data on what is perhaps the most significant economic transformation in the history of our species.”—American Anthropologist In 1982, the Conference on Paleopathology and Socioeconomic Change at the Origins of Agriculture was held in Plattsburgh, New York, to examine previously untested theories about how the adoption of agriculture had impacted human health. The collection of those conference proceedings transformed into this landmark book that set the standard for how to collect, analyze, and interpret osteological data in the study of health transitions. Using skeletal pathologies, the contributors examine how the transition from foraging to farming affected human health and nutrition. Now back in print and for the first time in paperback, Paleopathology at the Origins of Agriculture is a foundational piece in bioarchaeological literature and a central source of information regarding the impact of early farming on socioeconomic evolution. It remains a highly cited reference for archaeologists and physical anthropologists. Contributors present data from nineteen different regions before, during, and after agricultural transitions, analyzing populations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America while primarily focusing on North America. A wide range of health indicators are discussed, including mortality, episodic stress, physical trauma, degenerative bone conditions, isotopes, and dental pathology. Mark Nathan Cohen is Distinguished Professor of Anthropology at SUNY at Plattsburgh. He was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship on the basis of this book’s impact. George J. Armelagos is Goodrich C.

Bioarchaeology of East Asia Movement, Contact, Health Edited by Kate Pechenkina and Marc Oxenham “A rich, synthetic view of East Asian (pre)history.”—Tiffiny A. Tung, Vanderbilt University “A significant contribution to many central archaeological questions in an area of the world that is often overlooked.”—Sian Halcrow, University of Otago Bioarchaeology of East Asia interprets human skeletal collections from a region where millet, rice, and several other important cereals were cultivated, leading to attendant forms of agricultural development that were accompanied by significant technological innovations. The contributors follow the diffusion of these advanced ideas to other parts of Asia and unravel a maze of population movements. In addition, they explore the biological implications of relatively rare subsistence strategies more or less unique to East Asia: millet agriculture, mobile pastoralism with limited cereal farming, and rice farming combined with reliance on marine resources. Diverse scholarly traditions—from China, Japan, Mongolia, Russia, Australia, and the United States—supply a constructive mix of conceptual frameworks and methodologies. Chineseto-English translations make chapters available that might not otherwise be published outside of China. Ideas stemming from this collection will significantly boost collaborative work among bioarchaeologists and other scientists working in East Asia.

Mission Cemeteries, Mission Peoples

The Archaeology of Citizenship

Historical and Evolutionary Dimensions of Intracemetery Bioarchaeology in Spanish Florida

Stacey Lynn Camp

Christopher M. Stojanowski “Takes you on an amazing trip to different historic Spanish missions in the southeastern United States. These missions are filled with skeletons that are a chorus of Native American voices speaking of church services they attended both in life and in death.”—Keith P. Jacobi, author of Last Rites for the Tipu Maya: Genetic Structuring in a Colonial Cemetery “Mission Cemeteries, Mission Peoples is a must-have for any student or scholar of bioarchaeology. . . . An instant anthropological classic.” —Richard C. Sutter, Purdue University Mission Cemeteries, Mission Peoples offers clear, accessible explanations of complex methods for observing evolutionary effects in populations. Christopher Stojanowski’s intimate knowledge of the historical, archaeological, and skeletal data illuminates the existing narrative of diet, disease, and demography in Spanish Florida and demonstrates how the intracemetery analyses he employs can provide likely explanations for issues where the historical information is either silent or ambiguous. Stojanowski forgoes the traditional broad analysis of Native American populations and instead looks at the physical person who lived in the historic Southeast. What did that person eat? Did he suffer from chronic diseases? With whom did she go to a Spanish church? Where was he buried in death? The answers to these questions allow us to infer much about the lives of mission peoples. Christopher M. Stojanowski is coeditor of Bioarchaeology and Identity in the Americas and author of Bioarchaeology of Ethnogenesis in the Colonial Southeast.

“Elegantly and thoughtfully written and expands the notion of citizenship and its implications for archaeological inquiry to include types of scholarship and topics that are not traditionally considered under such an analytical rubric.”—Jane Eva Baxter, author of The Archaeology of Childhood: Children, Gender, and Material Culture “An engaging book that makes an important contribution to the study of citizenship and its manifestation in the archaeological record. It is a fine and timely example of the way that archaeologists can make the past meaningful in relation to the present.”—Carolyn White, editor of The Materiality of Individuality: Archaeological Studies of Individual Lives While the subject of citizenship has often been examined from a sociological, historical, or legal standpoint, historical archaeologists have yet to fully explore what it means to be an American from a material perspective. The Archaeology of Citizenship aims to fill this gap. Since the founding of the United States, the rights to citizenship have been carefully crafted and policed by the Europeans who settled and formed the country. Immigrants have been either extended or denied citizenship in various legal and cultural ways. Using a late-nineteenth-century California resort as a case study, Stacey Camp discusses how the parameters of citizenship and national belonging have been defined and redefined since Europeans arrived on the continent. In a unique and powerful contribution to the field of historical archaeology, Camp uses the remnants of material culture to reveal how those in power sought to mold the composition of the United States as well as how those on the margins of American society carved out their own definitions of citizenship.

An Introduction to Geoffrey Chaucer Tison Pugh “Impressively interweaving a lifetime of teaching Chaucer with a deep knowledge of his texts, Pugh compresses into one elegantly written, slim handbook the essential Chaucer. A college course in a book! And not a dull moment in it.”—Jane Chance, author of The Literary Subversions of Medieval Women “Focusing on genre theory and contemporary cultural connections, Pugh has produced a fresh and stimulating introduction to Chaucer’s oeuvre.”—Kathleen Forni, author of The Chaucerian Apocrypha “Always engaging and lucid, An Introduction to Geoffrey Chaucer will help even beginners understand and appreciate the poet’s writing.”—David Raybin, coeditor of Chaucer: Contemporary Approaches Geoffrey Chaucer is widely considered the father of English literature. This introduction begins with a review of his life and the cultural milieu of fourteenth-century England and then expands into analyses of such major works as The Parliament of Fowls, Troilus and Criseyde, and, of course, the Canterbury Tales, examining them alongside a selection of lesser-known verses. One of the early hurdles faced by students of Chaucer is achieving ease and fluency with Middle English, but Tison Pugh provides a clear and concise pronunciation guide and a glossary to help novice readers navigate Chaucer’s literature in its original language. Additional critical apparatus, including a survey of the writer’s sources and brief summaries of major plot lines, make An Introduction to Geoffrey Chaucer an indispensable resource for students, teachers, and anyone who has ever wanted to learn more about this crucial figure of English literature. Tison Pugh, professor of English at the University of Central Florida, is the author of several books, including Queering Medieval Genres and Queer Chivalry: Medievalism and the Myth of White Masculinity in Southern Literature.

Ogling Ladies Scopophilia in Medieval German Literature Sandra Lindemann Summers “Successfully applies modern psychoanalytic theory to analysis of medieval texts in a creative way that further enhances our reading of the older literature. A meaningful contribution to the continuing discussion of how modern readers encounter and understand older texts.”—Alexandra Sterling-Hellenbrand, author of Topographies of Gender in Middle High German Arthurian Romance “Summers’s selection of works is logical and effective and offers the reader an opportunity to compare and contrast literary representatives of the phenomenon of scopophilia.”—Ernst Ralf Hintz, author of Learning and Persuasion in the German Middle Ages The love of looking, or scopophilia, is a common motif among female figures in medieval art and literature where it is usually expressed as a motherly or sexually interested gaze—one sanctioned, the other forbidden. Sandra Summers investigates these two major variants of female voyeurism in exemplary didactic and courtly literature by medieval German authors. Setting the motif against the period’s dominant patriarchal ethos and its almost exclusive pattern of male authorship, Summers argues that the maternal gaze was endorsed as a stabilizing influence while the erotic gaze was condemned as a threat to medieval order. Summers brings to her analysis a consideration of several fascinating questions. Did medieval artists and writers invent the idea of “ogling,” or did they record a behavioral practice common at the time? How did the act of ogling alter a female character’s narrative trajectory? How did this effect figure into the regulation and restriction of women during Europe’s Middle Ages? Drawing upon contemporary gender studies, women’s studies, film studies, and psychology, Summers argues that the female gaze ultimately governs social formation. Her provocative, relevant use of modern critical theory helps win new insights for the field of medieval literature. Sandra Lindemann Summers is a lecturer in German at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill.

Samuel Roth, Infamous Modernist Jay A. Gertzman “The first deeply researched and sustained biographical treatment of a man who has become recognized as a significant figure in American publishing, transatlantic modernism, and the development of obscenity law. Gertzman’s wide-ranging knowledge of Roth and the startlingly diverse contexts in which he lived and worked makes this a penetrating and unsurpassed portrait not only of Roth but of the country he inhabited.”—Robert Spoo, coeditor of Ezra and Dorothy Pound: Letters in Captivity, 1945–1946 “Gertzman is to be commended for braiding together so many underappreciated strands of twentieth-century literary, legal, and cultural history.”—Paul K. Saint-Amour, editor of Modernism and Copyright Samuel Roth is known to most literary scholars as a bold literary “pirate” for issuing unauthorized editions of modernist sensations, including Ulysses and Lady Chatterley’s Lover. In the absence of an international copyright agreement and because works deemed obscene could not be copyrighted, what he did was not illegal. But it did violate the protocols of mutual fair dealing between publishers and authors. Those publications provoked an unprecedented international protest of writers, publishers, and intellectuals who eventually vilified Roth on two continents. Roth was a man with an uncanny ability to recognize good contemporary writing and make it accessible to popular audiences. Ultimately, his dedication to the publication of these works broke down many of the censorship laws of the time, though he suffered greatly for his efforts. His story portrays a struggle with literary censorship in the mid-twentieth century while providing insights into how modernism was marketed in America. Jay A. Gertzman, professor emeritus of English at Mansfield University, is the author of three books, including Bookleggers and Smuthounds: The Trade in Erotica, 1920–1940.

Black Art in Brazil Expressions of Identity Kimberly L. Cleveland “Cleveland successfully problematizes the term AfroBrazilian art as a category, challenging many assumptions about black art in Brazil specifically, and in the African Diaspora more broadly.” —Heather Shirey, University of St. Thomas “An insightful and clear discussion of the world of contemporary black art in Brazil. Cleveland’s handling of the ways and means through which these artists deal with artistic production and its intersection with broader sociocultural and racial matters is spot-on. This is an important contribution to Afro-Brazilian studies.”—Anani Dzidzienyo, Brown University For decades, Afro-Brazilian art was primarily associated with religious themes. However, developments in the national discourse on race, ethnicity, and black art in the latter part of the twentieth century have caused a shift away from sacred symbols to art more representative of the complete Afro-Brazilian experience. Kimberly Cleveland highlights the work of five Brazilian artists from all over the country who work in a wide range of media, including photography, sculpture, and installation art. She shows how each conveys “blackness” through his or her unique visual vocabulary and points out the ways this reflects their lived experiences. By examining how these artists explore their African cultural heritage in their work, Cleveland reveals the myriad ways in which they confront social, economic, political, and historical issues related to race in Brazil. Most important, Black Art in Brazil highlights how the identifying markers of black art and culture in Brazil have continued to diversify. Kimberly L. Cleveland is assistant professor of art history at the Welch School of Art and Design at Georgia State University.

African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil Scott Ickes “A sophisticated and thoughtful analysis of mid-twentiethcentury cultural politics, recognizing both the fundamental changes that took place as Afro-Bahian cultural politics became incorporated into representations of Bahia and the limited material gains for Afro-Bahians during this period.”—Hendrik Kraay, editor of Negotiating Identities in Modern Latin America Salvador, the capital of the state of Bahia, is often referred to as “Brazil’s Black Rome” because of its culturally complex, vibrant and historically rich African-descended population, one of the largest in Latin America. Yet even though the state has a majority black population, African-Bahians remain a marginalized racial group within the state as a whole. In African-Brazilian Culture and Regional Identity in Bahia, Brazil, Scott Ickes examines how in the middle of the twentieth century, Bahian elites began to recognize African-Bahian cultural practices as essential components of Bahian regional identity. Previously, public performances of traditionally African-Bahian practices such as capoeira, samba, and Candomblé during carnival and other popular religious festivals had been repressed in favor of more European traditions. The newfound acceptance of these customs by the elite was a democratic move forward, but it came with limitations. The cultural appropriation of these celebrated markers of AfricanBahian identity also perpetuated the political and economic marginalization of the black majority. Nevertheless, Ickes argues that this cultural-political dynamic between African-Bahian cultural practitioners and their dominant class allies helped to create a meaningful framework through which African-Bahian inclusion could be negotiated—a framework that is also important in the larger discussions of race and regional and national identity throughout Brazil.

Cuban Economists on the Cuban Economy Edited by Al Campbell “A unique and indispensable introduction to the economic thinking and analyses of thirteen Cuban economists committed to the successful continuation (albeit with needed modification) of the Cuban project in process since 1959.”—Sinan Koont, author of Sustainable Urban Agriculture in Cuba Most scholarship on the Cuban economy looks at the island nation from the outside in. Cuban Economists on the Cuban Economy is the first collection to bring together some of the island’s leading economists to discuss the good and the bad about their own economy. These thirteen voices—seldom published together in English—offer clear and straightforward analyses of how Cuban society provides for its needs, distributes surplus, and assesses its shortcomings. Focusing on changes in policy during the Special Period, the years following the collapse of the Soviet Union, this volume tracks various shifts, both major and minor, in the island’s planned economy as leaders adapted to changing global relations while developing independent sources of income. These essays offer invaluable and sober assessments of Cuba’s entrance into the international economy through such sectors as tourism, knowledge-based goods and services, and agriculture. Cuban Economists on the Cuban Economy was written, in part, to reveal the rigorous research conducted within the country and to clarify the different factors that Cubans emphasize in examining their place on the world economic stage. It also provides unique insights into the island’s fight against poverty, its aging population, and its trade unions. This book will be an invaluable resource for years to come.

Broadcasting Modernism Edited by Debra Rae Cohen, Michael Coyle, and Jane Lewty “Bring[s] invaluable and long overdue scrutiny to bear on the complex interactions between literature and radio in the early twentieth century.” —English Literature in Transition “Contains a wealth of information about radio technology and the history of broadcasting even for those familiar with recent sound scholarship. . . . Broadcasting Modernism interrogates and explodes the temporal and spatial dimensions of modernism, providing new conceptual frameworks for future scholarship.”—James Joyce Quarterly “The type of collection, provocative and comprehensive, that not only opens up our conception of modernism but does so in such a way as to invite future work. Given how the essays’ diverse subjects and approaches enact a nonreductive portrait of modernism, this anthology promises to be foundational and central to our understanding of how the cacophony of modernity, working across national, cultural, and class borders, was and is impossible to reduce to a singular and monolithic voice.”—Clio Debra Rae Cohen, associate professor of English at the University of South Carolina, is the author of Remapping the Home Front.

Military Struggle and Identity Formation in Latin America Race, Nation, and Community During the Liberal Period

Time and Memory in Indigenous Amazonia Anthropological Perspectives Edited by Carlos Fausto and Michael Heckenberger

Edited by Nicola Foote and René D. Harder Horst “A collection of rare thematic unity, one that puts indigenous and Africandescended people at the center of Latin American history. Foote and Horst refuse to replace heroic war narratives with heroic counter-narratives, however. Instead, they provide something far superior: a regional panorama of challenging interpretive complexity.”—John Charles Chasteen, author of Americanos “A very welcome addition to the historiography, not only because it addresses a subject that has been forgotten for far too long, but because it does so by concentrating on the particularly important question of race and identity. . . . Uncovers the different ways in which the army actually altered the social structure of Latin America.” —Journal of Latin American Studies “Rather than an old ‘drum-and-trumpet’ tradition in military history that emphasizes institutions and politics, this new approach brings the sensibilities of social history to examine warfare from a subaltern perspective. In particular, this volume engages themes of race and ethnicity in both internal and external military conflicts from 1850 to 1950.”—Choice Nicola Foote, associate professor of history at Florida Gulf Coast University, is the editor of The Caribbean History Reader. René D. Harder Horst, professor of history at Appalachian State University, is the author of The Stroessner Regime and Indigenous Resistance in Paraguay.

“Broadens and deepens the anthropological project of understanding histories and historicities in Lowland South America that has emerged as a central theme in recent decades. . . . The outstanding quality and ethnographic richness of the nine case studies included in the volume are a tribute to just how far Amazonian ethnology has come since the 1980s.”—Journal of Anthropological Research “Does more than simply engage ethnography with temporality; it demonstrates that ‘historicity’ and ‘identity’ are mutually constitutive.”—Tipití: Journal of the Society for the Anthropology of Lowland South America “Brings together an international collection of leading Amazonia specialists to rethink some of the most fundamental categories through which anthropologists have traditionally conceptualized history and change. The result is a sophisticated interrogation of the ways we normally think about indigenous Amazonian cultures and a productive challenge to anthropology as a whole.”—Donald Pollock, SUNY Buffalo This collection looks at how native Amazonians experienced forms of cultural memory and at how their narratives of the past helped construct their sense of the present and, inevitably, their own identity.

Violence, Ritual, and the Wari Empire A Social Bioarchaeology of Imperialism in the Ancient Andes

Bioarchaeology of Ethnogenesis in the Colonial Southeast Christopher M. Stojanowski

Tiffiny A. Tung “A ground-breaking study that provides one of the best case studies we have in the bioarchaeology of violence. A mustread for anyone interested in the origin and evolution of aggression and violence in human societies.”—Debra L. Martin, University of Nevada “In this exciting new work, Dr. Tung provides the first comprehensive view of life and the bodies inside ancient Peru’s Wari Empire. Situating the study of archaeological human remains where bioarchaeology and contemporary archaeology intersect, Tung focuses on the lived experience of Wari inhabitants to explore the creation of bioarchaeological narratives, the ways that bodies become material culture, and the influence of imperial control.”—Christina Torres-Rouff, Colorado College The Wari Empire was one of the first civilizations in the New World that expanded dramatically due to economic and military might. This study of human skeletons reveals the biological and social impact of Wari imperialism on communities, particularly in terms of age/sex structure, mortuary treatment, use of violence, and ritual processes associated with power and bodies. Tiffiny A. Tung is associate professor of anthropology at Vanderbilt University.

An Archaeology of Black Markets Local Ceramics and Economies in Eighteenth-Century Jamaica Mark W. Hauser

“Using bioarchaeological data gathered from the remains of Apalachee, Timucua, and Guale individuals from mission cemeteries, the author operationalizes this biosocial approach to ethnogenesis to argue that these groups adapted to colonialism in ways that resulted in a new identity, which he identifies as the Florida Seminole.”—Southwestern Mission Research Center Revista “Examines precontact, early mission, and late precontact indigenous populations from the north Florida–Georgia coast region. . . . Investigates broad patterns of Native American ethnic identity and how they changed over time.”—Journal of Middle Atlantic Archaeology “This artful combination of dental, archaeological, and historical information contributes much to our understanding of the peoples of the early historic Southeast. It will be of special interest to researchers grappling with how best to employ skeletal remains in the study of ethnogenesis.”—George Milner, Pennsylvania State University “Stojanowski’s acute and appropriate attention to the microevolutionary basis of his analyses and results will very much be a must-read for all bioarchaeologists.” —Ann M. Kakaliouras, Whittier College Christopher M. Stojanowski is a bioarchaeologist affiliated with the Center for Bioarchaeological Research at Arizona State University’s School of Human Evolution and Social Change.

“An excellent example of applying petrographic and chemical analysis to coarse earthenwares of the African Diaspora in order to examine the social networks created by enslaved laborers on Jamaica within the larger colonial and capitalist systems. . . .

Hauser is a master in his field, and he writes extremely well. . . . Highly readable, interesting, and important.”—Journal of Caribbean Archaeology “Eloquently weaves together historical, ethnographic, and archaeological evidence to illustrate the complexities of the internal markets, which suggest that the enslaved may have been able to use the social and economic networks they created in order to gain some relief or protection from the power of the colonial regime.”—Winterthur Portfolio Mark W.

The Archaeology of Antislavery Resistance

Who’s Afraid of Bernard Shaw?

Communists and Perverts under the Palms

Terrance M. Weik

Some Personalities in Shaw’s Plays

The Johns Committee in Florida, 1956–1965

“This fascinating study of resistance to African slavery in North America is a very important contribution to the relatively new and growing field of slavery archaeology. . . . [Weik] clearly shows that this antislavery resistance is poorly documented in the records of the dominant society and that the study of the material culture can provide subtle clues to the life and conduct of resisters. . . . Written as narrative, it is very accessible to both the professional and lay reader. It well reflects the beginning of an interesting new direction in archaeological research that is bound to produce dramatic results in years to come.”—American Archaeology “Reviews studies that describe resistance in multidimensional ways, warning readers not to focus on the arguments of resistance to slavery in narrow terms of violence or activism, but to be aware that resistance took many forms and manifestations, depending on the community or the circumstances.”—Choice “Offers a fresh approach to understanding the varied ways in which enslaved people sought freedom.”—Theresa Singleton, Syracuse University Terrance M. Weik is associate professor of anthropology at the University of South Carolina. A volume in the series the American Experience in Archaeological Perspective, edited by Michael S. Nassaney

Stanley Weintraub

Stacy Braukman “What one has come to expect from the dean of Shavian studies: a gem of a work that is meticulously researched, scrupulously sourced, finely crafted, gracefully written, and uncommonly insightful. . . . Of interest and worth to the specialist and novice alike, this fine study could have been written only by someone intimately familiar with Shaw, his corpus, and the age in which he lived.”—Choice “Splendid. This book continually surprises and entertains with its revelations about Shaw’s engagement with an impressive array of historical and contemporary figures, ranging from Jesus to Virginia Woolf. This is a virtuoso performance by a maestro of Shaw studies.” —A. M. Gibbs, author of Bernard Shaw: A Life “Weintraub’s great virtues as a writer are stunning erudition and a consistently high level of readability. Again and again, his scholarship is illuminating.” —Charles A. Carpenter, author of Bernard Shaw as Artist-Fabian Stanley Weintraub, Evan Pugh Professor Emeritus of Arts and Humanities at Pennsylvania State University, is the author of over fifty books, including Private Shaw and Public Shaw, Journey to Heartbreak, and Victoria: An Intimate Biography. A volume in the Florida Bernard Shaw Series, edited by R. F. Dietrich

“Braukman’s research is meticulous, and her ‘page-turner’ narrative offers a window into the past as one contemplates today’s social, cultural, and political hatreds. A must read.”—Choice “In what started as a crackdown on proracial integration factions in Florida’s colleges, gay students and professors quickly became the targets of a years-long hunt to eliminate ‘sexual deviance’ in the state’s public classrooms. . . . Braukman examines the effect the crackdown had on Florida’s universities and the wider civil rights movement for blacks and gays.” — “Provides a valuable genealogy of rightwing, anti-gay, and anti-progressive organizations—how they grew and gave birth to similar organizations.”—Gay and Lesbian Review “What makes Communists and Perverts Under the Palms a penetrating read is not only its chronicling of a microcosm of the fight against civil rights, but its implications for how that fight is still waged by cultural conservatives today. . . . It is one of the best, and the most important, books of the year.”—Lambda Literary Today, the actions of the Johns Committee are easily dismissed as homophobic and bigoted. Stacy Braukman reveals how the creation of the committee was a logical and unsurprising result of historic societal anxieties about race, sexuality, obscenity, and liberalism. Stacy Braukman is an independent scholar and coauthor of Gay and Lesbian Atlanta.

By focusing on a region where these stern, uncompromising Calvinists were at least prominent enough to survive round after round of spiritual controversy, Crowley effectively illuminates the theological schisms that have continuously riven the Baptist faith.”—Southern Historian John G.

Saved and Sanctified

Sons of Ishmael

The Rise of a Storefront Church in Great Migration Philadelphia

Muslims through European Eyes in the Middle Ages

Deidre Helen Crumbley

John V. Tolan

During the early twentieth century, millions of southern blacks moved north to escape the violent racism of the Jim Crow South and to find employment in urban centers. In the midst of this tumultuous demographic transition emerged a new social institution, the storefront sanctified church. Saved and Sanctified focuses on one such Philadelphia church.  Through painstaking historical and ethnographic research, Deidre Helen Crumbley illuminates the crucial role these often controversial churches played in the spiritual life of the African American community during and after the Great Migration. She provides a new perspective on women and their leadership roles, examines the loose or nonexistent relationship these Pentecostal churches have with existing denominations, and dispels common prejudices about those who attend storefront churches. Skillfully interweaving personal vignettes from her own experience as a member, along with life stories of founding members, Crumbley provides new insights into the importance of grassroots religion and community-based houses of worship.

“This collection will be welcomed by anyone working on the interactions of the Muslim and Christian worlds in the Middle Ages—and the more casual reader will be struck by the persistence of stereotypes on both sides of the divide.” —Medium Aevum LXXIX

Deidre Helen Crumbley is an anthropologist and associate professor in the Africana Studies Program at North Carolina State University. A volume in the series the History of African American Religions

“The essays explore what, from the ninth to the fourteenth century, Western Christian clerks and kings, monks and abbots, friars and bishops, and scholars and poets wrote about Muslims and Islam. . . . Tolan’s book is among the best in the field.” —Journal of Religion “Considers such examples as portrayals of Muhammad in 13th-century Spain, Saladin in the medieval European imagination, and Saracen philosophers who secretly deride Islam. . . . Tolan is an engaging writer, accessible to the general as well as the scholarly reader.”—Book News “Tolan has a talent for unraveling often tangled threads and subplots in a complex and intriguing story.”—Religion and the Arts “Tolan has gathered together hard-to-find individual studies, thematically grouped to present a certain counterpoint of themes, actors, and interests that interweave throughout. Every chapter is illuminating. The study is insightful, nuanced, and magnificently lucid.”—Geraldine Heng, University of Texas John V. Tolan is professor of history at the University of Nantes.

The Maghrib in the New Century

Moderate and Radical Islamic Fundamentalism

War and State Building in the Middle East

Identity, Religion, and Politics

The Quest for Modernity, Legitimacy, and the Islamic State

Rolf Schwarz

Edited by Bruce Maddy-Weitzman and Daniel Zisenwine “A most welcome contribution on the state of the Maghrib at the start of the new century. It is the great merit of this volume that all these issues are analyzed in considerable detail, giving both scholars and policymakers the opportunity to be better informed of the challenges emerging from such an important but often underexamined region of the world.”—International Journal of Middle East Studies “A fine collection of original pieces by an international group of authors that fills a hole in current literature. All the other works on the entire Maghrib are out of date because of the current importance of Islamic political movements.”—I. William Zartman, Johns Hopkins University This volume features a topical focus on Islamic movements, an emphasis on the importance of the Berber dimension of contemporary North African society and politics, and the inclusion of a crucial transnational perspective stressing the Maghrib’s ties to Europe. All of this is set against a backdrop of larger questions of history, memory, and national identity at the dawn of a new century. Bruce Maddy-Weitzman is a senior research fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies, Tel Aviv University. Daniel Zisenwine is a research fellow at the Moshe Dayan Center for Middle Eastern and African Studies, Tel Aviv University.

One concludes from it that ‘radicals’ and ‘moderates’ are not clear-cut categories for a classification of Islamic fundamentalists.”—Middle East Studies Association Bulletin “This book is recommended to all those interested in overcoming conventional and simplified views of the political discourse of Islamism.”—Middle East Journal “Highly recommended to academic and public libraries that aim to keep abreast of pressing foreign policy issues involving religion and culture.”—Choice Ahmad S.

“Challenging Charles Tilly’s model of ‘war-makes-state,’ Schwarz…compares the Middle East with the European model of state building and explains the dynamics and consolidation of states in the Arab world through an examination of Iraq, Jordan, and the United Arab Emirates.” —Choice “This comparative volume explores the dramatic pathways of political development undertaken by rentier regimes in the Arab world. Here, waging war proved to weaken rather than strengthen state capacity in pernicious ways—an insight that contrasts sharply with received Western wisdom about war being the crucible of modern state building.”—Sean L. Yom, Temple University “An important contribution to the literature on state building in the Middle East.” —Gawdat Bahgat, author of Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons in the Middle East Rolf Schwarz highlights the perils of funding wars through the sale of natural resources in oil-rich countries, fighting with imported weaponry, and accepting peace settlements negotiated and guaranteed by foreign powers, offering provocative insights into post-conflict peace building, state failure, and the potential for democratic rule.

Atlas of Florida’s Natural Heritage

No Ordinary Days

Biodiversity, Landscapes, Stewardship, and Opportunities

Maggie Taylor

Edited by Gary R. Knight

No Ordinary Days surveys Maggie Taylor’s work from 1998 until 2012. Taylor, trained as a photographer, largely abandoned the camera for another light-sensitive device, the flatbed scanner. She begins her process with a found object—often a nineteenth-century photograph—and using image manipulation software she transforms the original image, layering and manipulating her palette of collected visual information in a meticulous process that pushes the limits of her medium. The result is a surrealistic, often painterly, montage distinguished by vibrant color and a rich symbolism.

“This book will be a valuable tool for us all to make informed decisions about the future of our priceless natural environment.”— Eric J. Barron, president of Florida State University Atlas of Florida’s Natural Heritage provides overviews of the natural communities, plants, and animals that inhabit the state, as well as information on habitat modeling, ecological greenways, protecting natural areas, and land management. This book will be useful not only to scientists and policymakers but also to residents and visitors interested in preserving Florida’s beautiful and complex natural heritage. 161 pp. | 10 x 12 | 663 photos, 256 maps ISBN 978-0-9606708-5-7 | Printed Case $69.99 ISBN 978-0-9606708-6-4 | Paperback $49.99
