  • Baseball without Bordersby George Gmelch

    University of Nebraska Press 2006; US$ 19.95

    A televised baseball game from Puerto Rico, Japan, or even Cuba might look a lot like the North American game. This book looks at how the game was imported - how it took hold and developed, how it is organized, played, and followed - and what these local and regional trends and features say about the sport's place in particular cultures. more...

  • The 1870 Ghost Danceby Cora Du Bois

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

    The 1870 Ghost Dance was a significant but too often disregarded transformative historical movement with particular impact on the Native peoples of northern California.

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 17.95

    ?I think I get it,? Betty Levitov?s youngest student said, sitting on a porch in Harare, Zimbabwe. ?You?ve had a potentially fatal disease, and faced death, and now you?ll do just about anything.? The student was trying to fathom why a teacher would take thirteen kids from a small midwestern liberal arts college on a three-month trek across Africa. more...

  • Andean Tragedyby William F. Sater

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 60.00

    The year 1879 marked the beginning of one of the longest, bloodiest conflicts of nineteenth-century Latin America. The War of the Pacific pitted Peru and Bolivia against Chile in a struggle initiated over a festering border dispute. The conflict saw Chile?s and Peru?s armored warships vying for control of sea lanes and included one of the first examples... more...

  • Because a Fire Was in My Headby Lynn Stegner

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95

    Kate Riley is not the sort of heroine we meet in most American novels. Self-centered, shape-shifting, driven from one man to another and one city to the next, she is all too real?but not at all the loyal and steady homebody of idealized womanhood. When we first encounter her, Kate (or Katherine, or Kate of the Prairie, or Katrina) is about to undergo... more...

In this book he takes readers to Montana?s prairies and mountains in search of antelope, whitetail deer, moose, and the occasional upland bird as he vividly describes the rituals and camaraderie of hunting culture. more...

  • Bigger than Lifeby Dinah Lenney

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 24.95
