    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.

  • Africa on Six Wheelsby Betty Levitov

    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.?

  • 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...

  • Buffalo Nationby Ken Zontek

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 19.95

    The gruesome story of the devastation of buffalo herds in the late nineteenth century has become uncomfortably familiar.

  • Choctaw Nationby Valerie Lambert

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 45.00

    Choctaw Nation is a story of tribal nation building in the modern era.

  • Ethnicity and Equalityby Azouz Begag

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 14.95

    In the fall of 2005 the streets of France were rocked by civil disturbances on a scale unseen for decades. Only months earlier Azouz Begag, France?s first minister for equal opportunities and first-ever cabinet minister of North African immigrant origin, wrote an essay laying bare the festering social and ethnic injustices that, as can now be seen... more...

  • Extraordinary Anthropologyby Jean-Guy A. Goulet

    University of Nebraska Press 2007; US$ 34.95
