  • Blue Jays 1, Expos 0by David Luchuk

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2007; US$ 29.95

    The 2001-2002 offseason was a tumultuous one for Major League Baseball. The commissioner's move to contract two teams, voted on and approved by league owners in a 28-2 vote, left fans in several cities fearing for the future of their teams. The Montreal Expos, with a recent history of poor play and even poorer attendance, seemed an obvious choice.... more...

  • Baseball in Crisisby Frank P. Jozsa

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2008; US$ 35.00

    Recent polls have placed football ahead of baseball in popularity. Does this reflect football's rise or baseball's decline? Why has the national pastime--a title perhaps becoming inaccurate--fallen behind other major sports? Is the trend reversible? This book identifies the most substantial and persistent issues that have impaired Major League... more...

  • Transylvanian Vampiresby Adriana Groza

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Authentic vampire tales exist in Transylvanian folklore. Yet the Transylvanian vampire is nothing like the bloodthirsty Count of Bram Stoker's imagination or the romantic hero of popular fiction. The Romanian tradition comes from the villages, reflecting the norms of peasant life and wisdom embedded in age-old communities. This book consists of... more...

  • Beyond Sustainabilityby Tim Delaney; Tim Madigan

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    This forward-looking text approaches the study of the environment from two academic disciplines--sociology and philosophy.

  • Americans in Occupied Belgium, 1914-1918by Ed Klekowski; Libby Klekowski

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 45.00

    Belgium in the First World War: the first country invaded, the longest occupied, and the last liberated. In 1914, Belgium was home to a large American colony: people working for U.S. corporations, diplomats with the American Legation and Americans in the arts--Brussels was cheaper than Paris. After the invasion, American journalists, writers and adventurers... more...

  • Exiting Vietnamby Michael A. Eggleston

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Although the Paris Peace Accords ended direct United States military involvement in Vietnam on January 27, 1973, the process of withdrawal lasted over three years. This illuminating volume chronicles this withdrawal, its background, and its impact through a combination of official history and first-person accounts from key players at every level. Brief... more...

  • The Texas Revolution and the U.S.-Mexican Warby Paul Calore

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 39.95

    This narrative history describes the events preceding, and the prosecution of, the Texas Revolution and the U.S.-Mexican War.

  • Women in Game of Thronesby Valerie Estelle Frankel

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Game of Thrones, one of the hottest series on television, leaves hundreds of critics divided on how "feminist" the show really is. Certainly the female characters, strong and weak, embody a spectrum of archetypes--widow queens, warrior women, damsels in distress, career women, priestesses, crones, mothers and maidens. However, the problematic... more...
