    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2013; US$ 45.00

    From German idealism onward, Western thinkers have sought to revalue tragedy, invariably converging at one cardinal point: tragic art risks aestheticizing real violence.

    Coastal Encounters opens a window onto the fascinating world of the eighteenth-century Gulf South.

  • California Women and Politicsby Robert W. Cherny; Mary Ann Irwin; Ann Marie Wilson

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2011; US$ 40.00

    In 1911 as progressivism moved toward its zenith, the state of California granted women the right to vote.

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2010; US$ 60.00

    Rev. John Dunbar and Samuel Allis set out in 1834 to establish a mission to Indians beyond the Rocky Mountains.

  • Such a Lifeby Lee Martin

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 16.95

    Lee Martin tells us in his memoir, “I was never meant to come along. My parents married late. My father was thirty-eight, my mother forty-one. When he found out she was pregnant, he asked the doctor, ‘Can you get rid of it?’” From such an inauspicious beginning, Martin began collecting impressions that, through the tincture of time and the magic... more...

    Ellen Cassedy’s longing to recover the Yiddish she’d lost with her mother’s death eventually led her to Lithuania, once the “Jerusalem of the North.” As she prepared for her journey, her uncle, sixty years after he’d left Lithuania in a boxcar, made a shocking disclosure about his wartime experience, and an elderly man from her ancestral town made... more...

    After eight months in his childhood home helping his mother through her bout with cancer, Matthew Frank and his wife were themselves desperate for comfort.

  • Green Illusionsby Ozzie Zehner

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 29.95

    We don’t have an energy crisis. We have a consumption crisis. And this book, which takes aim at cherished assumptions regarding energy, offers refreshingly straight talk about what’s wrong with the way we think and talk about the problem. Though we generally believe we can solve environmental problems with more energy—more solar cells, wind turbines,... more...

  • Pitching, Defense, and Three-Run Homersby Mark L. Armour; Malcolm Allen; Society for American Baseball Research (SABR)

    UNP - Nebraska Paperback 2012; US$ 24.95

    For the Baltimore Orioles, the glory days stretched to decades. Through the 1960s and 1970s, the team arguably had the best players, the best manager, the best Minor League teams, the best scouts and front office—and, unarguably, the best record in the American League. But the best of all, and one of baseball’s greatest teams ever, was the Orioles... more...
