  • Our Appalachiaby Laurel Shackelford; Bill Weinberg

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Many books have been written about Appalachia, but few have voiced its concerns with the warmth and directness of this one. From hundreds of interviews gathered by the Appalachian Oral History Project, editors Laurel Shackelford and Bill Weinberg have woven a rich verbal tapestry that portrays the people and the region in all their variety. The words... more...

  • The Negro in the French West Indiesby Shelby T. McCloy

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In the research for his book on the opportunities of the black population in Metropolitan France, Shelby T. McCloy found the treatment accorded to people of color in the French colonies so significantly different as to warrant a separate book. This historical study examines the black experience in the French West Indies -- the islands of Martinique,... more...

  • The Self-Inflicted Woundby Robert F. Durden

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The essentially tragic political fate of the American South in the nineteenth century resulted from what Robert F. Durden calls a "self-inflicted wound" -- the gradual surrender of the white majority to the pride, fears, and hates of racism. In this gracefully written and closely reasoned study, Durden traces the course of southern political life... more...

  • The Old Dominion and the New Nationby Richard R. Beeman

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    This comprehensive study -- an honorable mention in the 1971 Frederick Jackson Turner Award competition -- traces the emergence and development of the Republican and Federalist party organizations in Virginia and shows how the old oligarchic system based on wealth, influence, and social prestige remained strong in that state after the formation of... more...

  • Revolution and Ideologyby John A. Britton

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Mexico and the United States share a border of more than 2,000 miles, and their histories and interests have often intertwined. The Mexican Revolution, which began in 1910 and continued in one form or another for the next thirty years, was keenly observed by U.S. citizens, especially those directly involved in Mexico through property ownership, investment,... more...

  • Occupied Cityby Gerald M. Capers

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    New Orleans is the largest American city ever occupied by enemy forces for an extended period of time. Falling to an amphibious Federal force in the spring of 1862, the city was threatened with the possibility of Confederate recapture even as late as 1864. How this tension affected the lives of both civilians and soldiers during the occupation is... more...

  • Three American Frontiersby Thomas D. Clark; Holman Hamilton

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The casual and the serious of American history -- fiddlers, yarn spinners, and riverboat gamblers, politicians, educators, and social reformers -- have all concerned Thomas D. Clark, celebrated historian of the Western frontier and the changing South. Three American Frontiers , a volume of his selected writings, draws from works produced throughout... more...

  • Martín Lópezby C. Harvey Gardiner

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    In this study of the life of a Spaniard who came to Mexico as a conquistador and remained as a civilian citizen of New Spain, C. Harvey Gardiner gives his readers a fresh view of the warfare between Spaniard and Indian and of the less dramatic processes of colonization which established European culture in America. Conquest and colonization, usually... more...

  • Sayings of the Ancestorsby John Holmes McDowell

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    The Sibundoy valley of southwestern Colombia is the home of a unique Indian culture -- one that blends Incan elements with those of the aboriginal natives. Moreover, Sibundoy bridges two domains, the Andean highlands and the Amazonian basin, and inter-mixed with all of these elements are European influences, particularly folk and orthodox Catholicism.... more...

  • The Clays of Alabamaby Ruth Ketring Nuermberger

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Of unique interest to the student of nineteenth century America is this account of the Alabama Clays, who in their private life were typical of the slaveholding aristocracy of the old South, but as lawyer-politicians played significant roles in state and national politics, in the development of the Democratic party, and in the affairs of the Confederacy.... more...
