    In June 1876 the 7th U.S. Cavalry was savagely defeated at the Little Bighorn in the Montana wilderness during an attempt to seize Sioux and Cheyenne hunting grounds.

  • Bones on the Groundby Elizabeth O'Maley

    Indiana Historical Society Press 2015; US$ 9.95

    What happened to the Indians of the Old Northwest Territory?

  • Re-Collecting Black Hawkby Nicholas A. Brown; Sarah E. Kanouse

    University of Pittsburgh Press 2015; US$ 39.95

  • Mochi's Warby Chris Enss; Howard Kazanjian

    TwoDot 2015; US$ 15.99

    As with many incidents in American history, the victors wrote the first version of history--turning the tragedy of the Sand Creek Massacre into a heroic feat by the Colorado militia tasked with moving the Cheyenne onto reservations. The truth of those events has made Colonel John Chivington's name infamous in Colorado and American history, and this... more...

  • Red Cloud?s Warby Paul Goble; Robert Lewis

    World Wisdom 2015; US$ 9.99

    With just 80 soldiers, Captain Fetterman boasted that he could defeat the entire Lakota nation. In 1866, after the Civil War, he would get his chance against Lakota chief Red Cloud.

  • Suburban Warriors: The Origins of the New American Rightby Lisa McGirr; Lisa McGirr

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 27.95

    In the early 1960s, American conservatives seemed to have fallen on hard times. McCarthyism was on the run, and movements on the political left were grabbing headlines. The media lampooned John Birchers's accusations that Dwight Eisenhower was a communist puppet. Mainstream America snickered at warnings by California Congressman James B. Utt that... more...

  • The President, the State and the Cold Warby James Bilsland

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 54.95

    US foreign policy during the Cold War has been analysed from a number of perspectives, generating large bodies of literature attempting to explain its origins, its development and its conclusion. However, there are still many questions left only partially explained. In large part this is because these accounts restrict themselves to a single level... more...

  • Truman and the Democratic Partyby Sean J. Savage

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    What best defines a Democrat in the American political arena -- idealistic reformer or pragmatic politician? Harry Truman adopted both roles and in so doing defined the nature of his presidency. Truman and the Democratic Party is the first book to deal exclusively with the president's relationship with the Democratic party and his status as party... more...

  • Truman Defeats Deweyby Gary A. Donaldson

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 30.00

    Fifty years ago Harry S. Truman pulled off the greatest upset in U.S. political history. With his party split on both the left and the right, and facing a formidable Republican opponent in New York governor Thomas E. Dewey, the Missourian was thought to have little chance of remaining in the White House. But politics in the postwar years were changing... more...

  • Eisenhowerby Pam Parry; Mary Jean Eisenhower

    Lexington Books 2014; US$ 79.99

    Dwight D. Eisenhower is this nation?s most transformative public relations president, not because he was the best practitioner to occupy the Oval Office but because he embraced public relations as vital to American democracy. Understanding his belief in public relations is crucial to further understanding the man, the general, and the president.... more...
