    University Press of Florida 2015; US$ 74.95

    Despite the contributions of enslaved African Americans to our country?s economy, culture, and history, records of their existence are all but expunged from plantation sites, which are reluctant to show and interpret the homes and lives of the enslaved.

  • The South and the New Dealby Roger Biles

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 28.00

    When Franklin D. Roosevelt was sworn in as president, the South was unmistakably the most disadvantaged part of the nation.

Moreover, the region was prostrate from the effects of the Great Depression.... more...

    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.

  • Three American Frontiersby Thomas D. Clark; Holman Hamilton

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Exhibiting a clear, straightforward style, his many works are marked by a comprehensiveness and a catholicity of view.

  • From Gentlemen to Townsmenby Charles G. Steffen

    The University Press of Kentucky 2015; US$ 35.00

    Economic and social life in the upper Chesapeake during the colonial period diverged from that in southern Maryland and Tidewater Virginia despite similar economic bases.
