The Battle of Churubusco : American rebels in the Mexican-American War
Ferraris, Andrea, 1966- author,
Seattle, WA : Fantagraphics, [2017]
"A soldier under fire faces a crisis of conscience in this remarkable work of historical graphic fiction. In 1847, Mexican suburb Churubusco was the stronghold of the San Patricios, a motley battalion of soldiers--even some runaway American slaves--who deserted the United States army for a just, if suicidal, cause. In this graphic novel, Ferraris tells their story through the eyes of Gaetano Rizzo (based on a real soldier). A twenty-two-year-old Sicilian immigrant, he is promised citizenship and a parcel of land if he will fight to take California away from Mexico. Soon, he sees the cruelty he is being ordered to inflict is no different from what he had escaped from"--Back cover.

The creator's game : lacrosse, identity, and Indigenous nationhood
Downey, Allan, author
Vancouver : University of British Columbia Press, [2018]
Lacrosse has been a central element of Indigenous cultures for centuries, but once non-Indigenous players entered the sport, it became a site of appropriation--then reclamation--of Indigenous identity. The Creator's Game focuses on the history of lacrosse in Indigenous communities from the 1860s to the 1990s, exploring Indigenous-non-Indigenous relations and Indigenous identity formation. While the game was being appropriated in the process of constructing a new identity for the nation-state of Canada, it was also being used by Indigenous peoples to resist residential school experiences, initiate pan-Indigenous political mobilization, and articulate Indigenous sovereignty. This engaging and innovative book provides a unique view of Indigenous self-determination and nationhood in the face of settler-colonialism--back cover.

Rhetoric, religion and the civil rights movement, 1954-1965
Davis W. Houck, David E. Dixon, editors
Waco, Tex. : Baylor University Press, ©2006-©2014
The Civil Rights Movement succeeded in large measure because of rhetorical appeals grounded in the Judeo-Christian religion. While movement leaders often used America's founding documents and ideals to depict Jim Crow's contradictory ways, the language and lessons of both the Old and New Testaments were often brought to bear on many civil rights events and issues--from local desegregation to national policy matters. The first volume chronicles how national movement leaders and local activists moved a nation to live up to the biblical ideals it often professed but infrequently practiced. The second volume builds on the first and is a recovery project of enormous proportions. Houck and Dixon have again combed church archives, government documents, university libraries, and private collections in pursuit of the civil rights movement's long-buried eloquence. Their new work presents fifty new speeches and sermons delivered by both famed leaders and little-known civil rights activists on national stages and in quiet shacks. The speeches carry novel insights into the ways in which individuals and communities utilized religious rhetoric to upset the racial status quo in divided America during the civil rights era. Houck and Dixon's work illustrates again how a movement so prominent in historical scholarship still has much to teach us. (Publisher).

The burning house : Jim Crow and the making of modern America
Walker, Anders, author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
"In this dramatic reexamination of the Jim Crow South, Anders Walker demonstrates that racial segregation fostered not simply terror and violence, but also diversity, one of our most celebrated ideals. He investigates how prominent intellectuals like Robert Penn Warren, James Baldwin, Eudora Welty, Ralph Ellison, Flannery O'Connor, and Zora Neale Hurston found pluralism in Jim Crow, a legal system that created two worlds, each with its own institutions, traditions, even cultures. The intellectuals discussed in this book all agreed that black culture was resilient, creative, and profound, brutally honest in its assessment of American history. By contrast, James Baldwin likened white culture to a "burning house," a frightening place that endorsed racism and violence to maintain dominance. Why should black Americans exchange their experience for that? Southern whites, meanwhile, saw themselves preserving a rich cultural landscape against the onslaught of mass culture and federal power, a project carried to the highest levels of American law by Supreme Court justice and Virginia native Lewis F. Powell, Jr. Anders Walker shows how a generation of scholars and judges has misinterpreted Powell's definition of diversity in the landmark case Regents v. Bakke, forgetting its Southern origins and weakening it in the process. By resituating the decision in the context of Southern intellectual history, Walker places diversity on a new footing, independent of affirmative action but also free from the constraints currently placed on it by the Supreme Court. With great clarity and insight, he offers a new lens through which to understand the history of civil rights in the United States." -- Publisher's description

Civil war and agrarian unrest : the Confederate South and southern Italy
Dal Lago, Enrico, 1966- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Machine generated contents note: Introduction: civil war, nation-building, and agrarian unrest in the Confederate South and Southern Italy: a comparative perspective; Part I. Inner Civil Wars and National Crises, 1860-1863: 1. Preemptive counterrevolutions: the rebellions of the elites; 2. The difficult birth of two nations; 3. Inner civil wars in East Tennessee and Northern Terra di Lavoro I, 1860-1861; 4. Inner civil wars in East Tennessee and Northern Terra di Lavoro II, 1861-1863; Part II. Civil Wars and Social Revolutions, 1862-1865: 5. Revolutions: the revolts of the lower strata; 6. Civil wars and agrarian questions; 7. Social revolutions in the lower Mississippi Valley and upper Basilicata I, 1862-1863; 8. Social revolutions in the lower Mississippi Valley and upper Basilicata II, 1863-1865.

"Between 1861 and 1865, both the Confederate South and Southern Italy underwent dramatic processes of nation-building, with the creation of the Confederate States of America and the Kingdom of Italy, in the midst of civil wars. This is the first book that compares these parallel developments by focusing on the Unionist and pro-Bourbon political forces that opposed the two new nations in inner civil conflicts. Overlapping these conflicts were the social revolutions triggered by the rebellions of American slaves and Southern Italian peasants against the slaveholding and landowning elites. Utilizing a comparative perspective, Enrico Dal Lago sheds light on the reasons why these combined factors of internal opposition proved fatal for the Confederacy in the American Civil War, while the Italian Kingdom survived its own civil war. At the heart of this comparison is a desire to understand how and why nineteenth-century nations rose and either endured or disappeared"--

Modernity and its other : the encounter with North American Indians in the eighteenth century
Sayre, Robert, 1943- author
Lincoln : University of Nebraska Press, [2017]
Crèvecoeur: British America before and during the Revolutionary Upheaval -- Philip Freneau: After the Revolution -- Moreau de Saint-Méry: Fin de Siècle -- The Zero Degree of the Other: Indian Violence and "Adventure" with Indians -- Accounts of Travel in New France: Lahontan and Charlevoix -- Anglo-American Travelers: John Lawson and Jonathan Carver -- Travels of William Bartram, Quaker Botanist -- Fur Traders: Alexander Mackenzie and Jean-Baptiste Trudeau -- Epilogue: Into the Nineteenth Century- George Catlin.

"In Modernity and Its Other Robert Woods Sayre examines eighteenth-century North America through discussion of texts drawn from the period. He focuses on this unique historical moment when early capitalist civilization (modernity) in colonial societies, especially the British, interacted closely with Indigenous communities (the "Other") before the balance of power shifted definitively toward the colonizers. Sayre considers a variety of French perspectives as a counterpoint to the Anglo-American lens, including J. Hector St. John de Crevecoeur and Philip Freneau, as well as both Anglo-American and French or French Canadian travelers in "Indian territory," including William Bartram, Jonathan Carver, John Lawson, Alexander Mackenzie, Baron de Lahontan, Pierre Charlevoix and Jean-Baptiste Trudeau. Modernity and Its Other is an important addition to any North American historian's bookshelf, for it brings together the social history of the European colonies and the ethnohistory of the American Indian peoples who interacted with the colonizers."--

Kwädąy Dän Ts'ìnchį : teachings from Long Ago Person Found
edited by Richard J. Hebda, Sheila Greer and Alexander P. Mackie
Victoria [B.C.] : Royal BC Museum : c2017
"On a late summer day, many years ago, a young man set out on voyage through the mountains. He never reached his destination. When his remains were discovered by three BC hunters, perhaps three hundred years after he left the northern coast and vanished into a storm, his name had faded from even the long memory of the coastal people. They decided to call him Kwädąy Dän Ts'ìnchį--the Long Ago Person Found. The discovery of the Kwädąy Dän Ts'ìnchį man raised many questions. Where had he come from? Where was he going, and for what purpose? What did his world look like? But his remains, preserved in glacial ice for centuries, offered answers, too--as did the traditional knowledge and experience of the Indigenous peoples in whose territories he lived and died. In this comprehensive and collaborative account, scientific analysis and cultural knowledge interweave to describe a life that ended almost precisely as Europeans began to arrive in the northwest. What emerges is not only a portrait of an individual and his world, but also a model for how diverse ways of knowing, in both scholarly and oral traditions, can complement each other to provide a new understanding of our complex histories."--

Free the beaches : the story of Ned Coll and the battle for America's most exclusive shoreline
Kahrl, Andrew W., 1978- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
"The story of our separate and unequal America in the making, and one man's fight against it--During the long, hot summers of the late 1960s and 1970s, one man began a campaign to open some of America's most exclusive beaches to minorities and the urban poor. That man was anti-poverty activist and one-time presidential candidate Ned Coll of Connecticut, a state that permitted public access to a mere seven miles of its 253-mile shoreline. Nearly all of the state's coast was held privately, for the most part by white, wealthy residents. This book is the first to tell the story of the controversial protester who gathered a band of determined African American mothers and children and challenged the racist, exclusionary tactics of homeowners in a state synonymous with liberalism. Coll's legacy of remarkable successes--and failures--illuminates how our nation's fragile coasts have not only become more exclusive in subsequent decades but also have suffered greater environmental destruction and erosion as a result of that private ownership." -- Publisher's website.

Jefferson's daughters : three sisters, white and black, in a young America
Kerrison, Catherine, 1953- author
New York : Ballantine Books, [2018]
"Thomas Jefferson had three daughters: Martha and Maria by his wife, Martha Wayles Jefferson, and Harriet by his slave Sally Hemings. In Jefferson's Daughters, Catherine Kerrison, a scholar of early American and women's history, recounts the remarkable journey of these three women--and how their struggle to define themselves reflects both the possibilities and the limitations that resulted from the American Revolution. Although the three women shared a father, the similarities end there. Martha and Maria received a fine convent school education while they lived with their father during his diplomatic posting in Paris--a hothouse of intellectual ferment whose celebrated salonnières are vividly brought to life in Kerrison's narrative. Once they returned home, however, the sisters found their options limited by the laws and customs of early America. Harriet Hemings followed a different path. She escaped slavery--apparently with the assistance of Jefferson himself. Leaving Monticello behind, she boarded a coach and set off for a decidedly uncertain future. For this groundbreaking triple biography, Kerrison has uncovered never-before-published documents written by the Jefferson sisters when they were in their teens, as well as letters written by members of the Jefferson and Hemings families. She has interviewed Hemings family descendants (and, with their cooperation, initiated DNA testing) and searched for descendants of Harriet Hemings. The eventful lives of Thomas Jefferson's daughters provide a unique vantage point from which to examine the complicated patrimony of the American Revolution itself. The richly interwoven story of these three strong women and their fight to shape their own destinies sheds new light on the ongoing movement toward human rights in America--and on the personal and political legacy of one of our most controversial Founding Fathers."--Publisher's description.

Trumpocracy : the corruption of the American republic
Frum, David, 1960- author
New York, NY : Harper, an imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers, [2018]
Pre-existing conditions -- Enablers -- Appeasers -- Plunder -- Betrayals -- Enemies of the people -- Rigged system -- America alone -- Autoimmune disorder -- Resentments -- Believers -- Hope.

"From Russia to South Africa, from Turkey to the Philippines, from Venezuela to Hungary, authoritarian leaders have smashed restraints on their power. The freedom of the media and the judiciary have eroded. The right to vote remains, but the right to have one's vote counted honestly does not. Until the US presidential election of 2016, the global decline of democracy seemed a concern for other peoples in other lands. That complacent optimism has been upended by the political rise of Donald Trump. The crisis is upon Americans, here and now. Quietly, steadily, Trump and his administration are damaging the tenets and accepted practices of American democracy, perhaps irrevocably. As he and his family enrich themselves, the presidency itself falls into the hands of the generals and financiers who surround him. David Frum has been collecting the lies, obfuscations, and flagrant disregard for the traditional limits placed on the office of the presidency. During his own tenure in the White House as speechwriter for George W. Bush, Frum witnessed the ways the presidency is limited not by law but by tradition, propriety, and public outcry, all now weakened. Whether the Trump presidency lasts two, four, or seven more years, he has changed the nature of the office for the worse, and will likely remain so for decades. In this powerful and eye-opening book, Frum makes clear that the hard work of recovery starts at home. Trumpocracy outlines how Trump could push America toward illiberalism, what the consequences could be for our nation and the world, and what we can do to prevent it"--

A pictographic history of the Oglala Sioux
Bad Heart Bull, Amos, 1869-1913, author,
Lincoln : University of Nebraska Press, [2017]
Publisher's preface to the 50th anniversary edition -- A short history of Amos Bad Heart Bull and Helen Blish / Emily Levine -- Significance of the ledger drawings / Candace Greene -- List of color plates -- List of illustrations -- Publisher's preface -- Introduction / Mari Sandoz -- Dedication -- Foreword / Helen H. Blish -- The artist and his work -- Dakota histories and historical art -- The Bad Heart Bull manuscript as history -- Bad Heart Bull as an artist -- Dakotan art and thought -- Introduction to the drawings -- The drawings -- Bibliography -- Appendix: Descriptive listing of the drawings -- A note on the editing -- The artist and the author -- Note on images -- Index.

"Originally published in 1967, this remarkable pictographic history consists of more than four hundred drawings and script notations by Amos Bad Heart Bull, an Oglala Lakota man from the Pine Ridge Reservation, made between 1890 and the time of his death in 1913. The text, resulting from nearly a decade of research by Helen H. Blish and originally presented as a three-volume report to the Carnegie Institution, provides ethnological and historical background and interpretation of the content. This 50th anniversary edition provides a fresh perspective on Bad Heart Bull's drawings through digital scans of the original photographic plates created when Blish was doing her research. Lost for nearly half a century--and unavailable when the 1967 edition was being assembled--the recently discovered plates are now housed at the Smithsonian's National Anthropological Archives. Readers of the volume will encounter new introductions by Emily Levine and Candace S. Greene, crisp images and notations, and additional material that previously appeared only in a limited number of copies of the original edition." -- Publisher's website.

The sit-ins : protest and legal change in the civil rights era
Schmidt, Christopher W., 1974- author
Chicago : The University of Chicago Press, 2018
Introduction -- The students -- The lawyers -- The sympathizers -- The opponents -- The justices -- The lawmakers -- Conclusion.

"The Sit-Ins tells the story of the student lunch counter protests and the national debate they sparked over the meaning of the constitutional right of all Americans to equal protection of the law. Christopher W. Schmidt describes how behind the now-iconic scenes of African American college students sitting in quiet defiance at "whites only" lunch counters lies a series of underappreciated legal dilemmas--about the meaning of the Constitution, the capacity of legal institutions to remedy different forms of injustice, and the relationship between legal reform and social change. The students' actions initiated a national conversation over whether the Constitution's equal protection clause extended to the activities of private businesses that served the general public. The courts, the traditional focal point for accounts of constitutional disputes, played an important but ultimately secondary role in this story. The great victory of the sit-in movement came not in the Supreme Court, but in Congress, with the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, landmark legislation that recognized the right African American students had claimed for themselves four years earlier. The Sit-Ins invites a broader understanding of how Americans contest and construct the meaning of their Constitution."--Publisher's website.

Empire in retreat : the past, present, and future of the United States
Bulmer-Thomas, V., author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2018]
A sweeping history of the United States through the lens of empire-and an incisive look forward as the nation retreats from the global stage A respected authority on international relations and foreign policy, Victor Bulmer-Thomas offers a grand survey of the United States as an empire. From its territorial expansion after independence, through hegemonic rule following World War II, to the nation's current imperial retreat, the United States has had an uneasy relationship with the idea of itself as an empire. In this book Bulmer-Thomas offers three definitions of empire-territorial, informal, and institutional-that help to explain the nation's past and forecast a future in which the United States will cease to play an imperial role. Arguing that the move toward diminished geopolitical dominance reflects the aspirations of most U.S. citizens, he asserts that imperial retreat does not necessarily mean national decline and may ultimately strengthen the nation-state. At this pivotal juncture in American history, Bulmer-Thomas's uniquely global perspective will be widely read and discussed across a range of fields.

My conversations with Canadians
Maracle, Lee, author
Toronto : BookThug, 2017
"'My Conversations With Canadians' is the book that "Canada 150" needs. On her first book tour at the age of 26, Lee Maracle was asked a question from the audience, one she couldn't possibly answer at that moment. But she has been thinking about it ever since. As time has passed, she has been asked countless similar questions, all of them too big to answer, but not too large to contemplate. These questions, which touch upon subjects such as citizenship, segregation, labour, law, predjudice and reconcilliation (to name a few), are the heart of 'My Conversations with Canadians'. In prose essays that are both conversational and direct, Maracle seeks not to provide any answers to these questions she has lived with for so long. Rather, she thinks through each one using a multitude of experiences she's had as a Canadian, a First Nations leader, a woman and mother and grandmother over the course of her life. Lee Maracle's 'My Conversations with Canadians' presents a tour de force exploration into the writer's own history and a re-imagining of the future of our nation."--Provided by publisher.

Empire of the Senses' brings together pathbreaking scholarship on the role the five senses played in early America. With perspectives from across the hemisphere, exploring individual senses and multi-sensory frameworks, the volume explores how sensory perception helped frame cultural encounters, colonial knowledge, and political relationships. From early French interpretations of intercultural touch, to English plans to restructure the scent of Jamaica, these essays elucidate different ways the expansion of rival European empires across the Americas involved a vast interconnected range of sensory experiences and practices. 'Empire of the Senses' offers a new comparative perspective on the way European imperialism was constructed, operated, implemented and, sometimes, counteracted by rich and complex new sensory frameworks in the diverse contexts of early America.

Leiden ; Brill, [2018]
"Zitkala-Sa: Letters, Speeches, and Unpublished Writings, 1898-1929, edited by Tadeusz Lewandowski, offers a fascinating, intimate portrait of the Yankton Sioux writer and activist Gertrude Simmons Bonnin (1876-1938). Gertrude Bonnin, better known by her Lakota name, Zitkala-Sa, was one of the most prominent American Indians of the early 20th century. A talented writer, orator, and musician, she devoted much of her life to the protection of Native peoples. As such, Bonnin corresponded with many other distinguished persons within the early Native rights movement, including Carlos Montezuma, Richard Henry Pratt, and Arthur C. Parker, as well as Fathers Martin Kenel and William H. Ketcham of the Bureau of Catholic Indian Missions. This volume gathers together Bonnin's letters, lesser-known writings and speeches, illuminating her private and public struggles."--Provided by publisher.

Emotions, remembering and feeling better : dealing with the Indian residential schools settlement agreement in Canada
Reynaud, Anne-Marie (Lecturer), author
Bielefeld : transcript Verlag, [2017]
As the largest class action suit in Canadian history, the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement (2007-2015) had a great impact on the lives of Aboriginal survivors across Canada. In a rare account exploring survivor perspectives, Anne-Marie Reynaud considers the settlement's reconciliatory aspiration in conjunction with the local reality for the Mitchikanibikok Inik First Nations in Quebec. Drawing from anthropological fieldwork, this carefully crafted book weaves survivor experiences of the financial compensations and the Truth and Reconciliation Commission together with current theorizing on emotions, memory, trauma and transitional justice.
