A HISTORIC JOURNEY
GIANT'S CAUSEWAY
New in Paperback!
Tom Chaffin
“A vivid social and intellectual history of Douglass’s Irish, Scottish, and British travels, and of their influence throughout his life.” —Joan Walsh · Salon

“Chaffin deftly argues that Douglass's encounter with Irish politics helped to shape his own politics. . . . The study is well researched, drawing on letters, journals, and newspaper accounts, and the writing brings these figures to life, presenting Douglass in all his complexities.” —CHOICE

MARGARET GARNER
La Vinia Delois Jennings


Thirty years after Toni Morrison re-imagined the heart-wrenching story of Margaret Garner in her bestselling novel Beloved, Jennings’s edited volume records key events, debates, and critical assessments of Morrison's success with Garner’s story as a libretto, with contributors ranging from opera scholars to specialists in American slavery studies.

SOUTHERN HISTORY & CULTURE

THE RISEN PHOENIX
Luis-Alejandro Dinnella-Borrego


“As The Risen Phoenix brilliantly demonstrates, African Americans transformed antebellum freedom struggles into crusades for civil, political, and educational equality. A superb, important book.” —Douglas Egerton

KEEP ON KEEPING ON
Brian J. Daugherity


"The story of the NAACP-led fight for school desegregation in Virginia in the decades following the 1954 Brown ruling has been one of the great untold stories of the civil rights era—until now. Keep On Keeping On sheds critical historical light on the racial inequities and division that continue to subvert the opportunities of countless children in Virginia and beyond." Patricia A. Sullivan

THE ROAD TO BLACK NED'S FORGE
Turk McCleskey
"The remarkable story of Edward Tarr, a black freed man who lived with a white wife and worked as a blacksmith. . . . A deeply researched study of slavery on the frontier." —CHOICE

A Choice Outstanding Academic Title for 2014

HIDDEN HISTORY
Lynn Rainville
