Fascist and Anti-Fascist Propaganda in America:

The Dispatches of Italian Ambassador Gelasio Caetani
Pellegrino Nazzaro
ISBN: 9781934043660

"Scholars are in Nazzaro’s debt for his research in recuperating and focusing on an important slice of Italian American memory--one that should be part of their identity--and for his contribution to correcting the historical record that sees Italian Americans responding to the manipulation of the prominenti as active or passive supporters of Italian Fascism up to the entrance of the United States into World War II. ... Nazzaro has helped reopen the issue of the struggle between Fascism and anti-Fascism in the United States, especially in the 1920s." – H-net Read More..

Girls Becoming Teachers:

An Historical Analysis of Western Australian Women Teachers, 1911–1940
Janina Trotman
ISBN: 9781604975864

More recent scholarship has called for the need to investigate the subjective experiences of becoming and being a woman teacher thus creating a greater set of bounded studies which pay close attention to ethnic, class and regional differences as well as instances where women teachers exercised autonomy and resistance. This book challenges the assumption that families and schools unproblematically reproduced prevailing gender regimes. Read More..

The Green Roosevelt:

Theodore Roosevelt in Appreciation of Wilderness, Wildlife, and Wild Places
Zachary Michael Jack
ISBN: 9781604976939

A handful of collections of Roosevelt’s outdoor writings published to date have mostly followed two well-worn paths: Roosevelt the Sportsman and Roosevelt the Adventurer. This nature-appreciative anthology, then, aims to show a kinder, gentler TR, a man who, importantly, rendered false the supposed divide between sportsman and naturalist. Read More..

Forgetting and Representing the Mao Years

Henderson Professor of Chinese Literature, Harvard University Read More..

The History of Chinese Buddhist Bibliography:

Censorship and Transformation of the Tripitaka
Tanya Storch
ISBN: 9781604978773

"As the first general study of Chinese Buddhist bibliography in English by an author who demonstrates a thorough command of the material, this book is the first place scholars should turn to for information about the structure and formation of the Chinese Buddhist canon. This book deserves a place on the bookshelf of every specialist in pre-modern Chinese, Korean, and Japanese Buddhism." – John Kieschnick, Stanford University Read More..
