Independent Mexico

Will Folwer

Review from H-LatAm:

“Fowler crafts an exceptionally cogent narrative of Mexico’s tumultuous first fifty years and provides a pithy synthesis of recent advances in the historiography of Mexican independence, both of which will be useful to advanced undergraduates and graduate students unfamiliar with the topic.”

Crude Nation

Raúl Gallegos

Review from Americas Quarterly:

“Gallegos clearly knows Venezuela inside and out, and the way he draws parallels between the current crisis and similar episodes in the past is enlightening.”

George McGovern and the Democratic Insurgents

Hal Wert

Praise from Great Plains Research:

“Focusing primarily on two of the Midwest’s most illustrious politicians, Minnesota’s Eugene McCarthy and South Dakota’s George McGovern, the book is a peon to the honesty, dedication, and patriotism of these two senators . . . It is truly a delight to turn the pages and see what image crops up next.”
