9781496203847-Perfect.inddIllicit Love: Interracial Sex and Marriage in the United States and Australia
By Ann McGrath

“McGrath simultaneously provides a broad examination of intermarriage law on two continents and breathes life into the intimate relationships forged between men and women of many races and communities. . . . Illicit Love is a powerful testament to the power of personal stories to complicate our understanding of larger historical processes.”—James Joseph Buss, Western Historical Quarterly

“Superbly written.”—Liz Conor, Aboriginal History

“A valuable and arresting work of scholarship.”—Pacific Historical Review

9781496202246-Perfect (3).inddExcavating Nauvoo: The Mormons and the Rise of Historical Archaeology in America
By Benjamin C. Pykles

“This thoughtful and carefully researched book, bolstered by many archival sources and oral histories, is an important reflection on the relatively young discipline of historical archaeology. Through the narrative of Nauvoo, Pykles teaches us much about the materials and materiality of the recent past and how identities take shape through stories we tell about that past, our ancestors, and our profession.”—Shannon A. Novak, Journal of Anthropological Research

“Pykles provides an even-handed and fascinating glimpse into the use of historic preservation and archaeology as both a restoration and a proselytizing tool.”—Chris Merritt, Montana, The Magazine of Western History

“Readers interested in the development of historical archaeology in the United States, in Mormon history, or in religious groups’ struggles to control public perceptions of their past will find this book rewarding.”—Stephen C. Taysom, Indiana Magazine of History

9780803254251-JacketBlue.inddTransforming the Fisheries: Neoliberalism, Nature, and the Commons
By Patrick Bresnihan

“A must read.”—Antipode

“Eloquently written, deeply researched, deftly argued. This is a brilliant, critical reappraisal of capitalism’s relationship with the sea and should be read by anyone concerned with environmental crisis more generally.”—Christian Parenti, author of Tropic of Chaos: Climate Change and the New Geography of Violence

9780803253384-JacketGray.inddViolence in Capitalism: Devaluing Life in an Age of Responsibility
By James A. Tyner

Violence in Capitalism encourages us to unpack the concept of violence in order to see previously unrecognized forms of violence. But further to this, Tyner exhorts the reader to understand that, in refusing to take responsibility for this violence, we are in fact responsible for its perpetuation—that the distinction between ‘letting die’ and decisively enacting violence is a false dichotomy.”—Times Literary Supplement

“Tyner directly challenges preconceptions, requiring a modification of one’s worldview and, in many cases, one’s own idealistic interpretation of space through time in the context of violence.”—L. Yacher, CHOICE
