Haig’s Coup: How Richard Nixon’s Closest Aide Forced Him from Office

Ray Locker

Review in Foreword Reviews:

“The book moves almost daily through Haig’s tenure in the White House, through to Nixon’s resignation and Gerald Ford’s pardon. With the skill of an investigator, Locker dissects the “dirty tricks” and tricksters of these tumultuous times. His book sheds light on the notorious Plumbers’ break-ins, a ranting, insecure Henry Kissinger, and Haig’s secretive liaison with Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward.”



The Limits of Liberty: Mobility and the Making of the Eastern U.S.-Mexico Border

James David Nichols

Review from H-Net:

“The Limits of Liberty stands as a well-researched and deeply informative study of borderlands and transcultural studies. Throughout the nine chapters, it weaves together poignant, human stories in original, compelling, and accessible ways. Students new to borderlands history as well as seasoned readers will find much to consider in this work.”



Be with Me Always: Essays

Randon Billings Noble

Review from Barrelhouse:

“Each memory is treated with equal care and caution in Be With Me Always; Noble does not assume a single one will land on her easily, no matter how seemingly simple. For writers who often begin a sentence only to stop themselves and say: is this important enough? is this loud enough? reading Noble’s work might feel like a personal love letter—like a book that gives you permission.”



Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America

Brian F. Haara

Review from Marin County Bar Association:

“Perhaps you can tell that I really enjoyed this book. It is a fun read but it is chock full of legal case citations if you want to fall down the rabbit hole and dive into the unique facts of bourbon litigation. I highly recommend it to those interested in bourbon or justice.”



Blood Will Tell: Native Americans and Assimilation Policy

Katharine Ellinghaus

Review in Origins:

“Ellinghaus offers this book as a means for critiquing and analyzing the phenomenon of settler colonialism which allowed for tropes of authenticity to persist to today. It also adds to the story of Native Americans’ unrelenting resistance with racial science and white structures.”
