Finding a New Midwestern History
Jon K. Lauck
Review by the Russell Kirk Center:
“…the chapters cover a wealth of topics. Many of the authors take a fairly conventional approach to the region—there are the customary chapters, for example, on Native Americans, European immigration, African Americans—but all are deftly written and provide a good overview of their topics and include the most recent scholarship. The greatest strength of this volume is the emphasis on cultural history.”
The Untold Story of How Women Saved Bourbon, Scotch, and Irish Whiskey
Called “riveting” by Travel Distilled:
“It’s a rare one where I can say that I didn’t skip a single word, but this is one of those rare books that had me riveted from start to finish… Fred Minnick brings his story up-to-date (the book was first published in 2013) by profiling and talking to today’s whiskey women, such as Rachel Barrie, who was the first modern female master whisky blender in Scotland, and Helen Mullholland, who in 2005 became Rachel’s Irish equivalent, at Bushmills.”
How the Jewish Bible Revolutionized Ethics
Review in Providence Magazine:
“In his excellent new book Justice for All: How the Jewish Bible Revolutionized Ethics, Jeremiah Unterman documents how the ancient Israelites birthed so much of the moral regime that we nowadays take for granted.”
