Roger Angell and a Life in Baseball Writing
Praised in America Magazine:
“Of the recent books I have read about baseball, Joe Bonomo’s book chronicling the career of Roger Angell, No Place I Would Rather Be, is one of the best, not only for Bonomo’s considerable writing skills, but also for his compelling portrayal of Angell’s erudition and unique focus on the “lesser and sweeter moments” of the sport he loves.”
How Richard Nixon’s Closest Aide Forced Him from Office
Review by American Free Press:
“In Haig’s Coup: How Richard Nixon’s Closest Aide Forced Him from Office, Ray Locker’s newest work on the fall of Richard Nixon, we see exactly how Chief of Staff Gen. Alexander Haig orchestrated Nixon’s demise and resignation.”
Featured in Pank Magazine:
“Muradyan’s poems are not only concise, but funny, drawing on a plethora of figures that guide us through moments that are nostalgic, bittersweet, and at times utterly heartbreaking.”
Angling for a More Sustainable Planet
Featured in Cool Green Science‘s Summer Book Picks 2019:
“Spitzer’s writings are not the usual musings of a philosophical fisherman… He takes a rollicking, madcap, sometimes surreal approach to fishing and conservation – pursuing fishy monsters with zeal, and finding life lessons along the way.”
Public Memory and the Reframing of Jackie Robinson’s Radical Legacy
Recommended by KNUP Sports:
“This book moves away from the sanitized area of his life and the oversimplifying statements that defined his legacy and brings the readers into the area of #42 that didn’t make it into the public realm… This book by Dave Naze should be on every baseball fans bookshelf no matter what team you show allegiance to or your views on political matters.”
Wargaming and the U.S. Navy Preparations for World War II
John M. Lillard
Review in Technology and Culture:
“This is an important book. It fills a gap in the scholarship of a period. Just as the future admirals made their mistakes on the gaming surfaces at Newport instead of the waters of the Pacific, so this book may help us prepare for future wars. It does this not by telling readers what to think, but by showing us how we can learn to think.”
Feature on BC BookLook:
“Ravalli has written a book that is at once informative and often fascinating… In it he not only discussed the substantial benefits of developing a fur trade between America and Asia but also presented a blueprint as to how it might be prosecuted.”
The D-Day Strategy and the Atomic Bomb
Reviewed on A Blog on Winston Churchill:
“It is an insightful study of the Anglo-American relationship from the Casablanca Conference until the last weeks of 1943… Padgett additionally provides interesting details about the constraints on Allied shipping as American divisions, soldiers and equipment, were transported to Britain in advance of the invasion of Normandy. Advocating Overlord is a fascinating narrative.”

Abraham Joshua Heschel
Feature in Moment:
“This collection of Heschel’s writings from his German and English period before coming to the U.S.—a large number appear in English translation for the first time—foreshadows many of the themes Heschel developed with greater literary art in his American years.”
