Bourbon Justice: How Whiskey Law Shaped America

Brian F. Haara

Review from Bourbon Veach:

“This book combines those two interests [distilling and history] in what I consider one of the modern classics in Bourbon history books. Haara represents legal cases in a manner that is understandable to the non-lawyer and reveals how the legal cases shaped American law.”

Apostles of Empire: The Jesuits and New France

Bronwen McShea

Praise from America: The Jesuit Review:

“One comes away from the book with a sense of a lost world recovered and portrayed in loving detail. McShea has done for early modern North America and New France what Andrew Willard Jones’s Before Church and State did for the France of the 13th century. The result is a triumph of the historian’s art.”

Sacred Seeds: New World Plants in Early Modern English Literature

Edward McLean Test

Review from ISLE:

“The true innovation of Sacred Seeds rests in Edward McLean Test’s argument that the importation and knowledge of New World plants to Europe helped to shape English perceptions not only of indigenous peoples, but also of themselves.”

9/12: The Epic Battle of the Ground Zero Responders

William H. Groner and Tom Teicholz

Praise from the Jewish Journal:

“Groner and Teicholz write with both clarity and compassion about both the human struggle and the legal struggle. The reward for the reader, no less than for the first responders, is the opportunity to see justice done at long last and against long odds.”
