The Great Oklahoma Swindle
Review in Publishers Weekly:
“Journalist Cobb offers an unflattering and eye-opening history of his home state of Oklahoma. Cobb hangs out the state’s dirty laundry… Cobb argues that honesty in reckoning with Oklahoma’s past and increased work for social justice remains the only solution. This unflinching look at Oklahoma’s singular past helpfully fills in lesser-known aspects of the historical record”
Great review in Pank Magazine:
“There has been some debate about ‘Best of’ literary lists, whether they are too narrow in their scope or simply biased toward works that have been bestowed with awards… Regardless of where you land in this debate, it’s hard to imagine, as 2019 nears its end, that Hard Damage won’t be on every one of those lists. It’s an incredible achievement that doesn’t sugarcoat the subjects it tackles, and if there is a book that so thoroughly explores the human condition this year, it is undoubtedly Aber’s, one that will move you as much as it will stir serious discussion with others and, most importantly, with yourself.”
J. Justin Castro
Review on H-Net:
“Castro’s biography of Rolland amply demonstrates the utility of biography for charting shifts in the role of science in state-making during and after the Mexican Revolution… Castro’s biography of Rolland not only satisfies the questions it sets out to answer but also leaves on the table many questions about the links between expertise and capitalism in state-led development in the twentieth century.”
Ida Altman and David Wheat
Review in H-LatAm:
“Altman and Wheat have edited an admirable work of recovery and reinterpretation. In it, established and emerging scholars get beyond the stale emphasis on well-worn early Caribbean topics.”
Review on H-Net:
“Contesting French West Africa is a must-read for Africanists and scholars of the French empire in West Africa because Gamble makes extensive use of colonial archives, which can guide other research regarding education and colonialism.”
Rosemary Lévy Zumwalt
Reviewed by Shepherd Express:
“Boas spoke out against the prevailing presumption of white supremacy even if, as biographer Rosemary Lévy Zumwalt points out, he wasn’t entirely free of the era’s racist theories. Zumwalt makes a strong case that Boas was responsible for significant strides forward in understanding our world.”
Review from Carnegie Mellon University:
“Midge captured me from the opening essay… Treat yourself to a fast-moving correction of any vestiges you may have of the stoic, unsmiling Native stereotype and enjoy at least a Tweet or a one-liner from Tiffany Midge. You’re sure to learn something as you laugh.”
Review by The Guy Who Reviews Sports Book:
“The concept of this book sounds very simple, yet it is one that is unique among sports books which are available… Those baseball fans who had in their possession baseball cards at one time or another will certainly want to read this book, but one does not have to be a baseball fan to thoroughly enjoy this book that is not only thought-provoking but also emotion-provoking as the reader will fell a large range of emotions while reading it.”
John Sibley Williams
Review on Savvy Verse & Wit:
“Skin Memory by John Sibley Williams is an amazing collection that tackles large themes while grounding each moment in real life. A harrowing collection that strives for peace and hope, a journey into the self and outside of it.”
