Mahagony: A Novel

Starred review in Publishers Weekly:

“Glissant (1928–2011) is as comprehensive as he is unconcerned with the encumbrance of linearity, and has found the perfect form to explore the inescapable and reverberating legacies of colonialism. This is a transcendent work of art.”

The Great Kosher Meat War of 1902: Immigrant Housewives and the Riots That Shook New York City

Praise from the Washington Independent Review of Books:

“Seligman, whose writing has appeared in the Washington Post and the Wall Street Journal, has done a service in bringing this little-known part of American history to our attention, one which demonstrates that the convergence of activism, socialism, and unionization prevalent in the early 20th century remains a staple in protests to this day.”

The Kennedys in the World: How Jack, Bobby, and Ted Remade America’s Empire

Review in Library Journal:

“This extensively researched and engaging book will appeal to anyone interested in post-war American history, foreign policy, and the Kennedy family.”
