Oklahoma Odyssey

Review in VAA Veteran:

Oklahoma Odyssey includes a lot of interesting details based on a significant amount of research Mort undertook. It’s what I consider ‘quiet research’ because the facts never slow down or interfere with Mort’s great storytelling.

At its heart, this is a story about family and how even the strongest of bonds can be tested in stressful times.”

Enemies among Us

Review in Mainstream Weekly:

“[The] book presents tremendous and fascinating studies for the public on the history of internment. The reading is highly recommended to anyone interested in the history of US experience with civilian internees.”

Telltale Women

Review in Kritikon Litterarum

“In this comprehensive and engaging study, Allison Machlis Meyer considers the representation of early modern royal women in the histories of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries (those by Polydore Vergil, Thomas More, Edward Hall, John Stow, Richard Grafton, Raphael Holinshed) and in the drama of the period–Shakespeare’s Richard III, Heywood’s Edward IV, Marlowe’s Edward II, John Ford’s Perkin Warbeck–as well as in Elizabeth Cary’s History of Edward II and Francis Bacon’s History of King Henry VII.”


Review in Kirkus Reviews:

“Throughout, White chronicles the many internal struggles he faced with his crew, including the effects of isolation, boredom, and alcohol consumption. He also writes about the difficulties of navigating issues involving family and friends back home. During the third winter, the Covid-19 pandemic was sweeping across the world. While he and the crew were insulated from the virus itself, they endured fear and helplessness for the safety of their family members.

An enlightening perspective on a remote region of the globe.”

The Time Left Between Us

Review in Library Journal:

“DeFonzo, in this debut, has written a fascinating combination of World War II history, European travelogue, mystery, and personal memoir. DeFonzo worked for more than a decade to preserve Del’s past and the historical context. Hers is a deeply personal venture but also one of significant importance now and for all future generations to learn from.

Coming to Terms with America

Review in H-Net:

“In Coming to Terms with America, Jonathan Sarna gathers fifteen of his previously published
articles and chapters written over the course of three and a half decades, between 1981 and 2016.

Sarna sees the question of how to be both fully true to Jewish tradition and fully part of the
American nation as the central issue that American Jews have grappled with.

Sarna provides plenty of evidence for his position, and argues it in a clear and accessible
style. Coming to Terms with America offers in one place fascinating chapters in American
Jewish history, and especially the history of American Judaism.”
