Books for Review

Publicists and publishers are encouraged to send new titles in nineteenth-century American history for review. We will consider books in the fields of women and gender, African American, Native American, southern, transnational, and environmental history. We are assigning books for review on topics such as law, political economy, and capitalism; slavery, emancipation, and reform movements; borderlands, expansionism, and race; immigration and Atlantic history, as well as the Civil War and Reconstruction.

We are, of course, especially interested in works that add to the understanding of the sectional crisis, the Civil War, and the struggle for freedom that changed the face of the nation during this seminal period.

Please send all books to:
