Recent Reviews

Under the H-Net Commons system, reviews commissioned by H-Disability go directly to the H-Disability page, where they are easily found (by clicking "reviews"); but they don't go out to network members who prefer to read content by email.  So, just to catch us up, here are links to two very recent H-Disability reviews:

Alison Carey reviews James Trent Jr., The Manliest Man: Samuel G. Howe and the Contours of Nineteenth-Century American Reform:
