Re: REVIEW: Saionz on Bradley, '"We Never Retreat": Filibustering Expeditions into Spanish Texas, 1812-1822' (H-War)

This book on the early southwest filibusters is most welcome, but there is a tendency in this field to overlook the half-dozen filibuster invasions of Canada in the late 1830s launched between Maine and Detroit, as significant exceptions to the much more frequent fishing in the troubled waters of Latin America.

titles on the reciprocities of Children, Consumption of Empire, and Cultural Geography

Dear Colleagues,

I am looking for articles and books which study the interrelation of childhood and (European and Asian, esp. US American) imperialism, ideally from popular cultural and cultural geographical perspectives to update the Literature Review of my forthcoming first-book From Amoy to Zanesville: American Children and World Geography at the Turn pf the Twentieth Century.

Thank you so much for the suggestions!

Regards from Germany,
