Hello H-CivWar readers,
today we feature Roseann Bacha-Garza, Christopher L. Miller, and Russell K. Skowronek, the editors of The Civil War on the Rio Grande, 1846–1876 (Texas A&M University Press, 2019) Link
Dear H-Borderlands Subscribers,
We have resumed our work in curating the latest titles from the Book Channel that might be of interest to you. Do you want to read about gold rushes at a global scale? What about the work of first responders in the U.S.-Mexico border? Or the design of the legendary Orient Express? Maybe a new perspective on the incorporation of Hawai'i as a state? Or, maybe, about the neoliberal making of a Patagonian enclave?
Scroll down to see all titles!
