List members may be interested in my new book Uncommon Alliances: Cultural Narratives of Migration in the New Europe, which brings into conversation postcolonial and postcommunist migration narratives from Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe as it furthers a critique of the European Union as a "consensual" imperial space.
I'm very pleased to announce the publication of a volume that I edited, Theravada Buddhism in Colonial Contexts (Routledge 2018). The book brings together ten scholars talking about the experiences of colonialism across the Theravada world from the nineteenth century up to the present.

Faking the News: What Rhetoric Can Teach Us About Donald J. Trump (Societas Press)
Ed. Ryan Skinnell
Donald J. Trump’s speaking and tweeting invite passionate reactions—maybe he’s a blue-collar billionaire hero, or maybe he’s an illiterate,
unqualified idiot. Whatever you think, there’s no question that he was highly rhetorical. This book is about what made him so persuasive and why
it’s important to understand.

Hi all. Thank you for including me in the conversation. My name is Nick Waddy, and I teach European and African history at SUNY Alfred. My bread and butter course is Western Civ Since 1648, of which I teach multiple sections every semester. I also teach upper-level classes in African history and 20th century military history.
