Notable 2016 titles include:
The Free State of Jones: Mississippi's Longest Civil War
Victoria E. Bynum | University of North Carolina Press
"Bynum is to be saluted not only for her profound scholarship but for her evenhanded accounts of matters that remain volatile and controversial. . . . [This] book should be praised as an original and cogent piece of scholarship on a devilishly complicated and demanding subject."
Truman, Congress, and Korea: The Politics of America's First Undeclared War
Larry Blomstedt | University Press of Kentucky
"This historical analysis sheds new light on the political happenings of the war and posits several new interpretations of work done by historians in the past. The work thus adds a new and critical component to the literature of the war and should appeal to Korean War scholars of all stripes as well as scholars and general readers interested in the Truman presidency, American politics during a divisive period of US history, and presidential decision making."
—Paul Pierpaoli, author of Truman and Korea: The Political Culture of the Early Cold War
