“A wonderful scholarly book that even has a little “what the hell” in it. This collection belongs in all libraries, from the academic to the public. It’s that important, and that readable.”
The Hemingway Review









“Authors John and Mary Lou Missall have approached these wars in a refreshingly different manner, avoiding the limitations of a military history.”

“This well-written history will not be the last word on one of America’s darkest eras.”
American Archaeology







“Ruby McCollum, a black woman, was tried for murdering a white doctor who she claimed mentally and physically abused her. Evans uses the trial–which was covered by novelist Zora Neale Hurston–to examine the institutionalized silence that surrounded black women in the 1950s South.”
MS Magazine

“…a superb study that those interested in history, literature, gender and race studies, and the politics of oppression will find invaluable in understanding the ongoing complexities of race relations informed by gender and class in the United States.”
The Journal of Southern History




“A worthwhile addition to the discussion of Florida’s environmental history.”
Lakeland Ledger

“A serious academic dealing with women’s role in preserving Florida’s natural assets, but it also contains the elements of a horror story. . . Leslie Kemp Poole deserves praise for her copious research and for creating a highly readable account of the role of women in preserving Florida’s unique natural resources.”
St. Augustine Record






“This welcome contribution to the history of the civil rights movement, Southern race-based politics of the 1950s and 1960s, and the public career of North Carolina’s Jesse Helms is well researched, extensively footnoted, intelligently written, and interesting to read… an engrossing book.”

“Thrift also goes beyond the typical stereotypes of southern bigots to make Helms’s footprint on the conservative movement large.”
The Journal of American History






“A one of a kind publication that few if any of the next generation of culicidologists could replicate. Thus, this book will be around and in frequent use for a long time to come.”
Center for Vectorborne Diseases
