With more than 1,000 books in print, the Press publishes between 40 and 50 books each year by authors in the United States and around the world. Some of our books have wide appeal as university texts and regional classics, while others make available the results of peer-reviewed and often groundbreaking research in the humanities and social sciences. Many of our most distinguished and attractive books are made possible by support from generous individuals and institutions.

New Titles

Enchanted Ground
The Spirit Room of Jonathan Koons
In a fascinating work of religious history and cultural inquiry, Hatfield brings to life the true story of a nineteenth-century farmer-spiritualist, Jonathan Koons, whom thousands traveled to Ohio to see. As heirs to the second Great Awakening, he and his followers were part of a larger, uniquely American moment that still marks the culture today.

The Freethinker’s Daughter
A Novel
Set in 1833 Lexington, Kentucky, this historical coming-of-age novel for young readers features resonant themes and topics—slavery, abolition, racism, prejudice, class consciousness, a devastating epidemic, and deep personal loss—as its thirteen-year-old white female narrator fights injustice and uncertainty with integrity, love, and hope.

Spear
Mandela and the Revolutionaries
Spanning the years just before (and just after) Nelson Mandela’s 1962 arrest, this entirely fresh history of Umkhonto we Sizwe (MK), or Spear of the Nation, and its revolutionary milieu brings to life the period in which Mandela and his comrades fought South Africa’s apartheid regime not only with words and protests, but also with bombs and fire.

Animality and Colonial Subjecthood in Africa

From debates over the aesthetics of birds in the urban landscape to how horse racing enhanced imperial power to the ways in which water navigation impacted aquatic creatures, Saheed Aderinto argues that it is impossible to comprehend the full extent of imperial domination without considering the colonial subjecthood of animals.
