  • Waterworld
    • Abstract: Correction: We transposed text on the last paragraph on page 512 in Brett Rushforth's essay, Waterworld. The text should have read: "It is a call to take more–not less–seriously the charges by Mt. Pleasant, et al., "to produce and publish scholarship informed by tribal communities" that "refuses to colonize its objects of study," even if the boundaries of inquiry or the conclusions other will draw from our studies remain contested and unpredictable." We regret the error. The online version has been updated. As controversy swirled around the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court in October 2018, the sitting Justices quietly declined to review an appeal by the Makah Indian Tribe in a ...

  • Paradise Lost
    • Abstract: Jack E. Davis begins his Pulitzer-Prize winner, The Gulf: The Making of an American Sea, with a question: why, even today when historians are eager to take on the histories of sea and ocean worlds, have we ignored the history of the Gulf of Mexico' The Gulf is the United States' "third coast," stretching more than 1,600 miles from Key West to Brownsville, Texas. Why has that basic fact of geography not yet been used to organize a history' Davis never answers that question, but he seeks to rectify the problem, delivering an epic environmental narrative of a paradise found and then lost to real-estate development and industrial pollution.Davis is an ideal guide to the history of this arc of national territory. His ... Read More

  • Book of Books: Doctrine vs. Dialogue in a Particularly Influential
           Anthology
    • Abstract: The United States may not have any special claim on the Bible, but it is fair to say that given the consistent importance of religious identity, both Christian and Jewish, in national cultural and political discourses—a more central importance, as we are often reminded, than confessional identities have in many other modern nations—the Bible does have a special claim on the United States. While John Barton's millennia-spanning account does not focus particularly on any given national context (though his home country, England, understandably receives a little extra attention), the central argument of his history is also of strong relevance for a country in which evangelical, fundamentalist, and biblical-literalist ...

  • The Global Luster of the Early Caribbean
    • Abstract: "In fourteen hundred ninety-two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue"—so begins the popular ditty that chronicles Columbus's accidental arrival in the Americas. One of the better-known versions of this rhyming poem continues, "Columbus sailed on to find some gold / to bring back home, as he'd been told." In the stories we tell about the nascent years of the Atlantic world, historians often mimic this narrative. We begin with Columbus's journeys, tracing his voyages around the Caribbean Sea. Then we abandon the region much like the Spanish did. Within a few decades of Columbus's voyages, the Spanish had deserted the shores of the Caribbean to move into the interiors of North and South America in search of gold. Dazzled ... Read More

  • American Slavery, American State: Rethinking Slavery and the Creation of
           British North America
    • Abstract: The 400th anniversary of the year 1619 in the Virginia colony has given the public and professional historians an opportunity to reflect on the importance of that year: the development of the Virginia House of Burgesses, the first elected legislative body in the British American colonies; and the arrival of 20 Angolans for sale, stolen for slavery by the Portuguese on their slave ship San Juan Bautista before English privateers stole them in an attack in the Gulf of Mexico and brought them to Point Comfort, Virginia on the White Lion.

  • Property Relations and Reinterpretations
    • Abstract: Up and down the eastern seaboard in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, English and Dutch settlers engaged in land transactions with Indigenous individuals and communities. Many of these agreements resulted in the creation of paper deeds. But the nature of these agreements and the documents they generated are anything but clear. Were so-called Indian titles fabrications constructed by settlers who were unable or unwilling to obtain royal or colonial patents' Did Native communities sell land only in order to not have it taken from them outright' Were they swindled out of their lands in bad-faith deals, as in the popular but apocryphal story of the Lenape sale of Manhattan Island for $24 to the Dutch' Did they ...

  • Documenting Difference, Documenting Dominance
    • Abstract: Rana A. Hogarth's Medicalizing Blackness: Making Racial Difference in the Atlantic World, 1780–1840 investigates how medical practitioners in the eighteenth- and-nineteenth-century Atlantic World studied black bodies to improve their own professional standing. Physicians stressed difference between races in relation to disease and the medical spaces where ill health was treated. In so doing, they medicalized blackness. Hogarth does an excellent job integrating diverse primary documents into her source base and contextualizing her research in relation to the relevant historiographic literature.Hogarth asserts that the ways that white medical professionals wrote about black bodies in books, articles, correspondence ...

  • Benjamin Franklin's Winter of Discontent in Passy, 1784–1785
    • Abstract: As his grandson, William Temple Franklin, was preparing for a long-sought trip from Passy, France, to see his father in England, Benjamin Franklin sat down to write to his old friend, Richard Price, August 16, 1784. He began happily enough, listing letters written and received and reporting on the new "Art of Flying," clear proof that they had indeed entered "a new Epoch" (p. 12). "It will be well for your Philosophers," he said, to obtain from the French balloonists then heading over to England "what they know, or you will be behind-hand; which in mechanic Operations is unusual for Englishmen" (pp. 12–13). Franklin missed his friends in England. He was prevented from travelling anywhere—even outside his home for ... Read More

  • Why Bad History Isn't Just Bad, It's Dangerous
    • Abstract: Robert O'Connell does not set out to tell a particularly new story about George Washington's Revolutionary War experience. There is nothing inherently wrong with repackaging an old story; it is not that different from Philippa Gregory writing one hundred novels on English royalty or the creators of NCIS producing different series set in different cities. I admittedly have consumed Gregory's books and the NCIS franchise with great satisfaction. There is also nothing wrong with scholars producing syntheses that bring together decades of scholarship with a new perspective.I will be the first to argue that there is still much to study and examine about the Founding Era, including the founding generation—especially with ...

  • The Tracks of Settler Colonialism
    • Abstract: The early twenty-first century has witnessed a surge of scholarly interests in the dominant technology of nineteenth-century American expansion: the railroad. Over the past decade, railway histories have reinvigorated debates about the incorporation of America, the growth of the federal government, and the conquest of Native America. As a growing cadre of historians of American infrastructure have identified, railways helped to drive and determine U.S. state formation.Abraham Lincoln's presidency not only figures prominently in this infrastructural turn but also provides a potent periodization for the rapid changes attending such expansion. For example, both of Richard White's recent nineteenth-century overviews ... Read More

  • Race, Citizenship, and Separation
    • Abstract: In the decades between the American Revolution and the Civil War, were free Black people citizens of the United States' The Dred Scott ruling of 1857 gave an emphatically negative answer to this question. The author of that decision, Roger B. Taney, plays an important role in Martha S. Jones's Birthright Citizens, a compelling exploration of Black belonging in antebellum America. For Jones, the citizenship status of African Americans before the Civil War was much more complicated than Taney's judgment suggested. Borrowing from the political theorist Bonnie Honig, Jones insists that citizenship and rights were established not by top-down rulings or legal texts but by the actions of people of color themselves, and ...

  • A Biographer's Quest to Uncover Intersectional Activism
    • Abstract: Nancy Hewitt joins a growing cadre of historians of women who have turned to biography as a special tool for accessing women's past. Barbara Tuchman famously described biography as a "prism" into history, a way to explain something that might perhaps be inexplicable without turning to an individual life and experience.1 Tuchman wrote in the face of conventional wisdom that had looked upon biography as somehow "less than" the traditional historical pursuit, and even she hedged, "I do not think of myself as a biographer; biography is just a form I have used once or twice to encapsulate history."2 In spite of the lingering sense that biography remains what David Nasau termed "the profession's unloved stepchild," in ...

  • The Feel of Freedom: Stories of Emancipation and State-Making in the Civil
           War Era
    • Abstract: Every book is a commodity, but good history can't quite be consumed. Good history is stubbornly indigestible, an irritant in the excretory system of agents and publicists and TED Talk bookers that churn out high-quality junk food that passes sometimes for history but then passes from us without leaving a trace. Good history nourishes the field, sends us off to write more, in extension and at times also in irritation.It is a joy and a relief to say that these two works cannot quite be consumed. Which is also a way of saying they cannot be easily digested, that they deserve our critique. These two books ask us to re-examine the daily, subjective experience of Civil War Era emancipation. The books therefore challenge ... Read More

  • Fictions, Borders, and Madness
    • Abstract: Kristen Epps and Andrew Diemer have made valuable contributions to our collective historical knowledge, and their books deserve to be read. These historians have completed a prodigious amount of research and have based their arguments on a careful analysis of sources. And the arguments of each are clear, focused, and carefully constructed. In short, the books fulfill all of the requirements necessary for a sound historical monograph.But just prior to accepting this book review, I read Sapiens (2015) by Yuval Noah Harari, which fundamentally altered the way I approached this essay. In his book, Harari suggests (but does not assert) that Homo sapiens became the dominant species on the planet because of our ability to ... Read More

  • Just a Lot of Woids
    • Abstract: Free enterprise in America has been under threat for the better part of a century, according to the people Lawrence B. Glickman id entifies as its "apostles" (p. 17). Although (according to its guardians) free enterprise has long supplied the United States with unparalleled blessings of wealth and prosperity, it is also always in constant mortal peril. It is so fragile that curbing even its most libertine or inefficient excesses marks a fatal step onto a slope so slippery that the first footfall leads inevitably to the last; move even an inch in that direction and all the benefits bestowed by free enterprise will be lost. If you think of that highway to hell as the road to serfdom, you will benefit immensely from ... Read More

  • The Culture of Fear in World War One
    • Abstract: In 1917 the pioneering American film director D.W. Griffith visited the Belgian town of Ypres on the Western Front to conduct research for his movie Hearts of the World after being given exceptional access to the lines by British authorities eager to harness his skills for propaganda purposes. Despite receiving license to film whatever he wished, what he found was perplexing. The battlefield was "too colossal to be dramatic," he later complained, its human figures "hidden away in ditches" leaving "literally nothing that meets the eye but an aching desolation of nothingness." "You might as well try to describe the ocean or the Milky Way," he lamented.1 Despite being the most famous and innovative creator of war ... Read More

  • Hopi Trailblazers Expand Meanings of Running
    • Abstract: Running speaks across different languages and cultures. To some, running is a prayer that transcends the physical. My Diné ancestors learned to greet the sun each morning with a prayer and run toward the rising sunbeams. They learned to run for both physical and spiritual strength. Running was a survival tactic for my father who tried to escape an Indian boarding school in the 1950s. As Hopi scholar Matthew Sakiestewa Gilbert of the Village of Upper Munqapi explains in his book, Hopi Runners, U.S. officials incarcerated Native Americans by sending them to boarding schools such as the Carlisle Indian Industrial Institute, where they continued to run literally and figuratively. Carlisle was one of many boarding ... Read More

  • Challenging Historical Iconography: A Look at Women's Everyday Political
           Mobilization
    • Abstract: Iconography in history can be a dangerous thing. It encourages the deification of men such as Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X as lone freedom fighters in the long civil rights movement. It codes Pan-African strategists as male and reduces the long and wide geographical arc of white supremacy to the actions of a few men such as George Wallace and Ross Barnett. The danger with historical iconography is that it leads to inaccurate and reductionist accounts of history. It often marginalizes women's leadership or excludes them altogether.Three recently published monographs about black and white women's everyday political mobilization, Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Global Struggle for ...

  • Diversity, Unwelcome Returns, and the Writing of U.S.–Mexico
           Borderlands History
    • Abstract: Thanks to a recent flurry of books on the U.S.–Mexico borderlands, an even more complicated picture of that region has emerged with important lessons both for our current political moment and historical scholarship. No matter how much work academics do to correct the narrative, many conservatives today still portray the region as ridden with crime and overtaken by undocumented immigrants. If pundits can see beyond this skewed view of things, they focus on longstanding historical connections between the United States and Mexico and argue that we need to build bridges between our countries instead of walls. If observers have an even deeper historical understanding, they may see how the past says a lot about how we ... Read More

  • Moving Beyond the First Rough Draft: The Emerging History of the Flint
           Water Crisis
    • Abstract: If contemporary news reports about the Flint water crisis constituted the "first rough draft" of that calamity's distressing history, then the 2018 publication of Anna Clark's powerful book The Poisoned City: Flint's Water and the American Urban Tragedy marked the completion of a second, and significantly revised, version of that story. By now, the outlines of the first draft of the history of Flint's water disaster are familiar to millions. According to most news accounts, the trouble began in April 2014, when the city government—then under the tight grip of an unelected "emergency manager" appointed by Michigan's Republican governor Rick Snyder—canceled its longstanding water service agreement with Detroit in ...

  • Spies, Snitches, and Subterfuge: The History and Future of Intelligence
    • Abstract: On 12 April 2019, news organizations across the world announced the arrest of Wikileaks co-founder Julian Assange after the Ecuadorian government revoked his asylum status and forced him to leave its embassy in London.1 This nonprofit organization gained international fame by publishing the secret information of governments and corporations. Wikileaks became more even famous—some might say infamous—in 2010 when it published the U.S. soldier Chelsea Manning's Afghan and Iraq war logs, which consist of hundreds of thousands of secret U.S. Army reports and diplomatic cables that often portrayed U.S. conduct in a less-than-flattering light. The debates about public information and government secrecy only intensified ... Read More

  • A Feminist 'Night at the Museum' at the Suffrage Centennial
    • Abstract: In her 2005 Distinguished Historian address to the Society for Historians of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, Jean H. Baker urged her colleagues to "get right" with women's suffrage and suggested several methods for doing so. Despite the centrality of women's suffrage to the formation and practice of American democracy and despite the dramatic, far-reaching, three generations of activism required to attain it, historians, Baker charged, seemed to have a collective disinterest in and forgetfulness about the movement. As evidence, she cited the relatively few recent dissertations concerned with women's suffrage, as well as the movement's underrepresentation in history textbooks and survey courses where it is still ...
