  1. Protests in the Streets: 1968 Across the Globe

    Edited by Elaine Carey
    General Editor: Alfred J. Andrea

    Protests in the Streets: 1968 Across the Globe

    Series: Critical Themes in World History

    "A really interesting and provocative take on 1968. This book addresses the truly global dimensions—and the unexpected, often long-term consequences—of that year of protest. It’s an original and highly usable comparative history sure to attract student interest." —Peter N. Stearns, George Mason University

  2. Shackles of Iron: Slavery Beyond the Atlantic

    Stewart Gordon
    General Editor: Alfred J. Andrea

    Shackles of Iron: Slavery Beyond the Atlantic

    Series: Critical Themes in World History

    "Gordon’s survey of the topic makes it clear that slavery in the Americas can be understood much better if we put it in this larger context, in terms of both time and place. His chapters on East African and Mediterranean slavery are especially valuable, since these were contemporary with so-called Atlantic slavery and can provide students with valid points of comparison, revealing both the similarities and the variable nature of early-modern bondage. The final chapter is especially timely, reminding readers that much of what we think of as enslavement hasn’t really gone away, but simply slipped below the radar of the world media. All in all, Gordon makes it clear that, though it has arisen in different guises and at many different times and places, slavery has been and remains deeply rooted in human society. A rewarding introduction for anyone looking to better understand slavery as a world-wide institution."
         —Robert Davis, The Ohio State University
