Forestport Breaks   The Forestport Breaks
A Nineteenth-Century Conspiracy along the Black River Canal

Michael Doyle
In The Forestport Breaks, Michael Doyle illuminates a fresh and fascinating chapter in the colorful history of the Erie Canal. This is the canal's shadowy side, a world of political rot and plotting men, and it extended well beyond one rough and tumble town.

John Redmond and Irish Unity, 1912-1918   John Redmond and Irish Unity, 1912-1918
Joseph P. Finnan
John Redmond was one of the most influential leaders of Irish nationalism. A classic tragic hero, Redmond displayed more integrity than his fellow contemporary Irish leaders. He was a sophisticated intellectual with an open mind but was plagued by a fatal flaw-his unreasonable optimism. Redmond's trust in British politicians, especially his Liberal allies, led him and Ireland to the events that probably had the most impact on Irish history since the Great Famine of the 1840s-his active support for Great Britain in the first World War. It severely damaged Anglo-Irish relations for three generations, and if Redmond's brand of inclusive, cosmopolitan nationalism would have been introduced sooner, it could have saved Britain and Ireland from decades of conflict.

Irish Orientalism   Irish Orientalism
A Literary and Intellectual History

Joseph Lennon
Centuries before W. B. Yeats wove Indian, Japanese, and Irish forms together in his poetry and plays, Irish writers found kinships in Asian and West Asian cultures. This book maps the unacknowledged discourse of Irish Orientalism within Ireland's complex colonial heritage. Relying on cultural and postcolonial theory, Joseph Lennon examines Irish impressions of Asia and West Asia, understood together as the Orient in the West.

 
 
Joyce and Reality   Joyce and Reality

John Gordon
"Joyce was a realist, but his reality was not ours," writes John Gordon in his new book.

Mohammad Mosaddeq and the 1953 Coup in Iran   Mohammad Mosaddeq and the 1953 Coup in Iran
Edited by Mark J. Gasiorowski and Malcolm Byrne
The book examines the turbulent political climate that prevailed in Iran during Mosaddeq's tenure, the confrontation between Iran and Britain for control over Iran's oil, the strategic considerations that led U.S. officials to opt for a coup, and the details of the coup itself. Based on exhaustive research by leading academic experts in the field, this is the most authoritative account of the tragic events that led to the overthrow of Mosaddeq. With the recent declassification of CIA documents regarding the 1953 coup that overthrew Mohammad Mossadeq's government in Iran, there is an opportunity for new in-depth analysis into not only the coup d'état itself but the events that inevitably led up to it.

Winslow Homer in the Adirondacks   Winslow Homer in the Adirondacks
David Tatham
"Winslow Homer made his first visit to the Adirondacks in 1870 and his last in 1910, just two months before his death. His first and subsequent visits to the region coincided with the growing public concern that led to the creation of the Adirondack Forest Preserve in 1885 and the Adirondack State Park in 1892. . . . David Tatham demonstrates very convincingly that Homer's 'Adirondack oils and watercolors constitute a highly original examination of the human race's relationship to the natural world at a time when long-established assumptions about humans, nature, and art itself were undergoing profound change'. . . . The visual focus is upon the artist's twenty-four Adirondack oils and watercolors that are superbly reproduced in full color. . . . An impressive work that is fully worthy of its subject."
