Book Cover

The Shadow of Selma

The Shadow of Selma provides a comprehensive assessment of the 1965 civil rights campaign, the historical memory of the marches, and the continuing relevance of and challenges to the Voting Rights Act. The essays consider Selma not just as a keystone event but, much like Ferguson today, as a transformative place: a supposedly unimportant location that became the focal point of epochal historical events.

Tropic of Hopes: California, Florida, and the Selling of American Paradise, 1869-1929

Henry Knight examines and compares the way California and Florida were promoted, adding to existing historiographies on the two states while providing expert analysis of how railroad kingpins, land barons, agriculturalists, and chambers of commerce invented and popularized an image of these states as the American Paradise.
