The Florida History and Culture Series

Edited by Raymond Arsenault and Gary R. Mormino

Series Description:

During the past half-century, the expanding population and increased national and international visibility of Florida have sparked a great deal of popular interest in the state's past, present, and projected future. But the literature on Florida's distinctive heritage and character has not kept pace with the state's enhanced status. This series is designed to remedy that situation by providing an accessible and attractive format for the publication of Florida-related books, including scholarly books, works of synthesis, carefully selected works of popular history, memoirs, and anthologies. While the series will feature books of historical interest, the editors encourage authors researching Florida's environment, politics, literature, and popular or material culture to submit projects for consideration.

There are 54 books in this series.

Please note that while you may order forthcoming books at any time, they will not be available for shipment until shortly before publication date
