Updated with over 200 new illustrations as well as current plant names and taxonomies, this volume is an indispensable identification guide to nearly 1,400 species of plants, both common and rare, found in Florida and neighboring coastal states.
Between the mid-nineteenth and mid-twentieth centuries, an influx of Europeans, Asians, and Arabic speakers indelibly changed the face of Latin America. While many studies of this period focus on why the immigrants came to the region, this volume addresses how the newcomers helped construct national identities in the Caribbean, Mexico, Argentina, and Brazil.

In this groundbreaking collection of essays, anarchism in Latin America becomes much more than a prelude to populist and socialist movements. The contributors illustrate a much more vast, differentiated, and active anarchist presence in the region that evolved on simultaneous--transnational, national, regional, and local--fronts.

Eric Walrond is one of the great underexamined figures of the Harlem Renaissance and the Caribbean diaspora. Compiling Walrond’s European journalism and later fiction, as well as the pieces he wrote during the 1950s at Roundway Hospital in Wiltshire, England, where he was a voluntary patient, this collection at last fills in the biographical gaps in Walrond’s life. It provides insights into the contours of his later work and the cultural climates in which he functioned between 1928 and his death in 1966.
