Canal Fever

Canal Book Cover

Combining original essays based on the past, present, and future of the Ohio & Erie Canal, Canal Fever showcases the research and writing of the best and most knowledgeable canal historians, archaeologists, and enthusiasts. Each contributor brings his or her expertise to tell the canal’s story in three parts: the canal era—the creation of the canal and its importance to Ohio’s early growth; the canal’s decline—the decades when the canal was merely a ditch and path in backyards all over northeast Ohio; and finally the rediscovery of this old transportation system and its transformation into a popular recreational resource, the Ohio & Erie Canalway.

Caution Book Cover

Using a wide array of primary materials from both sides of the Atlantic, Myers traces the sources of potential Anglo-American wartime turmoil as well as the various reasons both sides had for avoiding war. And while he does note the disagreement between Washington and London, he convincingly demonstrates that transatlantic discord was ultimately minor and neither side seriously considered war against the other.

 


Cautious Rebel

| Filed under: Biography, Books, Explore Women's History, Women’s Studies
Apple Book Cover

Women’s studies has been inclined, unintentionally, to create a new elite. Historians have preferred to emphasize progress, particularly when created by women themselves, and biographers have chosen strong, successful women. But the vast majority of women were not activists. Susan Clay Sawitzky’s life shows that tradition and modernity can and did exist simultaneously, creating tremendous complexity in the lives of individuals. Her experiences suggest that compromise may result as much from fatigue as from lack of desire or courage.

Censorship of Political Caricature in Nineteenth-Century France

| Filed under: History
Goldstein Book Cover

Censorship of Political Caricature in Nineteenth-Century France is a comprehensive account of the struggle over freedom of caricature in France during the period between 1815 and 1914. Profusely illustrated with caricatures originally published during the nineteenth century, the book traces the attempts of French authorities to control opposition political drawings and the attempts of caricaturists to evade restrictions on their craft. Although prior censorship of the printed word in France was abolished in 1822, censorship of caricature was enforced almost continuously until 1881, and even thereafter caricaturists were periodically prosecuted after publication of what were considered seditious drawings.
