Reconstructing Russia

| Filed under: European & World History
Bacino Book Cover

Reconstructing Russia focuses on the Wilson administration’s efforts to find some way to provide economic support to Russian Siberia as a counterpoint to German economic influence. The connection between the Wilson administration’s efforts to provide economic assistance in Siberia and the Marshall Plan becomes even more significant at the close of the twentieth century as contemporary debates are waged over the issue of economic assistance to the former Soviet Union. Bacino places Wilson’s Russian policy in a new light and examines it from a government-wide perspective. He analyzes several significant issues and gives a fresh look at one of the most confusing episodes in Wilsonian foreign policy.

| Filed under: Civil War Era
Campaign Book Cover

First published in 1958, Red River Campaign examines how partisan politics, economic needs, and personal profit determined military policy and operations in Louisiana and Arkansas during the spring of 1864.
In response to the demands of Free-Soil interests in Texas and the New England textiles manufacturers’ need for cotton, Lincoln authorized an expedition to open the way to Texas. General Nathaniel Banks conducted a combined military and naval campaign up the Red River that lasted only from March 12 to May 20, 1864, but was one of the most destructive of the Civil War.

Chrisman-Campbell Cover

On February 29, 1968, the White House hosted its first—and only—fashion show. At the time, the patriotic event was lauded by the press, and many predicted it would become an annual occasion, especially since fashion had grown to become the fourth largest industry in the United States, employing 1.4 million Americans, more than 80 percent of them women. But the social and political turmoil of that particular year—from the Vietnam War, the civil rights movement, and the assassinations of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Sen. Robert F. Kennedy—cast a shadow over the festivities.

Reform and Revolution

| Filed under: Biography
Reform Book Cover

America’s antagonistic relations with the Soviet Union can be traced to the U.S. response to the Bolshevik Revolution. Within weeks of the revolution, the State Department was considering the military intervention that set the stage for future troubled relations. Raymond Robins stepped forward in 1917 voicing a minority view that the new regime was sustained by vast support, responding to the needs of workers and peasants. He and other observers believed that friendship and cooperation with Communist Russia would best serve Allied interests. At Theodore Roosevelt’s suggestion, Robins was appointed to the American Red Cross Commission to Russia in 1917, arriving in Petrograd to witness the last two months of the Provisional Government and the Bolshevik Revolution. He was then appointed first in command and took the initiative to discuss with Trotsky and Lenin the fate of American and other Allied representatives and all other key issues in the new United States-Soviet relationship.


Reforming Women’s Fashion, 1850-1920

| Filed under: Clothing & Costume
Cunningham Book Cover

During the latter half of the nineteenth and the first decade of the twentieth centuries, books, periodicals, and newspapers were rich in discussions related to women’s roles, health, beauty, and dress. Many believed that restrictive and unwieldy women’s fashions compromised health, distorted women’s true physical beauty, and curtailed the potential role of women in society. Reforming Women’s Fashion, 1850–1920 focuses on the efforts toward reforming women’s dress that took place in Europe and America during this period and the types of garments adopted by women to overcome the challenges posed by fashionable dress.


The Remarkable Case of Dorothy L. Sayers

| Filed under: Literature & Literary Criticism
Kenney Book Cover

Sayer’s three main accomplishments serve as the organizing principle of this book: first, her transformation of the modern detective story into a serious novel of social criticism and moral depth; second, her penetrating critique of the situation of modern women; and finally her compelling work as a lay theologian and interpreter of Christianity. Thus, the book proceeds not only in roughly chronological order, but also from the work that most readers know best what they know least. The author assumes some familiarity with Sayer’s fiction, but The Remarkable Case of Dorothy L. Sayers is not intended for specialists alone. Indeed, it is appropriate for the same reader that DLS had in mind when she wrote. It will appeal to those who already admire her work, and it may bring others to appreciate her as a literary figure of importance.

Since the early nineteenth century, Cleveland and the surrounding region have benefited from the emigration of European Jewry. A unique anthology of essays, short stories, and poems, A Cleveland Jewish Reader gathers for the first time rare and previously inaccessible writings about the Jewish experience in Northeast Ohio.

The editors present a variety of voices that discuss the Jewish cultural gardens, Yiddish theater, socialism in the working class and women’s role in the Garment Strike, the cigar industry and Jewish farming, the Alsbacher Document, philanthropic efforts by the Jewish Community Federation of Cleveland, and many other topics.
