America in the Nineteenth Century (ANC)

University of Pennsylvania Press

Series Editors: Brian DeLay, Steven Hahn, & Amy Dru Stanley

American in the Nineteenth Century proposes a rigorous rethinking of this most formative period in U.S. history. Books in the series will be wide-ranging and eclectic, with an interest in politics at all levels, culture and capitalism, race and slavery, law, gender, the environment, and regional and transnational history. The series aims to expand the scope of nineteenth-century historiography by bringing classic questions into dialogue with innovative perspectives, approaches, and methodologies.

The United States in the World

Cornell University Press

Series Editors: Benjamin A. Coates, Emily Conroy-Krutz, Paul A. Kramer, & Judy Tzu-Chun Wu

Taken together, books in this series highlight the operation, contestation, and transformation of US power across time and space. They investigate the imperial, diplomatic, international, and transnational histories of social movements, organizations, and states. The works explore people, ideas, processes, and events that cross national boundaries, from the antebellum period through the present.

Politics & Culture in Modern America (POC)

University of Pennsylvania Press

Series Editors: Keisha N. Blain, Margot Canaday, Matthew Lassiter, Stephen Pitti, & Thomas J. Sugrue

Books in the series examine political and social change in the broadest dimensions from 1865 to the present, including ideas about the ways people have sought and wielded power in the public sphere and the language and institutions of politics at all levels. The series is motivated by a desire to encourage synthetic perspectives.
