April 27, 2023: Recent Scholarly Books: Three More From Me

[Writing about Kidada Williams’ new book a couple weeks back reminded me that it’s been too long since I’ve focused a series on new scholarship. So this week I’ll highlight a handful of great recent books—add your nominations for a crowd-sourced Friday post (ahead of the monthly recap on the weekend), please!]

One of the perks of becoming a slightly well-known public scholar is that I get books sent my way to review. I don’t always have an opportunity to do so, but I always appreciate it, and will try to highlight them one way or another when I can. To that end, here (briefly) are three I’ve received over the last year or so that are well worth getting your hands on (the third is a novel, but you know we cover all genres here on AmericanStudier!):

1)      Mark Arsenault’s The Imposter’s War: The Press, Propaganda, and the Newsman Who Battled for the Minds of America (2022)

2)      Bill Shaffer’s The Scandalous Hamiltons: A Gilded Age Grifter, a Founding Father’s Disgraced Descendant, and a Trial at the Dawn of Tabloid Journalism (2022)

3)      Ciahnan Darrell, Blood at the Root (2021)

Crowd-sourced post tomorrow,


PS. So one more time: what do you think? Other scholarly books or work you’d highlight?

PPS. For a lot more—I mean a lot more—great recent books, check out that section of all my #ScholarSunday threads!
