June 19th marks Juneteenth in the United States, the date marking the end of African-American slavery in Texas in 1865, over two years after Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation. It offers much pride to share that on Thursday, ON JUNETEENTH author Annette Gordon-Reed was present for President Biden's historic signing of Juneteenth into law as a federal holiday. This act came the same week as Kerri Greenidge's review of the book in @NewRepublic, in which she wrote that, "It is more than a small pleasure to see that Black historians who have been engaged in deep archival research for decades continue to produce field-changing work that ought to be the center of any national debate about how Americans reckon with our racial past. In ON JUNETEENTH, Harvard historian Annette Gordon-Reed brilliantly meditates on the origin stories that we tell ourselves in an effort to avoid the nuances of history. Gordon-Reed is a legend in her field…. Among the most significant historians in the country, a remarkable analyst of the American archive whose gift for storytelling is matched only by her prolific range…. ON JUNETEENTH—part memoir, part local history, part contemplative essay on the meaning of Texas as American myth—reveals a historian whose scholarship will never be limited... she is more broadly concerned with the very nature of history itself…. Offer[ing] us a declaration of history as nuance. ON JUNETEENTH is a text that has the power to alter its field, with a vigorous assertion of the importance of historical context in our current political moment." To all who have made this history and will continue to make it in the years ahead, we join you in celebration on this momentous day. (Photo: @featherboundbooks)

JESUS AND JOHN WAYNE is a sweeping, revisionist history of the last seventy-five years of white evangelicalism, revealing how evangelicals have worked to replace the Jesus of the Gospels with an idol of rugged masculinity and Christian nationalism―or in the words of one modern chaplain, with “a spiritual badass.”

As acclaimed scholar Kristin Du Mez explains, the key to understanding this transformation is to recognize the centrality of popular culture in contemporary American evangelicalism. Many of today’s evangelicals might not be theologically astute, but they know their VeggieTales, they’ve read John Eldredge’s "Wild at Heart", and they learned about purity before they learned about sex―and they have a silver ring to prove it. Evangelical books, films, music, clothing, and merchandise shape the beliefs of millions. And evangelical culture is teeming with muscular heroes―mythical warriors and rugged soldiers, men like Oliver North, Ronald Reagan, Mel Gibson, and the Duck Dynasty clan, who assert white masculine power in defense of “Christian America.” Chief among these evangelical legends is John Wayne, an icon of a lost time when men were uncowed by political correctness, unafraid to tell it like it was, and did what needed to be done.

Challenging the commonly held assumption that the “moral majority” backed Donald Trump in 2016 and 2020 for purely pragmatic reasons, Du Mez reveals that Trump in fact represented the fulfillment, rather than the betrayal, of white evangelicals’ most deeply held values: patriarchy, authoritarian rule, aggressive foreign policy, fear of Islam, ambivalence toward #MeToo, and opposition to Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ community. A much-needed reexamination of perhaps the most influential subculture in this country, "Jesus and John Wayne" shows that, far from adhering to biblical principles, modern white evangelicals have remade their faith, with enduring consequences for all Americans.

Happy #PubDay to Sam Apple, author of “Ravenous: Otto Warburg, the N***s, and the Search for the Cancer-Diet Connection”, available wherever books are sold! Apple presents an extraordinary biography of Otto Warburg, the Nazi-era Jewish homosexual and Nobel Prize-winning scientific genius who collided with Hi**er and other Third Reich leaders while discovering how cancer cells eat―and what it means for how we should. Remarkably, Warburg’s theory has now undergone a resurgence in our own time, as scientists have begun to investigate the dangers of sugar and the link between obesity and cancer, finding that the way we eat can influence how cancer cells take up nutrients and grow. Publishers Weekly calls RAVENOUS “excellent... a bona fide page-turner”, while Philip Lopate deems it "a model for how to do contemporary nonfiction” and bestselling physician Jason Fung, MD writes that “Ravenous will change the way you think about cancer and how to prevent it.”

05/18/2021

It's #PubDay for Elizabeth Hinton's AMERICA ON FIRE: THE UNTOLD HISTORY OF POLICE VIOLENCE AND BLACK REBELLION SINCE THE 1960s, called “[A] groundbreaking, deeply researched and profoundly heart-rending account of the origins of our national crisis of police violence against Black America" by Peniel Joseph in today's review @nytbooks. "America on Fire is more than a brilliant guided tour through our nation’s morally ruinous past," writes Joseph. "It reveals the deep roots of the current movement to reject a system of law enforcement that defines as the problem the very people who continue to seek to liberate themselves from racial oppression. In undertaking this work, Hinton achieves something rare. She deploys scholarly erudition in the service of policy transformation, propelled by Black voices whose hitherto untold stories of protest add much-needed sustenance to America’s collective imagination.” AMERICA ON FIRE is available now wherever books are sold!

Historian David Blight once wrote of Annette Gordon-Reed's work that, “If this country has a modern Shakespeare looking for material, Gordon-Reed has provided it.” In ON JUNETEENTH, on sale today wherever books are sold, Gordon-Reed offers her most personal work yet, weaving together American history, family chronicle, and memoir into a concise account of her native Texas, and how African-Americans have played an integral role in the state's story. As our country verges on recognizing June 19 as a national holiday, ON JUNETEENTH is both an essential account and a stark reminder that the fight for equality is exigent and ongoing.

04/27/2021

Today marks the publication of Nicole Eustace's COVERED WITH NIGHT: A STORY OF MURDER AND INDIGENOUS JUSTICE IN EARLY AMERICA, an immersive tale of the killing of a Native American man and its far-reaching implications for the definition of justice from early America to today.

On the eve of a major treaty conference between Iroquois leaders and European colonists in the distant summer of 1722, two white fur traders attacked an Indigenous hunter and left him for dead near Conestoga, Pennsylvania. Though virtually forgotten today, this act of brutality set into motion a remarkable series of criminal investigations and cross-cultural negotiations that challenged the definition of justice in early America.

In COVERED WITH NIGHT, leading historian Nicole Eustace reconstructs the crime and its aftermath, bringing us into the overlapping worlds of white colonists and Indigenous peoples in this formative period. As she shows, the murder of the Indigenous man set the entire mid-Atlantic on edge, with many believing war was imminent. Frantic efforts to resolve the case ignited a dramatic, far-reaching debate between Native American forms of justice—centered on community, forgiveness, and reparations—and an ideology of harsh reprisal, unique to the colonies and based on British law, which called for the killers’ swift ex*****on.

In charting the far-reaching ramifications of the murder, COVERED WITH NIGHT—a phrase from Iroquois mourning practices—overturns persistent assumptions about “civilized” Europeans and “savage” Native Americans. In truth, Eustace reveals, the Iroquois—the Six Nations of the Haudenosaunee, as they are known today—saw the killing as an opportunity to forge stronger bonds with the colonists. They argued for restorative justice and for reconciliation between the two sides, even as they mourned the deceased.

An absorbing chronicle built around an extraordinary group of characters—from the slain man’s resilient widow to the Indigenous diplomat known as “Captain Civility” to the scheming governor of Pennsylvania—COVERED WITH NIGHT transforms a single event into an unforgettable portrait of early America.
