Univ. of Tennessee Press Spring/Summer '10 books

Speaking of UT Press, they've redesigned their website, plus they also have their new catalog up. That's quite a Civil War line up for the first half of this year.

Also, with the issue of the first three titles, there is finally a dedicated page up for The Western Theater in the Civil War series. Its mission:
"The primary goal of the series is to publish cutting-edge scholarship on the Civil War and during Reconstruction. The series may include monographs, biographies or autobiographies, and edited volumes. Prospective candidates will draw on previously untapped sources, introduce creative perspectives and methodologies, and contribute to the ongoing debate about the place of the Western Theater in understanding the Civil War".
I've added the new links to my publisher profile page. The three inaugural releases will be:

As it did earlier for David Reed's Shiloh book, the press will also revive Henry Boynton's classic works of Civil War history. Timothy B. Smith has combined the trio into a single volume, The Battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga and the Organizations Engaged.

Finally, Robert J. Trout concludes his two-part series of ANV horse artillery reminiscences with Memoirs of the Stuart Horse Artillery Battalion: Volume 2 - Breathed’s and McGregor’s Batteries.

  1. It amazes me that so much seemingly good work continues to be done on the West. Good to see Larry Hewitt resurface (his Port Hudson book more or less stood alone).

    Thanks for these handy reports.

  2. Thanks for the list, Drew. I've heard BCM give a number of talks over the years on Hood. I can't wait for that particular book.
