What is a face and how does it relate to personhood? Approaching Facial Difference: Past and Present offers an interdisciplinary exploration of the many ways in which faces have been represented in the past and present, focusing on the issue of facial difference and disfigurement read in the light of shifting ideas of beauty and ugliness. Faces are central to all human social interactions, yet their study has been much overlooked by disability scholars and historians of medicine alike. By examining the main linguistic, visual and material approaches to the face from antiquity to contemporary times, contributors place facial diversity at the heart of our historical and cultural narratives. This cutting-edge collection of essays will be an invaluable resource for humanities scholars working across history, literature and visual culture, as well as modern practitioners in education and psychology.

In 1415, two noble Kentish families, the Wallers and the Hollands, were united by the courage of their sons in triumphant battle against the French at Agincourt. Five hundred years later, their descendants found themselves fighting shoulder-to-shoulder in France once again, this time united with the French against a new enemy in the First World War. Edward Tovey has built on centuries of history to weave a romantic and moving story of peace and war, love and courage, set against the backdrop of northern France and the battlefields of the Somme. Carefully researched and imaginatively written, The Five Hundred Year War tells the story of a brave young English officer who is determined to serve his country on the front line, and the conflict of loyalties he faces when he falls for a stunningly beautiful French girl.

G.A. Henry defended a slave in court, but years later he fought for the Confederacy. The question is why? Continuing the creative nonfiction narrative she began in her first book, All Bones Be White, Judith Shearer--whose family owned slaves--teams up with Derek Boyd Hankerson--some of whose family were slaves--to reveal Henry’s motivations in the second part of an action-packed trilogy. In the book, you’ll learn why some blacks fought for the South during the Civil War, how DNA testing is helping uncover new information about the past, and the black experience in the Southern states leading up to our nation’s deadliest war. More importantly, you’ll find out what happened to Cassy, the Kentucky slave who was put on trial for allegedly killing a white woman. Henry did his best to save her life, but what happened would change the course of his life. Delve into an important story that’s been forgotten for too long, and gain a clearer picture of what the South was like for blacks before and during the nation’s split with Belonging: The Civil War’s South We Never Knew.

“[Martí] added a social agenda to the historic program of national liberation and instantly converted a movement devoted to the establishment of a new nation into a force dedicated to shaping a new society. Martí transformed rebellion into revolution. . . . Like a master weaver, Martí pulled together all the separate threads of Cuban discontent—social, economic, political, racial, historical—and wove them into a radical movement of enormous force.”—Louis A. Pérez Jr, author of José Martí in the United States “Oh Cuba! . . . the blood of Martí was not yours alone; it belonged to an entire race, to an entire continent; it belonged to the powerful youth who have lost probably the best of teachers; he belonged to the future!”—Rubén Darío This new edition of an elegant anthology features bilingual poetry, a revised translation, and several new pieces. It presents the full breadth of José Martí’s work: his political essays and writings on culture, his letters, and his poetry. Readers will discover a literary genius and an insightful political commentator on troubled US-Latin America relations.

Although World War II began as a war in Europe, many in the United States, foreseeing the inevitable, began to prepare for war, putting no faith in the Neutrality Act. Preparations for war, essentially ending the Great Depression, affected the entire country, with Virginia particularly playing a major role. More than one million service men and women came to Virginia. The sheer scope of the military development in Virginia of the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force, providing training bases and support facilities, underscores the national resolve to be prepared. The book includes the Civil Air Patrol, wartime industry, POW camps, U-boat attacks, the Beach Patrol and other Virginia-related topics.
