Geographies of Justice and Social Transformation is devoted to books that engage the importance of space for questions of social and political change. This focus necessarily covers a broad range of subject matter, including international political economy, urban studies, gender, race, sexuality, and poverty and inequality. While the series is interdisciplinary, its primary emphasis is on critical human geography.
Books published in the series are designed to inform both intellectuals of broad stripes and those engaged in political processes of different kinds, from policy makers to grassroots activists. The series editors are interested in producing books that live on in academic offices and classrooms around the world, but also take on life in political chambers, organizing halls, and the streets where both space and politics are produced.

Critical writings by contemporary poets that illuminate the life of poetry not only on the page but in the imaginations, hearts, and spirits of today's working poets. Poet-critics, including Yeats, Pound, Eliot, Stevens, and Auden, have produced some of the most eminent and engaged writing on the genre. A distinguishing characteristic of such writing is that poets are generally conducting, as Eliot says, "a private poetry workshop with the poets they most admire.
The series aims to include both intellectually ambitious and practically brilliant work by poets on their art and craft, work that helps readers to apprehend the mystery of the art of poetry as much as it helps writers to understand the mechanics of the craft. Books in the series might explore the elements of prosody, investigage the technical components of a particular poetic genius, communicate a personal ars poetica , or attempt to express the alchemy that makes poetry poetry, or as Donald Hall put it, "the unsayable said.

Colors of Africa James Kilgo With illustrations by the author. Early American Places focuses on the history of North America from contact to the Mexican War, locating historical developments in the specific places where they occurred and were contested. Though these developments often involved far-flung parts of the world, they were experienced in particular communities—the local places where people lived, worked, and made sense of their changing worlds.
By restricting its focus to smaller geographic scales, but stressing that towns, colonies, and regions were part of much larger networks, Early American Places will combine up-to-date scholarly sophistication with an emphasis on local particularities and trajectories. Books in the series will be exclusively revised dissertations. Georgia will focus on the southeastern colonies, the plantation economies of the Caribbean, and the Spanish borderlands. The rationale for the collaboration in publication is sound, as is the plan for the management of the series as a whole.

Though the American film business initially took root and flourished in the industrialized northeast and the west coast, filmmakers in this new medium soon became preoccupied with cultural questions and themes that resonated with the South.

In the s, as television became increasingly prominent, CBS created a series of popular sitcoms The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction among them with distinctly southern orientation. Whether produced for theatrical production or as television series, then, the moving image has shaped and been shaped by the South and its inhabitants.

It recognizes that there are a great many diverse voices from the Civil War era that need to be heard. Soldiers, civilians on the home front, slaves, political officials, government bureaucrats, newspaper correspondents, diplomats, and foreign observers all have a particular insight onto that great conflict and deserve to have a forum to have their stories told. This series will also include a digital component to provide an enhanced experience for each volume to make them more appealing for classroom adoption. There is a strong market for these types of books and very few presses have dedicated series to these types of editions.
Rather, many edited volumes are shoe-horned into other series, where they are at best ill-fitting and there is no consistent quality or editorial policy regarding them. This series has a dedicated series editor who has a clear editorial policy—each book will have introductions that place the letters in context, clear editorial methods, comprehensive annotations, full bibliographies, and intuitive indexes—which will provide both consistency and high quality and set a level of excellence that scholars and general readers will come to expect.
