University of Nebraska Press Fall & Winter Catalog

Today I received the Fall and Winter 2010 University of Nebraska Press catalog. The catalog is available on the website in PDF format. Check in the left hand column for the link. The catalog isn't overrun by Civil War titles but I did notice three paperback releases that might be of interest to readers.

In September a trade paperback of Lincoln's Generals edited by Gabor Boritt will be released. ISBN 9780803234543  $17.95   Esteemed historians take on the relationship between Abraham Lincoln and generals McClellan, Hooker, Meade, Sherman, and Grant. This looks like it will be a great book.

Also in September will be Iver Bernstein's The New York City Draft Riots. ISBN 9780803234536 $21.95  Bernstein takes on the social, cultural, and political aspects of New York City (and the country for that matter) and how these led to the violent insurrection that ended up with more than 100 dead.

November will see the paperback release of The Long Pursuit penned by Roy Morris. ISBN 9780803239289 $18.95    If you are interested in the interplay between Abraham Lincoln and Stephen A. Douglas this may be your book.

Of peripheral interest to Civil War readers will be the December release of Boots and Saddles or, Life in Dakota with General Custer written by Elizabeth Custer. ISBN 9780803234567  $17.95

UNP produces a lot of nice books and if you have an interest in Native American history you will definitely want to check out the website.
