  • Reconstruction in Georgia: Economic, Social, Political, 1865-1872
    By author: C. Mildred Thompson   Introduction by: William Harris Bragg
    Fair-minded and comprehensive, C. Mildred Thompson's RECONSTRUCTION IN GEORGIA (1915) has long been considered among the best of the state studies to emerge from Columbia University's Dunning School. This coterie of graduate students in Professor William A. Dunning's famed Reconstruction seminar produced studies of Reconstruction in their native states. Widely admired and appreciatively reviewed in their time, they were increasingly pilloried by revisionist scholars after mid-century. This new edition reintroduces Thompson's classic to new readers as the Reconstruction Sesquicentennial gets underway. It corrects the major flaw of the original by including a full index, and also offers a detailed biographical sketch of the author.
  • Startled at the Big Sound: Essays Personal, Literary, and Cultural
    By author: Stephen Corey
    STARTLED AT THE BIG SOUND: ESSAYS PERSONAL, LITERARY, AND CULTURAL is the first prose collection by Stephen Corey, a widely published poet (with ten collections in all) and one of the country's most highly regarded literary editors, who cofounded The Devil's Millhopper in 1977 and has worked with The Georgia Review since 1983. These essays, written across three decades, variously describe, analyze, and meditate upon his concurrent lives as family member, publishing writer, editor for a major literary journal, and cultural-political observer of the broader world within which he has lived while experiencing his smaller realms.
  • A Second Blooming: Becoming the Women We are Meant to Be
    Edited by: Susan Cushman   Foreword by: Anne Lamott
    A SECOND BLOOMING is a collection of essays by twenty-one authors who are emerging from the chrysalis they built for their younger selves and transforming into the women they are meant to be. They are not all elders, but all have embraced the second half of their lives with a generative spirit. These women of all ages have made it over a wall to find their true selves. As Agatha Christie says of the second blooming, ".a whole new life has opened before you.. It is as if a fresh sap of ideas and thoughts was rising in you."
