books for fall 2015.

If you are taking History 2219 or History 3296/3280 at Temple University Ambler Campus this fall, welcome! The books available for the course are available as ebooks or can be purchased used (often for a lower cost than renting them from the bookstore). Both classes will use a mix of books and articles; articles will be available on Blackboard by the start of the classes on August 24. Please contact me if you have any questions about the course.

History 2219, Cold War Culture in the United States

Competing with the Soviets: Science, Technology, and the State in Cold War America by Audra Wolfe

The Second Red Scare and the Unmaking of the New Deal Left by Landon Storrs

History 3296/3280, Crime and Punishment in the United States 

There have been some behind-the-scenes tech issues at Temple that led some to believe the topic for the course has been changed. Have no fear: we will be studying Crime and Punishment this fall.

Worse than Slavery: Parchman Farm and the Ordeal of Jim Crow Justice by David Oshinsky
