I am offering two classes at UConn Hartford this spring. If you are a potential student or a student enrolled in either course, feel free to contact me if you have questions about the assigned texts. All of these books are available used, as ebooks, or for rental through retailers such as Amazon. Shop around.
History 1502- US Since 1877
Eric Foner, Give Me Liberty!: An American History (Brief Fourth Edition) (Vol. 2) ISBN: 9780393920345 [Seagull edition is ok too as long as it is a Fourth Edition, Vol. 2]
as the Foner textbook is coming out with a new edition soon, I strongly discourage you from buying a brand new copy.
Dave Eggers, Zeitoun
History 3098- Policing and Imprisonment in the US since 1877
Miroslava Chavez-Garcia, States of Delinquency: Race and Science in the Making of California’s Juvenile Justice System
Nicole Gonzalez Van Cleve, Crook County: Racism and Injustice in America’s Largest Criminal Court
as this is an upper-division course, we will also read scholarly articles and other sources available on HuskyCT.
