A Civilised Savagery, Britain and the New Slaveries in Africa, 1884-1926
In the two decades before the First World War, Great Britain witnessed the largest revival of anti-slavery protest since the legendary age of emancipation in the mid-nineteenth century. The latter-day abolitionists focused on the so-called “new slaveries” of European imperialism in the Congo Free State, South Africa and Portuguese West Africa. A Civilised Savagery recounts the history of human rights protests in the context of European imperialism, illustrating the historical bridge between the Victorian era of empire and abolition and the twentieth–century era of humanitarian politics and human rights.

The Clinton Comets: An EHL Dynasty
Described as “a comprehensive history of the glory years of the Clinton Comets,” it is the story of Clinton, New York’s own professional hockey team during the era (1954-73) when “old-time hockey” was at its best.

Tennis Bibliography 1874-2000
