To Moscow, Not Mecca: The Soviet Campaign Against Islam in Central Asia, 1917-1941
The clash between Communism and Islam in the Soviet Union pitted two socio-political systems against one another, each proclaiming ultimate truth. Shoshana Keller, associate professor of history, examines the first decades of the struggle in Central Asia (1917-1941), where an ancient religious tradition faced an aggressive form of secular modernity. The Soviets attempted to break down Muslim culture and remold it on Marxist-Leninist lines. Despite Stalin's totalitarian aims, the Soviet regime in Central Asia was often weak even into the 1930s, and by 1941 the opposing systems had reached a standoff. More ...

The Art of Kiltmaking
Kiltmaking methods have remained essentially the same for over a century.

Barbara Tewksbury, professor of geology and kiltmaker, has teamed up with legendary kiltmaker Elsie Stuehmeyer to create a book that teachers the traditional kiltmaking methods that Elsie learned 50 years ago as an apprentice and kiltmaker with the renowned firm Thomas Gordon's of Glasglow.

The Other American: The Life of Michael Harrington
Most Americans first heard of Michael Harrington with the publication of The Other America, his seminal book on American poverty. Maurice Isserman, professor of history, expertly tracks Harrington's beginnings in the Catholic Worker movement, his abandonment of his once deeply-held Catholicism, his life in 1950s Greenwich Village, and his evolution as a thinker. Isserman explains why Harrington, who more than any other single individual seemed perfectly positioned to play the role of adult mentor to the New Left in the 1960s, instead fell into disfavor with young campus activists, and lost the opportunity of a lifetime to make his democratic Socialist perspective a relevant force in American politics. More ...
America Divided: The Civil War of the 1960s

More ...
