UNC Press Edition

Over the past few days, UNC Press (like many of our sister presses) has received an influx of requests from readers for books that provide context around the tragic events in Charlottesville. UNC Press has a longstanding commitment to publish books that examine histories of racial violence. Many any of our authors over the years have given especially deep consideration to way the Civil War era is remembered and commemorated in the South and the nation as a whole–a question once more at the center of public debate and struggle.

We hope the list of books shared here serves as a resource for all those seeking deeper understanding and sound engagement with historical evidence. The list is by no means comprehensive, and we hope you’ll check this list in the coming days as new titles are added. We also encourage readers to watch for the hashtag #ReadUP on social media, where university presses continue to highlight work that can promote fuller understanding of our past and present.

Easily and quickly request exam and desk copies online (including free digital exam copies) by visiting any of the books’ pages above. If you need assistance in choosing the right texts for your course, we’d be glad to help, contact us here.

We’re happy to offer a 40 percent discount on book purchases, and if your order totals $75, the shipping is free.  Simply enter promo code 01DAH40 at checkout to receive your discount.
