    The Deepest Sense A Cultural History of Touch CONSTANCE CLASSEN

    Fleshes out our understanding of the past with explora- tions of lived experiences of embodiment from the middle ages to modernity. This intimate and sensuous approach to history makes it possible to foreground the tactile foundations of Western culture—the ways in which feelings shaped society.

    She delves into a range of vital issues, from the uses— and prohibitions—of touch in social interaction to the disciplining of the body by the modern state, from the changing feel of the urban landscape to the technologi- zation of touch in modernity.

    2 THE WAR OF 1812

    The War of 1812 A Forgotten Confl ict DONALD R. HICKEY Bicentennial Edition

    This comprehensive and authoritative history of the War of 1812, thoroughly revised for the 200th anniver- sary of the historic confl ict, is a myth-shattering study that will inform and entertain students, historians, and general readers alike.

    Praise for the fi rst edition:

    “A well-researched and extensively documented overview of the causes and consequences of the War of 1812. In a penetrating analysis of prewar society, the author accumulates evidence suggesting that the war was ultimately unnecessary and unpopular. . . . Highly recommended as an inclusive political, military, and social treatment of a customarily neglected war.” —American Library Association Booklist

    “Despite being forgotten and overlooked, the War of 1812 was a signifi cant milestone in the development of the United States. [Hickey] was accurate when he wrote, ‘Although looking to the past, the war was fraught with consequences for the future, and for this reason it is worth studying today.’ And there is no better place to start than with The War of 1812.”—Civil War News

    “The defi nitive study.”—Journal of American History

    480 pp. 6.125 x 9.25. 47 b & w photos, 5 maps, 2 charts. 2012. Paper 978-0-252-07837-8. $24.95 $17.47

    Winner of a Best Book Award from the American Military Institute (fi rst edition)

    Illinois in the War of 1812 GILLUM FERGUSON

    “For more than a century, there has been no book- length historical study of the War of 1812 in Illinois, but Gillum Ferguson has labored mightily to remedy that historiographical shortcoming. Massively researched and well written, Illinois in the War of 1812 is a pioneering work that will undeniably appeal to scholars, local historians, and interested readers.” —Rodney O. Davis, coeditor of The Lincoln-Douglas Debates: The Lincoln Studies Center Edition

    In this engrossing new history, published upon the war’s bicentennial, Gillum Ferguson underlines the crucial importance of the War of 1812 in the develop- ment of Illinois as a state. The history of Illinois in the War of 1812 has never before been told with so much attention to the personalities who fought it, the events that defi ned it, and its lasting consequences.

    A Secret Society History of the Civil War MARK A. LAUSE

    Analyzes how the Old World’s traditions infl uenced various underground groups and movements in America, particularly George Lippard’s Brotherhood of the Union, an attempt to replicate the political secret societies that drove the European Revolutions of 1848.

    “A fascinating and provocative study that illuminates the history of the Civil War era by probing the relation- ship between political secret societies and social radi- calism in Europe and antebellum reform and sectional crisis in the United States. This book will be a tremen- dous resource of information for scholars, and it is one of the most genuinely original works that I have ever read.”—Robert E. May, author of Manifest Destiny’s Underworld: Filibustering in Antebellum America
