Just an update on what’s going on here at Bull Runnings. Despite an increased “real job” work load, I’ve got a few things going. I’ve sent out the first round of questions for four author interviews. The questions were fairly broad, so I think it will take a little while for the subject’s to get back to me. But when they do, I’ll have nice previews of three very important books and one quarterly publication.
- Victoria Bynum and The Long Shadow of the Civil War, from UNC Press.
- Dr. Thomas Clemens and The Maryland Campaign of September, 1862: Volume I South Mountain.
- Dr. Lesley Gordon, the new editor of Civil War History.
- Larry Tagg and The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln.
Bynum’s book continues and expands on her work on the definitive history of The Free State of Jones. Clemens’s and Tagg’s books are perhaps the most important releases of 2009 and 2010. And Lesley Gordon has some interesting plans for the long running academic journal.
