At Manifold@UMassPress, we’ve also brought together sample chapters from the newest books in the Culture and Politics in the Cold War and Beyond series, which is edited by Scott Laderman (University of Minnesota, Duluth) and Edwin A. Martini (Western Michigan University).

If you have projects in process that seem like a good match for the series, we’d encourage you to reach out to the series editors or our editor in chief, Matt Becker ([email protected]), to arrange a meeting.


We are particularly excited to celebrate the launch of Making the Forever War: Marilyn B. Young on the Culture and Politics of American Militarism, edited by Mark Philip Bradley and Mary L. Dudziak, and featuring an afterword from Andrew Bacevich. This essential volume brings Young’s articles and essays on American war together for the first time, including never before published works.
