Author of O Powerful Western Star -- Poetry & Art in California, Visions & Affiliations: A California Literary Time Line, Poets & Poetry, and many other works

Jack Foley has been prominent in the San Francisco Bay Area poetry scene since the mid-1980s. The Light of Evening traces the arc of his life since his birth in New Jersey in 1940.

New England Local Government: The Case of Connecticut

Author of Haywire: A Chronology of the 2016 Presidential Contest (2017), No Holds Barred: The 2012 Connecticut Senate Race (2013), Shaping A Nation: Twenty-Five Supreme Court Cases That Changed the United States (2010), and Connecticut in Crisis: Policy Challenges and the 2018 Contest for Governor

Local government in the New England states has historically been regarded as a style of government that most closely embodies the spirit of American democracy. Although models of local government vary from one town to the next, the common thread which unites all New England towns is that the people are empowered to choose their own form of government, and in doing so control their own destiny.

Catholicism and Nation in Argentina: A Jesuit View

Author: 

Agustina González Nuñez, Associate Professor of History, University of Roehampton

While much historiography has assumed that the period from 1890 to 1930 was liberal in Argentina, Agustina González Nuñez forcefully argues in Catholicism and Nation in Argentina that the Society of Jesus – the Jesuit order of the Roman Catholic Church - proved a powerful force in shaping an alternate discourse of Argentinian nationhood.
