HEB's Top Ten Titles for July 2014-December 2014

As we do every six months, HEB is pleased to once again present our list of top-hit titles, this time for the second half of 2014. While most of the titles below are perennial bestsellers, a first-time entry is David W. Blight's Race and Reunion: The Civil War in American Memory (2001).

As in the previous few semesters we are observing a growing interest among our readership in African studies, and a strong ongoing interest in race and racism, nationalism and colonialism. For those interested in exploring some of these topics further, we recommend HEB's Pinterest board of titles pertaining to Race in America.
