READING LIST Note: All required readings are on reserve at Clemons Undergraduate Library. Films are likewise available for viewing in Clemons. When required books are available for purchase through the bookstores, the publisher is given. (Amazon, ABE Books, and Strand sell new and used books at a discount, and AddALL.com allows you to comparison shop, but in all cases you must leave time for delivery.) For assigned articles, a list of historical novels, and maps, consult the course website on Collab. Using maps often makes it easier to follow lectures and readings.
