UNT Press publishes two books this month: 

Announcing a new series in military history from UNT Press: The American Military and Society

From the birth of the United States to today, the American military has served as more than just the sword and shield of the republic, but also as an unheralded sociological laboratory that initiated significant reforms within its confines and into the greater society that it sought to protect.  Works in The American Military and Society Series examine in a broad fashion subjects that investigate the military’s unique role as a societal influencer.  In particular, we welcome monograph submissions that grapple with the impact of the military on issues of race, gender, sexuality, religion, class, and politics, as well as environmental, economic, and cultural concerns. Those interested in publishing in the series should submit a proposal, CV, and sample chapters (if available) to the series editor, Geoffrey W. Jensen (JensenG2@erau.edu) for consideration.
