REVIEWS

The Spring 2015 issue of Legacies: A History Journal for Dallas and North Central Texas, reviewed Robert Fairbanks' The War on Slums in the Southwest
  • The War on Slums in the Southwest The review read, "[The book] solidifies Fairbanks' reputation: no one knows more about the fraught connections between housing policy and urban development at the local state and federal levels....a brilliant book."

Serial Fu Manchu, by Ruth Meyer, was reviewed in the May 2015 issue of Pacific Historical Review
  • Serial Fu Manchu The review read, "Meyer explores the pervasiveness of the Fu Manchu figure in twentieth-century American popular culture.... Serial Fu Manchu points to the importance of serialization in American popular culture and the common practice of creating and repackaging characters such as Fu Manchu within it. This practice reinforced Asian and Asian American stereotypes and affirmed American imperialist and nativist attitudes and policies in the twentieth century."
