The University Press of Colorado is accepting manuscripts for publication in our Global Colonialism series, a collection of nonfiction books that investigate the effects of colonialism globally on both colonizers and the colonized. Books in the series will be selected from across a variety of fields, including archaeology, anthropology, ethnohistory, and history.
Conquest and colonization have characterized the human experience from the time of the emergence of state-level societies. We invite global case studies, from the earliest known examples in antiquity to the current day, as well as more synthetic works that study the ties between areas connected by colonialism. Books in this series should study colonial processes at a local level, while also examining how these processes connect to larger spheres and themes.
All proposals for the this series should follow the press submission guidelines, and submission will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff, the series editors and/or editorial board, as well as outside experts.

In a recent talk at a library in Longmont, Colorado, author James Whiteside recalled how a journey on his Harley Davidson to a family reunion in British Columbia gave him the idea for a different way to pen a history book. Whiteside, a retired University of Colorado history professor, recalled that getting out of a car and traveling by two wheels showed him culture and history that otherwise might have gone unrecorded if he had approached this project in the traditional way history books take shape—that is, through painstaking archival research.
A native of the American West, James Whiteside is a retired history professor living in Denver. He is the author of two previous books on the West, was awarded the Colorado Historical Society's Leroy R. Hafen Award (1985) and the Colorado Endowment for the Humanities Publication Prize (1999), and was a finalist for the Colorado Book Award (2000).
