A little over a year ago the hardcover version of my book The Rosewood Massacre: An Archaeology and History of Intersectional Violence was published by the University Press of Florida. Sales were sufficient to prompt the release of a paperback edition. This is great news because it lowers the price of the book from $80 to $25! Also, it means people are reading it! In fact, last I checked, it’s been referenced nearly a dozen times in peer reviewed works since it came out last year. Neat!

Along with the new edition came new reviews. Here’s a few excerpts (displayed at the Amazon page for the book).
“An ambitious project with few precedents. . . . González-Tennant argues that the underlying causes of the Rosewood Massacre can be traced to historical antagonisms of a national scale, and reflects the underlying patterns of many such events throughout American history.”―Historical Archaeology
“Contributes significantly to our understanding of the Rosewood massacre and deserves a wide readership. It meanwhile demonstrates the value of multidisciplinary approaches for studying race riots in America.”―Journal of Southern History
“González-Tennant balances a finely detailed microhistory of this tragic event with a broadly ranging exploration of social science theories about violence, race, and intersectionality.”―Public Historian
