The Field of Blood
Featured Book

This month we are featuring the newest book written by Yale University professor, Joanne B. Freeman, titled,The Field of Blood. The timing of the release of this book couldn't be more perfect as it tells us of a time in government when, not unlike today, there was a lot of turnoil in Congress and actual fights broke out  while in session. Freeman talks about the careers of John Quincy Adams and Henry Clay among others. "Freeman’s dramatic accounts of brawls and thrashings tell a larger story of how fisticuffs and journalism, and the powerful emotions they elicited, raised tensions between North and South and led toward war." (from the publisher)

History department chair, Pell dorm parent, and advisor to Honor Committee, Emily Pressman highly recommends our current featured book and the author just happens to be one of Emily's favorite teachers.
