Winter Book Suggestions: Part 3

I just got my copy of the program for the annual meeting of the Organization of American Historians.  This year the meeting will be held on April 11-14 in San Francisco.

I will not be attending this year's meeting, but I always like to peruse the book advertisements in the back of the program to get caught up on what my fellow historians around the country are writing.

Here are some books that caught my eye.  Some of them I have discussed previously on the blog.

This year there were so many books of interest that I decided to divide my recommendations into multiple posts. Read Part 1 and Part 2.

Here goes:

Ronald Story, Jonathan Edwards and the Gospel of Love (Massachusetts)
