Recent Publications from History Faculty

Volume Editor:
Grant Underwoo​d

This volume marks the beginning of the Documents series of The Joseph Smith Papers. While other series of the Papers include the large, multiple-entry documents-such as journals and the Book of Mormon manuscripts-that are not assignable to a single date, the Documents series presents in ​chronological order the core of Joseph Smith's documentary record.

Andrew L. Johns

This volume makes a significant contribution to historical knowledge and understanding in the sphere of the diplomacy of sport. The American politico-sporting scene occupies center stage, but due regard is paid to non-American topics. Moreover, the book meets the editors’ aim to provide a framework of reference for future research and publications on the interaction between sport and diplomacy.
