On the morning after the University of Virginia basketball team won the national championship, I was on the phone with Mark Saunders, the director of UVA Press about a book that would celebrate the incomprehensible journey the Cavaliers had just completed.
We had previously agreed to table all discussions until the game was over.
“Let’s talk tomorrow so we don’t jinx anything,” Mark said.
After the victory, Mark celebrated by leading the schools Auld Lang Syne inspired mantra, “The Good Ole Song.” It’s preserved here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXjTmSXL6Ik
He and I shared texts over the last two seasons wherever we happened to be watching. He might be in John Paul Jones arena when I was at a hockey tournament in Buffalo. Weeks of silence went by and then possession by possession critiques of the team would cascade down the screen.

For readers interested in the history of United States engagement in the Pacific, this is a good time to get caught up on the Cornell University Press backlist!
In recent months, I have signed a tide of wonderful—deeply researched, fluidly written, smartly argued—new books on U.S. foreign policy and military engagement in East Asia and Southeast Asia in the post-World War II era. New books are coming in fall 2019 and spring 2020 from Oliver Charbonneau, Sangjoon Lee, Katherine Moran, Thomas K. Robb and David James Gill, Nancy Shoemaker, and Colleen Woods. Their work will change how we look at the U.S. role as a Pacific power in the 19th and 20th centuries and so got me to thinking about trends in our historical analysis of events like World War II, Bandung Conference, and the Vietnam War. The bundle of backlist books I have selected is a wonderful mix of histories of U.S. strategy, foreign policy, civilian engagement, and military action in the Pacific. These are the books which the new wave of works if carrying forward, and so are necessary reading for everyone who follows the influence of the U.S. in the broad Pacific region.

Acquisitions editors generally bring in books one by one, looking for the smartest, best, most interesting books we can find. We see the links among them, eventually, but sometimes an outside body provides that recognition.
Each year the Association for the Study of Nationalities gives an award for the year’s outstanding book on Russia, eastern Europe, or Eurasia “in which substantial attention is paid to questions of ethnicity and/or nationalism.” Since 2011 Cornell books have won five times and received four honorable mentions. These nine titles explore nationalism and ethnicity in different ways, different locations.
