The University Press of Colorado is accepting manuscripts for publication in our Global Colonialism series, a collection of nonfiction books that investigate the effects of colonialism globally on both colonizers and the colonized. Books in the series will be selected from across a variety of fields, including archaeology, anthropology, ethnohistory, and history.

Conquest and colonization have characterized the human experience from the time of the emergence of state-level societies. We invite global case studies, from the earliest known examples in antiquity to the current day, as well as more synthetic works that study the ties between areas connected by colonialism. Books in this series should study colonial processes at a local level, while also examining how these processes connect to larger spheres and themes.

All proposals for the this series should follow the press submission guidelines, and submission will be evaluated by the press acquisitions staff, the series editors and/or editorial board, as well as outside experts.

Bruce Kiskaddon

Bruce Kiskaddon (1878–1950) was born in Pennsylvania, but by his early teens had moved to Trinidad, Colorado. As a cowboy on a succession of southwestern ranches, he became especially adept at working with horses. Following a serious injury in 1906, his work began to include city employment, most often as a bellhop. Until 1924 he traveled and worked widely, both indoors and out, including two years as a drover in Australia before the war and two years in Europe with the United States Army as a mule skinner during World War I. He began to write poetry around 1915 and published his first collection of poems, Rhymes of the Ranges, when he moved permanently to the Los Angeles area in 1924. He worked at hotels and wrote for the rest of his life, producing over 450 poems and numerous prose pieces and publishing three more collections of his poetry.
