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.

The Naturalist


I recently had the chance to sit down with Dr. William A. Weber, retired University of Colorado botanist and author of five University Press of Colorado titles. One of those titles, the two-volume Colorado Flora (Eastern Slope and Western Slope) has been continously in print since 1953. Every time I speak with Dr. Weber, I come away humbled by his encyclopedic knowledge of not just the plants he knows so well but also almost every subject area that touches on the natural world—and many that are far afield. In an era of academic specialization, Dr. Weber is a true polymath, a modern Renaissance man.
