American history, religion and sociology: books available

By Simon Barrow
December 14, 2010

A small book collection of classic texts on C19th and C20th American history, religion and sociology is available for interested libraries, institutions or individuals.

The material is part of the remaining academic archive of a late friend. The books from the 1960s and '70s, listed below, are in good condition, though used and in a number of cases containing inscriptions. They are housed in London at present - and are available upon collection (or payment for packing and delivery). There is no other charge involved, though suggestions can be made about a donation for anyone offering such.

Other collections on various regions in Africa, new religious movements, the history of Christian mission, anthropology and related issues may also be advertised here in the near future.
