Compiled by Harold M. Forbes The following bibliography includes selected books, articles, dissertations, and theses about West Virginia's history that were published during 2008 and 2009. My intent is to assemble a listing of readily available works that provide insights into the state's past and expand the availability of documentation for the study of the heritage, culture, and lifeways of West Virginians. In addition to those listed here, additional writings on West Virginia history may be found in popular periodicals, genealogical and local history journals and books, and the increasing number of reprints of titles long out of print. A multitude of new articles and books and reprints of old ones were generated by the sesquicentennial (150th anniversary) of abolitionist John Brown's attempt to trigger an uprising against slavery. That event served as a catalyst to civil war and the end of slavery in America; thus its importance continues to stimulate historians and writers. If you are aware of any recent book or article on West Virginia's history not listed here, I would appreciate your effort in bringing it to my attention. Alvarez, Raymond. "La Familia Fernández: Recalling a Spanish Family in Clarksburg." Goldenseal 35 (Fall 2009): 19-23.
