  3. The Enchanted Amazon Rain Forest: Stories From a Vanishing World by Nigel J. H. Smith
  4. Gods of the City: Religion and the American Urban Landscape by Robert A. Orsi
  5. Marks of the Beast: The Left Behind Novels and the Struggle for Evangelical Identity by Glenn Shuck
  6. Urban Villages and the Making of Communities by Peter Neal
  7. Please Don't Wish Me a Merry Christmas: A Critical History of the Separation of Church and State by Stephen M. Feldman
  8. Warriors Into Workers: The Civil War and the Formation of Urban-industrial Society in a Northern City by Russell L. Johnson
  9. Word Freak: Heartbreak, Triumph, Genius, and Obsession in the World of Competitive Scrabble Players by Stefan Fatsis
  10. Mr. Polk's Army: The American Military Experience in the Mexican War by Richard Bruce Winders
