New Open Access Books Published

Book covers for The Odyssey for Democracy and Charlotte and UNC Charlotte: Growing Up Together

Atkins’ Digital Publishing Services has published two new books. One, Charlotte and UNC Charlotte: Growing Up Together, is a beloved history of our university written by Ken Sanford that was first published in 1996 and has now been digitized. The other book, The Odyssey for Democracy by Clark Curtis, tells the story of Mirsad Hadžkadić. The UNC Charlotte College of Computing and Informatics professor decided in 2018 to run for the Bosniak presidential council seat in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Though Hadžkadić was not victorious, he succeeded in spearheading a democratic movement, resulting in the formation of the Platform for Progress political organization.  Both books will be available as ebooks through the library’s catalog and in paperback through UNC Press.
