Hot Off The Press
  • Greening Africana Studies Linking Environmental Studies with Transforming Black Experiences
    Rubin Patterson

    "Greening Africana Studies is an innovative and creative book emphasizing the need to successfully integrate analyses of environmental issues that continue to impact the lives of people of African descent into the academic literature published by Africana scholars. Patterson's book, which seeks to situate the issue of environmental studies within the much broader discussions, trajectories, and realities that are the primary focus of the discipline of black studies, includes useful public policy recommendations that can be implemented to improve conditions in minority communities. This is an important work written at a critical time in the historical development and survival of the African American community."—Bessie House-Soremekun, Director of Africana Studies and Professor of Political Science and Africana Studies, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

  • Upon the Ruins of Liberty Slavery, the President's House at Independence National Historical Park, and Public Memory
    Roger C. Aden

    "Upon the Ruins of Liberty is an eye-opening book that tells the untold story of President George Washington's house and the slaves he kept there. Well-written, illuminating, and provocative, it will cause us to reconsider the history we've all been taught—this is a work of importance." —Elijah Anderson, Yale University, author of The Cosmopolitan Canopy and Code of the Street

  • Reimagining Courts A Design for the Twenty-First Century
    Victor E. Flango and Thomas M. Clarke

  • Navigating Gendered Terrain Stereotypes and Strategy in Political Campaigns
    Kelly Dittmar

    "Scholars and practitioners alike still have much to learn about the role of gender in political campaigns and elections. In Navigating Gendered Terrain, Dittmar provides a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of how gender-based considerations are managed in electoral settings. Her empirical analysis and interviews provide insight on gender in both election outcomes and representation. Navigating Gendered Terrain makes a valuable contribution to the literature on this important topic." —Costas Panagopoulos, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for Electoral Politics and the Master's Program in Elections and Campaign Management at Fordham University, and editor of Public Financing in American Elections
