Hot Off The Press
  • Tensions in the American Dream Rhetoric, Reverie, or Reality
    Melanie E. L. Bush and Roderick D. Bush

    "Tensions in the American Dream breaks new ground as it deals with a unique contemporary dilemma in the American experience: the contradiction between U.S. imperialism and traditional American ideology of liberation. The topic is timely, and the authors' arguments are strong and clear. This study, with its detailed critical analysis, is a major advancement in the field."—Walter T. Howard, Professor of American History at Bloomsburg University in northeastern Pennsylvania and the author of We Shall Be Free! Black Communist Protests in Seven Voices

  • Bullying The Social Destruction of Self
    Laura Martocci

    "A very useful and up-to-date discussion of the social-emotional origins of bullying."—Thomas Scheff, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Santa Barbara

  • Dancing the Fairy Tale Producing and Performing The Sleeping Beauty
    Laura Katz Rizzo

    "Dancing the Fairy Tale offers a new historical perspective on the development of the art of ballet and the pivotal roles women have played as performing artists, directors, and producers. Using The Sleeping Beauty as her vehicle, Laura Katz Rizzo debunks the prevailing historical narrative that ballet's evolution has been linear and dominated by male choreographers and directors, effectively arguing that the ballerina is an integral part of the creative process. Well written and extensively researched, Dancing the Fairy Tale will be a welcome addition to any balletomane's library and an excellent text for courses in dance criticism, dance history, and women's studies."—Rory Foster, Professor Emeritus at DePaul University and author of Ballet Pedagogy: The Art of Teaching

  • Senior Power or Senior Peril Aged Communities and American Society in the Twenty-First Century
    Brittany H. Bramlett

    "Social scientists are just beginning to scratch the surface of the role that social context plays in conditioning political behavior. In Senior Power or Senior Peril, Bramlett gives a convincing account of the social context of one of the most active and participatory subgroups in American society. This refreshingly thoughtful and exceptionally well-written treatment of age from a contextual perspective uses appropriate data and methods to test an interesting question. Senior Power or Senior Peril is an excellent book that makes an important contribution to the literature."—Joshua Dyck, Associate Professor of Political Science and Co-director of the Center for Public Opinion at the University of Massachusetts, Lowell

  • Movements in Times of Democratic Transition
    edited by Bert Klandermans and Cornelis van Stralen

    "The editors have assembled an impressive set of internationally known scholars of social movements to address the central problems of transitions from authoritarian regimes. The geographical scope of the collection is extraordinary, and the book's unusually high level of coherence lends important value to the individual papers. Movements in Times of Democratic Transition is a timely book, and its many analyses provide a broad and deep set of theoretical tools for assessing transitions. I do not know of another such comprehensive treatment of the potential trajectories of social movement actors than these collected essays."—John D. McCarthy, Distinguished Professor of Sociology at the Pennsylvania State University
