Race, Leisure, and the Politics of Segregation at the New Jersey Shore, 1865-1920 DAVID E. GOLDBERG “Breaking away from the usual debates concerning post-Civil War America, David E. Goldberg explores race relations on the Jersey Shore in ways that should attract the attention not only of scholars of segregation but also of consumerism, leisure, and African American life in the North. There are good stories here ranging from the founding of Asbury Park to the lives of African American waiters as well as challenging ideas that stretch beyond the old narratives concerning the rise of Jim Crow in Northern states.” —Paul A.

E M P I R E S TAT E E D I T I O N S When Ivory Towers Were Black

A Story about Race in America’s Cities and Universities SHARON EGRETTA SUTTON Foreword by James Stewart Polshek When Ivory Towers Were Black tells the story of how an unparalleled cohort of ethnic minority students earned degrees from a world-class university. It takes place in New York City at Columbia University’s School of Architecture and spans a decade of institutional evolution that mirrored the emergence and denouement of the Black Power movement. Chronicling a surprisingly little-known era in U.S. educational, architectural, and urban history, the book traces an evolutionary arc that begins with an unsettling effort to end Columbia’s exercise of authoritarian power on campus and in the community and ends with an equally unsettling return to the status quo. 280 PAGES, 25 B/W ILLUSTRATIONS 978-0-8232-7612-7 PAPER, $35.00, £29.99 978-0-8232-7611-0 CLOTH, $125.00, £108.00 SI MULTANEO US EL ECT RO N I C E D I T I O N AVA I L A BL E

Paul Hanly Furfey: Priest, Scientist, Social Reformer NICHOLAS K. RADEMACHER

Nicholas Rademacher’s book is meticulously researched and clearly written, shedding new light on Monsignor Paul Hanly Furfey’s life by drawing on Furfey’s copious published material and substantial archival deposit. Paul Hanly Furfey (1896–1992) is one of U.S. Catholicism’s greatest champions of peace and social justice. He and his colleagues at The Catholic University of America offered a revolutionary view of the university as a center for social transformation, not only in training students to be agents for social change but also in establishing structures which would empower and transform the communities that surrounded the university. Leaving behind an important legacy for Catholic sociology, Furfey demonstrated how to balance liberal, radical, and revolutionary social thought and practice to elicit new approaches to social reform. 352 PAGES 978-0-8232-7677-6 PAPER, $35.00, £29.99 978-0-8232-7676-9 CLOTH, $125.00, £108.00 SI MULTANEO US ELECTRO NI C E D I T I O N AVA I L A BL E

“Many of us in the field of political theology are poorer for the lack of conversation most of us experience between Eastern and Western political theologies. Even if we are open and sympathetic to one another—and historically that is a big ‘if’—the traditions are so distinct from one another that few can claim expertise in both, and so we continue to focus narrowly on our own traditions. This volume represents a welcome change to this pattern, opening a conversation between theologians across Eastern and Western traditions on the timely topics of church and state, democracy, and liberalism.”—Elizabeth Phillips, Westcott House, Cambridge 304 PAGES 978-0-8232-7420-8 PAPER, $35.00, £29.99 978-0-8232-7419-2 CLOTH, $125.00, £108.00 ORTHODOX CHRISTIANITY AND CONTEMPORARY THOUGHT SI MULTANEO US ELECTRO NI C E D I T I O N AVA I L A BL E

Journey into Social Activism Qualitative Approaches JOSHUA D. ATKINSON

Academic study of social activism and social movements has become increasingly prevalent over the years; this is due in large part to the fact that activists have captured public imagination and gained substantial influence in political discourse. For instance, Occupy Wall Street activists, Tea Party activists, and activists affiliated with the Arab Spring have transformed political debates and have become the focus of mainstream news media coverage about a variety of different political topics. Journey into Social Activism explicates the philosophical foundations of the study of activism and illustrates four different research sites in which activism can be observed and studied: organizations, networks, events, and alternative media. 272 PAGES 978-0-8232-7414-7 PAPER, $35.00, £29.99 978-0-8232-7413-0 CLOTH, $125.00, £108.00 DONALD MCGANNON COMMUNICATION RESEARCH CENTER’S EVERETT C.
