As we navigate this second year of global pandemic, we can be grateful to see reasons for hope on the horizon. This catalog looks ahead to the books Johns Hopkins University Press will publish later this year—when, if we remain vigilant and follow the science, the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic may well be behind us. These forthcoming titles are welcome reminders that our authors and our staff have carried on through a period of extraordinary disruption. And many of these books provide the research and trusted expertise that can inspire reasonable hope in the face of significant challenges. Perhaps most notably, this catalog includes the seventh edition of JHUP’s most successful book, The 36-Hour Day: A Family Guide to Caring for People Who Have Alzheimer Disease and Other Dementias, by Nancy Mace and Dr. Peter Rabins (page 2). First published in 1980, this beloved resource has profoundly touched the lives of millions of families and caregivers. We are particularly excited about a thoughtful and timely book by JHU’s president Ronald J. Daniels, What Universities Owe Democracy (page 28), examining the distinct functions of American higher education that are key to strengthening liberal democracy. The book joins other notable titles on our highly-regarded education list, including The Great Upheaval: Higher Education's Past, Present, and Uncertain Future, by Arthur Levine and Scott Van Pelt (page 29), and Teaching Change: How to Develop Independent Thinkers Using Relationships, Resilience, and Reflection, by José Antonio Bowen (page 30). In the months ahead, as progress continues and better days return, let us be mindful that research and evidenced-based decision-making have been essential to meeting the challenge of COVID-19. And let us be grateful to the authors, peer-reviewers, and avid readers who embrace trusted expertise and the reasoned search for truth. Sincerely,

Barbara Kline Pope

THE BLACK PRESIDENT Hope and Fury in the Age of Obama CLAUDE A. CLEGG III In The Black President, the first interpretative, grand-narrative history of Barack Obama’s presidency in its entirety, Claude A. Clegg III situates the former president in his dynamic, inspirational, yet contentious political context. He captures the America that made Obama’s White House years possible, while insightfully rendering the America that resolutely resisted the idea of a Black chief executive, thus making conceivable the ascent of the most unlikely of his successors. In elucidating the Obama moment in American politics and culture, this book is also, at its core, a sweeping exploration of the Obama presidency’s historical environment, impact, and meaning for African Americans—the tens of millions of people from every walk of life who collectively were his staunchest group of supporters and who most starkly experienced both the euphoric triumphs and dispiriting shortcomings of his years in office. In Obama’s own words, his White House years were “the best of times and worst of times” for Black America. Clegg is vitally concerned with the veracity of this claim, along with how Obama engaged the aspirations, struggles, and disappointments of his most loyal constituency and how representative segments of Black America engaged, experienced, and interpreted his historic presidency.

Clegg draws on an expansive archive of materials, including government records and reports, interviews, speeches, memoirs, and insider accounts, in order to examine Obama’s complicated upbringing and early political ambitions, his delicate navigation of matters of race, the nature and impacts of his administration’s policies and politics, the inspired but also carefully choreographed symbolism of his presidency (and Michelle Obama’s role), and the spectrum of allies and enemies that he made along the way. The successes and the aspirations of the Obama era, Clegg argues, are explicitly connected to our current racist, toxic political discourse. Combining lively prose with a balanced, nonpartisan portrait of Obama’s successes and failures, The Black President will be required reading not only for historians, politics junkies, and Obama fans, but also for anyone seeking to understand America’s contemporary struggles with inequality, prejudice, and fear.

The first sweeping, legacy-defining history of the entire Obama presidency. “This is the best book I have read about the Obama presidency. Clegg offers a compelling portrait of the president, his policies, and his reception by the African American community. Beautifully connecting the personal with the political, Clegg offers an astute assessment of Barack Obama’s many difficult choices as a candidate, leader, and public figure. The book is thorough, fair-minded, deeply researched, and fluidly written.”—Jeremi Suri, University of Texas at Austin, author of The Impossible Presidency: The Rise and Fall of America’s Highest Office “The Black President: Hope and Fury in the Age of Obama is an authoritative account of how America lurched from a president who led with love, to an administration forged by fear. Told in vivid detail, Clegg’s analysis is as insightful as it is accessible––pulling back the curtain on the forces that frustrated Barack Obama’s vision and carried Trumpism from the margins to the mainstream. This volume is more than a history of the Obama presidency; it is a summary of the era’s most searing lessons on race and identity, a prism through which to understand our nation’s fractured present, and a roadmap for building a more just society.”—Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles

AMERICA’S ORIGINAL SIN White Supremacy, John Wilkes Booth, and the Lincoln Assassination JOHN RHODEHAMEL On April 14, 1865, after nearly a year of conspiring, John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln as the president watched a production of Our American Cousin at Ford’s Theatre. Lincoln died the next morning. Twelve days later, Booth himself was fatally shot by a Union soldier after an extensive manhunt. The basic outline of this story is well known even to schoolchildren; what has been obscured is Booth’s motivation for the act, which remains widely misunderstood nearly 160 years after the shot from his pocket pistol echoed through the crowded theater.

SEPTEMBER   480 pages

In this riveting new book, John Rhodehamel argues that Booth’s primary motivation for his heinous crime was a growing commitment to white supremacy. In alternating chapters, America’s Original Sin shows how, as Lincoln’s commitment to emancipation and racial equality grew, so too did Booth’s rage and hatred for Lincoln, whom he referred to as “King Abraham Africanus the First.” Examining Booth’s early life in Maryland, Rhodehamel traces the evolution of his racial hatred from his youthful embrace of white supremacy through to his final act of murder. Along the way, he considers and discards other potential motivations for Booth’s act, such as mental illness or persistent drunkenness, which are all, Rhodehamel writes, either insufficient to explain Booth’s actions or were excuses made after the fact by those who sympathized with him.

Focusing on how white supremacy brought about the Civil War and, later, betrayed the conflict’s emancipationist legacy, Rhodehamel’s masterful narrative makes this old story seem new again. The first book to explicitly name white supremacy as the motivation for Lincoln’s assassination, America’s Original Sin is an important and eloquent look at one of the most notorious episodes in American history.

Finally, a compelling narrative history of the Lincoln assassination that refuses to ignore John Wilkes Booth’s motivation: his growing, obsessive commitment to white supremacy.

“This unique book combines Rhodehamel’s intriguing insights with the excellent characterizations and top-tier research that have always distinguished his work.” —Terry Alford, Professor Emeritus, Northern Virginia Community College, author of Fortune’s Fool: The Life of John Wilkes Booth “By emphasizing John Wilkes Booth’s devotion to white supremacy and the depth of his rage at Abraham Lincoln’s public call for black voting rights, Rhodehamel shows why the sixteenth president should be regarded as a martyr to African American civil rights.”—Michael Burlingame, University of Illinois Springfield, author of Abraham Lincoln: A Life

“America’s Original Sin offers an engaging and (unfortunately) very timely review of the life of John Wilkes Booth and his assassination of Abraham Lincoln. By emphasizing Booth’s racism and devotion to white supremacist politics as the keys to his murderous deed, the author challenges the widespread notion that Booth was either simply a madman or an overzealous Southern partisan. Presenting this argument in an engagingly well-written narrative history, Rhodehamel has done a great service by bringing this point to a wide audience. An important and powerful book.”—Michael E. Woods, University of Tennessee, Knoxville, author of Arguing until Doomsday: Stephen Douglas, Jefferson Davis, and the Struggle for American Democracy

Now updated! The new edition of this bestselling guide uses science to tackle some of the most important decisions facing new parents —from sleep training and vaccinations to breastfeeding and baby food.

THE SCIENCE OF MOM A Research-Based Guide to Your Baby’s First Year

second edition ALICE CALLAHAN, PhD

When scientist Alice Callahan became a mom, she knew it would mean long nights of rocking and feeding the baby. What she didn’t anticipate was the barrage of parenting questions that would send her down rabbit holes of late-night internet searches. Is co-sleeping safe? How important is breastfeeding, and how can parents help it go smoothly? When should babies start eating solid foods, and are there ways to reduce the risk of food allergies? These questions can confound even the most well-informed parents, and the search for answers may open the door to a deluge of conflicting advice from well-meaning relatives, judgmental strangers on social media, and self-proclaimed internet experts. In this revised and expanded new edition of The Science of Mom, Callahan, a science writer whose work appears in the New York Times and the Washington Post, turns again to the research literature for clarity. She shares the latest information on raising healthy babies and covers additional topics like the microbiome, attachment, dietary supplements, pacifiers, increasing breast milk production, preventing allergies, babyl ed weaning, and choosing an infant formula. Written with compassion and nuance, this unique guide recognizes that all families must make their own decisions and gives science-minded parents the tools to evaluate the evidence for themselves. ALICE CALLAHAN (EUGENE, OR) holds a PhD in nutritional biology from the University of California, Davis, and spent two years investigating fetal physiology as a postdoctoral scholar. After giving birth to her first child in 2010, she put her scientific training to work answering the big questions of caring for a baby. She NOVEMBER   424 pages   6 x 9

RIGHT PLACE, RIGHT TIME The Ultimate Guide to Choosing a Home for the Second Half of Life RYAN FREDERICK, CEO of SmartLiving 360

foreword by Paul Irving

Wondering where to live in your later years? This strategic and thoughtful guide is aimed at anyone looking to determine the best place to call home during the second half of life.

Place plays a significant role in health and happiness. The right place elevates well-being and can help promote purpose, facilitate human connection, catalyze physical activity, support financial health, and inspire community engagement. Conversely, the wrong place can be detrimental to health, as the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted. In Right Place, Right Time, Ryan Frederick argues that where you live matters enormously—especially during the second half of your life. Frederick, the CEO of SmartLiving 360 and a recognized thought leader on the intersection of place and healthy aging, provides you with tools to evaluate your living situation, ensuring that you weigh all the necessary factors to make a sound decision that optimizes your current and future well-being. He explores the pros and cons of different living options, from remaining in your current home to downsizing, intergenerational living, co-housing, senior living, and more. The book helps unpack specific options for place, beginning with considerations for regions and neighborhoods and then looking at specific housing models. It also focuses on how housing is changing, particularly from a technology, health, and health care perspective. Combining real-life stories about people selecting places to live with design thinking principles and interactive tools, Right Place, Right Time will appeal to empty nesters, retirees, solo agers, and even adult children seeking ways to support their parents and loved ones.

“Ryan Frederick helps people in the second half of their life to make decisions— particularly as related to place—that optimize their chances of living a long, healthy life.”—Maria T.

The moving story of an English professor studying neurology in order to understand and come to terms with her father’s death from Alzheimer’s.

FINDING THE RIGHT WORDS A Story of Literature, Grief, and the Brain CINDY WEINSTEIN

with Bruce L. Miller, MD In 1985, Cindy Weinstein’s beloved father, Jerry, was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease. Twelve years later, he died after having lost all of his memories—along with his ability to read, write, and speak. Finding the Right Words follows Weinstein’s decades-long journey to come to terms with her father’s dementia as both a daughter and an English professor. Although her lifelong love of language and literature gave her a way to talk about her grief, she realized that she also needed to learn more about the science of dementia to make sense of her father’s death. To write her story, she collaborated with Dr. Bruce L. Miller, neurologist and director of the Memory and Aging Center at the University of California, San Francisco, combining personal memoir, literature, and the science and history of brain health into a unique, educational, and meditative work. Finding the Right Words is an invaluable guide for families dealing with a life-changing diagnosis. In chapters of profound remembrance, Weinstein relies on literature to describe the shock of her father’s diagnosis. Writing in response to Weinstein’s deeply personal narrative, Dr. Miller describes the neurological processes responsible for the symptoms displayed by her father. Their two perspectives give readers a fuller understanding of Alzheimer’s than any one voice could.

Over the years, she writes, our understanding of how cancer cells move throughout the body, change as they plant themselves in the body’s microenvironments, and even communicate with one another have led to major insights about how cancer works. She explains how age-related changes in the microenvironment contribute to multiple aspects of melanoma formation and development. Such scholarship, she argues, is moving us toward a day when more patients will be declared cancer-free. The book • explores key insights and studies developed in recent years that have greatly influenced the world of cancer research, including how aging microenvironments within our bodies encourage metastasis and therapy resistance

• raises awareness about how cancer works within the body and what any patient or family encountering the disease needs to understand—while also offering them hope based on new and forthcoming diagnostic and treatment methods

How can we work together to understand the rise of obesity and reverse its related diseases and societal impacts?


In Can the Obesity Crisis Be Reversed?, Dr. Rexford S. Ahima, MD, PhD, draws on his extensive laboratory and clinical experiences at top institutions to examine the complicated causes of obesity, as well as the most cutting-edge approaches for prevention and treatment. Ahima looks at how the rising trends of obesity and associated diseases are driving up health care costs. He also offers insight into the widespread suffering that obesity imposes and its disproportionate impacts in minority and underserved communities. Calling for greater societal and community engagement in stemming the obesity crisis, Ahima argues that there is an urgent need to promote healthier foods and environmental infrastructure as well as formal programs that reduce obesity. By understanding and applying fundamental knowledge, Can the Obesity Crisis Be Reversed? makes a convincing case that all of us, working individually and collectively, can help to reverse the obesity crisis. The book • provides information on the biological pathways that control eating and metabolism

• offers practical recommendations for healthy diets, exercise, and lifestyle

• explains genetic and environmental bases of obesity

• discusses current medical and surgical treatments for obesity

• reviews the contributions of diet and physical activity to weight gain while speaking to the folly and dangers of individual blame

• examines comprehensive societal strategies for obesity prevention

Have the social safety nets, environmental protections, and policies to redress wealth and income inequality enacted after World War II contributed to declining rates of dementia today?

AMERICAN DEMENTIA Brain Health in an Unhealthy Society DANIEL R. GEORGE, PhD, MSc, and PETER J. WHITEHOUSE, MD, PhD For decades, researchers have chased a pharmaceutical cure for memory loss. But despite the fact that no disease-modifying biotech treatments have emerged, new research suggests that dementia rates have actually declined in the United States and Western Europe over the last decade. In American Dementia, Daniel R. George, PhD, MSc, and Peter J. Whitehouse, MD, PhD, argue that the current decline of dementia may be strongly linked to mid–twentieth century policies that reduced inequality, provided widespread access to education and health care, and brought about cleaner air, soil, and water. They also • explain why Alzheimer’s disease is the hallmark illness of our current hypercapitalist era;

• tackle the ageist tendencies in our culture, which disadvantage both vulnerable youth and elders;

• reveal how the soaring inequalities of the twenty-first century—which are sowing poverty, barriers to health care and education, loneliness, lack of sleep, stressful life events, environmental exposures, and climate change—are reversing the gains of the twentieth century and damaging our brains;

• make an evidence-based argument that policies like single-payer health care, a living wage, and universal access to free higher education and technical training programs will build collective resilience to dementia; and • promote strategies that show how local communities can rise above disconnection and loneliness and come together to care for our struggling neighbors.

MISUNDERSTANDING HEALTH Making Sense of America’s Broken Health Care System ROHIT KHANNA

This eminently relevant and thoroughly entertaining book reminds us that understanding more about health care helps us understand the larger world around us.

With technological advances and information sharing so prevalent, health care should be more transparent and easier to access than ever before. So why does it seem like everything about it—from pricing, drug development, and the emergence of new diseases to the intricacies of biologic and precision medicine therapies—is becoming more complex? Rohit Khanna’s Misunderstanding Health examines some of today’s most revealing health care trends while imploring us to look at these issues with alacrity, humor, and vigilance. Over the course of eighteen short, engaging chapters, Khanna explains • how unexamined beliefs can endanger patients, drive up cost, and increase bureaucracy • the “Dr. Google” effect on the ways that we seek (or eschew) care • why our health care costs more than in any other country • the unintended consequences of using rating sites like Yelp • what we can learn about health care from hurricanes

• how artificial intelligence can improve health care • why health screening programs are so complicated • what the industry is doing to combat health care fraud • how to think about behavioral “nudges” designed to improve health • why understanding how data are collected is critical to understanding what the data can tell us

• how social media influencers impact health care

Each provocative and easy-to-read chapter covers a familiar aspect of health care in a clear and succinct way and offers inquisitive readers a warts-and-all view of American health care.

A compelling look at the historical roots of poverty and homelessness, the “worthy” and “unworthy” poor, and the role of charity health care and public policy in the United States.

SKID ROAD On the Frontier of Health and Homelessness in an American City JOSEPHINE ENSIGN

Seattle has the third-highest homeless population in the United States. In 2018, an estimated 8,600 homeless people lived in the city, a figure that does not include the significant number of “hidden” homeless people doubled up with friends or living in and out of cheap hotels. In Skid Road, Josephine Ensign digs through layers of Seattle history to reveal the stories of overlooked and long-silenced people who live on the margins of society. How, Ensign asks, has a large, socially progressive city like Seattle responded to the health needs of people marginalized by poverty, mental illness, addiction, identity-based discrimination, and homelessness? Drawing on interviews and extensive research, Ensign shares a diversity of voices within contemporary health care and public policy debates. Informed by her own lived experience of homelessness, as well as over three decades of work as a family nurse practitioner providing primary health care to homeless people, Ensign is uniquely situated to explore the tensions that polarize perspectives on homelessness. A timely story in light of the ongoing health care reform debate, the affordable housing crisis, and the COVID-19 pandemic, the stories from Skid Road illuminate issues surrounding poverty and homelessness throughout America.

“Timely, unique, and important. I have never read a book quite like this one. A gifted writer, Ensign uses narrative history to reveal various intersectionalities and tensions in the machine of structural and systemic inequities, oppression, violence, and trauma.”—Sara K.

WHAT THE AMISH TEACH US Plain Living in a Busy World

What do the traditional plain-living Amish have to teach twenty-first-century Americans in our hyper-everything world? As it turns out, quite a lot!

DONALD B. KRAYBILL Having spent four decades researching Amish communities, Donald B. Kraybill is in a unique position to share important lessons from these fascinating Plain people. In this inspiring book, we learn intriguing truths about community, family, education, faith, forgiveness, aging, and death from real Amish men and women. The Amish are ahead of us, for example, in relying on apprenticeship education. They have also out-Ubered Uber for nearly a century, hiring cars owned and operated by their neighbors. Kraybill also explains how the Amish function in modern society by rejecting new developments that harm their community, accepting those that enhance it, and adapting others to fit their values. Pairing storytelling with informative and reflective passages, these twenty-two essays offer a critique of modern culture that is provocative yet practical. In a time when civil discourse is raw and coarse and our social fabric seems torn asunder, What the Amish Teach Us uproots our assumptions about progress and prods us to question why we do what we do.

“Donald Kraybill remains the unrivalled master of scholarly works on the Amish. This book—full of tightly constructed writing and well-defined content—demonstrates his authority to speak on Amish culture as a recognized expert. Each essay offers an intriguing compare-and-contrast of Amish life with the hypermodern approaches of mainstream culture.” —James A. Cates, author of Serpent in the Garden: Amish Sexuality in a Changing World DONALD B.

During times like these, who hasn’t daydreamed about traveling forward or backward in time?

Ten Short Lessons BRIAN CLEGG In Time Travel: Ten Short Lessons, popular-science master Brian Clegg gives a grand tour of the essential lessons in this game-changing area of physics, from the imagination of novelists to current research. Einstein’s special theory of relativity told us that time travel to the future was possible, and later his general theory of relativity showed us that loops in spacetime could exist, meaning that we might be able to bend time backward, too. But what are the practicalities of making time travel possible? What do we still need to know? How do we deal with paradoxical twists in time—and could quantum physics hold the answer? Packed full of easy-to-understand diagrams and fact boxes, these ten lessons cover all the basics, as well as the latest understanding and developments, to enlighten the nonscientist.

THE CHEMISTRY OF FEAR Harvey Wiley’s Fight for Pure Food JONATHAN REES

A fascinating examination of the controversial work of Harvey Wiley, the founder of the pure food movement and an early crusader against the use of additives and preservatives in food.

Though trained as a medical doctor, chemist Harvey Wiley spent most of his professional life advocating for “pure food”—food free of both adulterants and preservatives. Wiley gained fame for what became known as the Poison Squad experiments— a series of tests in which, to learn more about the effects of various chemicals on the human body, Wiley’s own employees at the Department of Agriculture agreed to consume food mixed with significant amounts of various additives, including borax, sulfuric acid, and formaldehyde. One hundred years later, Wiley’s influence lives on in many of our current popular ideas about food: that the wrong food can kill you; that the right food can extend your life; that additives are unnatural; and that unnatural food is unhealthy food. In The Chemistry of Fear, Jonathan Rees examines Wiley’s many—and varied—conflicts and clashes over food safety, including the addition of caffeine to Coca-Cola and formaldehyde to milk. Although Wiley is often depicted as an unwavering champion of the consumer’s interest, Rees argues that his critics rightfully questioned some of his motivations, as well as the conclusions that he drew from his most important scientific work. And although Wiley’s fame and popularity gave him enormous influence, Rees reveals that his impact on what Americans eat depends more upon fear than it does upon the quality of his research.

The definitive account of the lynching of twenty-two-year-old Matthew Williams in Maryland, the subsequent investigation, and the legacy of “modern-day” lynchings.

THE SILENT SHORE The Lynching of Matthew Williams and the Politics of Racism in the Free State CHARLES L. CHAVIS JR. On December 4, 1931, a mob of white men in Salisbury, Maryland, lynched and set ablaze a twenty-two-year-old Black man named Matthew Williams. His gruesome murder was part of a wave of white terrorism in the wake of the stock market crash of 1929. For nearly a century, the lynching of Matthew Williams has lived in the shadows of the more well-known incidents of racial terror in the deep South, haunting both the Eastern Shore and the state of Maryland as a whole. In The Silent Shore, author Charles L. Chavis Jr. draws on his discovery of previously unreleased investigative documents to meticulously reconstruct the full story of one of the last lynchings in Maryland. Bringing the painful truth of anti-Black violence to light, Chavis breaks the silence that surrounded Williams’s death. Maryland was the site of at least 40 spectacle lynchings after the abolition of slavery in 1864. Families of lynching victims rarely obtained any form of justice, but Williams’s death would have a curious afterlife: the politically ambitious Governor Albert C. Ritchie became one of the first governors in the United States to investigate the lynching death of a Black person. Ritchie tasked Patsy Johnson, a member of the Pinkerton detective agency and a former prizefighter, with going undercover in Salisbury and infiltrating the mob that murdered Williams. Johnson would eventually befriend a young local who admitted to participating in the lynching and who also named several local law enforcement officers as ringleaders. Despite this, a grand jury, after hearing 124 witness statements, declined to indict the perpetrators. CHARLES L. CHAVIS JR. (FAIRFAX, VA) is an assistant professor of conflict

Universities have historically been integral to democracy. What can they do to reclaim this critical role?


with Grant Shreve and Phillip Spector Universities play an indispensable role within modern democracies. But this role is often overlooked or too narrowly conceived, even by universities themselves. In What Universities Owe Democracy, Ronald J. Daniels, the president of Johns Hopkins University, argues that— at a moment when liberal democracy is endangered and more countries are heading toward autocracy than at any time in generations—it is critical for today’s colleges and universities to reestablish their place in democracy. Drawing upon fields as varied as political science, economics, history, and sociology, Daniels identifies four distinct functions of American higher education that are key to liberal democracy: social mobility, citizenship education, the stewardship of facts, and the cultivation of pluralistic, diverse communities. By examining these roles over time, Daniels explains where colleges and universities have faltered in their execution of these functions—and what they can do going forward. Daniels offers bold prescriptions for how universities can act now to strengthen democracy. For those committed to democracy’s future prospects, this book is a vital resource. Since 2009, RONALD J. DANIELS (BALTIMORE, MD) has served as the fourteenth president of Johns Hopkins University.

THE GREAT UPHEAVAL Higher Education’s Past, Present, and Uncertain Future

How will America’s colleges and universities adapt to remarkable technological, economic, and demographic change?

ARTHUR LEVINE and SCOTT VAN PELT The United States is in the midst of a profound transformation the likes of which hasn’t been seen since the Industrial Revolution. As the world shifts to an increasingly interconnected knowledge economy, the intersecting forces of technological innovation, globalization, and demographic change create new challenges, opportunities, and uncertainties. In this great upheaval, the nation’s most enduring social institutions are at a crossroads. In The Great Upheaval, Arthur Levine and Scott Van Pelt examine higher and postsecondary education to see how it has changed to become what it is today—and how it might be refitted for an uncertain future. Taking a unique historical, cross-industry perspective, Levine and Van Pelt perform a 360-degree survey of American higher education. Combining historical, trend, and comparative analysis of other business sectors, they ask • how much will colleges and universities change, what will change, and how will these changes occur? • will institutions of higher learning be able to adapt to the challenges they face, or will they be disrupted by them?

• will the industrial model of higher education be repaired or replaced? • why is higher education more important than ever?

The book is neither an attempt to advocate for a particular future direction nor a warning about that future. Rather, it looks objectively at the contexts in which higher education has operated— and will continue to operate. It also seeks to identify likely developments that will aid those involved in steering higher education forward, as well as the many millions of Americans who have a stake in its future. SEPTEMBER

This pathbreaking book for educators shows that focusing on relationships, resilience, and reflection can better prepare graduates for the future.

TEACHING CHANGE How to Develop Independent Thinkers Using Relationships, Resilience, and Reflection JOSÉ ANTONIO BOWEN, author of Teaching Naked Learning something new—particularly something that might change your mind—is much more difficult than most teachers think. Because people think with their emotions and are influenced by their communities and social groups, people tend to ignore new information unless it fits their existing worldview. Thus facts alone, even if discussed in detail, typically fail to open minds and create change. In a world in need of graduates who can adapt to new information and situations, we need to renew our educational commitment to producing flexible and independent thinkers. In Teaching Change, José Antonio Bowen argues that education needs to be redesigned to take into account how human thinking, behaviors, bias, and change really work. Drawing on new research, Bowen explores how we can create better conditions for learning that focus less on teachers and content and more on students and process. He also examines student psychology, history, assumptions, anxiety, and bias and advocates for education to focus on a new 3Rs— relationships, resilience, and reflection. Finally, he suggests explicit learning designs to foster the ability to think for yourself. The case for a liberal (by which Bowen means liberating) education has never been stronger, but, he says, it needs to be redesigned to achieve the goal of creating lifelong learners and citizens capable of divergent and independent thinking. With an expansive and powerful argument, Teaching Change combines elegant and gripping explanations of recent and wide-ranging research from biology, economics, education, and neuroscience with hundreds of practical suggestions for individual teachers.

Finally! A workbook that guides you—and your family—through a positive college admission experience.

BRENNAN BARNARD and RICK CLARK College admission has always been complicated—and COVID-19 has changed the college search and selection process in profound and challenging ways. But the authors behind the best-selling The Truth about College Admission are here to help with a new college admission workbook. Packed with activities and exercises, it’s designed to help students find multiple colleges where they can not only get in, afford to go, and thrive on campus but also enjoy the adventure along the way. From building a balanced list of schools to research and visit to writing essays, preparing for interviews, and ultimately choosing a college to attend, the interactive exercises in this comprehensive workbook provide students with important questions to ask, information to consider, and the preparation they need to help them focus more on how they ultimately arrive on a college campus rather than precisely where their journey takes them. If done right, college counselor Brennan Barnard and undergraduate admission director Rick Clark demonstrate, college admission can be more like the college experience itself—an opportunity to grow, learn, discover, enjoy, and build close, lasting relationships. SEPTEMBER

A companion resource to The Truth about College Admission: A Family Guide to Getting In and Staying Together, each chapter in this guide is designed to help high school classes, small study groups, or individual students and their families focus on the most important questions to ask, steps to take, and conversations to have as they apply to college.

The disturbing truth: school suspension does more than impede Black students’ academic achievement—it also impacts their parents’ employment and can violate state and federal laws.

SUSPENDED Punishment, Violence, and the Failure of School Safety CHARLES BELL

In their pursuit of quality education, many Black families are burdened by challenging barriers to success, most notably the frequency and severity of school punishment. Such punishment is meant to be a disciplinary tool that makes schools safer, but it actually does the opposite—and is particularly harmful for Black students and their families. Focusing on schools in inner-city and suburban Detroit, Charles Bell draws on 160 indepth interviews with Black high school students, their parents, and their teachers to illuminate the negative outcomes that are associated with out-of-school suspension. Bell also sheds light on the inherent shortcomings of school safety measures as he describes how schools fail to protect Black students, which leaves them vulnerable to bullying and victimization. The students he interviews offer detailed insight into how the lack of protection they received in school intensified their fear of being harmed and even motivated them to use violence to establish a reputation that discouraged attacks. Collectively, their narratives reveal how receiving a suspension for fighting in school earned them respect, popularity, and a reputation for toughness—transforming school punishment into a powerful status symbol that destabilizes classrooms. A thought-provoking and urgent work, Suspended calls for an inclusive national dialogue on school punishment and safety reform.

The first comprehensive history of American public school librarianship.

AMERICAN PUBLIC SCHOOL LI BRARIANSHIP A History WAYNE A. WIEGAND In American Public School Librarianship, Wayne A. Wiegand recounts the unseen history of both school libraries and their librarians. Why, Wiegand asks, did school librarianship turn out the way it did? And what can its history tell us about limitations and opportunities in the coming decades of the twenty-first century? Addressing issues of race, social class, gender, and sexual orientation as they affected American public school librarianship throughout its history, Wiegand explores how libraries were transformed by the Great Depression, the civil rights era, Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society programs, and more recent legislation like No Child Left Behind, Common Core, and the Every Student Succeeds Act. Wiegand touches on censorship, the impact of school segregation on school libraries, racial and class disparities in funding, the development of school librarianship as a profession, the history of organizations like the American Association for School Librarians, and how emerging technologies affected school librarianship. Wiegand clarifies the historical role of the school librarian as an opponent of censorship and defender of intellectual freedom. He also analyzes the politics of a woman-dominated school library profession, identifies and evaluates the profession’s major players and their battles (often against patriarchy), and challenges the priorities of librarianship’s current agendas, particularly regarding the role of “reading” in the everyday lives of children and young adults. Filling a huge void in the history of education, American Public School Librarianship provides essential background information to members of the nation’s school library and educational communities who are charged with supervising and managing America’s 80,000 public school libraries.

WHAT’S PUBLIC ABOUT PUBLIC HIGHER ED? Halting Higher Education’s Decline in the Court of Public Opinion STEPHEN M. GAVAZZI and E. GORDON GEE

Offers insight into how to repair the growing rift between higher education and its public.

Higher education gets a bad rap. The public perception is that there is a growing rift between public universities and the elected officials who support them. In What’s Public about Public Higher Ed?, Stephen M. Gavazzi and E. Gordon Gee explore the reality of that supposed divide, offering qualitative and quantitative evidence of why it’s happened and what can be done about it.

Critical problems, Gavazzi and Gee argue, have arisen because higher education leaders often assumed that what was good for universities was good for the public at large. For example, many public institutions have placed more emphasis on research at the expense of teaching, learning, and outreach. This university-centric viewpoint has contributed significantly to the disconnect between our nation’s public universities and the representatives of the people they are supposed to be serving. But this gulf can only be bridged if people at universities take the time to really listen to what the citizens of their states are asking of them.

Gavazzi and Gee draw on never-before-gathered survey data on public sentiment regarding higher education. Collected from citizens in California, Florida, New York, Texas, Ohio, and West Virginia, the data reflect critical issues, including how universities spend taxpayer money, the pursuit of national rankings, and student financial aid. An unflinching exploration of what citizens think about their public universities, What’s Public about Public Higher Ed? places special emphasis on the events of 2020—including the COVID-19 pandemic and the uprising for racial justice—as major inflection points for understanding the implications of the survey’s findings.

Building rapport with students can revive the promise of online education, leading to greater success for students, more fulfilling teaching experiences for faculty, and improved enrollment for universities.

CONNECTING IN THE ONLINE CLASSROOM Building Rapport between Teachers and Students REBECCA A. GLAZIER More students than ever before are taking online classes, yet higher education is facing an online retention crisis; students are failing and dropping out of online classes at dramatically higher rates than face-to-face classes. Grounded in academic research, original surveys, and experimental studies, Connecting in the Online Classroom demonstrates how connecting with students in online classes through even simple rapport-building efforts can significantly improve retention rates and help students succeed. Drawing on more than a dozen years of experience teaching and researching online, Rebecca A. Glazier provides practical, easy-to-use techniques that online instructors can implement right away to begin building rapport with their students, including • proactively reaching out through personalized check-in emails; • creating opportunities for human connection before courses even begin through a short welcome survey; • communicating faculty investment in students’ success by providing individualized and meaningful assignment feedback;

• hosting non-content-based discussion threads where students and faculty can get to know one other; and • responding to students’ questions with positivity and encouragement (and occasionally also cute animal pictures).

Although the great promise of online education is expanded access and greater equity— especially for traditionally underserved populations, like lower-income students, working parents, first-generation students, and students of color—the current gap between online and face-to-face retention means universities are falling far short of this promise.

NEO-NATIONALISM AND UNIVERSITIES Populists, Autocrats, and the Future of Higher Education JOHN AUBREY DOUGLASS

The rise of neo-nationalism is having a profound and troubling impact on leading national universities and the societies they serve. This is the first comparative study of how today’s right-wing populist movements and authoritarian governments are threatening higher education.

Universities have long been at the forefront of both national development and global integration. But the political world in which they operate is undergoing a transition, one that is reflective of a significant change in domestic politics and international relations: a populist turn inward among a key group of nation-states, often led by demagogues, that includes China and Hong Kong, Turkey, Hungary, Russia, Brazil, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

In Neo-nationalism and Universities, John Aubrey Douglass provides the first significant examination of the rise of neo-nationalism and its impact on the missions, activities, behaviors, and productivity of leading national universities. Douglass presents a major comparative exploration of the role of national politics and norms in shaping the role of universities in nation-states—and vice versa. He also explores when universities are either agents of social and economic change or simply agents reinforcing and supporting an existing social and political order. In a series of case studies, Douglass and contributors examine troubling trends that threaten the societal role of universities, including attacks on civil liberties and the validity of science; the firing and jailing of academics; anti-immigrant rhetoric; and restrictions on visas with consequences for the mobility of academic talent. The book offers recommendations to preserve the autonomy and academic freedom of universities and their constituents.

Revitalizing Conversations for Higher Education


A must-read collection on contemporary threats to academic freedom.


A call for courageous conversations focusing on nine taboo subjects that bedevil higher education. In Communicate for a Change, distinguished scholars Lori Carrell and Robert Zemsky bring together nine of their most insightful conversations about higher education to explore difficult questions that today’s administrators, trustees, and faculty members too frequently avoid. Grounded in the real importance of community in making change, these revealing conversations also explore • why members of the public no longer see faculty as heroes and experts

• how money talks

• how to overcome the academy’s fondness for slogans

• how to constructively approach differences of race and gender

• why curricular change doesn’t (usually) happen

In Challenges to Academic Freedom, Joseph C. Hermanowicz argues that academic freedom is not static. Rather, we may view academic freedom as a set of relational practices that change over time and place. Bringing together scholars from a wide range of fields, this volume examines the status of academic freedom in the United States. Authors consider topics such as • the sources of recurring threat to academic freedom; • administrative interference and overreach; • the effects of administrative law and the tenuous tie between academic freedom and the law; and • the highly contested arena of extramural speech and social media.

Student Success in Community College

This guide provides women with the frank, supportive advice they need.

To improve community college success, we need to consider the lived realities of students.

In A Leadership Guide for Women in Higher Education, Marjorie Hass draws on her sixteen years of senior leadership experience, her work with national higher education organizations, and her mentorship work with dozens of women to address fundamental issues women face when they lead in higher education. In this frank guide to launching, building, and advancing your academic career, Hass addresses a wide range of topics, including

Community colleges are facing a completion crisis. The college-going experience of too many students is interrupted, lengthening their time to completing a degree—or worse, causing many to drop out altogether. In The Costs of Completion, Robin G. Isserles contextualizes this crisis by placing blame on the neoliberal policies that have shaped public community colleges over the past thirty years. The disinvestment of state funding has created austerity conditions, leading to an overreliance on contingent labor, excessive investments in advisement technologies, and a push to performance outcomes like retention and graduation rates for measuring student and institutional success.

Surveys academic freedom’s history and its application in today’s universities. Henry Reichman mounts a rigorous defense of academic freedom and its principal means of protection: the system of academic tenure. Reichman draws on a wealth of historical and contemporary examples to offer the first comprehensive introduction to the concept in all its manifestations. He argues that academic freedom cannot easily be defined but, instead, emerges from the contextual application of guiding principles developed and modified over time. He also explores why the rise of contingent faculty employment represents the gravest current threat to academic freedom; reveals how academic freedom is complicated by both fiercely polarized campus environments and the emergence of social media; and touches on the rights of students in and out of class, including treatment of student protest movements.

PREVENTING CRISES AT YOUR UNIVERSITY The Playbook for Protecting Your Institution’s Reputation SIMON R. BARKER

A new playbook for effective crisis management in higher education. In Preventing Crises at Your University, Simon R. Barker demonstrates how critical it is for colleges and universities to align strategy and values with decision-making during times of crisis. Significant reputational damage is not the inevitable outcome of a crisis but of a poor response. Defining a new crisis leadership playbook to deal with selfinflicted crises, he also • explains what typically goes wrong in a crisis; • describes how to prevent crises from escalating; and • introduces a number of original concepts, including a Reputational Risk Management Framework, a Reputational Risk Maturity Model, and a Culture and Capability matrix.

Instead of private gain or corporate profits, what if we set public values as the goal of leadership?


In Public Values Leadership, Barry Bozeman and Michael M. Crow explore leadership that serves public values—values that are focused on the collective good and fundamental rights rather than profit, organizational benefit, or personal gain. How does public values leadership differ from other types of organizational leadership, and what distinctive skills does it require? Drawing on their extensive experience as higher education leaders, Bozeman and Crow wrestle with the question of how to best attain universally agreed-upon public values like freedom, opportunity, health, and security. They present conversations and interviews with ten wellknown leaders—people who have achieved public values objectives and who are willing to discuss their leadership styles in detail. They also offer a series of in-depth case studies of public values leadership and accomplishment. Public values leadership can only succeed if it includes a commitment to pragmatism, a deep skepticism about government versus market stereotypes, and a genuine belief in the fundamental importance of partnerships and alliances. Arguing for a “mutable leadership,” they suggest that different people are leaders at different times and that ideas about natural leaders or all-purpose leaders are off the mark.

How can dedicated health care ethics committees increase their effectiveness and demonstrate their value as essential moral resources for their organizations?

LINDA FARBER POST and JEFFREY BLUSTEIN Among the most effective resources in the health care decision-making process is the institutional ethics committee. The Joint Commission accredits and certifies more than 19,000 health care organizations in the United States, including hospitals, nursing homes, and home care agencies. As a condition of accreditation, TJC requires health care organizations to have available a standing multidisciplinary ethics committee, composed of physicians, nurses, attorneys, ethicists, administrators, and interested lay citizens. Handbook for Health Care Ethics Committees was conceived in 2007 to address the myriad responsibilities assumed by ethics committees. Using sample cases and accessible language, Linda Farber Post and Jeffrey Blustein explored applied bioethics, including informed consent and refusal, decision making and decisional capacity, truth telling, care at the beginning and end of life, palliation, justice in and access to health care services, and organizational ethics. In the third edition, Post and Blustein have thoroughly updated and reorganized the content and expanded the scope of the material, with special attention to changes in the health care landscape since the second edition was published in 2015. They also focus on communication between and among patients, care providers, and families, the demands of professionalism, the essential role that ethics committees can and should play, and how their effectiveness and value can be assessed. A new chapter examines research ethics. The book also addresses the challenging ethical issues raised by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

CROSSING THE AMERICAN HEALTH CARE CHASM Finding the Path to Bipartisan Collaboration in National Health Care Policy DONALD A. BARR, MD, PhD For decades, Democratic and Republican political leaders have disagreed about the fundamental goals of American health policy. The consequences of this disagreement— particularly in the Republicans’ campaign to erode the coverage and equity gains of the Affordable Care Act—can be seen in the tragic and disparate impact of COVID-19 on the country. In Crossing the American Health Care Chasm, Donald A. Barr, MD, PhD, details the breakdown in political relations in the United States. Why has health policy—which used to be a place where the two sides could find common ground—become the nexus of fiery political conflict? Crossing the American Health Care Chasm offers a series of steps that policy makers can take to improve the national health care situation and provide a basis for ongoing bipartisanship as we continue to confront the policy challenges facing our country.

A Survivor’s Guide to Writing about Trauma

A Short History of Malaria


second edition

foreword by Brian Turner, author of My Life as a Foreign Country afterword by Angela Ricketts, author of No Man’s War


In Stories Are What Save Us, David Chrisinger shows—through writing exercises, memoir excerpts, and lessons he’s learned from his students—the best ways to uncover and effectively communicate what you’ve learned while fighting your life’s battles, whatever they may be. Chrisinger explores both the difficulties inherent in writing about personal trauma and techniques for doing so in a compelling way. Weaving together his journey as a writer, editor, and teacher, he reveals his own deeply personal story of family trauma. Part craft guide, part memoir, and part teacher’s handbook, Stories Are What Save Us presents readers with craft tools and storytelling structures that Chrisinger and his students have used to process conflict in their own lives, creating beautiful stories of growth and transformation.

Malaria sickens hundreds of millions of people—and kills nearly a half a million—each year. Despite massive efforts to eradicate the disease, it remains a major public health problem in poorer tropical regions. From Russia to Bengal to Palm Beach, Randall M. Packard’s far-ranging narrative shows how the history of malaria has been driven by the interplay of social, biological, economic, and environmental forces. The shifting alignment of these forces has determined the social and geographical distribution of the disease, including its initial global expansion, its subsequent retreat to the tropics, and its current persistence. Packard argues that efforts to control and eliminate malaria have often ignored this reality, relying on the use of biotechnologies to fight the disease. Failure to address the forces driving malaria transmission have undermined past efforts.

An Introduction

Using the Past to Study the Present

third edition



What can the interactions of ancient mammals and their environments tell us about the present—and the future?

Exploring the potential for extraterrestrial life and the origins of our own planet, this comprehensive introduction to astrobiology is updated with the latest findings. Informed by the discoveries and analyses of extrasolar planets and the findings from recent robotic missions across the solar system, scientists are rapidly replacing centuries of speculation about potential extraterrestrial habitats with real knowledge about the possibility of life outside our own biosphere. Casting new light on the biggest questions—how did we get here, and who else might be out there?—this third edition of Kevin W. Plaxco and Michael Gross’s widely acclaimed Astrobiology incorporates a decade’s worth of new developments in space science in the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and engaging introduction to the field available. New and updated illustrations enhance the book throughout. KEVIN W. PLAXCO (SANTA BARBARA, CA) is a professor of chemistry at the University of California, Santa Barbara. MICHAEL GROSS (OXFORD, UK) is a science writer based in Oxford. He is the author of Life on the Edge: Amazing Creatures Thriving in Extreme Environments.

Peppered Moths and the Discovery of Parallel Melanism

What Wolves Tell Us about Our Relationship with Nature



A firsthand account of how a modest moth validated Darwin’s theory of natural selection. The extraordinary tale of the humble peppered moth is at the very foundation of our acceptance of Darwinian evolution. When scientists in the early 1900s discovered that a British population of the small Biston betularia had rapidly changed in appearance as a result of the Industrial Revolution—becoming black in response to its sooty environment—the revelation cemented Darwin’s theory of natural selection until the turn of the millennium, when proponents of Creationism fomented doubts about the experimental methods employed. In the midst of this upheaval, scientist Bruce S. Grant was busy collaborating with respected contemporaries to build a dataset that would ultimately vindicate the theory of industrial melanism in the peppered moth and, by extension, the theory of natural selection itself. Observing Evolution tells the remarkable story of his work and is a crash course in natural selection and the history of evolutionary biology. BRUCE S. GRANT (CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA) is Emeritus Professor of biology at the College of William & Mary.

Wolves on a wilderness island illuminate lessons on the environment, extinction, and life. For more than a quarter century, celebrated biologist John A. Vucetich has studied the wolves, and the moose that sustain them, in the boreal forest of Isle Royale National Park, an island in the northwest corner of Lake Superior. During this time, he has witnessed both the near extinction of the local wolf population, driven largely by climate change, and the intensely debated relocation of other wolves to the island in an effort to stabilize Isle Royale’s ecosystem health. In Restoring the Balance, Vucetich combines environmental philosophy with field notes chronicling his day-to-day experiences as a scientist. Examining the fate of wolves in the wild, he shares lessons from these wolves and explains how they reflect on humanity’s fundamental responsibilities to the natural world. JOHN A.

Why have elephants—and our preconceptions about them— been central to so much of human thought?

ELEPHANT TRAILS A History of Animals and Cultures NIGEL ROTHFELS From prehistoric cave drawings in Europe and ancient rock art in Africa and India to burning pyres of confiscated tusks, our thoughts about elephants tell a story of human history. In Elephant Trails, Nigel Rothfels argues that, over millennia, we have made elephants into both monsters and miracles as ways to understand them but also as ways to understand ourselves. Drawing on a broad range of sources, including municipal documents, zoo records, museum collections, and encounters with people who have lived with elephants, Rothfels seeks out the origins of our contemporary ideas about an animal that has been central to so much of human thought. He explains how notions that have been associated with elephants for centuries—that they are exceptionally wise, deeply emotional, and have a special understanding of death; that they never forget, are beloved of the gods, and suffer unusually in captivity; and even that they are afraid of mice—all tell part of the story of these amazing beings. Rothfels effectively and engagingly puts himself in the story in several places. Exploring the history of a skull in a museum, a photograph of an elephant walking through the American South in the early twentieth century, the debate about the quality of life of a famous elephant in a zoo, and the accounts of elephant hunters, he demonstrates that elephants are not what we think they are—and they never have been. Elephant Trails is a compelling portrait of what the author terms “our elephant.” NIGEL ROTHFELS (MILWAUKEE, WI) is a professor of history and the director of the Office of

A History of Psychiatry’s Bible

An American History of Intersex


second edition

The first comprehensive history of “psychiatry’s bible.” In DSM, Allan V. Horwitz examines how the manual, known colloquially as “psychiatry’s bible,” has been at the center of thinking about mental health in the United States since its original publication in 1952. The first book to examine its entire history, this volume draws on both archival sources and the literature on modern psychiatry to show how the history of the DSM is more a story of the growing social importance of psychiatric diagnoses than of increasing knowledge about the nature of mental disorder. Despite attempts to replace it, Horwitz argues that the DSM persists because its diagnostic entities are closely intertwined with too many interests that benefit from them.

“Allan Horwitz—the recognized authority on the DSM— is both balanced and fair minded. There is nothing else like this book.”—Elizabeth Lunbeck, author of The Americanization of Narcissism ALLAN V.

This renowned history of intersex in America has been comprehensively updated. In the summer of 2020, the Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital apologized to their former intersex patients who endured early childhood surgeries “normalizing” the appearance of their genitals and agreed to stop performing such procedures until children were old enough to participate in decisionmaking. In Bodies in Doubt, Elizabeth Reis explains how we arrived at this extraordinary moment, tracing the changing definitions, perceptions, and medical management of intersex (atypical sex development) in America from the colonial period to the present. Reis argues that medical practice must be understood within its broader cultural context. Responses to intersex bodies, she explains, demonstrate how deeply physicians have been influenced by social anxieties about marriage, heterosexuality, and same-sex desire throughout American history, shaping bodies to fit social norms.

GETTING UNDER OUR SKIN The Cultural and Social History of Vermin




How vermin went from being part of everyone’s life to a mark of disease, filth, and lower status. In Getting Under Our Skin, Lisa T. Sarasohn tells the fascinating story of how vermin came to signify the individuals and classes that society impugns and ostracizes. How did these creatures go from annoyance to social stigma? And how did people thought verminous become considered almost a species of vermin themselves? Focusing on Great Britain and North America, Sarasohn explains how the label “vermin” makes dehumanization and violence possible. She describes how Cromwellians in Ireland and US cavalry on the American frontier both justified slaughter by warning, “Nits grow into lice.” Nazis not only labeled Jews as vermin; they used insecticides in the gas chambers to kill them during the Holocaust.

An illuminating exploration of the new frontiers—and unsettled geographical, temporal, and thematic borders—of early modern European history.

Getting Under Our Skin will appeal to cultural historians, naturalists, and to anyone who has ever scratched—and then gazed in horror.

The study of early modern Europe has long been one of the most dynamic fields in the historical profession. Many of the most creative and influential movements in historical scholarship originated as methods for examining the puzzle of Europe between 1450 and 1750, when the compelling paradoxes and features of the world we now inhabit began to coalesce. The essays in New Horizons for Early Modern Scholarship examine recent developments in historiography both to exhibit the field’s continuing vibrancy and to highlight emerging challenges to long-assumed truths. The book reveals how the histories of knowledge and media illuminate fundamental features of early modern Europe and its place within the larger world and raise demanding questions about them.

The Military-Industrial Complex

Print, Politics, and Propaganda in Renaissance Rome



Does the Military-Industrial Complex as we understand it still exist? If so, how has it changed since the end of the Cold War? In Delta of Power, Alex Roland tells the comprehensive history of the Military-Industrial Complex from 1961, the Cold War, and the War on Terror, to the present day. Roland argues that the MIC is now significantly different from how it was when Eisenhower warned of its dangers, still exerting a significant but diminished influence in American life. Focusing intently on the three decades since the end of the Cold War in 1991, Roland explains how a lack of cohesion, rapid change, and historical contingency have transformed America’s military-industrial institutions and infrastructure. Roland addresses five critical realms of transformation: civil-military relations, relations between industry and the state, among government agencies, between scientific-technical communities and the state, and between technology and society.

How did Europe’s oldest political institution come to grips with the disruptive new technology of print? Printing thrived after it came to Rome in the 1460s. Renaissance scholars, poets, and pilgrims in the Eternal City formed a ready market for massproduced books. But Rome was also a capital city—seat of the Renaissance papacy, home to its bureaucracy, and a hub of international diplomacy—and print played a role in these circles, too. In Papal Bull, Margaret Meserve uncovers a critical new dimension of the history of early Italian printing by revealing how the Renaissance popes wielded print as a political tool. Drawing on a vast archive, Papal Bull reveals how the Renaissance popes used print to project an authoritarian vision of their institution and their capital city, even as critics launched blistering attacks in print that foreshadowed the media wars of the coming Reformation. MARGARET MESERVE (SOUTH BEND, IN) is the author of Empires of Islam in Renaissance Historical Thought and the editor and translator of the Commentaries of Pius II.

This richly illustrated volume explores Edison’s inventive and personal pursuits from 1888 to 1889, documenting his responses to technological, organizational, and economic challenges.

THE PAPERS OF THOMAS A. EDISON Competing Interests, January 1888–December 1889

Volume 9 THOMAS A. EDISON edited by PAUL B. ISRAEL, LOUIS CARLAT, THERESA M. COLLINS, ALEXANDRA R. RIMER, and DANIEL J. WEEKS Thomas A. Edison was received at the 1889 Paris Exposition Universelle—the World’s Fair—as a conquering hero. Extravagantly fêted and besieged by well-wishers, he was seen, like Gustave Eiffel’s iron tower, as a triumphal symbol of republicanism and material progress. The visit was a high-water mark of his international fame. Out of the limelight, Edison worked as hard as ever. On top of his work as an inventor, entrepreneur, and manufacturer, he created a new role as a director of research. At his peerless laboratory in Orange, New Jersey, he directed assistants working in parallel on multiple projects. These included the “perfected” phonograph; a major but little-recognized effort to make musical recordings for sale; the start of work on motion pictures; and improvements in the recovery of low-grade iron ore. The ninth volume of the series, Competing Interests explores Edison’s inventive and personal pursuits from 1888 to 1889, documenting his responses to technological, organizational, and economic challenges. The book includes 331 documents and hundreds of Edison’s drawings, which are all revealing and representative of his life and work in these years. Essays and notes based on meticulous research in a wide range of sources, many only recently available, provide a rich context for the documents.

Black and White Life on a Maryland Plantation

Roosevelt and the Making of an Icon



What was antebellum life like for the two communities of people—one white and one black—who lived and worked on a plantation on the Eastern Shore of Maryland? A focused study of one plantation in Maryland, The People of Rose Hill illuminates the workings of the entire plantation system in the border region between the end of the Revolution and the approach of the Civil War. Lucy Maddox looks closely at the public and private lives of the people of Rose Hill. Making extensive use of the letters of Martha Ogle Forman, plantation owner Thomas Marsh Forman’s wife, Maddox places the experiences of Rose Hill’s inhabitants (enslaved and free) within the context of the cultural, economic, and political history of the state. Individual sections profile thirty-eight of the fifty enslaved people at Rose Hill, identifying, as far as possible, each person’s primary work responsibilities, family connections, and history at the plantation, thus giving each a recognized place in the larger history of plantation slavery in the Upper South.

How was FDR’s image constructed—by himself and others—as such a powerful icon in American memory? In polls of historians and political scientists, Franklin Delano Roosevelt consistently ranks among the top three American presidents. Roosevelt enjoyed an enormous political and cultural reach, one that stretched past his presidency and across the world. In FDR in American Memory, Sara Polak analyzes Roosevelt’s construction as a cultural icon in American memory from two perspectives. First, she examines him as a historical leader, one who carefully and intentionally built his public image. Focusing on FDR’s use of media and his negotiation of the world as a disabled person, she shows how he consistently aligned himself with modernity and future-proof narratives and modes of rhetoric. Second, Polak looks at portrayals and negotiations of the FDR icon in cultural memory from the vantage point of the early twenty-first century.

EASTWARD OF GOOD HOPE Early America in a Dangerous World




How did news from the East shape early Americans’ understanding of the world as a map of dangerous and incoherent sites? Focusing on four representative arenas—the Ottoman Empire, China, India, and the Great South Sea— Eastward of Good Hope recasts the relationship between America and the world by examining the early years of the republic, when its national character was particularly pliable and its foundational posture in the world was forming. Drawing on recent scholarship in global ethnohistory, Dane A. Morrison recounts how reports of cannibal encounters, shipboard massacres, shipwrecks, tropical fever, and other tragedies in distant seas led Americans to imagine each region as a distinct set of threats to their republic. He also demonstrates how the concept of justification through self-doubt allowed for aggressive expansionism and for the foundations of imperialism to develop. DANE A.

The first comprehensive and definitive history of Brazil’s decision to give up the nuclear weapon option. Why do countries capable of “going nuclear” choose not to? Brazil, which gained notoriety for developing a nuclear program and then backtracking into adherence to the nonproliferation regime, offers a fascinating window into the complex politics surrounding nuclear energy and American interference. Since the beginning of the nuclear age, author Carlo Patti writes, Brazil has tried to cooperate with other countries in order to master nuclear fuel cycle technology, but international limitations have constrained the country’s approach. Patti draws on recently declassified primary sources collected during years of research in public and private archives in eight different countries, as well as interviews with former presidents, diplomats, and scientists, to show how US nonproliferation policies deeply affected Brazil’s decisions. CARLO PATTI (GOIÂNIA, BR) is a professor of international relations at the Federal University of Goiás.

A comparative global history of Mennonites from the ground up.

MENNONITE FARMERS A Global History of Place and Sustainability ROYDEN LOEWEN Mennonite farmers can be found in dozens of countries spanning five continents. In this comparative world-scale environmental history, Royden Loewen draws on a multi-year study of seven geographically distinctive Anabaptist communities around the world, focusing on Mennonite farmers in Bolivia, Canada, Indonesia, the Netherlands, Russia, the United States, and Zimbabwe. These farmers, who include Amish, Brethren in Christ, and Siberian Baptists, till the land in starkly distinctive climates. They absorb very disparate societal lessons while being shaped by particular faith outlooks, historical memory, and the natural environment. The book reveals the ways in which modern-day Mennonite farmers have adjusted to diverse temperatures, precipitation, soil types, and relative degrees of climate change. These farmers have faced broad global forces of modernization during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, from commodity markets and intrusive governments to technologies marked increasingly by the mechanical, chemical, and genetic. As Mennonites, Loewen writes, these farmers were raised with knowledge of the historic Anabaptist teachings on community, simplicity, and peace that stood alongside ideas on place and sustainability. Nonetheless, conditioned by gender, class, ethnicity, race, and local values, they put their agricultural ideas into practice in remarkably diverse ways. Based on more than 150 interviews and close textual analysis of memoirs, newspapers, and sermons, Mennonite Farmers is a pioneering work that brings faith into conversation with the land in distinctive ways.

Theatrical Representations in the Long Eighteenth Century

Self-Help and Victorian Literature


A revelatory history of the characters that playwrights and managers created out of the real lives of women. During the eighteenth century, Great Britain was almost continuously at war. As the era unfolded, the theatre gradually discovered the potential in having actresses, recently introduced to the stage in the 1660s, perform. Paula R. Backscheider’s Women in Wartime is the first study of theatrical representations of women with intimate connections to military men. Drawing upon her extensive expertise in gender, performance studies, popular culture, and archival studies, Backscheider explicates more than fifty plays as both entertainment and as ideological and propagandistic vehicles in times of severe crises. Debunking sexual stereotypes and focusing on popular roles and tropes, Backscheider adds a dimension to theatrical history that substantially contributes to women’s and military histories. PAULA R. BACKSCHEIDER (AUBURN, AL) is the Pepperell-Philpott Eminent Scholar in English at Auburn University. She is the author of


What the Victorian history of self-help reveals about the myth of individualism. Stories of hardworking characters who lift themselves from rags to riches abound in the Victorian era. From the popularity of such stories, it is clear that the Victorians valorized personal ambition in ways that previous generations had not. In Material Ambitions, Rebecca Richardson explores this phenomenon in light of the under-studied reception history of Samuel Smiles’s 1859 publication, Self-Help: With Illustrations of Character, Conduct, and Perseverance. A compilation of vignettes about captains of industry, artists, and inventors who persevered through failure and worked tirelessly to achieve success in their respective fields, Self-Help links individual ambition to the growth of the nation. Intertwining the methodologies of disability studies and ecocriticism, Material Ambitions persuasively unmasks the longstanding myth that ambitious individualism can overcome disadvantageous systematic and structural conditions.

Poland, Ireland, and Theories of World Literature

The End of the World in Greek and Roman Thought



To develop a theory of world literature, this book demands that the theory of the novel can no longer ignore literary forms other than realism. In Estranging the Novel, Katarzyna Bartoszyńska explores how the emergence of world literature studies has challenged the centrality of British fiction to theories of the novel’s rise. She argues that a historicist approach frequently reinforces the realist paradigm that has cast other traditions as “minor,” conceding a normative vision of the novel as it seeks to explain why historical forces produced different forms elsewhere. Recasting the standard narrative by looking at different novelistic literary forms, including the Gothic, travel writing, and queer fiction, Bartoszyńska offers a compelling comparative study of Polish and Irish works published across the nineteenth century that emphasize fictionality. Estranging the Novel paves the way for a diverse understanding of the makeup of contemporary world literature and the many texts it encompasses.

How did the ancient Greeks and Romans envision the end of the world? What is the long-term future of the human race? What role do the gods, human morality, and the forces of nature play in bringing about the end of the world? In Apocalypse and Golden Age, Christopher Star reveals the answers that Greek and Roman authors gave to these questions. The first large-scale investigation of the various scenarios for the end of the world in classical texts, this book reveals that key thinkers often viewed their world as shaped by catastrophe. Star shows how this theme was explored over the centuries in the works of poets, such as Hesiod, Vergil, and Ovid, and by philosophers, including the Presocratics, Plato, Epicurus, and Seneca. These scenarios address the ultimate limits that define human life and institutions, and place humanity in the long perspective of cosmic and natural history.

How did an ordinary, if intelligent, boy who wrote unremarkable poems become—with no help and in record time—the author of one of the most significant and beloved poems of the twentieth century?

BECOMING T. S. ELIOT The Rhetoric of Voice and Audience in Inventions of the March Hare JAYME STAYER T. S. Eliot’s juvenilia were written by an adolescent who showed little inclination to question the social, cultural, religious, or domestic values he had inherited. By contrast, the poems of his early maturity were written by a roiling, divided self—enraged and poised, sarcastic and self-conscious, urbane and anguished. How did a young man transform himself—in a mere twenty months—into the author of “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock”? In Becoming T. S. Eliot, Jayme Stayer explains this staggering accomplishment by tracing Eliot’s artistic and intellectual development. Relying on archival research and original analysis, this is the first book dedicated entirely to Inventions of the March Hare, Eliot’s youthful notebook, which was once thought lost but rediscovered after Eliot’s death. Stayer places Eliot’s verses in the chronological order of their composition, teasing out the narratives of their making. Using the tools of rhetoric, he shows how the earliest poems begin as garbled performances. But triumphs soon appear as Eliot gains control of his materials, shifting with trademark ease between tonal registers, masterfully constructing a sympathetic audience, and broaching daring themes. Focusing on the period from 1909 to 1915, this incisive portrait of Eliot as a budding writer is as much a study of Eliot himself as it is a study of how a writer hones his voice.

Modernist literature at the end of the British empire challenges conventional notions of homeland, heritage, and community.

THE OBSOLETE EMPIRE Untimely Belonging in Twentieth-Century British Literature PHILIP TSANG The waning British empire left behind an abundance of material relics and an inventory of feelings not easily relinquished. In The Obsolete Empire, Philip Tsang brings together an unusual constellation of writers—Henry James, James Joyce, Doris Lessing, and V. S. Naipaul—to trace an aesthetics of frustrated attachment that emerged in the wake of imperial decline. Caught between an expansive Britishness and an exclusive Englishness, these writers explored what it meant to belong to an empire that did not belong to them. Thanks to their voracious reading of English fiction and poetry in their formative years, all of these writers experienced a richly textured world with which they deeply identified but from which they felt excluded. The literary England they imagined, frozen in time and out of place with the realities of imperial decline, in turn figures in their writings as a repository of unconsummated attachments, contradictory desires, and belated exchanges. Drawing on a rich body of scholarship on affect and temporality, Tsang demonstrates how the British empire endures as a structure of desire that outlived its political life span. By showing how literary reading sets in motion a tense interplay of intimacy and exclusion, Tsang investigates a unique mode of belonging arising from the predicament of being conscripted into a global empire but not desired as its proper citizen. Ultimately, The Obsolete Empire asks: What does it mean to be inside or outside any given culture? How does literary reading establish or unsettle narratives of who we are? PHILIP TSANG (DALLAS, TX) is an assistant professor of English at Colorado State University.

American Intellectuals, Modern Literature, and the Rewriting of a Political Tradition

An Aesthetics of Theater JOSEPH CERMATORI


A revisionist history of American liberalism. In Making Liberalism New, Ian Afflerbach traces the rise, revision, and fall of a modern liberalism in the United States, establishing this intellectual culture as distinct from classical predecessors as well as the neoliberalism that came to power by the twentieth century’s end. Drawing on a diverse archive that includes political philosophy, legal texts, studies of moral psychology, government propaganda, and presidential campaign materials, Afflerbach also delves into works by Tess Slesinger, Richard Wright, John Dewey, and Vladimir Nabokov. Throughout the book, he shows how a reciprocal pattern of influence between modernist literature and liberal intellectuals helped drive the remarkable writing and rewriting of this keyword in American political life. Drawing together political theory and literary history, Making Liberalism New argues that the rise of American liberal culture helped direct the priorities of modern literature. IAN AFFLERBACH (GAINESVILLE, GA) is an assistant professor of American literature at the University of North Georgia.

The convincingly modern relevance of the baroque. Baroque style might seem incompatible with the dominant forms of art since the Industrial Revolution, but between 1875 and 1935, European and American modernists connected to the theater became fascinated with it. In Baroque Modernity, Joseph Cermatori argues that the memory of seventeenth-century baroque stages helped produce new forms of theater, space, and experience around the turn of the twentieth century. In response, modern theater helped give rise to the development of the baroque as a modern philosophical idea. The book focuses on avant-gardists whose writing takes place between theory and performance: theatrical philosophers including Friedrich Nietzsche, Stéphane Mallarmé, Walter Benjamin, and Gertrude Stein. This study tracks the remnants of seventeenth-century theater through modernist aesthetics across an array of otherwise disparate materials, including modern opera, Bertolt Brecht’s Epic Theatre, poetic tragedies, and miracle plays. JOSEPH CERMATORI (SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY) is an assistant professor of English at Skidmore College.

AUTOMATIC Literary Modernism and the Politics of Reflex TIMOTHY WIENTZEN


A fascinating study of how behavioral science shaped twentieth-century politics and the modernist literary period.

What might behaviorism, that debunked school of psychology, tell us about literature? If inanimate objects such as novels or poems have no mental properties of their own, then why do we talk about them as if they do? In Behaviorism, Consciousness, and the Literary Mind, Joshua Gang offers a radical new approach to this question, which is among the most challenging philosophical problems faced by literary study today. Turning to one of the twentieth century’s most infamous psychological doctrines—behaviorism—Gang offers the first sustained examination of the outmoded science’s place in twentieth-century literature and criticism. Through innovative readings of figures such as I. A. Richards, the American New Critics, Samuel Beckett, Harold Pinter, and J. M. Coetzee, Behaviorism, Consciousness, and the Literary Mind reveals important convergences between modernist writers, experimental psychology, and analytic philosophy of mind. JOSHUA GANG (BERKELEY, CA) is an assistant professor of English at the University of California, Berkeley.

The advent of the twentieth century famously brought about new personal and political freedoms, including radical changes in voting rights and expressions of gender and sexuality. Yet writers and cultural critics shared a sense that modern life reduced citizens to automatons capable of interacting with the world in only the most reflexive ways. In Automatic, Timothy Wientzen asks why modernists were deeply anxious about the role of reflexive behaviors—and the susceptibility of bodies to physical stimuli—in the new political structures of the twentieth century. Engaging with historical thinking about human behaviors that fundamentally changed the nature of political and literary practice, Wientzen demonstrates the ways in which a “politics of reflex” came to shape the intellectual and cultural life of the modernist era. TIMOTHY WIENTZEN (BALLSTON SPA, NY) is an assistant professor of English at Skidmore College.

A vital text for understanding the twenty-first-century battlefield and the shifting force structure, this book prepares students to think critically about the rapidly changing world they’ll inherit.


foreword by David Kilcullen preface by Brigadier General Cheryl Kearney (Ret.) introduction by General Joseph F. Dunford Jr. (Ret.) American Defense Policy, first published in 1965 under the leadership of Brent Scowcroft, has been a mainstay in courses on political science, international relations, military affairs, and American national security for more than 50 years. This updated and thoroughly revised ninth edition, which contains about 30% all-new content, considers questions of continuity and change in America’s defense policy in the face of a global climate beset by geopolitical tensions, rapid technological change, and terrorist violence. The book is organized into three parts. Part I examines the theories and strategies that shape America’s approach to security policy. Part II dives inside the defense policy process, exploring the evolution of contemporary civil-military relations, the changing character of the profession of arms, and the issues and debates in the budgeting, organizing, and equipping process. Part III examines how purpose and process translate into American defense policy. This invaluable and prudent text remains a classic introduction to the vital security issues the United States has faced throughout its history. It breaks new ground as a thoughtful and comprehensive starting point to understand American defense policy and its role in the world today. Praise for previous editions

“This book is an attempt to assemble in one volume a representative selection of the recent extensive American writings on defense matters; it succeeds brilliantly and, in a field in which the student and the policy-maker can equally become bogged down in the sheer volume of words, its editors have done a commendable service by concise compilation.”—International Affairs MIRIAM KRIEGER, LYNNE CHANDLER GARCIA, JOHN RILEY, and WILL ATKINS (COLORADO SPRINGS, CO) are faculty from the Department of Political Science at the US Air Force Academy.

Lopez’s style is revolutionary.

2020 International Latino Book Awards Winner: First Place, Mariposa Award for Best First Book, Nonfiction

SEPARATED Family and Community in the Aftermath of an Immigration Raid WILLIAM D. LOPEZ

foreword by Ruth Behar, author of The Vulnerable Observer new foreword by Former US Secretary of HUD Julián Castro In Separated, William D. Lopez examines the lasting damage done by a daylong act of collaborative immigration enforcement in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Exploring the chaos of enforcement through the lens of community health, Lopez discusses deportation’s rippling negative effects on families, communities, and individuals. Focusing on those left behind, Lopez reveals their efforts to cope with trauma, avoid homelessness, handle worsening health, and keep their families together as they attempt to deal with a deportation machine that is militarized, traumatic, implicitly racist, and profoundly violent.

“Lopez’s book is one of the most powerful examples to date of an academic using deep study and radical empathy to indict a profoundly evil system.”—New Republic “Lopez’s style is revolutionary. He demonstrates that an alleged criminal can be a complex human with complex human connections . . . [His] book short circuits narratives at the root of racist policies—about good vs. bad immigrants, legal vs. illegal people—by honoring the complex web around the sinners. When brown sinners are outlawed, their loved ones become prey, too.”­—Jean Guerrero WILLIAM D. LOPEZ (ANN ARBOR, MI) is a clinical assistant professor at the School of Public Health and a faculty associate in the Latina/o Studies Program at the University of Michigan.

As a “medical detective,” Guinan presents a series of case studies in explicit homage to super-sleuth Sherlock Holmes.


with Anne D. Mather When Mary Guinan, PhD, MD learned that NASA’s astronaut program wasn’t recruiting women, she went to medical school and became a disease detective with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Epidemic Intelligence Service. Guinan weaves together twelve vivid stories of her life in medicine, describing her individual experiences in controlling outbreaks, researching new diseases, and caring for patients the world over. Occasionally heartbreaking, sometimes hilarious, Guinan’s account of her pathbreaking career will inspire public health students and future medical detectives.

COVID-19 has placed American higher education at a crossroads. This book is the roadmap.


with a new preface COVID-19 triggered an existential crisis for American higher education. Faced with few safe choices, most colleges and universities switched to remote learning during the 2020 spring semester. The future, however, provides more choices about how institutions can fulfill their mission of teaching and research. But how do we begin to make decisions in an uncertain and shifting environment? In this concise guide, authors Edward J. Maloney and Joshua Kim lay out clear ways colleges and universities can move forward in safe and effective ways. The Low-Density University presents fifteen scenarios for how colleges and universities can address the current crisis from a fully online semester to others with students in residence and in the classroom. How can changing the calendar or shifting to hybrid models of blended classrooms impact teaching, learning, and the college experience? Could we emerge from this crisis with new models that are better and more adapted to today's world? The Low-Density University focuses primarily on teaching and learning, but student life (housing, athletics, health, etc.) are core to the college experience. Can we devise safe and effective ways to preserve the best of that experience? The lessons here extend beyond the classroom. Just as the pandemic will change American higher education, the choices we make now will change what college looks like for generations to come. EDWARD J. MALONEY (WASHINGTON, DC) is a professor of English at Georgetown University, where he is the executive director of the Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship and the founding director of the Program in Learning, Design, and Technology.

Indispensable volume of previously unavailable poetry by an American master.

BE BRAVE TO THINGS The Uncollected Poetry and Plays of Jack Spicer JACK SPICER edited by DANIEL KATZ Be Brave to Things shows legendary San Francisco Renaissance poet Jack Spicer at the top of his form, with his blistering intelligence, painful double-edged wit, and devastating will to truth everywhere on display. Most of the poetry here has never before been published, but the volume also includes much out-of-print or hard to find work, as well as Spicer’s three major plays, which have never been collected. Here one finds major unfinished projects, early and alternate versions of well-known Spicer poems, shimmering stand-alone lyrics, and intricate extended “books” and serial poems. This new cache of Spicer material will be indispensable for any student of 20th century American LGBTQ+ poetry, proffering a trove of primary material for Spicer’s growing readership to savor and enjoy.

“Have you read a poet and suddenly feel the shoulders you stand on? Jack Spicer does this to many of us, and now there are more poems! Oh, more treasure!”—CAConrad JACK SPICER (1925–1965) was an American poet often identified with the San Francisco Renaissance. In 2009, My Vocabulary Did This to Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer won the American Book Award for poetry. DANIEL KATZ (LEAMINGTON SPA, ENGLAND) is professor of English at the University of Warwick.

Elegiac and searching, poems written in the long shadow of immigration.

Poetry by WENDY XU The poems in Wendy Xu’s third collection, The Past, fantasize uneasily about becoming a palatable lyric record of their namesake, while ultimately working to disrupt this Westernized desire. Born in Shandong, China, in 1987, Wendy Xu immigrated to the United States in 1989, three days ahead of the events of Tian’anmen Square. The Past probes the multi-generational binds of family, displacement, and immigration as an ongoing psychic experience without end. Moving spontaneously between lyric, fragment, prose, and subversions in “traditional” Chinese forms, the book culminates in a centerpiece series of “Tian’anmen Square sonnets” (and their subsequent erasures), to conjure up the irrepressible past, and ultimately imagine a new kind of poem: at once code and confession.

Tian’anmen Sonnet (dead air in air ... ) Dead air in air The anniversary of language holds you back against bucolic dreaming, down stream from here is running a miraculous color, elegy bursts like a ribbon in air Thinking again of the Square today Bold sky, passing episodes of cloud Vegetation mutters in the Far West A column of ghosts going violet over time Familiar song looping overhead Lines pressed in air

“The Past shows us how the natural world tells of a shared history and language long after the traumas of revolution and immigration.” —Wendy S. Walters, author of Multiply/ Divide WENDY XU (BROOKLYN, NY) is the author of Phrasis, named one of the 10 Best Poetry Books of 2017 by the New York Times Book Review. She teaches writing at the New School

and serves as Poetry Editor for the arts magazine Hyperallergic.

Volume 2 An innovative suite of poems for the drone age.

The Blue Split Compartments is a complex and powerful sequence of lyric poems exploring the relationships between military drone operators and their victims. Drawing on chatroom logs, military policy manuals, pattern of life archives, and accounts by witnesses around the world, these poems document the consequences of the perpetual and ‘everywhere war.’ With its sophisticated interplay of diction, rhetoric, syntax, positioning, allusion, and sonic quality, this book offers a linguistically virtuosic and deeply humane x-ray of the discursive and militaristic systems that join us in mutual dissolution. ANDREA BRADY (HACKNEY, UK) is an American poet and lecturer at Queen Mary University of London. She is the author of seven books of poetry including The Strong Room and three books of criticism including Poetry and Bondage: A History and Theory of Lyric Constraint.

Hip Hop Dance, Bodies, Race, and Power

Five Decades of Dance Making at the National Endowment for the Arts


Theorizing the experiences of Black and Brown bodies in Hip Hop Dance. Baring Unbearable Sensualities brings together a bold methodology, an interdisciplinary perspective and a rich array of primary sources to deepen and complicate mainstream understandings of Hip Hop Dance, an Afro-diasporic dance form, which have generally reduced the style to a set of techniques divorced from social contexts. Drawing on close observation and interviews with Hip Hop pioneers and their students, Rosemarie A. Roberts proposes that Hip Hop Dance is a collective and sentient process of resisting oppressive manifestations of race and power. Roberts argues that the experiences of marginalized Black and Brown bodies materialize in and through Hip Hop Dance from the streets of urban centers to contemporary worldwide expressions. A companion web site contains over 30 video clips referenced in the text. ROSEMARIE A. ROBERTS (NEW LONDON, CT) is a professor of dance at Connecticut College.


How NEA funding policies have shaped the field of dance. Funding Bodies is the first scholarly study of NEA to focus specifically on dance, and seeks to show how federal grant guidelines have rewarded specific patterns of dance practice and production. Drawing upon archival documentation of NEA narratives, program eligibility guidelines, and standards of evaluation as well as testimony from past and present insiders, Sarah Wilbur’s work theorizes endowment as an economic and practical struggle by people with differential power and competing investments in the production and professionalization of dance. With a wealth of detail and previously untold stories, this institutional history brings clarity to the complex processes that underlie the continuing struggle to achieve equitable resource distribution and parity of opportunity in American dance.

Vocal Striving and Moral Contestation in North India and Beyond

Professional Musicians and the Capital of Afro-Brazil JEFF PACKMAN


An ethnography about local working musicians in Brazil’s “most African” city.

An exploration of ethical dynamism in vocal life. Ways of Voice is the first ethnomusicological monograph to delve deeply into the diverse, variegated techniques of voice production in North India, from Bollywood film singers to modern raga vocality to pop Sufi song. It considers the dynamic movement between vocal dispositions—singers who consciously retrain themselves in order to acquire a different voice, focusing on the ways in which singers actively acquire, cultivate and contest particular vocal dispositions. Working from dozens of concrete examples, it fills an important gap both in South Asian ethnomusicology and in the emerging field of voice studies. Audio and video examples are provided on the online companion site.

Living from Music in Salvador examines the labor of musicians in Salvador da Bahia, widely regarded as Brazil’s most African city. Drawing on fieldwork that spans over sixteen years, the book explores local musicians’ lives as members of a flexible work force, emphasizing questions of race, social class, and cultural politics in relation to professional music making. From clubs and restaurants, to Carnaval parades and festival celebrations, to concert stages and recordings, the ability of musicians to earn a living wage is contingent on their navigating industry and societal conditions that are profoundly informed by the entrenched legacies of colonization and slavery.

He won numerous awards, including the Neustadt International Prize for Literature and the Griffin Poetry Prize. A retired professor of comparative literature at New York University, Brathwaite lived in CowPastor, Barbados.




Winner of the Griffin International Poetry Prize (2006).

Deeply felt requiems from an internationally celebrated poet.

A mystical masterwork.





This award-winning book is comprised of a series of poetic meditations on islands and exile, language and ritual, and the force of personal and historical passions and griefs. These poems are haunted, figuratively and literally, by spirits of the African diaspora and drenched in the colors, sounds, and rhythms of the islands. But they also encompass the world of the exile and return, and the events of 9/11 in New York City.

Elegguas—a play on “elegy” and “Eleggua,” the Yoruba deity of the threshold, doorway, and crossroad—is a collection of poems for the departed. Elegguas draws together traditions of speaking with the dead, from Rilke’s Duino Elegies to the Jamaican kumina practice of bringing down spirits of the dead to briefly inhabit the bodies of the faithful, so that the ancestors may provide spiritual assistance and advice to those here on earth.

ERNEST HEBERT Howard Elman is a man whose internal landscape is as disordered as his front yard, where native New Hampshire birches and maples mingle with a bullet-riddled washer, abandoned bathroom fixtures, and several junk cars. Howard is enmeshed within the class conflict between Granite Staters and those with “college degrees and big bank accounts.” Cited for excellence in 1980 by the Hemingway Foundation (now the Pen Faulkner Award for Fiction), The Dogs of March explores the parafictional world of Darby, New Hampshire.

The second novel of the Darby Chronicles follows Ollie Jordan, a man with no education, no mentors, and a serious Freudian hang-up. A family history of poverty, stubborn pride, and a culture that runs contrary to mainstream society have robbed Ollie and his people of opportunity, even hope. Though A Little More Than Kin is action-packed, at its heart, the book explores the human psyche at its most perverse.

HIKING THE HORIZONTAL Field Notes from a Choreographer


HOWARD ELMAN’S FAREWELL The Darby Chronicles #7

LIZ LERMAN, Read by the Author

An award-winning choreographer shares insights and methods for making real art in the real world.

ERNEST HEBERT Part Falstaff, part King Lear, but all American, Howard Elman was a fifty-something workingman when he burst onto the literary scene in The Dogs of March, the first novel of the Darby Chronicles. Now in this, its seventh installment, the Darby constable is an eighty-something widower who wants to do “a great thing” before he motors off into the sunset. Howard Elman’s Farewell begins as a coming of (old) age story, morphs into a murder mystery, expands into a family saga, and in the end might just follow Howard Elman into the spirit world.

An Account of an Ongoing Personal Discourse and Its Manifestations in Dance

An ldeokinetic Basis for Movement Education JOHN ROLLAND


Classic and canonical text by one of the United States’ most important postmodern choreographers. This artist’s book details the creative life of a choreographer and performer coming of age in the 1960s. Combining drawings, “dance reports,” and documentary materials such as scores, descriptions, letters to colleagues, and photographic records of performances, Simone Forti’s eye toward creating idioms for exploring natural forms and behaviors is evident throughout.

Classic and canonical text in dance therapy, kineseology. Inside Motion is a comprehensive study of anatomical imagery based on the Todd-Clark body alignment work as developed by dancer and teacher John Rolland. Carefully organized as a learning manual, it comprises a complete description of the skeletal system. The basic goal of the work is the improvement of one’s physical balance through a creative learning process that integrates mental and physical capacities. Students are guided to both think and feel their way through the body and, in the process, release layers of hidden kinesthetic information.

But when her roommate goes missing, Wendy plunges into an investigation that is roadblocked by vainglorious professors, specious doctors, and dubious friends. As time runs out, Wendy is forced to separate shades of suspicion amidst a swirling and uncontrollable mania, leaving her with startling lessons on what it means to persevere when everyone is seemingly against you.

Because I Have To shares an intimate account of Jewher’s fight for her father and the emotional toll it took on her. With the inclusion of testimonials of Uyghur camp survivors and others affected by the crackdown on Uyghurs in China, the book explores the story of an entire culture under threat.

When some divine gifts fall into decidedly earthly hands, the results are almost beyond reckoning for humans and gods both. Through its wide cast of characters and fascinating settings, terrestrial, divine, or somewhere in-between, Mayhar A.

Contemporary Austrian Studies



Illustrates the centrality of colonialism in the history of the Americas and how decolonizing efforts and postcolonial processes continue to impact the Western Hemisphere. Colonialism has deeply informed cultural production and popular culture in the Americas. Jazz, blues, rock music and hip-hop have given voice to the experience of ethnic and racial exclusion and Latin America’s boom literature is informed by ‘magic’ indigenous-colonial cosmovisions. Ethnic and racial struggles against quota systems and/or autoethnographic media productions are integral parts of the fight against the negative aspects of the colonial legacy. This collection illustrates the centrality of colonialism in the history of the Americas and the wide range of areas in which decolonizing efforts and postcolonial processes continue to impact the Western Hemisphere. THE INTER-AMERICAN STUDIES SERIES creates a forum for a critical dialogue between North and South on the cultures, societies, and histories of the Americas, promoting an inter-American paradigm that shifts the scholarly focus from methodological nationalism to the wider context of the Western Hemisphere.

Visual histories in 19th and 20th century Austria—from court photography and nature photography to political photography. Visual histories in 19th and 20th century Austria are documented here, from court photography and nature photography to political photography. A single photo studio will be analyzed documenting lives in Western Austria as well as a photo archive and its special collections regarding mountains.

Photos of wars figure heavily in this volume, from the brutal fighting in the Dolomites during WWI to National Socialism, concentration camps and the air war during WWII.

Based on real events of the French Resistance during World War II, Édith Thomas’s stories explore how ordinary people respond to the extraordinary conditions of political occupation. The stories, first published under the title Contes d’Auxois (Auxois Stories) by an underground press in 1943, were written to oppose Vichy-Nazi propaganda and to offer encouragement to civilians who felt resigned to defeat. Whether lining up to wait for food, tuning in to a forbidden radio broadcast, adapting to living side by side with German soldiers, or preparing for an act of sabotage, the characters in these stories must make

choices in highly compromised circumstances on a daily basis. As the characters confront their own suffering and that of others, their actions inspire readers to consider the nature of heroism, the idea that people can share a common humanity with their enemies, and the possibility for individuals to find solidarity in an overwhelming, isolating world. É DITH THOMAS (1909–70) was a French Resistance member and a founder

of the then clandestine publishing house Éditions de Minuit. A novelist, poet, short story writer, prolific journalist, and National Archives curator, Thomas helped establish women’s history as a legitimate discipline in France.

Although Renée Vivien led a life of wealth and privilege in belle epoque Paris, she often felt like an outsider because she was attracted to other women. Financially secure, she wrote books to suit her own taste rather than that of the literary market. The Woman with the Wolf (La dame à la louve), from 1904, shows her at the height of her powers. These fierce, surprising stories challenge moral hypocrisy and normative views about gender, beginning with the title work, which offers a coded representation of same-sex love in the seemingly inexplicable commitment between a woman and her canine companion. The

REN É E VIVIEN (1877–1909) is the pen name of Pauline Mary Tarn, born to wealthy Anglo-American parents in London in 1877. Raised in Paris, she wrote mainly in French and published numerous books of poetry

and prose, beginning with Études et préludes in 1901. A pioneer in the unapologetic expression of same-sex love, she died in 1909.

French neoclassical tragedy’s audiences, performance practice, and development as a genre.

Structurally innovative, culturally expansive works that rethink genre paradigms and national traditions.

Tragedy has been reborn many times since antiquity. Seventeenth-century French playwrights composed tragedies marked by neoclassical aesthetics and the divine-right absolutism of the grand siècle. But their works also speak to the modern imagination, inspiring reactions from Barthes, Derrida, and Foucault, adaptations and reworkings by Césaire and Kushner, and new productions by francophone and anglophone directors. This volume addresses both the history of French neoclassical tragedy— its audiences, performance practice, and development as a genre—and the ideas these works raise, such as necessity, free will, desire, power, and moral behavior in the face of limited choices. Essays demonstrate ways to teach the plays through a variety of lenses, such as performance, spectatorship, aesthetics, rhetoric, and affect. The book also explores postcolonial engagement, by writers and directors both in and outside France.

Structurally innovative and culturally expansive, the works of Karen Tei Yamashita invite readers to rethink conventional paradigms of genres and national traditions. Her novels, plays, and other texts refashion forms like the immigrant tale, the postmodern novel, magical realism, apocalyptic literature, and the picaresque and suggest new transnational, hemispheric, and global frameworks for interpreting Asian American literature. The essays in this volume address courses in American studies, contemporary fiction, environmental humanities, and literary theory. Part 1, “Materials,” outlines Yamashita’s novels and other texts, key works of criticism and theory, and resources for Asian American and Asian Brazilian literature and culture. Part 2, “Approaches,” provides options for exploring Yamashita’s works through teaching historical debates, outlining principles of environmental justice, mapping geographic boundaries to highlight power dynamics, and drawing personal connections to the texts. Additionally, an essay by Yamashita describes her own approaches to teaching creative writing.

MLA HANDBOOK, NINTH EDITION THE MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA Relied on by generations of writers, the MLA Handbook is published by the Modern Language Association and is the only official, authorized book on MLA style. The new, ninth edition builds on the MLA’s unique approach to documenting sources using a template of core elements—facts, common to most sources, like author, title, and publication date—that allows writers to cite any type of work, from books, e-books, and journal articles in databases to song lyrics, online images, social media posts, dissertations, and more. With this focus on source evaluation as the cornerstone of citation, MLA style promotes the skills of information and digital literacy so crucial today. The many new and updated chapters make this edition the comprehensive, go-to resource for writers of research papers, and anyone citing sources, from business writers, technical writers, and freelance writers and editors to student writers and the teachers and librarians working with them. Intended for a variety of classroom contexts—middle school, high school, and college courses in composition, communication, literature, language arts, film, media studies, digital humanities, and related fields. Founded in 1883, the MODERN LANGUAGE ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA provides opportunities for its members to share their scholarly findings and teaching experiences with colleagues.

IMPACT Women Writing After Concussion edited by E. D. MORIN and JANE CAWTHORNE

The anthology bears witness to the painstaking work that goes into redefining identity and regaining creative practice after a traumatic event. By sharing their complex, non-linear, and sometimes incomplete healing journeys, these women convey the magnitude of a disability which is often doubted, overlooked, and trivialized, in part because of its invisibility. Showcasing a diversity of women’s stories, Impact offers compassion and empathy to all readers and families healing from concussion and other types of trauma. E. D. MORIN (CALGARY/MOHKÍNSTSIS, ALBERTA) is a winner of the Brenda Strathern Writing Prize. Her experience with concussion is documented in an online graphic story on Empathize This. JANE CAWTHORNE (TORONTO/TKARONTO, ONTARIO) writes about women on the brink of transformation. She is a feminist activist and former women’s studies instructor. Together, they edited the literary anthology Writing Menopause.

Ken Haigh explores the historical and literary landscape of the Pilgrims’ Way in southern England.


“My father didn’t need this walk, not the way I do. For him it would have been a fun way to spend some time with his son. He had, I begin to realize, a talent for living in the moment. Perhaps a pilgrimage would help me find happiness. Perhaps I could walk my way into a better frame of mind, and somewhere along the road to Canterbury I would find a new purpose for my life. It was worth a shot.” Setting off on foot from Winchester, Ken Haigh hikes across southern England, retracing a traditional route that medieval pilgrims followed to the shrine of Saint Thomas Becket at Canterbury Cathedral. Walking in honour of his father, a staunch Anglican who passed away before they could begin their trip together, Haigh wonders: Is there a place in the modern secular world for pilgrimage? On his journey, he sorts through his own spiritual aimlessness, while crossing paths with writers like Trollope, Keats, Austen, Swift, Dickens, and, of course, Chaucer. On Foot to Canterbury is part travelogue, part memoir, part literary history, and all heart. KEN HAIGH (CLARKSBURG, ONTARIO) has written one other travel memoir, Under the Holy Lake:

A Memoir of Eastern Bhutan (University of Alberta Press). He has worked as a teacher and librarian.

LeBlanc, Fred Mason, Brock McGillis, Vicky Paraschak, Brett Pardy, Ann Pegoraro, Kyle A. Rich, Tavis Smith, Noah Underwood Challenges and reconceptualizes North American hockey’s cultural norms.

Amber, Bev, Chantel, Jazmyne, Faith, and Jorgina are six Indigenous women previously involved in street gangs or the street lifestyle in Saskatoon, Regina, and Calgary. In collaboration with Indigenous Studies scholar Robert Henry (Métis), they share their stories using photovoice, a process where participants are understood to be the experts of their own experiences. Each photograph in the book was selected and placed in order to show how the authors have changed with their experiences. Following their photographs, the authors each share a narrative that begins with their earliest memory and continues to the present. Throughout, these women show us the meaning of survivance, a process of resistance, resurgence, and growth. AMBER, BEV, CHANTEL, JAZMYNE, FAITH, and JORGINA are survivors.

This engaging interdisciplinary collection seeks to shed light on narratives and research that challenge hockey’s norms, push its boundaries, and provide new ways of conceptualizing its role in North American culture. The volume’s editors use the metaphor of the neutral zone trap to explore how traditional ideologies and practices within the sport have contributed to the exclusion and misperception of various ways of existing in its community. For hockey fans and experts alike. CHERYL A. MacDONALD (HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA) is a sport sociologist

In this collection, researchers ana-lyze rural societies, economies, and governance in North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia across such varied domains as education, employment, and health through the lens of rights and citizenship. The provocative concept of a “right to be rural” illuminates not only the challenges faced by rural communities worldwide, but also under appreciated facets of community resilience in the face of these challenges. The book’s central question offers insights into how these communities are created, maintained, and challenged. The authors illustrate that citizenship rights have a spatial character, and that this observation is critical to studying and understanding rural life in the twenty-first century. KAREN R.

This historical novel is about two generations of the owners of the Visoko estate in the Duchy of Carniola, a predominantly Slovene province of the Habsburg Empire, in the seventeenth century.

THE VISOKO CHRONICLE IVAN TAVČAR This historical novel—Visoška kronika in the Slovene original—is about two generations of the owners of the Visoko estate in the Duchy of Carniola, a predominantly Slovene province of the Habsburg Empire, in the seventeenth century. The events of the estate and the fate of its owners are affected by witchcraft persecutions, the mistreatment of Protestants, and the Thirty Years’ War. These themes are key to the construction of a Slovene national identity, which was going through a decisive phase as Ivan Tavčar was writing. By the time the novel was released in 1919, his nation had left the Habsburg Crown for the new Kingdom of Serbs, Croats, and Slovenes. The work is both romantic and realistic. The deeply romantic motive of crime, repentance, and punishment intertwines the lives of father and son. The very acquisition of the estate is connected to a murder, which casts a long shadow over the next generation. Tavčar insists on the principle of man’s full responsibility for his acts, which can be repaired with action and determination. The author’s bleak realistic description of the farm life at Visoko reflects his polemical view of the Slovene farmer of his time. IVAN TAVČAR (1851–1923) was a Slovene writer and leading liberal politician. AUGUST 260 pages 5 x 8

Explores how two dominant stereotypes—”bad Gypsies” and “good Roma”—took hold in formal and informal educational institutions.

CONSTRUCTING IDENTITIES OVER TIME From “Bad Gypsies” to “Good Roma” in Russia and Hungary JEKATYERINA DUNAJEVA Jekatyerina Dunajeva explores how two dominant stereotypes—“bad Gypsies” and “good Roma”—took hold in formal and informal educational institutions in Russia and Hungary. She shows that over centuries “Gypsies” came to be associated with criminality, lack of education, and backwardness. The second notion, of proud, empowered, and educated “Roma,” is a more recent development The top-down view is complemented with the bottom-up attention to everyday Roma voices. Personal stories reveal how identities operate in daily life, as Dunajeva brings out hidden narratives and subaltern discourse. Her handling of fieldwork and self-reflexivity is a model of sensitive research with vulnerable groups. JEKATYERINA DUNAJEVA (BUDAPEST, HUNGARY) is Assistant Professor at the Department of Political Science, Pázmány Péter Catholic University.

Essays in Hungarian Jewish Gastronomical History

Domination and Everyday Life in East Central Europe after 1945


The seven essays focus such previously unexplored subjects as the world’s first cookbook printed in Hebrew letters and a wonderful 19th-century Jewish cookbook. The seven essays in this volume focus such previously unexplored subjects as the world’s first cookbook printed in Hebrew letters, published in 1854, and a wonderful 19th-century Jewish cookbook, which in addition to its Hungarian edition was also published in Dutch in Rotterdam. The author entertainingly reconstructs the history of bólesz, a legendary yeast pastry that was the specialty of a famous, but long defunct Jewish coffeehouse in Pest, and includes the modernized recipe of this distant relative of cinnamon rolls. András Koerner also tells the history of the first Jewish bookstore in Hungary, founded in 1765, and examines the influence of Jewish cuisine on non-Jewish food. In this volume key issues of Hungarian Jewish culinary culture are explored in greater detail and scholarly manner.

Empirically rich and conceptually original. How did political power function in the communist regimes of Central and Eastern Europe? This question is addressed with a focus on the acquiescent behavior of the majority of the population until their rejection of state socialism and its authoritarian world. The authors refer to the concept of Sinnwelt, the way in which groups and individuals made sense of the world around them. They focus on the dynamics of everyday life and the extent to which the relationship between citizens and the state was collaborative or antagonistic. Chapters address modernization, consumption and leisure, and the experiences of “ordinary people,” or those adopting alternative lifestyles.

WORDS IN SPACE AND TIME A Historical Atlas of Language Politics in Modern Central Europe TOMASZ KAMUSELLA

With extensively annotated maps, this atlas offers insights into the history and mechanics of how Central Europe’s languages have been made, unmade, and deployed for political action. With forty-two extensively annotated maps, this atlas offers novel insights into the history and mechanics of how Central Europe’s languages have been made, unmade, and deployed for political action. The innovative combination of linguistics, history, and cartography makes a wealth of hard-to-reach knowledge readily available to both specialist and general readers. It combines information on languages, dialects, alphabets, religions, mass violence, or migrations over an extended period of time. The story first focuses on Central Europe’s dialect continua, the emergence of states, and the spread of writing technology from the tenth century onward. The main storyline opens with the emergence of the Western European concept of the nation, in accord with which the ethnolinguistic nation-states of Italy and Germany were founded.

GROWING IN THE SHADOW OF ANTIFASCISM Remembering the Holocaust in Communist Eastern Europe edited by KATA BOHUS, PETER HALLAMA, and STEPHAN STACH

Ideology overshadowed the narrative about the Holocaust in the communist states of Eastern Europe. Reined into the service of the Cold War confrontation, antifascist ideology overshadowed the narrative about the Holocaust in the communist states of Europe. This led to the Western notion that in the Soviet Bloc there was a systematic suppression of the memory of the Nazi genocide. Going beyond disputing the mistaken opposition between “communist falsification” of history and the “repressed authentic” interpretation of the Jewish catastrophe, this work analyzes the ways as the Holocaust was conceptualized in the Soviet-ruled parts of Europe. The authors argue that the predominance of an antifascist agenda and the acknowledgment of the Jewish catastrophe were far from mutually exclusive.

THE MONEYWASTING MACHINE Five Months Inside Serbia’s Ministry of Economy DUŠAN PAVLOVIĆ

A penetrating diagnosis of Serbia’s economy in the post-communist government

The Carnegie Report on the Causes and Conduct of the Balkan Wars of 1912/13 edited by DIETMAR MÜLLER and STEFAN TROEBST

A thorough analysis of the making of the Carnegie Report. The authors reassess the Carnegie Report from a variety of perspectives. They connect southeastern European history, the military and diplomatic history of the Balkan Wars, and the historiographic strand called New International History. The report is considered from the perspective of the belligerent countries: how they handled the inquiries of the Carnegie Commission and how the report has come down as part of the remembrance of the wars. The analysis of the Carnegie Endowment, and of the commission members’ professional, political, and ethnic background explains the report’s conclusions considering the Ottoman Empire and the Balkan nation-states insufficiently civilized to wage wars within the limits of codes of conduct of international law. DIETMAR MÜLLER (LEIPZIG, GERMANY) is Historian of Comparative History of European Cultures and Societies at the University of Leipzig. STEFAN

For five months in 2013–2014 Dušan Pavlović accepted a senior position in Serbia’s Ministry of Economy. This short period was long enough for him to make a penetrating diagnosis of the economic activity of the post-communist government. He found that a coterie of tycoons and politicians live off the wealth of the majority of citizens and smaller entrepreneurs, while the economy performs below its capacities. In academic terms, extractive economic institutions create allocative inefficiency. Vivid, suggestive, and even entertaining accounts depict how privatization is administered and foreign investment projects are handled, and how party members, relatives, and friends are hired into public administration and state-owned companies. What Pavlović found in Serbia is acutely symptomatic of many other European post-communist regimes of our time. DUŠAN PAVLOVIĆ (BELGRADE, SERBIA) teaches political economy at the University of Belgrade.

National-Conservatives after World War II in Communist Hungary and Eastern Europe

Origins, Contexts, and the Future edited by DAVID R. MARPLES

edited by JÁNOS M. RAINER

The hidden attraction that existed between the extremes of left and right and of internationalism and nationalism under the decades of communist dictatorship in Eastern Europe. One might suppose that under the suppressive regimes based on leftist ideology and internationalism, their right-wing opponents would have been defeated and ultimately removed. These essays recount the itinerary of survival and revival of “right-wing” thought and activities under communist dictatorship. Resistance and accommodation are explored from the Stalinist era to the demise of the Soviet Bloc, with the continuity provided by tacit or concealed right-wing discourses receiving particular consideration. The Eastern European right, both in its conservative and fascist version, centered on nationalism, a legitimizing factor that increased with the downfall of the regimes, and the authors thus accord nationalism special attention. Two documentary sources are files of the security services and the exceptionally rich Oral History Archive compiled by the 1956 Institute in Hungary.

This collective work analyzes the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, providing a coherent picture of Ukraine and Eastern Europe in the period 2013–2020. The book goes beyond simplistic media interpretations that limit the analysis to Vladimir Putin and Russian aims to annex Ukraine. Instead, the authors identify the deeper roots linked to the autonomy and history of Donbas as a region. The contributions explore local society and traditions and the alienation from Ukraine caused by the events of Euromaidan, which saw the removal of the Donetskbased president Viktor Yanukovych. Chapters address the refugee crisis, the Minsk Accords in 2014 and the impact of president Volodymyr Zelensky and his efforts to bring the war to an end. The book concludes with proposals for a durable peace: territorial power-sharing; the conversion of rebels into legitimate political parties; amnesty for participants of the armed conflict; and a transitional period until political institutions are fully re-established.

SPIRIT POSSESSION Multidisciplinary Approaches to a Worldwide Phenomenon edited by ÉVA PÓCS and ANDRÁS ZEMPLÉNI

A look at spirit possession as a form of cultural communication. Possession, a seemingly irrational phenomenon, has posed challenges to generations of scholars rooted in Western notions of body-soul dualism, self and personhood, and a whole set of presuppositions inherited from Christian models of possession that was “good” or “bad.” The authors present a new approach. They conceive spirit possession as a form of expressivity, of culturally defined behavior that should be understood in the context of local, vernacular theories and empiric reflections. Anthropologists and historians working on several historical periods and in different cultural areas attempt to redefine the very concept of possession, freeing it from the Western notion of the self and clearly delineating it from related matters such as witchcraft, devotion, or mysticism. ÉVA PÓCS (PÉCS, HUNGARY) is Professor Emeritus at the University



How do we take stock of the state and direction of the world’s environment, and what can we learn from the experience? Among the myriad narratives about the condition of the planet, the Global Environment Outlook (GEO) reports stand out as the most ambitious. For three decades the GEO project has not only delivered iconic global assessment reports, but has inspired hundreds of similar processes worldwide. This book provides an inside account of the evolution of the GEO project. Building on meticulous research, including interviews with former heads of the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), diplomats, scientists, and senior leaders of collaborating organizations, the story is told from the perspective of five GEO veterans who all played a pivotal role in shaping the periodic assessments.

This is the story of an illustrious Romanianborn, Hungarian-speaking, Vienna-schooled, Columbia-educated and Harvard-formed, middle-class Jewish professor of politics.


Andrei S. Markovits revels in a rootlessness that offers him comfort, succor, and the inspiration for his life’s work. As we follow his quest to find a home, we encounter his engagement with the important political, social, and cultural developments of five decades on two continents. We learn about his musical preferences; his love of team sports; his devotion to dogs and their rescue. Above all, the book analyzes the travails of emigration the author experienced twice, moving from Romania to Vienna and then from Vienna to New York. Markovits’s Candide-like travels through the ups and downs of post-1945 Europe and America offer a panoramic view of key currents that shaped the second half of the twentieth century. By shedding light on the cultural similarities and differences between both continents, the book shows why America fascinated Europeans like Markovits and offered them a home that Europe never did: academic excellence, intellectual openness, cultural diversity and religious tolerance. America for Markovits was indeed the “beacon on the hill,” despite the ugliness of its racism, the prominence of its everyday bigotry, the severity of its growing economic inequality, and the presence of other aspects that mar this worthy experiment’s daily existence.
