272 PAGES • CLOTH 978-1-4798-9282-2 • $28.00 “In an important book that goes to the heart of issues at the forefront of contemporary life, Ferguson examines how police departments are now using supposedly ‘objective’ data-driven surveillance technologies to work more effectively in a budgetcutting era and to avoid claims of racial bias. . .. Essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how technology is changing American policing.” —STARRED Kirkus Review

“Branson brilliantly tackles the pervasive and ageold problem of gender inequality in the previously unexplored sector of tech. He does more than just identify what’s wrong. He also offers a comprehensive critique of old and new solutions and strategies, identifying those likely to positively impact the trajectory of this sector to make it one in which women thrive.” —Hannah Brenner, California Western School of Law

“Delgado and Stefancic are leading figures in the ‘critical race theory’ movement, a legal approach that sees law through the prism of race. They are, of course, correct in pointing to racial inequality in all areas of American life and to the abuse some minority students suffer at the hands of some insensitive white students.” —Alan M. Dershowitz, The Washington Post

“This remarkable volume collects the life and career stories of more than a hundred female lawyers…. The production of the book itself is as remarkable as the content …a vast collaborative effort of oral history taking and writing, now organized with an historian’s fine hand. It will be useful for years to all scholars of the legal profession as a model and an inspiration.” —Barbara Babcock, author of Fish Raincoats, A Woman Lawyer’s Life

Policymaking from Koch to de Blasio THOMAS J. MAIN The story of New York City’s struggle to provide shelter for its homeless population 288 PAGES • PAPER 978-1-4798-4687-0 • $24.00

“Government has wrestled with homelessness for decades, especially in New York. Thomas Main’s book is the definitive account of that struggle. It is deeply researched, fluently written, and absolutely absorbing. It is also even-handed. Main questions the nostrums for social problems peddled by left and right, but he also rejects the view that government must inevitably fail. Rather, progress is possible—if we persevere. There are answers—but not easy ones. As Max Weber said, politics is ‘the strong and slow boring of hard boards.’” —Lawrence M. Mead, author of The New Politics of Poverty
