Seeing Straight

The Myth of Individualism

How Social Forces Shape Our Lives

THIRD EDITION By Peter L. Callero

“[A]n extremely readable overview of some difficult theoretical and conceptual problematics in sociology.... [A] true pleasure to read.” —Dean Braa, Western Oregon University The Myth of Individualism is a wonderful, concise introduction to sociology and sociological thinking, showing readers how social forces shape our lives and the world. Revised and updated throughout, the third edition of this powerful book continues to challenge the common belief that human behavior is the result of free choices made by autonomous actors, but rather shows the many ways that people are naturally social, interdependent, and shaped by social forces. Filled with engaging stories and deep research, The Myth of Individualism helps readers begin to develop a sociological imagination. By acknowledging the limits of individual effort and control, we gain insight into our own lives and the lives of others.

An Introduction to Gender and Sexual Privilege

By Jean Halley and Amy Eshleman “Seeing Straight is a rewarding—and challenging— book designed to take the young adult from passive acceptance of gender norms and sex roles, through the long and exciting history of awakening of identity, sexuality, dissent, freedom, and into adult respect for the variety of humanity. The volume covers stereotyping and prejudice, sex and gender, queer theory, gender privilege and heteronormativity, what is normal, what is deviant, what is queer and what is courage.” —Chris Crandall, University of Kansas Seeing Straight introduces students to key concepts in gender and sexuality through the lens of privilege and power. After an accessible overview, the book asks students to examine the privilege inherent in approaching heterosexual and cisgender identities as “normal,” as well as the problems of treating queer gender and sexuality as “abnormal.” Compelling real-life examples illustrate theory and empirical research.

Peter L. Callero is professor of sociology at Western Oregon University.

Jean Halley is associate professor of sociology at the College of Staten Island, CUNY. Amy Eshleman is professor of psychology at Wagner College.

Ancestors

Who We Are and Where We Come From By David Hertzel

“This book could be enjoyed by general readership; for a book club; or used to augment philosophy, religion, sociology, or history class discussions.” —Booklist “The modern world needs this book and Hertzel’s insights more than ever.” —Howard Kurtz, author of Introduction to Sociology through Utopian Thought In Ancestors, David Hertzel offers an introductory foray into the nature of relationships people today have with their ancestors, and explores the significance of ancestry and ancestral belief in our modern world. Guided by two questions—”Who are your ancestors?” and “What is your relationship to your ancestors?”—Hertzel interviewed thirtyfive elders and people of prominence within particular social or intellectual communities who were accomplished in an area related to ancestry, its nature, or its meaning. From these interviews, Hertzel identifies common themes to ancestral practices and beliefs, such as the way we sanctify our ancestors, how we create a living narrative of our ancestry, and how experiences like suffering and love are shared across generations and appear to transcend death. David Hertzel is professor of history at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

A Filipina’s Story of Prostitution and Slavery under the Japanese Military

Tribes, States, and the Global System

Theory and Contemporary Contexts “By combining the philosophies of semiotics and phenomenonology along with his expertise in celebrity and popular cultures, Lee Barron examines the personal and social impacts of collecting tattoos for those in the United Kingdom. Tattoo Culture adds a powerful new ethnographic edition to the global focus on tattoo popularity in consumer societies.” —Beverly Yuen Thompson, Siena College

“Cultural Anthropology stands well apart from many other introductory texts. It combines sweeping perspective and grand narrative with wide-ranging cross-cultural and historical data to provide a clearly focused anthropological perspective on our modern world. Bodley does more than introduce anthropology; he shows students how to apply it.” —Joshua S. Levin, College of Southern Nevada

Tattoo Culture critically examines the ways in which tattoos alter social actors’ sense of being and their relationship with time in the semiotic ways with which they communicate, to themselves or to the wider world, key elements of their bodily and personal identity and sense of being.

In introducing basic concepts of cultural anthropology, Bodley challenges students to consider “big questions” about the nature of cultural systems, to explore relationships between growth, scale, and power, and to critically assess how commercialization, development, humanitarian concerns, and environmental issues are affecting our global future.

Lee Barron is principal lecturer in the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Northumbria.

Kelly, Yale University The most exciting thing about anthropology is that it enables the student to become acquainted with people of different cultures. The Tapestry of Culture provides the student with the basic concepts necessary to understand these different cultures while showing that cultural variations occur within certain limits.

The Dawn of Tibet

SECOND EDITION By Robert L. Winzeler

The Ancient Civilization on the Roof of the World By John Vincent Bellezza

“[A]n excellent review of the vast body of research anthropologists have done on religion around the world and through the history of our species…. [A]n excellent book for courses on the anthropology of religion as well as for people who want to know what anthropologists have to say on the topic…. I have found no book to match it for comprehensive coverage.” —E. Paul Durrenberger, Pennsylvania State University

“[A] fascinating read…. Recommended.” —CHOICE “It also has much to offer the scholar with its insights on Tibetan civilization and thus stretches beyond the confines of the familiar, creating a complex journey of discovery.” —Asian Highlands Perspectives This groundbreaking book reveals the existence of an advanced civilization where none was known before, presenting an entirely new perspective on the culture and history of Tibet. This book is a compelling window into the most inaccessible reaches of Tibet and a civilization that flourished long before Buddhism took root.

New Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers

“Racism without Racists is the most important book I have used to teach on racism and what it looks and sounds like today.” —Viviane Saleh-Hanna, University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth “Having already established itself as a classic text on race and racism, this fifth edition refines and extends Bonilla-Silva’s understanding of color-blind racial ideology, structural inequality, and racial hierarchy to the pressing issues we currently confront. His engaging and provocative writing style makes the text accessible without ever diminishing the depth and richness of his analysis.” —Michael Omi, University of California, Berkeley

K’Oben

3,000 Years of the Maya Hearth

By Amber M. O’Connor and Eugene N. Anderson “Highly recommended.” —CHOICE “K’Oben will surely leave readers with a solid foundation on food studies in the Maya area, and a healthy appetite for more learning and tasting.” —Enrique Rodríguez-Alegría, University of Texas at Austin

Eduardo Bonilla-Silva’s acclaimed Racism without Racists documents how, beneath our contemporary conversation about race, there lies a full-blown arsenal of arguments, phrases, and stories that whites use to account for—and ultimately justify—racial inequalities. The fifth edition of this provocative book makes clear that colorblind racism is as insidious now as ever. It features new material on our current racial climate, including the Black Lives Matter movement; a significantly revised chapter that examines the Obama presidency, the 2016 election, and Trump’s presidency; and a new chapter addressing what readers can do to confront racism—both personally and on a larger structural level.

“The essays collected in this volume attest to the inexhaustible potential of philosophical and ethical questions that arise when we apprehend the enclosure delimiting the human and animal as concepts.” —Kalpana R. Seshadri, Boston College

Amber M. O’Connor has an extensive background in food studies and is currently focused on the impacts of UNESCO’s recognition of the indigenous cuisines of Mexico and the re-imagining of authentic “Maya” cuisine by the tourist industry in Quintana Roo and the greater Yucatan peninsula.

Ricoeur and Castoriadis in Discussion

The State and the Self

Edited by Suzi Adams (Flinders University)

In this fascinating and timely book, Maren Behrensen facilitates a conversation between philosophy and the ‘practitioners’ of identity. What makes a person the same person over time? This question has been studied throughout the history of philosophy. Yet philosophers have never fully engaged with the ‘practitioners’ of identity, namely technology developers, lawyers, politicians, sociologists and applied ethicists.

On Human Creation, Historical Novelty, and the Social Imaginary

“Suzi Adams has assembled an important collection of essays that offer crucial insights into the significance human production and creativity have for history, politics, and action. Ricoeur and Castoriadis in Discussion represents a major contribution to our understanding of the social imaginary’s critical role in a world beset with social and political challenges.” —Roger W. H. Savage, UCLA This book features a highly significant discussion between Paul Ricoeur and Cornelius Castoriadis. Recorded for Radio France (Culture) in 1985, it is the only known encounter between these two great philosophers of the imagination. Their wide-ranging conversation covers such themes as the productive imagination, human creation, social imaginaries, and the possibility of historical novelty; it reveals points of surprising commonality as well as divergence in their approaches.

Identity and Identities

By Maren Behrensen (University of Münster)

The book offers an answer to the metaphysical question of personal identity and tries to show how this question is of immediate relevance to the various practices of identity management—particularly in the fields of administration, counter-terrorism activities, and gender reassignment. Behrensen argues that identity documents and other markers of identity (such as biometric samples) are not merely representations of, but actually help constitute, personal identity.

The Future of Meat Without Animals

Edited by Brianne Donaldson (Monmouth College) and Christopher Carter (University of San Diego)

The Extreme in Contemporary Culture States of Vulnerability

By Pramod K. Nayar (University of Hyderabad)

“The Future of Meat Without Animals … provides consumers, activists, and scholars with critical resources and innovative ways of thinking about animals, agriculture, meat, and meaning while calling for the essential deindustrialization of our multispecies relationships.” —Brett Mizelle, California State University, Long Beach

“[A] highly original exploration of the articulation of contemporary culture by the figure of ‘the extreme.’” —Dave Boothroyd, University of Lincoln; author of Ethical Subjects in Contemporary Culture The Extreme in Contemporary Culture studies vulnerability across various conditions: torture, disease, accident. It studies spaces of vulnerability and helplessness, the aesthetics and representations of vulnerability, the extreme in the everyday and, finally, the witnessing of (in)human extremes. A witness culture emerges through the cultural discourse of vulnerability, the representations of the victim and/or survivor, and the accounts of witnesses. They offer, in short, an entire new way of speaking about and classifying the human. Series: Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics

It is an outstanding achievement that combines accessibility with a deep social science analysis. “ —Benjamin Marquez, University of Wisconsin–Madison

“[A] monumental achievement that explores the origins of ethnicity in its many forms around the globe.… David Kaplan makes a compelling case that ethnicity and multiculturalism are shaped by geography— from nation-states to cities to neighborhoods.” —Daniel T.

Sustainable Urbanism and Direct Action Case Studies in Dialectical Activism

By Benjamin Heim Shepard (New York City College of Technology) “Benjamin Heim Shepard is an exuberant and indispensable chronicler of contemporary urban life and grassroots organizing. With this volume, he brings together the energy of the street and the nuances of theory to produce a fascinating account of how activists are contesting and redefining urbanism for our time.” —L. A. Kauffman, author of Direct Action: Protest and the Reinvention of American Radicalism Urban activism can manifest in many guises, from community gardening to mass naked bike rides. But how might we theorize the evidence of the collisions between social forces that take place in our streets and public commons? Cities are formed through these collective collisions in time. This book draws on the author’s own vast experience as an activist to make links between a theory of practice with rich discussion of the histories of conflicts over public space.

This book pursues the possibilities and limits of the UN’s Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by connecting theoretical discussions with empirical evidence, taken from extensive participant observation and on the qualitative content analysis of indigenous and state documents.

Mapping Bodies in Contemporary City Space By Debra Benita Shaw (University of East London)

“Highly recommended.” —John M. Janzen, emeritus, University of Kansas–Lawrence

“[A]n engaging and reliable overview of the field.” —Anthropos

“This fascinating book will take the reader on a hundred different journeys with food; it also provides a list of foods one best not indulge in.” —Explorers Journal In Food on Foot, Güzey offers an interesting read on the social and cultural history, developments, and challenges in food on trails and in the wild. She explores personal accounts, news articles, and anecdotes to highlight how food has accompanied us in mountaineering, desert travel, and pilgrimage, in the army or on the street.

This text provides a comprehensive and critical exploration of food from the unique perspective of place. It shows that our experiences with food are deeply influenced by their cultural, social, economic, and political contexts. Critically engaged and connected to current activist and academic debates, Food and Place will be an essential resource for students across the social sciences.

From tinned foods to foraging in the wild, worm-infested hardtack to palatedulling army rations, loss of appetite in high altitude to starvation at the trenches, no stone is left unturned in this tour of how we manage—or mismanage—food on foot. Series: Food on the Go

Rediscovering Lost Innocence

Middle Atlantic Prehistory

Easter Island, Earth Island

By E. Pierre Morenon (Rhode Island College)

By Heather A. Wholey (West Chester University) and Carole L. Nash (James Madison University)

FOURTH EDITION By Paul Bahn (independent scholar) and John Flenley (emeritus, Massey University)

“The eclectic compilation by Wholey and Nash dealing with the Middle Atlantic will whet the reader’s appetite for more.” —R. Michael Stewart, Temple University; New Jersey Historic Preservation Office

To this day, Easter Island remains shrouded in mystery. Where did the islanders come from, and when? How did Rapa Nui culture evolve over the centuries? How, and why, did their natural environment change over time?

Middle Atlantic Prehistory: Foundations and Practice provides a basic survey of Middle Atlantic prehistoric archaeology and serves as an important reference for situating the development of Middle Atlantic prehistoric archaeology within the present context of culture area studies.

Paul Bahn and John Flenley guide readers through the mysteries and enigmas of Rapa Nui, incorporating the records of early explorers, folk legends, and archaeological evidence along the way. They cover the island’s geological and environmental history and explore its flora and fauna, illustrating how human actions affected the natural environment of the island.

Archaeology at the State Home and School

During the late nineteenth century, guided by progressive concerns about the role of the state in responding to societal changes resulting from urbanization and industrialization, Rhode Island took on a more active statewide role in public education, sewers, parks, prisons, and child welfare systems. New ideas about civil rights extended to race, to women, to labor, and to children. Old institutions were replaced by state institutions, such as the State Home, which opened in 1885. The State Home Project began in 2001 with no evocative life histories, and no local or regional childhood narratives about the former residents of the State Home upon which to build. It remains an important place because thousands of children and citizens lived portions of their lives there; their experiences were significant in our past, and they are important to us in the present and to future generations.
