Taking seriously the assertion of Michele de Certeau that “what maps cut up, the story cuts across,” this book series looks for creative ethnographic styles to travel the soft, malleable, and bending spaces with those engaged in religious practice as it occurs in time and space. The importance of connecting history, structure, culture, and biography offers insight into the dialectical role of religion in the modern world, one that is expected to yield highly surprising results. The ethnographic approaches taken throughout will take into account the public and private spaces of religious experience where the visible and invisible, mundane and transcendent, ecstatic and frightful, and myopic and reflexive worlds burst from the scenes of social life into the pages of this series.

This series focuses attention on understanding theoretically and historically the development and maintenance of Urban-Rural Systems through a spatial, demographic, and ecological perspective. It seeks a blending or reintegration of the urban, rural, and environmental research literatures under a comprehensive theoretical paradigm. As such, we further specify Urban–Rural Dynamics as analysis of human population distribution on social variables, including politics, economics, and culture.

Critical Africana Studies Series Editor: Reiland Rabaka (University of Colorado at Boulder) The series features scholarship within the emerging field of Africana studies, which encompasses African studies, African diasporan studies, African American studies, Afro-American studies, AfroAsian studies, Afro-European studies, Afro-Islamic studies, Afro-Jewish studies, Afro-Latino studies, Afro-Native American studies, Caribbean studies, Pan-African studies, Black British studies and, of course, Black studies. Over the last fifty years, epistemological and methodological advances in Africana studies, as well as historical and cultural changes, have led to an increased interest in continental and diasporan African history, culture, thought, and struggles. The book series directly responds to the heightened demand for monographs and edited volumes that innovatively explore Africa and its diaspora, employing cutting-edge critical, interdisciplinary, and intersectional theory and methods.

World Rights are available for all titles featured in this catalogue unless otherwise noted at the end of a book’s listing.

African American and Africana Studies

NEW AND FEATURED SERIES Steve Biko

Frantz Fanon and the Future of Cultural Politics

Decolonial Meditations of Black Consciousness By Tendayi Sithole, University of South Africa

Critical Animal Studies and Theory Series Editors: Anthony J. Nocella II (Fort Lewis College) and Scott Hurley (Luther College) Rooted in critical theory as well as the animal advocacy movement, this series argues for an interdisciplinary approach to understanding our relationships with nonhuman animals. Rejecting the notion that nonhuman animals do not have a voice, the series stresses that nonhuman animals do have agency and thus argues for an animal standpoint. In keeping with the principles of Critical Animal Studies, the series encourages progressive and committed scholarship and views exploitation of nonhuman animals, such as animal research and studies, as interrelated with other oppressions such as class, gender, and racism.

Finding Something Different

“This book is a profound ground-breaking account of Biko’s philosophy from a decolonial epistemic perspective hitherto unheard of. It is testimony to the relevance and ever growing re-emergence of Biko and the Black Consciousness philosophy in a country still suffering from antiblack racism, Nelson Mandela’s efforts at racial reconciliation notwithstanding. A must-read for anyone trying to understand the confluence of existentialism and decolonial theory.” —Mabogo Percy More, University of KwaZulu-Natal

By Anthony C. Alessandrini, Kingsborough Community College “Fearless yet fair-minded, Alessandrini sweeps away decades of piety and restores to us a Fanon who has no need of his legends.” —Bruce Robbins, Columbia University

Decolonial Options for the Social Sciences Series Editors: Alexander I. Stingl (FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg), Oyeronke Oyewumi (Stony Brook University), Nicholas Rowland (Pennsylvania State University), and Sabrina Weiss (Rochester Institute of Technology) Decoloniality is a troubling and troubled conversation that does more than just cross the boundaries of disciplines, geo-polities, time frames, cultures, and identities. Interrogating the acts and gestures of crossing borders as events that simultaneously also make borders, decolonial perspectives have opened the possibility for border thinking and border existences that challenge the social sciences at their core. This series seeks books that consider in all aspects the gesture of sociological delinking from the coloniality of power, being, knowledge, and life itself. Our main aim with series is to consider, discuss, and develop ideas and questions that represent an epistemic de-linking that challenges sociology.

Policing Perspectives and Challenges in the Twenty-First Century

“Asante, the architect of Afrocentricity, provides perspectives on numerous topics and theories through the Afrocentric lens. He briefly explains Afrocentricity’s position on theories, from structuralism and postmodernism to negritude, Africology, and kawaida (a theory proposed by Maulana Karenga in the 1970s). Asante also looks at immigration, identity, black education, a united Africa, and the various conflicts impacting Africa today.” —CHOICE

“Scholars and students of Africa and the Cold War owe Christopher J. Lee a debt of gratitude for rescuing from oblivion and masterfully editing this fascinating travelogue by one of the central figures of modern African literature and radical Cold War internationalism. Alex La Guma’s account of his Soviet travels presents us with an opening into a remarkable and remarkably eventful life.” —Maxim Matusevich, Seton Hall University Series: Critical Africana Studies 2017 • 284 pages 978-1-4985-3602-8 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3603-5 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

Series Editor: Jonathon A. Cooper (Indiana University of Pennsylvania) Volumes in this series consider policing perspectives and challenges in the 21st century, around the world, and through a variety of disciplinary lenses. Ultimately, this series “takes stock” of policing today, considers how it got here, and projects where it might be going. It will be of interest and use to a variety of policing scholars, including academics, police executives, and others who study law enforcement.

Contemporary Critical Thought in Africology and Africana Studies Edited by Molefi Kete Asante, Temple University, and Clyde Ledbetter Jr., Cheyney University

Critical Perspectives on Race, Crime, and Justice Series Editor: Tony Gaskew (University of Pittsburgh) This series seeks interdisciplinary scholars whose work critically addresses the racialization of criminal justice systems. Grounded within the connective space of history, the nuances of race continue to define the standard of how justice is applied throughout policing, courts, and correctional systems. As such, this series is open to examine monographs and edited volumes that critically analyze race from multiple narratives—sociopolitical, cultural, feminist, psychosocial, ecological, critical theory, philosophical—along criminal justice lines. This series speaks to the significant scholarship being produced in an era where race continues to intersect with crime and justice. 4

“This anthology of Africological texts is both an outcry against senseless attempts to ignore and dismiss the intellectual production of Afrocentric critical thinkers and an important academic contribution to strengthening the identity of the discipline. The contributors to this volume present their critical studies on history, culture, language, and politics from an Afrocentric perspective.” —Ana Monteiro-Ferreira, Eastern Michigan University

“This book proves that there are kindred links between the Africana intellectual traditions in Africa and in the African diaspora. Rabaka traces that lineage to the ‘central intellectual antecedent’ of ‘Du Boisian Negritude’ detected in the Pan-Africanism of his influential text The Souls of Black Folk. Rabaka organically links Du Bois to the New Negro Movement of the Harlem Renaissance….

The people of good will he profiles had many different motives to support the movement, but as Brooker persuasively explains, at key points they assisted the ongoing efforts of African Americans to secure equality, security, and opportunity.” —David Krugler, University of Wisconsin, Platteville

“In this normative approach to inequality in America, Graves looks at the roles of leaders and citizens in seeking change.… Graves calls on black leaders to become invested in teaching community members the good citizenship habits that can solve the economic, educational, crime, and family problems that perpetuate the secondclass status of blacks in America.” —CHOICE 2016 • 202 pages 978-0-7391-9790-5 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-9791-2 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

The chapters cover interdisciplinary, multiethnic, transnational, and economic perspectives and bridge gaps in our understanding of the challenges in the everyday lives of immigrants in America.” —Susan Trencher, George Mason University

“This is a rich cross-disciplinary and multivoiced work that explores a post 9/11 world in which political and cultural edifices entrenched by imperial discourse have sanctified the convenient ‘first world–third world’ dichotomy. Institutional transnational politics have facilitated the construction of the ‘third world’ subject as an eternally feral being whose essential savagery is not amenable to socio-cultural conditioning. The dissemination of transnational practices in this world, effectively entails the transterritorialization of various socioeconomic, political, and cultural practices and identities that frequently bolster the formation and reconstruction of the nation-state.” —Nyla Ali Khan, University of Oklahoma, Norman

Multiracialism and Its Discontents

Decoding Racial Ideology in Genomics

A Comparative Analysis of Asian-White and Black-White Multiracials

By Johnny E. Williams, Trinity College

“Strmic-Pawl breaks new ground in critical race and multiracial scholarship. She provides empirical evidence of both the reality of multiracialism and the diversity of multiracial experiences in the U.S. In doing so, she shows how multiracialism challenges and reconfigures but does not dismantle the racial hierarchy. This book is an immensely valuable read for anyone interested in better understanding multiracialisms, racialization, and the persistence of racism in the United States today.” —Kathleen Odell Korgen, William Paterson University “The mixed-race population in the United States stands around seven percent. This multiracial category is growing three times faster than the general population. One in seven newlyweds are interracial. Yet, the multiracial category is understudied. Addressing this blind spot is Hephzibah V. Strmic-Pawl’s needed and outstanding comparative study that focuses on how this increasingly acknowledged category can affect race relations and the situational and positional identity options used by those who self-identify as being from more than one race.” —Charles A. Gallagher, La Salle University

“Williams excavates and reveals the many ways in which genomic studies of racial differences are typically grounded in deepseated common lay assumptions about race. In so doing, he contributes to a growing body of literature that documents how, in this era of ‘Post-Genomics’, lay racial thinking persists and remains embedded in much human genetic research.” —Troy Duster, Emeritus Chancellor’s Professor, University of California, Berkeley This book investigates how racism makes genomics and how genomics makes racism and ‘race,’ and the consequences of these constructions. Specifically, Williams explores how racial ideology works in genomics. The simple assumption that frames the book is that ‘race’ as an ideology justifying a system of oppression is persistently recreated as a practical and familiar way to understand biological reality. This book reveals that genomicists’ preoccupation with ‘race’— regardless of good or ill intent—contributes to its perception as a category of differences that is scientifically rigorous. 2016 • 176 pages 978-0-7391-4895-2 • $80.00 / £52.95 • Hardback 978-0-7391-4897-6 • $76.00 / £49.95 • eBook

The Intersection of Race and Gender in National Politics By Wanda Parham-Payne, American University “This book will help to fill a void within the literature. Books that specifically and systematically address the plight of black women in the political arena are conspicuously lacking.... In order to fully address any issue dealing with race and gender, one must have adequate representation from voices and perspectives that are non-dominant. Parham-Payne handily infuses both the direct perspective as well as the story of black women’s journey through politics.” —Mia Hardy, Southern New Hampshire University “Parham-Payne illumines compelling connections between effectively tackling the social and economic concerns of marginalized communities and the political participation of black women. Even more compelling is her call for a more serious consideration of a black woman presidential candidate. Parham-Payne’s analysis of our current political landscape serves as a clarion call for the necessity of women of color legislators in addressing our nation’s most pressing social justice issues.” —Tamara L. Hoff, DePaul University

“In these essays, mixed-race philosophers address the impact of this phenomenological experience on their philosophical work—analyzing, critiquing, and reflecting on the mixed-race experience as viewed personally, historically, socially, politically, and philosophically. Rich insights into the nature of the ‘lived experience’ of being a ‘mixed person’ are on display, as are various troubling questions raised by the very existence of mixed race persons…. This is a valuable and challenging resource.… Recommended.” —CHOICE

“Helen Ngo weaves together, in careful and astute readings, the philosophies of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Martin Heidegger with recent phenomenologically-oriented work in philosophy of race, in particular the works of Linda Martín Alcoff, George Yancy, and my own. Her account of habit as holding and held, her critical reformulation of ‘sedimentation’ as active receptivity, and her theorization of the bodily work, stress and affectivity of managing and anticipating racialization are keen analyses that take phenomenology of race—and phenomenology more generally— further and open up new and exciting spaces for thinking.” —Alia Al-Saji, McGill University Series: Philosophy of Race 2017 • 214 pages 978-1-4985-3464-2 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-3465-9 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

The concept of a “postracial” America— the dream of a nation beyond race—has attracted much attention over the course of the presidency of Barack Obama, suggesting that this idea is peculiar to the contemporary moment alone. This work situates it in contexts that demonstrate how the idea of the postracial has been with America since its founding and will continue to be long after. The chapters explore the idea of the postracial in the US through a variety of critical lenses.

“The Limits of Marriage is an important book, and it deserves a large audience…. Lee is right to remind us that marrying (or not marrying) is not a matter of making good or bad choices but about the choices many of us don’t really have. His goal, in the end, is not to ‘promote marriage’ or extoll its virtues. It is to promote greater opportunity—to expand the choice set—that will allow us to pursue our aspirations (or not) for a fulfilling marriage and satisfying family life. In this, Gary Lee succeeds with flying colors. The Limits of Marriage has my strongest recommendation.” —Contemporary Sociology

Women in Relationships with Bisexual Men

Locating Queerness in the Media

Transgender Communication Studies

Bi Men By Women

A New Look

Histories, Trends, and Trajectories

By Maria Pallotta-Chiarolli, Deakin University

Edited by Jane Campbell and Theresa Carilli, both Purdue University, Northwest

Edited by Jamie C. Capuzza, University of Mount Union, and Leland G. Spencer, Miami University

Bisexual Book Award for Non-Fiction “Pallotta-Chiarolli identifies a number of reasons that prompted her to undertake the research for this book: she was interested in understanding how relationships between women of various sexualities and bisexual men succeed or fail; how relations with other individuals and groups are negotiated; and what it is like to be a woman in a relationship with a bisexual man. From a broader perspective, she also wanted insight into what such dyads reveal about intimate relationships in the early part of the 21st century. The author’s numerous goals have resulted in a thorough and, at times, thoroughly daunting book of over 500 pages (including references) that might be aptly titled ‘Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Women in Relationships with Bisexual Men.’ The information presented comes from a variety of theoretical paradigms as well as from the author’s and other experts’ research. The ‘narratives, vignettes, and voices’ provided by the snowball sample of 78 female respondents provide deep insight into their relationships. For many, the opportunity to speak openly about their non-traditional relationships was cathartic. For readers, the informants’ candor is one of the book’s main strengths.... Highly recommended.” —CHOICE

“Locating Queerness in the Media is a collection of smart essays that reckon with the hopes and frustrations queer people bring to LGBTQ media. Wide-ranging in their objects of analysis, the essays tackle contemporary media forms to ask tough questions about power, pleasure, and the politics of identity. The essays yield provocative yet careful insights into some of the most enduring issues in the field.” —F. Hollis Griffin, Denison University The authors delve deeply into an understanding of queer sensibility, providing essays that examine how media images of the LGBTQ community create a universal consciousness about the existence of queer people, ranging from tragic to villainous. Contributors explore how our media world invites a tension that marginalizes the LGBTQ community. It examines what a queer sensibility means, as reflected in the articles, and how the queer community is creating new ways to study itself.

2016 Distinguished Edited Book Award from the Applied Communication Division of NCA “This book stands as a testament to how rich and challenging communication research in transgender studies can be once divorced from the limiting assumptions of gay and lesbian studies, paving a way forward as a new wave of public awareness draws attention to transgender issues in media and communication.” —Journal of Communication “This collection offers a focused and sincere attempt to understand and advocate on behalf of transgender identities and experiences.” —Women’s Studies In Communication “This book acknowledges the significance of the coalition the LGBTQ acronym enacts while also pointing out that as important as understanding our similarities is, we must also attend to the ways in which we differ. It illustrates that although we may share some needs and goals, the contours of those needs and goals may diverge as a result of our specific situations.” —QED: A Journal in GLBTQ Worldmaking 2017 • 304 pages 978-1-4985-0007-4 • $49.99 / £32.95 • Paperback 978-1-4985-0005-0 • $105.00 / £70.00 • Hardback (2015) 978-1-4985-0006-7 • $46.99 / £31.95 • eBook

This book brings together various discourses concerned with violence and punishment, paying special attention to the extreme variations of these phenomena. Starting from a narrow definition of violence as an infliction of physical harm, paired with a broad discussion of its causes and a wide definition of punishment as an authority claim to retribution or reform, the book maps and interprets political-theoretical discourses on the death penalty, historical explanations of the changes of violence and punishment, and comparative differences in punishment.

After Prisons?

By Anne S. Douds and Eileen M. Ahlin, both Pennsylvania State University, Harrisburg

EW

Freedom, Decarceration, and Justice Disinvestment Edited by William G. Martin and Joshua M. Price, both SUNY Binghamton

“Professors Douds and Ahlin have done a masterful job of weaving compelling true stories into a narrative that brings to the forefront the shortcomings of our penal and legal system in a way that mere statistics cannot convey. This book challenges us to reexamine our views of punishment and the ways we treat our fellow citizens. It is a must read for anyone interested in improving our system of justice.” —Edward Latessa, University of Cincinnati

“After Prisons? is a remarkable book for several reasons. First of all, it remains strong from start to finish. Every chapter offers disciplined research and fresh ideas. Second, unlike the vast majority of books on criminal justice, this volume doesn’t focus on high profile states, cities or the federal government. This is about criminal justice in small, rural counties in upstate New York.” —Daily Kos

Incarcerated Women A History of Struggles, Oppression, and Resistance in American Prisons Edited by Erica Rhodes Hayden, Trevecca Nazarene University, and Theresa R. Jach, Houston Community College

N

Reexamining Reentry takes an in-depth look at how and why prisoner reentry programs are developed. It explains how having access to these programs, or not, could potentially stymie the community reintegration of the formerly incarcerated. Its focus is on empowerment strategies for the participant rather than the deficits experienced by prison populations while attempting to transition. This book shows how the policies, social labeling and discrimination, trauma experienced prior to and during incarceration, as well as media interpretation of the population prior to incarceration all work together to further criminalize populations that have paid their respective debts to society.

By April Bernard, Chicago State University “In this timely volume, April Bernard examines the process of women’s commitment to crime desistance. The research conducted for this report is based on the author’s interviews with 10 women with criminal justice histories who were working for a Chicago-based crime prevention and conflict resolution organization. In particular, the study asks: ‘What factors facilitate the women’s commitment to desist from crime?’ Bernard locates these factors while attending to both external and internal aspects of these women’s stories.” —Journal of Community Corrections

“This book begins the task of historicizing, documenting, and positioning the incarceration of Black Americans as authors investigate policy, laws, and the injustices which have become daily and unremarkable in the United States.

“The author’s argument might be summarized as follows: whites are numerically the greatest criminal offenders, whereas blacks disproportionately offend and are incarcerated. Black crime causation initially stems from slavery, then from Jim Crow policies, and most recently from racism. Persistent white supremacy keeps prisons full of black bodies. But Gaskew, who is African American, has plenty of sharp words for his own race. Many black convicts are narcissistic and show scant regard for their communities and children left behind. Black cultural privilege is a pedagogical resource that, once fully understood, can redirect lives.… Essential.” —CHOICE 2016 • 214 pages 978-1-4985-0167-5 • $39.99 / £24.95 • Paperback 978-0-7391-8312-0 • $84.00 / £54.95 • Hardback (2014) 978-0-7391-8313-7 • $37.99 / £24.95 • eBook

Social Theory

What Would Jesus Haul?

Through ethnographic research, Killian examines vitality in Philadelphia and Berea, two Christian Intentional Communities whose participants live in close proximity with one another to achieve religious values. Pulling from Anthony Giddens’ theory of structuration, Killian argues that the vitality of both communities cannot be reduced to deterministic structural, individual, or organizational causes. Rather, vitality in these communities is affected by all of these causes in relationship to one another. In other words, it’s not that each explanation “matters” (e.g., social structures matter, organizational behaviors matter, individual religious choices matter), but that these explanations matter to each other (e.g., social structures matter to individual choices, individual choices matter to organizational behaviors, and social structures matter to organizational choices, etc.).

“Workers and organizations both need greater flexibility to adapt to the changes that have occurred in the nature of families and work. Yet attaining such flexibility remains an elusive goal in corporate America. This case study of a large corporate workplace illustrates vividly how efforts to enact flexible work arrangements are impeded by larger cultural ideas and institutional logics about work and workers. In so doing, it provides theoretical insights and practical tools for overcoming the obstacles that impede implementation of organizational policies related to flexibility.” —Arne L.

“This book will be a positive addition to the small number of fine books that tell labor’s story by focusing on particular strikes. Its legal and policy conclusions are sound. It starkly illustrates the basic unfairness of the Mackay doctrine permitting the permanent replacement of striking workers.… The strikers were battling not only against corporate power but against widespread sexist assumptions that were held by TWA, and also by fellow unionists, thereby preventing needed labor solidarity. This story has never been adequately told prior to this book.” —Julius Getman, University of Texas at Austin

“Labor and Global Justice shows that at the heart of the process of economic globalization is the decades-old practice of sidelining labor. Without a mobile and often stateless mass of vulnerable workers, there would be no global triumph of capitalism. Labor’s vulnerability is the very flip side of neoliberal globalization. The essays point the way forward, from the precarious lives of laborers today to the conditions for meaningful work and dignified lives.” —Noelle C. McAfee, Emory University

It provides important lessons for the U.S. labor movement and is a ‘must read’ for scholars of labor, race, and gender.” —Ellen Reese, University of California, Riverside

“This work offers an analysis of the underrepresentation of women in science through a compilation of chapters submitted by distinguished researchers in the areas of sociology, public policy, gender studies, and STEM education. Despite increases in the number of women in the ‘pipeline’ toward many STEM fields, women appear to significantly disappear from the workforce at various stages in their careers. Some factors discussed include obstacles to faculty positions, tenure, and expectations for post-tenure promotions….

Almeida has captured their challenges, decisions, and strategies for succeeding in their new land, producing a work that portrays the spirit and resilience of this almost completely invisible, culturally distinct social group. In the seventieth year after Indian independence from Britain, the time is ripe to take stock of this people who migrated there in such large numbers. Let’s hope this will be the first in a series of accounts of the diasporic community in the different parts of the world they have adopted as home.” —Robyn Andrews, Massey University

Resilient Borders and Cultural Diversity Social Structuration in Tibetan Society Education, Society, and Spirituality

N

“This volume is unique in proposing a Tibetan sociology of education, which up to this point has not been attempted. The author provides important insights into the nature of Tibetan society, both historically and currently, by bringing Giddens’s structuration theory into dialogue with the work of ancient Tibetan philosopher Je TsongKhapa. The links between language, education, spirituality, and freedom are explored in ways that are likely to stimulate intense discussion and further inquiry into the future of Tibetan society.” —James Cummins, University of Toronto

Suburbanization, Transnational Migration, and Dispossession

“This book goes far in presenting wide-ranging political, economic, social, cultural, and religious differences among nations. The authors assert that the wisdom or truth of the individual—and therefore motivating factor for social justice—is often a spiritual one. ‘Spirituality’ is writ large here, from organized religions to a mindful connection with self, others, and the world. The book is equally valuable to global western and northern social workers in that it challenges not only the terms ‘first-world’ and ‘third-world,’ but also the idea of degree of a country’s ‘development.’ The authors argue that countries are continuously creating their states, economies and civil societies within their cultures and histories and there is no single desired ‘developed’ endpoint.” —Jessica Toft, University of St. Thomas 2017 • 298 pages 978-1-4985-1967-0 • $95.00 / £65.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1968-7 • $90.00 / £60.00 • eBook

“This book is about the ‘new kids on the block’ in European migration—young Southern Europeans fleeing unemployment, frustration and angst in their home countries for the more exciting and rewarding opportunities in the cities of Northern Europe, such as Berlin and London. Based on extensive field interviews in several countries, Ricucci tells the intriguing story of Europe’s most recent internal migrants, following their educational, work, cultural, and lifestyle aspirations and experiences as they transition from youth to adulthood.” —Russell King, University of Sussex

“Trenz’s sociology of European integration opens new avenues for studying Europe and invites us to rethink standard academic paradigms. The book traces the unfounded hopes and premature fears of the European Union. It analyses both the arguments of those who tried to build an integrated continent and of those who tried to resist this. While he does not want us to read his book as a history of decay, he has the courage of imagining the unthinkable: the collapse of the European Union and the subsequent disintegration.” —Jan Zielonka, St. Antony’s College

By Austin C. Okigbo, University of Colorado, Boulder “This is a significant contribution to localized studies of music and global health concerns. By focusing on the Siphithemba Choir, Okigbo unveils the use of the arts in sub-Saharan Africa to function both as educational outreach for local communities and as an internal intervention for the choir itself. Drawing on song texts rich in details related to health and society, this ethnography stands as a testament to the important role music serves in the everyday politics of AIDS in South Africa today” —Gregory Barz, Vanderbilt University

“This study represents a unique approach to the issue of a national minority within a nation-state. It develops a model of dialogue that moves from negotiations to protest to violence depending on a series of variables. Gadi Hitman analyzes 17 test cases covering sixty years of tension between two national and strong players. His conclusions might serve as the basis for a future re-definition of Jewish–Arab relations within the State of Israel.” —Alexander Bligh, Ariel University

“There is still great need for research, especially on aspects of Yezidism as practiced by different local communities.

Drawing on a range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the conceptualization and investigation of metal as community, this collection not only demonstrates the passion and commitment of metal scholars to produce work adequate to the growing complexity of its subject of inquiry but also that metal scholars themselves are a community that is growing in confidence and expertise.” —Andy R.

DIY Utopia The Conflict Between Secular and Religious Narratives in the United States

Cultural Imagination and the Remaking of the Possible Edited by Amber Day, Bryant University “This volume showcases the creative practices and collectively imagined worlds that constitute, in Day’s words, ‘homemade strivings for utopia.’ Contributing to the nascent field of DIY studies, these explorations illustrate the intimate connections between art and politics, between Utopian visions and material practices of maker culture.” —Megan Boler, University of Toronto

Age Norms and Intercultural Interaction in Colonial North America “This is a timely and compelling book on an unfairly neglected subject—the importance of age as a category of analysis. This insightful and novel work combines both extremes of the life course: old age and youth. Jason Eden and Naomi Eden’s work epitomizes the benefits of interdisciplinary collaboration in awakening important new historical insights. This wide-sweeping consideration of the intersection of biological realities with cultural preoccupations about youth and old age across racial and power differences shows us the complicated early America we too often forget.” —Rebecca Brannon, James Madison University

“Jason Eastman’s detailed ethnography is an authoritative analysis of the intricacies, distinctions, and contradictions within Southern rock music. He not only provides a nuanced portrayal of the musicians and the varied meanings of their songs but, moreover, offers new insights about what it means to be southern and to embrace rebel masculinity. Yet, as Eastman shows, these meanings have stretched far beyond the South and reach across the globe.” —Kathy Charmaz, Sonoma State University

“John Sumser beautifully dissects the narratives and reasoning styles which undergird contemporary religious and secular thought. His deep analysis reveals the ways in which faith and reason utilize different kinds of language games. By clarifying how religious and secular apologists speak past one another, Sumser provides us with a new perspective on an age-old question: ‘what is really real?’.” —Paul Froese, Baylor University

“This rich ethnographic account of Philadelphia’s anarcho-punk scene shows that even forty years on, punk can be more than music, style, and attitude. In the words of The Exploited, ‘Punks not dead!’ Beyond punk, the book shows how those who wish to do good, to be good, reconcile their ethics with actions that seemingly contradict their deeply held values—and how we might do better.” —Ross Haenfler, Grinnell College 2016 • 258 pages 978-1-4985-1998-4 • $90.00 / £60.00 • Hardback 978-1-4985-1999-1 • $85.00 / £54.95 • eBook

“What is privacy? Current technologies seem to have taken away privacy, but are people not active participants in that transition? In a previous age, communication between people was considered to be private unless an active effort was made to make something public. Social networks have turned the tables: now all is public unless one makes an effort to make it private. This book uses Israel as a case study to explore and analyze these realities....

“The media give us what we want, and in this volume, Dr. Carol Madere addresses audience response to messages after crisis situations, during times of high stress and through the introduction of technology and even the lack thereof. Although our consumption of messages has changed over time, the need, almost an addiction, to consume has always existed. Dr. Madere’s compilation acknowledges the audience’s desire for unending information and points to times of trouble to illustrate that while we often hold the media accountable for the messages, they are a business and understand that their supply is our demand.” —Amber J.

Rise of the Audience By Edgar Simpson, Central Michigan University

“A wonderfully insightful, provocative, and muchneeded book that combines critical theory, media analysis, and cultural studies with the ethics and urgency of animal liberation politics. This crossover work builds bridges between activism, academia, and the general public, and will surely inspire discussion and debate about the role of nonhuman animals in both film and society.” —Jason Del Gandio, author of Rhetoric for Radicals

“Simpson’s case studies of Ohio counties are detailed, thorough, and rigorously analyzed. The author effectively catalogues what is happening locally in print, on television, and online, and seamlessly ties it into economic and cultural patterns affecting the nation and the industry as a whole. The result is a fresh and insightful window into the public sphere, at eye level, of a local media market.” —Joseph Hayden, University of Memphis

“Mediated Nostalgia contributes to the existing scholarship on nostalgia by offering an elaborate theoretical and richly illustrated account of an individual, narcissist version of nostalgia…. These case studies are familiar, and make the book very practical for lecturing and offering a deeper understanding of individualized nostalgia.” —Cultural Sociology

“The book provides a timely and detailed examination of fantasy sports and how the sportsmedia industry has changed to accommodate the expanding appetite for media surrounding players and teams that affect an owner’s fantasy team…. Fantasy sports are complex, and this book is a large step toward educating many on fantasy sport and the impact it has on its participants.” —International Journal of Sport Communication

“Lizardi’s semiotic analysis of contemporary media convincingly demonstrates how clever packaging of the past encourages a melancholic stance towards various media objects.” —Janelle Wilson, University of Minnesota Duluth

EDITORIAL SUBMISSIONS Lexington Books is currently reviewing new manuscript proposals in sociology. To submit a proposal for consideration, please send a prospectus, a detailed table of contents, one or two sample chapters, and your curriculum vitae. If you are proposing a contributed volume, please include titles/affiliations for each of the contributors, and we would accept chapter abstracts in lieu of sample chapters. Please do not send your entire manuscript. An acquisitions editor will contact you to request additional materials. The prospectus should include the following: 1. A description of the book, what makes it unique, and why you are qualified to write it. 2. A description of your target audience (undergraduate or graduate students? scholars? professionals?). 3. An analysis of competing or similar books (including publishers and dates). 4. A list of courses in which your book might be used as a text or supplementary text. 5. An indication of whether any part of your manuscript has been published previously, and if it is a doctoral dissertation, what changes you are proposing to prepare it for publication. 6. The length of the manuscript in 12-point type on double-spaced 8 1/2” by 11” pages. 7. If the manuscript is not complete, an estimation of when it will be finished. 8.
