Detroit | Urban Studies

Revolution Detroit Strategies for Urban Reinvention John Gallagher A practical guide to what’s working in urban reinvention with examples drawn from Detroit and other cities. After decades of suburban sprawl, job loss, and lack of regional government, Detroit has become a symbol of post-industrial distress and also one of the most complex urban environments in the world. In Revolution Detroit: Strategies for Urban Reinvention, John Gallagher argues that Detroit’s experience can offer valuable lessons to other cities that are, or will soon be, dealing with the same broken municipal model. A follow-up to his award-winning 2010 work, Reimagining Detroit, this volume looks at Detroit’s successes and failures in confronting its considerable challenges. It also looks at other ideas for reinvention drawn from the recent history of other cities, including Cleveland, Flint, Richmond, Philadelphia, and Youngstown, as well as overseas cities, including Manchester and Leipzig. Revolution Detroit surveys four key areas: governance, education and crime, economic models, and the repurposing of vacant urban land. Among the topics Gallagher covers are effective new urban governance models developed in Cleveland and Detroit; new education models highlighting low-income-but-highachievement schools and districts; creative new entrepreneurial business models emerging in Detroit and other post-industrial cities; and examples of successful repurposing of vacant urban land through urban agriculture, restoration of natural landscapes, and the use of art in public places. He concludes with a cautious yet hopeful message that Detroit may prove to be the world’s most important venue for successful urban experimentation and that the reinvention portrayed in the book can be repeated in many cities. Gallagher’s extensive traveling and research, along with his long career covering urban redevelopment for the Detroit Free Press, has given him an unmatched perspective on Detroit’s story. Readers interested in urban studies and recent Detroit history will appreciate this thoughtful assessment of the best practices and obvious errors when it comes to reinventing our cities. John Gallagher is a veteran journalist and author whose latest book, Reimagining Detroit: Opportunities for Redefining an American City (Wayne State University Press, 2010), was named by the Huffington Post as among the best social and political books of 2010. He joined the Detroit Free Press in 1987 to cover urban and economic redevelopment efforts in Detroit and Michigan, a post he still holds. His other books include Great Architecture of Michigan and, as co-author, AIA Detroit: The American Institute of Architects Guide to Detroit Architecture. John and his wife, Sheu-Jane, live along Detroit’s east riverfront. March 2013, 6x9, 208 Pages, 44 Illustrations ISBN 978-0-8143-3871-1, $24.95t Paperback

“John Gallagher turns what could be a dry academic treatise into a vibrant page turner, a carefully constructed narrative that weaves the colorful stories of politicians, city planners and ordinary people into identifying and solving the great challenges presented by the global move from a manufacturing economy to one that is knowledge-based.” —Randal Charlton, former executive director of TechTown, Detroit

Poetry

Practicing to Walk Like a Heron Jack Ridl Poems that delight in discovering the comic, sorrowful, empathic, and spiritual in what is often overlooked. In Practicing to Walk Like a Heron multiple-award-winning Michigan poet Jack Ridl shares lines of well-earned wisdom in the face of a constantly changing world. The familiar comforts of life—a warm fire in winter, a lush garden in summer—become the settings for transcendent and universal truths in these poems, as moments of grief, sadness, and melancholy trigger a deeper appreciation for small but important joys. The simple clarity of Ridl’s lines and diction make the poems accessible to all readers, but especially rewarding for those who appreciate carefully honed, masterful verse. Many of the poems take solace in nature—quiet deer outside in the woods, deep snow, a thrush’s empty nest in the eaves—as well as man-made things in the world—a steamer trunk, glass jars, tea cups, and books piled high near an easy chair. Yet Ridl avoids becoming nostalgic or romantic in his surroundings, and shows that there is nothing easy in his celebration of topics like “The Letters,” “But He Loved His Dog,” “A Christmas List for Santa,” and “The Enormous Mystery of Couples.” An interlude of full-color pages divides Ridl’s more personal poems with a section of circus-themed pieces, adding visions of elephants, trumpets, tents, sequins, and sideshows, and the uniquely travel-weary perspectives of jugglers, trapeze artists, roustabouts, and clowns. Practicing to Walk Like a Heron unabashedly affirms the quirky and eccentric, the small and mundane, and the intellectual and experiential in life. This relatable and emotionally powerful volume will appeal to all poetry readers. Jack Ridl is the author of Broken Symmetry (Wayne State University Press, 2006), named best book of poetry for 2006 by The Society of Midland Authors, and of Losing Season, and is co-author with Peter Schakel of Approaching Literature. He is professor emeritus at Hope College, where he was named Michigan’s Professor of the Year in 1996 by the Carnegie (C.A.S.E.) Foundation. More than 75 of his students are now published authors.

Spring and Summer 2013


Poetry

Earth Again Chris Dombrowski Stirring meditations on living with a strong connection to the environment, both physical and psychological. The second full-length collection from award-winning poet Chris Dombrowski, Earth Again transports readers to an imaginative world where identity is explored and expanded. With a mixture of long poems and shorter pieces, Dombrowski probes birth, death, sex, memory, and our blessed but treacherous engagement with the natural world. While he writes from a number of points of view and employs both male and female speakers, much of the collection’s singular insight centers around masculine identity and being a husband and a father. Readers come away transformed, “like the land / gasping as it does each late winter evening when / the sky at tree line, nearly sapphiric, goes black,” as these poems prove Dombrowski to be a truly original American voice. Comprised of three sections—each of which concludes with a long poem—Earth Again presents a range of narrative and emotions in dexterous rhythms, unexpected shifts, and unforgettable metaphors. Dombrowksi introduces readers to arresting images like “the parataxis of her ass,” “cerulean, alchemical light,” “Molly with the sun in her mouth,” and “labyrinthine, lanky-stemmed, dew-magnified” leaves. These details combine with Dombrowski’s note-perfect language, which alternates between the most colloquial and the most elevated of diction. Readers will be challenged to consider spirituality alongside Scooby-Doo Band-aids, and to meditate on death after the mower has chewed up a plastic dinosaur, as Dombrowski revels in exploring our connection to the environment and one another. Fans of Dombrowski’s previous collection, By Cold Water (which was noted as a contemporary poetry bestseller by the Poetry Foundation in 2009), along with other poets and poetry lovers will appreciate the attention to detail and the imaginative intensity of the poems in Earth Again. Chris Dombrowski is the author of By Cold Water (Wayne State University Press, 2009), a finalist for Foreword Magazine’s Poetry Book of the Year, and two chapbooks, Fragments with Dusk in Them and September Miniatures with Blood and Mars. His poems have appeared in numerous literary journals and anthologies, including Beloit Poetry Journal, Crazyhorse, Gulf Coast, Making Poems, Michigan Quarterly Review, and Poetry. He currently teaches at Interlochen Center for the Arts, and, with his family, divides his time between Michigan and Montana. February 2013, 6.5x8, 96 Pages ISBN 978-0-8143-3729-5, $15.95t Paperback

Upper Peninsula

The Way North Collected Upper Peninsula New Works Edited by Ron Riekki A stunning collection of previously unpublished works that provide snapshots of life in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Michigan’s Upper Peninsula is distinct from the rest of the state in geography, climate, and culture, including a unique and thriving creative writing community. In The Way North: Collected Upper Peninsula New Works, editor Ron Riekki presents poetry, fiction, and non-fiction from memorable, varied voices that are writing from and about Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. In all, this unique anthology features new works from forty-two writers, including rising star Ellen Airgood, Edgar Award–winner Steve Hamilton, Rona Jaffe Award–winner Catie Rosemurgy, Jonathan Johnson of Best American Poetry, Michigan Notable Book Award–winner Keith Taylor, and Michigan Author Award–winner John Smolens. In 49 poems and 20 stories—diverse in form, length, and content—readers are introduced to the unmistakable terrain and characters of the U.P. The book not only showcases the snow, small towns, and idiosyncratic characters that readers might expect but also introduces unexpected regions and voices. From the powerful powwow in Baraga of April Lindala’s “For the Healing of All Women” to the sexcharged basement in Stambaugh of Chad Faries’s “Hotel Stambaugh: Michigan, 1977” to the splendor found between Newberry and Paradise in Joseph D. Haske’s “Tahquamenon,” readers will delight in discovering the work of both new and established authors. The contributors range widely in age, gender, and background, as The Way North highlights the work of established writers, teachers, students, laborers, fishermen, housewives, and many others. The Way North brings the U.P.’s literary tradition to the awareness of more readers and showcases some of the most compelling work connected to the area. It will be welcomed by readers interested in new fiction and poetry and instructors of courses on Michigan writing. Ron Riekki was born and raised in the U.P. and has graduate degrees in creative writing from Brandeis, Virginia, and Western Michigan, and a degree in religious studies from Central Michigan. He is the author of U.P.: A Novel, several poetry chapbooks, and numerous plays, including Carol, Dandelion Cottage, A Play, and All Saints’ Day.

Fiction

Living Together Gloria Whelan New from National Book Award–winner Gloria Whelan, stories that explore the unexpected and sometimes amazing ways we live together. We all have to live together, whether we do it with enthusiasm or grace, reluctance or despair. In this skillfully drawn collection, National Book award-winning Michigan writer Gloria Whelan presents short stories and a novella that look at people living together who have reached a crisis point. Whether her characters are old or young, male or female, in settings that are urban or rural, they wrestle with anger, loneliness, and frustration, but ultimately demonstrate bravery, trust, determination, and, often, the ability to learn something new. Whelan considers a variety of narratives about people coexisting, breaking apart, or coming together. The subdued lives of older women are shaken by a scandalous invasion; a man looks around him to discover he will be living the rest of his life in the wrong place with the wrong people; a married couple, grown apart, find themselves locked together; suburbanites reach out tentatively to the distant city; a house and the ghosts who inhabit it change lives. A final section contains Whelan’s novella, “Keeping Your Place,” which follows a family as their lives and their home change during the years of the Vietnam War. After the loss of her husband, a mother and the three children must make a final visit to their beloved cabin in the woods and come to a crucial decision. Well known for her writing for young readers, Whelan’s stories in Living Together will be a welcome surprise for adults who may be new to her quirky, relatable characters and quietly powerful narrative. Gloria Whelan’s short stories have appeared in a number of literary quarterlies including The Gettysburg Revew, The Ontario Review, and The Missouri Review as well as in anthologies including The O’Henry Awards. She has written numerous books for young readers, and her novel Homeless Bird was a National Book Award winner. March 2013, 5.5x8.5, 288 Pages ISBN 978-0-8143-3896-4, $18.95t Paperback

Biography

Legal History

Crusader for Justice Federal Judge Damon J. Keith Trevor W. Coleman With a Foreword by Mitch Albom A complete biography of one of the seminal figures in African American jurisprudence. The Honorable Damon J. Keith was appointed to the federal bench in 1967 and has served as a judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit since 1977, where he has been an eloquent defender of civil and constitutional rights and a vigorous enforcer of civil rights law. In Crusader for Justice: Federal Judge Damon J. Keith, author Trevor W. Coleman presents the first ever biography of native Detroiter Judge Keith, surveying his education, important influences, major cases, and professional and personal commitments. Along the way, Coleman consults a host of Keith’s notable friends and colleagues, including former White House deputy counsel John Dean, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, and industrialist Edsel Ford II for this candid and comprehensive volume. Coleman traces Keith’s early life, from his public school days in Detroit to his time serving in the segregated U.S. army and his law school years at Howard University at the dawn of the Civil Rights era. He reveals how Keith’s passion for racial and social justice informed his career, as he became co-chairman of Michigan’s first Civil Rights Commission and negotiated the politics of his appointment to the federal judiciary. Coleman goes on to detail Keith’s most famous cases, including the Pontiac Busing and Hamtramck Housing cases, the 1977 Detroit Police affirmative action case, the so-called Keith Case (United States v. U.S. District Court), and the Detroit Free Press v. Ashcroft case in 2002. He also traces Keith’s personal commitment to mentoring young black lawyers, provides a candid look behind the scenes at the dynamics and politics of the Six Circuit Court of Appeals, and even reveals some of Keith’s difficult relationships (with the Detroit NAACP and Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas). Judge Keith’s forty-five years on the bench offer a unique viewpoint on a tumultuous era of American and legal history. Readers interested in Civil Rights–era law, politics, and personalities will appreciate the portrait of Keith’s fortitude and conviction in Crusader for Justice. Trevor W. Coleman is a national award-winning journalist, former editorial writer, and columnist for the Detroit Free Press. He was chief speechwriter for former Michigan governor Jennifer M. Granholm and director of communications for the Michigan Department of Civil Rights. He is a graduate of The Ohio State University and father of two college students, Sydnie and Trevor II.

This book says a lot about the kind of difference one fellow being can make in this nation’s hunger for democracy and justice. I wholeheartedly recommend this book for those who care about America’s future.” —Harry Belafonte Of Related Interest

Detroit

Redevelopment and Race Planning a Finer City in Postwar Detroit June Manning Thomas A history of how racial disunity and industrial decline handicapped post–World War II urban planning initiatives in Detroit. In the decades following World War II, professional city planners in Detroit made a concerted effort to halt the city’s physical and economic decline. Their successes included an award-winning master plan, a number of laudable redevelopment projects, and exemplary planning leadership in the city and the nation. Yet despite their efforts, Detroit was rapidly transforming into a notorious symbol of urban decay. In Redevelopment and Race: Planning a Finer City in Postwar Detroit, June Manning Thomas takes a look at what went wrong, demonstrating how and why government programs were ineffective and even destructive to community needs. In confronting issues like housing shortages, blight in older areas, and changing economic conditions, Detroit’s city planners worked during the urban renewal era without much consideration for low-income and African American residents, and their efforts to stabilize racially mixed neighborhoods faltered as well. Steady declines in industrial prowess and the constant decentralization of white residents counteracted planners’ efforts to rebuild the city. Among the issues Thomas discusses in this volume are the harmful impacts of Detroit’s highways, the mixed record of urban renewal projects like Lafayette Park, the effects of the 1967 riots on Detroit’s ability to plan, the city-building strategies of Coleman Young (the city’s first black mayor) and his mayoral successors, and the evolution of Detroit’s federally designated Empowerment Zone. Examining the city she knew first as an undergraduate student at Michigan State University and later as a scholar and planner, Thomas ultimately argues for a different approach to traditional planning that places social justice, equity, and community ahead of purely physical and economic objectives. Redevelopment and Race was originally published in 1997 and was given the Paul Davidoff Award from the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning in 1999. Students and teachers of urban planning will be grateful for this re-release. A new postscript offers insights into changes since 1997. June Manning Thomas is Centennial Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Michigan. She is also the co-editor of Urban Planning and the African American Community and co-editor of The City after Abandonment.

Military History

Among the Enemy A Michigan Soldier’s Civil War Journal Edited by Mark Hoffman Collects the detailed and personal writings of a member of the First Michigan Engineers and Mechanics during the Civil War. Though many Union soldiers wrote about their experiences in the American Civil War, few had the vantage point of William Horton Kimball, a member of the First Michigan Engineers and Mechanics. As a military engineer, Kimball spent most of his time behind the major lines of conflict and often worked among civilians who sympathized with the enemy. In Among the Enemy: A Michigan Soldier’s Civil War Journal, author Mark Hoffman presents Kimball’s journal as a unique window into wartime experience. Kimball was a prolific writer, and his journal is full of detailed accounts of expeditions into a hostile countryside, the bitter war against guerillas, and of the civilians caught in the middle of a traditional war waged with nontraditional means. He comments freely and openly on the strengths and weaknesses of his officers and comrades caught up in the same war. At the same time, Kimball provides moving accounts of when the Engineers were thrown into the line of battle at Perryville and Lavergne and proved themselves as soldiers capable of traditional combat. Through Kimball’s account, readers can chart the important evolution of Union war policy regarding occupied populations, as well as how the American views of warfare broke down when combat moved from battlefield to countryside and soldiers in the rear became important targets for enemy action. Civil War historian Mark Hoffman introduces Kimball’s writings and provides some background on Kimball’s life as a soldier. He accompanies the journal entries with illustrations and maps. Kimball’s account reminds readers that there was a time when Americans who honored the same founders and national holidays were seeking to kill each other in a bitter war behind the lines of traditional armies. Readers interested in military history and the Civil War will enjoy the inside perspective of Among the Enemy. Mark Hoffman is a life-long student of the Civil War. He previously wrote the award-winning My Brave Mechanics: The First Michigan Engineers and Their Civil War (Wayne State University Press, 2007).

Women’s Studies

The Political Activities of Detroit Clubwomen in the 1920s A Challenge and a Promise Jayne Morris-Crowther Follows the work of Detroit women’s organizations as they dealt with issues related to voting, industrialization, and immigration. In the early 1900s, Detroit’s clubwomen successfully lobbied for issues like creating playgrounds for children, building public baths, raising the age for child workers, and reforming the school board and city charter. But when they won the vote in 1918, Detroit’s clubwomen, both black and white, were eager to incite even greater change. In the 1920s, they fought to influence public policy at the municipal and state level, while contending with partisan politics, city politics, and the media, which often portrayed them as silly and incompetent. In this fascinating volume, author Jayne Morris-Crowther examines the unique civic engagement of these women who considered their commitment to the city of Detroit both a challenge and a promise. By the 1920s, there were eight African American clubs in the city (Willing Workers, Detroit Study Club, Lydian Association, In As Much Circle of Kings Daughters, Labor of Love Circle of Kings Daughters, West Side Art and Literary Club, Altar Society of the Second Baptist Church, and the Earnest Workers of the Second Baptist Church), joined in 1921 under the Detroit Association of Colored Women’s Clubs; and nearly 15,000 mostly white clubwomen were represented by the Detroit Federation of Women’s Clubs (formed in 1895 by the unification of the Detroit Review Club, Twentieth Century Club, Detroit Woman’s Club, Woman’s Historical Club, Clio Club, Wednesday History Club, Hypathia, and Zatema Club). MorrisCrowther begins by investigating the roots of the clubs in pre-suffrage Detroit and charts their growing power. She goes on to consider the women’s work in three areas—Policies that Affect Women and Children, Protecting the Home Against Enemies, and Home as Part of the Urban Environment—and considers the numerous challenges they faced in The Limits of Enfranchised Citizens. An appendix contains the 1926 Directory of the Detroit Federation of Women’s Clubs. In the end, Morris-Crowther shows that Detroit’s clubwomen pioneered new lobbying techniques like personal interviews and used political education in savvy ways to bring politics to the community level. This volume will be interesting reading for enthusiasts of Detroit history and readers wanting to learn more about women and politics of the 1920s. Jayne Morris-Crowther is an adjunct in the history departments of the University of Delaware, Rowan University, and Neumann University. Her articles have been published in the Michigan Historical Review and the South Carolina Historical Magazine. March 2013, 6x9, 264 Pages, 2 Illustrations ISBN 978-0-8143-3815-5,$44.95s Hardback

“Morris-Crowther expertly analyzes the class and racial biases of clubwomen, while uncovering the significant civic action they deployed. The result enhances our understanding of the public and private worlds of 1920s Detroit.” —Victoria W. Wolcott, associate professor of history at University at Buffalo

Cinema and Community Progressivism, Exhibition, and Film Culture in Chicago, 1907–1917 Moya Luckett Investigates how progressivism structured many aspects of understudied era of cinema. Caught between the older model of short film and the emerging classic era, the transitional period of American cinema (1907–1917) has typically posed a problem for studies of early American film. Yet in Cinema and Community: Progressivism, Exhibition, and Film Culture in Chicago, 1907–1917, author Moya Luckett uses the era’s dominant political ideology as a lens to better understand its cinematic practice. Luckett argues that movies were a typically Progressive institution, reflecting the period’s investment in leisure, its more public lifestyle, and its fascination with celebrity. She uses Chicago, often considered the nation’s most Progressive city and home to the nation’s largest film audience by 1907, to explore how Progressivism shaped and influenced the address, reception, exhibition, representational strategies, regulation, and cultural status of early cinema. After a survey of Progressivism’s general influences on popular culture and the film industry in particular, she examines the era’s spectatorship theories in chapter 1 and then the formal characteristics of the early feature film—including the use of prologues, multiple diegesis, and oversight—in chapter 2. In chapter 3, Luckett explores the period’s cinema in the light of its celebrity culture, while she examines exhibition in chapter 4. She also looks at the formation of Chicago’s censorship board in November 1907 in the context of efforts by city government, social reformers, and the local press to establish community standards for cinema in chapter 5. She completes the volume by exploring race and cinema in chapter 6 and national identity and community, this time in relation to World War I, in chapter 7. As well as offering a history of an underexplored area of film history, Luckett provides a conceptual framework to help navigate some of the period’s key issues. Film scholars interested in the early years of American cinema will appreciate this insightful study.

“Generates a social-cultural and ideological context for earlier cinema’s multi-faceted nature that both resists and complicates that fashionable and yet altogether amorphous term, ‘modernity.’”

Moya Luckett is visiting assistant professor of cinema studies at New York University.

The Last Laugh Strange Humors of Cinema Edited by Murray Pomerance Fascinating explorations of dark, strange, unpredictable, and non-comedic laughter. For critics, fans, and scholars of drama and film, the laugh has traditionally been tied to comedy, indicating and expressing mirth, witty relief, joyous celebration, or arch and sarcastic parody. But strange, dark laughter that illuminates non-comedic, unfunny situations gets much less attention. In The Last Laugh: Strange Humors of Cinema, editor Murray Pomerance has assembled contributions from thirteen estimable scholars that address the strange laughter of cinema from varying intellectual perspectives and a wide range of sources. Contributors consider unusual humors in a variety of filmic settings, from the chilling unheard laughter of silent cinema to the ribald and mortal laughter in the work of Orson Welles; the vagaries and nuances of laughter in film noir to the eccentric laughter of science fiction. Essays also look at laughter in many different applications, from the subtle, underlying wit of the thriller Don’t Look Now to the deeply provocative humor of experimental film and the unpredictable, shadowy, insightful, and stunning laughter in such films as Black Swan, Henry Fool, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre, Kiss of Death, The Dark Knight, and A.I. Artificial Intelligence. The accessibly written, unique essays in The Last Laugh bring a new understanding to the delicate balance, unsettled tensions, and fragility of human affairs depicted by strange humor in film. For scholars of film and readers who love cinema, these essays will be rich and playful inspiration. Murray Pomerance is a Canadian film scholar, author, and professor who teaches in the Department of Sociology at Ryerson University and in the joint program in communication and culture at Ryerson University and York University. He has written extensively on film, cinematic experience, and performance. Most recently he authored The Eyes Have It: Cinema and the Reality Effect, Tomorrow, Alfred Hitchcock’s America, Michelangelo Red Antonioni Blue: Eight Reflections on Cinema and Edith Valmaine and is a co-editor of Hollywood’s Chosen People: The Jewish Experience in American Cinema (Wayne State University Press, 2012). Pomerance is the editor and co-editor of more than a dozen books and the editor of several book series on film at Rutgers University Press and at the State University of New York Press.

The Time of Our Lives Dirty Dancing and Popular Culture Edited by Yannis Tzioumakis and Siân Lincoln An in-depth, multidisciplinary examination of the cultural phenomenon of Dirty Dancing. A low-budget independent film made by a now defunct video company in the late 1980s, Dirty Dancing became a sleeper hit with a huge, primarily young audience. Even twenty-five years on, the film has found millions of devoted fans around the world through TV, video, and DVD releases. In The Time of Our Lives: Dirty Dancing and Popular Culture editors Yannis Tzioumakis and Siân Lincoln bring together leading scholars of film, media, music, culture, theater, dance, and sociology to examine for the first time the global cultural phenomenon of Dirty Dancing. Tzioumakis and Lincoln begin by assessing Dirty Dancing’s cultural impact in the decades since its release and introduce contributors in four sections. Essays in “Dirty Dancing in Context” look at the film from several perspectives, including its production and distribution history, its blending of genres, its treatment of race, and its place in the political and visual culture of the 1980s. In “Questions of Reception,” contributors examine the many ways that the film has been received since its release, while those in “The Production of Nostalgia” focus on the film’s often critiqued production of an idealized past. Finally, contributors in “Beyond the Film” examine the celebrated synergies that the film achieved in the “high concept” film environment of the 1980s, and the final two essays deal with the successful adaptation of the film for the stage. With the enormous cultural impact it has made over the years, Dirty Dancing offers many opportunities for thought-provoking analysis. Fans of the movie and students and scholars of cultural, performance, and film history will appreciate the insight in The Time of Our Lives. Yannis Tzioumakis is lecturer in communication and media at the University of Liverpool. He is the author and editor of five books, most recently Hollywood’s Indies: Classics Divisions, Specialty Labels and the American Film Market, and co-editor of the American Indies book series. Siân Lincoln is senior lecturer in media studies at Liverpool John Moores University. She has recently published her first book, Youth Culture and Private Space, and is working on her second, Rethinking Youth Cultures: A Critical Introduction.

The Sopranos Gary R. Edgerton Surveys the commercial importance, originality, and cultural relevance of the groundbreaking HBO series The Sopranos. From its premiere in 1999, The Sopranos captivated viewers with its easily relatable protagonist who has troubles at work and home, and went on to be one of the most critically successful shows in television history. By demonstrating that TV could be at once artistic and profitable, complex and engaging, edifying and entertaining, the series also redefined the prime-time drama. In this volume, author Gary R. Edgerton delves into the entire run of The Sopranos, integrating the existing scholarly literature, while also going much further than any previous source in exploring the series’ innovations and legacy. First, Edgerton describes and analyzes The Sopranos’ enormous business and industrial significance within the context of HBO as a network, a diversified entertainment company, and an identity brand. In chapter 2, he examines the many autobiographical influences and work experiences of creator David Chase and the narrative antecedents that informed the series’ beginnings. In chapter 3, Edgerton underscores The Sopranos’ deeply evocative sense of place, honing in especially on the cultural geography of New Jersey as representative of the nation as a whole. Finally, in chapter 4, Edgerton highlights how The Sopranos marks “A Midlife Crisis for the Gangster Genre” by illustrating some of the most profound generic transformations that took place over the course of the show, while his conclusion summarizes The Sopranos’ ongoing industrial, aesthetic, and cultural legacy. The Sopranos is widely recognized in both popular and scholarly literature as a turning point in the history and development of TV. Fans who want to learn more about the show and scholars of television history will enjoy this entertaining and educational volume. Gary R. Edgerton is dean of the College of Communication at Butler University. He was previously Eminent Scholar, Professor, and Chair of the Communication and Theatre Arts Department at Old Dominion University. Edgerton has published ten books, and more than eighty book chapters, journal articles, and encyclopedia essays on a wide variety of media and culture topics, and is co-editor of the Journal of Popular Film and Television.

The Wire Sherryl Vint Analyzes how The Wire repurposed television drama for political critique. Frequently described by creator David Simon as a novel for television, The Wire redefined the police serial format by unfolding its narrative across many episodes, constructing themes for each of its seasons, and refusing to portray individual crimes outside of their social context. While it never achieved spectacular ratings or won an Emmy during its 2002–2008 run on HBO, the show was honored with several awards and has been described by critics as the best show on television. In this volume, author Sherryl Vint takes a close look at several episodes of The Wire to argue that the series challenges our understanding of the relationship between entertainment and social critique. Informed by recent work on race, poverty, and the transformation of the American inner city through neoliberalism, Vint provides a compelling analysis of The Wire in four chapters. First, she examines the season 1 episode “The Buys” as an example of the ways in which The Wire diverges from the police procedural format. She continues by considering season 2’s “All’s Prologue” and season 3’s “Middle Ground” to explore in more detail The Wire’s critique of the exclusions of the capitalist economy. In the final two chapters, she looks at “Final Grades,” the fourth season finale, to highlight the problems with institutional inertia and show both the need for and barriers to reform, and uses the season 5 episode “Clarifications” to consider the failure of the media to adequately reflect the social issues depicted in The Wire. One of the landmark series of recent television history, The Wire is ripe for research and discussion. Fans of the series and those interested in social commentary and the media will appreciate Vint’s new analysis in this volume. Sherryl Vint is professor of science fiction media studies at the University of California, Riverside. She is the author or editor of several books on science fiction, and an editor of the journals Science Fiction Film and Television and Science Fiction Studies.

Embodying Hebrew Culture Aesthetics, Athletics, and Dance in the Jewish Community of Mandate Palestine Nina S. Spiegel Details the creation of a Hebrew cultural aesthetic that was intentionally and distinctly physical. From their conquest of Palestine in 1917 during World War I, until the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the British controlled the territory by mandate, representing a distinct cultural period in Middle Eastern history. In Embodying Hebrew Culture: Aesthetics, Athletics, and Dance in the Jewish Community of Mandate Palestine, author Nina S. Spiegel argues that the Jewish community of this era created enduring social, political, religious, and cultural forms through public events, such as festivals, performances, and celebrations. She finds that the physical character of this national public culture represents one of the key innovations of Zionism—embedding the importance of the corporeal into national Jewish life—and remains a significant feature of contemporary Israeli culture. Spiegel analyzes four significant events in this period that have either been unexplored or underexplored: the beauty competitions for Queen Esther in conjunction with the Purim carnivals in Tel Aviv from 1926 to 1929, the first Maccabiah Games or “Jewish Olympics” in Tel Aviv in 1932, the National Dance Competition for theatrical dance in Tel Aviv in 1937, and the Dalia Folk Dance Festivals at Kibbutz Dalia in 1944 and 1947. Drawing on a vast assortment of archives throughout Israel, Spiegel uses an array of untapped primary sources, from written documents to visual and oral materials, including films, photographs, posters, and interviews. Methodologically, Spiegel offers an original approach, integrating the fields of Israel studies, modern Jewish history, cultural history, gender studies, performance studies, dance theory and history, and sports studies. In this detailed, multi-disciplinary volume, Spiegel demonstrates the ways that political and social issues can influence a new society and provides a dynamic framework for interpreting present-day Israeli culture. Students and teachers of Israel studies, performance studies, and Jewish cultural history will appreciate Embodying Hebrew Culture. Nina S. Spiegel is the Rabbi Joshua Stampfer Assistant Professor of Israel Studies at Portland State University. She holds a PhD in history from Stanford University, and her articles have appeared in publications such as Jewish Cultural Studies, Jewish Folklore and Ethnology Review, and Rethinking History: The Journal of Theory and Practice. She has also served on the board of directors of the Congress on Research in Dance. June 2013, 6x9, 256 Pages, 46 Illustrations ISBN 978-0-8143-3636-6, $39.95s Hardback

Holocaust Studies

The Origins and Onset of the Romanian Holocaust Henry Eaton Explores the Romanian government’s role in the initial killing operations of the Holocaust in 1941. The first mass killings of the Romanian Holocaust in late June to early July 1941 brutally claimed thousands of victims and marked the beginning of the government’s plan to “cleanse the land” of Jews. Moreover, of all the Third Reich’s allies, only Romania undertook its genocide campaign without the intervention of Himmler’s SS. In The Origins and Onset of the Romanian Holocaust, author Henry Eaton traces the historical path to this tragedy by examining both Romania’s antisemitic history and looking at the initial mass killings in detail. First, Eaton traces the roots of the Romanian government’s decision to exterminate Jews in Romania and in its annexed areas through its long and often violent antisemitic past. While the decision to target the Jews might have been ordered by dictator Ion Antonescu and his top civil and military officials, Eaton argues that it found its basis in an entrenched cultural abuse of Jews dating back to the nineteenth century. In the second section, Eaton analyzes the Romanian government’s first killing operations: the execution of 311 Jewish men, women, and children at Stânca Rosnovanu by men of the Romanian 6th Cavalry Regiment; the great pogrom in the city of Iasi , triggered by agents of the government’s intelligence service; and the two “death trains” in which some 2,700 pogrom survivors perished in freight cars turned into ovens by the summer heat. In the final chapters, Eaton examines the victims and perpetrators in detail and addresses the possible German connections to the killings. The Origins and Onset of the Romanian Holocaust persuasively challenges the idea that Romania’s adoption of murder as state policy was due to outside pressure. Eaton’s volume will be illuminating reading for Holocaust studies scholars and readers interested in World War II history. Henry Eaton is associate professor of history (retired) at the University of North Texas. He has published a number of essays on Russian history and Romania. As a Fulbright fellow in Romania in 1990–91 he interviewed a number of survivors of the Iasi pogrom of June 1941.

Paths to Middle-Class Mobility among Second-Generation Moroccan Immigrant Women in Israel Beverly Mizrachi Investigates class mobility in a group of 40–50-year-old secondgeneration Moroccan immigrant women, members of a subordinate ethnic group in Israel. While first-generation immigrant women often begin their lives at the bottom of their new societies, the fates of their adult daughters can be very different. Still, little research has been done to examine the opportunities or constraints that second-generation women face and the class achievements they make. In this volume, author Beverly Mizrachi presents an in-depth study of 40­–50-year-old Moroccan women whose parents made up part of the largest ethnic group to enter Israel after its establishment in 1948 and whose mothers began their new lives at the bottom of the economic and social ladder. Through her analysis of the life history narratives of these women, Mizrachi reveals that they used a range and number of sites to achieve an impressive mobility into the low, middle, and high segments of the middle class. Mizrachi’s findings have implications for studying the middle-class mobility of second-generation immigrant women from subordinate groups in other Western societies. Paths to Middle-Class Mobility among Second-Generation Moroccan Immigrant Women in Israel begins by examining the historical background and culture of Jewish communities in Morocco that affected the mobility resources of the first, immigrant generation of Moroccan women in Israel and those accrued by the second generation. Mizrachi goes on to analyze the life history narratives of a group of six second-generation Moroccan women to show how they used their education, employment, gendered spousal relationships, motherhood, residential mobility, and the body to achieve their middle-class mobility. Ultimately, she finds that these women used their human agency and social structures over these multiple social sites to reach their class goals for themselves and their children while simultaneously constructing new classed and ethnicized feminine identities.

“A pioneering piece of research. The technique of in-depth interviewing brings the women into sharp focus while also illuminating a story we never knew.” —Shulamit Reinharz, Founder & Director, Hadassah-Brandeis Inst. Of Related Interest

Mizrachi’s findings integrate issues of gender, ethnicity, immigration, and class mobility in a single intriguing study. Her volume will appeal to students and teachers of sociology, anthropology, ethnography, and Middle East studies as well as readers interested in immigration and women’s studies. Beverly Mizrachi is a senior lecturer in sociology at Ashkelon Academic College in Ashkelon, Israel. She is a co-author of the book Immigrants in Israel and has published research on gender, immigration and absorption, stratification and class mobility, and the family in professional journals and anthologies.

What Keeps Me Sane

Subverting Modernism Cass Corridor Revisited, 1966–1980

Espernza M. Cintrón The 2013 winner of the Naomi Long Madgett Poetry Award winner, Esperanza Cintrón introduces four women challenged by conditions that lead her to the brink of insanity.

Julia R. Myers Exhibition catalog highlighting artists of Cass Corridor from the 1960s–1970s.

Ayio is a popular and successful author, but there are dry periods when the words refuse to come. Lily, the eldest of eighteen children, sacrifices her dreams for the need to care for her siblings. Brisa hides her emotional needs in her deep involvement in the events taking place in Puerto Rico, wearing “the mantle of revolution / like a nun’s habit.” Plum is raped and impregnated by her mother’s boyfriend who knows that “she won’t believe you.” While all four of these women are challenged mental breakdowns, each one eventually achieves a suggestion of triumph and a promise for a better future. Esperanza Cintrón was born in Detroit, Michigan, when it was a prime producer of music and automobiles and was the fifth largest city in the country with a population that exceeded 1.5 million. Her first book of poetry, Chocolate City Latina, published by Swank Press in 2005, is flavored with a bit of her African American and Boricua spice while exploring that late twentieth century metropolis “when Cadillacs Roamed the Midwest.” The city’s history and its people, especially the women who lived through the highs and lows of the Midwestern city-town, permeate her work. Cintrón studied film and communication earning both bachelor’s and master ‘s degrees from Wayne State University and a doctorate in English literature from The State University of New York at Albany. There she co-founded The Sisters of Color Writers Collective and its literary journal Seeds (1989–2006), both of which were dedicated to publishing the works of women. Her poetry and short fiction has been published in a number of anthologies including Double Stitch: Black Women Write About Mothers & Daughters, Erotique Noire/Black Erotica, Abandon Automobile (Wayne State University Press, 2001) and the journals Capirotada, 13th Moon, and The Little Magazine. She received a Michigan Council for the Arts Individual Artist grant and the Metro Times Poetry Prize, and she was a 2012 Callaloo Creative Writing Fellow. Esperanza Cintrón currently lives, writes, and teaches college in downtown Detroit.

Subverting Modernism: Cass Corridor Revisited, 1966–1980 is an exhibition catalog created to accompany a show of the same title to be held at Eastern Michigan University in the spring of 2013. In decline since the 1950s, the Cass Corridor, an area near Wayne State University in Detroit, witnessed an intense efflorescence of artistic activity in the late 1960s and the 1970s. Conventional wisdom has held that these Cass Corridor artists, as they have come to be called, were essentially “urban expressionists,” responding to the decline of post-industrial Detroit, a thesis most thoroughly set forth in Kick Out the Jams, a 1980 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Art. Subverting Modernism, a much-needed scholarly reappraisal of this art movement, debunks this notion, positing instead that each Cass Corridor artist created his or her own individual styles and meanings crossfertilized at times by his/her fellows. What does unify these artists is their reference to, but rejection of, the tenets of Modernism, which held sway, but were increasingly under attack, in New York art circles in the 1960s and early 1970s. Thus the book places the work of these Detroiters in the context of the movement from Modernism to Post-Modernism that took place in American art generally in the 1970s. Within the paradigm of subverting Modernism, certain common themes do, however, emerge. Therefore, the exhibition and catalogue are divided into the following interrelated sections: “The Critique of Pure Painting and Sculpture,” “Minimalism/Industry,” “Complexity,” “Violence, Destruction, Decay . . . and Renewal,” “Vulnerability,” “Shelter,” “Music/Dance/Industry,” and “Nature/Geometry.” Subverting Modernism represents a multi-year collaboration between Eastern Michigan University and the Wayne State University Art Collection, which, unfortunately, does not have its own exhibition space. Thus the exhibition and catalogue will allow art lovers to see important Detroit art that is not usually accessible. Author Julia R. Myers’s extensive research, which included interviewing the artists, consulting hundreds of newspaper articles from the late 1960s and 1970s, and using archival materials in both Washington, D.C., and Detroit, make for a thoroughly new look at the exciting work of these important Detroit artists. Julia R. Myers is a professor of art history at Eastern Michigan University and the author of Completing the Circle: The Art of Ruth Weisberg and Energy: Charles McGee at Eighty-Five.
