  • A Road to Peace and Freedom"A Road to Peace and Freedom"
    The International Workers Order and the Struggle for Economic Justice and Civil Rights, 1930–1954

    Robert M. Zecker

    "Based on extremely impressive research, 'A Road to Peace and Freedom' offers the first comprehensive history of the International Workers Order, a large Communist-initiated federation of immigrant insurance benefit societies that also lobbied for the rights of workers and the foreign-born. Zecker makes his arguments concrete by looking at the lives and aspirations of rank-and-file members. His book is a fascinating analysis of an organization, and well-positioned within a historiography open to seeing positive contributions by Communists."
    David Roediger, Foundation Professor of American Studies at the University of Kansas

  • Selling Transracial AdoptionSelling Transracial Adoption
    Families, Markets, and the Color Line

    Elizabeth Raleigh

    Raleigh's eye-opening book provides a fine-grained analysis of the business decisions in the adoption industry and what it teaches us about notions of kinship and race.

  • The Cost of Being a GirlThe Cost of Being a Girl
    Working Teens and the Origins of the Gender Wage Gap

    Yasemin Besen-Cassino

    "The American gender wage gap remains a yawning chasm, but people are looking for the cause in the wrong place, argues sociology professor Besen-Cassino in this fascinating study.... This essential look at the origins of the persistent spread between a woman's lifetime earning potential and a man's casts a startling new light on an old problem."
    Publishers Weekly

  • Communities and CrimeCommunities and Crime
    An Enduring American Challenge

    Pamela Wilcox, Francis T. Cullen, and Ben Feldmeyer

    "Wilcox, Cullen, and Feldmeyer have done the field a major service with this powerful and timely review of enduring neighborhood stratification and its consequences for crime. Communities and Crime is theoretically rich and exhaustively comprehensive, which makes for an invaluable contribution to the study of neighborhood processes. Communities and Crime will be widely read and cited across disciplines."
    Eric A. Stewart, Ronald L. Simons Professor of Criminology at Florida State University

  • We Decide!We Decide!
    Theories and Cases in Participatory Democracy

    Michael Menser

    "Michael Menser's We Decide! is a major advance in the ongoing effort to develop a coherent strategy for achieving a democratic world. His work powerfully brings together academic analysis and empirical research ranging from participatory budgeting and worker cooperatives to larger scale democratic economic forms like Mondragon in Spain and consumer co-operative complexes in Japan. Menser challenges us to achieve a much more sophisticated and strategic analysis of how to move forward to democratic systemic change. A must read for the growing number of activists and scholars seeking genuine transformative paths to and through the Trump era and beyond."
    Gar Alperovitz, Co-Founder of the Democracy Collaborative and Co-Chair of its Next System Project, and author of What Then Must We Do?: Straight Talk about the Next American Revolution
