  • The Hirschfeld ArchivesThe Hirschfeld Archives
    Violence, Death, and Modern Queer Culture

    Heike Bauer

    The Hirschfeld Archives brings the fragments of queer experience together to reveal many unknown and interesting accounts of LGBTQ life in the early twentieth century, and also illuminates the fact that homosexual rights politics were haunted from the beginning by racism, colonial brutality, and gender violence.

  • Journeys in SociologyJourneys in Sociology
    From First Encounters to Fulfilling Retirements

    Edited by Rosalyn Benjamin Darling and Peter J. Stein

    "[A] fascinating blend of memoir and social meaning, revealing how history and social location play out in lives and careers....The collection is rich in detail about how eminent scholars remake themselves over the life course and how they continue their sociology after retirement. It is a delightful read."
    Maxine Baca Zinn, Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Michigan State University, and co-author of Diversity in Families

  • Empowered by DesignEmpowered by Design
    Decentralization and the Gender Policy Trifecta

    Meg Rincker

    A significant contribution to the study of representation and gendered implications of decentralization, as well as how representatives go about understanding and aggregating our diverse policy preferences. 

  • Pennsylvania Stories—Well ToldPennsylvania Stories—Well Told
    William Ecenbarger

    "If Pennsylvania had a poet laureate, it would be Bill Ecenbarger. Throughout a long career as one of the most distinguished journalists in the state, he has captured the Commonwealth's unique spirit—in all its glory and all its eccentricity. Pennsylvania Stories—Well Told pulls together the best of his best stories, each impeccably researched and beautifully written....I heartily recommend this book."
    Former Governor Richard L. Thornburgh

  • Shaming the ConstitutionShaming the Constitution
    The Detrimental Results of Sexual Violent Predator Legislation

    Michael L. Perlin and Heather Ellis Cucolo

    "With standout sophistication and depth, the authors interweave law with social and behavioral sciences to lay the foundation for a scathing critique of current policy, advancing the public discourse especially by their discussions of international and comparative law and therapeutic jurisprudence. This book is a must-read for policy makers, advocates, judges, and students of sexual violence prevention."
    Eric S. Janus, Professor of Law and former President and Dean, Mitchell Hamline School of Law
