  • Somalis in the Twin Cities and ColumbusSomalis in the Twin Cities and Columbus
    Immigrant Incorporation in New Destinations

    Stefanie Chambers

    "[A] very timely and powerful contribution to the national debate on the admission of Muslim refugee immigrants to the American heartland. By judiciously comparing the political, economic, and social incorporation of Somalis in two distinct urban settings, Chambers demonstrates convincingly the crucial roles of historical context, state culture, and public policy in defining the degrees of success in immigrant integration."
    Pei-te Lien, University of California Santa Barbara, and co-author of Contested Transformation: Race, Gender, and Political Leadership in 21st Century America

  • Risking Life and LensRisking Life and Lens
    A Photographic Memoir

    Helen M. Stummer

    "[A]n extraordinarily personal glimpse into the life and work of a photographer who has spent her career consumed with documenting social injustice and those it has affected most.... This book is a must-read for anyone interested in the humanity of our urban cities."
    John Cyr, photographer and author of Developer Trays

With a stunning collection of photographs accompanied by engaging new scholarship, this book is sure to have a vital and important impact on the way Americans see our nation and ourselves."

  • Resurrecting SlaveryResurrecting Slavery
    Racial Legacies and White Supremacy in France

    Crystal Marie Fleming

    "The French believe racism is something that affects other societies. Fleming's Resurrecting Slavery has forever exploded this myth! Based on over a hundred in-depth interviews, archival work, and ethnographic observations, this book demonstrates convincingly that France is indeed shaped by white supremacy. A major contribution to our scholarly work on racial formations, Resurrecting Slavery is a book I intend to assign to my classes for years to come."
    Eduardo Bonilla-Silva, Professor of Sociology, Duke University, and author of Racism without Racists: Color-Blind Racism and the Persistence of Racial Inequality in America

    Judah M. Cohen, Lou & Sybil Mervis Professor in the Study of Jewish Culture at Indiana University, and author of The Making of a Reform Jewish Cantor: Musical Authority, Cultural Investment
