    Slavery, the President's House at Independence National Historical Park, and Public Memory

    Roger C. Aden

    "Upon the Ruins of Liberty is an eye-opening book that tells the untold story of President George Washington's house and the slaves he kept there. Well-written, illuminating, and provocative, it will cause us to reconsider the history we've all been taught—this is a work of importance." —Elijah Anderson, Yale University, author of The Cosmopolitan Canopy and Code of the Street

  • Navigating Gendered TerrainNavigating Gendered Terrain
    Stereotypes and Strategy in Political Campaigns

    Kelly Dittmar

    "Scholars and practitioners alike still have much to learn about the role of gender in political campaigns and elections. In Navigating Gendered Terrain, Dittmar provides a comprehensive understanding of the nuances of how gender-based considerations are managed in electoral settings. Her empirical analysis and interviews provide insight on gender in both election outcomes and representation. Navigating Gendered Terrain makes a valuable contribution to the literature on this important topic." —Costas Panagopoulos, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Center for Electoral Politics and the Master's Program in Elections and Campaign Management at Fordham University, and editor of Public Financing in American Elections

  • Red War on the FamilyRed War on the Family
    Sex, Gender, and Americanism in the First Red Scare

    Erica J. Ryan

    "Red War on the Family is a compelling book. It argues that an 'Americanism' movement of the post–World War I era fused anti-Bolshevik rhetoric with anxieties about gender and sexuality to call for a return to a traditional notion of a patriarchal family that could regulate sexuality—especially female sexuality—and restore social order. With its focus on fears about the family, women, youth, and sexuality, Red War on the Family offers fresh insights into what we might call the 'long' Red Scare and contributes to the growing literature that traces the contemporary right-wing conservative movement to the 1920s."—Lynn Dumenil, Robert Glass Cleland Professor of History Emerita at Occidental College

  • Women in Politics in the American CityWomen in Politics in the American City
    Mirya R. Holman

    "Women in Politics in the American City systematically examines an important question—the impact of gender on municipal government—in a far-reaching way and at a time when we may expect women to be more likely to enter politics in the near future. The findings are compelling and represent a developing area in the scholarship on representation from a democratic theory perspective. There is simply no other work that examines women at this level of government so thoroughly." —Melissa Deckman, Louis L. Goldstein Professor of Public Affairs and Chair of the Political Science Department at Washington College in Maryland
