  • Against Capital in the Twenty-First CenturyAgainst Capital in the Twenty-First Century
    A Reader of Radical Undercurrents

    Edited by John Asimakopoulos and Richard Gilman-Opalsky

    "[A] formidable—and highly original—contribution to the literature....Empowering and liberating in equal measure, a particular strength is the richness, nuance, and impressive depth of insight and analysis, driven by an uncompromised intent to move society beyond the entrenched and intersectional crises faced at this time....I hope that it will be read widely, and repeatedly."
    Richard J. White, Sheffield Hallam University

  • Latino MayorsLatino Mayors
    Political Change in the Postindustrial City

    Edited by Marion Orr and Domingo Morel, with a Foreword by Luis Ricardo Fraga

    "Understanding Latina/os' political behavior, voting and attitudes as manifest in national politics has been an important and essential scholarly task. However, that focus has often overshadowed the politics of and in other arenas of U.S. politics. This well-crafted set of case studies highlights and demonstrates the significance of local elections and, perhaps more importantly, urban governance. As such, Latino Mayors represents a very substantial contribution to research on Latina/os in American politics."
    Rodney Hero, Raul Yzaguirre Chair in the School of Politics and Global Studies at Arizona State University

  • Fernando Ortiz on MusicFernando Ortiz on Music
    Selected Writing on Afro-Cuban Culture

    Edited and with an Introduction by Robin D. Moore

    "Informed by Moore's deep knowledge of Afro-Cuban music and culture, this anthology makes the work of legendary anthropologist Fernando Ortiz available in English for the first time. Fernando Ortiz on Music is both a superb window into Afro-Cuban culture and into the history of black studies in the Americas."
    Alejandro de la Fuente, Afro-Latin American Research Institute, Harvard University



  • Toward a Pragmatist SociologyToward a Pragmatist Sociology
    John Dewey and the Legacy of C. Wright Mills

    Robert G. Dunn

    "With Toward a Pragmatist Sociology, Robert Dunn has taken on a massive intellectual task, the goal of which is to reinvigorate the discipline of sociology. One of the early roots of the field, a deep concern for the practical betterment of society, never achieved a high or sustained status within the disciplinary boundaries. While C. Wright Mills is well known, Dunn's ability to seamlessly and convincingly resituate Mills in the pragmatist tradition will surprise many."
    Troy Duster, Chancellor's Professor Emeritus, University of California, Berkeley
