  • The Collision of Political and Legal Time
The Collision of Political and Legal Time
    Foreign Affairs and the Supreme Court's Transformation of Executive Authority

    Kimberley L. Fletcher

    "Professor Fletcher lends an American political development approach to the president's power in foreign policy. The rise of executive authority emerges as a form of institution building, with the architect being the Supreme Court. Operating in legal time, the Court has constructed, stabilized, and checked a major political order. The Collision of Political and Legal Time places foreign policy alongside domestic accounts of political development, and it makes us think once again about the institutional resources that make the Court an agent of change."
    Kathleen Sullivan, Ohio University

  • Democratizing Urban DevelopmentDemocratizing Urban Development
    Community Organizations for Housing across the United States and Brazil

    Maureen M. Donaghy

    "Democratizing Urban Development is a particularly noteworthy book with an especially appealing four-city, North-South scope. In command of a vast literature, Donaghy offers an inspired analysis that links social movement with urban development struggles. The combination of housing and urban work makes this book a pathbreaking volume for comparative urban research."
    Clarence Stone, George Washington University

  • Constructing the Patriarchal CityConstructing the Patriarchal City
    Gender and the Built Environments of London, Dublin, Toronto, and Chicago, 1870s into the 1940s

    Maureen A. Flanagan

    "...revealing and oftentimes provocative; [this book] will generate some new ideas for teaching urban history....The four Anglo-Atlantic case studies work effectively to illustrate how key cultural and political factors influenced policies and practices but did not, ultimately, make huge differences in the gendered world of urban spaces and planning practices. The clarity of the author's explanations of feminist geography and the complex ideas provide real insight and challenges for rethinking our paradigms."
    Janice L. Reiff, University of California, Los Angeles

  • Healing Our Divided SocietyHealing Our Divided Society
    Investing in America Fifty Years after the Kerner Report

    Edited by Fred Harris and Alan Curtis
    An Eisenhower Foundation Book

    "It's been fifty years since the Kerner Commission offered a wake-up call long in the making, holding up a mirror to confront the reality of a society deeply divided by both race and economic status....This book is a must-read for anyone who is tired of the status quo and in need of both the inspiration to make a difference and proof that there's still time to do it."
    John F. Kerry, sixty-eighth U.S. Secretary of State
