Hot Off The Press
  • The Forest and the TreesThe Forest and the Trees
    Sociology as Life, Practice, and Promise
    Third Edition

    Allan G. Johnson

    "There is no better book to help college students understand the sociological mindset. In the tradition of Peter Berger's Invitation to Sociology, Johnson speaks directly to students in clear language, using strong examples to clarify key sociological concepts, such as culture, structure, socialization, and privilege. For students who have not perceived their own privileged status, this serves as a challenging but affirming first step toward sociological self-awareness." —Terence J. McGinn, The University of Michigan

  • The OutsiderThe Outsider
    Albert M. Greenfield and the Fall of the Protestant Establishment

    Dan Rottenberg

    "The curse of history is that it inevitably becomes hazy. The beauty of history is its come-alive revival in Dan Rottenberg's eloquent and meticulously researched The Outsider. As Rottenberg so marvelously shows, Albert M. Greenfield wore a multitude of top hats: real estate, hotels, retail, newspapers, even candy. He was also a marvelous contradiction: a street hustler but of impeccable manner, ruthless in the art of the deal but dedicated to civil rights, the object of despicable anti-Semitism but never of any grudge. What emerges is not simply an indelible portrayal of a great Philadelphian but a great and timeless American." —Buzz Bissinger, author of A Prayer for the City and Friday Night Lights

  • Unbought and UnbossedUnbought and Unbossed
    Transgressive Black Women, Sexuality, and Representation
