  • Ghosts of Organizations PastGhosts of Organizations Past
    Communities of Organizations as Settings for Change

    Dan Ryan

    "Ghosts of Organizations provides an important analysis of system collaboration around health issues. Ryan's examination of the development and implementation of Fighting Back in New Haven—an initiative to combat drug abuse by creating program interventions from a large number of agencies—is detailed, coherent, beautifully data-anchored, and theoretically elegant. He presents a solid understanding of the relationship between the system of health care and the community. This book is strong, effective, and important."—Carl Milofsky, Professor of Sociology at Bucknell University and co-editor of Handbook of Community Movements and Local Organizations

  • The New York Young Lords and the Struggle for LiberationThe New York Young Lords and the Struggle for Liberation
    Darrel Wanzer-Serrano

    "The New York Young Lords and the Struggle for Liberation is a thoroughly documented history of an iconic organization of the Puerto Rican diaspora. Darrel Wanzer-Serrano presents a sustained theoretical argument and well-contextualized account of the Young Lords' origins and emergence. He draws from oral histories and memoirs to argue that the Young Lords, at their best, represented a creative and principled effort at uplifting society's marginalized peoples. The writing attains eloquence and innovatively situates the Young Lords' experience in recent social movements literature."—Andrés Torres, Lehman College, City University of New York, and co-editor (with José E. Velázquez) of The Puerto Rican Movement

  • Not from HereNot from Here
    A Memoir

    Allan G. Johnson

    "What it means to be white, what it means to be American, and what it means to be from a place and to belong to it are questions that Johnson raises throughout the book. He is painfully aware that as a descendant of those who took the land from others, dispossessing and displacing them, he is today the beneficiary of acts he did not perform. . . . [T]hose expecting a son's gentle memoir will be in for a surprise."—Kirkus Reviews


  • The Identity DilemmaThe Identity Dilemma
    Social Movements and Collective Identity

    edited by Aidan McGarry and James M. Jasper

    "In The Identity Dilemma, McGarry and Jasper assemble the work of a diverse and talented group of scholars who together shed light on the crucial role of collective identity in contemporary social movements in a range of national settings. Building on recent scholarship that has revolutionized research on social movements in the last decades, this book stands out for its careful attention to the role of emotions in social movements as well as to various dilemmas that militants and movements face. This contribution is a must-read for social scientists interested in stimulating and studying social change."—Michele Lamont, Weatherhead Center for International Affairs, Harvard University, and co-editor (with Nissim Mizrachi) of Responses to Stigmatization in Comparative Perspective

  • The New Freedom and the RadicalsThe New Freedom and the Radicals
    Woodrow Wilson, Progressive Views of Radicalism, and the Origins of Repressive Tolerance

    Jacob Kramer

    "The New Freedom and the Radicals is the first attempt to broadly understand the relationship between progressives and radicals. Kramer offers an answer to the question of the origins of 'repressive tolerance' in the early 20th century. Well written and featuring a good analysis and integration of both primary and secondary materials, Kramer maintains a dispassionate approach to sensitive and timely issues, such as the limits on democracy and the challenges faced by dissenters during times of national stress. He has chosen a group of important and influential progressive figures and shown how their views or positions on violence and radicalism changed or were modified over time. As a work of intellectual history The New Freedom and the Radicals succeeds admirably."—Philip Yale Nicholson, Professor Emeritus of History, Nassau Community College, and author of Labor's Story in the United States
