Hot Off The Press
  • Transformations of WarfareTransformations of Warfare in the Contemporary World
    Edited by John Torpey and David Jacobson

    "The book's strength lies in the fact that the contributors engage with the developments in modern warfare yet have that reflexive capacity to see some of the problematic sides. This collection fills a real gap in the literature."
    —Andreas Hess, University College Dublin and author of The Political Theory of Judith N. Shklar: Exile from Exile



  • Ghostly EncountersGhostly Encounters
    The Hauntings of Everyday Life

    Dennis Waskul with Michele Waskul

    "[A] compelling book that relates the ways and means of interpreting everyday life among people who not only believe in ghosts but also have made ghosts a part of their very being. The authors are committed to capturing 'ghostly reason,' the emotional, intellectual, dramatic, and enigmatic stances that are vital aspects of believing in ghosts."
    —Jeffrey E. Nash, Professor Emeritus at Missouri State University



  • American DunkirkAmerican Dunkirk
    The Waterborne Evacuation of Manhattan on 9/11

    James Kendra and Tricia Wachtendorf

    “Weaving a purposeful, compelling story of a particular aspect of the 9/11 tragedy, Kendra and Wachtendorf provide a firm grounding in the social sciences to interpret their observations.... American Dunkirk's core philosophical questions about the orthodoxy of both tactical and strategic thinking in emergency management provide food for thought.”
    —Jack Rozdilsky, York University, Canada



  • Exploring the RootsExploring the Roots of Digital and Media Literacy through Personal Narrative
    Renee Hobbs

    “[O]ffers a view on some of the earlier intellectual roots that ground the complex, multiply-defined constructs of digital literacy and media literacy.”
    —Rebecca Reynolds, Rutgers University
