Hot Off The Press
  • Red War on the FamilyRed War on the Family
    Sex, Gender, and Americanism in the First Red Scare

    Erica J. Ryan

    "Red War on the Family is a compelling book. It argues that an 'Americanism' movement of the post–World War I era fused anti-Bolshevik rhetoric with anxieties about gender and sexuality to call for a return to a traditional notion of a patriarchal family that could regulate sexuality—especially female sexuality—and restore social order. With its focus on fears about the family, women, youth, and sexuality, Red War on the Family offers fresh insights into what we might call the 'long' Red Scare and contributes to the growing literature that traces the contemporary right-wing conservative movement to the 1920s."—Lynn Dumenil, Robert Glass Cleland Professor of History Emerita at Occidental College

  • Women in Politics in the American CityWomen in Politics in the American City
    Mirya R. Holman

    "Women in Politics in the American City systematically examines an important question—the impact of gender on municipal government—in a far-reaching way and at a time when we may expect women to be more likely to enter politics in the near future. The findings are compelling and represent a developing area in the scholarship on representation from a democratic theory perspective. There is simply no other work that examines women at this level of government so thoroughly." —Melissa Deckman, Louis L. Goldstein Professor of Public Affairs and Chair of the Political Science Department at Washington College in Maryland

  • The Gender KnotThe Gender Knot
    Unraveling Our Patriarchal Legacy
    Third Edition

    Allan G. Johnson

    "One of the foremost contributors to our understanding of gender, Allan Johnson has an exceptional grasp of the costs of patriarchy for both women and men. The Gender Knot illuminates vast areas of previously unexamined and unnamed effects of ‘power over’ social systems and provides a beacon of hope and a message of courage. This book is brilliant and life-changing. Anyone who wants to rekindle a belief in the possibility of a more just and equitable world should read it. Anyone who wants to participate in creating urgently needed social change must read it." —Judith V Jordan, Ph.D., Director of the Jean Baker Miller Training Institute, Wellesley Centers for Women, and Assistant Professor, Harvard Medical School

  • 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

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

    Trimiko Melancon

    "Unbought and Unbossed is an eloquently written and well-organized book about an important era in black women's literary tradition." —LaMonda Horton Stallings, Associate Professor of Gender Studies at Indiana University Bloomington and author of Mutha' Is Half a Word: Intersections of Folklore, Vernacular, Myth, and Queerness in Black Female Culture
