  • Communities and CrimeCommunities and Crime
    An Enduring American Challenge

    Pamela Wilcox, Francis T. Cullen, and Ben Feldmeyer

    "Wilcox, Cullen, and Feldmeyer have done the field a major service with this powerful and timely review of enduring neighborhood stratification and its consequences for crime. Communities and Crime is theoretically rich and exhaustively comprehensive, which makes for an invaluable contribution to the study of neighborhood processes. Communities and Crime will be widely read and cited across disciplines."
    Eric A. Stewart, Ronald L. Simons Professor of Criminology at Florida State University

  • We Decide!We Decide!
    Theories and Cases in Participatory Democracy

    Michael Menser

    "Michael Menser's We Decide! is a major advance in the ongoing effort to develop a coherent strategy for achieving a democratic world. His work powerfully brings together academic analysis and empirical research ranging from participatory budgeting and worker cooperatives to larger scale democratic economic forms like Mondragon in Spain and consumer co-operative complexes in Japan. Menser challenges us to achieve a much more sophisticated and strategic analysis of how to move forward to democratic systemic change. A must read for the growing number of activists and scholars seeking genuine transformative paths to and through the Trump era and beyond."
    Gar Alperovitz, Co-Founder of the Democracy Collaborative and Co-Chair of its Next System Project, and author of What Then Must We Do?: Straight Talk about the Next American Revolution

  • From Slave Ship to SupermaxFrom Slave Ship to Supermax
    Mass Incarceration, Prisoner Abuse, and the New Neo-Slave Novel

    Patrick Elliot Alexander

    "From Slave Ship to Supermax presents a highly accessible set of ideas to engage Black creative works beyond the literary realm. This work contributes a fresh perspective to the emerging discourses of U.S. and global carceral studies."
    Dylan Rodríguez, University of California, Riverside, and author of Forced Passages: Imprisoned Radical Intellectuals and the U.S. Prison Regime and Suspended Apocalypse: White Supremacy, Genocide, and the Filipino Condition

  • Against the Deportation TerrorAgainst the Deportation Terror
    Organizing for Immigrant Rights in the Twentieth Century

    Rachel Ida Buff

    "In Against the Deportation Terror, Rachel Buff brings to light a critical but forgotten legacy of multiracial immigrant rights organizing and advocacy. This compelling and timely history provides lessons and insights valuable to today's efforts to counteract mass detention and deportation of a new generation of immigrants."
    Eunice Hyunhye Cho, immigrant rights attorney and advocate

  • Phil Jasner On the CasePhil Jasner "On the Case"
    His Best Writing on the Sixers, the Dream Team, and Beyond

    Edited by Andy Jasner

    "While the rain of information poured on the mob of reporters, Phil would also work between the rain drops, remaining long after everyone in the locker room was gone. There were the phone calls after midnight, asking questions... always asking questions. And when it came time to dispense the information, there was the angle—that unique angle that made each and every story special. His style was reminiscent of one of his role models, the late Philadelphia columnist Stan Hochman—observing the grit and grind of city sports from street level, getting the humanity of it all. Phil Jasner 'On the Case' is the best... of Phil's best."
    Marc Zumoff, Philadelphia 76ers TV voice, Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia

  • Believing in Cleveland
    Managing Decline in "The Best Location in the Nation"

    J. Mark Souther

    "[A]n important contribution to urban policy scholarship. Instead of starkly alternating accounts of revitalization or decline, Souther shows that decline and resurgence have always coexisted in post-World War II metropolitan life. By including the downtown, residential neighborhoods, and industry in the same history—one that foregrounds citizens' best and worst efforts on behalf of their entire metropolis—this book upends clichés of monolithic, hollow boosterism and an artificial center/suburb divide. Cleveland offers a powerful story in its own right, but most U.S. cities will see themselves reflected in this illuminating mirror."
    Alison Isenberg, Princeton University, and author of Designing San Francisco: Art, Land, and Urban Renewal in the City by the Bay

  • Exploiting the Wilderness
    An Analysis of Wildlife Crime

    Greg L. Warchol

    "I have spent many years in Africa watching elephants, rhinos, and other animals that are now being pushed toward extinction by the horrific wildlife trade. Greg Warchol writes about this from years of his own personal research, covering all angles. For anyone wanting to learn more about the problem, and possible solutions, I highly recommend this book."
    Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE, Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute, United Nations Messenger of Peace

  • Finding the Hidden CityPhiladelphia
    Finding the Hidden City

    Joseph E. B. Elliott, Nathaniel Popkin, and Peter Woodall

    "With stunning photographs and vivid prose, Philadelphia: Finding the Hidden City takes us on a fascinating journey through the submerged urban realm and provides an essential Baedeker to Philadelphia's past by offering entrée to its hidden places of privilege, production, and prayer."
    Michael Z. Wise, author of Capital Dilemma: Germany's Search for a New Architecture of Democracy
