Hot Off The Press
  • Deregulating DesireDeregulating Desire
    Flight Attendant Activism, Family Politics, and Workplace Justice
    Ryan Patrick Murphy

    "[A] stunning cultural analysis of political economy that explicates both the rise of neoliberal economic policies within the airline industry and flight attendants' creative, activist response. Ryan Patrick Murphy shows us how the ‘family values economy’ came to operate and how flight attendants exploited the fissures within it. At this moment of divergent political responses to economic emergency, Murphy's tale is as necessary as it is gripping."
    —Nan Enstad, University of Wisconsin–Madison

  • Four GermanysFour Germanys
    A Chronicle of the Schorcht Family

    Donald S. Pitkin
    Foreword by John C. Torpey

    "[A] real page-turner. Pitkin presents the social transformation of what is now eastern Germany through several major regime changes. He offers a masterful blend of oral history, secondary history, and archival data analysis that illuminates the relationship between local and macro-events. Pitkin's balanced ethnographic account of the County of Weimar, home to the Schorcht family, is a revealing examination of the texture of rural life outside the urban centers. This is an important case study."
    —Jane Schneider, the Graduate Center, City University of New York

  • The Gendered ExecutiveThe Gendered Executive
    A Comparative Analysis of Presidents, Prime Ministers, and Chief Executives

    Edited by Janet M. Martin and MaryAnne Borrelli

    "This collection of uniformly strong essays spans several disciplines with a central focus on gender and executive politics. It disrupts the status quo and challenges scholars to examine questions long neglected in the study of political executives. Approached from a cross-national perspective, The Gendered Executive is likely to have a significant impact on the way scholars study executive politics for years to come."
    —Michael A. Genovese, President, World Policy Institute at Loyola Marymount University
