Hot Off The Press
  • 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

  • Illness or Deviance?Illness or Deviance?
    Drug Courts, Drug Treatment, and the Ambiguity of Addiction

    Jennifer Murphy

    "Jennifer Murphy's carefully researched case studies add color and nuance to our understanding of the ambiguity inherent in our policies and responses to the issue of drug addiction in American society. Illness or Deviance? makes a valuable contribution in the detail it provides regarding the 'working out' of this ambiguity in those agencies that are on the front line—the drug courts and treatment agencies. I am particularly impressed with the application of the concept 'therapeutic punishment' as this aptly describes not only what is taking place in these institutions, but I believe what drug treatment in America must inevitably do. Murphy is a skilled ethnographer and provides some very keen observations and insights."—Charles Faupel, Professor Emeritus at Auburn University, and co-author (with Greg S. Weaver and Jay Corzine) of The Sociology of American Drug Use

  • Imagined LiberationImagined Liberation
    Xenophobia, Citizenship, and Identity in South Africa, Germany, and Canada

    Heribert Adam and Kogila Moodley

    "Adam and Moodley are exceptionally well equipped and also well placed to undertake the study on xenophobia. This book is novel because it focuses on xenophobia in the South African townships. Imagined Liberation makes a major contribution by summarizing and synthesizing the current literature in the West and by exploring the relevance of these perspectives to South Africa. The insightful analyses of the issues of xenophobia and immigrant policy in Canada and Germany spell out how a better understanding of the problem in South Africa could enhance the general understanding of it."—Hermann Giliomee, Professor Emeritus of Political Studies, University of Cape Town

  • Chilean New SongChilean New Song
    The Political Power of Music, 1960s-1973

    J. Patrice McSherry

    "McSherry very clearly understands the power of la Nueva Canción in Chilean society, culture, and politics during the 1960s and 1970s, bringing to bear a solid grasp of the secondary literature and an impressive collection of oral-history interviews that give great vibrancy and life to the story of the movement. Her interviews with figures ranging from the famous—Ángel Parra and Quilapayún—to the 'behind-the-scenes' folks who were crucial to the movement's emergence, development, and success are impressive. What emerges is a treatment of la Nueva Canción that weds the cultural and the political with the real-life experiences of Chileans who were agents in the creation of the cultural-political milieu in which they circulated."—Patrick Barr-Melej, Associate Professor of History, Ohio University, and author of Reforming Chile: Cultural Politics, Nationalism, and the Rise of the Middle Class
