  • 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

  • Ethnic Renewal in Philadelphia's ChinatownEthnic Renewal in Philadelphia's Chinatown
    Space, Place, and Struggle

    Kathryn E. Wilson

    "As the first book about Philadelphia's Chinatown, Wilson's study is valuable for drawing our attention to the exploits of a cadre of community activists and public figures who helped defend against redevelopment in the 1970s and mount challenges to urban renewal in the following decades. Her narrative resonates with ethnographic richness, especially through her use of first-person oral histories and exceptional visual documentation. Ethnic Renewal in Philadelphia's Chinatown also reveals flash points of conflict and collaboration among activists and organizations in preserving the past while planning for the urban future."—Jan Lin, Professor of Sociology, Occidental College, and author of Reconstructing Chinatown: Ethnic Enclave, Global Change

  • Racial FeelingsRacial Feelings
    Asian America in a Capitalist Culture of Emotion

    Jeffrey Santa Ana

    "Jeffrey Santa Ana's Racial Feelings is an engaging and generative study that significantly enhances our understanding of Asian American cultural politics by mapping the complex convergence of affect and political economy that has made and remade Asian America. With its focus on how Asian American cultural texts make legible the intersections of capitalist development and affective subject formation, Racial Feelings illuminates how it feels to be economically constituted, and in doing so provides an immensely useful critical framework for appreciating the capacities and implications of Asian American critique across diverse contexts."—Victor Bascara, University of California, Los Angeles

  • Knowledge LTDKnowledge LTD
    Toward a Social Logic of the Derivative

    Randy Martin

    "Knowledge LTD is the summa of Randy Martin's scholarship. It brings together his vast knowledge of politics, policy, and programming; his devoted study of political economy; and his long and deep involvement in cultural studies, seen here through the scrim of dance in order to show the derivative as the social logic of our times. Knowledge LTD is a stunning empirical endeavor—what all sociologists, if not all social scientists, should now take as a starting point for studying the social."—Patricia Ticineto Clough, Professor of Sociology and Women's Studies, Queens College and the Graduate Center, City University of New York, and author of Autoaffection: Unconscious Thought in the Age of Teletechnology
