Hot Off The Press
  • New AdvancesNew Advances in the Study of Civic Voluntarism
    Resources, Engagement, and Recruitment

    Edited by Casey A. Klofstad

    "[A]n excellent contemporary companion volume to Voice and Equality, which has been the go-to book for anyone attempting to understand or teach about political participation for the past 20 years. Klofstad and his contributors make it clear how the theories and findings of that important book continue to inform our studies today. The impressive scholarship assembled here by leaders in the study of participation highlights the important advances in the literature since Voice and Equality was published, and points us all fruitfully toward the future of the field."
    —Katherine Cramer, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Morgridge Center for Public Service, University of Wisconsin-Madison

  • Transformations of WarfareTransformations of Warfare in the Contemporary World
    Edited by John Torpey and David Jacobson

    "The book's strength lies in the fact that the contributors engage with the developments in modern warfare yet have that reflexive capacity to see some of the problematic sides. This collection fills a real gap in the literature."
    —Andreas Hess, University College Dublin and author of The Political Theory of Judith N. Shklar: Exile from Exile

  • Ghostly EncountersGhostly Encounters
    The Hauntings of Everyday Life

    Dennis Waskul with Michele Waskul

    "[A] compelling book that relates the ways and means of interpreting everyday life among people who not only believe in ghosts but also have made ghosts a part of their very being. The authors are committed to capturing 'ghostly reason,' the emotional, intellectual, dramatic, and enigmatic stances that are vital aspects of believing in ghosts."
    —Jeffrey E. Nash, Professor Emeritus at Missouri State University

    The Waterborne Evacuation of Manhattan on 9/11

    James Kendra and Tricia Wachtendorf

    “Weaving a purposeful, compelling story of a particular aspect of the 9/11 tragedy, Kendra and Wachtendorf provide a firm grounding in the social sciences to interpret their observations.... American Dunkirk's core philosophical questions about the orthodoxy of both tactical and strategic thinking in emergency management provide food for thought.”
    —Jack Rozdilsky, York University, Canada
