  • Breaking Womenby Jill A. McCorkel

    NYU Press 2013; US$ 89.00

    Since the 1980s, when the War on Drugs kicked into high gear and prison populations soared, the increase in women’s rate of incarceration has steadily outpaced that of men. In  Breaking Wome n, Jill A. McCorkel draws upon four years of on-the-ground research in a major US women’s prison to uncover why tougher drug policies have so greatly... more...

  • Making Race in the Courtroomby Kenneth R. Aslakson

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 42.00

    No American city?s history better illustrates both the possibilities for alternative racial models and the role of the law in shaping racial identity than New Orleans, Louisiana, which prior to the Civil War was home to America?s most privileged community of people of African descent. In the eyes of the law, New Orleans?s free people of color did... more...

  • A Great Conspiracy against Our Raceby Peter G. Vellon

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 38.00

    Racial history has always been the thorn in America?s side, with a swath of injustices?slavery, lynching, segregation, and many other ills?perpetrated against black people. This very history is complicated by, and also dependent on, what constitutes a white person in this country. Many of the European immigrant groups now considered white have also... more...

  • Sounds of Belongingby Dolores Ines Casillas

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 22.00

    The last two decades have produced continued Latino population growth, and marked shifts in both communications and immigration policy. Since the 1990s, Spanish- language radio has dethroned English-language radio stations in major cities across the United States, taking over the number one spot in Los Angeles, Houston, Miami, and New York City. Investigating... more...

  • Children and Youth During the Gilded Age and Progressive Eraby James Marten; Paula S. Fass

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 22.95

    In the decades after the Civil War, urbanization, industrialization, and immigration marked the start of the Gilded Age, a period of rapid economic growth but also social upheaval. Reformers responded to the social and economic chaos with a ?search for order,? as famously described by historian Robert Wiebe. Most reformers agreed that one of the nation?s... more...

  • Forgotten Trials of the Holocaustby Michael J. Bazyler; Frank M. Tuerkheimer

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 36.00

    In the wake of the Second World War, how were the Allies to respond to the enormous crime of the Holocaust? Even in an ideal world, it would have been impossible to bring all the perpetrators to trial. Nevertheless, an attempt was made to prosecute some. Most people have heard of the Nuremberg trial and the Eichmann trial, though they probably have... more...

  • America?s Safest Cityby Simon I. Singer

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 22.00

    Since the mid-1990s, the fast-growing suburb of Amherst, NY has been voted by numerous publications as one of the safest places to live in America. Yet, like many of America?s seemingly idyllic suburbs, Amherst is by no means without crime?especially when it comes to adolescents. In  America?s Safest City , noted juvenile justice scholar Simon I.... more...

  • Chronic Youthby Julie Passanante Elman

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 21.25

    The teenager has often appeared in culture as an anxious figure, the repository for American dreams and worst nightmares, at once on the brink of success and imminent failure. Spotlighting the ?troubled teen? as a site of pop cultural, medical, and governmental intervention, Chronic Youth traces the teenager as a figure through which broad threats... more...

  • Parental Incarceration and the Familyby Joyce A. Arditti

    NYU Press 2012; US$ 69.00

    Over 2% of U.S. children under the age of 18--more than 1,700,000 children--have a parent in prison. These children experience very real disadvantages when compared to their peers: they tend to experience lower levels of educational success, social exclusion, and even a higher likelihood of their own future incarceration. Meanwhile, their new caregivers... more...

  • The Empire Strikes Backby Arthur D. Austin

    NYU Press 1998; US$ 89.00

    Once dismissed as plodding and superfluous, legal scholarship is increasingly challenging the liberal white male establishment that currently dominates legal education and practice. The most significant development since the emergence of the casebook, at the turn of the century, this trend has unleashed a fierce political struggle. At stake is nothing... more...
