    NYU Press 2014; US$ 133.50

    In popular culture, management in the media industry is frequently understood as the work of network executives, studio developers, and market researchers—"the suits"—who oppose the more productive forces of creative talent and subject that labor to the inefficiencies and risk aversion of bureaucratic hierarchies.

  • Aztlán and Arcadiaby Roberto Ramón Lint Sagarena

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    In the wake of the Mexican-American War, competing narratives of religious conquest and re-conquest were employed by Anglo American and ethnic Mexican Californians to make sense of their place in North America.

    From St. Louis to New Orleans, from Baltimore to Oklahoma City, there are poor and minority neighborhoods so beset by pollution that just living in them can be hazardous to your health.

Things become meaningful through our... more...

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 112.50

    In Historically Black , Mieka Brand Polanco examines the concept of community in the United States: how communities are experienced and understood, the complex relationship between human beings and their social and physical landscapes—and how the term "community" is sometimes conjured to feign a cohesiveness that may not actually exist.... more...

    Scholars of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that Black Americans were cannibalized.

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 67.50

    "It has ever been the boast of the Jewish people, that they support their own poor," declared Kentucky attorney Benjamin Franklin Jonas in 1856.
