  • Blood and Beliefby Aliza Marcus

    NYU Press 2007; US$ 89.00

    The Kurds, who number some 28 million people in the Middle East, have no country they can call their own. Long ignored by the West, Kurds are now highly visible actors on the world's political stage. More than half live in Turkey, where the Kurdish struggle has gained new strength and attention since the U.S. overthrow of Saddam Hussein in neighboring... more...

  • God and Blacknessby Andrea C. Abrams

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    Blackness, as a concept, is extremely fluid: it can refer to cultural and ethnic identity, socio-political status, an aesthetic and embodied way of being, a social and political consciousness, or a diasporic kinship. It is used as a description of skin color ranging from the palest cream to the richest chocolate; as a marker of enslavement, marginalization,... more...

  • Postracial Mystiqueby Catherine R. Squires

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    Despite claims from pundits and politicians that we now live in a post-racial America, people seem to keep finding ways to talk about race—from celebrations of the inauguration of the first  Black  president to resurgent debates about police profiling, race and racism remain salient features of our world. When faced with fervent anti-immigration... more...

  • Fueling the Gilded Ageby Andrew Arnold

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 79.00

    If the railroads won the Gilded Age, the coal industry lost it.  Railroads epitomized modern management, high technology, and vast economies of scale. By comparison, the coal industry was embarrassingly primitive. Miners and operators dug coal, bought it, and sold it in 1900 in the same ways that they had for generations. In the popular imagination,... more...

  • Prankstersby Kembrew McLeod

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 59.00

    From Benjamin Franklin's newspaper hoax that faked the death of his rival to Abbie Hoffman’s attempt to levitate the Pentagon, pranksters, hoaxers, and con artists have caused confusion, disorder, and laughter in Western society for centuries. Profiling the most notorious mischief makers from the 1600s to the present day,  Pranksters... more...

  • The Colorblind Screenby Sarah E. Turner; Sarah Nilsen

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    The election of President Barack Obama signaled for many the realization of a post-racial America, a nation in which racism was no longer a defining social, cultural, and political issue. While many Americans espouse a "colorblind" racial ideology and publicly endorse the broad goals of integration and equal treatment without regard to race,... more...

  • Renegade Revolutionaryby Phillip Papas

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 69.00

    In November 1774, a pamphlet to the "People of America" was published in Philadelphia and London. It forcefully articulated American rights and liberties and argued that the Americans needed to declare their independence from Britain. The author of this pamphlet was Charles Lee, a former British army officer turned revolutionary, who was... more...

  • Heart-Sickby Janet K. Shim

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    Heart disease, the leading cause of death in the United States, affects people from all walks of life, yet who lives and who dies from heart disease still depends on race, class, and gender. While scientists and clinicians understand and treat heart disease more effectively than ever before, and industrialized countries have made substantial investments... more...

  • Feeling Mediatedby Brenton Malin

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    New technologies, whether text message or telegraph, inevitably raise questions about emotion. New forms of communication bring with them both fear and hope, on one hand allowing us deeper emotional connections and the ability to forge global communities, while on the other prompting anxieties about isolation and over-stimulation.  Feeling Mediated... more...

  • Cable Guysby Amanda D. Lotz

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 89.00

    From the meth-dealing but devoted family man Walter White of AMC’s Breaking Bad, to the part-time basketball coach, part-time gigolo Ray Drecker of HBO’s Hung, depictions of male characters perplexed by societal expectations of men and anxious about changing American masculinity have become standard across the television landscape. Engaging... more...
