  • Clarity, Cut, and Cultureby Susan Falls

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 112.50

    Images of diamonds appear everywhere in American culture. And everyone who has a diamond has a story to tell about it. Our stories about diamonds not only reveal what we do with these tiny stones, but also suggest how we create value, meaning, and identity through our interactions with material culture in general. Things become meaningful through our... more...

  • The Delectable Negroby Vincent Woodard; Justin A. Joyce; Dwight McBride

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    Scholars of US and transatlantic slavery have largely ignored or dismissed accusations that Black Americans were cannibalized. Vincent Woodard takes the enslaved person’s claims of human consumption seriously, focusing on both the literal starvation of the slave and the tropes of cannibalism on the part of the slaveholder, and further draws attention... more...

  • That Pride of Race and Characterby Caroline E. Light

    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. "Their reasons are partly founded in religious necessity, and partly in that pride of race and character which has supported them through so many ages of trial and vicissitude." In That... more...

  • Caring Across Generationsby Grace J. Yoo; Barbara W. Kim

    More than 1.3 million Korean Americans live in the United States, the majority of them foreign-born immigrants and their children, the so-called 1.5 and second generations. While many sons and daughters of Korean immigrants outwardly conform to the stereotyped image of the upwardly mobile, highly educated super-achiever, the realities and challenges... more...

  • Women of the Nationby Dawn-Marie Gibson; Jamillah Karim

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    With vocal public figures such as Malcolm X, Elijah Muhammad, and Louis Farrakhan, the Nation of Islam often appears to be a male-centric religious movement, and over 60 years of scholarship have perpetuated that notion. Yet, women have been pivotal in the NOI's development, playing a major role in creating the public image that made it appealing... more...

  • After the Rebellionby Sekou M. Franklin

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    What happened to black youth in the post-civil rights generation? What kind of causes did they rally around and were they even rallying in the first place? After the Rebellion takes a close look at a variety of key civil rights groups across the country over the last 40 years to provide a broad view of black youth and social movement activism.Based... more...

  • Fat Gay Menby Jason Whitesel

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    To be fat in a thin-obsessed gay culture can be difficult. Despite affectionate in-group monikers for big gay men-chubs, bears, cubs-the anti-fat stigma that persists in American culture at large still haunts these individuals who often exist at the margins of gay communities. In Fat Gay Men , Jason Whitesel delves into the world of Girth & Mirth,... more...

  • Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures, and Other Latina Longingsby Juana María Rodríguez

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    Sexual Futures, Queer Gestures and Other Latina Longings proposes a theory of sexual politics that works in the interstices between radical queer desires and the urgency of transforming public policy, between utopian longings and everyday failures. Considering the ways in which bodily movement is assigned cultural meaning, Juana María Rodríguez... more...

  • The Traumatic Colonelby Michael J. Drexler; Ed White

    NYU Press 2014; US$ 118.50

    In American political fantasy, the Founding Fathers loom large, at once historical and mythical figures. In The Traumatic Colonel , Michael J. Drexler and Ed White examine the Founders as imaginative fictions, characters in the specifically literary sense, whose significance emerged from narrative elements clustered around them. From the revolutionary... more...
