    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 48.95

    Mary Ruggie's controversial study of British and Swedish labor market, anti-discrimination, and child care programs argues that gender-based policy alone cannot substantially raise the economic status of women workers.

    ABC-CLIO 2011; US$ 35.00

    Led by a relatively penniless young farm worker named Cesar Chavez, the farm workers movement still inspires a sense of pride and purpose among Latinos fighting for personal rights, political power, and economic well-being. Many of the young volunteers in the farm workers movement continue to fight for progressive causes today. Just who was Chavez... more...

    Verso Books 2012; US$ 14.95

    Millions of young people?and increasingly some not-so-young people?now work as interns. They famously shuttle coffee in a thousand magazine offices, legislative backrooms, and Hollywood studios, but they also deliver aid in Afghanistan, map the human genome, and pick up garbage. Intern Nation is the first exposé of the exploitative world of internships.... more...

  • Playing the Whoreby Melissa Gira Grant

    Verso Books 2014; US$ 14.95

    Recent years have seen a panic over ?online red-light districts,? which supposedly seduce vulnerable young women into a life of degradation, and New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof?s live tweeting of a Cambodian brothel raid. But rarely do these fearful, salacious dispatches come from sex workers themselves, and rarely do they deviate from the... more...
