Crossing the Hudson: Historic Bridges and Tunnels of the River

Crossing the Hudson: Historic Bridges and Tunnels of the River by Donald Wolf Crossing the Hudson reveals the often multileveled stories of the river's bridges and tunnels, from timber arch and truss bridges on stone piers to long-span suspension and cantilevered bridges, railroad tunnels, and improvements in iron and steel technology, providing a history of where, why, when, and how these structures were built; the social, political, and commercial forces that influenced decisions to erect them; the personalities of the planners and builders; the unique connection between builder and bridge; and the design and construction techniques that turned mythical goals into structures...

Day of the Dead in the USA: The Migration and Transformation of a Cultural Phenomenon

Day of the Dead in the USA: The Migration and Transformation of a Cultural Phenomenon by Regina M. MarchiHonoring relatives by tending graves, building altars, and cooking festive meals has been an honored tradition among Latin Americans for centuries. The tribute, "el Dia de los Muertos," has enjoyed renewed popularity since the 1970s when Latino activists and artists in the United States began expanding "Day of the Dead" north of the border with celebrations of performance art, Aztec danza, art exhibits, and other public expressions.

Focusing on the power of ritual to serve as a communication medium, Regina M. Marchi combines a mix of ethnography, historical research, oral history, and critical...

Cosmopolitan Publics: Anglophone Print Culture in Semi-Colonial Shanghai

Cosmopolitan Publics: Anglophone Print Culture in Semi-Colonial Shanghai by Shuang ShenCosmopolitan Publics focuses on China's "cosmopolitans"-Western-educated intellectuals who returned to Shanghai in the late 1920s to publish in English and who, ultimately, became both cultural translators and citizens of the wider world. Shuang Shen highlights their work providing readers with a broader understanding of the role and function of cultural mixing, translation, and multilingualism in China's cultural modernity. Shen's encompassing study revisits and presents the experience of Chinese modernity as far more heterogeneous, emergent, and transnational than it has been characterized...

Custodians of Place: Governing the Growth and Development of Cities

Custodians of Place: Governing the Growth and Development of Cities by Paul G. Lewis & Max Neiman

Custodians of Place provides a new theoretical framework that accounts for how different types of cities arrive at decisions about residential growth and economic development. Lewis and Neiman surveyed officials in hundreds of California cities of all sizes and socioeconomic characteristics and discovered that city governments often can insulate themselves from short-term political pressures and craft policy that builds on past growth experiences and future vision.

What types of cities tend to aggressively pursue industrial or retail firms? What types of cities tend to favor housing over business...

Crimes of Power & States of Impunity: The U.S. Response to Terror

Crimes of Power & States of Impunity: The U.S. Response to Terror by Michael WelchSince 9/11, a new configuration of power situated at the core of the executive branch of the U.S. government has taken hold. In Crimes of Power & States of Impunity, Michael Welch takes a close look at the key historical, political, and economic forces shaping the country's response to terror.

Welch continues the work he began in Scapegoats of September 11th and argues that current U.S. policies, many enacted after the attacks, undermine basic human rights and violate domestic and international law. He recounts these offenses and analyzes the system that sanctions them, offering fresh insight...

Covenant Marriage: The Movement to Reclaim Tradition in America

Covenant Marriage: The Movement to Reclaim Tradition in America by Steven Nock & Laura Sanchez & James WrightRegardless how you interpret the statistics, the divorce rate in the United States is staggering. But, what if the government could change this? Would families be better off if new public policies made it more difficult for couples to separate?


This book explores a movement that emerged over the past fifteen years, which aims to do just that. Guided by certain politicians and religious leaders who herald marriage as a solution to a range of longstanding social problems, a handful of state governments enacted "covenant marriage" laws, which require couples to choose between a conventional and...

The Education Mayor: Improving America's Schools

The Education Mayor: Improving America's Schools by Kenneth K. Wong & Francis X. Shen & Dorothea Anagnostopoulos

In 2002 the No Child Left Behind Act rocked America's schools with new initiatives for results-based accountability. But years before NCLB was signed, a new movement was already under way by mayors to take control of city schools from school boards and integrate the management of public education with the overall governing of the city. The Education Mayor is a critical look at mayoral control of urban school districts, beginning with Boston's schools in 1992 and examining more than 100 school districts in 40 states.

The authors seek to answer four central questions: • What does school governance...

Decoding Gender: Law and Practice in Contemporary Mexico

Decoding Gender: Law and Practice in Contemporary Mexico by Helga BaitenmannGender discrimination pervades nearly all legal institutions and practices in Latin America. The deeper question is how this shapes broader relations of power. By examining the relationship between law and gender as it manifests itself in the Mexican legal system, the thirteen essays in this volume show how law is produced by, but also perpetuates, unequal power relations. At the same time, however, authors show how law is often malleable and can provide spaces for negotiation and redress. The contributors (including political scientists, sociologists, geographers, anthropologists, and economists)...

Yuki Grammar: With Sketches of Huchnom and Coast Yuki

Yuki Grammar: With Sketches of Huchnom and Coast Yuki by Uldis BalodisThe Yuki language, including Huchnom and Coast Yuki, was spoken in Mendocino County until relatively recently (the last speaker died in 1983). This grammar is based primarily on spoken narratives recorded by Alfred Kroeber between 1901-1911. While Yuki was extensively documented over the course of the twentieth century, there is relatively little in the way of actual published works on the language. Balodis discusses the language within the historical and cultural context of the people who spoke it.

The Preferential Option for the Poor beyond Theology

The Preferential Option for the Poor beyond Theology by Daniel G.

As the situation for many of the world's poor worsens, it becomes ever more important to ensure that the option for the poor remains not only a vibrant theological concept but also a practical framework for living out the gift and challenge of Christian faith. The Preferential Option for the Poor beyond Theology draws on...
