RECONSTRUCTING AMERICA

The Retreats of Reconstruction
Race, Leisure, and the Politics of Segregation
at the New Jersey Shore, 1865-1920
DAVID E. GOLDBERG
“Breaking away from the usual debates concerning post-Civil War America, David E.
Goldberg explores race relations on the Jersey Shore in ways that should attract the at-
tention not only of scholars of segregation but also of consumerism, leisure, and African
American life in the North. There are good stories here ranging from the founding of
Asbury Park to the lives of African American waiters as well as challenging ideas that
stretch beyond the old narratives concerning the rise of Jim Crow in Northern states.”

When Ivory Towers Were Black
A Story about Race in America’s Cities and Universities
SHARON EGRETTA SUTTON
Foreword by James Stewart Polshek
When Ivory Towers Were Black tells the story of how an unparalleled cohort of
ethnic minority students earned degrees from a world-class university. It takes
place in New York City at Columbia University’s School of Architecture and spans
a decade of institutional evolution that mirrored the emergence and denouement
of the Black Power movement. Chronicling a surprisingly little-known era in U.S.
educational, architectural, and urban history, the book traces an evolutionary arc
that begins with an unsettling effort to end Columbia’s exercise of authoritarian
power on campus and in the community and ends with an equally unsettling
return to the status quo.

JOANNE WITTY AND HENRIK KROGIUS
“As a former parks commissioner, it is amazing to me that a spectacular new wa-

Bridge Park. This excellent book details how complicated and difficult it was to
conceive, design, finance, and build the park and chronicles the dedication and
ingenuity of the many who made it happen.”—Betsy Gotbaum, former commis-
sioner of the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation
“Only in Brooklyn! A tired waterfront becomes a great park and welcomes the
world to New York’s hippest borough. This fine book tells the inside story of how
it happened, of how government works in the real world, of how citizen-actors
and political pros produced an urban masterpiece.”—Marty Markowitz, former

Undocumented and in College
Students and Institutions in a Climate of National Hostility
Edited by Terry-Ann Jones and Laura Nichols
The current daily experiences of undocumented students as they navigate the processes
of entering and then thriving in Jesuit colleges are explored alongside an investigation of
the knowledge and attitudes among staff and faculty about undocumented students in
their midst, and the institutional response to their presence. Cutting across the fields of
U.S. immigration policy, theory and history, religion, law, and education, Undocumented
and in College delineates the historical and present-day contexts of immigration, includ-
ing the role of religious institutions.

Paul Hanly Furfey: Priest, Scientist, Social Reformer
NICHOLAS K. RADEMACHER
Nicholas Rademacher’s book is meticulously researched and clearly written, shedding new
light on Monsignor Paul Hanly Furfey’s life by drawing on Furfey’s copious published material
and substantial archival deposit. Paul Hanly Furfey (1896–1992) is one of U.S. Catholicism’s
greatest champions of peace and social justice. He and his colleagues at The Catholic University
of America offered a revolutionary view of the university as a center for social transformation,
not only in training students to be agents for social change but also in establishing structures
which would empower and transform the communities that surrounded the university.
Leaving behind an important legacy for Catholic sociology, Furfey demonstrated how
to balance liberal, radical, and revolutionary social thought and practice to elicit new
approaches to social reform.

another that few can claim expertise in both, and so we continue to focus narrowly on our own

The Limits of Fabrication: Materials Science, Materialist Poetics
NATHAN BROWN
“The Limits of Fabrication brings an essential argument to discussions concerning the end

expression by reducing it to linguistic transparency, Brown on the contrary demonstrates
that a poem is always a factory, where meaning is fashioned, even if invisibly, through the
crystals, quanta, or nanotubes of language. No metaphorical abstraction in this, but the
revelation of the elementary technology at work in words. A strikingly singular, beauti-
ful, and important book.”—Catherine Malabou, author of The New Wounded

Journey into Social Activism
Qualitative Approaches
JOSHUA D. ATKINSON
Academic study of social activism and social movements has become increas-
ingly prevalent over the years; this is due in large part to the fact that activists
have captured public imagination and gained substantial influence in political
discourse. For instance, Occupy Wall Street activists, Tea Party activists, and
activists affiliated with the Arab Spring have transformed political debates and
have become the focus of mainstream news media coverage about a variety of
different political topics.
Journey into Social Activism explicates the philosophical foundations of the study
of activism and illustrates four different research sites in which activism can be
observed and studied: organizations, networks, events, and alternative media.
