Invisible Men
Mass Incarceration and the Myth of Black Progress
BeCky PettIt
or African American men without a high school diploma, being in prison or jail is more common than being employed—a sobering reality that calls into question post–Civil Rights era social gains. Nearly 70 percent of young black men will be imprisoned at some point in their lives, and poor black men with low levels of education make up a disproportionate share of incarcerated Americans. In Invisible Men, sociologist Becky Pettit demonstrates another vexing fact of mass incarceration: most national surveys do not account for prison inmates, a fact that results in a misrepresentation of U.S. political, economic, and social conditions in general and black progress in particular. Invisible Men provides an eye-opening examination of how mass incarceration has concealed decades of racial inequality. Pettit marshals a wealth of evidence correlating the explosion in prison growth with the disappearance of millions of black men into the American penal system. She shows that, because prison inmates are not included in most survey data, statistics that seemed to indicate a narrowing black-white racial gap—on educational attainment, work force participation, and earnings—instead fail to capture persistent racial, economic, and social disadvantage among African Americans. Federal statistical agencies, including the U.S. Census Bureau, collect surprisingly little information about the incarcerated, and inmates are not included in household samples in national surveys. As a result, these men are invisible to most mainstream social institutions, lawmakers, and nearly all social science research that isn’t directly related to crime or criminal justice. Since merely being counted poses such a challenge, inmates’ lives—including their family background, the communities they come from, or what happens to them after incarceration—are even more rarely examined. And since correctional budgets provide primarily for housing and monitoring inmates, with little left over for job training or rehabilitation, a large population of young men are not only invisible to society while in prison but also ill-equipped to participate upon release. Invisible Men provides a vital reality check for social researchers, lawmakers, and anyone who cares about racial equality. The book shows that more than a half century after the first civil rights legislation, the dismal fact of mass incarceration inflicts widespread and enduring damage by undermining the fair allocation of public resources and political representation, by depriving the children of inmates of their parents’ economic and emotional participation, and, ultimately, by concealing African American disadvantage from public view.

tiny Publics
A theory of Group Action and Culture
GARy AlAn FIne
f all politics is local, then so is almost everything else, argues sociologist Gary Alan Fine. We organize our lives by relying on those closest to us—family members, friends, work colleagues, team mates, and other intimates—to create meaning and order. In this thoughtful and wide-ranging new book, Fine argues that the basic building blocks of society itself are forged within the boundaries of such small groups, the “tiny publics” necessary for a robust, functioning social order at all levels. Action, meaning, authority, inequality, organization, and institutions all have their roots in small groups. Yet for the past twenty-five years social scientists have tended to ignore the power of groups in favor of an emphasis on organizations, societies, or individuals. Based on over thirty-five years of Fine’s own ethnographic research across an array of small groups, Tiny Publics presents a compelling new theory of the pivotal role of small groups in organizing social life. No social system can thrive without flourishing small groups. They provide havens in an impersonal world, where faceless organizations become humanized. Taking examples from such diverse worlds as Little League baseball teams, restaurant workers, high school debate teams, weather forecasters, and political volunteers, Fine demonstrates how each group has its own unique culture, or idioculture—the system of knowledge, beliefs, behavior, and customs that define and hold a group together. With their dense network of relationships, groups serve as important sources of social and cultural capital for their members. The apparently innocuous jokes, rituals, and nicknames prevalent within Little League baseball teams help establish how teams function internally and how they compete with other teams. Small groups also provide a platform for their members to engage in broader social discourse and a supportive environment to begin effecting change in larger institutions. In his studies of mushroom collectors and high school debate teams, Fine demonstrates the importance of stories that group members tell each other about their successes and frustrations in fostering a strong sense of social cohesion. And Fine shows how the personal commitment political volunteers bring to their efforts is reinforced by the close-knit nature of their work, which in turn has the power to change larger groups and institutions. In this way, the actions and debates begun in small groups can eventually radiate outward to affect every level of society. Fine convincingly demonstrates how small groups provide fertile ground for the seeds of civic engagement. Outcomes often attributed to large-scale social forces originate within such small-scale domains. Employing rich insights from both sociology and social psychology, as well as vivid examples from a revealing array of real-world groups, Tiny Publics provides a compelling examination of the importance of small groups and of the rich vitality they bring to social life.

Facing social Class
How societal Rank Influences Interaction
susAn t. FIske and HAzel Rose MARkus, editors


any Americans, holding fast to the American Dream and the promise of equal opportunity, claim that social class doesn’t matter. Yet the ways we talk and dress, our interactions with authority figures, the degree of trust we place in strangers, our religious beliefs, our achievements, our senses of morality and of ourselves—all are marked by social class, a powerful factor affecting every domain of life. In Facing Social Class, social psychologists Susan Fiske and Hazel Rose Markus, and a team of sociologists, anthropologists, linguists, and legal scholars, examine the many ways we communicate our class position to others and how social class shapes our daily, face-to-face interactions—from casual exchanges to interactions at school, work, and home. Facing Social Class exposes the contradiction between the American ideal of equal opportunity and the harsh reality of growing inequality, and it shows how this tension is reflected in cultural ideas and values, institutional practices, everyday social interactions, and psychological tendencies. Contributor Joan Williams examines cultural differences between middle- and working-class people and shows how the cultural gap between social class groups can influence everything from voting practices and political beliefs to work habits, home life, and social behaviors. In a similar vein, Annette Lareau and Jessica McCrory Calarco analyze the cultural advantages or disadvantages exhibited by different classes in institutional settings, such as those between parents and teachers. They find that middle-class parents are better able to advocate effectively for their children in school than are working-class parents, who are less likely to challenge a teacher’s authority. Michael Kraus, Michelle Rheinschmidt, and Paul Piff explore the subtle ways we signal class status in social situations. Conversational style and how close one person stands to another, for example, can influence the balance of power in a business interaction. Diana Sanchez and Julie Garcia even demonstrate that markers of low socioeconomic status such as incarceration or unemployment can influence whether individuals are categorized as white or black—a finding that underscores how race and class may work in tandem to shape advantage or disadvantage in social interactions. The United States has one of the highest levels of income inequality and one of the lowest levels of social mobility among industrialized nations, yet many Americans continue to buy into the myth that theirs is a classless society. Facing Social Class faces the reality of how social class operates in our daily lives, why it is so pervasive, and what can be done to alleviate its effects.

From Parents to Children
the Intergenerational transmission of Advantage
JoHn eRMIsCH, MARkus JänttI, and tIMotHy M. sMeeDInG, editors
oes economic inequality in one generation lead to inequality of opportunity in the next? In From Parents to Children, an esteemed international group of scholars investigates this question using data from ten countries with differing levels of inequality. The book compares whether and how parents’ resources transmit advantage to their children at different stages of development and sheds light on the structural differences among countries that may influence intergenerational mobility. How and why is economic mobility higher in some countries than in others? The contributors find that inequality in mobility-relevant skills emerges early in childhood in all of the countries studied. Bruce Bradbury and his Arnaud lefranc coauthors focus on learning readiness among young children and show that Henning lohmann as early as age five, large disparities in cognitive and other mobility-relevant Anna-liisa lyyra katherine Magnuson skills develop between low- and high-income kids, particularly in the United Molly Metzger States and the United Kingdom. Such disparities may be mitigated by investJohn Micklewright ments in early childhood education, as Christelle Dumas and Arnaud Lefranc Carina Mood demonstrate. They find that universal pre-school education in France lessens Martin nybom i the negative effect of low parental SES and gives low-income children a greater Frauke H. Peter shot at social mobility. Katherine Magnuson, Jane Waldfogel, and Elizabeth Patrizio Piraino lea Pulkkinen Washbrook find that income-based gaps in cognitive achievement in the Gerry Redmond United States and the United Kingdom widen as children reach adolescence. John Roemer Robert Haveman and his co-authors show that the effect of parental income sharon simonton on test scores increases as children age; and in both the United States and timothy M. smeeding Canada, having parents with a higher income betters the chances that a child C. katharina spiess will enroll in college. Jane Waldfogel elizabeth Washbrook As economic inequality in the United States continues to rise, the national niels Westergaardpolicy conversation will not only need to address the devastating effects of rising nielsen inequality in this generation but also the potential consequences of the decline James A.

nurturing Dads
social Initiatives for Contemporary Fatherhood
WIllIAM MARsIGlIo and kevIn Roy


merican fathers are a highly diverse group, but the breadwinning, live-in, biological dad prevails as the fatherhood ideal. Consequently, policymakers continue to emphasize marriage and residency over initiatives that might help foster healthy father-child relationships and creative co-parenting regardless of marital or residential status. In Nurturing Dads, William Marsiglio and Kevin Roy explore the ways new initiatives can address the social, cultural, and economic challenges men face in contemporary families and foster more meaningful engagement between many different kinds of fathers and their children. What makes a good father? The firsthand accounts in Nurturing Dads show that the answer to this question varies widely and in ways that counter the mainstream “provide and reside” model of fatherhood. Marsiglio and Roy document the personal experiences of more than 300 men from a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds and diverse settings, including fathers-to-be, young adult fathers, middleclass dads, stepfathers, men with multiple children in separate families, and fathers in correctional facilities. They find that most dads express the desire to have strong, close relationships with their children and to develop the nurturing skills to maintain these bonds. But they also find that disadvantaged fathers, including young dads and those in constrained financial and personal circumstances, confront myriad structural obstacles, such as poverty, inadequate education, and poor job opportunities. Nurturing Dads asserts that society should help fathers become more committed and attentive caregivers and that federal and state agencies, work sites, grassroots advocacy groups, and the media all have roles to play. Recent efforts to introduce state-initiated paternity leave should be coupled with social programs that encourage fathers to develop unconditional commitments to children, to co-parent with mothers, to establish partnerships with their children’s other caregivers, and to develop parenting skills and resources before becoming fathers via activities like volunteering and mentoring kids. Ultimately, Marsiglio and Roy argue, such combined strategies would not only change the policy landscape to promote engaged fathering but also change the cultural landscape to view nurturance as a fundamental aspect of good fathering. Care is a human experience—not just a woman’s responsibility—and this core idea behind Nurturing Dads holds important implications for how society supports its families and defines manhood. The book promotes the progressive notion that fathers should provide more than financial support and, in the process, bring about a better start in life for their children.

Family Consequences of Children’s Disabilities
DennIs P. HoGAn
he Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other national policies are designed to ensure the greatest possible inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of American life. But as a matter of national policy we still place the lion’s share of responsibility for raising children with disabilities on their families. While this strategy largely works, sociologist Dennis Hogan maintains, the reality is that family financial security, the parents’ relationship, and the needs of other children in the home all can be stretched to the limit. In Family Consequences of Children’s Disabilities Hogan delves inside the experiences of these families and examines the financial and emotional costs of raising a child with a disability. The book examines the challenges families of children with disabilities encounter and how these challenges impact family life. The first comprehensive account of the families of children with disabilities, Family Consequences of Children’s Disabilities employs data culled from seven national surveys and interviews with twenty-four mothers of children with disabilities, asking them questions about their family life, social supports, and how other children in the home were faring. Not surprisingly, Hogan finds that couples who are together when their child is born have a higher likelihood of divorcing than other parents do. The potential for financial insecurity contributes to this anxiety, especially as many parents must strike a careful balance between employment and caregiving. Mothers are less likely to have paid employment, and the financial burden on single parents can be devastating. One-third of children with disabilities live in single-parent households, and nearly 30 percent of families raising a child with a disability live in poverty. Because of the high levels of stress these families incur, support networks are crucial. Grandparents are often a source of support. Siblings can also assist with personal care and, consequently, tend to develop more helpful attitudes, be more inclusive of others, and be more tolerant. But these siblings are at risk for their own health problems: they are three times more likely to experience poor health than children in homes where there is no child with a disability. Yet this book also shows that raising a child with a disability includes unexpected rewards—the families tend to be closer, and they engage in more shared activities such as games, television, and meals. Family Consequences of Children’s Disabilities offers access to a world many never see or prefer to ignore. The book provides vital information on effective treatment, rehabilitation, and enablement to medical professionals, educators, social workers, and lawmakers. This compelling book demonstrates that every mirror has two faces: raising a child with a disability can be difficult, but it can also offer expanded understanding.

keeping the Immigrant Bargain
the Costs and Rewards of success in America
vIvIAn louIe
ost nineteenth and early-twentieth-century European immigrants arrived in the United States with barely more than the clothes on their backs. They performed menial jobs, spoke little English, and often faced a hostile reception. But two or more generations later, the overwhelming majority of their descendants had successfully integrated into American society. Today’s immigrants face many of the same challenges, but some experts worry that their integration, especially among Latinos, will not be as successful as their European counterparts. Keeping the Immigrant Bargain examines the journey of Dominican and Colombian newcomers whose children have achieved academic success one generation after the arrival of their parents. Sociologist Vivian Louie provides a much-needed comparison of how both parents and children understand the immigrant journey toward education, mobility, and assimilation. Based on Louie’s own survey and interview study, Keeping the Immigrant Bargain examines the lives of thirtyseven foreign-born Dominican and Colombian parents and their seventy-six young adult offspring—the majority of whom were enrolled in or had graduated from college. The book shows how they are adapting to American schools, jobs, neighborhoods, and culture. Louie discovers that before coming to the United States, some of these parents had already achieved higher levels of education than the average foreign-born Dominican or Colombian, and after arrival many owned their own homes. Significantly, most parents in each group expressed optimism about their potential to succeed in the United States, while also expressing pessimism about whether they would ever be accepted as Americans. In contrast to the social exclusion experienced by their parents, most of the young adults had assimilated linguistically and believed themselves to be full participants in American society. Keeping the Immigrant Bargain shows that the offspring of these largely working-class immigrants had several factors in common that aided their mobility. Their parents were highly engaged in their lives and educational progress, although not always in ways expected by schools or their children, and the children possessed a strong degree of self-motivation. Equally important was the availability of key institutional networks of support, including teachers, peers, afterschool and other enrichment programs, and informal mentors outside of the classroom. These institutional networks gave the children the guidance they needed to succeed in school, offering information the parents often did not know themselves. While not all immigrants achieve such rapid success, this engrossing study shows how powerful the combination of self-motivation, engaged families, and strong institutional support can be. Keeping the Immigrant Bargain makes the case that institutional relationships—such as teachers and principals who are trained to accommodate cultural difference and community organizations that help parents and children learn how to navigate the system— can bear significantly on immigrant educational success.

the Broken table
the Detroit newspaper strike and the state of American labor
hen the Detroit newspaper strike was settled in December 2000, it marked the end of five years of bitter and violent dispute. No fewer than six local unions, representing 2,500 employees, struck against the Detroit News, the Detroit Free Press, and their corporate owners, charging unfair labor practices. The newspapers hired permanent replacement workers and paid millions of dollars for private security and police enforcement; the unions and their supporters took their struggle to the streets by organizing a widespread circulation and advertising boycott, conducting civil disobedience, and publishing a weekly strike newspaper. In the end, unions were forced to settle contracts on management’s terms, and fired strikers received no amnesty. In The Broken Table, Chris Rhomberg sees the Detroit strike as a historic collision of two opposing forces: a system in place since the New Deal governing disputes between labor and management, and decades of increasingly aggressive corporate efforts to eliminate unions. As a consequence, one of the fundamental institutions of American labor relations—the negotiation table—has been broken, Rhomberg argues, leaving the future of the collective bargaining relationship and democratic workplace governance in question. The Broken Table uses interview and archival research to explore the historical trajectory of this breakdown, its effect on workers’ economic outlook, and the possibility of restoring democratic governance to the business-labor relationship. Emerging from the New Deal, the 1935 National Labor Relations Act protected the practice of collective bargaining and workers’ rights to negotiate the terms and conditions of their employment by legally recognizing union representation. This system became central to the democratic workplace, where workers and management were collective stakeholders. But efforts to erode the legal protections of the NLRA began immediately, leading to a parallel track of anti-unionism that began to gain ascendancy in the 1980s. The Broken Table shows how the tension created by these two opposing forces came to a head after a series of key labor disputes over the preceding decades culminated in the Detroit newspaper strike. Detroit union leadership charged management with unfair labor practices after employers had unilaterally limited the unions’ ability to bargain over compensation and work conditions. Rhomberg argues that, in the face of management claims of absolute authority, the strike was an attempt by unions to defend workers’ rights and the institution of collective bargaining, and to stem the rising tide of post-1980s anti-unionism. In an era when the incidence of strikes in the United States has been drastically reduced, the 1995 Detroit newspaper strike stands out as one of the largest and longest work stoppages in the past two decades. A riveting read full of sharp analysis, The Broken Table revisits the Detroit case in order to show the ways this strike signaled the new terrain in labor-management conflict. The book raises broader questions of workplace governance and accountability that affect us all.

social Movements in the World-system
the Politics of Crisis and transformation
JACkIe sMItH and DAWn WIest


lobal crises such as rising economic inequality, volatile financial markets, and devastating climate change illustrate the defects of a global economic order controlled largely by transnational corporations, wealthy states, and other elites. As the impacts of such crises have intensified, they have generated a new wave of protests extending from the countries of the Middle East and North Africa throughout Europe, North America, and elsewhere. This new surge of resistance builds upon a long history of transnational activism as it extends and develops new tactics for pro-democracy movements acting simultaneously around the world. In Social Movements in the World-System, Jackie Smith and Dawn Wiest build upon theories of social movements, global institutions, and the political economy of the world-system to uncover how institutions define the opportunities and constraints on social movements, which in turn introduce ideas and models of action that help transform social activism as well as the system itself. Smith and Wiest trace modern social movements to the founding of the United Nations, as well as struggles for decolonization and the rise of national independence movements, showing how these movements have shifted the context in which states and other global actors compete and interact. The book shows how transnational activism since the end of the Cold War, including United Nations global conferences and more recently at World Trade Organization meetings, has shaped the ways groups organize. Global summits and UN conferences have traditionally provided focal points for activists working across borders on a diverse array of issues. By engaging in these international arenas, movements have altered discourses to emphasize norms of human rights and ecological sustainability over territorial sovereignty. Over time, however, activists have developed deeper and more expansive networks and new spaces for activism. This growing pool of transnational activists and organizations democratizes the process of organizing, enables activists to build on previous experiences and share knowledge, and facilitates local actions in support of global change agendas. As the world faces profound financial and ecological crises, and as the United States’ dominance in the world political economy is increasingly challenged, it is especially urgent that scholars, policy analysts, and citizens understand how institutions shape social behavior and the distribution of power. Social Movements in the World-System helps illuminate the contentious and complex interactions between social movements and global institutions and contributes to the search for paths towards a more equitable, sustainable, and democratic world.

Immigrants Raising Citizens
undocumented Parents and their young Children
HIRokAzu yosHIkAWA
“In all the debates about immigration in the United States, very little attention has been paid to how tomorrow’s citizens—the children of today’s immigrants—are affected by their parents’ undocumented status. Immigrants Raising Citizens provides a compelling story about the scarring effects of the lack of access to good jobs and social services among undocumented parents on their citizen children. The failure to provide such parents with the same opportunities available to other adults, whether in the job market or in the community, doesn’t just affect them; it also affects their children and the future productivity of the nation.”—Isabel V. Sawhill, The Brookings Institution “Dr. Yoshikawa’s book provides a fresh look at the challenges confronting immigrant families with young children in the nation’s largest city. It combines theory and evidence from the fields of demography, sociology, and child development. Above all, it puts a human face on immigrant parents and children by following the lives of several families in detail instead of relying solely on cold analysis of hard data, as is too often the case with the academic literature on this important subject.”—Randy Capps, Migration Policy Institute

Brokered Boundaries
Creating Immigrant Identity in Anti-Immigrant times
DouGlAs s. MAssey and MAGAly sánCHez R.
“A compelling and sobering account of the lives of immigrants in a time of economic downturn and harsh anti-immigrant policies. Based on interviews with first- and second-generation, mostly undocumented, Latinos in the urban northeast, Brokered Boundaries shows how they develop a new sense of themselves and American society in the face of exclusionary barriers. Anyone wanting to understand how immigrants are navigating life in the United States today should read this important, well-written, and thought-provoking book.”—Nancy Foner, City University of New York “Based on statistical and ethnographic accounts, Douglas Massey and Magaly Sánchez have written a book that offers an insightful portrait of new Latin American immigrants and also challenges the prevailing anti-immigrant hysteria. The overwhelming evidence shows that almost all new immigrants are hopeful, law abiding, family and community orientated, and working hard to secure a better life for themselves and their children. The harshness of American policies has not reduced immigration, but has legitimized discrimination that has marginalized immigrants and weakened the fabric of American society.”—Charles Hirschman, University of Washington

the Diversity Paradox
Immigration and the Color line in twenty-First Century America
JennIFeR lee and FRAnk D. BeAn
Winner of the 2011 Otis Dudley Duncan Award “Using an impressive arsenal of quantitative and qualitative data, Jennifer Lee and Frank Bean offer an authoritative analysis of the color line in American society, revealing a remarkable paradox at the heart of contemporary intergroup relations. Although immigration has dramatically increased the share of Asians and Latinos and patterns of intermarriage and self-identification reveal greater racial and ethnic mixing than ever before, one divide continues to stand out: that between African Americans and everyone else. Their careful analysis challenges both glib assertions of a post-racial order as well as pronouncements about the immutability of America’s racial categories. Racial meanings are clearly changing, but whether they will change enough to overcome the age-old ‘American Dilemma’ remains to be seen.”—Douglas S. Massey, The Woodrow Wilson School

Winner of the 2011 William J. Goode Award from the ASA’s Section on Family “Counted Out makes clear why ‘family values’ has been such a hotly debated political issue in the United States. It shows the ambivalence Americans have about including ‘as family’ those arrangements that are not based on marriage—heterosexual cohabitation and same-sex parenting and partnering. Using rich and unique data, Counted Out also illuminates the limits of the ‘gender revolution.’ Strong gender biases continue to influence who Americans think should have custody of children following divorce. Americans also continue to overwhelmingly endorse the practice of women taking their husband’s name at marriage. Anyone interested in family change or change in gender norms will find much food for thought in this exceptionally wellargued and insightful volume.”—Suzanne Bianchi, University of California, Los Angeles

Gendered tradeoffs
Family, social Policy, and economic Inequality in twenty-one Countries
BeCky PettIt and JennIFeR l. Hook
“Becky Pettit and Jennifer L. Hook have asked exactly the right questions, placing this book on the frontier of comparative research on women, work, and social policy. After a generation of researchers assessed the advantageous effects of work-family policies, comparative scholars are now focused on understanding and untangling the possibility of unintended consequences—especially those that might worsen aspects of gender inequality in the labor market.

Where Are All the Good Jobs Going?
What national and local Job Quality and Dynamics Mean for u.s. Workers
HARRy J. HolzeR, JulIA I. lAne, DAvID B. RosenBluM, and FReDRIk AnDeRsson
“Reversing the rise in income inequality and the increasing polarization of the labor market will take a concerted focus on both the quality of jobs employers create and the education and skills of the workforce. Using a unique matched data set of employers and employees, Where Are All the Good Jobs Going? provides a new take on some old issues, importantly on the relationship between job quality and job displacement and on strategies metropolitan areas can use to support new businesses that create good jobs.” —Eileen Appelbaum, senior economist, Center for Economic and Policy Research

Good Jobs America
Making Work Better for everyone
PAul osteRMAn and BetH sHulMAn
“At a time of fierce debate over America’s economic future, this fresh and deeply researched book provides a welcome antidote to the complacent conventional wisdom that good jobs are gone for good. [The authors] produce a powerful, informed case for making ‘bad’ jobs better. What Osterman and Shulman show is that doing so would benefit not just low-wage workers. It would also benefit our society and our economy more broadly.”—Jacob S. Hacker, Yale University “There is no more pressing question than how we insure that American workers are able to lay claim to jobs that pay well and hold the promise of economic security. Paul Osterman and his late coauthor, Beth Shulman . . . call for serious union reform, the mobilization of public opinion to pressure firms to do better, and insisting that citizens return the question of good jobs to the campaign trail. There are no easy solutions, but at last we have a book that puts the options on the table. We will be debating its conclusions for a long time to come.”—Katherine Newman, Johns Hopkins University

Good Jobs, Bad Jobs
the Rise of Polarized and Precarious employment systems in the united states, 1970s to 2000s
ARne l. kAlleBeRG
“Arne Kalleberg has written the definitive volume on our precarious, polarized U.S. labor market. This engagingly written tour of the American workplace illuminates its subject matter beautifully.” —Chris Tilly, University of California, Los Angeles “Good Jobs, Bad Jobs powerfully documents the profound transformation that the U.S. labor market has undergone since the mid-1970s. In a lucid and compelling analysis, Arne L. Kalleberg exposes the complex dynamics driving the sharp polarization between ‘good jobs’ and ‘bad jobs’ as well as the accompanying decline in employment security that has affected workers at all levels. This is a thoughtful book that is essential reading for anyone interested in understanding the situation of workers in twenty-first-century America.”—Ruth Milkman, CUNY Graduate Center

the Great Recession
DAvID B. GRusky, BRuCe WesteRn, and CHRIstoPHeR WIMeR, editors
“This is the first systematic, scholarly analysis of the initial effects of the Great Recession on the well-being of American workers and families. The authors analyze historical and recent data and document who lost their jobs, their homes, their financial assets; how the Federal stimulus bill enhanced the safety net for the poor and unemployed; and how individuals, families, and institutions responded to the economic shocks. Taken together, the chapters present a gloomy forecast. Job losses have been greater and the recovery slower than in other recessions, and the ‘deficit mania’ that prevents new Federal stimulus and encourages state and local government layoffs mean that unemployment and poverty will remain high for at least the next five years.”—Sheldon H. Danziger, University of Michigan “A first-rate team of social scientists contributes an impressively thorough set of analyses that go well beyond journalistic accounts, which tend to overemphasize the dramatic, the short-term, and the anecdotal. Yet The Great Recession is timely, important, and novel—essential reading about the broad implications of the great economic crisis of our time.”—Robert D. Mare, University of California, Los Angeles

Whither opportunity?
Rising Inequality, schools, and Children’s life Chances
GReG J. DunCAn and RICHARD J. MuRnAne, editors
“Whither Opportunity? examines in detail and from all conceivable angles the power of class to determine the developmental fate of America’s children. From this volume, we learn that children in communities experiencing unemployment do worse in school even if their own families are safe from its reach; that test score gaps by income are larger and growing faster than the gaps between black and white; that expenditures by high-income families on enrichment of all kinds is vastly larger than what low-income families can afford. All of this adds up to a new and troubling examination of the ways in which income inequality is pressing the nation’s children, youth, neighborhoods, schools, and families. I don’t often use the overworked phrase, ‘must read,’ but it most definitely applies to this book.”—Katherine S. Newman, Johns Hopkins University

“Shattering Culture . . . carefully examines the mantra of ‘cultural competence.’ While valuing different cultural frameworks and emphasizing the need to understand patients from their own perspectives, the authors show how some elements of respect for diversity must be rethought in the face of hard realities of running a health care system. The message is sensitive, sensible, and energizingly bold.” —Jennifer L. Hochschild, Harvard University “Shattering Culture humanizes the struggle to provide culturally grounded health care to a patient population that refuses to fit neatly into our tidy conceptual boxes.

Just neighbors?
Research on African American and latino Relations in the united states
eDWARD telles, MARk Q. sAWyeR, and GAsPAR RIveRA-sAlGADo, editors
“Just Neighbors? is a needed and welcome assessment of African American and Latino relations. As more of the nation’s major cities become majority minority a key question becomes how people and communities of color interact with, understand, and affect one another. Edward Telles and colleagues have pulled together an excellent set of articles that in a rich and mutually informing manner span the fields of anthropology, political science, and sociology. The work highlights the dynamics of group identity and stereotyping processes, of local context and characteristics particularly within the labor market, and especially of community leadership in molding the tenor of group relations. Just Neighbors? provides an important and broad-gauge baseline for serious scholarship on black-Latino relations.” —Lawrence D. Bobo, Harvard University

they say Cut Back, We say Fight Back!
Welfare Activism in an era of Retrenchment
ellen Reese
“With this beautifully conceived and passionate study of grassroots mobilization after ‘the end of welfare as we know it,’ Ellen Reese reminds us that elites may make policy, but they do not do so alone, but rather in the face of struggle and protest by those who refuse to have their dignity, rights, and livelihood curtailed in the name of neoliberalism.”—Eileen Boris, University of California, Santa Barbara “In this meticulously researched book, Ellen Reese looks not at why welfare reform was passed, but how it was implemented, arguing that implementation became an opportunity for policymaking. She brilliantly examines how citizens mobilized in welfare rights campaigns to replace public assistance for legal immigrants, to respond to the privatization of welfare services, to organize welfare recipients as workers, and to expand and improve subsidized childcare.”—Joya Misra, University of Massachusetts, Amherst

“Through close case study analysis Joachim Savelsberg and Ryan King provide the most insightful account to date of the relationships between collective memory and law, atrocity and institutional response. Situated at the intersection of comparative, cultural, and socio-legal scholarship, the book will be influential in each of these. American Memories breaks new ground in thinking through how society thinks about the unthinkable.”—Philip Smith, Yale University “What is the role of law in shaping collective memory, and what is the role of collective memory in shaping law? Can, how, and does law work through collective memory to help us prevent or avoid future atrocities? By empirically testing hypotheses about the connections between law and memory, by specifying the mechanisms of these connections, and by illustrating complex and interesting cases, American Memories makes an invaluable contribution to the discourse and will be an enduring resource for students and scholars alike.”—Jeffrey Olick, University of Virginia

Winner of the Distinguished Contribution to Scholarship and Research Award for a Book from the Latino/a Section of the ASA. “In today’s urban America, racial and ethnic identity is a moving target. In this study of the Dominican community of Providence, Rhode Island, José Itzigsohn describes how living life on the ‘faultlines’—between blacks, whites, and Latinos, between immigrants and natives—shapes the ways in which newcomers and their children are creating a new place for themselves in an old industrial city. The result is a rich and fascinating account of how the concept of ‘race’ is being transformed before our eyes.”—Philip Kasinitz, City University of New York “Closely tracking the incorporation trajectories of the Dominican first- and second-generations, Encountering American Faultlines shows how class and race intersect to shape their life opportunities, outlooks, and identities in pervasively racialized and transnationalized social contexts.”—Rubén G.

Immigrants and Welfare
the Impact of Welfare Reform on America’s newcomers
MICHAel FIx, editor
“In the mid-1990s, the U.S. government not only ‘ended welfare as we know it,’ but it also fundamentally altered its relationships with immigrants and their progeny through changes in welfare and immigration law that have been much less well-regarded in policy and research circles. The legislative changes created new distinctions in the definition of what it meant to be a member of U.S. society and to be eligible for needed assistance. In this incisive volume, Michael Fix and his colleagues give us the most comprehensive compilation of the evidence on immigrants’ use of public benefits before and after welfare reform. It both challenges some of the popular misconceptions about immigrants’ costs to the polity that fueled a backlash against newcomers to the country in the welfare and immigration law changes of the 1990s, and vigorously informs us about the impacts of those changes for immigrants and their children. Immigrants and Welfare is timely and much-needed.”—Ajay Chaudry, director, Center on Labor, Human Services, and Population, The Urban Institute

Noll, University of Notre Dame “From the first wave of the Moral Majority to the shifting tide of values voters, a generation of Evangelical engagement in American public life is now ready for reassessment. Cogent and careful, the critical conversation of these two volumes cuts through the trumpet calls and tinny clichés of culture wars with an orchestral account of manifold ideals and institutions in counterpoint. It lifts up underlying changes that run deep in the American grain of revival and reform, moral protest and populist politics, social mobility, and cultural assimilation into an ongoing argument over the public good.

envy up, scorn Down
How status Divides us
susAn t. FIske
“An accomplished social scientist and leader in the field of social psychology, Fiske writes in her thoughtful, data-driven book Envy Up, Scorn Down that . . . certain social groups are perceived by human brains as, quite simply, ‘less typically human.’ This fascinating data point is one of many Fiske corrals to support her central argument, that we humans constantly compare ourselves to one another and our groups to other groups. The two emotions that result from all these comparisons—envy and scorn—lie at the heart of a vast number of interpersonal, societal, and international problems. . . . Overall, Fiske makes a strong argument for the cognitive and emotional processes that underlie everyday inequalities and their social consequences. . . . I would recommend Envy Up, Scorn Down to any social worker, policy-maker, or politician attempting to understand the persistent struggle between people, groups, or nations that, in one way or another, are not equal.”—Science “Of all the seven deadly sins, envy is the one that nobody ever boasts about. In this fascinating and important book, Susan Fiske explores this taboo topic, explaining the universal human obsession with status. She shows how our complex feelings towards those above us and below us can be adaptive and beneficial; they can motivate us as individuals and bind us together as groups. Or they can make us miserable, tearing apart families and communities, and fueling hatred and war. This is an engaging book by a great scientist and a deep thinker.”—Paul Bloom, Yale University

“Public health done right saves many more lives than medical care, and New York City’s health department has long been recognized as a leader in protecting and promoting the health of its citizens. Epidemic City shows with great insight how the agency succeeds—or not—to the extent that it successfully navigates the rough political seas of each era.”—Thomas Farley, New York City Commissioner of Health “James Colgrove makes a singular contribution to our understanding of the role of the ‘public’ in public health practice. It is an uproarious story of larger than life personalities and even bigger public arguments that remind us continually of the crucial role of health politics in our democracy, and the tensions between cautious science and public fear. Marshaling vast amounts of information into a compelling and tell-able tale, Colgrove has written the definitive history of what has been possible, and not, in public health in the last fifty years.”—Susan M. Reverby, Wellesley College

Choosing ethnicity, negotiating Race
korean Adoptees in America
MIA tuAn and JIAnnBIn lee sHIAo
“Choosing Ethnicity, Negotiating Race . . . gives critical insights into the unique experience of Korean adoptees. This book provides depth of detail and background, making it one of the most complete resources available on this subject. As a first-generation Korean adoptee, much of what is described by adoptees in this book resonates with me. Tuan and Shiao have done an excellent job of providing supporting information and research, but let the voices of the adoptees tell their own stories of navigating the nuances of being a Korean American adoptee. The result is a profoundly good read.” —Susan Soon-Keum Cox, Holt International “Using in-depth interviews, Tuan and Shiao reveal the ways in which ethnicity, race, and culture overlap, intersect, and remain distinct in the everyday lives of adopted Korean Americans. Equally, if not more, important, Tuan and Shiao make public the personal voices and narratives of adopted Korean American adults whose stories have long been appropriated by adoptive parents and adoption agencies.”—Richard M. Lee, University of Minnesota

Reaching for a new Deal
Ambitious Governance, economic Meltdown, and Polarized Politics in obama’s First two years
tHeDA skoCPol and lAWRenCe R. JACoBs, editors
“This is social science at its best, using the insights of the academy to help shed light on contemporary politics. In this collection, some of the nation’s best political scientists offer a powerful look at the first years of the Obama presidency. This balanced and thoughtful book provides a wonderful analysis of the institutional and organizational contexts within which this administration has operated, as well as the strategic choices that enabled Obama to build a sizable legislative record. Reaching for a New Deal helps us understand how the president was able to craft so much ambitious legislation even as the political atmosphere became more polarized with each passing day. Through Obama, we learn more about why parties can make progress in some areas of policy despite institutional obstacles but not others. A must read for anyone interested in a serious look at contemporary politics.”—Julian E. Zelizer, professor of history and public affairs, Princeton University

Who Gets Represented?
PeteR k. enns and CHRIstoPHeR WlezIen, editors
“The impressive array of social scientific studies in Who Gets Represented? should set the agenda for the next generation of research on public opinion policy and political inequality in the United States. This research ought to further untangle the mechanisms by which the rich and other identifiable constituencies have persistently benefitted more than others from government policies—even as these policies have been responsive over time to the American public writ large.”—Robert Y. Shapiro, Columbia University

“High rates of poverty were the shame of American capitalism even before the great recession of the late 2000s. The recession will raise poverty to levels not seen since the early 1960s. What can we do? Changing Poverty, Changing Policies documents the factors and decisions that have kept poverty rates high even in good times and then considers evidence-based policies that could help turn the tide in the war on poverty—at least when the recovery comes. Whether you regard the policies as too modest or too far-reaching, the book is invaluable to understanding past failures to reduce poverty and in devising ways to improve on our abysmal record.”—Richard B.

“A valuable contribution to a growing body of social science and policy literature concerned with the challenges facing low-income working families and with the government responses to their plight. Through vivid description and cogent analysis of the everyday experiences of low-income working families, [Making It Work] effectively communicates what it means for families to survive at the economic margin. It extends understanding of the low-wage labor market, the work-family challenges that low-level jobs present, and the strengths as well as the limitations of a support-based employment model for ameliorating the socioeconomic standing of low-income parents and the well-being of their children.”—Social Service Review

Every serious student of public finance will want to read this book, to master its findings, and to take up the editors’ invitation to help re-evaluate some of the foundations of our field.”—James Poterba, Massachusetts Institute of Technology “An excellent collection. Some of the essays offer important discussions of foundational questions about human behavior; others make real progress on concrete issues, such as tax compliance and savings for retirement.

“This collection of essays from diverse scholars will become a standard reference book for those interested in the conditions generating trust and the effects of trust in interpersonal relations, groups, networks, organizations, and institutional systems. Taken together, the essays provide new explanatory insights on the properties and dynamics of trust at the micro, meso, and macro levels of social reality. Theoretical insights are illustrated with data collected by a range of methodologies and a wide range of settings. A book that will appeal to researchers and theorists within academia, but equally significant, a book that will prove useful to policy makers and applies social scientists.” —Jonathan H.

“This outstanding collection of essays, by an accomplished group of historians and legal academics, describes how civil liberties have been limited in the name of real or imagined threats to the nation’s security in the past—and then shows how we might apply the lessons of earlier eras to our current situation. It is hard to think of a more important subject, or of a group of authors who are better qualified to teach us about it.” —David A. Strauss, University of Chicago Law School “Since 9/11 the tension between national security and civil liberties has again become a pressing issue of public concern. The concise, thoughtful, and well-written essays in this volume provide valuable perspectives on current debates by analyzing this tension during key episodes throughout American history.”—David M.
