Intersectionality

Anna Carastathis

Review from American Quarterly:

“Her commitment to close reading is manifested in a rejection of both intersectionality’s skeptics and its fervent supporters… Instead, the book champions ‘analytic clarity, contextual rigor, and a politicized historicized understanding of the trajectory of this concept’ (5).”

Tarnished

George E. Reed

Praise from H-Net:

“I have served in the US Air Force for over nineteen years and found something to relate to on every page of Reed’s book. Toxic leadership is not just a phenomenon that occurs in the military. If you have never had a toxic boss, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us, Tarnished is a notable book that can put negative leadership into perspective.”

Vice Capades

Mark Stein

Review in Kirkus:

“Witty and opinionated insight on how “bad” behavior can morph into, out of, and back into favor over the course of time.”

Justice for All

Jeremiah Unterman

Review in World Magazine:

“Unterman undermines the belief that the Old Testament relies on older testaments. Using not only Biblical evidence but Sumerian, Egyptian, Babylonian, Hittite, Ugaritic, and Assyrian sources, he spotlights the Bible’s ethical advances, including making morality more important than ritual and providing for widows, orphans, strangers, and the poor.”

Anti-Judaism, Antisemitism, and Delegitimizing Israel

Edited by Robert S. Wistrich

Review by the Jewish Book Council:

“This is a valuable book that provides much useful information and perspectives on a problem that is not likely to disappear soon and some valuable suggestions on how to counter it.”

Illicit Love

Ann McGrath

Review from Australian Book Review:

“The harrowing yet ultimately inspiring story of Harriett and Elias… is one of several intimate, ‘transnational’ histories of interracial sex and marriage in nineteenth-century United States and early twentieth-century Australia brought powerfully to life in McGrath’s Illicit Love.”
