We’re highlighting our Justice, Power, and Politics book series.
The Justice, Power, and Politics series publishes new works that explore questions of social justice and political power and struggles for justice in the twentieth century. The series pursues—and brings into conversation with each other—books that use the lenses of justice, power, and politics to help readers better understand the evolution of the United States in the last century. The series includes works by both junior and more seasoned scholars that will find common ground not only in their content but also by broadening the way we think about these issues.
The first JPP books were published in 2013. For more information, visit the series website.
Recent events continue to bring new attention to subjects like police brutality, institutionalized racism, protests and activism, and more. These subjects are among the pillars of the UNC Press publishing program, and have cast new light on some of our newest books, and some of our classic bestselling titles.
You can also check out our full listing of new and classic books in African American Studies.
All of our books (in fact, our entire site) are available now at our 40 percent AAIHS conference discount. Plus if your order totals $75, domestic U.S. shipping is FREE! Just use promo code 01DAH40 at checkout.
