Arrested Justice by Beth E. RichieBlack women in marginalized communities are uniquely at risk of battering, rape, sexual harassment,stalking and incest. Through the compelling stories of Black women who havebeen most affected by racism, persistent poverty, class inequality, limitedaccess to support resources or institutions, Beth E. Richie shows that thethreat of violence to Black women has never been more serious, demonstrating howconservative legal, social, political and economic policies have impactedactivism in the U.S.-based movement to end violence against women. Richie arguesthat Black women face particular peril because of the ways that race andculture have not figured centrally enough in the analysis of the causes andconsequences of gender violence. As a result, the extent of physical, sexualand other forms of violence in the lives of Black women, the various forms ittakes, and the contexts within which it occurs are minimized—at best—andfrequently ignored. Arrested Justicebrings issues of sexuality, class, age, and criminalization into focus rightalongside of questions of public policy and gender violence, resulting in acompelling critique, a passionate re-framing of stories, and a call to actionfor change.

The Entrepreneurial Group by Martin RuefRecent surveys show that more than half of American entrepreneurs share ownership in their business startups rather than going it alone. Yet the media and many scholars continue to perpetuate the myth of the lone visionary who single-handedly revolutionizes the marketplace. In The Entrepreneurial Group, Martin Ruef shatters this myth, demonstrating that teams, not individuals, are the leading force behind entrepreneurial startups. This is the first book to provide an in-depth sociological analysis of entrepreneurial groups, and to put forward a theoretical framework for understanding activities and outcomes within them.
