A masterful study! Professor Schorske’s book combines the methodological thoroughness of a scholarly monograph with the breadth of political insight needed to investigate and explain Social Democratic history.Journal of Central European Affairs

A brilliant and formidable analysis of the SDP in the period immediately following its formal rejection of revisionism… An extraordinary synthesis of intellectual, political and sociological history. [Schorske] succeeds in placing the story of the SDP in the general framework of German internal and foreign politics. He has a special flair for the lucid statement of difficult ideas, and combines this with a patience when dealing with endless materials concerning the institutional structures on both the national and the local level, of the party and the trade union movement alike.World Politics

Jacket: The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, by Khalil Gibran Muhammad, from Harvard University Press

“Predictive Policing” and Racial Profiling

While technology used in policing has improved, it hasn’t progressed, says Khalil Gibran Muhammad, if racial biases are built into those new technologies. This excerpt from his book, The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, shows that for the reform called for by the current protests against systemic racism and racially-biased policing to be fulfilled, the police—especially those at the top—will need to change their pre-programmed views on race and the way they see the Black citizens they are supposed to “serve and protect.”
