Contexts reader cover.jpgDoug Hartmann and Chris Uggen have edited the 2nd edition of The Contexts Reader containing more than 60 of the best articles from the award-winning Contexts Magazine. New to this edition are articles from the magazine while it was edited at the University of Minnesota.

Cover: At this defining MomentIn At this Defining Moment, Enid Logan provides a nuanced analysis framed by innovative theoretical insights to explore how Barack Obama's presidential candidacy both reflected and shaped the dynamics of race in the United States.

Cover: Entitled to NothingIn Entitled to Nothing, Lisa Sun-Hee Park investigates how the politics of immigration, health care, and welfare are intertwined and how the concept of "public charge" or "public burden" continue to influence our conception of who can legitimately access public programs. She shows the consequences for the immigrant community and makes important policy suggestions for reforming our immigration system.

Cover: Slums of AspenIn The Slums of Aspen, Lisa Sun-Hee Park and David Pellow, use a wide range of sources including extensive interviews with town officers, school teachers, immigration-control officials, social-service providers and many Latino immigrant workers and their families, to report on the paradox of social contempt for and economic dependence on immigrant labor, as they reveal its root causes and impacts. Some of the press they have received include an opinion piece in the Denver Post.

Cover: American Memories In American Memories, Joachim Savelsberg and Ryan King rigorously examine how the United States remembers its own and others' atrocities and how institutional responses to such crimes, including trials and tribunals, may help shape memories and perhaps impede future violence.
