Haunted Children: Rethinking Medication of Common Psychological Disorders
Arthur F. Roemmelt ‘65 provides a first-person account written in a refreshingly informal style, based upon case studies of the author’s patients, children with a variety of psychiatric disorders. The book is provocative both as a testimonial and as a eulogy to long and costly psychotherapy, a type of treatment “no longer desirable in a society that is adamant about cost effectiveness and armed with efficient medications.” It also warns that the increasing substitution of pharmacology for psychotherapy has negative as well as positive consequences. Dr. Roemmelt, a psychiatrist who practices in Syracuse, NY, argues with conviction and compassion that what troubles many children is more truly treated in therapy rather than, as a mere biochemical imbalance, by means of medication.

The Bulgarian Economy: Lessons from Reform during Early Transition
Hamilton Professor of Economics Derek Jones has collaborated with University of Delaware Professor Jeffrey Miller to compile a book that examines the early transition experiences of Bulgaria by making comparisons with the experiences from other socialized countries and analyzing the reasons for the uneven pace of change. They highlight important and distinctive features of Bulgaria’s economic reform such as attempts to nurture small farms, introduce progressive human resource management practices and trade union reform.

The Misconceiver
In Lucy Ferriss's most recent novel, The Misconceiver, she examines a futuristic America that has renounced abortion rights. Ferriss creates a frightening world set 20 years in the future, uncomfortably close to the political debates of today. Ferriss, a professor of English at Hamilton College, has created a time unsettling to contemplate, where women have lost reproductive rights and “misconceptions” are once again performed secretly in basements and back-alleys.

Sex and Gender in Medieval and Renaissance Texts, The Latin Tradition
Hamilton Professor of Classics Barbara Gold, in conjunction with Professors of Classics Paul Allen Miller and Charles Platter, examines interrelated topics in Medieval and Renaissance Latin literature: the status of women as writers, the status of women as rhetorical figures, and the status of women in society from the fifth to the early seventeenth century.

Journey to Freedom: The African-American Great Migration
From 1916 to 1919, approximately half a million black southerners made the same trek northward; in the decade that followed, a million more joined them in the cities of the North. Filled with voices of hope and courage, Journey to Freedom by Hamilton History Professor Maurice Isserman, reveals the stories of the men and women who went looking for freedom, dignity, equal rights, and basic economic opportunity up north. Coverage also relates the far-reaching social, economic, and political consequences for the nation as a whole during this greatest internal mass migration of people in American history. More ...
Women, Religion, and Social Change in Brazil's Popular Church
What happens when liberation theology's attempt to mobilize the Brazilian poor for political and social change meets the realities of church, community, and culture in this predominantly Catholic country? In Women, Religion, and Social Change in Brazil's Popular Church , Hamilton Government Professor Carol Ann Drogus assesses the successes and failures of the movement as she documents how religious personality and gender affect the way the urban poor on the eastern outskirts of Sao Paulo respond to the liberationist message. More ...
A Clash of Scientific Cultures: The Relationship Between Basic and Applied Research
The power and effectiveness of the scientific method lies in its ability to clarify the causality of phenomena. There are many practical dissimilarities across the various sciences and across research projects with differing goals. Nonetheless, the fundamental procedure is the same: investigators strive to make planned observations that eliminate extraneous variables and identify those independent variables critical for producing changes in one or more dependant variables.

Feminist Genealogies, Colonial Legacies, Democratic Futures
Feminist Genealogies calls upon us to rethink feminist theories and practices within a complex intersectional and transnational framework. In contesting prevailing notions of global feminism, which tend to depart from resistance practices crafted in the West, Mohanty and Alexander have chosen essays that create new and provocative conversations among activist women involved in important transformative political projects in Asia, Africa, Europe, and North America. These conversations demand that we think deeply about advanced capitalist relations and how they reproduce and are reproduced through forms of domination that are sexualized, gendered, and racialized. This timely collection of essays should stimulate new discussions about feminist political engagement and about feminist organizing practices as ways of envisioning and struggling for democratic futures. - Angela Y. Davis, University of California Presidential Chair in African American and Feminist Studies More ...
