About the series

The Justice, Power, and Politics series publishes and pursues new works of history that explore questions of social justice, political power, and struggles for justice in the twentieth century—thereby bringing these books into conversation with each other.

In doing so, JPP helps readers to better understand the evolution of the United States in the last century, as well as integrate and broaden the way we think about these issues.
