The New Black Sociologists follows in the footsteps of 1974’s pioneering text Black Sociologists: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives, by tracing the organization of its forbearer in key thematic ways. This new collection of essays revisits the legacies of significant Black scholars including James E. Blackwell, William Julius Wilson, Joyce Ladner, and Mary Pattillo, but also extends coverage to include overlooked figures like Audre Lorde, Ida B. Wells, James Baldwin and August Wilson - whose lives and work have inspired new generations of Black sociologists on contemporary issues of racial segregation, feminism, religiosity, class, inequality and urban studies. Rather than a culmination of the legacies past, this volume signals a new starting point bearing the gifts inherited and the weight of the all-important work ahead.

In this groundbreaking work, Patrice D. Rankine asserts that the classics need not be a mark of Eurocentrism, as they have long been considered. Instead, the classical tradition can be part of a self-conscious, prideful approach to African American culture, esthetics, and identity. Ulysses in Black demonstrates that, similar to their white counterparts, African American authors have been students of classical languages, literature, and mythologies by such writers as Homer, Euripides, and Seneca. Ulysses in Black closely analyzes classical themes (the nature of love and its relationship to the social, Dionysus in myth as a parallel to the black protagonist in the American scene, misplaced Ulyssean manhood) as seen in the works of such African American writers as Ralph Ellison, Toni Morrison, and Countee Cullen. Rankine finds that the merging of a black esthetic with the classics—contrary to expectations throughout American culture—has often been a radical addressing of concerns including violence against blacks, racism, and oppression. Ultimately, this unique study of black classicism becomes an exploration of America's broader cultural integrity, one that is inclusive and historic.

“Mountain,” Baldwin said, “is the book I had to write if I was ever going to write anything else.” Go Tell It On The Mountain, first published in 1953, is Baldwin's first major work, a novel that has established itself as an American classic. With lyrical precision, psychological directness, resonating symbolic power, and a rage that is at once unrelenting and compassionate, Baldwin chronicles a fourteen-year-old boy’s discovery of the terms of his identity as the stepson of the minister of a storefront Pentecostal church in Harlem one Saturday in March of 1935. Baldwin’s rendering of his protagonist’s spiritual, sexual, and moral struggle of self-invention opened new possibilities in the American language and in the way Americans understand themselves.

Es ist die Geschichte einer Liebe: Maggie Nelson verliebt sich in Harry Dodge, einen Künstler – oder eine Künstlerin? – mit fluider Genderidentität. Harry hat bereits ein Kind, Maggie wird schwanger, zu viert bauen sie ein gemeinsames Leben. "Die Argonauten" ist eine ergreifende Geschichte queeren Familienlebens, zugleich erfindet Maggie Nelson eine ganz eigene Form der philosophischen Erkundung. Memoir, Theorie, Poesie: Es ist ein Buch, das sich nicht einordnen lässt und das unsere Einordnungen herausfordert mit seinem radikal offenen Denken. Im Geiste von Susan Sontag und Roland Barthes verbindet Maggie Nelson theoretische und persönliche Erkenntnissuche, um zu einer neuen Erzählung des Wesens von Liebe und Familie zu gelangen.
