Civil Rights Movements: Past & Present
The first edition, The Civil Rights Movement , covered the vast territory of pre-millennial American advocacy for equality, and the movement has just gotten stronger in the twenty years since the first edition.

This new, two-volume set explores the ways in which civil rights have been given, cemented, overturned, or left unrecognized, from the first uprisings to present day 2020. In 2014, as the nation celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of the March on Washington, civil rights groups such as Black Lives Matter were organizing. Though our societal rhetoric has shifted, the struggle remains the same.

Among issues discussed in this new edition:
  • Arizona HB 2281 Limits Ethnic Studies
  • Flint Water Crisis
  • North Carolina Begins Compensating Victims of Eugenics
  • Unrest in Baltimore
  • Black Lives Matter
  • 2018 Voter Suppression
  • Million Hoodies Movement
  • Protests of Confederate Monuments 
  • Mass Incarceration
  • Infrastructure and Inequality

Price: $105
Critical Insights: LGBTQ Literature presents a genre of literature that is produced by (or especially relevant to) lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgender persons, “queers,” intersexuals, and/or asexual people and this title focuses primarily on American literature of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Such literature has long existed and has sometimes even existed openly, especially in ancient Greece and Rome. Only very recently, however, has study of such literature become widespread and prominent. Writing that was, for many centuries, often ignored, shunned, banned, or even destroyed is now freely produced and freely discussed.

So much of great literature centers on explorations of gender, sex, and sexuality. What does it mean to be a proper man or woman; what if one cannot be properly called either? Should one wield one’s sexual power politically?
Critical Insights: Civil Rights Literature,
Past & Present
American civil rights literature has largely been associated with speeches, letters, and non-fiction works produced by African-American activists of the 1950s and 60s such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X. This volume not only examines key works of the African-American civil rights debate past and present, it also explores issues of gender equality and sexual orientation integral to civil rights studies.

This recent addition to the Critical Insights series aims to critically engage with the existing plethora of canonized literature while contemporizing the conversation with topics currently affecting our nation. Edited by Christopher Allen Varlack from the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, Critical Insights: Civil Rights Literature, Past and Present begins with two introductory essays from the editor that detail the intersection of Race, Gender, and Orientation in American civil rights literature.
