The Press has particular strengths in political, urban, intellectual, and cultural history, embodied recently by Nan Enstad’s Cigarettes, Inc.; Peter James Hudson’s Bankers and Empire; Emma Hart’s Trading Spaces; Nicholas Dagen Bloom’s How States Shaped Postwar America; and Colin Gordon’s Citizen Brown. Recent books with strong regional appeal include the Caxton Club’s Chicago by the Book, David Rapp’s Tinker to Evers to Chance; Dominic Pacyga’s American Warsaw; and Ann Durkin Keating’s The World of Juliette Kinzie.
I have a special interest in ambitious trade histories and biographies, such as Pamela Bannos’s Vivian Maier; Lawrence Cappello’s None of Your Damn Business; Hendrik Meijer’s Arthur Vandenberg; and Erik S. Gellman’s Troublemakers. Other recent trade titles include Alan Wolfe’s The Politics of Petulance; Dr. David A. Ansell’s The Death Gap; Matthew L. Schuerman’s Newcomers; and Carlo Rotella’s The World is Always Coming to an End.
Before joining the Press in 2013, I held positions at Random House Adult Trade, Artforum/Bookforum, Princeton University Press, and the American Planning Association. I have been a consultant to the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, the Rockefeller Foundation, the Queens Museum, and other institutions. I hold a BA from Carleton College and a PhD in geography from the University of Minnesota.
I am fortunate to have the help of editorial associate Susannah Engstrom, who also handles our titles in geography and cartography; please contact her directly with queries in those fields.
