New Poli-Sci Titles in Collection

September 28, 2020

Too often, students learn about the United States’ place in the world from white, Ivy-league educated men from upper-middle class backgrounds. Sammy Fogel, the ISIP intern who selected these titles notes, “As a student in the Political Science department, one persistent issue I have noticed is the lack of diversity of perspective in instruction.” Despite individually being brilliant and accommodating professors, the chronic sameness of their worldviews and the factors which inform them, have brought about this booklist. Some of these books introduce an otherwise not taught situation, while others provide additional perspective on events with which readers are already likely familiar. The goal of this selection effort is to provide titles for other students who have noticed this same sameness and are seeking a broader perspective.
