Hartwig JD ’95 has written a provocative critique of the U.S. through the lens of traditional classical liberalism, arguing that American democracy is imperiled as a result of institutionalized ignorance on the part of her constituents, and suggesting that an honest national debate is the first step toward resolving political, economic, and sociocultural problems.

  • Micheline D’Angelis JD ’09 was the coauthor of “Brazil, Indigenous Peoples, and the International Law of Discovery,” which was published in the Brooklyn Journal of International Law, 2011. The piece traces how Portugal, from the 15th century to the Brazilian independence in 1822, colonized Brazil using the International Law Doctrine of Discovery.

  • Lisa Blee BA ’02 and Jean M. O’Brien have coauthored Monumental Mobility: The Memory Work of Massasoit (University of North Carolina Press, 2019). The book examines the complex history of Cyrus Dallin’s statue Massasoit, originally conceived as a memorial to the landing of the pilgrims in Plymouth, and investigates the bizarre duplications and proliferations of the work that later occurred. The statue’s history is used to draw parallels to the ways in which the historical memory of Indigenous people is commodified and consumed.

  • Deva Gatica Temple BA ’04 coedits a collection of essays, poetry, prose and historical interviews alongside beautiful full-color photos of the Thomas Fire—the flames, the ashes, the community, and the regrowth. This book tells the story of fire through the lens of the human spirit. The writings are poignant first-person narratives of how individuals, families, neighborhoods, and the town of Ojai, California, responded to one of the largest wildfires in U.S. history. It is a testament to the power of community and a hopeful roadmap for how humanity can respond to the effects of climate change in a positive way. In the end, love wins.
