Books for Understanding News

AAUP has published two new Books for Understanding resources this spring. "Guns in America," published in March, compiles university press scholarship on gun policy, violence, the Second Amendment, and more, in consideration of the ongoing tragedy of gun violence in America, of which the mass shootings in Aurora, Colorado, last summer, and Sandy Hook, Connecticut, this winter, are only the most recent and notable. "Chechnya," published in April, seeks to counterbalance public speculation on the homeland of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects with critical understanding of the history and culture of the Caucasus region and on the recent Chechen wars.
