《白人政治的终结:如何弥合自由主义分歧》 (The End of White Politics: How to Heal Our Liberal Divide)

作者:采琳娜•麦克斯韦尔(Zerlina Maxwell)

7月7日上市

2020年大选前,MSNBC政治分析师、SiriusXM主持人采琳娜•麦克斯韦尔仔细分析了民主党之前和现在的问题。基本上,做法仍然不对。在《白人政治的终结》(Hachette出版社)一书结尾,麦克斯韦尔仔细分析了“Bernie bros”(美国参议员伯尼•桑德斯狂热粉丝的蔑称,类似中国的“小粉红”——译者注)相关问题、前市长皮特•布蒂吉格与白人特权以及社交媒体激进主义等,所有话题都谈得很透彻。最后,从麦克斯韦尔的书中可知11月之前应该如何团结党内、赋予边缘群体权力,以及进步人士如何以有利方式转向身份政治。

《大声点说!黑人选民、白人叙事,以及拯救我们的民主》(Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy)

作者:蒂凡尼•D•克罗斯(Tiffany D. Cross)

7月7日上市

2008年贝拉克•奥巴马总统大选中,黑人选民至关重要,2018年中期选举中也举足轻重。坦率地说,黑人在美国每次重大选举中都很关键,然而黑人群体不仅遭到轻视,而且在全美各地都经常被剥夺投票权。《大声点说!》(Amistad出版社)提供了爆炸性的调查,揭露美国的选举地图如何经过特别设计排斥黑人选民。荒谬的是,如果没有黑人选民,选举本身都可能不存在。

《新巴黎女人:塑造巴黎的女性与观念》(The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris)

作者:林德赛•特拉默塔(Lindsey Tramuta)

7月7日上市

美国记者(也是《财富》杂志撰稿人)林德赛•特拉默塔的第一本书是《新巴黎》(The New Paris),本次新书为系列第二本,探讨了巴黎女性对这座“光之城”的影响,也解构了围绕巴黎女性的理想化神话和成见(巴黎女性并非都是白人,不是个个苗条,也不是都爱时尚。)本书介绍了50位活动家、创作者、教育家、前瞻者和颠覆者,从歌手兼词曲作者伊娜•莫贾到市长安妮•伊达尔戈,书中的巴黎定位是蓬勃发展的女性文化中心。如果读者希望去巴黎旅行时带上一本书作伴,它会相当合适。书中的每位女性都介绍了最喜欢的去处,还有女性掌管的企业,包括精品店、艺术场所、小酒馆和咖啡馆等等。

《不速之客:我如何帮助富人成名并毁灭世界》(Gatecrasher: How I Helped the Rich Become Famous and Ruin the World)

作者:本•韦蒂可姆伯(Ben Widdicombe)

7月7日上市

本•韦蒂可姆伯夸口说,他是唯一曾经在Page Six、娱乐新闻网站TMZ和《纽约时报》都工作过的撰稿人。纽约所谓的一手八卦实在劲爆,在《不速之客》(西蒙与舒斯特出版社)一书中,这位社会作家讲述了从奥斯卡和大都会盛典到长岛汉普顿富人区和奢华海湖庄园里的轰动故事。

《大友谊:如何保持亲密关系》(Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close)

作者:阿米纳图•索尔(Aminatou Sow)、安•弗里德曼(Ann Friedman)

7月14日上市

本书充分体现了热门播客《给女友打电话》的主持人阿米纳图•索尔和安•弗里德曼好笑但坦率的智慧和个性。书中回顾了两人相识的头十年,从威胁生命的健康恐慌到丢掉梦寐以求的工作,再到停车场不幸的感恩节晚餐。《大友谊》一书鼓励读者思考身边的亲密关系如何形成、遭遇挑战以及如何维系。

《危险频出的一年:1980年迈阿密暴乱、难民和可卡因》(The Year of Dangerous Days: Riots, Refugees, and Cocaine in Miami 1980)

作者:尼古拉斯•格里芬(Nicholas Griffin)

7月14日上市

新冠病毒流行之前,佛罗里达的迈阿密平均每年接待近1000万游客,人们吵吵嚷嚷地前往原始海滩,还有全美最火爆的夜总会。但迈阿密并非总是如此平和美丽。《危险频出的一年》(37 Ink出版社)详细记录了1980年,包括警察暴行、毒品泛滥、难民危机爆发以及谋杀率上升150%。经历了重重艰难,迈阿密还是顽强挺过来,变得更具活力。而且这座建立在毒品和腐败基础上的城市对美国其他地区都造成了重大影响。

《纪念大道:女儿回忆录》(Memorial Drive: A Daughter’s Memoir)

作者:娜塔莎•特雷休伊(Natasha Trethewey)

7月28日上市

本书中,普利策奖的获奖诗人娜塔莎•特雷休伊探讨了痛苦和失落的深刻体验。19岁时,继父开枪杀了母亲,从此特雷休伊的世界发生了翻天覆地的变化。她追溯了母亲在种族隔离严重的美国南部生活经历,回顾自己在密西西比州身为“混血儿”的少女时代,也探究了1985年亚特兰大纪念大道惨案之前自己内心的错位感和隔离感。

An in-depth examination of the role of Black voters in the American electorate and the subsequent suppression of voting rights; an exploration of long-term friendships from the hosts of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend; and a gossipy (and sometimes sensational) behind-the-scenes look at celebrity culture from one of New York City’s premiere social columnists.

Here are some of the new books being published in July to consider picking up from your local bookstore or library this month.

The End of White Politics: How to Heal Our Liberal Divide by Zerlina Maxwell

Available July 7

Ahead of the 2020 presidential election, MSNBC political analyst and SiriusXM host Zerlina Maxwell breaks down the past and present problems with the Democratic Party. Essentially, they’re still doing it wrong. In The End of White Politics (Hachette), no subject is off the table as Maxwell dismantles the problems around “Bernie bros,” former Mayor Pete Buttigieg and white privilege, and social media activism. In the end, Maxwell’s book aims to serve as a blueprint for uniting the party ahead of November while empowering marginalized groups and explaining how progressives can lean into identity politics in a beneficial manner.

Say It Louder!: Black Voters, White Narratives, and Saving Our Democracy by Tiffany D. Cross

Available July 7

Black voters were critical in the presidential election of Barack Obama in 2008, and they were instrumental in the 2018 midterm elections. Frankly, Black people have played a crucial role in every major American election—and yet this powerful voting bloc is not only dismissed but regularly sees its voting rights deprived throughout the country. Say It Louder! (Amistad Press) is an explosive examination of how America’s electoral map was designed to exclude Black voters, but paradoxically would likely cease to exist without them.

The New Parisienne: The Women & Ideas Shaping Paris by Lindsey Tramuta

Available July 7

In a follow-up to her first book, The New Paris, American journalist (and Fortune contributor) Lindsey Tramuta explores the impact that the women of Paris have had on the City of Light while deconstructing idealized myths and stereotypes surrounding Parisian women (they're not all white, extremely thin, and impossibly fashionable.) Featuring 50 activists, creators, educators, visionaries, and disrupters—from singer-songwriter Inna Modja to Mayor Anne Hidalgo—the book positions Paris as a blossoming cultural center of feminine power. For readers who want to use the book as an accompaniment when traveling to Paris, each section is capped off with the subject’s favorite destinations and women-owned businesses, including boutiques, artistic venues, bistros, and cafés.

Gatecrasher: How I Helped the Rich Become Famous and Ruin the World by Ben Widdicombe

Available July 7

Ben Widdicombe boasts that he’s the only writer to have worked for Page Six, TMZ, and the New York Times. In Gatecrasher (Simon & Schuster), New York’s self-described premiere gossip turned society writer spills the sensational stories that were previously too hot to print, from the Oscars and the Met Gala, to the Hamptons and Mar-a-Lago.

Big Friendship: How We Keep Each Other Close by Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman

Available July 14

Aminatou Sow and Ann Friedman, hosts of the hit podcast Call Your Girlfriend, bring their droll but frank wit and personality to a book that chronicles their first decade in each other’s lives, from life-threatening health scares to getting fired from their dream jobs—and one unfortunate Thanksgiving dinner eaten in a car in a parking lot in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. Big Friendship is meant to invite the reader to think about how your own bonds are formed, challenged, and preserved.

The Year of Dangerous Days: Riots, Refugees, and Cocaine in Miami 1980 by Nicholas Griffin

Available July 14

Pre-pandemic, Miami received nearly 10 million tourists on average annually, all clamoring for spots on the pristine beaches and at some of the hottest nightclubs in the country. But the Floridian city wasn’t always this idyllic. The Year of Dangerous Days (37 Ink) chronicles one year in the city’s history, examining police brutality, a drug epidemic, an explosive refugee crisis, and a 150% murder rate increase over the course of 1980. Against all odds, Miami survived and became a much more vibrant city—one that was built on drug money and corruption, oozing severe ramifications for the rest of the country.

Memorial Drive: A Daughter’s Memoir by Natasha Trethewey

Available July 28

Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Natasha Trethewey explores the profound experience of pain and loss. At age 19, Trethewey had her world turned upside down when her former stepfather shot and killed her mother. Tracing her mother’s history in the deeply segregated South and through her own girlhood as a “child of miscegenation” in Mississippi, Trethewey explores her sense of dislocation and displacement in the lead-up to the harrowing crime that took place on Memorial Drive in Atlanta in 1985.
