Three Faculty Members Publish Books
Three members of the Guilford College faculty have books either published or forthcoming:
Richie Zweigenhaft, Dana Professor of Psychology, is co-author of The New CEOs: Women, African American, Latino, and Asian American Leaders of Fortune 500 Companies, which was published by Roman & Littlefield Publishers in May. It is the latest in a series of books he has written with G. William Domhoff about diversity in the American power structure. Library Journal called The New CEOs “An excellent book for scholars interested in data-driven sociology, psychology and cultural studies relating to business and for readers in the business world.”
George Guo, associate professor of political science and director of intercultural studies, is author of China’s Security State: Philosophy, Evolution, and Politics, forthcoming from Cambridge University Press. The book is an analysis of several interrelated issues that exist at the intersection of security and intelligence apparatuses and elite politics. It is believed to be the first comprehensive study on Chinese security and intelligence apparatuses in the current scholarship.
Kathryn Shields, assistant professor of art, is co-author of Gateways to Art: An Introduction to the Visual Arts, which will be published by W.W. Norton & Co. in October. A textbook intended for use in Introduction to Visual Arts courses, Gateways to Art is organized around eight “gateway images,” including the Pyramids of Giza and Raphael’s “The School of Athens.” Each image is examined throughout the book from a formal, historical or thematic perspective. The book’s shorter chapters and linked conversations looking at each work of art in different ways are designed to encourage critical thinking about artworks.
