Track record: Memoir of a Race Traitor sold many copies and is still being assigned in courses in multiple disciplines—our permissions department has fielded hundreds of requests for this currently-out-of-print material since we acquired Mab’s books.

Major publishing event: Like Robert Caro, Katherine Boo or Arundhati Roy, Mab Segrest is one of those public intellectuals who immerses herself deeply in a project for decades to produce a masterpiece. Readers and book reviewers have been eagerly anticipating this work for decades.

Groundbreaking work: There is a dearth of scholarship about psychiatry in America, and a total absence of work that focuses on the South. This book uncovers a sordid, haunting, and previously hidden intellectual history that leads from the genocide of the Cherokee Nation through the American eugenics movement that inspired Adolf Hitler.

Author stature and standing: Mab Segrest is a hero of the American Left, whose crusading work against the KKK and neo-Nazis in the south in the eighties has become a template for today’s antifascist activists. She continues to be deeply involved in anti-hate organizing work, and is a renowned feminist and antiracist scholar.

Contemporary and Timeless relevance: Now more than ever before, our country is struggling with race and mental health; the very nature of sanity and the immense psychological power of racism.
