South End Press, the Boston-based press that folded last year, has struck a deal to have four of its stranded titles distributed by Duke University Press.
The titles covered in the deal, which have been out of print since South End closed, are: Eli Clare's Exile and Pride: Disability, Queerness, and Liberation; Andrea Smith's Conquest: Sexual Violence and American Indian Genocide; Frank B. Wilderson, III's Incognegro: A Memoir of Exile and Apartheid; and Dean Spade's Normal Life: Administrative Violence, Critical Trans Politics, and the Limits of Law.
DUP, which has previously published titles by both Smith and Wilderson, will bring all four books back into print, as well as issue the first e-book editions for the four titles. Additionally, Spade's book will, Duke said, be published in a "revised and expanded" edition.
Sales manager for DUP, Michael McCullough, said that booksellers and students have been "scrambling to find copies of these important books. Being able to make these books available again--and as e-books for the first time--is very exciting.”
