David Twigg, a first-time author and director of the Jack D. Gordon Institute of Public Policy and Citizenship Studies, said he enjoyed the interdisciplinary nature of the reception. His book, The Politics of Disaster: Tracking the Impact of Hurricane Andrew, was published in 2012.

The sidebar to the right contains a list of faculty-authored books that have been published since January 2013.
