Her many books include “States and Revolutions” (1979); “Bringing the State Back In” (1985, with Peter Evans and Dietrich Rueschemeyer); “Protecting Soldiers and Mothers: The Political Origins of Social Policy in the United States” (1992), and “What A Mighty Power We Can Be: African American Fraternal Groups and the Struggle for Racial Equality” (2006, with Ariane Liazos and Marshall Ganz). She is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, the American Philosophical Society, and the National Academy of Sciences.
