Hispanic American Historical Review
The journal published review of a book by Guy Hepp, CSUSB assistant professor of anthropology, “La Consentida: Settlement, Subsistence, and Social Organization in an Early Formative Mesoamerican Community,” in its August edition.
The reviewer, Joel W. Palka of Arizona State University, wrote, "In the end, this is an excellent book, and it is one of the best I have read recently in Mesoamerican archaeology. It is well written and tightly organized, and it presents extensive data to back the author’s theoretical positions on the establishment of village societies."

Aug. 12, 2020
Brian Levin, director of CSUSB’s Center for the Study of Hate and Extremism, was interviewed for a segment about the extremist group the Proud Boys holding a rally in Kalamazoo, Mich., on Aug. 15.
The report noted that Aug. 12 marks the third anniversary of the Charlottesville Unite the Right rally where 19 people were injured and one person died when a driver turned his vehicle into the crowds. The Proud Boys were at that rally too.
"They were noteworthy of one of the few far-right surviving outfits that was present in Charlottesville. They've become most well-known for getting in street brawls with anti- fascists," said Levin.

CSUSB professor writes on the rise of Ethiopia’s ‘Cheetah Generation’
Aug. 11, 2020
Alemayehu G. Mariam, CSUSB professor emeritus, political science, wrote in an opinion column: “For nearly a decade, I have been writing and speaking about the (Abo Shemane) Cheetah (younger) Generation saving Ethiopia.
“I have also exhorted my fellow Hippos (older generation) to get out of the way and to make way for the younger generation to do the heavy lifting in building the New Ethiopia. I first laid out my arguments in this regard in 2010 by focusing on Ethiopian intellectuals and broadened it in 2013.”
