​Cedric de Leon

Cedric de Leon is an Associate Professor of Sociology at Providence College. His research examines the ways in which political parties shape labor movements, democratic reform, and race relations. Cedric’s work has appeared in Sociological Theory, Political Power and Social Theory, and Studies in American Political Development. His first book, Party and Society (Polity, 2014), remaps the field of democratic party politics to include sociology’s classical and contemporary contributions. Cedric's second book, The Origins of Right to Work (Cornell University Press, 2015), traces contemporary antilabor rhetoric and legislation to the northern victory in the U.S. Civil War. His third book, which is co-edited with Manali Desai and Cihan Tugal, is titled, Building Blocs (Stanford University Press, 2015) and explains how political parties divide people in their struggle to remake the social order.
