Although there have been many books written on the slave trade and many others on life in the ante-bellum Navy, no other book has succeeded so well at bringing to life the issues of America's role in the Middle Passage. Language and Power in the Modern World covers contemporary issues of communication theory and sociolinguistics, ranging from the global to the interpersonal. Dick Blau has been making art photographs of the people he lives with for more than thirty years; cultural theorist Jane Gallop has been living with him-and his camera-for twenty years.
This is Gallop's nuanced meditation on photography and the place it has in her private life and in her family. This book examines the forces that gave rise to a great wave of urban mega-projects in the s and s, that broke this wave in the years around , and that have shaped a new generation of such projects in the decades since. Knowledgeable contributors ask three basic questions in 13 chapters covering as many different themes: Are cities coming back? Are all suburbs growing? Are cities and suburbs becoming alike? Each chapter begins with a summary or analysis of the theme, followed by the methods used to analyze and present the data, the findings, and a conclusion.
Carnes Lord offers practical advice on the challenges facing leaders dealing with war and crises, diplomacy, the use of secret intelligence, the role of political advisors, the media, and more. This report provides detailed descriptions of subgroups, their stands on various issues, and what those stands may mean for the West. Since the outcomes can matter greatly to the international community, that community might wish to influence them by providing support to appropriate actors.
The author recommends a mixed approach of providing specific types of support to those who can influence the outcomes in desirable ways. Its twelve chapters, written by outstanding scholars, review the impact and influence of the Christian Right in those states where it has had its most significant presence: South Carolina, Virginia, Texas, Florida, Michigan, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Colorado, California, Maine, Oregon, and Washington.
Nivola Editors Agenda for the Nation pp. It exalts the element too often missing in those who would lead us, in commerce, government, the media, or even in religion and education. The element is courage--courage to follow one's conscience rather than yielding to self-serving ambition in the pursuit of personal success. He presents as well a veritable encyclopedia of our nation's most pressing problems. It is a challenging call to arms for citizen participation in solving them.
This book is brief, but its scope is ambitious. According to Williams, Reagan and his foremost disciple George W. Bush have created a plutocracy where the United States is no longer a government of the people, by the people, and for the people but is ruled by the wealthiest individuals and corporate America.
This is the question Weeks poses in his study of Chile from onward. He explains how the Chilean military has maintained a high level of political influence in the tumultuous aftermath of dictatorial rule by Army General Augusto Pinochet, thus confounding a smooth transition to civilian authority.

Based on interviews, government documents, military journals, and other archival sources, Weeks describes how presidents, military officers, members of Congress, and judges have interacted since the end of the military regime. Much more than a lengthy list of potential organizations and contacts, Careers in International Affairs goes beyond what is traditionally offered to international job seekers by providing, among other attributes, a wealth of insight and information on global career networking.
Particularly helpful is the addition of a chapter on Internet job searches, which have grown exponentially since the last edition. Through a triangulation of the ideas of Derrida, Foucault, and Habermas, Barnett argues that deconstruction, poststructuralism, and critical theory converge around shared concerns for the possibilities of democratic public life in a globalizing age.
Focusing on the United States, Europe, and South Africa, he demonstrates the indispensability of concepts of the public sphere, representation, and spatiality in a cultural democracy. The book crosses the following disciplines: political theory, philosophy, geography, communications, and political science. Arons A Voice for Nonprofits pp. A Voice for Nonprofits analyzes the effect of government restrictions on the participation of nonprofits in the policymaking process and suggests ways to address the problems.
This is the first in-depth survey of the people, ideologies, and practices that make up this fragmented yet increasingly radical and militant milieu. Praise for the first edition: "A beautifully written and meticulously researched history of the idea of human rights. The survivors came of age as the "protest generations", joining the social movements of the s and s. They marched for civil rights, against war, for textile and healthcare workers, and for black power and women's liberation.
This book is also a story of one divided southern community, from the protests of black college students of the late s to the convening this January of a Truth and Community Reconciliation Project on the South African model intended to reassess the Massacre. Baker was a gifted grassroots organizer whose remarkable career spanned fifty years and touched thousands of lives.
Essential for all biography, civil rights, community organizing, feminism, and 20th century U. Du Bois predicted a century ago that the problem of the twentieth century was the 'color line. White Nationalism, Black Interests explains how and why white racism continues to play a central role in the setting of public policy and governmental priorities. Richly documented and well argued, White Nationalism, Black Interests is an extraordinary accomplishment in the field of black politics.
With new material on recent Supreme Court cases involving church-state relations and a new concluding chapter on America's religious and political landscape, this volume is an eloquent and thorough interpretation of how religious faith and political freedom have blended and fused to form part of our collective history-and most importantly, how each concept must respect the boundaries of the other.
The obvious is that people are, in maddeningly diverse ways, religious, and that the way people are is a public reality to be welcomed in order to make our common life more authentically human.
This book both provokes and convinces. Recommended for academic and public libraries.

By integrating the often violent history of colonization of this period and the ensuing emergence of property rights with an examination of the decline of an aristocratic ruling class and the growth of democracy and the market economy, John Weaver describes how the landscapes of North America, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa were transformed by the pursuit of resources. You Call This an Election? America's Peculiar Democracy pp. Florida's continuing ability to misplace votes recently and in the Presidential election is only part of the iceberg we have been made privy to and Steven Schier takes a hard, evaluative look not only at what is there in plain sight, but that which lurks below the surface and not only in Florida and not only with the electoral college.
He further proposes practical improvements that will make our surprisingly peculiar democratic processes healthy, whole, and responsive again.
The hardships these children endured are disturbing, but more disturbing is the story of how the governments and agencies that set out to care for them eventually became the children's tormentors. He succeeds in showing the multiple layers of contested memory, as some black leaders embraced national reconciliation, and others did not.
In the aftermath of that event it is not unwarranted pessimism that lines the pages of Grave New World , it is unavoidable reality. The challenges and complexities might seem insurmountable but the first step in solving problems is recognizing that they exist. Grave New World provides an eye-opening assessment of the prospects for peace and security in the 21st century.
America Unbound is refreshingly original and it makes the case for President Bush as the master of his own unilateralist revolution.
