Burns, Eric

Invasion of the Mind Snatchers: Television’s Conquest of America in the Fifties

352 pp., 6” x 9”, 18 halftones, $35.00 cloth, CIP included

August 2010

Temple University Press

In Invasion of the Mind Snatchers, Emmy-award winning broadcaster Eric Burns chronicles the influence of television on the baby boomer generation. Spellbound by Howdy Doody and The Ed Sullivan Show, those children often acted out their favorite programs, purchased the merchandise promoted by performers, and were fascinated by the personalities they saw on screen, often emulating their behavior. It was the first generation raised by TV, and Burns looks at both the promise of broadcasting as espoused by the inventors and how that promise was both redefined and lost by the corporations who helped spread this revolutionary technology.

The circumpolar North has long been the subject of conflicting national aspirations and border disputes, and with the end of the cold war and the coming era of potential resource scarcity, its importance will only grow over the next several decades. Anticipating that renewed prominence, Globalization and the Circumpolar North brings together an array of scholars to explore the effects of this increased attention, from the new opportunities offered by globalization to the potential damage to long-isolated northern communities and peoples.

Ilana Gershon....interview[ed] seventy-two people about how they use Skype, texting, voice mail, instant messaging, Facebook, and cream stationery to end relationships. She opens up the world of romance as it is conducted in a digital milieu, offering insights into the ways in which different media influence behavior, beliefs, and social mores. Above all, this full-fledged ethnography of Facebook and other new tools is about technology and communication, but it also tells the reader a great deal about what college students expect from each other when breaking up—and from their friends who are the spectators or witnesses to the ebb and flow of their relationships. The Breakup 2.0 is accessible and riveting.

May 2010

United States Institute of Peace Press

Youth and Post-Conflict Reconstruction: Agents of Change uses three cases of post-conflict reconstruction—Mozambique, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Kosovo—to explore how youth affect the post-conflict reconstruction process, and how domestic policy, NGO programming, international interventions, and cultural contexts may change that role. The hypotheses drawn from these comparisons will be useful both in guiding future research on youth’s role in post-conflict reconstruction and in helping reconstruction actors facilitate the youth population’s transition from war to peace.

May 2010

Russell Sage Foundation

Authors Jennifer Lee and Frank Bean take two poles of American collective identity—the legacy of slavery and immigration—and ask if today’s immigrants are destined to become racialized minorities akin to African Americans or if their incorporation into U.S. society will more closely resemble that of their European predecessors. They also tackle the vexing question of whether American’s new racial diversity is helping to erode the tenacious black/white color line.

Winner of AWP’s Creative Nonfiction Award, Ghostbread follows Livingston, her six siblings, and her single mother from one ramshackle house to another, from an Indian reservation to a dead-end urban neighborhood, in the perpetual search for something better. Along the way, young Sonja observes the harsh realities her family encounters, as well as small moments of transcendent beauty that somehow keep them going. “Livingston writes with an understated restraint and paints her past in careful detail. The result is captivating. Ghostbread is a heartrending encounter with an adept essayist.”—ForeWord Reviews

In the last forty-five years, immigration reform has brought tens of millions of new immigrants from Latin American countries to the United States.

The Turk in America: The Creation of an Enduring Prejudice

November 2010

University of Utah Press

McCarthy investigates the historical basis for American prejudice towards Turks in the 19th and early 20th centuries, focusing on fraudulent characterizations of Turks, mostly stemming from an antipathy in Europe and America toward non-Christians, and especially Muslims. Spanning 150 years, this comprehensive history explores the misinformation largely responsible for the negative stereotypes of Turks during this period. “This is a fascinating book! [It] corrects a markedly one-sided historiography and breaks new ground in its exposition of how the Ottoman Turks came to be vilified in the United States in the 19th and 20th centuries.”—Edward J.

October 2010

The Problem of the Future World is a compelling reassessment of the later writings of the iconic African American activist and intellectual W.E.B. Du Bois. As Eric Porter points out, despite the outpouring of scholarship devoted to Du Bois, the broad range of writing he produced during the 1940s and early 1950s has not been thoroughly examined in its historical context, nor has sufficient attention been paid to the theoretical interventions he made during those years.

After the gray whale was removed from the Endangered Species list, the Makah tribe of Washington State and the Nuu-chah-nulth Nation of British Columbia announced the revival of whale hunts. The 1999 Makah hunt received enthusiastic support and vehement opposition from around the world. A Nuu-chah-nulth Nation member, Cot<0x00E9> offers a valuable perspective on issues surrounding indigenous whaling. It has served important functions in Makah and Nuu-chah-nulth societies throughout their histories. The revival of whaling has implications for the physical, mental, and spiritual health of these communities today. Whaling, Cot<0x00E9> says, “defines who we are as a people.”

Tasting Freedom: Octavius Catto and the Battle for Equality in Civil War America

September 2010

Temple University Press

Octavius Valentine Catto was a second baseman on Philadelphia’s best black baseball team, a teacher at the city’s finest black school, an activist who fought in the state capital and on the streets for equal rights, and an orator who shared the stage with Frederick Douglass. With his murder during an election-day race riot in 1871, the nation lost a civil rights pioneer—one who risked his life a century before the events that took place in Selma and Birmingham. Tasting Freedom chronicles the life of this charismatic black leader—a “free” black man whose freedom was in name only.

January 2010

Beacon Press

In 1967, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., isolated himself from the demands of the civil rights movement, rented a house in Jamaica with no telephone, and labored over his final manuscript. In this prophetic work, which has been unavailable for more than ten years, he lays out his thoughts, plans, and dreams for America’s future, including the need for better jobs, higher wages, decent housing, and quality education. With a universal message of hope that continues to resonate, King demanded an end to global suffering, asserting that humankind—for the first time—has the resources and technology to eradicate poverty.

University of Nebraska Press

Test Ride on the Sunnyland Bus chronicles the story of an American family against the backdrop of one of the civil rights movement’s lesser-known stories. In January 1957, Joseph Spagna and five other young men waited to board a city bus called the Sunnyland in Tallahassee, Florida. Their plan was simple but dangerous: ride the bus together—three blacks and three whites—get arrested, and take their case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Fifty years later Joseph Spagna’s daughter, Ana Maria, sets off on a journey to understand what happened and why. Winner of the River Teeth Literary Nonfiction prize.

Katherine Tate contends that Black political incorporation and increased affluence since the civil rights movement have made Black politics and public opinion more moderate over time. Black leaders now have greater opportunity to participate in mainstream politics, and Blacks look to elected officials rather than activists for political leadership. Black socioeconomic concerns have moved to the center as poverty has declined and their economic opportunities have improved.

Out and Running is the first systematic analysis of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) political representation that explores the dynamics of state legislative campaigns and the influence of lesbian and gay legislators in the state policymaking process. By examining state legislative elections from 1992 to 2006 and state policymaking from 1992 to 2009, Donald Haider-Markel suggests that the LGBT community can overcome hurdles and win elections; and, once in office, these officials can play a critical role in the policy representation of the community.

An Election for the Ages offers a chronological profile of the dramatic events surrounding the closest ballot result for any governor’s race in American history. Out of 2.8 million votes cast, the winning margin—after the initial tally, a re-total by machine, and ultimately a manual recount—was a razor-thin 133 votes. Written from the perspective of the Office of Secretary of State, the book clarifies and explains interpretations of election statutes, court rulings, and how state officials supervised a heated political battle that reached beyond this particular race and to the rules of democracy itself.

Brain Gain: Rethinking U.S. Immigration Policy

June 2010

Brookings Institution Press

America experiences a “brain gain” from in-migration and needs to maintain its openness to new arrivals to stay competitive and gain access to the special talents of other lands. Yet Americans still don’t see it that way, despite pride in their own ethnic ancestries. West addresses why immigration policy is so politically difficult despite the substantial social, economic, intellectual, and cultural benefits it brings. The problem is one of vision. West argues for a series of reforms to U.S. immigration policy that will put America on a better course for the future and enhance our long-term social and economic prosperity.

Dangerous Times? is an examination of international politics that reveals both theoretical logic and empirical data that support the vision of a future where wars between great powers are unlikely and transnational threats can be contained....Today a far greater percentage of the world’s population lives in peace than at any time in history, and the number and intensity of all types of warfare have dropped steadily since the early 1990s. Terrorism, though reprehensible, can be combated and can actually increase international cooperation among states fighting a common threat. World wars like those of the twentieth century...are unlikely to be repeated in the close-knit world of the twenty-first century.

This landmark study offers a rich and detailed portrait of the negotiating practices of American officials. It assesses the multiple influences—cultural, institutional, historical, and political—that shape how American policymakers and diplomats approach negotiations with foreign counterparts and highlights behavioral patterns that transcend the actions of individual negotiators and administrations. Informed by discussions and interviews with more than fifty seasoned foreign and American negotiators, the authors examine how Americans employ time, language, enticements, and pressure tactics at the negotiating table, and how they use (or neglect) the media, back channel communications, and hospitality outside the formal negotiating arena.

Raymond Schroth’s Bob Drinan: The Controversial Life of the First Catholic Priest Elected to Congress shows that the contentious mixture of religion and politics in this country is nothing new. Four decades ago, Father Robert Drinan, the fiery Jesuit priest from Massachusetts, not only demonstrated against the Vietnam War, he ran for Congress as an antiwar candidate and won, going on to serve for 10 years. Schroth has delved through magazine and newspaper articles to bring us a glimpse into the life of a priest-politician who saw advocacy of human rights as his call.

Based on extensive interviews, Berson recreates these immigrants’ stories about the Old Country and about finding work in Canada, more often than not in the needle trades. Revealing a fervent socialist ideology acquired in the crucible of the Russian Revolution, the stories reveal the influence of Jewish culture, of fights against exploitation, and of struggles to establish unions for better working conditions.

Though the outside world has given it a new persona, Forks’ own identity, culture, and economy remain closely tied to the forest.

The University of Wisconsin Press

When genocidal violence gripped Rwanda in 1994, the international community recoiled, hastily withdrawing its peacekeepers. Late that year, the United Nations Security Council created the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda to seek accountability for some of the worst atrocities since World War II. Journalist Thierry Cruvellier watched the proceedings and gained the confidence of the victims, defendants, lawyers, and judges. Drawing on interviews with these protagonists and his close observations of their interactions, Cruvellier takes readers inside the courtroom to witness the motivations, mechanisms, and manipulations of justice as it unfolded. “The most comprehensive analysis to date.”—Le Monde

Insurgency is the most prevalent form of armed conflict and the subject of countless studies, yet the U.S. military has only recently begun to review doctrine and training in this area. An examination of approaches to counterinsurgency from 30 recent resolved campaigns reveals, for example, that good COIN practices tend to “run in packs” and that the balance of selected good and bad practices perfectly predicts the outcome of a conflict.

In this thirtieth anniversary expanded edition, Michael Lipsky revisits the territory he mapped out in the first edition to reflect on significant policy developments over the last several decades. Despite the difficulties of managing these front-line workers, he shows how street-level bureaucracies can be and regularly are brought into line with public purposes.

In 1999, one in four British children lived in poverty—the third highest child poverty rate among industrialized countries. Five years later, the child poverty rate in Britain had fallen by more than half in absolute terms. How did the British government accomplish this and what can the United States learn from the British experience? Comparing Britain’s anti-poverty initiative to U.S. welfare reform, Jane Waldfogel shows how the policies of both countries have affected child poverty, living standards, and well-being in low income families and suggests next steps for future reforms.

Timoney and Police Commissioner Bill Bratton implemented a number of radical strategies, protocols, and management systems, including CompStat, that led to historic declines in nearly every category of crime. In 1998, Mayor Ed Rendell of Philadelphia hired Timoney as police commissioner to tackle the city’s seemingly intractable violent crime rate. Crime declined in every major category, especially homicide.

Big, attention-grabbing numbers are frequently used in policy debates and media reporting. Peter Andreas and Kelly M. Greenhill see only one problem: these numbers are probably false. Policymakers and the media naively or deliberately accept highly politicized and questionable statistical claims about activities that are extremely difficult to measure. In Sex, Drugs, and Body Counts, political scientists, anthropologists, sociologists, and policy analysts critically examine the murky origins of some of these statistics and trace their remarkable proliferation. They assess the standard metrics used to evaluate policy effectiveness in combating problems such as terrorist financing, sex trafficking, and the drug trade.

In Biocidal, investigative journalist Ted Dracos tells the full story of PCBs for the first time, starting with the chilling chronicle of how the chemical industry manipulated regulatory agencies and scientific findings for decades to continue to reap huge profits, despite their knowledge of the threats posed by their “magic fluid.” Dracos draws on extensive research to document the connection between PCBs and catastrophic human illness, presenting the latest science as studies draws ever more disturbing links between PCBs and continued health impacts ranging from cancer and autism to immunosuppression and reproductive abnormalities.

October 2010

Beacon Press

In an age of uncertainty about how climate change may affect the global food supply, industrial agribusiness promises to keep the world fed. Through the use of factory “farms,” genetic engineering, and the widespread application of chemicals, they put their trust in technology and ask consumers to put our trust in them. However, a look behind the curtain reveals practices that put our soil, water, and health at risk. What are the alternatives? And can they too feed the world? Mark Winne introduces us to innovative “local doers” leading the charge to bring nutritious, sustainable, and affordable food to all.

This original contribution to gender studies, cinema studies, and law enforcement history is recommended for college libraries and readers interested in historical representations of women in crime.”—Library Journal

March 2010

The University of Virginia Press

For a month in the fall of 2002 a series of sniper attacks dominated the headlines in the nation’s capital. Beginning in the Washington suburbs, these crimes eventually stretched over one hundred miles along I-95 to Richmond. More than a thousand law officers—an enormous number for one case—would pursue the perpetrators. The number of reporters covering the story, however, was even greater. On the Trail of the D.C. Sniper uses the remarkable events of that October to explore the shifting character of journalism as it entered the twenty-first century, and to question how this change in the way news is gathered and reported impacted the events it covered.

This riveting book revisits one of the most horrific crimes in modern Arizona’s history: the mass murder of nine residents of a Buddhist temple near Phoenix in 1991. Like In Cold Blood and other true-life crime books, it is a page-turner. But it also raises troubling questions about modern police procedures. “Gary L. Stuart’s exhaustive investigative efforts and keen legal mind underscore the tenuous role the truth sometimes plays in American criminal prosecutions. A finely detailed and ultimately heartbreaking indictment of justice in the land of the free.”—Mike Sager, writer at large, Esquire and author of Wounded Warriors.

Trial and Error in Criminal Justice Reform argues that public policies cannot be neatly divided into successes and failures. The book examines well-intended programs that for one reason or another fell short of their objectives (D.A.R.E. and Operation Ceasefire being prime examples) yet also had positive effects. Berman and Fox tell the stories of committed reformers—judges, cops, attorneys, parole officers, researchers, educators, and politicians—who, despite their knowledge and ambition, did not quite achieve their goals. They introduce readers to a parole officer who has to make a tough judgment call, a legislator who endures political pressure to rewrite sentencing laws...and many others.

Over the last three decades, the United States has embraced the death penalty with tenacious enthusiasm. America’s Death Penalty examines the historical and theoretical assumptions that have formed the basis for the discussion of capital punishment in the United States today. These original essays pursue different strategies for unsettling the usual terms of the debate. In particular, the authors use comparative and historical investigations of both Europe and America in order to cast fresh light on familiar questions about the meaning of capital punishment.

Waterboarding, sleep deprivation, sensory manipulation, stress positions. These and other methods of torture have become garden variety words for practically anyone who reads about current events. What we lack, however, is a larger lens through which to view America’s policy of torture. How did America come to embrace this practice so fully, and how was it justified from a moral, legal, and psychological perspective? This gripping work details the complicity of the United States government in the cruel treatment of prisoners at home and abroad and discusses what can be done to hold those who set the torture policy accountable.

Imagine if a school were to spend more per pupil on ceramics electives than core science classes. What if a district were to push more funding to wealthy neighborhoods than to impoverished ones? Such policies would provoke outrage. Yet these schools and districts are real. Today’s taxpayers spend almost $9,000 per pupil, roughly double what they spent 30 years ago, and educational achievement doesn’t seem to be improving....Educational Economics examines education finance from the school’s vantage point, explaining how the varied funding streams can prevent schools from delivering academic services that mesh with their stated priorities. As government budgets shrink....Educational Economics offers concrete prescriptions for reform.
