Dust : the archive and cultural history by Carolyn Steedman( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carolyn Steedman has produced an original and sometimes irreverent investigation into how modern historiography has developed. Dust: The Archive and Cultural History considers our stubborn set of beliefs about an objective material world inherited from the nineteenth century with which modern history writing and its lack of such a belief, attempts to grapple. Drawing on her own published and unpublished writing, Carolyn Steedman has produced a sustained argument about the way in which history writing belongs to the currents of thought shaping the modern world. Steedman begins by asserting that in recent years much attention has been paid to the archive by those working in the humanities and social sciences; she calls this practice "archivization." By definition, the archive is the repository of "that which will not go away," and the book goes on to suggest that, just like dust, the "matter of history" can never go away or be erased." -- Publisher's description

The Emperor's new clothes : biological theories of race at the millennium by Joseph L Graves( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Joseph Graves traces the development of thought about human genetic diversity. He argues that racism has persisted in our society because adequate scientific reasoning has not entered into the equation. Graves champions the scientific method, and explains how we may properly ask questions about the nature of population differentiation and how (if at all) we may correlate that diversity to differences in human capacity and behavior. He also cautions us to think critically about scientific findings that have historically been misused in controversies over racial differences in intelligence heritability, criminal behavior disease predisposition, and other traits. Greek philosophy, social Darwinism, New World colonialism, the eugenics movement, intelligence testing biases, and racial health fallacies are just a few of the topics he addresses." "According to Graves, this country cannot truly address its racial problems until people understand that separate human races do not exist empirically. With the biological basis for race removed, racism becomes an ideology, one that can and must be expunged."--Jacket

Compassionate confinement : a year in the life of Unit C by Laura S Abrams( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"To date, knowledge of the everyday world of the juvenile correction institution has been extremely sparse. Compassionate Confinement brings to light the challenges and complexities inherent in the U.S. system of juvenile corrections. Building on over a year of field work at a boys' residential facility, Laura S. Abrams and Ben Anderson-Nathe provide a context for contemporary institutions and highlight some of the system's most troubling tensions. This ethnographic text utilizes narratives, observations, and case examples to illustrate the strain between treatment and correctional paradigms and the mixed messages regarding gender identity and masculinity that the youths are expected to navigate. Within this context, the authors use the boys' stories to show various and unexpected pathways toward behavior change. While some residents clearly seized opportunities for self-transformation, others manipulated their way toward release, and faced substantial challenges when they returned home. Compassionate Confinement concludes with recommendations for rehabilitating this notoriously troubled system in light of the experiences of its most vulnerable stakeholders."--Publisher's website

Liberating memory : our work and our working-class consciousness by Janet Zandy( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This is a book about working-class identity, consciousness, and self-determination. It offers an alternative to middle-class assimilation and working-class amnesia. The twenty-five contributors use memory - both personal and collective - to show the relationship between the uncertain economic rhythms of working-class life and the possibilities for cultural and political agency. Manual labor and intellectual work are connected in these multicultural autobiographies of writers, educators, artists, political activists, musicians, and photographers and in the cultural work - the poems, stories, photographs, lectures, music - they produce. Illustrated with family snapshots, this collection - the first of its kind - includes the work of a female machinist who is also a poet, a secretary who is also a writer, a poet who worked on the assembly line, a musician who was also a red-diaper baby, and an academic who is recovering the working-class writing of her father. The consciousness that is revealed in this book makes evident the value of class identity to collective, democratic struggle

America's boardwalks : from Coney Island to California by Jim Lilliefors( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"This richly documented and illustrated book, however, tells more than the story of the birth and development of boardwalks. Weaving together observations and conversations with business owners, planners, and those who "walk the boards," Lilliefors reveals the vitality of the boardwalk as an idea, rather than just as a place. And he introduces us to some of the people who have kept the boardwalk an American institution for more than a hundred and thirty years."--Jacket
