Obscene in the extreme : the burning and banning of John Steinbeck's The grapes of wrath by Rick Wartzman( Book )

12 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Few books have caused as big a stir as John Steinbeck's The Grapes of Wrath, when it was published in April 1939. By May, it was the nation's number one bestseller, but in Kern County, California--the Joads' newfound home--the book was burned publicly and banned from library shelves. Obscene in the Extreme tells the remarkable story behind this fit of censorship. When W.B. "Bill" Camp, a giant cotton and potato grower, presided over its burning in downtown Bakersfield, he declared: "We are angry, not because we were attacked but because we were attacked by a book obscene in the extreme sense of the word." But Gretchen Knief, the Kern County librarian, bravely fought back. "If that book is banned today, what book will be banned tomorrow?" Obscene in the Extreme serves as a window into an extraordinary time of upheaval in America--a time when, as Steinbeck put it, there seemed to be "a revolution ... going on.'"--Publisher's description

2 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an era when the impact of management research and education could be argued is in decline, this book helps readers who want to have a real impact through their management practice and/or research and allows them to truly stand on the "shoulders of giants". "Doing Research That Matters" reveals the ways that exceptional scholars and practitioners have sparked research, done it well, and spread it to others, in the process shaping the way we live and manage. It presents a collection of views' and experiences of Nobel Laureates and top management gurus such as Robert Kaplan, Philip Kotler, Howard Gardner, Costas Markides, specifically related to the concepts of research excellence, research process and research outcome. These interviews reveal how their transformative research came about, what drives it, who drives it, how it happens, and why the people who do it feel so passionate about getting the word out. Taking the reader through their life stories it highlights common patterns in the way these people identify a problem worth researching, generate an outcome worth spreading, and generally conduct a worthy professional life
