Disarmed and dangerous : the radical lives and times of Daniel and Philip Berrigan by Murray Polner( Book )

6 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 814 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What transformed Daniel and Philip Berrigan from conventional Roman Catholic priests into "holy outlaws"--For a time the two most wanted men of J. Edgar Hoover's FBI? And how did they evolve from their traditionally pious, second-generation immigrant beginnings to become the most famous (some would say notorious) religious rebels of their day? Disarmed and Dangerous, the first full length unauthorized biography of the Berrigans, answers these questions with an incisive and illuminating account of their rise to prominence as civil rights and antiwar activists. It also traces the brothers' careers as constant thorns in the side of church authority as well as their leadership of the ongoing Plowshares movement - a highly controversial campaign of civil disobedience against the contemporary arms trade and nuclear weapons. In the spring of 1968, the Berrigans stood side by side in a Catonsville, Maryland, parking lot, praying over the flames from a basket of draft files that they had just seized from a nearby Selective Service office, doused with napalm, and ignited. Their fire soon sparked a nationwide series of draft-file burnings, all aimed at halting the bitterly divisive Vietnam War. This initial protest led to harsh prison terms for the Berrigans and seven others, but it publicly established the Berrigans in roles they still fulfill: men of moral conscience who would suffer to confront the Enormous power of the state. Murray Polner and Jim O'Grady plumb the Berrigans' contradictions: among them, Philip's secret marriage, while he was still a Josephite priest, to Elizabeth McAlister, then a Catholic nun, which led to their dismissals by their respective religious orders and Philip's excommunication from the church; and Daniel's speech faulting Israel's treatment of Palestinians, and the resulting criticism loosed upon him from pro-Israeli Americans and many ff his allies on the left

Black/white/green/red : the politics of education in ethnic America by David Bresnick( Book )

4 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The upheaval in large city school systems during the late 1960s and early 1970s is examined in this book. Most of the specific examples are drawn from school districts in New York City, such as Ocean Hill-Brownsville and Canarsie. The problems of growing demands for community control, ethnic and racial conflicts, and school decentralization are explained in sociocultural perspective. The history of large city school system bureaucracy and ensuing reforms are described. The struggle for student rights, community involvement and educational change is explained in light of school board politics, teacher unionism, school administration and legislative action. Integration and busing are discussed in depth. The social and political atmosphere of ethnic demands and educational change in the period is recreated and the actions of those in power (boards of education, courts, politicians, tax exempt institutions, etc.) are criticized. Suggestions are made as to how these bodies might act in the future to provide stable, nondiscriminatory school systems in which all children can get a decent education. (Wi)
