Absolutely American : four years at West Point by David Lipsky ( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,887 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Drawing on complete, unprecedented access to West Point and its cadets, David Lipsky explores the academy's rich history, describes the demanding regimen that swallows students' days, and examines the Point as a reflection of our society. Is it a quaint anachronism, or does it still embody the ideals of equality, honesty, and loyalty that moved Theodore Roosevelt to proclaim it the most "absolutely American" institution? Lipsky tackles these questions through superbly crafted portraits of cadets and the elite officers who mold them, following them into classrooms, barracks, mess halls, and military exercises. His reportage extends from 1998 through 2002, arguably the most eventful four years in West Point history. He witnesses the end of hazing, the arrival of TV and telephones in dorm rooms, the exposure and concealment of several scandals, and the dramatic aftermath of 9/11. He depicts young people of every race and class, and details a rigorous training program that erases their preconceptions and makes them a tight-knit community

Late bloomers : coming of age in today's America: the right place at the wrong time by David Lipsky ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Lipsky and Abrams look at the economic, social, and political forces that have shaped America since the sixties to find the roots of the generation's issues. Lipsky and Abrams argue convincingly that twenty-somethings face problems rooted in long-term shifts in American society and its economy that no individual can control. And they make the case that until the generation finds a real niche in the economy, overall recovery will be slower and more tenuous than ever. Late Bloomers also puts names and faces on the statistics about the numbers of twenty-somethings who are un- or underemployed (30 percent of all people under thirty in 1992), who can't afford to marry (the average age for first marriages is now twenty-nine for men and twenty-seven for women) or own homes (the median age for first-home ownership is now thirty-five, up from twenty-seven in 1980)

Although of course you end up becoming yourself a road trip with David Foster Wallace by David Lipsky ( )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"If you can think of times in your life that you've treated people with extraordinary decency and love, and pure uninterested concern, just because they were valuable as human beings. The ability to do that with ourselves. To treat ourselves the way we would treat a really good, precious friend. Or a tiny child of ours that we absolutely loved more than life itself. And I think it's probably possible to achieve that. I think part of the job we're here for is to learn how to do it

Cocycle Constructions for Topological Field Theories by David Lipsky ( )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this thesis, we explore a chain-level construction in smooth Deligne cohomology that produces data for extended topological field theories. For closed oriented manifolds $Sigma$, this construction takes the form of a chain map $tau_Sigma$ from the smooth v{C}ech-Deligne complex on a manifold $X$ to a degree-shifted version of the same complex on the mapping space $X^Sigma$. More generally, if $Sigma$ has boundary $partial Sigma$, the construction produces a chain null-homotopy of the chain map $tau_{partial Sigma}$ associated to the boundary
