Nader : crusader, spoiler, icon by Justin Martin( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 1,311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Few figures in our history have had the wide-ranging influence of Ralph Nader. As a public figure Nader has brought about the passage of groundbreaking laws covering everything from auto safety to hazardous x-rays to affordable insurance. Untold numbers of lives have been saved through his efforts. But the private man is shrouded in mystery and secrecy. For this biography Justin Martin spoke with Nader along with more than 300 people, including close associates, old friends, and family. The result is a sweeping portrait, covering Nader's small-town Connecticut boyhood, his days at Harvard Law, the David-and-Goliath battle with GM that launched him into the spotlight, and colorful encounters with characters as varied as Albert Einstein, Gloria Steinem, Fidel Castro, Phil Donahue, Susan Sarandon, Upton Sinclair, and Al Gore. The climax of this extraordinary story is an astonishingly revealing insider's account of the 2000 election

Rebel Souls : Walt Whitman and America's First Bohemians by Justin Martin( Book )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 675 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the shadow of the Civil War, a circle of radicals in a rowdy saloon changed American society and helped set Walt Whitman on the path to poetic immortality. Rebel Souls is the first book ever written about the colorful group of artists-- regulars at Pfaff's Saloon in Manhattan--rightly considered America's original Bohemians. Besides a young Whitman, the circle included actor Edwin Booth; trailblazing stand-up comic Artemus Ward; psychedelic drug pioneer and author Fitz Hugh Ludlow; and brazen performer Adah Menken, famous for her Naked Lady routine. Central to their times, the artists managed to forge connections with Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, and even Abraham Lincoln. This vibrant tale, packed with original research, offers the pleasures of a great group biography like The Banquet Years or The Metaphysical Club. Justin Martin shows how this first bohemian culture--imported from Paris to a dingy Broadway saloon--seeded and nurtured an American tradition of rebel art that thrives to this day. "--

Are the voting patterns of college-aged students and the general public influenced by award-winning celebrities' political opinions in presidential elections? by Andrew Scott Blouin( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis study is entitled "Are the Voting Patterns of College-Aged Students and the General Public Influenced by Award-Winning Celebrities' Political Opinions in Presidential Elections?" This thesis examines primary data from award shows, government campaign financing data, and student survey data obtained at the University of Southern Mississippi. The study investigates both whether award-winning celebrities have a political impact on presidential elections and specifically whether celebrities have a political influence on college-aged people. Data analysis from this study reveals that celebrities do not have a substantial impact upon either presidential elections or upon the voting patterns of young people. This study did find, however, that many people believe that celebrities have more of an impact than they really do. Various reasons for this lack of celebrity political impact and persuasiveness are discussed, including source credibility, trustworthiness, and desensitization. It is hoped that this thesis will add information and insight into the fields of media and political science. It is also hoped that this study will encourage both the general population and young people to think carefully and critically about their voting choices. --Page iv
