Right-wing populism in America : too close for comfort by Chip Berlet( Book )
10 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 776 libraries worldwide
Overview: Right-wing militias and other antigovernment organizations have received heightened public attention since the Oklahoma City bombing. While such groups are often portrayed as marginal extremists, the values they espouse have influenced mainstream politics and culture far more than most Americans realize. This important volume offers an in-depth look at the historical roots and current landscape of right-wing populism in the United States. Illuminated is the potent combination of anti-elitist rhetoric, conspiracy theories, and ethnic scapegoating that has fueled many political movements from the colonial period to the present day. The book examines the Jacksonians, the Ku Klux Klan, and a host of Cold War nationalist cliques, and relates them to the evolution of contemporary electoral campaigns of Patrick Buchanan, the militancy of the Posse Comitatus and the Christian Identity movement, and an array of millennial sects. Combining vivid description and incisive analysis, Berlet and Lyons show how large numbers of disaffected Americans have embraced right-wing populism in a misguided attempt to challenge power relationships in U.S. society. Highlighted are the dangers these groups pose for the future of our political system and the hope of progressive social change
One bright shining moment : the forgotten summer of George McGovern ( visu )
3 editions published between 2005 and 2011 in English and held by 477 libraries worldwide
This documentary retraces George McGovern's bold presidential campaign of 1972 - a grassroots campaign that fought for peace and justice, and positioned ideas and people first. However, what is remembered today as being the ultimate political defeat of the American Century may also have been its high watermark. The film poses this central question: what does the crushing electoral defeat of a man so well respected for his decency and intellect say about the electoral process, the American government, and more importantly, what does it say about the forces at work on the American people---then and now?

The options handbook : communicating with prospective students about postsecondary educational options by Mary S Carlson( Book )
3 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 16 libraries worldwide
A study conducted by 19 student researchers under a grant from the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education, concluded that very little information is designed to aid students to make a choice for their future. Three separate publications resulted, called the "Options Handbooks." Material from these handbooks is synthesized here. The summaries review the information needs of post secondary students in the context of recent consumer protection debates, review the need for financial resources information and give examples of dissemination strategies in five states and at the national level, and discuss the relation between the roles of information and counseling, with the focus on how to assist students in developing their decision-making abilities. Fifty-nine references are included. (Author/DS)
Doublespeak : the rhetoric of the far right since 1945 by Matthew Feldman( Book )
2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 11 libraries worldwide
This timely intervention exposes the euphemized language of the extreme right as a deceptive attempt to secure greater influence over public policy. Since the end of World War II, the extreme right has made strategic use of?doublespeak," which apes the language of liberal democracy. Attentive observation and accurate recognition of these tactics means taking the extreme right's deliberately crafted slogans, symbols, and themes seriously. These essays investigate the extreme right's attempts at?repackaging" contemporary ultranationalism to make it more palatable to mainstream European and Ame

Debunking conspiracy theories by Chip Berlet( Sound Recording )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 4 libraries worldwide
Theories are unproven assertions. If empirical evidence is presented then the theory moves to fact. In another realm, allegations are not subject to rigorous examination. There is a strain of thought that embraces beliefs ranging from UFOs in Roswell to who killed JFK to black helicopters. These theories take on an almost theological conviction. If one challenges them that is proof that you are a dupe. In all instances it is a sinister "they" who are behind everything. Self-styled experts appear with websites and in nano seconds jump from speculation to fact. Their "findings" are quickly transmitted. A lot of it is, A happened therefore Y is true. The leaps of logic are breathtaking. 9/11 has spawned the latest cottage industry of theories
