Organized labor and American politics, 1894-1994 the labor-liberal alliance ( )
3 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 1,865 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Organized Labor and American Politics, 1894-1994 traces the rise and fall of labor's power over the course of the twentieth century. It does so through provocative and engaging essays written by distinguished scholars of the modern labor movement. The essays focus on different times and places, from turn-of-the-century steel mills to the streets of 1930s Detroit to the halls of Congress in the 1990s. Drawing on a broad range of primary sources, the authors adopt a variety of approaches, from broad syntheses to careful case studies. Altogether, the essays tell a single story of workers struggling to find a voice for themselves and their unions within the nation they helped to build. It is a story of victories won and of defeats endured
The UAW and the heyday of American liberalism, 1945-1968 by Kevin Boyle ( Book )
6 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 706 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The UAW engaged in these struggles in an attempt to build a cross-class, multiracial reform coalition that would push American politics beyond liberalism and toward social democracy. The effort was in vain; forced to work within political structures - particularly the postwar Democratic party - that militated against change, the union was unable to fashion the alliance it sought. The UAW's political activism nevertheless suggests a new understanding of labor's place in postwar American politics and of the complex forces that defined liberalism in that period. The book also supplies the first detailed discussion of the impact of the Vietnam War on a major American union and shatters the popular image of organized labor as being hawkish on the war

Arc of justice [a saga of race, civil rights, and murder in the Jazz Age] by Kevin Boyle ( Recording )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The grandson of a slave, Dr. Ossian Sweet moved his family to an all-white Detroit neighborhood in 1925. When his neighbors attempted to drive him out, Sweet defended himself--resulting in the death of a white man and a murder trial for Sweet. There followed one of the most important (and shockingly unknown) cases in Civil Rights history. Also caught up in the intense courtroom drama were legal giant Clarence Darrow and the newly formed National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP)

Politics and principle: the united automobile workers and american labor-liberalism, 1948-1968. (volumes i and ii) by Kevin Boyle ( )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Harry Truman's 1948 election victory forced the UAW to abandon any hope of forming a labor-based third party. Instead, the UAW leadership forged an alliance with the Democratic party. Rather than becoming an adjunct to the party, however, the UAW worked throughout the 1950s and early 1960s to force a realignment of political forces in an attempt to transform the Democrats into an American version of the British Labor Party. Stymied throughout the 1950s, the UAW found new hope in the civil rights
Arc of justice a saga of race, rights, and murder in the Jazz Age by Kevin Boyle ( Recording )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
[In this book, the author offers] a great service to history ... With deep research and graceful prose, he has taken a single moment, the hot September day in 1925 when Ossian and Gladys Sweet moved into a bungalow on Garland Avenue in Detroit, and from that woven an amazing and unforgettable story of prejudice and justice at the dawn of America's racial awakening.-Dust jacket

Closer to the edge : New York City and the triumph of risk by Joseph Andrew Arena ( )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"Closer to the Edge: New York City and the Triumph of Risk" explores the historical construction of "the culture of risk." The dissertation posits the culture of risk as an alternative to neoliberal frameworks of American society in the contemporary period. The work begins in 1973, with the city already unraveling from structural economic decline alongside racial and class polarization, a graphic example of the failures of mid-century "high-modernist" planning. It then moves to the city's 1975 brush with bankruptcy, which became a starting point for New York's elite to reimagine the city's economic future. Financiers, with the cooperation of political leaders and the city's labor movement, created an urban economy based on the most speculative kinds of deregulated financial capitalism. The city's leadership deliberately risked social disintegration by using funds from public health, safety, and welfare to attract and retain global capital. The dissertation examines the historical impact of these policies on the city's role as a financial center, its real estate market, and on the lives of the very poor. The city that was created by taking these risks radiated its influence outward to the nation as a whole through capital markets, intellectual discourse, cultural production, and new activist movements that arose in the midst of the AIDS epidemic. By 1992, the resulting belief in business/government risk-taking as a social good or as a necessity had become the dominant ethos of both New York City's politics and of the United States as a whole. As recent events such as the 2008 financial crisis have demonstrated, the influence of the culture of risk endures to the present day

Dimensions of racism : proceedings of a workshop to commemorate the end of the United Nations third decade to combat racism and racial discrimination, Paris, 19-20 February 2003 by Workshop to commemorate the end of the United Nations Third Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The United Nations Third Decade to Combat Racism and Racial Discrimination ended in 2003. One of the Decade's educational activities was a workshop that brought together education and training experts, academics, United Nations human rights experts and individuals from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) working on racism and related issues. The purpose of the workshop was to develop educational materials for use by teachers and students on eliminating racial prejudice and fostering tolerance. The workshop, organized by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) in cooperation with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), took place in Paris on 19-20 February 2003. The background papers presented at the workshop analysed racism and racial discrimination in specific contexts, including in education, the workplace, health, migration, contemporary forms of slavery, the media, the criminal justice system, and the experience of double discrimination based on gender and race. Those papers form the basis of the chapters in this book. The aim of the publication is to provide a better understanding, on a cross-cultural basis, of racism, racial discrimination and xenophobia. It examines how these phenomena manifest themselves and are experienced by victims. It explains how racism is currently combated and how it can be prevented. The intention is to generate interest and encourage students in particular to develop ideas on how to fight racism, and to become involved in that fight."-P. iii
