History Engelsk Historie

TILBUD
Since its original publication, Andrew Rolle's classic work has been enjoyed by more than 100,000 persons, students and general readers alike. Like its predecessors, the seventh edition of California: A History recounts the state's history from its origins to the present in an engaging manner, while seeking a balance between conflicting viewpoints. Today especially, Californians face severe implications of the state's overwhelming diversity and continuing population explosion. This seventh edition incorporates these dramatic new developments in a historical context, pondering implications for the future. Likewise, those sections of the book devoted to women, the environment, immigration (legal and illegal), crime, sports, energy, and transportation have all been expanded. The most obvious change to this edition is the addition of Arthur Verge as coauthor, and loyal users will be delighted to see the addition of many new photographs that also help keep our "classic" text vibrant and current.

Cheap amusements - Working Women and Leisure in Turn-of-the-Century New York

Peiss, Kathy

History Engelsk Historie

What did young, independent women do for fun and how did they pay their way into New York City's turn-of-the-century pleasure places? Cheap Amusements is a fascinating discussion of young working women whose meager wages often fell short of bare subsistence and rarely allowed for entertainment expenses.
Kathy Peiss follows working women into saloons, dance halls, Coney Island amusement parks, social clubs, and nickelodeons to explore the culture of these young women between 1880 and 1920 as expressed in leisure activities. By examining the rituals and styles they adopted and placing that culture in the larger context of urban working-class life, she offers us a complex picture of the dynamics shaping a working woman's experience and consciousness at the turn-of-the-century. Not only does her analysis lead us to new insights into working-class culture, changing social relations between single men and women, and urban courtship, but it also gives us a fuller understanding of the cultural transformations that gave rise to the commercialization of leisure.
The early twentieth century witnessed the emergence of "heterosocial companionship" as a dominant ideology of gender, affirming mixed-sex patterns of social interaction, in contrast to the nineteenth century's segregated spheres. Cheap Amusements argues that a crucial part of the "reorientation of American culture" originated from below, specifically in the subculture of working women to be found in urban dance halls and amusement resorts.

History Engelsk Historie

TILBUD
The title of Peter Carroll's book, "It Seemed Like Nothing Happened", ironically reveals the message. The decade of the '70s was far from our common impression of the calm following the turbulent '60s. In this unique, comprehensive history of America during the 1970s, we learn about international developments: the war in Cambodia, Nixon's trip to China, the oil embargo and resulting gas shortage, the Mayaguez incident, the Camp David accords, the Iranian capture of the US embassy and the taking of hostages, and the ill-fated rescue mission.
All this signaled a decline in American power and influence. We also learn about domestic politics: Kent State, the Pentagon Papers, Haynsworth and Carswell, the Eagleton affair, the rise of ticket splitting, inflation, recession, unemployment, Watergate, Agnew's resignation, the Saturday night massacre, Nixon's resignation, the pardon for draft evaders, Propostion 13, the politicization of organized religion, the conservative shift in the Democratic Party, and the Reagan electoral landslide.

Latin America since 1780 - 2nd. Ed.

Fowler, Will

270 DKK

Historia Spansk Historie

Although largely sharing a common past and language, the countries in Latin America remain distinct entities with their own identities. Latin America since 1780 provides a continental-based historical narrative which stresses the common themes between countries like Mexico in North America to Argentina in the Southern Cone, while at the same time highlighting their specific national contexts. This book focuses on key events such as the Mexican--American War, the Cuban Revolution, and the overthrow of Salvador Allende's government, as well as providing short inserts on the main political protagonists such as Simon Bolivar, Getulio Vargas and the Subcomandante Marcos.
This new edition has been fully updated to include recent events and trends including Hugo Chavez's 'Bolivarian Revolution' in Venezuela, Evo Morales' electoral victory in Bolivia, and the so-called Pink Tide that has resulted in the emergence of a variety of socialist-leaning governments in the region. At the same time, the book discusses Latin America's cultural diversity, paying particular attention to the response of writers and film makers to the historical contexts covered in the book. A range of pedagogical devices and a lively prose style makes this book the ideal introduction to Latin American history.
Written in an accessible style and assuming no prior knowledge, the books in this series address the specific needs of students on language courses, as well as anyone with an interest in modern history. Approaching the study of history via contemporary politics and society, each book offers a clear historical narrative and sets the country or region concerned in the context of the wider world.

Nightmare in Red: McCarthy Era in Perspective

Fried, Richard M.
Bog

50 DKK
På lager
History Engelsk Historie

TILBUD
This is a well-researched, and frequently entertaining, account of the rise and fall of the House Committee on Un-American activities. Fried describes the growth of the kind of paranoid and xenophobic anti-communism which characterized the HUAC and traces its origins from the New Deal to the post-war periods. Along the way we meet important actors in the Red-baiting drama, including Presidents Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, the young Richard Nixon, Alger Hiss, the Rosenbergs, the Hollywood Ten, and, of course, Wisconsin Senator Joseph McCarthy.
Fried, however, also documents the more sweeping and less public effects of McCarthyism on thousands of people, from teachers and lawyers to washroom attendants forced to take loyalty tests. As Fried shows, these 'insignificant' stories are perhaps the strongest testament to the social and political climate which terrorized many ordinary citizens during the McCarthy years.

Solving Tough Problems

Miscellanous Engelsk Historie

TILBUD
Adam Kahane spent years working in the world's hotspots, and came away with a new understanding of how to resolve conflict in a way that seems reasonable - and doable - to all parties. The result is Solving Tough Problems. Written in a relaxed, persuasive style, this is not a "how-to" book with glib answers, but rather, a very personal story of the author's progress from a young "expert" convinced of the need to provide cold, "correct" answers to an effective facilitator of positive change - by learning how to create environments that enable new ideas and creative solutions to emerge.
The book explores the connection between individual learning and institutional change, and how leaders can move beyond politeness and formal statements, beyond routine debate and defensiveness, toward deeper and more productive dialogue. Both tough and inspiring, the book explores models, technologies, and examples that foster and facilitate "dialogues of the heart."

The industrial revolution in nineteenth-century New England, in the words of the workers. The Mill Women of Lowell, Massachusetts -- the first female industrial wage earners in the United States -- were a new social and economic phenomenon in American society. In the 1830s and 1840s, drawn by the highest wages offered to female employees anywhere in America, they sought and found independence and opportunity in the country's first planned industrial community.
Even after long work hours, the women found time and energy to write about their lives and aspirations. From their own literary magazine, the Lowell Offering, here are their letters, stories, essays, and sketches.

In tackling America's worst depression the New Deal brought the federal government into unprecedented contact with most Americans and shaped the political economy of the contemporary United States. This major new study incorporates the results of many recent case studies of the New Deal and provides a detailed assessment of the impact of the depression and New Deal programmes on businessmen, industrial workers, farmers and the unemployed. In his thematic analysis of the implementation of particular programmes, rather than in a narrative of policymaking, Dr Badger explains the political and ideological constraints which limited the changes wrought by the New Deal.

The Paradox of a Global USA

History Engelsk Historie

TILBUD
"The Paradox of a Global USA" describes the vexed relationship between the United States and globalization. On the one hand, the US has vociferously promoted modernization and open markets, both central components of the process of globalization. On the other hand, it appears to be resolutely determined not to live within an institutional framework of globalized authority.
As the world's only superpower, the United States is often perceived as championing its own narrow national sovereignty - for example, by opposing the Kyoto Protocol and the International Criminal Court, and by taking action in Iraq outside the auspices of the UN. The book treats the paradox of American exceptionalism and globalization as a "local" happening within the broader process of globalization. These essays analyze the ways in which the USA has both played a role in, and reacted against, emerging present-day globalization.
Examples are drawn from the fields of history, political science, cultural studies, and economics, making this collection one of the very few to link together so diverse a group of authors and approaches to the subject of a global USA.
