"Award-winning journalist Herb Boyd chronicles the fascinating history of Detroit through the lens of the African American experience. Offering an expansive discussion of this iconic city, Black Detroit ranges in subject from Antoine de Lamothe Cadillac's initial vision of what would become a thriving metropolis to the city's glory days as the center of American commerce; from the waves of fugitives traveling on the Underground Railroad to the advent of the People Mover circling downtown; from the creation of the unparalleled sound of Motown to the emergence of Wayne State University as a hotbed of political thought. Boyd combines deep passion and a stunning eye for detail to seamlessly blend personal experience, exhaustive research, and eyewitness accounts collected from some of the city's wisest griots. Black Detroit looks at the influence African Americans have had on various aspects of the city's history, culture, and politics, including the auto industry--both as the cornerstone of the union movement and the majority population on the factory floor--and it reframes the riots sparked by police brutality and housing discrimination from the perspective of the people most impacted by the city's neglectful policies. In the process, the book presents a roll call of the illustrious men and women who have defined and shaped the Motor City, including Malcolm X, Aretha Franklin, Berry Gordy, Fannie Richards, abolitionist William Lambert, and Coleman Young, Detroit's first black mayor. This important book documents how a committed work ethic, a well-developed spirit of resistance, and a deep sense of heritage continue to run strong through Detroit's black community--providing the true engine propelling the city's reemergence as a viable urban center for the twenty-first century."--Jacket.

Citizen Trudeau : an intellectual biography, 1944-1965
Mills, Allen George, 1945- author
Don Mills, Ontario, Canada : Oxford University Press, [2016]
Preface -- Introduction -- A portrait of the activist as a young man -- Trudeau agonistes -- Mounier, Maritain, and Laski: getting an education -- Trudeau's profound moralism: the matter of Quebec -- Church and state -- Socialism and economics -- Trudeau abroad -- Federalism and nationalism -- To the liberal station: Trudeau's surprising terminus -- Afterword -- Notes -- Index.

"Pierre Elliot Trudeau was a man of deep intellect, of strongly held philosophy, and of bold - if not occasionally audacious - personality. He was no high-minded, distant philosopher-ruler however. A consummate pragmatist, Trudeau sought to be a moral man of action. This important work looks his intellectual evolution as a young man, in the years before he entered politics. Beautifully written, this biography also paints a fascinating, colourful and multilayered portrait of Trudeau. Born into a wealthy family, Trudeau's years among then-Jesuits at Brébeuf College in Montreal were formative, among other reasons for what would become his long-term interaction with Catholicism. Following law school at University of Montreal, Trudeau studied at Harvard in the US, at LSE in London, England, and at Sciences Po in Paris. Mills' considers the biggest influences on Trudeau, including Harold Laski, Jacques Maritain, and Emmanuel Mounier. Mills also recounts Trudeau's travels across the world throughout the 1950s, travelling in Europe, the Near and Far East, Egypt and Sudan, the USSR, Pakistan, India, Indonesia, Australia and New Zealand, regions in West Africa, Israel, Vietnam, Persia and Taiwan. A chapter considers Trudeau's evolving thought on Federalism and Nationalism, both internationally and in terms of Quebec and Canada. A chapter on Trudeau's moralism highlights his belief that politics requires individuals of conscience, who have the courage to speak frankly about their beliefs. Mills' biography shows us that understanding Trudeau the thinker is key to understanding Trudeau the politician, whose life was both a practical and a theoretical one. He was a cool political thinker who believed that clear analysis of political questions was essential to good governance."--Publisher's website.

Wright traces continuity and change in five central colonial legacies: authoritarian governance; a rigid social hierarchy based on race, color, and gender; the powerful Roman Catholic Church; economic dependency; and the large landed estate. He shows that the outcomes of debate and contestation over these colonial legacies have been crucial in shaping contemporary political systems, economies, societies, and religious institutions in a richly diverse region. These unifying themes guide the reader through each period.

"Revolutions are a commonly studied but only vaguely understood historical phenomenon. This clear and concise text extends our understanding with a critical narrative analysis of key case studies: the 1910-1920 Mexican Revolution; the 1944-1954 Guatemalan Spring; the 1952-1964 MNR-led revolution in Bolivia; the Cuban Revolution that triumphed in 1959; the 1970-1973 Chilean path to socialism; the leftist Sandinistas in Nicaragua in power from 1979-1990; failed guerrilla movements in Colombia, El Salvador, and Peru; and the Bolivarian Revolution in Venezuela after Hugo Chávez's election in 1998. Marc Becker opens with a theoretical introduction to revolutionary movements, including a definition of what "revolution" means and an examination of factors necessary for a revolution to succeed. He analyzes revolutions through the lens of those who participated and explores the sociopolitical conditions that led to a revolutionary situation, the differing responses to those conditions, and the outcomes of those political changes. Each case study provides an interpretive explanation of the historical context in which each movement emerged, its main goals and achievements, its shortcomings, its outcome, and its legacy. The book concludes with an analysis of how elected leftist governments in the twenty-first century continue to struggle with issues that revolutionaries confronted throughout the twentieth century."--Provided by publisher.

Down the up staircase : three generations of a Harlem family
Haynes, Bruce D., 1960- author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2017]
Mad money -- Not alms but opportunity -- New negroes -- Soul dollars -- Stepping out -- Do for yourself -- Free fall -- Moving on down -- Keep on keepin' on.

"Down the Up Staircase tells the history of three generations of a black middle-class family against the backdrop of the three-story brownstone at 411 Convent Avenue in the Sugar Hill section of Harlem. The home once belonged to its patriarch, George Edmund Haynes, a migrant from Pine Bluff, Arkansas, who went on to become the first African American to earn a PhD at Columbia University and found the National Urban League. He was the first prominent black economist in the country, the first to predict the great sweeping migration of blacks from the rural South to the urban North, a power broker of the Harlem Renaissance, and the first black to serve in a federal sub-cabinet post, where he mobilized the new Black migrants for the war effort. His wife, Elizabeth Ross Haynes, was a noted children's author of the period and a prominent social scientist. Yet these early advances and gains provided little anchor to the succeeding generations. Their son had dreamed of becoming an engineer but spent his entire career as a parole officer in the Bronx. Their eldest grandson graduated from the prestigious Horace Mann High School but spent much of his adult life in and out of drug rehabilitation clinics, psychiatric hospitals, and the streets. Their second grandson was slain on the streets of the Bronx during his last semester of college, at age twenty-three. Only the youngest grandson--the book's author, Bruce Haynes--was able to build on the gains of his forefathers. Haynes brings sociological insight to a familiar American tale, one where the notion of social mobility and black middle class is a tenuous term"--Provided by publisher.

Cattle kingdom : the hidden history of the cowboy West
Knowlton, Christopher, author
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2017
The demise of the bison -- Cattle for cash -- Birth of the cattle town -- Cattle-town high jinks -- Lighting the fuse -- Cowboy aristocrats -- From stockyard to steakhouse -- The rise of Cheyenne -- Barbed wire: The devil's rope -- Frewen's castle -- The nature crusader -- Teddy Blue and the necktie socials -- Mortal ruin -- Poker on joint-stock principles -- The big die-up -- The fall of Cheyenne -- The rustler problem -- Nate Champion and the Johnson County War -- The cowboy president -- The closing of the range -- Failed second acts -- Myths of the Old West -- Afterword: "Unhorsed for good."

The open-range cattle era lasted barely a quarter century, but it left America irrevocably changed. These few decades following the Civil War brought America its greatest boom-and-bust cycle until the Depression, the invention of the assembly line, and the dawn of the conservation movement. It inspired legends, such as that icon of rugged individualism, the cowboy. Yet this extraordinary time and its import have remained unexamined for decades. Cattle Kingdom reveals the truth of how the West rose and fell, and how its legacy defines us today. The tale takes us from dust-choked cattle drives to the unlikely splendors of boomtowns like Abilene, Kansas, and Cheyenne, Wyoming. We venture from the Texas Panhandle to the Dakota Badlands to the Chicago stockyards. We meet a diverse array of players -- from the expert cowboy Teddy Blue to the failed rancher and future president Teddy Roosevelt. Knowlton shows us how they and others like them could achieve so many outsized feats: killing millions of bison in a decade, building the first opera house on the open range, driving cattle by the thousands, and much more.

Development arrested : the blues and plantation power in the Mississippi Delta
Woods, Clyde Adrian, author
London : Verso, 2017
Poem / by Sterling D. Plumpp -- Introduction / by Ruth Wilson Gilmore -- 1. What Happens to a Dream Arrested? -- 2. The Blues Tradition of Explanation -- 3. The Social-Spatial Construction of the Mississippi Delta -- 4. The Shotgun Policy and the Birth of the Blues -- 5. Segregation, Peonage, and the Blues Ascension -- 6. The Enclosure Movement -- 7. The Green Revolution -- 8. Poor People and the Freedom Blues -- 9. The Crises of Tchula, Tunica, and Delta Pride -- 10. Writing the Regional Future -- 11. The Blues Reconstruction.

"Development Arrested is a major reinterpretation of the 200-year-old conflict between African American workers and the planters of the Mississippi Delta. The book measures the impact of the plantation system on those who suffered its depredations firsthand, while tracing the decline and resurrection of plantation ideology in national public policy debate. Despite countless defeats under the planter regime, African Americans in the Delta continued to push forward their agenda for social and economic justice. Throughout this remarkably interdisciplinary book, ranging across fields as diverse as rural studies, musicology, development studies, and anthropology, Woods demonstrates the role of music--including jazz, rock and roll, soul, rap and, above all, the blues--in sustaining a radical vision of social change." --

The best land under heaven : the Donner Party in the age of Manifest Destiny
Wallis, Michael, 1945- author
New York : Liveright Publishing Corporation, a division of W.W. Norton & Company, [2017]

In the eerily warm spring of 1846, George Donner placed this advertisement in a local newspaper as he and a restless caravan prepared for what they hoped would be the most rewarding journey of a lifetime. But in eagerly pursuing what would a century later become known as the "American dream," this optimistic-yet-motley crew of emigrants was met with a chilling nightmare; in the following months, their jingoistic excitement would be replaced by desperate cries for help that would fall silent in the deadly snow-covered mountains of the Sierra Nevada. We know these early pioneers as the Donner Party, a name that has elicited horror since the late 1840s. Now, historian Michael Wallis continues his life's work of parsing fact from fiction to tell the true story of one of the most embroidered sagas in Western history.

Les Cayes et le Bolivarisme -- Simon Bolivar aux Cayes en 1815-1816 -- Le témoignage de Cinna Marion -- L'apport de Gilette Saurat -- La version de Gerhard Masur -- Jean Joseph Ewald Percy.

A collaboration between the historian Michel Soukar and the musical group led by André Maxime Percy, this book and CD tell the story of Simon Bolivar's welcome and support in 1815/1816 by the Haitian city of Cayes. The folk songs included on the CD were originally collected by Maxime Percy's late father, Ewald Percy, a native of Camp-Perrin, and are now reinterpreted by Maxime Percy and his group Jardin Folklorique. The book includes a history of Bolivar's relationship with Cayes, as well as an interview with Soukar and Ewald Percy, and the lyrics to some of the folk songs collected by the latter.

De la crónica al icono : la fotografía de la Revolución mexicana en la prensa ilustrada capitalina (1910-1940)
Gautreau, Marion, author
México, D.F. : Instituto Nacional de Antropología e Historia, 2016
Prólogo. Una visualidad comprometida -- Introducción -- 1. Nuevas miradas, nuevas imágenes: fotógrafos y fotografía de prensa -- 2. La prensa ilustrada: un vector de difusión que se transforma -- 3. Del acontecimiento al símbolo: elecciones para la memoria -- 4. La génesis de las figuras heroicas -- Conclusión.

Photographs of the Mexican Revolution that continue to circulate widely today are not very numerous and little represent the reality and complexity of the armed conflict. The objective of this text is to help understand the process of decanting of the original corpus of photographs of the Mexican Revolution through the study of one of the supports for the dissemination of this iconography: the illustrated press. From a comparative analysis of photographs of the Revolution published during the armed conflict (1910-1920) and during the Post-Revolution (1920-1940), the author tries to explain the gradual disappearance of some types of images and at the same time, the transformation of very specific photos in. The book highlights the role of the illustrated press in the consolidation and the post-revolutionary ideology through a selection of a symbolic iconography that allows the public certain events and key figures of the revolution.

Masterless men : poor whites and slavery in the antebellum South
Merritt, Keri Leigh, 1980- author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2017
Introduction: The second degree of slavery -- 1. The Southern origins of the Homestead Act -- 2. The demoralization of labor -- 3. Masterless (and militant) white workers -- 4. Everyday life : material realities -- 5. Literacy, education, and disfranchisement -- 6. Vagrancy, alcohol, and crime -- 7. Poverty and punishment -- 8. Race, Republicans, and vigilante violence -- 9. Class crisis and the Civil War -- Conclusion: A duel emancipation -- Appendix: Numbers, percentages, and the census.

"Analyzing land policy, labor, and legal history, Keri Leigh Merritt reveals what happens to excess workers when a capitalist system is predicated on slave labor. With the rising global demand for cotton--and thus, slaves--in the 1840s and 1850s, the need for white laborers in the American South was drastically reduced, creating a large underclass who were unemployed or underemployed. These poor whites could not compete--for jobs or living wages--with profitable slave labor. Though impoverished whites were never subjected to the daily violence and degrading humiliations of racial slavery, they did suffer tangible socio-economic consequences as a result of living in a slave society. Merritt examines how these 'masterless' men and women threatened the existing Southern hierarchy and ultimately helped push Southern slaveholders toward secession and civil war"--
