The new worlds of Thomas Robert Malthus : rereading the Principle of population
Bashford, Alison, 1963- author
Princeton : Princeton University Press, 
This book is a sweeping global and intellectual history that radically recasts our understanding of Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population, the most famous book on population ever written or ever likely to be. Malthus's Essay is also persistently misunderstood. First published anonymously in 1798, the Essay systematically argues that population growth tends to outpace its means of subsistence unless kept in check by factors such as disease, famine, or war, or else by lowering the birth rate through such means as sexual abstinence. Challenging the widely held notion that Malthus's Essay was a product of the British and European context in which it was written, Alison Bashford and Joyce Chaplin demonstrate that it was the new world, as well as the old, that fundamentally shaped Malthus's ideas.

Reducing response burden in the American Community Survey : proceedings of a workshop
Plewes, Thomas J., rapporteur
Washington, DC : The National Academies Press, 
Introduction: Understanding Response Burden -- Approaches to Reducing Response Burden -- Improving Response by Building Respondent Support -- Using Administrative Records to Reduce Response Burden -- Using Improved Sampling and Other Methods to Reduce Response Burden -- Tailoring Collection of Information from Group Quarters -- Future Directions -- Appendix A. Workshop Agenda -- Appendix B. Biographical Sketches of Steering Committee Members and Presenters.
In recent years, the American Community Survey (ACS) - a mandatory household survey that replaced the supplementary "long form" of the census - has seen an increase in nonresponse and criticism for invasion of privacy and excessive burden. As part of the U.S. Census Bureau's continual efforts to improve the Survey, this workshop was called to investigate response burden, focusing on four main topics: matrix sampling to reduce the number of individuals that various questions are posed to; direct substitution of information from administrative records, eliminating some questions; having a separate, reduced-size questionnaire that eliminates unreasonable questions for respondents living in group quarters; and a communication and education strategy to increase cooperation with the request to participate.

Popkin, Susan J., author
Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield, 
Transforming public housing, changing residents' lives -- Transforming the CHA -- Better housing, safer neighborhoods? -- The hard to house -- Reaching the next generation -- No simple solutions.
"In [this book], Sue Popkin tells the story of how an ambitiousand riskysocial experiment affected the lives of the people it was ultimately intended to benefit: the residents who had suffered through the worst days of crime, decay, and rampant mismanagement of the Chicago Housing Authority (CHA), and now had to face losing the only home many of them had known. The stories Popkin tells in this book offer important lessons not only for Chicago, but for the many other American cities still grappling with the legacy of racial segregation and failed federal housing policies, making this book a vital resource for city planners and managers, urban development professionals, and anti-poverty activists."--

Banished to the great northern wilderness : political exile and re-education in Mao's China
Wang, Ning, 1964- author
Vancouver, BC : UBC Press, 
The anti-rightist campaign and political labelling -- Beijing rightists on the army farms of Beidahuang -- Political offenders in Xingkaihu labour camp -- Life and death in Beidahuang -- Inner turmoil and internecine strife among political exiles -- End without end.
"Wang examines the ways in which the state sought to re-educate the intellectuals at army farms and labour camps, and the strategies the exiles used to deal with camp officials and improve their chances of survival. While banished intellectuals were victims of the campaign, some also became perpetrators of injustice themselves who betrayed their friends and comrades. Isolated in a desolate northern borderland and subject to physical and psychological abuse, the exiles often denounced each other and, for self-preservation, declared allegiance to the state. Including interviews with former "rightists" and even a camp guard, Banished to the Great Northern Wilderness shines a bright light on the exile communities, social conflicts, and history of the early PRC."--

A New Deal for China's workers?
Estlund, Cynthia, author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 
Introduction -- The rise of China, and of labor protest, in the reform era -- Who speaks for China's workers? : the ACFTU and labor NGOs -- How did the New Deal resolve the American "labor question"? : bringing a comparative lens in focus -- Can China regulate its way out of labor unrest? : rising labor standards and the enforcement gap -- Can China secure labor peace without independent unions? : strikes and collective bargaining with Chinese characteristics -- What does democracy look like in China? : reforming grassroots union elections -- Will workers have a voice in the "socialist market economy"? : the curious revival of the worker congress system -- Conclusion.
This book takes a comparative look at China's labor pains and the reforms taking shape in their wake. Some recent developments in China - rising strike levels, a surge of union organizing, and a raft of reforms - seem to echo the American New Deal experience. But even as China's leaders hope to replicate the prosperity and stability that flowed from the New Deal labor reforms, they are irrevocably opposed to the independent trade unions that were the central actors in both spurring and carrying out those reforms. In China the specter of an independent labor movement both drives and constrains every facet of China's labor policy, both its reforms and its use of repression. If China's workers get their New Deal, it will be a New Deal with "Chinese characteristics," very unlike what workers in the West achieved in the mid-20th century.--

The refusal of work : the theory and practice of resistance to work
Frayne, David, author
London : Zed Books, 2015
Introduction : the work dogma -- A provocation -- Working pains -- The colonising power of work -- The stronghold of work -- The breaking point -- Alternative pleasures -- Half a person -- From escapism to autonomy.
"Paid work is absolutely central to the culture and politics of capitalist societies, yet today's work centered world is becoming increasingly hostile to the human need for autonomy, spontaneity and community. The grim reality of a society in which some are overworked, whilst others are condemned to intermittent work and unemployment, is progressively more difficult to tolerate. In this thought provoking book, David Frayne questions the central place of work in mainstream political visions of the future, laying bare the ways in which economic demands colonise our lives and priorities. Drawing on his original research into the lives of people who are actively resisting nine-to-five employment, Frayne asks what motivates these people to disconnect from work, whether or not their resistance is futile, and whether they might have the capaciity to inspire an alternative form of development, based on a reduction and social redistribution of work. A crucial dissection of the work-centred nature of modern society and emerging resistance to it, 'The Refusal of Work' is a bold call for a more humane and sustainable vision of social progress"--Page four of cover.

Coxey's crusade for jobs : unemployment in the Gilded Age
Prout, Jerry, author
Dekalb : NIU Press, 
"In the depths of a depression in 1894, a highly successful Gilded Age businessman named Jacob Coxey led a group of jobless men on a march from his hometown of Massillon, Ohio, to the steps of the nation's Capitol. Though a financial panic and the resulting widespread business failures caused millions of Americans to be without work at the time, the word unemployment was rarely used and generally misunderstood. In an era that worshipped the self-reliant individual who triumphed in a laissez-faire market, the out-of-work "tramp" was disparaged as weak or flawed, and undeserving of assistance. Private charities were unable to meet the needs of the jobless, and only a few communities experimented with public works programs. Despite these limitations, Coxey conceived a plan to put millions back to work building a nationwide system of roads and drew attention to his idea with the march to Washington. In Coxey's Crusade for Jobs, Jerry Prout recounts Coxey's story and adds depth and context by focusing on the reporters who were embedded in the march. Their fascinating depictions of life on the road occupied the headlines and front pages of America's newspapers for more than a month, turning the spectacle into a serialized drama. These accounts humanized the idea of unemployment and helped Americans realize that in a new industrial economy, unemployment was not going away and the unemployed deserved attention. This unique study will appeal to scholars and students interested in the Gilded Age and US and labor history"--

Behind the wireless : a history of early women at the BBC

London : Palgrave Macmillan, an imprint published by Springer Nature, 
Introduction -- 1. 'Growing like a young giant' : the BBC as a place to work -- 2. 'Women who oil the wheels' : waged women at the BBC -- 3. 'Only an exceptional woman' : married women at the BBC -- 4. 'New and important careers' : salaried women at the BBC -- 5. 'Women who rule at the BBC' : four elite women -- 6. 'When they have their cup of tea' : making programmes for women -- 7. 'You feel their personal touch' : women broadcasters -- 8. Conclusion -- Epilogue : a brief encounter with 90 further years.
Behind the wireless tells the story of women at the BBC in the 1920s and 30s. Broadcasting was brand new in Britain and the BBC developed without many of the overt discriminatory practices commonplace at the time. Women were employed at all levels, except the very top, for instance as secretaries, documentary makers, advertising representatives, and librarians. Three women held Director level posts, Hilda Matheson (Director of Talks), Mary Somerville (Director of School Broadcasting), and Isa Benzie (Foreign Director). Women also produced the programmes aimed at female listeners and brought women broadcasters to the microphone. There was an ethos of equality and the chance to rise through the ranks from accounts clerk to accompanist. But lurking behind the façade of modernity were hidden inequalities in recruitment, pay, and promotion and in 1932 a marriage bar was introduced. Kate Murphy examines how and why the interwar BBC created new opportunities for women.

Carlisle looks at conduct and commerce at sea from the earliest days of the country, when battles at sea were fought over honor and the flag, to the current American-owned merchant fleet sailing under flags of convenience via foreign registries. Carlisle examines the world-wide use, legality, and continued acceptance of this practice, as well as measures to off-set its ill effects. Rough Waters concludes with a look at how the practice of foreign registry shapes present-day commerce and labor relations"--

"The book uncovers the truth about the retail shopper and rips away the myths and mistakes that lead retailers to miss their greatest opportunities. Sorensen analyzes consumer behavior--how shoppers make buying decisions as they move through supermarkets and other retail stores--and presents powerful, tested strategies for designing more effective stores, improving merchandising, and driving double-digit sales increases. He identifies simple interventions that can have dramatic sales effects, and shows why many common strategies simply don't work. You'll learn how to appeal to the 'quick trip' shopper; make the most of all three 'moments of truth'; understand consumers' powerful in-store migration patterns; improve collaboration between manufacturers and retailers; learn the lessons of Stew Leonard's and other innovators; and much more. Then, Sorensen presents revealing interviews with several leading in-store retail experts, including crucial insights on using technology and retailing to multicultural communities."--Provided by publisher.

Liar's poker : rising through the wreckage on Wall Street
New York : W.W. Norton & Company, 
Liar's poker -- Never mention money -- Learning to love your corporate culture -- Adult education -- A brotherhood of hoods -- The fat men and their marvelous money machine -- The Salomon diet -- From geek to man -- The art of war -- How can we make you happier? -- When bad things happen to rich people -- Epilogue -- Afterword: Liar's poker at twenty-five.
Before there was Flash Boys and The Big Short, there was Liar's Poker. A knowing and unnervingly talented debut, this insider s account of 1980s Wall Street excess transformed Michael Lewis from a disillusioned bond salesman to the best-selling literary icon he is today. Together, the three books cover thirty years of endemic global corruption perhaps the defining problem of our age which has never been so hilariously skewered as in Liar's Poker, now in a twenty-fifth-anniversary edition with a new afterword by the author. It was wonderful to be young and working on Wall Street in the 1980s: never before had so many twenty-four-year-olds made so much money in so little time. After you learned the trick of it, all you had to do was pick up the phone and the money poured in your lap. This wickedly funny book endures as the best record we have of those heady, frenzied years. In it Lewis describes his own rake s progress through a powerful investment bank. From an unlikely beginning (art history at Princeton?) he rose in two short years from Salomon Brothers trainee to Geek (the lowest form of life on the trading floor) to Big Swinging Dick, the most dangerous beast in the jungle, a bond salesman who could turn over millions of dollars' worth of doubtful bonds with just one call. As he has continued to do for a quarter century, Michael Lewis here shows us how things really worked on Wall Street. In the Salomon training program a roomful of aspirants is stunned speechless by the vitriolic profanity of the Human Piranha; out on the trading floor, bond traders throw telephones at the heads of underlings and Salomon chairmen Gutfreund challenges his chief trader to a hand of liar s poker for one million dollars.
