The digital difference : media technology and the theory of communication effects
Neuman, W. Russell
Cambridge, Massachusetts : Harvard University Press, 2016
The propaganda problem -- The problem of precision -- The paradox of profusion -- Pondering polysemy -- Predisposed to polarization -- The politics of pluralism -- Public policy -- Praxis.

"Although the shift from one-way to two-way mass communication - from broadcasting to social networking - represents a revolutionary restructuring, it does not necessarily mean the public is better informed, more culturally or politically polarized, or more engaged in public life. Practices, institutions, and norms are in mid-transition and potentially subject to our individual and collective choice. The book is designed to connect the best of recent scholarship with these pressing policy questions"--Provided by publisher.

The social media revolution : an economic encyclopedia of friending, following, texting, and connecting
Hanson, Jarice, author
Santa Barbara, California : Greenwood, an imprint of ABC-CLIO, LLC, [2016]
Preface -- Introduction -- Timeline -- Historical overview -- Guide to related topics -- The encyclopedia -- Bibliography -- Index.

"Social media shapes the ways in which we communicate, think about friends, and hear about news and current events. It also affects how users think of themselves, their communities, and their place in the world. This book examines the tremendous impact of social media on daily life. • Provides an insightful perspective on the past and future that demonstrates how the technologies of communication serve to create the nexus of social interaction. • Examines the fundamental need and desire of humanity to communicate, which in turn determines what we think of ourselves, how we see the world, and how we make meaning. • Focuses on social media as a powerful tool, not only for communication and entertainment but also for potentially equalizing power and social mobility locally, nationally, and globally. • Considers the financial impact of social media as it challenges legacy media for consumers, users, and audiences."--Amazon

"Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things. Questionnaires are everywhere: we fill them out in doctor's offices and at job interviews, to express ourselves and to advance knowledge, to find love and to kill time. But where did they come from, and why have they proliferated? In Questionnaire, Evan Kindley investigates the history of "the form as form," from the Victorian confession album to the BuzzFeed quiz. In the process, he uncovers surprising connections between disparate fields (literature and science, psychology and business, and journalism and surveillance), and while asking questions about the questions we ask ourselves. Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic"--

Crises in economic and social history : a comparative perspective
edited by A.T. Brown, Andy Burn and Rob Doherty
Woodbridge, Suffolk, UK ; The Boydell Press, 2015
This collection of essays brings together historians examining social and economic crises from the thirteenth century to the twenty-first. Crisis is an almost ubiquitous concept for historians, applicable across (amongst others) the histories of agriculture, disease, finance and trade. Yet there has been little attempt to compare its use as an explanatory tool between these discrete fields of research. This volume breaks down the boundaries between traditional historical time periods and sub-disciplines of history to examine the ways in which past societies have coped with crises, and the role of crisis in generating economic and social change. Should we conceptualise a medieval agrarian or financial crisis differently from their modern counterparts? Were there similarities in how contemporaries responded to famine or outbreaks of disease? How comparable are crises within households, within institutions, or across national and international networks of trade?

Aging in America
edited by Robert L. Scardamalia
Lanham, Maryland : Bernan Press, [2014]
The Baby Boom generation has breached the beginning age of retirement at 65. Today, concerns about the financial stability of Social Security, trends in disability, health care costs, and the supply of caregivers are all driven by the coming explosion in population over the age of 65. The Decennial Census and annual American Community Survey form the basis for this aging portrait. These are critical data sources because they are the only sources that provide comparable and comprehensive statistics for all communities across the nation. Many other survey sources exist that add health care and wellness indicators, but they do not provide the geographic detail coming from the Census Bureau. Aging in America contains information by state, metro area, county, city and congressional district for areas with a population of 65,000 or more.--Publisher description.

Straight expectations : what does it mean to be gay today?
Bindel, Julie
London : Guardian Books, 2014
More than four decades after the start of the gay liberation movement, lesbians and gay men can legally marry, adopt children, and enjoy the same rights and respect as heterosexuals - or can they? Julie Bindel, an out lesbian since 1977, tracks the changes in the gay community in the last 40 years and asks whether fighting for the right to marry has achieved genuine progress, or whether the new legal rights have neutered a once-radical social movement.

The Oxford handbook of transnational feminist movements
edited by Rawwida Baksh and Wendy Harcourt
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, [2015]
"The Oxford Handbook of Transnational Feminist Movements explores the historical, political, economic and social contexts in which transnational feminist movements have emerged and spread, and the contributions they have made to global knowledge, power and social change over the past half century. The publication of the handbook in 2015 marks the fortieth anniversary of the United Nations International Women's Year, the thirtieth anniversary of the Third World Conference on Women held in Nairobi, the twentieth anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action, and the fifteenth anniversaries of the Millennium Development Goals and of UN Security Council Resolution 1325 on 'women, peace and security'. The editors and contributors critically interrogate transnational feminist movements from a broad spectrum of locations in the global South and North: feminist organizations and networks at all levels (local, national, regional, global and 'glocal'); wider civil society organizations and networks; governmental and multilateral agencies; and academic and research institutions, among others. The handbook reflects candidly on what we have learned about transnational feminist movements. What are the different spaces from which transnational feminisms have operated and in what ways? How have they contributed to our understanding of the myriad formal and informal ways in which gendered power relations define and inform everyday life? To what extent have they destabilized or transformed the global hegemonic systems that constitute patriarchy? From a position of fifty years of knowledge production, activism, working with institutions, and critical reflection, the handbook recognizes that transnational feminist movements form a key epistemic community that can inspire and provide leadership in shaping political spaces and institutions at all levels, and transforming international political economy, development and peace processes. The handbook is organized into ten sections, each beginning with an introduction by the editors. The sections explore the main themes that have emerged from transnational feminist movements: knowledge, theory and praxis; organizing for change; body politics, health and well-being; human rights and human security; economic and social justice; citizenship and statebuilding; militarism and religious fundamentalisms; peace movements, UNSCR 1325 and postconflict rebuilding; feminist political ecology; and digital-age transformations and future trajectories." -- Publisher's description

Feminist philosophies of life
edited by Hasana Sharp and Chloë Taylor
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, 2016
"Much of the history of western ethical thought has been composed of debates about the bases of "the good life." It has typically been taken for granted that "the good life" is achievable only by (certain) human beings. Feminists and Continental philosophers have long challenged both the descriptive accuracy and the prescriptive hold of the idea of the human life whose goodness is under discussion. Beyond the normative demands implicit in the idea of the good life, or the properly human life, more and more philosophers are now interrogating the question of life from within a broader frame. Feminist Philosophies of Life signals the importance of distinctively feminist reflections upon matters of shared concern among living beings. For many of the contributors to this volume, it is not enough to expose the tendency of discourses to normalize and exclude differently-abled, racialized, feminized, and gender nonconforming people, although this task remains central. It is also necessary to ask what life is or how life is constituted. What are the conditions under which life on earth is possible? To what extent do we share the struggles and needs of other living beings? And what is it about living bodies that enables them to develop in so-called "social" or "spiritual" ways? How, as feminist philosophers, do we respond to the precarious existences of people experiencing disability, prisoners, fetuses and pregnant women, murdered and missing indigenous women, and of life itself on a planet that is rapidly being impacted by climate change?"--

From Liberal to Labour with women's suffrage : the story of Catherine Marshall
Vellacott, Jo, author
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press ; 2016
"Catherine Marshall was a vital figure in the women's suffrage movement in Britain before the First World War. Using her remarkable political skills on behalf of the major non-militant organization, the National Union of Women's Suffrage Societies (NUWSS), she built close connections with major suffragist politicians, leading some, in all three parties, to consider adopting a measure of women's enfranchisement as a party plank. By 1913 Marshall was uniquely placed as a lobbyist, with inside information and sympathetic listeners in every party. Through her the dynamically re-organized NUWSS brought the women's suffrage issue to the fore of public awareness. It pushed the Labour Party to adopt a strong stand on women's suffrage and raised working-class consciousness, re-awakening a long-dormant demand for full adult enfranchisement. Had the general election due in 1915 taken place, NUWSS financial and organizational support for the Labour Party might well have been substantial enough to influence the final results. These impressive achievements were forgotten by the time Catherine Marshall died in 1961. Even recent research on the period has failed to show the full significance of the issue of women's suffrage, much less Marshall's part in the movement. Jo Vellacott's revealing account of Marshall's political work also includes vivid descriptions of a liberal Victorian childhood, a strangely purposeless young adulthood, and the heady experiences of women who, through the awakening of political consciousness, forged a lifestyle to fit their new aspirations."--

Global gentrifications : uneven development and displacement
edited by Loretta Lees, Hyun Bang Shin and Ernesto Lôpez-Morales
Bristol, UK ; Policy Press, 2015
Under contemporary capitalism the extraction of value from the built environment has escalated, a phenomenon working in tandem with other urban processes to lay the foundations for the exploitative processes of gentrification worldwide. Global Gentrifications critically assesses and tests the meaning and significance of gentrification in places outside the usual suspects of the Global North. Informed by a rich array of case studies from cities in Asia, Latin America, Africa, Southern Europe, and beyond, the book illuminates both the geographical generalities and specificities associated with the uneven process of gentrification globally. Highlighting the intensifying global struggles over urban space, it underlines gentrification as a growing and important battleground in the contemporary world, making the book a vital resource for students and academics as well as policy makers, planners, and community organizations.

The English 'Old Poor Law' was the first national system of tax-funded social welfare in the world. It provided a safety net for hundreds of thousands of paupers at a time of very limited national wealth and productivity. The First Century of Welfare, which focuses on the poor, but developing, county of Lancashire, provides the first major regional study of poverty and its relief in the seventeenth century. Drawing on thousands of individual petitions for poor relief, presented by paupers themselves to magistrates, it peers into the social and economic world of England's marginal people. Taken together, these records present a vivid and sobering picture of the daily lives and struggles of the poor. We can see how their family life, their relations with their kin and their neighbours, and the dictates of contemporary gender norms conditioned their lives. We can also see how they experienced illness and physical and mental disability; and the ways in which real people's lives could be devastated by dearth, trade depression, and the destruction of the Civil Wars. But the picture is not just one of poor folk tossed by the tides of fortune. It is also of agency: about the strategies of economic survival the poor adopted, particularly in the context of a developing industrial economy, of the support they gained from their relatives and neighbours, and of their willingness to engage with England's developing system of social welfare to ensure that they and their families did not go hungry. In this book, an intensely human picture surfaces of what it was like to experience poverty at a time when the seeds of state socail welfare were being planted. -- from back cover.

Female suicide bombings : a critical gender approach
Narozhna, Tanya, 1976-
Toronto ; University of Toronto Press, [2016]
Mapping the framework : key terms and concepts -- The history of modern female suicide bombings : contextualizing acts of violence -- Female suicide bombings : between agential choice and structural determinism -- Gender, power, and violence : exploring the organizations behind female suicide bombings -- Global power, knowledge, and the politics of difference in the representations of female suicide bombings -- Counter-terrorism, gender, and human security.

"As media coverage of terrorism and terroristic acts has increased so too has the discussion about the identities, motives, and gender of the perpetrators. Over the past fifteen years, there have been over 150 reported suicide bombings committed by women around the world. Because of its prominence in media reporting, the phrase "female suicide bomber" has become loaded with gendered notions and assumptions that elicit preconditioned responses in the West. Female Suicide Bombings critically examines and challenges common assumptions of this loaded term. Tanya Narozhna and W. Andy Knight introduce female suicide bombings as a socio-political practice and a product of deeply politicized, gendered representations. Drawing on a combination of feminist and post-colonial approaches as well as terrorism studies literature, the authors seek to transcend ideological divisions in order to enhance our understanding of how gender, power, and academic practices influence our perceptions of female suicide bombings."--

The terror years : from al-Qaeda to the Islamic State
Wright, Lawrence, 1947- author
New York : Alfrred A. Knopf, 2016
"Eleven powerful pieces first published in The New Yorker recall the path terror in the Middle East has taken from a more peaceful time in 1990s Israel to the recent beheadings of reporters by ISIS.With the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Looming Tower, Lawrence Wright became generally acknowledged as one of our major journalists writing on terrorism in the Middle East. This collection draws on several articles he wrote while researching that book as well as many that he's written since, following where and how Al Qaeda and its core cult-like beliefs have morphed and spread. They include: a picture of Saudi Arabia under the control of the religious police; the Syrian film industry, then compliant at the edges but already exuding a feeling of the barely masked fury that erupted into civil war; Israel and Hamas waging war over Gaza. Others continue to look into Al-Qaeda as it forms a master plan for its future, experiences a rebellion from within the organization, and spins off a growing web of terror in the world. The American response is covered in profiles of two FBI agents and a head of the CIA. It ends with the recent devastating capture and beheadings by ISIS of four American journalists and how our government handled the situation"--

Renegade Amish : beard cutting, hate crimes, and the trial of the Bergholz barbers
Kraybill, Donald B
Baltimore, Maryland : Johns Hopkins University Press, [2014]
The attacks -- The clan -- The bishop -- The cult? -- The FBI -- The trial -- The sentencing -- The aftermath.

On the night of September 6, 2011, terror called at the Amish home of the Millers. Answering a late-night knock from what appeared to be an Amish neighbor, Mrs. Miller opened the door to her five estranged adult sons, a daughter, and their spouses. It wasnt́ a friendly visit. Within moments, the men, wearing headlamps, had pulled their frightened father out of bed, pinned him into a chair, and ígnoring his tearful protests sheared his hair and beard, leaving him razor-burned and dripping with blood. The women then turned on Mrs. Miller, yanking her prayer cap from her head and shredding it before cutting off her waist-long hair. About twenty minutes later, the attackers fled into the darkness, taking their parents ́hair as a trophy for their community. Four similar beard-cutting attacks followed, disfiguring nine victims and generating a tsunami of media coverage. While pundits and late-night talk shows made light of the attacks and poked fun at the Amish way of life, FBI investigators gathered evidence about troubling activities in a maverick Amish community near Bergholz, Ohio and the volatile behavior of its leader, Bishop Samuel Mullet.

Understand the weapon, understand the wound : collected writings with some letters of Francis Cornford and afterwords by Richard Baxell and Jane Bernal
Cornford, John, 1915-1936, author
Manchester : FyfieldBooks, 2016
Notes and acknowledgements -- Chronology -- Introduction. Poems : Poems written at school, [1930]-1932 -- Poems written at Cambridge, 1933-1936 -- Poems from Spain, 1936. Essays. Letters. Afterword / Richard Baxell -- Political change in the writings of John Cornford / Jane Bernal -- Notes on the text -- Index of proper names.

This collection of writings from Cornford's thirteenth to his twenty-first year, when he died of wounds received in action, is a revealing autobiography, showing the sources of his political and literary commitments. In this authoritative survey of Cornford's poems, essays, and letters, Jonathan Galassi gives access to material not available elsewhere; his introduction and notes, together with two new afterwords by Jane Bernal and Richard Baxell, situate the work in its political and personal contexts. As Galassi suggests in his introduction, the republication of Cornford's writings eighty years after his death "celebrates the gem-like intensity of one young man's prodigious desire and need to change the world."

Utopia drive : a road trip through America's most radical idea
Reece, Erik, author

(Niagara Falls, Canada).

"For Erik Reece, life, at last, was good: he was newly married, gainfully employed, living in a creekside cabin in his beloved Kentucky woods. It sounded, as he describes it, "like a country song with a happy ending." And yet he was still haunted by a sense that the world--or, more specifically, his country--could be better. He couldn't ignore his conviction that, in fact, the good ol' USA was in the midst of great social, environmental, and political crises--that for the first time in our history, we were being swept into a future that had no future. Where did we--here, in the land of Jeffersonian optimism and better tomorrows--go wrong? Rather than despair, Reece turned to those who had dared to imagine radically different futures for America. What followed was a giant road trip and research adventure through the sites of America's utopian communities, both historical and contemporary, known and unknown, successful and catastrophic. What he uncovered was not just a series of lost histories and broken visionaries but also a continuing and vital but hidden idealistic tradition in American intellectual history. Utopia Drive is an important and definitive reconstruction of that tradition. It is also, perhaps, a new framework to help us find a genuinely sustainable way forward. "--
