Imagining Iran : Orientalism and the construction of security development in American foreign policy
Whooley, Jonathan, 1982- author
New York, NY : Peter Lang Publishing, Inc., 
Merging History and Security -- Foreign Policy and Ideational Construction within the Johnson Administration -- Foreign Policy and Ideational Construction within the Nixon Administration -- Foreign Policy and Ideational Construction within the Ford Administration -- Foreign Policy and Ideational Construction within the Carter Administration -- Foreign Policy and Ideational Construction within the Reagan Administration -- Conclusion : the "Good Oriental" and American Foreign Policy Toward Iran.
This book constructs and assembles American foreign policy through the use of Critical Security Studies discourse analysis and Orientalist descriptions of key actors within the Presidential administrations of Lyndon Baines Johnson through Ronald Reagan (1965-1989). The shah of Iran, Reza Pahlavi, and Iran as a nation served as a Orientalist construction for these administrations. In a sense, the shah was the 'good Oriental' : he modernized, he secularized, he kept his people pliable, if not free, and was in general sensitive and willing to take on the foreign policy goals of the United States. This book is a vital read for those that are interested in learning about how foreign policy making is conducted, how theories directly affect the process of foreign policy making, and finally, it directly addresses the questions many readers have about how the shah and Iran served US interests and the larger question of why the US uses autocratic proxies to pursue its nominally human rights and democracy-based goals. Students of foreign policy, Middle East studies, Critical Security Studies, and Iran experts alike can benefit from a historical deep dive on policy making. The internal conversations, diary entries, and previously classified documents and briefings, tell the story of how the US imagined Iran and why that ideational construction proved to be such a dominant and pernicious image for 26 years, the reverberations of which are still felt today in our modern conception of what Iran is and what Iranians can do through the lens of American foreign policy.

Young Washington : how wilderness and war forged America's founding father
Stark, Peter, 1954- author
New York, NY : Ecco, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, 
A new, brash, and unexpected view of the president we thought we knew, from the bestselling author of Astoria. Two decades before he led America to independence, George Washington was a flailing young soldier serving the British Empire in the vast wilderness of the Ohio Valley. Naive and self-absorbed, the twenty-two-year-old officer accidentally ignited the French and Indian War--a conflict that opened colonists to the possibility of an American Revolution. With powerful narrative drive and vivid writing, Young Washington recounts the wilderness trials, controversial battles, and emotional entanglements that transformed Washington from a temperamental striver into a mature leader. Enduring terrifying summer storms and subzero winters imparted resilience and self-reliance, helping prepare him for what he would one day face at Valley Forge. Leading the Virginia troops into battle taught him to set aside his own relentless ambitions and stand in solidarity with those who looked to him for leadership. Negotiating military strategy with British and colonial allies honed his diplomatic skills. And thwarted in his obsessive, youthful love for one woman, he grew to cultivate deeper, enduring relationships. By weaving together Washington's harrowing wilderness adventures and a broader historical context, Young Washington offers new insights into the dramatic years that shaped the man who shaped a nation.

How to be less stupid about race : on racism, White supremacy, and the racial divide
Fleming, Crystal Marie, 1981- author
Boston, Massachusetts : Beacon Press, 
Introduction: The origins of racial stupidity -- The idiot's guide to critical race theory -- Listen to Black women -- On racial stupidity in the Obama era -- Trump country -- Fake racial news -- Interracial love 101 -- Becoming racially literate.
"How to Be Less Stupid About Race is your essential guide to breaking through the half-truths and ridiculous misconceptions that have thoroughly corrupted the way race is represented in the classroom, pop culture, media, and politics. Centuries after our nation was founded on genocide, settler colonialism, and slavery, many Americans are kinda-sorta-maybe waking up to the reality that our racial politics are (still) garbage. But in the midst of this reckoning, widespread denial and misunderstandings about race persist, even as white supremacy and racial injustice are more visible than ever before. Combining no-holds-barred social critique, humorous personal anecdotes, and analysis of the latest interdisciplinary scholarship on systemic racism, sociologist Crystal M. Fleming provides a fresh, accessible, and irreverent take on everything that's wrong with our "national conversation about race." Drawing upon critical race theory, as well as her own experiences as a queer black millennial college professor and researcher, Fleming unveils how systemic racism exposes us all to racial ignorance--and provides a road map for transforming our knowledge into concrete social change. Searing, sobering, and urgently needed, How to Be Less Stupid About Race is a truth bomb and call to action for everyone who wants to challenge white supremacy and intersectional oppression. If you like Issa Rae, Justin Simien, Angela Davis, and Morgan Jerkins, then this deeply relevant, bold, and incisive book is for you."--

Latinx : the new force in American politics and culture
Morales, Ed, 1956- author
London ; Verso, 2018
The Spanish triangle -- Mestizaje vs. the hypo-American dream -- The second conquista: mestizaje on the down-low -- Raza interrupted: new hybrid nationalism -- Border thinking 101: can la raza speak? -- Our raza, ourselves: a racial reenvisioning of twenty-first-century latinx -- Towards a new raza politics: class awareness and hemispheric vision -- Media, marketing and the invisible soul of latinidad -- The Latinx urban space identity -- Dismantling the master's house: the Latinx imaginary and neoliberal multiculturalism.
"The Latinx revolution in US culture, society, and politics "Latinx" (pronounced "La-teen-ex") is the gender-neutral term that covers the largest racial minority in the United States, 17 percent of the country. This is the fastest-growing sector of American society, containing the most immigrants. It is the poorest ethnic group in the country, whose political empowerment is altering the balance of forces in a growing number of states. And yet, Latins barely figure in America's racial conversation--the US census does not even have a category for "Latino." In this groundbreaking discussion, Ed Morales explains how Latin political identities are tied to a long Latin American history of mestizaje, translatable as "mixedness" or "hybridity", and that this border thinking is both a key to understanding bilingual, bicultural Latin cultures and politics and a challenge to America's infamously black/white racial regime. This searching and long-overdue exploration of a crucial development in American life updates Cornel West's bestselling Race Matters with a Latin inflection"--

Brunstetter.
"The American imagination still exalts the "Founding Fathers" as the prime movers of the Revolution, and the War of Independence has become the stuff of legend. But America is not simply the invention of great men or the outcome of an inevitable political or social movement. The nation was the product of a hard, bloody, and destructive war. Justifying Revolution explores how the American Revolution's opposing sides wrestled with thorny moral and legal questions. How could revolutionaries justify provoking a civil war, how should their opponents subdue the uprising, and how did military commanders restrain the ensuing violence? Drawing from a variety of disciplines and specialties, the authors assembled here examine the Revolutionary War in terms of just war theory: jus ad bellum, jus in bello, and jus post bellum--right or justice in going to, conducting, and concluding war. The chapters situate the Revolution in the context of early modern international relations, moral philosophy, military ethics, jurisprudence, and theology. The authors invite readers to reconsider the war with an eye to the justice and legality of entering armed conflict; the choices made by officers and soldiers in combat; and attempts to arrive at defensible terms of peace. Together, the contributions form the first sustained exploration of Americans' and Britons' use of just war theory as they battled over American independence. Justifying Revolution raises important questions about the political, legal, military, religious, philosophical, and diplomatic ramifications of eighteenth-century warfare--questions essential for understanding America's origins.--

The writing team -- Donna Coltharp and Billy Ennis, El Paso, Texas -- Election day -- Samples, 2016. Vicki Shearer, Renton, Washington -- Obama in jeans -- Samples, 2016-2017 -- Epilogue.
"Every evening for 8 years, at his request, President Obama received a binder containing ten handpicked letters from ordinary American citizens--the unfiltered voice of a nation--from his Office of Presidential Correspondence. He was the first President to save constituent mail, and this is the story of how those letters affected not only the President and his policies, but also the deeply committed people who were tasked with opening the millions of pleas, rants, thank yous, and apologies that landed in the White House mailroom. Based on the popular New York Times article, To Obama, Laskas now interviews the letter writers themselves and the White House staff who sifted through the powerful, moving, and incredibly intimate narrative of America during the Obama years emerges: There is Kelli, who saw her grandfathers finally marry--legally--after 35 years together; Bill, a lifelong Republican whose attitude toward immigration reform was transformed when he met a boy escaping M-16 gang leaders in El Salvador; Heba, a Syrian refugee who wants to forget the day the tanks rolled into her village; Marjorie, who grappled with disturbing feelings of racial bias lurking within her during the George Zimmerman trial; and Vicki, whose family was torn apart by those who voted for Trump and those who did not. They wrote to Obama out of gratitude and desperation, in their darkest times of need, in search of connection. They wrote with anger and respect. And together, this chorus of voices achieves a kind of beautiful harmony: here is a diary of a nation. To Obama is an intimate look at one man's relationship to the American people, and the intersection of politics and empathy in the White House"--

The field of blood : violence in Congress and the road to civil war
Freeman, Joanne B., 1962- author
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 
The Union incarnate for better and worse : the United States Congress -- The mix of men in Congress : meeting place of north and south -- The pull and power of violence : the Cilley-Graves duel (1838) -- Rules of order and the rule of force : dangerous words and the Gag rule debate (1836-44) -- Fighting for the Union : the Compromise of 1850 and the Benton-Foote scuffle (1850) -- A tale of two conspiracies : the power of the press and the battle over Kansas (1854-55) -- Republicans meet the slave power : Charles Sumner and beyond (1855-61)
The previously untold story of the violence in Congress that helped spark the Civil War. In The Field of Blood, Joanne B. Freeman recovers the long-lost story of physical violence on the floor of the U.S. Congress. Drawing on an extraordinary range of sources, she shows that the Capitol was rife with conflict in the decades before the Civil War. Legislative sessions were often punctuated by mortal threats, canings, flipped desks, and all-out slugfests. When debate broke down, congressmen drew pistols and waved Bowie knives. One representative even killed another in a duel. Many were beaten and bullied in an attempt to intimidate them into compliance, particularly on the issue of slavery. These fights didn't happen in a vacuum. Freeman's dramatic accounts of brawls and thrashings tell a larger story of how fisticuffs and journalism, and the powerful emotions they elicited, raised tensions between North and South and led toward war. In the process, she brings the antebellum Congress to life, revealing its rough realities--the feel, sense, and sound of it--as well as its nation-shaping import. Funny, tragic, and rivetingly told, The Field of Blood offers a front-row view of congressional mayhem and sheds new light on the careers of John Quincy Adams, Henry Clay, and other luminaries, as well as introducing a host of lesser-known but no less fascinating men. The result is a fresh understanding of the workings of American democracy and the bonds of Union on the eve of their greatest peril.

Islamophobia and anti-Muslim sentiment : picturing the enemy
Gottschalk, Peter, 1963- author
Lanham, Maryland : Rowman & Littlefield, 
How cartoons work and why images matter -- Overview of western engagements with Muslims -- Symbols of Islam, symbols of difference -- Stereotyping Muslims and establishing the American norm -- Extreme Muslims and the American middle ground -- Moments: 1950-2006 -- Since 2006: the emotions of resurgent nativism and liberal empathy -- Moving images: the trope of "Islamic terrorism" -- Conclusion: common denominators versus essential difference.
In the minds of many Americans, Islam is synonymous with the Middle East, Muslim men with violence, and Muslim women with oppression. A clash of civilizations appears to be increasingly manifest and the war on terror seems a struggle against Islam. These are all symptoms of Islamophobia. Meanwhile, the current surge in nativist bias reveals the racism of anti-Muslim sentiment. This book explores these anxieties through political cartoons and film--media with immediate and important impact. After providing a background on Islamic traditions and their history with America, it graphically shows how political cartoons and films reveal Americans' casual demeaning and demonizing of Muslims and Islam--a phenomenon common among both liberals and conservatives. Islamophobia and Anti-Muslim Sentiment offers both fascinating insights into our culture's ways of "picturing the enemy" as Muslim, and ways of moving beyond antagonism.

Indigenous innovations in higher education : local knowledge and critical research
edited by Elizabeth Sumida Huaman and Bryan McKinley Jones Brayboy, Arizona State University, USA
Rotterdam : Sense Publishers, 2017
This edited volume is the result of a collaborative project of Indigenous graduate education training and higher education-tribal institution partnerships in the southwestern United States. We feature the work of interdisciplinary scholars writing about local peoples, issues, and knowledges that demonstrate rich linkages between universities and Indigenous communities. Collectively, as Indigenous peoples writing, this work takes the opportunity to explore why and how Indigenous peoples are working to reframe dominant limits of our power and to shift educational efforts from the colonial back to an Indigenous center. These efforts reflect a conscientious practice to maintain Indigenous worldviews through diverse yet unified approaches aimed at serving Indigenous peoples and places.

Trump on the couch : inside the mind of the president
Frank, Justin A., author
New York : Avery, an imprint of Penguin Random House, 
Introduction -- Part one: Origins. Mother -- Father -- Brother -- Rivals -- Part two: Pathologies. The psychology of lying -- The psychology of narcissism -- The psychology of destructiveness -- The psychology of racism -- The psychology of sexism and misogyny -- The language of Donald Trump -- The end of the beginning.
No president in the history of the United States has inspired more alarm and confusion than Donald Trump. As questions and concerns about his decisions, behavior, and qualifications for office have multiplied, they point to one primary question: Does he pose a genuine threat to our country? The American Psychiatric Association's Goldwater Rule constrains psychiatrists from offering diagnoses on public figures who are not patients and who have not endorsed such statements. But in Trump on the Couch Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Justin A Frank invokes the moral responsibility that compels him to speak out and present a full portrait of a man who presents us with a clear and present danger... With our country itself at stake, Dr. Frank calls attention to the underlying narcissism, misogyny, deception, and racism that drive the President who endangers it. A penetrating examination of how we as a nation got here and, more important, where we are going, Trump on the Couch sounds a call to action that we cannot ignore.

"Frye Gaillard has given us a deeply personal history, bringing his keen storyteller's eye to this pivotal time in American life. He explores the competing story arcs of tragedy and hope through the political and social movements of the times - civil rights, black power, women's liberation, the Vietnam War and the protests against it. But he also examines the cultural manifestations of change--music, literature, art, religion, and science--and so we meet not only the Brothers Kennedy, Martin Luther King Jr., and Malcolm X, but also Gloria Steinem, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, Harper Lee, Mister Rogers, Rachel Carson, James Baldwin, Andy Warhol, Billy Graham, Thomas Merton, George Wallace, Richard Nixon, Angela Davis, Barry Goldwater, the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and the Berrigan Brothers. "There are many different ways to remember the sixties," Gaillard writes, "and this is mine. There was in these years the sense of a steady unfolding of time, as if history were on a forced march, and the changes spread to every corner of our lives. As future generations debate the meaning (and I seek to do some of that here), I hope to offer a sense of how it felt. I have tried provide within these pages one writer's reconstruction and remembrance of a transcendent era--one that, for better or worse, lives with us still."--Provided by publisher.

Song in a weary throat : memoir of an American pilgrimage
Murray, Pauli, 1910-1985, author
New York : Liveright Publishing Corporation, a division of W.W. Norton & Company, 
"A prophetic memoir by the activist who "articulated the intellectual foundations" (The New Yorker) of the civil rights and women's rights movements. Poet, memoirist, labor organizer, and Episcopal priest, Pauli Murray helped transform the law of the land. Arrested in 1940 for sitting in the whites-only section of a Virginia bus, Murray propelled that life-defining event into a Howard law degree and a fight against "Jane Crow" sexism. Her legal brilliance was pivotal to the overturning of Plessy v. Ferguson, the success of Brown v. Board of Education, and the Supreme Court's recognition that the equal protection clause applies to women; it also connected her with such progressive leaders as Eleanor Roosevelt, Thurgood Marshall, Betty Friedan, and Ruth Bader Ginsberg. Now Murray is finally getting long-deserved recognition: the first African American woman to receive a doctorate of law at Yale, her name graces one of the university's new colleges. Handsomely republished with a new introduction, Murray's remarkable memoir takes its rightful place among the great civil rights autobiographies of the twentieth century."--Provided by publisher.

The specter of peace : rethinking violence and power in the Colonial Atlantic
edited by Michael Goode, John Smolenski
Leiden ; Brill, 
Imperial peace and restraints in the Dutch-Iberian wars for Brazil, 1624-1654 30 / Mark Meuwese -- "In peace with all, or at least in warre with none": tributary subjects and the negotiation of political subordination in Greater Virginia, 1676-1730 64 / Dylan Ruediger -- Violent restraint: keeping peace in British America and India / Brendan Gillis -- Peace, imperial war, and revolution in the eighteenth-century Atlantic World / Geoffrey Plank -- Nonviolence, positive peace, and American pre-revolutionary protest, 1765-1775 / Micah Alpaugh -- "Avoiding the fate of Haiti": negotiating peace in late-colonial Venezuela / Cristina Soriano -- The lessons of Loo Choo: the historical vision of American peace reformers, 1815-1837 / Margot Minardivi.
Specter of Peace' advances a novel historical conceptualization of peace as a process of "right ordering" that involved the careful regulation of violence, the legitimation of colonial authority, and the creation of racial and gendered hierarchies. The volume highlights the many paths of peacemaking that otherwise have hitherto gone unexplored in early American and Atlantic World scholarship and challenges historians to take peace as seriously as violence. Early American peacemaking was a productive discourse of moral ordering fundamentally concerned with regulating violence. The historicization of peace, the authors argue, can sharpen our understanding of violence, empire, and the early modern struggle for order and harmony in the colonial Americas and Atlantic World.

The genesis of America : US foreign policy and the formation of national identity, 1793-1815
Trautsch, Jasper M., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2018
Political Ideologies and American Identity in the Era of the French Revolution -- Foreign Policies of Unneutrality and the Jay Treaty -- Federalists and the Origins of the Quasi-War -- Disentangling America from France -- Republicans and the Origins of the War of 1812 -- Disentangling America from Great Britain.
"The Genesis of America investigates the ways in which US foreign policy contributed to the formation of an American national consciousness. Interpreting American nationalism as a process of external demarcation, Jasper M. Trautsch argues that, for a sense of national self to emerge, the US needed to be disentangled from its most important European reference points: Great Britain and France. As he shows, foreign-policy makers could therefore promote American nationalism by provoking foreign crises and wars with these countries, hereby creating external threats that would bind the fragile union together. By reconstructing how foreign policy was thus used as a nation-building instrument, Trautsch provides an answer to the puzzling question of how Americans - lacking a shared history and culture of their own and justifying their claim for independent nationhood by appeals to universal rights - could develop a sense of particularity after the conclusion of the Revolutionary War"--

What the hell do you have to lose? : Trump's war on civil rights
Williams, Juan, author
New York : PublicAffairs, 2018
Voting rights -- Education -- Public accommodations -- Black voices -- Employment -- Housing.
"In this powerful and timely book, civil rights historian and political analyst Juan Williams denounces Donald Trump for intentionally twisting history to fuel racial tensions for his political advantage. In Williams's lifetime, crusaders for civil rights have braved hatred, violence, and imprisonment, and in so doing made life immeasurably better for African Americans and other marginalized groups. Remarkably, all this progress suddenly seems to have been forgotten--or worse, undone. The stirring history of hard-fought and heroic battles for voting rights, integrated schools, and more is under direct threat from an administration dedicated to restricting these basic freedoms. Williams pulls the fire alarm on the Trump administration's policies, which pose a threat to civil rights without precedent in modern America. [This book] makes a searing case for the enduring value of our historic accomplishments and what happens if they are lost" --

Leadership in turbulent times
Goodwin, Doris Kearns, author
New York, NY : Simon & Schuster, 
Part 1. Ambition and the recognition of leadership -- Abraham: "Every man is said to have his peculiar ambition" -- Theodore: "I rose like a rocket" -- Franklin: "No, call me Franklin" -- Lyndon: "A steam engine in pants" -- Part 2. Adversity and growth -- Abraham Lincoln: "I must die or be better" -- Theodore Roosevelt: "The light has gone out of my life" -- Franklin Roosevelt: "Above all, try something" -- Lyndon Johnson: "The most miserable period of my life" -- Part 3. The leader and the times: how they led -- Transformational leadership: Lincoln and the Emancipation Proclamation -- Crisis management: Theodore Roosevelt and the Coal Strike -- Turnaround leadership: Franklin Roosevelt and the Hundred Days -- Visionary leadership: Lyndon Johnson and Civil Rights -- Epilogue: Of death and remembrance.
Are leaders born or made? Where does ambition come from? How does adversity affect the growth of leadership? Does the leader make the times or do the times make the leader? Historian Doris Kearns Goodwin draws upon the four presidents she has studied most closely -- Abraham Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, and Lyndon B. Johnson (in civil rights) -- to show how they recognized leadership qualities within themselves and were recognized as leaders by others. By looking back to their first entries into public life, we encounter them at a time when their paths were filled with confusion, fear, and hope. They all collided with dramatic reversals that disrupted their lives and threatened to shatter forever their ambitions. Nonetheless, they all emerged fitted to confront the contours and dilemmas of their times. No common pattern describes the trajectory of leadership. Although set apart in background, abilities, and temperament, these men shared a fierce ambition and a deep-seated resilience that enabled them to surmount uncommon hardships. At their best, all four were guided by a sense of moral purpose. At moments of great challenge, they were able to summon their talents to enlarge the opportunities and lives of others.

Whispering out loud : voices of Africana
edited by Michael T. Tillotson
Trenton, New Jersey : Africa World Press, 
"This book contains a collection of articles written by Africana Studies scholars: Kaila Story, De Reef Jamison, Karanja Carrol, Dawn Elissa Fischer, Serie Mc Dougal, Justin Gammage, Marquita Gammage, and Michael Tillotson. Kaila Story examines the dire consequences of young Feminists of color engaging with and adopting a framework that has been repackaged for their racial and class complacency. De Reef Jamison looks at the contributions of African-centered psychologist Bobby Wright through the lens of critical race consciousness, mainstream psychological theory and mentacide. Karanja Carrol examines the work of Cheikh Anta Diops "Two Cradle Theory" as an explanatory basis for the differences in worldview between African and European peoples. Dawn Elissa Fischer explores the wide vistas of the pioneering work of Black and/or Africana-identified anthropologists and how their work relates to the founding philosophies of Black/Africana Studies. Serie Mc Dougal investigates the enduring role and function of theories and paradigms in human inquiry and their specific functions in the discipline of Africana Studies. Justin Gammage interrogates and assesses the economic state of the African American community in Philadelphia and brings forth a solution set for practical application. Marquita Gammage addresses the criticality of illuminating how women of African descent perceive the images of themselves in popular rap music. Michael Tillotson explores the critical necessity of an egalitarian hermeneutic to investigate the lived realities of people of African descent"--Back cover.

"The definitive, dramatic biography of the most important African-American of the nineteenth century: Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave who became the greatest orator of his day and one of the leading abolitionists and writers of the era. As a young man Frederick Douglass (1818-1895) escaped from slavery in Baltimore, Maryland. He was fortunate to have been taught to read by his slave owner mistress, and he would go on to become one of the major literary figures of his time. He wrote three versions of his autobiography over the course of his lifetime and published his own newspaper. His very existence gave the lie to slave owners: with dignity and great intelligence he bore witness to the brutality of slavery. Initially mentored by William Lloyd Garrison, Douglass spoke widely, often to large crowds, using his own story to condemn slavery. He broke with Garrison to become a political abolitionist, a Republican, and eventually a Lincoln supporter. By the Civil War and during Reconstruction, Douglass became the most famed and widely traveled orator in the nation. He denounced the premature end of Reconstruction and the emerging Jim Crow era. In his unique and eloquent voice, written and spoken, Douglass was a fierce critic of the United States as well as a radical patriot. He sometimes argued politically with younger African-Americans, but he never forsook either the Republican party or the cause of black civil and political rights. In this remarkable biography, David Blight has drawn on new information held in a private collection that few other historian have consulted, as well as recently discovered issues of Douglass's newspapers. Blight tells the fascinating story of Douglass's two marriages and his complex extended family. Douglass was not only an astonishing man of words, but a thinker steeped in Biblical story and theology. There has not been a major biography of Douglass in a quarter century. David Blight's Frederick Douglass affords this important American the distinguished biography he deserves"--

American First Ladies and diplomacy -- Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's international education -- Canada and fashion diplomacy -- France, Austria, and England : personalities and Cold War threat -- Venezuela, Colombia, and Mexico: the southern hemisphere and the Alliance for Progress -- India and Pakistan : negotiating in twos -- Cultural diplomacy -- The Mona Lisa and Abu Simbel -- Orchestration of the state funeral and the JFK international legacy.
"This unique rhetorical analysis of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy's communication uncovers five forms of soft diplomacy that catapult her to the top of all American first ladies as a model of international influence. Her use of interpersonal, fashion, language, cultural, and state diplomatic strategies constitute an architectural plan of smart power. Breaking away from the stereotype of Mrs. Kennedy as a style icon, the evidence in this monograph supports her astute awareness of how to support the Kennedy Administration's foreign policy during the Cold War era by engaging state visits to Europe and South America, receiving heads of state at the White House, creating cultural ideals of freedom through art and preservation, and using French and Spanish to speak directly to the people of other countries. Her persuasive tactics set the stage for future first ladies to excel in a role that requires creativity and sound judgment. Students in communication, political science, history, rhetoric, and women's studies will benefit from this book in their own study of first ladies, the presidency, foreign policy, and Cold War history. Written in an engaging style, Jacqueline Kennedy and the Architecture of First Lady Diplomacy will appeal to a range of scholarly interests across disciplines"--

"Rethinking the Struggle for Puerto Rican Rights offers a reexamination of the history of Puerto Ricans' political and social activism in the United States in the twentieth century. Authors Lorrin Thomas and Aldo A. Lauria Santiago survey the ways in which Puerto Ricans worked within the United States to create communities for themselves and their compatriots in times and places where dark-skinned or 'foreign' Americans were often unwelcome. The authors argue that the energetic Puerto Rican rights movement which rose to prominence in the late 1960s was built on a foundation of civil rights activism beginning much earlier in the century. The text contextualizes Puerto Rican activism within the broader context of twentieth-century civil rights movements, while emphasizing the characteristics and goals unique to the Puerto Rican experience. Lucid and insightful, Rethinking the Struggle for Puerto Rican Rights provides a much-needed introduction to a lesser-known but critically important social and political movement"--

The fifth risk
Lewis, Michael author
New York, NY : W.W. Norton & Company, 
Prologue: Lost in transition -- Tail risk -- People risk -- All the President's data.
"The election happened," remembers Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, then deputy secretary of the Department of Energy. "And then there was radio silence." Across all departments, similar stories were playing out: Trump appointees were few and far between; those that did show up were shockingly uninformed about the functions of their new workplace. Some even threw away the briefing books that had been prepared for them. Michael Lewis takes us into the engine rooms of a government under attack by its own leaders. At Agriculture, the funding of vital programs like food stamps and school lunches is being slashed. The Commerce Department may not have enough staff to conduct the 2020 Census properly. Over at Energy, where international nuclear risk is managed, it's not clear there will be enough inspectors to track and locate black market uranium before terrorists do. Willful ignorance plays a role in these looming disasters. If your ambition is to maximize short-term gain without regard to the long-term cost, you are better off not knowing the cost. If you want to preserve your personal immunity to the hard problems, it's better never to really understand those problems. But if there are dangerous fools in this book, there are also heroes -- unsung, of course. They are the linchpins of the system: those public servants whose knowledge, dedication, and proactivity keep the machinery running. Michael Lewis finds them, and he asks them what keeps them up at night.

"In A Nation Forged by Crisis, historian Jay Sexton contends that our national narrative is not one of halting yet inevitable progress, but of repeated disruptions brought about by shifts in the international system. Sexton shows that the American Revolution was a consequence of the increasing integration of the British and American economies; that a necessary precondition for the Civil War was the absence, for the first time in decades, of foreign threats; and that we cannot understand the New Deal without examining the role of European immigrants and their offspring in transforming the Democratic Party. A necessary corrective to conventional narratives of American history, A Nation Forged by Crisis argues that we can only prepare for our unpredictable future by first acknowledging the contingencies of our collective past"--

The rise of Andrew Jackson : myth, manipulation, and the making of modern politics
Heidler, David Stephen, 1955- author
New York : Basic Books, 2018
Introduction -- Prologue -- Hickory -- Hero -- Image -- Caesar -- Two Washingtons -- Solon -- 1824 -- Election -- Bargains -- Allegations -- Machine -- Ink -- Magician -- Mud -- Triumph -- Epilogue.
"Andrew Jackson was volatile and prone to violence, and well into his forties his sole claim on the public's affections derived from his victory in a thirty-minute battle at New Orleans in early 1815. Yet those in his immediate circle believed he was a great man who should be president of the United States. Jackson's election in 1828 is usually viewed as a result of the expansion of democracy. Historians David and Jeanne Heidler argue that he actually owed his victory to his closest supporters, who wrote hagiographies of him, founded newspapers to savage his enemies, and built a political network that was always on message. In transforming a difficult man into a paragon of republican virtue, the Jacksonites exploded the old order and created a mode of electioneering that has been mimicked ever since"--

An unlikely journey : waking up from my American dream
Castro, Julián, author
New York : Little, Brown and Company, 2018
In the spirit of a young Barack Obama's Dreams from My Father, comes a candid and compelling memoir about race and poverty in America. In many ways, there was no reason Julian Castro would have been expected to be a success. Born to unmarried parents in a poverty-stricken neighborhood of a struggling city, his prospects of escaping his circumstance seemed bleak. But he and his twin brother Joaquin had something going for them: their mother. A former political activist, she provided the launch pad for what would become an astonishing ascent. Julian and Joaquin would go on to attend Stanford and Harvard before entering politics at the ripe age of 26. Soon after, Joaquin become a state representative and Julian was elected mayor of San Antonio, a city he helped revitalize and transform into one of the country's leading economies. His success in Texas propelled him onto the national stage, where he was the keynote speaker at the 2012 DNC--the same spot President Obama held three conventions prior--and then to Washington D.C. where he served as the Obama Administration's Secretary of Housing and Urban Development. After being shortlisted as a potential running mate for Hillary Clinton, he is now seen by many as a future presidential candidate. Julian Castro's story not only affirms the American dream, but also resonates with millions, who in an age of political cynicism and hardening hearts are searching for a new hero. No matter one's politics, this book is the transcendent story of a resilient family and the unlikely journey of an emerging national icon.
