  • The "Good War" in American Memory

    By John Bodnar

    The "Good War" in American Memory dispels the long-held myth that Americans forged an agreement on why they had to fight in World War II. John Bodnar's sociocultural examination of the vast public debate that took place in the United States over the war's meaning reveals that the idea of the "good war" was highly contested."This engaging and well-written book addresses not just World War II but... war remembrance more generally."-- Cercles"Bodnar provides a corrective lens for those whose recent myopia accepts the celebratory effect of... traditional treatments of American participation in World War II... What Bodnar has adamantly recovered is the faded suffering of family members whose loved ones were buried overseas or never found, and the memories of veterans who could not escape the confusion and frustration."-- Journal of American History"Show[s] movingly and with great care how the history of emotion is embedded in the history of war and point[s] the way to future scholarship with authority and conviction. That is no mean achievement."-- American Historical Review

    In der Sonder- und Sozialpadagogik steht die demokratische Bildungs- und Erziehungskultur auf dem Prufstand. Anerkennung, Partizipation, Dialog und die Achtung der Kinder- und Menschenrechtskonventionen werden derzeit in der padagogischen Praxis zuruck gedrangt: sozialtechnologische 'Straf-Padagogiken' sowie 'Lob der Disziplin' bedienen den ordnungspolitischen Mainstream. Diese so gar nicht neue, sondern vielmehr antiquierte Erziehungskultur steht im Mittelpunkt dieses Bandes. In ihren Beitragen analysieren die Autorinnen und Autoren aus unterschiedlichen erziehungswissenschaftlichen Perspektiven die Komplexitat und Vielschichtigkeit dieser Entwicklung. Im ersten Teil wird die derzeitige Erziehungskultur unter dem Aspekt einer dem Humanismus und der Demokratie verpflichteten Padagogik betrachtet. Der zweite Teil vertieft das Spektrum der derzeitigen Kontroversen um die Praxis einer Konfrontativen Padagogik. Der dritte Teil widmet sich den gesellschaftskritischen Repliken auf (Un)Kulturen von Bildung und Erziehung. Zentraler Bezugspunkt der theorie- und praxisbezogenen Beitrage ist das Recht jedes Kindes und Jugendlichen auf eine gewaltfreie Erziehung.

    "A revelatory account of poverty in America so deep that we, as a country, don't think it exists Jessica Compton's family of four would have no cash income unless she donated plasma twice a week at her local donation center in Tennessee. Modonna Harrisand her teenage daughter Brianna in Chicago often have no food but spoiled milk on weekends. After two decades of brilliant research on American poverty, Kathryn Edin noticed something she hadn't seen since the mid-1990s -- households surviving on virtually no income. Edin teamed with Luke Shaefer, an expert on calculating incomes of the poor, to discover that the number of American families living on $2.00 per person, per day, has skyrocketed to 1.5 million American households, including about 3 million children. Where do these families live? How did they get so desperately poor? Edin has "turned sociology upside down" (Mother Jones) with her procurement of rich -- and truthful -- interviews. Through the book's many compelling profiles, moving and startling answers emerge. The authors illuminate a troubling trend: a low-wage labor market that increasingly fails to deliver a living wage, and a growing but hidden landscape of survival strategies among America's extreme poor. More than a powerful expose, $2.00 a Day delivers new evidence and new ideas to our national debate on income inequality. "--

  • 'Believing Women' in Islam: Unreading Patriarchal Interpretations of the Qur'an

    Does Islam call for the oppression of women? Non-Muslims point to the subjugation of women that occurs in many Muslim countries, especially those that claim to be 'Islamic,' while many Muslims read the Qur'an in ways that seem to justify sexual oppression, inequality, and patriarchy. Taking a wholly different view, Asma Barlas develops a believer's reading of the Qur'an that demonstrates the radically egalitarian and antipatriarchal nature of its teachings.
  • 'Belonging to the World': Women's Rights and American Constitutional Culture

    Belonging to the World: Women's Rights and American Constitutional Culture surveys the treatment of women in American law from the nation's earliest beginnings in British North America to the present. Placing the legal history of women in the broader social, political, and economic context of American history, this book examines the evolution of women's constitutional status in the United States, the development of rights consciousness among women, and their attempts to expand zones of freedom for all women. This is the first general account of women and American constitutional history to include the voices of women alongside the more familiar voices of lawmakers. An original work of historical synthesis, it delineates the shifting relationships between American law practice and women, both within the family and elsewhere, as it looks beyond the campaign for woman suffrage to broader areas of contest and controversy. Women's stories are used throughout the book to illustrate the extraordinary range and persistence of female rebellion from the 1630s up through the present era of "post-feminist" retrenchment and backlash. Belonging to the World: Women's Rights and American Constitutional Culture dispels the myth that the story of women and the law is synonymous only with woman suffrage or married women's property acts, showing instead that American women have struggled along many fronts, not only to regain and expand their rights as sovereign citizens, but also to remake American culture.
