American Politics and the African American Quest for Universal Freedom by Hanes Walton, Jr,Robert C. Smith,Sherri L. Wallace Summary

This dynamic and comprehensive text from nationally renowned scholars continues to demonstrate the profound influence African Americans have had—and continue to have—on American politics. Using two interrelated themes—the idea of universal freedom and the concept of minority–majority coalitions—the text demonstrates how the presence of Africans in the United States affected the founding of the Republic and its political institutions and processes. The authors show that through the quest for their own freedom in the United States, African Americans have universalized and expanded the freedoms of all Americans.

Conservative but Not Republican by Tasha S. Philpot Summary

Conservative but Not Republican provides a clear and comprehensive framework for understanding the formation and structure of ideological self-identification and its relationship to party identification in the United States. Exploring why the increase in Black conservatives has not met with a corresponding rise in the number of Black Republicans, the book bridges the literature from a number of different research areas to paint a detailed portrait of African-American ideological self-identification. It also provides insight into a contemporary electoral puzzle facing party strategists, while addressing gaps in the current literature on public opinion and voting behavior. Further, it offers original research from previously untapped data. The book is primarily designed for political science, but is also relevant to African-American studies, communication studies, and psychology. Including easy-to-read tables and figures, it is accessible not only to academic audiences but also to journalists and practitioners.

The African American Electorate by Hanes Walton,Sherman C. Puckett,Donald R. Deskins Summary

How have African Americans voted over time? What types of candidates and issues have been effective in drawing people to vote? These are just two of the questions that The African American Electorate: A Statistical History attempts to answer by bringing together all of the extant, fugitive and recently discovered registration data on African-American voters from Colonial America to the present. This pioneering work also traces the history of the laws dealing with enfranchisement and disenfranchisement of African Americans and provides the election return data for African-American candidates in national and sub-national elections over this same time span. Combining insightful narrative, tabular data, and original maps, The African American Electorate offers students and researchers the opportunity, for the first time, to explore the relationship between voters and political candidates, identify critical variables, and situate African Americans’ voting behavior and political phenomena in the context of America’s political history.

The Right Side of the Sixties by Laura Jane Gifford,Daniel K. Williams Summary

The 1960s were a transformative era for American politics, but much is still unknown about the growth of conservatism during the period when it was radically reshaped and became the national political force that it is today. In their efforts to chronicle the national politicians and organizations that led the movement, previous histories have often neglected local perspectives, the role of religion, transnational exchange, and other aspects that help to explain conservatism's enduring influence in American politics. Taken together, the contributions gathered here offer a cutting-edge synthesis that incorporates these overlooked developments and provides new insights into the way that the 1960s shaped the trajectory of postwar conservatism.

At the Cross by Melynda J. Price Summary

Curing systemic inequalities in the criminal justice system is the unfinished business of the Civil Rights movement. No part of that system highlights this truth more than the current implementation of the death penalty. At the Cross tells a story of the relationship between the death penalty and race in American politics that complicates the common belief that individual African Americans, especially poor African Americans, are more subject to the death penalty in criminal cases. The current death penalty regime operates quite differently than it did in the past. The findings of this research demonstrate the the racial inequity in the meting out of death sentences has legal and political externalities that move beyond individual defendants to larger numbers of African Americans. At the Cross looks at the meaning of the death penalty to and for African Americans by using various sites of analysis. Using various sites of analysis, Price shows the connection between criminal justice policies like the death penalty and the political and legal rights of African Americans who are tangentially connected to the criminal justice system through familial and social networks. Drawing on black politics, legal and political theory and narrative analysis, Price utilizes a mixed-method approach that incorporates analysis of media reports, capital jury selection and survey data, as well as original focus group data. As the rates of incarceration trend upward, Black politics scholars have focused on the impact of incarceration on the voting strength of the black community. Local, and even regional, narratives of African American politics and the death penalty expose the fractures in American democracy that foment perceptions of exclusion among blacks.

Power, Philosophy and Egalitarianism by Robert C. Smith Summary

In this book, Robert C. Smith presents a philosophical and empirical examination on the subordination of women and blacks in the United States. Comparing liberalism—specifically the major social contract philosophies—and Marxism on the nature of the subordination of blacks and women and their proposals, if any, for women’s and black liberation, Smith argues that sexual and racial equalitarianism in the United States is about politics and power. He begins with a discussion of the multiple meanings of politics and its relationship to power, and an analysis of nine power bases blacks and women should acquire and manipulate in order to advance a moral and substantive equalitarianism. These power bases include money, knowledge (including technology and information), religion, morality, authority, size/solidarity, charisma, violence and status. Smith concludes by making a moral case for racial and sexual equalitarianism and advocates for black leadership to use the power bases available to it to make reparations for the civil rights issue of the 21st century. Power, Philosophy and Egalitarianism is an essential read for all those interested in race, women and politics today.

La Femme mystifiée by Betty FRIEDAN Summary

Événement ! La Femme mystifiée, le livre qui a changé la vie des femmes, est pour la première fois réédité depuis sa parution en France en 1964, dans la traduction originale de celle qui n'était pas encore madame la ministre Yvette Roudy. Quand il paraît aux États-Unis en 1963, La Femme mystifiée fait l'effet d'une bombe. Dans cet essai passionnant, fruit d'innombrables entretiens et d'une longue et minutieuse enquête, la journaliste féministe Betty Friedan met des mots sur l'indicible malaise féminin : loin de la plénitude de la femme au foyer célébrée par l' American Way of Life, la femme noie ses frustrations, intellectuelles, culturelles, sexuelles, dans l'alcool et les psychotropes, réduite au rôle de procréatrice silencieuse par un système patriarcal sournoisement oppressant, coupable d'être malheureuse dans une société qui prétend tout faire pour la combler. Plus de cinquante ans plus tard, la voix de Betty Friedan résonne toujours. Une lecture essentielle pour mesurer le chemin parcouru et comprendre les enjeux de notre époque. Le combat n'est pas terminé !

Décoloniser l'esprit by Ngugi Wa Thiong'O Summary

" Ce livre est mon adieu à l'anglais ": Ngugi wa Thiong'o, romancier kényan, n'y va pas par quatre chemins, il décide que désormais, il n'écrira plus qu'en kikuyu. Pour un auteur dont les oeuvres sont largement diffusées dans le monde anglophone, c'est une lourde décision, dont Décoloniser l'esprit, écrit en 1986, explique les raisons. L'origine remonte à une "Conférence des écrivains africains de langue anglaise", organisée en 1962, en Ouganda : elle excluait les auteurs écrivant dans l'une ou l'autre des langues africaines, et le jeune Ngugi se posait alors la question : "Comment a-t-il été possible que nous, écrivains africains, fassions preuve de tant de faiblesse dans la défense de nos propres langues et de tant d'avidité dans la revendication de langues étrangères, à commencer par celles de nos colonisateurs ?" A travers son parcours personnel de romancier et d'homme de théâtre, Ngugi wa Thiong'o montre que le rôle donné aux littératures orales africaines, la vision de l'Afrique comme un tout et non comme un découpage issu de la colonisation, la référence aux traditions de résistance populaire, tout cela qui passe par la langue est la condition nécessaire pour décoloniser l'esprit. Ngugi wa Thiong'o est actuellement professeur et directeur de l'International Center for Writing and Translation à l'université de Californie à Irvine.

Cities and Stability by Jeremy Wallace Summary

China's management of urbanization is an under-appreciated factor in the regime's longevity. The Chinese Communist Party fears "Latin Americanization" -- the emergence of highly unequal megacities with their attendant slums and social unrest. Such cities threaten the survival of nondemocratic regimes. To combat the threat, many regimes, including China's, favor cities in policymaking. Cities and Stability shows this "urban bias" to be a Faustian Bargain: cities may be stabilized for a time, but the massive in-migration from the countryside that results can generate the conditions for political upheaval. Through its hukou system of internal migration restrictions, China has avoided this dilemma, simultaneously aiding urbanites and keeping farmers in the countryside. The system helped prevent social upheaval even during the Great Recession, when tens of millions of laid-off migrant workers dispersed from coastal cities. Jeremy Wallace's powerful account forces us to rethink the relationship between cities and political stability throughout the developing world.

L'Etat en France de 1789 à nos jours by Pierre Rosanvallon Summary

Le très petit nombre des travaux consacrés à l'histoire de l'État français contraste singulièrement avec la vigueur des jugements qui s'expriment à son propos. D'où le décalage : l'État comme problème politique, ou comme phénomène bureaucratique, est au cœur des passions partisanes et des débats philosophiques tout en restant une sorte de non-objet historique. Ce quasi-vide, Pierre Rosanvallon a voulu commencer à le combler dans cet ouvrage, qui est à la fois bilan et programme. Bilan, il propose une première synthèse des travaux disponibles et offre une vaste bibliographie commentée. Programme, il dessine un nouveau cadre conceptuel pour comprendre l'histoire de l'État. Rompant avec les approches étroitement quantitatives du poids de l'État et avec les catégories platement descriptives des "domaines d'intervention', ce livre analyse de manière dynamique la façon dont se sont formées et développées les différentes figures du rapport État/société. Il appréhende ainsi successivement le Léviathan démocratique (l'État souverain constitué par la société), l'instituteur du social (l'État producteur de lien social et d'unité), l'État providence (l'État réducteur d'incertitudes) et le régulateur de l'économie (l'État keynésien), en réfléchissant en permanence sur les spécificités du cas français.
