As issues of history and memory collide in our society and in the classroom, the time is ripe to rethink the place of history in our schools. Knowing, Teaching, and Learning History represents a unique effort by an international group of scholars to understand the future of teaching and learning about the past. It will challenge the ways in which historians, teachers, and students think about teaching history. The book concerns itself first and foremost with the question, "How do students develop sophisticated historical understandings and how can teachers best encourage this process?" Recent developments in psychology, education, and historiography inform the debates that take place within Knowing, Teaching, and Learning History. This four-part volume identifies the current issues and problems in history education, then works towards a deep and considered understanding of this evolving field. The contributors to this volume link theory to practice, making crucial connections with those who teach history. Published in conjunction with the American Historical Association.

Twentieth anniversary edition of a landmark book that cataloged a vibrant but disappearing neighborhood in New York City In the two decades that preceded the original publication of Times Square Red, Times Square Blue, Forty-second Street, then the most infamous street in America, was being remade into a sanitized tourist haven. In the forced disappearance of porn theaters, peep shows, and street hustlers to make room for a Disney store, a children’s theater, and large, neon-lit cafes, Samuel R. Delany saw a disappearance, not only of the old Times Square, but of the complex social relationships that developed there. Samuel R. Delany bore witness to the dismantling of the institutions that promoted points of contact between people of different classes and races in a public space, and in this hybrid text, argues for the necessity of public restrooms and tree-filled parks to a city's physical and psychological landscape. This twentieth anniversary edition includes a new foreword by Robert Reid-Pharr that traces the importance and continued resonances of Samuel R. Delany’s groundbreaking Times Square Red, Times Square Blue.

Der alternde Schriftsteller Arnold Hawley blickt auf sein Leben zurück: auf seine prekäre Existenz als Dichter, seine Homosexualität und sein Selbstverständnis als Schwarzer. Klarsichtig und altersweise registriert und analysiert er die Homophobie und den Rassismus der amerikanischen Gesellschaft, aber auch die eigenen Ängste in einem aussichtslos scheinenden Kampf um Anerkennung. "Dunkle Reflexionen" ist ein poetischer Roman über das Wechselspiel von Armut und Kreativität, Schönheit und Angst, Hoffnung und Resignation - und den Durchhaltewillen in einer immer unbarmherzigeren Welt. Eines jener seltenen Bücher, die ehrlicher sind als das Leben selbst.

Wenn jemand ein Händchen dafür hat, sich den Falschen rauszupicken, dann bin ich es. Schwul? Weiberheld? Spieler? Muttersöhnchen? Alle zu mir! Zur Zeit bin ich in einen meiner Kunden aus dem Coffeeshop verknallt. Wenn ich auch nur daran denke, was seine schönen Hände mit meinem Körper anstellen könnten, wird mir jedes Mal ganz heiß! Aber das ist natürlich bloß eine harmlose Schwärmerei von mir. Ist ja nicht so, als würde ich Luke jemals außerhalb des Cafés treffen. Doch erstens kommt es anders, und zweitens als man denkt, denn unsere Wege kreuzen sich an einem Ort, der meine wildesten Fantasien sprengt. Seine Hände sind plötzlich genau dort, wo ich sie mir gewünscht habe: zwischen meinen gespreizten Beinen. Die Sache ist mir so peinlich, dass ich Luke eigentlich nie mehr wiedersehen will, aber das Schicksal hat offenbar andere Pläne für uns: Als ich in eine Notlage gerate, wird er zum Retter in der Not und wir kommen uns näher. Was wäre, wenn der Falsche plötzlich der Richtige ist? Der New York Times Bestseller-Roman - übersetzt von der Erfolgsautorin Linda Mignani ("Federzirkel").

These essays cluster around topics related to queer theory on the one hand, and on the other, questions concerning the paraliterary genres: science fiction, pornography, comics, and more.

Mit Entschlossenheit, Talent und Charisma schaffte es Michael Douglas, sich frühzeitig aus dem Schatten seines berühmten Vaters Kirk Douglas zu lösen. 1988 erhielt er für seine Rolle in "Wall Street" den Oscar. Wie kaum ein anderer zeigte er seine große Wandlungsfähigkeit in kontroversen Filmen wie "Eine verhängnisvolle Affäre", "Basic Instinct" und "Falling Down". Während er auf dem Höhepunkt seiner beruflichen Karriere angekommen schien, geriet sein Privatleben jedoch an einen Tiefpunkt: Gerüchte über Seitensprünge, die Verurteilung seines Sohnes wegen Drogenhandels, der Kampf gegen den Kehlkopfkrebs, und schließlich die Trennung auf Zeit von Catharine Zeta-Jones. Das eindrucksvolle Porträt eines großen Schauspielers, der im Leben nichts ausgelassen hat.

Amadou Diallo, Abner Louima, Anthony Baez, Patrick Dorismond. New York City has been rocked in recent years by the fate of these four men at the hands of the police. But police brutality in New York City is a multi-dimensional phenomenon that refers not only to the hyperviolent response of white male police officers as in these cases, but to an entire set of practices that target homeless people, vendors, and sexual minorities. The complexity of the problem requires a commensurate response, which Zero Tolerance fulfills with a range of scholarship and activism. Offering perspectives from law and society, women's studies, urban and cultural studies, labor history, and the visual arts, the essays assembled here complement, and provide a counterpoint, to the work of police scholars on this subject. Framed as both a response and a challenge to official claims that intensified law enforcement has produced New York City's declining crime rates, Zero Tolerance instead posits a definition of police brutality more encompassing than the use of excessive physical force. Further, it develops the connections between the most visible and familiar forms of police brutality that have sparked a new era of grassroots community activism, and the day-to-day violence that accompanies the city's campaign to police the "quality of life." Contributors include: Heather Barr, Paul G. Chevigny, Derrick Bell, Tanya Erzen, Dayo F. Gore, Amy S. Green, Paul Hoffman, Andrew Hsiao, Tamara Jones, Joo-Hyun Kang, Andrea McArdle, Bradley McCallum, Andrew Ross, Eric Tang, Jacqueline Tarry, Sasha Torres, and Jennifer R. Wynn.

For more than a century, Times Square has mesmerized the world with the spectacle of its dazzling supersigns, its theaters, and its often-seedy nightlife. New York City’s iconic crossroads has drawn crowds of revelers, thrill-seekers, and other urban denizens, not to mention lavish outpourings of advertising and development money. Many have hotly debated the recent transformation of this legendary intersection, with voices typically falling into two opposing camps. Some applaud a blighted red-light district becoming a big-budget, mainstream destination. Others lament an urban zone of lawless possibility being replaced by a Disneyfied, theme-park version of New York. In Money Jungle, Benjamin Chesluk shows that what is really at stake in Times Square are fundamental questions about city life—questions of power, pleasure, and what it means to be a citizen in contemporary urban space. Chesluk weaves together surprising stories of everyday life in and around the Times Square redevelopment, tracing the connections between people from every level of this grand project in social and spatial engineering: the developers, architects, and designers responsible for reshaping the urban public spaces of Times Square and Forty-second Street; the experimental Midtown Community Court and its Times Square Ink. job-training program for misdemeanor criminals; encounters between NYPD officers and residents of Hell’s Kitchen; and angry confrontations between city planners and neighborhood activists over the future of the area. With an eye for offbeat, telling details and a perspective that is at once sympathetic and critical, Chesluk documents how the redevelopment has tried, sometimes successfully and sometimes not, to reshape the people and places of Times Square. The result is a colorful and engaging portrait, illustrated by stunning photographs by long-time local photographer Maggie Hopp, of the street life, politics, economics, and cultural forces that mold America’s urban centers.

The Einstein Intersection won the Nebula Award for best science fiction novel of 1967. The surface story tells of the problems a member of an alien race, Lo Lobey, has assimilating the mythology of earth, where his kind have settled among the leftover artifacts of humanity. The deeper tale concerns, however, the way those who are "different" must deal with the dominant cultural ideology. The tale follows Lobey's mythic quest for his lost love, Friza. In luminous and hallucinated language, it explores what new myths might emerge from the detritus of the human world as those who are "different" try to seize history and the day.

What is the price of a limb? A child? Ethnicity? Love? In a world that is often ruled by buyers and sellers, those things that are often considered priceless become objects to be marketed and from which to earn a profit. Ranging from black market babies to exploitative sex trade operations to the marketing of race and culture, Rethinking Commodification presents an interdisciplinary collection of writings, including legal theory, case law, and original essays to reexamine the traditional legal question: ?To commodify or not to commodify?” In this pathbreaking course reader, Martha M. Ertman and Joan C. Williams present the legal cases and theories that laid the groundwork for traditional critiques of commodification, which tend to view the process as dehumanizing because it reduces all human interactions to economic transactions. This “canonical” section is followed by a selection of original essays that present alternative views of commodification based on the concept that commodification can have diverse meanings in a variety of social contexts. When viewed in this way, the commodification debate moves beyond whether or not commodification is good or bad, and is assessed instead on the quality of the social relationships and wider context that is involved in the transaction. Rethinking Commodification contains an excellent array of contemporary issues, including intellectual property, reparations for slavery, organ transplants, and sex work; and an equally stellar array of contributors, including Richard Posner, Margaret Jane Radin, Regina Austin, and many others.
