Over the past twenty years, presidential candidates have developed an entertainment talk show strategy in which they routinely chat with the likes of Oprah Winfrey, David Letterman, and Jon Stewart. In fact, between 1992 and 2012, there have been more than 200 candidate interviews on daytime and late night talk shows with nearly every presidential candidate—from long shot primary contender to major party nominee—hitting the talk show circuit at some point during the campaign. This book explores the development of the entertainment talk show strategy and assesses its impact on presidential campaigns. The chapters mix detailed narrative with extensive empirical data on audiences, content, viewer reaction, and press coverage to explain why candidates have embraced this strategy and the conditions under which these interviews are most likely to meet their expectations. The book also explores how these interviews can enhance campaigns by connecting a critical segment of the voting population with candidates who provide useful political information in a casual setting. Talk Show Campaigns shows that this is more than a gimmick—it’s a key part of how candidates communicate with voters, which reveals a lot about how campaigns have changed over the past two decades.

Scientists, philosophers, and storytellers often question why human beings appear to remain constant while existing in a state of change at the same tune. Among those who explore and expose dramatic conflicts between human stability and flux, the number of behavioral scientists has remained relatively low - that is, until Leo Srole followed the progress of a large cohort of people in his Midtown Longitudinal Study. This statistical project was designed to analyze mental health and assess human biological, social, and psychological change. New York's Upper East Side was the study's focus, a sociologically insular community, consisting of loosely differentiated neighborhoods, with a population of generalizable significance that transcended individual characteristics. Midtowners, studied hi 1954 then reinterviewed in 1974, were the subjects of analysis. After a twenty-year hiatus, Srole's eagerly awaited findings and outcomes are available.Personal History and Health by Ernest Joel Millman is a posthumous synthesis of Leo Srole's seminal behavioral study. This book presents the principal findings of MLS - with emphasis on adult mental health predictors, not cause-and-effect relationships. Srole used such biophysical correlates as gender and generation, mental health and history of somatic disorders, and the statistical methods of multiple correlation and regression analysis to predict average mental health. Through this work, Srole's pioneering exploration of social age and adult mental health - in particular how they differed for the women and men of the Midtown Longitudinal Study - has been completed. Personal History and Health is the conclusive, long-range view of those changes.These are Srole's final perspectives on mental health. As was characteristic of him, it is not exploratory or confirmatory, nor does it declare conclusions; rather, it raises questions. Millman offers an accessible yet sophisticated presentation of sociomedical sampling and analysis in language which may be understood by statistically unsophisticated readers, placing all of the explanations, details, figures, and tables in comprehensive statistical appendices. This book will appeal to those in the mental health field, sociomedical scientists, and those with interest in the socioeconomic correlates of health status and/or social mobility in urban society.

The AI revolution can seem powerful and unstoppable, extracting data from every aspect of our lives and subjecting us to unprecedented surveillance and control. But at ground level, even the most advanced ‘smart’ technologies are not as all-powerful as either the tech companies or their critics would have us believe. From gig worker activism to wellness tracking with sex toys and TikTokers' manipulation of the algorithm, this book shows how ordinary people are negotiating the datafication of society. The book establishes a new theoretical framework for understanding everyday experiences of data and automation, and offers guidance on the ethical responsibilities we share as we learn to live together with data-driven machines. Everyday Data Cultures is essential reading for students and researchers in digital media and communication, as well as for anyone interested in the role of data and AI in society.
