The Price of China's Economic Development: Power, Capital, and the Poverty of Rights - Zhaohui HongEdit/Delete
ISBN: 9780813161150
Publication Date: 2015 University Press of Kentucky
The People's Republic of China has experienced significant transformations since Deng Xiaoping instituted economic reforms in 1978. Subsequent leaders continued and often broadened Deng's policies, shifting the nation from agrarianism to industrialism, from isolation to internationalism, and from centralized planning to market-based economics. As the world strives to understand the nation's rapid development, few observers have comprehensively examined the social and cultural price of the economic boom for the majority of the Chinese people.

Zhaohui Hong assesses the sociocultural consequences of these reforms in this provocative study. He contends that modern China functions as an oligarchy or plutocracy ruled by an alliance of political power and private capital where the boundaries between the private and public sectors are constantly shifting. This "power-capital institution" based on three millennia of Confucian ideology and decades of Maoist communism exercises monopolistic control of public resources at the expense of civil society and social justice for the majority of citizens.

Farm Workers and the Churches : The Movement in California and Texas - Alan J. WattEdit/Delete
ISBN: 978-1603441933
Publication Date: 2010 Texas A&M University Press
In the mid-1960s, the charismatic César Chávez led members of California's La Causa movement in boycotting the grape harvest, and melon pickers in South Texas called a strike against growers, contesting unfair labor and wage practices in both states.

In Farm Workers and the Churches, Alan J. Watt shows how the religious and social contexts of the farm workers, their leaders, and the larger society helped or hindered these two pivotal actions.

Cold War on the Airwaves : The Radio Propaganda War Against East Germany - Schlosser, Nicholas J.Edit/Delete
ISBN: 9780252039690
Publication Date: 2015 University of Illinois Press
"This book is a little gem. With meticulous research, Nicholas Schlosser has recreated a fascinating slice of Cold War history: the struggle for the airwaves of Berlin undertaken by the American-funded station known as Radio in the American Sector. Key episodes include the Berlin Airlift, the role of the station in the East German rising of 1953, and its coverage of the building of the Berlin Wall. This is a valuable addition to modern German history, U.S. propaganda history, international broadcasting studies, and the scholarship of the Cold War."--Nicholas J. Cull, author of The Cold War and the United States Information Agency, 1945–1989
