Summary:

“These are remarkable and poignant stories that need to be told.” —Ken Burns More than six million people watch Bob Dotson’s Emmy award-winning segment, American Story, on NBC’s Today Show. For the last four decades, Dotson has traveled the country searching out inspiring individuals who quietly perform everyday miracles. In the process, he has become the treasured cartographer of America’s heart and soul. Today’s news is overwhelmingly grim; it’s also told by journalists who travel in herds as they trail politicians and camp out at big stories. In American Story, Dotson shines a light on America’s neglected corners, introducing readers to the ordinary Americans who have learned to fix what really matters. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Summary:

In an atmosphere where the Mexican American population is viewed in terms of immigrant labor, this edited book examines the strong tradition of wealth creation and business creation within this population. In the introduction, readers are presented with enterprises such as Latin Works and Real Links, which represent large, successful, and middle-size businesses. Chapters span research methods and units of analysis, utilizing archival data, ethnographic data, and the analysis of traditional census data to disaggregate gender and more broadly examine questions of business formation. From the chapters emerges a picture of problems overcome, success, and contemporary difficulties in developing new businesses. Analysis reveals how Mexican American entrepreneurs compare with other ethnic groups as they continue to build their ventures. This work is a refreshing alternative to books that focus on the labor aspects of the Mexican American experience. Contributors reveal the strong history of self-help and entrepreneurship of this population.

Summary:

“Politics is stuck,” writes Bill Bradley, in this insightful, informative, and provocative book about America at a crossroads, but “idealism isn’t dead. It can be reawakened.” What will it take to make America a better, stronger, truer country? asks the bestselling author, former Knicks star, and onetime presidential candidate. Bill Bradley believes that America is at a teachable moment when we are compelled to reevaluate our political system, our leadership, our agenda as a nation, and ourselves as citizens. With clarity and urgency, Bradley shows why the story we are being told now about who we are as a people is not true. He then offers a new story about our nation, based on America’s rich heritage and his belief in the character of the American people. Bradley explores what changes need to be made in our parties, in our politics, and in citizen activism to ensure America’s future. He asserts that the American people are ready for the truth and suggests that the party that chooses to embrace this new story will be in power for a generation. Writing from his own experience in politics and drawing on his knowledge of history, Bradley shows how the Republican Party has built a solid pyramid structure since the 1970s, at the base of which are money, ideas, and media, whereas the Democratic Party’s structure is an inverted pyramid, with too much emphasis put on the need for a charismatic leader to hold the pyramid up. Each party, for different reasons, fails to deal with the real issues that now confront America. This informed and inspiring call to action is addressed not only to the parties and elected leaders, but to citizens as well. Bradley proposes things every American can do to shape our nation’s future. He points out that if eighty percent of the electorate voted, instead of fifty percent, it would be the most important change in American politics since women got the vote. Now more than ever, he says, we need to embrace an “ethic of connectedness,” a combination of collective action and individual responsibility, to solve our nation’s most pressing problems, and he argues that the fate of all countries is bound together as never before. Writing today with the freedom of a private citizen, Bradley provides this transformative and eye-opening book about the danger and the promise of America’s choice at this crucial moment in the nation’s history.

The stories included in this book show Native American storytelling at its best.

Summary:

A profoundly courageous and insightful memoir, An American Story documents the events that have shaped journalist Debra Dickerson's conscience. The daughter of former sharecroppers, Dickerson never imagined she would emerge from her squalid St. Louis neighborhood to become an acclaimed journalist with a Harvard Law degree. A constant reader and a straight-A student, nevertheless Dickerson's lack of confidence kept her from accepting the many colleges offers she received. Instead she enlisted in the U.S. Air Force, quickly rising through the ranks. In spite of her success, she recognized within herself deep-seated conflict at being a working class black woman living in a white man's world. Her path to self-acceptance is at the heart of this refreshing narrative. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Summary:

A supplemental textbook for middle and high school students, Hoosiers and the American Story provides intimate views of individuals and places in Indiana set within themes from American history. During the frontier days when Americans battled with and exiled native peoples from the East, Indiana was on the leading edge of America’s westward expansion. As waves of immigrants swept across the Appalachians and eastern waterways, Indiana became established as both a crossroads and as a vital part of Middle America. Indiana’s stories illuminate the history of American agriculture, wars, industrialization, ethnic conflicts, technological improvements, political battles, transportation networks, economic shifts, social welfare initiatives, and more. In so doing, they elucidate large national issues so that students can relate personally to the ideas and events that comprise American history. At the same time, the stories shed light on what it means to be a Hoosier, today and in the past.

Summary:

Tsombay, the African forest hunter, transported to a South Carolina plantation in 1714, has never before seen pale people with blue eyes or copper-colored people with black eyes. Nor has he seen such a sky in his worst nightmare, the sun naked, the star-pictures all wrong. Even the woods are alien, as if a twisted reflection of his own beloved forest back home, though he will kill his slave-driver to escape into those forbidding trees to search for his wife and son, torn from him a year past by the slave trade...

Summary:

From Jim Crow to Barack Obama, The Fundamentalist's Daughter peeks behind America's thinning veil through the interplay of past and present and the commonality of two dissimilar families. The novel begins when aspiring writer Adam Lubin travels south to retrace his father's Freedom Summer footsteps. Intellectually immersed in a racist Jim Crow past, en route home he becomes entangled in the real fundamentalist present after meeting Crystal Cunningham, daughter of a doctrinaire Southern Baptist minister. From Ann Arbor to Birmingham to New York, the story parallels the Lubin and Cunningham families, dissecting America's culture war along the way. A passionate chronicle of ambition, tragedy, and renewal, its tone converts from youthful adventure to edgy suspense. Provocatively, the story intertwines new love and old friendship, family dynamics and individual anxiety, all seamlessly framed within the deplorable integration of politics and religion weaving America's 21st Century tapestry of contradictions. The broad themes are distilled in daily life's small details, revealed by a thoughtful, realistic narrative. REVISED 2016

Summary:

This text closely examines Pietro DiDonato's classic novel Christ in Concrete from an historical, sociological and literary perspective. Louise Napolitano examines Christ in Concrete (1939) as a chronicle of the experience of Italian immigrants in the United States during the twenties and early thirties. The literary analysis involves a thematic and stylistic study, focusing on the work's modern, realistic, naturalistic, romantic and classic qualities. In addition, this study places Christ in Concrete in both the American as well as the Italian American literary tradition.
