Exporting American Dreams Thurgood Marshall's African Journey by Mary L Dudziak ( )
16 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 2,173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Mary Dudziak's Exporting American Dreams tells the little-known story of Thurgood Marshall's work with Kenyan leaders as they fought with the British for independence in the early 1960s. Not long after he led the legal team in Brown v. Board of Education, Marshall aided Kenya's constitutional negotiations, as adversaries battled over rights and land--not with weapons, but with legal arguments. Set in the context of Marshall's civil rights work in the United States, this transnational history sheds light on legal reform and social change in the midst of violent upheavals in Africa and America
Cold War civil rights : race and the image of American democracy by Mary L Dudziak ( Book )
29 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In what may be the best analysis of how international relations affected any domestic issue, Mary Dudziak interprets postwar civil rights as a Cold War feature. She argues that the Cold War helped facilitate key social reforms, including desegregation. Civil rights activists gained tremendous advantage as the government sought to polish its international image. But improving the nation's reputation did not always require real change. This focus on image rather than substance - combined with constraints on McCarthy-era political activism and the triumph of law-and-order rhetoric - limited the nature and extent of progress." "Archival information, much of it newly available, supports Dudziak's argument that civil rights was Cold War policy. But the story is also one of people: an African-American veteran of World War II lynched in Georgia; an attorney general flooded by civil rights petitions from abroad; the teenagers who desegregated Little Rock's Central High; African diplomats denied restaurant service; black artists living in Europe and supporting the civil rights movement from overseas; conservative politicians viewing desegregation as a communist plot; and civil rights leaders who saw their struggle eclipsed by Vietnam."--Jacket

War time : an idea, its history, its consequences by Mary L Dudziak ( Book )
12 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
When is wartime? On the surface, it is a period of time in which a society is at war. But we now live in what President Obama has called "an age without surrender ceremonies," as the Administration announced an "end to conflict in Iraq," even though conflict on the ground is ongoing. It is no longer easy to distinguish between wartime and peacetime. In this inventive meditation on war, time, and the law, Mary Dudziak argues that wartime is not as discrete a time period as we like to think. Instead, America has been engaged in some form of ongoing overseas armed conflict for over a century. Meanwhile policy makers and the American public continue to view wars as exceptional events that eventually give way to normal peace times. This has two consequences. First, because war is thought to be exceptional, "wartime" remains a shorthand argument justifying extreme actions like torture and detention without trial. Second, ongoing warfare is enabled by the inattention of the American people. More disconnected than ever from the wars their nation is fighting, public disengagement leaves us without political restraints on the exercise of American war powers. -- Book jacket

Robert R. Wilson lecture ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Mary Dudziak, the John Hope Franklin Visiting Professor of American Legal History, delivers a public lecture on "The Martial Spirit" in American History: John Hope Franklin on Militarization and War. The role of militaries in enabling or undermining democracy has been on display in 2011 during the Arab Spring. In American history as well, military conflict has played an important role in shaping domestic politics and culture. African-American history is often seen as peripheral to the history of war and militarization, but historian John Hope Franklin placed it at the center. Franklin shows us that African-American history and the history of American war and militarization were intertwined

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Thomas Baker discusses a course he taught on constitutional history, how it was structured, and readings for it. Paul Finkelman speaks on slavery and race as a major force in U.S. constitutional law and its involvement in many famous cases, and how this can be taught. Michael Curtis discusses how to incorporate teaching about free speech (especially up to the Civil War) in constitutional law courses, and history of non-legal (social) suppression or promotion of free speech. Linda Kerber addresses gender issues in constitutional law, and how most changes in the legal treatment of women in the U.S. have arisen from social movements rather than the courts
