News for all the people : the epic story of race and the American media by Juan González ( Book )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 1,080 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Here is a new, sweeping narrative history of American news media that puts race at the center of the story. From the earliest colonial newspapers to the Internet age, America's racial divisions have played a central role in the creation of the country's media system, just as the media has contributed to--and every so often, combated--racial oppression. News for All the People reveals how racial segregation distorted the information Americans received from the mainstream media. It unearths numerous examples of how publishers and broadcasters actually fomented racial violence and discrimination through their coverage. And it chronicles the influence federal media policies exerted in such conflicts. It depicts the struggle of Black, Latino, Asian, and Native American journalists who fought to create a vibrant yet little-known alternative, democratic press, and then, beginning in the 1970s, forced open the doors of the major media companies."--Dust jacket
Fallout : the environmental consequences of the World Trade Center collapse by Juan González ( Book )
2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 731 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Within days of the September 11th attack in New York City, Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Christie Whitman, together with Rudy Giuliani, reassured New Yorkers that air "contaminants are either not detectable or are below the Agency's concern levels." In fact, EPA tests taken at the time showed high concentrations of toxic materials in the air downtown, including asbestos, dioxins, and heavy metals. Con Edison and the Port Authority revealed--two months after the attack--that nearly 200,000 gallons of diesel fuel and transformer oils, much of it contaminated with low-level PCBs, had escaped beneath Ground Zero. And independent measurements of indoor air, widespread because the agency declined to test private buildings, showed astronomically higher readings. Journalist Juan Gonzalez argues that public officials misled New Yorkers about the real dangers of toxic contamination after September 11. Their failure may have profound effects on the long-term health of New Yorkers and the reputation of the ex-mayor
Roll down your window : stories of a forgotten America by Juan González ( Book )
6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Juan Gonzalez, described by the Village Voice as "the most radical person in the above-it-all world of New York daily journalism," is a reporter who takes as his beat the streets and projects of America's inner cities and the barrios across its southern borders. In these passionate and vivid despatches, he reports from the frontline of a social crisis which stretches from New York to Los Angeles, across the Rio Grande to Mexico's maquiladoras, through to Haiti, Honduras and Cuba. Written not just about the ghetto, but from it, Gonzalez's stories portray workers on strike, refugees on the run, owners on the make and a journalist on the case. Together they bring us face to face with "human beings whose tragedies illuminate the landscape of a forgotten America."

Volcans des Antilles la Montagne Pelée et l'arc des Soufrières de la Caraïbe by Juan González ( Visual )
2 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in French and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Le 8 mai 1902, à 8 heures du matin, une éruption de la Montagne Pelée anéantissait la ville de Saint-Pierre à la Martinique et, en moins de 3 minutes, causait la mort de près de 30 000 personnes. Moins d'un siècle plus tard, en 1995, l'île de Montserrat, à quelques dizaines de kilomètres au nord de la Guadeloupe, connaissait à son tour une crise éruptive dévastatrice, heureusement moins meurtrière parce que diagnostiquée à temps. Le film "Volcans des Antilles" analyse en détail ces deux crises volcaniques, en les replaçant dans le contexte plus général du volcanisme dans la Caraïbe. Il montre comment, grâce aux travaux d'Alfred Lacroix sur les éruptions de la Montagne Pelée, un nouveau concept est né : celui de nuée ardente et d'éruption péléenne, permettant aux scientifiques qui lui ont succédé de mettre en place un système de surveillance et des plans d'évacuation destinés à empêcher que se reproduisent aujourd'hui, dans chacune des îles des Petites Antilles où le volcanisme est toujours actif, des catastrophes aussi meurtrières que celle de Saint-Pierre en 1902

Eviter une nouvelle catastrophe : tel est le rôle de l'Observatoire volcanologique qui utilise plusieurs méthodes de surveillance exploitant des technologies de haute précision. La connaissance détaillée de l'histoire du volcan depuis 400 000 ans et des paramètres caractérisant l'état actuel de repos permettra de prévoir, avec le maximum de fiabilité, l'évolution d'une crise éventuelle et les risques encourus par la population. Cherchant en premier lieu l'information du public sur les moyens mis en oeuvre pour sa protection, ce document peut également être exploité avec profit par les enseignants. Son utilisation est tout à fait indiquée lors de l'étude du thème transversal sécurité des programmes des collèges. Il permet en outre d'illustrer l'enregistrement et l'interprétation d'un séisme, le volcanisme explosif, les relations entre tectonique globale, sismicité et volcanisme dans un arc insulaire
