News for all the people : the epic story of race and the American media by Juan González( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,166 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."--Jacket
Fallout : the environmental consequences of the World Trade Center collapse by Juan González( Book )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and Japanese and held by 665 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
Reclaiming Gotham : Bill de Blasio and the movement to end America's tale of two cities by Juan González( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In November 2013, a little-known progressive stunned the elite of New York City by capturing the mayoralty by a landslide. Bill de Blasio's promise to end the "Tale of Two Cities" had struck a chord among ordinary residents still struggling to recover from the Great Recession. De Blasio's election heralded the advent of the most progressive New York City government in generations. Not since the legendary Fiorello La Guardia in the 1930s had so many populist candidates captured government office at the same time. Gotham, in other words, had been suddenly reclaimed in the name of its people. How did this happen? De Blasio's victory, journalist legend Juan González argues, was not just a routine change of government but a popular rebellion against corporate-friendly policies that had dominated New York for decades. Reflecting that broader change, liberal Democrats Bill Peduto in Pittsburgh, Betsy Hodges in Minneapolis, and Martin Walsh of Boston also won mayoral elections that same year, as did insurgent Ras Baraka in Newark the following year. This new generation of municipal leaders offers valuable lessons for those seeking grassroots reform."--Publisher's description
Roll down your window : stories of a forgotten America by Juan González( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 277 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."

Presente! : Latin@ Immigrant Voices In The Struggle For Racial Justice / Voces Inmigranted Latin@S En La Lucha Por La Justicia Racial by Juan González( )

1 edition published in 2014 in Spanish and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Read the media coverage of the increasingly heated debate around immigration reform in the United States: two dominant narratives emerge. From Lou Dobbs to Sean Hannity, commentators on the right have crafted an image rooted in fear, demonizing undocumented immigrants as a threat to national security and raising the specter of a deliberate "browning of America." Left-leaning journalists, on the other hand, foreground victimization, emphasizing the plight of immigrants, stripping them of their agency. Neither captures the range of experiences within undocumented immigrant communities, and both fail to see immigrants as active participants in their own struggle for racial and economic justice. Presente! offers a rare perspective on the immigrant-rights movement, written by immigrant workers themselves. Including a range of essays exploring the intersection of race, class, and immigration in the United States, this anthology challenges its readers to move beyond a "legalization-only" framework and embrace a broader vision for social justice organizing embodied in the work of grassroots organizations across the country resisting state repression, cultivating solidarity, and building alternative models for progressive social change. Offered in a dual-language edition, with a foreword by Democracy Now! co-host Juan GonzAles. Cristina TzintzUn is the executive director of Workers Defense Project, a Texas based workers' rights organization. Carlos PErez de Alejo is the executive director of Cooperation Texas, an organization dedicated to the creation of sustainable jobs through the development, support, and promotion of worker-owned cooperatives. Arnulfo ManrIquez is an organizer at Workers Defense Project, where he organizes immigrant construction workers to defend their labor and human rights
