One question the authors address: Do network projections based on increasingly sophisticated techniques for "calling" election outcomes well before polls close affect results? At no time has this question been more in the forefront of public consciousness than in the wake of the 2000 presidential election. The Langs draw on their own highly detailed study of voter reactions to election news to assess its effect on turnout, on political attitudes, on candidate strategies, and on legislative initiatives." "As a model of how to study communication effects, this highly readable volume will interest decision makers and analysts, as well as students of journalism, broadcasting, political behavior, and voters looking ahead to the next election."--Jacket
Out of the question : women, media and the art of inquiry( Visual )

3 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thelma Ehrlich Anderson, Joan Doris Goldhamer, Gladys Engel Lang, Thelma Herman McCormack, and Yole Granata Sills were among dozens if not scores of women who had an important hand in establishing media and communications research as fields of inquiry in the 1930s and 1940s. These women have generally dropped from view, in histories that emphasize the more famous men they worked with or for, including Robert Park, Ernest Burgess, Paul Lazarsfeld, Robert K. Merton, and C. Wright Mills. This larger group of women ranged from those who earned doctorates and wrote important books or articles; through research associates given independent research tasks and sometimes garnering second authorship, to interviewers, coders, stenotypists, and secretaries. More generally, they give us a sense of what it was like to come of age as college-educated women among what has been called "the greatest generation."

Resistance and support for school desegregation proposals : a study of parental reactions in Rochester by Gladys Engel Lang( Book )

2 editions published in 1967 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The failure of the Rochester School Board in March 1967 to adopt a comprehensive program of school desegregation surprised many observers. On February 1, 1967, Superintendent Goldberg broadcast four desegregation plans to the public, and on March 16, 1967 the school board voted three to two against all four desegregation plans and adopted instead a plan of increased open enrollment coupled with compensatory education in the inner-city schools. A few weeks after the plans had been made public, the center research team sent a mail questionnaire to all parents previously interviewed. Of 421 parents, 106 answered the mail questionnaire. Parents were asked about (1) their exposure to the public presentations of the four plans; (2) the degree of their participation in the discussion that followed; (3) how informed they were about the plans; and (4) their attitudes toward school desegregation per se and toward the four plans. In what follows, we first include summaries of four plans presented to the school board, then present the relevant findings from an intensive interview study of 421 Rochester parents undertaken in the fall of 1966 and a followup mail questionnaire meant to tap responses of these parents to the plans presented to the board at the beginning of that month, pointing out, wherever possible, the implications of what we have found.
