Louis D. Brandeis : justice for the people by Philippa Strum( Book )

20 editions published between 1984 and 1989 in English and held by 1,235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Review text: A truly distinguished work on Brandeis that at last will portray the man in all his magnificent range and versatility, as well as his humanity and intellectual qualities... A major contribution to American biography and history... Strum has obviously written this from her heart as well as from her head, and the combination of approaches, so peculiarly appropriate for Brandeis, gives a sense of vitality and consequence to almost every page of the book. I expect it will take its place as the major work on Brandeis for years to come

Women in the barracks : the VMI case and equal rights by Philippa Strum( Book )

5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 906 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Women in the Barracks is a case study that combines both legal and cultural history, reviewing the long history of male elitism in the military as it explores how new ideas about gender equality have developed in the United States. An engrossing story of change versus tradition, it is clear and accessible for general readers, yet highly instructive and valuable for students and scholars. As questions continue to evolve concerning the role of state funding for single-sex education, Strum's book squarely addresses competing notions of women's place and capabilities in American society."--Jacket

The women are marching : the second sex and the Palestinian revolution by Philippa Strum( Book )

9 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Interweaving the first comprehensive account of the Palestinian feminist movement with the diary of her experiences as an American Jew living with a Palestinian family in the West Bank, political scientist and human rights activist Philippa Strum tells a dramatic story that virtually all of the international media have ignored. In just five years Palestinian women have not only overcome centuries of isolation, dependence, and repressive gender roles, but they have emerged--and will remain--a key force behind the popular struggle known as the intifada and a significant threat to Israeli control over the occupied territories. Before the onset of the intifada in 1987, most Palestinian women rarely left their homes, and could do so only if escorted by a female relative. They could not divorce their husbands, and if a Palestinian woman was sexually harassed or abused, she was ostracized from the community and could even be killed. Three months after the intifada began, with no recourse to law or redress in the face of the arrests, the beatings, the torture, and the shootings by the Israeli military, Palestinian women took to the streets, holding more than one hundred marches a week. Led by the women's committees that were formed in the late 1970s, they have since gone on to create an entire social and economic infrastructure to end Palestinian reliance on Israel. In their march toward equality, they are enforcing strike days and boycotts of Israeli products, providing underground health care, building agricultural cooperatives and small-scale industries, opening alternative schools, and smuggling food to communities under curfew. The extent to which the massive transformation in the lives of Palestinian women will endure once independence is achieved remains a question. As long as the occupation lasts, Strum asserts, meaningful reform--whether in gender equality, politics, or economics--will fail to reach fruition in both the occupied territories and Israel. Nevertheless, as she concludes in one of the most gripping accounts of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict written to date, Palestinian women will never return to their traditional status, and they hold out the promise of profound change in the Middle East

Speaking freely : Whitney v. California and American speech law by Philippa Strum( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anita Whitney was a child of wealth and privilege who became a vocal leftist early in the twentieth century, supporting radical labor groups such as the Wobblies and helping to organize the Communist Labor Party. In 1919 she was arrested and charged with violating California's recently passed laws banning any speech or activity intended to change the American political and economic systems. The story of the Supreme Court case that grew out of Whitney's conviction, told in full in this book, is also the story of how Americans came to enjoy the most liberal speech laws in the world. In clear and engaging language, noted legal scholar Philippa Strum traces the fateful interactions of Whitney, a descendant of Mayflower Pilgrims; Supreme Court Justice Louis D. Brandeis, a brilliant son of immigrants; the teeming immigrant neighborhoods and left wing labor politics of the early twentieth century; and the lessons some Harvard Law School professors took from World War I-era restrictions on speech. Though the Supreme Court upheld Whitney's conviction, it included an opinion by Justice Brandeis--joined by Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.--that led to a decisive change in the way the Court understood First Amendment free speech protections. Speaking Freely takes us into the discussions behind this dramatic change, as Holmes, Brandeis, Judge Learned Hand, and Harvard Law professors Zechariah Chafee and Felix Frankfurter debate the extent of the First Amendment and the important role of free speech in a democratic society. In Brandeis's opinion, we see this debate distilled in a statement of the value of free speech and the harm that its suppression does to a democracy, along with reflections on the importance of freedom from government control for the founders and the drafters of the First Amendment. Through Whitney v. California and its legacy, Speaking Freely shows how the American approach to speech, differing as it does that of every other country, reflects the nation's unique history. Nothing less than a primer in the history of free speech rights in the US, the book offers a sobering and timely lesson as fear once more raises the specter of repression"--
Privacy, the debate in the United States since 1945 by Philippa Strum( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume argues that privacy was built into the Constitution as originally written and into the Bill of Rights. [The book examines] governmental interference with privacy [and] the extent to which the government has as obligation to protect citizens from violations of their privacy by other citizens - as in the maintenance of computer data banks by private companies. [The book also looks at the] leaps in technology that gave us television, computers, and governmental ability to monitor citizens' lives; [and] concerns about national security as the United States entered the Cold War ...-Introd
