Burning the flag : the great 1989-1990 American flag desecration controversy by Robert Justin Goldstein( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Burning the Flag brings together the disciplines of law, journalism, political science, and history to explain and place the development of the controversy in its full context. It is based on extensive research in legal, congressional, and journalistic sources and on exclusive interviews with nearly 100 of the key players in the dispute, among them flag burners, judges, lawyers and lobbyists on both sides, members of Congress, congressional aides, and journalists. A timely addendum chronicles the late 1995 attempts once again to pass a constitutional amendment on flag desecration, adding to the significance of this readable account. Burning the Flag will be of value to both an academic and a general audience, particularly to civil libertarians, flag buffs, and those interested in popular media, American politics, modern American history, and constitutional law

The frightful stage : political censorship of the theater in nineteenth-century Europe by Robert Justin Goldstein( Book )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In nineteenth-century Europe the ruling elites viewed the theater as a form of communication which had enormous importance. The theater provided the most significant form of mass entertainment and was the only arena aside from the church in which regular mass gatherings were possible. Therefore, drama censorship occupied a great deal of the ruling class's time and energy, with a particularly focus on proposed scripts that potentially threatened the existing political, legal, and social order. This volume provides the first comprehensive examination of nineteenth-century political theater censorship at a time, in the aftermath of the French Revolution, when the European population was becoming increasingly politically active."--Page 4 of cover

Discrediting the Red Scare : the Cold War trials of James Kutcher, "the legless veteran" by Robert Justin Goldstein( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After joining a tiny and insignificant extreme left-wing group, the Socialist Workers Party (SWP), in the 1930s, Kutcher was drafted shortly before American entry into World War II. He saw frequent battle action in North Africa and Italy, and both of his legs were blown off by a German mortar shell during the American invasion of Italy in late 1943. After having both legs amputated and learning to walk with artificial limbs and two canes, Kutcher was hired in 1946 in a menial position as a Veterans Administration (VA) file clerk, with no access to national security information. However, as a result of President Truman's March 1946 federal loyalty program, and more specifically due to the listing of the SWP on the so-called "Attorney General's List of Subversive Organizations" ... in 1948 as seeking the violent overthrow of the government, Kutcher was fired from his VA position. Subsequently ... the government also sought to take away Kutcher's World War II disability pension and to evict him (and his ill and aged parents, whom he supported) from their federally subsidized public housing unit in Newark, New Jersey. ... Kutcher described the decision he made to fight his case to the end as one he preferably would never have had to make ... . In the end, Kutcher won all of the fights for his rights, and in doing so helped to expose some of the worse abuses of the Red Scare."--Preface, page ix-xi
Little "red scares" : anti-communism and political repression in the United States, 1921-1946 by Robert Justin Goldstein( Book )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By focusing on this twenty-five year 'interim' period, the essays in this collection bridge the gap between the two high-profile 'red scares' thus offering a much more contextualised and fluid narrative for American anti-communism. In so doing the rationale and motivations for the 'red scares' can be seen as part of an evolving political landscape, rather than as isolated bouts of hysteria exploding onto - and then vanishing from - the political scene. Instead, a much more nuanced appreciation of the conflicting interests and fears of government, politicians, organised labour, free-speech advocates, employers, and the press is offered, which will be of interest to anyone wishing to better understand the political history of modern America.--Provided by publisher
Political censorship of the visual arts in nineteenth-century Europe : arresting images( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume provides the reader with a comprehensive summary of the latest findings available on the subject of nineteenth-century continental European censorship of the image. This volume consists of six essays by specialists in the history and art of France, Germany, Russia, Italy, and the Habsburg Empire. The essays deal with the applicable laws, the bureaucratic mechanisms for enforcement, the guidelines and purpose behind the censorship, the means and success of evasion and resistance, and the impact on those directly affected by censorship, such as authors, theater, and directors, as well as the broader society. Although most scholarship on political censorship has focused on the printed word, such as books and newspapers, there is considerable evidence that nineteenth-century European authorities especially feared the impact of visual imagery and censored such materials both more intensively and for longer time periods than was the case with print. This volume is the most comprehensive ever published on nineteenth-century continental European censorship of the image in any language
