Farewell to the party of Lincoln : Black politics in the age of FDR by Nancy J Weiss ( Book )
13 editions published between 1983 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines a remarkable political phenomenon -- the dramatic shift of black voters from the Republican to the Democratic party in the 1930s, a shift all the more striking in light of the Democrats' indifference to racial concerns. Nancy J. Weiss shows that blacks became Democrats in response to the economic benefits of the New Deal and that they voted for Franklin Roosevelt in spite of the New Deal's lack of a substantive record on race. - Jacket flap

Higher education the role of research ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Using a combination of film clips of campus life and scenes, economic graphs, and short interviews, the program discusses the changing role of college teachers in recent years. Tenure-track faculty members often work 50 to 60 hours per week and feel great pressure to obtain research grants and to publish extensively. The rising cost of college education and the perception that the increased emphasis on research has come at the expense of undergraduate teaching have reopened an old debate. Although there are many kinds of research and most research enhances teaching, legislatures, students parents and the general public insist that faculty members must balance the time and attention paid to teaching and research, find better ways to evaluate teaching effectiveness, and design performance measures that will ensure accountability
