The pleasure police : how bluenose busybodies and lily-livered alarmists are taking all the fun out of life by David Shaw( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 457 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this passionate, erudite, and provocative book, Leon Botstein, president of Bard College and director of the American Symphony Orchestra, takes on the cultural pessimists who he believes are harming our youth and damaging our democracy. "Most of our fellow citizens believe that yesterday things were better. Even those born during the 1950s romanticize the past. There is little optimism about tomorrow." Such relentless and unjustified pessimism, Botstein argues, becomes a barrier to a hopeful future. In fact, he demonstrates persuasively, America is a much better, stronger culture than it has ever been. Much work needs to be done, especially in raising and teaching our kids, but the most important element is instilling in them a sense of American society as a vibrant, forward-looking culture of possibility. Crucially, Botstein offers concrete solutions that can be pursued by citizens, schools, colleges, and the government. Schools can be restructured to reflect the realities of modern childhood; they can be turned into 24-hour learning centers to serve the entire community; parents can help their children by taking simple steps - learning how children think and trying to think like them, fostering their imaginative powers, and encouraging them to engage in the wider world

Breaking the blacklist( Recording )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Documentary exploring blacklisting in the entertainment industry in the U.S. in the 1940's and 1950's: how it worked, how it affected people, how it was broken, and the current wave of interest in the blacklist. Also looks at the blacklist and its links not only to established right-wing figures such as Senator Joseph McCarthy (R-WI) and Richard Nixon - then a California congressman, but also to the cold-war policies of Harry Truman and Dean Acheson. Through interviews with formerly blacklisted people and their lawyers, this program explores the pain and frustration of the blacklist, and the strategies devised by the victims for survival. Numerous Hollywood actors, writers, and composers, are heard. Produced by WBAI with assistance from KPFK
