War on crime : bandits, G-men, and the politics of mass culture by Claire Bond Potter( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"War on Crime revises the history of the New Deal transformation and suggests a new model for political historyone which recognizes that cultural phenomena and the political realm produce, between them, an idea of "the state." The war on crime was fought with guns and pens, movies and legislation, radio and government hearings. All of these methods illuminate this period of state transformation and perceptions of that emergent state, in the years of the first New Deal. The study of the creation of G-men and gangsters as cultural heroes in this period not only explores the Depression-era obsession with crime and celebrity, but it also lends insight on how citizens understood a nation undergoing large political and social changes."--Jacket
Doing recent history : on privacy, copyright, video games, institutional review boards, activist scholarship, and history that talks back( Book )

11 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Despite this rich tradition and growing popularity, historians have engaged in little discussion about the specific methodological, political, and ethical issues related to writing about the recent past. The twelve essays in this collection explore the challenges of writing histories of recent events where visibility is inherently imperfect, hindsight and perspective are lacking, and historiography is underdeveloped"--

It was the year of the Beatles and the Civil Rights Act; of the Gulf of Tonkin and Barry Goldwater's presidential campaign; the year that cities across the country erupted in violence and Americans tried to make sense of the Kennedy assassination. Based on The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964 by award-winning journalist Jon Margolis, this film follows some of the most prominent figures of the time - Lyndon B. Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Barry Goldwater, Betty Friedan - and brings out from the shadows the actions of ordinary Americans whose frustrations, ambitions and anxieties began to turn the country onto a new and different course. This film is part 1 of an interview with historian Claire Bond Potter

Guarding the crossroads : the FBI's war on crime in the 1930's by Claire Bond Potter( )

The dissertation is a study of the United States Justice Department's war on crime as a federal political intervention which had a significant impact on attitudes toward criminal behavior in the United States. It centers on an analysis of bandit crime in the southwest and Great Plains and the decision made by members of the Roosevelt administration to define the structure, function and public image of the Bureau in opposition, not to criminal syndicate bosses but to John Dillinger, "Ma" Barker, and "Pretty Boy" Floyd. These bandits assumed certain mythic qualities in an emerging national mass culture: they were rebellious individuals who became representative of community values and privileges that were under attack by the economic crisis and by New Deal solutions. As a part of the war on crime, J. Edgar Hoover and Bureau strategists created an opposing myth, the G-Man. Laying claim to heroic status in many of the same ways as bandits, G-Men were nevertheless located in a moral framework that safeguarded community values through conformity--not through difference. As the G-Man's public image emerged bandits responded, and were interpreted by the media, in new ways. Increasingly, bandits and G-Men constructed each other in the 1930's. Through this lens, the dissertation examines the politics of heroic behavior in Depression America, the creation of the Bureau of Investigation as an allegory for American community, and the role of myth in the statebuilding process
