The turning : a history of Vietnam Veterans Against the War by Andrew E Hunt( )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 2,167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Turning, Andrew E. Hunt reclaims the history of the Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW), an organization that transformed the antiwar movement by placing Vietnam veterans in the forefront of the nationwide struggle to end the war. Misunderstood by both authorities and radicals alike, VVAW members were mostly young men who had served in Vietnam and returned profoundly disillusioned with the rationale for the war and with American conduct in Southeast Asia." "Based on extensive interviews and in-depth primary research, including recently declassified government files, The Turning is a vivid history of the men who risked censures, stigma, even imprisonment for a cause they believed to be "an extended tour of duty.""--Jacket

"After a high-profile case thrusts deputy Art Oveson into the spotlight, Salt Lake City's mayor taps him to head the city's Anti-Polygamy Squad.

Historian and Hillerman award-winner, Andrew Hunt returns to 1930s Salt Lake City in a mystery that shows a city and religion struggling to grow and shake off a notorious history that has not yet become a thing of the past"--
David Dellinger : the Life and Times of a Nonviolent Revolutionary by Andrew E Hunt( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year was 1969. In a Chicago courthouse, David Dellinger, one of the Chicago Eight, stood trial for conspiring to disrupt the National Democratic Convention. Dellinger, a long-time but relatively unknown activist, was suddenly, at fifty-three, catapulted into the limelight for his part in this intense courtroom drama. From obscurity to leader of the antiwar movement, David Dellinger is the first full biography of a man who bridged the gap between the Old Left and the New Left. Born in 1915 in the upscale Boston suburb of Wakefield to privilege, Dellinger attended Yale during the Depression
David Dellinger : the life and times of a nonviolent revolutionary by Andrew E Hunt( Book )

11 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Vilified by critics and glorified by supporters, Dellinger was a man of contradictions: a rigid Gandhian who nonetheless supported violent revolutionary movements; a radical thinker and gifted writer forced to work as a baker to feed his large family; and a charismatic leader who taught his followers to distrust all leaders. Along the way, he encountered Eleanor Roosevelt, Ho Chi Minh, Martin Luther King, Jr., the Black Panthers, and all the other major figures of the American Left."--Jacket

City of saints by Andrew E Hunt( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the outside observer, Salt Lake City seems to be the squeaky-clean "City of Saints"?its nickname since Mormon pioneers first arrived. Its wide roads, huge Mormon temple topped by a horn-blowing angel, and orderly neighborhoods give it the appearance of the ideal American city. But looks can be deceiving. When beautiful socialite Helen Kent Pfalzgraf turns up dead, Salt Lake County Deputy Art Oveson?a twenty-something husband, dad, and?devout Mormon?just getting his start?finds himself thrust into the role of detective. With?his partner, a foul-mouthed, vice-ridden former strikebreaker, he begins to pursue Pfalzgraf's murderer?or murderers. Their search takes them into the dark underbelly of Salt Lake City, a place rife with blackmail, corruption, and murder. Throw in a cowardly sheriff seeking reelection, a prominent local physician with a host of skeletons in his closet, and swirling rumors of an affair between the murder victim and an elusive?Hollywood star,?and you've got City of Saints, a mystery based on a true yet largely forgotten murder that once captivated the nation but still remains unsolved?eighty years later

Replacing sound assumptions : rediscovered narratives of post war northern British Columbia by Maureen Atkinson( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a close analysis of a regional public radio archive, this dissertation reveals how residents of northern British Columbia defined their identities, expressed discontent, and revealed their aspirations and expectations for Canadian society. No matter what age, gender, or ethnic affiliation, the people of the region, when studied in a historical framework, challenge and alter previously held historical assumptions about a remote, isolated place, about the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation as a national cultural institution, and about the wider Canadian society during the three decades after the Second World War. The dissertation addresses shifting historical methodologies. It moves away from text-based interpretations of the past to listen closely to the recordings created by the CBC radio station in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, in order to gain further precision as to regional narratives and historical time frames. By doing so, new historical narratives are produced that more accurately reflect both the region and Canada as a whole. This dissertation shows that Canadian identity was tied to larger goals of nation building. The CBC mandate may have promoted such nation building practices, but with mixed results on a regional level. Listening to the recorded voices of northern British Columbia residents encourages us to reconsider historical assumptions about rural regions, national cultural institutions, and the wider Canadian society in the post Second World War era. Indigenous peoples were active listeners, and used the medium of radio to communicate personal messages, political agency and cultural integrity. Women were also active on the air (even though not hired as staff announcers) and they often reflected the localized, sometimes subversive feminist activities. The region's isolation made events there seem distant or unimportant to Canadians, especially during events such as when the Granduc avalanche highlighted the anti-American sentiments and the physical and financial risks of resource development. Although media studies and cultural critiques can assist our understanding of radio archives, historical studies may best express the significance of such events, resulting in a more complete account of the social and temporal context of this important time period
The evolution of white racism and its impacts on black society in America today by Michael Soares( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis examines the historical evolution of racial hierarchies and white racism in American society, and in particular how these ideological frameworks have impacted Black American society. By utilizing a case study approach, in order to fully identify the pervasive nature of white racial and cultural narratives and the ways they have denied Black progress and freedom, the goal is to outline how systemic incorporations of racialized stereotypes within political rhetoric and popular culture have worked to reinforce white racial hierarchies and white cultural paradigms. The three periods examined in this case study are as follows: the Post-Civil War American South, 1960's Civil Rights Era and the modern Hip Hop Generation. Misrepresentations within music, media and sports all too often resemble neo-colonial, paternalistic and racialized myths of the past. While politicians, particularly conservatives, have consistently used racialized messages to fan white fears and gain voter support with reactionary "law and order" rhetoric and by blaming minorities for American socio-economic problems. The criminalization of Blackness in American society is based on white fears, not relative crime rates. Whites, since the collapse of Reconstruction policies in the South, attempted to force Blacks back onto the plantations, railroads and iron mines of the South. Black criminality became the excuse for reinforcing racial hierarchy in American society, convict leasing replaced slavery in the South. Conservative politicians spewed forth racialized rhetoric to disenfranchise Black voters in the South, while lynching and race riots acted as violent methods to reinforce white domination and white racialized notions of Black inferiority. By the 1960s violence became a tool of the agents of the FBI to repress Black Power groups and their attempts to challenge white racial hierarchies in America. However, by the late 60s racism and outright violence became unpopular and new more subtle, more systemic forms of reinforcing racial caste systems and white supremacism in American society were needed. The impacts of deindustrialization, white flight, gerrymandering, rezoning, political marginalization and the elimination of an entire generation of Black leaders needs to be discussed for someone to fully recognize the legacy of white racism. Politicians and popular culture today have come to support racial hierarchies either intentionally or unintentionally by consistently over representing Black criminality and pushing racialized images, that in many ways came eerily similar to Jim Crow representations of Blackness. From Blaxploitation Films to Gangster Rap and Hood Films, this thesis examines how white dominant cultural representations of Black Criminality have become embedded within American popular culture and politics, and how these racialized images and narratives have conditioned American society to accept white supremacist notions of race and crime
The turning : Vietnam Veterans Against the War, 1967 to the present by Andrew E Hunt( )

'The best covered war in history' : intimate perspectives from the battlefields of Iraq by Andrew J McLaughlin( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines combat operations from the 2003 invasion of Iraq War from the "ground up." It utilizes unique first-person accounts that offer insights into the realities of modern warfare which include effects on soldiers, the local population, and journalists who were tasked with reporting on the action. It affirms the value of media embedding to the historian, as hundreds of journalists witnessed major combat operations firsthand. This line of argument stands in stark contrast to other academic assessments of the embedding program, which have criticized it by claiming media bias and military censorship. Here, an examination of the cultural and social dynamics of an army at war provides agency to soldiers, combat reporters, and innocent civilians caught in the crossfire
The British invasion : finding traction in America by Piacentino Vona( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a period of American History, the 1960s has provided historians and academics with a wealth of material for research and scholarship. Presidents John F. Kennedy, Lyndon B. Johnson and Richard Nixon, the Vietnam War, the hippie era, and the Civil Rights Movement, among other topics have received thorough historical discussion and debate. Music was another key aspect in understanding the social history of the 1960s. But unlike the people and events mentioned above, historians have devoted less attention to music in the historical landscape. The British Invasion was one such key event that impacted America in the 1960s. Bands such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Who found their way into the United States and majorly impacted American society. Using secondary sources, newspaper articles, interviews and documentaries on these bands, this thesis explores the British Invasion and its influence in the context of 1960s America. This thesis explores multiple bands that came in the initial wave. It follows these bands from 1964-1969, and argues that the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and the Who shared common multiple factors that allowed them to attain the traction to succeed and to maintain that success in the United States. Referred to as the Big Three throughout the thesis, these three bands managed to enjoy success on a level previously unprecedented for British bands or singers through influential managers, era-defining hits, use of television and film, master songwriters, evolution of their music, and their staying power. All these factors, combined, allowed the them to succeed in America. In contrast, not every British Invasion band was as fortunate, as Gerry and the Pacemakers, the Yardbirds, the Animals, the Zombies, and the Dave Clark Five failed to maintain success in America after their initial hit songs. Regardless, the British Invasion had a lasting impact on music in the United States and helped usher in the era of Classic Rock
John F. Kennedy & the ascendancy of U.S. counterinsurgency doctrine by Ryan Van Koughnett( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The formation of a coherent counterinsurgency policy in the United States is often attributed to the administration of President John F. Kennedy. Indeed, through his own personal fascination and promotion of the subject, Kennedy infused funding and expertise into a steadily expanding counterinsurgency apparatus. However, American counterinsurgency doctrine was implanted deeply within military and intelligence institutions and government bureaucracy long before the Camelot era. American conquest by counterinsurgency has a long legacy. The Founding Fathers for Kennedy (to whom this tradition belongs) were Andrew Jackson, William Sherman, William McKinley, Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. As this study argues, periods of American expansion have always been based on principles of anti-civilian warfare. The history of the United States is one of expansion and primitive accumulation - a process facilitated by methods promoted by presidents spanning the last two centuries

In the summer of 1938, as war clouds loom overseas, auto racers from around the world gather at the Bonneville Salt Flats west of Salt Lake City, intent on breaking the land-speed record. But when Clive Underhill, a wealthy English motorist, mysteriously disappears and his younger brother, Nigel, is found dead, Art Oveson of the Salt Lake City Missing Persons Bureau is called to investigate. Suddenly, Art's best friend and former partner, Roscoe Lund, becomes the number-one suspect in Nigel's murder, prompting Art to follow a murky trail involving homegrown fascists, bigoted ex-cops, a string of homicides, and a German auto racer with a mysterious past. And, through it all, FBI Agent Frank Oveson tries to prevent his "kid brother" Art from discovering dark truths that may threaten his life. Tony Hillerman Prize-winning author and historian Andrew Hunt transports us to 1930s Salt Lake City in Desolation Flats, this engrossing, detailed mystery that shows what goes on behind the scenes in the supposedly clean-cut Mormon capital
