The age of Obama : the changing place of minorities in British and American society by Tom Clark( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume asks how two very different societies are responding to the tide of diversity that is being felt around the rich world. The authors mix social and scientific rigor with accessible charts in order to argue that injustice still blight lives of many U.K. and U.S. minorities -- particularly African Americans. They maintain that there are signs the new diversity strains community life and they feel that in both countries, public opinion is running irreversibly in favor of tolerance. That bodes well for the future -- and suggests a future British leader like the U.S.'s Barack Obama cannot be ruled out
Hard times : the divisive toll of the economic slump by Tom Clark( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 1,070 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"2008 was a watershed year for global finance. The banking system was eventually pulled back from the brink, but the world was saddled with the worst slump since the 1930s Depression, and millions were left unemployed. While numerous books have addressed the financial crisis, very little has been written about its social consequences. Journalist Tom Clark draws on the research of a transatlantic team led by Professors Anthony Heath and Robert D. Putnam to determine the great recession's toll on individuals, families, and community bonds in the United States and the United Kingdom. The ubiquitous metaphor of the crisis has been an all-encompassing "financial storm," but Clark argues that the data tracks the narrow path of a tornado--destroying some neighborhoods while leaving others largely untouched. In our vastly unequal societies, disproportionate suffering is being meted out to the poor--and the book's new analysis suggests that the scars left by unemployment and poverty will linger long after the economy recovers."--Publisher's description

Hard times : inequality, recession, aftermath by Tom Clark( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"2008 was a watershed year for global finance. The banking system was eventually pulled back from the brink, but the world was saddled with the worst slump since the 1930s Depression, and millions were left unemployed. While numerous books have addressed the financial crisis, very little has been written about its social consequences. Journalist Tom Clark draws on the research of a transatlantic team led by Professors Anthony Heath and Robert D. Putnam to determine the great recession's toll on individuals, families, and community bonds in the United States and the United Kingdom. The ubiquitous metaphor of the crisis has been an all-encompassing financial storm, but Clark argues that the data tracks the narrow path of a tornado - destroying some neighborhoods while leaving others largely untouched. In our vastly unequal societies, disproportionate suffering is being meted out to the poor - and the book's new analysis suggests that the scars left by unemployment and poverty will linger long after the economy recovers. Politicians on both sides of the Atlantic have shown more interest in exploiting the divisions of opinion ushered in by the slump than in grappling with these problems. But this hard-hitting analysis provides a wake-up call that all should heed"--Publisher's description
