Black Brooklyn: The Politics of Ethnicity, Class and Gender, is a story about the oldest, largest, most diverse Black urban community in North America. With a million people in nine communities and nearly a half million voters, it has impacted county, State and national elections and public policy. This work analyzes Black Brooklyn along the lines of its ethnic similarities and differences; socio-economic class, gender and intergenerational dynamics; and other internal and external influences. Using historical analysis, elite interviews and election and demographic analysis, this work shows how these factors influence the political behaviors of African Americans and Caribbean Americans: who they vote for (candidate choice); their levels of political participation (voter turnout); and why, they vote the way they do. Soon, 80 percent of the world population will reside in cities, largely of color. Better understanding urban democracies, their people, politics and governance is a key to sustainable cities of the future. This Black Brooklyn study provides a solid path to the future. Visit

Contesting Islam Constructing Race and Sexuality

The current political standoffs of the 'War on Terror' illustrate that the interaction within and between the so-called Western and Middle Eastern civilizations is constantly in flux. A recurring theme however is how Islam and Muslims signify the 'Enemy' in the Western socio-cultural imagination and have become the 'Other' against which the West identifies itself. In a unique and insightful blend of critical race, feminist and post-colonial theory, Sunera Thobani examines how Islam is foundational to the formation of Western identity at critical points in its history, including the Crusades, the Reconquista and the colonial period. More specifically, she explores how masculinity and femininity are formed at such pivotal junctures and what role feminism has played in the wars against 'radical' Islam. Exposing these symbiotic relationships, Thobani explores how the return of 'religion' is reworking the racial, gender and sexual politics by which Western society defines itself, and more specifically, defines itself against Islam. Contesting Islam, Constructing Race and Sexuality unpacks conventional as well as unconventional orthodoxies to open up new spaces in how we think about sexual and racial identity in the West and the crucial role that Islam has had and continues to have in its development.

Claims of ideology's end are, on the one hand, performative denials of ideology's inability to end; while, on the other hand, paradoxically, they also reiterate an idea that 'ending' is simply what all ideologies eventually do. Situating her work around the intersecting publications of Daniel Bell's The End of Ideology (1960) and J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey (1961), Laurie Rodrigues argues that American novels express this paradox through nuanced applications of non-realist strategies, distorting realism in manners similar to ideology's distortions of reality, history, and belief. Reflecting the astonishing cultural variety of this period, The American Novel After Ideology, 1961 - 2000 examines Franny and Zooey, Carlene Hatcher Polite's The Flagellants (1967), Leslie Marmon Silko's Almanac of the Dead (1991), and Philip Roth's The Human Stain (2001) alongside the various discussions around ideology with which they intersect. Each novel's plotless narratives, dissolving subjectivities, and cultural codes organize the texts' peculiar relations to the post-ideological age, suggesting an aesthetic return of the repressed.

Black suffrage was a crucial and volatile issue in the North during the Civil War era. In The Politics of Race in New York, Phyllis F. Field studies the development of racial policies in the Empire State. Asserting that it is not possible to understand the move toward black suffrage by examining national trends and the actions of individual politicians, she takes a close look at the social context of reform. Field assesses popular reaction to the idea of black suffrage by systematically analyzing the results of a series of referenda on the issue held in New York State between 1846 and 1869. Tracing the relation between changes in public opinion and the positions taken by political parties, Field concludes that party leaders tried both to express the views of their constituents and to mold those views so as to strengthen and unify their own political organizations. Inevitably, this intrusion of political considerations in the issue of race had long-term consequences for the process of social change in the United States. The Politics of Race in New York shows clearly how, in 1870, black suffrage could be achieved even though the battle for black equality had yet to begin.

Voter Mobilization and the Politics of Race

This study of the expansion of the Southern electorate between 1952 and 1984 is reminiscent of William R. Keech's The Impact of Negro Voting in its use of empirical data and in its rigorous analysis that punctures myths and conventional wisdom about the consequences of increased voter participation. . . . Despite its methodological sophistication and pervasive quantitative analysis, the text is sufficiently comprehensible for its arguments and findings to be of interest to general readers. Chioce Stanley analyzes the accepted understanding of what happened in the South, which is that increased black political participation triggered racial counter-mobilization by whites. He finds this understanding to be inadequate. He contends that easier registration did facilitate black participation, yet racial countermobilization had almost no importance for increased white participation. Using presidential election survey data from 1952 to 1984, Stanley establishes why Southern turnout, both white and black, rose. He demonstrates how partisan competition, socioeconomic conditions, media usage, and other factors facilitated registration and voting. Indivuduals studying state and local government, civil rights, Southern politics, or political parties and elections will surely gain important information and invaluable insight from this book.

Sponsored by the American Educational Research Association In this completely revised edition of the Handbook of Research on Educational Administration, distinguished scholars draw from recent and classic studies to offer cross-disciplinary views of the most important research in K-12 education. They address the challenges that school leaders and policymakers face, the pressures that bear on their work, and the issues that they must address in order to create successful schools and districts. This comprehensive reference shows how organizational and leadership theory and practice have not only influenced, but responded to systemic changes in education--ranging from theories of learning to changing student demographics. The contributors are among the most respected researchers and thinkers in the field of educational leadership and administration. In twenty-four chapters, they examine the individual, organizational, and institutional dimensions of leadership--especially as they relate to changing views of teaching and learning, new forms of school organization and governance, and shifting trAnds in the social and community climate. The authors also pay particular attention to the changing roles and responsibilities of school administrators and the vital task of preparing new professionals for the field. Their explorations set the agAnda for future research and policy development. The Handbook of Research on Educational Administration is a vital reference for scholars, researchers, administrators, and graduate students who want to learn the fundamentals and latest findings in educational administration.

A wealth of qualitative data concerning urban districts and their school superintendents in the United States is contained in this book. Theodore J Kowalski examines the lives of 17 urban school superintendents focusing on their problems and aspirations. Of particular significance is the discussion of how factors such as community environment, organizational change and culture, and the person in the job combine to influence decision-making and administrative behaviour.
