"Naval aviator Jeremiah Denton was captured in North Vietnam in 1965. As a POW, Jerry Denton led a group of fellow American prisoners in withstanding gruesome conditions behind enemy lines. They developed a system of secret codes and covert communications to keep up their spirits. Later, he would endure long periods of solitary confinement. Always, Jerry told his fellow POWs that they would one day return home together. Although Jerry spent seven and a half years as a POW, he did finally return home in 1973 after the longest and harshest deployment in U.S. history."--Provided by publisher.

A history of the new India : past and present

Mughal devolution and the Deccan -- Mughal devolution in Bengal and South India -- The path to company sovereignty in India, 1756-1801 -- Creating a ruling strategy, 1770-1830 -- Reform and rebellion : resistance to becoming a subject -- Moral reform and self-discipline -- New identities, new demands.
"Providing a different approach to the history of India than previously advocated, this textbook argues that there was a constant interaction between peoples and cultures. This interactive, dialogic approach provides a clear understanding of how power and social relations operated in South Asia. Covering the history of India from Mughal times to the first years of independence, the book consists of chapters divided roughly between political and thematic questions. Topics discussed include: Mughal warfare and military developments; the construction of Indian culture; Indian, regional and local political articulation; India's independence and the end of British Rule; the growth of the Hindu Right; the dispute over Kashmir; as well as a detailed timeline that provides a useful overview to key events in the history of India. A set of background reading is included after each chapter for readers who wish to go beyond the remit of this text. Written in an accessible, narrative style, the textbook will be suitable in courses on Indian and South Asian History, as well as courses on World History and South Asian Studies. Eugene F. Irschick is professor of history at University of California, Berkeley. In his research and published works, such as Dialogue and History : Constructing South India, 1795-1895 (1994), he suggests that the production of history and political structures is dialogic. He has been teaching courses on Indian history at UC Berkeley for 16 years. Much of the time during his early teaching years was focused on minority and separatist politics in south India during the 20th century. Recently, he has been teaching courses on women's history in South Asia as well as courses on post-colonialism"--Provided by publisher.

Messengers of the Right : conservative media and the transformation of American politics

March 25, 2019
Hemmer, Nicole, author.
xvi, 320 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm.
Part I. Networks. The outsiders ; The outlets ; The obstacles -- Part II. Leaders. The movement ; The millstone ; The muzzle -- Part III. Elections. The purists ; The partisans ; The pivot -- Part IV. Adaptions. The compromise ; The contraction ; The comeback.
From Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity to Glenn Beck and Matt Drudge, Americans are accustomed to thinking of right-wing media as integral to contemporary conservatism. But today's well-known personalities make up the second generation of broadcasting and publishing activists. Beginning in the late 1940s, activists working in media emerged as leaders of the American conservative movement. They not only started an array of enterprises -- publishing houses, radio programs, magazines, book clubs, television shows -- they also built the movement. They coordinated rallies, founded organizations, ran political campaigns, and mobilized voters. While these media activists disagreed profoundly on tactics and strategy, they shared a belief that political change stemmed not just from ideas but from spreading those ideas through openly ideological communications channels. Nicole Hemmer explains how conservative media became the institutional and organizational nexus of the conservative movement, transforming audiences into activists and activists into a reliable voting base. Hemmer also explores how the idea of liberal media bias emerged, why conservatives have been more successful at media activism than liberals, and how the right remade both the Republican Party and American news media. Broadcaster Clarence Manion, book publisher Henry Regnery, and magazine publisher William Rusher evolved from frustrated outsiders in search of a platform into leaders of one of the most significant and successful political movements of the twentieth century.

Gray day : my undercover mission to expose America's first cyber spy

"A cybersecurity expert and former FBI "ghost" tells the thrilling story of how he helped take down notorious FBI mole Robert Hanssen, the first Russian cyber spy. Eric O'Neill was only twenty-six when he was tapped for the case of a lifetime: a one-on-one undercover investigation of the FBI's top target, a man suspected of spying for the Russians for nearly two decades, giving up nuclear secrets, compromising intelligence, and betraying US assets. With zero training in face-to-face investigation, Eric found himself in a windowless, high-security office in the newly formed Information Assurance Section, tasked officially with helping the FBI secure its outdated computer system against hackers and spies--and unofficially with collecting evidence against his new boss, Robert Hanssen, an exacting and rage-prone veteran agent with a disturbing fondness for handguns. In the months that follow, Eric's self-esteem and young marriage unravel under the pressure of life in Room 9930, and he questions the very purpose of his mission. But as Hanssen outmaneuvers an intelligence community struggling to keep up with the new reality of cybersecurity, he also teaches Eric the game of spycraft. Eric will just have to learn to outplay his teacher if he wants to win. A tension-packed stew of power, paranoia, and psychological manipulation, Gray Day is also a cautionary tale of how the United States allowed Russia to become dominant in cyberespionage--and how we might begin to catch up"-- Provided by publisher.

Biased : uncovering the hidden prejudice that shapes what we see, think, and do

March 22, 2019
Eberhardt, Jennifer L. (Jennifer Lynn), author.
New York : Viking, [2019]
340 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
You don't have to be racist to be biased. Unconscious bias can be at work without our realizing it, and even when we genuinely wish to treat all people equally, ingrained stereotypes can infect our visual perception, attention, memory, and behavior. This has an impact on education, employment, housing, and criminal justice. In Biased, with a perspective that is at once scientific, investigative, and informed by personal experience, Jennifer Eberhardt offers us insights into the dilemma and a path forward. Eberhardt works extensively as a consultant to law enforcement and as a psychologist at the forefront of this new field. Her research takes place in courtrooms and boardrooms, in prisons, on the street, and in classrooms and coffee shops. She shows us the subtle--and sometimes dramatic--daily repercussions of implicit bias in how teachers grade students, or managers deal with customers. It has an enormous impact on the conduct of criminal justice, from the rapid decisions police officers have to make to sentencing practices in court. Eberhardt's work and her book are both influenced by her own life, and the personal stories she shares emphasize the need for change. She has helped companies that include Airbnb and Nextdoor address bias in their business practices and has led anti-bias initiatives for police departments across the country. Here, she offers practical suggestions for reform and new practices that are useful for organizations as well as individuals. Unblinking about the tragic consequences of prejudice, Eberhardt addresses how racial bias is not the fault of nor restricted to a few "bad apples" but is present at all levels of society in media, education, and business. The good news is that we are not hopelessly doomed by our innate prejudices. In Biased, Eberhardt reminds us that racial bias is a human problem--one all people can play a role in solving.

Deep creativity : seven ways to spark your creative spirit

March 22, 2019
Quibell, Deborah Anne, author.
Boulder : Shambhala, 2019.
xi, 340 pages ; 23 cm
"Creative expression has increasingly become a prized component in many of our life's endeavors; in fact, there are many paths to instilling and nourishing creativity. The three authors of Deep Creativity distil these paths down to the 7 Ways to creativity: The Way of Love, The Way of Nature, The Way of the Muse, The Way of Suffering, The Way of Practice, The Way of the Sacred, and The Way of Art; and invite the reader to explore each for themselves. The authors show how the 7 Ways have informed their own creative process and provide reflective and practical exercises on each. Grounded in Jungian psychology, Deep Creativity offers practical guidance for getting in touch with your own unconscious reservoir as well as engaging your everyday world to deepen the source of creative expression. Wherever one is on the creative path--a beginner or established creative--this book offers not only practical workbook-like exercises but is also a contemplation on the creative process itself. The result is a highly resourceful book, which will not only inspire the creative process, but also uniquely contribute to our understanding of creativity as a deeply human and embodied endeavor"-- Provided by publisher.

The U.S. Supreme Court : a very short introduction

March 22, 2019
Greenhouse, Linda.
Oxford ; New York : Oxford University Press, ©2012.
126 pages : illustrations, portraits ; 18 cm.
Origins -- The court at work (1) -- The justices -- The chief justice -- The court at work (2) -- The court and the other branches -- The court and the public -- The court and the world -- U.S. Constitution, Article III -- The Supreme Court's rules -- Chart of the justices.
For 30 years, the author, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist chronicled the activities of the U.S. Supreme Court and its justices as a correspondent for the New York Times. In this introduction, she draws on her knowledge of the court's history and of its written and unwritten rules to show how the Supreme Court really works. She offers an institutional biography of a place and its people, men and women who exercise great power but whose names and faces are unrecognized by many Americans and whose work often appears cloaked in mystery. How do cases get to the Supreme Court? How do the justices go about deciding them? What special role does the chief justice play? What do the law clerks do? How does the court relate to the other branches of government? The author answers these questions by depicting the justices as they confront deep constitutional issues or wrestle with the meaning of confusing federal statutes. Throughout, the author examines many individual Supreme Court cases to illustrate points under discussion, ranging from Marbury v. Madison, the seminal case which established judicial review, to the recent District of Columbia v. Heller (2008), which struck down the District of Columbia's gun-control statute and which was, surprisingly, the first time in its history that the Court issued an authoritative interpretation of the Second Amendment. To add perspective, she also compares the Court to foreign courts, revealing interesting differences. For instance, no other country in the world has chosen to bestow life tenure on its judges.

"A raw, unflinching, and inspirational memoir by a former United States Marine Captain describing her journey from dutiful daughter of immigrants to wide-eyed recruit to radical activist dedicated to effecting historic policy reform in the military. After a lifetime of buckling to the demands of her strict Indian parents, Anuradha Bhagwati abandons her grad school career at Harvard University to join the Marines. It's the fiercest, most violent, most masculine branch of the military: the perfect place for her to prove that she's the ultimate Cool Girl, someone who can brawl with the boys in every sense of the word. Or at least that's what she thinks. From the moment training begins, Anuradha's G.I. Jane fantasy is punctured. As a bisexual woman of color in the military, she faces adversity and underestimation at every stage, confronting misogyny, racism, abuse, and astonishing injustice perpetrated by those in power. Pushing herself beyond her limits to prove her ability, she is forced to wrestle with what exactly drove her to pursue such punishment and violence in the first place. Once her service concludes in 2004, instead of retreating and putting it all behind her, she decides to do the exact opposite: take to task the leaders and outmoded conventions that she found so objectionable and even dangerous. Full of strength, courage, and heroic resilience, Unbecoming is about one woman who learned to believe in herself in spite of everything; it is the kind of story that will light a fire beneath you, and that will inspire our next generation of fierce female heroes to always persist"-- Provided by publisher.

Apocalypse any day now : deep underground with America's doomsday preppers

March 21, 2019
Krulos, Tea, author.
Chicago, IL : Chicago Review Press, [2019].
236 pages, 8 unnumbered pages of plates : illustrations (chiefly color) ; 22 cm
"It seems like people are always talking about the end of the world, doesn't it? Y2K, the Mayan Apocalypse, Blood Moon Prophecies, nuclear war, killer robots, you name it. In Apocalypse Any Day Now, journalist Tea Krulos travels the country to try to puzzle out America's obsession with the end of days. Along the way he meets doomsday preppers--people who stockpile supplies and learn survival skills--as well as religious prognosticators and climate scientists. He camps out with the Zombie Squad (who use a zombie apocalypse as a survival metaphor); tours the Survival Condos, a luxurious bunker built in an old Atlas missile silo; and attends Wasteland Weekend, where people party like the world has already ended. Frightening and funny, the ideas Krulos explores range from ridiculously outlandish to alarmingly near and present dangers"-- Provided by publisher.

March 20, 2019
Blight, James G., author.
Lanham : Rowman & Littlefield, [2018]
xxi, 253 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
Prologue: Armageddon in retrospect: on the road with Papa & the Boy -- Part 1. Dark -- Shit (almost) happened in October 1962: the struggle to avoid Armageddon involves the struggle of memory against forgetting -- The bullshit: bad guys threaten; good guys stand firm; good guys win; bad guys lose; the little guy doesn't matter; JFK's moxie prevails -- The truth: big guys ignore little guy; feeling doomed, little guy throws caution to the wind, starts shooting, and asks big friend to nuke the U.S.; Armageddon nearly occurs -- Part 2. Darker -- Habitable history: how Hilary Mantel's Wolf Hall became the template for a "WABAC" machine for the Cuban Missile Crisis -- Be Robert McNamara: bringing the abolition message home, with (and without) "maximum Bob" -- Be Fidel Castro: a leader at the hinge of the world -- Darkest -- Armageddon in slow motion: more bullshit and truth about avoiding Armageddon in the 21st century -- Armageddon oops! Nuclear war via mechanical and/or human screw-up -- On the road again via climate catastrophe: from a 19th century volcanic eruption to a 21st century nuclear winter -- The darkness defined and defied (via the lessons of the Cuban Missile Crisis) -- Be anybody WABAC: empathy, not sympathy is the key -- Part 3. Darkness visible: findings, takeaways and imperatives of the Cuban Missile Crisis -- The Black Saturday manifesto: abolishing nuclear weapons one anniversary per year, for as long as it takes -- Epilogue: Show us your darkness: Warning given! Warning received?
"Dark Beyond Darkness is the first book to take readers deeply inside the experience and calculations of leaders during the Cuban Missile Crisis and to connect that crisis to the nuclear risk today, whether from war between superpowers, climate catastrophe following a regional nuclear war or a nuclear conflict sparked by an accident."--Provided by publisher.
