Item Description: Thomas Nelson, 2003. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: For over a hundred years, the New York Times has purported to present straight news and hard facts. But, as Bob Kohn shows with absolute clarity, the founders' original vision has been hijacked, and today, instead of straight news, readers are given mere editorial under the pretense of objective journalism. Kohn shows point by point the methods by which the Times' mission has been subverted by the present management-routinely slanting the presentation of the facts in leads, headlines, and placement; utilizing polls, labels, and loaded language to convey particular views, not genuine news; and staffing the newsroom with hacks who manipulate information to further a leftist agenda. Kohn shows how such fraudulence directly corrupts hundreds of news agencies across the world; and by revealing all their methods of manipulation, he teaches readers how to decipher the slants in even the subtlest of cases, providing an entertaining and enlightening lesson in fraud-busting.

Item Description: Oxford University Press, 2008. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Rupert Murdoch's recent multibillion-dollar purchase of the Wall Street Journal made international news. Yet it is but one more chapter in an untold story: the rise of an integrated conservative media machine that all began with Rush Limbaugh in the 1980s. Now Kathleen Hall Jamieson and Joseph Cappella--two of the nation's foremost experts on politics and communications--offer a searching analysis of the conservative media establishment, from talk radio to Fox News to the editorial page of the Wall Street Journal. Indeed, here is the first serious account of how the conservative media arose, what it consists of, and how it operates. To show how this influential segment of the media works, the authors examine the uproar that followed when Senator Trent Lott seemed to endorse Strom Thurmond's segregationist past. Limbaugh called the remarks "utterly indefensible," but added that a "double standard" was in play. That signaled a broad counterattack by the conservative media establishment, charging the mainstream media with hypocrisy (yet using its reports when convenient), creating a knowledge base (a set of facts or allegations for partisans to draw upon), and fostering an in-group identity. By analyzing such cases, together with survey data, Jamieson and Cappella find that Limbaugh, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal opinion pages create a self-protective enclave for conservatives, shielding them from other information sources, and promoting strongly negative associations with political opponents. Limbaugh in particular, they write, fuses the roles of party leader and opinion leader in a fashion reminiscent of the nineteenth century's partisan newspaper editors. The rise of conservative media has fundamentally changed American politics. This thoughtful study offers the most authoritative and insightful account of this revolutionary phenomenon available today. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0195366824

Item Description: AMACOM, 2005. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "A daily newspaper can be regarded as a business not intrinsically different from making coat hangers or carpets. But to do so is to disregard the central role of newspapers and quality journalism in the democratic life of our communities and nation. Buzz Merritt presents a detailed social analysis of the trends that have undercut journalism's critical role in public life. To understand where we are, how we got here, and where we need to go, invest some time in Knightfall." -- Maxwell McCombs, Jesse H. Jones Centennial Chair, School of Journalism, University of Texas at Austin "Knightfall lifts the thin veil of corporate respectability from the long, steady suffocation of America's newspapers. Merritt's compelling case study is Knight Ridder -- yet the same sad story is playing out in print and broadcast newsrooms across the land. The slow but sure victory of outlandish profits over civic health endangers us all. To respond, we must understand. Start here." -- Geneva Overholser, Professor, Missouri School of Journalism, former editor, Des Moines Register "Merritt presents a sweeping account of the changes in journalism that are having an impact on the role newspapers play in our democracy. No one is in a better position to explain why than Merritt, whose views are informed by more than 40 years as a journalist. He is both an insightful professional and a dedicated citizen." -- David Mathews, President, Kettering Foundation "The story of the newspaper business in the 20th century is like a Sophocles play where the protagonists can see that their actions will lead to doom, but they are powerless to stop. Buzz Merritt built his career in the middle of this real-life tragedy, and his well-written case study helps us to understand the entire industry." -- Philip Meyer, author, The Vanishing Newspaper "Knightfall is a troubling and revealing account of what happens to journalism when it is yoked to the insatiable demands of Wall Street. It will resonate and reverberate in newsrooms, and should be required reading for anyone concerned about journalism and the future of democracy. Buzz Merritt's status as an insider gives this hard-hitting book unusual credibility." -- Gilbert Cranberg, former editor of the Des Moines Register's editorial pages; George H. Gallup Professor Emeritus, University of Iowa". Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0814408540

Item Description: Bedford/St. Martin's, 2006. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Adapted from Michael Meyer's best-selling Bedford Introduction to Literature , this anthology responds to the needs of all kinds of poetry courses. Instructors across the country report that especially at schools where there is a decreased emphasis on literature and the humanities, students do not necessarily see literature as relevant to their lives. They are sometimes totally new to poetry and are often intimidated by it; they sometimes have difficulty approaching and reading a poem and lack confidence in their critical and interpretive abilities. With these factors and students in mind, Meyer has put together an enticing collection of poems from many time periods, cultures, and themes, with voices ranging from the traditional to the hottest contemporary poets, always mixing in plenty of quirky and humorous selections that students will enjoy. Editorial features such as the author's new sample close readings and thematic case studies offer students real help with reading, appreciating, and writing about literature. Poetry is a book designed to make students life-long readers of poetry. Bookseller Inventory # ABE_book_usedgood_0312450516

Summary: The author clearly presents the issue of spanking in a clear manner, and presents alternative ways of discipline.# Written in an easy-to-read style so families can read and learn together.Statistics show that the most violent institution in America today is not the federal prison system. It is the family! the chances of getting assaulted and injured by someone else in your lifetime are greater in your family by far than in any other group of people you are likely to be around. Why is the family so violent?According to the authors, one of the main reasons is our belief as a society that physical punishment is an acceptable. and it all starts with the belief that spanking is good for our children.In this insightful, well-researched book, Dr. Marshall reveals:# Hitting a child causes more behavioral problems than it solves# Spanking has been found to increase aggression in children# Cases of poor self-image and depression have been traced to childhood corporal punishment# Repetition of one's own childhood experience is a poor substitute for informed parentingParents who explore this book will be amply rewarded as they learn alternatives to spanking.CLICK HERE TO ADD AN AUTHOR BIO.CLICK HERE TO ADD a CUSTOMER REVIEW.CLICK HERE TO ADD AN EDITORIAL REVIEW.

Item Description: Taj Books, 2005. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Nowadays we have stopped watching the sky. We are so submerged by our towns' lights, constantly busy, hypnotised by the television, that we hardly have time to contemplate the sky at night. We forget the stars' beauty, the planet's slow sliding, the lunar rhythms and the rotations of planets, season after season. This book is here to capture people's imagination through pictures, and to stimulate the reader to regain an interest in the stars, which was part of people's daily life less than one century ago. It teaches us how to use binoculars to discover the Moon and the stages of Venus, and allows one to find their own constellation of the zodiac. It keeps us fascinated by this science, the first real science of man, as was the case with thousands of studious and keen people all those years ago; it allows one to have a closer look at the universe thanks to a modern and powerful machines and gives one the opportunity to see the Sun, the planets and the stars too, in a different and unexpected way. It enables one to discover the existence of evanescent waves and galaxies about which we can only voice a theory of a beginning and an end. It is not just a dry text book but also one of philosophy of how this information could have been gathered together, what are the certainties and the limits, and where to find help and future indications to make a link with our own horizons. This book was neither written for people who work in this sector nor for the adepts of astrology. This book was conceived for those who don't like formulae and for those who are interested in the sciences and the world in general and may have been put off by the harsh teaching methods at school. * The best photographs of the space, the most attractive pictures of the planet and the most suggestive pictures concerning astronomy in the past, are gathered together on a making up around 600 pictures and lots of drawings which are there to help the reader's understanding. The text is easy to understand with stories about astronomy and spatial researches, from the most easily observable objects in the darkness to the most recent astrological knowledge. * 48 celestial cards concerning 3 different areas of the north and south allow plotting the most beautiful constellations in the night anywhere you are. Those reproduce at midnight the Milky Way of Equinox and Solstice but that also allows one to represent the sky, at 11.00 pm as it was 15 days before, at 10.00 pm as it was 30 days before or at 9.00 pm as it was 45 days before. In the same way, at 1.00 am it is possible to produce it as it will be the next 15 days, at 2.00 am as it will be the next 30 days or at 3.00 am as it will be the next 45 days. * The 7 best pictures of the moon will allow anyone to reproduce the most important satellite formations using just a simple set of binoculars: first, a moving passage through the sky. Simple suggestions and indications allow one to quickly recognise and reproduce the main constellations and to complete some of the more delicate ones with a telescope. A website and bibliography will mean that the reader can further expand their horizons in the future. * The glossary and the analytic index allow one to either quickly clarify any eventual problems which are linked to the terminology, or to easily spot a subject.

Item Description: Newstar Pr, 1996. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used: Very Good. 0787106771 Clean, tight and unmarked. Editorial Reviews Amazon Review At this point, it doesn't really take a thick book to document what's bad about the National Rifle Association, so muckraker Anderson has given us this rather efficient thin one. Anderson, whose previous great gun-control achievement was lampooning Capitol security by pulling a pistol out of his pocket during a meeting with Bob Dole in the latter's Senate office, here uses NRA member mailings to capture the group's hysteria and quotes legal cases to show that its scorched-earth interpretation of the "right to bear arms" has never been recognized by any court, including the Supremes. Most useful is an appendix listing Senators and House members who have always voted against meaningful gun control alongside the sizable amounts of NRA donations they've received.

Item Description: Twayne Pub, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: Used: Good. 080578330X Ex-Library in Very Good condition. Editorial Reviews From School Library Journal YA-- An authoritative study that also includes some of Cather's own comments about her writing. Divided into three segments entitled "The Short Fiction," "The Writer," and "The Critics," this collection of articles offers varied perceptions of Cather's little-noticed work. The first section analyzes such stories as "Paul's Case" and "The Garden Lodge," discussing the author's sense of irony. YAs eager to learn the writer's craft will find the middle section practical as they struggle to establish a persona. Students will appreciate Cather's views on the short story and its differences from the novel. Teachers will welcome the comprehensive consideration of the often underplayed efforts of this most American of authors. - Margaret D. Nolan, W. T.

Item Description: Bedford/St. Martin's, 2000. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: - Engaging students with the power of language in everyday life. Ideal for the composition classroom, the thematic focus on language in Language Awareness allows students to study compelling topics such as "Prejudice, Stereotypes, and Language" (Chapter 8) and "The Language of Persuasion: Politics and Advertising" (Chapter 12), while fostering an appreciation of the richness and vitality of the English language. Chosen particularly for their insight and appeal to students, the 70 readings -- by well-known writers and language experts -- encourage students to think carefully about the many dimensions of language, culture, and communication, and to use their own language more responsibly and effectively in speech and in writing.- 4 full chapters on writing. Language Awareness offers more writing coverage than any other reader of its kind, and this edition includes four new chapters. Along with three student papers, these 70 pages on the essentials of college writing introduce students to the writing process and cover the types of writing most often assigned to first year college students: writing from experience, writing from reading, and writing from research (with MLA style documentation).- Documents for analysis and writing after every essay and every chapter. Called Language in Action, the documents that appear after every single essay include advertisements, screen-shots of Web pages, cartoons, corporate documents, poems, magazine quizzes, humorous excerpts, and other real-life uses of public language. These documents are surrounded by editorial apparatus that invites students to practice the critical thinking they've just seen modeled in the essays. Every chapter now endswith one of two kinds of casebook: Cases-in-Point are groups of essays tightly focused around a controversial theme in language study, such as who decides what grammar is correct; Language-in-Use are sets of documents for comp.

Item Description: Omnigraphics, Inc., 2009. Book Condition: Used. This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Throughout the course of America's existence, its people, culture, and institutions have been periodically challenged-and in many cases transformed-by profound historical events. Some of these momentous events invigorated the nation and strengthened American confidence and capabilities. Others have prompted heated debates about the country's core beliefs and character. But all share the same basic attribute: they transformed the United States political cultural, and social landscape for future generations of Americans. Omnigraphics' Defining Moments series was created for the express purpose of meeting the growing appetite for authoritative, useful historical resources on the nations history. This series, which focuses on the most pivotal events in U.S. history from the 20th century forward, will be of enduring value to anyone interested in learning more about America's past-and in understanding how these historical events continue to reverberate in the 21st century. The Dream of America: Immigration 1870-1920-like all other volumes in the Defining Moments series-is arranged in three distinct sections: Narrative Overview-provides a detailed, factual account of the greatest sustained wave of immigration in U.S. history. It explains the economic and political forces that drove emigrants from Europe and other parts of the world, covering all aspects of their experience-their arduous ocean journeys, their passage through Ellis Island, and their struggles to build a better life in America. Finally, this section details U.S. immigration history from the 1920s through the present, including America's 21st-century struggles with illegal immigration. Biographies-includes valuable biographical background on leading figures involved in this era, including Jane Addams, who worked to improve the lives of immigrants: Henry Cabot Lodge, who tried to reduce the flow of immigrants into the U.S.; and Robert Watchorn and William Williams, who served as commissioners of Ellis Island in the early 1900s. Each biography concludes with a list of sources for further information on the profiled individual. Primary Sources-collects essential and enlightening documents on U.S. immigration history. This diverse collection includes recollections of transatlantic voyages to America and arrivals at Ellis Island, reports on deplorable steerage, turn-of-the-century editorials arguing for and against open immigration policies, stories detailing the struggles that immigrants faced, and commentaries on the immigration issues confronting America in the 21st century. Other valuable features include a glossary of important people, places, and terms; a chronology of events; a complete bibliography and annotated list of sources for future study: and a subject index.
