City Streets, City People: A Call for Compassion

By Christensen, Michael J

Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1989-01-01. Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; An estimated 3 million people constitute the fastest growing new class of Americans: street people. No longer confined to an easily recognizable group of down-and-out alcoholic men, this class now includes children, women, entire families, and people invisible to ordinary passersby. The homeless, the mentally ill, the economically displaced, the chemically addicted, the runaways, and the lonely new lepers of our society -- people with AIDS -- all face different circumstances and have different needs. City Streets, City People highlights these circumstances and identifies these needs, and in clearly written, easy-to-follow chapters, outlines how anyone -- volunteer lay worker, part-time paraprofessional, or full-time Christian social worker -- can minister to the mental, physical, and spiritual dimensions of city people.

The Ten-Cent Plague: The Great Comic-Book Scare and How It Changed America

By Hajdu, David

New York: Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2008-03-18. First Edition. Hardcover. Good/Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket, ex-library with usual markings; In the years between World War II and the emergence of television as a mass medium, American popular culture as we know it was first created--in the pulpy, boldly illustrated pages of comic books. No sooner had this new culture emerged than it was beaten down by church groups, community bluestockings, and a McCarthyish Congress--only to resurface with a crooked smile on its face in "Mad "magazine. The story of the rise and fall of those comic books has never been fully told--until "The Ten-Cent Plague." David Hajdu's remarkable new book vividly opens up the lost world of comic books, its creativity, irreverence, and suspicion of authority. When we picture the 1950s, we hear the sound of early rock and roll. "The Ten-Cent Plague "shows how--years before music--comics brought on a clash between children and their parents, between prewar and postwar standards. Created by outsiders from the tenements, garish, shameless, and often shocking, comics spoke to young people and provided the guardians of mainstream culture with a big target. Parents, teachers, and complicit kids burned comics in public bonfires. Cities passed laws to outlaw comics. Congress took action with televised hearings that nearly destroyed the careers of hundreds of artists and writers.

The Rise of Enlightened Sexism: How Pop Culture Took Us from Girl Power to Girls Gone Wild

By Douglas, Susan J

New York: St. Martin's Griffin, 2010-12-21. Paperback. Very Good. light edge wear; Women today are inundated with conflicting messages from the mass media: they must either be strong leaders in complete command or sex kittens obsessed with finding and pleasing a man. In The Rise Of Enlightened Sexism, Susan J. Douglas, one of America's most entertaining and insightful cultural critics, takes readers on a spirited journey through the television programs, popular songs, movies, and news coverage of recent years, telling a story that is nothing less than the cultural biography of a new generation of American women.Revisiting cultural touchstones from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Survivor to Desperate Housewives, Douglas uses wit and wisdom to expose these images of women as mere fantasies of female power, assuring women and girls that the battle for equality has been won, so there's nothing wrong with resurrecting sexist stereotypes—all in good fun, of course. She shows that these portrayals not only distract us from the real-world challenges facing women today but also drive a wedge between baby-boom women and their "millennial" daughters.

In the tradition of the classic horror films Buffy the Vampire Slayer addresses ethical issues that have long fascinated audiences. This book draws out the ethical and metaphysical lessons from a pop-culture phenomenon
