Three recent, and extremely important books:

Nick Turse.  2013.  Kill Anything That Moves:  The Real American War in Vietnam.  New York:  Metropolitan Books.

I have read this entire book, and it is the best book that covers the war in general that I have ever read.  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  (Scipes’ review at www.substancenews.net/articles.php?page=4416&section=Article.)

Oliver Stone and Peter Kuznick.  2012.  The Untold History of the United States.  New York:  Gallery Books.

Excellent–and heard Stone and Kuznick talk and show their piece on Vietnam in Chicago on Feb 1, 2013, which was excellent.

The books and articles listed below are merely some of the items available on the subjects I teach (organized by subject), after general sociological works, but I think they are some of the better ones, although most of the listings below are of books.  Inclusion on this list does not necessarily mean I agree with them, but I’ve found them worth considering.  This list is in no way comprehensive, but rather an introduction.  Please feel free to check them out, and to suggest other books that you think are particularly noteworthy.  Courses taught include Race and Ethnic Diversity (SOC 310), Sociology of Developing Countries in a Globalizing World (SOC 403), Environment and Social Justice (SOC 404), Power, Social Control and the Media (SOC 405), Social Movements (SOC 406), and Social Stratification (i.e., income inequality) (SOC 411).

These references are listed by particular racial/ethnic group, and are not equally represented.  The overwhelming majority of books on African Americans represents my academic interest, as well as growing number of books on African Americans—and is not to suggest they are any more important than any other grouping.  Within a particular section, books are listed alphabetically by author’s last name.  Any book that is about racial/ethnic diversity and which includes two or more groups, or about the issue of racism in general, is generally put under “Race.”  This is an on-going work-in-progress.  Groups with at least one reference include African Americans, Arab-Americans, Chinese-Americans, Cuban-Americans, Hmong, Irish-Americans, Italian-Americans, Japanese-Americans, Latinos (as a group), Mexican-Americans/Chicanos, Native Americans, Polish-Americans, Puerto Ricans and Vietnamese Americans.  Additionally, I have added related subjects such as Immigration and Islam.  Sources will be added over time for each of them, and additional racial/ethnic groups will also be added.)

SOCIOLOGY OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES in a GLOBALIZING WORLD: SOC 403

This course looks at the “developing world,” which also means looking at US developments in a global context and globalization in general, as well as focusing on changes within certain countries.  Particularly when looking at these developing countries, most attention is paid to workers, although their perspective is only one from which to observe developments in their respective countries.  This field has exploded over the past 10 years or so, as more and more people in the United States are understanding that the US is part of a larger world, meaning that this is just an “introduction.”

 

There are four sections below.

The first is DEVELOPING COUNTRIES, and this section focuses both in general and Particular Countries–specifically including Afghanistan, BarbadosBoliviaBrazil, Burma/Myanmar, CanadaChile, China, Congo, CubaEgypt, EthiopiaGhana, HaitiHondurasIndiaIndonesiaIran, Iraq (including material related to the war), Libya, MexicoNigeriaPalestine/Israel, PakistanPanamaPeruPhilippinesRwanda, South AfricaSomaliaSouth KoreaSyria, Thailand, Turkey, UgandaUnited Kingdom, VenezuelaVietnam, and Zimbabwe.

The second section is on SPECIFIC SUBJECTS which particularly affect developing countries:  including the food crisis and the environmental crisis.

The third section is on GLOBALIZATION.

The fourth section is on  US DEVELOPMENTS IN A GLOBAL CONTEXT.

NOTE:  There is an excellent, two-hour video, “What I’ve Learned About US Foreign Policy:  The War Against the Third World,” compiled by US military veteran Frank Dorrel that I highly recommend.  It is available for $10 from http://www.addictedtowar.com/dorrel.html.

 

Also, I want to draw attention to Naomi Klein’s 2007 book The Shock Doctrine:  The Rise of Disaster Capitalism.  (NY:  Picador, 2007).  It is excellent.  Also, see her “One Year After the Publication of The Shock Doctrine, A Response to the Attacks,” September 2, 2008, atwww.commondreams.org/view/2008/09/02-7.

 

Note:  I want to draw attention to Eric Walberg’s 2011 book, Postmodern Imperialism:  Geopolitics and the Great Games (Atlanta:  Clarity Press).  This is excellent, and compares political efforts today in Asia (explained very clearly) to those by Britain/Russia before the Soviet Empire, and between the US and the USSR during the “Cold War.”

SOCIOLOGY OF DEVELOPING COUNTRIES in a GLOBALIZING WORLD: SOC 403

This section of my web site begins with an “Important Articles” and “Websites” section, presents material on efforts of the US Army Corps of Engineers to build a toxic waste dump within 800 yards of two schools in EAST CHICAGO, INDIANA, and then goes to a “General” section.  Sections focusing on climate change (aka “global warming”), changes in the oceans,fresh water shortages, food shortages, depleted uranium, and peak oil follow.  Also, there are references for student papers addressing air pollution, landfills, recycling, roads, toxic waste dumps, and water pollution.

Next time someone questions whether the climate change hand wringers are alarmists, show them this:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDsIFspVzfI

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, sponsored by the World Meteorological Organization of the United Nations,  has been doing extensive research on the issue of climate change and global warming.  Their fourth global assessment is coming out this year (2007).  They provide a comprehensive and rigorous picture of the global present state of knowledge on climate change.  Please check out their web site at http://www.ipcc.ch/ and see what the best climatologists in the world are saying about the issue.  For Summary for Policymakers on “Climate Change 2007:  Climate Change Impacts, Adaptation and Vulnerability,” go to www.ipcc.ch/SPM6avr07.pdf.

 

An excellent web site that I’ve recently learned about is Climate Progress, athttp://climateprogress.org .  Great data, with extensive posting almost daily.

 

When addressing issues related to the environment, the Worldwatch Institute is, without a doubt, one of the foremost research/publication organizations in the world.  I have read their material for years, and it is generally excellent.  Besides looking at issues as the environment itself, in all its complexity, they also focus on issues of population and health, as well as “third world” development–much “development” is at the direct expense of the local environment, whether it is stimulated by local elites, government officials and/or foreign investors.  I encourage all readers to check out its web site at www.worldwatch.org.

 

Another, more recently emerging web site to check out its that of CounterCurrents.org.  This site is based in India, and is not an environmental site alone, but covers a wide range of issues.  However, as one can see below with my many links to articles carried on this site, they extensively cover issues such as climate change, depleted uranium and peak oil, so I urge that this site be checked out as well.

 

Also, just found another new web site that deserves attention:  Oil Change International atwww.priceoffoil.org.  This group is trying to get oil money out of US elections, and so Americans can visit the web site, put in your zip code, and get a list of senators and representatives, and see how much money each has received from the oil industry.  They also have a very funny video called “Addicted to Oil” that is worth watching.

 

Environmental Research Foundation, home of the wonderful and excellent “Rachel’s Democracy and Health News,” is at www.precaution.org.  This is an excellent source of news and information:  HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

 

Back to Sociology of the Environment

 

EAST CHICAGO, INDIANA:   Site of the Confined Disposal Facility–truthfully, toxic waste dump–located within 800 yards of two public schools and a mental health facility.  Note that this is an extreme case of environmental injustice as 87.8% of the population of East Chicago is Latino or African American.  (For an introduction to the concept of environmental justice, go tohttp://www.umich.edu/~snre492/, which is produced by the School of Natural Resources and the Environment at the University of Michigan; for case studies–both in the US and around the world–of environmental injustice, go to http://www.umich.edu/~snre492/cases.html, which have been developed by U Michigan students.)

 

Note:  East Chicago, Indiana is located southeast of Chicago, Illinois, and sits on the side of Indiana Harbor, a human-made harbor that is generally enclosed by two “arms” surrounding it.  On EACH of the two arms sits a steel mill–both now owned by Arcelor Mittal, the largest steel company in the world.  Prior to Arcelor Mittal buying these mills–I do not know what they are doing today–these mills have dumped extensive toxic wastes into Indiana Harbor.  (Previously to 1972, and the Clean Water Act, they had been dumping these wastes into Lake Michigan, but with the passed of the Act, they dumped in Indiana Harbor, which empties into Lake Michigan … don’t ask me how they got away with it!)

 

In any case, the amount of wastes dumped into the Harbor became so extensive that the mills could no longer fill ships with steel before sailing–the ships could only sail partially loaded.  The mills went to the US Army Corps of Engineers, which has federal jurisdiction for ensuring that harbors remain open, etc., and asked the Corps to dredge Indiana Harbor.  Well, recognizing the toxicity of the wastes–including PCBs–the Corps needed a place to put this crap:  and after years of community resistance to other sites–this struggle against the dump began in 1996!–decided to locate the Confined Disposal Facility (CDF) within 800 yards of East Chicago High School and Westview Middle School.

 

Below are links to material on this struggle, including a front page article in the Chicago Tribune, a major article in the Chicago Reader, a report developed by students at the University of Michigan, and a series of web pages created by myself when I served as the Executive Director (August 2002-September 2003) of The Calumet Project, a labor-church-community coalition, headquartered at that time in Hammond, Indiana.  Please feel free to examine each–as well as go to the additional resources linked to these primary sites–to see what has been going on in this one city in Northwest Indiana.

SOCIOLOGY OF THE MEDIA (SOC 405)

This section is sub-divided into sections focusing on an introduction section (including important articles, connection to newspapers around the world, and critical sites focusing on the US news media); the media in generalcritical media studies (critiques of mainstream media–includes a special section on Israel’s invasion of Gaza); and alternative media (promotion of democratic participatory media).

Very important article:  John Hanrahan, “At Least 1,400 Arrests for Anti-war Dissent, but Who’s Counting?  Not the Press.  Nieman Watchdog, July 22, 2001.  On-line athttp://www.niemanwatchdog.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=background.view&backgroundid=00563&stoplayout=true&print=true.

Excellent, critical sites about the US news media, see:

      • http://www.democracynow.org/  This is the web site of Democracy Now!, the daily alternative TV/radio news program developed by Amy Goodman.
      • http://mediachannel.org/  This is the web site of Danny Schechter, the “News Dissector.”
      • http://www.fair.org/index.php : This is the website for FAIR, Fairness and Accuracy in Reporting.
      • www.mediaaccuracy.org.  This is the web site of Media Accuracy on Latin America, a project of NACLA, the North American Congress on Latin America.
      • www.chicagomediaaction.org:  This is the website of an excellent Chicago-based media action organization.
      • http://chicago.indymedia.org:  This is the website of Chicago Indy Media, which provides news and information on Chicago and the world–and is a way into the world of  Independent Media Centers.
      • http://freepress.net/media_issues.  This discusses the work of Free Press, which describes itself as “a national, nonpartisan organization working to reform the media.”  Area focused on include media consolidation, the future of the internet, public media, quality journalism, civil rights, and is building a social movement to gain better media in the United States.
      • www.publicintegrity.org/default.aspx:  The is the website for The Center for Public Integrity, which supports “Investigative Journalism in the Public Interest.”  For an excellent introduction to its origin and development to 2004 by its founder and initial president, Charles Lewis, click here.
      • www.journalism.org:  This is the web site of The Project for Excellence in Journalism.  This is a research organization that specializes in using empirical methods to evaluate and study the performance of the press. Their goal is to help both the journalists who produce the news and the citizens who consume it develop a better understanding of what the press is delivering. The Project has put special emphasis on content analysis in the belief that quantifying what is occurring in the press, rather than merely offering criticism and analysis, is a better approach to understanding.  They produce a yearly “State of the News Media,” which they title “An Annual Report on American Journalism”; for 2007, it can be found on-line at www.stateofthenewsmedia.com/2007/index.asp.  This is an extensive report, and the 2007 report gives material on digital journalism, newspapers, on-line, network TV, Cable TV, Local TV, Magazines, Radio, and “Ethnic” media, as well as a journalist survey, and discusses “about the study.”
      • www.niemanwatchdog.org.  This is the web site for the Nieman School of Journalism at Harvard University, and good place to check for critical articles about journalism.
      • On April 24, 2007, Bill Moyers did an excellent TV program on PBS called “Buying the War.”  This was about the failure of mainstream journalism to critically evaluate the Bush Administration’s run up to the invasion of Iraq.  Everyone should take a look at this program.  It can be located at http://www.pbs.org/moyers/journal/btw/watch.html.  (While this is by far the best critique of the mainstream press in the mainstream press, Moyers focuses too much on the failures of individual journalists–and there were many–and ignored the larger institutional failure of the press:  why did editors accept the nonsense particular journalists were providing, and why did the media overall uncritically accept the Bush Administration’s propaganda…?)
