✏Reelpolitik II Book Summary : Reelpolitik II moves past typical left-right political distinctions to examine political ideologies cycling through U.S. history during the '50s and '60s. These eight Cold War movies especially equipped the moviegoer with a unique vantage point to scrutinize the arms race, the Red Scare, the Korean Conflict, and the Vietnam War. They also helped audiences to observe the way film functions as a purveyor of American mythology, a megaphone to shout political messages, a metaphorical route to the emotions, a flattering mirror, an unflattering microscope, and a magic carpet ride back to the future.

✏Johnny Olson A Voice in Time Book Summary : While Johnny Olson is best known as the original announcer on CBS' The Price Is Right, he was a seminal figure in radio and television whose prolific career is woven into the fabric of broadcasting's history. Using Olson's own words and documentation of his career, as well as his personal remembrances of the birth of modern media, this book traces the development of radio and TV from their experimental roots, through their growth to America's most infl uential sociological force. From Marconi to Match Game, from the birth of the CBS, NBC, ABC and Mutual radio networks, through the rise and demise of DuMont television, and a glorious history of game shows, this is the story of American broadcasting as experienced by a respected and celebrated participant, Johnny Olson - one of TV's most recognizable voices, who enjoyed a 58-year career that intersected with the stars, shows, and events that are part of our cultural tapestry. Randy West tells this story from a unique perspective, having enjoyed Olson's personal mentoring through his own impressive career that included work at Olson's podium as announcer on The Price is Right. Randy shares Olson's personal photos and personal notes, as well as the stories his mentor shared over their 15 year friendship. This is a fresh and fun look at TV as you've never seen it! "Olson was Randy's mentor, and Randy has Olson's personal effects, old clippings, scripts and momentos collected during a 58-year career, as well as notes from Olson's planned autobiography. Those materials along with new interviews and research created an insider's look at the history of American broadcasting as lived by one of its better-known voices." - LARadio.com

✏Teaching Politics Beyond the Book Book Summary : To teach political issues such as political struggle, justice, interstate conflict, etc. educators rely mostly on textbooks and lectures. However, many other forms of narrative exist that can elevate our understanding of such issues. This innovative work seeks new ways to foster learning beyond the textbook and lecture model, by using creative and new media, including graphic novels, animated films, hip-hop music, Twitter, and more. Discussing the opportunities these media offer to teach and engage students about politics, the work presents concrete ways on how to use them, along with teaching and assessment strategies, all tested in the classroom. The contributors are dedicated educators from various types of institutions whose essays span a variety of political topics and examine how non-traditional "texts" can promote critical thinking and intellectual growth among students in colleges and universities. The first of its kind to discuss a wide range of alternative texts and media, the book will be a valuable resource to anyone seeking to develop innovative curricula and engage their students in the study of politics.

✏Bush s War Book Summary : Immediately after the attacks of September 11, 2001, Americans looked to President Bush for words of leadership. In his most formal reply of the day, he said, 'Today, our fellow citizens, our way of life, our very freedom came under attack in a series of deliberate and deadly terrorist acts. The victims were in airplanes, or in their offices; secretaries, businessmen and women, military and federal workers; moms and dads, friends and neighbors. Thousands of lives were suddenly ended by evil, despicable acts of terror.' The stark tone of Bush's speech suggested the promise of more words to come from the president, and it is these words that Bush's War addresses. While many books have offered a take on the attacks of 9/11 and their impact upon American society, one area has been comparatively ignored: presidential justifications for war in the age of terrorism. Specifically, what did President Bush say to justify American military actions in the postD9/11 world? And how did the public hear what he said, especially as it was filtered through the news media? The eloquent and thoughtful Bush's War shows how public perception of what the president says is shaped by media bias. Jim A. Kuypers compares Bush's statements with press coverage, arguing that the nature of American public knowledge concerning our role in the world has been changed_not by 9/11, but by the subsequent argumentative back-and-forth between Bush and the press.

✏A Cold War Odyssey Book Summary : The Cold War -- that long ideological conflict between the world's two superpowers -- had a profound effect not only on nations but on individuals, especially all those involved in setting and implementing the policies that shaped the struggle. Donald Nuechterlein was one such individual and this is his story. Although based in fact, the narrative reads like fiction, and it takes the reader behind the scenes as no purely factual telling of that complex story can. Presented as the story of David and Helen Bruening and their family, A Cold War Odyssey carries us across three continents. Against a backdrop of national and international events, we follow the Bruenings through five decades as David's governmental and academic assignments take them to all corners of the world. In the tradition of Herman Wouk's Winds of War, the Bruenings' personal and professional odyssey offers us a microcosm of world history in the second half of the twentieth century. Through the acute eyes of these participant observers, we see the partitioning of Europe after World War II, Korea and Vietnam, Watergate and Iran, the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany, the collapse of the Soviet Union and, with it, the end of the Cold War. With each succeeding episode, our understanding of the causes and consequences of international struggle is deepened through the Bruenings' experience.
