✏Asian American Curricular Epistemicide Book Summary : In this important book, Nicholas Hartlep and Daniel Scott’s detailed analyses on both visual and historical representations of Asian Americans in textbooks and teacher manuals used in our elementary and secondary schools poignantly tell us that generations of children are growing up being fed this single story about Asian Americans. As Hartlep and Scott write. Asian Americans have once again been constructed as the “good minority” that can succeed on their own and be used as a political instrument to shame the Blacks for their underachievement and their fight for equality. Over and over again, the media has been telling “a single story” about Asian Americans to the public for the past fifty years. The consequence of this fabricated story is that it “discourages others—even Asian-Americans themselves—from believing in the validity of their struggles” (Linshi, 2014, p. 1).

✏ There She Is Miss America Book Summary : Hoping to extend the summer tourism season, a group of Atlantic City businessmen hatched the idea of a late September "Fall Frolic" in 1920. The following year, several East Coast newspapers featured a photographic beauty contest, sending the winners to the Fall Frolic for the final round of judging. The Miss America Pageant evolved from this contest to become the longest-running beauty pageant in the world. While some see the competition as a hokey vestige of another era, many remain enthralled by the annual event. And whether you love it or hate it, no one can deny the impact the contest has had on American popular culture--indeed, one can draw a direct line from the pageant to the myriad "reality" programs that now dominate network television. The Miss America Pageant itself has provided a fascinating glimpse into how American standards of femininity have been defined, projected, maintained, and challenged over the course of the twentieth century and into the current one. At various times, it has been praised as a positive tole model for young American women, protested by feminists as degrading to women, and shamed by scandals, such as the one caused by the Penthouse photos of Vanessa L. Williams in 1984. In the first interdisciplinary anthology to examine the uniquely American event, scholars defend, critique, and reflect on the pageant, grappling with themes such as beauty, race, the body, identify, kitsch, and consumerism.

📒Boardwalk Of Dreams ✍ Bryant Simon

✏Book Title : Boardwalk of Dreams

✏Boardwalk of Dreams Book Summary : During the first half of the twentieth century, Atlantic City was the nation's most popular middle-class resort--the home of the famed Boardwalk, the Miss America Pageant, and the board game Monopoly. By the late 1960s, it had become a symbol of urban decay and blight, compared by journalists to bombed-out Dresden and war-torn Beirut. Several decades and a dozen casinos later, Atlantic City is again one of America's most popular tourist spots, with thirty-five million visitors a year. Yet most stay for a mere six hours, and the highway has replaced the Boardwalk as the city's most important thoroughfare. Today the city doesn't have a single movie theater and its one supermarket is a virtual fortress protected by metal detectors and security guards. In this wide-ranging book, Bryant Simon does far more than tell a nostalgic tale of Atlantic City's rise, near death, and reincarnation. He turns the depiction of middle-class vacationers into a revealing discussion of the boundaries of public space in urban America. In the past, he argues, the public was never really about democracy, but about exclusion. During Atlantic City's heyday, African Americans were kept off the Boardwalk and away from the beaches. The overly boisterous or improperly dressed were kept out of theaters and hotel lobbies by uniformed ushers and police. The creation of Atlantic City as the "Nation's Playground" was dependent on keeping undesirables out of view unless they were pushing tourists down the Boardwalk on rickshaw-like rolling chairs or shimmying in smoky nightclubs. Desegregation overturned this racial balance in the mid-1960s, making the city's public spaces more open and democratic, too open and democratic for many middle-class Americans, who fled to suburbs and suburban-style resorts like Disneyworld. With the opening of the first casino in 1978, the urban balance once again shifted, creating twelve separate, heavily guarded, glittering casinos worlds walled off from the dilapidated houses, boarded-up businesses, and lots razed for redevelopment that never came. Tourists are deliberately kept away from the city's grim reality and its predominantly poor African American residents. Despite ten of thousands of buses and cars rolling into every day, gambling has not saved Atlantic City or returned it to its glory days. Simon's moving narrative of Atlantic City's past points to the troubling fate of urban America and the nation's cultural trajectory in the twentieth century, with broad implications for those interested in urban studies, sociology, planning, architecture, and history.
