Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction
Philadelphia: A New Urban Direction poses the question: What must city government do to make the City of Philadelphia a preferred place to live, work, and play into the next century? Philadelphia City Controller Jonathan Saidel and his associates in the City Controller's Office treat the reader to an extraordinary insider's account of the inner workings of city government, utilize sophisticated modeling techniques to present a vision of Philadelphia's future, and present a plethora of novel ideas for improving the city for the 21st-century.

The Most Dangerous Area in the World: John F. Kennedy Confronts Communist Revolution in Latin America
In March 1961, President John F. Kennedy announced the formation of the Alliance for Progress, a program dedicated to creating prosperous, socially just, democratic societies throughout Latin America. Over the next few years, the United States spent nearly $20 billion in pursuit of the Alliance's goals, but Latin American economies barely grew, Latin American societies remained inequitable, and sixteen extra constitutional changes of government rocked the region. In this close, critical analysis, Stephen Rabe explains why Kennedy's grand plan for Latin America proved such a signal policy failure. More ...

Selling Tradition: Appalachia and the Construction of an American Folk, 1930-1940
The first half of the twentieth century witnessed a growing interest in America's folk heritage, as Americans began to enthusiastically collect, present, market, and consume the nation's folk traditions. Examining one of this century's most prominent "folk revivals"--the reemergence of Southern Appalachian handicraft traditions in the 1930s--Jane Becker unravels the cultural politics that bound together a complex network of producers, reformers, government officials, industries, museums, urban markets, and consumers, all of whom helped to redefine Appalachian craft production in the context of a national cultural identity.

Haunted Children: Rethinking Medication of Common Psychological Disorders
Arthur F. Roemmelt ‘65 provides a first-person account written in a refreshingly informal style, based upon case studies of the author’s patients, children with a variety of psychiatric disorders. The book is provocative both as a testimonial and as a eulogy to long and costly psychotherapy, a type of treatment “no longer desirable in a society that is adamant about cost effectiveness and armed with efficient medications.” It also warns that the increasing substitution of pharmacology for psychotherapy has negative as well as positive consequences. Dr. Roemmelt, a psychiatrist who practices in Syracuse, NY, argues with conviction and compassion that what troubles many children is more truly treated in therapy rather than, as a mere biochemical imbalance, by means of medication.
