In the late 1960s, African American protests and Black Power demonstrations in California’s Santa Clara County—including what’s now called Silicon Valley—took many observers by surprise. After all, as far back as the 1890s, the California constitution had legally abolished most forms of racial discrimination, and subsequent legal reform had surely taken care of the rest. White Americans might even have wondered where the black activists in the late sixties were coming from—because, beginning with the writings of Fredrick Jackson Turner, the most influential histories of the American West simply left out African Americans or, later, portrayed them as a passive and insignificant presence. Uninvited Neighbors puts black people back into the picture and dispels cherished myths about California’s racial history. Reaching from the Spanish era to the valley’s emergence as a center of the high-tech industry, this is the first comprehensive history of the African American experience in the Santa Clara Valley. Author Herbert G. Ruffin II’s study presents the black experience in a new way, with a focus on how, despite their smaller numbers and obscure presence, African Americans in the South Bay forged communities that had a regional and national impact disproportionate to their population. As the region industrialized and spawned suburbs during and after World War II, its black citizens built institutions such as churches, social clubs, and civil rights organizations and challenged socioeconomic restrictions. Ruffin explores the quest of the area’s black people for the postwar American Dream. The book also addresses the scattering of the black community during the region’s late yet rapid urban growth after 1950, which led to the creation of several distinct black suburban communities clustered in metropolitan San Jose. Ruffin treats people of color as agents of their own development and survival in a region that was always multiracial and where slavery and Jim Crow did not predominate, but where the white embrace of racial justice and equality was often insincere. The result offers a new view of the intersection of African American history and the history of the American West.
When rejection comes back to bite you... Jordan's life sucks. Her boyfriend, Michael, dumped her, slept his way through half the student body, and then killed himself. But now, somehow, he appears at her window every night, begging her to let him in. Jordan can't understand why he wants her, but she feels her resistance wearing down. After all, her life -- once a broken record of boring parties, meaningless hookups, and friends she couldn't relate to -- now consists of her drinking alone in her room as she waits for the sun to go down. Michael needs to be invited in before he can enter. All Jordan has to do is say the words....

Candidates and parties need money to fight election campaigns. In the United States, this money comes largely from individuals and groups—not the government and taxpayers. Many people criticize such private financing of politics. Private donations, they claim, advance special interests, thereby corrupting politics and government. Some critics argue that government should ban private campaign contributions in favor of financing by taxpayers. Since public money comes from everyone, they reason, it actually comes from no one, which cuts out corruption before it begins. But taxpayer financing of campaigns—such as the income-tax check-off for presidential campaigns—has its share of critics who point out that public financing has often come up short in terms of increasing electoral competition. Another major problem concerns the taxpayers who are called on to fund these programs. Taxpayer financing, in polls and in reality, lacks public support. The public resists giving “welfare to politicians” to run their campaigns. In Welfare for Politicians, leading analysts from both sides of the public financing debate address the history of these programs, including the successes and failures of the financing system for presidential elections. They also take up recent innovations in the states, including models of full taxpayer financing passed by initiative in Arizona, Maine, and Massachusetts. Together they offer a groundbreaking analysis of the problem and an instructive guide to future reform.
ليست ملحمة وطنية ولا قصة فداء وتضحيات. ليست قصة عشق عادية بين رجل وامرأة؛ فالحبيبة كانت أكثر من حبيبة، والوطن كان اكبر من العشق. ظل عمره كله يظن أنه في رحلة وحتمًا سيأتي يومًا وتنتهي، لكنه اكتشف أن تلك الرحلة في داخله، فالوطن داخله والغربة ايضًا داخله. تنطلق أحداث الرواية من صباح مشرق في إحدى مستشفيات العاصمة الفرنسية باريس مدينة النور حيث يبدأ بطل الرواية إسحاق رحلة إلى الماضي لينقب في آبار ذكرياته عن كنوز ما زال يواريها ولم يتحدث عنها قط منذ أن وطأت قدماه فرنسا وهو طفل يهوديٌ صغير رفض والده البقاء تحت ظلال وطن لقيط يرفضونه، يحاول بناء نفسه على أشلاء وطن مغتصب، ودماء أبرياء. ولم يكن ذلك هربًا من الموت والحرب ولا مصير محفوف بالدماء، ولكن ليبتعدا عن التصرفات البربرية والوحشية التي يمارسها الكيان الصهيوني ليس في حق الفلسطنين فحسب ولكن في حق أرض يحاولون تشويهها وتغييرها لتتناسب مع التاريخ الذي يحاولون صنعه لصالحهم. في تلك الرحلة يروي البطل تفاصيل مازال يتذكرها عن وطنه وعن أناس عايشوا معه رحلته، وعن أصدقاء آخرين تأثر بحياتهم، وكذلك عن حبيبته الوحيدة التي كانت بالنسبة له وطن خلقه في الغربة.
