  • Boundaries: an accidental activist
  • Habits: writing the truth in the Age of Trump
  • Changes: coming home.
In this timely book, a Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter trains an autobiographical lens on a moment of remarkable transition in American journalism. Just a few years ago, the mainstream press was wrestling with whether labeling waterboarding as torture violated important norms of neutrality and objectivity. Now, major American newspapers regularly call the president of the United States a liar. Clearly, something has changed as the old rules of "balance" and "two sides to every story" have lost their grip. Is the change for the better? Will it last? In Just a Journalist, Linda Greenhouse--who for decades covered the U.S. Supreme Court for The New York Times--tackles these questions from the perspective of her own experience. A decade ago, she faced criticism from her own newspaper and much of journalism's leadership for a speech to a college alumnae group in which she criticized the Bush administration for, among other things, seeking to create a legal black hole at Guantánamo Bay--two years after the Supreme Court itself had ruled that the detainees could not be hidden away from the reach of federal judges who might hear their appeals. One famous newspaper editor expressed his belief that it was unethical for a journalist to vote, because the act of choosing one candidate over another could compromise objectivity. Linda Greenhouse disagrees. Calling herself "an accidental activist, " she raises urgent questions about the role journalists can and should play as citizens, even as participants, in the world around them.-- Provided by publisher

  • Introduction: Grand openings and closings
  • Order in the landscape
  • Christmas city and sin city simply do not go together
  • The postindustrial factory
  • A steel site in limbo
  • Landscapes of life and loss
  • What happens in Bethlehem depends on Macau
  • Conclusion: Postindustrial planning and possibility.
Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, was once synonymous with steel. But after the factories closed, the city bet its future on a new industry: casino gambling. From Steel to Slots tells the story of a city struggling to make sense of the ways in which local jobs, landscapes, and identities are transformed by global capitalism. Postindustrial redevelopment often makes a clean break with a city's rusted past. In Bethlehem, where the new casino is industrial-themed, the city's heritage continues to dominate the built environment and infuse everyday experiences. Through the voices of steelworkers, casino dealers, preservationists, immigrants, and executives, Chloe Taft examines the ongoing legacies of corporate presence and urban development in a small city-and their uneven effects. Today, multinational casino corporations increasingly act as urban planners, promising jobs and tax revenues to ailing communities. Yet in an industry premised on risk, short-term gains do not necessarily mean long-term commitments to local needs. While residents often have few cards to play in the face of global capital, Taft argues that the shape economic progress takes is not inevitable, nor must it always look forward. Citizens see alternatives for more equitable futures in the layered landscapes all around them.

On British Islam examines the history and everyday workings of Islamic institutions in Britain, with a focus on shari'a councils. These councils concern themselves with religious matters, especially divorce. They have a higher profile in Britain than in other Western nations. Why? Taking a historical and ethnographic look at British Islam, John Bowen examines how Muslims have created distinctive religious institutions in Britain and how shari'a councils interpret and apply Islamic law in a secular British context. Bowen focuses on three specific shari'a councils: the oldest and most developed, in London; a Midlands community led by a Sufi saint and barrister; and a Birmingham-based council in which women play a leading role. Bowen shows that each of these councils represents a prolonged, unique experiment in meeting Muslims' needs in a Western country. He also discusses how the councils have become a flash point in British public debates even as they adapt to the English legal environment. On British Islam highlights British Muslims' efforts to create institutions that make sense in both Islamic and British terms. This balancing act is rarely acknowledged in Britain-or elsewhere-but it is urgent that we understand it if we are to build new ways of living together.

"Le 14 juillet 2015, les Iraniens envahissent les rues de Téhéran. Ils viennent célébrer leur joie de revenir au sein du concert des nations. Après plus d'une décennie de bras de fer, un accord sur le nucléaire iranien a été signé quelques heures plus tôt. Tout est désormais imaginable pour les presque 80 millions d'habitants après douze ans de sanctions. À quelques milliers de kilomètres de là, les entreprises européennes se frottent aussi les mains. Car le pays est présenté d'ores et déjà comme un eldorado économique et un marché incontournable. Partout, l'ouverture du pays est annoncée. Un an après cette signature, les Iraniens et les sociétés étrangères attendent encore. Le pays n'est toujours pas reconnecté financièrement. Pourtant un changement s'opère subrepticement depuis plusieurs années déjà: la population tente de changer les choses pas à pas. Pour saisir l'éveil d'un pays tiraillé entre conservatisme et envie de progrès, Mariam Pirzadeh est allée à la rencontre de celles et ceux qui font l'Iran d'aujourd'hui, bien loin des clichés dans lequel on enferme la République islamique."--Page 4 of cover.

"La Tunisie fut fin 2010 pionnière des printemps arabes. Elle est le seul pays à s'en être sortie bénéficiaire d'une avancée démocratique réussie. À l'heure où tout ne bruit que des drames de ceux qui ont échoué à accomplir cette transition, sans parler du silence qu'on fait sur ceux qui ne l'ont pas même entreprise, le cas de la Tunisie ne doit pas rester dans l'angle mort de la vision occidentale, comme si le dossier était clos. La Tunisie s'enorgueillit à juste titre d'être devenue le premier état arabe authentiquement démocratique. Mais elle n'est pas passée loin d'une dérive inverse, et l'assise des valeurs démocratiques telles que les cultive l'Union Européenne par exemple est encore loin d'y être parfaitement stabilisée dans l'ensemble de l'opinion. Aux frontières mêmes du pays s'étend l'emprise de Daech, et c'est au musée du Bardo, ainsi que sur la plage de Sousse, que le terrorisme islamiste a frappé comme à Paris ou Bruxelles. L'économie, encore convalescente et lésée par ces atteintes au tourisme, expose le pays aux aléas d'une situation sociale marquée notamment par un chômage très élevé des jeunes. Enfin on ne convertit pas du jour au lendemain au libéralisme international moderne un pays à la fois empesé par tout un passé notamment bureaucratique, et effarouché par tout ce que représente la plongée vers l'avenir. À l'occasion des quarante ans de l'accord d'association avec la Communauté Européenne de 1976, la revue l'Économiste maghrebin a organisé à Tunis les 29 et 30 avril 2016 un Forum portant à la fois sur la relation à l'Union Européenne et sur l'avenir numérique du pays. Le présent ouvrage, en proposant une synthèse de ces travaux, vise à appeler l'attention sur le destin d'une nation historiquement et géographiquement si proche de l'Europe, en difficulté, peut-être en danger, mais si riche de potentiel et d'élan constructif, à un moment où de son destin dépend peut-être l'avenir des relations euroméditerranéennes."--Page 4 of cover.
