"American Soldiers in Iraq" offers a unique sociological snapshot of American soldiers in Iraq, analyzing their collective narratives in relation to the military sociology tradition. Grounded in a century-long tradition of sociology offering a window into the world of American soldiers, this volume serves as a voice for their experience. It provides the reader with both a generalized and a deep view into a major social institution in American society and its relative constituents - 'the military and soldiers' - during a war. In so doing, the book gives a backstage insight into the US military and into the experiences and attitudes of soldiers during their most extreme undertaking - a forward deployment in Iraq while hostilities are intense.The author triangulates qualitative and quantitative field data collected while residing with soldiers in Iraq, and compares and contrasts various groups, from officers and enlisted soldiers, as well as topics such as boredom, morale, preparation for war, day-to-day life in Iraq, attitudes, women soldiers, communication with the home-front, 'McDonaldization' of the force, civil-military fusion, the long-term impact of war, and, finally, the socio-demographics of fatalities. The heart of "American Soldiers in Iraq" captures the experiences of American soldiers deployed to Operation Iraqi Freedom at the height of the conflict in a way unprecedented in the literature to date.This book will be essential reading for students of Sociology, Military Studies and Political Science, as well as being of much interest to informed general readers. Morten Ender is Professor of Sociology at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. His research on military sociology has appeared in the Journal of Adolescence, Military Psychology, Journal of Political and Military Sociology, and Armed Forces & Society.

Book
xxiv, 459 p. : ill. ; 24 cm.
Disease processes among American Indians and Alaska Natives often have distinct manifestations that need to be considered by clinicians and health policy makers involved with these populations. Equally important, all aspects of Indian life--including health--are governed by the special relationship between Indian tribes and the U.S. federal government. In American Indian Health, Everett R. Rhoades brings his extensive expertise to bear on these themes--he is an American Indian physician specializing in internal medicine and infectious diseases; from 1982 to 1993 he served as assistant surgeon general, and he was the first Indian director of the Indian Health Service. In this book, Rhoades gathers experts to present a comprehensive assessment of the health of American Indian peoples and the delivery of health services to them. The book is organized into four parts. Part I describes the migration and history of aboriginal peoples in North America, health conditions before Columbus, and demographic characteristics of Indians. Part II discusses the relations of Indian nations to the U.S. government, the history and organization of the Indian Health Service, and data sources for the Indian population. Part III forms the bulk of the book (chaps. 7-22); it addresses specific health problems, including cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, injury, suicide, and alcoholism. Part IV looks at the interaction of traditional Indian and modern Western medicine, cultural considerations involved in providing care to Indians, and research ethics. "The volume fills a previously vacant niche for scholars, students, policymakers, and clinicians with regard to the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives. American Indian Healthdeserves a place on the shelf of anyone with a serious interest in this field, as it stands alone as a single-volume reference about health and health care of American Indians and Alaska Natives"--JAMA "This book tells one of the great untold tales of health care in the United States: the campaign to improve the health of American Indians and Alaskan Natives. The true richness of this book lies in the beginning and the end. Its opening chapters start with a fascinating look at the origins of aboriginal populations of North America and their health conditions before Columbus. Then, the authors take us to an insightful historical and contemporary view of Indian-white relations and the history and organization of the Indian health care systems. The ending of the book covers such essential topics as traditional Indian medicine, cultural considerations in providing care to this population, conducting research among American Indians/Alaskan Natives, and the future of Indian health care in the United States."--Archives of Pediatrics & Adolescent Medicine "This very needed book gives an overview of the history and current state of American Indian health with an emphasis on the role of the Indian Health Service. The book is important reading for scholars and students of public health and Indian policy, and it offers valuable insights to those working in public health programs in the developing world. It is also a very useful text for courses in public health, sociology, and epidemiology."--Philip A. May, The University of New Mexico "American Indian Health is a detailed, authoritative, and well-written volume that will be of great value to all those interested in American Indian/Native American health and public health in general." --Journal of Community Health "Well written and authoritative, and, in many parts, energetic and spirited. It provides excellent insights into the political and administrative arena of Indian health, as well as a review of some of the most important disease entities. In addition, it does so from a native perspective, blending in and emphasizing the cultural aspects of illness with the medical perspectives of those illnesses."--James M. Galloway, Lancet.

This anthology presents, for the first time, full texts of the twenty most important works of American legal thought since 1890. Drawing on a course the editors teach at Harvard Law School, the book traces the rise and evolution of a distinctly American form of legal reasoning. These are the articles that have made these authors - from Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., to Ronald Coase, from Ronald Dworkin to Catherine MacKinnon - among the most recognized names in American legal history. These authors proposed answers to the classic question: "What does it mean to think like a lawyer - an American lawyer?" Their answers differed, but taken together they form a powerful brief for the existence of a distinct and powerful style of reasoning - and of rulership. The legal mind is as often critical as constructive, however, and these texts form a canon of critical thinking, a toolbox for resisting and unravelling the arguments of the best legal minds.Each article is preceded by a short introduction highlighting the article's main ideas and situating it in the context of its author's broader intellectual projects, the scholarly debates of his or her time, and the reception the article received. Law students and their teachers will benefit from seeing these classic writings, in full, in the context of their original development. For lawyers, the collection will take them back to their best days in law school. All readers will be struck by the richness, the subtlety, and the sophistication with which so many of what have become the cliches of everyday legal argument were originally formulated.

This book, in its 113th year, provides insight into major trends in the North American Jewish community, examining Jewish education, New York Jewry, national and Jewish communal affairs, and the US and world Jewish population. It also acts as an important resource with its lists of Jewish Institutions, Jewish periodicals, and academic resources as well as Jewish honorees, obituaries, and major recent events. It should prove useful to social scientists and historians of the American Jewish community, Jewish communal workers, and the press, among others. For more than a century, the American Jewish Year Book has remained and continues to serve, even in the Internet age, as the leading reference work on contemporary Jewish life. This year's volume, with its special reports on Jewish education and the New York community and its updates on Jewish population statistics, Jewish institutions, and the major Jewish figures who passed in the year past, continues this splendid tradition. Pamela S. Nadell, Chair, Department of History, American University and Co-editor, Making Women's Histories: Beyond National Perspectives The 2013 volume of the American Jewish Year Book impressively demonstrates that Arnold Dashefsky and Ira Sheskin have restored this important resource in all its former glory. Bruce A. Phillips, Professor of Sociology and Jewish Communal Service, Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion, Los Angeles Having a current American Jewish Year Book on my shelf is like having a panel of experts on American Jewish life at the ready, prepared to give me thoughtful, accurate answers and observations on the key issues, trends and statistics that define our continental Jewish community today. Well into its second century, the American Jewish Year Book continues to be an essential resource for serious leaders, practitioners and students who seek to ground their work in solid research and up-to-date data.
