              For more than fifty years, Robert McCloskey s classic work on the Supreme Court s role in constructing the US Constitution has introduced generations of students to the workings of our nation s highest court. As in prior editions, McCloskey s original text remains unchanged. In h...is historical interpretation, he argues that the strength of the Court has always been its sensitivity to the changing political scene, as well as its reluctance to stray too far from the main currents of public sentiment. In this new edition, Sanford Levinson extends McCloskey s magisterial treatment to address developments since the 2010 election, including the Supreme Court s decisions regarding the Defense of Marriage Act, the Affordable Care Act, and gay marriage. The best and most concise account of the Supreme Court and its place in American politics, McCloskey's wonderfully readable book is an essential guide to the past, present, and future prospects of this institution.

              The Jazz Age. The phrase conjures images of Louis Armstrong holding court at the Sunset Cafe in Chicago. But the Jazz Age was every bit as much of a Paris phenomenon as it was a Chicago and New York scene. The author provides an alternative history of African American music and m...usicians in France.

              Chicago Guide to Preparing Electronic Manuscripts: For Authors and Publishers

              Chicago Guide to Preparing Electronic Manuscripts: For Authors and Publishers (Trade Paperback / Paperback, Revised edition)

              This guide to preparing manuscripts on computer offers authors and publishers practical assistance on how to use authors' disks or tapes for typesetting. When the thirteenth edition of The Chicago Manual of Style was published in 1982, the impact of personal computers on the publ...ishing process had just begun to be felt. This new book supplements information in the Chicago Manual by covering the rapidly changing subject of electronic manuscripts. Since the early 1980s more and more authors have been producing manuscripts on computers and expecting their publishers to make use of the electronic version. For a number of reasons, including the proliferation of incompatible machines and software, however, publishers have not always found it easy to work with electronic manuscripts. The University of Chicago Press has been doing so since 1981, and in this book passes on the results of six years' experience with preparing such manuscripts and converting them to type.

              Common People: In Pursuit of My Ancestors
               

              Common People: In Pursuit of My Ancestors (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Family history begins with missing persons, Alison Light writes in Common People. We wonder about those we ve lost, and those we never knew, about the long skein that led to us, and to here, and to now. So we start exploring. Most of us, however, give up a few generations back. W...e run into a gap, get embarrassed by a ne er-do-well, or simply find our ancestors are less glamorous than we d hoped. That didn t stop Alison Light: in the last weeks of her father s life, she embarked on an attempt to trace the history of her family as far back as she could reasonably go. The result is a clear-eyed, fascinating, frequently moving account of the lives of everyday people, of the tough decisions and hard work, the good luck and bad breaks, that chart the course of a life. Light s forebears servants, sailors, farm workers were among the poorest, traveling the country looking for work; they left few lasting marks on the world. But through her painstaking work in archives, and her ability to make the people and struggles of the past come alive, Light reminds us that every life, even glimpsed through the chinks of the census, has its surprises and secrets. What she did for the servants of Bloomsbury in her celebrated Mrs. Woolf and the Servants Light does here for her own ancestors, and, by extension, everyone s: draws their experiences from the shadows of the past and helps us understand their lives, estranged from us by time yet inextricably interwoven with our own. Family history, in her hands, becomes a new kind of public history.
