At America's Gates: Chinese Immigration during the Exclusion Era, 1882-1943

At America's Gates: Chinese Immigration during the Exclusion Era, 1882-1943 Lowest new price: $32.04
Lowest used price: $22.58

Author: Erika Lee
Brand: Brand: The University of North Carolina Press

With the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, Chinese laborers became the first group in American history to be excluded from the United States on the basis of their race and class. This landmark law changed the course of U.S. immigration history, but we know little about its consequences for the Chinese in America or for the United States as a nation of immigrants.

At America's Gates is the first book devoted entirely to both Chinese immigrants and the American immigration officials who sought to keep them out. Erika Lee explores how Chinese exclusion laws not only transformed Chinese American lives, immigration patterns, identities, and families but also recast the United States into a "gatekeeping nation." Immigrant identification, border enforcement, surveillance, and deportation policies were extended far beyond any controls that had existed in the United States before.

Drawing on a rich trove of historical sources--including recently released immigration records, oral histories, interviews, and letters--Lee brings alive the forgotten journeys, secrets, hardships, and triumphs of Chinese immigrants. Her timely book exposes the legacy of Chinese exclusion in current American immigration control and race relations.

The Best Poor Man's Country: A Geographical Study of Early Southeastern Pennsylvania (Norton Library)

The Best Poor Man's Country: A Geographical Study of Early Southeastern Pennsylvania (Norton Library) Lowest new price: $16.33
Lowest used price: $6.50
List price: $19.95
Author: James T. Lemon

“This book deserves careful attention. . . . Lemon is a professional geographer, but historians will read his book as an imaginative approach to social history. . . . He demonstrates that geography, quite as much as demography, child psychology, or the sociology of the family, can organize and interpret data that has remained intractable to more conventional methodologies. . . . The Best Poor Man’s Country is a distinguished and important book, a fitting addition to the recent Chesapeake studies of Aubrey Land and the New England efforts of Greven, Lockridge, John Demos, and Sumner Chilton Powell.” ―John M. Murrin, American Historical Review

In many respects early Pennsylvania was the prototype of North American development. Its conservative defense of liberal individualism, its population of mixed national and religious origins, its dispersed farms, county seats, and farm-service villages, and its mixed crop and livestock agriculture served as models for much of the rural Middle West. To many western Europeans in the eighteenth century life in early Pennsylvania offered a veritable paradise and refuge from oppression. Some called it “the best poor man’s country in the world.” The Best Poor Man’s Country was the winner of the Albert J. Beveridge Award of the American Historical Society.

Introduction to Sport Law

Introduction to Sport Law Lowest new price: $14.84
Lowest used price: $1.50
List price: $84.00
Author: John O. Spengler
Brand: Brand: Human Kinetics

A comprehensive text on legal issues in sport, Introduction to Sport Law delivers the information students will need and sport management professionals require in order to navigate liability issues, protect the legal rights of their employees and athletes, and manage legal risk in their professions. Filled with real-world cases and examples, the text provides students with timely and relevant information that will help build enthusiasm for their future careers.

The outstanding author team presents legal issues in sport using a topical approach that is easily understood by readers with little or no legal background. Using straightforward, jargon-free explanations, Introduction to Sport Law guides readers through the major legal areas specific to the sport setting—including the legal system, tort law, risk management, contract law, agency law, employment law, constitutional law, gender equity, intellectual property, and antitrust law. The text is designed for sport law courses within a sport management program and uses concise examples relevant to sport managers.

Introduction to Sport Law begins with an overview of the legal system and presentation of legal foundations to give readers a context in which to consider subsequent chapters. Through its focus on legal concepts with direct application to the sport manager's role and a straightforward presentation devoid of legalese, Introduction to Sport Law provides readers with a resource that is more approachable and relevant than other sport law texts:

-Within each chapter, a brief introduction places the topic within a practical context.

-Legal perspectives of each topic are presented with clear explanations of related concepts.

-Extended, sport-related examples obtained from case law provide application of legal concepts, stimulate discussion about the application of law to current events, and enable students and sport managers to recognize possible areas of liability.

-A running glossary provides convenient access to definitions of unfamiliar terms.

-Chapters conclude with a brief recapitulation of important points, discussion questions, and hypothetical sport law scenarios.
In each chapter, the hypothetical scenarios serve as the basis for moot court group activities. Developed from the facts of several key cases relating to the chapter topic, these moot court experiences provide students with an interactive and lively way of understanding issues that may arise in a court setting and how cases may determine future law. As students call hypothetical witnesses to testify and argue various sides of a case, they are challenged to conceptualize and apply the concepts of sport law.

When adopted as a course textbook, Introduction to Sport Law also includes online access to an instructor guide, test package, and presentation package. The online instructor guide provides the structure and offers suggestions for group activities of the moot court cases in each chapter. The test and presentation packages fully incorporate and enhance the information presented in the text.

Introduction to Sport Law provides the most comprehensive and understandable presentation of legal issues in sport. This approach, specifically geared toward readers without a law background, allows students not only to learn the important concepts of sport law but also to get excited about a topic that can otherwise seem dry and technical. The incorporation of many real-world examples will assist readers in developing a knowledge base with clear application to their future or current sport professions.
