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: $15.53
Lowest used price: $4.81
List price: $19.95
Author: James T. Lemon
Brand: W.W. Norton & Co

“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.

The Immigration Crisis: Nativism, Armed Vigilantism, and the Rise of a Countervailing Movement

The Immigration Crisis: Nativism, Armed Vigilantism, and the Rise of a Countervailing Movement Lowest new price: $19.99
Lowest used price: $4.50
List price: $126.00
Author: Armando Navarro

Immigration remains one of the most pressing and polarizing issues in the United States. In The Immigration Crisis, the political scientist and social activist Armando Navarro takes a hard look at 400 years of immigration into the territories that now form the United States, paying particular attention to the ways in which immigrants have been received. The book provides a political, historical, and theoretical examination of the laws, personalities, organizations, events, and demographics that have shaped four centuries of immigration and led to the widespread social crisis that today divides citizens, non-citizens, regions, and political parties. As a prominent activist, Navarro has participated broadly in the Mexican-American community's responses to the problems of immigration and integration, and his book also provides a powerful glimpse into the actual working of Hispanic social movements. In a sobering conclusion, Navarro argues that the immigration crisis is inextricably linked to the globalization of capital and the American economy's dependence on cheap labor.
