Outrage: Art, Controversy, and Society explores controversy in the arts, and especially the extent to which such controversies are socially rather than just aesthetically conditioned. It pays special attention to the way these controversies move beyond the world of art and into the public sphere—and often return to reshape the art world itself. It investigates how and why this happens, with particular emphasis on the social dynamics involved, including class, religion, culture, and -above all- power. It argues that only through a deeper understanding of the interaction between these forces and art can we be in a better position to evaluate the controversies that rage around the place of artworks in a public setting. The book's case studies ultimately combine to provide much-needed insight into the range of vested interests that are manifest in 'the arts in society.'

Moral Outrage in Education

David E. Purpel is one of the most important theorists writing about education today. In this new collection of works, we are given intimate views of his perspectives on topics ranging from social justice and education to service learning. However, Purpel does far more than analyze issues. Beneath the polished surface of his writing lies a powerful, moral voice that engages readers and challenges them to question their basic assumptions about modern education and our society. His writing evokes a disturbingly emotional, as well as intellectual, response. To read these essays is to be brought into the same world of Kozol and Freire, but through a different door.

In 1982 and 1983, American marines were stationed in Beirut with a vaguely defined mission to keep the peace. In 1982, a new Lebanese president, Bachir Gemayel, was elected, but he was assassinated by Moslem terrorists before he could take office. The terrorists relentlessly pressed their guerrilla war, forcing the marines to stay in “the Root” and to participate in an increasingly tense and dangerous mission. Written and now revised by a retired Marine Corps captain who served in Beirut, this brutal, fast-moving novel about the events that led to a massacre of the marines describes Moslem terrorists; Arabs wiling to lay down their lives to stop the fighting; tough Israeli soldiers who deride American peace efforts; wise-guy journalists; and—of course—the marines. Outrage is a fast-paced, authentic, and at times disturbing tribute to those marines who gave their lives in Beirut, even as it angrily condemns the events and policies that led to the deaths of so many brave men.

This book is the first systematic study of investigative reporting in the post-Watergate era. The authors examine the historical roots, contemporary nature, and societal impact of this controversial form of reporting, which they call "the journalism of outrage." Contrary to the conventional wisdom that depicts muckrakers and policymakers as antagonists, the authors show how investigative journalists often collaborate with public policymakers to set the agenda for reform. Based on a decade-long program of research--highlighted by case studies of the life courses of six media investigations and interviews with a national sample of over 800 investigative journalists--they develop a new theory about the agenda-building role of media in American society.

Half of all illegal immigrants came into this country legally—and we have no way of knowing they’re still here! Congressmen are putting their wives on their campaign payrolls—so that campaign contributions are really personal bribes! The ACLU won’t allow its own directors free speech. Liberals want to strip us of the tools to stop terrorism. The UN is a cover for massive corruption—and eighty countries, who pay 12 percent of the budget, are blocking reform. Drug companies pay off doctors to write scripts—whether we need them or not. Teachers unions block the firing of bad teachers—and battle against higher education standards! Katrina victims are being stiffed by their insurance companies! Special interests cost our consumers $45 billion—through trade quotas that save only a handful of jobs! Never heard of these abuses? You won’t in the mainstream media. That’s why Dick Morris and Eileen McGann wrote Outrage. Their proposals: Ban immigration from terrorist countries Ban Congress putting spouses on their payroll Ban lobbyists who are related to senators or congressmen Ban nicotine additives to cigarettes Ban trade quotas that drive up prices and save few jobs Ban drug company bribes to doctors Ban teachers unions’ work rules that stop education reform Ban insurance companies from backing out on Katrina coverage In Outrage, you’ll get the facts—and learn what we can do about them. You won’t read about these outrages anyplace else; too many people are working hard to cover them up. Get them here instead—and learn how to fight the special interests of the left and right.

Social Movements in the Internet Age

Publisher: John Wiley & Sons

View: 9859

This book is an exploration of the new forms of social movements and protests that are erupting in the world today, from the Arab uprisings to the indignadas movement in Spain, and the Occupy Wall Street movement in the US. While these and similar social movements differ in many important ways, there is one thing they share in common: they are all interwoven inextricably with the creation of autonomous communication networks supported by the Internet and wireless communication. In this timely and important book, Manuel Castells – the leading scholar of our contemporary networked society – examines the social, cultural and political roots of these new social movements, studies their innovative forms of self-organization, assesses the precise role of technology in the dynamics of the movements, suggests the reasons for the support they have found in large segments of society, and probes their capacity to induce political change by influencing people’s minds. Based on original fieldwork by the author and his collaborators as well as secondary sources, this book provides a path-breaking analysis of the new forms of social movements, and offers an analytical template for advancing the debates triggered by them concerning the new forms of social change and political democracy in the global network society.

A Cycle of Outrage

America's Reaction to the Juvenile Delinquent in the 1950s

The youth culture is on everyone's lips today, as pressures build to ban controversial song lyrics, reintroduce school prayer, and prohibit teenagers' access to contraceptives. It's not the first time Americans have been outraged over the seuction of the innocent.. When James Dean and Marlon Brando donned their motorcycle jackets and adopted alienated poses in Rebel Without a Cause, East of Eden, and The Wild One, in the 1950's, so did countless numbers of American teenagers. Or so it seemed to their parents. American teenagers were looking and acting like juvenile delinquents. By mid-decade, the nation had reached a pitch of near obsession with the harmful effects of film, radio, comic books, and television on American youth. Experts across the land denounced mass culture as depriving young people of their innocence and weakening their parents' hold on them. By the end of the decade, the obsession had ended, although the actual numbers of juvenile delinquents had apparently risen. A Cycle of Outrage explores the 1950's debate over the media and juvenile delinquency among parents, professionals, and the creators of mass culture themselves. In this groundbreaking study, James Gilbert sees the attempt to blame the media as part of a larger reaction of discomfort echoed in recent debates over censorship. The book examines how the central phenomena of the 1950's--the development of youth culture and the rise of a mass media society--became intertwined and confused and argues that young people ceased to be a threat as they were recognized to be a market.

The Outrage Industry

Political Opinion Media and the New Incivility

In early 2012, conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh claimed that Sandra Fluke, a Georgetown University law student who advocated for insurance coverage of contraceptives, "wants to be paid to have sex." Over the next few days, Limbaugh attacked Fluke personally, often in crude terms, while a powerful backlash grew, led by organizations such as the National Organization for Women. But perhaps what was most notable about the incident was that it wasn't unusual. From Limbaugh's venomous attacks on Fluke to liberal radio host Mike Malloy's suggestion that Bill O'Reilly "drink a vat of poison... and choke to death," over-the-top discourse in today's political opinion media is pervasive. Anyone who observes the skyrocketing number of incendiary political opinion shows on television and radio might conclude that political vitriol on the airwaves is fueled by the increasingly partisan American political system. But in The Outrage Industry Jeffrey M. Berry and Sarah Sobieraj show how the proliferation of outrage-the provocative, hyperbolic style of commentary delivered by hosts like Ed Schultz, Bill O'Reilly, and Sean Hannity- says more about regulatory, technological, and cultural changes, than it does about our political inclinations. Berry and Sobieraj tackle the mechanics of outrage rhetoric, exploring its various forms such as mockery, emotional display, fear mongering, audience flattery, and conspiracy theories. They then investigate the impact of outrage rhetoric-which stigmatizes cooperation and brands collaboration and compromise as weak-on a contemporary political landscape that features frequent straight-party voting in Congress. Outrage tactics have also facilitated the growth of the Tea Party, a movement which appeals to older, white conservatives and has dragged the GOP farther away from the demographically significant moderates whose favor it should be courting. Finally, The Outrage Industry examines how these shows sour our own political lives, exacerbating anxieties about political talk and collaboration in our own communities. Drawing from a rich base of evidence, this book forces all of us to consider the negative consequences that flow from our increasingly hyper-partisan political media.

Fall River Outrage recounts one of the most sensational and widely reported murder cases in early nineteenth-century America. When, in 1832, a pregnant mill worker was found hanged, the investigation implicated a prominent Methodist minister. Fearing adverse publicity, both the industrialists of Fall River and the New England Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church engaged in energetic campaigns to obtain a favorable verdict. It was also one of the earliest attempts by American lawyers to prove their client innocent by assassinating the moral character of the female victim. Fall River Outrage provides insight in American social, legal, and labor history as well as women's studies.
