Politics and Welfare in Birmingham 1900 1975

Politics and Welfare in Birmingham  1900   1975

Blacks became politically potent during the 1940s, when a sophisticated voter
registration drive in 1945 increased the number of black voters from 3,000 to
21,000 the following year, from 4% of the registered voters in the city to 27.2%.

This well-written volume explores the relationships between politics and welfare programs for low-income residents in Birmingham during four periods in the twentieth century: • 1900-1917, the formative period of city building when welfare was predominantly a responsibility of the private sector; • 1928-1941, when the Great Depression devastated the local economy and federal intervention became the principal means of meeting human need; • the mid 1950s, when the lasting impacts of the New Deal could be assessed and when matters of race relations became increasingly significant; • 1962-1975, when an intense period of local government reform, the Civil Rights movement, federal intervention in the form of the War on Poverty, and increasing demands for citizen participation all reinforced one another. From the time of its founding in 1871, Birmingham has had a biracial population, so the theme of race relations runs naturally throughout the narrative. LaMonte pays particular attention to those efforts to achieve a more harmonious biracial community, including the failed effort to establish an Urban League in the 1940s, the progressive activities of the Community Chest’s Interracial Division in the 1950s, which were abruptly terminated, and the dramatic events of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, when local events were elevated to international significance.

The book explores how Churchill was portrayed in the UK press during the Second World War, comparing his depictions in Scottish, Welsh, Northern Irish, and provincial English newspapers. By using a variety of newspapers from these areas, it examines local opinions about Churchill at the time he was the wartime prime minister. It analyses how Churchill was received and depicted by newspapers in the UK and why differences in these depictions emerged in each area. It contributes to the study of public opinion in the war and of Churchill’s reputation, of the British media, as well as to the study of the notion of Britishness, focusing on local perspectives.

By 1900, downtown Pittsburgh, known as the Golden Triangle, had become a classic central business district at the confluence of three rivers: the Allegheny, the Monongahela, and the Ohio. The valleys of the three rivers were lined with the factories and mills that made Pittsburgh the aforge of the nation.a Great industrialists such as Andrew Carnegie and George Westinghouse made Pittsburgh the center of the American iron, steel, aluminum, glass, and oil industries. With their success, money poured into Pittsburghas banks, providing means for the cityas growth. The years between 1900 and 1945 witnessed the peak of Pittsburghas commercial development and industrial might. Pittsburgh: 1900a1945 features postcard views taken during this period and illustrates the power, wealth, and beauty of the city of Pittsburgh during its era of industrial greatness.

More than fifty specialists have contributed to this new edition of volume 3 of The Cambridge Bibliography of English Literature. The design of the original work has established itself so firmly as a workable solution to the immense problems of analysis, articulation and coordination that it has been retained in all its essentials for the new edition. The task of the new contributors has been to revise and integrate the lists of 1940 and 1957, to add materials of the following decade, to correct and refine the bibliographical details already available, and to re-shape the whole according to a new series of conventions devised to give greater clarity and consistency to the entries.
