IDA SUSSER NORMAN STREET PDF

Well-written, intelligent, and full of sensitively drawnportraits, it demonstrates the impact of political and economic changes on everyday lives. Excerpt In the face of the deterioration of city services, budgetary cutbacks, and the fiscal crisis in New York City, this book documents the implications of broad political and economic changes for the lives of working-class people. It describes the struggles of a community confronting overwhelming incursions on its resources and economic stability. And far from being apathetic, these residents have responded to their plight with energy and anger, fighting political holding actions for the survival of their neighborhood in the face of almost certain defeat. The study is set in a predominantly white working-class community -- the Greenpoint-Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn -- during the fiscal crisis and its aftermath. It demonstrates that politics is an integral part of community life and examines forms of political expression as reactions to changing conditions.

The original edition of this book Oxford explores working class consciousness, racism, ethnic identities and gender in the emergence of social movements in Greenpoint- Williamsburg Brooklyn sparked by the New York City fiscal crisis of , as the first neoliberal experiment.

However, it shows the ways in which all these groups were threatened in the rezoning process instigated by Mayor Bloomberg in to attract major corporate investors and an upscale international elite. The Updated edition follows the battle to save the affordable housing, diverse population, parks, swimming pool and accessible riverfront views which the community organizations had helped to create. However, they, too, were early displaced from previous centers such as Greenwich Village and Lower East Side and recognizing the writing on the wall in the new Brooklyn neighborhoods, many joined with working class movements to preserve their living spaces in Greenpoint and Williamsburg.

This book demonstrates the longterm struggles of community organizations to construct affordable living conditions with parks, decent schools and other facilities for poor and middle class people and documents both their viability over decades as well as the enormous forces they have had to contend with over the past decade. It discusses the ways in which women mobilized, from small group meetings to major demonstrations, to prevent AIDS in Southern Africa and how these social movements could be understood in their local, national and global context.

Following the methods of extended case analysis, the work considers the gendered framing of scientific research in the United States as well as at the global scale and the ways in which this affected the available funding and preventive methods in Southern Africa as well as the national and local political arenas framing AIDS prevention and treatment.

In part it is a study of the historical emergence of a national movement for AIDS treatment in the context of the immediate transition from apartheid in South Africa. The book documents the shifts in the political arena as the deaths from AIDS multiply in the face of silences about the disease at all scales.

The book outlines the interaction between denialism by political officials at the national level and the emergence of strong protest movements among men and women who began to recognize the massive numbers of people dying of AIDS and the practical implications of the denialist policy at the local level and ultimately were successful in changing AIDS policy in South Africa.
