Children and Drug Safety traces the development, use, and marketing of drugs for children in the twentieth century, a history that sits at the interface of the state, business, health care providers, parents, and children. This book illuminates the historical dimension of a clinical and policy issue with great contemporary significance—many of the drugs administered to children today have never been tested for safety and efficacy in the pediatric population. Each chapter of Children and Drug Safety engages with major turning points in pediatric drug development; themes of children’s risk, rights, protection and the evolving context of childhood; child-rearing; and family life in ways freighted with nuances of race, class, and gender. Cynthia A. Connolly charts the numerous attempts by Congress, the Food and Drug Administration, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and leading pediatric pharmacologists, scientists, clinicians, and parents to address a situation that all found untenable.

Demands placed on many young Americans as a result of the Cold War give rise to an increasingly age-segregated society. This separation allowed adolescents and young adults to begin to formulate an identity distinct from previous generations, and was a significant factor in their widespread rejection of contemporary American society. This study traces the emergence of a distinctive post-war family dynamic between parent and adolescent or already adult child. In-depth readings of individual writers such as, Arthur Miller, William Styron, J. D. Salinger, Tennessee Williams, Vladimir Nabokov, Jack Kerouac, Flannery O’Connor and Sylvia Plath, situate their work in relation to the Cold War and suggest how the figuring of adolescents and young people reflected and contributed to an empowerment of American youth. This book is a superb research tool for any student or academic with an interest in youth culture, cultural studies, American studies, cold war studies, twentieth-century American literature, history of the family, and age studies.

In a substantial new afterword to his classic account of the collapse of American triumphalism in the wake of World War II, Tom Engelhardt carries that story into the twenty-first century. He explores how, in the aftermath of September 11, 2001, the younger George Bush headed for the Wild West (Osama bin Laden, Wanted, Dead or Alive); how his administration brought victory culture roaring back as part of its Global War on Terror and its rush to invade Saddam Hussein's Iraq; and how, from its Mission Accomplished moment on, its various stories of triumph crashed and burned in that land.

Die Handlung des Romans schwingt in großen Bögen von den 50er Jahren in die heutige Zeit und zurück, fahrt von New York durch die Weiten Amerikas bis in die Wüste Arizonas. Nick Shay, der eine Schuld aus seiner Jugend in sich trägt, arbeitet und lebt mit seiner Familie in Arizona. In der Wüste von Arizona bemalt Klara Sax, die leidenschaftlich für ihre Unabhängigkeit von Familie und Konventionen gekämpft hat, den Abfall der Geschichte, ausrangierte B-52 Bomber, und schafft ein gigantisches Kunstobjekt. In New York, in der Bronx, hatten Nick und Klara einst eine kurze, leidenschaftliche Affäre. Ihre Lebensläufe, ihre Erinnerungen verbinden sich mit einer Vielzahl von unvergeßlichen Figuren, fiktiven und historischen, mit politischen, sportlichen und künstlerischen Ereignissen und mit einem Baseball, der 1951 bei einem berühmten Spiel geschlagen wurde, als zum gleichen Zeitpunkt die Sowjetunion ihre erste Atombombe zündete. Kunstvoll komponiert, in einer lebendigen, originellen und facettenreichen Sprache geschrieben, ist Unterwelt ein unvergleichlicher Roman, ein Bild Amerikas, ein Bild unserer Zeit und unserer Welt. In seinem großen Roman Unterwelt beschwört Don DeLillo ein faszinierendes Panorama der letzten Hälfte dieses Jahrhunderts. Unsere Alltagswelt, Kunst, Sport und Politik, die alles bestimmende Bilderflut von der Werbung bis zum Internet spiegeln sich im Leben der Figuren, in deren Mittelpunkt Nick Shay, Manager in einer Müllentsorgungsfirma, und Klara Sax, eine Konzeptkünstlerin, stehen.

Childhood and Modernity in Cold War Mexico City traces the transformations that occurred between 1934 and 1968 in Mexico through the lens of childhood. Countering the dominance of Western European and North American views of childhood, Eileen Ford puts the experiences of children in Latin America into their historical, political, and cultural contexts. Drawing on diverse primary sources ranging from oral histories to photojournalism, Ford reconstructs the emergent and varying meanings of childhood in Mexico City during a period of changing global attitudes towards childhood, and changing power relations in Mexico at multiple scales, from the family to the state. She analyses children's presence on the silver screen, in radio, and in print media to examine the way that children were constructed within public discourse, identifying the forces that would converge in the 1968 student movement. This book demonstrates children's importance within Mexican society as Mexico transitioned from a socialist-inspired revolutionary government to one that embraced industrial capitalism in the Cold War era. It is a fascinating study of an extremely important, burgeoning population group in Mexico that has previously been excluded from histories of Mexico's bid for modernity. Childhood and Modernity in Cold War Mexico City will be essential reading for students and scholars of Latin American history and the Cold War.
