Sweet Charity? book cover
Sweet Charity?
Emergency Food and the End of Entitlement
Janet Poppendieck - 1999-08-01 (впервые опубликовано в 1998)
Рейтинг Goodreads
This book delves into the topic of charity and its resurgence as a popular solution to poverty and hunger in the absence of government-sponsored welfare programs. Sociologist Janet Poppendieck critiques this approach, arguing that it creates stopgap solutions instead of consistent public policy, causing poverty to persist. Poppendieck shares firsthand accounts from those who receive meals from charitable efforts, enthusiastic volunteers, and directors who question the effectiveness of their programs. "Sweet Charity?" is a significant book that sheds light on the pitfalls of well-meaning but short-term charitable solutions to poverty.

@cddull I recommend reading Jan Poppendieck’s Sweet Charity and Mike Katz’s The Undeserving Poor for deep discussions of this longstanding problem.      источник

Acceptance by @eminietfeld should by read by everyone in the #RealCollege movement - and offered to high school and college students everywhere. It’s a brutally honest, brilliantly provocative book and I doubt you’ll ever forget it. I won’t. Thank you for you @eminietfeld      источник

Год магического мышления book cover
Год магического мышления
Joan Didion - 2007-02-13 (впервые опубликовано в 2005)
Рейтинг Goodreads
“Год магического мышления” — правдивый и горький рассказ о переживании утраты. Джоан Дидион описывает, как она прожила год после скоропостижной смерти мужа, с которым она была вместе сорок лет. Ее мучает один вопрос: могла ли она как-то повлиять на случившееся, могла ли распознать знаки, которые расставляла судьба? Или это были не знаки? Она подмечает в себе признаки магического мышления и пытается разобраться со своим сознанием, своим восприятием, своей памятью.

Leaving Isn't the Hardest Thing

Рейтинг Goodreads
A collection of deeply personal essays exploring cults, homelessness, hunger, and identity, while uncovering unexpected light and humor.

More Than an Ally book cover
More Than an Ally
Michael L Boucher - 2020-09-14
Рейтинг Goodreads
More Than an Ally is a empowering framework for white teachers to interrogate their racial privilege and connect with their African American students. It offers guidance for teachers seeking to develop their intent toward Caring Solidarity, ultimately creating more equitable and humane classrooms. Picking up this book is an act of defiance or devotion to the art of teaching in today's tense climate around race. The Caring Solidarity framework is a valuable tool for teachers embarking on the journey to create more inclusive and supportive classroom environments.
Sara Goldrick-Rab
...”Picking up this book and considering its contents is either an act of defiance or one of devotion.” For me, it’s about interrogating my whiteness & figuring out what “caring solidarity” with #RealCollege students really looks like.      источник

Слишком много и всегда недостаточно
How My Family Created the World’s Most Dangerous Man
Mary L. Trump - 2020-07-14
Рейтинг Goodreads
Летом 1960 года в офисе Trump Management появился наследник строительной империи Фреда Трампа. Вместе с отцом он участвовал во всех значимых проектах, ходил на заседания Демократической партии и посещал благотворительные приемы. Там он учился вести бизнес и заводить важные знакомства. Но это был не Дональд. Это был старший сын, Фредди, названный в честь отца. Дональда глава семейства не замечал и не делал на него ставок. Но прошло несколько лет, и память о первенце стерлась из истории фирмы, а его место занял тот, кого мы знаем сейчас как президента США. Дональд смог доказать отцу, что именно он достоин быть первым не только в семье, но и во всем мире. Что произошло в семье Трампов? Об этом рассказывает Мэри Трамп, племянница Дональда и дочь потерпевшего поражение Фредди.

I’m reading Mary Trump’s book. As the granddaughter of a psychoanalyst, it’s actually fascinating. She identifies the West Wing as essentially a “total institution” in sociological parlance- a great observation. Trump is institutionalized, and not for the first time.      источник
