An argument that America's economy needs a strong and innovative manufacturing sector and the jobs it creates. “There's no author whose books I look forward to more than Vaclav Smil.” —Bill Gates In Made in the USA, Vaclav Smil powerfully rebuts the notion that manufacturing is a relic of predigital history and that the loss of American manufacturing is a desirable evolutionary step toward a pure service economy. Smil argues that no advanced economy can prosper without a strong, innovative manufacturing sector and the jobs it creates. Smil explains how manufacturing became a fundamental force behind America's economic, strategic, and social dominance. He describes American manufacturing's rapid rise at the end of the nineteenth century, its consolidation and modernization between the two world wars, its role as an enabler of mass consumption after 1945, and its recent decline. Some economists argue that shipping low-value jobs overseas matters little because the high-value work remains in the United States. But, asks Smil, do we want a society that consists of a small population of workers doing high-value-added work and masses of unemployed? Smil assesses various suggestions for solving America's manufacturing crisis, including lowering corporate tax rates, promoting research and development, and improving public education. Will America act to preserve and reinvigorate its manufacturing? It is crucial to our social and economic well-being; but, Smil warns, the odds are no better than even.

The first ever comprehensive history of this troubled city, the book includes more than 250 photographs amd images of the people and events that shaped East St. Louis. Andrew Theising, a professor of political science at Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville, examines the city's past from the prominent role it played in the growth of 19th century industrial America to its presently depleted state. For Theising, East St. Louis is more than just a river city suburb; it is an example of industry creating and then abandoning a city, and it is also one of the most misunderstood cities in America.

Many introductory texts claim to make sociology relevant to student interests. Perhaps no other text has done this so completely - and engagingly - as Connecting Sociology to Our Lives. Tim Delaney not only uses popular and contemporary culture examples, he explains sociology thoroughly within the frame of the contemporary culture of students - a culture shaped by political, economic, and environmental trends just as much as by today's pop stars. This book will help academics to engage their students in sociology through the prism of their own culture. It involves students in critical thinking and classroom discussion through the book's many 'What Do You Think?' inserts, and will inspire them to careers with the book's unique chapter, 'Sociology's Place in Society: Completing the Connection'.

Les Américains ne sont plus des Européens ; les États-Unis sont devenus une civilisation singulière, sans équivalent, profondément religieuse. Cette nation emportée par sa croyance en une mission démocratique envers le reste du monde nous devient toujours plus impénétrable, plus incompréhensible. Le pouvoir politique sous le contrôle vigilant du peuple et des médias, l'économie dictée par une concurrence sans relâche, l'intégration volontariste des minorités ethniques et de millions d'immigrés, l'enthousiasme des Églises, les ligues morales et les mouvements de rébellion, la violence et sa répression, obéissent à des principes qui ne sont pas communs en Europe. Le culte du corps, le sport et la sexualité ne suivent pas non plus nos codes. Cette civilisation américaine est si particulière que l'on ne peut plus parler d'un modèle qui serait exportable ; tant de singularité laisse le monde perplexe, fasciné ou hostile. Le malentendu transatlantique entre eux et nous n'est donc pas près de se dissiper, quels que soient les aléas de la politique intérieure et des conflits mondiaux. Mais ce livre qui en rend compte est avant tout un voyage, une collection de personnages célèbres ou inconnus, et une méditation de l'auteur, commencée à l'âge des premiers charters, en 1962, poursuivie jusqu'en 2004 dans l'Amérique de Bush et de Kerry. Guy Sorman, qui nous fit découvrir en 1983 et le reaganisme, poursuit ici sa description des États-Unis si proches de nous en apparence et en vérité si exotiques.
