281 RAPHAEL, JODY. Freeing Tammy: Women, Drugs And Incarceration.
Northeastern University Press, Boston / University Press of New England, Hanover: 2007. 1555536735 / 9781555536732 Northeastern Series on Gender, Crime, and Law h Hardcover, no dustjacket (as issued). Brand new book. 
The latest volume in the popular trilogy of books about women, poverty, and violence. Tammara (Tammy) Johnson is an African-American woman in her fifties, an ex-addict with a 19-year heroin habit and a felony record, who works as the job development trainer for an in-patient drug treatment program in south suburban Chicago. Raised in a middle-class family, Tammy left home early because she could not live up to parental expectations. She turned to drugs and crime and was eventually incarcerated for selling drugs. This book, the third in a trilogy about Chicago women by noted author Jody Raphael, is the story of Tammy's metamorphosis. Raphael's narrative, based on extensive interviews with Tammy and family members, shows the detrimental effects of incarceration on an already abused woman and illuminates Tammy's efforts to release herself from the literal and figurative prisons of abuse, addiction, crime, fear, and hopelessness. Raphael uses the transit of Tammy's life—from childhood trauma to adult rehabilitation—to investigate the linkages between childhood sexual assault and domestic violence with women's drug addiction and then with crime. She uses Tammy's own words to demonstrate how childhood sexual assault and violence can make women poor and how dysfunctional coping strategies keep them poor. Tammy's story is a reminder that violence against women and girls economically impoverishes them by trapping them in addictions leading to crime and other self-destructive activities. "Part great journalism and part thorough research, Jody Raphael's book is an inspirational story of resilience and redemption wrapped in a deeply disturbing indictment of America's destructive response to women and their children trapped in the cycle of sexual violence, drugs, and imprisonment." —Peter Edelman, Professor of Law, Georgetown University Law Center and former Assistant Secretary U.S. Department of Health and Human Services "In Freeing Tammy, Jody Raphael manages to tell a deeply engaging and moving story that simultaneously conveys important truths about the nature of imprisonment, the promise of redemption, and the strength and courage that it takes to overcome trauma and oppression. Like the life it describes, it is an extraordinary and inspiring achievement."—Craig W. Haney, Professor of Psychology, University of California, Santa Cruz The Table of Contents of this book is as follows: Prologue • Betrayal • Trial • County Jail • Prison • Numbing • Minimum Security • Terrence Alone • The Basement • Forgetting • Out of the Basement • Epilogue: Back to County • Notes • Bibliography • Acknowledgments • Index. Jody Raphael is Senior Research Fellow, Schiller, DuCanto & Fleck Family Law Center, DePaul University College of Law. Freeing Tammy is the final volume of Raphael's trilogy about women, poverty, and violence in contemporary Chicago that includes Saving Bernice: Battered Women, Welfare, and Poverty (NUP, 2000) and Listening to Olivia: Violence, Poverty, and Prostitution (NUP, 2004).

283 RAPHAEL, JODY. Listening To Olivia: Violence, Poverty, And Prostitution.
University Press of New England, Lebanon: 2004. 1555535968 / 9781555535964 s Softcover. Brand new book. 
The harrowing story of a woman's descent into prostitution and addiction, the remarkable tale of her recovery, and an expos of the global trafficking industry. For nineteen years, Olivia lived the shadowy life of stripper, streetwalker, and heroin addict on the fringes of society. Leaving a troubled home at age sixteen to land a seemingly glamorous job at a Chicago stripclub, she became trapped in a web of prostitution and drug addiction that eventually forced her onto the streets and into a world of hardship at the hands of abusive men. But Olivia, a resourceful, vibrant woman of color, ultimately escaped the prostitution lifestyle and is now director of addiction services at a community counseling program, working to support drug-dependent women. Listening to Olivia is the compelling account of her descent into poverty and abuse together with her hard fought recovery. By assimilating new research on the women and girls in prostitution—in addition to their male customers—Jody Raphael discovers that experiences like Olivia's are alarmingly common and argues that the sex trade as an institution promotes violence against women. Smashing both the common stereotype of the depraved streetwalker and abstract feminist arguments legitimizing prostitution as the sexual liberation of women, the author uncovers an emerging multimillion-dollar global trafficking industry that detains women in a violent cycle of exploitation and dependence. Olivia's own insights on her turbulent childhood, stripping in clubs, soliciting on the street, drug addiction, brutal pimps, her three pregnancies, and her extraordinary transformation highlight important new questions: who are the men who buy sex from such poor, strung out women; and why are so many of these men so violent? Olivia's story gives a human face to the overwhelmingly low-income, non-white, and unempowered young women in prostitution today. Combined with a wealth of new findings, this gripping and accessible study challenges the academy, the legal system, and society as a whole to wake up and listen to the women like Olivia. "A major contribution to our understanding of the commercial sex industry in the United States. Jody Raphael weaves Olivia's story with research findings to provide a compelling, brutally honest, and thoroughly grounded portrait of the entrapment of impoverished women in prostitution, and the violence that is integral to its maintenance. This is a must read." —Jody Miller, University of Missouri-Saint Louis

296 RIESMAN, DAVID; GLAZER, NATHAN & DENNEY, REUEL. The Lonely Crowd: A Study Of The Changing American Character.
Doubleday, Garden City: 1953. Anchor Books Edition. Abridged by the authors. s Softcover. Reading copy. 
The hypothesis of this book is that there has been a change in the character of the American people, that where once men whose character was "inner-directed" dominated our society, the tendency is now toward the dominance of the "other-directed" character. The inner-directed persons are those who internalize adult authority - the pioneers, the individualist; the other-directed persons are those whose character is formed chiefly by the example of their peers and contemporaries. The substance of the book is concerned with the confluence and consequences of these two types in contemporary American society. Includes an Index.

300 ROSENOW, MICHAEL K. Death And Dying In The Working Class, 1865-1920.
University of Illinois Press, Urbana and Chicago: 2015. h Hardcover as issued without dustjacket. Brand new book. 
The inequalities surrounding the great equalizer The post-Civil War Industrial Age brought fundamental changes to the economy and its workers, forcing Americans to reassess the meaning of life and death. This illuminating study of working-class rituals of dying and the politics of death explores how Americans struggled to understand the broader forces transforming their worlds. Michael K. Rosenow investigates working people's beliefs and practices in this important era by homing in on three overarching questions: How did workers, their families, and their communities experience death? Did various identities of class, race, gender, and religion coalesce to form distinct cultures of death for working people? And how did people's attitudes toward death reflect notions of who mattered in U.S. society? Drawing from an eclectic array of sources ranging from Andrew Carnegie to grave markers in Chicago's potter's field, Rosenow portrays the complex political, social, and cultural relationships that fueled the industrial ascent of the United States. Michael K. Rosenow is an assistant professor at the University of Central Arkansas. "Through portraits of industrial accidents, political funerals, and burial rituals, this compelling reinterpretation of working-class culture and the making of labor solidarity highlights how bodies in their gendered, class, and ethnic valences matter--in death as well as life. Michael Rosenow captures the hazards of work in coal and steel in a world where cults of manliness and productivity proved deadly, but resistance and accommodation took multiple forms."--Eileen Boris, Hull Professor of Feminist Studies, University of California, Santa Barbara "Engaging, thoughtful, and very readable . . . It adds to our knowledge of how Americans responded to the changes brought by industrialization in the second half of the nineteenth century."--Robert V. Wells, author of Life Flows On in Endless Song: Folk Songs and American History "Rosenow usefully extends a now-rich literature on American memorial practices to the northern industrial working classes from the Civil War to World War I. . . . This pioneering study deserves wide attention."--Leon Fink, author of Sweatshops at Sea: Merchant Seamen in the World's First Globalized Industry, from 1812 to the Present
