Popular Culture in the Age of White Flight

Popular Culture in the Age of White Flight surveys the cultural history of Los Angeles in the decades between 1940 and 1970, illustrating how a regional pattern of decentralized urbanization gave shape to a new "white" suburban identity.

"In Popular Culture in the Age of White Flight, Eric Avila offers a unique argument about the restructuring of urban space in the two decades following World War II and the role played by new suburban spaces in dramatically transforming the political culture of the United States. Avila's work helps us see how and why the postwar suburb produced the political culture of 'balanced budget conservatism' that is now the dominant force in politics, how the eclipse of the New Deal since the 1970s represents not only a change of views but also an alteration of spaces."—George Lipsitz, author of The Possessive Investment in Whiteness

praise for The Age of the Network "A very stimulating, visionary account of how networks and networking are organizational structures and processes of the future."—Edgar H. Schein, Sloan Fellows Professor of Management Emeritus, MIT, Sloan School of Management "Networking — practical, down-to-earth, easily understood descriptions of how others have obtained a competitive edge." — William R. Johnson, General Manager, Networking Hardware Division, IBM "Collaborative advantage is the wave of the future; Lipnack and Stamps show how to catch that wave and ride it triumphantly. With memorable wit and wisdom, their book provides numerous valuable lessons for the challenging changes ahead: how to see further by sitting on boundaries, organize teams that really get something done, and loosen hierarchies without losing control."—Rosabeth Moss Kanter, Harvard Business School, Author of When Giants Learn to Dance and The Change Masters The Age of the Network shows how organizations can break through mental and bureaucratic log jams and open up new opportunities by creating links both inside and outside themselves. With numerous, real-world examples, authors Lipnack and Stamps demonstrate how to form interlocking, boundary-crossing teams and thus build a truly networked enterprise. Focusing on five essential principles of "teamnets" (networks of teams), this forward-looking book reveals ways organizations can use these networks to realize their full potential and sustain this new dynamic well into the future.

Bennett-Alexander and Hartmanâ¬"s, Employment Law for Business, 4/e, addresses law and employment decisions from a managerial perspective. It is intended to instruct students on how to manage effectively and efficiently with full comprehension of the legal ramifications of their decisions. Students are shown how to think and analyze employment law facts using concrete examples of management-related legal dilemmas without clear-cut solutions. The methods of arriving at resolutions are emphasized, so that when the facts of the workplace problem are not quite the same, the student can still reach a good decision based on the legal considerations required by law, which remain relevant.
