Black Power in the Caribbean - Kate Quinn (Editor)
Call Number: Electronic book available on Ebrary (click the cover)
ISBN: 9780813049090
Publication Date: 2014-03-18
Power studies have been dominated by the North American story, but after decades of scholarly neglect, the growth of "New Black Power Studies" has revitalized the field. Central to the current agenda are a critique of the narrow domestic lens through which U.S. Black Power has been viewed and a call for greater attention to international and transnational dimensions of the movement. Black Power in the Caribbean highlights the unique origins and causes of Black Power mobilization in the Caribbean and its relationship to Black Power in the United States, ultimately situating the historical roots and modern legacies of the movement in a wider, international context.

The SAGE Encyclopedia of Economics and Society - Frederick F. Wherry (Editor); Juliet B. Schor (Editor)
Call Number: REF HB61/S24/2015/Vol. 1 -4 (on the Main Floor)
ISBN: 9781452226439
Publication Date: 2016-01-06
Economics is the nexus and engine that runs society, affecting societal well-being, raising standards of living when economies prosper or lowering citizens through class structures when economies perform poorly. Our society only has to witness the booms and busts of the past decade to see how economics profoundly affects the cores of societies around the world. From a household budget to international trade, economics ranges from the micro- to the macro-level.

The Encyclopedia of World History - Peter N. Stearns (Editor); William L. Langer
Call Number: Electronic book available on CREDO Reference (click the cover)
ISBN: 9780395652374
Publication Date: 2001-09-24
the ENCYCLOPEDIA continues to feature chronological entries grouped by geographic region, allowing readers to get an in-depth view of distinct events along with a virtual time line of human history. But this new edition is much more than an expansion of a classic; it reflects important recent changes in historical trends and historical thinking. In addition to showcasing traditional facts of national leadership and state power, the Encyclopedia embraces social and cultural developments, non-European history, women's history, religion, health, economics, technology, and other vital but less often reported aspects of the human drama. Here is a chronicle not only of major political events but of ordinary people, covering shifts in the relationships between men and women, developments in leisure, and demographic currents. And for all periods there are summaries of global developments that cannot be captured in national or regional frameworks.
