God Cried

Tony Clifton (Author)

Catherine Leroy (Author)

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Recounts the 1982 siege of Beirut by the Israeli Army and describes the pain and suffering caused by the fighting.

This review is from: God Cried (Hardcover)

Tony Clifton’s book “God Cried,” represents the main body of published photographic documentation of the Israeli terror-bombing of downtown Beirut, Lebanon in the summer of 1982, when clearly marked schools, hospitals and apartment blocs were deliberately and mercilessly bombed.

Tens of thousands of civilians died in this now forgotten holocaust. There is still some discussion of Sabra and Chatila, the September massacre of Palestinians by the Phalange under Israeli direction, but the far more horrid and extensive massacre represented by the indiscriminate aerial bombardment of the civilian sectors of Beirut is almost completely forgotten, seemingly even by many Lebanese, and certainly by the US media.

But until the last copy of “God Cried” is stamped out, the truth will out.
–Michael Hoffman, co-author, “The Israeli Holocaust Against the Palestinians.”

This shocking book reveals the pure, unadulterated terror the State of Israel inflicted on this sad land. Both the pictures and the prose bring home the brutality of what Israel did (and is doing) to the Palestinian people.

Some of the conclusions, written in 1982/83, hauntingly resonate today with a clarity that only those which have withstood the test of time can. Clifton, an award-winning journalist with Newsweek and photographer Cathrine Leroy (also winner of numerous prestigious prizes) have put together more than a documentary account of Israel’s 1982 invasion of Lebanon and the subsequent siege of Beirut and the massacres of Sabra and Shatila. With unquestionable evidence they have produced a scathing commentary on Israel‘s brutal war of terror waged against an innocent people.

This review is from: God Cried (Hardcover)

This book gives its readers a glimpse into the suffering the Palestinian and Lebanese people have had to endure, under the merciless assault of the Israeli Army, that seems to get away with all its terror with full Western backing, especially American.

Polarized America:

The Dance of Ideology and Unequal Riches

(Walras-Pareto Lectures)

Nolan McCarty (Author)

Keith T. Poole (Author)

Howard Rosenthal (Author)

Editorial Reviews

Review

“The topic of polarization—its causes and consequences—has risen to the front of the study of American politics. Nolan McCarty and his coauthors have written the gold standard against which others will be judged. Their analysis of the consequences of polarization has caused me to rethink my belief that there are no real policy consequences to the elite polarization of American politics.”
David W. Brady, Bowen H. and Janice Arthur McCoy Professor of Political Science and Leadership Values, Stanford University

“In this impressive book, McCarty, Poole, and Rosenthal break through the wall political scientists have inadvertently constructed between American political institutions and American society. Their findings concerning the links between mounting inequality, immigration, and the rise of political polarization are sure to generate much discussion. Their fine scholarship will enlighten that discussion as well.”
Paul Pierson, Professor of Political Science, University of California, Berkeley

Product Description

Choice Outstanding Academic Title, 2007.

The idea of America as politically polarized—that there is an unbridgeable divide between right and left, red and blue states—has become a cliché. What commentators miss, however, is that increasing polarization in recent decades has been closely accompanied by fundamental social and economic changes—most notably, a parallel rise in income inequality. In Polarized America, Nolan McCarty, Keith Poole, and Howard Rosenthal examine the relationships of polarization, wealth disparity, immigration, and other forces, characterizing it as a dance of give and take and back and forth causality.

Using NOMINATE (a quantitative procedure that, like interest group ratings, scores politicians on the basis of their roll call voting records) to measure polarization in Congress and public opinion, census data and Federal Election Commission finance records to measure polarization among the public, the authors find that polarization and income inequality fell in tandem from 1913 to 1957 and rose together dramatically from 1977 on; they trace a parallel rise in immigration beginning in the 1970s. They show that Republicans have moved right, away from redistributive policies that would reduce income inequality. Immigration, meanwhile, has facilitated the move to the right: non-citizens, a larger share of the population and disproportionately poor, cannot vote; thus there is less political pressure from the bottom for redistribution than there is from the top against it.

In “the choreography of American politics” inequality feeds directly into political polarization, and polarization in turn creates policies that further increase inequality.
