Right from the Beginning by Patrick J. Buchanan
Requirements: .M4A/.M4B reader, 369 MB
Overview: Right from the Beginning is the personal memoir of Pat Buchanan, the story of how the most controversial conservative in America got where he is today, and how he came to believe as he does. It is the intimate first-person account of how the third son in a devout Catholic family of nine children followed his expulsion from Georgetown University at age 21 with achieving the distinction, two years later, without experience in journalism or politics, of being the youngest editorial writer in America; then, at 26, becoming Richard M. Nixon’s confidant as he began, despite being a twice-defeated ex-Vice President, the political comeback of the century.
But Right from the Beginning is more than a personal memoir, it is the sometimes hilarious, sometimes sad, poignant, and moving story of the Buchanan family; a book that brings alive again America in the forties and fifties, when “the faith was unquestioned and patriotism unconstrained”

Rage on the Right: The American Militia Movement From Ruby Ridge to the Trump Presidency, Second Edition by Lane Crothers
Requirements: .PDF reader, 7 MB
Overview: Rage on the Right examines the rise, fall, and reemergence of the militia/alt-right movement from the 1990s through 2018. Using the lenses of history, culture, ideology, and social movement theory Crothers explores the diverse ways contemporary right-wing social movements have used American social and economic context to build themselves into a potent force in American political life. Just as the 1990s militia movement drew life from deeply embedded values and myths central to American political culture and political history, so, too, do the contemporary militia and alt-right movements. Right-wing social movements are as American as apple pieand must be understood as a core and enduring component of American political life.
Ideal for undergraduate courses on social movements, political violence, and contemporary political history, this text explores the cultural rootedness of the militia and alt-right in America while also understanding the ways contemporary politics build on historical legacies to promote right wing populism in the United States.

The Right and Labor in America: Politics, Ideology, and Imagination by Nelson Lichtenstein, Elizabeth Tandy Shermer
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.5 MB
Overview: The legislative attack on public sector unionism that gave rise to the uproar in Wisconsin and other union strongholds in 2011 was not just a reaction to the contemporary economic difficulties faced by the government. Rather, it was the result of a longstanding political and ideological hostility to the very idea of trade unionism put forward by a conservative movement whose roots go as far back as the Haymarket Riot of 1886. The controversy in Madison and other state capitals reveals that labor’s status and power has always been at the core of American conservatism, today as well as a century ago.
The Right and Labor in America explores the multifaceted history and range of conservative hostility toward unionism, opening the door to a fascinating set of individuals, movements, and institutions that help explain why, in much of the popular imagination, union leaders are always "bosses" and trade union organizers are nothing short of "thugs." The contributors to this volume explore conservative thought about unions, in particular the ideological impulses, rhetorical strategies, and political efforts that conservatives have deployed to challenge unions as a force in U.S. economic and political life over the century. Among the many contemporary books on American parties, personalities, and elections that try to explain why political disputes are so divisive, this collection of original and innovative essays is essential reading.

No Right to Be Idle: The Invention of Disability, 1840s-1930s by Sarah F. Rose
Requirements: .PDF reader, 7.2 Mb
Overview: During the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, Americans with all sorts of disabilities came to be labeled as "unproductive citizens." Before that, disabled people had contributed as they were able in homes, on farms, and in the wage labor market, reflecting the fact that Americans had long viewed productivity as a spectrum that varied by age, gender, and ability. But as Sarah F. Rose explains in No Right to Be Idle, a perfect storm of public policies, shifting family structures, and economic changes effectively barred workers with disabilities from mainstream workplaces and simultaneously cast disabled people as morally questionable dependents in need of permanent rehabilitation to achieve "self-care" and "self-support."
By tracing the experiences of policymakers, employers, reformers, and disabled people caught up in this epochal transition, Rose masterfully integrates disability history and labor history. She shows how people with disabilities lost access to paid work and the status of "worker–a shift that relegated them and their families to poverty and second-class economic and social citizenship. This has vast consequences for debates about disability, work, poverty, and welfare in the century to come.
