Exuberantly written, highly informative, Jensen's Stories That Changed America examines the work of twenty-one investigative writers, and how their efforts forever changed our country. Here are the pioneering muckrakers, like Upton Sinclair, author of the fact-based novel The Jungle, that inspired Theodore Roosevelt to sign the Pure Food and Drug Act into law; "Queen of the Muckrakers" Ida Mae Tarbell, whose McClure magazine exposés led to the dissolution of Standard Oil's monopoly; and Lincoln Steffens, a reporter who unearthed corruption in both municipal and federal governments. You'll also meet Margaret Sanger, the former nurse who coined the term "birth control"; George Seldes, the most censored journalist in American history; Nobel Prize-winning novelist John Steinbeck; environmentalist Rachel Carson; National Organization of Women founder Betty Friedan; African American activist Malcolm X; consumer advocate Ralph Nader; and Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein, the Pulitzer Prize-winning reporters whose Watergate break-in coverage brought down President Richard Nixon. The courageous writers Jensen includes in this deftly researched volume dedicated their lives to fight for social, civil, political and environmental rights with their mighty pens.

Over the past two decades public accountability has become not only an icon in political, managerial, and administrative discourse but also the object of much scholarly analysis across a broad range of social and administrative sciences. This handbook provides a state of the art overview of recent scholarship on public accountability. It collects, consolidates, and integrates an upsurge of inquiry currently scattered across many disciplines and subdisciplines. It provides a one-stop-shop on the subject, not only for academics who study accountability, but also for practitioners who are designing, adjusting, or struggling with mechanisms for accountable governance. Drawing on the best scholars in the field from around the world, The Oxford Handbook of Public Accountability showcases conceptual and normative as well as the empirical approaches in public accountability studies. In addition to giving an overview of scholarly research in a variety of disciplines, it takes stock of a wide range of accountability mechanisms and practices across the public, private and non-profit sectors, making this volume a must-have for both practitioners and scholars, both established and new to the field.

Das große US-Epos um Klassenjustiz und staatliche Willkür jetzt in deutscher Neuübersetzung Vom Tellerwäscher zum Märtyrer – die Namen Sacco und Vanzetti stehen für den Wirklichkeit gewordenen amerikanischen Alptraum. Ihr Schicksal erschütterte Millionen Menschen weltweit in ihrem Glauben an Recht und Ordnung. Upton Sinclair, engagierter Romancier und Gesellschaftskritiker, inszenierte die realen Geschehnisse der Zwanzigerjahre als fesselndes literarisches Epochendrama. Glamour, Jazz und endlose Partys: Das waren die Roaring Twenties. Allerdings ist das nur die halbe Wahrheit – Upton Sinclair zeigt uns die ganze. Denn während die Happy Few feierten, wurden die Massen mittels brutaler Klassenjustiz niedergehalten. Am Beispiel der einflussreichen Ostküsten-Sippe Thornwell zeigt «Boston», wie das System staatlich sanktionierter Korruption funktionierte. Als Kulminationspunkt dient der Schauprozess gegen die zwei bekanntesten Justizopfer der amerikanischen Geschichte, Nicola Sacco und Bartolomeo Vanzetti, die 1927 wegen Mordes hingerichtet wurden. In diesem ergreifenden Buch geht es um die moralische Glaubwürdigkeit offizieller Repräsentanten und Institutionen, um Menschenliebe und Bürgerpflicht, um Gerechtigkeit und den Mut zur Wahrheit.
