In 1901 Buffalo was the national symbol of the country s optimism, pride, and braggadocio. Toward the close of the century, it epitomizes the sense of economic and demographic crisis prevalent in American industrial cities. High Hopes analyzes and interprets the historical forces external and internal that have shaped New York s second largest city. It examines the historical shifts that have served as a catalyst in Buffalo s growth, charting the city s evolution from a small frontier community through its development as a major commercial center and its emergence and eventual decline as a significant industrial metropolis. Mark Goldman looks at the detailed patterns of local daily life from the settlement of the village in the early nineteenth century to the tragedy of Love Canal. In the process, he covers a wide range of topics, including work, ethnicity, family and community life, class structure, and values and beliefs. By bringing to bear on the events and developments that have shaped Buffalo a broad range of subjects and ideas, Goldman helps readers to understand the vast array of complex forces at work in the historical development of all American cities."

As the 20th century reached mid-point, two undergraduates with “high hopes” and a dash of hero worship for things literary dream of setting the post-war world on fire. One hops into an MG roadster and drives expectantly across North America to meet his idol Christopher Isherwood; soon after, he crosses the Atlantic to attend Balliol College, Oxford. The other fights his way up McGill's student ladder to edit their literary magazines, helping to earn his tuition by bruising labour in BC's Forestry Service. In this collection of their letters (including unpublished correspondence from Christopher Isherwood, Sean O'Casey, Patrick Anderson, and other contemporary writers) Paul Almond and Michael Ballantyne have woven journal entries, photographs and other memorabilia together with their present-day reflections to open a bright window on our collective past.

Could this be the final victory for civil rights, or the first of many to come? When Henry Louis Gates spoke out about his ridiculous arrest, he stated a truth few Americans?including President Obama?are eager to discuss: there is no such thing as a post-racial America. When it comes to race, the United States has come a long way, but not far enough and not fast enough. Every day, we cope with casual racism, myriad indignities, institutional obstacles, post-racial nonsense, and peers bent on self-destruction. The powers that be, meanwhile, always seem to arrive with their apologies and redress a day late and a dollar short. This book takes a close look at the lives of African-Americans from diverse backgrounds as Obama?s victory comes to play a personal role in each of their lives. Every tale delves into the complex issues we will have to deal with going forward: The many challenges young black men face, such as subtle persistent racism The stagnation of blacks vis ? vis whites Widespread black participation in the military despite widespread anti-war sentiments The decline of unions even as organized labor becomes the primary vehicle for black progress The challenges of interracial families The lack of good schools or healthcare for the poor The inability of well-off blacks to lift up others Barack Obama will deliver his first official State of the Union address in January 2010, and A Day Late and a Dollar Short will deliver an altogether different picture of the way things really under the first black president.
