"Yale under God" - does it sound unlikely these days? That's probably because of what has been happening in the past few decades in our country. Our colleges - and America - were founded by believers in God, but there are those revisionists who would argue otherwise. In an effort to include all cultures in this melting-pot of a nation, today's humanists with their man-made ideas have cut any mention of God out of classrooms and textbooks, contributing to the decline of American education. This book is an attempt to restore the Christian history of Yale and its town, New Haven. Beginning with the Puritans in 1638 to the present day, it also reveals a dark side of Yale, along with points of "Lux et Veritas" (light and truth). A few years ago Yale celebrated several events that brought out facets of its history - the 300th birthdays of both the University and Jonathan Edwards, one of its first students (1701 and 1703); the 350th birthday of Elihu Yale; and the Amistad Affair, which was made into a movie by Stephen Spielberg. A few people appreciated these events for a moment, but what long-lasting effect did they have? From the author, who worked at Yale for two decades and has lived in New Haven for even longer, comes the hope that this book will shed some light on our past, be a tool in the reader's hands, and ultimately be a guide to future generations.

Excerpt from Report of a Missionary Tour Through That Part of the United States Which Lies West of the Allegany Mountains, 1815: Performed Under the Direction of the Massachusetts Missionary Society More than 700 dollars have been subscribed, since we came into the Territories, to purchase Bibles to give to the destitute. We have no doubt that these subscriptions will be very considerably increased. But a few of the people, disposed to favour the object, have had an opportunity to subscribe. Papers will be more generally circulated, when the societies shall go into operation. Some parts of the Ter ritories are settling very fast. Many poor people are among the num ber of'those, who go north of the Ohio. If those good men, who are disposed to favour the promotion of religion and morality, by the gen eral distribution of the Sacred Scriptures among the destitute, con tinue to exert themselves, as we believe they will, still resources cannot be collected probably by them, more than sufficient to supply the yearly increasing destitute part of their population. From the best estimate, we could make, with respect to the proportionate num ber of destitute families in the three territories, we are led to believe, that '10 or Bibles are necessary, in order to supply each desti tute family. You will readily perceive, Sir, that living as most of the people in the Territories do, 1000 or 1500 miles from any place where the Bible is printed, very many of them must for a long time remain destitute, unless their necessities can be relieved, at least in a considerable de gree, by the Managers of Bible Societies in the different States. From the 600 Bibles committed to our care by the Committee of the Massachusetts Bible Society, 7 5 were ordered to the care of certain gentlemen in the Indiana Territory; 50 to Shawanee-town, to be dis tributed in the Illinois Territory; and 50 to St. Louis, to the care of Stephen Hempsted. Do, Sir, intercede with the managers of Bible Societies in your vicinity to aid in supplying the destitute poor in this portion of our country. The early part of December, we visited Lexington and Frankfort. Each of us at Frankfort had an opportu nity of preaching to a number of the members of the Legislature, and of presenting them with a view of the object of our/mission.

Seine Großeltern versuchten, mit Fleiß und Mobilität der Armut zu entkommen und sich in der Mitte der Gesellschaft zu etablieren. Doch letztlich war alles vergeblich. J. D. Vance erzählt die Geschichte seiner Familie — eine Geschichte vom Scheitern und von der Resignation einer ganzen Bevölkerungsschicht. Armut und Chaos, Hilflosigkeit und Gewalt, Drogen und Alkohol: Genau in diesem Teufelskreis befinden sich viele weiße Arbeiterfamilien in den USA — entfremdet von der politischen Führung, abgehängt vom Rest der Gesellschaft, anfällig für populistische Parolen. Früher konnten sich die »Hillbillys«, die weißen Fabrikarbeiter, erhoffen, sich zu Wohlstand zu schuften. Doch spätestens gegen Ende des 20sten Jahrhunderts zog der Niedergang der alten Industrien ihre Familien in eine Abwärtsspirale, in der sie bis heute stecken. Vance gelingt es wie keinem anderen, diese ausweglose Situation und die Krise einer ganzen Gesellschaft eindrücklich zu schildern. Sein Buch bewegte Millionen von Lesern in den USA und erklärt nicht zuletzt den Wahltriumph eines Donald Trump.

In The Death and Life of Great American Cities durchleuchtet Jane Jacobs 1961 die fragwürdigen Methoden der Stadtplanung und Stadtsanierung in Amerika, der "New Yorker" nannte es das unkonventionellste und provozierendste Buch über Städtebau seit langem. Die deutsche Ausgabe wurde schnell auch im deutschsprachigem Raum zu einer viel gelesenen und diskutierten Lektüre. Sie ist jetzt wieder in einem Nachdruck zugänglich, mit einem Vorwort von Gerd Albers (1993), das nach der Aktualität dieser Streitschrift fragt.
