The Story of the Savannah

An Episode in Maritime Labor-management Relations

From her conception in 1956, the N.S. Savannah--the world's first and only nuclear-powered merchant ship--was ill-starred. The Savannah was meant to revitalize the American Merchant Marine. She never fulfilled that hope. Before her first sea trial, the Savannah was embroiled in problems which reflected the complex nature of the entire maritime industry. In this detailed and controversial history, David Kuechle proposes some answers to the age-old maritime labor relations problem, assessing the implications of the Savannah story, not only for the maritime industry but for other industries concerned with technological change.

Set the Night on Fire

L. A. in the Sixties

Histories of the US sixties invariably focus on New York City, but Los Angeles was an epicenter of that decade's political and social earthquake. L.A. was a launchpad for Black Power where Malcolm X and Angela Davis first came to prominence and the Watts uprising shook the nation and home to the Chicano walkouts and Moratorium, as well as birthplace of 'Asian America' as a political identity, base of the antiwar movement, and of course, centre of California counterculture. Mike Davis and Jon Wiener provide the first comprehensive movement history of L.A. in the sixties, drawing on extensive archival research, scores of interviews with principal figures of the 1960s movements, and personal histories (both Davis and Wiener are native Los Angelenos). Following on from Davis's award-winning L.A. history, City of Quartz, Set the Night on Fire is a fascinating historical corrective, delivered in scintillating and fiercely elegant prose.
