      The Privileged Poor reveals how—and why—disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges, and explains what schools can do differently if these students are to thrive. The Ivy League looks different than it used to. College presidents and deans of admission have opened their doors—and their coffers—to support a more diverse student body. This book argues that the military's decision is shaped by how it had been treated under autocracy. Militaries are more likely to thwart democratization when they had historically been coopted by their autocrats through a share of power or shared identity, and . *From Democracy to Freedom* grew out of years of dialogue between participants in social movements around the world. Exploring how recent uprisings have been catalyzed and limited by democratic discourse, *From Democracy to Freedom* explores the difference between government and self-determination, proposing new ways to understand what we’re doing when we make decisions together. In this pathbreaking work, now with a new introduction, Edward S. Herman and Noam Chomsky show that, contrary to the usual image of the news media as cantankerous, obstinate, and ubiquitous in their search for truth and defense of justice, in their actual practice they defend the economic, social, and political agendas of the privileged groups.

        "Congress's Constitution is a commanding exposition of Congress's powers vis-à-vis the other branches of the federal government. It is an important read for scholars of administrative law, legislation, and the separation of powers, and it should be required reading for new congressional staffers and federal agency legislative affairs personnel.
