THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS 1-800-537-5487 67 Wrong Place, Wrong Time Trauma and Violence in the Lives of Young Black Men John A. Rich, M.D., M.P.H. Medical school taught John A. Rich how to deal with physi- cal trauma in a big city hospital but not with the disturbing fact that young black men were daily shot, stabbed, and beaten. This is Rich’s account of his personal search to find sense in the jux- taposition of his life and theirs. Young black men in cities are overwhelmingly the victims —and perpetrators—of violent crime in the United States. Troubled by this tragedy—and by his medical colleagues’ apparent numbness in the face of it—Rich, a black man who grew up in relative safety and comfort, reached out to many of these young crime victims to learn why they lived in a seemingly endless cycle of violence and how it affected them. The stories they told him are unsettling—and revealing about the reality of life in the urban ghettos of America. Mixing his own perspective with their seldom-heard voices, Rich relates the stories of young black men whose lives were violently disrupted—and their struggles to heal and remain safe in an environment that both denied their trauma and blamed them for their injuries. He tells us of people such as Roy, a for- mer drug dealer who fought to turn his life around and found himself torn between the ease of returning to the familiarity of life on the violent streets of Boston and accepting the tenu- December 192 pages 6 x 9 ous promise of a new, less dangerous one. 978-0-8018-9363-6 0-8018-9363-1 Rich’s poignant portrait humanizes young black men $24.95 / £13.00 hc Current Affairs and illustrates the complexity of a situation that defies easy answers and solutions.

Spence in Association with the B&O Railroad Museum Passengers who dined on the Baltimore and Ohio during the heyday of American railroading received five-star service: white tablecloths, china, and silver; food cooked from scratch; and the undivided attention of skilled waiters. The B&O’s cuisine won wide acclaim as the finest railway food in the country. Passen- gers enjoyed it as the slightly swaying dining car clicked along over the rails. Captivated by the romance of the subject, Thomas J. Greco and Karl D.

THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS www.press.jhu.edu  Railroads in the African American Experience A Photographic Journey Theodore Kornweibel, Jr. This fascinating book takes readers on an illustrated tour of the black railroad experience from slavery to Amtrak. With almost 200 images—many never before published—Theodore Kornweibel, Jr., examines the significant contributions of African Americans to the building, maintenance, operation, and profitability of the Ameri- can railway system. The history of American railroads, Kornweibel makes clear, cannot be separated from the African American experience. For over a century, railroading provided the most important industrial occupation for blacks. Brakemen, firemen, porters, chefs, mechan- ics, laborers—African Americans of both sexes have been essential to the daily operation and success of American railroads. The con- nections between railroads and the African American experience extend well beyond employment. Civil rights protests beginning in the late 19th century challenged railroad segregation and job discrimination; the major waves of black migration to the North Advance reading copiesdepended almost entirely on railroads; and railroad National media themes and imagery pen- National advertising etrated deeply into black art, literature, drama, folk- lore, and music.

THE JOHNS HOPKINS UNIVERSITY PRESS 1-800-537-5487  Good Vibrations The Physics of Music Barry Parker Why does a harpsichord sound different from a piano? For that matter, why does middle C on a piano differ from middle C on a tuning fork, a trombone, or a flute? Good Vibrations explains in clear, friendly language the out-of-sight physics responsible not only for these differences but also for the whole range of noises we call music. The physical properties and history of sound are fascinat- ing to study. Barry Parker’s tour of the physics of music details the science of how instruments, the acoustics of rooms, electron- ics, and humans create and alter the varied sounds we hear. Us- ing physics as a base, Parker discusses the history of music, how sounds are made and perceived, and the various effects of acting on sounds. In the process, he demonstrates what acoustics can teach us about quantum theory and explains the relationship be- tween harmonics and the theory of waves. Peppered throughout with anecdotes and examples illus- trating key concepts, this invitingly written book provides a firm grounding in the actual and theoretical physics of music.

Hughes, M.D. foreword by John T. Walkup, M.D. This guide offers parents fresh perspectives and simple skills to encourage good behavior in children and reduce stress for the entire family. Emphasizing personal choice, free will, and dispas- sionate parent-child interactions, Dr. William H. Hughes’s step- by-step approach has been developed, tested, and proven to work time and again by child psychiatrists. Dr. Hughes demonstrates how parents must allow their children to decide for themselves whether they will cooperate and how they will act. Effective parenting builds character and increases self-confidence. Here, kids learn that they can choose to behave—and be rewarded for it. Dr. Hughes recommends that parents: • Set expectations. Make clear what the expected behavior is, whether it’s doing homework or taking out the trash. • Monitor behavior. Keep an eye on what children are supposed to be doing, but let them decide for themselves whether they will complete the task. • Reward. Verbally praise good behavior and offer kids a Advance reading copies reward. Let them play video games for an hour or invite a Author appearances friend to a sleepover.
