QUESTION: Christine Quinn

question / pregunta: 

We (The Radical Homosexual Agenda) are doing a demonstration against Christine Quinn's support of the NYPD parade permit rules on 4/19/06. We are putting together a bulleted fact sheet of the various nefarious things that City council speaker Christine Quinn has supported. We have good documentation on her present support of the NYPD but we are looking for her previous support, notably as a member of Guiliani's blue ribbon panel convened in the aftermath of the Diallo shooting where she supported the cops. We are also looking for examples of her support of gentrifaction projects in the city, etc. Basically, we are wanting to point out her hypocrisy where she plays the gay card but she is really pro-police, pro-gentrification etc.

Thanks so much.

QUESTION: book reviews?

question / pregunta: 


I'm looking for book reviews for the book called "The Modern School Movement" by Paul Avrich. (1980).

I've already searched Lexis/Nexis, Proquest Direct, Proquest Historical New York Times, Wilson Select, and the Alternate Press Index.

My school, however, in not very strong in historical sources, so I was hoping someone who was could find me a review or two. Obviously, full text would be best, but I'd be very happy with citations, especially to scholarly history journals, if any exist.

Thanks a bunch!


QUESTION: Use of the term "complicity"

question / pregunta: 

Does the term "complicity" NECESSARILY imply involvement with wrongdoing? Can it be used to describe involvement with something whose virtue is irrelevant or yet to be determined?
I'm hoping you can cite some non-archaic examples or precedents where the word is used in a neutral, ambiguous, or nonjudgemental sense.
