Hype, headlines and high profile cases : J. Edgar Hoover, print media and the career trajectories of top North Carolina g-men, 1937-1972

Bailey, J. A. 2004 (has links)
This thesis examines the relationship between J. Edgar Hoover and North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation directors and their career trajectories from 1937 to 1972 as a result of their public relations practices in high profile case investigations in the print media. Although researchers argue that leadership characteristics impact law enforcement executives’ careers, an overlooked component is the relationship between directors’ career trajectories and print media when reporting on high profile cases. This thesis examines the consequences of high profile case investigations in the print media and directors’ career trajectories. Namely, J. Edgar Hoover and State Bureau of Investigation directors’ career trajectories are examined to demonstrate how directors used the print media to prolong their tenure. This thesis argues that State Bureau of Investigation directors modelled their public relations style in the print media and high profile investigations after Hoover’s in order to accomplish a positive career trajectory. This thesis also argues that career trajectory outcomes of State Bureau of Investigation directors who emulated Hoover’s style of using the print media in high profile investigations were distinguished by prolonged career tenures. State Bureau of Investigation directors less efficacious in emulating Hoover’s style were characterized with negative career trajectories. In order better to understand this career advancement outcome, the research problem is examined on the basis of a triangular relationship between Hoover’s public relations practices, the State Bureau of Investigation’s public relations practices that were modelled after Hoover, and print media’s coverage of high profile case investigations from both agencies. This thesis concludes that there is a direct correlation between law enforcement directors’ career advancements and their public relations practices related to print media coverage of high profile cases.

Prising the doors of empire : the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission and the American Quest for a new West Indies, 1938-45

Whitham, A. C. 1999 (has links)
This thesis places the Anglo-American Caribbean Commission, formed in 1942, within the context of the Anglo-American wartime 'special relationship' and examines the political, economic and security motives which lay at the heart of this unique collaboration. Promoted as means for rectifying the problems of a region of extreme need, the AACC only exposed and exacerbated the underlying antagonisms between Britain and the US over the economic and political structure of the world. Debates within the AACC over the role of the West Indian sugar industry, the regulation of tariffs and trade and the future of civil aviation mirrored wider rivalries between Britain and the US over the post-war world economy, the colonial world and their respective roles within a new economic order. What emerges is a picture of the AACC as a vehicle for maintaining the regional security interests of the US and for promoting its broader ambitions for the post-war world in the British territories of the Caribbean. For Britain, who resisted the collaboration, the AACC was part of the price which had to be paid for obtaining American friendship and material assistance in the war effort. The story of the AACC is significant not only for the light it shed upon the Anglo-American wartime relationship and how it exposed the antagonisms which lay so close to its surface, but also for the way it revealed the determination of the US to use the exigencies of war to impose its economic ideals upon Britain and of the tenacity of the Empire to defend even the smallest and least regarded of its possessions. The AACC was a battleground of conflicting British and American visions of a 'new' West Indies, a struggle that scarred the AACC from its inception and eventually led to its death as a truly Anglo-American enterprise.

Cuba in the American mind

Oatham, J. L. 2000 (has links)
The focus of this thesis is America's reaction to the Cuban Revolution of 1959. It is argued that this took the form of a creative construction of an image of Cuba in the American mind. Using original sources it contextualises images of and attitudes towards the island in a number of historical settings. Taking the Newtonian metaphor of an apple falling to the ground. Americans during the nineteenth century saw Cuba as a subject to the pull of political gravitation. During the Spanish American War the spectre of the Cuban independence necessitated a new image: the island became an errant child. This image held until the 1959 Revolution. In the early years of the 1960s American policy makers constructed a new image. After discussing this, the thesis moves on to consider other responses to the Revolution through examining its impact on writers such as Norman Mailer, Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti. The adoption of the Revolution by student radicals and advocates of black power is then explored. In spite of such commentator's suggestions that Cuba offered alternatives to contemporary American culture, by the close of the decade the dominant interpretation of the Cuban Revolution was fixed within a Cold War paradigm. The thesis concludes that this Cold War image has remained intact. Today America understands Cuba to be an island subject to a revolution betrayed, held within the grip of a communist and hence inherently evil regime. No accommodation is possible whilst Fidel Castro lives. The American image of Cuba remains frozen in the assumptions of the 1960s.
