...<b>Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics: Themes and Voices of Modernity (McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas)</b>, Barnard, F. M.
3 Barnard, F. M. ...Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics: Themes and Voices of Modernity (McGill-Queen's Studies in the History of Ideas)
Canada: Mcgill Queens Univ Press, 2007. 0773531297 / 9780773531291 First Edition. Soft cover.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality
F.M. Barnard goes beyond the seventeenth-century understanding of the social contract by making national self-enactment contingent on public reasons for individual liberty within civic mutuality.
He examines the possibilities and limits for a self-enacting, principled politics, acknowledging reason and self-enactment as central concepts of historical and political thinking. He argues, however, that reason must be seen as practical reason, which only indirectly acts as a cause, while self-enactment must be understood as operating in relation to reciprocity with the other. Reason and Self-Enactment in History and Politics also offers a reappraisal of basic political principles and constructs.
Barnard argues for bridging differences among a plurality of truths and forming practical judgments through cultivation of a sense of situational appropriateness.

...<b>Jukebox America:<br> Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.</b>, Bunch, William
8 Bunch, William ...Jukebox America:
Down Back Streets and Blue Highways in Search of the Country's Greatest Jukebox.

New York: St. Martin's Press 1994 0312110138 / 9780312110130 First Editon Hardcover in Jacket.
 
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bunch recounts his search for America's "best" jukebox, somewhat ambiguously defined as the one whose selection of songs is "in perfect sync with its time and place."

The book's subtext, however, is generational angst. Self-classified as a member of "Generation Y," Bunch takes up his mission as an expression of the restless, youthful energy he fears will be suppressed by his recent decision to marry and move to the suburbs.

His anxiety about his personal shift in direction translates into concern about cultural changes: the jukebox, a symbol of regional identity and cultural diversity, is threatened by the increasing homogenization of society.

...<b>State Crime, the Media, and the Invasion of Panama (Praeger Series in Criminology and Crime Control Policy)</b>, Johns, Christina J.;  Johnson, P. Ward
15 Johns, Christina J.; Johnson, P. Ward ...State Crime, the Media, and the Invasion of Panama (Praeger Series in Criminology and Crime Control Policy)
USA: Praeger, 1993. 0275943143 / 9780275943141 Hardcover.
 
No flaws or blemishes, Gift Quality.
Johns and Johnson analyze the invasion of Panama in order to explore the ways in which the War on Drugs has been used as an ideological justification for a projection of U.S. state power into Latin America.
They characterize the Bush Administration's reasons for the invasion as cynical ideological rhetoric which covered up strategic interests the United States had in deposing Noriega and replacing him with a more cooperative regime.
The authors particularly discuss the role of media coverage, including the demonization of Noriega and the immediate adoption by the corporate media of the name Operation Just Cause, in legitimating the invasion and transforming it in popular ideology as a law enforcement operation.
Finally, they examine the aftermath of the invasion in the United States--Bush's popularity ratings, the distortion of civilian casualty information, the macho celebration of the war--and in Panama--the destruction of the labor and independence movements, the puppet Endara government, and the increased drug trafficking through Panama.

Unused no flaws but minimal handling. Unopened Unread.

This volume represents some of the most enduring reflections on the Latin American city. All of the essays were written by public officials, journalists, and social commentators, among others, who participated actively in the affairs of the cities they so perceptively describe.
The collection offers critical analyses spanning hundreds of years, beginning with the era of the conquistadores in Tenochtitln and continuing to the deafening bustle of today's urban crowds in Mexico City.
Professors Gilbert Joseph and Mark Szuchman offer translations of classic pieces by writers previously little known to Western audiences: Cobo, Garca, Santos Vilhena, and Leite de Barros.

 9780375421723
 First Edition, First Printing.
 Hardcover in Dust Jacket.
 
The word is paradigmatically ugly, racist and inflammatory.

But is it different when Ice Cube uses it in a song than when, during the O.J. Simpson trial, Mark Fuhrman was accused of saying it? What about when Lenny Bruce uses it to "defang" it by sheer repetition? Or when Mark Twain uses it in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn to make an antiracist statement?

Kennedy, a professor at Harvard Law School and noted legal scholar, has produced an insightful and highly provocative book that raises vital questions about the relationship between language, politics, social norms and how society and culture confront racism.

...<b>The New Industrial Revolution: Consumers, Globalization and the End of Mass Production.</b>, Marsh, Peter

New Haven: Yale University Press, 2012. 0300117779 / 9780300117776 Hardcover in Jacket.
 
No Flaws or Blemishes; Gift Quality.
The rapid emergence of China and India as prime locations for low-cost manufacturing has led some analysts to conclude that manufacturers in the "old economies"-the U.S., U.K., Germany, and Japan-are being edged out of a profitable future.
But if countries that historically have been at the forefront of events in manufacturing can adapt adroitly, opportunities are by no means over, says the author of this timely book.
Peter Marsh explores 250 years in the history of manufacturing, then examines the characteristics of the industrial revolution that is taking place right now.
