(P/B) THE TREASON OF THE INTELLECTUALS
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0046

Julien Benda's classic study of 1920s Europe resonates today. The "treason of the intellectuals" is a phrase that evokes much but is inherently ambiguous. The book bearing this title is well known but little understood. This edition is introduced by Roger Kimball. From the time of the pre-Socratics, intellectuals were a breed apart. They were non-materialistic knowledge-seekers who believed in a universal humanism and represented a cornerstone of civilized society. According to Benda, this all began to change in the early twentieth century...

(P/B) FALSE PROPHETS
STUDIES ON AUTHORITARIANISM
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0047

The studies in this volume deal with problems of authoritarianism and anti-Semitism. Lowenthal's book length contribution, "Prophets of Deceit," which begins this collection, is a classic of political psychology. This research study is followed by an essay, "Terror's Atomization of Man." Lowenthal uses this material for a theory of the psychological mechanisms operative under terrorist conditions and their significance for contemporary society. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) MACHIAVELLISM
THE DOCTRINE OF RAISON D'ETAT AND ITS PLACE IN MODERN HISTORY
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0016

Here is a study, by a recognized master in the field of intellectual history, of the challenge put by Machiavelli to the idea that there is a universal moral law governing human behavior. Should the political leader act according to the maxim of "my country right or wrong," or should elites follow the principle of "let justice be done?" Friederich Meinecke, an acknowledged founder of cultural history as a field, follows the discussion of this theme from Machiavelli through such major figures as Richelieu, Frederick the Great, and Hegel, an...

(P/B) DEFYING DYSTOPIA
GOING ON WITH THE HUMAN JOURNEY AFTER TECHNOLOGY FAILS US
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0045

To most, the collapse of modern civilization is the stuff of fiction. Yet, science confirms that misuse of technology and environmental abuse places our world in grave danger of ruin. The World Scientists' Warning to Humanity places our civilization on a collision course. Defying Dystopia analyzes how we have come to this, and what options remain for far-seeing people to take control of their own destiny and survive the future. Ed Ayres, who has worked with some iconic environmental scientists of the past half-century, argues that technolo...

(H/B) THE USE AND ABUSE OF MEMORY
INTERPRETING WORLD WAR II IN CONTEMPORARY EUROPEAN POLITICS
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0044

Decades after the previously unimaginable horrors of the Nazi extermination camps and the dropping of nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, their memories remain part of our lives. In academic and human terms, preserving awareness of this past is an ethical imperative. This volume concerns narratives about - and allusions to - World War II across contemporary Europe, and explains why contemporary Europeans continue to be drawn to it as a template of comparison, interpretation, even prediction. This volume adds a distinctly interdiscipli...

(P/B) THE GULAG SURVIVOR
BEYOND THE SOVIET SYSTEM
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0043

Even before its dissolution in 1991, the Soviet Union was engaged in an ambivalent struggle to come to terms with its violent and repressive history. Following the death of Stalin in 1953, entrenched officials attempted to distance themselves from the late dictator without questioning the underlying legitimacy of the Soviet system. At the same time, Gulag victims initiated questions about the nature, reality, and mentality of the system that remain contentious to this day. "The Gulag Survivor", now available in paperback, is the first book...

(P/B) RELATIONS IN PUBLIC
MICROSTUDIES OF THE PUBLIC ORDER
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0042

Until recently, to be in a "public place" meant to feel safe. That has changed, especially in cities. Urban dwellers sense the need to quickly react to gestural cues from persons in their immediate presence in order to establish their relationship to each other. Through this communication they hope to detect potential danger before it is too late for self-defense or flight. The ability to read accurately the "informing signs" by which strangers indicate their relationship to one another in public or semi-public places without speaking, has...

(P/B) MIRRORS AND MASKS
THE SEARCH FOR IDENTITY
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0036

Mirrors and Masks shows that the fusion of theoretical approaches benefits the analyses of many scholars. Identity as a concept is as elusive as everyone's sense of his own personal identity. Each sees himself mirrored in the judgments of others. The masks he presents to the world are fashioned upon his anticipations of judgments. This book uses the notion of identity to organize materials and thoughts about certain aspects of problems traditionally intriguing to social psychologists. (From the publisher)...

(P/B) THE CONDUCT OF INQUIRY
METHODOLOGY FOR BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCE
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0041

In arguably the finest text ever written in the philosophy of social science, Abraham Kaplan emphasizes what unites the behavioral sciences more than what distinguishes them from one another. Kaplan avoids the bitter disputes among people doing methodology, claiming instead that what is important are those qualities intrinsic to the overall aspirations of the social sciences. He deals with special problems of various disciplines only so far as may be helpful in clarifying the general method of inquiry. The Conduct of Inquiry is a systemati...

(P/B) COMMEMORATING WAR
THE POLITICS OF MEMORY
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0028

War memory and commemoration have had increasingly high profiles in public and academic debates in recent years. This volume examines some of the social changes that have led to this development, among them the passing of the two world wars from survivor into cultural memory. Focusing on the politics of war memory and commemoration, the book illuminates the struggle to install particular memories at the center of a cultural world, and offers an extensive argument about how the politics of commemoration practices should be understood.

(P/B) LAW AND THE MODERN MIND
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0039

Law and the Modern Mind first appeared in 1930 when, in the words of Judge Charles E. Clark, it "fell like a bomb on the legal world." In the generations since, its influence has grown--today it is accepted as a classic of general jurisprudence. The work is a bold and persuasive attack on the delusion that the law is a bastion of predictable and logical action. Jerome Frank's controversial thesis is that the decisions made by judge and jury are determined to an enormous extent by powerful, concealed, and highly idiosyncratic psychological ...

(P/B) AMERICAN LITERATURE
ESSAYS AND OPINIONS
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0040

Cesare Pavese (1908-1950) was the leading Italian scholar of American literature of the generation that came to maturity under Mussolini. He was not only an acute and wide-ranging literary critic, but also a sensitive poet and novelist. In addition, he was a prodigious translator. In collaboration with Elio Vittorini, he translated and brought to the attention of the Italian public the works of many important American writers. American literature helped to give direction to Pavese's creative work and was a resource for his personal literar...

(P/B) THE RECONSTRUCTION OF SPACE AND TIME
MOBILE COMMUNICATION PRACTICES
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0038

One of the most significant and obvious examples of how mobile communication influences our understanding of time and space is how we coordinate with one another. Mobile communication enables us to call specific individuals, not general places. Regardless of location, we are able to make contact with almost anyone, almost anywhere. This advancement has changed, and continues to change, human interaction. Now, instead of agreeing on a particular time well beforehand, we can iteratively work out the most convenient time and place to meet at ...

(P/B) DIMENSIONS OF PERSONALITY
Εκδότης: TRANSACTION PUBLISHERS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 4178-0005

This is the original work on which Hans Eysenck's fifty years of research have been built. It introduced many new ideas about the nature and measurement of personality into the field, related personality to abnormal psychology, and demonstrated the possibility of testing personality theory experimentally. The book is the result of a concentrated and cooperative effort to discover the main dimensions of personality, and to define them operationally, that is, by means of strictly experimental, quantitative procedures. More than three dozen s...
