Innovative Leaders in International Politics
Innovative Leaders in International Politics (September 1993)
Gabriel Sheffer - Editor

"It's a joy to read and will fascinate any student of political leadership. The book is so well written and substantively so interesting that I think it would appeal to incumbent and aspiring political leaders as well as scholars and students in various disciplines. There are three things I like the most: it focuses on the heart of political leadership studies--the capacity for innovation; it contains informative, well-written (sometimes even ele...(Read More)
 
 
Democracy and Possessive Individualism
Democracy and Possessive Individualism (September 1993)
The Intellectual Legacy of C. B. Macpherson
Joseph H. Carens - Editor

"Macpherson's work continues to animate the literature of contemporary political theory, and his arguments have had a pervasive influence on current conversations. An impressive group of scholars has been brought together to address his work, and they not only illuminate his ideas but, in responding to his claims, offer important claims of their own. These are strong essays in their own right, and a focused discussion of Macpherson is a most worth...(Read More)
 
 
Socratic Rationalism and Political Philosophy
Socratic Rationalism and Political Philosophy (August 1993)
An Interpretation of Plato's Phaedo
Paul Stern - Author

In this new interpretation of Plato's Phaedo, Paul Stern considers the dialogue as an invaluable source for understanding the distinctive character of Socratic rationalism. First, he demonstrates, contrary to the charge of such thinkers as Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Rorty, that Socrates' rationalism does not rest on the dogmatic presumption of the rationality of nature. Second, he shows that the distinctively Socratic mode of philosophizin...(Read More)
 
 
Intellectuals and the Crisis of Modernity
Intellectuals and the Crisis of Modernity (August 1993)
Carl Boggs - Author

This book is a page-turner on a subject that is of the greatest interest to social theorists, historians, and that broad constituency of readers who are concerned with the fate of education, political life, and above all, the intellectual level of our period.

"With a style that is amazingly lucid and inviting, Boggs has provided a basic framework for discussing one of the most disquieting problems of our times: the absorption of what was once...(Read More)
 
 
Changing Patterns of Power
Changing Patterns of Power (July 1993)
Social Regulation and Teacher Education Reform
Thomas S. Popkewitz - Editor

"I believe that the topic is ripe for such a sophisticated social and political analysis. There are other volumes about teacher education internationally, but few come close to providing the insights that can be gleaned from this book."-- Mark Ginsburg, Institute for International Studies in Education, University of Pittsburgh

"Educational reformers exhibit a degree of provincialism in outlook that is astounding. A book that deals with refo...(Read More)
 
 
Critical Theory, Public Policy, and Planning Practice
Critical Theory, Public Policy, and Planning Practice (July 1993)
John Forester - Author

Too often attacked as hopelessly abstract, contemporary critical social theory can help us to understand both public policy and its analysis. In this book, John Forester shows how policy analysis, planning, and public administration are thoroughly political communicative practices that subtly and selectively organize public attention. Drawing from Jurgen Habermas's critical communications theory of society, Forester shows how policy developments a...(Read More)
 
 
Hermeneutics, Citizenship, and the Public Sphere
Hermeneutics, Citizenship, and the Public Sphere (July 1993)
Roberto Alejandro - Author

This book sheds new light on the question of democratic politics by proposing a hermeneutic conception of citizenship and the public sphere. At the same time, it presents a critique of the postmodern arguments advanced by Richard Rorty, Jean-Francois Lyotard, and Jean Baudrillard. Questioning a dominant interpretation that sees Gadamer's hermeneutics as the expression of a conservative project, Alejandro argues that it includes an important el...(Read More)
 
 
Postmodern Politics for a Planet in Crisis
Postmodern Politics for a Planet in Crisis (July 1993)
Policy, Process, and Presidential Vision
David Ray Griffin - Editor
Richard A. Falk - Editor

"There are more ideas per linear inch in this book than in a dozen others. This is a genuinely visionary compilation. The book brings a powerful moral/ecological vision to a subject corrupted by a deepening national cynicism." -- David W. Orr, Director, Environmental Studies Program, Oberlin College

This book argues that the planetary crisis, which has been produced by modernity, demands a postmodern politics, especially in the United State...(Read More)
 
 
Property Rights and the Constitution
Property Rights and the Constitution (July 1993)
Shaping Society Through Land Use Regulation
Dennis J. Coyle - Author

Controversies over public regulation of private land have dominated political agendas in recent years, especially at the local level. Land use and environmental regulation have reached unprecedented levels, and federal and state courts have garnered recent headlines by striking down regulations. Rights and regulations are on a collision course, and how they are reconciled will have a major impact on individuals, governments, and communities in the...(Read More)
 
 
The Constitutional Foundations of World Peace
The Constitutional Foundations of World Peace (July 1993)
Richard A. Falk - Editor
Robert C. Johansen - Editor
Samuel S. Kim - Editor

This book shows how significant a worldwide constitutional framework can be, both analytically and politically, in efforts to achieve a just and lasting peace. The authors are careful to avoid the pitfalls of legalism and moralism that have often afflicted discussion of world governance in the past, and their analyses are rooted directly within contemporary human struggles for peace, justice, prosperity, and environmentally sustainable societies....(Read More)
