Conventional wisdom holds that John F. Kennedy was the first celebrity president, in no small part because of his innate television savvy. But as Kathryn Brownell shows, Kennedy capitalized on a tradition and style rooted in California politics and the Hollywood studio system. Since the 1920s, politicians and professional showmen have developed relationships and built organizations institutionalizing Hollywood styles, structures, and personalities in the American political process. Brownell explores how similarities developed between operating a studio, planning a successful electoral campaign, and ultimately running an administration. Using their business and public relations know-how, figures such as Louis B. Mayer, Bette Davis, Jack Warner, Harry Belafonte, Ronald Reagan, and members of the Rat Pack made Hollywood connections an asset in apolitical world being quickly transformed by the media. Brownell takes listeners behind the camera to explore the negotiations and relationships that developed between key Hollywood insiders and presidential candidates from Dwight Eisenhower to Bill Clinton, analyzing how entertainment replaced party spectacle as a strategy to raise money, win votes, and secure success for all those involved. She demonstrates how Hollywood contributed to the rise of mass-mediated politics, making the twentieth century not just the age of the political consultant but also the age of showbiz politics. 1.

Stilwell and Mountbatten in Burma: Allies at Wa...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Stilwell and Mountbatten in Burma explores the relationship between American General Joseph “Vinegar Joe” Stilwell and British Admiral Lord Louis Mountbatten in the China-Burma-India Theater (CBI) and the South East Asia Command (SEAC) between October 1943 and October 1944, within the wider context of Anglo-American relations during World War II. Jonathan Templin Ritter discusses the military, political, and diplomatic aspects of Anglo-American cooperation, the personalities involved, and where British and American policies both converged and diverged over Southeast Asia.Although much has been written about CBI, Stilwell and China, and Mountbatten, no published comparison study has focused on the relationship between the two men during the 12-month period in which their careers overlapped. This book bridges the gap in the literature between Mountbatten’s earlier naval career and his later role as the last Viceroy of British India. It also presents original archival material that explains why Stilwell was so anti-British. Finally, it presents other original archival material that refutes previous books that have accused Stilwell of needlessly sacrificing the lives of his men during the 1944 North Burma Campaign, merely out of hatred for the British.The book is published by University of North Texas Press. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks."A transfixing, informative, and highly recommended contribution to public and college library world history collections." (Midwest Book Review)"A revealing analysis of two major wartime personalities, where much was not always what it seemed to be on the surface." (Journal of America's Military Past)"An important book for those studying the Burma campaign, this will also prove useful reading for anyone interested in the dynamics of command." (New York Military Affairs Symposium Review) 1. Language: English. Narrator: William Dupuy. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/132287/bk_acx0_132287_sample.mp3.

Edward Bernays

Edward Louis Bernays (November 22, 1891 March 9, 1995) was an American pioneer in the field of public relations along with Ivy Lee, referred to in his obituary as "the father of public relations". Combining the ideas of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter on crowd psychology with the psychoanalytical ideas of his uncle, Dr. Sigmund Freud, Bernays was one of the first to attempt to manipulate public opinion using the subconscious. He felt this manipulation was necessary in society, which he regarded as irrational and dangerous as a result of the 'herd instinct' that Trotter had described. Adam Curtis's award-winning 2002 documentary for the BBC, The Century of the Self, pinpoints Bernays as the originator of modern public relations, and Bernays was named one of the 100 most influential Americans of the 20th century by Life magazine.

Cosmoipolitan Justice
91,98 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book assesses the rapid transformation of the political agency of religious groups within transnational civil society under the conditions of globalization that have weakened the sovereign nation-state. It offers a comprehensive synthesis of the parallel resurgences of Jasper's axial thesis from the distinct lines of research initiated by Eisenstadt, Habermas, Taylor, Bellah, and others. It explores the concept of cosmoipolitanism from the combined perspectives of sociology of religion, critical theory, secularization theory, and evolutionary cultural anthropology. At the theoretical level, cosmoipolitanism prescribes how local, national, transnational, global, and virtual spaces ought publically to engage in transcivilizational discourse without presuming secular assumptions tied to cosmopolitanism. As a transnational extension of the moral-ethical universality of the great Axial Age traditions, cosmoipolitanism provides an ideal description of empirical data. Employing the insights of critical theory, this book offers a micro-level analysis of the pragmatics of discourse of each of the major axial traditions producing a genealogy in iterated stages of the dialectics of secularization as a multi-faceted narrative of the role of religion in alternative modernities. While circumscribing the particular historical limits of each tradition, the book extends their internal claims to species universality in light of the potential for boundless communication Jaspers saw as initiated with the Axial Age.In Jon Bowman's novel and important work, he rethinks the challenges of global justice. Bowman is not just concerned with global justice in the modern world, but with a genealogy that begins with a better understanding of the Axial age, one that is also the unique signature of cosmoi-political institutions. Arguing with depth and precision, Bowman challenges Kantian and Rawlsian universalism. His argument provides a new interpretation of cosmopolitan justice as he explores the deeper roots of cosmopolitan justice.James BohmanSaint Louis UniversityJon Bowman's Cosmoipolitan Justice is an important, innovative and timely work. Construing globality in terms of pervasive conditions of worldwide interdependence, Bowman advances a decidedly pluralistic account of cosmopolitanism, one uniquely shaped by recent theories of multiple modernities. His analysis is sustained by a highly informed appropriation of such diverse thinkers as Theodor Adorno, Abudullah An-Naim, Talad Asad, Schmuel Eisenstadt, Jürgen Habermas, Karl Jaspers, John Rawls, Amartya Sen, and Charles Taylor. One special feature is the book's synthesis of research on global governance with that on post-secularity and the place of religion in the public sphere. On this basis Bowman presents a distinctive account of the world's axial religions, one underwriting a multi-polar, intercultural global public realm able to address social, political, and economic issues confronting the global community today. This book should be of great interest to students and scholars in philosophy, political theory, international relations, sociology, and religious studies.Professor Andrew BuchwalterDepartment of PhilosophyUniversity of North Florida

“In Gender, Race, and Nationalism, Nikol G. Alexander-Floyd makes a timely and necessary contribution to the study of Black politics by highlighting the ways in which our efforts to combat racial inequality are simultaneously supporting conservative White nationalist notions of Black pathology vis a vis our gender relations.” (Kiana Cox, National Political Science Review, Vol. 17 (1), November, 2015) 'Gender, Race, and Nationalism in Contemporary Black Politics is a welcome addition to a growing body of scholarship by a cohort of second generation Black feminist political scientists...Alexander-Floyd reveals not only the significance of the cultural dimensions of politics, but also how conventional social science paradigms often obscure rather than clarify. In addition to an interdisciplinary mix of feminist analysis, cultural studies, and policy analysis, her work offers an excellent illustration of how to examine the imbrications of race, gender, and class.' - American Politics'The book makes major contributions to both the field of gender and politics and also to the Black politics field. In comparison to recent scholarship...this book offers a different perspective by focusing on issues of policy formation and the politics of policy-making. In her exploration of how the functioning of policy is framed, Alexander-Floyd offers us a useful analysis of policy change and continuity.' - Julia S. Jordan-Zachery, Providence College'Nikol Alexander-Floyd s book deftly and importantly links discussions taking place in the Ivory Tower with the real world concerns of the Black political sphere. In a work of daring and with great insight, she weaves a narrative about gender within and through the history of Black America and offers us a lens to understand the past and the future possibilities of citizenship, democracy, and equality with just a bit more clarity. Gender, Race, and Nationalism in Contemporary Black Politics is a book that is well worth reading.' - Noliwe M. Rooks, Center for African American Studies, Princeton University 'In this impressively original and profoundly iconoclastic book, Alexander-Floyd demonstrates that Black nationalisms share the same theoretical ground as the racist discourses they ostensibly oppose. Tracing the devastating effects of these mistaken assumptions on public policies, popular culture, and visions of community, she provides a powerful argument for new approaches to social justice in mainstream and minority politics.' - Mary Hawkesworth, Editor, Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society 'In Gender, Race, and Nationalism in Contemporary Black Politics, Nikol Alexander-Floyd makes a significant contribution toward broadening and deepening our understanding of the ways that both the study and practice of Black American politics is shaped by gendered ideologies. Among the book s signal accomplishments is its examination of the hegemonic status of the trope of Black cultural pathology, which, as Alexander-Floyd shows, has been a fundamental ideological rationale for such seemingly disparate phenomena as Louis Farrakhan s Million Man March, Reagan/Clinton/Bush social policy, and liberal poverty research. Students, scholars, and citizens will benefit substantially from engaging with this book s interpretations and arguments.' - Adolph Reed Jr., Professor of Political Science, University of Pennsylvania 'Alexander-Floyd s Gender, Race, and Nationalism in Contemporary Politics is a provocative, thoroughly researched feminist critique of Black nationalism in the U.S. She makes a compelling case in this pioneering approach to the study of Black politics for the connections between White nationalism and Black nationalism, especially with respect to their conservative gender ideologies and masculinist rhetoric. Alexander-Floyd s interdisciplinary study is a major contribution to the scholarship on the gender politics of the most influential movement in contemporary Black America.' - Beverly Guy-Sheftall, co-author of Cole of Gender Talk and Director of Women s Research & Resource Center at Spelman College

William Clark
54,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

For three decades following the expedition with Meriwether Lewis for which he is best known, William Clark forged a meritorious public career that contributed even more to the opening of the West: from 1807 to 1838 he served as the U.S. government's most important representative to western Indians. This biography focuses on Clark's tenure as Indian agent, territorial governor, and Superintendent of Indian Affairs at St. Louis. Jay H. Buckley shows that Clark had immense influence on Indian-white relations in the trans-Mississippi region specifically and on federal Indian policy generally. As an agent of American expansion, Clark actively promoted the government factory system and the St. Louis fur trade and favored trade and friendship over military conflict. Clark was responsible for one-tenth of all Indian treaties ratified by the U.S. Senate. His first treaty in 1808 began Indian removal from what became Missouri Territory. His last treaty in 1836 completed the process, divesting Indians of the northwestern corner of Missouri. Although he sympathized with the Indians' fate and felt compassion for Native peoples, Clark was ultimately responsible for dispossessing more Indians than perhaps any other American. Drawing on treaty documents and Clark's voluminous papers, Buckley analyzes apparent contradictions in Clark's relationship with Indians, fellow bureaucrats, and frontier entrepreneurs. He examines the choices Clark and his contemporaries made in formulating and implementing Indian policies and explores how Clark's paternalism as a slaveholder influenced his approach to dealing with Indians. Buckley also reveals the ambiguities and cross-purposes of Clark's policy making and his responses to such hostilities as the Black Hawk War. William Clark: Indian Diplomat is the complex story of a sometimes sentimental, yet always pragmatic, imperialist. Buckley gives us a flawed but human hero who, in the realm of Indian affairs, had few equals among American diplomats. Jay H. Buckley is Associate Professor of History at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah.
