The cultural contradictions of capitalism by Daniel Bell( Book )

84 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in 7 languages and held by 2,797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Since its original publication in 1976, The Cultural Contradictions of Capitalism has been hailed as an intellectual tour de force that redefines how we think about the relationship among econmomics, culture, and social change. Daniel Bell, the author of such other modern classics as The End of Ideology and The Coming of Post-Industrial Society, argues that the unbounded drive of modern capitalism undermines the moral foundations of the original Protestant ethic that ushered in capitalism itself. In a major new afterword, Bell offers a bracing perspective on contemporary Western society, from the end of the Cold War to the rise and fall of postmodernism, revealing the crucial cultural fault lines we face as the twenty-first century approaches."--Jacket
The coming of post-industrial society; a venture in social forecasting by Daniel Bell( Book )

81 editions published between 1973 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 2,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bell's prophetic 1976 forecast of the Information Age and how it would radically alter the social structure. With a new introduction by Bell. In 1976, when Daniel Bell first published The Coming of Post-Industrial Society, he predicted a vastly different world-one that would rely upon an economics of information, as opposed to the economics of goods that had existed up to then. Bell argued that the new society would not displace the old one but rather overlay it in profound ways, much as industrialization continues to coexist with the agrarian sectors of our society. In Bell's prescient vision, the post-industrial society would include the birth and growth of a knowledge class, a change from goods to services, and changes in the role of women. All of these would be based upon an increasing dependence on science as a means of innovation; as a means of technical and social change. The Coming of Post-Industrial Society remains an important book for a whole new generation of politicians, economists, intellectuals, and students. --Publisher

"Wenn aber (meine) Ideen richtig sind \IIare es, \II ie ich voraussage, ein Fehler, zu bestreiten, dal3 sie im Verlauf einer ge\llissen Zeit Macht ge\llinnen \IIerden (Die) Gedanken der Oko nomen und Staatsphilosophen, sO\llohl \IIenn sie im Recht, als \IIenn sie im Unrecht sind, (sind) einflul3reicher, als gemeinhin ange nommen \IIird. Die Welt \IIird in der Tat durch nicht viel anderes beherrscht. Praktiker, die sich ganz frei von intellektuellen EinflUssen glauben, sind ge\llohnlich die Sklaven irgendeines ver blichenen Okonomen. Wahnsinnige in hoher Stellung, die Stimmen in der Luft horen, zapfen ihren \IIilden Irrsinn aus dem, \lias irgendein akademischer Schreiber ein paar Jahre vorher verfal3te. Ich bin Uberzeugt, dal3 die Macht er\llorbener Rechte im Vergleich zum allmahlichen Durchdringen von Ideen stark Ubertrieben \IIird. Diese \IIirken z\llar nicht immer sofort, sondern nach einem ge\llis sen Zeitraum; denn im Bereich der Wirtschaftslehre und der Staatsphilosophie gibt es nicht viele, die nach ihrem fUnfund z\llanzigsten oder dreil3igsten Jahr durch neue Theorien beeinflul3t \IIerden, so dal3 Ideen, die Staatsbeamte und Politiker und selbst Agitatoren auf die laufenden Ereignisse an\llenden, \IIahrscheinlich nicht die neuesten sind. Aber frUher oder spater sind es Ideen, und nicht er\llorbene Rechte, von denen die Gefahr kommt, sei es zum Guten oder zum Bosen."

China's new Confucianism : politics and everyday life in a changing society by Daniel Bell( Book )

16 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What is it like to be a Westerner teaching political philosophy in an officially Marxist state? Why do Chinese sex workers sing karaoke with their customers? And why do some Communist Party cadres get promoted if they care for their elderly parents? In this entertaining and illuminating book, one of the few Westerners to teach at a Chinese university draws on his personal experiences to paint an unexpected portrait of a society undergoing faster and more sweeping changes than anywhere else on earth. With a storyteller's eye for detail, Daniel Bell observes the rituals, routines, and tensions of daily life in China. China's New Confucianism makes the case that as the nation retreats from communism, it is embracing a new Confucianism that offers a compelling alternative to Western liberalism." "Bell provides an insider's account of Chinese culture and, along the way, debunks a variety of stereotypes. He presents the startling argument that Confucian social hierarchy can actually contribute to economic equality in China. He covers such diverse social topics as sex, sports, and the treatment of domestic workers. He considers the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, wondering whether Chinese competitiveness might be tempered by Confucian civility. And he looks at education in China, showing the ways Confucianism impacts his role as a political theorist and teacher." "By examining the challenges that arise as China adapts ancient values to contemporary society, China's New Confucianism enriches the dialogue of possibilities available to this rapidly evolving nation."--Jacket
Communitarianism and its critics by Daniel Bell( Book )

32 editions published between 1991 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 681 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Many have criticized liberalism for being too individualist, but few have offered an alternative that goes beyond a vague affirmation of the need for community. In this entertaining book, written in dialogue form, Daniel Bell fills this gap, presenting and defending a distinctively communitarian theory against the objections of a liberal critic." "In a Paris cafe Anne, a strong supporter of communitarian ideals, and Philip, her querulous critic, debate the issues. Drawing on the works of such thinkers as Charles Taylor, Michael Sandel, and Alasdair MacIntyre, Anne attacks liberalism's individualistic view of the person by pointing to our social embeddedness. She then develops Michael Walzer's idea that political thinking involves the interpretation of shared meanings emerging from the political life of a community, and rebuts Philip's criticism that this approach damages her case by being conservative and relativistic. She goes on to develop a justification of communal life and to answer the criticism that communitarians lack an alternative moral and political vision. The book ends with two later discussions, by Will Kymlicka and Daniel Bell, in which Anne and another friend, Louise, argue about the merits of the book's earlier debate and put it in perspective." "Daniel Bell's book is a provocative defence of a distinctively communitarian theory which will stimulate interest and debate among both students of political theory and those approaching the subject for the first time."--Jacket

The end of ideology : on the exhaustion of political ideas in the fifties : with a new afterword by Daniel Bell( Book )

20 editions published between 1988 and 2001 in English and held by 523 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The End of Ideology has been a landmark in American social thought, regarded even as a classic since its first publication in 1960. Daniel Bell postulated that the older humanistic ideologies derived from the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries were exhausted, and that new parochial ideologies would arise. In an essay new to the 2000 edition, he argues that with the end of communism, we are seeing a resumption of history, a lifting of the heavy ideological blanket and the return of traditional ethnic and religious conflicts in the many regions of the former socialist states and elsewhere. Indeed, he argues that as the world undergoes greater economic integration, it is also experiencing great political fragmentation, as people retreat to more primordial units for the purposes of self-identity."--Jacket
