"Democracy is in the streets" : from Port Huron to the siege of Chicago by Jim Miller( Book )

23 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 12, 1962, sixty young activists met in Port Huron, Michigan, to draft a manifesto for their generation. The document they produced, The Port Huron Statement, helped spark a dramatic rebirth of the left in America--and ignited a decade of dissent. In this book, James Miller vividly re-creates the turbulent history of the people and ideas that shaped the New Left, and America, during the 1960s. Focusing on politics and philosophy as well as personalities, Miller chronicles the careers of both the most publicized radical leaders and the less well known theorists and activists of the decade: C. Wright Mills, the sociologist who became the prophet of the powerless to a generation of students; Al Haber, the reluctant visionary who became the first president of Students for a Democratic Society; Richard Flacks, the intellectual who combined theory and practice in a new strategy for the American left; Sharon Jeffrey, who walked her first picket line at the age of five and whose dreams of community organizing took her from the campus to the inner city; Paul Booth, the precocious organizer of the first march on Washington to protest the Vietnam War; and Tom Hayden, the charismatic anti-leader whose personal odyssey--from voter registration in the segregated South to the riots in the Newark ghetto, from his trip to North Vietnam to his conspiracy trial after the siege of the 1968 Chicago convention--mirrored the convulsions of the 1960s.--From book jacket
The passion of Michel Foucault by Jim Miller( Book )

58 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shortly before his death in 1984, Michel Foucault defended his career as one of the most controversial thinkers of our time. "The philosophical life," he declared, "is the animality of being human, renewed as a challenge, practiced as an exercise - and thrown in the face of others as a scandal." Now, for the first time, here is a book that explores the true challenge - and "scandal"--Of Foucault's life and work. Based on extensive new research and a bold
Examined lives : from Socrates to Nietzsche by Jim Miller( Book )

11 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We all want to know how to live. But before the good life was reduced to ten easy steps or a prescription from the doctor, it was the philosophers who offered arresting answers to the most fundamental questions about who we are and what makes for a life worth living. Here, James Miller returns to this vibrant tradition with short, lively biographies of twelve famous philosophers. With a flair for paradox and rich anecdote, this is a book that confirms the continuing relevance of philosophy today--and explores the most urgent questions about what it means to live a good life.--From publisher description
Flowers in the dustbin : the rise of rock and roll, 1947-1977 by Jim Miller( Book )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Where did rock and roll come from? And what has it come to? These are the sorts of questions that cultural historian and veteran music journalist Jim Miller raises in his challenging new book about the rise -- and arrested development -- of rock and roll. Concentrating on the music in its early, formative decades, he explores how rock and roll was transformed from a joyous and sometimes earthy dance music in the 1940s into an abrasive, often angry art music by the end of the 1970s. Along the way, he celebrates a culture of youthful exuberance -- and critically analyzes how it was organized into a billion-dollar global industry
