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

24 editions published between 1987 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,544 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 12, 1962, sixty young student activists drafted a manifesto for their generation - The Port Huron Statement - that ignited a decade of dissent. Democracy Is in the Streets is the definitive history of the major people and ideas that shaped the New Left in America during that turbulent decade. Because the 1960s generation is now moving into positions of power in politics, education, the media, and business, their early history is crucial to our understanding. James Miller, in his new Preface, puts the 1960s and them into a context for our time, claiming that something of value did happen: "Most of the large questions raised by that moment of chaotic openness - political questions about the limits of freedom, and cultural questions, too, about the authority of the past and the anarchy of the new - are with us still."
The passion of Michel Foucault by Jim Miller( Book )

59 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 1,379 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

May 1968. It recounts Foucault's debates with Jean-Paul Sartre and Jacques Derrida, and his encounters with Noam Chomsky and Jurgen Habermas. And in revelations as fascinating as they may be shocking to some readers, The Passion of Michel Foucault provides the first detailed account of Foucault's lifelong obsession with death, suicide, drugs, and sadomasochistic eroticism - even under the mounting threat of AIDS in the 1980s. With the subtlety and sure grasp of history
Examined lives : from Socrates to Nietzsche by Jim Miller( Book )

10 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 1,176 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

The cry of jazz by Sun Ra( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 175 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[This] ... semi-documentary film was completed in 1958 in Chicago ... Long before the concept of Black Culture existed, THE CRY OF JAZZ argued that Black American life shared a structural identity with jazz. It is one of the earliest documentary films made by Black Americans ... [The film] is structured in seven parts. Parts 1, 3, 5 and 7 consist of dramatic scenes in which the significance of jazz and Black American life is discussed by an interracial cast. Sandwiched between these discussions are parts 2, 4 and 6, in which the structure, history, and future of jazz and Black American life are presented in documentary form, along with a jazz soundtrack. Most of the music is composed and performed by the late jazz great Sun Ra and his Arkestra. The music is vintage Sun Ra from his '50s Chicago years."--Www.edblandmusic.com/TheCryofJazz.htm

7 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Confirming the continuing need for philosophy today, this book explores the most urgent questions about what it means to live a good life
