James P. Cannon and the origins of the American revolutionary left, 1890-1928 by Bryan D Palmer( )

18 editions published between 1900 and 2010 in English and held by 1,604 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bryan D. Palmer's study of James P. Cannon (1890-1974) concentrates on the emergence of the American revolutionary left in the 1910-28 years. The book explores how a labor militant was made in the small-town, working-class milieu of Rosedale, Kansas. It then chronicles the rise of that radical in the ranks of United States revolutionaries, charting Cannon's movement from Kansas to centers of left-wing agitation, such as Chicago and New York." "Palmer's account of Cannon's central place in American communism in the 1920s details the accomplishments of this period that were achieved in the face of state-orchestrated Red Scares, as well as Stalinism's repudiation of the original program and politics of revolutionary communism. Factionalism came to stalemate the renamed Workers (Communist) Party by the mid-to-late 1920s; revolutionary aspiration too often succumbed to promotions of personal authority; communist policy oscillated wildly."--BOOK JACKET
Canada's 1960s : the ironies of identity in a rebellious era by Bryan D Palmer( )

10 editions published between 2009 and 2018 in English and held by 1,368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rebellious youth, the Cold War, New Left radicalism, Pierre Trudeau, Red Power, Quebec's call for Revolution, Marshall McLuhan: these are just some of the major forces and figures that come to mind at the slightest mention of the 1960s in Canada. Focusing on the major movements and personalities of the time, as well as the lasting influence of the period, Canada's 1960s examines the legacy of this rebellious decade's impact on contemporary notions of Canadian identity. Bryan D. Palmer demonstrates how after massive postwar immigration, new political movements, and at times violent protest, Canada could no longer be viewed in the old ways. National identity, long rooted in notions of Canada as a white settler Dominion of the North, marked profoundly by its origins as part of the British Empire, had become unsettled. Concerned with how Canadians entered the Sixties relatively secure in their national identities, Palmer explores the forces that contributed to the post-1970 uncertainty about what it is to be Canadian. Tracing the significance of dissent and upheaval among youth, trade unionists, university students, Native peoples, and Quebecois, Palmer shows how the Sixties ended the entrenched, nineteenth-century notions of Canada. The irony of this rebellious era, however, was that while it promised so much in the way of change, it failed to provide a new understanding of Canadian national identity. A compelling and highly accessible work of interpretive history, Canada's 1960s is the book of the decade about an era many regard as the most turbulent and significant since the years of the Great Depression and World War II."--Publisher's website

Descent into discourse : the reification of language and the writing of social history by Bryan D Palmer( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in English and held by 809 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A spirited and telling critique of the fashionable tendency to substitute language for history [and] ... a promising discussion of the nature and flexibility of historical materialism ... [A] feisty and provocative book."--Elizabeth Fox-Genovese"Critical theory is no substitute for historical materialism; language is not life." With this statement, Bryan Palmer enters the debate that is now transforming and disrupting a number of academic disciplines, including political science, women's studies, and history. Focusing on the ways in which literary or critical theory is being promoted wi

Cultures of darkness : night travels in the histories of transgression by Bryan D Palmer( Book )

8 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 586 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Constructing a rich tapestry of example and experience spanning eight centuries, Palmer's fascinating account details lives of exclusion and challenge, as the "night travels" of the transgressors clash repeatedly with the powerful conventions of their times. Nights of liberation and exhilarating desire are at the heart of this study but so, too, are the dangers cloaked in darkness. Palmer reveals those hidden spaces where darkness concealed acts of brutalizing terror or alternately provided refuge, solace, or freedom. Using the night as metaphor and unifying theme Palmer takes an unflinching look at those dissident or oppositional cultures and movements and shows how they were fueled and shaped by the rise and transformation of capitalism. --Publisher

E.P. Thompson : objections and oppositions by Bryan D Palmer( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El libro de Bryan D. Palmer sobre la vida y la obra de Edward Thompson, uno de los historiadores más importantes del siglo XX de habla inglesa, es un homenaje personal e incisivo al autor de la apasionada biografía sobre William Morris. Palmer evalúa el papel de los antecedentes familiares de Thompson en la India, su juventud en el Partido Comunista, la ruptura decisiva con el estalinismo, y su posterior trabajo en las campañas por las causas de la nueva izquierda y el desarme nuclear. Thompson nunca estuvo cómodo con su condición académica institucional y eventualmente dejó la enseñanza en 1970 para dedicar su tiempo a investigar y escribir. Su pluma estuvo siempre preparada para rebelarse contra los poderes del estado, y contra una izquierda que, a su entender, a menudo parecía haber abandonado la causa de la transformación social
