Sexual violence and American manhood by T. Walter Herbert ( Book )
5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Taking up topics as diverse as the work of FBI profilers, the pornography debates, feminist analyses of male supremacy as sexual abuse, the ritual meanings of fraternity gang rape, and the interplay of racial and sexual injustice, T. Walter Herbert illuminates the chronic masculine anxieties that seek compensation in fantasies of sexual coercion and in sexual offenses against women. His work offers a clear view of this prevailing convention of insecure and destructive masculinity, which Herbert connects with contemporary analyses of male identity formation, sexuality, and violence and with cultural, political, and ideological developments reaching back to the nation's democratic beginnings. Reading iconic nineteenth-century texts by Whitman, Hawthorne, and Stowe, and pursuing the articulation of their gender logic in Richard Wright's Native Son, Herbert traces a gender ideology of dominance and submission, its persistence in masculine subcultures like the military and big-time football, and its debilitating effects on imaginations and lives in our own day. This book taps into popular culture and high art alike to outline the logic of American manhood's violent streak--and its dire consequences for a culture with truly democratic and egalitarian ambitions
Faith-based war from 9/11 to catastrophic success in Iraq by T. Walter Herbert ( )
9 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Bush administration was prompted to invade Iraq by a religious vision that blinded them to the realities of the struggle against terror, and propelled them into moral and political catastrophe. The propaganda campaign that promoted the war, the choice of a self-defeating Shock and Awe 'invasion, and the expanded torture program bear witness to a faith-based policy that violated democratic ideals and perverted religious truth. The White House embraced a version of Christian nationalism in which the president serves as the agent of God's of wrath to punish evildoers, in keeping with a tradition that descends from the Massachusetts Bay Puritans, who considered themselves a chosen people' occupying a promised land. As native peoples resisted Puritan encroachment at the frontiers of expansion, they were marked as devils incarnate, fit for total destruction. A modern version of this imperialist vision was invoked on 9/11, when the social and political conditions giving rise to the terrorist atrocity were forgotten, and sanctimonious wrath against evildoers ruled the White House response. At the heart of this religious mythology stands the frontier hero, 'who takes action when the not chosen' strike back against the advance guard of the chosen. 'In order to defeat the forces of evil, this cowboy champion of civilization employs savage means: he violates human law in the name of establishing God's law. The Bush administration, acting out this fantasy, claimed the right to engage in illegal surveillance and torture, and invented specious excuses for toppling a government it conceived to be evil'. The classic mythology of the American frontier allowed Christian militarists in the Religious Right of the Republican party to make common cause with broad sectors of the American public. They achieved predominant influence in the Bush White House, and in the future will seek to regain control over U.S. foreign policy. In Bush years, the government of the United States sought to play God, and this perversion of religious truth yielded abhorrent results. "Faith-Based War" discusses the analogy between the U.S. torture program and the Roman practice of crucifixion, to which Jesus fell victim, affirming that sacred authority resides in the targets of religiously-sanctioned violence, not in those who wield it. -- Publisher description
