Taking it big : C. Wright Mills and the making of political intellectuals by Stanley Aronowitz( )

9 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and held by 1,295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charles Wright Mills (1916-1962) was a pathbreaking intellectual who transformed the independent American left in the 1940s and 1950s. Often challenging the established ideologies and approaches of fellow leftist thinkers, Mills was central to creating and developing the idea of the "public intellectual" in postwar America and laid the political foundations for the rise of the New Left in the 1960s. Written by Stanley Aronowitz, a leading sociologist and critic of American culture and history, "Taking it Big" reconstructs the making of this icon and the new dimension of American politics
The jobless future : sci-tech and the dogma of work by Stanley Aronowitz( Book )

24 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Jobless Future challenges beliefs in the utopian promise of a knowledge-based, high-technology economy. Reviewing a vast body of encouraging literature about the postindustrial age, Aronowitz and DiFazio conclude that neither theory, history, nor contemporary evidence warrants optimism about a technological economic order. Instead, they demonstrate the shift toward a massive displacement of employees at all levels and a large-scale degradation of the labor force. As they clearly chart a major change in the nature, scope, and amount of paid work, the authors suggest that notions of justice and the good life based on full employment must change radically as well. They close by proposing alternatives to our dying job culture that might help us sustain ourselves and our well-being in a science- and technology-based economic future. One alternative discussed is reducing the workday to fewer hours without reducing pay
How class works : power and social movement by Stanley Aronowitz( Book )

15 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Offering a revision of conventional wisdom, Stanley Aronowitz demonstrates that class remains a potent force in the United States. Aronowitz shows that class need not be understood simply in terms of socioeconomic stratification, but rather as the power of social groups to make a difference. He explains that social groups from different economic and political positions become ruling classes when they make demands that change the course of history. For instance, labour movements, environmental activists and feminists have engaged in class struggles as their demands for power reconfigured the social order. The emerging global justice movements - comprised of activists from heterogeneous social and political backgrounds - also show potential for class formation

From the ashes of the old : American labor and America's future by Stanley Aronowitz( Book )

17 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and German and held by 819 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corporate downsizing, technological change, mergers, and acquisitions have cut the workforce by half in some industries; in others, the best-paid employees have lost their jobs and have been replaced by part-time, temporary workers who often lack benefits. Meanwhile, government protections are slowly fading from the lives of ordinary Americans as health benefits, pensions, and safety and health standards deteriorate. Stanley Aronowitz, a teacher, writer, and former trade union organizer, examines the decline of the labor movement in the past twenty-five years and its recent reemergence as a major force in the country's economic and political life. Republicans suddenly find themselves under attack from a forgotten foe. Democrats are shocked to see this ghost walking about, compelling the party to fight for a minimum-wage law it had practically abandoned. The labor movement, once given up for dead, is now the engine of economic democracy and progressive politics. But to succeed, Aronowitz argues, labor must return to the social-movement unionism of Eugene Debs and Walter Reuther. Such an energetic new movement is the key to America's future

The knowledge factory : dismantling the corporate university and creating true higher learning by Stanley Aronowitz( Book )

15 editions published between 2000 and 2005 in English and held by 725 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans can't get a good education for love or money. So argues Stanley Aronowitz in this look at the structure and curriculum of higher education. Universities have made bottom-line management, fund-raising, and private partnerships with corporations priorities over their obligations to educate students. And as Aronowitz clearly shows, when universities do get around to the task of teaching, they approach students as customers who need credentials."--Jacket

The politics of identity : class, culture, social movements by Stanley Aronowitz( Book )

15 editions published between 1991 and 2014 in English and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Politics of Identity, Stanley Aronowitz offers provocative analysis of the complex interactions of class, politics, and culture. Beginning with the premise that culture is constitutive of class identities, he demonstrates that while feminist analyses of both racial and gay movements have discussed these components of culture, class contributions to cultural identity have yet to be fully examined. In these essays, he uses class as a category for cultural analysis, ranging over issues of ethnicity, race and gender, portrayals of class and culture
