Historical atlas of the United States : with original maps by Derek Hayes( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using more than five hundred historical maps from collections around the world, this book is the first to tell the story of America's past from a geographical perspective.

Rhapsodies in black : art of the Harlem Renaissance by Rhapsodies in black( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 1,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rhapsodies in Black takes a fresh look at the Harlem Renaissance, contesting narrow interpretations of it as an isolated phenomenon confined to artists of color inhabiting a few square miles of Manhattan and, instead, recognizing it as a historical moment of global significance, with connections to Europe, Africa, the Caribbean, and other parts of the United States, in particular Chicago and the Deep South. Like jazz musicians, the artists of the Harlem Renaissance era traveled and interacted, and their art was cosmopolitan, inspired by European modernism as well as the cultural and artistic groundswell of black America
The Magna Carta manifesto : liberties and commons for all by Peter Linebaugh( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This remarkable book shines a fierce light on the current state of liberty and shows how longstanding restraints against tyranny - and the rights of habeas corpus, trial by jury, and due process of law, and the prohibition of torture - are being abridged. In providing a sweeping history of Magna Carta, the source of these protections since 1215, this powerful book demonstrates how these ancient rights are repeatedly laid aside when the greed of privatization, the lust for power, and the ambition of empire seize a state. Peter Linebaugh draws on primary sources to construct a wholly original history of the Great Charter and its scarcely-known companion, the Charter of the Forest, which was created at the same time to protect the subsistence rights of the poor

Poems for the millennium by Jerome Rothenberg( Book )

10 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first volume offers three "galleries" of individual poets - figures such as Mallarmé, Stein Rilke Tzara, Mayakovsky, Pound, H.D., Vallejo, Artaud, Césaire, and Tsvetaeva - along with a sampling of the most significant pre-World War II movements in poetry and the other arts: Futurism, Expressionism, Dada, Surrealism, "Objectivism", Negritude. In the second volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Pierre Joris have extended the gathering to the present day. In the third volume editors Jerome Rothenberg and Jeffrey C. Robinson bring a radically new interpretation to the poetry of the preceding century, viewing the work of the romantic and postromantic poets as an international, collective, often utopian enterprise that became the foundation of experimental modernism

Science and values : the aims of science and their role in scientific debate by Larry Laudan( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Laudan constructs a fresh approach to a longtime problem for the philosopher of science: how to explain the simultaneous and widespread presence of both agreement and disagreement in science. Laudan critiques the logical empiricists and the post-positivists as he stresses the need for centrality and values and the interdependence of values, methods, and facts as prerequisites to solving the problems of consensus and dissent in science

Weimar on the Pacific : German exile culture in Los Angeles and the crisis of modernism by Ehrhard Bahr( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the 1930s and 40s, Los Angeles became an unlikely cultural sanctuary for a distinguished group of German artists and intellectuals--including Thomas Mann, Theodore W. Adorno, Bertolt Brecht, Fritz Lang, and Arnold Schoenberg--who had fled Nazi Germany. During their years in exile, they would produce a substantial body of major works to address the crisis of modernism that resulted from the rise of National Socialism. Weimar Germany and its culture, with its meld of eighteenth-century German classicism and twentieth-century modernism, served as a touchstone for this group of diverse talents and opinions. This is the first book to examine these artists and intellectuals as a group. Ehrhard Bahr studies selected works of Adorno, Horkheimer, Brecht, Lang, Neutra, Schindler, Döblin, Mann, and Schoenberg, weighing Los Angeles's influence on them and their impact on German modernism. Touching on such examples as film noir and Thomas Mann's Doctor Faustus, Bahr shows how this community of exiles reconstituted modernism in the face of the traumatic political and historical changes they were living through.--From publisher description
