May '68 and its afterlives by Kristin Ross ( )
17 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and held by 1,425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"During May 1968, students and workers in France united in the biggest strike and the largest mass movement in French history. Protesting capitalism, American imperialism, and Gaullism, 9 million people from all walks of life, from shipbuilders to department store clerks, stopped working. The nation was paralyzed - no sector of the workplace was untouched. Yet, just thirty years later, the mainstream image of May '68 in France has become that of a mellow youth revolt, a cultural transformation stripped of its violence and profound sociopolitical implications." "Kristin Ross shows how the current official memory of May '68 came to serve a political agenda antithetical to the movement's aspirations. She examines the roles played by sociologists, repentant ex-student leaders, and the mainstream media in giving what was a political event a predominantly cultural and ethical meaning."--Jacket

In this multidisciplinary collection, seventeen leading thinkers provide substance and depth to the recent outburst of fast talk on the topic of anti-Americanism by analyzing its history and currency in five key global regions: the Middle East, Latin America, Europe, East Asia, and the United States.

Servants in the house of the nation: Fictions of truth in twentieth century Egyptian literature by Waiel Abdelwahed ( )
2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation examines the emergence, development, and internal crises of the regime of literary representation that emerged in Egypt at the turn of the twentieth century. It traces the trajectory of this symbolic system through exploring the shifts in the representation of domestic servants as well as the analogous shifts in the national imaginary. In a wider sense, the dissertation is also a study of a certain kind of servitude that marks the relationship and the mutual captivity that ties writers in this tradition to the abstract concept of al-sha'b, the people. It details how, within the institution of Egyptian literature and the symbolic system it gave rise to, both the writer and his/her objects of writing desires are constituted and maintained. It is there, the dissertation argues, that the figure of the writer is produced, endowed with desires, with an idea of how a writer should be like, what set of beliefs and values he/she should believe in, which causes he/she should identify with (and if necessary risk his/her personal safety and freedom for,) and what the proper materials for writing are. In sum, the dissertation examines the space in which the very idea of a "writer" is constituted while taking into consideration the irreducible complexity of the deep entanglements that tie the writer in this tradition with his/her objects of writing desires
