The 1913 International Exhibition of Modern Art (better known as the Armory Show) marked a turning point in the history of American art and culture. Organised by a small group of American artists and presented in the huge space of the 69th Regiment Armory in New York City, this ambitious exhibition of 1,400 works is remembered as the moment when the American public was introduced to European avant-garde art. This interdisciplinary volume includes 31 contributions by eminent scholars, re-examining the 1913 exhibition in its historical and cultural context.

Growing up absurd; problems of youth in the organized system by Paul Goodman ( Book )
2 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Paul Goodman's Growing Up Absurd was a runaway best seller when it was first published in 1960, and it became one of the defining texts of the New Left. Goodman was a writer and thinker who broke every mold and did it brilliantly'he was a novelist, poet, and a social theorist, among a host of other things'and the book's surprise success established him as one of America's most unusual and trenchant critics, combining vast learning, an astute mind, utopian sympathies, and a wonderfully hands-on way with words. For Goodman, the unhappiness of young people was a concentrated form of the unhappiness of American society as a whole, run by corporations that provide employment (if and when they do) but not the kind of meaningful work that engages body and soul. Goodman saw the young as the first casualties of a humanly repressive social and economic system and, as such, the front line of potential resistance. Noam Chomsky has said, "Paul Goodman's impact is all about us," and certainly it can be felt in the powerful localism of today's renascent left. A classic of anarchist thought, Growing Up Absurd not only offers a penetrating indictment of the human costs of corporate capitalism but points the way forward. It is a tale of yesterday's youth that speaks directly to our common future
