Anarchism and the crisis of representation : hermeneutics, aesthetics, politics by Jesse S Cohn( Book )

4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 189 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Anarchism and the Crisis of Representation is intended to provide readers of literary criticism, art history, political philosophy, and the social sciences with a fresh perspective from which to revisit dead-end theoretical debates over concepts such as "agency," "essentialism," and "realism"--And, at the same time, to offer a new take on anarchism itself, challenging conventional readings of the tradition. The anarchism that emerges from this reinterpretation is neither a musty rationalism nor a millenarian irrationalism, but a living body of thought that points beyond the sterile antinomies of post-modern and Marxist theory."--Jacket
Underground passages : anarchist resistance culture, 1848-2011 by Jesse Cohn( Book )

9 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What anarchists demanded from art was what they demanded from all aspects of their political lives: that it should, as much as possible, embody the principle in the practice, the end in the means. While prefiguring a post-revolutionary world, anarchists simultaneously created a richly textured "resistance culture" to sustain their ideals and identities amid everyday lives defined by capital and the state, allowing an escape from domination even while enmeshed in it. Underground Passages investigates and interrogates these creations across the history of the movement. Whether discussing famous artists like John Cage or Diane DiPrima or unknown and anonymous anarchist writers, Cohn shows how aesthetic shifts both reflected and influenced and political and economic ones. This is cultural criticism at its best--and most useful.-- Provided by publisher

Transit as transformation : the Euclid Corridor in Cleveland( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Public and private investments catalyzed a striking transformation along Euclid Avenue in Cleveland, generated in part by the construction of a new bus rapid transit (BRT) system known as the Healthline. Euclid Avenue's strategic location stretches from Cleveland's Central Business District (CBD) and continues nine miles past prominent institutions such as Cleveland State Universit (CSU) and the Cleveland Clinic. The HealthLine is a result of a decades-long commitment by city leaders and residents to re-establish Euclid Avenue's historic status as a key transportation and economic development corridor for the entire region."--Background (p.

The Partnership for Sustainable Communities works to coordinate Federal housing, transportation, water, and other infrastructure investments [... and ...] Partnership agencies support sustainable communities by providing technical assistance and capacity-building opprotunities ... Redevelopment in downtown Milwaukee, Wisconsin, highlights how resources from Federal agencies, combined with State and local resources, build on each other to provide broad economic, environmental, and social benefits. ... The city used an EPA grant to clean up downtown Milwaukee's largest industrial brownfield ... These efforts have led to the private sector development of The North End. ...
