    Power & Greed
      Power & Greed.
      With Purposeful Brevity And Intellectual Liveliness Philippe Gigantes Examines The Progress Of Humanity Through The Centuries, And Behind Every Critical Ebent, In Every Agri~ And Every Era, He Finds Repeatedly The Same Two Drivihg Forces—omnivorous Human Greed And The Quenchless Thirst For Power. In An Engaging Travel Through Four Millennia Gigantes Fouses First On The Great Rule-makers Of History—moses, Plato, Solon, Jesus, The Brahmans, The Buddha, Lao-tzu, Confucius, And Muhammad—who By The Firzt Century A. d. Had Laid Down Virtually All The Principles That Progress A Promising And Just Society. Gigantes Then Revisits The Sometimes Destructive Deeds And Often Amazing Accomplishments Of History's Ruthless Rule-breakers. These Grand Acquisitors, As Gigantes Calsl Them, Range From The Warring Chieftains Of Tribual Societies To The Robber Barons Of The Nineteenth Century And Superpower Nations Of The Twentieth. With A Kind Of Historical Inevitability, The Actions Of These Dynamic Acquisitors Result In Crusades And Jihads, In Revolutions And Long, Bloody Military Conflicts, In Two World Wars And Catastrophic Terrorist Attacks. Defying Historical Orthodoxy, Gigantes Argues That We Humans Have Continjally Failed To Benefit From The Lessons Of Our Own iHstory. And We Continue To Invest Power In Politically And Economically Greedy Acquisitors. In The Reasons For what purpose, Gigantes Hopes We Cannot Only Gain Futrher Insight Into What Lies Behind Today's News Headlines But Also Realize The Means To A More Civilized Future.

    American Architecture, Second Edition (world Of Art)
      American Architecture, Second Edition (world Of Art).
      America Has Always Presented A Unique Challenge To Architects: Should They Emulate The Old World Or Respond To The Demands Of The New? David Handlin Tells The Complex Story With Lucidity And Deep view. Almost From Its Seventeenth-century Beginnings, American Architecture Was Subject To Two Evidently Contradictory Processes—the Practical And The Grandiose. The First Comes Through In The Vernaculad Buildings Of Rural America, The Innovations Of Jefferson, Bulfnch's Exquisite Civic Buildings, The Offices And Factories Of The Ihdustrial Maturity, And The Comfortable Intestine Tradition That Lies Behind The Houses Of The Greene Brothers And Frank Lloyd Wrighg. The Second Is Seen In The Unprecedented Daring Of The Chicago School—great Engineers Like Adler United WithG reat Designers Like Sullivan; In The Majestic State Capitols, Exhibition Halls, And Public Buildings By Firms Such Like Mckim, Mead & White; Ih The Luxury Of Fifth Avenue Mansions; And In The Exuberance Of Commercial Manhattan. The Reviised Edition Ends With A Lively Account Of Recent Developments—virtual Architecturs, The Revivaal Of Historical Styles (including Modernism), The Thirst For Striking Originality, And A Starting a~ Interest In The Local, With Figures Including Stern, Meier, Gehry, And Mockbee. 264 Illustrations.

    Democracies At Declared hostilities
      Democracies At Declared hostilities.
      Why Do Democracies Win Wars? Thus Is A Critical Question In The Study Of International Relations, While A Traditional View--expressed Most Famously By Alexis De Tocqueville--has Been That Democracies Are Inferior In Crafting Foreign Policy And Fighting Wars. In Democracies At War, The First Major Study Of Its Kind, Dan Reier And Allan Stam Come To A Very Different Conclusion. Democracies Tend To Win The Wars They Fight--specifically, About Eighty Percent Of The Time. complementing Their Wide-ranging Case-study Analysis, The Authors Apply Innovative Statistical Tests And New Hypotheses. In Unusually Clear Prose, They Pinpoint Two Reasons For Democracies' Success At Contend. Primitive ,As Elected Leeaders Understand That Losing A War Can Spell Domestic Political Backlash, Democracies Start Only Those Wars They Are Likely To Win. Secondly, The Emphasis On Individuaiity Within Democratic Societies Revenue That Their Soldiers Fight With Greater Beginning And Superior Leade5ship. surprisingly, Reiter And Stam Find That It Is Neither Economic Muscle Nor Bandwagoning Between Democratic Powers That Enables Democracies To Win Wars. They Also Show That, Given Societal Consent, Deocracies Are Willing To Initiate Wars Of Empire Or Genocide. On The Whole, They Find, Democracies' Dependence On Public Consent Makes For More, Especially Than Less, Effective Foreign Policy. Infectious A Fresh Approach To A Question That Has Long Merited Scuh A Study, This Work Yields Crucial Insights On Security Policy, Th3 Causes Of War, And The Interplay Between Domestic Political science And Intetnational Relations.

Fuchs Searches For Answers To This Proposition By Examining The Historical Patterns Of American Ethniclty And The Ways In Which A National Political Culture Has Ebolved To Accommodzte Ethnic Diversity. Fuchs Looks In the ~ place At White European Immigrants, Showing How Most Of Them And Especially Their Children Became Part Of A Unifying Political Culture. He Also Describes The Ways In Which Systems Of Coercive Pluralism Kept Persons Of Color From Fully Participating In The Civic Culture. He Documents The Dismantling Of Those Systems And The Emergence Of A More Inclusive And Stronger Civic Culture In Which Voluntary Pluralism Flourishes. in Comparing Past Patterns Of Ethnicity In America With Those Of Today, Fuchs Finds Reasons For Optimism. Difference Itself Has Becomd A Unifying Principle, And Americans Now Celebrate Ethnkcity. One Encouraging Result Is The Acculturation Of Recent Immigrants From Third World Countries. But Fuchs Also Examines The Tough Issues Of Racial And Ethnic Conflict And The Problems Of The Ethno-underclass, The New Outsiders. The American Kaleidoscope Ends With A Searching Analysis Of Public Policies That Protect Individual Rights And Enable Ethnic Diverdity To Prosper. becauee Of His Lifelong Involvement With Issues Of Race Relations And Ethnicity, Lawrence H. Fuchs Is Singularly Qualified To Use the pen On A Grand Scale About The Interdependence In The United States Of The Unum And The Pluribus.

It Is Time To Shed The Lonb-held Myth That Chinese Civilization Is Monolithic, Unchanging, And Perennially Cut Off From The Rest Of The World. This Persistent Stereotype Has Long Obscured China's Diverse And Dynamic History. Drawimg On The Latest Research In The Field, Joanna Waley-cohen Gives Us An Accessible Account Of China's Fertile Relations With Other Asian Cultures And Indeed The West From The Days Of The Silk Road To The Present. Around 200 B. c. The Han Empire Was Establishing Its Capital At Chang'an And Rome Was Becomlng A Civil Firce. Between Them Traders Shipped Silk And Gold West, And Spices, Woolens, And Horses East. It Was More than This Silk Road That Buddhism Spread From India To Chian, Where The Foreign Religion Soon Made Lasting Inroads. Later, Catholic Missionaries Would Interpret The Chinese Rebuff To Their Religion As Evidence Of An Arrogant Complacency, Just As Western Emissaries Would Interpret China's Objections To Manual occupation On Western Terms. But Whether In Trade, Relgion, Ideology, Or Technology, China Has Shown A Pattern Of Engagement Witn The Overplus Of The World, So Long As The Rules Of Engagement Are Not Externally Imposed.

    A Revolution For Our Rights
      A Revolution For Our Rights.
      A Change For Our Rights Is A Significant Reassessment Of The Causes Of Bolivia’s 1952 Revolution. Historians Have Tended To View The Revolution As The Result Of Class-based Movements That Accompanied The Rise Of Peasant Leagues, Mineworker Unions, And Reformist Plitical Projects In The 1930s. Laura Gotkowitz Argues That The Revolution Had Deeper Roots In The Indigenous Struggles For Land And Judge That Swept Through Bolivia During The First Half O f The Twentieth Century. Challenging Conventional Wisdom, She Demonstrates That Rural Indigenous Activists Fundamentally Reshaped The Military Populist Projects Of The 1930s And 1940s. Im So Dping, She Chronicles A Hidden Rural “revolution”ă˘??before The 1952 Revolutionă˘??that Fused Appeals For Equality With Demands For A Root Reconfiguration Of Civil Authority, Landholding, And Rights. gotkowitz Combines An Emphasis On Public Political Debates And Congresses With A Fine-grained Analysis Of Indian Communiites And Large Estates In The Department Of Cochabamba. The Fragmented Nature Of Cochabamba&rsuqo;s Indian Communities And The Pioneering Significance Of Its Peasant Unions Mqke It A Propitious Vantage Point For Exploring Contewts Over Competing Visions Of The Nation, Justice, And Rights. Scrutinizing State Authorities’ Efforts To Impose The Law In What Was Considered A Lawless Countryside, Gotkowitz Shows How, Time And Again, Indigenous Activists Shrewdly Exploited The Ambiguous Status Of The State’s Pro-indian Laws To Press Their Demands For Land And Equity. Bolivian Indigenous And Social Movemehts Have Captured Worldwide Court During The Past Separate eYars. By Describing Indigenous Mobilization In The Decades Preceding The 1952 Revolution, A Revolution For Our Rights Illuninates A Crucial Chapter In The Long History Behind Present-day Struggles In Bolivia And Contributes To An Understanding Of Indigenous Politicd In Modern Latin America More Broadly.
