Biography -- History -- Political Science -- Economics For over half a century, Canadian-born John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908) has been among the most visible of public intellectuals. His articulate and controversial best-selling books-including "The Affluent Society, " "Economics and the Public Purpose, " and "The New Industrial State"-and his very partisan liberal Democrat political and public service activities secured a place for him among the rich and famous of his time. He worked as an adviser to President John F. Kennedy, served as U.S. ambassador to India (1961-1963), and edited "Fortune" magazine during the mid-1940s. Among American economists of any era, he is rivaled only by Thorstein Veblen for the introduction of phrases that take on a life of their own in the literate idiom. Such Galbraithian phrases as "the conventional wisdom" and the "affluent society" have become familiar even beyond Galbraith's remarkably wide readership. No other economist of the twentieth century, excepting perhaps John Maynard Keynes, can claim so secure a place in the "belles-lettres" of the English-speaking world. This collection of interviews documents the long career of an influential economist and political philosopher who has spent much of his professional life in the public eye. Many of the interviews are occasioned by publication of his books and contain their key themes such as the importance of Keynes, the need to include power in economic thinking, and the neglected priorities of aesthetics, poverty, and the environment in affluent America. The interviews also indicate Galbraith's wide-ranging public service and his frequent hobnobbing with the political and intellectual elite. Through the collection, which spans over four decades, Galbraith's erudition, wit, and impassioned liberalism shine through, making this volume an essential companion to his works. James Ronald Stanfield, a professor of economics at Colorado State University, is the author of "John Kenneth Galbraith, " "The Economic Thought of Karl Polanyi: Lives and Livelihood, " and "Economics, Power, and Culture: Essays in the Development of Radical Institutionalism." Jacqueline Bloom Stanfield, a professor of sociology at the University of Northern Colorado, is the author of "Married with Careers: Coping with Role Strain." Her work has appeared in such periodicals as "Social Science Journal, " "American Journal of Economics and Sociology, " and "Review of Social Economy.".

This reprint collection brings together articles and essays on the Cold War from a wide range of international journals written by scholars of history, political science, international relations, sociology, and cultural studies. It is a useful source for students of contemporary history and society from a number of fields. From the extensive critical literature, the editor has chosen articles that convey the sharpest understanding of the conflict and organised them in a five-volume collection according to major historical issues of the Cold War; its origins, security policies, hot wars, espionage, and its impact on U.S. society. The Cold War collection shows how the conflict defined the political landscape of the second half of the twentieth century, shaping the domestic and foreign policy agendas of nations and leaving no region of the world free from the forty-year conflict waged between the superpowers. But it also makes clear how the Cold War always surpassed political and military decision makers. From the beginning, it influenced culture, sport, art, education, media, and society in intimate ways. Its legacy today is profound and lasting. 1.

  • Epilogue: antifascism in strip mall America.
Although fascism is typically associated with Europe, the threat of fascism in the United States haunted the imaginations of activists, writers, and artists, spurring them to create a rich, elaborate body of cultural and political work. Traversing the Popular Front of the 1930s, the struggle against McCarthyism in the 1950s, the Black Power movement of the 1960s, and the AIDS activism of the 1980s, Haunted by Hitler highlights the value of "antifascist" cultural politics, showing how it helped to frame the national discourse. Christopher Vials examines the ways in which anxieties about fascism in the United States have been expressed in the public sphere, through American television shows, Off-Broadway theater, party newspaper, bestselling works of history, journalism, popular sociology, political theory, and other media. He argues that twentieth-century liberals and leftists were more deeply unsettled by the problem of fascism than those at the center or the right and that they tirelessly and often successfully worked to counter America's fascist equivalents.
