Description : “[Niebuhr] is one of my favorite philosophers. I take away [from his works] the compelling idea that there’s serious evil in the world, and hardship and pain. And we should be humble and modest in our belief we can eliminate those things. But we shouldn’t use that as an excuse for cynicism and inaction. I take away . . . the sense we have to make these efforts knowing they are hard.”—President Barack Obama Forged during the tumultuous but triumphant postwar years when America came of age as a world power, The Irony of American History is more relevant now than ever before. Cited by politicians as diverse as Hillary Clinton and John McCain, Niebuhr’s masterpiece on the incongruity between personal ideals and political reality is both an indictment of American moral complacency and a warning against the arrogance of virtue. Impassioned, eloquent, and deeply perceptive, Niebuhr’s wisdom will cause readers to rethink their assumptions about right and wrong, war and peace. “The supreme American theologian of the twentieth century.”—Arthur Schlesinger Jr., New York Times “Niebuhr is important for the left today precisely because he warned about America’s tendency—including the left’s tendency—to do bad things in the name of idealism. His thought offers a much better understanding of where the Bush administration went wrong in Iraq.”—Kevin Mattson, The Good Society “Irony provides the master key to understanding the myths and delusions that underpin American statecraft. . . . The most important book ever written on US foreign policy.”—Andrew J. Bacevich, from the Introduction

Description : NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “A startling vision of what the cycles of history predict for the future.”—USA Weekend William Strauss and Neil Howe will change the way you see the world—and your place in it. With blazing originality, The Fourth Turning illuminates the past, explains the present, and reimagines the future. Most remarkably, it offers an utterly persuasive prophecy about how America’s past will predict its future. Strauss and Howe base this vision on a provocative theory of American history. The authors look back five hundred years and uncover a distinct pattern: Modern history moves in cycles, each one lasting about the length of a long human life, each composed of four eras—or "turnings"—that last about twenty years and that always arrive in the same order. In The Fourth Turning, the authors illustrate these cycles using a brilliant analysis of the post-World War II period. First comes a High, a period of confident expansion as a new order takes root after the old has been swept away. Next comes an Awakening, a time of spiritual exploration and rebellion against the now-established order. Then comes an Unraveling, an increasingly troubled era in which individualism triumphs over crumbling institutions. Last comes a Crisis—the Fourth Turning—when society passes through a great and perilous gate in history. Together, the four turnings comprise history's seasonal rhythm of growth, maturation, entropy, and rebirth. The Fourth Turning offers bold predictions about how all of us can prepare, individually and collectively, for America’s next rendezvous with destiny.

Description : This book looks at America's place in history. It displays the realistic idealism evident in American presidents, and apparent throughout American foreign policy and all of its changes. This book also explores the particular cyclical trends which have influenced policymakers and prepared America for its developing world position. The author looks at the faith of American leaders and how the expressions of their faith relate to the challenges of events of the time, and the cycle of America's mood and priorities. Klingberg stresses the importance of the stability of American idealism during the peaks and plateaus of influence in America. Focus is on the forming years of America as an independent nation (1776-1824), on Lincoln and Wilson, the time period after World War II, and in the declining stages of the Cold War. Contents: Introduction: American Traits, Beliefs, and Cycles; The Colonial Outlook: Providence and Moral Law (1587-1776); The Revolutionary Period: Independence and a Democratic Republic (1776-1824); Rounding Out the Nation: Liberty, Land and Spirit, 1824-1871; America's Rise as an Industrial World Power: The Enlightenment (1871-1918); World Crisis for Freedom: Revolution and Realism (1918/19 - 1966/67); Conclusion: America's Record and Outlook; Bibliography; Index.

Description : The Rhythms of American Politics is the first book to systematically explore the relationships between long macroeconomic movements in the United States and the cyclical nature of American politics. The book begins with an overview of the cycles of history, along with an examination of the rhythms of American politics. It then moves into technological change and the effects it has on the actions of the political and electoral populations. The authors also explore the common devisiveness in the long-wave trough and progressivism in the upswing of the economy. Finally, they depict the overall synthesized actions of the macroeconomy and political activity, and conclude with an assessment of the past in an effort to discover details of the future rhythms of the economy related to politics.

Description : As a writer of sophisticated historical fiction, satirical fantasies and incisive essays on the political and cultural condition of America, Gore Vidal's reputation is well-established. This study explores Gore Vidal's use of classical scepticism in his historical novels and in his politics. While a great deal has been written about Vidal, there has not yet been published a serious analysis of his philosophical approach to the reading and interpretation of history, and how this in turn informs the writing of his historical fiction. What this study offers is a full understanding of how Vidal's sceptical and dissenting views reflect the mind of a politically committed and serious thinker, and, in turn, how these views directly inform the creation of a body of writing that is as intellectually challenging as it is engagingly varied in form and character.

Description : The Nature of Humanity and the State of America offers a new and single unified theory of the nature of humanity that provides a general understanding and description of social life, the social world, and the state of America. The author presents an extensive and comprehensive explanation of the whole spectrum of social life, its identification, and the description of the major universal laws or principles that govern and operate in the social world. He identifies the key principles for influencing the well-being and destiny of individuals, societies, and humanity. In addition, he provides a more precise description of the state of American society, and offers an initial plan of action for restoring the well-being of America, and other errant societies. This book goes further than any other to identify the cultural crisis in America, and to understand and explain the causes of this crisis, as well as suggesting solutions for ending the crisis and with it the decline of America.
