Harvard University Press 227643 USA 1993 0674802977 / 9780674802971 Softcover Very Good Condition Duncan Kennedy argues that an American radicalism is both possible and desirable. One base for radical politics is the big institutional workplace; another is popular culture--whence his emphasis on phenomena like sexy dressing. Kennedy's aim is to wed the rebelliousness, irony, and irrationalism of cultural modernism and postmodernism to the earnestness of political correctness. 258 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985, Germaine Greer
13 Germaine Greer The Madwoman's Underclothes - Essays & Occassional Writings 1968-1985
Picador 226788 Great Britain 1986 0330301497 / 9780330301497 Softcover Good Condition Always strong and fearless, Germaine Greer strikes right at the heart of the matter-be it John F. Kennedy and vaginal deodorants, rape and artificial insemination, cosmetic surgery, the death of Jimi Hendrix, or the famine in Ethiopia. This collection represents a mosaic of essays, long and short, some of which are appearing for the first time in print and all of which chafe the conventional and are bristling with argument. From the youthful liveliness of her sixties pieces, which "got up everybody's nose," to the depth and complexity of her later work, The Madwoman's Underclothes is a reflection both of an era and of the changing ideas and styles of Germaine Greer: "The essays on Brazil, Cuba, and Ethiopia represent my coming of age. Something like a coherent system of values is beginning to emerge after my years of wandering, although I have certainly not arrived at a set of articles of faith, and never will, I hope." Greer's opinions on social, political, and sexual trends and mores are tendered in her unique fashion-outspoken, with rapier wit and no tolerance for narrow-mindedness. But as explosive, angry, and often funny as these essays are, they also reveal tenderness and sadness and that emotion that underlies all of Greer's work-passionate commitment. 305 pages. Tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Essays; Essays & Literary Criticism; ISBN: 0330301497. ISBN/EAN: 9780330301497. Inventory No: 226788. Paperback

The Moronic Inferno and Other Visits to America, Martin Amis
18 Martin Amis The Moronic Inferno and Other Visits to America
Vintage 231415 Great Britain 2006 0099461862 / 9780099461869 Softcover Good Condition No Dust Jacket A collection of essays on America by the author of London Fields, Money and Yellow Dog. At the age of ten, when Martin Amis spent a year in Princeton, New Jersey, he was excited and frightened by America. As an adult he has approached that confusing country from many arresting angles, and interviewed its literati, filmmakers, thinkers, opinion makers, leaders and crackpots with characteristic discernment and wit. Included in a gallery of Great American Novelists are Norman Mailer, Gore Vidal, Truman Capote, Joseph Heller, William Burroughs, Kurt Vonnegut, John Updike, Paul Theroux, Philip Roth and Saul Bellow. Amis also takes us to Dallas, where presidential candidate Ronald Reagan is attempting to liaise with born-again Christians. We glimpse thebeau mondeof Palm Beach, where each couple tries to out-Gatsby the other, and examine the case of Claus von Bulow. Steven Spielberg gets a visit, as does Brian de Palma, whom Amis asks why his films make no sense, and Hugh Hefner's sybaritic fortress and sanitised image are penetrated. There can be little that escapes the eye of Martin Amis when his curiosity leads him to a subject, and America has found in him a superlative chronicler." 505 pages. Quantity Available: 1.
