O...rd Un....ity Pr..s, U.A | 2011-06-01 | ISBN: 0199738955 | 360 pages | PDF | 1,9 MBDoes heaven exist? If so, what is it like? And how does one get in? Throughout history, painters, poets, philosophers, pastors, and many ordinary people have pondered these questions. Perhaps no other topic captures the popular imagination quite like heaven. Gary Scott Smith examines how Americans from the Puritans to the present have imagined heaven. He argues that whether Americans have perceived heaven as reality or fantasy, as Gods home or a human invention, as a source of inspiration and comfort or an opiate that distracts from earthly life, or as a place of worship or a perpetual playground has varied largely according
Aziz Rana, "The Two Faces of American Freedom"
Harvard University Press | 2010-09-15 | ISBN: 0674048970 | 432 pages | PDF | 1,2 MBThe Two Faces of American Freedom boldly reinterprets the American political tradition from the colonial period to modern times, placing issues of race relations, immigration, and presidentialism in the context of shifting notions of empire and citizenship. Today, while the U.S. enjoys tremendous military and economic power, citizens are increasingly insulated from everyday decision-making. This was not always the case. America, Aziz Rana argues, began as a settler society grounded in an ideal of freedom as the exercise of continuous self-rule??�one that joined direct political participation with economic independence. However, this

Benjamin Buley - The New American Way of War: Military Culture and the Political Utility of Force
Published: 2007-12-11 | ISBN: 0415429951 | PDF | 192 pages | 2.04 MB
This book explores the cultural history and future prospects of the so-called ‘new American way of war’. In recent decades, American military culture has become increasingly dominated by a vision of ‘immaculate destruction’, which reached its apogee with the fall of Baghdad in 2003. Operation Iraqi Freedom was hailed as the triumphant validation of this new American way of war. For its most enthusiastic supporters, it also encapsulated a broader political vision. By achieving complete technical mastery of the battlefield, the US would render warfare surgical, humane, and

Nemesis: The Last Days of the American Republic (American Empire Project) By Chalmers Johnson
Publisher: Metro.,.politan Bo..oks 2007 | 368 Pages | ISBN: 0805079114 | DJVU | 4 MBLike ancient Rome, America is saddled with an empire that is fatally undermining its republican government, argues Johnson (The Sorrows of Empire), in this bleak jeremiad. He surveys the trappings of empire: the brutal war of choice in Iraq and other foreign interventions going back decades; the militarization of space; the hundreds of overseas U.S. military bases full of "swaggering soldiers who brawl and sometimes rape." At home, the growth of an "imperial presidency," with the CIA as its "private army," has culminated in the Bush administrations resort to warrantless
