Blood in the sand imperial fantasies, right-wing ambitions, and the erosion of American democracy by Stephen Eric Bronner ( )
6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 1,455 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Blood in the Sand is Stephen Eric Bronner's powerful critique of the current state of American foreign and domestic policy, ranging from the government's initial response to 9/11 and the assault on Afghanistan through the Iraqi War and the ramifications of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Bronner, who just months before the war began spent time in Iraq as part of a peace delegation, examines the state of twenty-first century America, a nation in which security against future terrorist attacks has become an obsession, "moral values" have turned into a slogan, and belief in the right to engage
Reclaiming the enlightenment toward a politics of radical engagement by Stephen Eric Bronner ( )
15 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,434 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book tackles an obvious yet profound problem of modern political life: the disorientation of intellectuals and activists on the left. As the study of political history and theory has been usurped by cultural criticism, a confusion over the origins and objectives of progressive politics has been the result. Specifically, it has become fashionable for intellectuals to attack the Enlightenment for its imperialism, eurocentrism, and scientism, and for the sexism and racism of some of its major representatives. Although the fact that individual thinkers harbored such prejudices is irrefutable, Stephen Bronner argues that reducing the Enlightenment ethos to these beliefs is wholly unsustainable. With its championing of democracy, equality, cosmopolitanism, and reason -- and its vociferous attacks on popular prejudice, religious superstition, and arbitrary abuses of power -- the Enlightenment was once hailed as the foundation of all modern, progressive politics. But in 1947, this perspective was dramatically undermined when Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno published their classic work, Dialectic of Enlightenment , which claims that the Enlightenment was the source of totalitarianism and the worst excesses of modernity. Reclaiming the Enlightenment from purely philosophical and cultural interpretations, Bronner shows that its notion of political engagement keeps democracy fresh and alive by providing a practical foundation for fostering institutional accountability, opposing infringements on individual rights, instilling an enduring commitment to social reform, and building a cosmopolitan sensibility. This forceful and timely reinterpretation of the Enlightenment and its powerful influence on contemporary political life is a resounding wake-up call to critics on both the left and the right
Peace out of reach Middle Eastern travels and the search for reconciliation by Stephen Eric Bronner ( )
8 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Turmoil in the Middle East has escalated to unprecedented levels in the twenty-first century. Opposing cultural, religious, and political forces have resumed old conflicts and spawned new ones, fighting with words and images as well as bombs and bullets. The path toward peace and reconciliation seems further away and less clear than ever. Stephen Eric Bronner's Peace Out of Reach is both a deeply personal account and a careful analysis of the crises currently threatening the cradle of civilization. Bronner's insights into Middle Eastern tensions are significantly enhanced by his extensive tra
The logos reader rational radicalism and the future of politics ( )

Ideas in action political tradition in the twentieth century by Stephen Eric Bronner ( )
6 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Contemporary political theory has become alienated from politics. It often neither discusses concrete political events nor touches the world of political action. Stephen Eric Bronner wants to change that, and Ideas in Action takes a bold step in that direction. With elegance and power, Bronner surveys 20th century political traditions. In the process, he places theories and thinkers in their social, historical, and political contexts. His sweeping presentation is organized into four imaginatively articulated phases that signal the direction of political thinking in the twentieth century. Offer
A rumor about the Jews : reflections on antisemitism and the Protocols of the learned elders of Zion by Stephen Eric Bronner ( Book )
10 editions published between 2000 and 2006 in English and held by 755 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is among the most infamous documents of antisemitism. A forgery created in Russia by the czarist secret police and quickly translated into a host of languages, it portrayed Judaism as a worldwide conspiracy dedicated to the destruction of Christian civilization. The appearance of the Protocols sparked a number of bloody pogroms and helped shape the thinking of right-wing movements worldwide, from Hitler's Nazis to contemporary antisemitic groups in Russia, the Middle East, and the United States. A work of intellectual history, A Rumor about the Jews expresses the connection between antisemitism and the overarching political assault upon the enlightenment legacy and provides a new and penetrating understanding of an insidious ideology and its broader implications."--Jacket

Critical theory : a very short introduction by Stephen Eric Bronner ( Book )
18 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Critical Theory emerged in the 1920s from the work of the Frankfurt School, the circle of German-Jewish academics who sought to diagnose-and, if at all possible, cure-the ills of society, particularly fascism and capitalism. In this book, Stephen Eric Bronner provides sketches of leading representatives of the critical tradition (such as George Lukacs and Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin, Herbert Marcuse and Jurgen Habermas) as well as many of its seminal texts and empirical investigations. This Very Short Introduction sheds light on the cluster of concepts and themes that set critical theory apart from its more traditional philosophical competitors. Bronner explains and discusses concepts such as method and agency, alienation and reification, the culture industry and repressive tolerance, non-identity and utopia. He argues for the introduction of new categories and perspectives for illuminating the obstacles to progressive change and focusing upon hidden transformative possibilities. Only a critique of critical theory can render it salient for a new age. That is precisely what this very short introduction provides
