"Describes a twentieth-century transformation in European leftist and Marxist politics.

After liberalism : mass democracy in the managerial state by Paul Gottfried ( Book )
16 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 717 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In this trenchant challenge to social engineering, Paul Gottfried analyzes a patricide: the slaying of nineteenth-century liberalism by the managerial state. Paul Gottfried does more than analyze historical facts, however. He builds on them to show why it matters that the managerial state has replaced traditional liberalism: the new regimes of social engineers, he maintains, are elitists, and their rule is consensual only in the sense that it is unopposed by any widespread organized opposition. How can opponents of administrative elites show the public that those who provide, however ineptly, for their material needs are the enemies of democratic self-rule and of independent decision making in family life? If we do not wake up, Gottfried warns, the political debate may soon be over, despite sporadic and ideologically confused populist rumblings in both Europe and the United States

7 editions published between 1986 and 2010 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Conservatism in America : making sense of the American right by Paul Gottfried ( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 404 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book argues that the American conservative movement, as it now exists, does not have deep roots, It began in the 1950s as the invention of journalists and men of letters reacting to the early Cold War and the attempt to construct a rallying point for like-minded opponents of international Communism. The resulting movement has exaggerated the permanence of its values, while its militant anti-Communism and periodic suppression of dissent have weakened its capacity for internal debate. The movement came to power at least partly by burying an older anti-welfare state Right, one that in fact had enjoyed a social following that was concentrated in small-town America. The newcomers played down the merits of those they had replaced; and in the 1980's the neoconservatives, who took over the postwar conservative movement from an earlier generation, belittled their predecessors in a similar way. Among the movement's major accomplishments has been its ability to recreate its own past. The success of this revised history lies in the fact that even the movement's critics are now inclined to accept it."--BOOK JACKET

The transparent cabal the neoconservative agenda, war in the Middle East, and the national interest of Israel by Stephen J Sniegoski ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Although it is generally understood that American neoconservatives pushed hard for the war in Iraq, this book forcefully argues that the neocons' goal was not the spread of democracy, but the protection of Israel's interests in the Middle East. Showing that the neocon movement has always identified closely with the interests of Israel's Likudnik right wing, the discussion contends that neocon advice on Iraq was the exact opposite of conventional United States foreign policy, which has always sought to maintain stability in the region to promote the flow of oil. Various players in the rush to war are assessed according to their motives, including President Bush, Ariel Sharon, members of the foreign-policy establishment, and the American people, who are seen not as having been dragged into war against their will, but as ready after 9/11 for retaliation
