The end of politics : corporate power and the decline of the public sphere by Carl Boggs( Book )

21 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 699 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The End of Politics, Carl Boggs delves beneath the sound bites and news headlines to explore the ongoing process of depoliticization in the United States. This book provides a panoramic view of our political, economic, cultural, and technological scene. Attuned to the many contemporary trends eroding the public sphere, Boggs illuminates the American retreat to an eerily privatized landscape of shopping malls, gated communities, new-aged fads, rural militias, isolated computer terminals, and postmodern intellectual discourse. Drawing lessons from such diverse phenomena as the influence of economic globalization, the spread of civic violence and gun culture, and the end of the cold war, the book traces the social processes that underpin and accelerate the triumph of antipolitics. Readers learn how the effects of free-market idealogy and corporate power have helped to undermine civic obligation, democratic participation, and popular decision making - at a time when mounting social and ecological crisis demand far-reaching and creative political solutions."--Jacket

Analysed in historical context and drawing on a broad mix of theoretical, political, and cultural sources, this title explores the U.S. film industry and its deepening impact on the popular and political culture.

Topics include cinematic representations of terrorism, the return of "good war" motifs, the phenomenon of disguised militarism, the relationship between cinema and technowar, depictions of the Gulf War and the current war in Iraq, and general media spectacles of warfare as well as unique perspectives on films related to World War II, the Cold War, and Vietnam

6 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this hard-hitting critique, Carl Boggs argues that the United States is dominated by a new militarism, one that has become more potent and menacing since 9/11. He explores the origins and development of this new militarism and shows its devastating effects on American society, politics, and foreign policy." "As America expands its influence, Imperial Delusions demonstrates how Americans have become addicted to war - allowing a military culture to control their interactions with each other and the world."--Jacket

Empire versus democracy : the triumph of corporate and military power by Carl Boggs( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 147 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Empire Versus Democracy , Carl Boggs traces the authoritarian trajectory of American politics since World War II, with emphasis on the growing concentration of corporate and military power that has accompanied the United States assumption of leading superpower on the world scene. The rise of the U.S. as unchallenged imperial nation has meant the steady expansion of a permanent war economy and security state that, working in tandem with large business interests, has led to proliferation of American armed-forces bases around the
Ecology and revolution : global crisis and the political challenge by Carl Boggs( Book )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2016 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Ecology and Revolution: Global Crisis and the Political Challenge explores the global crisis in the context of converging economic, political, military, and environmental problems. While analyzing such issues as climate change it goes much further, addressing in depth such concerns as resource depletion, peak oil, population pressures, and general contamination of the planet transcending global warming as such. It shows how the present system of political economy in the United States is designed to produce impasse rather than genuine alternatives to corporate-state-military business as usual. It explores a range of solutions proferred by liberals, environmental reformists, anarchists, and classical marxists, among others, and shows how they are inadequate to the major political challenge of the current epoch. A distinctly radical alternative is urgently needed, as time is running short - an alternative that merges the best of the green political tradition, marxist socialism, and the force of popular movements -something akin to what the European Greens represented a few decades ago but which ran aground on the process of deradicalization. This book sets out to provide a comprehensive ecological analysis of the modern crisis within its broader economic, political, and global context"--
The crimes of empire : rogue superpower and world domination by Carl Boggs( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 123 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Imperial nations advance their own interests by exploiting other societies. To those on the receiving end this is obvious, while inside the empire, a powerful ideological system of justification tends to hide all but the worst excess. Carl Boggs argues that that the USA began life two centuries ago as a nascent colonialist regime plundering and conquering the Native Tribes. The Indian wars were followed by perpetual militarism and warfare fuelled by a deep sense of national exceptionalism. The Crimes Of Empire examines several trends in this process, and illustrates the new depths plumbed since 9/11. Violation of international agreements, treaties and laws and the use of prohibited weapons, support for death squads and torture are just some of the practices that Boggs highlights as he shows how technical superiority and media control prolong the American nightmare
Origins of the Warfare State : World War II and the Transformation of American Politics by Carl Boggs( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The post-World War II emergence of a full-blown state of perpetual war is arguably the most important feature of contemporary American politics. This book examines the 'warfare state' in terms of a broad ensemble of structures, policies, and ideologies: permanent war economy, national security-state, global expansion of military bases, merger of state, corporate, and military power, an imperial presidency, the nuclear establishment, and superpower ambitions. Carl Boggs makes the argument that the 'Good War' led to an authoritarian system that has expanded throughout the post-war decades, undermining liberal-democratic institutions and values in the process. He goes on to suggest that current American electoral politics show no sign of rolling back the warfare state and, in fact, may push it to a new threshold bordering on American fascism"--Publisher description
Drugs, power, and politics : narco wars, big pharma, and the subversion of democracy by Carl Boggs( Book )

8 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

His book explores the increasingly broad terrain of drugs in American society with an emphasis on politics. It begins with the War on Drugs initiated by President Richard Nixon in the early 1970s and extends to the current day with the vast power of the pharmaceutical industry (Big Pharma), expansion of global criminal syndicates, militarization of the drug war, and struggles between states and federal government over the legalization of marijuana. From the beginning, the drug war produced increasing authoritarian tendencies in American politics, visible not only in swollen national bureaucracies and burgeoning police functions, but in the rise of the largest prison-industrial complex in the world, a surveillance state, and the weakening of personal privacy and freedoms. At the same time, the legal drug system with some of the most profitable business operations anywhere has expanded to create a huge medical edifice, affecting the delivery of health care, development of modern psychology, evolution of the treatment industry, and many other areas of contemporary life, including the world of sports and recreation. Although prohibitionism remains very much alive, targeting a wide range of illicit drugs, today it is the hundreds of widely-marketed chemical substances sold by Big Pharma that result in some of the most serious health problems affecting society. This book explores the long historical trajectory of both the War on Drugs and the growth of Big Pharma, focusing on social outcomes and political consequences in the US and beyond
