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

18 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 696 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

The Hollywood war machine : U.S. militarism and popular culture by Carl Boggs( Book )

12 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 394 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The newly expanded and revised edition of The Hollywood War Machine includes wide-ranging exploration of numerous popular military-themed films that have appeared in the close to a decade since the first edition was published. Within the Hollywood movie community, there has not been even the slightest decline in well-financed pictures focusing on warfare and closely-related motifs. The second edition includes a new chapter on recent popular films and another that analyzes the relationship between these movies and the bourgeoning gun culture in the United States, marked in recent years by a dramatic increase in episodes of mass killings. -- Publisher website

"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."

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

9 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 142 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
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 117 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

Ecology and revolution : global crisis and the political challenge by Carl Boggs( Book )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 3 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"--
