All that is solid melts into air : the experience of modernity by Marshall Berman ( Book )
61 editions published between 1980 and 2010 in English and held by 1,631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"All That Is Solid Melts into Air is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest books on modernity. A kaleidoscopic journey into the experience of modernization, it captures the dizzying social changes that swept up and transformed the lives of millions of people. Berman delves into the aesthetic and intellectual controversies of art, literature, and architecture: from the writing of Goethe, Marx and Dostoevsky to the Paris of Baudelaire and Haussmann, the Petersburg of the Tsarist builders and Pushkin, and the New York of devastated wastelands and creative artists."--P. [4] of cover
The politics of authenticity; radical individualism and the emergence of modern society by Marshall Berman ( Book )
25 editions published between 1970 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 864 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In this acclaimed exploration of the search for 'authentic' individual identity, Marshall Berman explores the historical experiences and needs out of which this new radicalism arose. Focussing on eighteenth-century Paris, a time and place in which a distinctively modern form of society was just coming into its own, Berman shows how the ideal of authenticity--of a self that could organize the individual's energy and direct it toward his own happiness--articulated eighteenth-century man's deepest responses to this brave new world, and his most ardent hope for a new life in it. Exploring in particular the ideas of Montesquieu and Rousseau, Berman shows how the ideal of authenticity was radically opposed to the bourgeois, capitalistic idea of 'self-interest'"- Besedilo z zavihka
On the town : one hundred years of spectacle in Times Square by Marshall Berman ( Book )
10 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Conversely, we see how Times Square's distinctive aura finds its source in a stunningly diverse list of performers, writers, and impresarios, including Theodore Dreiser, Florenz Ziegfeld, Ethel Merman, Al Jolson, Bob Dylan, and Bruce Springsteen. Berman also celebrates the unsung heroes of Times Square - the artists, engineers, and hucksters behind the Square's landmark signs that, throughout the decades, re-created raging waterfalls, blew smoke rings, bathed onlookers in the Square's eerily welcoming light, and projected the image of what Americans want to be against a surface of who we really are."--BOOK JACKET
Adventures in Marxism by Marshall Berman ( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"At the heart of Berman's commitment to Marxism is an understanding that, if the philosophy is to enjoy a continuing relevance in the coming century, it will have to move beyond its current casting as a critical tool or an occasional literary pleasure. The emancipatory potential of Marxism, its capacity to configure a world beyond the daily grind of selling one's labor to stay alive, needs to be renewed."--BOOK JACKET. "In these chapters are discussions of work on Marx and Marxism by Georg Lukacs, Walter Benjamin, Meyer Schapiro, Edmund Wilson, Jerrold Siegel, James Billington, Irving Howe and Isaac Babel, commentary on writers such as Perry Anderson and Studs Terkel, and an appreciation of the inestimable contributions of Frederick Engels and Marx himself. All are brought together in a single embrace by Berman's spirited appreciation of Marxism as expressive, playful, sometimes even a little vulgar, but always an adventure."--Jacket

Todo lo sólido se desvanece en el aire : la experiencia de la modernidad by Marshall Berman ( Book )
26 editions published between 1982 and 2013 in Spanish and French and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
El texto intenta examinar algunas dimensiones del significado, explorar y trazar el mapa de las aventuras y los horrores, de las ambigüedades y las ironías de la vida moderna. El libro avanza y desarrolla a través de una seire de lecturas de textos (el fausto, el manifiesto comunista, las memorias de subsuelo y otros); aunque también trata de leer el entorno social y espacial, pequeñas ciudades, las grandes obres de construcción, embalses y centrales eléctricas, el Palacio de Cristal de Joseph Paxton, los bulevares parisinos de Haussmann, las perspectivas de Petersburgo, las autopistas de Robert Moses que atraviesan New York y por último, de lecturas de las vidas de personas reales y de ficción, desde los tiempos de Goethe, pasando por los Marx y Budelaire, hasta llegar a los nuestros.
