The trouble with normal : sex, politics, and the ethics of queer life by Michael Warner( Book )

26 editions published between 1999 and 2003 in English and held by 872 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Is gay marriage good for gays? Are queer people better off when they see themselves as "normal" Americans? What is lost when gays go mainstream? What, after all, is The Trouble With Normal? Here, Michael Warner, argues that gay marriage and other moves toward normalcy are bad not just for gays but for everyone. In place of the sexual status quo, Warner offers a vision of true sexual autonomy that will forever change the way we think about sex, shame, and identity."--Jacket
The letters of the Republic : publication and the public sphere in eighteenth-century America by Michael Warner( Book )

17 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: The subject of Michael Warner's book is the rise of a nation. America, he shows, became a nation by developing a new kind of reading public, where one becomes a citizen by taking ones place as writer or reader. At heart, the United States is a republic of letters, and its birth can be dated from changes in the culture of printing in the early eighteenth century. The new and widespread use of print media transformed the relations between people and power in a way that set in motion the republican structure of government we have inherited

Publics and counterpublics by Michael Warner( Book )

27 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and Spanish and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"By combining historical analysis, theoretical reflection, and extended case studies, Publics and Counterpublics shows how the idea of a public works as a formal device in modern culture and traces its implications for contemporary life. Michael Warner offers a revisionist account at the junction of two intellectual traditions with which he has been associated: public-sphere theory and queer theory. To public-sphere theory, this book brings a new emphasis on cultural forms, and a new focus on the dynamics of counterpublics. To queer theory, it brings a new way of seeing how queer culture (among other examples) is shaped by the counter-public environment"--Jacket
Varieties of secularism in a secular age by Michael Warner( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and French and held by 478 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'What does it mean to say that we live in a secular age?' This apparently simple question opens into the massive, provocative, and complex A Secular Age, where Charles Taylor positions secularism as a defining feature of the modern world, not the mere absence of religion, and casts light on the experience of transcendence that scientistic explanations of the world tend to neglect. In Varieties of Secularism in a Secular Age, a prominent and varied group of scholars chart the conversations in which A Secular Age intervenes and address wider questions of secularism and secularity. The distinguished contributors include Robert Bellah, José Casanova, Nilüfer Göle, William E. Connolly, Wendy Brown, Simon During, Colin Jager, Jon Butler, Jonathan Sheehan, Akeel Bilgrami, John Milbank, and Saba Mahmood."--Jacket
The English literatures of America, 1500-1800 by Myra Jehlen( Book )

13 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The English Literatures of America redefines colonial American literatures, sweeping from Newfoundland and Nova Scotia to the West Indies and Guiana. The book begins with the first colonization of the Americas and stretches beyond the Revolution to the early national period. Many texts are collected here for the first time; others are recognized masterpieces of the canon--both British and American--that can now be read in their Atlantic context. By emphasizing the culture of empire and by representing a transatlantic dialogue, The English Literatures of America allow

Complex problems, negotiated solutions : tools to reduce conflict in community development by Michael Warner( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Central intelligence : origin and evolution( Book )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In May 2001, President George W. Bush directed that the Director of Central Intelligence commission the first in-depth study of the nation's Intelligence Community in three decades. The panels appointed by DCI George Tenet will soon provide him, and the President, with their findings about the shape of the changing international order and the ability of the Intelligence Community to respond to the national security challenges and opportunities of the 21st Century. After the panels present their findings, the Central Intelligence Agency's Center for the Study of Intelligence, in conjunction with the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University, intends to sponsor a conference to examine the transition required of the Intelligence Community. Panelists and attendees will strive to gain a clearer idea of what in our new era constitutes "intelligence" to policymakers, diplomats, commanders, and law enforcement officials. Conferees will also examine the ways in which the components of the Intelligence Community have adapted since the Cold War and the areas where change is still needed. What is the future of "central" intelligence? The creators of the CIA in Congress and the White House believed that the reforms accomplished by the National Security Act of 1947 would minimize problems that had lulled the nation's vigilance before Pearl Harbor. The centralization implied in the Truman administration's directives and the National Security Act never fully occurred, however, mainly because of the limits on DCI powers codified in that very Act. As the Cold War recedes into the past and a new world order emerges, it is important to understand why intelligence was centralized in the form it was, and to explore differing views about its future. The assault on New York's World Trade Center towers and the Pentagon in Washington bring this question into very sharp focus

3 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What do gay men want? : an essay on sex, risk, and subjectivity by David M Halperin( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in French and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Recent efforts to analyze gay men's motives for sexual risk-taking in the context of the HIV/AIDS epidemic have led to a revival of medical thinking about homosexuality and breathed new life into punitive cliches about gay men's alleged low self-esteem, lack of self-control and various psychological "deficits." Against these insidious forms of sexual discipline, David Halperin champions neglected traditions of queer thought, both literary and popular, that afford possibilities for addressing the vexed question of what gay men want. Anyone searching for creative and non-judgmental ways to slow the spread of HIV/AIDS among gay men - or interested in new modes of thinking about gay male subjectivity - should read this book."--book jacket
