Tales for little rebels : a collection of radical children's literature ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 709 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: In 1912, a revolutionary chick cries, "Strike down the wall!" and liberates itself from the "egg state." In 1940, ostriches pull their heads out of the sand and unite to fight fascism. In 1972, Baby X grows up without a gender and is happy about it. Rather than teaching children to obey authority, to conform, or to seek redemption through prayer, twentieth-century leftists encouraged children to question the authority of those in power. Tales for Little Rebels collects forty-three mostly out-of-print stories, poems, comic strips, primers, and other texts for children that embody this radical tradition. These pieces reflect the concerns of twentieth-century leftist movements, like peace, civil rights, gender equality, environmental responsibility, and the dignity of labor. They also address the means of achieving these ideals, including taking collective action, developing critical thinking skills, and harnessing the liberating power of the imagination. Some of the authors and illustrators are familiar, including Lucille Clifton, Syd Hoff, Langston Hughes, Walt Kelly, Norma Klein, Munro Leaf, Julius Lester, Eve Merriam, Charlotte Pomerantz, Carl Sandburg, and Dr. Seuss. Others are relatively unknown today, but their work deserves to be remembered. (Each of the pieces includes an introduction and a biographical sketch of the author.) From the anti-advertising message of Johnny Get Your Money's Worth (and Jane Too)! (1938) to the entertaining lessons in ecology provided by The Day They Parachuted Cats on Borneo (1971), and Sandburg's mockery of war in Rootabaga Pigeons (1923), these pieces will thrill readers intrigued by politics and history-and anyone with a love of children's literature, no matter what age

Yeats and the heroic ideal by Alex Zwerdling ( Book )
1 edition published in 1965 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The difficulties in a democracy have been a central theme in much of Western literature during the twentieth century--a theme that finds explicit presentation in the writings of W.B. Yeats. In [the author's view], Yeats's involvement in the Irish Independence movement, his interest in myth, religion, and the occult, his praise of aristocratic values, and his participation in Irish public life were all related expressions of the poet's desire to re-establish the vision of heroism as the central ideal of human conduct." -- From dust jacket inside front cover flap

Mahābhārata by Vyāsa ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In India's great epic the Mahab︢h¡rata, the eighth book, "Karna," recounts the events that occurred during the mighty hero Karna's two days as general of the K¡urava army. This second volume resumes on the war's seventeenth and penultimate day. This will be a momentous day for the Bh¡rata clans and especially for a number of their most distinguished heroes, with some of the epic's most telegraphed events reaching their climax. Not only will the epic's most anticipated duel between its greatest champions Arjuna and Karna be played out to its cruel and tragic end, but one of the more gruesome episodes in the epic will also take place with Duhsh¡sana meeting the fate that has long waited him since his brazen maltreatment of Dr¡upadi in the assembly hall
Lawless capitalism : the subprime crisis and the case for an economic rule of law by Steven A Ramirez ( Book )
1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The subprime mortgage crisis has been blamed on many: the Bush Administration, Bernie Madoff, the financial industry, overzealous housing developers. Yet little scrutiny has been placed on the American legal system as a whole, even though parts of that system, such as the laws that regulate high-risk lending, have been dissected to bits and pieces. In this innovative and exhaustive study, Steven A. Ramirez posits that the subprime mortgage crisis, as well as the global macroeconomic catastrophe it spawned, is traceable to a gross failure of law. The rule of law must appropriately channel and constrain the exercise of economic and political power. Used effectively, it ensures that economic opportunity isn't limited to a small group of elites that enjoy growth at the expense of many, particularly those in vulnerable economic situations. In Lawless Capitalism, Ramirez calls for the rule of law to displace crony capitalism. Only through the rule of law, he argues, can capitalism be reconstructed"--Provided by publisher
