The making of a counter culture; reflections on the technocratic society and its youthful opposition by Theodore Roszak( Book )
45 editions published between 1958 and 1995 in 3 languages and held by 2,719 libraries worldwide
When it was first published, this book captured a huge audience of Vietnam War protesters, dropouts, and rebels--as well as their baffled elders. The author found common ground between 1960s student radicals and hippie dropouts in their mutual rejection of what he calls the technocracy--the regime of corporate and technological expertise that dominates industrial society. He traces the intellectual underpinnings of the two groups in the writings of Herbert Marcuse, Norman O. Brown, Allen Ginsberg, and Paul Goodman

From the golden age of art movies and underground cinema to X-rated porn, splatter films, and midnight movies, this breathtaking thriller is a tour de force of cinematic fact and fantasy, full of metaphysical mysteries that will haunt the dreams of every moviegoer. Jonathan Gates could not have anticipated that his student studies would lead him to uncover the secret history of the moviesa tale of intrigue, deception, and death that stretches back to the 14th century. But he succumbs to what will be a lifelong obsession with the mysterious Max Castle, a nearly forgotten genius of the silent screen who later became the greatest director of horror films, only to vanish in the 1940s, at the height of his talent. Now, 20 years later, as Jonathan seeks the truth behind Castle's disappearance, the innocent entertainments of his youththe sexy sirens, the screwball comedies, the high romancetake on a sinister appearance. His tortured quest takes him from Hollywood's Poverty Row into the shadowy lore of ancient religious heresies. He encounters a cast of exotic characters, including Orson Welles and John Huston, who teach him that there's more to film than meets the eye, and journeys through the dark side of nostalgia, where the Three Stooges and Shirley Temple join company with an alien god whose purposes are anything but entertainment

The gendered atom reflections on the sexual psychology of science by Theodore Roszak( file )
8 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 913 libraries worldwide
"Modern scientists, from the age of Galileo and Newton, have subjected nature - Mother Earth - to a typically masculine drive to control and exploit. Deftly drawing on insights from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein - the classic tale of science gone mad - and from the new field of feminist psychology, the author shows how centuries of male domination have distorted not only scientific research and development, but also our relationship to one another and to the natural world."--BOOK JACKET. "The Gendered Atom envisions a new, gender-free science that lies beyond sexual politics, respects our community with nature, and promises a healthier, more sustainable relationship between ourselves and the world we inhabit."--BOOK JACKET

Ecopsychology represents an attempt to find ecology within the context of human psychology and, in turn, to find human psychology in the context of ecology.

To heal, we must find our way back home

The Making of an Elder Culture reminds the boomers of the creative role they once played in our society and of the moral and intellectual resources they have to draw upon for radical transformation in their later years. Seeing the experience of aging as a revolution in consciousness, it predicts an "elder insurgency" where boomers return to take up what they left undone in their youth. Freed from competitive individualism, military-industrial bravado, and the careerist rat race, who better to forge a compassionate economy? Who better positioned not only to demand Social Security and Medicare f

America the wise : the longevity revolution and the true wealth of nations by Theodore Roszak( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 710 libraries worldwide
Far from being an unaffordable burden, Roszak argues, longevity is the true wealth of nations. He envisions the ability to prolong productive and fulfilling lives as a paramount historical achievement rather than a recipe for fiscal disaster. The longevity revolution will force Americans to rethink their attitudes toward death and life, competition and cooperation, wealth and well-being. America the Wise is the first book to offer a comprehensive examination of our changing demographic patterns and to find in them the seeds of a new society based not on the survival of the fittest but on wisdom, compassion, and the survival of the gentlest. Its predictions will ignite a nationwide debate that promises to transform our most fundamental ethical and cultural values as well as our economic and political priorities
The cult of information : a neo-Luddite treatise on high tech, artificial intelligence, and the true art of thinking by Theodore Roszak( Book )
10 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 679 libraries worldwide
As we devote ever-increasing resources to providing, or prohibiting, access to information via computer, Theodore Roszak reminds us that voluminous information does not necessarily lead to sound thinking. "Data glut" obscures basic questions of justice and purpose and may even hinder rather than enhance our productivity. In this revised and updated edition of The Cult of Information, Roszak reviews the disruptive role the computer has come to play in international finance and the way in which "edutainment" software and computer games degrade the literacy of children. At the same time, he finds hopeful new ways in which the library and free citizens' access to the Internet and the national data-highway can turn computer technology into a democratic and liberating force. Roszak's examination of the place of computer technology in our culture is essential reading for all those who use computers, who are intimidated by computers, or who are concerned with the appropriate role of computers in the education of our children. --Publisher description

As the crisis deepens, powers darker and more mysterious than modern science can understand must be invoked in order to defend a threatened humanity
