Tocqueville between two worlds : the making of a political and theoretical life by Sheldon S Wolin( )

28 editions published between 2001 and 2009 in English and held by 2,393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alexis de Tocqueville may be the most influential political thinker in American history. He also led an unusually active and ambitious career in French politics. In this book, one of America's most important contemporary theorists draws on decades of research and thought to present the first work that fully connects to Tocqueville's political and theoretical lives. In doing so, Sheldon Wolin presents sweeping new interpretations of Tocqueville's major works and of his place in intellectual history. As he traces the origins and impact of Tocqueville's ideas, Wolin also offers a profound commentary on the general trajectory of Western political life over the past two hundred years."--Jacket
Politics and vision; continuity and innovation in Western political thought by Sheldon S Wolin( Book )

82 editions published between 1960 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 1,889 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Seldon Wolin's Politics and Vision inspired and instructed two generations of political theorists after its appearance in 1960. This new edition retains intact the original ten chapters about political thinkers from Plato to Mill, and adds seven chapters about theorists from Marx and Nietzche to Rawls and the postmodernists. The new chapters, which show how thinkers have grappled with the immense possibilities and dangers of modern power, are themselves a major theoretical statement. They culminate in Wolin's remarkable argument that the United States has invented a new political form, "inverted totalitarianism," in which economic rather than political power is dangerously dominant."--Jacket

Fugitive democracy : and other essays by Sheldon S Wolin( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 337 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sheldon Wolin was one of the most influential and original political thinkers of the past fifty years. Fugitive Democracy brings together his most important writings, from classic essays such as "Political Theory as a Vocation," written amid the Cold War and the conflict in Vietnam, to his late radical essays on American democracy such as Fugitive Democracy, in which he offers a controversial reinterpretation of democracy as an episodic phenomenon distinct from the routinized political management that passes for democracy today. The breathtaking range of Wolin's scholarship, political commitment, and critical acumen are on full display in this authoritative and accessible collection. He critically engages a diverse range of political theorists, including Thomas Hobbes, Karl Marx, Max Weber, Hannah Arendt, John Rawls, Michel Foucault, and Richard Rorty. These essays grapple with topics such as power, modernization, the sixties, revolutionary politics, and inequality, all the while showcasing Wolin s enduring commitment to writing civic-minded theoretical commentary on the most pressing political issues of the day. Here, Wolin laments the rise of conservatives who style themselves as revolutionary, criticizes Rawlsian liberals as abstract to the point of being apolitical, diagnoses postmodern theory as a form of acquiescence, and much more. Fugitive Democracy offers enduring insights into many of today s most pressing political predicaments, and introduces a whole new generation of readers to this provocative figure in contemporary political thought. -- Amazon.com

Democracia S.A. : la democracia dirigida y el fantasma del totalitarismo invertido by Sheldon S Wolin( Book )

11 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"¿Es posible pensar que el país democrático por antonomasia, los Estados Unidos de América, no sea en realidad en absoluto democrático? ¿Que los Estados Unidos se hayan metamorfoseado en una nueva y extraña especie de híbrido político en el que el poder económico y el poder del Estado se han asociado y quedado fuera de control? ¿Es posible que ese país, "el más poderoso de la Tierra", "Superpoder", haya descendido hacia una forma invertida del totalitarismo? Sheldon Wolin, probablemente el más destacado teórico norteamericano de la democracia, analiza en esta obra los rasgos dominantes de un régimen que, si bien no puede ser comparado moral ni políticamente con los estados totalitarios del siglo XX (la Alemania nazi, la Italia fascista, la Unión Soviética), deriva peligrosamente hacia una situación en la que el descontrolado poder económico puede convertirse en un "poder total", con sus propias patologías. Un régimen cuyos ciudadanos son políticamente apáticos y sumisos, y en el cual las élites desean que sigan siéndolo. En el mejor de los casos, afirma Wolin, los Estados Unidos se han convertido en una "democracia dirigida" en la que el pueblo es manipulado y no soberano y, en el peor de los casos, en un país donde el poder corporativo no responde a los controles del Estado. De acuerdo con la tesis según la cual "es posible que una forma de totalitarismo diferente de la clásica surja a partir de una supuesta democracia fuerte en lugar de una fracasada", Sheldon Wolin ofrece en este libro, tan oportuno como inquietante, uno de los diagnósticos más oscuros sobre los males de la política que se han realizado en las últimas décadas: un diagnóstico que parece confirmarse a la luz de los acontecimientos actuales y de la crisis de un sistema financiero que escapó a todo control."--Contratapa
