All that is solid melts into air : the experience of modernity by Marshall Berman( Book )

112 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The political and social revolutions of the nineteenth century, the pivotal writings of Goethe, Marx, Dostoevsky, and others, and the creation of new environments to replace the old - all have thrust us into a modern world of contradictions and ambiguities. In this fascinating book, Marshall Berman examines the clash of classes, histories, and cultures, and ponders our prospects for coming to terms with the relationship between a liberating social and philosophical idealism and a complex, bureaucratic materialism. From a reinterpretation of Karl Marx to an incisive consideration of the impact of Robert Moses on modern urban living, Berman charts the progress of the twentieth-century experience. He concludes that adaptation to continual flux is possible and that therein lies our hope for achieving a truly modern society."--Back cover
The politics of authenticity; radical individualism and the emergence of modern society by Marshall Berman( Book )

28 editions published between 1970 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 858 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'"--Page 4 of cover
On the town : one hundred years of spectacle in Times Square by Marshall Berman( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 466 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."--Jacket
Adventures in Marxism by Marshall Berman( Book )

15 editions published between 1999 and 2005 in 4 languages and held by 397 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."--Jacket
