Titles About The Rules of Power
Amoral, Cunning, Ruthless, And Instructive, The Definitive Rules of Power Manual For Anyone Interested In Gaining, Observing, Or Defending Against Ultimate Control: This title distills three thousand years of the history of power into 48 essential laws by drawing from the philosophies of Machiavelli, Sun Tzu, and Carl Von Clausewitz and also from the lives of figures ranging from Henry Kissinger to P.T. Barnum.
Slavery appears as a figurative construct during the English revolution of the mid-seventeenth century, and again in the American and French revolutions, when radicals represent their treatment as a form of political slavery. In the Rules of Power, what, if anything, does figurative, political slavery have to do with transatlantic slavery? This title explores connections between political and chattel slavery by excavating the tradition of Western political thought that justifies actively opposing tyranny. It argues that as powerful rhetorical and conceptual constructs, Greco-Roman political liberty and slavery reemerge at the time of early modern Eurocolonial expansion; they help to create racialized ‘free’ national identities and their ‘unfree’ counterparts in non-European nations represented as inhabiting an earlier, privative age.
The World’s Foremost Critic Of U.S. Foreign Policy Exposes The Hollow Promises Of Democracy In American Actions Abroad, And At Home: The United States has repeatedly asserted its right to intervene against ‘failed states’ around the globe. In this sequel to ‘Hegemony or Survival’, Noam Chomsky turns the tables, charging the United States with being a ‘failed state,’ and thus a danger to its own people and the world. ‘Failed states’ Chomsky writes, are those ‘that do not protect their citizens from violence and perhaps even destruction, that regard themselves as beyond the reach of domestic or international law, and that suffer from a ‘democratic deficit,’ having democratic forms but with limited substance.’ Exploring recent U.S. foreign and domestic policies, Chomsky assesses Washington’s escalation of the nuclear risk; the dangerous consequences of the occupation of Iraq; and America’s self-exemption from international law. He also examines the Rules of Power in an American electoral system that frustrates genuine political alternatives, thus impeding any meaningful democracy.
A Classic Work In Political Philosophy, Intellectual And Cultural History, And Economics: This title has inspired and infuriated politicians, scholars, and general readers for half a century. Originally published in 1944, when Eleanor Roosevelt supported the efforts of Stalin, and Albert Einstein subscribed lock, stock, and barrel to the socialist program, it was seen as heretical for its passionate warning against the dangers of state control over the means of production. It warned that the Rules of Power under collectivist idea of empowering government with increasing economic control would lead not to a utopia but to the horrors of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy.
