E-BOOK EXCERPT

Can politics be combined with entertainment? Can political involvement and participation be fun? Politics and popular culture are converging all the time, whether it's in Arnold Schwarzenegger's election as governor of California or in political television dramas and movies like The West Wing and Dave. This book encourages readers to think about how links between entertainment and politics have the potential to rejuvenate citizenship, endorse civic values, and sustain civic commitment. Instead of discarding the popular as irrelevant or dangerous to the democratic process, Liesbet van Zoonen shows us the possibilities for increasing political knowledge and participation through the arenas of politics and popular music, political "soaps," political television dramas, and politicians as celebrities. A first-rate starting point for debate, Entertaining the Citizen will stimulate and entertain students and general readers alike.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

"Jann Pasler's remarkable "Composing the Citizen "reaches well beyond what any book concerned with music in society has ever attempted. Concentrating on France of the Third Republic, from the 1870s through the early 1900s, she demonstrates convincingly how music--whether new, old, popular, or elite, whether performed at institutions of state (such as the Opera), the Folies Bergere, concert halls, or the zoo--helped to redefine what it meant to be French under evolving political circumstances. Equally adept in the languages of history, sociology, political science, reception history, and music analysis, Pasler establishes music's cultural significance and implicitly illuminates the role it can still play in countries like the United States."--Philip Gossett, The University of Chicago and University of Rome, La Sapienza ""Composing the Citizen" offers nothing less than a new paradigm for the study of musical cultures. Rather than forcing French music into the moulds developed for the Austro-German canon, Pasler simply studies the social uses of music in fin-de-siecle France. Her painstaking archival research allows her to present an astonishingly detailed account of musical practices, tastes, and activities; new names and genres come to the fore to engage in a variety of dynamic artistic scenes most of us never knew--or only thought we did by virtue of having read Proust. A masterwork of a scholar at the very peak of her career."--Susan McClary, MacArthur Fellow 1995 and author of "Georges Bizet: Carmen" and "Modal Subjectivities: Self-Fashioning in the Italian Madgrigal" "Utilite publique: a common-sense republican notion of sweeping consequence. In this greatly anticipated volume Jann Pasler uses it as touchstone, showing how and why musical life so mattered in Third-Republic France: layer after layer of it, in a journey that takes us past the Opera and Conservatoire to the pops concerts, department stores, the zoo, the world's fairs, the overseas colonies. Companionable as a well-worn Baedeker, seductive as Roger Shattuck's The Banquet Years, this exquisitely styled and paced achievement is also a compelling read."--D. Kern Holoman, author of "Berlioz" and "The Societe des Concerts du Conservatoire, 1828-1967"

De Cive (On the Citizen) is the first full exposition of the political thought of Thomas Hobbes, the greatest English political philosopher of all time. Professors Tuck and Silverthorne have undertaken the first complete translation since 1651, a rendition long thought (in error) to be at least sanctioned by Hobbes himself. On the Citizen is written in a clear, straightforward, expository style, offering students a more digestible account of Hobbes's political thought than even the Leviathan itself. This new translation is itself a very significant scholarly event.

E-BOOK EXCERPT

This book studies how the legal system handles the ever-changing lines between public and private power. It covers the paradox that occurs when the Constitution's expansion of one individual's spheres of protection ultimately leads to the contraction of another person's sphere of freedom. In order to exhibit the legal system's reaction to such a paradox, the study describes diverse approaches in course law, doctrine, and theory. It covers premises common to these approaches and their inability to resolve the problem. It confronts and exposes the different views of the citizen-state relationship implicit in those approaches. Finally, the study suggests that continuing to question and investigate perspectives of the citizen-state relationship will offer insight as to how the conduct of private individuals and public officials might properly be governed. Images of the Citizen and the State will appeal to law teachers and scholars as well as those in practice. It is highly appropriate for courses and seminars in constitutional law, civil rights law, jurisprudence, and legal theory.

Surkis shows how masculine sexuality became central to the making of a republican social order. Marriage, Surkis argues, affirmed the citizen's masculinity, while also containing and controlling his desires.
