The Enigma of Clarence Thomas book cover
The Enigma of Clarence Thomas
Corey Robin - 2019-09-24
Calificación de Goodreads
This groundbreaking book delves into the enigmatic Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, exploring his political writings and speeches alongside his Supreme Court opinions. The author reveals Thomas's hidden source of conservative views, which stem from a profound skepticism that racism can be overcome. This racial pessimism, which often sounds similar to liberal views on progress, is a key factor in today's political divide.

carefully he marshals his evidence. It isn’t every day that reading about ideas can be both so gratifying and unsettling, and Robin’s incisive and superbly argued book has made me think again.”      fuente

Corey Robin
Good books are books you can't put down. Great books are books you have to put down, so intense is their energy. Frances Wilson's "The Ballad of Dorothy Wordsworth" is such a book. Nobody gets inside the life of another being the way Wilson does.      fuente

Ever want to read the story of how a book came to be? This is an amazing biography of a novel. (And an amazing literary biography, more generally.)      fuente
The Netanyahus book cover
The Netanyahus
An Account of a Minor and Ultimately Even Negligible Episode in the History of a Very Famous Family
Joshua Cohen - 2021-05-05
Calificación de Goodreads
A Jewish historian is forced to play host to Benzion Netanyahu and his family during a hiring committee interview at a campus in upstate New York. Mixing fiction with nonfiction, The Netanyahus is a genre-bending comedy of blending, identity, and politics that showcases Joshua Cohen's impressive skills as a writer.
Corey Robin
I'll be talking with Joshua Cohen about his new novel, "The Netanyahus," on 6/22. Register! It's a great book and this guy is just popping with ideas. Seriously, was re-reading the book, and by the 3d page, had way too many questions for one conversation.      fuente

The Anatomy of Fascism book cover
The Anatomy of Fascism
Robert O. Paxton - 2005-03-08 (publicado por primera vez en 2004)
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the rise of fascism in twentieth century Europe like never before with The Anatomy of Fascism. Esteemed historian Robert O. Paxton delves into the concrete actions of fascist regimes, rather than their abstract ideologies, to understand why they came to power in certain countries and not others. From Mussolini's rise to power to Germany's radicalization in WWII, this compelling book offers a lasting impact on our understanding of modern European history. A must-read for those interested in politics and history.
Corey Robin
There have been few more widely circulated quotes from Paxton than this one. But his is a rich book, most of which people ignore or don't know. Like this from his discussion of "long-term preconditions": "Fascism is therefore inconceivable in the absence of a mature and...      fuente
Black Nationalism in American Politics and Thought book cover
Black Nationalism in American Politics and Thought
Dean E. Robinson - 2001-09-03
Calificación de Goodreads
Explore the history and evolution of Black Nationalism in American Politics and Thought, from its origins in the mid-19th century to today. This thought-provoking book challenges the notion that black nationalism is an unchanging, anti-assimilationist ideology and highlights how it reflects broader currents in U.S. politics and thought. Discover how black nationalism draws on unique political strategy and thinking from specific historical eras, while unwittingly reproducing strategies and thinking that have contributed to racial inequality.
Corey Robin
Awesome conversation between @BadFaithPod and Adolph Reed, @paul_prescod, and the all too seldom seen (on social media) Dean Robinson, whose book on black nationalism is excellent. Adolph's political realism reminds me of Weber, at his best.      fuente
Black Struggle, Red Scare book cover
Black Struggle, Red Scare
Segregation and Anti-Communism in the South, 1948--1968
Jeff R Woods - 2003-10-31
Calificación de Goodreads
Exploiting the Cold War climate, southern segregationists linked the civil rights movement to an international Communist conspiracy. In this gripping and extensively researched book, Jeff Woods delves into the fear-mongering tactics of politicians and the pervasive paranoia that led to the Southern Red Scare. By focusing on the intense period of racial tension and Communist obsession, Woods documents the dangerous waste of public funds and illegal means used to put an end to what proved to be a nearly nonexistent threat. As a result, civil rights leaders were forced to disassociate themselves from Marxists and gain sympathy from the American public, but it came at the cost of losing some of their strongest supporters. This is a must-read for anyone interested in balancing liberty, security, and racial justice during a tumultuous era in American history.

La muerte en Venecia book cover
La muerte en Venecia
Thomas Mann - 2005-05-31 (publicado por primera vez en 1912)
Calificación de Goodreads
Un compositor envejecido y fatigado descubre, en medio de la decadente belleza veneciana, el espontáneo atractivo de un angelical adolescente. Publicada en 1914, esta novela cimentaría la fama de Mann, que en 1929 recibió el premio Nobel. Completa este volumen otro espléndido relato de Mann, Mario y el mago, y un interesante prólogo del académico de la lengua Francisco Ayala.
