Making the American Century Oxford University Press
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
The twentieth century has been popularly seen as "the American Century," as publisher Henry Luce dubbed it, a long period in which the United States had amassed the economic resources, the political and military strength, and the moral prestige to assume global leadership. By century's end, the trajectory of American politics, the sense of ever waxing federal power, and the nation's place in the world seemed less assured. Americans of many stripes came to contest the standard narratives of nation building and international hegemony that generations of historians dutifully charted. In this volume, a group of distinguished junior and senior historians-including John McGreevy, James Campbell, Elizabeth Borgwardt, Eric Rauchway, Elizabeth Cobbs Hoffman, and James Kloppenberg- revisit and revise many of the chestnuts of American political history. First and foremost, the contributors challenge the teleological view of the inexorable transformation of the United States into a modern nation. To be sure, chain stores replaced mom-and-pop businesses, interstate highways knit together once isolated regions, national media shaped debate from coast-to coast, and the IRS, the EPA, the Federal Reserve, the Social Security Administration and other instruments of national power became daily presences in the lives of ordinary Americans. But the local and the parochial did not inexorably give way to the national and eventually to global integration. Instead, the contributors to this volume illustrate the ongoing dialectic between centrifugal and centripetal forces in the development of the twentieth century United States. The essays analyze a host of ways in which local places are drawn into a wider polity and culture. At the same time, they reveal how national and international structures and ideas repeatedly create new kinds of local movements and local energies. The authors also challenge the tendency to view American politics as a series of conflicts between liberalism and conservatism, which Arthur Schlesinger, Sr. and Jr. codified as the idea that American national politics routinely experienced roughly fifteen year periods of liberal reform followed by similar intervals of conservative reaction. For generations, American political history remained the story of reform, the rise and fall, triumphs and setbacks of successive waves of reformers-Jacksonian Democrats and abolitionists, Populists and Progressives, New Dealers and Great Society poverty warriors-and, recently, equally rich scholarship has explored the origins and development of American conservatism. The contributors do not treat the left and right as separate phenomena, as the dominant forces of different eras. Instead they assert the liberal and the conservative are always and essentially intertwined, mutually constituted and mutually constituting. Modern American liberalism operates amid tenacious, recurring forces that shape and delimit the landscape of social reform and political action just as conservatives layered their efforts over the cumulative achievements of twentieth century liberalism, necessarily accommodating themselves to shifts in the instruments of government, social mores and popular culture. These essays also unravel a third traditional polarity in twentieth century U.S. history, the apparent divide between foreign policy and domestic politics. Notwithstanding its proud anti-colonial heritage and its enduring skepticism about foreign entanglements, the United States has been and remains a robustly international (if not imperial) nation. The authors in this volume-with many formative figures in the ongoing internationalization of American history represented among them-demonstrate that international connections (not only in the realm of diplomacy but also in matters of migration, commerce, and culture) have transformed domestic life in myriad ways and, in turn, that the American presence in the world has been shaped by its distinctive domestic political culture. Blurring the boundaries between political, cultural, and economic history, this collective volume aims to raise penetrating questions and challenge readers' understanding of the broader narrative of twentieth-century U.S. history.
Refabricating City: a Reflection Oxford University Press (China) Ltd
Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna
This publication is at once a record of and a reflection on the Biennale. The book consists of four main parts. The first part Forum features interviews with Ralph Lerner, Chang Yung-ho, Rocco Yim and Wang Weijen, as well as Leo Lee's interpretation, Zhu Tao's and Ruan Ching-Yue's critiques, Liu Jiakun's and Huang Sheng Yuan's reflections on the Biennale. We also invited twenty participants of the Biennale for their feedbacks, and the first members of the Steering Committee to share with us the origins of the Biennale. These various texts, by commenting on common issues such as the uniqueness of Hong Kong's urban spaces vs. the ordinariness of her architecture, the role and future of the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Biennale, historical buildings and the meaning of public space, provide us valuable references for strategizing on the future of our architecture and city. The second part Exhibition, which makes up the main content of this book, presents our visual record of all exhibits. The third part Venue and Event documents our understanding of the Central Police Station, the design and implementation, as well as the curatorial planning and program. The fourth part is Lecture and Dialogue, which includes five main lectures and six dialogue events covering important topics related to the Biennale theme: refabrication and regeneration, memory and future, the global and the local, Hong Kong and Shenzhen, urbanism and landscape. In the course of editing this book, the 2009 Biennale has already launched in West Kowloon, and the direction of Central Police Station Compound and West Kowloon Planning has also became clearer. At the same time, citizen protests on the development of high-speed railway start to grip the attention of the Hong Kong media. This reminds us of the situation on the eve of the Biennale opening two years ago, when conservation activists and the media questioned the usage of historical buildings as the venue for an architecture biennale. In dealing with this crisis, we came to realize that what we were faced with were our frustrated citizens, who suffered chronically under the hegemony of procedural rationality, and who just had the urban memory of Star Ferry and Queen's Pier wiped out. We requested our exhibiters to amend their exhibit design in the last minute to leave intact any of the internal furnishings, not because we shared the nostalgic attitude of treating historical architecture as untouchable antiques, but because we believed this Biennale also took part in the urban process of shaping our public space: it was an urban process of consensus-building and negotiation for a shared urban value. If every biennale could become an urban process of what Michel de Certeau theorized as the "practice of everyday life", it could certainly in many ways inspire our cultural imagination on space. Through the exhibits' interpretation and appropriation of a walled colonial prison compound, and the visitors' occupation of prison cells and courtyards, the 2007 Biennale engendered a double reading between architectural display and urban history. By setting up temporary exhibition structures and landscape in West Kowloon, the 2009 Biennale, opened up the public's experience, reflection and projection of this future cultural space. By bringing our citizens into the exhibition venue, it is hoped that the Biennales will lead them to look into the spatial possibilities of the architecture: In what form should the public space take? What kind of cultural forum should it provide? What sort of strategy on public space will the government's new proposals offer? Whether it is the Biennale at Central Police Station or at the West Kowloon, through an urban processes of exploration in public space and participation in cultural forums, would our citizens be able to generate discourses to counter or negotiate with the procedural rationality, therefore be ready to state clearly what is needed for our city is more than an iconic landmark, but a public realm that allows everyone to interchange on all levels?

In this rich ethnography, Emma Baulch examines the complex identity politics that played out within Bali's reggae, punk, and death metal subcultures during the 1990s. She takes readers inside each scene: hanging out with the Balinese death-metal band Phobia, among unemployed university graduates clad in black t-shirts and ragged jeans; among young men sporting mohawks, leather jackets, and hefty jackboots, participating in the punk scene with the bands Superman Is Dead and Triple Punk; and among the remnants of the local reggae scene in Kuta Beach, the island's most renowned tourist area. Baulch tracks how each music scene arrived and grew in Bali, looking at the influence of factors including performance venues for amateur bands, the global extreme metal underground, MTV Asia, and the deregulation of Indonesia's media. She analyzes Balinese youth's reasons for participating in each subculture as well as the ways that they asserted each scene's specific character through dance, dress, claims to public spaces, and performance
