Any attempot to write one must therefore be based on a personal approach." -- from the Foreword

While revealing the central importance of the previously neglected Bloch, and his journal in Wilhelmine Social Democracy, it also sheds fresh light on the thought of Bernstein and his role in classical German Social Democracy. The result of extensive research in Germany and Austria, it is based on a solid grasp of the secondary literature as well as a thorough mastery of all the relevant primary sources."

London Quercus 2009 1847249299 / 9781847249296 First Hard Cover Fine Fine Octavo 
211 pp. As new. "Lincoln and Darwin grasped this double truth: modern liberal eloquence is rooted in fact, divided in feeling. In their lifetimes, they took the fatuous and optimistic liberalism of triumphal democracy and ever-improving nature and improvised towards a fatalistic but far from despairing idea of providence and the workings of time. All their angels are ages. They gave liberalism a tragic consciousness without robbing it of a hopeful view."

15 Horne, Donald The Public Culture: The Triumph of Industrialism
London and Sydney Pluto Press 1990 0745300677 / 9780745300672 First Paperback Very Good Octavo 
264 pp. Very light general and edgewear to illustrated covers. Page edges lightly browned. Internally clean and tightly bound. "Through its political and moral rhetoric, its music, its television, a society constructs its public culture. The state uses its control of the media to impose its values. In both the capitalist societies of the West and the Communist societies of the East, the dominant values are the values of industrialism. However, a spirited challenge is coming from the women's, ecological and black movements -- from those who represent a vibrant counter culture. As the threat of a new moral ice-age looms, the counter-culture's espousal of race, gender and class are more necessary than ever."
