Glencoe, Illinois: The Free Press, 1960. First edition. Octavo. Original cloth and dust jacket (not price-clipped). Edgewear to dust jacket, particularly to foot of the front wrapper and spine, including a few small closed tears to jacket; some smudging and sunning to spine and jacket; faint sticker mark to rear wrapper; leaves bright and unmarked. A well-preserved first edition of Bell's most influential work; difficult to find in this condition. Near-fine in a very good-plus dust jacket.. First edition of Daniel Bell's (1919-2011) most influential work evaluating the changing intellectual life in the mid-twentieth century. Bell was a prominent American sociologist, writer, editor, and professor who once described himself as a "socialist in economics, a liberal in politics, and a conservative in culture." Bell began his career as a journalist and served as managing editor of The New Leader (1941-1945), labor editor at Fortune (1948-1958), and co-editor with Irving Kristol of The Public Interest (1965-1973). Bell also taught at a variety of institutions, including the University of Chicago, Columbia University, and Harvard University, and was elected as a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1964. Bell was an influential contributor to post-industrial thought and his most influential work, The End of Ideology: On the Exhaustion of Political Ideas in the Fifties, first published by the Free Press in 1960, presents Bell's thesis that the celebrated humanist ideologies of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries are both spent and bound to be supplanted by more localized movements that negotiate within the increasingly affluent, technocratic, and liberal paradigm. An uncommonly bright first edition of Bell's intriguing (and some may say prophetic) assessment of the changing intellectual currents of the modern West, which was named by the Times Literary Supplement as one of the 100 most influential books since the end of World War II.

The pages are white, crisp and clear of any markings. "This is a history of the visual arts produced in the geographical area that now constitutes the United States. Such a book is difficult to title. A History of United States Art sounds awkward and logically might even be construed to exclude the arts of the colonial period. Thus, with apologies to our northern and southern neighbors, I use the title A History of American Art, knowing full well that the terms America and the United States are not synonymous...." - Preface from A History of American Art

Description:
Indianapolis: Dog Ear Publishing, January 2013. Trade Paperback. Fine. Slight reading wear to corners, otherwise pristine. Not from a library. No remainder mark. Not clipped. Not damaged. Suitable for gifting. 163 pages. The 25 authors of this book were volunteers in the first Peace Corps rural community development project in Africa: Sierra Leone, 1965-67. They are also the first group to tell a collective story of Peace Corps volunteers, anywhere. The Peace Corps was in its infancy then, and memories of John Kennedy were strong among the young volunteers. Sierra Leone was also in its infancy in the first few years after independence, before military coups and tribal warfare became common. The authors forthrightly recount their feelings of loneliness and isolation, and their frightening experiences with secret societies and witchcraft, but their uniquely optimistic "can-do" American attitude brought most through a great life experience.
