              The Last Years of the Monroe Doctrine: 1945-1993 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Smith, Gaddis

              When President Monroe issued his 1823 doctrine on U.S. policy in the Western Hemisphere, it quickly became as sacred to Americans as the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. But in the years after World War II - notably in Guatemala in 1954, in Brazil in 1963, in Chi...le in 1973, and in El Salvador in the 1980s - our government's policy of supporting repressive regimes in Central and South America hastened the death of the very doctrine that had been invoked to protect us in the Cold War, by associating its application with torture squads, murder, and the denial of the very democratic ideals the Monroe Doctrine was intended to protect. Gaddis Smith's measured but devastating account is essential reading for all those who care how the United States behaves in the world arena.

              The Superlative Man soars overhead, coming to the rescue of people in danger. The tabloids splash his every exploit across the front pages. The entire metropolis is in awe of him - except for Harvey Gander, whose parents died in a freak automobile accident caused by the Superlati...ve Man as he was dashing off to another adventure. Gander is a lonesome cub reporter for the Metropolitan Meteor, and when he is assigned a story about people saved by the Superlative Man, he stumbles on a conspiracy to expose the hero as a fake. The stakes are raised when two heavies threaten him just for interviewing Natasha Nyle, a footloose blonde from the Outer Borough. As the young reporter chases stories through the city's dark byways, moons over a slip of a girl named Violet Hayes, and falls under the spell of the wizened newshound Elmo Jade, he uncovers dark truths about the American superhero, while struggling to prove that he is, in his own way, a superlative man.

              The Repeal of Reticence: A History of America's Cultural and Legal Struggles Over Free Speech, Obscenity, Sexual Liberation, and Modern Art (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              This striking work explores the arguments made for and against three forces that have transformed American life in the past century -- invasive journalism, realistic fiction, and sex reform. Rochelle Gurstein examines the unexpected consequences of the victory of the party of exp...osure , which opened the public sphere to once private matters, and considers the positions of the party of reticence , which believed that an indiscriminate display of private matters deformed taste and judgment, towered the tone of public conversation, and polluted public space. Gurstein's penetrating analysis establishes the vital connection between legal-cultural history and current debates over obscenity, privacy, and public decency.

              The flowers, trees, birds, clouds, and effects of light that Schuyler describes with such elan, even if only glimpsed from the window of his apartment, could easily be transposed to the poetry written in Japan or Persia many centuries ago. Even more, his culture and learning, wor...n so lightly as almost to pass unnoticed, link his verse to other and larger traditions, as in this reflection on Baudelaire - clearly intended as an artistic credo of sorts ... - Open Letters Monthly
