Shifting Terrain: Essays on Politics, History and Society

Front Cover
Peter Lang, 2006 - History - 182 pages
"Shifting Terrain" places contemporary political, economic, and social questions in long-range historical context. An essay on the new American imperialism is set against one that considers enduring lessons from Thucydides on the hubris of empire. The deep Lockean liberal structure of American politics is treated, along with a case history of the labor movement. Essays on child labor, hunger and poverty explore topics in world political economy as it affects the most dispossessed.
