Imperial Benevolence
31,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This is a necessary and urgent read for anyone concerned about the United States' endless wars. Investigating multiple genres of popular culture alongside contemporary U.S. foreign policy and political economy, Imperial Benevolence shows that American popular culture continuously suppresses awareness of U.S. imperialism while assuming American exceptionalism and innocence. This is despite the fact that it is rarely a product of the state. Expertly coordinated essays by prominent historians and media scholars address the ways that movies and television series such as Zero Dark Thirty, The Avengers, and even The Walking Dead, as well as video games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops, have largely presented the United States as a global force for good. Popular culture, with few exceptions, has depicted the U.S. as a reluctant hegemon fiercely defending human rights and protecting or expanding democracy from the barbarians determined to destroy it.

“I LOVE THE GRAY MAN.”—#1 New York Times bestselling author Lee Child   “BOURNE FOR THE NEW MILLENNIUM.”—New York Times bestselling author James Rollins Praise for Mission Critical “This novel is vintage Greaney, with a tight plot, a ticking clock, and a sympathetic antihero…This is good, Clancy-esque entertainment. May the evildoers of the world have nightmares that Violator becomes a real person.”— Kirkus Reviews “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) “Greaney knows what military action fans want and delivers in spades.”— Publishers Weekly “Mesmerizing…Equal parts revenge drama and conspiracy tale, Mission Critical combines the best of John le Carré and Robert Ludlum. Greaney has fashioned a masterpiece of an action thriller, mixed with deep-seated global politics, placing him on level footing with the likes of Brad Thor, Brad Taylor and the late, great Vince Flynn.”— Providence Journal “The latest in the Gray Man series continues to demonstrate why Greaney belongs in the upper echelon of special-ops thriller authors.”— Booklist (starred review) Praise for Agent in Place “Reminiscent of John le Carré…Exquisite in its execution, the relentlessly riveting, “Agent in Place” firmly plants Greaney alongside Brad Taylor and Brad Thor as the masters of this thriller subgenre.” —Providence Journal  “Readers of the great Tom Clancy will salivate over this fast-moving and well-plotted yarn, which is part of a consistently appealing series in which each assignment is billed as the most dangerous ever. Somehow, Greaney cranks out one winner after another. That's a lot of work for the Gray Man and plenty of vicarious pleasure for thriller fans.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review) “Greaney’s steady escalation of the risks that Court faces, and the exceedingly clever ways he tackles them, make this entry in the exemplary Gray Man series a can’t-miss.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) Praise for Gunmetal Gray   “Fans of RPG, Hong Kong action films, and high-octane storytelling will love the Gray Man, who battles full-bore through this fast-paced series.”— The Washington Post   “A nonstop barrage of action.”— The Memphis Commercial Appeal   “Jam-packed with action and adventure. It is as modern as tomorrow’s headlines and moves with fascinating speed from country to country.”— Lincoln Journal Star    “This one is fat, fast, and fun. Clancy’s spirit lives on.”— Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

HUNGRY FOR CHANGE? Put the power of food co-ops on your plate and grow your local food economy. If you eat, you should give this book a read.

STUART REID, Executive Director, Food Co-op Initiative FOOD HAS BECOME ground-zero in our efforts to increase awareness of how our choices impact the world. Yet while we have begun to transform our communities and dinner plates, the most authoritative strand of the food web has received surprisingly little attention: the grocery store—the epicenter of our food-gathering ritual. Through penetrating analysis and inspiring stories and examples of American and Canadian food co-ops, Grocery Story makes a compelling case for the transformation of the grocery store aisles as the emerging frontier in the local and good food movements.Author Jon Steinman: Deconstructs the food retail sector and the shadows cast by corporate giants Makes the case for food co-ops as an alternative Shows how co-ops spur the creation of local food-based economies and enhance low-income food access. Grocery Story is for everyone who eats. Whether you strive to eat more local and sustainable food, or are in support of community economic development, Grocery Story will leave you hungry to join the food co-op movement in your own community. A 'must-implement' to pave the way toward a sustainable and just food system for us all. ROB GREENFIELD, author, Dude Making a Difference Steinman shows us we can confront the power of food retailers and create an inclusive, health promoting, and sustainable food system. ROD MacRAE, Associate Professor, York University JON STEINMAN is the producer and host of Deconstructing Dinner , the internationally syndicated radio show, podcast, streaming television series, and annual film festival. He was an elected director, from 2006-2016, of the Kootenay Co-op, Canada's largest independent retail consumer food co-op, serving as Board President from 2014-2016. He lives in Nelson, BC.
