Sphere Of Influence Winston Churchill
1,180 wordsThe Truman Doctrines Impact in Cold War Strategy By the middle of the twentieth century's fifth decade, the world had been jolted by two catastrophic wars; a seven- year economic disaster and the recognition that weapons of mass destruction existed. Where blood had been spilled through hand to hand combat dating back to trench warfare, the realization that thirty years hence, blood bones and the complete human identity could be vaporized helped create a climate of distrust between former allies....

Lukacs Describes Hitler Decisions Of A Few People Churchill
1,048 wordsIn reviewing John Lukacs, The Duel, I noticed that the author has other intentions in mind besides the facts. Lukacs gives a very precise account of the actualy events during those eighty days but in my opinion he wants the reader to grab the bigger concepts. One of these concepts is that Lukacs wants the reader to honestly consider just how close the Allies came to losing the war. Another of these notions is the idea that the main difference between Churchill and Hitler concerned nationalism ve...

American Psycho Commodity Fetishism And Social Reification
1,046 words... ion as I saw it, colossal and jagged (360) With its fragmented formal style and its endless citations of brands by which everything and everyone is identified characters almost absent beneath their Armani suits, and beyond conversations about restaurants, American Psycho may well be read as description of a society that has arrived at the conclusion of a Marxist logic of commodity fetishism as developed by a logic of social reification.

Reification And Heller Theory Of Needs In Marx
1,485 words1. A little over a decade after the "collapse of Communism", it might appear that Marxist theory has been relegated to little more than an historical or even archeological artefact with little relevance to or influence over an ever encroaching and expanding, global ising capitalism. Socialism "proper", as a state economic model and ideology seems to have been banished to the margins of the world scene. The disastrous results in terms of the dictatorships and totalitarianism that have ensued wher...

Oxford Basil Blackwell Class Consciousness
1,525 words... power and size. The worker becomes an ever cheaper commodity the more commodities he creates Labour produces not only commodities: it produces itself and the worker as a commodity - and this at the same rate at which it produces commodities in general (Marx, 1997: 60 - 62). This process has the direct effect of alienating the labourer from the object in the capacity of the product of his labour: The worker puts his life into the object; but now his life no longer belongs to him but to the ob...

The Causes Of Cold War Post Revisionist
1,521 wordsThis is from AP history and bear with me because some of the stuff got a little screwed up in transit. : -) Dwight D. Eisenhower once said, Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signified, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold but not clothed. There was never a war that this idea can be more correct applied to than the Cold War. According to noted author and Cold War historian Walter Lippman, the Cold War can be defined...

Critique Of Marxian Economics
1,228 wordsJon Elster concluded his Making Sense of Marx with the claim that It is not possible today, morally or intellectually, to be a Marxist in the traditional sense (1985, p. 531). Acceptance of this statement depends, of course, on what is meant by traditional Marxism. Elster makes it clear that what he means by traditional Marxism is that intellectually bankrupt and non-scientific economic theory associated with the labor theory of value, the theory of the falling rate of profit, and the most impor...
