The Radical Writings of Jack Nusan Porter (Paperback): Jack Nusan Porter The Radical Writings of Jack Nusan Porter (Paperback)
Jack Nusan Porter
R488 R406 Discovery Miles 4 060 Save R82 (17%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Jack Nusan Porter's writings date back to 1966, during the height of the Vietnam War. He describes the anguished struggle against war, racism, and poverty, as well as the radical groups involved-Jewish socialists, radical Zionists, radical Jews, Rabbi Meir Kahane and the Jewish Defense League, hippies, liberals, and conservatives alike. In addition, the anti-Zionist, anti-Israel, anti-Semitic and revolutionary terrorism of the times are all vividly described. Here, Porter draws from the past in order to explain the present, walking the precarious bridge between allegiance to Israel and the Jewish people and the universal rights of all people. This collection of old and new essays combines theory, sociology, film studies, literary criticism, post-modern thought, and politics to understand our present situation.

The Genocidal Mind - Sociological and Sexual Perspectives (Paperback, New): Jack Nusan Porter The Genocidal Mind - Sociological and Sexual Perspectives (Paperback, New)
Jack Nusan Porter; Foreword by Antony Polonsky
R1,017 Discovery Miles 10 170 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

The Genocidal Mind offers unique and under-explored analyses of the Holocaust and the phenomenon of 20th century genocide within a sociological framework. With reference to contemporary scholarly work and using the latest in social structural, psychoanalytical, post-modern, chaos, and uncertainty theory, Dr. Porter attempts to explain why people dehumanize and kill other innocent people. The author also probes the deviant, sexual side of the Nazi party, including the mind of Adolf Hitler.

Is Sociology Dead? - Social Theory and Social Praxis in a Post-Modern Age (Paperback): Jack Nusan Porter Is Sociology Dead? - Social Theory and Social Praxis in a Post-Modern Age (Paperback)
Jack Nusan Porter
R1,027 Discovery Miles 10 270 Out of stock

Sociology was in serious trouble in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Harvard University was down to only 67 students majoring in sociology in 1992. Yale's department faced a 40% cut in faculty and near extinction. In the last decade, Washington University (St. Louis, MO) and the University of Rochester shut down their departments. George Washington University (Washington, D.C.) regrouped in order to stave off further cuts. However, in the past decade, sociology has surged back and become more important than ever to policy makers and pundits. Why? Is Sociology Dead? covers three areas of Dr. Jack Nusan Porter's work: the role of sociological theory in society; the image of sociology in the media; and what he calls the "creative praxis," (the application of social theory to real life problems). The theoretical section of the book covers such areas as conflict theory; situational and small group theory; and what could be termed as post-9/11 approaches as chaos, postmodern, and rational choice theory that address the questions of random murder, terrorism, and genocide. The second section deals with an overview of sociology's image in the U.S. media and covers in detail how sociology was treated in radical textbooks in the 1960s. The final section applies new theoretical approaches to a host of contemporary political, business, technological, and urban issues.
