Entertaining Satan Witchcraft and the Culture of Early New England by John Putnam Demos

Entertaining Satan Witchcraft and the Culture of Early New England by John Putnam Demos

In the first edition of the Bancroft Prize-winning Entertaining Satan, John Putnam Demos presented an entirely new perspective on American witchcraft. By investigating the surviving historical documents of over a hundred actual witchcraft cases, he vividly recreated the world of New England during the witchcraft trials and brought to light fascinating information on the role of witchcraft in early American culture. Now Demos has revisited his original work and updated it to illustrate why these early Americans' strange views on witchcraft still matter to us today. He provides a new preface that puts forth a broader overview of witchcraft and looks at its place around the world–from ancient times right up to the present.

Herbert Putnam A 1903 Trip to Europe

Herbert Putnam A 1903 Trip to Europe

Review ...presents a snapshot of the mind of Librarian of Congress and ALA President Herbert Putnam (1861-1955) through the letters he wrote to his wife and daughters while on a trip through Great Britain, Holland, Germany, Scandinavia, and Russia. He dines and plays golf with Andrew Carnegie, who warns that 'he is in retreat and doesn't want to talk libraries or hear about libraries.' Extensively annotated by Knowlton, the correspondence reflects Putnam's bibliographic interests and cultural tastes, as well as the sights and society of turn-of-the-century Europe.

 Undoing the Demos

Undoing the Demos

Neoliberal rationality -- ubiquitous today in statecraft and the workplace, in jurisprudence, education, and culture -- remakes everything and everyone in the image of homo oeconomicus. What happens when this rationality transposes the constituent elements of democracy into an economic register? In Undoing the Demos, Wendy Brown explains how democracy itself is imperiled. The demos disintegrates into bits of human capital; concerns with justice bow to the mandates of growth rates, credit ratings, and investment climates; liberty submits to the imperative of human capital appreciation; equality dissolves into market competition; and popular sovereignty grows incoherent. Liberal democratic practices may not survive these transformations. Radical democratic dreams may not either. In an original and compelling argument, Brown explains how and why neoliberal reason undoes the political form and political imaginary it falsely promises to secure and reinvigorate. Through meticulous analyses of neoliberalized law, political practices, governance, and education, she charts the new common sense. Undoing the Demos makes clear that for democracy to have a future, it must become an object of struggle and rethinking.
