Book Description
Since the 1930s, the friendly glow of a neon motel "vacancy" sign has signaled a long anticipated break for the road weary motorist. The essential aim of the motel is to provide convenient, comfortable and affordable accommodation for exhausted travelers. Yet, despite their image as places of wholesome reliability, run by proprietors of strong moral fiber -- with a courtesy bible in each room -- motels have earned a reputation as the venue of choice for people seeking a discreet rendezvous. With advertisements declaring the availability of "hourly rates," J. Edgar Hoover, in 1940, labeled motels as "dens of vice and corruption." In Postcard Fictions, Andrew Valko captures this seamier side of motel life in vivid detail. This series of paintings, hyper realistic images of motels glow and beckon eerily from the side of...

Foucault and Political Reason: Liberalism, Neo-Liberalism, and Rationalities of Government
Andrew Barry (Editor)
0226038262
June 1996
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Despite the enormous influence of Michel Foucault in gender studies, social theory, and cultural studies, his work has been relatively neglected in the study of politics. Although he never published a book on the state, in the late 1970s Foucault examined the technologies of power used to regulate society and the ingenious recasting of power and agency that he saw as both consequence and condition of their operation.

These twelve essays provide a critical introduction to Foucault's work on politics, exploring its relevance to past and current thinking about liberal and neo-liberal forms of government. Moving away from the great texts of liberal political philosophy, this book looks closely at the technical means with which the ideals of liberal political rationalities have been put into practice in such areas as...

From Booklist
Gr. 1-3. When his smart, messy older brother, Wayne, goes to science camp, Jeff grabs the chance to tidy up their room, and he throws away the yucky, moldy lunch containers under Wayne's bed. Then Jeff discovers that Wayne was growing the mold for a science project, so he calls on his friend Layla to help him decipher Wayne's notes, search the Internet, and work out how to use all kinds of foods to grow all kinds of mold. "Did you know?" boxes on the double-page spreads present information about molds--where they come from, how they form, why they smell, which are harmful--but this small picture book in the Science Solves It! series is more than a purposive fictional package for facts. The pictures show the kids dealing with the slime and mess, and the end of the story is a real surprise that evolves naturally from farce...
