The Signature of Power

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-signature-of-power-1...
Advanced industrial societies are becoming aware of the impact of what they do to the physical and biological environment, and also what that environment does to individuals. In The Signature of Power, Harold D. Lasswell examines the symbolic use people make of their surroundings and the complexity of the way they interpret an altered environment. Transformed habitats can change experiences and behaviors. All people seek to maximize their preferred events, such as power and wealth, when they use the environment-be it through glass skyscrapers or Gothic estates. In all cases, physical structures give expression to the perspectives of influential individuals and groups. This volume considers the complex interplay between the material and the symbolic. Physical changes introduced for political purposes by architects, planners, and engineers are guided by the perspectives of designers. These and other interactions in human society are simultaneous acts of communication and collaboration. Regardless of whether physical resources are used to transmit messages, such interactions nevertheless have a degree of communicative impact. Physical structures may be profoundly affected by the purposes, assumptions, and identities of those people who plan or change them. Environmental design, says Lasswell, is an instrument of political power.

Desolation and Enlightenment

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/desolation-and-enlightenmen...
During and especially after the Second World War, a group of leading scholars who had been perilously close to the war's devastation joined others fortunate enough to have been protected by distance in an effort to redefine and reinvigorate Western liberal ideals for a radically new age. Treating evil as an analytical category, they sought to discover the sources of twentieth-century horror and the potentialities of the modern state in the wake of western desolation. In the process, they devised strikingly new ways to understand politics, sociology and history that reverberate still. In this major intellectual history, Ira Katznelson examines the works of Hannah Arendt, Robert Dahl, Richard Hofstadter, Harold Lasswell, Charles Lindblom, Karl Polanyi, and David Truman, detailing their engagement with the larger project of reclaiming the West's moral bearing. In light of their epoch's calamities these intellectuals insisted that the tradition of Enlightenment thought required a new realism, a good deal of renovation, and much recommitment. This array of historians, political philosophers, and social scientists understood that a simple reassertion of liberal modernism had been made radically insufficient by the enormities and moral catastrophes of war, totalitarianism, and holocaust. Confronting their period's dashed hopes for reason and knowledge, they asked not just whether the Enlightenment should define modernity, but which Enlightenment we should wish to have. Decades later, in the midst of a new type of war and reanimated discussions of the concept of evil, we share no small stake in assessing their successes and limitations.

The Future of the International Legal Order, Volume 4: The Structure of the International Environment

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-future-of-the-internati...
The issues of conflict management treated in this volume are relatively recent consequences of the scientific and technological revolution, and are in significant respects unprecedented in man's history: food distribution, population, ocean resources, air and water pollution. Such new global problems cannot be adequately solved except by international effort-effort that requires adjustments in the present international system. What adjustments arc practicable, and at least minimally necessary, are assessed by seventeen lawyers and specialists in international affairs. They approach the subject from two perspectives: the international legal aspects of man in his environment; and the institutions, agencies, and movements that must be further adapted to the rapidly changing needs of mankind. Contributors: Harold Lasswell, Mary Ellen Caldwell, Dennis Livingston, Howard J. and Rita F. Taubenfeld, L.F.E. Goldie. Leon Gordenker, John Carey, Hans Baade, Gidon Gotlieb, Richard B. Lillich, Joseph Nye, Donald McNemar, James Patrick Sewell, Gerald F. Sumida, Harold and Margaret Sprout.
