Reunion Without Compromise


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

The author presents a study of the political leadership of the Southern states during the three decisive years immediately after the American Civil War. This era was crucial - it was a moment when the terms and shape of the post-war sectional settlement were being deliberated and determined. The process of reunification, and whether it would be carried out smoothly, depended on the policy pursued by the Federal government towards the leaders of the Confederacy, as well as on the Southerners' response to whatever course was adopted.--adapted from publisher's description.

Art Without Compromise


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Combining 24 years of research and insight from her columns in Communication Arts magazine, artist, educator, and writer Wendy Richmond challenges artists to investigate their work through multiple lenses in her newest book, Art Without Compromise*. Her commentaries, exercises, and wide-ranging references to contemporary thinkers will inspire artists to change the way they think about their creative landscape, from personal goals to cultural influences to technological realities. Her insights about major cultural figures, from Roland Barthes to Susan Sontag to Walker Evans, introduce their philosophies into the context of contemporary art making. Like a Malcolm Gladwell for artists, Richmond helps artists to look closely at what they see every day--in their own art making and in the world around them. In the process, she helps artists to develop an uncompromising commitment to finding and protecting their own unique process for making their strongest and most relevant art. This thought-provoking and inspirational book covers such topics as: developing a solid creative process through “Visual Reflection Notebooks” and “Bring Play to Work”; understanding the artist’s unique identity in relation to the larger culture; building systems of support and collaboration; explaining how an artist’s needs and passions can lead to innovation and authenticity; using language to inspire visual creativity; responding to the Internet and changing concepts of what is public and private; and accepting digression as a creative necessity. Through the exercises and techniques outlined in Art Without Compromise*, the reader will develop new confidence to pursue individual goals and inspiration to explore new paths, along with motivation to overcome creative blocks. With a revised understanding of the relevance in their own work within the sphere of contemporary culture, the artist will come away with a clearer perspective on his or her past and future work and a critical eye for personal authenticity.

Without Compromise


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

A collection of groundbreaking investigations by Wayne Barrett, the intrepid, muckraking Village Voice journalist who exposed corruption in New York City and beyond. With piercing moral clarity and exacting rigor, Wayne Barrett tracked political corruption in the pages of the Village Voice fact by fact, document by document for 40 years. The first to report on the scams and crooked deals that fueled the rise of Donald Trump in 1979, Barrett went on to expose the shady dealings of small-time slum lords and powerful New York City politicians alike, from Ed Koch to Rudy Giuliani to Michael Bloomberg. Without Compromise is the first anthology of Barrett's investigative work, accompanied by essays from colleagues and those he trained. In an age of lies, fog, and propaganda, when the profession of journalism is degraded by the White House and the industry is under financial threat, Barrett reminds us that facts, when clearly accumulated, are our best defense of democracy.

The Spirit Of Compromise


Available: macOS, Windows, Android, Tablet

Why compromise is essential for effective government and why it is missing in politics today To govern in a democracy, political leaders have to compromise. When they do not, the result is political paralysis—dramatically demonstrated by the gridlock in Congress in recent years. In The Spirit of Compromise, eminent political thinkers Amy Gutmann and Dennis Thompson show why compromise is so important, what stands in the way of achieving it, and how citizens can make defensible compromises more likely. They urge politicians to focus less on campaigning and more on governing. In a new preface, the authors reflect on the state of compromise in Congress since the book's initial publication. Calling for greater cooperation in contemporary politics, The Spirit of Compromise will interest everyone who cares about making government work better for the good of all.
