Contested Truths by Daniel T. Rodgers
Book DescriptionContention, argument, and power have always been the tradition in American political talk. The author argues that any country that began in a revolution was bound to have this history. But the language of argument uses particular words with particular, sometimes shifting meanings, and to know what they are and what they meant over time is a critical contribution to political history. It is true that politicians may act as though they are part of no particular ideological tradition, but history shows that, more often that not, they use an understood meaning to enhance their actions.

Books By Author Daniel T. Rodgers
Work Ethic in Industrial America 1850-1920, Paperback (August 2014)
The phrase "a strong work ethic" conjures images of hard-driving employees working diligently for long hours. But where did this ideal come from, and how has it been buffeted by changes in work itself? This book shows how the new work culture permeated society, including literature, politics, the emerging feminist movement, and the labor movement.
Cultures in Motion, Hardback (January 2014)
Offers conceptual vocabularies for understanding how cultures have trespassed across geography and social space. This title challenges the premise of fixed, stable cultural systems by showing that cultural practices have always been moving, crossing borders and locations with often surprising effect.
Age of Fracture, Paperback (September 2012)
Shows how the collective purposes and meanings that had framed social debate became unhinged and uncertain. This title offers a reinterpretation of the ways in which the decades surrounding the 1980s changed America. It explains how structures of power came to seem less important than market choice and fluid selves.
Atlantic Crossings, Paperback (April 2000)» View all books by Daniel T. Rodgers
This text is an account of the vibrant international network that the American socio-political reformers constructed - so often obscured by notions of American exceptionalism - and of its profound impact on the USA from the 1870s through to 1945.
