Simon & Schuster Inc, New York: 1954. h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition. 
In this short, clear statement of his own personal philosophy of life, Mr. Baruch discusses deep and troubling questions which concern every American. He defines the central challnge of our time as the need for freedom from the chills and fevers of war, inflation, depression and political servitude which have returned again and again to trouble mankind throughout all history. He gives a seven-pont program of adjustments which he believes will protect out national security, and he explains how, in politics, in economics, in our way of living and in education, we can create new opportunities and keep old freedoms. These lectures were originally given at the Bernard M. Baruch School of Business and Public Administration of the The City College of New York.

13 BEHLER, ERNST; TAUBENECK, STEVEN (AFTERWORD). Confrontations: Derrida / Heidegger / Nietzsche.
Stanford University Press, Stanford: 1991. 0804719454 / 9780804719452 First English Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
Nietsche is generally agreed to be one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century - but there is considerable disagreement about just what his significance is. Because a confrontation with Heidegger is central to Derrida's writings ( and because this confrontation is always bound up with Nietzsche), this book not only gives an account of the "New Nietzsche," but also provides a genealogy of Derrida's own writings. The final chapter sets deconstruction against hermeneutics, and a new Afterword traces Nietzsche's reception in the English-speaking world. Translated into English from the German by Steven Taubeneck. Includes an Index.
