Fernando Henrique Cardoso: Reinventing Democracy in Brazil. Boulder: Lynne Rienner, 1999. Updates to this book are available here. Portuguese edition with new material covering the entire eight years of Cardoso's administration: Fernando Henrique Cardoso e a reconstrução de democracia no Brasil, São Paulo: Saraiva, 2002. Some highlights are available online from Brazzil magazine.
An intellectual and political biography of the first professional sociologist to become President of his nation. Cardoso pioneered in the sociology of development, then became a leader of Brazil's transition from military rule to democracy. His unexpected success as finance minister in ending the nation's chronic inflation led to his election to the Presidency. As President he has led Brazil's integration into the global economy. The book had the misfortune to come out just after Brazil's currency collapse in January, 1999, but Brazil's subsequent recovery has largely vindicated Cardoso's economic policies which are defended in the book. Reviewed in Foreign Affairs and in Revista Epoca. and in the Journal of Latin American Studies, volume 24, 2002, pp 193-194. I have also posted some reviews by students at Randolph-Macon College who used the book in a course. There is also a review on Amazon.com.
Linus Pauling: A Life in Science and Politics (with Ben Goertzel, Mildred Goertzel and Victor Goertzel). New York: Basic Books, 1995. Also published in Japanese and Chinese (if anyone knows of a reference to the Chinese publication, please let me know). An essay based on this project is available here. The Appendix on Pauling's Rorschach is also available here.
Linus Pauling is famous for three quite different things: revolutionizing chemical theory, opposing nuclear bomb testing, and advocating Vitamin C as a treatment for the common cold and cancer. This biography was begun by my parents, Mildred and Victor Goertzel. I had to seek the help of my mathematician son, Ben Goertzel, to complete it. Ben understood Pauling's chemistry, my parents focused on his childhood and his anti-war activism, while I was more interested in his Vitamin C advocacy. There is a review of this book and some other Pauling biographies in the New York Times Book Review.
Turncoats and True Believers: The Dynamics of Political Belief and Disillusionment. Buffalo: Prometheus Press, 1992. The first, autobiographical, chapter is available here.
This book is about why people believe what they do and, especially, why they sometimes abandon strongly held beliefs. It covers people as diverse as Fidel Castro, Woodrow Wilson, Bertrand Russell, Germaine Greer, Mahatma Gandhi, Abbie Hoffman and Ayn Rand. There is a summary and review on Amazon.
Sociology: Class, Consciousness and Contradictions (with Albert Szymanski). New York: D. VanNostrand, 1979.
This is an introduction to sociology from a Marxist perspective. It reflected the views of the first author, Albert Szymanski, a close friend of mine who committed suicide when the world failed to follow his visions. The book is out of date in many respects (it portrays the Soviet Union as the vanguard of the future), but Chapter Two, "Foundations of Radical Sociology," is still used in college courses and is available online.
Three Hundred Eminent Personalities: A Psychosocial Analysis of the Famous (with Mildred Goertzel and Victor Goertzel). San Francisco: Jossey-Bass, 1978.
This was a sequel to my parents' classic Cradles of Eminence, a study of the childhoods of eminent people. It showed that eminent people were often unhappy and poorly adjusted as children, and provided comfort to many parents of children with similar problems. The Three Hundred added more cases and some statistical analysis.
Political Society. Chicago: Rand McNally, 1976. An adaptation of the first chapter, "Theoretical Models in Political Sociology," is available online.
A textbook for the Political Sociology course, contrasting Marxist, pluralist and elite theory approaches.
