The idea of a “deep state” has been around for a long time, going back at least as far as the imperium in imperio (“government within the government”) of ancient Rome and demonstrated in recent times—even to this day—in such places as Egypt, Turkey, Pakistan, and Iran. As applied to the United States, the notion was first explored in detail by sociologist C. Wright Mills, who identified “deep states” in the Pentagon, the military-industrial complex, and Wall Street. The modern deep state has been associated with “fringe right” conspiracy theorists who hold that a cadre of career government employees—civil servants, bureaucratic administrators—have covertly coordinated to shape state policy by working around or beneath the elected government. Within the last two years, this belief in the deep state graduated from unorganized fringe groups to the so-called Alt-right, members of which formed an influential faction of supporters during the presidential campaign of Donald Trump, and who are today represented among the inner circle of the Trump presidency. Today, clearly, the deep state cannot be dismissed as the stock-in-trade of talk radio fantasy. In fact, the deep state is real—but its reality is not what the Trump administration believes it to be. There is an American shadow government. It is government by lobby and lobbyist. The deep state of the professional influencers is closely connected to both the elected government and the “permanent bureaucratic structure” —that is the unelected government. This real deep state coexists with the elected and unelected governments, a relationship that is part symbiotic, part parasitic, and often downright malignant. Deep State Reality, driven neither by partisan affiliation nor ideological orientation, presents an anatomy of America’s shadow government that makes up the true substance of an American deep state.

In its attempt to come to grips with the nature of the human mind idealism employs such terms as "pure self," "transcendental apperception," "pure con sciousness" and so on. What do these terms mean? What do they refer to? Pro visionally, at least, the following answer could be satisfying: such and similar expressions are purported to capture a very special quality of human mind, a quality due to which man is not simply a part of nature, but a being capable of knowing and acting according to principles governing the spiritual realm. In the first chapter of the present study the author attempts to bring the idea of "pure Ego" down to earth. By analyzing Kant's concept of pure appercep tion - the ancestor of all similar notions in the history of modern and contem porary idealism - the author concludes that certain functions and capacities attributed to pure apperception by Kant himself imply the rejection of the idealistic framework and the necessity to "naturalize" the idea of pure self. In other words - and Kant's claims to the contrary notwithstanding - pure ap perception cannot be conceived as superimposed upon man viewed as a part of nature, as a feeling and a sensing being. The referent, as it were, of the expres sion "pure self' turns out to be something much more familiar to us - a human organism, with all its needs, drives and dispositions.

The Anatomy of National Fantasy

Hawthorne, Utopia, and Everyday Life

Examining the complex relationships between the political, popular, sexual, and textual interests of Nathaniel Hawthorne's work, Lauren Berlant argues that Hawthorne mounted a sophisticated challenge to America's collective fantasy of national unity. She shows how Hawthorne's idea of citizenship emerged from an attempt to adjudicate among the official and the popular, the national and the local, the collective and the individual, utopia and history. At the core of Berlant's work is a three-part study of The Scarlet Letter, analyzing the modes and effects of national identity that characterize the narrator's representation of Puritan culture and his construction of the novel's political present tense. This analysis emerges from an introductory chapter on American citizenship in the 1850s and a following chapter on national fantasy, ranging from Hawthorne's early work "Alice Doane's Appeal" to the Statue of Liberty. In her conclusion, Berlant suggests that Hawthorne views everyday life and local political identities as alternate routes to the revitalization of the political and utopian promises of modern national life.

Anatomy of the Niger Delta Crisis provides deep insights into the complex and varied interests that are at play in the Niger Delta. The nine treatises in this book identify the primary motivations and major players in the imbroglio surrounding the international oil market. The bold academic discourses, to a large extent, blame British imperialism, global capitalism, and Nigeria's political elites for the situation in the Niger Delta, which has a far-reaching global effect.

From the thinning of the Arctic sea ice to the invasion of the mosquito-borne West Nile virus, State of the World 2001 shows how the economic boom of the last decade has damaged natural systems. The increasingly visible evidence of environmental deterioration is only the tip of a much more dangerous problem: the growing inequities in wealth and income between countries and within countries, inequities that will generate enormous social unrest and pressure for change.
