“Trend’s knowledge base is very extensive. He does an excellent job of relating phenomenon from diverse political and cultural arenas. He analyzes the underlying causes of the current climate of political cynicism and cultural bankruptcy and suggests possibilities for change that transcend the respective impasses of both left-wing and right-wing politics.” Christine Tamblyn, University of California, Irvine

Following the work of a range of public intellectuals like Stanley Aronowitz, Henry Giroux, bell hooks, Chantal Mouffe, and Cornel West, Cultural Democracy argues for a “radical democracy” capable of subverting traditional divisions of “left” and “right”. In so doing, Trend suggests that solutions to contemporary cultural and political problems are not so far away as one might think. Their roots lie in the very democratic principles upon which the U.S.was founded, although many such principles need to be brought up to date and radicalized.
