What People are Saying About This

Dana Polan

“Rich and exciting … Aronowitz has in effect established the stakes and dimensions of the cultural studies movement today and its origins … Beyond the sharp, specific things this book has to say about cultural studies as a particular endeavor, Aronowitz is also offering a virtual history of the 20th century intellectual.”
