Description
Nonfiction. Politics. Literary Criticism. WHAT ARE INTELLECTUALS GOOD FOR? appraises a large gallery of twentieth-century intellectuals, including Randolph Bourne, Dwight Macdonald, Lionel Trilling, Irving Howe, Isaiah Berlin, William F. Buckley Jr., Allan Bloom, Richard Rorty, Stanley Fish, Christopher Lasch, Edward Said, Ellen Willis, and Christopher Hitchens. It also includes two essays on intellectuals and politics and concludes with one on moral consequences of our species cyber-evolution. George Scialabba, a columnist for the Boston Globe and contributor to the Boston Review, Dissent, the American Prospect, and the Nation, is admired by a circle of discerning readers. WHAT ARE INTELLECTUALS GOOD FOR?, his second essay collection, brings his voice to a larger audience. Scott McLemee, the Intellectual Affairs columnist of InsideHigherEd, has contributed a foreword.

display_descriptionEssays and reviews concentrating on politics, economics, sociology and culture. When George's What Are Intellectuals Good For? appeared it was greeted by an NPR review that sang the book's praises. Pressed Wafer was totally unprepared for the blizzard of orders that came from Amazon. We hustled out and purchased the George Scialabba Two Wheeler to cart the books to the Post Office! The current cliché is that America has no public intellectuals. Every sentence George writes gives the lie to this bit of lazy journalese.
