9780195343045: The Politics of Truth: Selected Writings of C. Wright Mills

C. Wright Mills was a radical public intellectual, a tough-talking, motorcycle-riding anarchist from Texas who taught sociology at Columbia University. Mills's three most influential books--The Power Elite, White Collar, and The Sociological Imagination--were originally published by OUP and are considered classics. The first collection of his writings to be published since 1963, The Politics of Truth contains 23 out-of-print and hard-to-find writings which show his growth from academic sociologist to an intellectual maestro in command of a mature style, a dissenter who sought to inspire the public to oppose the drift toward permanent war. Given the political deceptions of recent years, Mills's truth-telling is more relevant than ever. Seminal papers including "Letter to the New Left" appear alongside lesser known meditations such as "Are We Losing Our Sense of Belonging?" John Summers provides fresh insights in his introduction, which gives an overview of Mills's life and career. Summers has also written annotations that establish each piece's context and has drawn up a comprehensive bibliography of Mills's published and unpublished writings.

About the Author:


John H. Summers is the author of Every Fury on Earth and a Visiting Scholar at the Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life at Boston College.

Review:


"Choosing from the plethora of Mills's publications is no easy task. Summers has handled this chore wisely, rejecting a handy potpourri in favor of concentrating on what Mills had to say about a particular problem: the role at intellectuals should play in contemporary society."--The New Republic


"Many of these essays...retain their capacity to inform, instruct, and occasionally even incite.... There isnt a false note in the bunch."--The American Conservative


"John Summers has done yeoman work to give these essays and lectures of Mills the resurrection they richly deserve. The Politics of Truth shows beautifully why Mills was, and remains, inspiring: because he confronted big questions and showed that intellectual work was both an adventure and a moral imperative. A splendid book."--Todd Gitlin, Columbia University


"Half provocateur and half sociologist, C. Wright Mills cuts a wide swathe through the 1950s and early 60s. But it is now more than ever that we need this coruscating foe of cant and complacency. Mills addresses a world as old as today's war and tomorrow's industrialized passivity. Read him!"--Russell Jacoby, author of The Last Intellectuals


"The collection sheds much light on the man who wrote these classics. It stands as a valuable reference and supplement to the life work of a brilliant and daring American intellectual who died too young. Whether you agree or disagree with Mills, the work and the man can provide valuable lessons on what is truly important to us and challenge us to determine for ourselves where each of us should stand in our present epoch."--The Epoch Times

Descripción Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2008. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. Us.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Here are 23 essays, interviews, and public letters representing the best of C. Wright Mills s politics of truth. The first collection of Mills s writings to be published since 1963, these essays show how America s best known sociologist grew into a representative for dissenters in Europe, Latin America, and Europe, and was posthumously declared one of the three most influential figures in the international Left by the CIA. First published in Evergreen Review, Harper s, The Nation, Dissent, and New Left Review, these out-of-print and hard to find writings show Mills s growth from academic sociologist to intellectual maestro in command of a mature style, in search of an independent radical public to oppose the drift toward permanent war. Seminal papers including Letter to the New Left appear alongside notably prescient but lesser known meditations like Are We Losing Our Sense of Belonging? Historians interested in United States foreign policy and in the Latin American Left will find Mills s cogent and probing thoughts on these subjects, sociologists and engaged members of the citizenry who analyze the relationship between culture and politics will find no less incisive essays on these topics. John Summers provides both a new introduction to this book, including an overview of Mills life and career, as well as annotations that restore each piece s context.
