Long March by Roger Kimball
Book DescriptionIn The Long March, Roger Kimball, the author of Tenured Radicals, shows how the "cultural revolution" of the 1960s and '70s took hold in America, lodging in our hearts and minds, and affecting our innermost assumptions about what counts as the good life. Kimball believes that the counterculture transformed high culture as well as our everyday life in terms of attitudes toward self and country, sex and drugs, and manners and morality. Believing that this dramatic change "cannot be understood apart from the seductive personalities who articulated its goals," he intersperses his argument with incisive portraits of the life and thought of Allen Ginsberg, Norman Mailer, Timothy Leary, Susan Sontag, Eldridge Cleaver and other "cultural revolutionaries" who made their mark. For all that has been written about the counterculture, until now there has not been a chronicle of how this revolutionary movement succeeded and how its ideas helped provoke today's "culture wars." The Long March fills this gap with a compelling and well-informed narrative that is sure to provoke discussion and debate.

Ideas Have Consequences, Paperback (November 2013)
Originally published in 1948, at the height of post-World War II optimism and confidence in collective security, this title uses "words hard as cannonballs" to present an unsparing diagnosis of the ills of the modern age. It argues that the decline of Western civilization resulted from the rising acceptance of relativism over absolute reality.
Future Tense, Hardback (October 2012)View all books by Roger Kimball
Many observers assume that our culture is living through one of those "world historical moments" that Hegel talked about: a plastic moment when many of the traditional assumptions about the shape and future of the culture are suddenly in play. In this title, each essay writer steps back to reflect on where we are as a culture.
