Description - The New Left and the 1960s by Herbert Marcuse
Foundations of the New Left is the third volume of Herbert Marcuse's collected papers. In 1964, Marcuse published a major study of advanced industrial society, One Dimensional Man , which was an important influence on the young radicals who formed the New Left. Marcuse embodied many of the defining political impulses of the New Left in his thought and politics - hence a younger generation of political looked up to him for theoretical and political guidance. The new material collected in this and accompanying volumes provides a rich and deep grasp of the era and the role of Marcuse in the theoretical and political dramas of the day. This volume contains articles, letters, talks and interviews including, On the New Left , a transcription of the 1968 talk at the twentieth anniversary of the The Guardian newspaper; Reflections on the French Revolution which contain Marcuse's comments on the May 1968 French student and worker uprising; Liberation from the Affluent Society which presents Marcuse's contribution to a 1967 Dialectics of Liberations conference; and USA: Questions of Organization and the Revolutionary Subject , a translation of a 1970 conversation between Marcuse and German w
