Editorial Reviews

Review

«This book represents the most important genealogy of the culture wars controversy to date. Scatamburlo's treatment of political correctness is wide-ranging and her analysis lucid and fearless. This is one of the most comprehensive accounts of the rise of new right that is currently available. Scatamburlo has fashioned a book that is indispensable for scholars, educators, and activists interested in creating pedagogies of liberation and communities of risk and solidarity.» (Peter McLaren, Professor, Graduate School of Education, UCLA, Author of 'Critical Pedagogy and Predatory Culture' and 'Revolutionary Multiculturalism: Pedagogies of Dissent for the New Millennium')
«Scatamburlo takes a critical look at dominant trends in leftist theory and politics with the intent of moving beyond political correctness, identity politics, the postmodern descent into discourse, and liberal forms of multiculturalism in order to preserve what she sees as more emancipatory and progressive theoretical and political perspectives. Since the struggle over P.C. continues unabated and because one expects that the culture wars will continue well into the next millennium, this is an extremely timely and provocative study that addresses an issue of utmost importance. For those who want to know what the P.C. controversy is all about, this is the book.» (Douglas Kellner, Professor of Philosophy University of Texas, Austin, From the 'Preface')

Format: Paperback
A protracted ad hominem attack on conservatives who are often portrayed as guilty by association. Favorably reviewed above by two authors who are favorably reviewed by Scatamburlo.
