From the Back Cover
"This is a first-rate contribution to the growing body of research on the phenomenon of public intellectuals. It clearly ranks high in a cohort of volumes that include Public Intellectuals: An Endangered Species? and The Public Intellectual and the Culture of Hope. Beyond appealing to public intellectuals, these essays are a rich interdisciplinary mix that will be of interest to scholars across a wide variety of fields in the social sciences and humanities." —Greg Russell, University of Oklahoma
What is a public intellectual? Where are they to be found? What accounts for the widely heard lament today that public intellectuals are decreasingly few in number or, worse, increasingly irrelevant? In Public Intellectuals in the Global Arena, Michael C. Desch has gathered a group of distinguished public thinkers to offer a timely and far-reaching reassessment of the role of public intellectuals in a variety of Western and non-Western settings. The contributors delineate the centrality of historical consciousness, philosophical self-understanding, and ethical imperatives for anyone who presumes to speak the truth to power or otherwise enrich our intellectual marketplace of ideas.
Contributors include: Michael C. Desch, Jeremi Suri, Andrew J. Bacevich, Willy Lam, Enrique Krauze, Ahmad S. Moussalli, Patrick Baert, J. Bradford DeLong, Paul Horwitz, Kenneth R. Miller, Gilles Andréani, Mark Lilla, Michael Zuckert, Patrick J. Deneen, and Vittorio Hösle
Michael C. Desch is professor of political science at the University of Notre Dame and Director of the Notre Dame International Security Center.
