"The book consists of profiles of 15 American intellectuals of the 1950s who created the groundwork for new forms of critical discourse. . . . Among these 'academic outlaws' are C. Wright Mills, Hannah Arendt, Erich Fromm, Lewis Mumford, Rachel Carson and Margaret Mead, all whom occupied disciplinary borderlands, questioned the terms of mass culture and championed intellectual independence and political engagement. . . . The profiles are succinct, colorful and instructive. The book testifies persuasively to the power cultural myths have to shape public life and the role demythologizers can play in reawakening critical consciousness."--"Washington Post Book World
