Faculty Book: Stanley Aronowitz

Stanley Aronowitz

Left Turn: Forging a New Political Future (Radical Imagination Series, Henry A. Giroux and Stanley Aronowitz, editors Paradigm Publishers, 2006)

bookcover Building a new platform for change, prominent social critic Stanley Aronowitz diagnoses America’s crisis of democracy and the dangers of the new authoritarianism. Aronowitz draws on his vast knowledge of history and political theory and from currents of political change around the globe, from the traditions of the European left to the newest political trends in Latin America that have challenged the “death of socialism.” Demonstrating why Democrats lose when they cling to centrism and compromise their core values, this book shows us what a new left party in America would look like in an era of globalization, terrorism, and a crisis of public confidence in government. Stanley Aronowitz is a professor of sociology at the Graduate Center.
