About Stanley Aronowitz:
Stanley Aronowitz was a towering figure on the American Left over the past 60 years. From his early contributions to the Port Huron Statement (a manifesto of Students for a Democratic Society), to his weekly commentary for the US Guardian, to the publication of the provocative False Promises: The Shaping of American Working-Class Consciousness and beyond, Aronowitz remained engaged throughout his career as a militant union organizer, social and political theorist, and mentor to hundreds of graduate students. He was a distinguished professor at the Graduate Center and the School of Labor and Urban Studies, City University of New York.
