Summary
"Literary Integrity and Political Action is the story of writer James T. Farrell's role in the culture wars of 1930s America. Farrell's journey was marked with important encounters with the likes of Malcolm Cowley, Edmund Wilson, Granville Hicks, Michael Gold, Mary McCarthy, Sidney Hook, Max Eastman, Philip Rahv, Kenneth Burke, and many others caught up in the debate over the Marxist intellectual tradition." "Written for academics and casual readers alike, this book will be of particular interest to those caught up in the recent efforts of the academic Left to expose the abuses of power inherent to, and the ultimate failure of, late capitalism."--Jacket
