American History


Daniel Bell and the Decline of Intellectual Radicalism
Social Theory and Political Reconciliation in the 1940s

Howard Brick

History of American Thought and Culture
Paul S. Boyer, Series Editor

“Brick takes seriously the intellectual and political trajectory of Daniel Bell, one of the main targets of left-intellectuals since his vastly influential End of Ideology of 1960. . . . Brick’s [work] is exemplary in skillfully moving between texts and contexts. Besides that, it illuminates an important episode in the recent history of American radicalism.”
—Richard H. King, Journal of American Studies
