David Jenemann, "Adorno in America"
Univ Of Minnesota Press | ISBN: 0816648085 | 2007 | PDF | 281 pages | 1,69 mb
For those inclined to dismiss Adorno’s take on America as the uncomprehending condescension of a mandarin elitist, David Jenemann’s splendid new book will come as a rude awakening. Exploiting a wealth of new sources, he persuasively shows the depth of Adorno’s engagement with the culture industry and the complexity of his reaction to it. —Martin Jay, Sidney Hellman Ehrman Professor of History, University of California, Berkeley
