Paperback (October 1996)
Columbia Univ Pr; ISBN: 023110331X
Drawn from more than sixty years of commentary in America's most
influential literary and cultural journal, A Partisan Century
collects some of the greatest political essays published in Partisan
Review since its founding in 1934.
A virtual "who's who" of American and European intellectual culture
in the past half century, the brilliantly eclectic roster of contributions
includes George Orwell's "London Letters," written when invasion
by Nazi Germany seemed imminent, Susan Sontag's 1964 essay "Notes
on Camp," and Steven Marcus's "Soft Totalitarianism," on the effects
of political correctness.
Consistently challenging the tide of trendy political opinion,
the writings in A Partisan Century are a barometer of the
shifting currents of culture and politics in this century.
