The Long March: How the Cultural Revolution of the 1960s Changed America.
Ridgley, Stanley K.
Texas Education Review, v1 n2 p21-27 Sum 2000
Reviews the modern academy's intellectual foundations, rooted in Marcuse's, Ginsburg's, Kerouac's, and Mailer's ideas. Highlights Kimball's new book on the 1960s cultural revolution. Questions the notion that the 1960s were about peace, love, compassion, and diversity, revealing deep connections between modern political correctness and Marcusian beliefs that rights like free speech are provisional and should be withheld from the bourgeois.
