Reviews

Morton Schoolman is an accomplished, erudite, and wonderfully playful reader of both Whitman and Adorno. His insightful account of a 'democratic enlightenment' through encounters with images opens spaces for politics that we wouldn't otherwise see. I didn't want to put this provocative book down! -- Lori Jo Marso, author of * Politics with Beauvoir: Freedom in the Encounter * In a political climate marked by right-wing celebrations of misogyny, xenophobia, oligarchy, racism, militarism, and extractive capitalism, you might be skeptical of a book about 'the reconciliation image.' But Morton Schoolman, in a startling and effective admixture of Whitman's democratic ethos, Adorno's defense of a specifically aesthetic kind of critical reason, and contemporary films, contends that now is the time for new thinking about 'reconciliation.' This is an original, creative, provocative, rewarding, and timely book. -- Jane Bennett, author of * Influx and Efflux: Writing Up with Walt Whitman *
