    • Not the most soul quickening read on the shelf, but Brick manages an extremely subtle reading of 20th-C American intellectual history and social science that goes by other than the usual roads. Thought experiment: capitalism doesn't exist as we so casually assume. The concept has embedded itself so thoroughly in our discourse, that we forget an entire tradition of thinkers on the left who saw the emergence of a post-capitalist society. Takes some work to get through, but the prose is lucid in it [...]
