In these wide-ranging essays, Todd Gitlin calls upon intellectuals on the left to once again engage American public life and resist the trappings of knee-jerk negativism, intellectual fads, and political orthodoxy. He argues for a renewed sense of patriotism based on the ideals of shared sacrifice, tough-minded criticism, and a willingness to look anew at the global role of the United States after 9/11. Gitlin's blunt, frank analysis of the current state of the left and his willingness to challenge orthodoxies pave the way for a revival in leftist thought and a new liberal patriotism.
