Partisan Review, Vol. LX, No. 4, 1993

ISBN: (ISSN)00312525
Boston, MA: Partisan Review, Inc., 1993. First Printing. Softcover. This number of the late, respected literary-cultural journal is a special issue dedicated to "The Politics of Political Correctness." With articles that delve deeply & thoughtfully into the phenomenon as it had evolved up to circa 1993 by such intellectual heavyweights as Morris Dickstein, Hilton Kramer, Executive Editor Edith Kurzweil, Daphne Merkin, Chief Editor William Phillips, Ronald Radosh & many others. The topics include "Correcting PC," "Confronting the Monolith," "Political Correctness in German Universities," "Notes of a Lonely White Woman," "McCarthyism of the Left" & so forth. More than a quarter-century after this compilation was first published, the issues of political correctness & polarization have reached levels where opposing extremes almost meet back-to-back, dug in politically, socially & economically with no apparent middle ground, perhaps irreconcilable. Read for yourself what highbrow writers tried to get across when it was still barely possible to communicate outside of an echo chamber. A very important issue in this historic, collectible series. With brief notes on contributors, contemporary ads, etc. Complete with attached sheet of subscription cards between pages 20-21, & in fine condition with only very mild rubbing, scratching & occasional tiny spots, faint creases to front, back covers & spine; one small, thin area of loss of paper with soiling at lower right edge & corner of spine; lightest, almost indiscernible sparse spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps at corners of a few page leaves. Fine. [Item #3283]
