Rossman, Michael

New Age Blues; on the politics of consciousness

E. P. Dutton, New York. 1979, xiv, 270p., softbound original; 8.25 x 5.25 inch glossy wraps. Stated first edition. "..the personal-growth-and-consciousness movement developed largely in isolation from this continuing social movement [the New Left] and its influences-- but not in isolation from the reaction to these. Indeed, the consciousness movement seemed to evolve more in response to the conclusion that the social movement had failed, and to the social forces inclining it to failure, than in response to the more progressive forces and potentials at hand. The idea that each movement might evolve to deepen and complete itself through the other received scant attention.." In fact, political academics like Kirkpatrick Sale so harshly reviewed Rossman's book (a harshness trained at Rossman's tolerance of mysticism) it got little further attention from those it might normally concern
