"One of the great 20th century critical theorists of domination and liberation, Herbert Marcuse has an enormous amount to say to our time. The Great Refusal makes this abundantly clear. The contributors draw Marcuse's imaginative reworking of Hegel, Marx, Freud, and Weber into illuminating conversations with a diverse range of contemporary theorists and political movements. . .from those of the Zapatistas and Chinese factory workers to the Arab Spring and Occupy. This book is a treasure trove for scholars and activists alike."-Wendy Brown, University of California, Berkeley "This is certainly the time for a Marcuse revival!"-Fredric Jameson, Knut Schmidt-Nielsen Professor of Comparative Literature, Duke University
