This book is for the people I love in the world. I don’t think I could list them now, but I’m grateful for what they have made possible.
If you feel that the academic world is a pretty decent place, this is not the book for you. This is a book for the alienated. Or at least for people who are in touch with their alienation. For people who find that utopias are desperately needed and yet all but impossible. I do not recommend this book to prospective graduate students.
