Iain Macdonald’s What Would Be Different reviewed at Symposium

Here. The summation:

What Would Be Different is a very well written book; it also has the merit of being accessible to those who may not be familiar with Adorno’s work. Finally, it takes an important stand in a debate that matters, not just to armchair academics, but to everybody on the planet. If ever there was a time that change for the better was needed, this is surely it. Macdonald realizes how high the stakes are in this debate. He takes Adorno’s side against commentators, who (I would argue) seriously misinterpret Adorno by eviscerating the radical core of his thought. Equally important, these commentators deprive those who currently seek significant social change of ideas that could contribute substantially to it.
