Robert Vanderlan teaches American history at Cornell University.
"For a while [Henry Luce's] stable at Fortune included
Dwight MacDonald, Archibald MacLeish, James Agee, and Walker Evans.
. . . Their struggles with Luce and with one another are deftly
evoked by Robert Vanderlan in Intellectuals
Incorporated."-Jackson Lears, New Republic
"Intellectuals Incorporated is a bracing contribution to American intellectual history. It is full of well-drawn biographical portraits, and through them Vanderlan analyzes a dynamic whereby intellectuals transform and are transformed by the world around them. The book reveals the complexity of this process, and Vanderlan writes about multiple paradoxes with originality and insight."-Michael Kimmage, New Republic
