About the Author

Michael Rectenwald is a recently retired Professor of Liberal Studies at New York University, where he taught cultural and social history as well as academic writing since 2008. He is the author of ten books, including Beyond Woke (New English Review Press, 2020), Google Archipelago: The Digital Gulag and the Simulation of Freedom (New English Review Press, 2019), Springtime for Snowflakes: 'Social Justice' and Its Postmodern Parentage (New English Review Press, 2018), Nineteenth-Century British Secularism: Science, Religion and Literature (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016), Academic Writing, Real World Topics (Broadview Press, 2015), and Global Secularisms in a Post-Secular Age (De Gruyter, 2015). Dr. Rectenwald is a prominent spokesperson for academic freedom and free speech and an expert on the history and character of the 'social justice' movement. He has published articles and essays on these topics in several periodicals and news outlets and has appeared regularly on national television networks, as well as on numerous podcasts and radio shows.


Michael Rectenwald has written a thought experiment for our time, the 1984 of the COVID era, where we can step back and view today's America for what it is: a society infected not by a virus but by collective hysteria. Thought Criminal explores the meaning of individualism in an increasingly collectivist society, where our thoughts are not our thoughts but those infused in us by the media and the Collective Mind, and the very notion of free will becomes a distant memory. This is fiction that makes us think and makes us dream. -Kenneth R. Timmerman, NY Times best-selling author of The Election Heist and other books
Both an allegory for our present collectivist times and a vision of the future, Thought Criminal draws you in irresistibly from the first pages, immersing you in a thrilling and disturbing adventure. --Janice Fiamengo, retired Professor of English, University of Ottawa
