It also includes two wide-ranging general essays on intellectuals and politics and concludes with a speculative essay on the moral and political con-sequences of our species cyber-evolution. George Scialabba, a book columnist for the Boston Globe and frequent contributor to the Boston Review, Dissent, the American Prospect, and the Nation, is admired by a small circle of discerning readers.
What Are Intellectuals Good For?, his second essay collection, brings his eloquent and modest (Christopher Hitchens) voice to a larger audience. Mark Oppenheimer, a columnist for the Huffington Post, included Scialabba s first collection, Divided Mind (2006), in a list of Great Books the Pulitzers Missed. Scott McLemee, the popular Intellectual Affairs columnist of InsideHigherEd, profiled him at length and has contributed a foreword.
