Wheatland provides a detailed account of the grant applications, reformulations and submissions when early proposals were deemed too theoretical, and conflicts with American researchers affiliated with the American Jewish Committee AJC on the book.
Indeed, throughout the era, Marcuse himself constantly made the point. While some New Left publications might have ignored Marcuse before , as Wheatland claims, there were articles in other publications like New Left Review, perhaps the most influential leftist journal globally, Radical America , and countless alternative journals and papers. There were groups in the mids who published on Marcuse in the San Diego area where he was teaching, in Madison and Austin where he had influence, and no doubt in many other areas.
Wheatland himself argues that Repressive Tolerance was highly influential on the New Left and discusses in some detail An Essay on Liberation , which was widely discussed and read by the New Left globally. While Wheatland is right that C. Wright Mills had a major influence on Tom Hayden and the Port Huron statement, he leaves out the influence of John Dewey on the SDS notion of participatory democracy, who also was a major influence on Mills. And Wheatland tortuously raises questions concerning the influence of the Institute for Social Research on Mills and their connections ff , whereas Mills always made the connection quite clear and cited the importance of the Institute for his work.
Wheatland notes that from the s to the present Frankfurt School-inspired critical theory has influenced many different academic disciplines and figures, but does not really cover any new ground here and ends by reducing Frankfurt School influence to three issues of mass culture, totalitarianism, and the role of the intellectual in contemporary society, whereas one could argue that its influence is much broader and no doubt more complex and convoluted. Indeed, the Jay and Wiggershaus books are more valuable than the Wheatland text, as they present a livelier and richer presentation of the ideas and figures in the group, more sustained engagement with the key texts, and stronger interpretive theses.
Although the title of the book is The Frankfurt School in Exile , there is little reflection on the experience of exile, how the experience of National Socialism impacted on their experiences and perceptions in the United States, how being outsiders to U. In fact, Wheatland does not fill a major lacunae in Frankfurt School scholarship or correct some prevalent myths, but merely adds some additional detail to standard accounts. These will be published in the forthcoming volume Herbert Marcuse, Philosophy, Psychoanalysis and Emancipation. New York and London: Routledge.
London and New York: Routledge, Volumes I-III. In fact, Marcuse always countered the refusal of specific modes of thought and behavior with alternative ones, as when he championed critical and dialectical thought against the conformist modes of one-dimensional thought, or pointed to the aesthetic dimension as a utopian projection of ideals of a freer and happier world in contrast to existing suffering and unfreedom.

Some of his judgments as to the extent of developments may seem today, with hindsight, to have been in part erroneous: the extent of formal repression, or the inability of the economic system to continue to produce.
