Angie Sandhu examines the relation between intellectuals and society by examining this question in political theory. She critically engages with contemporary debates on the subject both in Britain and the U.S. drawing on a wide range of material. Intellectuals and the People carefully sets out a new argument that calls for intellectuals to address their own elite locations in society by challenging notions of intellectual difference and autonomy.
ANGIE SANDHU is a Research Associate in the Department of English and Cultural Studies at Sheffield Hallam University.
