 "How a small collective of haut bourgeois central European scholars and their sophisticated ideas have survived and contined to exert such symbolic power in today's imagination--eighty years after emigration and a quarter century after the last Austrian-born scholars in the group passed away--is the subject of this book," Janek writes in the introduction.

The Marginal Revolutionaries is published by Yale University Press and is available on the publisher's website.

Congratulations, Janek!
