On Saturday, July 7 2012 Robert Jensen talked about the books that have most influenced his own politics and discuss the importance of radical thought at MonkeyWrench Books. Last summer University of Texas professor Jensen confessed his hidden book-buying addiction, and MonkeyWrench helped him reduced the size of his library by holding a special one-day tent sale of about half of Jensen's collection. This summer, Jensen had to move into a new (and much smaller) office at UT, which means that most of the rest of his library had to go. Jensen's eclectic collection includes titles in media studies, politics, law, history, philosophy, religion, feminism, and critical race studies.
