A landmark in 20th-Century sociology, Mannheim's thesis was remarkably prescient in its 1929 German debut for the decade that followed. Its influence can be tracked in the veritable "who's who" of Third Reich dissidents who positively reviewed it, including Herbert Marcuse, Max Horkheimer, Paul Tillich, Hannah Arendt, and Leo Strauss.
