C. Wright Mills

Charles Wright Mills (August 28, 1916 – March 20, 1962) was an American sociologist, and a professor of sociology at Columbia University from 1946 until his death in 1962. Mills was published widely in popular and intellectual journals. He is remembered for several books, such as ''The Power Elite'', which introduced that term and describes the relationships and class alliances among the US political, military, and economic elites; ''White Collar: The American Middle Classes'', on the American middle class; and ''The Sociological Imagination'', which presents a model of analysis for the interdependence of subjective experiences within a person's biography, the general social structure, and historical development.

Mills was concerned with the responsibilities of intellectuals in post–World War II society, and he advocated public and political engagement over disinterested observation. Mills's biographer, Daniel Geary, writes that Mills's writings had a "particularly significant impact on New Left social movements of the 1960s era." It was Mills who popularized the term ''New Left'' in the US in a 1960 open letter, "Letter to the New Left". Provided by Wikipedia
