Kellner (1991). Introduction to the Second Edition. (One-Dimensional Man.)

“The book contains a theory of ‘advanced industrial society’ that describes how changes in production, consumption, culture, and thought have produced an advanced state of conformity in which the production of needs and aspirations by the prevailing societal apparatus integrates individuals into the established societies. Marcuse describes what has become known as the ‘technological society,’ in which technology restructures labor and leisure, influencing life from the organization of labor to modes of thought. He also describes the mechanisms through which consumer capitalism integrates individuals into its world of thought and behavior.” (p xii)

Smith (2012). Articulating an Indigenous Research Agenda. (Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples.)

“Although our communities have a critical perspective of universities and what they represent, at the same time these same communities want their members to gain Western educations and high-level qualifications. But they do not want this to be achieved at the cost of destroying people’s indigenous identities, their languages, values and practices.” (p 149)

Smith (2012). Notes from Down Under. (Decolonizing Methodologies: Research and Indigenous Peoples.)

“In the process of global changes indigenous peoples are socially interested activists rather than passive bystanders. Perhaps it is this positioning that offers greater possibility for the survival of indigenous peoples.” (p 121)
