    This article explores the rich legacy of Henry Mayer for the study of politics, and the media, in the Australian context and his influence on several generations of Australian intellectuals whom he taught. The article concludes that Henry Mayer remains inscrutable ; such is the complexity of his worldview and the unique circumstances of his upbringing in Germany under the shadows of the Second World War.
