Description
In this intellectual companion piece to his acclaimed autobiography, Radical Son, David Horowitz argues that, even in this supposedly post-ideological, post-Cold War era, the historic themes of that conflict still drive our politics and animate our cultural debates. With keen political insight and a masterly grasp of history, he examines how the political Left, including those who describe themselves as liberals, has refused to learn from the past -- particularly from the checkered records of progressive movements for social justice. This important work is a cohesive and searing document for all who refuse to bury their heads in the sand while American institutions and beliefs are corrupted by the politics of bad faith masquerading under the guise of social justice.

display_description In this intellectual companion piece to David Horowitz's acclaimed autobiography, Radical Son, the most famous defector from the radical Left argues that the historic themes of that conflict still drive our politics and animate our cultural debates today. With keen political insight and a masterful grasp of history, Horowitz traces the radical project from its origins in nineteenth-century socialism to the disastrous excesses of such current "progressive" causes as political correctness, radical feminism, racial preferences, and what he describes as the nihilistic campaign to "deconstruct" the American idea itself. He points out the refusal of the political Left to learn from the checkered history of progressive movements for social justice and equal outcomes, and warns that this refusal is creating a new "cold war" against America-a culture war that pits "progressives" against America's founding principles and ideas.
