As one of the creators of the New Left, David Horowitz knows from the inside the tyrannical impulses of today’s progressives. For the last several decades he has waged ideological war against his old comrades, exposing their totalitarian designs evident today in every social institution the left has invaded. The current volume in his magisterial collection of essays The Black Book of the American Left focuses on the culture wars, the contest of ideas still being fought out in schools, popular culture, and the media. With relentless argument and fierce passion, Horowitz exposes the incoherence, hypocrisy, and naked lust for power that drives the left and leaves in its wake social, cultural, and political ruin. A future history of our times will find no better source-book than these dispatches from the culture-war front.
