Summary: "Ideological hatred of whites has become a growth industry, boosted by "civil rights" activists and liberal academics. These once-youthful radicals, now entrenched in positions of power and influence, peddle a warmed-over version of the Marxist creed that supported the communist empire and excuses intolerance to the point of murder. Betraying the legacy of Martin Luther King, this unholy alliance of black civil rights leaders and white radicals threatens to undermine America's moral, political, and economic institutions. ... Undeterred, so it seems, by America's Anglo-Saxon roots, people of every race and creed still flock by the millions to these shores, claiming a share of our unparalleled rights and opportunities. Yet, with staggering hypocrisy, a clique of racial warlords and academic malcontents indict our every institution for racial oppression."--From publisher description.

Library Journal Review

Horowitz documented his ideological shift from 1960s revolutionary to end-of-the-century conservative in the compelling Radical Son. This current collection of essays continues his criticism of "leftist" culture and its damaging effects on American society. Its 27 chapters expand his view to what Horowitz sees as anti-white attacks presented by African American activists, the media, and academics at elite institutions, thus undermining democratic values. In turn, he claims allegiance to his radical roots of political, ethnic, and sexual equality and traditional American values. The sections on the Black Pathners (Horowitz cooperated with Huey Newton for a short period of time) echo views appearing in Radical Son. Horowitz closes his work with attacks on President Bill Clinton, not necessarily for his sexual affairs but for possibly compromising national security in allowing the transfer of nuclear and other advanced weapons technology to China on his watch. This is a passionate polemic that will be pleasing to those who agree with the author and deplorable to those who don't. Recommended for public and academic libraries.ÄStephen L.
