Overview

The anti-white racism of the Left remains one of the few taboo subjects in America. A former confidante of the Black Panthers and author of Radical Son, David Horowitz lays bare the liberal attack on "whiteness"--the latest battle in the war against American democracy. His passionate and candid account of contemporary racism reveals that the Cold War has come home.

Ideological hatred of whites is now 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 thuggery. Betraying the legacy of Martin Luther King, this alliance of black civil rights leaders and white radicals threatens to undermine America's moral, political, and economic institutions.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Once a prominent U.S. leftist, Horowitz garnered an even larger reputation upon the publication of Radical Son, his memoir documenting his transformation from a radical to a conservative. Now, as the editor of the intentionally provocative conservative journal Heterodoxy and a frequent columnist for Salon, Horowitz employs heat-seeking rhetoric that aims to be as inflammatory as possible. Taking on U.S. race relations and claiming that "anti-white racism" has become intrinsic to the black civil rights movement and "common currency of the `progressive' intelligentsia," he launches an all-out attack that is almost comical in its single-mindedness. He documents Louis Farrakhan's controversial and contested statements attacking white European and American culture and politics; goes after Nobel Prize winner Toni Morrison, "whose boundless suspicions of white Americans amount to a demonization as intense as Elijah Muhammad's"; and characterizes Harvard Law School professor Derrick Bell as a "black racist" and a "product of the Communist left." He also explores how American universities have been destroyed by leftist "McCarthyism" and the "political persecution of Newt Gingrich by liberal democrats." But such provocation, presented in essays that seem hurriedly written and which lack footnotes (or any documentation of their more questionable facts), quickly devolves into a boring rant. (Nov.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
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.--Stephen L. Hupp, Urbana Univ., OH Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
Daring critics to call him racist and sexist (again), Horowitz describes a group of liberal civil rights activists that have betrayed their founder Martin Luther King's sincere vision of a color blind society. He also takes on other targets of opportunity on the left in 27 essays, many of which are from the Internet magazine . Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Kirkus Reviews
This collection of screeds by self-styled conservative columnist David Horowitz (The Politics of Bad Faith, 1998; Radical Son, 1997; etc.) lampoons what he views as the destructive orthodoxies blindly embraced by liberal apologists. Nearly all of these pieces first appeared as essays in Salon magazine, which Horowitz characterizes as "a left-of-center publication with sufficient editorial independence to include a dissident writer like myself." The self-characterization is telling because these essays, which purport to be social commentary, reveal an author who likes nothing more than bucking the views of the majority. In one piece, Horowitz chronicles his youthful dalliance with the Black Panthers and his subsequent disillusionment as he came to realize that the party leadership consisted not of idealists but of murderous thugs. In more recent years, he has entered a less lethal arena of combat: the halls of left-wing academia, where, as a guest speaker, he fights the conservative battle against the entrenched forces of the radicalized, but comfortably tenured, elite. Despite the intrusiveness of his ego, Horowitz writes engagingly about contentious issues, particularly the politics of race. Specifically, he objects to the way in which blacks are given carte blanche to indulge in reverse racism, a tendency that Horowitz traces in part to affirmative action and the contemporary mania to stake out the role of the victim. In a highly polemical style, Horowitz argues that Americans, particularly black Americans, have lost sight of the color-blind society envisioned by Dr. King. Horowitz is at his best when he uses the more glaringly fallacious arguments advanced by his ideological foesto expose their inherent hypocrisy. He is at his worst when he engages in personal attacks, such as his gratuitous characterization of cultural theorist bell hooks as "a relatively young woman of limited intelligence and modest talent." Although occasionally blurred by egotism, invective, and repetition, these essays will both aggravate and amuse.

    A real refreshing book

    After picking this controversial book up and reading it cover to cover, I chose to give it 5 stars. Here we have someone who is actually telling the truth. It is about time a book like this came out to show the true racists in America. I am ashamed of the abandonment of Martin Luther King Jr.'s movement.

    An eye opener

    This book tells it like it is and is a must read for anyone that has a mind of their own, it is truly an eye opener. I liked it just as much as 'The Race Card' by Collier and Horowitz, another great read.

    Nixonian Paranoia

    Wow. Talk about a scared Whitey. Horowitz points fingers and creates more tension and race baiting than necessary. It seems like he takes the easy way out with catch-all phrases and pop culture references. In a nutshell, Horowitz questions why African-Americans are upset -- I wonder why they aren't flat-out pissed.

    It's about time!

    Finally, someone had the courage to tell it like it is. All the politically correct lemmings will probably hate this book. Too bad - it had to be said. I think this is a terrific book. Everyone should read it.
