    Conservative shock-mistress Ann Coulter continues her pillorying of American liberals with a follow-up to Slander. In an argument that poses a challenge to conventional interpretations of the First Amendment, she argues that because liberals are wrong on every issue concerning political analysis or policy prescription, their politics amount to treason.

    Overall

    It's obvious who will hate this book without any consideration for the content... Ann once more takes a flamethrower to the revisionist history written by the liberal media and pundits, destroying it utterly in the process. Anyone who has any interest in discovering the truth about the Cold War, Joe McCarthy, Reagan's masterful strategy in defeating the Soviet Empire, and the utter failure of Democrat foreign policy will find this fascinating, since all the points made during the discourse are based in FACT, and backed by more FACTS (something lacking in the commonly-accepted "historical" missives penned by the liberal elite). I might disagree with her final conclusions, but all in all, this opened up my eyes. Until this point, I "knew" that Joe McCarthy was evil, I just didn't know why... thanks for the history lesson, Ann!

    The son of proudly Communist parents, David Horowitz became a major figure in the 1960s New Left. He is by no means the only intellectual and activist to have moved from the Left to the Right in recent decades, but few have done so while maintaining such a high profile and outspoken style. His book therefore becomes not only an important and fascinating memoir of the 1960s but also a devastating analysis of the legacy of that time.

    Tom says: "Remarkable story, Wonderful narrator."
    "A good comprehensive telling..."
    Overall

    David Horowitz was on the forefront of the "New Left" movement that began in Berkeley and was popularized by its opposition to the Vietnam War. Even going one step beyond, his upbringing in the Marxist ideology would place him at a level of radicalism that few Leftists could claim. His involvement with the Black Panthers... the list goes on. The entire history being told in minute detail might have a slight tendency to drag (especially considering Mr. Horowitz's penchant for self-inspection every step of the way), but the necessity of hearing the unabridged version becomes clear once the details of his ideological transformation come to light. The manner in which the story is told makes it obvious that Mr. Horowitz's "change of heart" was not surprising at all, but simply a matter of time. It could even be said to have been necessary, considering the events leading up to his "heresy". Overall, an enjoyable tale, and a serious argument in favor of the general conservative mindset. Liberals beware: your loss was definitely our gain in this case.
