Product description


Radical Son is one of the best political memoirs I've read. Though it is really a love story--one man becomes passionately enamored with freedom, responsibility, and reason. Or maybe it's a book about faith healing, a true account of how belief in human dignity and individual rights cures blindness, folly, and hatred. Anyway, everyone who was ever involved with or influenced by the New Left should read David Horowitz's words, and then eat their own. I think the last political book that affected me this strongly was Hayek's Road to Serfdom."--P.J. O'Rourke, Author of Age and Guile Beat Youth, Innocence, and a Bad Haircut

"David Horowitz has written a vivid and compelling memoir in which it's the life as it was really lived that matters, not just the politics. Radical Son may be a 'generational odyssey, ' but it's also a work of literature."--James Atlas, Author of The Book Wars: What it Takes to Be Educated in America

"David Horowitz's political pilgrimage from a Sixties radical to a Reagan conservative--and the friends and enemies he has made along the way--makes for a very interesting, very compelling story. Speaking as a conservative: it's much better to have David Horowitz with you than against you. Radical Son demonstrates why."--William J. Bennett, Author of The Moral Compass

"Watch out all of you statist shills and racialist hucksters out there who think you have gotten away with murder and mayhem over the last five decades, with alibis and applause from the media and the academy: David Horowitz has got your number and your jugular. In the first great American autobiography of his generation, this ardent writer on the ramparts remorselessly tracks them all down, going deep into the lairs of the professional liars of the left--the guilty and the gulled, the sadistic and the philanderous, the vain and the vicious--and strips away their tawdry veneer of glamour and idealism to reveal the vile truth--about the Black Panthers and the rest of the revolutionary felons and felines, and finally, in gut-wrenching candor, himself." --George Gilder

"David Horowitz's powerful autobiography details a long journey from a boyhood in the ambit of American Stalinism through young adulthood at the vanguard of the New Left to a mid-life recognition that his various gods had failed. Horowitz's gift for irony and eye for detail haven't deserted him. His book is hard to put down."--Eric Breindel, Editorial Page Editor of The New York Post --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
