Shame and Glory of the Intellectuals

By Peter Viereck
Beacon Press, 1953
320 pp. $4.00

An ardent and articulate spokesman for the "new conservatism," Mr. Viereck here dissects "Babbitt Jr."--the American liberal intellectual who failed, in the 1930's and 1940's, to detect in Communism the enemy he had fought in Fascism. A stimulating and intelligent book, though the reader may feel unduly pelted with aphorisms.
