Intellectuals and Other Traitors
Intellectuals and Other Traitors
By Bernard E. Brown
Ark House, 1980, 196 pp

A contemporary version of the trahison des clercs, this critique of the New Left trends in the 1960s, and of the role of the West's university intellectuals since, is argued, sometimes over-argued, with verve and bite. The message is an important one for the future of the democratic polity.
