A compelling account of the author's youth, education, and decades of warfare in the anti-Stalinist Left. The core of the story concerns the support of the New York intellectuals of this persuasion for the American side in the cold war, and the author's rather poignant encounters with, and observation of, the New Left in the 1960s.
