A lengthy biography of an extraordinary political activist and speaker. For three decades, until he was murdered by a deranged former friend in 1980, Lowenstein was a tireless leader, especially of the young, in liberal causes. But Cummings brings out his occasional lack of candor and allegations about his sexual orientation and CIA connections.
