Sidney Hook has been an outspoken, often profound political philosopher and polemicist for six decades. This lively intellectual autobiography focuses on epic battles against reactionaries of various complexions during the author's youth and against those who since World War II have not shared his fervent distrust of the Soviet Union. He is particularly scathing about academic colleagues who, in his opinion, compromised the integrity of the universities by appeasing radical protesters during the Vietnam era. A very good book.
