Out of Step: An Unquiet Life in the 20th Century

By Sidney Hook
Harper & Row, 1987
628 pp. $29.95

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.
