9780393030754: The Rise and Fall of the American Left

This treatise argues that the American Left was nurtured by intellectuals and activists who read Jefferson and Whitman before Marx or Mao, and whose sense of radical innocence and wounded idealism sprang from American soil, rather than from European influences.

From the Back Cover:

Born in America, the American Left was nurtured by intellectuals and activists who read Jefferson and Whitman before they read Marx or Mao. One lesson this brilliant history teaches us is that the fury of radical innocence and wounded idealism so peculiar to American intellectual history springs from native soil.
