About the Author:

Norman Podhoretz is now editor-at-large for Commentary magazine, where he was editor-in-chief for thirty-five years. He is also an adjunct fellow of the Hudson Institute and the author of numerous bestselling books, including Making It, Breaking Ranks, Ex-Friends, My Love Affair with America, and The Prophets.

From Library Journal:

Not surprisingly, these essays by Commentary editor Podhoretz, all previously published, deal with issues dear to the hearts of neoconservatives. Camus, Orwell, Kissinger, and Solzhenitsyn are among the subjects considered, while the unifying themes remain anticommunism and the "adversary culture." Despite the title metaphor, the discussions are curiously bloodless. Occasionally illuminating, seldom convincing, they read more like editorials, lacking the specificity or argumentative rigor of good literary criticism or historical analysis. Thus the collection offers little to anyone outside the neoconservative constituency. But because this constitutency is growing and the author's name will prompt demand, most medium-sized and larger public libraries should consider this book seriously. Robert E. Brown, Onondaga Cty. P.L., Syracuse, N.Y.
