From his pre-World War II days as Leon Trotsky's leading American apologist to his postwar role as mentor to William F. Buckley Jr. at National Review, James Burnham (1905-1987) was, at different times, one of America's most important intellectuals on both the Left and Right of the political spectrum. This researched volume, the first full-length biography of Burnham, should establish him as one of the twentieth century's outstanding thinkers.

About the Author:

Daniel Kelly is Assistant Professor in the Department of Philosophy at Purdue University.

From Publishers Weekly:

Best remembered for his first book The Managerial Revolution (1941) and as senior editor of the National Review, James Burnham spent his life struggling to rid the world of totalitarianism and liberalism in all their forms. In his comprehensive biography, James Burnham and the Struggle for the World, Daniel Kelly, who taught modern European history at NYU until 1996, narrates in minute detail Burnham's development as a political thinker from his college days at Princeton and Balliol College, Oxford, to his work as a Trotskyist in the 1930s, to his eventual disenchantment with socialism and swing to the right. He supported imperialism and defended U.S. involvement in Vietnam. Kelly's turgid prose and exhausting detail make for tiresome reading, but a small circle of readers will find this chapter of political history engrossing. Foreword by Richard Brookhiser.

Book Description Isi Books, United States, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. James Burnham (1905-1987) was one of the most influential anticommunist figures of the Cold War era, as Daniel Kelly's fascinating biography makes clear. But like many anticommunists, Burnham first started on the other side. Kelly tells the story of Burnham's political journey and intellectual transformation into -- as Richard Brookhiser once stated it -- "the first neoconservative." Including fascinating vignettes with characters as diverse as George Orwell, Arthur Koestler, Andre Malraux, and Ezra Pound, Kelly's lively and definitive narrative must be read not only by anyone interested in the life of this seminal conservative thinker and Cold War strategist, but by all those who want a better understanding of the forces behind the most important ideological clash of the modern age.
