Summary "David Horowitz confronts the paradox of how so many Americans, including the leadership of the Democratic Party, could turn against the War on Terror in Iraq. He finds an answer in a political Left that shares a view of America as the "Great Satan" with America's radical Islamic enemies. This Left, which once made common cause with Communists, has now joined forces with radical Islam in attacking America's defenses at home and its policies abroad. From their positions of influence in the university and media culture, leftists have defined America as the "root cause" of the attacks against it. In a remarkable exploration of the "Mind of the Left," Horowitz traces the evolution of American radicalism from its Communist past to its "anti-war" present. He then shows how this Left was able to turn the Democratic Party presidential campaign around and reshape its views on the War on Terror."--BOOK JACKET
