Strategy for Liberals, by Irwin Ross
It is a singular commentary on the state of American political thinking that in almost two decades no new “names” have come to the fore among left-wing and liberal thinkers. The political intelligentsia that writes the books and stirs discussion is still composed almost exclusively of men who became established in the late 1920′s and early 1930′s, at relatively young ages, and who today are in their middle or late forties.
