Abstract:

Richard Hofstadter (1916-70) was America?s most distinguished historian of the twentieth century.

During his nearly thirty-year career, Hofstadter fought public campaigns against liberalism?s most dynamic opponents, from McCarthy in the 1950s to Barry Goldwater and the Sun Belt conservatives in the 1960s. His opposition to the extreme politics of postwar America?articulated in his books, essays, and public lectures?marked him.
