Abstract:

"This is a series of essays dealing with authors who stand at 'the bloody crossroads: where literature and politics meet.' Why bloody? Because writers' blood has often been shed when they boldly expressed their opinions, and their opinions have often influenced political leaders to shed the blood of others. In his analysis of contemporary writers such as Orwell, Solzhenitsyn, and Camus, Podhoretz examines the literary and cultural sweep of the conflict between totalitarianism and the democratic West. He traces the roots of widespread unfriendly attitudes toward the United States and suggests why such opinion holders are misguided and dangerous. He also shows that 'testimony of the ex-communists makes nonsense of the hopes for peaceful coexistence or detente between the two systems. Neither, however, does it make war inevitable'"--Publisher's web site.
