A contributing editor of THE NEW REPUBLIC and a senior fellow of the World Policy Institute presents, in the publisher's words, his "manifesto for an aggressive liberal response to terrorist attacks." He writes so engagingly and persuasively that one must remind oneself that his progressivist partisanship should make one take his analyses cum grano salus. Still, this succulent, informed--indeed, learned--and mercifully brief treatise is a welcome addition to the literary contra-conservative movement of recent years. Scott Brick gives a spirited, lucid, and, at times, exciting reading, emphasizing Berman's eloquence, as well as his message. Each listener must decide individually whether or not the author "is a peerless interpreter of today's events," but there's no question about the excellence of Brick's rendition. Y.R.
