As a youth, the author was a leftist radical of dubious rhetoric. Nowadays, and with considerably more visibility, he’s a right-wing ideologue of dubious rhetoric. Here, in his typical style, he exposes the anti-white racism of the Civil Rights Movement, which he calls “an expanding industry” among “the progressive intelligentsia.” That racial hatred and closed-mindedness do not belong exclusively to Caucasians shouldn’t surprise anybody. Whether or not Horowitz’s assertions and conclusions about this possess validity, one must judge for oneself. Jeff Riggenbach does a particularly good job, reading with accuracy, expression, and appropriate fervor. Hardly mellifluous, his voice has a homely intelligence, like that of Horowitz himself, but without the latter’s stridency. Y.R. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 01]
