For over fifty years, from the 1940s to the 1990s, Irving Howe was a commanding, if controversial, figure in American intellectual life. Writing with the productivity of a major industry, Howe took on issues ranging from left-wing politics and American writers to Yiddish literature, the State of Israel, the condition of the American academy, and New York cultural and literary life. Best known for his prize-winning history of American Jewish immigrant culture, World of Our Fathers, Howe was an outspoken socialist as well as founder and editor of the democratic socialist magazine Dissent. Through a clear, eloquent, and forcefully argued study of Howe's politics, writings, and thought, Edward Alexander constructs a sympathetic yet critical intellectual biography of this complex individual

Its writers demonstrate that the foundation of the state of Israel, far from being the primal sin alleged by its accusers, was one of the few redeeming events in a century of blood and shame."--Jacket
