A rebel in defense of tradition : the life and politics of Dwight Macdonald by Michael Wreszin( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 522 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Macdonald's papers add up to seventy-three feet of extraordinary correspondence, manuscripts, notes, printed matter, photographs, and memorabilia extending from 1920 to 1980 - a full sixty years of vivid material. His correspondence is unusually rich and well catalogued, with letters to and from a variety of significant figures who have shaped twentieth-century intellectual and political history. An entire section is devoted to his Trotskyist period, and many of Macdonald's notes deal with the internal controversies among the membership of the American Committee for Cultural Freedom. Based on these previously unpublished and undiscovered materials, as well as on interviews with Saul Bellow, William F. Buckley, Jr., Irving Howe, Alfred Kazin, Norman Mailer, Mary McCarthy, Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., and William Shawn, to name but a few, this book is a key source for rethinking the political and cultural dilemmas of late-twentieth-century America
