The great American novelist F.Scott Fitzgerald once observed that American lives had no second acts. The odyssey of David Horowitz refutes Fitzgerald's claim. Born into a Communist family, Horowitz became one of the founders and intellectual leaders of the New Left in the 1960s. Then, as the result of a tragedy that was both personal and political, he became profoundly disillusioned with the radical movement and its social vision. In the 1980s he began a second career as a conservative intellectual, establishing an educational center in Los Angeles, writing a series of books and launching several magazines that played an influential role in the culture wars the Sixties had spawned.
