    I'm afraid my only reaction to Horowitz is the raucous laughter from
    audiences watching "Operation Abolition" when the HUAC chair chomped on

    Do you teach in the social sciences?  Consider my SAYING NO TO POWER
    (Creative Arts, Berkeley, 1999), for course use.  It was written as a
    social history of the U.S. for the past three-quarters of a century
    through the eyes of a participant observer in most progressive social
    movements (I'm 84), and of the USSR from the
    standpoint of a Sovietologist (five earlier books) knowing that country
    longer than any other in the profession.  Therefore it is also a history
    of the Cold War.  Positive reviews in The Black Scholar, American
    Studies in Scandinavia, San Francisco Chronicle, forthcoming in Tikkun,
    etc.  Chapters are up at
