Destructive Generation
Second Thoughts About the Sixties

As leading New Leftists in the Sixties, Peter Collier and David Horowitz were intimately involved in the radicalism of the day. Later on, they became the first of their generation to publicly reject the objectives of that revolutionary era and point out the cultural chaos it had left behind. Part memoir, part political analysis, part social history, Destructive Generation is the compelling story of their intellectual journey into and out of the radical trenches. Telling stories of the New Left’s most famous (and infamous) personalities and events, Collier and Horowitz reveal the destructive legacy of the Sixties and the way in which that decade continues to cast a long shadow over politics and culture today. When it was first published more than a decade ago, Destructive Generation was a controversial bestseller that some critics compared to Whittaker Chambers’ powerful political testament, Witness. This new edition contains new material which makes this classic work more relevant than ever in our own divided time.
