Originally spurred on by an article in Tablet Magazine on the new found love of Marx among young intellectuals, I embarked on a study of the American intellectual class's love affair with Marxism in the 20th century. The two primary resources referenced throughout the series are Hilton Kramer's Twilight of the Intellectuals and Lt. Gen. Ion Mihai Pacepa's Disinformation.
