David Horowitz: Barack Obama's Rules For Revolution - The Alinsky Model

David Horowitz's name has appeared on JR before, but for those who missed it, here's a little about his background. Read more about him and his work at

David Horowitz was one of the founders of the New Left in the 1960s and an editor of its largest magazine,Ramparts. He is the author, with Peter Collier, of three best selling dynastic biographies: The Rockefellers: An American Dynasty (1976); The Kennedys: An American Dream (1984); and The Fords: An American Epic (1987). Looking back in anger at their days in the New Left, he and Collier wrote Destructive Generation (1989), a chronicle of their second thoughts about the 60s that has been compared to Whittaker Chambers’ Witness and other classic works documenting a break from totalitarianism. Horowitz examined this subject more closely inRadical Son (1996), a memoir tracing his odyssey from “red-diaper baby” to conservative activist that George Gilder described as “the first great autobiography of his generation.”

  1. In Re: Barack Obama's RULES FOR REVOLUTION, the Alinsky Model, by David Horowitz:

    A vestpocket booklet, straight forward, easy to understand, and finally, an explanation of why todays radicals think and believe as they do.

    Despite literally centuries of world history that factually reveals the utter failure of the socialist/progressive belief system; why do today's radical leftists persist in attempts to create that system.

    In easy to understand narrative, this booklet explains the seductive delusions that drive the thinking of todays leftist radicals. A must read for everyone of principle, whether liberal, conservative or points in between.
