Frank Chodorov was a journalist of the Old Right with an extraordinary writing ability. He was also a top-notch intellectual figure who has been tragically neglected. This collection might be his best. Among the smashing essays here are: "Isolationism," which is his defense of the great American tradition (if you have hesitated to call yourself one, you might change your mind), his classic "Don't Buy Government Bonds," his tribute to Westerns, his powerful essays against those who say that the New Testament endorses communism (sounds crazy but...), his blast at the New Deal, his tribute to the peddler, and so much more. His writing is leagues above most of what passes for political writing today. Bring back Frank Chodorov!
