My critique of David Horowitz's book is that it is an overview. The book tries to accomplish too much . For the generic anti Communist the Professors fills a valuable
service as an introduction book.
However if one is a dedicated anti Communist In Dennial gives an account of why Communists should never be allowed in the faculty in the first place. This book is an intermediate book in the Anti Communist arsenal.
The premise of this book is how did historians spin the Vennona Intercepts and the KGB files. The answers are found in this hair raising brilliant book. It also demolishes the standard myths about American Communism
1 The American Communist Party was funded by Moscow
2 The Party was subservient to Moscow
3 Members of the party did engage in espionage
4 The Rosenbergs, Hiss and others were clearly guilty
5 Elizabeth Bentley and Chambers told the truth.
I recomend this book strongly to dedicated Anticommunists but remember this is a more advanced book. The reactions of the accademics provides a clear illustration that Commies can not be trusted with information. Their stock and trade is deception
