However, world events and his personal experiences within the Trotskyist movement convinced him that all forms of Marxism must be totalitarian, and he left the world of Marxism in 1940.

This book focuses especially upon Mr. Burnhams career as a senior editor with William F. Buckley, Jr.s National Review, putting him within the context of the conservative intellectual movement as a whole. Burnham, despite what he called his hard anticommunist public stance, served as a moderating pragmatic force within National Review and American conservatism. He urged fellow conservatives to accept a minimum welfare state, to work within the established two-party system, and to adopt a tough but realistic foreign policy. Contents: From Left to ?- Lenins Heir and Beyond- Burning His Bridges- Whither Conservatism?- The Ideology of Western Suicide- Sectarian and Doctrinaire Clannishness- Mr.
