9780578080765: The Left is Seldom Right

The purpose of this book is threefold:

1. To further document cases in both the United States and abroad that verify Jonah Goldberg’s thesis that a considerable segment of the American public is misled by the use of the terms “RIGHT vs. LEFT,” which are  cliché ridden, and often erroneous in their presentation of the most essential relevant facts and the conclusions drawn.

2. To demonstrate that it is primarily the Political Left that has a vested interest in the continued use of this terminology due to the considerable inroads made by the liberal media on public opinion. Many political pundits have drawn on the prestige of major writers and Hollywood celebrities whose work was shaped by a critical view of American culture as the epitome of alienation, hypocrisy and crass materialism in modern society. Their assumptions are that other cultures and societies are more authentic, “holistic,” integral and devoted to a sense of solidarity and community. These views have been reinforced in popular culture, especially in film and popular song as part of the counter-culture that arose in the 1960s. 

3. To show that antisemitism was not inherently a part of many nationalist “right-wing” movements and that it is generated today overwhelmingly from the Far Left under the encouragement of the wealth and power of militant Islam.

About the Author:

Norman Berdichevsky is the author of The Danish-German Border Dispute, Nations, Language and Citizenship, Spanish Vignettes; An Offbeat Look into Spain's Culture, Society & History and An Introduction to Danish Culture. He is the author of more than 200 articles and book reviews that have appeared in a variety of American, British, Danish, Israeli and Spanish periodicals and is a contributing editor for New English Review.

Review:

A challenging and provocative look at the history of “right wing” vs. “left wing” political movements and personalities. Dr. Berdichevsky shatters the ideological prism those terms impose. This book will change the way you view the political world, forever.

--Rebecca Bynum, author of Allah is Dead: Why Islam is Not a Religion

 

Norman Berdichevsky peels away the superficial layers of Left and Right, digs deep into history, unearths the complex political realities masked by a Good guys-Bad guys dichotomy devised by the Left for its own self-glorification, and brings to light the moral imperative.  

--Nidra Poller, novelist and journalist

 

In his "twenty-five case studies of crises, wars, alliances, conflicts, personalities and elections" Norman Berdichevsky clarifies the confusing history of Left-Right terminologies. He illustrates why a single dimension is insufficient to understand the differences and the unlikely alignments of supposed political opposites.

Be prepared to be enlightened, surprised and entertained as Dr. Berdichevsky lays bare the history behind the history you thought you knew proving that politics makes for strange bedfellows indeed.

  --Baron Bodissey (Editor, Gates of Vienna)

 

The malcontents gnawing at the fabric of western society thought they found a safe place hiding under the misnomer of "progressives".  And then came the savvy Norman Berdichevsky!  

--Judi McLeod, editor Canada Free Press

 

It is the darkest times that most anxiously call for light. In a world of lies, the light we hold to is truth. Norman Berdichevsky's work represents a courageous truth. Truth about the world we live in and those who would destroy it. To stand up to lies in a world of them requires courage, and to tell the truth requires even more.

--Daniel Greenfield (Editor, Sultan Knish)

--New English Review

The terms LEFT and RIGHT are so taken for granted in any discourse on political affairs that Dr. Berdichevsky s remarkable book appears as a welcome antidote to get us off the habit. It is a novel, insightful and well written treatise that should be required reading in any 101 course on political science and international affairs.

The twenty five case studies cover a varied range of both American and international affairs and history that reveal how often the political extremes on both the Right and Left have found a common front that ..... Glorify and deify abstractions such as The Nation, The Working Class, The Party, The Race, The King, The Leader, The Church and worst of all, The People

The book also contains an engaging personal note on how the author matured from radical and impressionable teenager, captivated by the language of the Left, convinced that it is always right, to the mature student of human nature and fallibility that is apparent in his judgment today.

This is indeed a book that suits the times with the approaching American presidential election of 2012 in which a large segment of the public may be expected to follow the same trajectory of political thinking by rejecting the glamour appeals of the Left with its penchant for identifying itself with so called progressive policies.

A large element in the book deals with how popular culture, particularly the cinema, has molded opinion in identifying its heroes with a false image of THE LEFT and why Hollywood has never dealt honestly with either the crimes of Stalinism and the gulags, Pol Pot, Castro, Arafat, or the principled resistance in World War II to the Nazis on the part of conservative, Christian, monarchist, nationalist and authoritarian parties and leaders... --The Discriminate Thinker

Last year, Dr. Berdichevsky published two books, one on Danish culture and the other on the Left-Right dichotomy. He engages popular culture, films, and the news media to explain why radical leftism is embraced as heroic, while traditional culture is denigrated. Many writers pursue this theme, but few do so with such an interesting and accessible range of topics. It is rare today to find writers who earn the title public intellectual and even more rare that they receive their due: Norman Berdichevsky is a public intellectual in the best sense of the term, and his books and articles deserve a larger audience. --Tina Trent --The Dissident Professor
