Decade of Decision: The Crisis of the American System
Although many disagreed with his political views, Harrington, over the course of decades, earned great respect, nationally and internationally, for his consistent championing of a socialism that included political democracy and civil liberties. His extraordinary energy, dedication to principles, and humane personal style rendered him an admired symbol of progressive politics even during the politically conservative decades of the 1970s and 1980s.
