ABSTRACT
The article examines the book "Shame and Glory of the Intellectuals, by Peter Viereck. Viereck is correct in observing that almost nobody admits to being a conservative any more, and people object to being called a "reactionary"-although the word itself is not a dishonorable one. Viereck does not add that these days even the most unorthodox liberals are understandably fearful of being thought of as radicals. Early in his book, Viereck explains his title: the glory of "twentieth century liberal intellectuals is the vigor with which they took the only possible position toward the Nazi threat."
