ABSTRACT
Reviews the biography `A Rebel in Defense of Tradition,' by Michael Wreszin, which dutifully portrays Dwight Macdonald and his times but too often paraphrases rather than directly quotes from the writer. Profile of Macdonald, Trotskyite, socialist, pacifist, anarchist and aging camp follower of student lefties; His classic essays; His nonintellectual eccentricities.
