Jordan Peterson, formerly an obscure professor of psychology at the University of Toronto, has become famous throughout the West. His popularity began with his opposition to oppressive legislation in Canada, which he argues can force people to use certain gender pronouns, and it peaked with the now famous Channel 4 News interview and the release of his book 12 Rules for Life.

He is a cheerful old farmer who jokes as he serves rice cakes made by his wife, and then he switches easily to explaining what it is like to cut open a year-old man who is tied naked to a bed and dissect him alive, without anesthetic.

Thirteen bitter years ended when Krushchev's ""secret report"" blasted the ideals of the intellectuals who had joined the Communist Party, thinking there to find the best chance for suffering humanity. Now, Howard Fast has attempted to analyse- using his own experience as a touchstone- the factors responsible for the acceptance of the Party's tenets and discipline; the grim awakening to the terror, the fear, the hollow pretenses, the bestiality, the inhumanity that characterized the leadership; the inability of the rank and file to be heard.
