Reactionary Radicalism: Dan Erdman's review of Look Homeward, America. In Search of Reactionary Radicals and Front-Porch Anarchists

From the review in Democratyia, Autumn 2007,
If there is an ideological core to 'reactionary radicalism', it is surely isolationism and pacifism. Almost every one of the people Kauffman profiles seems to have devoted their lives to the pursuit of one or both of these causes, in various different historical circumstances; Kauffman uses their stories to evangelise for these values.
It hasn't been around for a long time, but it was common in Chicago once, and I knew some of the believers.
