Alexander Cockburn is one of the most brilliant and consistent left wing voices in public intellectual life today. His columns in the Nation and his contributions to his own website, a great source and site for resistance to the orthodoxies of our times, are major and indispensable contributions to politics outside of the mainstream. He will speak on the Left and whether it still exists in America today.
