Glazer, Nathan. "The Interested Man." The New Republic, October 2, 2009.
Excerpt: When Irving Kristol joined the new magazine Commentary, he distinguished himself from the other editors–Clement Greenberg, part-time then, Robert Warshow, and me. First, he had an interest in politics, real politics, electoral politics, and not just the politics of left-wing anti-Stalinists, mulling over what was living and what was dead in Marxism, the fate of socialism, the future of capitalism, communist influence in the intellectual world–no mean issues, but hardly ones to affect who won and who lost an election.
