Straussophobia is a detailed, diversity-oriented defense of Leo Strauss and his followers against the false and often malicious charges that have been leveled by Shadia Drury and other critics, including Tim Robbins, Anne Norton, Earl Shorris, and Nicholas Xenos. Devoting particular attention to Strauss's interpretations of Thucydides, Plato, Xenophon, Farabi, Machiavelli, Hobbes, Locke, and Carl Schmitt, the book also assesses the responsibility of Straussians--genuine and spurious--for the Iraq War.
Peter Minowitz is associate professor of political science at Santa Clara University and author of Profits, Priests, and Princes: Adam Smith's Emancipation of Economics from Politics and Religion.
