The continuing controversy over Frances Fox Piven puts me in mind of Discover the Networks a website run by David Horowitz’s Freedom Center. Discover the Networks is an easy-to-use and very worthwhile guide to the American political left. I found the site tremendously helpful while researching Radical-in-Chief. Discover the Networks updates frequently, and I’m pleased to see that it’s already incorporated some of my own research on modern American socialism and community organizing.
