summary
Daniel Patrick Moynihan, one of the late 20th century’s leading public intellectuals, defied easy categorizations throughout his extraordinary life. In this perceptive and carefully argued study, Greg Weiner argues persuasively that Moynihan was an “uncommon liberal”  who embodied liberal and conservative strains and believed in an activist government even as he remained skeptical about government’s capacity to produce change. This fine intellectual biography highlights Moynihan’s extraordinary honesty and range of interests and will remind readers how public life has been diminished since his passing.
