Jamie Glazov - Life and Career

Life and Career

Glazov's father, Yuri Glazov, was a Soviet dissident during the Leonid Brezhnev period, and signed the Letter of Twelve, denouncing Soviet human rights abuses. His mother, Marina Glazov, was also an active dissident, typing and circulating Samizdat, underground political literature. Glazov's father took the risk of applying for a visa to exit the USSR. Avoiding imprisonment, Yuri Glazov and his family left the USSR in 1972 and settled in Halifax, in 1975, when Jamie was nine.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s Glazov attended Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, earning a bachelor's degree in Political Science. Glazov holds a Ph.D. in History from York University in Canada. He used to write the "Dr. Progressive" column at EnterStageRight.

Glazov wrote and edited the introduction to David Horowitz's recent book Left Illusions. He is also the co-editor (with David Horowitz) of the book The Hate America Left, and is the author of Canadian Policy Toward Khrushchev's Soviet Union (McGill-Queen's University Press, 2002) as well as 15 Tips on How to be a Good Leftist.

Despite holding Canadian citizenship, he wrote in one of his articles: "Canada is based on anti-Americanism. It is built in opposition to America. Without anti-Americanism, Canada would cease to exist."

In an interview with G. Gordon Liddy, he appeared on CSPAN2's Book TV on April 6, 2009.

In 2009 he came out with the book entitled United in Hate: The Left's Romance with Tyranny and Terror.
