Arguing the World -- Feature documentary on the life and times of writers Irving Kristol, Nathan Glazer, Daniel Bell and the late Irving Howe, all of whom attended New York's City College during the 1930s, then went their different ways in the political ferment of post-war America. Writer-director Joseph Dorman uses vintage newsreel footage as well as interviews with the writers and others in providing a nostalgic look at the urban culture from which they came as well as a lively chronicle of how their views grew increasingly conservative over the years. Deals with matters beyond the experience of youngsters. (A-II) (nr) (1998)
