Arnold Beichman (b. May 17, 1913 in New York City) is a conservative political pundit. He is currently a Hoover Institution research fellow and a columnist for "The Washington Times". He spent much of his life as a crusader against communism.

Beichman was born on New York City’s Lower East Side, in Manhattan, in a family of immigrants from Ukraine. He received a BA from Columbia University in 1934, after which he succeeded his friend, Arthur Lelyveld, as editor-in-chief of the Columbia Daily Spectator. [Margaret Hunt Gram, [http://www.college.columbia.edu/cct/jan04/features4.php "Arnold Beichman ’34: Anti-Communist Warrior"] , Columbia College Today] Beichman spent many years in journalism, and returned to Columbia in his 50s to receive his M.A. and Ph.D. in political science, in 1967 and 1973, respectively.

He is the namesake of "Beichman's Law", which states: "With the single exception of the American Revolution, the aftermath of all revolutions from 1789 on only worsened the human condition." [Arnold Beichman, [http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_hb5244/is_200411/ai_n19563017 "The lesser evil"] , "The Washington Times", November 4, 2004]

Beichman is the author of a book on Herman Wouk entitled "Herman Wouk: the Novelist as Social Historian". Additional works include "The Other State Department", "Yuri Andropov: New Challenge to the West" (coauthored), "Nine Lies about America", "Anti-American Myths: Their Causes and Consequences", and "CNN's Cold War Documentary: Issues and Controversy".
