The Cuban Revolution happened to him. Like many a leftist academic guerrilla, (Maurice Halperin, Zeitlin {of CUBA:TRAGEDY IN OUR HEMISPHERE fame}, David Caute, Rene Dumont, et al) Louis started out in love with Fidelismo and then, when that love was not requited quickly decided the problem was not Castro or Cuba but the whole socialist project. 

Horowitz turned neocon in the Seventies, deciding his own field of sociology had been corrupted by Marxism. It's a tribute not so much to him as to the right turn in academia that his edited collection CUBAN COMMUNISM went through at least nine editions by my count, and I stopped counting at the millenium.
