Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Wickenden, former executive editor of The New Republic, presents the first major anthology of essays from America's provocative political and cultural magazine, tracing the evolution of 20th-century liberal thought. Beginning with the outbreak of World War I and ending with the collapse of totalitarianism, the anthology includes essays by preeminent critics and public figures such as John Maynard Keynes on Soviet Russia, Margaret Sanger on birth control, and Andrew Kopkind on the Watts riots, as well as the voices of lesser known Americans, including a housewife deploring her fate in 1917 and the confessions of an inner-city schoolteacher.
