This selection of opinion pieces by the influential New York Times columnist is a sequel to Sketches in the Sand (1967). Reston has chosen a cross section of 88 columns fromn 1967 to 1985. He is more selective here than in the earlier collection (which was far longer), and much less repetitive. Rather than using a chronological arrangement, Reston has grouped his columns into nine broad catgories (e.g., "The Press," "The Presidents," "Reflections on America"). The result is a thoughtful personal look at the past two decades of American life and politics. Included are Reston's 1971 "Letters from China" and several nostalgic pieces on campus radicalism in the late 1960s. For public and academic libraries. Thomas A. Karel, Franklin & Marshall Coll. Lib., Lancaster, Pa.
