Alistair Cooke (1908–2004) enjoyed an extraordinary life in print, radio, and television. He worked as a journalist and broadcaster for many different organizations, including the BBC, The Times, and the Guardian, and won numerous awards for his work. He is best known both at home and abroad for his weekly Letter from America, the longest-running radio series in broadcasting history.Review:
'This book is as much a monument to a vanishing civilisation as a history ofthe United States.' CONTEMPORARY REVIEW (Feb 03) 'Cooke knows full well thatthe US is no utopia, but is canny enough not to let that spoil the narrative- which is little short of a celebration ... Cooke presents the reader with a feast of erudition which serves only to elevate his reputation' SLN (Scottish Legion News) (Feb/March 03) * * * * 'It is almost thirty years since Alistair Cooke's celebrated America, which acompanied the marvellous TV series. Now comes a new edition, a splendid gift or an opportunity to replace the dog-eared original languishing on the shelf. Cooke's original text stands, for reasons he explains in his preface to this lavish re-issue.' BOOKS MAGAZINE (Dec
