Letiche, now in his nineties, provides an intriguing look at the changes that have occurred during his lifetime. Following his Kiev childhood and formative years in Depression-era Montreal, he completed a doctorate at the University of Chicago and took up a Rockefeller fellowship at the Council on Foreign Relations in New York City. As a technical advisor to the Economic Commission for Africa he conducted trade talks with both gifted and corrupt heads of state in sub-Saharan Africa, and later shared a working White House dinner with an infamous American president. His half-century-long teaching career at Berkeley included a front row seat for the Free Speech Movement and the most documented student revolt in popular history. Told with humour, insight, and humility, Crises and Compassion moves nimbly among weighty events and meaningful personal history, showing how "civility in intellectual exchange" came to be the guiding principle of a life of monumental experiences.

About the Author:

John M. Letiche is professor emeritus of economics at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of numerous books and articles, including Balance of Payments and Economic Growth and Russian Statecraft.

Review:

"Letiche recount of Berkeley's decade of strife - sparked initially by the McCarthy-like "Loyalty Oath" of the 1950s and, more explosively, the war in Vietnam, is riveting." D.E. Moggridge, University of Toronto
