Review:

"Fighting Liberal is about "one of the most remarkable careers in American Congressional history. It is the first—and, unfortunately, the last—comment on his own life by man who served his country without selfishness and without fear."—Richard L. Neuberger, Saturday Review of Literature (Richard L. Neuberger Satruday Review of Literature)

"Always a valuable servant of the Republic, Norris in his last years had become a valuable servant of world regeneration; and his autobiography is a valuable testament of both services."—Allan Nevins, New York Times (Allan Nevins New York Times)

"Norris writes as he spoke, plainly and bluntly, and the philosophy he puts forward, a mixture of Populism, Christianity, and the New Deal, is the philosophy he lived by. Few modern American legislators left a more substan-tial record of achievement behind them. . . . In the earlier part of his story, in which he tells of his youth and young manhood in Nebraska, he has written an authentic American document that belongs on the same shelf as Hamlin Garland and other chroniclers of the middle border."—New Yorker (New Yorker)
