Izzy Stone was a reporter, a radical, an idealist, a scholar and, it is clear, a writer whose insights have more than stood the test of time. More than fifteen years after his death, this collection of his work from I.F. Stone's Weekly and elsewhere is astonishing in its relevance to our age, addressing the clash between national security and individual liberty, the protection of minorities, economic fairness, social justice, and the American military abroad.
The core of Stone's genius was his newsletter, I.F. Stone's Weekly, published from the mid-1950s to the early 1970s. His meticulous dissection of the news was unsurpassed, a direct descendent of the great pamphleteers like Thomas Paine, and a forerunner to the best of today's political blogs. Stone's brilliant, investigative reporting; his wonderful, impassioned style; and his commitment to his values all make this collection an inspiration, and a revelation.

I.F. (Izzy) Stone (1907–1989) had a remarkable journalistic career, as an editorialist at the New York Post during the Great Depression, a longtime staffer at The Nation , the author of many books, and the founder and editor of his own I.F. Stone's Weekly , he "spoke truth to power" with an effectiveness that few have done before or since.From Booklist:
When I. F. Stone died in 1989, it seemed reasonable to assume that his investigative reporting, columns, and editorials would soon be forgotten, as is the case with most journalism. But the words published in I. F. Stone's Weekly, a unique newsletter about national and international politics published from 1953 to 1971, have not faded from the record, and resonate today. Weber has chosen wisely from the newsletter and Stone's freelance pieces for the Nationand the New York Review of Books, and Peter Osnos, founder of PublicAffairs press and a former editorial assistant to Stone, has written a lively, loving introduction to the always erudite and passionate, sometimes irascible, hard-digging reporter. Osnos is not exaggerating when he stresses the relevance of Stone's journalism today, and that is uplifting. Indeed, a great journalist guarding the public interest is cause for celebration in any era. But it is also profoundly depressing because so little has changed within the U.S. government and in the world's trouble spots since Stone was on the case.
