Description:

New York. 1967. Random House. 1st Printing. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. 21. 465 pages. November 1967. hardcover. Jacket design by Ronald Clyne. keywords:. inventory # 13833. FROM THE PUBLISHER - I.F. STONE is that rarity, an American newspaperman who has become a writer of distinction and a social critic of stature. When his previous book, The Haunted Fifties, was published, he wrote the following about himself: I am, I suppose, an anachronism. In this age of the corporation men, I am an independent capitalist, the owner of my own enterprise, subject to neither mortgager nor broker, factor nor patron. In an age when young men setting out on a career of journalism must find their niche in some huge newspaper or magazine combine, I am a wholly independent newspaperman, standing alone, without organizational or party backing, beholden to no one but my good readers. In recent years that ‘anachronism’ has come close, in the minds of some, to being a national resource. An ‘essential journalist,’ as Murray Kempton describes him, Mr. Stone derives his reportorial uniqueness not merely from his wit and historical sense. More important, in the eyes of both those who agree and those who disagree with him, is his independence. A radical whose commitment to conserving the best of American institutions is absolute, he stands as critic, commentator, and prober of the events and men that form our political process. This book collects the best of I.F. Stone’s pieces written over the last five years. It goes beyond being a chronicle of Mr. Stone’s journalism; it is an incisive view of what is going on in our country and why. The relentless, yet humane, insight, for example, that informs his writing about the men who have helped to make our times—John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson, Senator Fulbright and Curtis LeMay, Hubert Humphrey and Malcolm X—tells us not merely who they are and what they want, but how their strengths and weaknesses affect the quality of our times. Mr. Stone is an energetic and entrancing guide through the often bewildering contradictions and frequent duplicities of contemporary Washington. For example, when the State Department published its White Paper on Vietnam in 1965, he created a minor sensation by digging out of the White Paper itself and out of the Pentagon the raw facts to refute the State Department. He traveled to Vietnam, Cambodia, Israel, and the Dominican Republic to offer his readers not just second-hand data about crises, but the feeling and thoughts of the participants. Probably nowhere else can one get a better sense of what wartime Saigon is like than in the dispatches included here. For the citizen who needs to make up his own mind, I.F. Stone’s radical criticism-be it on the Supreme Court or the Middle East, on the press or the New Left—provides the excitement of exploring some of the most urgent current issues from a fresh point of view. .
