About this Item: Farrar & Rinehart Inc, New York, 1932. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 1st Edition. I'm rating this book Good Plus. It is very solidly bound but does suffer several imperfections. For example, on the covers there is fraying at the top of the spine with a spot of loss (see 2nd photo) and there is rub-through at 3 of the 4 corners. Also, the spine's orange color is somewhat faded. Inside the book there is a tiny spot of wear at the middle edge of several of the early pages. And there are six pages with a thin tear coming up from the bottom edge, the tears ranging from 1/4 of an inch to 2 1/2 inches. One barely touches the bottom of a photograph, none of the rest reaches any of the text or photographs. Now, for what's not wrong with the book: you can see from the first and third photos that the covers, despite their age, are relatively clean and bright, as is the black lettering on the front. And, happily, the pages of the book are very clean. I saw only one or two small spots. There are no markings and no writing/underlining. The photographs appear to be in perfect shape. This rare book is a First Edition with the Farrar & Rinehart colophon on the copyright page. There are 36 numbered pages of text followed by 1 unnumbered page of text and then 80 unnumbered pages with text on the left page and a large b&w photographs on the right page. In 1939 the author, Dorothy Thompson, was recognized by Time magazine as the second most influential woman in the United States, next to Eleanor Roosevelt. She is notable as the first American journalist to be expelled from Nazi Germany in 1934 and as one of the few women news commentators on radio during the 1930s. She is regarded fondly by some as the "First Lady of American Journalism." Thompson's most significant work abroad took place in Germany in the early 1930s. While working in Munich, Thompson met and interviewed Adolf Hitler for the first time in 1931. This would be the basis for her subsequent book, I Saw Hitler. She wrote about the dangers of Hitler winning power in Germany. Thompson described Hitler in the following terms: "He is formless, almost faceless, a man whose countenance is a caricature, a man whose framework seems cartilaginous, without bones. He is inconsequential and voluble, ill poised and insecure. He is the very prototype of the little man." Later, when the full force of Nazism had crashed over Europe, Thompson was asked to defend her "Little Man" remarks; it seemed she had underestimated Hitler. The National Socialists considered both the book and her articles offensive and in August 1934, Thompson was expelled from Germany. She was the first journalist to be kicked out. Thompson's second husband was Sinclair Lewis. Seller Inventory # 000308
