PUBLIC JOURNAL: Marginal Notes on Wartime America

Max Lerner's editorials and columns made discarding copies of PM a painful process. I knew I'd want to go back to something he had said -- a stimulating angle, a challenge to routine reactions, an immediacy that still had long range value, a clarity that helped clear the air. Now here is a well-chosen selection from those writings -- and historians of tomorrow will find here a vital cutting through of non-essentials to the salient fact in events large and small. A listing of the sub-titles will suggest the scope:- This Favored Land; Freedom and the Fascist Seed; Political Animal in Wartime; A World in the Making and Breaking; Conversations with a Future...A liberal, in the finest sense of the word, looks at the world -- and shares what he sees.
