KIRKUS REVIEW

This is lively documentation of a revolutionary decade with that ""you were there"" touch. Phillips, a Washington-based New York Times man and author of The Truman Presidency (1966), mixes headline history with back-page dramatic sidelights and second-section human interest in a very readable amalgam, though he bogs down a bit in New Deal legislation. His self-yclept ""journalistic reprise"" is fitted about a chronological political framework, fleshed out with contemporary color: cultural happenings, popular tastes, and miscellanies of the events that engaged public interest.
