KIRKUS REVIEW

Another magazine now makes its bid for hard cover preservation and permanence and it is well deserved. This is an ample anthology with an impressive cavalcade of contributors and a broad range of coverage-- issues and institutions, letters, religion, history, humor, adventure. There's Rachel Carson's The Edge of the Sea and Hemingway's Old Man; Hillary's ascent of Everest, Vercors' Silence of the Sea. There's Huxley on El Greco, Trotsky on Stalin, Hamilton Basso on Roosevelt, Nixon on Dulles. There's Churchill's Battle of Britain and Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe; and among the many writers Editor Luce, Jacques Barzun, Senator Kennedy, Walter Lord, John Hersey, Robert Paul Smith, Alan Moorehead, Claire Booth, etc., etc. A best and a most which offers sure value and is an all-around family and gift book choice.
