YOU CAN'T DO THAT by George Seldes


Email this review


This book has as much dynamite as America's Sixty Families though the focus is not on individuals but on organizations. And such as a lacing as some of them are in for:- the Liberty League, the National Civic Federation, the American Legion, the D. A. R., the Vigilantes, the Elks, and the various and sundry pro-fascist, pro-Nazi organizations. The press comes off badly, throughout. The courts do not emerge untainted. In fact, one begins to wonder where we can safely look. He puts up a good plea for supporting the American Civil Liberties Union, but otherwise one feels in the midst of a den of thieves, out-throats, self-seekers, and worshippers of the almighty dollar. It's exciting reading -- if you happen not to be flicked on the raw. But it has a lot of explosive material and may cause a sensation.
