KIRKUS REVIEW

The Newsweek editor, professor, and former close adviser to Roosevelt gives- from personal contact- a series of profiles of contemporary politicos, national and local, major and minor. Here are men who had ""something to teach about politics"": Johnson, pioneer reformer; Charles A. Beard- the educator who challenged orthodoxy; Al Smith, side-walk statesman; Hoover; F.D.R.- the love affair is over; Wilkie; Dewey- the ""real tragedy of 1948""; Garner, Wallace, Farley, Will Hays, Flynn, Felix Frankfurter, Jimmy Walker, Huey Long, etc. etc. Some crisp career histories- if the estimates are open to argument.
