KIRKUS REVIEW

The thirties as we made them: frank talks by survivors of the crucial social-political contests--Norman Thomas for the radical left, Max Schachtman for the Trotskyites, Earl Browder for the doctrinaire Communists, Gerald L. K. Smith for the Huey Long ""Share Our Wealth"" program, A. J. Muste for militant labor, Granville Hicks for the committed intelligentsia, Hal Draper for the student movement, Burton Wheeler for isolationism--all from lecture appearance on the University of Illinois campus in 1965 and 1966, and providing a uniquely revealing experience for kids who know what happened, want to know how and why.
