This is a Very Fine edition written by one of the most acclaimed reporters and commentators of our time. Of this volume, Harrison Salisbury says "I write of reporting in this day, of complex and unpopular issues and men I have tried to understand and interpret. I would be shocked if every reader applauded my judgements". Harrison Salisbury spent most of his life on the front lines of reporting. He was thrown out of the University of Minnesota as editor of the college daily for his campaigns against the administration. He almost lost his first journeyman's job for his reports on the Great Depression. Stalin threatened to expel him from Russia in World War II. Some editors of the New York Times wanted to fire him for his reports from Moscow and he was thrown out of Moscow for those same reports. The experience and intelligence of this writer comes through from start to finish in this beautiful volume. Published in 1988 this copy is in Very Fine condition. This beautiful book is bound in full leather with ornate gilt ornamentation to both boards as well as the spine. The spine has raised hubs in the tradition of classic bookbinding and there is a fine satin bookmark sewn-in to the book. This edition, published by the Franklin Library is gilt on all edges. It contains a special introduction from Harrison Salisbury that appears in no other edition of this title. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
